[REVIEW] Kiss Me Heavy Rotation Shiny Jewel Eyeliner in #03 Pink White

Hi guys! Another make-up review from me this time hehehe :D
 
Are you excitedddd as I am? Hahaha! I really love experimenting and trying out new products. It's like revealing mysteries and secrets of a specific product lollll.  So, today I'll be reviewing on Kiss Me Heavy Rotation Shiny Jewel Eyeliner in #03 Pink White.
 

I personally really do have high expectation towards Kiss Me products since I've used most of their eye makeup products before (mascara, eyeliner and also false lashes) and I have to admit it's quality and aftereffect amazed me that it became a staple of my makeup routine. Kiss Me is also originated from Japan but you can check out their products in selected SaSa and Watsons Store in Malaysia!


There's three different types of eyeliners from Kiss Me's Shiny Jewel Eyeliner range. These eyeliners contains glitters that adds sparkle to one's eyes upon application. Shiny Black (#01) and Shiny Brown (#02) has a bold color to create an impactful eyes whereas the Shiny Pink White (#03) is suitable to achieve the sweet and innocent look. Did I mention that I'll be reviewing the Shiny Pink White eyeliner? Hehehehe.


So this is how the packaging of the Kiss Me Heavy Rotation Shiny Jewel Eyeliner in Pink White looks like. This eyeliner is supposed to be applied on the lower eyelid are for a fuller-looking eye bags hence creating a sweet and young look. Think of 'aegyo-sal' (eye bags in Korean) and how Korean girls love to make their eye bags super visible haha. This is such my MUST HAVE item since I really cannot live without emphasizing my aegyo-sal. I am born with tiny eyes and that's why aegyo-sal is vital to me as it makes my eyes appear larger and 3D-ish. I know it sounds weird, AHAHA but I literally mean it.



Okay, jom, let's start our review time!



I opened the bottle and was surprised to find out that it's brush is super duper ultra thin. Good enough since it's much easier to apply using a thin brush.



And then I swipe a stroke of the Shiny Pink White on my hand twice.



Kiss Me Heavy Rotation Shiny Jewel Eyeliners contains three types of beauty essences which are collagen, sodium hyaluronate and chamomile extract. The glitters aren't really visible in the picture above as it was taken under room lighting. But once smeared while freshly applied, trails of glitters can be really obvious. And now, it's hands-on experiment time! :D



Can see any difference in both eyes a not? I think that the Shiny Pink White eyeliner isn't really obvious on my eyelids since I have quite fair skin. And instead of drawing a line under my eyes, I decided to blend the eyeliner for a more subtle effect. What I did was I draw a stroke under my eyes, wait for about two seconds and lightly dab the eyeliner so it blends in well to my aegyo-sal. I also used it as an eye shadow for a shimmering effect!



So the left eye is without the Shiny Pink White eyeliner whereas the right eye is with the eyeliner. If you observe closely, trails of sheer glitters can be seen on my upper eyelids and my aegyo-sal is even more brighter compared to my left eye. I personally prefer to blend the eyeliner as it looks even more natural without being dramatic. I also used it to apply on the inner corner of my eyes to make my eyes look more 'awake' hehehe.


And next, I applied the eyeliner on both eyes in the close-up picture above. So once the eyeliner is completely dry after application, it feels as if there's a layer of invisible white shimmer eyeliner which stays intact on your eyes securely. This film type eyeliner is actually pretty good as it's resistant towards tears, sweat, sebum, and rubbing. I've tried to rub the eyeliner once it dries out but the eyeliner stayed adhere to my eyes. Now I'm not afraid of ruining my eye makeup hahahaha!! And it's super hassle-free to remove this eyeliner, all you need is lukewarm water to do the trick.



Try applying eye primer on your upper and lower eyelids before drawing the Shiny Pink White eyeliner on for a longer-staying and visible effect. Apply the eyeliner several times and dab it lightly to achieve a brighter and more striking results to make your aegyo-sal even more outstanding :D

The key is to not overdo your makeup as aegyo-sal are supposed to be naturally emphasized and not dramatically done as what we're aiming for it the sweet and innocent look. I also realized that I can also use this Shiny Pink White eyeliner to highlight my facial features such as my nose bridge and cheeks since the sparkles are so natural yet such beautiful finishing!

Kiss Me Heavy Rotation Shiny Jewel Eyeliners are retailed at RM 49.90 and is available in selected SaSa and Watsons Store. Do check out Kiss Me Malaysia's Facebook Page for further information and latest updates on their products!

And the fun doesn't stop there, I'll be doing a giveaway on Sally Hansen's products so make sure you read word by word till the very end okay? Hehehe!



With all these easily-bought-over-the-counter Sally Hansen products, anyone can easily clean, correct, and care for their nails at home! Skip the hassle of booking an appointment or purposely driving out to your nearest nail center when you can be your own manicurist :D

I'd like to give a huge shoutout and deep appreciation to Sally Hansen Malaysia and also MANOAH Consulting for the entire set of Sally Hansen products you see above! Super ecstatic when I received them cuz I can't wait to try them out as I know Sally Hansen is really well-known for their excellence in quality.


Let's take a closer look on what Sally Hansen products you need to achieve a salon-perfect nails at home!

Sally Hansen's Insta-Dri Anti Chip Top Coat (left) is a quick dry, chip-resistant, shiny and thick top coat. It contains acrylic polymer complex that hardens and dries nail color in seconds. It's double UV filter also helps protect nail color from chipping or breaking. Whereas the Instant Cuticle Remover (right) is an advanced cuticle treatment and callus-busting gel.

Intensely moisturizing, Sally Hansen's Vitamin E Nail & Cuticle Oil (left) contains apricot kernel, aloe and Vitamin E that softens cuticle, improves skin condition and cares dry and brittle nails. On the right is Sally Hansen's most basic and integral must-have item to achieve healthy nails; the Hard As Nails. Also known as nail clinic in a bottle, this nail hardener effectively helps in prevent chipping, splitting and cracking of nails. Made of unique film-formers, plasticizers and resins to strengthen, adhere, extra gloss for the nails. 

 

Above are the colours I've chose from Sally Hansen's Fuzzy Coat and Triple Shine range. I guess I am pretty into shades of blue and purple these days. Hahaha!

Alright, you guys ready for this simple and quick tutorial on How to Achieve a Salon-Perfect Manicure? :D


It is always important to remove long-dued nail polishes before applying a brand new layer of any kind of nail care. Long-dued nail polishes are bad for our nails because it tends to yellow our nails, leaving them brittle and easy to break. So I removed my overdue nail polishes with Sally Hansen's Moisturizing Nail Polish Remover. I love how fragrant this nail polish remover is!! It smells a little like passion fruit and it doesn't take much to remove my overdue nail polishes. Look how clean my nails became in just several swipe!



TADAA~~ Nice lehh?! So after removing your overdued nail polish, the second step is to remove dead skin and cuticles which are clumped on the surface of our nails.



Basically this is the sure must-have step even when you're doing your manicures at nail salon. It's pretty easy to remove cuticles using Sally Hansen's Instant Cuticle Remover. Open the cap and squeeze some of the cuticle remover gel onto nails. Leave it for about 15 seconds and gently push back using a pusher. Wash away excess immediately and thoroughly with warm, soapy water. It can also be used to remove calluses too. For calluses usage, leave gel for maximum one minute and remove it using the steps above.



Some people might think that removing cuticles are unnecessary, but do you know that if you do not remove your calluses and cuticles, the residue built will result in brittle, unhealthy-looking nails?

The third step before applying ANY nail colour is to apply the base coat first.



I am using Sally Hansen's Hard As Nails nail hardener for my base coat. I love how multi-functional Hard As Nails is, not only does it makes my nail colour lasts longer, it prevents my nail from turning yellowish and fragile. All the magical effects in one bottle!



This is how my nails look like after applying the three basic steps; treatment, strength, and growth.



 

For those who love nude nails, the three steps above is already enough to make your nails look super sexy with going overboard. Simple yet clean and healthy nails ❤️


So after the three basic steps, I'm gonna add some colours into my nails. I've opted for the Sally Hansen Triple Shine #280 Dive In. The colour is in a opaque yet beautiful turquoise shade.


I applied two layers of Sally Hansen Triple Shine #280 and it's enough for me since it's texture is rich and thick. 


The Triple Shine range is the newest colorful range brought to you by Sally Hansen. Inspired fresh from the runway, the Triple Shine range features 12 shine pop colours that caters women's need in search of versatile and long-lasting nail polishes. Made of the ultimate shield complex, the Triple Shine Nail Polishes consists of bio-sourced ingredients (such as natural crushed pearl, Vitamin B5, Vitamin E and Sea Kelp), vinyl silicone and patented gloss-tech brush.

Being pro-Vitamin B5 and Vitamin E, Sally Hansen Triple Shine nail polishes are your daily defense for your nails from water, detergent and daily wear. Also, the natural crushed pearl, sea kelp extract and vinyl silicone has the capability to deliver high impact, glossy colour with natural irisdescence. Plus, Sally Hansen's Patented Gloss-Tech brush is critical to perfectly thin coats that creates the ultimate smooth surface the reflect the light for maximum shine.


After the nail color is completely dry (do make sure each and every layers are completely dry before applying on the next one!), never forget to apply the top coat.


I'm using Sally Hansen's Insta-Dri Anti Chip Top Coat. When they mean instant, they really mean it! This top coat dries in within 15 to 30 seconds and it carries a dual function of preventing our nail color to chip easily too.


After applying top coat, the final step is for the extra nourishment and protection for our nails.


I'm using Sally Hansen Vitamin E Nail & Cuticle Oil to nourish my nails. As the name suggests, since it's oil-based it is best to apply it after manicure OR remove it before applying manicure. This is because the nail lacquer will not be able to adhere on the oil treatment surface. So I apply my nail oil treatment right after my manicure :)


And after completing all six steps above, TADAA! How do you like nails now? Would you like to 'Dive In' with me? *wink* AHAHA!

Lens Shopping Experience with MrLens Malaysia

 Any lovelies here a regular user of cosmetic contact lenses or even glasses/spectacles? I came across this simple yet efficient online web portal that sells contact lenses and glasses in every form and various brands. Some of you might heard of this web portal before, it's known as MrLens.

 

Before going further into my personal contact lenses shopping experience with MrLens Malaysia, let me stress out why I opt for online shopping rather than going in-stores instead. The thing with optician stores that makes me don't really like shopping with them is because of the limited brands they have in stores. Only mainstream contact lenses or premium contact lenses are available. The second thing that drives me away from purchasing with optician stores is the price. Yes, it's true that some stores might offer discounts, promotions and such but, usually, those discounts don't make much of a huge difference compared to it's original price and it's only a temporary sale sort of thing. Did I mention how expensive the retail price of contact lenses is? I admit I can be a little fussy about the price sometimes lol (#BudgetBarbie) but why would I want to pay extra when I can get the exact same pair of contact lenses for a lower price? You get me, girls? 

And this is where MrLens Malaysia comes in.


 MrLens offers literally an array of brands (browsing through their colored lenses tab never fails to entice me!) from Freshkon, Maxim, and even Playboy lenses. Above is a screenshot of MrLens Malaysia website and they pretty much sell every types of lenses and glasses to fulfill everyone's satisfaction.


It's actually pretty easy to navigate around in MrLens Malaysia's website since it's properly organize and each item is categorized, and you can just click and search for the specific item you're looking for. Or if you're in the mood of trying something new (like I always do), you can just click in any of the tabs and slowly browse through their entire collection of your preferred type of lenses. From daily disposable, two-weeks disposable, monthly disposable, three-months disposable and so on to suit your preference. 

I was given this golden opportunity by The Butterfly Project Malaysia; a RM248 voucher to shop with MrLens Malaysia! *screams out loud and pops confetti* A string of appreciation and truckloads of love to The Butterfly Project Malaysia for the wonderful chance to shop with MrLens Malaysia! Without any longer, I scrutinize through MrLens Malaysia website ecstatically while adding my stuffs into my shopping cart. Hehehehe.


 Surprisingly, checking out was pretty simple and the steps are pretty direct. There wasn't much of a hassle I had to go through and I managed to check out my order within 10 minutes. The website will also prompt us new users to sign up for verification and order confirmation purposes and include the sign up, the entire check out was frankly less than 10 minutes. Not only that, you get to save 5% off your cart and all you have to do is just 'Like' MrLens in Facebook. And this is why I love online shopping, especially with MrLens :D

So I ordered ColourVue Big Eyes Dolly Black and ColourVue Glamour Violet but the prescription and colors were subject to availability under this voucher coupon so I end up receiving a ColourVue Party Green and ColourVue Starburst Green instead. I was tad disappointed at first, but I decided to look at a new angle - I've never worn green contacts before, so why not?



The parcel came in immediately the next day I check out my cart. OH-EMM-GEE. I was surprised to see the postman in front of my office and told me I had a parcel. Wondering who and where it might been from, I wasn't expecting MrLens Malaysia to be this fast and efficient. I am honestly in awe.  Thank you MrLens Malaysia for the fast delivery and amazing services! Double thumbs up from me! :D


Do I even need to stress out that all of my items were in a Ziploc bag? My order came in with a free contact lens case and also such a sweet treat of Chupa Chups lollipop from MrLens Malaysia! Awww, thank you! <3


The box of my cosmetic contact lenses was stained a little, but the product inside was safe and it's seal isn't open yet so I knew my contacts are still in good condition.



Along with the sweet treat and the free lens case, in the parcel was also a brochure on MrLens Malaysia's latest and hottest deals! I am attracted to purchase either the Freshkon lenses or maybe some other non-mainstream colored contacts in their website hahaha!


 Let's take a closer look at my contact lenses! So the one I opened first was the ColourVue Party Green lenses:-



The contacts are super soft and really comfortable to wear. It doesn't produce any itch, tears, and redness upon wearing and it's outer black ring blends beautifully to make my eyes appear bigger. The colour of my Party Green lenses look pretty bright too, doesn't it? But when I wore it, the color sort of darken down a little so the green wasn't much obvious and it's perfect to my liking. Still, when I'm wearing the contacts for several hours and when my lenses gets dry a little, the green colour sort of pops out and become so vibrant. Not really used to having vibrant-colored eyes, so yeah hahaha.


Nothing much, just me and my selfies. HAHA! My eyes look quite huge, don't they? *giggles*


Overall, I am really satisfied with my first every shopping experience with MrLens Malaysia. The main key points that makes me enjoy my shopping experience is that I love how MrLens update my about my order status via email and also how quick and efficient the delivery is. With such reasonable prices, amazing services, and array of products to choose from, how can one say 'no' to MrLens Malaysia?


Thank you MrLens Malaysia for the great effort and also Butterfly Project Malaysia for the wonderful experience!
