On my vanity part 1

Stash 1 : A mix of products from Japan, Korea, Indonesia and the USA . We have SKII, IUNIK, beauty of joseon, Wardah, skinlab, Apieu,

Approaching 40 and the obsession is with skin care, as a good base (face) will enhance the makeup and complexion as a whole. I have been very diligent in applying my moisturiser, sunscreen and retinol for the past year and am pleased with the results. My skin breaks out infrequently which is a hurray.

After tackling facial acne, I plan to reduce the hyperpigmented areas on the elbow and knees. Moisturise, moisturise, moisturise. For this, I have incorporated Amlactin into my body lotion regime. It smells horrible though because of the ammonia and the results are not visible since I am not consistent yet.

Evidently, an avid fan of SKII.

Stash 2 : the contact lenses and hair accessories

I love adorable hairbands, especially the ones with ears or anything of that sort. I share this collection with my daughter of course. I have also been trying other contact lenses brand because FreshKon takes ages to arrive online. Probably due to high demand. The new brand I am trying is Horien (Kira Kira) from Taiwan. The colours are pretty. My favourite is Ash Rose but the ones available in the store are the daily disposable ones. I am still loyal to Blincon because the brown looks natural on my eyes.

I also keep my hair rollers in this basket. Claws and clips are somewhere underneath there.

Online Store : Mr Lens .. again

My trusted courier service [read: POSMALAYSIA] delivered a wonderful package from MrLens.Com yesterday. My box of contact lenses were packed nicely in a box and also secured in a ziplock bag!! I collect these gems – they can be useful while travelling to hold my passports. He he. And of course those cute personal touches – this time a lollipop although I loved the gummy bears more.

As usual, I bought my monthly supply of contact lenses. My favourite so far is the Blincon brand specifically in Sweetie Brown and Freshkon Alluring Eyes in Winsome Brown. This time around I decided to try something new and purchased the Freshkon Mosaic. Well, it has been around in the market for more than a year but I have yet to try it as they were not much honest raving reviews from normal bloggers as opposed to the Butterfly bloggers.

Butterfly bloggers  = those who write on beauty related stuff and what not

Having being convinced of its natural and blending features especially in Asian women – through blog posts by non butterfly bloggers and as evident by photos taken by only then the butterfly bloggers, I decided to give it a go. Plus, they are on promotion on the site.

Pictures will have to come later. I have a big big event to go cover as a medical team this evening.

It would be nice if you could purchase the lenses through my affiliate link . See you around. Bye.

Online Contact Lense Store : MrLens

“Beauty is how you feel inside, and it reflects in your eyes. It is not something physical.”
Sophia Loren

I bought my contact lenses online the other day from a Malaysian based website. MrLens must be tremendously happy of the effort made by beauty bloggers in recommending the website to potential customers. One such customer is myself having read beauty blogs by our very own Malaysian bloggers. And boy there were lots of them.

The website was clean and user-friendly. I loved that MrLens had a very wide array of options to choose from. It makes experimenting with a new brand seems like an adventure as I scroll through the specs and stuff.

The order was processed in a swift manner and I felt that the delivery charges were acceptable. Although I did not receive a free contact lense case, I still get a small gesture of thought in the form of free gummy bear candy. Auw,, so sweet! And it came in a ziplock bag to protect the contents from being spoilt.

Innovations are also taking place as they offer affiliate programmes, selling glasses online and even promoting body shop items at its site! So there are plenty more exciting things at hand.

Will I restock on my contact lenses from MrLens again? Yes, I will.

Contact lenses

“Competence, like truth, beauty, and contact lenses, is in the eye of the beholder.”

I realized I was far-sighted at the age of 12. I told my father that I wasnt able to see clearly and after a modified Snellen test by Father [read: pointing at random words on house objects], we went straight to Focus POint and got my first pair of glasses. The nerd type. Those plastic ones with thick frames. I had to oblige considering I wasnt the one forking out the cash and that Father did not trust me with the much prettier frames.

So I wore glasses throughout high school as an ugly duckling. Got labelled as Tweety the bird as well. And somehow it was only at the start of college years did I met my best friend, Contact Lenses.

I first experimented with the normal clear lenses for the first year. Then, I fell in love with Fresh Colourblends in Amethyst. Once the Korean inspired BIg-Eye Lens came out, it instantly became my craze. I just had to get one and my first such pair was from FreshKOn in Black. I was so excited with its release that I sanggup order online dari UK just because kamek teringin nak makei. Yezza.

I still prefer the Big-Eye type as compared to the normal sized ones. And just early this week I placed an order through this pretty cool local site. FocusOp.Com. My merchandise surprise! surprise! arrived in less than a week. I was ecstatic. I bought ;

FreshKon Winsome Brown

FreshLook Colorblends in Turquoise
