FOTD – Deejay on the floor

Last week, I had to spend the nights at work. Due to our production to launch our studio. I was the person in charge of the multimedia. Not the deejay by the way :P The title sounds cool, that’s why the I put them as such.

Everyone in the production will be having some make ups on, so I decided to put up some make up as well. Not that I don’t make up on other days, but I had taken some extra effort to put some extra make up on my face for the event. On normal days, I go bare faced or eyeliner + lipstick one day, lipstick and very subtle blusher on another day. I don’t do my eye shadows to work normally. I keep it for special occasions.

Since I have scored several likes on my profile picture in Facebook, I thought of doing a breakdown on what I had on my face. (though I know the picture looks nice because of the lighting :P)



I applied my compact powder all over my face to create a smooth canvas. I used Pixy compact powder. Cheap and good.

On my lids, I had my Avon Mineral Eye Shadow in Mocha Goddess (Review: here)and a black eye liner pencil on. I skipped mascara though (I forgot to bring mine actually =.="). I first applied the eyeliner, smudged it, applied the eye shadow with a light hand and applied the eyeliner again at the base of my lash line, to make my lashes look thick as though I applied mascara.

Cheeks, I left them bare.

On my lips, I had a nude lipstick. I used my Revlon Blushing Nude lipstick (Review : here)


That’s all. Nothing more and nothing less.

Hope you’ll like my do.

Avon Smooth Mineral Eyeshadow in Mocha Goddess

This is the very first mineral make up stuff i have ever bought. As you all know, the ravings about mineral makeups is that it is not harmful to the skin that even the sensitive skin beauties can use them without any worries.


I found this by accident, as I don’t intend to purchase them at the first place.(Refer here: http://theumbrellagurl.blogspot.com/2012/10/an-unexpected-haul-form-avon.html)

This range comes in loose powder form, that is, you have to be careful to apply it. Fortunately, Avon had its container designed as such so that you don’t have to worry so much about spillage and wastage of the product.


Avon Smooth Mineral in Mocha Goddess comes in a sturdy transparent plastic container with a screw cap lid. I love that the lid is a screw cap lid as it offers a lot of protection. The container also comes with a nice brush, placed halfway dipping into the product. So, you don’t need a separate brush for the shadow, and you don’t have to worry about how much product to pick on a brush as the brush picks up a decent amount of shadow on it. Besides, the brush is soft enough to act as a blending brush.



However, since the product comes in loose form, I get fallouts a lot. I have to apply loose powder on my cheeks generously so that I can brush off the excess shadow.


Mocha Goddess is a warm, shimmery brown with a hint of copper in it. Very subtle for day way, and the color is buildable for more intensity. The shadow lone can be used to create gradient on the eyelid, by placing a generous amount of shadow very close to the lash line and blending the color upwards to soften the color.


Swatch (2 swipes) : L- with base; R- without base

I am not sure about the exact price though, but I can assure you that it is very affordable. The product comes in an amount of 2.3g, and I personally think it will last me for quite sometimes as I prefer it sheer.

It really blends into my skin, offering a slight color to my lids. It’s like the no make up look with a slight shimmering effect (read: not glittery).

Mocha Goddess lasts pretty long, about4-5 hours before it starts fading out without primer. I can say that the color can last up to eight hours on the lid with a good base.

Overall, I love the product, seeing that its’ affordable, great color, smoothness of application and does not irritate the eye.

The only concern is on the fallouts, but as I mentioned above, it can be fixed with loose powder.

An unexpected haul form Avon

Yesterday, I went down to the KFC nearby my workplace to satisfy my humongous appetite I happened to have yesterday. I managed to tame my hunger with an X-Meal and one large cheezy wedges-my all-time favorite form KFC.

The result? A full, happy tummy which gave me a happy grin.

Since I am very full, I decided to walk to the Avon branch here which is just a few stores away from the KFC to look for their Glimmerstick in Starry Night Blue if I am not mistaken about the name of the shade. It’s a very pretty dark blue with sparkles. I bought mine in 2010 and I lost my glimmerstick after just using them a few times, How sad, right? :(

Too bad, they don’t have the one i asked for, they have some new eyeliners though. Some Chrome eyeliner I think. I didn’t pay much attention to the name of the eyeliner.

After flipping through their latest catalogue, I happened to see that they are selling some stuff at a reduced rate. All of the items are new and being cuprous,I grabbed a pack.

At a price of RM12.90, these are what I’ve got:

P/S: I’ve gotten a warning from my BFF to stop buying this goodies since we are planning to purchase something together. Can’t wait!

Paul Frank Lip Smacker Liquid Lip Gloss in Julius’ Strawberry Banana - Review

Phew! What a long title!

So, yea. It’s going to be another review on another lip product.

This product, retailing at about RM16.90 (if I am not mistaken) was a free gift with my Playboy Play It Lovely perfume (review coming soon!).

The packaging is so cute and fits into any purse. Very much travel friendly. Made in U.S.A, the slim tube holds 2.8ml of product. It comes with a doe-feet applicator, so application is a breeze.

The product gives the oh-so-yummy smell. It reminds me of some chewing gum I used to chew on when I was a kid. The smell gives me the taste of the chewing gum. LOL! Its’ sweet and pleasant. However, the smell disappears a few minutes after application. No complains here, as I don’t fancy sweet smelling product on my lips as I tend to lick them off. The product does not taste sweet at all, as compared to the smell, so a BIG okay for me.

One of the things I really adore about this lip gloss is that it is not (read: NOT) sticky at all! But it delivers its job really well, the gloss is just the same as any other lip gloss. Staying power is moderate, about 2 hours after application but I think it will wear off after any drinks or food consumption.

Will I re-purchase?

I don’t think I will. I like its’ consistency and the smell, but I know I can get other lip gloss at a cheaper price.

What I look for in You?

I went back home last weekend, spending time with my dearest family member. Feeling rejuvenated now :)

The power of family love, so divine.

One of our many family talk revolves about me. That I am already 23, going to be 24. That I have to have someone already. That I ought to be ready and prepared for the next stage of life.

That is, the time has come for me to find someone.

I told my mum, I leave it entirely to her and my Dad. They know better I feel. But Mum, she told me that I have to do my part as well. I have to get to know a few guys on my own. I was surprised, but then I came to a realization that I am now grown up and my Mum is being very liberal and open to me. I am happy that she said that, but in the same time I am confused.

Confused as in where can I find for a guy who has the qualities I seek for in a guy?

Almost every girls wants to get married to a Surya,

a Karthi,

a Madhavan

or a Dhanush.

But not all the guys are good looking either. Some has the look but no personality. Some has the personality but goes NULL when it comes to the looks department. Some guys we know we can live a good, secured life while we know we just can’t tolerate some.

Those who scored themselves a gorgeous looking hunk who is smart and is economically secured (work,financial, car, house etc) are really VERY VERY VERY lucky. They just have to make do with some tiny flaws which can be easily overlooked despite the qualities their guy posses.

Coming to the point, what do I look for in a guy as my partner for eternity?

Every girls wants to feel secured when being with him. She wants someone trustworthy, who can guide her in the worldly life and also in the spiritual life. He must be pleasant looking, as she will be spending her entire life with him.You want something pleasant to look at every morning, don’t you? He has to have the good genes, as she wants to have a good looking and smart progeny. At least in my case, I want my husband to be someone who is good looking as I lack in that department. He, has to have a stable job with a handsome income to support our lifestyle. Of course, I will be working as well, but he has to be the main breadwinner. After all, that’s the biggest pride being a man, right?

I want my man to be pious as well, we are nobody without God and I want my life to be blessed always. I want him to be able to guide me.

Besides that, he has to love my parents as how he loves his parents. He must also allow me to do my part of responsibilities to my family. I don’t want him to be the typical Indian guy who has the mentality of girls after getting married should not be responsible for their family.

I want a responsible guy, who takes care of me well, who will do what it takes in his power to keep me happy. I am not someone with high maintenance or difficult to deal with. If he can understand me and if he loves me truly, he’ll know how to keep me happy and contended. I don’t ask much, I want to be loved like how my mum loves me and I want to feel protected and secured like how my dad protects me.

He must be able to love me for who I am, and mustn’t request for more. He shouldn’t be snobbish or pick out on me especially when I am angry. Obviously, I am nowhere perfect, he must know that I get heated easily and with right words and timing, I cool down just in no time.

He must be able to compliment me, mentally and emotionally to create the equilibrium between us. I know everyone wants someone who is funny, caring, sweet, romantic, handsome, macho, etc etc etc. But the most important thing of all, he has to complete me as a whole. He has to fit into me as a missing jigsaw puzzle piece.

There are other qualities which I seek for in a guy, but the ones I mentioned above is the crucial ones.

No matter how hard we try or hope or even dream, only the God knows we deserve whom. Lets live and enjoy the life while we can and appreciate whatever the God gives us.

Wait for the boy that would do anything to be your everything.

Flowers of Life

Today morning, we went to the Spastic Centre for rehearsals. It was tiring for me, since I am now in the process of recovering from a sudden fever+vomit attack yesterday.

It was fun, twirling around with 6 meters of clothes in a sequence of dance steps. It was pretty difficult to work with the kids, but somehow we managed to choreograph the whole dance sequence which is now need to be perfected with practices.

At the end of the show, when everyone is getting ready for the next class, I stood near to the kids, talking craps and giving some motivational words of encouragement to them. They did pretty well today, and they have to know it. Suddenly, one of them, Shaun crawled near to us, beckoning me to come close to him. I went near him. He held my hand and said something. I couldn’t here him, so I asked him to repeat.

He said, “ Kakak, I suka awak,” while looking at me and smiling.

I was taken aback, but I said “ Saya suka you jugak”.

He smiled happily. I felt so good. It was a blessing, I felt.

Shaun, is a child with Cerebral Palsy disorder. At the beginning of the project, my researcher told that all he did was to play dead or not to do anything. He wouldn’t move or say anything, what more to look at others.

But today, he progressed really well and he can move around, talk to people and be loving to people. It’s a really good progress, and we are all happy for him.

The feelings, it is just so difficult for me to express with mere words. It’s a special feelings, which you can only know when you experience them.

And I thank the GOD for giving me a chance to experience the wonderful feeling.

My 1st Daiso Haul



My first ever Daiso haul.

Daiso is so famous in the blogging world. Be it for its make up stuff to its self care product up to its cooking utensils.

And why it is so famous?

It’s an all RM5 item in the shop originated from Japan.

Daiso is similar to our local RM1.99 shop.

Though sounds cheap, not all the items are cheap. As in, I can get a soap dish from Jusco at RM3.90 but the ones in Daiso is priced at RM5. So, expensive or not, you decide.

Nevertheless, I went to Daiso for the first time at Queensbay,Penang with my friend Dylla Fadzil and I am quite happy that there’s a lot of things to choose from. And most of the things are really, really cute. I didn’t have the need to buy the note book as in the picture, but I couldn’t resist getting one. The floral design is just too cute.

And the purple water bottle? I wanted something nice and convenient to use as my water bottle, and I didn’t want to use the normal carbonated drink bottle so that I will always want to carry a bottle of water around. (I don’t drink water so much, I doubt if my daily water intake reaches 1.0L. That bad!) It’s cute, convenient and the most important thing of all, I do bring a bottle full of water around in my bag. :D

Definitely. more hauls to come from Daiso.


P/S: This is a backdated post. So far, I have purchased paper trays, a waste paper basket and also a mud pack which was recommended by Dylla.


Till then~
