review : Design R series body care range

I bought this Design R series body care range last year when my sister was working in Cosway. Cosway is a direct sale company. More info here: http://www.cosway.com.my/

This body range was having a really great promotion that time and I really wanted to try it and asked my sister to get for me.She asked her colleague's opinion and the person said it smelled good. I wanted to know if the fragrance last but she did not get me the answer .. XD

What did I buy?

  • R series deodorant
  • R series body spray
  • R series body powder
  • R series Eau De parfume
  • R series cream parfume

The products are actually have nothing special care except for their sweet and nice smell. There are just the same as the body care range you can find in the market.

The smell was really good and made me feel like a women. ( I am quite a boyish girl~ :P) However, the fragrance did not stay long on me. Neither the body spary, Eau De parfume nor the cream parfume. This caused me to spay them more and wasted a lot of the products and at last, you will be using them up very quickly.

The Eau De parfume and the cream parfume are very handy. You can just bring them anywhere you like since they fixed the pouch easily, especially for the cream parfume. As the fragrance did not last and the container of Eau De parfume is quite heavy(glass), I rarely travel with it but the cream parfume.

Pros :
  • nice and sweet smell
  • affordable price
  • some products are travel friendly

Cons :
  • only available at Cosway
  • fragrance does not last
  • promotion varied every month
  • no special concern on body
Will I repurchase them?

definitely NO!!! Not even single item.
Why shall I spend money on something with no special concern and having no long-lasting fragrance? I would rather spend the money on The Body Shop, L'occitane, Palmolive....

These are just my thoughts,. If you do like the smell and the packing alot, just try it. Who knows if the fragrance last on you?? :)

I forgot about the lotion from this series too. Thrown when I took the pictures and totally forgot about it... :P
The lotion was moisturised, and smell good. The only thing I hated a lot about it was the formula of it. As for me, my hands / body became very wet after applying the lotion. IT meant it did not absorb fast and caused me a lot of troubles. I will never ever buy any skincare/ cosmetics from Cosway anymore!!!

review: YSL make up workshop part 1

Thanks to Miu from plusizekitten, I managed to register as early bird to attend he YSL make up workshop tru emmagem(http://www.emmagem.com) last Friday.

My session was at 3pm and I had paid to emmagem before. Since it's a make up workshop, I did not wear heavy but very light make up to the event.clever,huh? haha

I was so lucky because I met with the people from emmagem .One of them is the editor,and the other,sorry, I did not ask what's the position she posed. :P

Back to the workshop!

The YSL international make up artist was getting ready while the models was cleaning her face

First when we reached, we were seated and were requested to clean our face with their new products: 3 in 1make up removal which is water based. It removed my very light make up well, but needed more times and cotton wool for heavier make up.

Then, we apply eye cream, sunblock and moisturiser before the make up demonstration started.I guessed they were waiting for majorities to reach and that caused the workshop delayed for about 30 min.

products on the middle of each table
Everything started from foundation/make up base, of course. The YSL International Make-up Artist., Mr. Patrick Havegheer, used the Top Secrets(make up base) on the model's face. His touch was really light as he loved natural look and thus, that would be our topic today! I am not giving much explanation on the products used and why was it used as you can easily find it online. sorry~

Rebecca was giving an introduction and Mr. Patrick was waiting to be introduced
After Top Secrets, he applied the Perfect Touch(foundaion) with very little potion. Mr. Patrick mentioned as the weather in Mlaysia is hot, it is the best not to apply heavy make up. The make up will not be cakey when it rains or when we sweat. I always applied heavy make up as the model in magazines I read. His words really gave impact to me and I wanted to make myself natural starting from now!!

Coming after foundation, was the concealer and followed with YSL star product -- Radiant Touch~~ Mr. Patick applied the concealer/highlight whatever you wanna call it, under the model's eyes, nose(T-zone), above upper lip, and smile lines! He said that a bright and light base is more important than the colours.Thus, he was more concerned on the light and bright foundation rather than the heavy colours on eyes,cheeks and lips. Then, set your foundation with loose powder or compact powder on your choice.

That's all with foundation demo,We needed to try it ourselves now!!

The make up artists were around to help you. They served fastly and friendly!

Eyes and lips reviews are comind soon.
