My 2015 Beauty Regime

Here's Welcoming 2015 with Open Arms.
To kick start my 2015, I plan to INDULGE in a nice PAMPERING SESSION with these products, with special thanks to The Butterfly Project Malaysia

These items for my pampering session were from the Butterfly Beauty Box.

A) L'Occitane En Provence
Having tried numerous hand creams and lotion in the market, somehow this L'Occitane Velvet Hand Cream seems different from the others.
What I love about this is that its creamy texture gives my hand an instant hydration boost almost immediately upon my first application. 
 Just a small amount of this white velvety cream is enough to give you soft smooth hands as smooth as silk with moisture retained throughout the day (unless you wash your hands lah of course) 
It comes in a nice floral scent that is too good to be true. No...don't try and read my palm :)
It's non sticky and gives my hand a healthy glow and shine. I would rate this hand cream 4.5/5 rating compared to the other brands that I have used in the market.

B) Always 21 Aloe Vera Soothing Gel Mist
An instant squirt of freshness now comes in a bottle of soothing gel mist.
 A gel mist a day,
Keeps me refreshed all day!
Just spray on to your face with our without make up for an instant wake-up call.
The formula is soothing and refreshing with light aloe vera scent.

C) Matrix Biolage ColorLast Shampoo
Nothing beats a nice refreshing hairwash at the comfort of your home. Ahhhhh...time to pamper myself with the Matrix Biolage Shampoo (made in USA), imported by Loreal Malaysia. Biolage is an exclusive blend of unique botanicals with the use of latest technology to deliver gentle, hight-performing formulas to enhance the beauty of every hair type. The range I tested is the ColorLast specially designed for color treated hair.
This shampoo is low in pH. It purifies and helps prolong color vibrancy.
 With just a small amount used,
 It works up a great lather too! Time to flaunt my new hair in 2015!

D) Nature Republic Snail Solution Hydrogel Mask
This transparent hydrogel mask sheet comes protected with peeled-off sheets for top and bottom parts of the face.
Simply remove the protected sheets to uncover a gel-like mask that offers a refreshing and soothing effect. After a 20 minute regime, my skin feels refreshed and firm.

E) Hydraluron Moisture Boosting Mask
Lately my skin feels dry. Thank goodness for a moisture boost mask to help rejuvenate my skin. 

Time to give yourself some love and that pampering that you've always been longing for.
Take time to rest, relax and rejuvenate your mind, body and soul.
Here's wishing everyone a healthy, happy and prosperous 2015.
Have a blast and a great one, my friends!

My 2015 Make Up

Thanks to The Butterfly Project Malaysia I get to try on these lovely make up to kick start my New Year in 2015 so full of sweetness.

A) Dolly Wink Liquid Eye Liner (Black)
Being a fan of liquid eyeliners, I just couldn't get enough of it. I have more than 8 eyeliners and I keep buying more and more. I was jumping for joy when there was one for me to review in the Butterfly Project Beauty Box. I have been wanting to try Dolly Wink Liquid Eyeliner for the longest time. 

Being an eyeliner fan, I have tried many types before from super thick brushes to fine ones. But I must say the size and thickness of the brush is perfect and is just right! The brush is not super fine nor it's super thick. I would give this a rating 4.5/5 out of the so many eye liners that I have tried. 
 Here I am testing out on my hand and its resistance to water. 
Clearly it doesn't dissolve with water because it's water proof.
It's also smudge proof. I love the dark coat on my eyes. The black is pretty intense.
And it's very easily removed with an oil based remover.

B) Maybelline Colour Show Nail Colour
      (Shade: 010: Pink Voltage)
  I just love the sweet pink shade. 
I tested this nail colour on my mom's nails.
It's not too dark and compliments her fair skin tone very well.
After 2-3 coats, the colour gets more solid.

C) Collection Hotlights Lipgloss 
I find the Collection Hotlights Lipgloss packaging so innovative and complete. This product's packaging is so well thought off without having to carry a separate mirror. Why? 
Because the product comes with a side mirror!
Not only that, you can even use it while applying this lipgloss in the dark.
 See the shimmer lights from the wand. When you twist and buka the wand masa nak apply, the bright lights will automatically shine. 
When you close the cap/wand, the lights will sendiri turn off. 
 Isn't this amazing!
The colour memang is light on my nude skin. Afterall it's a lipgloss.
It is advisable to have a base colour before applying.
 This lip colour (pic below) was achieved with a combination of Maybelline Baby Lips and Collection Hotlights Lipglioss. Ain't is sweet.

D) Maybelline Baby Lips Coloured Lip Balm
     (Electro pop)

This was how the colour appeared when tested on my hands. Very light sweet pink.
Not as bold as seen on the stick. So not to worry ladies.
Sweet smelling watermelon flavoured lipbalm.
Its light weight formula glides smoothly on my lips giving it a tinge of light pink colour.
This is just perfect for me as i do not usually wear bold lip colour. A tinge of the Maybelline Baby Lips and I'm ready to go.
Here's to a great start for 2015!
How do you like my make up?

 The crowd cheered when she gave it her all and reached some very high notes. 
Yes, Edazz. 
You can do it!
 Next, we did a duet of Let It Go and the crowd got wild and sang together with us. It was such a memorable sight singing in front of these butterflies and everyone sang along! 
And I meant they really sang along! Thanks for being so sporting, guys! Love you all!

Special thanks to @singingcoconut for capturing the massive sing-along!
