#Beauty:1028 Visual Therapy is bringing desserts into our beauty routine!!

I am all about that sugar sweet candy thing ❤️


'Your gurl' here is so excited to get hands on and be creative with 1028 Visual Therapy beauty products! As much as I love pretty little things, I want to make sure that I bring out the best of visuals in these pretty line!

1028 Visual Therapy is an affordable Makeup range from Taiwan. Customised and developed to suit our Asian skin, now we do not have to worry and think twice if the product is suitable for us. Yay!


I've received 6 makeup products as above. The products are pretty sweet and adorable, makes me go 'awww' all the time I take them out to use! 

I will now take you down the road of my review with taken visuals inspired by my imagination! 

Introducing the Desserts! 


Buttercream x Unseen Mesh Compact Cushion 
This cushion is smooth and very velvety to the touch! I know velvety texture may feel oily but it finishes with a matte, shine free finish. This means that it is not drying and locks into your skin perfectly! The cushion foundation contains Vitamin B3 and SPF30 which is a plus point! However, there is no coverage for this cushion which a concealer will come in handy! I am happy with it because it finishes off like a Clear Korean Skin! 


Macaron Dust x Ultimate Oil-Control Powder
I'm in loooove with this powder! It's so light and doesn't cake up my makeup. In fact, the finishing is more velvety than ever, leaving my skin feeling so light, smooth and natural! One more best thing is that the foundation doesn't darken after long hours! #JACKPOT


Dark Chocolate cream x Ultimate Super Black Eyeliner
 &
Dark Chocolate Bar x Longwear Eyebrow Definer
Eyeliner: Saturated and intense black pigment, the tip of the eyeliner is like a marker pen with a sharp tip allowing me to be precise with my cat eye! Also, the eyeliner was still on even when I went through a sweaty conditioning in the gym! 
Eyebrow Pencil: Just as it's name, the tip of the pencil really helps to define and create my desired eyebrow shape! They come in two shades, Light Brown and Dark Brown.


Swatches of the eyeliner and eyebrow pencil! Can you see how deep black that eyeliner is?! 😍


Black Icing x Hook Mascara
Omg guys, I mean girls! This Mascara is amazing! I am totally 'shippin' the bristles because it doesn't clump my lashesss!!! #WIN I personally already have long lashes, so the coating and extension of this mascara is clean and purrfect! It also contains Vitamin B5 which helps repairs daily lash damage while strengthening the eyelashes. It's like killing two birds with one stone! #WinWin situation right here ya all! The only small downside is that it is not waterproof but hey, we don't have to go through all the pain and losing our precious lashes.


Macaron Eyeshadow Kit
Highlight Product
The Macaron palette consist of 6 sugary nude shades. I personally do not like heavy makeup so the shades here are perfect for me!


 As you can see from my swatches, the shades are pretty nude! I really love how the shades are so bendable from the lightest to the darkest.

Dessert Usage and Routine! 


After priming my face, I pretty much spread the Buttercream on my face! 


And then, setting and dusting it with some Macaron Dust! 


After that, I define and fill in my brows with Dark Chocolate 🍫


Then, using the shimmer shimmery Macaron Palette, I layered on the lightest on my lids and proceed with a darker shades as I move towards the outer corner of my lids.


Lastly, I finish it off with the Black Icing Mascara! 


The finished eye makeup should look like this! Loving the gradient and simple shade! ps, excuse my stray strands of leftover lash extensions that is still dangling on my own lashes haha.

#WeekendRecap: Avacado toast in Beans Brothers!!

Since I've signed up for the next Powerlifting meet, I had to start eating clean (but obviously I failed many times because my self control is weeeakkk af lol)

Just last week, me and my bee decided to go for a 'clean cheat meal'. I've been thinking about Avocado these days and I know Bean Brothers have the perfect Avocado menu to satisfy my cravings! For all you guys who don't know, their menu is super yummy.

Till today, I'm still thinking about their burger with blue cheese! It may sound 'eww' but, I swear to God the combination of meat and blue cheese is all you need to hit 'that spot'. (Sadly I did not take a photo of it last time, and for sure I will come and hunt it down again after my Meet)

Beautifully crafted Avocado Toast with Quinoa and Salad on side. So Clean and Yums.

 Somehow, my bee always pick the wrong choices. I've been telling him that the burger here is oh so damn good and surprisingly really healthy and clean (If you change the fries for salads) but he never listen to me anyway ):

He got the Big Bro! (Big Breakfast) Not really a good choice for someone who's cutting hahaha.

We pretty much just had out brunch, took lots of ootd's and finally did my product shoot for Melvita! (Like finallyyyy)

My post for Melvita here!


I will not spam my ootd's but here's one for you!

Overalls: Monki
Earrings: Forever21


Ending with my 'hiao' face!

#Beauty: INSTANT RESULT FACIAL TREATMENT with Mary Cohr

If you see me up close in person, my face is at the worst state ever. Blackheads on my nose are so obvious, my complexion is just all dark and patchy, white heads black heads every yadah yadah. Can't even comprehend this situation, I haven't got time for any facials since 6 months?!

Fortunately, I got invited by Mary Cohr Malaysia to review on their latest treatment: Catio Vital Youth Treatment with device (worth RM319). Best highlight on this review is that it visibly & instantly (not even joking) rejuvenates the skin by stimulating cellular activity. PLUS, It's Personalized based on your beauty goal!! When I meant personalized, it's really personalised from every corner. Let me explain in a bit.


Guys, I mean girls, please jump with joy now because this treatment does not need the painful extraction and your pores will be taken care inside out and yes, it will be clear and clean. 

This also means, we don't need to suffer a burning red, scar'ed face and putting on makeup right after the facial is not a problem!! #Amen

HOW IT WORKS? 
Just to briefly remind you about biology, our skin's cellular activity diminishes over time especially moving towards the 30's. Without proper love and care you may look older in a shorter span of time. #truthissad This is why, Mary Cohr invented the CatioVital Youth Treatment to save your young and bouncy skin. 

CatioVital Youth Treatment involves:
Thermal Energy with Heating Mask
Higher temperatures increases cellular activity. The heat will eliminate excess sebum and toxins from the skin! 

Molecular Energy with Dynamic Ionisation
I know the words sounds complicated but this part of the treatment allow and improves penetration and optimal effectiveness of the active ingredients contain in the Serum Gels. This two (I call them) rods is super soothing as it move around the face! Almost took a nap too. 

Massage using Essential Oils
Adapted to the different skin conditions, Essential Oils releases beneficial properties and beauty-enhancing energy deep within the skin.

I mentioned earlier that this facial is fully personalised based on your skin concerns and needs. Mary Cohr have a wide range of products that will definitely suit your skin needs from Normal Skin, Dry Skin, Oily Skin, Anti Ageing, Nourishing, Moisturising, Purifying, Double Youth and more!

This facial treatment focuses on every part of your face, from my experience, my eyes, nose and other areas of my face had different needs and I was given different serums to nourish different areas. I haven't seen any facials that does this! 

CatioVital Youth Treatment offers 7 Options base on your skin condition and beauty goal:

1. Anti-Ageing
2. Anti-Wrinkle
3. Gentle Moisturisation
4. Gentle Nourishment
5. Purity
6. Brightening
7. Sun Preparation/ Repair
 (What? You can even fix your sunburns or prep your skin before going under the sun! #WIN)

Unfortunately, the products above is only available for beauty saloons to carry out facials but they also have similar products (just in different packaging) for your own home care!


Here they are! I super love how gentle the ingredients are to the skin. There's no doubt it is fragrance free, light and easy to use! They gave me some products to bring home and I'm super loving it.


Final Verdict:
The treatment was amazingggg. It was only an hour but I am super happy and pleased overall, not just my complexion but also how supple and clean my skin feels. My dark spots were instantly lighter and my face was like a baby's butt?!?! haha

Definitely recommend this to you females out there who needs a good pamper facial right now! In fact, you can do this facial because any events so your makeup will go on smoothly and nicely. #Tips
