Thursday, 8 June 2017


Some of you must have wondered, where the heck was I gone to. No replies to messages, DM, inbox, whatsapp and not really replying to anyone's comments or whatsoever in a very long period of hiatus, the longest MIA I'd ever been in. And I seldom posted anything for weeks too. I wasn't dead ofc, I am still here, alive or else I wouldn't have posted anything online AT ALL.

During my hardest moment like few months back, even my closest friends belittled me and didn't understand what I was going through and only gave me the advises that would hurt me more rather than helping me. I understand that (maybe) they just wanted help me out but in order to heal and protect my own self I've decided to cut everyone off for the time being until I'm ready to return back to my usual self.

Now, I understand when one is hurt they seclude themselves from the world, no one will understand what it felt like coz emotions and feelings are subjective and cognitive, what others feel might not be the same at all although they are going through literally the same thing, yet they still said "you're not the only one who've been there" to me, that was why I just ignored everyone without an exception and brought myself in a distance away rather than listening where it could bring me much more of heartaches, I believe I'm a matured young adult, it's just contradicted to my character to take my resentment to ppl around me, and shrugging it off is my own best medicine to stray away from the drama I don't need, reason why you rarely see me talk about petty things here and there too nowadays, not worth of my time. Life is definitely finite, someone dearly told me that, what we have today might not last tomorrow.

Having said that, I've reflected towards lot of things while bringing myself away, I've began to see the faces of true friends, the ones who only being around to take advantage of what I have, and recently during my severe heartbreak period (where it was obvious) some friends decided to be bitchy (mostly girls, oh how rotten) by rubbing salt into my wound telling me stories which were unrelated that I didn't need to hear at all at the time with a clear intention to hurt me more. Living in the millennial that didn't left me surprised anymore with such inane acts and attitudes and so I've came out to keep my circle smaller, only to those I wanna be around with. I unfollowed massive amount of ppl on instagram because I just wanna be around those who endlessly give me inspirations and those I value as friends, anyways it doesn't really matter about this "follow you follow me back" culture esp if we are already friends in reality coz you already have me in real life (plus I don't mind that much about these stuff nowadays), I unfriended the same massive numbers of some people on my facebook too. Someone who inspired me told me about 3 types of ppl you always wanna avoid and never need, the manipulators (take advantage of what you have), the if it doesn't happened to me (I don't care) and the attention whores. I did that and I'm glad.

I was having a bewildered and confused mind and heart that I decided to drop everything and take a break. I had no idea that a very insensitive person like me could crumble so bad as it was. I woke up doing my things, attended lectures, enjoyed out with friends but it felt tremendously empty inside, like I had no idea why I was doing all of this. I felt like I was standing in this world alone, although there were walking figures around me. I felt so broken inside. There were times I suddenly trickled and broken down in tears at the thought of it and sometimes would cry for few days, stopped, felt okay, and did it again. I just didn't know why too.

To relate to the brokenness I felt, it had to do with all the bad things which were all accumulated to lash me out at the same time. My breakup, friends I treasured stabbed me, and palpably things I'm doing are not what I wanna pursue anymore, I gradually lost interest in it and still endeavoring of finding reasons to continue and not stopping just there, I just keep following the flow but not with the contented feelings, my mind shambled like a screen of broken TV every time I tried to figure it out and I still can't figure it out. I took a break to reflect on a lot of things, things I'm doing, my cracked relationship with both friendships and love. Everything. Like every single thing that I've done with good intentions has always went wrong. Have you ever felt this way? I locked up myself a lot in the past few weeks. Frankly, talk not about negativity but these were honestly how I really felt.

Back to my trip to Japan recently, tbvh I bought this trip to see someone as we promised, but things just swayed on the other direction and we kinda stopped talking, after knowing each other for a relatively long time. Forgetting about someone who totally got you was so painful, it's like you're falling down from a branch, if you grip and hold on more to it it'll becoming more painful, if you let it go you'll also end up in pain, except you're given a chance to stand up and walk again instead of being stuck on there in agony forever, this concludes that humans do have a choice. I wasn't being myself during that dimmed moment, there was one time I signed up for a dating site, regardless of society's negative perceptions about it like "it's only for desperate ppl", tbh I was not that desperate but I thought nothing was wrong with it if that's one of the best ways to forget and start anew again, I thought. And if that could help me to forget painful things faster ofc I would take it up for whatever it is. Nonetheless soon I realised, finding someone new wasn't what I really really wanted, I am just not into a relationship again. I just wanted to forget everything about him and using someone else to do it is just obnoxious, I came back to my senses. The pre-existed thought of mine was that my long awaited trip would be so futile but I pushed away all the harassing thoughts and still decided of going alone. Not really worried about being alone part to be frank coz I've always been an independent girl since I was little. But it sure felt awkwardly different going to the place with a different time zone all by just yourself.

Suffice to say, now I am kinda striving to focus on the important things first. Once I'm done with my bachelor I probably will try to work abroad. I don't know, but planning is a law of attraction my father said. My brother left for U.S for so many years already, another brother is now settling down in Japan so I am probably not gonna stay here forever too and I'm convinced that it's a better decision, so I'll give a try on that part. Bringing yourself away to fit in the new environment sounds like a good fresh start. I might be bogged down by a lot of things at the moment but I will post up some entries about my visit to Japan soon, and many other things as well if my time ever permits me, really miss writing on this personal space of mine leisurely like in the old days, no kidding but I'm quite busy and fully occupied everyday even on weekends.

I wasn't joking when I said I had to leave, but space was indeed all what I needed and asked for. Thank you for giving me the space I needed for my inner recovery. Now I am slowly recuperating and getting back to my activities, not gonna say I am totally healed like how you can format stuff on your lappy (I cried for the entirely 2 weeks at first without no one to comfort me) but at least all my distresses are alleviated and I feel a lot more better after taking a loooong time to be with just myself, and I'm embracing all the unsavory past as a life lesson to be able of letting go. Still adapting myself to every changes incurred from what I've been through recently, nevertheless all is good to let you know.

I'm willing to continue again from where I left. I once said that I didn't regret anything that ever happened to me in my life, I still do. I apologize for ignoring and abandoning you guys so coldly, everyone who endlessly trying to reach out to me, who can't stop being worried about me and keep texting me like "Are you ok Pinku?" "Pinku where have you been" "Are you fine?" and etc, I didn't really replied to most comments or PMs on purpose, I read them all but I was having my own space and I didn't really felt like interacting much with everyone and worst now it's becoming a habit (it was always a habbit anw) after all, "ignored doesn't mean forgotten".

It's been really a while, time to kick off for my delayed projects. Thank you for reading this far. Regardless of how different you may see me in the future, I am still the same timid and innocent me to the very core that you ever knew. You're born as you and you'll forever be you, that's what I've always been told and I do believe in that.

Hi my fave people!

Last month I was invited to a sharing session by Bausch and Lomb at their office in Sunway Pinnacle. The Professional Service Manager of Vision Care, Bausch and Lomb Malaysia, Alice Tan shared and talked to me about the criteria that set new standards in the contact lens industry and honestly I've been wearing both glasses and lenses since I was 13 but I've never knew that a pair of contacts can be invented to be the ideal ones as I thought all contact lenses feels literally much the same.

I've been told that Ms. Alice Tan graduated as an optometrist from the National University of Malaysia (UKM) with a 7 years’ experience as an eye care professional in both optical trade and vision care multinational company. She is an experienced optometrist with vast knowledge and experience in handling and treating patients with various optical corrections including soft contact lenses, rigid gas permeable as well as specialty lenses. She also has contributed in driving the reinforcement program among the eye care practitioners through education with the collaboration of various institutions in Malaysia as well as a member of Association of Malaysia of Optometrists. Her established and strong background in optometry encouraged me to know more about the angle of eye health and also how can I pick the right contact lens which suits me that is parallel to my lifestyle's needs.


About Biotrue

Biotrue ONEday Daily lens is a premium daily disposable contact lens. Inspired by none other than the human eye itself, Biotrue ONEday lens is made from HyperGel, an innovation that combines the best of conventional hydrogels and silicone hydrogels and is set to be the next generation of daily Disposable material.

Three Bio-inspired features :
  • Matching cornea’s 78 per cent water content, provides incredible comfort during lens wear.
  • Meets the oxygen level that an open eye needs to maintain healthy, white eyes.
  • The lens outer surface is designed to mimic the lipids layer of tear film to prevent dehydration and provide maximum amount of moisture compared to all major brands of daily disposable lenses in the market today, even after 16 hours of wear.



Alice explained that the ideal contact lens is the one that provides satisfactory visual performance, acceptable comfort, adequate corneal physiology, and ease of handling. On top of that, the factors that will come into consideration for suitable contact lens selection are comfort, convenience, and caters the needs and lifestyle of the users.

Ms. Alice Tan explaining about the Hypergel and how it works.

Bausch and Lomb Biotrue ONEday daily contact lens featuring revolutionary material, Hypergel, which has ever since been considered the ideal lens by many professionals and users alike for its winning qualities. As what I've been informed, Hypergel is a high-moisture next generation material, was designed to work like the eye matching the cornea's 78% water content and mimicking the tear film's lipid layer to retain moisture inspired by the biology of the eye, material combines the lens polymer with SAM (Surface Active Macromers) that works like the lipid layer of tear film to resist dehydration and maintain water within the lens for surprisingly up to 16 hours long.

The material (Hypergel) combines the best features of conventional Hydrogels and Silicone Hydrogels which retain 98% of moisture throughout the day, ending the day with more moisture than many lenses begin with, it meets the oxygen levels an open eye needs without the use of silicone to maintain healthy and white eyes. It matches the cornea water content which provides exceptional vision and comfort throughout the day, that is the unique nature of Hypergel. Most contact lenses in the market now are made from Hydrogel & Silicone Hydrogel. Although having their own benefits, Hypergel is a win as in a material, it prevents the evaporation of water content and allows oxygen to pass which equal the feeling of not wearing anything. To maintain white healthy eyes users are recommended to choose the lens that can provide the amount of oxygen that the open eye needs too.

It is true that a higher water content provides good initial comfort but most of the case it'll generally and gradually cause dryness at the end of the day. Once the lens lose its moisture it'll absorbs the moisture from the tear, that is the reason of why you feel the dryness while having the contacts on, this is contradicted to Biotrue ONEday contact lenses which imitating the lipid layer of our tear film. I tried it for these past weeks and I can confidently say that I've never tried such good contact lens before, the feeling when you're wearing it is splendid. I love wearing contact lens because it can totally change my look and make it easier for me to carry my life routines throughout the day. The other contact lenses I've tried before can get dry so fast in less than 6 hours that it feels very uncomfortable and I tend to blink my eyes a lot. However it is really different with this one, once put on I barely even feel it there, the only difference is my vision become clearer. I went out at 8AM and came back at 12PM with the lens on and still I felt very comfortable, not feeling anything bugging in the eye by the end of the day unlike the other contact lens or daily contact lens I've tried did. Never felt this good wearing a lens again.

Above all of these benefits, Bausch and Lomb Biotrue ONEday Daily's Hypergel is the first soft contact lens material that provide UV protection. It can block 70% of UVA and 95% of UVB radiation. However it is advised to never forgo the regular UV-absorbing eyewear such as UV-absorbing goggles and sunglasses for a complete protection.

Based from what Alice said, using a daily disposable contact lens is a lot more safer too. Monthly lens tend to hoard germs while you put it on and off and it can affect your tear film causing an infection. That is the reason why you are forbidden to swim with a contact lens on, however I am very surprised with the fact that you can do that using a Biotrue ONEday daily disposable lenses! Just dispose it once you're done with your swimming activity. Have you ever heard a contact lens this cool and comfortable?

Hey,

I've tried this one peeling gel from another Korean beauty brand called Onsaemeein, got it from Althea like few weeks back but I only have time to complete this post now. I think I have enough posts on this blog that talked about Althea, the holy website that sells K-beauty products you ever need from head to toe with a bargain prices. Like few months back, they have launched their app on google playstore too to make your purchase more convenient and easier. If you're following me on Instagram I guess you've seen my shout out post for that in the while back.

Plus to some people who have no idea what to buy, you can have Althea's Beauty Boxes too where they include your products of preference with their highly variable boxes ranging from as low as RM90 that comes with around 5-6 products inside, now talk about mega bargain lol. Alright time to read about what I like about this peeling gel here. Most peeling gels does not come as affordable and it's really important to have one peeling gel at home girls, trust me it makes a lot of difference to your skin. Now keep on reading.


First of all I like how it was packaged. Look at it, doesn't it looks like a real yogurt. If you have small kids don't put this around or they might grab it thinking this is a food lol
The scent is very inviting and delectable too. As you can see it comes with a small spoon for scooping too, really handy.

Open up, and this is how it looks like inside. A jar full of yogurt peeling gel, the gel is translucent white in the form, half solid (not runny at all), does not have any beads and again I really lost to its scent lol!

The chronology of how this peeling gel works.

From right : 

  1. I scooped out a fair amount of the peeling gel onto the back of my hand. 
  2. Rub it until the gel gradually evolves to watery consistency and then there will be tiny white lumps appeared as you keep rubbing gently (those convinced to be dead skins which was peeled off during the rubbing with the aid of active ingredients from this gel)
  3. A clean rinsed off skin of the back of my hand after the peeling. I can honestly say it felt so good, like a new skin has just reborn lol (mind not a little bit flush, my skin easily turn red whenever I did peeling, that's really normal)

I am an avid user of peeling gels, I normally use my peeling gel from Cure, it's Natural Aqua Peeling Gel that comes in tall bottle with pump (you can find this in Sasa). Using a peeling gel at least twice a week is really encouraged as it can removes your dead skin and assist a lot in your skin renewal, this prevents you from having a dry, flaky and premature aging skin. 

This yogurt peeling gel contains Microcrystalline cellulose as an anti-caking and scrub agent, Goat milk extract to moisturize and condition the skin, Chamaecyparis obtusa leaf extract to improve the skin tone and protect the skin, Scutellaria Baicalensis Root extract which works as natural preservative, Papaya extract as another safe peeling agent that condition the skin at the same time and Yogurt extract to enhance the elasticity of the skin.

The difference of this peeling gel with the one from Cure brand (Japanese) is this works a lot more faster than the latter, as Cure's needs the gel to settle on the skin for a while until it evolves to water and only then you can start rubbing. For this Onsaemeein Yogurt Peeling Gel, you can just slap it on and start rubbing and the visible dead skin will comes off immediately, it's very time saving. I still like the one from Cure because they are super gentle but this Yogurt Peeling Gel is the second fave of mine too, especially if I'm lack of time to wait. 

It's gentle enough too even for the dry skin type like mine. I have like 2 bottles of Cure's Natural Aqua Peeling Gels at the moment, and this one so that's make it 3. If you ask me will I buy it again, of course I will because the price is really affordable compared to Cure's, drop your jaw now coz it's only less than RM30!! Here where you can buy it. If you're travelling this is travel-wise to bring around as the size is fairly compact. 

If you have some free time let's take your time scrolling down through Althea's website, the prices are huge deals, even if you're a student it won't bites you too much as most of the beauty products there are drop dead affordable and there's an array of them you can choose from, everything you need from head to toe is a one stop to find there!

Hey,

I hope all of you are doing just well. Around 2 weeks ago Neutrogena sent me this box containing of 3 products from them to try out. I have always been an old school in skin regime, I don't normally walk out from my regular skin care brands I'm using which means I stick to one or two products I am comfortable with for years without the second thought of moving on if I find that they're really reliable to depend on like Hada Labo, B.liv and Kose, mostly Japanese and Asian brands.

From Left : Neutrogena Deep Clean Hydrating Foaming Cleanser | Neutrogena Deep Clean Hydrating Cleansing Oil To Foam | Neutrogena Deep Clean Blackhead Eliminating Daily Scrub

As I have a dry skin (sometimes can be really dry that it sucks) Neutrogena has let me try out the hydrating line including both the foaming cleanser and makeup remover&cleanser, as well as the daily scrub for blackhead as I tend to experience a clogged pores too because I am an avid makeup user, I will at least use one or two drops of foundation on daily basis even if I'm feeling like not wearing the other makeup on.

A little bit on the brand itself, Neutrogena is among the top dermatologist recommended skincare brands, always makes a difference because Neutrogena uniquely combines proven science with the expertise and insights gained from consumers, dermatologists, and skin experts, to create effective, yet gentle products. Neutrogena is known for its wide array of skin health-focused products starting from cleansers, hydration serum and masks to sun protection lotions.

Neutrogena is an American brands, that is headquartered in Los Angeles, California. According to product advertising at their website, Neutrogena products are distributed in more than 70 countries. Neutrogena was founded in 1930 by Emanuel Stolaroff, and was originally a cosmetics company named Natone. It is now part of the United States-based Johnson & Johnson conglomerate, which bought the independent company in 1994.


The march of 2017 kicked off with this worldwide premium skincare brand announced the Academy Award-winning actress, activist for women’s cancer research and Goodwill Ambassador of UN Women, Nicole Kidman as its latest Global Brand Ambassador.

According to Cory Price, General Manager of Neutrogena at Johnson & Johnson US, “Nicole embodies the true spirit of the women that we are committed to everyday. Their passion, strength and focus are what makes Neutrogena women so special. Nicole will help us encourage women to embrace their beauty through the lens of skin health and empower women to see what’s possible with Neutrogena”.

In Malaysia, Neutrogena Deep Clean offers a wide range of cleansers and make up removers that addresses different skin concerns.

From Left : Neutrogena Deep Clean Hydrating Cleansing Oil To Foam | Neutrogena Deep Clean Hydrating Foaming Cleanser | Neutrogena Deep Clean Blackhead Eliminating Daily Scrub 

Neutrogena Deep Clean Hydrating Cleansing Oil To Foam (RM44.90, 142mL)

First and foremost, no skin care routine is approved without started by the makeup removal first. Neutrogena knows what the women's skins need. I am convinced that even if you cleanses your face thoroughly however without the makeup being removed first it is futile. I've stopped using my conventional cleansers and skin care products in order to test the eficacy of these Neutrogena products.

Neutrogena Deep Clean Hydrating Cleansing Oil To Foam takes form in a lightweight gel, not really oil like the name and once you slather it on your full face makeup, as you rub it on it turns into a whitish gel with a sticky consistency. That's how you use it, then gradually add a little bit of water as you rub it all over the face and it will take form into a relatively massive foam based on the amount you used.  From the picture above, the transparent bottle clearly gives you the idea of how the gel looks like once you pump it on your palm. It is crystal clear and very lightweight, not heavily scented and I really feel comfortable to use this to cleanse my makeup off.

The only downside is it's not that potent enough to strip off your makeup 100%-ly, I found that there were still a little bit of the residues of eye makeup left (eye makeup can be quite stubborn tho). I like the packaging very much, the transparent bottle allows me to see how much amount is left inside with the short nozzle build which is really convenient. However if you're going to bring this in your luggage for travel, I suggest that you wash the nozzle's mouth under a running water first every time after pumping out the gel and tap the the excess water off as the diluted excess gel from the nozzle's mouth (caused by the water) might drip downwards leaving an uncomfortable feelings when you touch the bottle, slippery, soapy and what not. Overall, I mark this product to be really helpful to me and I like it very much.

 Neutrogena Deep Clean Hydrating Foaming Cleanser (RM18.70, 100g )

Frankly speak, I began to feel really comfortable and compatible with this foaming cleanser, lightly scented as well as the ability to create a massive bouncy foam without stripping away the moisture that could transform my skin into an anhydrous desert. I like anything that creates an abundant foam and bubbles, it suggests me the thought that it cleanses better than the least bubbles could. Pale green in color, lighter than the color of Shrek (???), this cream foaming cleanser comes in a tube packaging. The cap is very tight, what a relief coz you can definitely bring this along in your backpack without the traces of leaking from the tube. 

 Neutrogena Deep Clean Blackhead Eliminating Daily Scrub  (RM23.70, 100g)

Comes in a yellowish iridescent color with a golden beads and tiny granules.

I don't dislike this blackhead daily scrub, just that I don't think it helps much with my problem, if you live in a country with winter I don't think this is suitable for you either if you have a dry skin, Using it like once a week is fine, it is good just that it does not cope that much with my clogged pores problem which can be horrendous at times based on the weather and my daily activities (especially on my forehead and T-zone area). This blackhead scrub doubles as a cleanser too, lather it up with water and gently rub the bubbles across your face to cleanse, with the beads mixed together it helps to brush away the blackheads and dirts which outstand on your skin surface, as well as the dead skin cells. This is still a good product for people with oily and acne prone skin. Overall, my best companions of the past weeks are the hydrating foaming cleanser and the hydrating oil to foam cleanser, they're definitely my faves and I am very contented of the result it gave to my skin.



I am an average girl who hates to take selfies most of the time (welp) but I am very satisfied with how my skin turned out after using them consistently so here you go one of my aesthetic shots under the bliss of sun to show you my new improved skin, almost naked from all them heavy foundations. If you wonder what might work the best for your skin, why wait, give 'em a go now and see what a miraculous things they can do to your skin just like mine. //winks

Hello again strawberry crepes!

I believe that we're too familiar with Neutrogena brand, there's always ads on youtube, your tv and pretty sure you've seen them too in most Malaysia's drugstores. Have been hearing about how good their oil-free acne wash too, I just never tried this brand given my skin type appear to be an antonym to the acne prone skin, rather a lil bit dry.

So few weeks ago I was sent this to try out, been using this for weeks and know what. I LOVE IT. It's so different for me to love any deep cleansers, coz I always thought it might make my skin drier than it already is, as it is told to be a deep cleanser it will cleanse away everything even the moisture away and so I never give a second thought to even try. This is a shame, I should've just tried this before!

Neutrogena Deep Clean Foaming Cleanser is a facial cleanser that works thoroughly to
remove dirt, oil and dead skin cells while providing long lasting oil control and improving the appearance of your skin.

As how most of the cleanser looks like, it comes in a tube like this with a flip open cap. it's tight when you close it so you don't have to worry to bring this in your bag whenever travelling as it won't oozing out. Just squeeze a small amount on your palm and lather it up with water to use it. Now some tips to cleanse your face, many people who often have breakouts never realized it that most of them were not even born with an acne prone nor oily skin, it has something to do with the right way to cleanse your face.

A proper way of cleansing is you need to lather it up on your palms with water first to create a rich foam as it removes skin impurities that can build up in pores such as excess oil, dirt and makeup effortlessly. The richer the foam the better.

Tiny amount of this cleanser makes an abundant rich and creamy foam and it feels good after you rinse it off, the skin feels squeaky clean but not dry. 

The dermatologist-tested formula is clinically proven with oil control formula that helps in reducing the surface oil while retaining the natural moisture your skin have to keep your skin looking clear, fresh and healthy. The cleanser comes in a white color, semi-thick, and it has a mild fragrance which is good for a person with sensitive nose like me, I can't help myself to sneeze every time I use something too fragrancy. Something I notice too, the cleanser actually have a tiny beads, this is great to help with removing dead surface skin that can dry, roughen and dull your complexion without being too abrasive. I actually find this to be a multi-cleanser for all the jobs it can do. 

For the record, I have a dry skin and even so this cleanser still works just fine, it does not rip away all the moisture, and it fact every time after I wipe off my makeup, cleansing the residue of them using this cleanser makes my skin feels free of greasiness and yet I can still smile without looking like an old granny with a taut feeling skin. Speculatively, it's still not a good idea to use this in winters unless you really have an oil refinery like skin LOL.

I am not sure about others but I seldom use toner, not to mention after the use of this cleanser, I don't think I need a toner coz it makes my skin feels matte already. In the nutshell, I really love it for the negligible fragrance, long lasting coz you only need a small quantity to create enough lather to remove external impurities to the pores (non-comedogenic), and it controls the shine. One thing I do not like about it is I probably won't bring it if I were to travel in winters. I prefer to use my favourite Hada Labo if it feels to dry for me to use it because Hada Labo is very moisturising, just that it's not really efficient against makeup removing like Neutrogena.

Ingedients : Water, Sodium C14 16 Olefin Sulfonate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Sodium C12 15 Pareth 15 Sulfonate, Salicylic Acid, Linoleamidopropyl PG Dimonium Chloride Phosphate, Disodium EDTA, Propylene Glycol, FD&C Yellow 5, FD&C Red 40, Fragrance

Would I buy this again? HELLA YES coz this is still a great cleanser to double cleanse my face on the super heavy makeup day! You can find this on both Guardian and Watsons and other drugstores or shopping malls in Malaysia like Aeon, Giant and etc. If you're looking for the brand which specilized in deep cleansing and acne this is one of the good brand out there. The price of this cleanser is only RM10.20 (NP) affordable no? xD

Hello melon buns! 

Miss me yet? heee I know I haven't been on blog for sooo long but ok staph. Today I got an interesting discovery for you guys who loves lip products. Tired of getting your lipstick stain on cups and shirts? The shade won't stay all day long and faded after having meals? Worry not, here comes the product that might make a lil bit of change to your lipstick life forever and be a lil saviour! (Lol Pinku's typical Malaysian way of attempting to go advertise) Ok leave all jokes behind, girls guys let's be serious.


On top of all, thank you sooo much to Kosé for thinking about me and sent me this Lip Gel Magic to let me try it! I instantly fell in love for its cute and chibi (means tiny in Japanese) packaging! It's simple but sleek and it makes it easy for a girl who loves makeup like me to carry it around in a handbag and makeup pouch. Speaking of woes of wearing lipsticks, many will agree if I say 95% of your lipsticks often budge as the day progresses or by a few hours of wearing and they have a propensity to leave a mark on your belongings, and I just hate the fact that sometimes my hair or hijab would flow and touch my lips and when I'm trying to pull them away from my face the lipstick stain (the non-matte ones) will be dragged across my face, ugh that's just doesn't look so cool okay.

Comes in a tube like this, it helps with the application as it only allows you to press only a small amount from it. Careful tho, this scentless liquid gel is rather runny or you'll have to mourn on the wasted product rofl!

Not to mention Kosé did sent me this to try too, Esprique in OR 292 and I swear to universe the shade is fudging pretty and the packaging is very elegant and classy!
Orange or red hues really suit me the best in the terms of lipsticks or lip colors.

Trying out the color on my lips, I added a lil bit of shimmering pigments, the shade is absolutely gorgeous!

As you may expected from most of the beauty bloggers like myself that like an honest review, no reviews will be done without a prior experiment so I tested this on the back of my hand, one with Kosé Lip Gel Magic coat and one without.

Experiment : 


From right :

  1. One swipe of Esprique lipcolor in OR 292 with a drop of Kosé Lip Gel Magic coat and one without. 
  2. One lipcolor is covered with Kosé Lip Gel Magic and one without
  3. I tried to drag the stain to see how much it would stay on both. The one with the Kosé Lip Gel Magic coat shows only a lil budge while the one without, budging like mad.

Lip Gel Magic is Kosé's most powerful lipstick coating gel, and it is told that with just one single swipe this maximum-strength lipstick top coat gel protects the lip color from fading even after drinking, eating and even - gasp! - snog...ging? LOL I'm just joking //slapped. This semi-opaque, fragrance-free translucid gel works with any of your favorite stick-typed lipsticks. As it locks the color of the lipstick it also makes it last longer. The moisturisation it provides enable your pout to look healthy and stay perfectly defined all day long.

Verdict :

It's true that it holds the color of your lipstick, however when I applied it on the lips, I would say it won't give you a 100% transfer-proof effect. It does helps with 60% from getting it smudged. It does extends the life of your lipstick shade as it is becoming less smudgy, but it's still can be transferred to your mug and shirt. I still do like it coz it feels very moisturized when I put it on, besides prolonging your lipcolor's shades.

You can find this from Kosé's beauty counters Malaysia-wide and they are only priced at around RM55 each. For more info you can kindly visit them here :
