How’s your day today? Hope everything is great at your end.

Let’s have a closer look of this Flat Top Foundation Brush. Honestly, I cant have enough number of make-up brush. Sturdy cosmetics brushes are the key tool in applying your makeup. If you apply to much you will look like a clown and if you apply to little you will look pale and sickly. I personally feel that in order to have that flawless look, the correct application brush makes all the difference in the world!

FYI, this FLAT TOP Foundation Brush by Colours Cosmetic is a synthetic brush. Before I go further, let me share with you the difference between natural brushes and synthetic brushes.

Natural Brushes are made from animal hair. The bristles are usually goat hair, pony hair, badger, squirrel, etc. Each type of hair comes in various quality ranges. Natural are usually hand-shaped and glued. They range from being silky soft to rough and scratchy. This just depends on the quality of the bristles. Natural brushes do have a tendency to shed somewhat, depending upon the quality. No judging here, but I would personally support synthetic brush over natural brush due to my support towards animal friendly products.

On the other hand, synthetic Brushes are made using synthetic materials. These also range from cheap and rough-feeling to super nice, soft and silky bristles. Synthetic brushes do not have a tendency to shed, since they are synthetic, the bristles tend to melt into the ferrule, and "stick" together better. Which is a great plus point for this brush. Since it is 100% cruelty free product. If you are a Muslim like me, you don’t even have to worry what type of “fur” they are using as it is synthetic bristle. Basically, the choice is yours whether you like to use natural brushes or synthetic brushes.

There are several brushes out there in the market place and it can be confusing as to which one is right for you. Some brushes are very important for ease of application. Others are out there just to have you buy yet another brush to add to your collection and in the end you find yourself saying "Why did I buy this one?" I recommend that you keep your brushes separate from different minerals, example-foundation brush only used for your foundation minerals, veil brush only for your veil, bronzer brush only for bronzers, etc. This way you never have the wrong mineral on your brush, example-what if you are going to apply your foundation and you have blush on the brush now you have blush all over your face and who wants that????

I like how cute this Flat top brush is, not too big and not too long so can easily slot into my travel make up bag. Great thanks to its palm-size feature. The glossy wood handle make the brush look classy too? It reminds me of sigma brushes. For RM55 a piece this is totally worth way more than the cost. There are so many brushes out there which cost a fortune if you want top notch quality brushes. TRUST me on this.

If you have only few makeup tools in your kit, make sure this FLAT TOP Foundation Brush is one of them. They do much more than just look cute on your vanity! Guess what? Today is your lucky day! Thanks to Colours Cosmetic, each one of you will be able to enjoy 15% off, no matter how many times/pieces you or your friends or your mum or your aunty or your neighbour purchases.

GLAMGLOW Before and After REVIEW


20140921_111808

olla everyone!

This time around, I am back with a very popular product review. Non other than GLAMGLOW. I personally found that the name explain the product very specifically. If you love roaming around the internet to satisfy your lust over beauty products, then GLAMGLOW would be a very familiar name to you. This awesome product is currently raved by beauty bloggers, vloggers as well as celebrities..

Currently there are 5 different range offered by GLAMGLOW to cater all of your skin need and concern. Ranging from SUPERMUD™ CLEARING TREATMENT, YOUTHMUD™ TINGLEXFOLIATE, THIRSTYMUD™ HYDRATING TREATMENT, BRIGHTMUD™ EYE TREATMENT and their latest baby the POWERMUD™ DUALCLEANSE.

As for today, I am going to share with you about my experience using the YOUTHMUD™ TINGLEXFOLIATE and THIRSTYMUD™ HYDRATING TREATMENT. Before I start sharing about my experience, maybe I share more about the history of this award winning product. Yesss… check out how many awards this one of a kind mask received. Impressing huh?

GLAMGLOW® was founded in 2010 by Glenn & Shannon Dellimore. It all started when they are just chilling at home and one of their actor friends were sharing that he could not find a product that made his skin instantly camera ready, instantly reducing pores, instantly dealing with sun damage, instantly dealing with fine lines, instantly producing a noticeable glow that would last for days.

This became a topic of conversation with Glenn & Shannon Dellimore and the other three actors at the house. To cut the story shot, Glenn & Shannon Dellimore came out with this “magic mud” after doing lots of testing and formulation. Who know with the sincere intention to helping a friend the product became a hit and now almost all beauty lovers including celebrities who have access to almost all the products under the sun, swear by its effectiveness.

Great thanks to The Butterfly Project, Luxasia and Sephora Malaysia for giving me the opportunity to try out this product for review. I am over the moon and sun, as I am actually very interested to have a close encounter with this magic mud. Last month, I was invited to join the Product sharing session for Thirsty Mud at Sephora Sunway Piramid. Just incase you wanna check out about what happening during the event, you may do so by clicking the video footage that I did below.

It was such a fun and informative session, great thanks for extending the invite.
