Review: Crazy Rumors Sunset Lip Colour

October 28, 2013

Salam and hello hello beauties! It's been too long since the last I did a lip product review. So today I want to share with you a new lippie that I received from Hishop recently! 

If you like natural and organic beauty products, you will love this one. Crazy Rumors produces lip products that are all-natural and vegan only, fused with fun flavours and colours. Founded in USA, their products are made of fine organic ingredients only! They are famous for their lip balm signature products, so they decided to add more fun to the collection by producing a lip colour with lip balm benefits!

It's 100% natural, perfected with Hibiscus flavour!

Crazy Rumors HibisKiss Sunset Lip Color (Net Wt. .09oz/ 2.5g) is an orange brown-ish shade, or earth tone (hence, the name Sunset). It's a lip color with lip balm benefits (double love!). I hardly wear lip products that are orange tone, because I love pink more! hehe. The color is not that strong when I apply it first, so I apply the second time and then only I could see the colour on my lips. In the picture below, on the left side is one swipe, and on the right side is two swipes. (sorry tangan saya sangat hairy ye!) 

Hmmm..what do you think of the shade on me? I say it looks natural yet gives me a tint of colour and I quite like it. I think this shade is suitable for both dark and fair skin.

Here's a photo with strong lighting; The colour kind of washes out a little bit..but not too bad! 

  • This all-natural and vegan lippie contains Certified Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Macadamia Seed Oil, Certified Organic Shea Butter, Candelilla Wax, Soy Wax, Mica, Titanium Dioxide, Iron Oxide, Jojoba Oil, Carnauba Wax, Certified Organic Natural Flavor, Vitamin E, Natural Stevia. With all these amazing moisturizing ingredients, my lips are definitely moisturized and hydrated throughout the day! 
  • In terms of longevity, the color fades quickly, so I need to reapply it again and again. Eventhough the colour fades, the moisturizing benefits stay!! My lips are softer and I feel like going around town kissing everyone. HA! 
  • It gives you just the perfect shine, not super shiny like lip gloss. It's suitable for daywear especially if you're on the go and need something quick to moisturize your lips with a hint of colour! 

Overall, this is a good lip product especially to those with dry and chapped lips! It's like a quick girl-rescue!

MUAHHH I've just been Hibiskiss-ed!

Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign with MURAD

October 07, 2013

One day I was doing self-examination and I felt a lump (like a size of a marble) at the edge of my right breast. I was panicked... I was contemplating if I should go see the doctor or no. I ignored it for the next few days..and the lump was still there. Oh no.. I was even more worried! I decided to see a breast specialist to get it checked..did my ultrasound etc. It turned out to be an infected cyst that didn't interfere my breast tissue, but just the skin layer, and it was NOT cancerous. Alhamdulillah...ya Allah. She gave me antibiotics and the swelling started to fade slowly. The doctor said it was good that I came early or else it could have been something else which may be more serious, and may affect my breast tissue. And there have been cases where cysts are cancerous. Starting from that day, I've been more conscious about my breasts, and I have been doing self examinations more frequent now, besides eating healthily and working out. Please ladies (and gentleman!), if you feel something is not right with your breasts, go get it checked. tak rugi pun! Prevention is better than cure.

It's Pink October, which means it's the month of breast cancer awareness campaign. This cause is so dear to me because I have lost many aunts and grandaunts to breast cancer. Let's all support this cause and spread the awareness on breast cancer. There will be free breast examination!

See you at MURAD in Empire Shopping Gallery this Thursday at 3pm!
