Bifesta Makeup Remover review

 Things I put on my face: 
eye shadow, fake eyelashes, fake eyelashes glue, pencil liner, liquid eye liner, mascara, foundation, different shades of concealer, 
highlighter, bronzer, eyebrow pencil, lipstick. Hahahah, that's no wonder I take so long to prepare for an outing.


Yeah yeah, you might think being a girl is DIFFICULT! And BOYS, you might think we do our make up just because we want to LOOK GOOD JUST TO IMPRESS YOU... or you think we're INSECURE... or you think we DON'T LOVE OURSELVES... Oh boys, stop being so full of yourself because some of us girls, just simply LOVE MAKE UP, and we do it simply because of ourselves! Not you :P But with all these over-load of chemicals we slap on our face, it's really essential to take good care of the base (OUR SKIN!) Removing our make up is a MUST! Because we need to let our skin (pores to be exact) breath naturally. And we all know that at least ONCE in our life (or a week / month / year) we find ourselves guilty waking up in the morning on the wrong bed with our makeup on SINCE LAST NIGHT! My friend who works in a well-known skin care brand (who has a flawless-porcelain-kind of skin) once told me before that, "If you sleep with your make up on for ONE NIGHT is equivalent to letting your skin age for ONE YEAR..." YIKES! imagine how many years we've already let our skin aged. Hence, I cannot stress any further, that putting on make up is fun, but you always shouldn't "forget" to remove it by the end of the day.


I've been trying this product for almost 2 weeks now and it's time to talk about it. Friends, meet Bifesta (pronounced as Bee-Festa), claimed to be Japan's 1st Drugstore Water-Based Makeup Remover (3 bottles are sold every minute in Japan!) "Bi" Means Beauty in Japanese while "Festa" is an abbreviation of Festival, Beauty Festival! And they're all about WATER!

It's not a surprise that a lot of people think that water based makeup removers are less powerful than their oil-based counterparts. But for me through experience, oil based removers not only leaves an uncomfortable oily residue even after I tried washing them off my face urgh! >:( they are also not the best for oily-prone or sensitive skin. In fact, they made my face breakout even more! On top of college stress and hormones problem, the oily leftover make-up remover really wasn't doing justice to my face :( I myself stay far far away from products which are oil-based or has a lot of alcohol ingredients in them, and usually use cleansing milk or any other natural organic product to keep me away from the bad experience. If you guys had the same bad experience with me before, today I wanna introduce to you guys a make up remover that is all about that bass WATER! 


Their star product and what a lot of beauty bloggers from all over the world have been raving about is Bifesta's cleansing lotion series.
Catered to different types of skin, Bifesta is a brand which ONLY provides Makeup Removers;  4 handy variants for different skin types:

Enrich (dry skin : added Co-enzyme Q10 for rich moist), 
Sebum (oily skin : with green tea extract to reduce pore size), 
Brightup (combination skin : removes dead skin cells and dirt from pores), 
Moist (dry and sensitive skin : with double moisturising ingredients to provide high moisture effect) 

It promises to Moisturise,  Tones, and Removes, and YES! It did live up to it's promises! Not only that NO RINSING IS REQUIRED! (sayy whaaat?!) I've been trying it for 2 WEEK already and I can tell you it absolutely melt and grabs off every trance of make up from your face! I'm really happy about that btw, and amused at the same time that "some water-based" product can do this so easily... Because at the back of my mind I had a sceptic feeling beforehand that "How powerful can a water-based make up remover be??" But clearly that sceptical thought changed when I
tried this product for myself. Btw, the one I'm using is BrightUP (the purple one) for my combination skin type.

When I like to use it:
I like to put this in the shower and just grab a few piece of cotton and wipe it off! Easy-Peasy (So I dont' feel sleepy - lol, wtf, bad rhyme) So after a long day all you need is a few pumps (3 max for me) on a cotton pad to wipe off all your make up easily so you can go to bed fast! Best solution for lazy girls who have no time like me who want things done QUICK, EASY & EFFECTIVE (Oh God, I sound like an auntie already)! Best use for everyday-light-makeup look; like foundation / concealer / blush / light eye makeup. 

RM 27.80


Speaking of being QUICK, EASY & EFFECTIVE...

Make up wipes are all the rage for Travels / Sleepovers ! And here guys, is how Bifesta's makeup wipes look like with and without their wrappers. Being a Jr. Art director myself, I really look up to Japanese's minimalist and super clean packaging design, I also really appreciate it when my cosmetics (AND EVEN MAKE UP REMOVERS) are designed to not only do a great job, but also look pretty at the same time. Hahahaha.. I'm sorry
I really can't live without pretty things, x.

The hard case it comes in is not refillable, but it does give the whole packaging a more solid grab. Really one sheet is ALL YOU NEED because 
ONE SHEET > the size of my face. Even can remove heavy / stubborn eye make up! And if you're wondering, there's actually 46 sheets of really wet cotton wipes in box. So let's say you remove your makeup once a day, one box is more than enough for you to last for a whole month! :O

When I like to use it:
I usually, quite often, sometimes have spontaneous trips / sleepovers whenever I'm free or when I feel like it. So all I need to grab for my 
makeup remover is this! Easy to fit in my bag, and I know that with just this box I can remove my WHOLE FACE already! :D PERFECT for 
out-of-home situations. lol

RM 19.80


Hehehehhe, here's how I look like with and without my usual weekend eye makeup. For this product there definitely is oil in it, you need to shake the bottle to mix the oil and water first, then drip a few drops onto a cotton pad and I usually like lay it on my closed eyes for about 10 seconds then wipe it off! It does feel a lil oily when first apply, but after use the oil just dissipates after a few seconds! It definitely doesn't irritate my sensitive eyes (THANKFULLY!!! Because I had a situation once when I used another brand's eye makeup remover which belongs to my friend's when 
I was staying over her place and it made my eyes swollen and red within seconds!) Also, it doesn't give you that cloudy / blur effect in your eyes when you remove it with your contact lens on.

When I like to use it:
With just ONE SWIPE this lips + eye makeup just easily removes every stubborn mascara / fake eyelash glue! I like to use it on days where I wear heavy eye make up (think wedding / events / photoshoots). Gentle on eyes, tough on removing make up! :)

RM 22.80


Overall I thought that for this price, it's really WORTH IT because of it's quick and effective results. Packaging is a beauty as well!! (you know that feeling when you have guest over your house and when they enter your bathroom and nods with approval at the sight of this lovely design lol) They say most of the pretty girls can't cook, but this pretty product can certainly pack a punch! (Don't know if that metaphor makes sense or not lol) Anyways, it's definitely a product worth buying and I'll definitely recommend it to my friends who seek for non-oil based makeup removers :) 

Hope you guys enjoyed this review merci Bifesta Malaysia for the lovely products 

xx, love you guys

My Dating App Experience - #LunchClick Review

Dating. Dating online. Dating through an app.

Dating through an app used to be a taboo everyone had a skeptic feeling against, well at least for me in my opinion, I used to raise an eyebrow when I hear someone I know using a dating app, but funny how things changed very quickly when I decided to give some dating apps a go (when I say some I meant only Tinder). Funny how this silly conversation has managed to shift from, "Oh my God, xxx is on Tinder?!" to "But everyone's on Tinder, what's wrong with that?" Out of boredom and curiosity, my girlfriends and I tried using some dating apps, just to take a look around and see what's this big hype about, but along the way, there are tonssss of creepers (creepy guys /pervs) along the way and it almost seemed like the road of gentlemen was lost– well then again who in the right mind would search for romance on a dating app, the thought of it just doesn't fit, does it? Like what society has warned us, you'll encounter a bunch of very sexual messages, of guys who have no conception of what charm or manners is, and who go in straight for the "DTF?" (which means down to f***, for the uninformed). And also not to forget a lot of kidnapping cases that we see on the newspapers are linked to dating apps and about how the girl getting cheated... Cheated for their body,  cheated for their money, etc... Ah yikes, it's a scary world! I have some girl friends telling me experience that they have some offers for Sugar Daddies on dating apps, another worst case is that one of my girlfriend was dating this guy for almost a year, and to find out at the end she was the third wheeler all along, but the story doesn't end there, turns out the guys is married!! Yikes! And so, with that said, dating apps are still more likely to yield mixed feelings rather than an overall positive experience... Especially for us girls, if you know what I mean. Somehow like porn lol a lot of the existing dating apps out there seem to be mainly catered to guys, and us girls, don't get a really great experience.

But today, since we girls should be looking out for each other, I wanna introduce to you girls (and guys) LunchClickthe first dating app that has security features that caters to those who want a safe experience. Brought to you by LUNCH ACTUALLY, the well-known biggest dating agency in Southeast Asia HAVE YOU NOT HEARD ABOUT THEM?! I've heard of them a few times before and seen some few ads popping up on the side of my news feed quite some time, maybe because GOOGLE KNOWS EVERYTHING, including that you're very lonely being single for so long, lol. Anyways, back to LunchClick , it has Manual Profile Approval: love assistant will vet through all incoming profiles and rejects the non-legit ones. Non-legit ones meaning the people who have inappropriate pictures (this includes no dick pic allowed k guys, you think what?! we girls get turned-on by that?! Nooo...) or people who are already attached (as can be seen through their Facebook profiles) So if you're not single on Facebook, it also means 
that you're not legit enough to use the app k, so take warning for all you cheaters and scandals-er out there, LOL. 

*omg is that a match?!*

And you know how some people have that ego issue, where you say yes to everyone but you never say anything in the conversation... Well, LunchClick only allows ONE MATCH PER DAY, so that guys aren't able to swipe endlessly to check out female users around and this won't appeal to people who just want to play "the numbers game". So let's say today you liked / disliked your "match" you can only wait another 24hours to see who's your next "match". Interesting right? 

*someeeeee-dayyyy my prince will coooomeeee*

It's easy to see that obviously LunchClick is for those who are serious about searching for the right match, and it's not very for those who are searching for one night stands, or those who use fake profile. So gurlfriendddds, don't worry cause you won't be getting bombarded with tons of creep messages by creepy guys. So far, this is the most legit-ly secure app for ladies that I've seen so far! "Don't look for love, let love find you..." It is said to let love come naturally, but sometimes, naturally ain't working very well for some people, that's why we have secure dating apps like this to help us push ourselves in our dating life. For some people dating app acts like a cupid for them, and I guess it's good news too for those people with a busy schedule who hardly go out to events to meet new people, this is where dating apps come in. Well guys (and girls), if you're single, available, and ready to mingle, why not give LunchClick a try?

top : ENDLESS ROSE / pattern kimono : similar here / white shorts : similar here / boots : Dr Martens / black hat : similar here

Can't believe it's the end of April already, time just flies by so fast for me this month, although this month wasn't so much of an up, not so much of the cheerful happy person I would like to be, but quite some things made me frown, or even bawl my eyes over... One of which is the "passing" of my 5 years old Macbook Pro... who has been with me since day 1 of college, who carried all my silly, crazy, and one of the best memories I had – college. Those terrible webcam videos of me and my friends singing while we never fail to introduce our names at the start of each homemade webcam video (lol, like who were we thinking to show this to anyways?) Those were the random days my girlfriends would come over my place after class and we would just jam our beats. Not to forget making our very epic Happy Birthday song for our other close friend who just got to London at that time... Ah memories... and also learning the things I first thought impossible with that laptop, which what makes my career now, Photoshop, Illustrator, Indesign, After Effects, designing a website, making books, designing practically ANYTHING, filming videos, editing them... Man not to mention the many videos that I have not publish out there before yet. Gone... All gone just like that... I loved it so much it helped me so much in so many ways I never even dropped it once. I'm a bit of a sentimental person, and maybe writing sentences expressing my lost is a lil exaggerating, maybe even bawling over it the night it died and cutting my hair just like a break up seems a lil pathetic over just a laptop... but you see, it wasn't Just a Laptop. It was my first one. You see... Again, I must stress my life isn't all glam, I don't come from a wealthy family, so getting a 5k+ laptop at that time was a huge deal for me, and I understand a lil strain for my mom and grandpa who bought it for me as well, I didn't buy it myself of course, I just finished SPM where do you suppose I get the money from? Well... I know there might be a way to repair it but I have heard too many friends telling me their experience and conclusion was that repairing it isn't gonna help much.. it's more better to get a new one... Sigh... There goes my hard-earn money now... It's gonna cost me so much and I'm wondering how am I gonna get that money man... Am I the only one being too over reacting over the lost of her first laptop? I can't even sleep at night, and during the day I would wake up at 7am, just like how I would every time I face a break up, or a very sad event in life. Feels like a hallow in my heart... How am I gonna do my work now... Hmm... That's why I wanna say right now guys, I'm stuck and as much as I wanna update more of my blog, this problem I'm facing now is really right in the way... I hope you guys can give me some time to get my feet up again... At the mean time don't worry, you can always follow my Facebook page or Instagram, I will update there more often since I can't blog as much as I want to now. 

But like what my friend adviced, "There's always a rainbow after a huge storm..."
Just trynna keep a positive mind, I hope I find a way to get a new one soon... 
But for now, here's my OOTD post which I don't know when would be my next. lol

A picnic was the first thought I had when I matched this outfit combination. Don't you think checkered patterns usually relate to picnic tables? Haha, really in love with this top from Endless Rose, it's unique cut out with lace details on the front really is an eye catcher (and also really cooling when the wind hits in the middle part of the chest LOL) I often like to mix a twist of edge to the usual feminine clothes that I wear. I can never imagine myself being totally full-on feminine! So adding the black boots and the big black hat on this look definitely helped balance out the girly elements like the sky blue lace top with the soft flowy chiffon kimono. But if you guys ain't like me and think that this look is too heavy, try slipping on some dainty black sandals heels, you'll instantly look way more feminine that way :) I hope you guys liked this look, I'm totally looking forward for a 
picnic right now! But most of all, I'm even more looking forward to get a new laptop / desktop soon... Looking forward to talk to you guys again soon.. WHY DOES THIS SEEM LIKE A GOODBYE POST?! lol. 

Anyways, hit me up at my 

Facebook  //  Instagram  //  Youtube 

to show some love and support hun! xx I'm gonna miss you.

Shiseido Tsubaki Shampoo Review #MYTSUBAKI

You know... I've always wonder how some girls have that young, youthful-looking hair. Wondered how some of them maintain that bouncy, fresh healthy-looking hair (you know the ones you see on hair commercials)... Is it because that they always trim off their dead ends? is it because they spend hundreds and hundred of dollars (that I don't have) on multiple hair saloon treatments that cost a bomb?! (Not to mention GST is here so I really don't know how much the price would hike up to) But anyways, I've recently tried this pretty famous Japanese hair shampoo brand that made me understand that the secret to healthy looking bouncy hair is to obtain SHINY HAIR! And how much difference it makes when your hair looks frizzy to shiny hair! It instantly makes your hair look like it sucked out moisture from the ocean like a sponge. It makes your hair look strong like Rapunzels fairy tale human-strength locks that can pull up her prince charming (can I have strong hair so I can pull up my prince too? LOL) Anyways you get 
my point, shiny hair always looks the best - youthful, strong, and moisture-d.

 Shine from every angle

Tsubaki (under the famous Japanese brand Shiseido) is a Premium hair care product made in Japan, and the word "Tsubaki" means Camellia Flower. This secret flower oil has been responsible for the classic legendary beauty of Japanese hair for centuries in Japan! Geishas and maikos apply a lot of the oil, for the distinct Japanese traditional glossy hair look they prefer. Famous as a beauty secret in the far east, now women in the UK are turning to Camellia oil to find it a multi-purpose beauty solution for face serum and hair mask. I actually googled about this magical flower and found out that they actually come in 3 different color - Red Camellia which represents love, Yellow Camellia which represents longing, and White Camellia which represents waiting (exactly like the colors of Tsubaki's shampoo range!). The oil that is extracted from the flower seeds is actually very 
high in essential fatty acids which helps to improve elasticity and moisture, also packed with Vitamin A, B C E and has natural antioxidant. 

Understanding our hair - What cause loss of shine and how to repair that. 

Research has shown that Asian's black hair contains more melanin than other shades of hair color and it contributes to the level of hair shininess. However because we're expose to sun everyday (like during lunch time when you walk outside under the sun to the nearest kopitiam lol) our hair is prone to lose melanin due to UV and it will create holes that causes irregular reflection and loss of shine on hair. OHHHHHHH so that's no wonder my hair is not shinny! I blame it on those secondary days 8am standing under the hot sun for perhimpunan (assembly). 

SO IMAGINE our dull looking hair is because of those HOLES from the lost of MELANIN
BUT GOOD NEWS! ARGININE repairs melanin hole and allow light to penetrate hair shaft and to be reflected evenly, and that's how kids, you get lustrous glorious shinny hair like in hair commercials. And so guys, the product promises internal shininess (Arginine to repair from inside), and external shininess (Camellia oil which coats the hair to dramatically improve hair shininess and smoothness).

My current hair condition: Waist-length colored hair, pretty dry and frizzy at times, especially on the ends. I first started dying my hair since 6 years ago! (Never went back to the normal black after that) Tried a few colors like red, light brown, dark brown, currently my hair is a darker brown shade just to make it look more healthy and less drying and frizzy (that was always a problem for me beforehand). Now to be it seems 
like just dying my hair darker to hide and minimize the frizziness isn't enough, it needs to shine to look fresh and young! 
Well I guess the most accurate way to describe my hair right now is that it is dry, dull, and dying, LOL (sad life!)

So after understanding what are the key ingredients, here's my try on the products!
I was given the opportunity to try their famous shining range, and here's what I think about it.
Tsubaki's Shining Shampoo,
 RM 18.90 (220ml) / RM 38.90 (500ml) 

With just one pump, here is the amount you can get, which is pretty alot! Abundant for my long hair, 
and the texture is really smooth and soft, pretty liquid-y as well. and OH the FRAGRANCE... mmm. smells like 
wild flowers, and honey mixed together. It has this luxury, soft kindda scent, The kind of scent where you want to 
lay your head down into and enjoy it's comfort... 

Tsubaki's Shining Conditioner
 RM 18.90 (220ml) / RM 38.90 (500ml) 

The conditioner smells the same as the shampoo. Where as texture is different. This one is definitely more solid
and bouncy as a conditioner. Definitely something where a conditioner should have. I spread this on my ends.

Tsubaki's Shining hair Mask
 RM 44.90 (180g) 

I can only agree that this is really rich in texture. Normally the mask from other famous brands I use also isn't as thick as this one,
 this texture was wayy thicker than normal mask - which my logics says - it will force your hair to absorb the product better without 
using overly too much! The texture is kindda like a soft glossy wax. Reminds me a lil bit like jelly + cream + wax mixed together, 
LOL I hope you know what I mean... But anyways this is definitely my current fav hair mask now! One thing I like a lot about
this mask is it's thickness. Make it so much more worth to buy!! Best use 3 times a week! :)

~ so after first wash and towel dry ~

After the First wash

Instantly I could see results that it not only looks smoother, it also looks shinier as well! My hair is naturally wavy, so a lot of times it might make my hair look like I just slept and woke up without combing my hair. LOL But Tsubaki's shining shampoo did lift up to it's name- really did made my hair look shinier and healthier looking! Hair is light and bouncy as well. and really really loving the fragrance of this shampoo. So lovely and warm! If you wish to take a sniff of how this products smell like, you can find it at any pharmacy / supermarket near you. If you'd like to have an idea of how my hair would smell like recently, it will definitely be this scent. haha

you can check out any of their new updates on
  Tsubaki's FACEBOOK

see you guys soon! Stay Hair-thy ! ;)
