Hello lil fairies!

My fave shopping site called Althea is finally 1 y/o! It feels just about yesterday they were here! An array of Korean brands on the website is expanding larger too compared to the first day they raised their curtains up! Ok I smell an overly burned pocket suddenly lol

Althea is originated from South Korea and firstly launched in Malaysia on the last year, followed by the others southeast asia countries like Singapore, Philippines and Indonesia.

Last month, Althea threw an awesome birthday party celebrating their 1st anniversary ever! I'm so glad that I was invited along to their happening birthday party held at RUANG, Subang. Let's look what they got on their very first birthday event!

Saengil Chukahamnida Althea!

The beauties that welcomed us at the registration counter.

Althea birthday cake in the middle of pinkish ambience! 

If you've always thought that beauty products looks delectable, now is the right time where you can eat them LOL (They were made out of icing sugars)

Althea turns 1 and counting! 

Die high sugar level me!
The cookies were soo cute, a bit sayang to dig in lol

The bingsu bar, the taste was not bad and it cooled down the body especially in this humid weather.

4 variants of Kimbap and they satisfied the lil tummy! 

The environment of the birthday event of Althea outside the activity hall. 

This was my first time trying out a soda drink with cotton candy, it tasted so good and sweet, the fizzing sound they made when I threw the cotton candy in was somehow addictive haha

Arisa senpaiii OMG finally met her in real life! I love to read her blog for the trendy Japanese-related stuff and I always follow her cosplay updates be it on her new costume or etc. She is one of my inspirations besides Tammy and the rest.

Am sure she is much more older than me but she looks young as always! Would love to learn about her secret lol
Was nice meeting you again Carol!

Is there any lipsticks this big exist in this world? I might interested to purchase LOL

Dee OMG it has been so long! Glad to know you are doing all well, and he always rocks the diva look! 

I spent the whole day talking to this lovely girl, Nicole. Looking forward to see you again on the future events!

It's time to cut the cake, by Frank Kang, our cutest Althea CEO in the house! Oh and he sang us a song, I didn't know he can actually sing! I posted a video on my IG so if you'd like to see what's going on the event in a brief just check out my IG okayy

Caught this moment when the humble Frank kindly handed Althea balloon to one of the fellow bloggers for the balloon popping session for the lucky draw! He said there's something in the balloon prepared for us! 

Ready to see what's inside? Ok POP!

Lordd, I got a free It's My Cushion Set cushion case! and It's in the pink color (forgot to take a photo of it and I left it in Trg already, my bad) Thanks for the lil surprise Frank! Thanks for all the lucky draw sponsors too, It's My, WondeRuci and Aromatica for all the surprises!

I don't mind to die and getting buried in this box full of cosmetics haha!

Kamsahamnida for everything Frank! What a very down to earth and friendly CEO he is! Glad to have met with you again!  

My big biig biiiiigest inspiration on this journey, thank you so much for always being so inspiring and helpful to the noob me Tammy!

Kak Naniii, looked amazing and bubbly as always!

I got a print of the wefie in the Althea box full of cosmetics from Glitz & Glam Studio Booth! Will keep this as one of the sweet memories in 2016 of my life. Let us all get buried in this box lol 

If nobody noticed me I think I've already ran away with the cake LOL
The cake was so pretty, I swear!

The party was soooo adorable, everything and everyone were wrapped in pink color!
I met the other blogger friends, Kak Ella, Juneci, Reiko, Mira, Anis, Sydney, Lee yan, and etc as well alas I truly forgot to have a selfies with them lol anyway it was nice to see them around after such a long time!

Everyone invited were given a special 150 pts to shop on Althea website too, that was the biggest sursprise of the whole event!! I got mine as well, why oh why Althea just can't stop from engraving smiles on beauty lover's faces!

Thanks for the special invite Althea, It was fun spending half of my day with Althea and the bloggers. For you guys who loves indulging yourselves in Korean cosmetics and beauty products, don't miss out shopping on Althea Malaysia.

Hey watermelons!
(lol it's kinda hot these days my head keep thinking about sucking watermelon to cool down the body XD )

Finally, I get to try this awesome CC cream from Kosé Sekkisei that I always wanted to! If you missed anything about this brand here, a brief info on previous post regarding this fave beauty brand of mine!

Big shout out to Kosé for sending these babies to me, I'm so over the moon! Besides loving how oriental and classy the packagings are, I always love the scents they are formulated with. It's very Johnson baby powder-like to me! lol

Before I miss this out, the Kosé Sekkisei Emulsion that I received along wears a LE packaging with my fave sakura flowers on! Hearts everywhere!

I used to be a hardcore fan of BB creams (am still do) before the cushion trend hit all over beauty markets, making me stick to cushion-typed makeup most of the time because they're very convenient. Yet CC creams (I mean the "not so cushion" ones lel) never lost their places to my preference, I love them as well. They're very lightweight and gives me the most natural look when I'm not feeling like going out looking like a fab bitch (LOL)

While BB means "Blemish Balm" (I'm sure almost all girls know this) CC means "Color Correct". The name itself is self-explanatory, it corrects the skin tone by evening them out and it helps with the redness. CC cream is not for a full coveraged makeup, just enough for a very quick light and natural look. I prefer to use foundation better if I'm going for that "bitch I'm fab" look (LOL again)

Kosé Sekkisei brand was invented to bring women's dream of having a snow white's fair skin into reality so you can relate it to their White CC cream, it's here to help you achieving that glowing fair and healthy looking skin, in the most natural way without looking heavy.

Comes in a fairly moderate sized tube with a pump so rest assured hygiene freaks haha, it make it easy to control the amount of usage. Another thing that I love about this CC cream is it has SPF50+/PA++++, pls find yourself in an amazement now lol
It contains UV filter(s) like Titanium Dioxide, Octinoxate, Tinosorb M, Uvinul A Plus & Tinosorbs. How protective do you think a CC cream can be against the damaging UV rays?! //rubs eyes.

I don't really have that many flaws I wanna hide on my skin, just combating with some redness that I hate to see on so this CC cream is perfect for it. My skin is rather thin that almost all veins under my epidermis layer are slightly visible to sight, and it's not something freaky to see my face getting flushed most of the time.

All I need on the day I'm not wearing any makeup is something light with a "no-makeup finish" with an ability to cover up discoloration my skin have a.k.a flush & redness on the go.

Talking about skin pampering while giving that soft-focus effect that blurs out imperfections, this brightening Japanese CC cream has all 5 goodness (oriental herbs) combined together namely Job's Tears Seed Ferment Filtrate, Angelica Acutiloba Root Extract, Melothria Heterophylla Root Extract, Rose (Rosa Multiflora) Extract & Rehmannia Root Extract. According to my concern with my dry skin, I don't fancy matte finish much and not only this brightens up the complexion, it also helps with the moisture. My skin looks dewy whenever I wear this on.

Comes with 2 shades, 01 & 02, mine is the latter (Ochre) and the shade is the standard shade for Japanese/Asian women.

I used a very thin layer of Kosé Sekkisei White CC Cream here equal to one pump only and look at the result! Noticed the difference rite? My bare skin is slightly reddish. 

For even more perfect and bright complexion, use Kosé Sekkisei in the following order Lotion (refreshing toner) > Emulsion > White CC Cream. You can find out more about their star product, Kosé Sekkisei Lotion and Kosé Sekkisei Emulsion on my previous post about them.

Products mentioned in this post:

  • Kosé Sekkisei White CC Cream 26mL/30g - RM120 (±)
  • Kosé Sekkisei Emulsion 70mL - RM70 (±)

Thank you so much again Kosé Malaysia for the gifts! //flying kisses. For more info, kindly visit KOSÉ MALAYSIA or seek them straight at their counters (available in Parkson, Metrojaya and almost all over Malaysia)

Hi fellow friends! omg!

*blowing away all dust* 

How long has it been? Since I first started my studies again for my degree, I left this blog for almost 4 months! *cries* I'm so sorry, I wanna write a lot of things but my time and schedules did't allow me anymore...*sobss hard* what a pity, I kinda regret taking art and design now but oh well.

Anyway to appreciate this special come-back-from-the-dead, I decided to do one blog post for Raya 2016 makeup. First thought was to make a video but wow, that's kinda too professional for the rookie me coz I never made one before. I shall learn how to do that later, slowly haha.

If you haven't checked Althea Glam Eid Collection 2016 on their website yet (, go now!
A lot of good gems to choose from and goshhh, I'm swooning over the Witch's Pouch brand!

Makeup that I bought are:

W.Lab Blossom White Cushion in 21 Blossom Light
Witch's Pouch Love Me Blusher in 04 Indi Violet
Witch's Pouch Selfie Fix Pigment in 01 Like That
Witch's Pouch Selfie Like Shot Dual Lipstick in 03 Soft Coral & Red
Blingsome Dual Eyebrow Tint in Dark Brown
Etude House Bling Bling Eyestick in 01

Alright shall we start now?
And be prepared with a full and fast internet data, this post gonna load a lot of photos lol,
later you don't fly kick me for not telling haha!

First of all, excuse my ugly naked face (lol). Tell me about it, I'm always impressed with how cushion works, easy to use and one or two light layers can already achieve what you want namely flawless skin. Forget about concealers, sometimes cushion can do better!

Got mine in shade 21, which is not too ghostly white irl and not too dark for my skin. It's a wee bit matte but still good for my dry skin, anyway, LOVE IT!

Move on to the eyes.

1. Stick a selefon tape at the outer corner of your eyes so when you draw an eyeliner later it'll make a triangle to create a half fishtail.

For the fishtail-like line, I used this, brown pencil liner from Dolly Wink.

2. That's how you make it looks like a fishtail. Just fill in the blank of the triangle shape I drew on photo no. 1 after you put on a selefon tape.

3. Forget not your eye puffs. It'll not considered as a cute eye makeup without puffy eyes okay haha, this one I used the Bling Bling Eyestick in 01 from Etude House.

4. This is the important part that plays a big role for this eye makeup. Look at photo below, I used this.

The Witch's Pouch Selfie Fix Pigment. This is not an eyeshadow but rather a sparkle flakes. You can use this on your eyelids or as a highlighter or luminizer, it works wonder and yes the flakes is really pigmented! Just as you can see, I skipped eyeshadow for this look and just use this instead and damn head over heels love it!

Tap your eyeshadow brush over the flakes and using the brush smudge it all over your eyelids, make the fishtail line you made earlier as a borderline.

5. Don't forget your eyebrow, cute makeup needs a straight and slightly thick eyebrow for the innocent look! 

This is what I used, first make a few stroke using the brow tattoo pen (the one in a brush) following the shape of your eyebrow but make it a bit straight which means filling in the blank of your brow arch is needed before moving on and use the brow mascara next. You don't need a lot of layers, just make it smooth and brush off a lil bit using a different clean eyebrow brush to smoothen the look.

And tada~
Now you're safe to go on the next step!

*Swipe off the excess of the sparkle flakes that fall over the cheeks or your face using a big fluffy brush before applying blush*

 Remember, cute makeup doesn't need too much blusher, and that's the reason I chose this shade from Witch's Pouch Love Me Blusher, in 04 Indi Violet. The point of the blush effect is on the apples of your cheeks.

Don't skip the light contouring for your nose girls, the use of Etude Bling Bling Eyestick is two in one! you can also use it as a highlighter to create a taller nose bridge!

Featuring this baby below for the contouring on both sides of your nose

I lined both sides of my nose using KATE Tokyo Dual Liner and blend it to the side, and afterwards apply one stroke of the Bling Bling Eyestick on the nose bridge. Don't forget to apply it above your lips too to give a little bit more definition to your face and lips.

Next step is to put on the eyeliner and mascara (I skipped the falsies to make it simple). The eyeliner and mascara are both from Dolly Wink. Now can you see the fishtail effect at the corner of the eyes? Isn't it simple to achieve this look?

 Last but not least, the lips! Oh gosh!! I love this Selfie Like Shot Dual Lipstick from Witch's Pouch! It's creamy and moisturizing and the effect it gives is awesome! If you love the gradient lips you often seen on K-pop girls, you gotta love this I kid you not! It's too pretty and sooo easy to apply!

 Now I present you my simple but cute sparkle fishtail eye makeup look for Raya 2016, it's indeed very simple and easy to achieve but the look is splendid irl! Feel free to follow this simple tutorial from me if you love the look!

And don't forget to visit Althea Malaysia ( for their special Eid 2016 Glam Collection!

I guess I'm saying goodbye, got a tonnes of assignment to face for now!
It's not everyday I give some gedik wink, so abaikan if you feel like puking the feast from your buka puasa anw (Hahahahaha!)

Talk to you guys again on my next post!
Happy Ramadhan and Happy Eid in advance!
