Universal Studio Japan Rides for first timer

Monday, October 23, 2017 3 Comments

Recently, I have an opportunity to visit USJ , Universal Studio of Japan. I am one person who don't really fancy joining the queue just for the ride. Not to mentioned my enochlophobia syndrome. Really hate crowd. When I was browsing my life bucket list and found visit USJ is part of it. I was like...what was I thinking when I include this as part of the list.

Whatever it is ...visiting USJ alone is possible. would be fun if you are with friends.

For those who interested to visit USJ for first time, here are some tips to make your visit more like lifetime event based on my recent experience.

1. Purchase your ticket in advance to avoid those long queue at USJ.

Where to purchase USJ ticket online?

I bought mine from So easy just purchase the entry pass like one or two month ahead.I also bought the express pass for Harry Potter ride. The package  bought called USJ Express 4 which allow me to enjoy express entry to  4 rides below :

1. Harry Potter Entry time at 10:10am
* Harry Potter Forbidden Journey Ride at 10:30am

2. Flying Dinosaur at 12:50

3. I can choose between Spiderman or Jurassic Park, The Ride 8 (anytime)

4. I can choose between Jaws or Terminator or Backdraft

USJ ticket from is very easy to use. I just need to print out the voucher and get it's barcode scan at entry gate.

How much is the USJ ticket?

Well, October is the peak season since China is on long holiday and the crowd are mostly Chinese , Korean tourist and also local. I bought mine for almost RM500 plus for both entry pass plus express pass. huhuhuh...once in a life time kind of visit for me. I don't mind to splash some treat for my own birthday gift. Yup! I went during my birthday 12th Oct. hehehe..

You can purchase online USJ Ticket here :

How to go to USJ by train ?

I stayed somewhere near subway purple line. I think it Tannemachi line. Just bear in mind if you are going to USJ just make sure you take JR Yumesaki Line or another name is JR Sakurajima line.

2. Dress up at USJ

I always wanted to do cosplay once in my life time but don't really have suitable place to do that plus the timid side of me too. So I decided to dress up like a minions. Not like I like minions but this is the easiest one for me. No need to put much effort. Just one yellow T Shirt and blue denim overall over it. Yeayyyy!! one minions happily took the morning train to USJ on 12th Oct. Although most of the USJ staff I met greet me as MIN-NIONS!! every time they sees me, I still feel intimidate. Seriously, most of the USJ visitors put so much effort for the cosplay costume. From clown, narruto, Chinese Vampire, Sailormoon, and many other anime character. They are all...DAEBAKKKK!!!! to my eyes. Salute! Since I went there during Halloween mood , many scary character around too. I will tell you later about me getting chase from Zombies and this minion really ran for life like one mad minion.

I bought egg sandwiches at 7E below my hotel and then bought some hot coffee from Starbuck near USJ and wait for the entry time. It was drizzling at that time. Many girls are putting up costume and make up at Starbuck too. One Minion calmly enjoy the sandwich and hot latte, huhuhuhuh. I went to the USJ gate around 8am and join the queue like anyone else. The feeling at that I waiting for concert hall to open??? Once the gate opened at 8:30am most crowd don't walk ...they run. WTH! they really no joke. One minion calmly walk ..clueless and no direction too. It was raining heavily too. WTH! soaking wet minion looking for shelter.

My no direction walk led me to Wonderland. I was the first person there. huhuhuh..I guess all the other crowd start with bigger and more adventurous ride. Why don't I warm up first ? It was the ride for little kids.  Since I was raining, most ride seat are wet too. The staff was really delightful. One minion enjoy snoopy merry go round, then the cup cakes round chair and also the Hello Kitty house. I was the first person for all this ride. I am one and only too. WTH! When I think back this is so much better rather than compete with little kids later on. kekekeke...This evil minion!

photo take by one of the staff. At least this is free!!!
Hello!!! Kitty....Kawaii or not???

Hello Kitty house at USJ - I really clueless on what is all about. All I know was greeted warmly, the they led me to do such pose. WTH! But..why not? kekekeke...then they told me Rina! Hello Kitty is waiting for you. I was led to another room and there waiting for me Hello Kitty and she hug me and then both pose 'kawaii' stuff. I was like ...OK!!! just play along la. Then when times up they led me to photo counter and there they asked me to purchase my photo with Hello Kitty. huhuhuhuh the price start with 2,000 yen. Me was like...I look so ugly on the photo. Not worth of my 2,000 yen. kekekeke..No thank you Kitty Cat!

3. The Wizarding World of Harry Potter 

Since my timed entry for Harry Potter was at 10:10am, I have no choice to find the place soonest possible to avoid late. Remind that you need to be punctual or you will get rejected. Since I was super anxious , I really linger around HP place until my entry time. nervous freak minion. A visit .

The Harry Potter and The Forbidden Journey 

Its a 3D thrilling ride!  It will takes you travelling through Hogwards Castle. It was a thrilling and exciting ride for me since I am one big fan of Harry Potter. Not sure about other people, unfortunately I got really sick after the ride. hahahaha...lucky don't eat much for breakfast. If not you will see one minion throw up at Hogwarts. kekekeke...

Butter beer at Harry Potter

Another reason I visit HP is to taste the most shout out HP specialty drink, Butter Beer. How to describe butter beer taste??? To me it taste more like light root beer with vanilla ice cream topping. Its not too delicious but it addictive to me. I drank as many as I can. But can take 3 of it. My last butter beer is in that 1,100 yen plastic mug for my souvenir.

Harry Potter merchandise

They are very pricey. The cheapest keychain cost you around 1,600 yen. The staff at most souvenier place at USJ are pretty much friendly. They are fine for you to take selfies with all the merchandize as long as you are careful with it.

4. The Amazing Adventures of Spiderman

I got express entry for this. It was really fun for Spiderman ride where you experience Spiderman saving you from super villian. The ride was really lot of action, drops and spin with awesome 3D graphic. Not to mentioned the lights, fire, fog ,smoke and water spray too. Really worth the express pass.

5. The Flying Dinosaur

I have entry time for this one at 12:50. Really worth of express pass for this one. I screamed on top of my lung for this. OMMMAAAAA!!!!! save me!!!! WTH! I thought I am super brave for this kind of ride. Who knows....its not a sit-down kind of roller coaster. I was up on roller coaster where my body was suspended face down in midair. When the ride started it feel like coaster pull my body high and there was noting but air between me and the ground. Seriously , I really feel like flying through the sky. Worth of my express pass because the queue was super super long time.

6. Hollywood Dream - The Ride Backdrop

I don't get any express pass for this but joined the queue for almost 60 minutes. Worth waiting! The staff will ask 'front fall' or 'back fall'. I chose 'front fall'. If I choose 'back fall' means everything will be backwards. I afraid my head go dizzy if everything backwards. It was really an exciting roller coaster ride and it can be scary too. You can enjoy the view of Osaka on this ride. Did I scream??? Well...of course..I went ...OMMMAAAA !!! OMMAAAA!!!! Huwaaaarrgggg!!!! throughout the ride. Did I really see Osaka on this ride ? Are you kidding me? I was busy screaming with eyes closed! hahahahahaha...Should I tell you more???? I know nothing and really don't know what was happening.Do you think I want to join the next 90 minutes to queue for the 'back fall'? No thank you! My head was spinning hard after I got down. I still need to find my way home later. At this point even my leg feel so weak.

7. Terminator

I have express entry pass for Jaws or Terminator or Backdraft. I was aiming for Jaws but that ride was closed for maintenance. Use up for terminator then since the backdraft waiting time was super short. Tell you about it why is was very short waiting period for backdraft later. 

Terminator is basically a show. You will join the crowd standing listening for almost 15 minutes briefing by one lunatic woman host in Japanese language. For those  who understand , they will laugh at her antique. I was standing there stare blank like a fool. Then everyone led to theater with 3D glasses. I basically doze off! Super boring for me. Not worth of my express pass.

8. Backdraft

Waiting time only like 30 minutes. Super short time. I was wondering why this is not so popular. huhuhuhuh...I will tell you why. You need to join the crowd for briefing by uniform people in dark room. They look like army and very serious briefing in Japanese. I guess if I understand what they talk about at that time, I already ran out for my life. But...I don't understand any single words. I just waited for what happened next like fool. They then show movie clips on people found dead and sort of evil or monster attacked the town. After the clips all of us were led to the back door. I thought all done. When I was walking among the crowd my thought was like...cehhhh...what is this??? No ride! Nothing! Then I realize something fishy. I was walking with on my side was covered by dark wall. Then I heard people creaming like mad at the other side of the wall. We was then been put to wait and only release in group of 10 at most. 

As my turn came, I walk calmly and at left and right full of thick bushes and then.... 'F' ! ''F' group of zombies appeared from left right and in front of me. You think this minon will still walk.Hell no!!! I ran and ran and ran...don't care whatever..I just ran ran and ran...who cares! Then reached to the end. The rest of people in front of me was waiting with panick and shocking face. Some even almost in tears. There are few exit. The army pointed to one of the exit. I just ran and if I don't the zombies will surround me again. It was horror outdoor maze.

After reached to exit...I was panting. WTH! WTH! with this backdraft. Then when I read the show in front of that place. Backdraft 'Dead Forest' . I wish to notice that before I even join this game. Uwaaaaaaa...Backdraft! not ever again. Not worth to scare off this minion!!! Bad zombies!!! Bad zombies! You know how realistic is Japanese cosplay can be. The make up really like real and the feeling..I feel like Gong Yoo in Train to Busan. My knee almost fall out!

9. Sesame Street 

I join this to console myself after running hell out for my life from zombies. It was a fun show. I laugh out of this. Guess! at that point my mind really went super crazy after 'Dead Forest' run. I was not myself when I reached Sesame Street.

10. Space Fantasy - The Ride of Dream comes true

I remember this is one fun ride too. You will be riding on a space ship and really fun. My mind almost forgot the zombies earlier. Worth of my 40 minutes queue.

11. Expecto Patranum Night Show

Hang around The Wizarding World of Harry Potter in evening. When I was there the show started at 6:30pm. Really love this show. I watch death hallow flying around the Hogwarts. No need to join the crowd and standing like a fool right in front of the castle. I just watch it peacefully far from other crowd standing near to food cart while enjoying the corn churritos.

Told you the crowd at USJ are really awesome when it come to cosplay

Spending my time selfies at merchandise. I really go all out for this. hahahaha

When you are tired...just sit anywhere you want.

Minion park is super crowded too. Mostly parent with kiddo. People really queue up for cute minion sandwich and bun.

I noticed they block certain area with sign 'zombies zone'. My thought at that time still horrified from 'Dead Forest' maze run. huhuhuh...I really hurried find my way out to the exit after the 'Expecto Patranum at The Wizarding of Harry Potter. Not another run. The Zombies chased earlier on already giving me a nightmare. I wish bought that wand from The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. At least can use Expecto Patranum spell to all Zombies.

True enough!!!  it was dark at that time and USJ was invade by zombies. OMG!!!! They are everywhere. I dare not look further. Bad month for me to visit USJ. Blame my Mum for giving birth during Halloween Month. Poor my mum..hahaha So innocent in this story!

Although if you was outside zombies zone , the zombies still chase and scare you off. I was running hell out of my life to the nearest merchandise store.I even saw the girls behind me fall hard while got chase by zombies.   I only dare to find my way out if sees the zombies are not around.If there is a video cam they will see one minion head peep in and out from the nearest store. She ran then hide and run and hide again and runnnnnn all the way when sees the exit door.

Things could have change if I dress as Zombie instead of Minion. huhuhuhu... bad cosplay choice.

I safely reached to the exit and end my day at USJ. What a thrilling and exciting experience during my 43rd birthday!

Where to watch beautiful Sunset in Labuan ?

Monday, October 02, 2017 23 Comments
Another working trip to Labuan end of last month. This will be my second last trip to Labuan. My final trip will be mid or end of Nov 2017. I am closing 2 offices at the same time. KL and Labuan office.Then I will be jobless and looking for job. Damn!!! Hate the feeling to go for job hunting and facing the interviewer again. isk isk isk ...enough on that. I will figure this out when time comes. All I can tell you corporate world is super nasty and cold. I will ditch out this dirt out and hopefully flower road will come to me again. Anyway for this entry...lets move on and get on with life like nothing really going to happen. Mental strong mode now ! I am just gonna live my life as it is.

I was really glad that Grab Car has finally arrive in Labuan. Yeayyyy!!! this means I can go anywhere I want by clicking the apps. WTH!!!! Happy to max. My mission on my 2nd day in Labuan is to visit to the best beach to view the sunset.

I was praying hard when saw the cloudy cloud is starting to form. God! please let me see the sunset today. I will do anything...anything...please make the weather better. I keep check out on the window at my office. By the time 4:30pm it started with light drizzle. I was like...God! please listen to my prayer for once. I am flying back tomorrow. 

By 5pm , it still cloudy but I force through. Went down to KFC below my office building for some picnic box by the beach and grab some drink. Click on the grab apps less then 5 minutes I was on the way to Layang Layangan Beach which is the best spot to view sunset in Labuan.

I reached this place for around 20 minutes car ride. I paid RM16 to grab driver. Enjoy the view and worry about getting back to town later. WTH! 

I was the only one at the beach at that time. I reached there a bit early. Lay down old newspaper on top of old wood for my picnic box and seating spot. 

Things to do by the beach if you are not into sun bathing

1. Get a simple lunch or dinner and enjoy food with sea breeze slapping your face. kekekeke...sounds brutal huh?

2. Sit down by the beach and think nothing. We are all human and need a reset time. Do this once in a while and you will know 'that' feeling.

3. Just like in the movie. Write your name on the beach sand. I did mine for the first time in my 40 years of  living.

4. Walk, explore the beach and mesmerized yourself with all sorts of things wash off to the shore. Seaweed, corals, pines and many more.

5. When time comes...sit down and relax while watching the sun slowly going down and the place getting golden bright and then slowly darker.

When is the best time to visit Layang Layang beach for sunset?

Generally , the sun start to set around 6pm to 6:30pm. You need around 30 minutes if coming from the town centre. It took me around 20 minutes journey from Financial Park Labuan. Depends on traffic though. It will get slower if in front of you is tractor or lorry. The road in Labuan is generally small road and single lane. 

It was an awesome sunset view for me. God answer my prayer and its my turn to repay the kindness by being a good living soul on earth. By 6:45pm, I was safely back to my room with great memories. Next trip planning to visit Pancur Hitam beach which is another nice spot.

Any of you from Labuan? Suggest where do you want me to visit in my next trip please!

Healthy Hand and Nail with Senteurs du Sud

Thursday, September 28, 2017 19 Comments
Few years back Argan Oil has been widely use for smooth , silky and healthy hair. Well...thats all I know. Argan Oil gives benefit for hair. Never occur to my mind it benefit for skin too. hehehe...I need to read more than. 

I read somewhere main reason Argan oil is healing is because of it is rich with Vitamin A and E. It also pack with anti oxidants, Omega 6 Fatty Acid and loneic acid. If apply onto skin it will helps to ease inflammation while moisturizing the skin. Now many cosmetics company include Argan oil in high end anti aging , hair and skin care. 

Last few weeks Zash Cosmetics sent over one small tube of Senteurs du Sud Hand and Nail Cream and also few sachet of face cream...haih!

I normally super lazy to even apply lotion to other part of my skin. Having to try out Hand cream really make me super duper lazy. I tried it anyway on and off because sometimes I totally forgotten about it.

Tried this hand and nail cream for a week. I won't do a review like any other bloggers who will see the effect after a week try. Maybe the product is magical for their skin.. I am just a normal person so my skin will not see any effect after I use it for a week. But I still can't review it after many months since the brand will be harping on me . haih!

All I can write here is my experience about this product. Senteurs du Sud Hand and Nail Cream, reached me in 50ml tube. They do have the 100ml tube for this too. 

Senteurs du Sud Hand and Nail Cream claimed :

"Enriched with argan oil and honey extract, the hand cream protects , nourishes and regenerates epidermis. It preserves hands youth and softness. Argan oil combined to lemon essential oil strengthens and protects nails. "

My experience applying Senteurs du Sud Hand and Nail Cream :

* Texture - very creamy and a bit sticky at first but it will quickly absorb into skin.
* Smells - at first I mistaken it smells kind of like Almond milk with a zest of citrus sense but I was wrong its  a combination of argan oil , honey extract and lemon essential oil. It gives a refreshing smells and awaken the cells of your skin.
* I applied it twice daily and kind of feel it helps to moisturize my hand and my nail feel less dry too.

My takes for Senteurs du Sud hand and nail cream?

I will use in long run to heal my dry skin. Since I am going through aging process my nail brittle a lot too. Argan oil as main ingredients to this product really provide healing to dry skin. It does provide softness too.

Senteurs du Sud proudly sent over their face cream in sachet (sample size) for me to write a review. Honestly speaking I really don't favour sample size in sachet form because it will get messy. First of all we don't open the sachet and finish it off at one go. My face not that big to apply all the cream from the sachet. Second I have to throw it away even after one use because I am afraid it will expose to germs if I leave it opened pack. Is it that expensive to give the blogger the tube or bottle one for review in exchange? If they give me the small bottle or tube I am more happy because can bring for traveling plus it more hygienic.

Senteurs du Sud Face Cream claimed :

Daily care specially designed for sensible and dehydrated skins skins , the face cream enriched in argan oil, olive oil, grape seed oil and shea butter. With an unctuous and comfortable texture , it nourishes , repairs and restructures the epidermis owing to its anti free radical effect; the skin recovers tonicity, suppleness and freshness.

My experience applying Senteurs du Sud Face Cream :

I tried Senteurs du Sud face Cream twice during my trip to Labuan. I don't really like the smells and the first feeling after apply this cream. But surprisingly love how my skin does not oily after wake up from sleep. It keep my skin well moist but not oily through out the night. I give this face cream two thumbs up! For those who looking out for luxurious feel can give this a try.

Will I personally purchase Senteurs du Sud organic skin care range?

Oh! yes....this is one good quality product. You don't have to pay more for such high end skin care.

About Senteurs du Sud brand 

Tagline : Simply bio , totally ethic, deeply south

Bamboo Briyani at Gamuda Walk, Kota Kemuning Shah Alam

Thursday, September 21, 2017 19 Comments
It was my first time visited to Gamuda Walk. Yes! totally out of my usual way but I was happened to be there. Gamuda Walk is not that big place to tour around. While touring around , I saw this bunting displaying Bamboo Briyani Rice. I was so excited! Damn! I was longing to taste this Bamboo Briyani for so long. But most of the place offer such cuisine located so like end of the world for me like Klang. 

I was contemplating to try this since 3 hours earlier just had Briyani Rice with my friend. Me was like....gosh! I wanna try this badly but I was afraid that over ate rice for a day and make me fat. My friend rationalize to me and you know what he said ???

You are already fat ? Eating rice twice for a day doesn't make any different. I was like...wanna get angry but realistically that is the fact! WTH! And this idiot ...bought that! ** Face Palm** I am a loser for the day! Whatever it is, the taste of this Briyani really worth it to be called loser to eat rice twice for the day. that also can ar?

You won't miss this cafe if you are at Gamuda Walk. The cozy cafe serve this super authentic Bamboo Briyani located Level One , Gamuda Walk near Kota Kemuning Shah Alam.

The front of this cafe display their cuisine specialty which is Bamboo Briyani. You can choose many types of Bamboo Briyani from Chicken , Mutton, Prawn and Lamb Shank. If you don't want your Briyani serves from Bamboo you can choose the Claypot Briyani too.

Cinnamon's Fusion cuisine also serve another unique dishes call Salmon Head Curry. I wanna try that too. Greedy side of me came out. But my fat stomach was crying for being too tight.

My choice for that day was Lamb Shank Bamboo Briyani. I shared this with my friend. So...I was not that glutton after all. **wink wink** with angelic face. 

Tadahhhh!!!! my Lamb Shank Bamboo Briyani reached my table in style. Do not worry about how to eat out the Briyani from that Bamboo. The waiter will come and serve the Briyani out from that Bamboo. Yes!!!! that Bamboo give birth to that Briyani and Lamb Shank onto my plate. OMG! The aroma of what in front of me....lingering through my nose and can't help to mouth watering.

The took away the bamboo from your table after serve it out. Can't wait to devour this Briyani. It look full of spices and herbs. I keep telling myself must review this in my blog. I know won't regret sharing this place to others.

My review on Bamboo Briyani from Cinnamon's Fusion Cuisine :

Isk isk isk ...why your cafe all the way in Kota Kemuning!!!! Why can't you open near KL or PJ ? I wanna eat this at least weekly. The taste is worth of  being call fat! Anyway, while eating this my friend keep telling me 'Basmathi rice' which is the type of rice use to cook Briyani is not fattening. I was like...really???? I can eat this a lot more then. kekekeke
This Briyani rice really cook with lots of herbs and spices in it. It get hot and spicier the more you eat it and you just can't stop. Don't need gravy and according to the Chef who is also the founder of this cafe, Briyani suppose to be eaten as it is without the gravy. The herbs and spices really packed and really hits you on your first mouthful.

Big fan of Briyani like me will never forget this taste. Really the best for me. Try this Bamboo Briyani for once and you know what I am talking about here.

The Chef/ Founder, Mr Nash happily chatting around with his customers and I can tell you they really serious about serving good food and drink to the patrons. He let me try his freshly brewed coffee and I was like damn...this is the black coffee I was looking for. Even the coffee will make me a regular customer if they are much nearer to me. The coffee bean according to Mr Nash is from Puro Fuerte brand which with dark roasted blend of high grown Arabica's with finest Ugandan Robusta's. For coffee lover like me....this is one good black coffee. Don't need sugar! It serves me right!

You can check out their official FB if you need more information of Bamboo Briyani at Cinnamon's Fusion Cuisine.

Where do you eat the best Briyani? Share with me the place please...I wanna check that place out.

I have terrible eye bag and dark Circle seems like born with me from my Mum Womb. Now that I am past 40s that crow feet eye emerge out of nowhere. Age gracefully and uglier too. Natural ageing kind of sucks sometimes because you need to look in the mirror every morning and the reflection kind of..... WTH! How do I start my morning with that kind of face? ngeeeeeee...such a motivational morning!

Main problem is not wrinkles or dark circle or even that crow feet thingy. I just feel uncomfortable if my eye area is dry. If I skip even one day of eye cream , it will get lot worst.

Abib Hydration Creme Water tube ,1.5ml

I use this the next day morning before applying make up. Just squeeze out few drops of Abib Hydration Creme Water tube  after toning and this act as serum. Dab gently onto skin for better hydration.

Calmia UV Protection Sun Stick Moist SPF50+/PA++

This is my first time applied UV protection sun stick. I love the glowing effect from this one. It does create the glowing and dewy effect onto my skin naturally. I think because its moist version so my skin is not dry at all the whole day after applied this.

Packaging wise, I really feel stick version like this is way better than the tube one. The smells is pleasant too. Its non sticky but a bit oily for me but that effect is temporary and it last after I applied the CC Cushion.

Bare Blanc Super Fit Cushion SPF50+/PA++ (mine came with No. 23 Natural Beige)

Jaw drop! not so 'kawaii' design. Looking at the packaging already intimidate from that doggy fierce face. Act like real protector. I am not sure if I dare to bring this out and touch up my skin in public. But hell! I don't need to re apply at all while in the office.

The box of this SUPER FIT Cushion may look fierce but the real product is vibrant and cheeky. I thought my skin will look too browny after apply this. Well...NO! I was wrong! It blend well onto my skin. See? My skin not browny , right? When it first touch my skin, I feel like cooling sensation. Loving that refreshing feels. It look super fit blend and even out my skin tone better. My eye bag hidden well too. No need concealer.

Look at My Eye, Eye Shadow (mine came with no. BR425)

Look at My eye!!!! So nice color a warm brown shimmering eye shade.Its not even flaky like other eye shadow.  Super Love the color. Gosh! really no words to describe this. I don't even apply any eye liner to enhance it. It fits me perfectly!

I just hope don't end up with another powdery eye shadow. I kind of clumsy and always drop my eye shadow.

Laneige Ideal Blush Duo , No. 3 Juicy Rose

I one person who always look like tomato cheek whenever applied blusher. I tried this anyway. The color is Juicy Rose and really love the shades. Always fail with shading. So I use the darker to highlight my nose line with hope it look 'less flat'. Aihhhh!!! don't see any different? I see none! kekekeke...failed make up tutorial from me. hahaha

I mixed both colors and highlight my cheek bone, chin tip and forehead with it. The reason I was doing that is to bring out the shine and make my skin more rosy. In short, with hope I look sweeter and lively. **Face palm** so shy now! But you see the changes of my look from bare face earlier, right!!!!!

RiRe Luxe Matte Lipstick (mine came with no. 01 Nudy Beige) 

I swear this is matte! and this color works perfectly on me. Look at that! I normally don't pull off on any nudy beige. I look super pale like sick people. Not this one though. I expect matte would dried up my lips. Not this one thought.

From my experience on using RiRe Luxe Matte Lipstick :

* Doesn't dried up my lips
* Color works well with my skin and totally give my make up a natural look
* Unfortunately, this don't last long. Finished after lunch. Gotta re apply.

These days , I love to pose while sleeping. Don't know why! Act sexy with closed eyes. I tried with eyes open but my I look like in shock. I tried to half closed my eyes then it look like so horny. hahaha..  But you see the different after make over before using the Althea Sun-Kissed Box ,right? What is my make up theme again? I am suppose to look natural and not overdone. Did I pull this off ?
