(Event) Ginn International Showcase

Hello lovelies, today's post is a little different from the usual skincare post that I write.

It is fun to note down that this is actually my first time attending a Malaysian International Jewelry Fair (MIJF) 2018. It took place in Kuala Lumpur Convention Center at Hall 1 on 5th August 2018.

Thanks Joanne and Ginn International for the invite!

The Ginn International August Showcase was a blast as the emcee of the day, Isabelle Lee, introduce the various brands and business partners fully endorsed by Ms Ginnie Lam (Founding President of Ginn International), Mr Nicolas Pang (Ginn Artistry President), and Mr Derrick Yong (Operations Director).

Emcee of the day, Ms. Isabelle Lee.

The Ginn International Showcase kicked off with 3 fashion & red-carpet Runway Shows in a single showcase by the very own Ginn Artistry Fashion Show with designer evening gowns by Glitter Venus & Ginn International sponsored jewelry.

These are the 12 most prominent Malaysian Beauty Queens and local top models.

Here's my lucky but blurred shot of three of the twelve Malaysian Beauty Queens/top models.

These 12 most prominent Malaysian Beauty Queens and local top models are appointed as Star Brand Influencers at this very showcase.

Professor John also exclaimed the next trending wave of the Korean entertainment scene and beauty  industry landscape, that will soon see a convergence of Asian Models, Entertainment Artists, Education Institutions & Pageant Promotion Platforms.

Next, the Top 6 Graduating Stewardesses and Steward from the Cabin Crew Academy KL (Subang Skypark) graced the runway with a Special Academy Uniform Parade with the popular theme song of Triumph in the Skies.

Aren't they charming! ^^

Before the finale, there are a few sharing sessions. First up is Ms. Mikasa Chong (JCI Malaysia) sharing about their campaign for the United Nation's Sustainable Development Goals (for all UN countries targeted for the year 2030). Ms Ginnie is the Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nation's Sustainable Development Goals. Next is Ms. Vicky Law (International Aroma Association) sharing on the "Art of Feminine Elegance" through aromatherapy. Lastly is Ginn's very own Mr. Derrick Yong (Operation Director) and Mr Nicolas Pang in sharing the progressive journey of Ms. Ginnie Lam in Malaysia ever since becoming the Coffee & Tea Lifestyle Ambassador, introducing the best Malaysian cafes in 2017.  

The finale showcase is what I enjoyed the most as its a rare occasion to see this in Malaysia! ^^
The runway was graced by Korean Senior Models' Association's Traditional Hanbok Elegance Showcase.

Here are the top 10 senior Korean models showcasing the finest designs, from uber traditional pieces to contemporary chic everyday pieces.

5 outfit here are stunning. The purple flower designs caught my heart! Which caught your eye? :)

More formal designs with a very sexy pink tube puffy dress there! ^^

Ms. Ginnie Lam was also part of the finale showcase, looking so sophisticated in  a specially designed fusion statement piece. It is created by the attending Korean Celebrity Tailors.

Love the simple color combinations with intricate designs on the cloth itself!

(Review) A Bouquet of Mamonde Creamy Tint Collection

Hello loves, this month has been a very blossoming month for me.
More like surrounded by flowers and less on the productive but I am contented side ^^

If you have been following my instagram, you'd have seen this beautiful bouquet with lippies inside!
Definitely a bouquet I'd love to receive. *hint hint to the hubby/bf*
Thank you Mamonde Malaysia team for the love! <3

I bet a lot of lippie lover would love to receive a bouquet like this! ^^

Have any of you use any of Mamonde's Creamy Tint Collection?
I recently have picked up the habit of layering their lippies inspired by their videos! ^^

Mamonde Creamy Tint Collection consists of the Creamy Tint Color Balm Light, Creamy Tint Color Balm Intense, & Creamy Tint Squeeze Lip.

As the name suggested, Balm Light (2.5g) is for those who are new to makeup or those who like really natural, enhanced lips look. There are 10 color choices. It is a 3-in-1 crayon type lip pencil with clear color and hydrating power of a lip balm.
Balm Intense (2.5g) have 25 intense colors for bold looking lips; its a 3-in-1 lip balm, lip tint & lip stick that gives intense color payoff and creamy velvety finish, suitable for dry lips user like me.
~
Squeeze Lip (9g) is an innovative squeezable tube type liquid lipstick that gives user high impact colors. There are 10 colors to choose from. It is unique because its UHD color pigments gives vivid color in a single touch and I love the Mamonde Rose Water Toner in it that helps smooth, plump and hydrate my dry lips. There are two finishing for this product. A little gives a velvety, matte texture while a full lip application gives you the shine without any stickiness.


~~~


In the bouquet I have a Balm Intense and 2 of their Squeeze Lip.

The yellow thing at the bouquet was actually a pen drive ^^

The Squeeze Lip cap is slightly different with the Balm Intense cap.

The Squeeze Lip seems a little intimidating to use at first but actually it is quite easy to use. ^^

BLee's Look:
I have created two looks below.
Just blending two colors without thinking and I love it! ^^
You can use it alone or layer to create different looks & personalities.

#1 On-the-Go Confidence
I think it'll be a suiting look after a tough week.
It looks especially awesome when I have really natural makeup and want to look more alive and confident ^^

Firstly, layer the Balm Intense in #21 (Red Soul).
I think it looks pretty demure and suit my skin tone.

Then I topped it off with a full lip of Squeeze Lip in #3 (Chic Red).
Chic Red immediately takes over the whole lip and gives a sheen like brick red color.
Definitely sexy for a night lip look. I'd go for a more gradient lips focusing at the centre more the next time for a sexier feel XD

#2 Coral Peachy Mood
Nice? I personally won't wear the top color alone as the brown hues will make me look more mature.
After layering, I love it <3

Firstly, layer the Balm Intense in #5 (Blooming Rose).
It is super pink, girly and bold!

Finish off with a full lip using Squeeze Lip in #10 (Retro Rose).
It is in this very brown-coral color that I usually avoid as it makes me look mature. At the same time its pretty to the eyes but less suiting for me I think. After layering, the whole color looks more coral-ly orange instead and that makes an interesting lip color for me as I seldom go for orange-based lippies. What do you think? ^^

Thoughts:
Packaging-wise, I do love both the Balm Intense and Squeeze Lips. They are wonderful to use alone or by layering. I personally think that by layering Balm Intense as the base, it does help extend the lip color as it has a better tinting power.

From their site, both the Balm Intense and Squeeze Lips can create both full and gradient lips look.

Scent-wise, Balm Intense do not have much of a scent while the Squeeze Lip has a welcoming refreshing rose scent as Mamonde Rose Water Toner is used.


When I layer them on top of each other, my lips don't feel heavy, instead I feel comfortable and cooling. The Squeeze Lip instantly hydrates and cool the lips upon application.
Overall, the hydrating and lasting power isn't veryyy long but re-application is a breeze.
I highly recommend the Squeeze Lip to any rose scent lover! ^^

~~~

This is a collab between Althea & Get It Beauty!
By the time I publish this post, I have been using it for a month already! ^^

Variants:
Rose (Refining) & Green Tea (Purifying)

Althea 10-second Cleansing Recipe:
A.M- Rose gently smooths away roughness & gives the skin a radiant glow after a night of sleep. Also makes good base prior to applying makeup.
P.M- Green tea calms down and purifies sensitive skin.

They look so pretty and is definitely easy to use. Using a little or a lot works equally effective for me. What about you?

This is the natural discoloration that will occur but the effectiveness stays the same! ^^
Smell also the same ^^



~~~


Real Fresh Skin Detoxer (Rose)

Contains real premium May rose petals handpicked once a year in France.
Natural discoloration will not affect its effectiveness, and is safe to use.

It retails at RM43 for 150ml HERE.
Or you can get the Real Fresh Skin Detoxer Set at RM77 for 300ml HERE.

Packaging:
It is really relaxing to just look at the little rose petals.

I like that at the back we can conveniently note down our Opening Date to make sure that we finish it in its freshest condition.

Claims:
Premium May Rose helps balance out the skin's pH (5x more effectively than normal rose). It also moisturizes and gives the skin a rosy radiant glow with rich mineral. The real rose petals help to purify and improve blood circulation. Thus a more revitalized, supple & bright skin achieved.

How-to:
Squeeze out a generous amount and apply a relatively thick layer onto dry skin. Leave it on for 10 seconds, then add a little water and massage in circular motions with petal bubbles. Rinse it off after.

How I Use:
(As a Cleanser Step)
Wet face. Squeeze out a 10-cents or 20-cents amount and lather on palm before applying it all over my face. Rinse it off after.


Thoughts:
I like the scent of the rose that smells more of a powdery rose scent. It is of a runny gel texture upon dispensing however if applied in a thick mask layer, it does not drip. I tried both the thick 10-secs mask application and thin 10-secs cleanser application, both works equally effective.





My skin is smooth and slightly brighter. However, the more amount of product used will make more bubbles when adding water in, thus more dried and tighter my face feels. I would recommend you trying my method of usage for easier cleansing. ^^ When cleansing, I do not feel any sign of exfoliation. I personally prefer the Green Tea variant more, read on! ^^

Rating:
3/5
(coz its less moisturizing for me but I like the scent!)

Real Fresh Skin Detoxer (Green Tea)

Young Green Tea Leaves are from pristine Jeju island plantations.
Natural discoloration will not affect its effectiveness, and is safe to use.

It retails at RM43 for 150ml HERE.
Or you can get the Real Fresh Skin Detoxer Set at RM77 for 300ml HERE

Packaging:
It is really relaxing to just look at the green tea leaves with granules.

I like that at the back we can conveniently note down our Opening Date to make sure that we finish it in its freshest condition.
Claims:
Young Green Tea Leaves relieves sensitive skin and purifies the skin to achieve a healthy boost in just 10 seconds. It contains an abundance of Catechin (5x more Vitamin C than lemon) which helps protect the skin from UV damage. Jeju Green Tea powder relieves the stressed skin fast by controlling the sebum & purifying the dust on skin.

How-to:
Squeeze out a generous amount and apply a relatively thick layer onto dry skin. Leave it on for 10 seconds, then add a little water and massage in circular motions with petal bubbles. Rinse it off after.

How I Use:
(A Cleanser Step)
Wet face. Squeeze out a 10-cents or 20-cents amount and lather on palm before applying it all over my face. Rinse it off after.


Thoughts:
like the refreshing scent that smells similar to green tea. It is of the same runny gel texture upon dispensing however if applied in a thick mask layer, it does not drip. I tried both the thick 10-secs mask application and thin 10-secs cleanser application, both works equally effective.





My usual acne scars with dead skin is exfoliated gently each time leaving me with smooth, soft, supple and slightly brightened appearance. However, the more amount of product used will make more bubbles when adding water in, thus more dried and tighter my face feels. I would recommend you trying my method of usage for easier cleansing. ^^ I personally prefer the Green Tea variant more than the Rose variant. Which caught your heart? :)

(Review) Maintain Healthy Lips with Mentholatum Lip Pure


Hello loves.
Last month I found an affordable lip balm I receive in my mail box.
Before I go more into it, how frequent do you use your lip balm?
My baby sis uses it so fast as if she is eating them (JKJK)

She cares for her lips a lot and you'll be surprised at the amount of lip balms she buys from just a trip when she only have one lip balm left.
Me on the other hand only use it when I have severe chappy lips and always wear it before I wear any lipstick, lip stain or whatever on my lips for events.
My lips are never smooth after a 5 mins sip of water so I definitely do envy people with wonderful perfect pout ^^
