A while ago, I itched to get something from Benefit Cosmetics, but I balked at paying the high prices we pay here in Malaysia. Yet, I did not have enough in my shopping cart to warrant the free international shipping with purchases of $100 and above. So, I contacted a few friends to share in a bulk order, and 2 weeks ago, our order was placed.
Here are my goodies from Benefit Cosmetics which I received a couple of days ago. Shipping from the USA took just about 2 weeks to Malaysia from the date of the order which I found speedy enough. Also, I was entitled to free shipping since the total purchase exceeded $100. I was glad because the shipping would have cost me $27+ otherwise! Continue Reading ►
Not many skincare products from The Body Shop thrill me. I used to use their Vitamin E cream but it did not work out for me after a while. So, when I first read about how effective The Body Shop Vitamin C Skin Boost was, I was quite sceptical. So sceptical in fact that I only checked it out in the store and put it back because I wasn’t sure the silicone feel would work for me.
A couple of years later, I came across this glowing review on the Vitamin C Skin Boost on Beetrice’s Reviews and something in me snapped. I had to try it!
What this Vitamin C Skin Boost does is to give a boost to the skin of your face. It promises to brighten the face, improve elasticity, neutralise free radicals and soften skin and restore suppleness and strengthens the skin’s natural defence system. All very lofty claims indeed. But what is it really? Continue Reading ►
I’m a little busy so I’m behind on reviews and news but here’s the results of the HPV Test giveaway. I regret that in transit to me, one of the compact mirrors was cracked so I did not think it right to give away something defective! So, I only have 2 sets of mirrors and lip balm to give away instead. Sorry!
The 2 winners are:-
1) Glenis Ma
2) Sophia Low
Winners, please contact me at mwsgiveaways (at) gmail.com with your addresses and I’ll be in touch soon.
I’ll be back with another giveaway later in the month (fingers crossed!)

I’m the first to admit that I do not like nail polish on my nails. I keep my fingernails short and I tend to use my nails a lot everyday either scraping off stuff or picking at things that having polish on them would mean ugly chipped polish in a day or two. For toenails, I have a wonderful way of stubbing my toes on nearly anything that can stub my toe on resulting in … yes… chipped polish.
However, last week, I indulged in a manicure and pedicure to keep my soon to be bridal sister company. Not quite knowing where to go, I decided to try Colour Culture the OPI Nail Bar. Colour Culture is a chain of nail bars owned by the OPI nail colour brand and I’d seen their nail bar in Bangsar Village II off and on. However, a quick phone call told me that they closed early – last appointment was 7.30pm so I opted for the one in the Pavilion that closed later.
1.5 hours and RM65 later, this was the result.
I don’t know if red is in for nails anymore, but I love red polish on my nails, the same way I love red lipstick on my lips. So, red it had to be. Unfortunately I wasn’t paying enough attention so I have no idea what the name of the polish is! haha…
