On the previous post, I talked about a cleanser from Laneige that I finished in the last quarter of the year and as you probably expected seeing this review, indeed I purchased 2 at the same time so I am currently on the second bottle.

Looking at the products that I've managed to finish for the past quarter is definitely making me proud of myself. Before becoming a blogger, I never really finished my skincare and most of the time, I just tossed out things I don't want to finish or just can't as they're already expired.
I've managed to finish some makeup items and another round of skincare this time so without further ado, let's get right into it!

I gotta admit that I've been having this lipstick for about 2 years (I was trying really hard to remember when did I got this from mom) and it went deep into my makeup stash. I totally had forgotten about it until yesterday when I was looking for my Laneige eyeshadow kit palette that I got as a sample and that's when I saw it sitting prettily next to each other.
The previous Holiday edition of Laneige BB Cushion is still pretty to me. I hope this year's design will be way prettier~

So far, the only premium hijab I ever bought and wear is from TudungPeople. It all started when a classmate back university raved about a Tudung modeled by a 5th year senior in our Architecture department but the fact that the brand was founded by another senior of ours who made, designed and sold these beautiful hijab at several countries including Brunei, Singapore, Japan, Australia, UK, and Saudi Arabia amazed me so much that I became an instant fan of the brand itself.
The first hijab that I bought are from the Maysaa and Lamia collection and then I was introduced to this premium hijab line which is Numa Luxe.
Above are from the earlier Numa Luxe collection that was released back in February. I got mine in Sephia and Russet. You might think they're almost identical but that just lighting. Russet is slightly darker and warmer than Sephia.
The hijab in this line are made from Poly Crepe. They're thin but still quite opaque and definitely don't require for me to wear something beneath just to cover my neck. They flow beautifully no matter what kind of style you're pulling.
The hijab from previous collection are quite heavy and thicker compared to the new ones that I ordered (and launched at their online store) 2 weeks ago.
I got 3 colours! The first one is my current favourite which is Fairy Dust, a beautiful dusty or mauve purple. I finally found a colour that can go with my Vietnam silk-made baju kurung.

I have tried several types of mask that help with my sebum control and so far I've encountered clay masks and this egg white mask from Skinfood.
If you're familiar with Skinfood then you'll definitely noticed how simple and traditional their packaging is. I mean, comic san font. Really? But then again, I'm still loving their wash-off masks from the first time I've tried them until today.

One of the best thing about buying Korean beauty products in local stores is definitely the membership benefits. Even better, if you reached VIP status. Brands like Laneige, Sulwhasoo, and of course, Innisfree are all under the giant cosmetic company, Amore Pacific. As these brands opened branch stores here in Malaysia, us VIP customers get to experience if not fully, part of the benefits being the brand's VIP customers in Korea. Being a Laneige Malaysia's loyal customer for at least 3 years, I think it's safe to say that the VIP customers get like 30 to 40% of the benefits given to those in Korea. You know what I'm talking about if you compared the gift tiers offered in Malaysian stores and Seoul stores.
Anyway, 50% of something is better than 100% of nothing so when I get the chance to redeem the VIP kit from Innisfree twice this year, I'm more than elated to receive them. Fully thanks to my friend who were willing to pick this up from the store at Pavilion KL.

It's been real busy for the past few weeks at work and I guess I'll be continuing my simple night routine for another 2 weeks before going through the evaluation for my confirmation at the company early next month so in this 5th out of 6 series of this MasCream Sheet line from TheFaceShop, I'll be reviewing my favourite variant so far which is Goat Milk.

I used to post Beauty Haul of the month at the end of that month but I've been changing my schedule and do my shopping at the beginning of the month so I guess they won't be much difference, right?
These days, my heart just scream "more makeup, please!" even though my brain (and my bank!) nodding my head and pulled me away every time I was passing by Sephora and makeup boutiques. But of course, I can't just not to get anything when Sephora was having Double Points day. For the sake of getting Sephora Gold!! haha
