Pickup A Trend : Simple Green + Purple

I did this look in salute to Mother Earth and ehem, also because this was one of the easiest eye-do yet still look hot for this Spring season....

:: Simple Green + Purple :: 

Green all over the lids and purple liner on the bottom lash line

I also dabbed a bit of light brown on the crease as the transition color and don't forget your highlighter beneath your brows

Just Curious & LustList : TheBalm

 I've heard about theBalm last year but never did know that we have it in Malaysia.
Haha, I almost wanted to purchase their products in one the US Spree in a forum. Thankfully, fellow beauty blogger blogged about their recent love on theBalm's lip stain that go me up and running to the nearest SaSa branch in Mt. Kiara ;)

For those who may not know, one look at theBalm's collection will instantly remind you of Benefit.
The packaging is similar - comic strips style pin-up girls and so are the names for their product which are usually catchy and sexy ;)

I spend quite some time (till the SA got fed up of waiting and walked away, haha) in SaSa, carefully browsing and swatching/trying each products by theBalm. The collection is not extensive but I'd say it's sufficient and the texture of each product is quite nice and rich.

However, amongst all of theBalm products two of the items that stood out than the rest...

1) BalmShelter - tinted moisturiser

from Temptalia

2) Balms Away - eye makeup break up (eye makeup remover)

These two are definitely in my 'LustList' (beauty product Wishlist :P)

Based in California, this brand aims to bring you the simple but necessary products on-the-go that can turn you instantly glamorous without the hassle.

Product Review: Olay White Radiance CelLucent White Essence & Night Restoring Cream

Hello beautiful,

As promised earlier, let's have a look at Olay White Radiance with CelLucent skincare line...

I know, i'm a tad bit late but as they say better late than never.
After reading and googling, I've finally decided to give Olay another try.

My past experience with Olay was OK (the Olay Total Effect serum, the one with Siti Nurhaliza on it =P) however, there was one product I used from Olay that gave me pimple-fest after my first application. So, with that in mind, trying out another Olay product give me the queasy feeling in the gut. But after much fact-finding, I've managed to muster some courage to give the White Radiance CelLucent range a try...*cross fingers*

Olay recently (not so recent-lah) launched its two new product range:

1) Olay White Radiance CelLucent

2) Olay Regenerist with Micro Sculpting
