The Butterfly Project Turns 5 | Beauty

In a magical world where everything that does not makes sense exists, there was a girl – that’s me who lives a usual life like everyone else in her town, known as The Butterfly Valley. During one peaceful evening, when creatures with unimaginable beauty filled the sky with glowing colours emerges from the wake of their sleep. There comes a floating mail from the distant horizon, closing in every second until it alters its direction to what seems a crystal-made glass door which then seeps through the small gap underneath it. The letter made its way through the house and comes to an end of its journey by landing into a bowl of cereal. My bowl of cereal…*cries*

  • Yeah, I was hoping that the letter was delivered by an owl in my world like in the Harry Potter series.

She was stunned to find out about the invitation to a Magical Unicorn Party which was held once every year and only out of 0.00001% in the population had a chance of getting it. Guess who was the one who wrote to her, it was non other than the founder of this magical kingdom (The Butterfly Project), Tammy. She was really honoured to be able to get such an exclusive invitation. Inside the letter includes a few instructions on how and what should one do to prepare for the party. Firstly, is to transform oneself into a unicorn to be eligible in acquiring the teleportation skill to the magical party. With that in mind, she started seeking for unique magical dresses and clothes that could transform her, but after a week of searching, nothing seems to satisfy her yet. Instead, she made up her mind to make everything from scratch with her own materials.

How did she turned into a unicorn?

UNICORN SKIRT

Before making her unicorn skirt, she has to find herself all the materials in order to begin crafting. What she needed is as listed below:

  • Tulle Fabric ( 4 different pastel colour )
  • Pick either one will do( crochet band, ribbon or elastic )
  • Sequins
  • UHU Glue

Its really simple and does not require any sewing. So for starter or beginner or anyone who say you cannot not sew, this is something you can do. The only requirement to make this is your patience and time. As it can be really time consuming, I suggest you can watch a drama while doing it.

UNICORN HEADBAND

Time to play with glue gun, but beware as to not to burn your fingers or even glue your floor. Materials are:

  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Gold Cloth ( I could not find it so I use a paper like cloth )
  • Cotton ( I use styrofoam instead )
  • Hairband
  • Fake Flowers

The whole process is practically gluing. Nothing much, oh and not to forget shaping the Styrofoam into a horn like shape. That might take some time, or you can just use cotton but, you have to sew the bottom and include a button at the bottom to support the horn.

UNICORN MAKEUP

Makeup is always my favourite part as I am so into makeup. Basically the product I use to create the unicorn pastel look are from Colourpop palatte. I do not own purple colour so I do a mixture of some pastel and glitter colour to come up with the look as you can see below. The rhine stone that you can see, you can easily get it from Mr.DIY shop.

Magical Unicorn Party

It is finally D-day! The purpose of this magical party is to celebrate the Magical Kingdom’s 5th year anniversary. After all her preparations, she walks confidently into the kingdom and met many other unicorns that was present that day. Each unicorn have to own a license in order to join the party. Unicorn bags were given to each of the unicorn and their license were taken on the spot along with the bag that were given to them.

After getting the license taken, the unicorns were each asked to pick a magical sit at the table provided. Food were seen placed on one side of the magical kingdom. I guess she only have her eyes on the food as her stomach was growling for food. While she was busy checking out on the food, a magical unicorn with rainbow hair, Leonard pops out from the sky and started the party along with the magical purple unicorn, Tammy.

As the party started, instead of how usual party flows, in magical kingdom there are four different activities that each unicorn can visit. They were each filled with their own uniqueness and specialty. Unicorns are allowed to wonder around the castle to mingle with their new unicorn mates at the same time to enjoy the activities that were provided. Guess which booth did she visited first? Instead of going to any of the booth, she went straight to the food section to make her growling stomach happy.

Unicorn Foods

You know it is a party when you see foods lying around waiting for you to dive in. They are mostly finger food just to fill our tummy, because we are here to mingle and for all the exciting activities, not the food specifically. =3

She than joins her fellow unicorn mates and head to their first booth by Everday Flowers.

Each of them get to handpick their favourite flowers and make them into a mini bouquet.

Each of us get to pick 2 of our favourite flowers. For me I picked another coloured rose instead of red. Something special because I rarely see other coloured roses besides red.

I find it really interesting as this would be a perfect gift for your friends or girlfriend. She used quite some time to pick and choose to create her own very first customized bouquet because there is just to many flowers to choose from.

Next stop would be PICTURE session. There is no party that she or the other unicorns would leave without taking any pictures. Its just impossible. All thanks to GNG Studiobooth, the unicorns get to make their dreams come true and keep the photos with them.

These pictures are really convenient just by sliding them into your purse. Each picture comes with 2 pieces, just bend it and you can share them with your friends. I like to collect pictures and hang them in my room.

It is really convenient and fast way to deliver the photo for any event or party so that your guest would always remember about that special day. It is interesting as the photo would be delivered out in no time right after we took the picture. What makes it special is you can customize the design for your particular event or party and customize yourself as well. Here are some of the pictures taken, not to mention they have boomerang function as well!

Boomerang PhotoBox is an unlimited photo printing service. They were one of the first to try out this new service. GNG Studiobooth uses waterproof and anti-fingerprint printout quality for all their pictures. Some of you might think what is the differences between normal Gif Photobox compare to Boomerang Photobox. The difference is gif uses multiple pictures and combine them altogether, whereas boomerang is a spot live action video recording.

Next, she visited the third station when she heard adoption is available. An adoption activity by 50Gram. Unicorns are allowed to each adopt a baby unicorn and take great care of it. They have to first sign an adoption certificates before having the rights to adopt one as its own. Each unicorn have to even think of a name for their new baby.

  • Basically I was too excited and I messed up the name for my unicorn name. Oh well, let’s just say Chipmunk adopted me 😛

The baby unicorn is actually a mug and its really suitable to put anything you like.

  • Isn’t it just adorable? It’s so chubby, imagine if it’s squishy, I would have just pinch it 🤤 – RM 39,90

For example you can place your jewelry, flowers or even like what she did to her brushes. (picture below) It is really useful and could really makes one life happier by just looking at it.

So what is 50Gram? It is actually a florist shop, but what makes them so special from the others is they do not only provide flower services but they also provide cakes, plush toys, juice and even this cute unicorn mug. It great to have a place where you can get everything all at a single place.

They are currently having Mother’s Day special. 😍 *hint hint*

As you can see the party is filled with lots of unique and cool balloons. I personally love the marble balloon the most. You can get them at non other than Brrrloon. Their balloon can be see everywhere throughout the party and its makes the party look more fun and vibrant.

They have a station prepared as well for us to DIY our own balloon. I find it really interesting as it reminded us about our days as a kid. I really love colouring those days, I even went for colouring contest when I was younger. The way the balloon inflates was really cool, never know this method existed. I find the activity would be suitable for all ages, as its something new to many people and I am positive that everyone would love it.

  • I personally did not try it myself as I was occupied by the other activities and the event was about to end. So instead I brought it home to work on it.

Here’s a video about how the process is actually done.

  • Just Colour it, Hit it, Shake it and let the magic happen.

This balloon 🎈 caught my attention while I was taking my food. It has a golden unicorn on it! 🦄

You can get yours from either Sasa, Watsons or here.

My last gift is from purple unicorn, Tammy. Since its a unicorn event, so there must definitely be unicorn brush. Personally I have one set at home, but I always love to get more brushes especially eye brushes. That’s the brush that I use most often.

About Tammy, she is someone really special in the Magical Kingdom as she is the founder of this community.  I joined the community last year and she welcomed me with big hands. The Butterfly Project is Malaysia’s biggest beauty community which connects us with one another. We build together and read different interesting post from one another. Not to mention the countless support I receive from the community. They often have different activities for us to participate and join. Show some love and support to The Butterfly Project.

Lastly, here marks the end of my story about this magical party and I would like to thank The Butterfly Project for giving me this opportunity to attend such an amazing party.

Bare Essentials by Althea | Beauty

Rumours has been spreading around for a few weeks that a new product is launching that comes familiar to many. Remember I was one of the lucky one to review Althea’s first ever product? If you have not read it, be sure to check it out here after this.

Althea has done it again and surprised us with a new line of product, skin care. I believe if you are into beauty products, finding a suitable skin care products that fits you is something really important. So why not check their new range of skin care products?

Before that, continue reading to find out more about it. There are a total of 3 items and each item that were launched are all important for everyday skincare routine. Have you guessed what are these products? Wait no further, its about time to discover the secret.

The three products are,

  1. ALTHEA, Contour Cleanser
  2. ALTHEA, Primer Water
  3. ALTHEA, Fixer Cream

Althea

Opps, forgot to mention. You do know about Althea, right? If yes, yeah “kaki lang”, but if no. No worries, here’s a brief explanation. Althea is a website where you can find all the popular Korean products all in one place. They contain more than 150 Korean beauty brand just for you to browse through and shop them all just by a few clicks from your laptop/desktop. Althea was founded in 2015 by Frank Kang. He had the thinking of providing buyers from all around the world with one of the lowest price they could get from Althea website just as how Korean residents shop in their own country. Althea is like a representative of Korea to provide authentic K-beauty product just for YOU!

Products

1. ALTHEA, Contour Cleanser – RM 23

Who does not want to obtain flawless skin? Then you should start by trying out Contour Cleanser, clear your pores from all the dirt and leaving you with a squeaky clean face. With that you need not to worry about applying thick base makeup or conceal your face with concealer. You can achieve all that just by using Althea Bare Essentials. Their contour cleanser comes with nourishing ingredients such as ice plant and lemon verbena leaf.

  • Just a small amount would do (in the picture above I squeeze out a bit more than it is needed)

After applying it on your face you will feel that there is tiny tiny things on your face. Not to worry as they are actually micro bubbleshots. It will eventually pops when it get in contact with water. Micro capsules is there to gently but effectively exfoliate and improve the impurities from you skin. Whats more? It also claims to detoxify your skin to transform your face into a more defined and slim face shape.

Usage

Dampen the skin, then squeeze out a small amount (I would suggest just a tiny dot would do) and lather onto the face, massaging in circular motions. Rinse off with water after.

Opinion

When I was using it for the first time, I squeeze a large amount onto my palm and later realize that its really creamy and thick. Only during the second time I know that just a tiny squeeze from the tube is already able to wash of the dirt from our face. Compare to other cleanser that I have previously used, I think this cleanser can last me two or three time longer than my usual time period as the quality is really thick. The cooling effect that I receive after applying them off really caught me off guard. It surprise me but I like how it felt after a tiring day. As for packaging wise, its really simple and free from designs. Tbh,I sometime prefer it that way, as I find some products with too many design a bit distracting. Lastly I would say I did not really like the smell of it. Maybe there wasn’t any scent that was added so the smell are from all of their natural ingredients.

Overall Rating: 4 / 5

2. ALTHEA, Primer Water – RM 43

Here comes the second steps where you get to hydrate your skin after cleansing. Unlike other toner, this primer water helps to hydrates and smooth your skin, leaving it to a flawless finishing. Say goodbye to uneven skin. The magic comes right after the primer touches your skin and penetrates deep into the layer of your skin. Your skin will instantly plump up and your ready for the last steps. 2 main ingredients that were just are as stated below.

Snow lotus – Help to brightens and smooth out your skin.

It can only be found in remotes areas in Asia, that what makes it one of the rarest herbs in the world. Brightening energy, fixing dark spot and anti aging effect are some of the benefits that is still trusted for women in Chinese Imperial Court for centuries, even up until today.

Patented “dewdrop” formulation – Instantly moisturize and revitalizes you skin.

Do you know clear dewdrops helps to soften the skin and improve suppleness by gently filling up the gaps between both skin and pores. (can be use for the 2nd time for a more smoother and velvety soft skin texture.)

Usage

Pour out a small amount of primer water onto your palm/a cotton and apply evenly onto the face. By gently patting it, a better absorption can be seen.

Opinion

I would first talk about the packaging, it really nice and simple. My worry is that its a bit too bulky to be brought along to traveling. If they could come out with another smaller version for traveling kit, that will be great and convenient. On the other hand, if you seldom travel, I think this would just be perfect as it is now. The texture is really unique compare to other toner that I have ever tried. Unlike the usual watery toner, this Althea primer water is much more thick, but it does not feel heavy nor slimy after applying. Instead my face felt really moisturize. After it had dried, my skin felt really smooth and not a single hint of stickiness. As for the smell, I’ll give it a 💯 as it smells really great. A hint of flower smell, something fresh and light. Not too strong to give your a headache. By far the best scent compare between all tree products. 💕

Swatches

Overall Rating: 4.5 / 5

3. ALTHEA, Fixer Cream RM 50

Last step of your routine! 🙈 Never stop your skin care routine before putting on some moisturizer. Out of all 3 products, I love this packaging the most as I have always been in love with matte materials. The texture is really thick but can be penetrates easily into your skin. Besides that, your skin will stay hydrated for the next 24 hours. Keeps your skin moisturize without feeling any stickiness after it was fully absorbed. Something you would not want to miss out to be part of your skin care collection. Few of the key ingredients will be listed below along with their functions.

Image result for blooming cactus in desert

Trehalose – Powerful humectant that retains moisture on the skin

Trehalose is a natural sugar that can only found in certain plant. Its function is to helps survive either freezing or dehydrating condition. You can just observe how a cactus can turn green again even after it being cracked and dried out. (because there is TREHALOSE!) It’s powerful enough to retain moisture on you skin to keep it moisturize all day.

Wild Green Tea – Hydrating, skin soothing and pack with antioxidants

This ingredient can helps user to fight against aging because it contains large amount of antioxidants. Antioxidants that can be found in green tea help in healing cells and he prevent free radical damage. In addition, age spots, wrinkles and sun damage can be reduce. Besides that, tannins can also be found in green tea which helps to act as an astringent to shrink pores.

Baobab Tree Extract – Non-greasy moisturizing agent that helps promote collagen production

This tree can be found in Africa, barren land. A nickname was given, “bottle tree” because of the water retention properties it can preserve. Life force and moisturizing is two of the it’s known ability. Research has said that Baobab has the highest antioxidants content compare to any other fruits. Collagen can be form by using both vitamin c and antioxidants that can be found in it. With this, you can achieve a glowing and radiant skin.

Usage: Apply evenly onto the face and gently pat in till absorbed.

Opinion: The cream texture is really thick and creamy. When I first saw I thought it’s going to be like any other brands that will feel sticky and creamy after applying. I was wrong, it’s the first time I ever use a moisturizer that felt smooth after it dried up. It does not take long for it to fully absorbed. The smell is okay, has a fade flower smell. Overall I give it a thumbs up. 👍🏻

To sums up the whole post, I would say this whole set works really well together. If your young and have never use skin care before. This 3 product is all you need and your all good. As for people who owns many skin care products, this would be something interesting to be added into your collection.

Rich tea polyphenols is extracted out from Sapindus as it can acts as an astringent (helps to minimize pores), clear facial oils, sterilize and helps skin from aging.

Demo Session

Live demo were held to demonstrate the usage of their Diamond Spaindus Soap. During their demo session, they mention their soap can be use as a mask as well. You just have to scrub it and place foam on your face. It’s environment friendly as it does not require any sheet for the mask.

It was proven that many soap that are sold in the market these days are mainly chemicals. A live demo was shown shown and tested right in front of our eyes. Many different soap brands were tested with fire to see if it contains chemicals.

As you can see from the picture above. There are many black burn marks at the right side of the plastics. Those marks means the soap contains chemicals and it melts right through the plastic. As for the left side which isn’t burn and looks transparent is melted Diamond Sapindus Soap. It was proven that it contains all natural ingredients. The melted soap that were on the plastic can still be use after it has cool down.

Overall it is an interesting launch that caught my interest as I never know our daily soap was fill with chemicals. Thank you for having me over at the launch. 💕

Eyelash Extension Experience | Beauty

Ever thought of doing eyelash extension? Or you have noticed many influencers with lashes that are on point or look up to other people that had their eyelashes done so well that it makes you want to try it out as well? Yup, that’s ME!

Always thought they look really pretty with those lashes on. So I was thinking, why not I just give it a try. Seems cool and makes your eye looks bigger as well. So here is how my story goes.

Before I did my appointment, I did googled many things, look them up if it’s a good or bad thing, whether there will be any side effects or nah, and a great amount of researching.

The process

It’s best to go without any makeup or eyeshadow near your eye area. If you’re asking if contact lenses are allowed in the process, it is your free will to decide. I wore mine on, it also depends on the person who’s going to apply the eyelash extension on. If you’re nervous because it’s your first time, I suggest you to remove your contact lens as you might feel a sense of insecurity with it on. It takes about an hour and half or two hours for it to be done depending on the lashes you want to have.

What are my thoughts after having my eyelashes done?

There are many benefits and there are some disadvantages as well. It just depends how your perspective is. You might always hear people mention that after doing eyelash extensions, your natural lashes would fall off as well. In my own perspective, after having it done, there wasn’t any drop out of my natural lashes. Everything is at it is. Here are some of my own opinions on the advantages and disadvantages.

Advantages

  • I could wake up later and get my daily makeup done within 5-10 minutes. It was shorten as I do not have to draw eyeliner or even curl my lashes hence put on any mascara. After having your lashes done you feel like the moment you wake up, you already have 50% makeup on.
  • Going to university is even easier as I usually do not put any makeup on, but now, I’ll just have to pop my lenses in and I’m good to go.
  • Your eye would look bigger and brighter.

Disadvantages

  • For a person who wear glasses 🤓 like me, will find trouble wearing them as the lashes are too long and it will keep touching the glasses. I’ll have to wear them uncomfortably and wear them lower so that it does not touches it. Most of the time I would have to keep my contact lens on until I’m ready to go to bed.

*only applies to people who wears glasses*

  • When you remove makeup, and wash your face, you have to be careful of your lashes as you might rub onto it and it will fall of quicker.
  • Putting eyeliner is not really recommended anymore as I tried once, and when I use the remover, quite a number of fake eyelashes fall off. (Recommend not to draw liner if possible, I had no choice because I have to go for a shooting)
  • When your lashes starts to slowly fall off after a month, you find your eyelashes looks really irregular and weird, because holes will start popping out from the part that the lashes falls out.

Pictures of my BEFORE & AFTER

  • Before

  • After

Overall I find it an interesting experience. The only weird part is after you remove or let all your fake lashes fall off, you will feel as if you have no more lashes. You have that feeling that, why are my lashes sooooooo short even though that’s how it’s original length is. It was just due to the fact that you got too used to seeing the extensions length.

I did my lashes at Luminous Beauty Parlour. Stephy was really nice and gentle, I did not feel any pain at all throughout the whole process. I was practically lying down for 2 hours that made my neck ache a little. I would reckon they should get a softer pillow or towel to support the neck.

Top 5 Favourite CHARIS Products | Beauty

I am quite sure many instagrammers or social media users have at least stumbled across posts by influencers that are using and promoting a product from CHARIS. Sometimes, you might even think twice or feel hesitant to buy products by influencers that promote many products for their sponsors. With that, I’ll be giving you more details about “what is CHARIS?” and my honest opinions for my top 5 favourite products so far after collaborating with CHARIS since July 2017.

Charis

Charis is also known as Madsquare in Korea. Charis is a platform where influencer could try the product and sell the product to gain a slight commission in the process. Whereas the buyers (influencer followers) would get to purchase those products at a discounted rate compared to if you buy them from their original store. So in that case it is a WIN – WIN situation for both the influencer and their followers (customers).

Charis is born and breed in Korea. It is formed by a team of young and enthusiastic people. Madsquare was founded in 2015 and Charis program started in 2016. (This is based on my own research, please correct me if I am wrong)

Top 5 favourite CHARIS products

1. CelabFace, 10SEC 1STEP CLEANSER$24.00

If you’re someone that has a hectic schedule or just really really busy. I totally recommend this product. Applying makeup on may be fun and easy, but removing it is another thing. At the wrong times, you might run out of cotton or cleansing water (makeup remover), which is essential to cleanse the remaining makeup and dirt on the face.

10SEC 1STEP CLEANSER is a product that removes your makeup while cleansing your face simultaneously. It’s basically a 2 in 1 product which helps save your money and provide convenience. What makes it so special? The main ingredient is sparkling water. 💦 Besides that, this product is developed by EI in Hollywood. (best school of professional makeup)

Opinion

To be honest, I am a person where if there is an easy and simpler way to achieve the same result. Without hesitation, I’ll go for it. I find 10SEC 1STEP CLEANSER really handy for home use as well as travel use. I usually have natural light make up on so it really helps to remove them easily. As for thick and heavy eyeshadow, it is easily removable as well. I tried about a week of thick makeup because of my ballet performance and it still works like a wonder. For the downside, I find it’s harder to remove waterproof mascara, eyeliner and matte lipstick. If you know how to work and scrub it at the exact spot and let it rest and bubble up for 10SEC, it should work efficiently. Currently using my 2nd bottle, and the 3rd bottle is stored in my makeup box. 🙆🏻

2. Superface, Soft Blur Lip Mousse – $18

Every girl may at least own one lipstick in their entire life (I guess 🤔). When I was young the only makeup product that I dislike the most is lipstick, but when I grow older, my dislike for lipstick stopped. Ever since, I’ve been having my own collection of lipsticks ever since I was 15. For me personally, lipsticks can instantly brighten up my face even when I don’t feel like applying much makeup or dressing up on that particular day.

So far one of my favourite lipstick in my collection is Soft Blur Lip Mousse. I am not really a matte lipstick person, I would prefer glossy or velvety. It’s texture is liquid but after applying, it dries up and it’s not a matte finishing but velvety. It does not feel dry after applying. My favourite colour is Flamingo because it is very vibrant and stands out.

Opinion

Something I would use regularly. The colour works really well. The only thing I could wish for, is for the product to be kiss proof.

3. Romand, Perfect Styling Eye Palette – $29.99

The feeling of owning your very first palette is how it felt when I got my hands on both Glam Day and Temptation Night. Both palette comes in a really pretty packaging as it have marble design on the casing and easy to open and close as it’s magnetic seal. Which is also small and convenient to bring around.

I recommend Glam Day if you’re a person like me. More of a natural look, like how the Korean’s like it. Their colour are easy to play with and is suitable for both beginners and professionals. It contains both matte and shimmer colour which is all you need in a palette. As for Temptation Night, I would recommend it for people who prefer darker shades. Really suitable for night events or dinner functions.

Opinion

It is one of my go to palette whenever I’m heading to an event or outing. Light and natural colour, not too dramatic. Downside would be, the colour is really light. As I mention, for me it’s great, I love light shade to make it look more natural. If it’s for users who love it at a more vibrant and darker shades, you might not want to get Glam Day. Colour is buildable, so you can apply layer after layer to make the colours POP! 🙈💕

  • Glam Day

  • Temptation Night

4. Dano, Brown Rice Cereal – $15

Cereal 🥣 Cereal 🥣 Cereal 🥣 My childhood favourite breakfast even until today. The easiest and nutritious breakfast that tastes delicious. The colouring on the cereal is just natural colouring and not artificial. Oddly, the more colour the cereal contains, the more I want to try it out.

Brown Rice Cereal is something I tried and fell in love instantly. This days many people pick food that are abundant in nutrition and healthy. If you are one of them, then this is something you would love to try out. Just a small packet can fill your tummy from hungry ➡️ filling. Since it’s healthy based, it does not have any sweet taste in it, like your cereal without any sugaring added.

Personally, instead of having it with milk, I have mine with milo so at least there is a bit sweetness to it. It is small and convenient to bring around in your bag. When you’re hungry just pop open and eat it just like it is. Don’t worry about using your hands, Dano has got you covered as each packet contains a spoon for you to eat with.

Opinion

Healthy cereal that can be consumed by everyone. It is really worth a try! My personal favourite is Kabocha Squash. Again, it looks colourful which what’s attract me to pick that flavour and it’s delicious. 😋

5. La Palette, Softly Moisture One Step Cleansing Water – $12.99

If you’re a person who is more into cleansing water (makeup remover) and not interested in the first product I recommended. Then tadaaaaaa, this is the product for you. A price that is reasonable and something that you can give a try.

Softly Moisture One Step Cleansing Water is something I find different from all the other cleansing water that I have used. Usually all the makeup remover that I use always claims that it’s oil free, but I find after removing my makeup, my face feels even more oily and uncomfortable. Finally I get to try out Softly Moisture One Step Cleansing Water and there you go. They have just got themselves a loyal customer.

The scent is really nice and after removing your makeup, my face does not feel oily at all. You let it dry about a minute and feel your face. It’s really smooth as if you never apply any makeup on. Use it anywhere and anytime without worrying of having an oily face and feeling the need to wash your face.

Opinion

Just one word, wonderful! The only downside is the product is huge and not travel friendly. Solution: just buy a small container and fill it in and you’re all set.
