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!

Review: PonPon Stampi Stamp On Brows

Eyebrows in just 3 seconds – PonPon Stampi

ponpon stampi

I’ve picked up the PonPon Stampi Eyebrow Stamp Pen from Watsons awhile back as the idea of an eyebrow stamp is really interesting. We have seen Eyebrow Powder Stamps around on Youtube but this is the first time I’ve seen an eyebrow liquid stamp pen.

What’s in the kit?

The PonPon Stampi kit comes with the eyebrow liquid pen and two sets of stencils for the brows. We have the Natural Style and the Mode Style.

The Mode style stencil is thicker at the start with a soft squarish edge while the Natural style is thinner and a rounder, softer edge. I would say the stencils are a little short for my brows though.

The eyebrow liquid pen has got a cushion tip and you have to twist to get the product out.

Eyebrows in 3 seconds? Really?

I would say not really. The stamping is quite a quick process but this is not a product that you can just stamp and go.

You do have to clean it up and touch up before the brows look finished. Plus, as it’s a liquid product, it smudges when you remove the stencil no matter how careful you are.

Well, unless you have the patience to wait for the liquid to dry to powder before removing it. But that definitely takes more than 3 seconds. You probably need at least 15 seconds for the product to set in and by then it will be difficult to clean it up.

PonPon Stampi Stamp On Brows Worth it or not?

Retailing for $23.90, I don’t think this is a product that makes drawing your eyebrows an easier job. Rather, I feel that it does quite the opposite. First, both stencil styles don’t really suit me as they are a little short. Second, it is messy. You will need to clean it up for it to look decent.

PonPon Stampi Stamp On Brows In Pink Brown

The idea behind the PonPon Stampi Stamp On Brows is good but the end results are not exactly ideal. I’ll still use the Eyebrow liquid pen with an angled brush to draw on my brows as I feel that it’s actually quite pigmented. It does look nice when dry but do note that the product is not waterproof. This can be washed off easily with water.

It’s definitely a fun product to try, but not an effective one. There are many eyebrow products out there which are better. I would think an eyebrow tattoo gel works better than a stamp on brow kit.

Hope you like this review!

Althea Box: Smart Beauty Tools

Althea Box Featuring Beauty Tools for Smarter Application

althea box

Althea has put together a Smart Beauty Tools box which includes items from Skincare, Beauty Tools to Makeup to help one to create a flawless look! Let’s take a look at the items in the box!

Althea Box: Smart Skincare

The first step to flawless skin is oil-free skin and clean pores! The Black Block soap and Pore Cleansing brush from BB& Soap provide you with just that! The Pore Cleansing brush fine bristles will get deep into your pore to clear out the impurities while the Black Block with Charcoal extracts helps to leave your skin fresh and oil free!

The Pobling Mini Ion applicator helps your skin to absorb your skincare products more efficiently with vibrating motions. I love using this for under the eyes with a gel eye cream which doubles up as an eye massage!

Althea Box: Tools and Makeup

The COC Pro Skin Adhering brush is a dense toothbrush shaped oval brush which helps to buff the product into your skin. I prefer to use this for targetted areas rather than a foundation brush as it’s quite small. The brush is very dense and soft at the same time which makes it great to blend the product out.

IT’s Skin It’s Top Professional Touch Finish Correction Foundation is a medium to high coverage foundation which leaves a semi-matte finish.

A beauty blender lookalike, It’s My Magic Sponge did a good job in blending the foundation into skin. The tip is not skinny enough to reach into corners though.

An eyelash curler with a comb that is supposed to help prevent any clumping. Only useful if you curl your lashes after mascara. If not, it works like any other curler.

The Pink Heart brush from COC which is a multi-purpose brush that can be used for powder, blush and contour. I like how fluffy it is and how travel-friendly it is due to its short handle!

Get Ready With Me Ft Althea Smart Beauty Tools!

I’ve used some of the tools that came in the Althea Box in a Get Ready With Me Video! Enjoy and see how I put the tools to use! 🙂

Althea Box provides free shipping with their best price policy! Also, do not worry about the authenticity of the products as they have an Authentic Guarantee! The Smart Beauty Tool Box is currently out of stock but there are so much more other quality products on the Althea site so shop away!

Sinar Eco Resort: A Tranquil Escape From The City

sinar eco resort

Covering over 8 acres of land, Sinar Eco Resort has got two main areas, one side being the farm/camping area near to the river and the other side is where the lodging area is along with the main reception.

Located in the small town of Pekan Nanas, the resort is just an hour drive away from JB Sentral Customs. So don’t be surprised if you find yourself surrounded by Palm trees during the drive into the resort!

Sinar Eco Resort: Modern Lodging in a Farm

There are two kinds of room option at the resort, one being the container rooms which as the name suggests, built using those shipping containers. The other option is the apartment rooms which is in the same building as the main reception area. Apartment rooms are suitable for families or bigger groups.

Standard Apartment Common Living Area

Standard Apartment Room

Standard Apartment Room

Apartment rooms are suitable for families or bigger groups. Each apartment room requires a minimum of 4 to stay and they share a common living room within the apartment.

Nautical Theme Apartment

Nautical Theme Apartment Room

The furniture in the apartment were all built by the staff at the resort. They have a workshop by the farm area where the staff are able to create furniture etc based on their own creativity! There’s one apartment which is a Nautical theme and the idea came from the staff!

Inside the container room

Container Room Washroom

Container rooms are more suited for couples and fit maximum up to three persons. I stayed at the ground level container room and love how easily accessible I can get back to my room. The full-length window in the room allows for good lighting in the room and I love it! The room comes with all the amenities you will find in a standard hotel room.

The rooms are of a modern design and are very clean and comfortable. And yes, the bed is really comfortable! The rooms definitely exceeded the expectations of one would have from an Eco Resort.

The wallpaper is a perfect backdrop for selfies~ 😀

Food @ Sinar Eco

Yummy fried rice served during lunch.

Meals are served at the cafe right next to the reception area. I must say that I’m very well fed with the delicious home-cooked meals served up by the resort! There’s Fried Rice for lunch, Fried Chicken Chop for dinner, Nasi Lemak for Breakfast! You can opt for BBQ dinner at the poolside too!

Farm Experience & Activities At Sinar Eco Resort

Getting Up close with the Farm Animals!

Being a city girl, I hardly ever got close to farm animals even as a kid. Sure, there’s the zoo but there’s a barricade in between so you don’t really get to touch the animals. So when I saw all the animals, I was squealing like a kid. I must say I was a little scared too but you can’t blame me when you have baby goats running up to you and trying to play with you. But the baby animals are so adorable!!!

Tell me, where can you get to carry a one-day old baby sheep? Such a darling!

Getting to meet and touch the animals are not the only thing you can do! You can get your hands wet while having a go at milking the cows, and ride the horses too!

It was my first time seeing horses in real life and I was overwhelmed with excitement! I had a go at riding the horse and it was so tall!! I must admit it’s a little scary while I’m riding the horse but I was at ease because the groom was holding and leading the horse all the while.

Adventure at Sinar Eco

Other than having fun with the farm animals, one can have a go at activities like ATV rides, Kayaking, Eco-Rafting and Archery etc. You can also take either a day or night cruise down the river.

I had a go at Archery and I must say it’s not as easy as it seems. Air pistol or the real deal for me anytime! Lol. The ATV ride was fun and filled with adrenaline rush and be sure to expect mud flying all over if it’s wet!

Went for the river cruise at night and had a lovely time enjoying the night sky filled with stars! I even spotted a couple of fireflies on the ride! I definitely recommend the cruise at night! For the more adventurous type, you can even camp at the riverside for the ultimate experience!

Fun Fact: All the rafts were built by the staff at the resort! And while I was there, they are in the midst of building a 2 story raft! How cool is that?

Relax and Chill At the Resort

After all the fun and adventure at the resort, you can also opt to chill by the poolside at night and have a BBQ dinner.

Spacious Pool Room to accommodate large groups.

Karaoke room with large screen and great sound system!

They also have a very well equipped Karaoke room for you to sing to your heart’s fill. No worries about noise pollution since the only one who might complain are the chickens and goose near to the Karaoke room. If you are not a fan of singing, there’s always the pool room. 🙂

An overview of the resort from the rooftop.

They are also building a Sky Bar at the rooftop of the apartment block. I went up there and the view is awesome. You get a great overview of the whole resort! Imagine relaxing at the bar in the evening with the awesome view. Can’t wait to see how the bar looks like once it’s completed.

Thoughts on Sinar Eco Resort:

Just officially opened in October 2016, the resort is pretty new and they are adding new things every now and then! I highly recommend this place for a short getaway from the bustling city life! The resort is great for families and also suitable for young adults like me! There’s something for everyone to enjoy!

I enjoyed myself during the 2 Days 1 Night stay over at the resort and it’s a really nice break away from the fast paced city! Would love to return when their sky bar is completed!

Here’s a video to sum up my 2D1N stay at the resort! 😀

Tokyo Travelogue: Visiting Tokyo Tower

Visiting Tokyo Tower: A Dream Come True

tokyo tower

Being an avid manga fan when I was much younger, I have known Tokyo Tower well through the mangas. Especially in my favourite manga, Magic Knight Rayearth, where the main characters first met each other at Tokyo Tower.

So even though there’s a newer Observatory which is the Tokyo SkyTree, I know Tokyo Tower is the one I have to visit! It’s the landmark that I die die have to visit, fulfilling that little childhood dream of mine.

Heading to Tokyo Tower

Tokyo Tower can be accessible from several train stations. Akabanebashi and Kamiyacho are two train stations that allow you to reach Tokyo tower under a 10 minutes walk. So depending on where you’re from, take the train to the nearest station and take a short walk towards the tower!

tokyo tower wefie

No need to worry about being lost, just look up and search for the tower and walk towards it! 😀

tokyo tower tickets

Tickets are at 900 yen per person! Which is a lot cheaper as compared to SkyTree.

A shot of the Tokyo Tower up close. It’s really awesome to finally be there looking up at the tower.

Being an observatory tower, there’s really nothing much except for the city views at the top of the tower. If you are up for something more exciting, you can pay extra to climb up nearer to the top of the tower. There’s this photo taking spot in the tower where the friendly staff are more than willing to take a photo for you with your own cameras if you allow them to take one for a printout. Of course, they are selling the photos and you can choose not to buy if you don’t want to. They are selling it at 1300 yen which is pretty affordable to me so I got it as a souvenir. 🙂

The famous Tokyo Tower Reflection. I’ve read all about it and feels so happy to be finally able to see it with my own eyes! The roads are shaped in a way that it seems like a reflection of the tower. Fascinating isn’t it?

The tower looks super pretty at night too! Such a lovely view to take it! I’m really happy and satisfied to be spending my evening at the Tokyo Tower.

Heading to Tokyo, Japan soon? Check out HotelsCombined to hunt for the best hotel deals for your stay! So much more convenient to be searching through deals with just one site instead of opening up all the different sites and slowly comparing one by one!

It will be great to search for a hotel with a view of Tokyo Tower! Imagine waking up and going back to the lovely view of the tower every day!
There’s still a couple of posts left for Tokyo and I’m heading to Bangkok in a couple of days! Stay tuned for more of my travel posts!

XOXO,
Joyce.Forensia
