Lash Extensions Review

LASH EXTENSIONS, one of the most struggling decisions to be made.

Are they worth it? Any issue of cleanliness? How long does it last? Which provider would provide the best services?

Yes, these kind of questions really did pop up in my mind before I made an appointment for Lash Extensions.

Among all the lash extension providers, I have chosen Lash Lab Subang. 

According to the consultation from the beautician, you would need a fairly healthy amount of real eyelashes for the application of eyelash extensions. Hence, my extension is much thicker than others.

Prior to that, you would need to fill in your information then the beautician would take around 5 minutes to understand your needs and preference, such as your preference over the types of extensions, its curl and length.

Extension offers :-
1. Korean Lash Extensions - RM178
2. Japanese Lash Extensions - RM228
3. Sugar Lash Extensions - RM238
4. Nova Lash Extensions  - RM278
5. 3D Lash Extensions - RM298

For me, I have chosen Korean Lash Extensions, D curl, 14-11mm.



It looks like I have applied heavy makeup, like smokey eyes. However, it gets more natural after several days, which you would slowly get used to it.

To be honest, it does not feel really heavy on my eyelids, but if you were to create a more natural-looking extensions, you could request for Camellia Lash, as it is thinner and lighter in a way.

After you have chosen your treatment, you would be led into a relatively comfy treatment room by your beautician. The beautician would first clean your eyelids with warm water, then place a damp pad on your bottom lashes and followed by a gauze sticker on your top eyelid to find a perfect angle for the new lashes! She would then gently brush through the eyelash extension with a spiral brush just to keep it neat.

Overall, it took about 2 hours. Long enough, for you to have a nice rest.

Some of my friends and followers asked me, :"Does it hurt?"

For me, it does not! But some of my friends told me that it could sometimes be painful, during the session. I guess this depends on your beautician and its provider. Hence, you would really need to go through quite a number of reviews or feedback, either from friends or online.

According to the beautician, the extension would last about 30 days but more or less depends on your own eyelashes. Mine has lasted for more than 2 months (50% left.), so it kind of depends on how you take care of them as well.







Things to take note after having extension :
1. Do not rub your eyes
2. Use Water-based cleanser instead of Oil-based, as it would ruin the eyelashes and make it fall
3. Brush your eyelashes with spiral brush, on a daily basis

TADAAAA!! Once you have done your hassle-free extension, you could even go to work or outing without makeup, which would definitely speed up your prep time!

Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation Review

One of the best foundations I've used, would definitely be the Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation.



In the past, Estee Lauder did not offer an impressive amount of shades. But, they have now stepped up their game, launching different colors that suit different skin types and tone.

Despite there is online shopping available, I have gotten mine from one of the Estee Lauder stores. I would still recommend to directly buy or at least try the shade in the store. As you could request for assistance, for that you could tell them about your skin type (oily, dry, combination) and your preference over the foundation (yellowish or pinkish tone).

Normally they would help you try on 3 different shades on your jaws and you could decide which shade you would love to give it a try. My skin condition is combination skin type, and I personally favor pinkish foundation. Therefore, I have chosen the tone of 1N0.

Just by applying a thin layer, with a damp beauty blender, it smoothed out on my skin. ELDW gives full coverage foundation on face. It is lightweight and feels comfy on skin, but it definitely showed that you have applied makeup. Thus, it would not be suitable if you intend to create a skin-like natural looking makeup.

With ELDW, it has created a nice and dewy matte finished look for me. (scroll down for my finishing look! )

ELDW has definitely guaranteed that no touch-up is needed, which means you could still look flawless even under a hot sun or after exercised and swimming. It does not budge and stays put all day, neither does it smudge or come off on clothes which is a plus point for OL as most of the time, we would wear white top or dress.

For every bottle you purchase, it does not come with a pump (which was not available previously), but now they do (separate purchase needed).

On a side note, you REALLY need to make sure that you have removed the foundation and cleansed your skin properly to avoid pores clogged which might further lead to skin problems.


Immortelle Reset Oil-In-Serum Review

L'Occitane Malaysia has recently launched a new serum - Immortelle Reset Oil-In-Serum (RM 248)

Every bottle consists of a trio of powerful ingredients :-

1. Acmella Oleacera Extract 
2. Marjoram Extract
3. Immortelle Essential Oil

Acmella Oleacera Extract helps relax your facial muscles, for skin that looks rested.

Majoram Extract reawakens skin at a cellular level, resetting moisture from the inside out.

Immortelle Essential Oil could reactivate skin and boost skin radiance.



Give it a try for 28 days to witness the improvement on your skin! This Serum is suitable for all skin types.

This Oil-In-Serum has more than 3,000 micro suspended golden bubbles which could deliver a powerful dose of immortelle oil extracts that can be slowly released deep into the skin, which is 2 times more than the antioxidant in Vitamin E.

Upon application, without feeling greasy on face, instead its texture is super-light water-gel. Light massaging into your skin, thousands of suspended golden bubbles would be released which is easily absorbed and quick to act.

As I was previously preparing myself for an exam, for a couple of months, I was tensed up and stressed until I noticed my skin has lost its glow. It slowly became dull, but the Immortelle Reset just came in time.

It couples with a floral fragrance which makes every touch on your skin even more relaxing.

After trying for a week, I have felt the difference that it calmed and relaxed my skin. Having seen the effectiveness, I continued my daily skincare routine to see if it would have better results in a month's time.

Eventually, a satin smooth finish leaves an instant hydration without any greasiness or residue. In 28 days' time, my skin has definitely become smoother and plumped, while my skin texture looks more even, radiant and well moisturized!

This would definitely be one of my holy grail products, L'Occitane Immortelle Reset! (saw the tiny little bubbles in the bottle?)
