Review: Modbox (December 2012)

February 26, 2013

Hey, loves!
You may be thinking why am I reviewing this so late? Well I can say there were a lot of things going on in the past few months and I totally forgot to get this box from Joanna! I used her address for delivery because I was worried I wouldn't be around when this was being shipped out. But hey, better late than never? :)

Okay let's go!

I was really excited for this because this would be my first ever beauty box! I won it from Joanna's blog contest. She did a giveaway on Modbox. Thanks babe! :) Don't you just love the rush of ripping of the parcel, opening the box and tadaaaaaaaa beauty products are there waiting for you to try 'em out! December's box is actually Modbox first ever box! :)

 I like the colour theme; purple. Lovely colour!

Since it was December, the month of Christmas and holidays, lovely Christmas elements decorated the box. The mini santa hat is so cute! Very nice :) I felt like it was a Christmas present!

This definitely puts a smile on my face. A personal welcome card, hand-written by the team. Thank you Modbox for the warm welcome :)

These are the first things I see when I open the box; a product guide, Juice Beauty RM20 Cash Voucher, RM100 Himalaya AyurSlim voucher worth RM118.

There are 6 items in the box; 2 hair care products, 2 skin care products, and 2 makeup products.
Let's see what they're all about!

Diamond The Prestige BB Cream by Skin79 (RM33.90/15g)
-Get that great dewy look with a slight diamond shimmer finish. This triple-function BB cream gives you medium to full coverage, complete with UV protection, whitening, and moisturising effects.

Honey & Cream Body Wash by Himalaya (RM22.90/400ml)
-Bring out that soft and supple skin. This herbal formulation, with the nourishment of cream and honey, helps to rejuvenate, moisturise and soothe skin. 

Anti Hair Fall Shampoo by Himalaya (RM24.90/400ml)
-Go on a journey of healthier hair with this breakthrough formula, free from parabens, silicone, and SLES. This shampoo nourishes roots & strengthens weakened hair to reduce hair fall due to breakage.

Glossy Kiss by LuView (RM36.90/3g x 2)
-Dazzle up those lips with this dual colour lip gloss! Whether it's sweet pink or rosy pink, this easy-to-glide lip gloss with moisture-boosting vitamin E is bound to deliver the perfect shine.

Green Apple Peel (Sensitive) by Juice Beauty (RM195/50ml)
-Bask in the luxury of a brighter, glowing complexion with this best-selling, patented at-home peel. It exfoliates and refines to even out skin tone, leaving your skin feeling completely soft and silky.

Nutrient Moisturizer by Juice Beauty (RM185/50ml)
-A night-time moisturiser that just works. This nutrient-rich formula hydrates and replenishes to keep your skin well-nourished and richly moisturised without leaving you feeling greasy.

I've spoken to other beauty box fans and read that many claimed Modbox is by far the cheapest beauty box in Malaysia. I think that lately Malaysians are spoilt for choice when it comes to beauty box, ya? I feel that if you're the type that loves to try out new products but don't want to buy in the original size, then beauty box is for you. It gives you just the right amount of sample to see if the products work well with you.

Only RM19 per month!! However, the monthly subscription only accepts credit cards which is a downer for me as I don't own one. But for the 3, 6, and 12-month subscription accepts debit card! So yay :)

I'm satisfied and happy with the products so far. I've always wanted to try Juice Beauty last time but as you can tell, the price is expensive, but thanks to Modbox, I finally get the chance to try it out. The LuView's lipgloss was in full size, so that's a plus point! I've yet to try these products and will do a review for each, soon :)

Product satisfaction: 4/5
Packaging: 4/5
Price: $
Will I resubscribe? YES!

1/5: poor
2/5: fair
3/5: average
4/5: good
5/5: excellent
$: budget
$$: mid-range
$$$: splurge

Amanda Imani, New Face of ZA & Launch of Spring/Summer 2013 Collection

February 16, 2013

Assalamualaikum and hello everyone!

On 23rd January 2013, ZA had officially launched the brand's new ambassador, Miss Amanda Imani, and ZA's Spring/Summer 2013 makeup collection. Thank you Chan Tsi Ying from Shiseido for inviting me to witness these two important events of the brand :)

Before the official launch started, a number of bloggers were given the opportunity to have a sit-down session with Amanda Imani regarding this amazing news that has sparkled her career.

Amanda Imani is a 21 year-old multi-heritage singer-songwriter, recording artist and an entrepenuer. She graduated from Upper Iowa University in Psycholog&Communications. Amanda's journey as a rising star started off in 2008 when she first performed for a Public Bank event, Show Time.

Following her debut, she was nominated for various awards in 2012 including the Best Local English Album award during AIM17! Her singing career blossomed to fame when she won awards such as the Top 3 Selangor Young Talent Award in 2011, Best Young Talent by World Association of Festivals & Artists(WAFA), Best Original Song award - "Selamilah Cinta" during the 20th International Music Festival Discovery in Bulgaria, and The Best Vocal Award for New Female Artiste during APM 2011.

In 2012,  Amanda paired up with Malique (one of Malaysia's famous rapper), for her single "Cemburu". She also launched her own branding label as the highlight of that year. Amanda just finished her latest English single, 'Like A Boss' that was written and created by her.

Having been a fond user of ZA products, Amanda Imani has been using ZA since she was 17.

"ZA has always  been one of those products that I would always go for because it’s reasonably priced but very good quality. I started using their makeup first and I really like it. ZA’s makeup is very light and not over the top. Im a very simple girl when it comes to dressing up and getting ready so I like something that is easy to put on. ZA has always been the product that I throw into my makeup bag because it’s amazing for people on the go. ZA products are easy and convenient to use and you get a whole range of different colours and textures to work with. It suits my skin type as well," says Amanda Imani.

The rising trend of fair and bright skin, Amanda is the ideal choice to represent ZA's concept, which is young and vibrant beauty.

"Amanda is one of the freshest faces in the entertainment industry and we think she really captures the identity of the brand. Her overall fun, upbeat vibe and down-to-earth personality are very admirable and relatable to most of our consumers these days," says Jane Lee, General Manager of ZA Malaysia. 

"Amanda's fun, bubbly and positive attitude is very ZA. The fact that she loves makeup and skincare as much as her music and that she enjoys sharing her experiences on social media can be very inspiring to people," says Chery Wong, Deputy General Manager of Advertising & Publis Relations.

Im glad I got the chance to talk to her, because she is really friendly, humble and down-to-earth person :)

Cozy place for an interview session.

Besides introducing Amanda Imani as the new ambassador of ZA Malaysia, ZA launched its Spring/Summer 2013 collection too. Let's see what they've got first and we'll get into details later! :)

NOW..let's get into details of ZA's Spring/Summer 2013 Collection! If you've always been a fan of ZA, you gotta add this to your collection, and if you've never used ZA before, I hope this post will make your move to give it a go! hehe.

Here we go!

Killer Volume Mascara (RM34.90)

The secret to this mascara lies in its one-of-a-kind brush that is able to hold up more mascara liquid, thus coating individual lashes evenly. The enhanced formula contains Hollow Air-Fiber that coats individual lashes, giving a darker appearance. It's formulated with Volume-Styling wax and Curl-Keep polymar oil to curl and hold lashes all day long. Eyes will look much bigger and more defined!

Eyes Groovy (RM39.90)

07 Pinkish Brown/08 Clean Gray/09 Wine Red

Adding more shades to the Eyes Groovy collection, these four-colour eye pallette come in shades of neutrals and pinks to complement the season. These colours are suitable for both day and night, and everyday look. It contains Brilliant Powder Complex which gives eyes a stunning glow, Skin Fit formula for easy application, and Vitamin E to nourish eyelids and is dermatologist-tested.

Lip Drops (RM18.90)

11 Sweet Sweet/12 The Pink/13 Crystal

ZA is expanding is Lip Drops collection with sheer shades! It promises to give shiny, dewy and plump lips without any sticky feeling. The Drop Seal formula and Collage gives shine and moisture. The sweet aroma if Lip Drop is a mixture of orange, mixed fruits and flowers! Mmmmhh...sweet kisses, perhaps? :)

Perfect Fit Two-Way Foundation (RM36.90-refill, RM 14.00-case)

This gives you the most natural finish. It is lightweight, yet offers high coverage. It uses Micro-Fine Powder to correct uneven skin tone and give radiance to dull skin. The Poreles Powder formula fills in uneven pores for a polished finish. Rich in Water-holding Collagen, Vitamin E and Hyaluronic Acid, this enhanced product retains moisture and nourishes skin!
It's Amanda's favourite!

"I enjoy doing my own makeup so that's why Perfect Fit Two-Way Foundation is perfect for me. It gives me a natural finish and leaves my skin feeling very radiant and fresh all day long. It also helps to retain the moisture of my skin. So my skin looks healthy and glowy!"

Perfect Fit Concealer (RM30.90)

Blemishes? Scars? Dark Circles? This is your saviour! Formulated with Perfect Cover Powder, this concealer provides high coverage and conceals any imperfection. The Skin Fit Prescription prevents creasing throughout the day. Its cream based spreads easily on skin, besides containing Water-holding Collagen, Vitamin E, and Hyaluronic Acid.

"This is my must-have especially when Im travelling. Whenever I don't feel like wearing too much makeup, this conceals blemishes, scars and it certainly helps by covering up my dark circles. I love that it's creamy and when used with the powder foundation, my skin looks especially flawless," says Amanda Imani.

Total Hydration Day Cream White (RM26.90)
Total Hydration Night Cream (RM28.90)
Hydration and whitening in one! What more could you ask for? This is formulated with advanced Double Whitening Complex, a first ZA technology to combine whitening ingredients, Tranexamic Acid and Vitamin C to brighten skin in just 10 days. Infused with Total Hydration signature Amino Mineral Complex, gives more moisture to skin and radiant appearance. It keeps skin protected throughout the day with SPF 18/PA++ and anti-UVA/UVB for the day cream, while the night cream replenishes lost moisture.

Total Hydration BB Cream UV White (RM 27.90)

Skin will stay fresh and matte with 100% natural Oil Control Powder while the Color Control Powder provides higher whitening coverage for spots and freckles. This BB ceam gives skin a natural even-looking finish with brighter, longer-lasting and effective coverage!

Thank you ZA Malaysia for the generous goodie bag and giving me the chance to try out these new products! Will review them soon :)

ZA Spring/Summer 2013 will be available nationwide from January 2013 onwards. 

With fellow blogger, Rabiatul Adawiyah!

She looked stunning, kan!
"Less is more, and skincare comes first," says Amanda Imani.


Tayangan Media: Gangster Celop

February 14, 2013

Hi everyone! Last week, I attended my first ever tayangan media for filem!! Sorry bunyi macam excited sangat kan sebab memang sangat-sangat excited sebab selama ni, tengok snippets of tayangan media kat tv je, macam rancangan Melodi, Propaganza, berita, etc. Finally dapat pergi dan lihat sendiri event macam ni :)

Terima Kasih Rabiatul Adawiyah (blogger) for inviting me to attend the media screening of Malaysia's latest film, Gangster Celop. I was really excited untuk filem ni sebab semua para pelakon filem ni memang my favourite actors dari duluuu lagi :)

If korang minat filem action and comedy, this is the best yet! I mengaku, I gelak besar throughout the whole entire movie and so were the rest of the people!!! Sangat funny okay Gangster Celop! Memang kecoh and riuh the whole cinema! Boleh dikatakan, hampir setiap selang beberapa minit tu ada je scene yang kelakar, dari mula sampai habis filem. Kalau tengah sedih-sedih tu, kalau tengok filem ni mesti boleh gelak :)

Gangster Celop adalah hasil kerjasama dan gabungan Skop Productions dan Excellent Pictures, yang telah menelan belanja sekitar RM 1.7 juta. Filem ni dibintangi oleh Shamsul Yusof, Kamal Adli, Hanis Zalikha, Azad Jasmin, Yus Jambu, Usop Wilcha, Reen Rahim, Lan Pet Pet, dan ramai lagi!

Hanis Zalikha... familiar kan nama tu? Haaaa.. yes that pretty blogger at! She's now in the filem industry and Gangster Celop adalah filem pertamanya. Tahniah Hanis Zalikha kerana berani dan tabah untuk menceburi diri dalam industri ini and I think she did a pretty good job in Gangster Celop. Kudos!

Sinopsis: Gangster Celop mengisahkan Aman (Kamal Adli) dan Adam (Shamsul Yusof) yang baru dibebaskan dari penjara, ingin keluar dari dunia gangsterisme, telah ditugaskan untuk menjaga Suzana (Hanis Zalikha) anak kepada Mat Jambu (Yus Jambu), ketua kumpulan yang dianggotai Adam dan Aman. Dalam pada masa yang sama, pertelingkahan merebut kawasan di antara Mat Jambu dan Man Cirit (Azad Jasmin) semakin kritikal, sehingga melibatkan Suzana, Aman, dan Adam.

Pengarah : Ahmad Idham
Penerbit:  Ahmad Idham, Datuk Yusof Haslam, Azlan Shah Jaffril
Kategori: Action/Komedi

Brought my friend along, Nina who loves local films like I do!

Check out trailer ni!

Kalau korang nak tengok Kamal Adli berdangdut, Shamsul Yusof bertudung siap makeup lagi, and dua pelakon hensem dan macho ni jadi 'babysitter', jangan lupa untuk menyaksikan filem Gangster Celop bermula 21 Februari di pawagam! :)

Tahniah and thumbs up kepada pengarah dan penerbit for producing such a funny action film full of values and lessons, which many Malaysians love and appreciate.
