Sneak Peak of the Revlon X Lazada Surprise Box!

I was very excited to receive the Revlon X Lazada Beauty Surprise Box as you are know how much of a beauty junkie I am!

There’s a total of 5 items in the box and today I’m featuring two of my favourite products from the box!

First up is the Revlon Colorstay Eyebrow Liner!

I love that it’s creamy and really easy to draw! Plus it’s waterproof and almost budge proof after it settles. And it’s always a plus point when the pencil comes with a spoolie brush to brush through the brows for a softer effect after drawing. Would recommend a light hand when using this eyebrow liner as it is also very pigmented!

Next is the Ultimate All-in-One Mascara!

This mascara comes with a mini brush that makes it easy to get to the corner lashes, making sure that no lash is left out!

It provides volume, and help to lift up the lashes and also lengthens! The colour is also super intense to give you the defined look! And of course, it’s waterproof! No smudging even after an average of 10 hours wear!

Nicely defined full brows with lashes that are plumped up in length and volume thanks to the Revlon Brow Liner and Ultimate All-in-One Mascara!

There are only 42 boxes available that will be released throughout the 3 days of the sale so fastest fingers first! $29 is really worth it!

My Sephora MOTD Makeup Haul

Sephora totally replaced my to go place for makeup when it first landed in Singapore. I’ve been a regular shopper there to satisfy my makeup addiction since then, almost never leaving Sephora without a purchase.  And it’s no surprise that I am a black card member with unlimited 10% off because I always hit the $250 mark to qualify for it.

So when I was offered credits to do a makeup haul from Sephora, I was more than happy to do so! I did try my best to keep within budget but I ended up spending some extra dollars.

Sephora Haul Fit For An MOTD

It’s not easy to decide on what to buy when there are thousands of choices out there! Hence, I decided to narrow it down to brands and picked enough items which allowed me to create a makeup look.

Kat Von D

I’ve picked up an eyeshadow palette in Rust and a Studded Kiss Lipstick in Adora from Kat Von D. Kat Von D is pretty new in our local shores, and is famous for its Tattoo Liner! I already have the liners, foundation, and concealer from this brand. Hence, I’m curious on how the other products perform so I’ve got two items!

Tarte

I love my Tarte blushers for its longevity and pigmentations that could be built up. The Tarteist Contour Palette is great as it has all the products you need for contour and highlight including a lovely blush shade!

Nudestix 

sephora-haul-nudestix

This is a brand which I’ve yet to try. I picked up the Eyebrow Stylus which comes along with a gel. I would say it’s pricey for a brow product but I’m pretty much blown away by how soft the pencil is and the ease of use.

Makeup Of The Day With Sephora

My makeup of the day using mostly loots from this Sephora haul except for mascara and base! I really love how the Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipstick in Adora is such a wearable red! It’s suitable for everyday wear!!

Shop Your Favourite Makeup With Sephora Online!

And it’s great that Sephora now have an Online Shopping platform! Shopping for your favourite makeup brands can be now done here in the comfort of your home! And it’s great if you don’t like waiting because they usually released new brands online first!

Plus I love how they deliver to POP Stations as there is one near my office. I can just collect at my own time once delivered, not having to worry about having no one at home to receive my precious Sephora haul!

Have you recently haul at Sephora? Let me know what have you bought!

Ladies Circuit Training Class by Kevin Chiak

Group photo with fellow bloggers and our trainer, Kevin after our Ladies Circuit Training Class.

I’ve always been quite active back when I was still in school with all the physical activities going on. After that, I became inactive for 3 whole years before I got into a fitness program that involves group training back in 2013. Say group PT, Zumba class, Kickboxing and even Hot Yoga. I went on to join a gym and was quite active joining classes like HIIT, MMA, Hot Yoga, Boxing etc. But ever since I switched jobs and my timings clashes with all the group classes, I realized I’m not as motivated anymore. I go to the gym, do some exercises on the machines and I leave. Zero interaction with no one but the machines. Motivation level goes all the way down.

Simply put, I work better in a group environment and is more motivated in a group. It’s ok even if I don’t know others in the group, it just feel good to have company working towards the same goals and going through the same thing.

Hence, when Herine asked if I was interested to try out the Ladies Circuit Training Class by Kevin, I decided to give it a go and re-embark on my fitness journey once again.

 

Ladies Circuit Training Class

The Ladies Circuit Training class consist a mixture of Resistance Exercises (Strength Training), Cardio for a full body workout. There are about 11 – 14 stations and we have a minute at each station before switching over to the next station. There’s a short break of around 30 seconds between each station. A circuit class usually goes on for 3 cycles.

The exercises might seem easy or I should say it seems easy for me at first. On the first cycle, I thought to myself, this is not too bad. Second cycle, Kevin increased the resistance level of the machine and I was thinking ok, I can feel my body working and I’m sweating. When it comes to the third cycle, I was dying and I questioned Kevin if he increased the resistance again but nope. We all felt that it’s harder as our energy level probably got used up in the first two cycles.

“I hate crunches!” I never failed to complain about the crunches while doing it and the rest of the ladies laughed. This is what I like about group training, going through thick and thin together. Haha. If I was doing this alone, I will probably just skip doing crunches. However, with the others around I’m more motivated to complete the exercise.

Here’s a photo with our Trainer, Kevin. To be honest, I was pretty intimidated by his body building photos online but he’s really friendly and jovial in person! I’m glad that I took up this opportunity to train with the rest of the ladies under Kevin.

All information for the Ladies Circuit Training Class is as above in the poster with special promotion if you sign up with a friend! And if you require more information, check out Kevin’s FB page!

Did I also mentioned that I woke up with muscle aches the following day after my first circuit class? Definitely a good sign as it means my muscles are working! Can’t wait for the next class and to a fitter me!

Grooming for The Men: Classic Facial

This is the first of a mini series on grooming for the men in collaboration with my sponsor Nouri Face & Body Concepts. Featuring Isaac Chan, an executive working in advertising by the day and a DJ by the night.

For a start, we will be featuring the Classic Facial treatment by Nouri which results in clean and glowing skin. The Classic Facial involves basic cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, mask and a soothing massage. Valerie from Nouri provides the most thorough extraction to ensure that most of the impurities are removed.

Check out the video below for the Class Facial treatment!

This photo is taken right after the Classic Facial. No editing involved except for resizing. Check out the nice glow Isaac have after the treatment. I’ve observed that guys tend to get better results after a facial treatment which involves extraction to rid of the impurities in the skin.
