CS12 Miracle Mask

CS12 is a well-known indie skincare brand in Hong Kong, but surprisingly it is actually a Malaysian brand. I have been seeing a lot of hype about the Miracle Mask, which is a sheet mask, especially in magazines and social media. I tried to get it sometime at the end of the year, unfortunately, it was out of stock. That resulted in me contacting the owner of the brand to reserve it for me when they have it in stock. I thought she had forgotten about my request, surprisingly, last month she contacted me and told me the mask is back in stock. 


Brand: CS12

Product name: Miracle Mask

Purchase from: Directly from CS12 website

Price: RM218

Size: 7 sheets; 30ml per sheet

Price breakdown: RM31.15 per sheet

LUSH Mother of Pearl Bath Bomb & Jasmine Cream Bubble Bar

 



I was so thrilled to try out the latest LUSH's Bath Bomb and Bubble Bar - Mother of Pearl and Jasmine Cream respectively. These two releases are limited edition in conjunction with Mother's Day. The bath bombs provide skin benefit (depending on the types of bath bombs you choose), meanwhile, the bubble bar gives the luscious bubble foam. So, the two have different functions, hence I put both into my bath for a self-pampering time that I deserve.

New In: DIOR Forever 3 New Makeup Must-Haves

The most important part of makeup lies in the skin. The perfection of flawless skin is the base for all types of makeup whether you want to go for a no-makeup look or a full runway fashion show makeup. Hence, I’ve invested a bit in the new Dior Forever range - Dior Forever Skin Veil SPF20 Primer, Dior Forever Fluid Foundation & Dior Forever Cushion Powder to achieve the flawless skin illusion.

Trying Out New Brand: Huxley Beauty

Huxley Beauty isn't a new brand in the K-Beauty market. However, I just managed to receive some of the products to try out, courtesy of my friend, Eros. I have been seeing this brand everywhere, especially on the major Korean beauty online stores. This brand picks up its popularity some time end of the year 2019. 

The products that I have here are from the Secret of Sahara range, which focuses on hydration.

After I did some research, I found out that Huxley is safe for sensitive skin. Albeit, the ingredients do contain fragrance, they are mostly FDA approved (means it is safe for food & drug). It is the ultimate minimalist skincare as they use very minimal ingredients that packs a punch, also keeping the packaging as simple as possible. 

There is a rumour that flight attendants in South Korea swear by this brand to keep their skin hydrated in flight. 

Here's my very brief first impression of the brand.

DIOR Prestige La Micro-Huile de Rose Advanced Serum

This is by far the most expensive skincare product that I've ever bought. Off the shelf, it is RM1380. That's a price tag above minimum wage in Malaysia. It is ridiculous! It is unnecessary! What a show-off! But yet, my irrational mind thinks I should get it. In my defense, I was presented with a good opportunity. My bff (his blog is Fishmeatdie, do show him some love), told me he has some Isetan vouchers and he could give it to me. So technically, I spent RM800+ on this serum. It is still a hefty price tag, but at least I got some value back. In any angle that I tried to present my case, behind my mind there is still a little whisper that says, I shouldn't have bought it. Anyway, we have come to this, so, I might as well make use of my experience with this luxury serum and share with you some thoughts. 


Brand: DIOR Prestige

Product Name: La Micro-Huile de Rose Advanced Serum

Purchase from: Dior Beauty counter/boutique

Price: RM1380

Lipsticks That Won't Stain the Mask

While adapting to the new-norm of wearing a surgical mask every time we go out, I discover a new problem - I can't put on my usual favorite lipsticks that don't stain the mask. This problem has prompted me to search for good transfer-proof lipsticks and I have narrow it down to my top 3 favorites here. 

Generally, those matte liquid lipsticks are good to be worn under the masks. However, I did experience some that still transfer onto my mask. And liquid lipsticks are drying on my lips, hence it could be a hit or miss if you try out certain brands. 

I love these 3 lipsticks and been rotating the use quite often.

2020 Beauty Favourites

2020 was a weird year. I stopped blogging due to a lack of motivation. The momentum slowed down as we enter the lockdown phase and personally, it was a life-changing phase as well. I must say I didn’t try new makeup that much due to staying at home mostly and wearing mask at all times. But I still discovered some good products that I could share with you guys:
