Sephora Long Lasting Brow Pencil: is really Long-Lasting and easy to use!

I was never really an avid user of eye brow products. And that is because I seldom care about my eye brows which I think I shouldn't! I once joined a beauty workshop that said that eye brow grooming is important because it helps to shape our whole face to become fresher. Well...haha...

Anyway...recently I picked up the long lasting eye brow pencil from the Sephora Collection. The Sephora Long Lasting Brow Pencil comes with an eyebrow grooming brush that really useful for brushing the eye brows. Out of the 3 shades available, I chose the shade Medium.


The brushes reside on the cap and is pretty strong (from my random point of view haha). The color of the cap represents the color of the brow pencil and gosh, when I first saw it I am a bit worried it would become too dark!

Clinique All About Eyes Concealer for that Eye Beauty

As I have pretty obvious dark circles and puffy eyes, looking for a good eye concealer has always been in my beauty hunting list. While I don't always conceal my dark circles (because I always prefer prevention i.e. skincare to fix my beauty flaw rather than conceal it temporarily), sometimes I just need a quick solution to cover the dark circles, especially when there are some functions to attend. And eye concealer is of course, works better than eye cream when it comes to a quick and fast solution.  (─‿‿─)


And my recent favourite eye concealer? None other than the Clinique All About Eyes Concealer....it is a multi-tasking concealer that disguises dark under-eye circles while helping to reduce the look of puffiness. There are several shades to pick from to fit your skin tone; I chose 01 Light Neutral.

Benefit It’s Potent! Eye Cream: Subsides Dark Circles for Brighter Eyes

Eye care has constantly been big part of my skincare...because my eyes are the first to show the sign of aging, not to mention my busy job which cause my eyes to show the sign of stress....Thus, a good eye care, for me, would has to have the key benefits of moisturizing and anti-aging, but hunting for a good eye care was never easy!

Recently, I had the chance to try on the eye cream from Benefit...I have always been amused with Benefit packaging which full of all those buzz words that would for sure tempt the weak soul of a beauty hunter lol...the for this eye cream, Benefit shouts, It’s Potent!  ╮(─▽─)╭ So we shall see how 'potent' it is?


First thing on the packaging; I like the soft pastel color and design of the box and the jar label, and of course, the chic and cute little glass jar that comes with a lid designed to look like a cork (but it's not cork lol) Nonetheless though, jar is never really a good packaging for skin care. Every time you lift the lid, the cream is exposed to outer light and air which may hamper the effectiveness...Oh well...

When my Sister upgraded to become my Guardian Angel...

I will never forget the night of 16 September 2016. It was the last night where my Sister looked at us with opened eyes, trying to talk to us albeit having difficulty to speak and make a proper sentence. Never did I suspect that, it was really the last I would look at her eyes, and the last I would hear her voice. 


Past midnight to 17 September 2016, she fainted and was rushed to the Emergency ward. She was still alive; but in a very not good condition according to the doctor on duty. The naive me started to plan to cancel the Australia trip and instead to spend the time to take care of her during her recovery; refusing to accept that she was in a life or death situation.

She was transferred to ICU in the afternoon. And still in coma. I was shaking during the whole period. Keep asking myself, what was happening? One day before, Sis was still talking to me, very much awake, telling me not to worry and go ahead with the luncheon which we had initially planned to go together. And now, she was lying on the hospital bed, with all the machines supporting her. And we had no idea at all what was happening. Doctors suspected she having SLE. Gosh what is SLE? But this could only be confirmed after performing the lumbar puncture procedure, but there's a problem...Sis was very weak and the platelet count was very low, thus the procedure could not be done, until she is slightly better.

Applying Australian Electronic Travel Authority for Tourism Activities

Visiting Australia has always been a hassle-free, at least for the travel visa application lol.... Many years ago, when I visited Perth with my sister, we applied the travel visa via online and I was thinking, this got to be the most convenient government services that I ever encountered. Think about saving the hassle to visit the Embassy, not to mention the terrifying KL traffic and parking woes!!

As I am visiting Australia again soon in coming October, again I visited the Australian Immigration website to apply for the travel visa, which is actually called "Electronic Travel Authority (ETA)".

This is the website for the online application: https://www.eta.immi.gov.au/ETAS3/etas

​What is an ETA?
An Electronic Travel Authority (ETA) provides authorisation to travel to and enter Australia and is electronically linked to your passport.

It is for short term stays for tourism or business visitor activities.

Business visitor activities do not include work. If you want to do short-term, highly specialised, non-​ongoing work in Australia, you can apply for a Temporary Work (Short Stay Activity) visa (Subclass 400).
