Beauty product review:Maybelline brow mascara

I first saw this product in one of the magazines that I subscribed via the ipad.When I went to Luxola,I saw that it was available and of course I had to buy it.This brow mascara is not available here yet though.I've been using this for about 2 months now and I love it.

Since I have naturally thin/sparse eyebrows,this is perfect to fatten it up!It is very easy to use and it stays all day long until you take it of with your makeup remover.
Without eyebrow mascara

The only downside was that it is a bit 'wet' so you have to make sure that you don't accidentally smudge it when it's not dry yet.But it dries very quickly.I'm saying that it's 'wet' because in comparison with my Bourjois eyebrow mascara.
With eyebrow mascara

The brush looks very unique to me and apparently it was created in such a way so that it can reach all of the hairs on your brow.The brush is called the Sculpting Ball Brush.How aptly named right?

If you from the pictures above,you can see how the mascara managed to thicken my eyebrows and it looked natural.I love it!

The item is sold out on Luxola so I can't remember how much I paid for it..but I can tell you it wasn't expensive.Perhaps it'll be available here in Malaysia soon.

My "beauty" wishlist

Since I'll be joining this Secret Santa thing with my Be a Beauty Correspondent pals all over the world and I've no idea who she might be..I was told that I can make a wish list as well.It will give her some insight on what to buy for me :)


1)Candles
Technically,candles aren't considered as a beauty product?But they smell so good!

I've always looked longingly at Bath and Body Works candles wishing they'd open their store here quick!We have limited access here when it comes to nice smelling and affordable candles.I would love to get my hands on some of their candles below or any awesome smelling ones.






2)Sephora Favorites:Draw The Line

I love eyeliners and I wear them everyday.Next to mascara,they make my eyes look awake!This box of various brand of eyeliners from Sephora is definitely something that I would love to get.I wish our Sephora store here would sell it.


3)Sephora Favorites: Lashstash

I love mascaras and this box is filled with mini size of some of the best mascara being sold in Sephora.



4)Lush Bath bombs/melts/bubble bars






I just loveee bath bombs/melts or bubble bars.I love taking baths!But I can only do so during holidays because I don't have a bath tub at home.My honeymoon will be in January and I have some bath bombs..so can't wait to use it then.


5)Lush Ro's Agran Body Conditioner


I've heard so many great things about this body conditioner and I really want to try it!Plus I love the scent of a rose :)

6)Sephora Collection Gold Star Eye Brush Set

I have a lack of eyeshadow brushes...these from Sephora comes with a sleek gold tube that makes it easy for me to carry it with me when I'm travelling/out.

Well..that's some of the beauty prodcuts that I've been eyeing on at the moment.Can't wait to send out my Secret Santa gift and receive it as well.Pretty cool that my Secret Santa could be living anywhere in the world!

Current beauty favourites:Lip creams(NYX+Collection) + Lipsticks(Revlon)

I have a lot of lip products.Somehow I've amassed a lot of lipsticks,lip stain,lip balm and many more.But I don't have lip gloss because I just don't like how it feels on my lips.

I've never been a fan of lip gloss and the only lip product in tube form that I've had are lip stains.But lately I've been obsessed with these lip creams.They're just awesome and goes on so smoothly on my lips.And the colours are so beautiful.Plus I love that they turn matte when you put it on.
Both lip creams are inexpensive as well.The Collection one I think cost rm16-17?And the NYX one cost me..rm23-26?Sorry I can't remember the exact price because I bought them awhile back.
Top:NYX Antwerp. Bottom:Collection Fairy Cake
As you can see from the colour swatch above,the Antwerp one is more pink while the Fairy Cake is more coral.I love both colours.Antwerp is much more bright while Fairy Cake is more subdued.

Such cute names

Ever since I bought my first tube of Revlon's Super Lustrous lipstick a few weeks back(Rosewine colour)..I can't stop buying more.The colours are so pretty and it glides smoothly on my lips as well.I love the packaging too.
So pretty!

Recently while I was out and about with Aimi,we somehow stumbled upon a beauty warehouse sale and I managed to grab three of Revlon's Super Lustrous for only rm15 each!I couldn't swatch the colours while I was buying them because it was a warehouse sale.So I just went with my guts.
Colours!
I actually wanted to buy more because there were so many pretty colours but Aimi managed to restrain myself hahaha. My favourite colour is the Raisin Rage lipstick.It's different than all the other lipsticks that I have,Raisin Rage looks very autumnal.It's dark on the lips and very vamp-ish.

For Pink In The Afternoon,it's very sweet and feminine.Great for everyday.While Peach Me is a very light coral.Perfect for your lips if you're going for a very bold eye makeup look.Peach Me has a pearl sheen to it because it's under the Pearl range.All of my Super Lustrous lipsticks range falls under the Creme category.So Peach Me is my first time buying a lipstick with a Pearl sheen.

I definitely prefer the creme range than the pearl/shine range.I would definitely recommend girls out there to buy Revlon's Super Lustrous lipstick range.It retails at rm30 at the drugstores..if I'm not mistaken.It's not expensive and the quality is great.I have a lot of lipsticks and this range is one of my favourites.

Book review:Shopaholic To The Stars by Sophie Kinsella

I love Sophie Kinsella's books since I was a teen.I've never missed buying them.Even now when I have a lot of ebooks on the ipad,I'll still buy the paperback version of her books.But I've got to say..her latest book was..I don't know..a little lacklustre? I also loathe the fact that the ending left us hanging and that there'd be a continuation..seriously?

The reason why I've been buying the Shopaholic series by Sophie for years because Becky's shopping addiction was fun to read.In this book however..Becky was just horrid and selfish.She was such a fame-whore that it was sad :( If you read the review online..it's not pretty!It feels like a different person was writing this book.

In this book,Becky is now living in Los Angeles because Luke is handling the PR for Sage Seymour,a famous Hollywood actress.Becky is determine to become her personal stylist.But somehow she was offered to become the personal stylist for Sage's enemy instead.A lot of other characters are mentioned in this book..Luke,Minnie,Suze,Tarquin,Danny,Alicia and Becky's parents.

I honestly feel that Sophie Kinsella tried too hard to make this book as a great read because the last one(Mini Shopaholic) was four years ago..but it didn't become what it intended to be.There's a celebrity plot twist and also an element of mystery involving Becky's dad..this book was just very bizarre to me.It was all over the place.I love Becky's character throughout the Shopaholic series but not in this book!She did redeemed herself in the end though..but still..it was a bit nauseating how fame crazy she was!

Four years was a long time waiting and honestly I felt disappointed.If you guys are planning to buy this book..don't.Just download the free epub version.Sorry,not sorry.Sophie Kinsella,the next book better be good!
