I had a pretty packed week over Christmas week (went to Saigon, Vietnam with the family), then back to work, then had a little staycation in Renaissance Hotel, Kuala Lumpur celebrating new year/hubby’s 30th birthday/hubby’s work promotion, then back to work again. I actually filmed my getting ready with me video for my New Year Eve celebration. Have not had a chance to share with you guys earlier.
This is a Soft Glam makeup look using few products that I got from my Butterfly Project Beauty Box. This features a soft, shimmery eyes with flirty lashes, bronzy cheeks and soft, shiny lips.

Dolly Wink Liquid Eyeliner in Black
Dolly Wink is known for their eyeliner and I love their liquid eyeliner to death. The brush tip makes drawing a line precise and easy. The pigment is so black that you only need one coat for a beautifully lined eyes. It is so easy to make a thin line or a thick line depending on how you angle the brush tip.
As you can easy in my video, it is easy to draw in a shape with a cat wing too. The eyeliner lasted whole night for me without no smudging. It is waterproof as well. This is my second eyeliner pen from Dolly wink and will definitely continue to buy this in the future.
Retails for RM55.90, you can find this at any Sasa outlets.
Maybelline Baby Lips Electro Pop in Pink Shock
This is a new Baby Lips from Maybelline. Although this is a tinted lip balm, the pigment is so bright and beautiful. Pink shock is surprisingly highly pigmented and the watermelon scent makes application so yummy. The formula is as similar as its Maybelline baby lips predecessors. It is hydrating, smooth to apply and makes your lips as soft as baby’s butt.
With its new highly pigmented lip colour and seeing how my lips stayed moisturised through out the night, this might be my new found love.
Retails for RM14.90, you can buy this at any pharmacies (Watsons, Guardian, Caring) and AEON.
Collection Cosmetics Hotlights Lip Gloss in 1 Star
In the Soft Glam Makeup look I wore in the video, I also topped up the sweet lip colour with Collection Cosmetics Hotlights Lip Gloss as I wanted a high shine and sparkly lips too. This added the much needed glamour to the whole makeup look. As I was going out to dinner, I also brought the Hotlights lip gloss with me for touch up.
The design of the lip gloss is especially unique as it has built in LED lights in the wand so you can easily touch up in a dark place without any smudges. There is a decent sized mirror too at the tube of the lip gloss so you can see well. It takes a while getting use to the LED lights shining through your face when applying the lip gloss. But I love how easily I can touch up.
As most lip gloss formula, it is not long wearing especially after eating, but with the new LED lights and mirror, I can do a quick swipe and my lips are shiny bright just like the first application.
1 Star is a soft pink shade with pearly iridescent and sparkly gold glitter. Each Hotlights retails for RM 24.90 and available at selected Watsons pharmacies that carries Collection Cosmetics line.
Always 21 Soothing Aloe Vera Gel Mist by Nature Republic
I love setting my makeup with a facial mist as it ensure a longer lasting wear and also it brings back hydration to the skin. Always 21 Soothing Aloe Vera Gel Mist gives a cooling effect to the skin while rehydrates the skin instantly. I love the fresh soothing fragrance of aloe vera and I found that this mist does not melt my makeup off.
The nozzle of the spray brings out a fine mist on application, it felt like my face was softly blown by a breeze. Refreshing and hydrating, perfect for a quick lil-perk-my-skin-up.
Retails for RM39.00, it is available at Always 21 outlets at selected mall and AEON outlets. For full list where to get Always 21 products, click HERE.
Maybelline Color Show Nail Polish in 010 Pink Voltage
Sometimes you want to be all girly and dress up your nails for the special night out. For my New Year Eve celebration, I painted my nails with the Maybelline Color Show nail polish in 010 Pink Voltage — a shimmery pink with silvery gold iridescent. The brush tip is a standard size but the formula glides well on to the nail. I needed at least 2 coats for an opaque beautiful colour on my nails. In the video, I demonstrated how pretty Pink Voltage looked on my nails.
This nail polish from Maybelline Color Show only retails for RM9.90, which is a steal! It is available at nearest Watsons or other drugstore.
