Hey girls!

I am doing a little collabo with a Malaysian based, Korean clothing called CON10ER (relative to "container", I think, you know Koreans and their kitschy play of numbers and punctuation in words - 2NE1, B2ST, 4Minute, T-ARA....) 



I'm using 4 pieces of clothing in this lookbook featuring -

(Free size)

(There are 2 colours, I'm in white!)


3. Ausie Lace Skirt
RM89.00
(There are 2 colours, I chose white)

For each piece, I included two options to pair your clothing with. You can either wear it very girly, or either go androgynous boyish!

 So enjoy the pics!

REALASH comes to Malaysia!

Tuesday, 21 October 2014
Have you used any eyelash serums in the past? 

I admit there was a time when I was obsessed with my non-thick eyelashes and there was even a "bald spot" on the bottom part of my lashes. I wanted to fix the problem so badly thus one fine day, I walked into SaSa and asked the SA for some advice. She recommended me a product that was worth almost RM200. Another option was about RM40+ but she stressed that the RM200 worked for her as she used it herself. Well I couldn't afford it as I was just a student back then, but looking back I actually know why I didn't purchase it. The brand was unknown and the packaging was a little dodgy to me. 

If I was going to part a huge chunk of my money, I wanna do it because I know and heard of the product. I want to be rest-assured that my money is going for a good cause.

Recently I came across this product called
REALASH.




Realash Cosmetics is a France-based producer and distributor of REALASH, an eyelash enhancer product that comes in a 3ml tube. After huge success in Europe, they are now entering the Asian market, and thank God for us, Malaysian beauty junkies can have natural longer lashes!

REALASH have collaborated with bloggers in Europe, the UK and the USA and received good reception! You can read a few here --


I received this product about two weeks ago after my Sarawak trip. REALASH comes in a simple box packaging with instructions and descriptions along.






FIRST LOOK

It has a plastic seal all over the product, a mascara-like tube. There is little dots along the edges for easier removal. It's a simple twist-and-open tube.

The liquid is clear and there is no accompanying scent that comes with it. The brush is orange in colour and its bristles are thin and soft. It has a 12-month lifespan after first opening, and the box is printed Best Before Aug 2018. That's 4 years!




REALASH is the only effective free sale eyelash extension liquid approved by FDA. It makes your lashes longer, thicker and darker.


APPLICATION

Apply REALASH nightly directly to the skin of the eyelid, after removing eye makeup, similarly to a liquid eyeliner. Wipe all excess from the eyelid. Additional applications will not increase the growth. Remember that only a small quantity of REALASH is needed to get beautiful lashes. If you miss a dose, apply REALASH the next evening. Use REALASH once daily for 8 to 12 weeks to see significant improvement. After this period, reduce use to 1 or 2 times a week in order to maintain the results.

DO NOT apply the lower lashes. Use the sterile applicators supplied with REALASH to apply the product. Always use REALASH in a sanitary manner in order to avoid contamination by bacteria known to cause infections: do not share it or allow the tip of the bottle to contact surrounding structures, fingers, or any other unintended structure.

If you wear contact lenses, we recommend that you remove them prior to the application. They may be reinserted after 15 minutes.


INGREDIENTS

REALASH is made of:
Aloe, D-Panthenol, Collagen, Collagen+Elastin, Hydrolysed Silk Protein, Hyaluronic Acid, Mango Extract, Bitter Orange Flowers Extract, Sabal Palm Extract, Dechloro Dihydroxy Difluoro Ethylcloprostenolamide Pomegranate Extract, Papaya Extract, Marigold Extract, Horsetail, Flax & Calamus Extract, Biotinoyl Tripeptide-1.





A proven miracle of science.
REALASH was born from in-depth scientific research in independent laboratories, which all testified its effectiveness. The active substances included in the formula prolong lashes' growth and inhibit them from falling. In double blind placebo controlled study conducted on a group of women aged from 18 to 75 years old, the results were astonishing:
  • more than 98% of women noticed considerable improvement in lashes' condition after 30 days of therapy
  • more than 92% of women noticed longer, thicker and stronger lashes after 8 weeks
  • more than 94% of women appreciated REALASH for its ease of use.


I'm so excited to give it a try because judging from the previous reviews, this product does indeed look effective!

Here's a look of my lashes, BEFORE TREATMENT - in my natural state and also in mascara glam state!


FRONT VIEW



SIDE VIEW



Typically, eyelashes need 30 days to grow. The main problem is that most times mature eyelashes fall before new ones are fully grown and this cause a visually unpleasant effect. Engineered with innovative technology, REALASH helps your eyelash grow faster and stronger. The density goes up, and your eyelashes look longer and fuller. It's a simple concept, but the visual effect is revolutionary.

To achieve the best results it's recommended to use REALASH once a day, preferably in the evening after removing make-up, by applying the enhancer to the upper eyelid. One packet of this 3ml nutrient is sufficient for a 4-5 month therapy. REALASH is easy to apply and you can easily do it yourself. One stroke and your eyelash are nurtured so you can enjoy your new, extraordinary look!

You can read about the product on www.realash.my. REALASH is sold in few packages ranging between RM199 (1 unit) - RM479 (3 units). I shall give my review after a month of product usage!

This is Your Miss Mean Machines 2014 - CROWD FAVOURITE!

Friday, 10 October 2014
YES you read that right!

I am your new Miss Mean Machines 2014 - Crowd Favourite! I managed to get into TOP 6 (which is a long way because Mean Machines usually need a hot banging body to grab the title!) and I'm so thankful for that! It's been so long since I am comfortable showing off my body because my weight have been on the heavy side for so many years!

I feel that I am so happy that my body has improved so much over the course of ONE YEAR, especially with intense workout session and better eating habits! (You can see some photos from last year, there is a MAJOR DIFFERENCE in face and body due to weight loss!) I think I lost about 10kgs in total??! HAHAHA, never in my life I thought I could go back to my high school weight, I always had difficulty in losing weight in the past!

Now now, before you draw conclusions that all car girls are slutty and degrading, let me clarify here a few things --

1. Car showgirls are promoters for the cars/car products. We are not asked to pose slutty or obscene in any way. In fact, we were told NOT to pose like a pornst*r. Sexy and slutty, there is FINE LINE in between.

2. Car showgirls do NOT sleep around with photographers/clients.

3. We are friends with event photographers, because they are hobbyists and we like to get our pics from them. Having a DSLR does NOT make you a photographer. A photographer does NOT gives you a free pass to be hamsap to girls either.


This is my first time wearing a car showgirl outfit (this is by far the most sexy mini pageant-like contest I have ever participated) and honestly it's intimating because I have to keep watching what I eat!! I am one who bloats up easily (no thanks to not being fully lean just yet) thus I have to keep thinking about calories and fat content (fml). During the first day, my abs lines could be seen but towards the second day, it has all blurred out thanks to the Fried Maggi I ate for dinner/supper (no choice, we finished event quite late and there was no healthy food options left).

Now that you have read the above disclaimers, here are some of my favourite shots over the weekend of Oct 4 & 5, at Auto City, Juru, Penang! (I would like to add that, none of these pics were edited in terms of face or body shape, some pics were only edited in terms of colour, brightness and contrast.)

#48 Thank you Mean Machines! I had a great time despite the rainy weather! (Actually I thank God for the rainy weather because I don't have to stand under the hot blazing sun AHAHAAHHA!)


I met so many new photographer and model friends and even met few silent readers and supporters along the way! During the course of this competition, there is a sudden increase in Facebook friend requests and Instagram followers (hurray!) and I even got a really thoughtful encouragement which goes likes this --

Loo Soon Huat Grace : I would say that, among the contestant, you are the most natural, lively and active posing contestant. You don't show "fake" smiling gesture and posing. All look so natural. And that smile is sweet and 'killing', lol !! ( sorry am saying that) . But this my comment and some view point. I think you deserved better. 
October 7 at 9:19pm


Thank you guys for making my trip to Penang a memorable one! Hopefully we will meet again soon (during CNY, that is)!!
