Beauty Hauls under RM60

Hey it's been a long time again!
I've finally decided to write about something other than food and places to go !
Recently I have a thing about online shopping so as I was going through the web to look for new cosmetic brands , I stumbled upon ! When I first saw it on google's web search, I had second doubts about it cause I was worried that it was a scam but then I figured out that a scam company would not pay google to advertise their webpage so I clicked on the website and I'm glad I clicked on it!
I found out they were selling brands like 3CE , Sleek and a whole load of other stuff! When I saw the Sleek eye palette with 12 colors for RM53 I was shock! I immediately fell in love with all the colors so I went and did a little research and people just said "oh this eye shadow palette is good, a defo must buy" but none of them mentioned about the fall outs, if it's powdery or pigmented. I'm quite "Kiam Siap"(meaning stingy) when it comes to buying stuff especially when it's buying stuff online but that day I felt like I have to buy it because it is cheap and even if it's not as good as I expected it would be I can still use it for performances of what not. The best thing is they had this 20% promo code thing going on , free shipping so the bill came up to RM42 with a free gift! I have to give a thumbs up ! My package took 2 days to arrive and it was wrapped and handled with care also they left me 3 emails saying that the package has left Singapore (this just shows that they have really good customer service).

Ok I'm done with all the raving about ! Now let's get on with my make up hauls! I purchased the i-Divine Oh So Special Palette and man am I amazed with the quality of this product! For RM42 this is probably the winner!
The Oh So Special Palette :) Simple packaging with an applicator but if you have your own brush it would be better because I personally do not like this type of applicators it's difficult to clean it and you'll get stains on other lighter colors too!

I have an Urban Decay Vice palette which I like a lot too but for the price I'm paying I have to go for Sleek makeup palette! So if you're on a tight budget but still want to get new eye shadows I suggest you go for Sleekmake up :)

Here are the reasons and proofs why you should buy it
1. It has no fall outs at all , I kid you not! Not even the shiny colors if it was my Vice palette I would have had glitter all over my palette after I use it!
2. It give a very silky and velvety touch unlike some cheap eye shadow palettes that give you powdery finish and you can see the grains on your eye lids
3. It is very pigmented! (especially the glitter colors , black , dark brown , maroon , and dark pink)
From the top to the bottom: Celebrate , Glitz , Gift Basket

From the top to the bottom: Pamper , Ribbon , Boxed , Wrapped Up , Noir

However , the lighter colors such as The Mail , Pamper and Bow are less obvious and pigmented compared to the darker colors. Amazing ain't it? Next I would like to share with you my favorite beauty products!

Majolica Majorca Jeweling Eyes palette ! I've been using this since I was 16 years old the same palette is still here today after 4 years! If you're into bling bling this is the perfect starter palette although it's rather pricey compared to Sleek's 12 shadows palette this is about RM59.90 . But it lasted me for 4 years and it's still going strong ! It is pigmented , long lasting , doesn't smudge ,smooth finish but it has a bit of fall outs.
Sorry the reason why I hate these sponge applicators it looks so dirty but I promise it's not dirty! this is the shimmery nude eye shadow palette
Simple and nice packaging sorry it has been 4 years so you can see that the gold printings on the container is fading away:)But it's my first "expensive" eye shadow palette which I never regretted buying!
 Third, I would have to say even though Dior's mascara is one of my favorite , Maybelline's The Rocket Volum mascara is still number 1 on my Mascara list! :) This baby only cost RM29.90 if I'm not mistaken and when I went to Boots in Bangkok it only cost me RM19.90 ! The reason why I love this is because it really coats and lengthen my lashes also you can wash it off gently with warm water! Hence why I use this on a daily basis to make me look more refresh and awake!
Drugstore mascara for the win! yay! Because beauty should be affordable for everyone 
Finally , how can we miss out the mighty Eye Brow Products?! I personally do not like waxy eye brow products , I prefer pencil and powder because it's easier to control and also gives a softer finish depending on the darkness and the applicator you're using.

My favorite eye brow product is Dolly Wink's eye brow pencil by Tsubasa Masuwaka in color 2 Chocolate Brown !This product is value for money! You can get it from Sasa the price range is about RM20++? I was really  lucky that day because when I wanted to restock my eye brow pencil they had an offer buy 1 free 1 ! So I paid about RM20++ for 2 eye brow pencil WOOTS WOOTS! *yayers*

Reasons why you should get this?
1. They have about 4 colors or 3 if I'm not mistaken and it's not too dark which is good because it will look like your natural brows (Just a tip : Girls please pick one shade lighter than your original hair color/hair color because you do not want to look like Crayon Shin-Chan)
2. Color glides on easily (Just a tip: If you are out shopping for eye brow pencils , just to let you know these eye brow pencils do not glide on easily on your hands because the skin on your hand and on your brows are different and usually the testers are all filled with oil so the color won't come out unless you try it on your brows which I personally find very unhygienic !)
3. It lasts very long( *that's what she said* I used mine for about 2 years? until it became really really tiny and I had no choice but to buy a new one because I can't control the pencil anymore)

Simple and cute packaging

Brush and the pencil ! No it does not come with the sharpener !

It's really pigmented and easy to apply :) Usually one of these babies can last about 1-2 years depending on how you use it! Just a slight stroke on the brows will do please do not I repeat do not try to draw it on your brows with force because it is very pigmented and easy to glide on!

For eye brow powders , it doesn't really matter because you can just use a matte brown eye shadow and using an angle brush you can easily use it for your brows:)

On a daily basis(when I have time) I would apply Maybelline rocket mascara and for eye brows I would use Dolly Wink eye brow pencil! (Ok maybe I cheated a bit in this picture I made use of my trusty Majolica Majorca eye shadow in the medium brown on my lids and also Kiss Me eye liner near my lashes)
Viola this is the finishing look using 3 of the products I've listed above!
The best part about going out is you get to dress up and look pretty for yourself! :)

Women apply make up not to please men, make up doesn't change the way you look, it enhances our beauty and it makes us happy:)

On my next post I would like to share with you another superb website !

Ice Cream

It's been really hot lately and the perfect way  to cool down that heat is to have a scoop or two of some delicious ice cream!

1. Inside Scoop
I'm sure most of you have heard about Inside Scoop before since everyone has been talking about it have decided to give it a try and write a review about it :)

# Pistachio ice cream on a Chocolate Cone- RM11.80 (If I'm not mistaken)
To me making pistachio ice cream is probably like trying to make a scramble egg it may look easy but without the right balance and technique you won't succeed.
I'm not sure about you people but I prefer my ice cream less sweet , fragrant and if it's called Pistachio ice cream I would really hope to see tiny bits of Pistachio in it !
I'm sorry but I think when it comes to Pistachio Ice cream " CIELO " made the best ! Inside scoop's Pistachio ice cream is too sweet , no doubt it's very fragrant but the sweetness just killed the ice cream however in terms of smoothness I would say they did a pretty good job :) Also I would like to give some credit to their Chocolate cone (It's a bit bitter so it cuts down some of the ice cream's sweetness)
Green one on the left is Pistachio ice cream , on the right is Durian ice cream
# Durian ice cream on a Chocolate Cone-RM11.80
I think this is one of my favorites ! It's so good ! This Durian ice cream is the bomb diggity ! It's not too sweet , it's really fragrant and it feels as though you are eating the Durian itself ! So creamy , So delicious , So much love for this amazing ice cream!!!!
If you ever come to Inside scoop do try this!

# Waffle with Double Scoop Ice cream
They did their waffles right! It's soft , moist and crunchy on the outside even though it's not as good as Brown Pocket's waffles but it's quite good ! :) We topped it with Dark Chocolate ice cream and Pistachio .
Their Dark Chocolate ice cream is really good too! It's a bit bitter , rich , creamy and fragrant . It's just the right balance ! So much love for this dark chocolate ice cream and their waffle!

Perhentian Island

Hello people ! I'm back again and I have so much to talk about my previous trip a 4D3N trip to Long Beach , Pulau Perhentian Kecil :)
I did not take the plane there! Me and my cheerleading friends went there by car it was a crazy 7 hours plus drive! It was fast and furious indeed!
We took a speedboat to Long Beach , Pulau Perhentian Kecil and I have to tell you it was amazing! :) The sea water there was blue it wasn't like an algae color! It was so clear , the sky was clear , air smells like sea water and it's just a breathtaking view! You're being surrounded by beautiful sea water , some trees and great company .
At the Jetty!With my friends (Ignore my no makeup face please it's too ugly!)

Speedboat ride!!! Cherish photobombed us !
On the speedboat to Long Beach!!! It's beautiful ain't it?! I've never been on a speedboat before this is my first time and it felt amazing! Like you're on a super bike going at 150 it's fast!
Baby sea turtles that the restaurant workers rescued or stole (not so sure about it)

Now now ain't it cute!!!

Selfie before jumping into the water!
It's about 4pm if I'm not mistaken! :) At Long beach you can't see the sunset you can only see the sunset at Coral Beach!

It's as though the ocean and sky meet here!

Mini boats to transfer people form the speed boat to shore :)

Proper picture from the speedboat of Long Beach before being transporter to shore by a mini boat :) 
When we arrived at Long beach it was almost evening time so we checked into our hostel it was rather deep into the forest and a bit far from the beach at first ! There pathway wasn't properly done and there weren't any lights along the pathway so remember to bring a torch light when you're going out at night :) I suggest that you do not carry a big luggage bag too because there's no bell boy service ! Self service for all! We had dinner by the beach at this Family cafe place they serve pretty decent sandwiches (do keep in mind that this is a tourist area so prices of everything are marked up by quite a lot )
Chicken Mushroom Sandwiches (RM13 if I'm not mistaken)

Nasi Pattaya (RM12-15) I forgot the price but it's around there :) It's not too bad ! 

There's one particular cafe that I would highly recommend ! They have high speed internet (compared to any other place that I've been to on that Island) it's called EWAN'S CAFE! They serve really good food! I am so in love with their Butter Fish with rice and their CARROT MILK! If you go to EWAN's CAFE please try these two items out I give it a 9/10
Not the best picture but this butter fish is really good! It's about RM15 if I'm not mistaken! ONOMNOMNOM

What to do when you're at such a beautiful Island?! Of course you go Snorkeling silly!
We went snorkeling at Rawa Island and even had a simple BBQ by the beach while watching the sunset! Rawa Island is beautiful :) You can see corals and fishes from above , it looks so shallow but it's not so if you don't know how to swim please wear a life jacket!

#Snorkeling long trip (that means to 4-5 places is about RM45-50)
#Snorkeling short trip (meaning 3-4 places is about RM35-40)
#Snorkeling to RAWA together with Sunset (RM60) + BBQ (Depending on what you asked for example how many chicken and rice box)
I'm sorry if the prices are not accurate but these are a rough estimation so you'll know how much to bring  !
I have no idea what Island this is but it's near RAWA island!:)

Beautiful sunset!

There's no one else here except for us it's as though this is a private island for us !*Jokes*          

Sorry I'm not a very good photographer but ain't the water here clear and beautiful!

Speed boat ride again to Rawa Island! Grace was driving without a license D: (Jokes the driver got a bit bored so he let Grace take over the wheels! )

Peace sign that I made ! I'm all geared up but water keeps getting into my goggles D:

Coral reefs :)

More corals cause the fishes ran away when they saw us coming :< it was so difficult to get a good picture of all the fishes!

Part of the cheer team taking picture on a rock while the other cheer boys are preparing for ze BBQ!

That's me in the middle we were trying to do a pyramid and that's the best picture we've got before we all tumble down :D

PS: Do not step on the corals even though they look like a flat surface stone cause they might attack u!
If you really want to watch the sunset you can walk to Coral Beach from Long Beach :) That's Coral beach ! I prefer Long Beach because the Sand is as smooth as silk like literally! However in Coral Beach there's really a lot of corals washed up and it hurts when you walk on it :<

Sunbathing on the beach with my bitches ;D

Long beach tourist picture!

More pics!

Groupfie !!! ain't the water clear?! so beautiful !

#1. If you're on a budget please bring snacks from home , water and some bread (because it is quite expensive Chipsmore there cost RM6 , Seamaster water cost RM4 and the list goes on so bring some food if you want to spend more on other stuff)
#2. Don't forget sunscreen it's really really hot ! Most of my friends got sunburn ! Get Sunplay 130SPF !
#3. Don't bring a big luggage if you don't need to cause you'll be carrying it all the way to your hostel/chalet !
#4. Torch light
#5. Extra towel to sunbath on the beach
#6. Mosquito repellent
#7. Bring extra money just in case of emergency
#8. You're gonna get sand on your bed sheets and everywhere
#9. Long beach has fire shows , shisha and mini pubs where you can buy booze
#10. Don't not leave your items unattended , my friends lost their wallets there
#11. Have dinner before 10:30pm because all the cafe and restaurant closes after that!
#12. Sunscreen cost RM45-50 there so you know the drill don't be smart and say you'll buy it there
#14. Bring goggles cause the sea water is really really salty I can barely open my eyes without it burning D;
#15. Always check and make sure the person in charge of your snorkeling plans knows where you want to go cause we were supposed to go for a long trip but ended up going for RAWA trip and BBQ but it's not too bad.
#16. Before you jump off the light house , jump in a projectile motion and vertically if you fall horizontally man it's gonna hurt !
#18. Bring a blanket cause the hostel there don't provide blankets or towels or extra floor mats
#19. Bring your good friends and just have a ball over there!

I hope you enjoyed this blog post!
