What Did I Snagged At Malaysia Clothes Buffet?

Were you at the Malaysia’s Largest Clothes Buffet last weekend? Happened for 3 days at the Concourse Floor of Syopz Mall, Taylor’s University Lakeside Campus where there are more than 50,000 pieces of clothes up for grab. If you have missed this, I have shared about it in my previous post here. Be sure to follow me tight for future updates!

Malaysia Clothes Buffet

With my busy schedule, I only manage squeeze myself in to go on Sunday which was the last day of the event and that worried me because I was wondering if there is anything left. Of course, I wouldn’t leave the venue empty handed. I arrived at 12:15pm and they were running the Blowout Sales between 12:00pm to 1:00pm. The next session of the buffet will start at 1:00pm and I’m very lucky to have the opportunity to scout for what I want.

Each of us were given a zip lock bag of 14 x 9 inch and if anyone blows the bag, there will be a penalty of MYR 20. I do play safe when it comes to such challenge, in fact my bag could fit one more but I couldn’t find what I wanted. Guess how many did I snagged? A total of 8 pieces. In my opinion, no matter how many pieces one could snag, the most important element is if the person like what they have picked. Let’s see what I picked from the buffet!

Malaysia Clothes Buffet - Black & White Asymmetrical Peplum Top

Black & White Asymmetrical Peplum

I always love asymmetrical and what makes this more interesting that it’s a peplum top. Here I have paired it with my red dress and skinny belt. The bottom portion of the dress is a round skirt which helps to make the peplum style look more fluffy. It is made of chiffon and I also liked it has another layer of white chiffon where it creates layers to the style. Another ways to style with this top is pencil skirt, shorts and skinny pants.

Malaysia Clothes Buffet - White Tank Top

White Tank Top

As much as I like to wear tank tops, I do not have one in white. Therefore, I told myself I should definitely get one. The material is slightly sheer but not very obvious and this is a cross back tank top. I usually like to go casual with it and wear them with a pair of short jeans. They could easily be paired with any bottoms and outer wear.

Malaysia Clothes Buffet - Black and Turquoise Spaghetti

Black and Turquoise Spaghetti

Another basic casual wear, straight up stripped spaghetti top. I was worried that it could be too small for me when I first picked it. It is slightly tight but it’s stretchable. Just like the tank top, this can be paired easily with any outer wear or bottoms.

Malaysia Clothes Buffet - Sheer Long Sleeves Dull Pink Shirt

Sheer Long Sleeves Dull Pink Shirt

I can never have enough of sheers and chiffon. I do have something similar but it is in cream and this comes with a pocket. I always like chiffon for it’s light material and even if it’s long sleeve, it isn’t too bad to wear it in the tropical weather. This is an over-sized for me but I’m comfortable with it. Though it is in dull pink, it somehow portray quite a sweet look to it. This can be easily paired with any bottoms and can be nicely layered with sleeveless outer wears.

Malaysia Clothes Buffet - Convertible Peach Batiste Shirt

Convertible Peach Shirt

Another shirt but this fits better and different material (I believe it’s batiste). I call this convertible because I could wear it as long or three quarter sleeves. Plus I do not have any peach top which gives me a good reason to snag this. Batiste material is very light and airy. Peach shade always gives a warmer tone and I love this!

Malaysia Clothes Buffet - Bejeweled Pale Pink Dress

Bejeweled Pale Pink Dress

Despite of picking mostly casual tops, I was up for something glam. When I first picked up this dress, I thought it would be too small for me because my woes in over the hip and butt area. Yes, they are the biggest part of my body. I underestimated this dress and it didn’t hug my hips or butt tightly at all. It is loose that I look like a preggo. This can be worn as a dress or top. Under the sequins, it has a netting that creates softness to the style.

Malaysia Clothes Buffet - Sheer Floral Sleeves Pink Top

Sheer Floral Sleeves Pink Top

This top may look simple, I got attracted to it’s simplest details on the sleeves where it is sheer and embroidered with flowers pattern. I have paired this with a black skater skirt and I should have add a chunky or colorful necklace to spice up the style.

Malaysia Clothes Buffet - Twisted Gold Rope With Tassels

Twisted Gold Rope With Tassels

This pick was a last minute decision while I was packing the rest of the pieces into my bag carefully. It is a small item but I could use it as my belt. This gold rope comes with tassels at each ends. I did notice that one of the tassel is slightly damaged but it came off before I took this photo yesterday. I’m thinking of ways to fix it, it will be a waste if I toss it away.

FH Club Beauty Box

At the same time, there were other vendors at the buffet and one has caught my attention. A beauty box that I have to hear of and it only cost MYR 10. I went all over it and bought one for myself.

FH Club Beauty Box at Malaysia Clothes Buffet

MYR10 for all these? It’s definitely worth all the pennies! What makes it more interesting is that I was able to choose the items for my beauty box. From their display, I could pick 2 full size sheet mask, 2 samples and 2 fashion accessories. I have picked quite a handful of items.

  • Nature Republic Given By Nature Green Tea Mask Sheet
  • Nature Republic Given By Nature Chestnut Sheel Mask Sheet
  • Nature Republic Magic Remover Lip & Eye Fresh Tissue
  • Skin Food Gold Caviar Collagen Serum
  • Lavore Beige Turquoise Stud Dangle Earrings
  • Lavore Triangle White Crystal Patch Earrings

FH Club Beauty Box Nature Republic

I have also topped MYR2.00 along with the beauty box purchase and obtained another mask, Nature Republic Essential Solution Energy Ampoule Mask Sheet. This is a two-step mask which requires ampoule application before the mask.

FH Club Beauty Box Free Samples

I was given more samples of innisfree Air Skin Fit BB Cream, Inca Omega Power Oil and Nature Republic Super Origin Collagen BB Cream as well as fh Club brochure to further understand more. I’m not very sure of how their box works but they have quite a bit of sales happening in their web, fhClub.com.my.

I really look forward for Malaysia Clothes Buffet again but the venue is way too warm, I was sweating throughout my entire visit there including the buffet. Hopefully, organizers will be able to consider to run it indoor and it will be more comfortable to shop and run the challenge. If so, I will be back again!

Review: Phantasee Contact Lens in Natural Green, Mesmerizing Eyes with Enlarging Effect

When it comes to selecting contact lens, I always search for something that gives the most natural looking and opaque color. Other aspects that I’m looking into is the diameter about 14 mm, I don’t fancy those enlarging eye effect and thick black rims. Also, the comfortability and moisture is important. GlassesOnline.com.my approached to review one of their lenses in committing to their Blogger Ambassadorship and after much consideration, I have chosen Phantasee Contact Lens in Natural Green. Phantasee contact lens are more known for their crazy lenses such as cat eye, spider web and more, those are perfect for Halloween or Cosplay.

Maxvue Vision Phantasee Contact Lens in Natural Green - Blister Packaging

Phantasee Natural is the choice for those who are looking for a pair of contact lenses that would blend in with their discreet style. Produced with perfect colour blending in mind, the Natural series enhances yours eyes with subtle blending patterns and colours. The Natural series are also a 3 month replacement lens which make it a value for money option.

  • Frequency: Quarterly Wear
  • Diameter: 14mm
  • Material: Hydrogel Terpolimer
  • Water Content: 45%

Maxvue Vision Phantasee Contact Lens in Natural Green - In Case

I have high expectation towards these lenses. Although it is described in the website that these lenses is 14mm, it seems far bigger than I expected. I also have the tendency to choose colors that are very light because I have dark brown eyes to begin with and always worried that if the color lenses doesn’t show.

Maxvue Vision Phantasee Contact Lens in Natural Green - Close Up With & Without

Here is how it looks like of without and with the lenses. The color is acceptable but I was right on the enlarging effect and because of it, it doesn’t seem as natural anymore. My eyes usually fit nicely and look natural with 14mm lenses but this seems like 16mm lens.

To put this on is slightly tough because the lens is quite soft. I had to tilt my head back when the lens touches my eye to ensure that it doesn’t come off because it didn’t want to get attached. The color pay-off is much darker than I expected but the pattern of the lens does look natural actually.

Maxvue Vision Phantasee Contact Lens in Natural Green - Traclyn Yeoh

Here is me wearing the lenses and as you can see the color doesn’t show as much unless you come close-up to me. Great thing about the pattern of the lenses makes my eyes looks mesmerizing.

Verdict?

Everything actually seems good but the enlarging effect is just a turn off for me. Upon wearing this, it doesn’t feel comfortable for the first hour but I get used to it later on and after 4 – 5 hours, my eyes began to redden showing signs of dryness. In my opinion, I think these lenses are very affordable and this could last for 3 months. I also love the fact that the come in blister packaging because its more friendly to open it than vial packagings. If you fancy this type of lenses, it could be for you.

They have recommend a friend program for you to earn discounts where your friend will need to register and make their first purchase Also, coupon share with friends to earn vouchers to shop at MrLens are available too! If you want to know how to shop with them, click here. As I mentioned in my earlier post, I’m one of the participants for Pretty Sexy Beautiful Eyes Blogging Contest and here is my second pair which is Freshlook Colorblends in Gray to review. My first pair was Amethyst, review available here.

As always blister pack are much more user friendly when it comes to opening it rather than vial pack where you have to open the metal seal which is much more prone to injuring yourself. There’s quite a strong sterile scent when opening it but the scent doesn’t stay after a minute or two. These lenses are 45% phemfilcon A (with UV absorbing  chromophores), 55% water, in borate buffered saline containing 0.005% Poloxamer and they are monthly disposable contact lens.

I usually soak my lenses the night before with my saline solution, just to allow it to adjust to my suitable saline solution. These are 14.5 by diameter which doesn’t have much of a big eye effect. These lenses are meant to create a natural colored eyes and because it is a three tone lenses, it makes it much more natural.

Here is a before and after. How the lens turn out on your eyes is depending on your iris color and I have dark brown . For the image above, I’m using artificial light . I reckon gray is much more opaque than amethyst and they both looked really natural.

If you are a first timer in using this range of contact lens, I recommend trying this shade first if you’re unsure which color to choose from. Gray is one of the color that flatters most skin tones. I was wearing this lenses in one of my makeup tutorial, Ooh La Lace Prom and please check it out if you’re interested in this look from all the images available in this post. Gray is very alluring in many ways.

The above image is a mixture of artificial and natural light and you could see my eyes are much more lighten. Nothing too dramatic at all but it shows up better than Amethyst. Currently Mr Lens Facebook is having a campaign of Share with Friends to earn MYR20 discount once 10 of your friends like their page. So what are you waiting for?

Brands available in MrLens.com.my include:

Verdict?

These lens are super soft and it kept rolling on my palm while rinsing or flipping back when I try putting them on. Maybe I get the hang of it, the success rate of putting this lens is greater than Amethyst. This is much more comfortable and I still get some sight of blurry spots in my vision. I have not experience any redness from this lens yet because I wear this lens not as often as Amethyst. These pair also moulded its shape on to my eye just like how Amethyst did to me previously. Could someone tell me if this is normal? Despite of it doing so, I have not experience any irritation or other side effects because I  have the same experience with certain lenses too.  If you’re looking for more opaque shades, I suggest you to pick Brilliant Blue, Gemstone Green or Sterling Gray.

How much?

PROs:

  • More opaque than Amethyst
  • Natural look
  • High moisture content
  • No redness or irritation

CONs:

  • Too soft to stay that it kept flipping
  • Blurry vision

My rating: 3.5/5

Review: Amethyst Pretty Mystical Eyes

MrLens is the largest online reseller of contact lens from Europe in Malaysia and the finalist in the prestigious Swiss Economic Award in 2008. They have the largest online inventory offering the lowest price in Malaysia with free delivery (for purchases above MYR50 for selected areas in Klang Valley). They have recommend a friend program for you to earn discounts where your friend will need to register and make their first purchase Also, coupon share with friends to earn vouchers to shop at MrLens are available too! If you want to know how to shop with them, click here. As I mentioned in my earlier post, I’m one of the participants for Pretty Sexy Beautiful Eyes Blogging Contest  and here is my first pair of lens to review. I have selected Freshlook Colorblends in Amethyst, it comes in a box of a pair of lenses.

These contact lenses came in blister packs which is safer than little vials when it comes to opening the packaging. Blister packs are easy to use as you’ll just need to prick at the bottom left where it says ‘lift foil’ and pull to remove the seal. For those vials, they have metal seal where you’ll be very prone in injuring yourself while opening it.  There’s quite a strong sterile scent once the blister pack is opened. These contact lens is 45% phemfilcon A (with UV absorbing chromophores), 55% water, in borate buffered saline containing 0.005% Poloxamer and they are monthly disposable contact lens.

I soaked these lenses overnight with my saline solution before wearing them the next day. The diameter of the lens is 14.5 which is pretty much quite a standard size. There will be no big eye effect because those lenses diameter are usually larger than this. I prefer to go without big eye effect because sometimes the effect is a little exaggerating and I love playing around with colors more. These are three tone lenses and offers the most natural look for your eyes.

Here’s a before and after wearing the lens. How the color of the lens shows up on your eyes will depend on the color of your iris. My iris color is dark brown and I’m using artificial white light here. Amethyst is purple, however it turned out looking blue-ish on my eyes but it does look very natural.

The color is not as opaque and it’ll be very visible for only close-ups. If you’re looking for natural look lenses, these are great. I was wearing these lenses in one of my current makeup tutorials which is Mystical Sky Prom, please do check out the tutorial to achieve the look I’m wearing for this entire post! The makeup and the lens matches very well.

In this image it’s a combination of artificial and natural light. At this distance, I looked like I did not wear any lenses at all. Currently, MrLens Facebook is having a campaign on Share with Friends to earn MYR20 discount once 10 of your friends like their page. So what you’re waiting for?

Brands available in their website include:

Acuvue Tru Eyes, Acuvue Moist,  Acuvue Oasys, Acuvue Oasys Astigmatism, Acuvue Define, Soflens 38, Soflens 59, Soflens Toric, Purevision 2, Purevision HD, Biomedics 38, Biomedics 55, Proclear, Definition, Focus Dailies Aqua Comfort, Focus Night & Day, Air Optix, Air Optix for Astigmatism,  Freshlook One Day, Proclear 1 day, Sauflon Clariti 1 day, Soflens daily disposable, Acuvue 2, Acuvue Advance, Adore Dare, Adore Imagene, Adore Pure Eyes, Air Optix Multifocal, Biomedics 55 Evolution, Biomedics Toric, Blincon BB, Blincon Big Eyes, Blincon Classic, Blincon Elegance, Blincon Jazzy, Blincon Sweetie, Chameloen, Colorvue, Freshkon Alluring Eyes, Freshkon Color Fusion, Freshkon Dezigner, Freshkon Mosaic, Freshlook Colorblends, Maxim Color Blue, Maxim Colors Orange, Maxim Color Pink, Maxim Color Toric, Sauflon 55UV, Sauflon Bioclear, Saulfon Bioclear Toric, Sauflon Clear Comfort Aspheric, Soflens Multifoca and etc.


Verdict?

My first time wearing contact lenses are also Freshlook Colorblends and it took me half and hour to put it on. I almost forgotten about it until I tried putting this pair on. The lens is super soft that it kept rolling in my palm when I was washing it with my saline solution. Putting it on is difficult as it is so soft that it flips backwards or sticks halfway on the finger. I have not use this brand for such a long time and it took me half and hour again to put on again. My eye was getting red after its nicely on. For the first hour of wearing it, it was a little uncomfortable as I kept sighting blurry spots at the sides of my vision but after a few hours it was normal. I also get a little dizziness after 4-5 hours of wearing and my eyes started to get tired. Despite of wearing it for more than 8 hours, sometimes it makes my eye red but without irritation. Removing it was a little slippery because the lens doesn’t stay in its shape nicely and the shape of the lens moulded onto my eye ball. Is that normal? Because I only experienced it on certain lenses. If you’re looking for more opaque colors, you could look into Brilliant Blue, Gemstone Green and Sterling Gray.

How much?

  • Natural look
  • High moisture content

CONs:

  • Made me felt dizzy
