Unboxing Mivva November 2013, BFF Sleepover Kit!

After hiatus for a week, now I’m back! Vietnam was all fun although it was tiring, I am still exhausted till today. I have returned to my office on Monday and look what I found sitting on my desk! Mivva sent me a surprise with their November 2013 box and you probably know about this if you followed me in Instagram. I totally have no idea that they would be sending this to me.

Mivva November 2013 BFF Sleepover Kit

This month’s box is about having fun with your BFF, a kit that comprises skin care that you can share with your BFF for a great sleepover pampering session.

Mivva November 2013 BFF Sleepover Kit - Card

As I opened the box, I’m greeted with a card and this kit is great reason to share and mingle with my BFF! Speaking of it, I haven’t seen her in months. The card has a list of what’s inside the kit and I’m already very excited just by going through the list. Let’s see what’s inside!

Mivva November 2013 BFF Sleepover Kit 2

I saw something pink peaking before rummaging into the contents of the box. Poof! A loofah took over half of the space of the box and I saw some goodies that I’m eager to try.

Mivva November 2013 BFF Sleepover Kit - Loofah

This pink loofah is something I have least expected. It’s a bonus I would say especially when it is not stated in the card. I always love to use loofah when it comes to using shower liquids. They make shower liquids so much more economical.

Mivva November 2013 BFF Sleepover Kit - Antipodes Joyful Hand & Body Cream

Antipodes Joyful Hand & Body Cream (30ml)

Glorious summer berry flirts with South Pacific hibiscus flower to enchant the trials of everyday life with moments of fragrant joy. Nutrient-rich avocado oil delivers an immediate boost of abundant skin nutrients to dry, tired and stressed skin. This captivating and velvety cream will leave your skin dewy and fragrant, and free from oily residue.

This is the first time I came across hand cream sample that comes in a pump bottle. The scent is really addictive, it smells like sweet dried rose. The cream is velvety, it does hydrate my skin but it feels slightly tacky even after its all absorbed into my skin.

Full price: MYR149.00 (120ml)

Mivva November 2013 BFF Sleepover Kit - Stage Nail Polish

Stage Nail Colour

Go vampy with dark nail polish, or natural and sweet with a French manicure. With so many colors to choose from, you’d wish you had more fingers! The one-coat formula dries quickly to a glossy, salon-perfect finish.

This is definitely a full sized  nail polish and the shade that I have here is called Innocent. Its a pearl-like shade where the consistency seems to be a little thin that I’m worried if this nail polish isn’t opaque enough. I can imagine using this nail polish with my BFF painting our nails and toe nails.

Price: MYR35.00 (11ml)

Mivva November 2013 BFF Sleepover Kit - Neula 8 in 1 Tea Tree BB Cream

Neula 8 in 1 Tea Tree BB Cream SPF30 PA+++ (30ml)

Do not let yourself down by feeling greasy! Try experiencing all day oil gree with the new 8 in 1 Tea Tree BB Cream, a beauty product that you will sure fall in love with after the first try. With result such as anti-pimple, oil control, revitalization, UV protection, anti-ageing, soothing, light on skin , even skin tone help you appear fresh and natural with bare makeup.

I was very excited when I screened through the card and noticed one of the three Neula will be offered into the box. Deep down I was hoping for the BB cream because I wanted to find something that leaves my skin glowingly healthy with great oil controlling property without leaving my skin looking gray. This is a full sized BB cream and it fits to my skin type and need. It does look dark when I squeezed a tiny amount and it doesn’t have much scent to it. Once it is blended, it became slightly lighter that it see,s neutral during the swatch and it finishes off with bit of dewiness. I will definitely try this!

Price: MYR23.90

Mivva November 2013 BFF Sleepover Kit - UGB Facial Essence Collagen Mask

UGB Facial Essence Collagen Mask (1 piece)

With Hyaluronic Acid and various Botanical extracts in the mask, your skin is ensured to be moisturized for a long time. Collagen, main constituent of skin tissue makes your skin elastic and healthy.

I have yet to come across this Korean brand. As much as I love sheet masks, I would envision having this mask on with my BFF but since there is only one, the sharing would be incomplete.

Full sized: MYR198.00 (15grams)

Mivva November 2013 BFF Sleepover Kit - Dermost

ONL Dermost Moistay Cream 

Spring water cream for a balanced adjustment of oil and water. Hydrating and calming cream with a soft touch for intensive moisturizing and adjustment of the oil/water balance.

Full Sized Price: MYR144.90 (60ml)

ONL Dermost Moistay Fresh Gel Cream

Pure hydration for skin with much sebum. Gel Cream contains 100% spring water in its base!

Full Sized Price : MYR144.90 (60ml)

They both comes in sample sachet which their weight was not stated. I’m assuming the cream is meant for normal to dry skin as it was not stated clearly in the card. Since the Fresh Gel Cream helps with controlling skin sebum, I’m think this is suitable for normal to oily skin.

Mivva November 2013 BFF Sleepover Kit - Voucher

This kit also comes with Antipodes MYR20.00 gift voucher to shop at Skinlab store!

Verdict?

When this actually comes with the BB cream that I might be looking for the longest time, I totally had it. It gives me so much more excitement to share this with my BFF. The plus bonus is that it comes with a full sized nail polish which I could imagine those girly moments painting our nails together. I would say this is quite a worthy box (especially the BB cream) and again, ONL comes as the smallest sample as how it was on the previous box.

Monthly Subscription Price: MYR38

My Rating: 4.5/5

Fall Fashion Pairing with China Glaze Autumn Nights Collection

Summer has long gone and fall is where everything starts to be chilly all over. That doesn’t prohibit any fashionista to flaunt their pairings of their outfit to fit this season and at the same time to keep that inspiration coming in.

China Glaze Autumn Night Fall Fashion Pairing Banner

China Glaze Malaysia brings us their new Fall collection named Autumn Nights. This range is rich with colors, luxurious and elegant, great to go for any fashionista to complete their pairings. These are great to go with evening outs, cocktail parties, dinner functions with the girls laughing and flirting around the people they meet.

China Glaze Autumn Night Fall Fashion Pairing

This collection comes in 12 shades where they are not just your standard fall colors but inclusive of metallic gold an silver for that glamorous and luxurious feel. They are formulated to quick dry and last for a week without chipping, best to go with a layer of top coat to make it last even longer.

In collaboration with China Glaze Malaysia, I came out with my very own Fall fashion pairings incorporating each of the Autumn Nights shades. It took me quite a while to gather the right fashion to complete each look and they are whimsical, elegant, glam, edgy and chic. Let’s get into it!

Fall 2013 Fashion Pairing With China Glaze Autumn Night - Gossip Over Gimlets

Gossip Over Gimlet is a platinum shimmer nail polish which gives a very whimsical feel. I pair it with this grey dress patterned with maple leaf around it, matches with Fall season perfectly and the leaf necklace just adds more accent to it. The cream knitted cardigan adds more softness to the look with cream ribbon pumps. The ash grey handbag with gold chain matches the leaf necklace to compliments further for any cocktail party.

Fall 2013 Fashion Pairing With China Glaze Autumn Night - Goldie But Goodie

This look is glam and soft as to portray Goldie But Goodie which is a rust gold shimmer nail polish. I have combined cream fish tail dress with gold prints,  gold chunky leaf necklace and to warm up the look with large collared long sleeve beige coat. The gold accent never stops here but to carry a beige clutch with gold trims and fish clasp, heart bangles and gold glitter peep toe pumps.

Fall 2013 Fashion Pairing With China Glaze Autumn Night - Strike Up A Cosmo

Rose gold is a very popular color for Fall and Strike Up A Cosmo reminds me to bring the full on glamour to every cocktail party. This pairing portrays a strong character wearing rose gold sequinned peplum top with bodycon soft pink skirt. The burgundy asymmetrical peplum blazer will allow the sequinned peplum top peek through. Carry a matching rose gold winged tote and walk with strappy rose gold heels fit perfectly also for a girls night out.

Fall 2013 Fashion Pairing With China Glaze Autumn Night - Rendezvous With You

Your evening night out will not be ever boring with this flirty and elegant pairing. Rendezvous With You is a purple shimmer nail polish which shows edginess and elegance. I have combined one shoulder purple laced dress with long gold necklace. Get cozy with the black asymmetrical blazer and accessorize with gold diamond bangles and black rhinestones with gold frame clutch. To compliment the blazer and clutch, I have picked black strappy suede heels to walk on.

Fall 2013 Fashion Pairing With China Glaze Autumn Night - Public Relations

Public Relations is a violet gunmetal shimmer nail polish and by the name of it, we know that this carries a strong and detailed character.  I have selected a dark grey with white laced bodycon dress pairing it with a simple black blazer. To create an even stronger look, I have also selected a black statement necklace with a matching statement ring and a sleek grey watch. Busy characters always carry quite a bit of things with them where I have included a winged black and white handbag and not to miss, the black patent pump heels.

Fall 2013 Fashion Pairing With China Glaze Autumn Night - Kiss My Glass

This look is an inspiration from Carrie (Sex and The City) where she glams up incredibly well especially on night outs and dinner. This soft grey dress comes with many details of shiny sequins and beads, and accessorize it with simple heart swarovski necklace and bracelet. To match the swarovski, I have also selected a silver strappy heels with beads and rhinestones details to it.  The glam continues on with a darker grey coat with black faux fur and carry a vintage chunky clutch.

Fall 2013 Fashion Pairing With China Glaze Autumn Night - Tongue Chic

Who says that you can’t wear bright during Fall? Tongue Chic is a emerald shimmer nail polish where I have combined it with cream and white for this pairing. First to go with the turquoise ombre maxi dress and cream blazer with black ribbon. Fill the neck line with a cream statement necklace and a pair of white pump heels. The white and gold clutch allows the nail shade to show better as it contrasts.

Fall 2013 Fashion Pairing With China Glaze Autumn Night - Scandalous Shenanigans

Scandalous Shenanigans is a rich blue shimmer nail polish where rich colors are being brought in. This is more down to earth chic look where I have selected a dress with top white, blue pleated bottom with beads detailing on the waist.  To add softness to the look, I have pair it with brown leather jacker and brown knee length heeled boots. There are days where it maybe a little colder, I have add a light blue scarf and match the rich blue with  the edgy blue clutch.

Fall 2013 Fashion Pairing With China Glaze Autumn Night - QueenB

Queen B is a purple blue crème nail polish and I have came to do a conservative yet trendy look for this. This blue turtle necked bodycon dress doesn’t reveal much skin but it is very stylish and accentuates figure. Pair it with a deep blue faux two -piece blazer and glam up with matching gold chain necklace and bracelet as well as a gold statement ring. The conservativeness continues with a matching black  tote bag and patent pointy heels of black and gold.

Fall 2013 Fashion Pairing With China Glaze Autumn Night - Charmed Im Sure

Charmed I’m Sure is a purple creme nail polish which screams so much elegance to it. I picked a simple deep purple cross front long dress and pair it with body chain  which effortlessly gives so much details to the look. To compliment with the elegance and glam, I have paired it with black diamonte clutch, bracelet and heels. Rest assured to keep warm with a long black trench coat especially at night.

Fall 2013 Fashion Pairing With China Glaze Autumn Night - Don't Make Me Wine

This look is much edgy because Don’t Make Me Wine is a red violet shimmer nail polish, very rich yet dark. I have picked a tube dress where the top is black  and the bottom is bright magenta ruffled. Pair it with black leather jacket and contrast it with pink statement necklace and magenta rhinestone bangle. To compliment the black, I have also selected the black ringed clutch, statement ring and ankle heeled boots. Fall 2013 Fashion Pairing With China Glaze Autumn Night - Red-y Willing

Red-Y Willing is a red shimmer nail polish that could possibly portray elegance. I have selected this red chiffon dress with black lace prints on it.  It’s conservative yet soft for its texture, I have selected matching lace clutch and heels. To accentuate the waist further, I have picked a thin gold belt to contrast the dress.  The black  military-inspired trench coat will help to keep you warm from the cold weather.

These are the 12 pairings complimenting each other with China Glaze Autumn Night Collection. The nail polishes are available for MYR 42.00 at Isetan One Utama and KLCC. I know its a little difficult especially in Malaysia to wear jackets and coats but I think skipping them would allow you to be elegant, glamorous and edgy, just like how I did for all the pairings.  Do share with me which pairing do you like and I’ll be happy to hear from you!

Simple Daisy Nails Tutorial

The weather is cooling down with rains and cloudy days. On the west side of the globe, its transitioning to fall season. That doesn’t mean you can’t wear cute pastel shades on your nails. I’m not sure if it works for you, looking at pastel colors somehow brightens and lightens my day. This nail tutorial is rather simple, having sky blue shades with tiny detail of flowers and I’d like to call it Simple Daisy Nails.

Simple Daisy Nails Tutorial - What You'll Need

What you’ll need,

  1. Base coat
  2. Baby blue nail polish
  3. White nail polish
  4. Yellow nail polish
  5. Top coat
  6. Dotting tool or any rounded tip for dotting patterns

Simple Daisy Nails Tutorial - How To

  1. Apply base coat all over the nails.
  2. Apply baby blue nail polish all over the nails.
  3. Use your dotting tool and dip into the white nail polish then create 5 dots at the corner of your nails to resemble the petals.
  4. Clean your dotting tool and dip into the yellow nail polish. Dot it at the center between the white petals created earlier.
  5. Allow it to dry and seal everything with top coat.

Simple Daisy Nails Tutorial 2

 

My white nail polish is a little thick and it tend to get stringy when I created the petals but it doesn’t look too bad. I create additional daisy on my thumb for another corner of my nail bed. For some reason, the daisy does look like a bulls eye egg to me, LOL!

Simple Daisy Nails Tutorial 3

This nail art is rather simple, easy, cute, feminine and delicate that anyone could do it. Hope you enjoy this simple tutorial and if you have tried this, don’t forget to share it with me either in Facebook or Instagram. I’ll be happy to see your work!
