Review | TheFaceShop Phytogenic Infinite EX Powder Foundation

Sunday, 17 April 2016

When I got my first foundation from Korean beauty company which is TheFaceShop, I thought I was gonna need a setting powder that goes with the foundation hence I got this together (plus a concealer that I thought might help concealing my imperfections) but turned out I was wrong. 

Phytogenic EX Powder Foundation SPF20 is actually kind of similar to its sister product that I've mentioned earlier only in powdered form. 


Beauty Essential | Office Desktop

Now that I'm currently stationed in an office, I need to have certain beauty items on my desktop so I don't have to reach for my handbag or backpack (I sometimes bring my MacBook with me) everytime I need to refresh myself. 

Review | Etude House Real Art Mild Cleansing Oil

Wednesday, 6 April 2016

I always assume that when a product kept being manufactured and sold in the market for a long time and every now and then it got repackaged is a sign that the product is a best seller and very popular among beauty enthusiasts so when I heard this oil-based makeup remover being featured in Get It Beauty some years ago, I went on a research and got my hands on it but as I have other makeup removers, only now I reached to a point where I'm allowed to open a new product.


Beauty Talk | Wash-Off Masks

Monday, 4 April 2016


Last night, I posted the above photo on my Instagram and I thought, why not make a post about it? :) So, if you're wondering, no... that's not all of my scrub and wash-off mask stash. Most of them either in packs or capsules that I placed in the fridge (I really love putting on cool cucumber or bamboo masks) but these are the ones that don't require me to keep them cool. 

If you didn't know, my skin is Normal to Combination so I require some clay mask to keep my sebum control at balance, mask to remove occasional blackheads, and scrub which is my favourite kind of wash-off mask.

Review | TheFaceShop Phytogenic Infinite EX Foundation

Sunday, 3 April 2016

I started doing makeup I think around last year, as evidenced in this blog; for base makeup, I started with cushion foundation instead of foundation. The reason is definitely because cushion foundation is much easier to apply than foundation which requires a brush or two or maybe a beauty blender. Well, I never apply anything but skincare using my fingers so I always assume to apply makeup using tools. 

So today I'll be doing a review on this product from TheFaceShop which is Photogenic Infinite EX Foundation with SPF20 / PA++ that I got two months ago from a local TheFaceShop store here in Malaysia. This is the first foundation I ever bought from Korean beauty brand. 

Drugstore Haul | Maybelline Malaysia

Saturday, 2 April 2016

I think it's safe to say that my hauls for this year is more on makeup rather than skincare unlike the past few years as I'm getting more and more interested on applying makeup by myself plus ever since I started working, the need to appear presentable in front of others is always there but all the more reason to do makeup for me is actually having fun by myself. 

Review | Etude House Zero Sebum All Day Matte Gel

Friday, 1 April 2016

One of the first things I wanted to dip my hands into when I tried to get into a little bit more into makeup is learning more about primers. There are few different features when it comes to primers and bases but the way I see it, primers are more into perfecting the condition of the skin; talk about sebum-controlling or hydrating primers whereas the bases are more into the appearances of the skin or canvas for your makeup; the tone, imperfections and etc. 

One of the products that I've tried in that primer category is this product from Etude House, the Zero Sebum All Day Matte Gel. 


I was looking for a primer with basic function like sebum-controlling or at least balancing the water-oil level in my skin so as I was going through Korean beauty shops here in Kota Kinabalu, I've found this for a start.
