I’m sure many would have seen or read about or heard about the Imju Dejavu Fiberwig mascara. It is touted as Japan’s best selling mascara and I first saw it in Malaysia in the last year or two. It was about that time that I was learning to use mascara and was looking for a good one.
A friend from Hong Kong told me to try the Dejavu Fiberwig mascara. According to her, its nothing short of awesome. However, being a little bit of a skinflint, I balked at paying RM49.90 at Sasa for it. On my last trip to Bangkok, I happened to see it at a Watsons for only about RM25! (have I mentioned how I love to shop in Bangkok?!) So I picked up a tube of Fiberwig in Pure Black to see what the hype was about. Continue Reading ►
If I can’t look like Gisele Bundchen or make it to Ipanema, Brazil, at least I’ll have her sandals!
Joining the ranks of Kimberly, Tine and a whole host of women worldwide, I present my latest acquisition – Gisele Bundchen Ipanema sandals. Yes, I capitulated to the hype.
Why not, when I picked them up for RM56.90?
Spotted these at a store called Novo in Bangsar Village II and decided I’d get them because they are cheaper than RM69.90 which is the going price at Studio R and Royal Sporting House stores. Yes my mind works in strange wonderful ways. I reckon this is an older designs but I like the colour because it won’t show up dirt so easily!
Thus far, they are comfy on the feet but pinch a little between the toes. What I like is that they are noiseless, so I can creep around without making a sound. I don’t like flip flops because of erm… the flip flopping sound it makes so I prefer to wear sandals to slippers.
For the price I paid, they’d better last me longer than a year!
For all my love of blushes, I think it would surprise many to know that I don’t own as many blush brushes as I do blushes. In fact, I used to own only 2 – MAC 129 from a travel set and The Body Shop blush brush. I’ll review them separately in due course.
However, I recently got my hands on the Anna Sui Cheek Brush #2. This is a round blush brush with a flat top. I was quite puzzled as to how to use it when I first got it but now that I’ve gotten the hang of it, I love it!
The Anna Sui flat top blush brush has rather short but dense bristles. Continue Reading ►
UPDATE 2013: NARS Cosmetics WILL be in Malaysia in November 2013. Read all about it here and my Holy Grail concealer that soon everyone can try right here! More updates will follow.
Are we going to see Nars Cosmetics in Malaysia soon?
A little bird (thanks Monstro!) tells me that Nars will be in Malaysia soon through Ken’s Apothecary. To be honest, my interest in Nars has waned due to inaccessibility and because other than Nars Blushes there isn’t much else I like from Nars.
It will be nice however, to see the brand in Malaysia finally even if I’m expecting very marked up prices. I wonder how much the blush will cost. It costs US$25 (RM80 at an exchange rate of 3.2) and I bought mine from Hong Kong for HKD190 (RM95 at the exchange rate then).
I’m expecting it to cost at least RM120. But we’ll see.
If you like Nars, keep a look out in June 2008. Details will follow as I get them
Update March 2011: Since many people have asked, there is no official word on NARS making its way to Malaysia as of now. When it does, we’ll bring you an update. Until then, you can get them from a few online sites notably strawberrynet (review here) and kissandmakeupny.com (review here).
