June 2014 Magazine GWPs - CLEO & Female Malaysia

♫ 方大同 love 精选

June is another exciting month for us, because not one, but TWO of our local magazines have come up with some pretty sweet gift with purchases. Unfortunately, these GWPs are available only in the Klang Valley, so for those who are living in other states... :( You'll have to get somebody to buy them for you while they're still available.


Starting with Female Malaysia magazine for June, they've come up with clutches in 3 different designs to mark their 40th anniversary. 


I picked up the 2 designs which I liked - Plasterdoll and Sereni & Shentel. The Plasterdoll design has a very kawaii vibe to it, while the Sereni & Shentel headband pop art motif is quirky and colourful. The size of the clutch is fairly big; imagine the Female magazine cover rolled into half.

The outside of the clutch glossy shiny plastic (PVC?), while the inside is plain white. It has 3 button closures at the sides and middle. Nothing fancy, but it's quite sturdy and it can work as a clutch to put your phone and documents in a pinch. You can store it flat, or stuff the sides with plastic bag (like me) to get that puffy middle section, haha! (≧∇≦)

At RM8 per copy, I'd say it's a good buy if you love collecting things like this. (¬‿¬)


The more exciting GWP of the two is definitely CLEO Malaysia's June limited edition smokey eye box set, which retails at RM 30 and comes with a The Body Shop 4-Step Smoky Eyes (worth RM 99) palette.

This was taken at MPH 1Utama.
If you're an eyeshadow lover, you'll definitely want to grab this one. I didn't get one for myself, as I hardly use eyeshadows, but I did manage to pick up a copy for my friend. :) You can check out Fiona's blog post for more details.


You can check out this post by CLEO Malaysia for information regarding which bookstores stock this special edition copy. It's best to call ahead and book your copy, as I predict these to fly off the shelves within a few days. ;)

Happy shopping, pretty peeps! (✿◠‿◠)

The Magic of Etude House Any Cushion Arrives in Malaysia!


♪ I think you're magical, I think you're wonderful~ 너로 인해 내 맘은 colorful~ ♫

You probably know by now that Etude House Malaysia has finally launched the Magic Any Cushion in its stores nationwide, so here's a quick look at the products and their sweet little launching event last month! (๑>◡<๑)


For the Magic Any Cushion launch in Malaysia, Etude House specially invited representatives from Korea to explain and demonstrate how to use the products - Magic Any Cushion and Color Lips Fit.

Etude House Magic Any Cushion
Etude House Color Lips Fit
There are 3 lovely colours to choose from, each with a specific function to help you achieve beautiful and natural toned skin:
  • Magic Peach - for dull/yellowish skin tone to brighten yellow tones
  • Magic Pink - for pale skin tone to counteract sallow undertones
  • Magic Mint - for reddish and blemish-prone skin tone to correct redness
The Magic Any Cushion has 6 functions in 1 cute little macaron-shaped compact: skin brightening + tone correction + sunscreen + cooling moisture + whitening + wrinkle care. You can check out my early bird review of Magic Peach here!


For the demo session, the makeup artist from Etude House Korea showed us how to use and apply the Magic Any Cushion for a glowy, natural makeup look which can be carried from day to night, using Etude House's latest and best-selling products.


What I love about the Magic Any Cushion series is that it is super easy to use and carry around, be it for touch-ups or traveling. The Color Lips Fit are also extremely versatile, as they can be used as both lip colour and blusher! (✿◠‿◠)

The lovely people and model from Etude House
Are you a fan of Etude House? I sure am! (Also helps that they have such attractive brand ambassadors! ≧∇≦)

The Magic Any Cushion retails at RM 119.90, and is available at all Etude House outlets nationwide.

Fashion Culture Box (April 2014) Operation Occupation - The Socialite

♫ EXO-K - 중독 (Overdose)

Have you heard about Fashion Culture Box? It's the newest 'box' around, and all you fashionistas and accessories-lovers should take note, because it's the one and only fashion subscription box to hit town!


Fashion Culture Box is a monthly fashion subscription box in Malaysia. Every girl has her own distinct fashion personalities, which is why Fashion Culture Box comes up with THREE different styles from a specific theme each month for you to choose from. Choose one (or all three ≧∇≦) for a mystery surprise full of fashion accessories and beauty goodies to arrive at your doorstep each month!

Psst... You can even buy it as a present for your (girl)friends and/or moms! Great idea, right?


The theme for Fashion Culture Box's April installment was Occupation Operation, and the 3 styles to choose from were Working Girl, Campus Chic and Socialite. I'm no socialite IRL, but I just couldn't resist the promise of everything gold, shiny, and glittery so I chose the Socialite box, and boy am I glad I did! ;)


See the little booklet? It's called the FCZine, and inside you can find out more about the contents of the boxes from that particular month, interviews with the cover girl, fashion tips, as well as a sneak preview of next month's theme!
Fashion Culture Box - The Socialite
There was a total of 6 items in the Socialite box I received, including:
  • Bloop Germ Blaster hand sanitizer
  • Dentiste Plus White Oral Rinse
  • Dazzle with sparkle clutch (my favourite item! ♥‿♥)
  • Tiered diamante necklace
  • Solitaire earrings
  • Audrey diamante bracelet (love this one too! ♥)
A closer look at the bling bling
I just cannot get over how awesome this combination is! (。✪‿✪。)
Fits your phone, cash and cards - all you need for a night out ;)
Overall, I'm pleasantly surprised with the items I got in FCB's Socialite box for April. The quirky solitaire earrings are a great addition to my earring collection, not to mention it goes really well with the diamante bracelet and necklace. Oh, and did I mention I love the sparkly clutch as well? (¬‿¬)

Bad mirror selfie, but you kinda get the #OOTD idea lol
At only RM58 per box (shipping included!), I'd say it's more than your money's worth, as the items inside the box each month are worth far more than that. Plus, who doesn't enjoy surprises in the form of parcels? It's like Christmas came early!(≧∇≦)

P/S: You can use this code FCB-MDB-1188 for 10% off your subscription! :)

GEO HoliCat Sexy Cat Gray Lens from LoveShoppingholics.com

♫ EXO - Love, Love, Love

GEO's latest circle lens range is a cute, quirky and seductive collection of 5 different colours and designs, called the HoliCat series. Thanks to LoveShoppingholics.com, I was able to pick GEOLICA HoliCat Sexy Cat Gray to try out. Let's see how pretty and *coughsexycough* they are, shall we? (≧∇≦)


As usual, LoveShoppingholics' parcels come in the most adorable package ever. There's a sweet little thank you note and a kawaii animal lens case for you to store your lenses. Unlike the usual contact lens vials, the HoliCat lenses are packaged in blister packs within a flat box.

There's a small little hole/window at the back of the box for you to see what the lens looks like. :) There's also the GEO authenticity scratch-off sticker for you to verify that your lenses are genuine GEO Medical lenses.

Sexy Cat (gray) comes in a red box
If the character design on the box seems familiar but you can't put a finger on it, you'll probably be relieved to know that it was designed by Mari Kim 마리킴, a pop graphic artist who also designed 2NE1's album cover and Peripera's makeup packaging. (¬‿¬)

Unlike the previous GEO Grang Grang lenses, these HoliCat lenses are noted as monthly disposable lenses. However, I find that they can still be comfortably worn for another month with proper care and cleaning. (This could also be due to the fact that I don't wear lenses every day, so there's not much wear and tear.)

GEO HoliCat Sexy Grey
The HoliCat Sexy Cat gray lens are described as a 'gray sandwiched with green; a special colour with chic cat's pattern to give you a sexy and delicate look'. Personally, I think it looks pretty much gray, with a distinct black outer ring and a clear middle section to let your natural eye colour show through.

Taken under natural light
Even with a relatively small diameter of 14.5mm, the lens still gives my eyes a noticeable iris-enlargement effect (small eyes FML). I would say it's the type of circle lens that looks obvious in bright light but very natural in dim or shaded lighting conditions. They are very comfortable, as most GEO lenses are, and I can wear them for up to 8-9 hours without needing eye drops. (◕‿◕✿)


You can purchase the HoliCat series from LoveShoppingholics, as well as a huge range of other contact lenses, cosmetics and fashion accessories. What's more, they have FREE SHIPPING for orders over $50! :D
