☆*August favorite products*☆ PART TWO!

The second part of my August favorites will cover the best makeup and hair care products.


Kiehl's Ultra Facial Tinted Moisturizer SPF 15 Sunscreen in Light

In comparison with the BB cream from SKIN79, this product is much better in terms of coverage, texture and anti-acne prone. I also heard in the past that tinted moisturizer is frequently recommended by experts because the texture of it is much lighter and there is a large range of shades to suit any skin color. The most recognized tinted moisturizer I heard was from Laura Mercier. It seems to be the all-times best seller in terms of best tinted moisturizer along the base makeup. I tested on my hand the Laura Mercier product few month ago but I never dared to buy it because I used to dislike using any foundation because of acne problems.

To point out about this product is that I haven't got a lot of pimples since I've been using it for a month now. So I'm grateful and enjoying this product a lot.

Although this product also contains sunscreen, the texture does not feel thick or heavy on my face. There is no "cakey" feeling compared to the SKIN79 BB cream in pink. Also, oil-control all day long is really effective.

Product rating: 9/10

Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer in Warm Ivory with Pale Yellow Sheer Finish Loose Powder

FIY: the main reason I'm using this product is because my sister doesn't use it and it's not right color. So I have to use for the sake of money lol

Besides, this concealer is great because it also provided a tiny powder underneath the concealer to set it afterwards. I love this product because it really does conceal my dark circles well. Sometimes, I also use it to conceal some blemishes and acne but I tend to not try doing that because it can cause more inflammation to my acne.

It very convenient and portable, so I guess that's why there is powder provided...why not give a tiny brush applicator too? lol

Unfortunately, I don't think this type of packaging for concealer is available at any Bobbi Brown counter anymore. They are promoting strongly on that new duo creamy concealer kit. Also, another downside about Bobbi Brown's makeup products, they can be a bit too pricey but I guess worth it? This is just my thoughts.

Product rating: 8.5/10

Maybe this color is just too bright for my skin tone :/

Melliesh Blush in Pink 01

I may have reviewed or rated as my favorites before but IT IS a good blush! It's definitely a "dolly-like" blush!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE... XD nothing else I can say.

It has a bit of glitter in it but it doesn't really bother me much. It's very pink though if you aren't too careful when applying it.

Looking where to buy it? I can suggest a couple website for you guys :)


Product rating: 9/10

A bit hard to rate a blush for me XD

Majolica Majorca Puff de Cheeks in Pink 301

Again this another favorite product I already mentioned before. I just love Japanese blushes XD I guess they suit more for Asian? I have to say that this color is more orange than pink (on the label it says "pink"). This blush can be found at any Watson stores in Thailand. The price is reasonable too :)

I like to mix orange and pink color as it goes well with my skin tone. Sometimes I like to use them for natural look or dolly-like look. It's just fun to mix color together :)

Unlike the previous blush, this doesn't have glitter. It's more a matte finish.

Product rating: 8.5/10


Essential Damage-Care Rich Premier with Shea Butter

Please note that this product is the conditioner one and not the hair mask. The hair mask contains an additional ingredient: honey.

This particular hair conditioner has been acknowledged by several makeup and beauty gurus already, including Eki chan, Xiaxue, Bubzbeauty, Suzi of StyleSuzi and Jen of fromheadtotoe. And now myself have to personally say that i love it too :)

It definitely nourishes starting from the root of hair to give and maintain a healthy glow, smooth and radiance to your hair. In comparison to the pink line, this orange line's products are much more richer. It's great and more recommended for those who have dyed, permed or damaged hair. I also love the smell of this product :)

What really made me fall in love with this product more ? Thanks to Jen's new hair care routine video on her YT channel, my hair has gone from very dry to smooth, manageable and healthier hair! Jen said that she likes to cover up her hair, after applying the conditioner, with a shower cap for deeper-conditioning. Well, I tried that a few times and it REALLY work!!! Thanks Jen!! :D So now, I have to HAVE this little orange friend in my shower!! XD

Product rating: 9/10

L'Oreal Nutri-Gloss Light Shine Conditioner

This is another favorite conditioner I have in my shower. Yes! Believe it or not, I have 2 conditioners, 1 hair mask and a shampoo in my bathroom XD I just like to switch around from time to time. Not too often, obviously ^^

What's good about this product?

Definitely gives shine to my hair! And my hair feels much LIGHTER after each use compared to the Essential Rich Premier one! I LOVE the smell too!! :) And it really helps manage and smooth my hair. Good, good! d( ^ ^o)

Product rating: 9/10

Skin Mates Fruit Bio Treatment with Bergamot and Peach

Anyone knows what's a bergamot? I'm guessing it's a fruit? The smell is just wonderful!!! This is a great hair mask!

Skin Mates is, I think, a Thai brand. This product was introduced to me by a friend of mine and I think her parents are the owner of the company. This is my second time I purchased this hair mask from her. It's very affordable as well => 120 baht.

Before I used the two hair conditioners I mentioned above, I used this hair mask every week. This product really helped my hair in a healthy way. It has a similar purpose as the Essential Rich Premier one which is the deep conditioning.

Product rating: 8/10

FIY: I added the shower cap next to it just because it has a good purpose for this deep-conditioning treatment LOL


This is FINALLY the end of my August favorite of the month! I hope you enjoy reading it ^^

Feel free to comment in the section below for any suggestions on improvement of my blog or anything you want :)

Take care!!

☆*August favorite products*☆ PART ONE!

I finally picked my favorite products of the month! I categorized them into skincare, makeup and hair care for you dollz :) But I think I will divide my posts into 2-3 parts as I give a lot of details XD sorry....!

These three products were mainly picked for this month because they showed great results in acne and oil control of my skin.

Neutrogena Fine Fairness Cleanser

I've been using this cleanser all summer. This product was recommended by my best friend and i'm very grateful for the advice but the price in HK is just too overrated.... I can get way cheaper in Thailand!!

What's good about this product?
  • It contains a great formula of Essential Soy and Vitamin C
  • It reaches deeps into skin pores to remove dirt, dead cells and oil without drying your skin
  • It brightens and improve your skin
  • Suit for all skin types including sensitive and acne prone types
My thoughts?

It does the job that what the description says above. There is a trick in this process that I've been doing all summer long, several additional steps I do before I use this product and there is an extra ingredient I mix it up with. But before I get into the trick, this cleanser has definitely brightened up my skin and improve the clarity of it. Also, it helped control and get rid of dirt into my pores so I have less pimples. I would definitely recommend to those who have similar skin types as me: extra-sensitive, acne prone, combination to oily skin type.

My Trick Skin Care Routine?

To be honest, even though I've been doing this routine all summer, my skin isn't perfect. I still have acne popping here and there but at least it's becoming controllable compared to months ago.

I basically use the best makeup remover by Shu Uemuera. I use the green one because it has this gentle feeling on my skin and removes my makeup really well. This is a preference but everybody has different skin type so you need to find out which color suit you best. I would massage it for about 60 seconds. Next, I wash the remover off with water and use my Dermalogica gel cleanser to make sure that my remover got rid off all my makeup. Then finally, I finish off with this Neutrogena cleanser and add a little bit of fresh eatable oatmeal in your palm. After 10 sec under water, the oatmeal is supposed to be wet and softer so you can gently massage it on your face and I end up doing a homemade yogurt mask every. single. night....and voila!

I know this is a lot to do on my poor face but after doing this for a few month now, I'm happy and satisfied. Up until today, my skin isn't dry anymore and less blemishes too.

These tricks are taken by this famous makeup and beauty guru on youtube, Bubzbeauty, if some of you don't know her. You should definitely check out her channel on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/user/bubzbeauty and her website: http://www.bubzbeauty.com
Thanks to her, I'm no more ashamed of my face!!! XD


8.5/ 10

The reason is because I'm a bit scared that this cleanser might still be too rough for my skin. So I think i have to find an alternative to switch around. But if i can't find then I will continue with this one until I find a new one.

Kiehl's Ultra Facial Micro Serum

I've been using this product for a month or so and it's been a great serum compared to my other ones. This serum texture is white and a bit thicker than any serums I know of. But the great thing about this one is that it deeply hydrates my skin very well!
I would give this product: 8.5/10

Kiehl's Blue Herbal Moisturizer

I used this moisturizer the same time as the serum one. These two products are a great deep hydration and acne-prone combo. This product is great for those looking to prevent acne.

What's good about this product?

  • oil-free moisturizer
  • Absorb quickly and penetrates pores to eliminate most acne blemishes and allows skin to heal
  • an additional balancing effect allows the formula to mattify skin, reducing the appearance of pores and leaving skin with a matte, hydrated appearance and texture
  • non-comedogenic formulation helps prevent new acne blemishes from forming
My thoughts?

I LOVE IT! This is one of my favorite moisturizer ever !! Plus, it gives a fresh, minty feeling after application. It's just a nice feeling and rewarding after all the procedures I do every night XD It definitely does help control my acne from forming again but to be honest, I still have acne...just less than before :)) My face is also not dry anymore. It just looks healthier and brightened up! :D

This product will be rated 8.5/10!

These skin care products are just great and will be my BEST FRIEND for many years coming up :)

Now to end my post, I would like to share new stuff I just bought yesterday :) So vintage-inspired right?? XD Well I think I'm that kind of "gyaru" I'm sooooo in LOVE with that green polka dots skirt. And these two cute bows will be my friends. Great cutie accessories :)

Finally!!! I'm entering this giveaway by one of my favorite Japanese blogger, Eki chan! She's such a cute, adorable and sweet blog ever! And I just had to share with you guys because she does a lot of giveaways. Plus I heard from many makeup gurus that the Sigma brushes are one of the best makeup brushes !

Here is the link to eki chan's blog with the giveaway details: http://www.ekiblog.com/2011/08/visit-to-sigma-beauty-giveaway.html

This is finally the end of this entry! Phew!!!

I will continue my favorites tomorrow! XD

OOTD Japanese Dolly style-inspired

My Outfit of The Day is inspired by Japanese Dolly style. But it also reminds me of mori gyaru style which I just learned the term this week through "Style Yourself" book I just purchased this week too :p

As some of you who may have watched some of my videos on Youtube. I did an "intern style inspiration" video using this same dress. Since then, I haven't worn this dress as a weekend look....but i'm really happy with the outcome today :)) so here how I layered my OOTD, enjoy!

First off, because I don't personally like this dress alone. I have to use the layer technique. So I thought of using my denim midi pleated skirt to give some volume to the outfit.

I also used a large brown belt to cover the separation between the dress and the skirt together.

Try to use some accessories you want to "glam up" the look. Gold suits me the most because of my skin tone.

Above, notice that my denim skirt is a little shorter than this floral dress. But guess what? It's alright, it's a style and it doesn't look weird or ugly...right? :)

Finally complete my outfit with my favorite Aldo wedges in cream color. If you guys wonder how high my shoes are....about 4inches-4.5inches? but it's superrrr comfortable!!! :D

Also because I don't own a lot of bags...yet! lol... I think this brown/orange clutch suit best to go with the entire outfit :)

End this entry with some more camwhoring pictures XD

DOLLY WINK by Tsubasa Masuwaka Review

NOTE: products photos source: http://www.tsubacolle.com/collection/produce.php

Today I finally decided to try Tsubasa Masuwaka's Dolly Wink eyelashes! I have to admit that these were left in my drawer for a while and never dared to touch it. The reason is because I thought these lashes (especially the bottom lashes) will never suit me. I tried the bottoms from time to time trying to convince myself: "Yes, Rosie! They don't look funny on you! All Jap models look strange on them, so why can't you?" So today, I DARED myself to try them on for real.... but didn't go out with them...yet! XD

So here are the eyelashes I bought from Sasa in HK, last trip:

These are the top eyelashes:
Price @ Sasa, HK: HKD$ 105 (original price: JPYEN 1,260)

Below is the bottom lashes:
Price @ Sasa, HK: HKD 105 (original price JPYEN 1,260)

The evaluation below applies for both products unless specified.
  • the strip that holds the lashes on is very invisible and light unlike foreign brands like M.A.C eyelashes which are thicker and obvious
  • very comfortable to wear
  • more natural looking
  • suitable for everyday
  • love how each lash is well separated from each other to give this natural look
  • definitely makes your eyes POP! XD
  • the strip is too fragile... lashes can just come off very easily...sucks >.< one of the bottom lash came off already T^T
  • be extra careful when removing the lashes >.<
  • too long so I must cut to adjust them to my eye shape


I have to add that after trying these eyelashes, I feel I want to try the entire eyelash line from Dolly Wink XD but sadly, I have to wait until i go back to HK to get them. At the moment, I only purchased one product each for trial because I didn't believe myself that IT IS possible for these little eyes of mine :P

So after I'm officially convinced, satisfied and HAPPY with the outcome....like any other girls...we would CAMWHORE like a lot !!! XD So enjoy the photos!!! hahah

TELL ME ====> have you tried bottom lashes before? if yes, what was it like? do you wear them on a daily basis now? if you never tried bottom lashes, why is that? Share with me in the comments section below!!

Take care,

Double Eyelid Maker Review

Last visit to HK in May, I finally decided to buy the Eye Talk for testing. In the past, I have tried the tape ones and they failed my expectations so.. I gave up on double eyelid makers until recently. Thinking of it now, I guess I had no idea how to properly apply them..... LOL! Do I know how to apply them correctly today? Let's see!

FIY: I already have double eyelids but they both are tapered eyelids and uneven.

This month I tried to type of double eyelid makers: Koji Eye Talk & Double eyelid tape. I won't be reviewing on Koji Eye Talk here because I already did in my other blog on facebook. But I will transfer the infos to here in the future. So those interested, please be patient ^^b

The main reason I switched from the glue one to the tape one is because of this.....

Instead of this....

I don't get a smooth result like this picture. Also, my eyelids are just thicker than this model and so the "fatness" keep coming forward. There is no change at all... :(

So I decided to try tapes again.

I got these from Loft and it must be from China or HK. These are the only one sold at Loft, Siam Discovery for Baht71.

One package have 100 pairs of tapes for both eye. There are 5 sheets altogether.

After a day of trials, I had this much left on one sheet. I used a lot for the left one because it's my 'lazy eye' and so harder to adjust with the other eye to look even. :/

I've worn tapes for two days now for about 9-12 hours straight. Here is what I get with makeup on.....

And finally, here is after I removed the tapes...


  • Easier to apply than Koji Eye Talk
  • Give a nice result I wanted
  • Good with makeup and without
  • Definitely make my eyes bigger
  • Good price!

  • Tapes are obvious
  • Makes your eyes look sleepier
  • No side effect so far :))


What I hope to achieve from using these is to get permanent double eyelids. I have thought a lot about surgery to make my eyes larger but I'm too scared for the results. Let's see after a month. I will keep you guys posted! ;) So far, I'm liking it!

I would strongly recommend tapes for those interested!

Until next time,
much love!


August'11 Nail Art

I was so inspired by Yui Kanno blog’s post about the nail art she’s done at Nailsalon Malva.

So I got so excited to do nail art again that i spent about 2.30hours pampering myself last night (*´ω`*)

FYI: I did my nails at Nail Parfait, The 19 @ Chidlom venue.
