{REVIEW} The Balm: FratBoy Shadow/ Blush

Image
Hello pretty awesome! Another simple review for today. This is another favorite from my last beauty swap. Have you heard of The Balm? If you're a makeup 'obsessor' like me, I bet you'll love The Balm. I always wanted one but never had them. In Malaysia, I considered The Balm to be quite a high end brand since it's pretty much pricey compared to other brand. But who can blame them for being pricey when clearly they are so irresistibly charming with the packaging design and the quality. I especially love the vintagey graphic on all their packaging. Wishing that The Balm will be wide in Malaysia someday.
Thanks to my swap partner, I got to taste the best of The Balm. Frat Boy shadow/blush by The Balm is obviously for your eyes and cheek. The packaging are made from hard paper which is really light to carry. And as I mention before, I love the packaging graphic which is totally old school. With just one swipe you can already see that pigmented salmon pink. I've us…

Hello pretty awesome! Quite recent product review I've posted is an item that I got from my swap. and today, is another product review that I got from my beauty swap. Okay okay, promise this is the last item to brag about. Like The Balm, Physicians formula is another brand that is on top of my wishlist. In overseas, Physicians formula is considered a prestige drug store brand since they made so many high quality makeup. Whereas in Malaysia, Physicians formula still hasn't make it in our local drugstore but you may find them in few online shop. I first know about Physicians formula through a beauty youtuber based in US. Right away, I can tell that this is an awesome product as they claim that..

{REVIEW} REVLON COLORBURST Matte Balm

Image
Hello pretty awesome, this is a pretty simple review for a pretty simple day. Few days ago, I had posted an entry about my first beauty swap. Yes!!! It was ah-mazing..and one of the item I got was this Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in the shade of RED number 204.
I had mentioned to my swap partner that I'm in love with red shade as being a 'makcik2' I was....Red is definitely in...and one more thing about lip product is that I love matte ones. So she got me this one..I love Revlon since Emma Stone rocks it. I always adore her looks. She's like, so gorgeous yet so girl next door. Plus, I love the movie Spider-man where she and Andrew Garfield was totally awesome. Back to a more related topic, I saw this balm in Watsons which is my local drugstore and cost around RM30. I was going to buy one but I kept on postponing for an uncertain reason.
My day got lucky when I received this. So I have been testing it out and here's my simple honest verdict. At first sight and try…

Beauty Swap: A way to let your vanity travel and How- to guide

Image
Hello pretty awesome!

 I always often dream of doing a beauty swap since I saw in you tube how fun they were. You know I don't get to travel as much as I wish too. So thank you technology that enable me to do beauty swap. I know some of you might not even know what beauty swap is..So let me introduce beauty swap to you first.
Swap is basically like a 'barter' system where you swap your things with someone else. A great even ethical swap should be same in quality and value. In beauty world, we girls or gay guys or guys swap beauty stuff with a corresponding person. A corresponding person can be your friend, your family, a stranger and anybody. Usually, we do beauty swap with a person that lives different country to enable us to discover beauty products from another country. It can be a country that far apart from each other or in your own region. The main concern in doing beauty swap would be the budget and finding legit non- scamming swap partner.
Thanks to my friend Cind…
