Sponsored Beauty Review – Lovemore Japan Soymilk Enzyme Moisturizing Smoothing Mask

Was greeted by a lovely box of 5 pcs of mask of Lovemore Japan Soymilk Enzyme Moisturizing and Soothing Mask when I got home from work the other day. I have combination skin type which main problem rests upon the oily T-zone that targets the forehead, nose and chin. However, more often than not, the rest of your face e.g. cheeks tend to be drier as well. Hence, whenever I’m on the look out for skin care products, I often source for moisturising and hydrating products. This is important because having to stay in an air-conditioned room (at work) almost the whole day and sometimes, at night, our skin tends to get drier and moisture from our skin gets ‘sucked’ up. Thus, in addition to adequate hydration of fluid intake, we must hydrate our skin on the outside as well. 

This is my first experience using Lovemore masks and although the effects produced are quite acceptable, I am not very pleased with the quality of their mask. 

Here’s why.

1. The mask is dripping wet. Yes, it might imply that Lovemore doesn’t compromise on their amount of essence but dripping wet? It’s extremely troublesome and messy. I had a difficult time trying to snap good quality pics while the masks drips on like nobody’s business. 

2. I tore the mask within 5 secs when I got hold of it. The mask quality, in my opinion, is rather poor, although their descriptions seem rather awesome. Comparing to other masks such as My Beauty DiarySexylook and Leaders InSolution, Lovemore’s masks are of the least quality I’ve come across. 🙁 Or maybe it’s just me, I’m just not gentle enough 🙁

3. It doesn’t fit well on my face, but I can’t blame them because I have a long sharp almond-like face shape. But well, the overlappings of the mask was quite significant. Or perhaps I’ve lost weight, HAHA.

The aftermath was great. The immediate effect that was obvious was the instant brightening results the mask produced! This somehow surprised me because whitening and brightening isn’t one of the functions of this mask but yet it managed to! I reckon it might somehow be due to the Vitamin C ingredient 🙂 I massaged the remaining essence in the packet onto my face for 2 mins or so and the essence subsequently was absorbed into my face. It didn’t leave any sticky feeling! Plus, I waited for awhile about 2 mins as well to apply my moisturiser. I’m currently using the Kose Supreme Sekkisei’s moisturiser I

Woke up this morning to a more soft supple skin and it was well-hydrated. Skin feels more plumped as well. So not so bad for a start, except that Lovemore should focus more on their quality of masks. It would be perfect if they are as fantastic as the rest of the competitiors 🙂 Even the cotton mask from Sexylook didn’t tear that easily compared to Lovemore!

Top 10 Japanese Hairstyles & Hair Colour for 2012

 

Before the hike of KPOP, the craze and limelight was shone upon the Japanese for their commendable fashion sense. Besides fashion apparels and cosmetics, your hair can either make or break your image as well.

So, you’re bored of your current hairstyle? Looking for fresh new ideas for what’s in currently?

Let us take a tour and satisfy our visual hunger on fashionable hairstyles and hair colour by the Japanese!

Now, when you first step into a hair salon, you would most probably be provided with magazines for reference purposes and most often than not, they encapsulate gorgeous illustrations of Japanese and their different hairstyles and colours!

So, what are the top 10 most fashionable hairstyles and hair colour for this year 2012?

As you can see, most of the hairstyles are filled with lots of bangs and curls. The hair ends are curled in different directions inwards and outwards. Also, most hairstyles are styled to create the ‘out of the bed’ look which can be sexy in a way. Top hair colours for 2012 would include Brown (Milk Tea Brown, Chestnut Brown, Dark Chocolate), Red (Sweet Pink, Antique Rose) and Orange Brown (Sweet Apricot and Mocha Orange)! 

Consider chopping off your locks for a fresh face look!

Happy styling!

Fashion DIYs!

Back in my younger days, I used to design earrings, necklaces and even customise shoes to sell!

I have always been a fan of arts and crafts and reminisce those days where my mommy would chide me for spending so much time on drawing rather than completing my homework. I have also won some competitions too back in my school days.

Decided to showcase some of my talents (ahem) but can’t find pictures on the accessories which I had handmade but here are some of the customisations and designs for the shoes! 🙂

The Strawberry Shortcake and Thomas and Friends were special orders for my niece Shannan and nephew Jaden respectively but they have since outgrown them 🙁

Although not perfect, but I had fun and compliments with them! 🙂

I decided to give up on this online business despite the little competition from others because designing is just too time-consuming, which applies across the board generally for online shops. Plus, the efforts and time taken to complete the designs are not justified by their price. 🙁

Well unless you have absolute passion and drive, and most importantly all the time in the world and doing it on a full-time basis, (you’re not working and studying), then I’d say, go for it! 😀

A little update on my hauls over the weekend

I don’t usually shop at retail stores unless really necessary, for example, to get stuffs from convenience stores. 

Shopped over at GMarket, otherwise now known as Qoo10, and bought these items (and more to come! =x)

Picture

This seller on gmarket provides very efficient delivery and all items were packed nicely and bubble wrapped for the eyeliners, to prevent any breakage. 

Have been wanting to try out nu bra for the longest time but decided to get the newer version of the bra with adhesive sides. It has sticky sides but I wonder how effective it is and whether it would slip off any moment while wearing it. Also, cleaning it seems to be a little problematic as well as it might lose its stickiness? It came with a free underwear too and it was a G-String pls -.-

Anyway, tried out some swatches of the eyeliners (Silver, white copper and black). The silver being the lightest and faintest didn’t excite me at all. Am loving the white and black one best. White ones are perfect for brightening your eye rims (the inner corners of your eyes near your tear ducts) and black ones are awesome for a little rugged look for smokey eyes. Would definitely post up an entry on these eyeliners when I get a chance to use them.

And yes, bought the black double eyelid tapes again! Really awesome! Even my colleague commented that I look different with them and that they are nice 🙂 Got it cheaper compared to the previous seller on GMarket.

Heh, definitely 2 thumbs up for this seller!

You guys can start shopping away at this shop : http://www.qoo10.sg/shop/wow_wild?goodscode=405256939#ci 

Out damn Monday Blues! Now, begone! 

ENJOY SHOPPING! 😀

Food Reviews – 3D Fondant Customised Birthday Cake by Cake Funtasie

As promised that I would review on the birthday cake which I ordered for bf in my previous post on the cupcakes by Cake Funtasie, so here it is.
Picture

Picture

Picture

Picture

Picture

Got a little lost trying to find the cake shop at AMK after work and when reached, there was nobody mending the shop. I had to ring the bell and only to realised that they don’t accept nets! This really pissed me off because any shop should accept nets. If they don’t accept Mastercard, I understand, but simple basic NETS?

Sheesh, so I had to walk around the whole estate to look for the damn ATM machine because the owner didn’t specify the directions properly.

Her customer service via email and in person was rather bad. She gave that nonchalant attitude and when clarified with regards to the costs breakdown (cupcakes, cake and delivery and after discount), she provided me with the wrong total price and hence, I wanted to know the breakdown of the costs for each individual item. She made it seem as if I was calculative over $2 and said that it’s alright that I don’t have to pay. But the thing is, it’s just $2 yes I know and I don’t mind paying extra if that amount is right. I don’t wish to short change her as well. But her attitude via email was disappointing. Worse still, her customer service in person is even more disappointing as well. It might be because I had provided her the negative feedback with regards to her cupcakes but if that’s the case, she should open up to criticisms. I did not state much but informed her that bf and I weren’t satisfied with her cupcakes.

Thank god the cake tasted alright although a little too sweet. I ordered a 1kg (min size) chocolate fudge 3D Fondant cake and am glad they didn’t taste as bad as the cupcakes. Only thing is, the chocolate fudge looks and tasted somewhat like brownie instead.

Also, when asked how long can the cupcakes and cake be kept refrigerated, she told me that I should have them completed on the same day they are collected, which means we have to gobble down 6 cupcakes on 1 day and a 1kg sweet cake on another. She even told me that they would go stale if they are refrigerated. Odd, this is the first time I’m hearing this, that refrigerating food would cause the food to go stale………….

Anyway, I think she is mending the shop solely on her own because there were no one else beside her. Also, after collecting and paying for the cake, she immediately went to the back of the counter…the same where she came from when I arrived, hence the absence of staff.

I do not recommend anyone to try out Cake Funtasie at all.

Hope these reviews help! 🙂

Sponsored Beauty Reviews – Leaders InSolution AC-Dressing Mask

Lately, I noticed that there are obvious tiny pimples popping out around my foreheads and brows.Thus, to target this problem, I had chosen to try out the AC-Dressing mask from Leaders InSolution out of the myriads of different types of masks kindly sponsored by Cossy!

AC-Dressing mask helps to target skin problems by soothing skin irritation and redness as well as to reduce scars of troubled spots.

This is my 3rd time using Leaders InSolution masks and I must say that they never fail to prove their worth. I love how the mask fits snugly onto my skin without having to adjust much and without having to worry that it might slip off as well. The sheet masks are made of absolute high quality and are enriched in generous amount of essence, but not dripping wet, hence the hassles and messiness are reduced. Also, the essence come in thick liquid which are not diluted in nature, which only goes to show that Leaders InSolution does not cut back on the quality to reduce cost and moreover, they are sold rather cheaply in Watsons! You now need not have to burn holes in your pockets just to achieve comparable results with top brands.

Although claimed to reduce pores, nothing significantly has been seen. However, the healing pimple that I had has now had its scab off, which I believe it helps to alleviate the sore and redness of pimples as well as to speed up the healing and recovery process of pimples.

My skin feels much smoother and more supple now, and I didn’t wake up to the usual oily T-zone today! It really helps to reduce the sebum produced and I would definitely recommend those with combination skin (oily T-zone) and oil skin to try out this mask!

Get them cheaper at Cossy today! 🙂

Food Reviews – The Prime Society Steakhouse @ Dempsey Hill

Planned bf a surprise dinner at The Prime Society yesterday! It was an advanced birthday dinner since his actual falls on a weekday.

Decided to bring him to TPS instead of Morton’s Steakhouse and Wolfgang Puck because firstly, we have tried the latter and secondly, I was advised by my colleague that Morton is more expensive than TPS. I’ve read reviews before deciding on the restaurant and seems like TPS changed their chef and there were some bad reviews.

Here’s my take and the pictures!!! 😀

OOTD! 😀

Dear’s very bloody Rangers Valley Grain Fed Rump Cap
This was cooked till medium-rare as the waitress advised us that the other alternative, which is medium cooked, would be tougher. And true enough, although it tasted really bloody, it’s much tender and softer than mine. Easier to chew and swallow. But one thing bad is that, tasting too much bloodiness does make you sick of it, as I was
Picture

Picture

My fatty Grass Fed Cape Grim Sirloin Steak. I chose Sirloin steak as recommended by the waitress, assuring us that it was tastier than rib eye and tenderloin. But there were lots of fats and I had a difficult time removing them. It was also tougher and drier than bf’s steak.
Picture

Red wine and truffle sauce for the steaks! Silly me was dipping the potatoes into the truffle sauce thinking that it was the mustard sauce because we ordered ‘Potato and Mustard’, only to recall and informed by bf that it was for the steaks. OMG.
Picture

Our Potato and Mustard which didnt suit bf’s liking 🙁 And we were so stuffed with the steaks that we couldn’t finish the potatoes.
Picture

Me concentrating…
Picture

Ordered customised cupcakes and cake (coming soon on actual day) and got the cupcakes sent over to TPS. Although they were a little smashed, guess they still look alright. We didn’t have the chance to try them out yet because we were so stuffed with the steaks! But am gonna try them out tonight! Hope they are yummy! 😀 Bought 3 vanilla and 2 chocolate. Got the cake from the same shop as well so that it’s easier to arrange. Collecting the cake tomorrow and good thing is that it’s near my office! 😀

Service at TPS was alright but there are few things which wasn’t satisfactory.

1. Reading other customers’ reviews stating that the waitress would bring slabs of raw beef for us to choose, but that didn’t happen.
2. We waited quite some time for our food. Maybe half an hour or so although there were very few customers.
3. The steak, well as with others, just came as a steak with no sides. Was told that it’s meant this way. No idea because we usually don’t go for such high-end dining for steaks. Plus, we paid so much for the steak only.
4. Waitress serving us didn’t know what to recommend and had to get her colleague to assist her. Meaning not all the staff were well-equipped with the knowledge of beef there.
5. We were supposed to receive a complimentary drink and birthday cake but I had forgotten and the staff didn’t inform me either. Meaning that the person whom I had liased with via email, didn’t communicate this to his staff but highly unlikely because they were informed of the cupcakes delivery. So I’m guessing they either forgotten as well or just kept mum?

Have emailed the staff regarding the complimentary items and will keep you guys updated to see if they are willing to go that extra mile to put a smile on their customers’ faces.

Total damage : $142 for 2 steaks and potatoes, incld GST n service charge.

Sponsored Beauty Review – Lovemore Japan Soymilk Enzyme Moisturizing & Smoothing Mask

Was greeted by a lovely box of 5 pcs of mask of Lovemore Japan Soymilk Enzyme Moisturizing and Soothing Mask when I got home from work the other day. 

I have combination skin type which main problem rests upon the oily T-zone that targets the forehead, nose and chin. However, more often than not, the rest of your face e.g. cheeks tend to be drier as well. Hence, whenever I’m on the look out for skin care products, I often source for moisturising and hydrating products. This is important because having to stay in an air-conditioned room (at work) almost the whole day and sometimes, at night, our skin tends to get drier and moisture from our skin gets ‘sucked’ up. Thus, in addition to adequate hydration of fluid intake, we must hydrate our skin on the outside as well. 

This is my first experience using Lovemore masks and although the effects produced are quite acceptable, I am not very pleased with the quality of their mask. 

Here’s why.

1. The mask is dripping wet. Yes, it might imply that Lovemore doesn’t compromise on their amount of essence but dripping wet? It’s extremely troublesome and messy. I had a difficult time trying to snap good quality pics while the masks drips on like nobody’s business.
