Airport Shopping at Heathrow!

Yay I’m back in KL after THE most relaxing flight ever due to having an entire row (and pretty much the whole plane) to myself! I arrived at Heathrow airport with ample time to spare before my flight, so I decided to do a bit of shopping.

First I stopped by at Boots to see they had tons of sales and package deals for their cosmetics so of course I dove right in! After much consideration I decided to get a Max Factor Lipfinity 24 Hour Lip Colour and the Colour Elixir Lip Liner in a matching shade!

Lipfinity comes in a set that includes the actual lip colour, in a shade called Spiritual (this pleases me), and a suuuper buttery balm that seals in moisture as the colour is a matte, which is known to be pretty drying. The liquid lip colour smells delish and true to its name, stays on all day and night until I take it off! There are still traces of the original swatch I took from the tester product on my arm that I never bothered to actually remove with makeup remover, and it’s been like four days since I tried it! I’m pretty impressed!

These two combined came up to a total of $15.99, which made me eligible for a Bright Eyed Glamour box set worth $33! Inside were 3 full sized (Not tester sized but FULL SIZED!) products: The Max Factor Eye Luminizer in Light/Medium, Colour Elixir Gloss in Glossy Toffee and the Voluptuous False Lash Effect Mascara in Waterproof black. ABSOLUTE JACKPOT YOU GUYS.

ALL these products are gonna get a ton of use from me, I haven’t tried the mascara or the gloss yet but I’m loving the Eye Luminizer! It’s a perfect match for my skin tone and makes my skin super silky and smooth, I don’t even have to use a primer anymore for my eye makeup! Completely in love with my purchases and winnings haha.

Next up I headed over to Victoria’s Secret, where a Buy 2 Get 1 Free deal was going on! Obviously I couldn’t miss this opportunity even though I have never shopped at VS all my life (I’m more of a LaSenza girl tbh). After checking out the selection of glosses, body sprays and various balms and lotions eligible for the sale, I decided to get two Warm & Cozy body mists and a Beauty Rush gloss in Mocktail Hour.

C360_2016-05-18-13-27-14-453C360_2016-05-18-13-27-34-644

Why did I get two of the same thing? BECAUSE THESE MISTS SMELL GATDAM DELICIOUS. They smell like warm vanilla cookies and anything that smells like COOKIES I must have at least two! My Beauty Rush gloss was more of a “oml that’s so pretty” kinda purchase, because who doesn’t want sparkly lip gloss with a metallic lip keychain attached?! I haven’t actually tried or even opened the gloss yet, and to be completely honest it’s probably gonna end up one of those items I just keep in my bag because it’s cute and glittery and not much else (a lot like the stacking Sephora lip glosses Marie “lent” me literally a year ago ewps), but I regret absolutely nothing.

So there’s my mini beauty haul from Heathrow Airport! I’m actually looking forward to going back there to see what other deals are on!

Where I’m At

Hay gais!

So I’ve been super busy moving in and starting my second semester at uni, and now before I knew it I’m already closer to the end of the semester than the start! I’d like to say it’s been super eventful and a ton of fun, but it’s been pretty quiet around here lately especially since I’ve moved to a much nicer part of town (probably the nicest part of town where all the hotels and casinos are!). I had a few ups and downs returning to London from KL and experienced what is described as Seasonal Affective Disorder (also known as SAD lmao) which is basically a bout of depression that tends to hit in the winter months due to seasonal factors such as shortening daylight hours and whatever else. I was actually super down the past month or so since I got back from warm and sunny KL, which seems about normal when I read up on the symptoms… Anyways I feel a lot better now that I actually know what was wrong with me, because initially I thought it was actual depression coming back (I was afflicted with a pretty serious case of depression many years ago and I barely made it out alive) and it just made me feel scared and helpless because of how fucking terrible it was the first time. Luckily there are a few things that can help with SAD, such as daylight therapy lamps that basically shine a super bright light meant to emulate daylight and it’s supposed to trick your hormones into forgetting everything is cold and grey and yucky!

To be fair though, it hasn’t been all that cold and grey and yucky and now that I’m living on the 10th floor I get a fair amount of sunlight even on the days I just lounge around in bed all day hehe. There’s also an awesome little gym on the ground floor which I LOVE, and now I’m hellbent on losing those last few kilos on my road to 45kg (which, I’ll say it again, is a perfectly healthy and normal weight for my height).

What else is new… Oh yeah, I started an online shop called Moonlit Creatures! Caution, this shop is for cute witches and bad bitches ONLY, but feel free to clicky click if you aspire to be at least one of those things. I’ve been having fun making jewelry and although it’s only been open a couple of weeks, I’ve already received nearly 200 likes on the Facebook page, 2300+ followers on Instagram (and counting — I gain about 700 followers a week!) and generated a fair number of local and international sales despite January being the absolute worst month for shopping! So I’m feeling very positive and optimistic!

Here are a few of my fave items from the store!

Making jewelry has been super soothing for me and helps keep me calm, plus I’ve always enjoyed running online stores and it’s probably gonna be good for my CV! I have a lot of time on my hands anyways seeing as I only go to uni a couple times a week because apparently its a thing to pay £11,000 for eight days or learning per month… Anyways. All in all I’m feeling slightly more positive about things than I was like a week ago and I’m quite sure things will start looking even better once the weather warms up a bit PLUS I’m looking forward to my visit back home (again) next month! Let’s just hope I don’t turn up so hard I end up in hospital again!

🌸 A Common Beauty Mistake You Might Be Making | Korean Face Mask Review 🌸

CYMERA_20151221_011753
Hi guys! After three months in the cold, dry London air (and one night of super heavy drinking at Changkat with Marie) my skin was looking a bit dull and lackluster, so the moment I got the chance in KL I picked up Hold Me Tight (a lifting and firming mask) and Miss Invisible Pore (a pore tightening mask) from the Korean brand Faith in Face. There was also a whitening mask available, but since I’m not interested in looking pale I gave that a pass. These masks are pretty pricey, but I was willing to pay a little bit extra for the quality! And as a marketing student I’m a sucker for cute packaging. Faith in Face masks are paraben free, with no added mineral oil and free from animal testing! Yay!

The packs are pretty text heavy, which I like because I’m always up for a few extra tips and tricks. Thanks for the advice, Betty!

CYMERA_20151220_150135

So tonight I washed all my makeup off and now I’ve got Hold Me Tight on my face. Just FYI, Faith in Face specializes in hydrogel masks, which are a bit different from fabric sheet masks in the sense that they’re meant to be a whole lot more nourishing and moisturizing, and they’re also a whole lot more squishy and stretchy which makes them pretty fun to play with! They have very soft jelly-like consistency which is super soothing on the skin.  Some of the key ingredients in Hold Me Tight include:

  • Copper Tripeptide – Known to liven and firm the skin without irritation
  • Rooibos Extract and Red Ginseng Extract – Popular Korean ingredients known to reduce stress and improve firmness in skin
  • Adenosine – Reduces the appearance of wrinkles

The mask itself comes in two pieces – One covers the top half of your face and the other piece goes over your jawline, chin and lips. Pretty convenient if you ask me. The mask halves come fully enveloped in protective film for ease of application!

It took me a little while to get these on my face, but I eventually managed without too much hassle! I’m not gonna post any face mask selfies because I happen to find those pretty creepy and all round unflattering. Anyways!

So about that one big mistake you’re probably making with your face masks… Typically you’re meant to leave them on for 20-30 minutes. A lot of the time I find myself leaving my masks on for way longer, cos like, that probably gives you better results, right? Super wrong. I’ve found that leaving your face mask on for longer than 30 minutes can trap bacteria under your mask and cause you to break out! Make sure to remove your mask about 25 minutes in to avoid acne, ain’t nobody got time fo dat. Life is hard as it is I know u hear me.

Here’s a close up of the back of the pack for you to read while I remove my mask.

Normally I wash my face off with water after removing a mask because I feel kinda sticky and gross, but Hold Me Tight leaves a silky smooth residue that my skin absorbed almost right away, so I’m leaving it on overnight! I’m not feeling any immediate tightening effects, but being in my 20s my skin isn’t all that saggy anyways. I do feel refreshed and my face does feel somewhat hydrated though! I’ll check in again in the morning to let you guys know if the bounce factor has improved. Night night!

EDIT// Oh. My. GOD. YOU GUYS MY FACE IS SO SMOOTH AND FIRM. I went to bed like “Nahh lmao this isn’t gonna do shit” but omg when I woke up this morning my skin is super taut and bouncy. I couldn’t stop touching my face all day! It’s nearly 9pm now and my skin still feels refreshed and soft. I’m very happy to report this product lives up to my expectations and I can’t wait to try Miss Invisible Pore! If it works as well as Hold Me Tight I’ll definitely be stocking up on Faith in Face products before I head back to London. You can get these at most leading pharmacies, I got mine at Watson’s for aroud RM10!

Shop Emmin Review

So guise I’m gonna be posting reviews right away! Today I’ll be reviewing Shop Emmin, a delightful little store based in the UK for chic accessories and the like. They recently sent me some gorgeous faux septum rings which I absolutely just fell in love with! I’m not usually one for accessories myself but these babies are to die for! Oh, and did I mention they ship worldwide? Gotta love that international shipping!

I have such a serious need for like, ALL THOSE CASES lbr

If you click on the link I provided earlier you’ll be taken to their online store where you’ll find a variety of seriously trendy accessories, including the ever popular Dakota Marble Effect Phone Case… Another reason why I CRI because I don’t have an iPhone and probably never will because my Android-loyal boyfriend would disown me IMMEDIATELY. However I’m happy enough with my three gorgeous septum rings huehue. Their phone cases range between £4-£6 and if you ask me that’s a bargain! I will be eternally grateful when they start producing covers for the Samsung Galaxy, but for now I’ll just have to leave the cute cases for you Apple types.

Too cute! Pria septum ring in copper, and Zoa septum rings in gold and silver!

On to my super adorable faux septum rings that I mentioned earlier! Look how pretty they are! I’m actually surprised at how quality they are too, I’ve had them for a couple weeks now and they haven’t broken or chipped or anything! The copper Pria septum ring is embedded with several diamente rhinestones, which you would normally expect to fall off within like 0.3 seconds but they’ve been intact all this while. They’re pretty comfy to wear too! You can shop these gorgeous faux septum rings and many more designs at Shop Emmin, but you might want to act fast because they’re selling out so so quick and you honestly don’t want to miss out! In addition to iPhone cases and faux septum rings they also have makeup brushes, metallic temporary tattoos and a few more goodies that I’m gonna leave you guys to find out for yourselves.

The cherry on top? I have a special discount code for you (; Quote “cyberxkitten” at checkout to receive a special secret discount just for you! Hurry though, stocks are limited! Oh, and don’t forget to check out their Instagram where they are currently hosting a giveaway so you don’t even have to pay to get your hands on these lush items!
