❤ Recent OOTD and Shopping at ZALORA ❤

Hello hello.. Today I would like to talk about my recent purchase with ZALORA Singapore and my recent OOTD.  Haha I got a new camera too recently!! Its Samsung NX Mini in PINK~ Ya you know what attracted me to get this camera already right? Its PINK!!! I will do a separate review on my new LOVE soon!!
I am recently a little obsessed over online shopping since I am not working now at the moment. Too much free time so I tend to browse through online stores and now that most of the online stores have apps on android phones, makes it easier and more convenient to SPEND money.
I purchased a Birkenstock sandal from ZALORA recently using their Friday Promo. The original price of the sandal is $109 SGD and $15 SGD was deducted using the Friday Promo. So I got my lovely pink Birkenstock sandal for only $94SGD which is totally worth it. I think the retail price of the same sandal is already higher than the original price quoted on ZALORA. 

This is my 1st purchase from ZALORA, and I didn't really expected that the shipping would be that fast. I made my order on Friday and it was delivered on Sunday. I initially thought that I will only received the following week as Saturday and Sunday is not considered as working day (I am an impatient person when comes to shopping online. Long shipping time makes me sad).
The item was nicely packed and delivered to my door step. With a purchase of more than $40 SGD, I am entitled with free shipping (yeap!). They offer flat rate shipping at $3.90 SGD for orders below $40 SGD. It also comes with a Ezyreturn label from Singapore post, which means should any defects found on the item received, you can return the item using the label provided.
Unboxing time

Isnt my new Birkenstock sandal lovely? I used to have one in red but it was VERY UNFORTUNATELY stolen when I left it outside my friends place. If you love your shoes, dont place it outside HDB corridor After this incident, I will never leave my shoes outside my house. Even friends who came to my house, I kept all their shoes inside my shoe cabinet (shoe lost phobia) hahaha
WinWins OOTD

This OOTD was taken I think few weeks ago before my Korea Trip. I was attending my friend sisters wedding dinner. I am wearing a cut out dress from H&M, Peep toe Heels from Prettyfit and my Chanel WOC. Love my pink wall as my OOTD background (Haha its the same wall that Yoki always take her pictures)
While I am surfing and playing with my mobile photo editing apps, I came out with a few similar styles with some pieces found on ZALORA. My Favourite is Chic Style 3. Love the dress!! It is TOTALLY my style. 

Ezra Cut Out Tank Dress + Mango Punk Cross Body Bag + Melissa Spikes II Peeptoe Heels

BLAKE & CO Exposed Shoulder Dress + New Look Knotted Peeptoe Heels + Something Borrowed Leather Weave Quilt Chained Bag

Neon Rose Lace Caging Dress + Lavina Korean Handbag 207 + Melissa Ultragirl Patent Heels
There are so many designs available on ZALORA website and I just filled up my cart with a couple of items (feeling guilty) Hope you guys like the post I have shared.

❤Review: KLARITY Lasertox CC Miracle White Lotion ❤

Hello I am back for another review Before I start with the actual review, just give some updates to you guys I have recently found a job, didnt expect so soon but yeah I had like a 2 months rest after my previous super duper stressful cum tiring job.

My skin condition has improved, I think my acne breakout is due to the Shu Uemura cleansing oil (not that it is not a good cleansing oil, is just not suitable for my skin). After changing to cleansing milk, my skin condition has improved a lot. I also changed my skincare routine (more careful in choosing my skincare & makeup products) and of course with less stress now, it also helped on my skin condition.

Let me know if you guys are interested in my latest skincare routine and how I cleared up my sudden breakout.

Ok now back to the review on Klarity Lasertox CC Miracle White Lotion.  The PR from had contacted me and asked if I am interested in trying this CC Lotion, after reading on the product information that was sent to me, I took up the offer. Whats so good about this product that attracts me? Its because its PARABEN FREE and NON-COMEDOGENIC. After my sudden acne breakout around my cheeks, I became very caution when choosing skincare / makeup products. 

CC Lotion applied to left side of my face.

Klarity Lasertox CC Miracle White Lotion Product Information
What is lasertox? Lasertox is a functional treatment methodology that brings you targeted treatment to improve on specific concerns, by adopting the laser technology which reinforces efficient penetration of the natural beauty essences into skins dermis layer. Lasertox is researched by dermatologist in Korea with formula from France and Switzerland.
Lasertox CC Miracle White Lotion helps to restore beauty with at least on tone lighter whitening effect instantaneously. The lotion is enriched with diamond powder, giving instant glow after application. It is also enriched with wild rosehip extract, a powerful source of antioxidant that helps to prolong skin youthfulness. (winwins tot: After applying the cc lotion, it did brighten up my skin tone a little, refer to the 2nd picture with cc cream applied only to my left side of my face. PS: please ignore my dark circles..Horrible!!).
It contains SPF 30 / PA++ which helps to protect skin from harmful UV rays, preventing photo-aging and dark spots. The 11-in-one multi function CC lotion is light on skin and colorant free. It does not clog pores and leaves skin smoother and more moisturized without stickiness and oily shine. (winwins tot: The cc lotion did not cause my skin to breakout or clog my pores. Its not greasy at all and absorbs quite fast. However, its slightly dry on my skin).
The 11-in-one function includes: Whitening, Purify, Repair, Firming, Smooth, Soothe, Hydrate, Tone, Anti-aging, Sunscreen and Waterproof.
Price: $29 SGD for 30ml & $49 SGD for 100ml (winwins tot: quite affordable to my opinion)

Winwins Overall Tots
 I overall like this product, the only downside of it is, its slightly dry on my skin but I guess if skin is properly moisturized it shouldn't be a big problem. I will continue to use it and update more on this product.
The cc lotion has a really smooth texture; it does not contain colorant unlike the normal cc cream that will change colour when applied onto skin. I used it as a base to brighten and even out my skin tone then some concealer to cover my dark circles and blemishes and loose powder (refer to 3rd picture with my full makeup).

❤ Korean Haul 2014 – Etude House ❤

Hello hello!! I am back from my Korea trip (like for weeks but haven have time to share my hauls). I will be separating what I have hauled from Korea by brands and today we will look at what I have got from Etude House (my favourite place to go the price is reasonable and most of all the packaging is soo princessy totally my style!!).

I have got quite a number of items from Etude House, both skincare and makeup. I didnt dare to get too much random skincare compared to my last trip to Korea as I have mentioned, my skin condition is not very good recently and had breakouts that I have never had before sad!

The 1st shop that I visited in Korea was Etude House, its a readily available there, and everywhere you go you will see Etude House. I have seen reviews on YouTube on their dust cut range product. This dust cut range is not available in Singapore yet and I am not sure will it even be launch in Singapore. So of course, I need to get some to try. 

Etude House Dust Cut Finish Cream
This finish cream helps protect skin from harmful environment by forming a protective outer film and providing care with its plant extracts that clarify dull and exhausted skin.
 Its used as last step of skincare:
o During the day time it can help to protect skin against harmful factors in the air.
o During the night, it helps to protect against harmful factors remaining in bedding.

After application, a tight feeling during absorption indicates the protective outer film has been formed.

I have used this product twice in korea, didnt really notice much difference however I felt the tight feeling after application. I used it under makeup, yet to try using it as last step of skin care before bed.

Rating:  ❤❤❤

Etude House Dust Cut Facial Mist
This product has similar function as the Dust Cut Finish Cream just that it is in a form of mist. It can be sprayed on frequently whenever u felt threat of harmful environment.
It also have the same tight feeling during absorption which indicates protective outer film has been formed.

I have not tried this product yet so cant really commend much. I will update after I have tried.

 Etude House Precious Mineral Magic Any Cushion
This range of products created a hype on YouTube and blogs. So of course I need to try it out.  Its actually a makeup base that helps correct imperfection on skin but it can also be used alone for those who have less problematic skin.
Its available in 3 colours: Magic Mint, Magic Pink and Magic Peach.
Mint is to correct redness on face, suitable for trouble skin or skin with redness
Pink is to correct dullness on skin, helps brighten skin and more suitable for girls with paler skin.
Peach is suitable for most skin colours. It helps to correct dullness and brighten up skin tones.
Winwins Tots
 I have got the peach and mint refill to try out. I have not tried both yet as I want to finish my existing bases 1st. Will update once I have tried and its available in Singapore Etude Outlets already.
Etude House AC Clinic Daily Toner
This range of products are formulated with Salicylic Acid and Hinoki Cypress, it delivers trouble care and this toner helps remove pore clogging residues.
Winwins Tots
I have tried almost all AC Clinic range products!! And I love them. I have a very nice and smoothing scent and all AC Clinic range have the same scent. I think this is a good toner for trouble skin like me. Salicylic acid is really good and helps to unclog pores. This is a repurchase product and I will continue using it. Girls with normal skin tone can also use this as blemish prevention.  I have to say, among the AC range, I love the pink spot treatment the most.

Etude House Play 101 Pencils
This is a gel type pencil that comes with wide range of vivid colours and various textures for easy and fun makeup play.
It can be used as almost everything. Eye shadow, brow pencil, eyeliner, blush, lip colour and concealer. 
Winwins Tots
I have got 5 colours from this range. My hubby stopped me from buying more haha.. I almost wanted to get all colours. No.4 and No.6 is a very nice colour for highlighting the lower eyelid. No. 1 is just basic matt black eyeliner . No.45 is gold eyeliner which I plan to use as an eyeliner and eye shadow. No.25 is a very bright pink colour and I love this colour the most and plan to use it to create gradient lips.
Overall, I think it is really a great and versatile product. Love it!!! It is also super smudge proof. But I am not sure if Singapore Etude House has it already.
Rating:  ❤❤❤❤❤

This is a picture of me trying out the colours, no.1 on my upper waterline, no.45 as my eyeliner, no.4 as under eyelid highlight and no.25 as lip colour. The colours were washed out a little in the picture but its actually quite vibrant. 

Below are other random products that I got from Etude House but yet to use.

Hope you guys like the post I have shared. Next haul will be on Innisfree products.
