Horien Eye Secret Lens | Beauty

I’m not sure if some of you, yes you, my audience have noticed or not. Whenever I attend any event or head out, I will always wear my contact lens. You would probably only see me wearing my glasses during normal occasions like attending classes or just chilling at home. To me, having a comfortable and trust worthy brand is important. I’m always out there finding a brand that would really suit me and make my eyes look brighter and a bit bigger. And so, I gave Horien Eye Secret a try.

Highlights

38% Low Water Content Lens

Their lens uses 38% water content which could slow down the speed of water loss on your lens. This could prevent dryness to your eyes and can keep your eyes moisture through out the day. It also contains Sodium Hyaluronate and Trehalose which is the perfect formula to increase comfortability and moisture.

BMW 3D Wrap Colouring Method

Unlike the conventional contact lens, the Horien Eye Secret ensures that no colouring additives are to be leached out. This is because the colour additives are wrapped by HEMA and thus providing maximum comfort. Another which is the sophisticated pad printing machine that can produce high quality pattern in the female mold, allowing minimal contact between the colour and the eye directly and increases sharpness as well as visual accuracy. Besides, the colour lenses is produced through filling and thermal process. Compared with the traditional Sandwich method, Horien’s lenses have flat surfaces that will not crack easily.

BMW 3D Wrap Technology

UV Protection Function

Horien Eye Secret lenses all comes with UV protection. Their lens can block harmful UV lights as well as blocking UVA and UVB to slow down aging corner.

Artificial Intellectual

In order to optimize its lenses, Horien uses a dual aspheric design technology to reach high comfort wearing and high definition vision. In order to allow the lens to provide crisp clear visual in dark environment and at night, improvement of optical aberrations formed by traditional spherical lens is needed and that is what Horien Eye Secret achieved.

My Opinion

I was given 2 colours to try out which includes Vancouver Pink and Madrid Grey. Their packaging is cute and is very light to carry around.

1. Madrid Grey

I really love grey contact lenses as I find it really suits me. But for most grey lenses that I wear, doesn’t really stands out. Great thing is Horien Eye Secret contact lens does that for me. From the lens itself its mostly grey, but I like how it looks like a 2 in 1 colour as after wearing it, my eyes has a hint of light blue colour as well. It looks so special and I really love it.

2. Vancouver Pink

7583920560_img_1795

I’m not much of a pink fan, but this colour isn’t as vibrant as the previous lens. However, it is still good to have a change of colour once in while because even I would get bored of a certain colour if used frequently. So I might probably will wear this colour for my upcoming ballet performance as my costume are all red, so it should really go well with it.

Sometimes when I want to make things look a bit more fun and special, I would mix around the colours. Definitely not my first time doing this and definitely not my last time as well.

I wore Madrid Grey on my right side (left side from readers POV) and Vancouver Pink on my left side (right side from readers POV).

Overall its a great experience as this is my first time using contact lenses from Horien Eye Secret. Compare to others it really does not dry up my eyes as frequent as some of the other brands that I use before. Usually I use eye drops more or less 5 times a day, but after trying this brand, I only use as little as one drop per day. Really satisfied with the quality that this brand promises.

Before & After

  • Left picture is before wearing Horien Eye Secret contact lens. Right picture is after wearing Horien Eye Secret, Madrid Grey contact lens.

Once again thank you Horien Eye Secret for giving me an opportunity to review the 38% moisture, 3 months contact lenses.

Chez Lèoniel | Food

Ever thought of having French cuisine one day after feasting your eyes with delicious French food on television or even on reality show? Do not have the money to travel there to enjoy their mouth watering dishes. Guess what, you can try them now at a French Restaurant located in the heart of Kuala Lumpur. They serve from main dishes to pastries that can guarantee you will fall in love with. And I have GREAT NEWSChez Lèoniel came out with an afternoon Hi Tea set that is really suitable for pastry lovers. You can have your Hi Tea at Chez Lèoniel every week without any worry as they changes their Hi Tea set weekly!

Curious of what they include? I got you covered, they have the following such as Croissant, Pain Au Chocolat, Fruit Panier, Croissant Sandwich, Tart Aux Fraises, Tart Au Citron, Tart Au Chocolat, Assorted flavored Macaroons, Fruit Cakes, Sandwiches, Madelines, Financiers and many more. Just reading about it makes you hungry right? Their Hi Tea set comes in 12 pieces of different pastry specially handpicked by their Chef. It will be serve with your choice of either coffee or tea for the price of RM75 for 2 paxs. Besides their High Tea set, guest could also try out their other French dishes such as:

Croque monsieur

  • A croque monsieur is a traditionally made boiled ham
    between slices of brioche-like pain de mie topped with grated cheese and slightly
    salted and peppered, which is baked in an oven or fried in a frying pan. The dish
    can also be made with normal butter bread,with a soft crust. A simple, cheap
    version uses square toast. Instead of the butter bread, the bread may optionally
    be browned by grilling before being dipped in beaten egg. Traditionally,
    Emmental or Gruyère is used, or sometimes Comté cheese as well. Some
    brasseries also add Béchamel sauce.

*Pictures taken from Google.

Gratin dauphinois 

  • Gratin dauphinois is a traditional regional French dish based on potatoes and crème fraîche, from the historic Dauphiné region in southeast France. There are many variants of the name for the dish, including pommes de terre dauphinoise, potatoes à la dauphinoise and gratin de pommes à la dauphinoise.

*Pictures taken from Google.

I was glad to be invited by Chef Leoniel DG to try out their Hi Tea set along with 3 of my friends. So here’s a picture of what we got for our set. Remember please do not expect the exact same pastries for your Hi Tea set when you visit as they changes their Hi Tea set weekly.

 First Tier

It consist of two pastries:

  • Fruit Panier
  • Apple Turnover

For the Fruit Panier, they serve in 4 different flavour. Not sure what flavour is it, but from my perspective there is Mango, Raspberry, Strawberry and I have no idea. Haha! But trust me, it is really delicious. They wrap the filing really well with croissant. Neither its too soft nor too hard, just perfect. As for the Apple Turnover, its equally tasty as well. The apple filling was wrap in croissant as well if I’m not mistaken.

Second Tier

It consist of three pastries:

  • Financier
  • Macaroons
  • Pain Au Chocolat

Out of this 3 pastries, my favourite would be Pain Au ChocolatThis pastry is basically croissant fill with chocolate on the inside. Not too much, but the right amount of chocolate which its just right for the pastry. Next, Macaroons which comes in 2 flavours. You can either share half with your partner to try out both flavours or each of you pick out your favourite flavour. Financier is a type of cake origin from France. There are 4 pieces which includes 2 original flavour and 2 almond flavour.

Third Tier 

It consist of three pastries:

  • Apple Pie
  • Quiche Chicken Ham and Cheese
  • Croissant

My favourite for this tier would be their Quiche Chicken Ham and Cheese. There is cheese on top and ham on the inside, something you would truly like I believe. Oh and the crust was just nice, not too thick or too thin. Next on the plate was Croissant, this time you will get the chance to try out their original croissant without any filling. Lastly would be their Apple Pie. They slice it in the shape of a pizza, really adorable and instagram worthy.

All in all it was a great experience. I forgot to mention that we had Red Fruit Tea, it goes perfectly well with the pastries. In my opinion you can actually have 2-3 pax for the high tea if its all girls. Please take note that their location is a bit complicated, but you be able to find it by having the correct address. You can find the place by either choosing the few address below in waze, ‘Alliance Francaise’ or ’15 Lorong Gurney’. Once again thank you Chef Leoniel DG for the invites.

Luxury Beauty Lounge | Review

Have you had any slimming sessions before? If you have the chance to try it out, would you go for it? Definitely a yes from me! I would grab this opportunity, if you are afraid of trying new things, you might never know whether you like it. So why deny or refuse when you had the chance to?

I was lucky to get invited by Ashley personally to try out one of their signature treatment, a slimming session. The place is located at Desa Park City new shop outlets, Plaza Arkadia. Their design structure makes you feel like you’re in a western country.

Upon arrival, I had a consultation session with Violet. For slimming session, we can choose which part of body we would like to focus on. For example, the area we can choose from is tummy, thighs, arm and even the whole body. As for me, I pick tummy. It’s one of the important part that people would like to look slim and fit at. I can start wearing crop tops or dresses that reveals my stomach area without any worries.

Next, I was ushered to my room where I would get my slimming session. They have a very unique concept comparing to other places. Each of their room comes in different theme, not coloured theme, but country theme. There was wallpaper of Korea, Japan and other famous countries. For me, I picked Paris.

I was given something to change in. It’s very comfy and make me felt like home. The material is velvety. 😍

As for my session, it takes about roughly 40 minutes. Firstly, they’ll use a machine and massage your stomach while applying an appropriate amount of Latoja cream on my stomach. After a certain amount of time, they will proceed to hand massage. It depends on each individual body fats for them to divide the amount of time using the machine and by using hand massage. The more a person consists of stubborn fats, the longer they will use the machine on you.

  • Function of Latoja cream helps efficiently in burning fats especially with the correct way of massaging provided by LBL workers.

So what’s my thought after the slimming session? Firstly, I really didn’t expect it to be that painful, but in fact it hurts. No pain no gain right?! But I was impressed with the results. With just barely 40 minutes I loss 1cm, isn’t that impressive?

I would really recommend this treatment to people who have a busy schedule at work or class. Less than one hour a day could help you burn the fats you might need to spend a week in the gym. So why not give it a try?

Luxury Beauty Lounge does not only provide slimming session, they do also provide services such as facial, ovary treatment, semi permanent embroidery, bust enhancement and therapy. Not only that, they sometimes conduct workshop or lessons as well. All these will be conducted at the 2nd floor of LBL.

So, if you are interested and would love to try it out. Head over to LBL today! Make sure to make an appointment before heading over to secure your slots.

Arissto ☕️| Review

GBH_1565.JPG

Caffeine lover or not? Arissto’s Italian Premium Coffee will get you craving for freshly brewed hot coffee every morning and may even change your perspective towards traditional coffee. When it comes to brewing coffee, most of us don’t have the time for the normal way where you have to do everything manually, like opening the satchets, stirring it until a strong scent of aroma fills the air. But to most of us, we won’t even have the time to prepare coffee that way, so Arissto has developed and designed a coffee machine specially for their signature coffee’s. For people with tight schedules, just a click of a button away from getting their hot and aromatic coffee.

Arissto

Arissto provides a certain flavour speciality crafted by Italian coffee masters. The high quality Arabica coffee beans were carefully sourced from the mountains at an altitude of 2000 meters high in Brazil 🇧🇷, Colombia 🇨🇴, Costa Rica 🇨🇷, Guatemala 🇬🇹, Togo 🇹🇬, Kenya 🇰🇪, Ethiopia 🇪🇹 and many other countries to come out with a variety of unique flavours that can only be found from Arissto. All of their Arissto coffee capsule can preserve the original coffee taste and aroma without any artificial additives added, this can be done by going through the coffee capsule technology. Love a cup of foamy or creamy coffee? Arissto got you covered with their low calorie milk capsule which can be easily made just by a click of a button. This will give you a brand new experience of tasting a cup of Italian coffee compare to a regular coffee.

Worry about the price you have to pay? Worry no more as Arissto has introduced their Italian coffee at a price range that is 80% below the price of a normal cafe crafted coffee. The price for the machine, Happy Maker it’s FREE! You just have to buy the coffee capsules, isn’t that an awesome deal? One cup of the usual crafted coffee is the equal price of 4 cups of Arissto coffee. For example, if you spend around RM10 per day, in a long term view you could save up to RM250 per month and even RM3000 yearly! The price cut reform has promoted Italian Premium Coffee to a more affordable and popular era.

Flavours

SUNRISE

A perfect balance of nuttiness and richness, it is spirited and pleasing. This is a perfect match for Americano and other types of coffee.

MOONLIGHT

A perfect balance of satisfying medium body and crisp acidity, light body with citrus-fruit note, it expresses a light rounded blend of exquisite fresh fruits.

PEACE

LONELY

Blended from the finest beans from 5 continents, the richness of this high intensity roast provides a balanced taste with notes of bitterness.

IN LOVE

It is a well balanced coffee with medium acidity and body. This coffee has a sweet deep flavour with low bitterness level.

PASSION

It has a strong body with a robust taste like dark chocolate. Due to its strength and is less affected by milk, it is suited for coffee variations such as cafe latte or cappuccino.

LUNA

This blend of Central and South American Arabicas is a dark roast with revolutionary technology, 100% made in Italy, 100% natural without artificial flavorings which reveal distinguished aromatic profile. This full-bodied and balanced flavour with a touch of floral notes makes you feel like you’re enjoying the Italian moonlight.

MILK

As a substitute of whole milk, the calories intake of milk capsule is 80% lower than whole milk. With our milk capsule, the calories intake for a single cup coffee is 5 times lower than any instant coffee. You can enjoy an extra cup of coffee without worrying about overweight.

Althea 2nd Birthday Products Review | Beauty

The long awaited unboxing is finally up! In my last Althea's 2nd birthday post, I mentioned that I would do a separate post for their activities as well as the products that I got from Althea. So, like most blog posts where usually both the activities during Althea Birthday last month along with the unboxing are included in one. I would prefer to do it separately. So without further a due, let me start showing you what I've got.

I got myself a total of 15 items 🙈. Aren't you curious what or how I can get 15 items with just RM150? Here are the items,

1. Witch Pouch Shadow For Eyes, RM10

I got myself SD-3 Venus Blue. Witch Pouch eye shadow comes in 5 different shades. Royal Golden Beam, Pink Of Moon, Venus Blue, Spring Connection and Glam Brown. Not what I expected, I was expecting the colour to be more vibrant, but after using twice. The colour is very light, suitable for beginners to start with. But this is my own opinion, for people who does not like dark colours, this might not be the best option for you.

Pros

  • Suitable for beginners as the price is reasonable.
  • The box provides step by step instructions on which colour to be used first at which area of your eyes.
  • The colour gives a hint of glitter on your eyes which makes your eyes sparkle.
  • Small and convenient to bring around in your purse/bag.
  • Inclusive shadow tip for users.
  • There are 5 different colours to choose from.

Cons

  • The colour is very light compared to what they have shown in the picture.

Overall Rating: 3/5

2. Apieu Sugar Melting Tint, RM18

I got myself OR01 Orange Cupcake. Apieu melting tint comes in 4 different colours. Apple Sorbet, Rose Macaron, Peach Pie and Orange Cupcake. One of my new favourite lip tint, it is something different from the usual tint. The colour is vibrant and it helps to moisturize your lips.

Pros

  • The colour is very vibrant.
  • It does not dry up your lips, instead it helps to moisturize your lips in secs!
  • Price is fairly reasonable.
  • Long lasting as the colour would stay on for few hours.

Cons

  • Does not have the twisting function. This product have to keep clicking for the lip tint to come out.
  • After clicking it out, unable to keep it in. (be sure not to click too much)

Overall Rating: 4.5/5

3. Yet Clubpartra Waterproof Gel Pencil Liner, RM15

I got myself Real Black. It comes in either Real Black or Real Brown. My first time getting a gel liner which is in pencil type. I usually stick with the brush liner as it is simple and easy to use. But after trying it out a couple of time, it does have its own benefits compare to the brush, like you can slowly adjust at your eye areas without worrying you would mess it up. If it's Brush type, once the tip of the brush touches your skin, it will definitely leave a mark.

Pros

  • Very light compare to the previous brush liner I use.
  • Comes with a sharpener to sharpen your gel liner once it's bland.
  • Waterproof, which means say good bye to smudge eyeliner.
  • Can be used as eyeliner by blending it in right after applying.

Cons

  • If users doesn't close the cap properly, the creamy texture of the gel liner would fade and it will be rougher to draw.

Overall Rating: 3.5/5

4. Pure Smile Choosy Lip Pack, RM3.50

I got myself Fruit Mix. All 5 different flavour has it's on benefits in improving different purpose. It comes in Fruit Mix, Herb, Honey, Milk and Peach. The packaging itself it's cute. For people like me who often having dry and crack lips, I was always told by my mum to apply lip balm 24/7. Luckily after I try out Pure Smile Fruit Mix. It really does helps in improving my lips condition. Extra bonus is I got to take funny pictures of me with the funny big lip. 👄

Pros

  • It moisturizes your lips instantly.
  • Convenient to bring around for traveling as we often get cracked lips when we travel around cold country.
  • It contains collagen, vitamin e, hyaluronic acid and jojoba oil.

Cons

  • None for as far as I can think of.

Overall Rating: 3.5/5

5. Secret Key Sweet Glam Two Tone Glow, RM27

I got myself 03. Juicy Orange. There are 3 colours to choose from Lollipop Pink, Chic Red and Juicy Orange. I love using 2 tone lipstick, it gives my lips a gradient effect. What I like about this product is you can use it for both a daily light make up look or a heavy dinner make up look just by playing with the colour. For a simple daily look, I just have to swipe once over my lips and poof, it's done. As for the dinner look, I just have to swipe it across my lip for 2-3 times, there you have a brighter and more vibrant colour.

Pros

  • A simple single lipstick that can give you a two tone gradient effect.
  • The shades would eventually moisturize your lips.
  • Can have different results depends on how many coating you use on your lips.
  • The price is fairly reasonable for a two tone lipstick compare to other brand.
  • It colour its very long lasting.

Cons

  • Even though it's long lasting but the colour would fades to a lighter colour after 4/5 hours depending on each individual.

Overall Rating: 3.5/5

6. Yet Don't Worry Mask Sheet, RM2

I got myself 2 type this time, Oil Control and Wrinkles. 3 types to choose from which include Nutrition, Oil Control and Wrinkle. I am always on the hunt for masks from different brands, so I came across this and it's cheap! So I have to give it a try. To my surprise, this mask really helps to moisturize my face and gives me a better and brighter complexion the next day. So sometimes do not choose things based on the price but the quality. I try out the oil control mask and gave the wrinkles mask to let my mom and grandmother try, they really loved it too!

7. MisshaThe Style 4D Mascara, RM16

Got myself a new mascara because my previous one does not really suits me. After using a few times, I like how it give my lashes volume without any agglomeration (like a clump of black gelish liquid on your lashes). Most importantly it does not stick all your lashes together, it can helps to separate your lashes nicely. For a waterproof makeup, it's quite convenient as it is easy to remove with makeup remover.

Pros

  • Really affordable price for a mascara.
  • Does not clump your lashes.
  • It's waterproof, so it does not smudge easily.
  • After applying it gives off a natural look.

Cons

  • None

Overall Rating: 4.5/5

8. Pure SmileJuicy Point Pad, RM3.50

I got myself Lemon. For the Fruit selection there are five different fruit pack to choose from. Cucumber, Kiwi, Lemon, Orange and Strawberry. This point pad is like a mini mask that you can place it at a certain part of the area only. For example if you only want to apply it at some part of your face but do not want to waste the whole mask, this could be something you're looking for. Can be used on face, hand or even your leg. It contains 10 pieces per pack.

Pros

  • Easy to use and can apply at the specific areas.
  • Comes in a ziplock bag.
  • Comes in 10 pcs which you can use for a few times.

Cons

  • Does not smell like lemon, and it has an odour.

Overall Rating: 3/5

9. the SAEM Saemmul Real Tint, RM15

I got myself #1 Red. Few colours to choose from which includes Red, Orange and Pink. You must be thinking where is the real picture of the product. I apologize for the inconvenience, because while I was trying it out and bringing it along with me for about a week plus, some how I think it fell out from my bag somewhere. So.. 😭 I am so sorry, but I really love this product. It had a nice and sweet scent when you apply it on your lips. It lasts really long on my lips.

Pros

  • It has a sweet smell whenever you apply.
  • The colour is very vibrant.
  • Cute packaging with reasonable price.

Cons

  • For my lips, the result has a little uneven effect, my bottom lips looks more vibrant than the upper lips.

Overall Rating: 4/5

10. Tony MolyNew Delight Tony Tint, RM11

I got myself Cherry Pink. There are 3 colours to choose from which is Cherry Pink, Red and Orange Cha Cha. This would be another favourite of mine. It does have abit similarities with the previous tint in the sense of sweet smell and colour. What makes it special and different from others is you will not mess up the top of the lip tint. It comes with something that builds in inside the bottle which prevent excess liquid from the tint stick.

Pros

  • Vibrant colour that is long lasting.
  • Sweet scent when you apply on your lips.
  • Price is reasonable

Cons

  • For my lips, the result has a little uneven effect, my bottom lips looks more vibrant than the upper lips.

Overall Rating: 4.5/5

11. Secret KeyTattoo Eye Brow Tint, RM20

I got myself 02. Cafe Mocha. The available colours are Cafe Latte, Cafe Mocha, Choco Frappuccino and Espresso. Love how the tint works as I only needed to apply twice a week on my brow. It can last up to 4-5 days for me. The colour would get lighter each day as I use makeup remover daily. This could really help to save lots of time by spending lesser time in drawing your brows everyday.

Pros

  • Tint can last up to 4/5 days depending on each individual.
  • Easy to use and save time in drawing your brows daily.
  • The colour looks natural on me.

Cons

  • None

Althea Petal Velvet Powder | Review

I presume most of us owns a loose powder. Occasionally you might even have one in your purse or beg for touch up. I am also quite certain that if you are one of my frequent readers, you might already know Althea is famous for selling different brands of Korean beauty products. After the birth of Althea about 2 years back, they have finally decided to launch their very first product, Althea Petal Velvet Powder.

From the name itself, you might have a rough idea on how the packaging might looks like, what colour the packaging might be or even have a guess what is the main ingredient in it just by the name. Packaging? Hmm… most loose powder comes in either a big or small container, so it should be something similar as well. Unless it comes in a more creative way that you can spray your loose powder out of a spraying container. Haha gotcha! I am just kidding, let’s move on. Althea boxes are usually Pink, so most probably for their first ever product it will be pink as well. As for ingredients, most probably they have althea flower as one of their ingredients.

 

  • Tada! This is how the packaging really looks like.

Glad to be one of their pioneer to receive the product and use it. So why did they come out with Althea Petal Velvet Powder instead of any other cosmetics? In my own opinion, I think even though you’re a beginner or an expert in the makeup industry, your first impression and how you look is very important. You don’t want to turn up with flawless eyeliner, brow that is on point but your face looks oily and with make up that melts after a few hours. This is where Petal Velvet Powder comes in, this powder helps to sets your makeup as well as leaving your skin looking flawless. They infused Althea seeds oil to keep sebum production on bay without drying out your skin. This means a fresher, more radiant looking you!

  • What I received from Althea 💕 Their signature box along with tiny flowers and leaf, a slice of air dried orange and lime along with a cute plastic print out of @altheakorea Instagram account, how cute 🙈 Most importantly, Althea Petal Velvet Powder.

So do you know what the powder is made of? Powder + Pure Natural Ingredients = Non Chemical Product which is good for your skin 🌺 So WHY Petal Velvet Powder? Their Powder are made with micro-fine particles, which would make your pores visible 🎊 to invisible. (shrinks the pores) Let me summarize the benefits for you :

  • Makeup Setting & Long Wearing
  • Micro-fine Particles & Soft, Smooth Texture
  • Natural & Cruelty-Free Ingredients
  • Sebum Control & Pore Blurring

Do you know how does an Althea flower looks like?

  • Althea Flower

Why include Althea flower in the powder? You may be wondering why this flower apart from thousands of others, it is because the flower’s seeds consists full of antioxidants that can protect our human skin barrier from dehydration. What’s more? It invigorate the skin for a beautiful complexion.

How to apply?
Pick up product with a brush or puff provided and gently sweep onto skin

Translucent

RM 16

My opinion ~
I really love the packaging, even though it only have their logo on, but it looks classy. Sometimes with too much design on it will looks quite messy. It is small and light, suitable to bring around as it can fits straight into your bag or purse. The scent of it, it has a light Althea flower smell. The smell wasn’t too heavy which I think it’s perfect. After using my the powder on my face I can really see the difference, my pores was minimize. Lastly would be their puff, it is so puffy and soft.

As for what I think they can improve would be the size of the packaging. Instead of only having one size, why not come out with a bigger size as well which is suitable to put at home. It will be easier to apply compare with the smaller size puff. Next, I think they should come out with a skin colour puff. After using just once, my puff from white turns brown. =( It was cause by the layer of foundation on my face before applying the powder. I think if there is skin colour, user wouldn’t realize it and will feel much more happier when using.

Thank you Althea for the product. Really love it. 💕 My final rating for this product would be 4/5. 🌟 You can purchase it from the link below.
