My first dUCk (read as dUCkscarves)

Masa dUCk mula-mula keluar dulu, I was wondering what is soo special about dUCkscarves that makes people crazy about it. My first impression is like, tudung plain je pun tapi rege ratus-ratus, memang gila lah diorang ni =_='

Bila tengok dekat price tag dia, jaw drop! How can the girls out there bought so many dUCks and even they make it as their hobby, mengumpul dUCkscarves, hence the #duckhunting on instagram

But recently, entah mana datang pengaruh tiba-tiba I fall in love with the brand. Sumpahan agaknya. Orang cakap jangan terlalu benci, nanti jatuh centa. Ingatkan dekat orang je, dekat tudung pun boleh babes ;p So, I decided to buy one for me ^_^ Let see wether it is worth it or not!

My parcel!

I bought my very first dUCkscarves from FashionValet website. Kalau nak beli dekat website, memang kena alert dengan update diorang dekat instagram (@theduckgroup). They will announce which range and colour that will be restocked but no exact time given. So, memang kena sentiasa refresh website. The #duckbattle is real I tell you! Untuk orang yang tinggal kat KL, you can get dUCkscarves at FashionValet Bangsar (Bangsar Village 2) or at theduckstore in Pavilion, KL. I bought from the website because I was in Kelantan for semester break. 

Now, let the dUCkscarves review begin!

I bought my dUCkscarves during festive season, so I got two packets of sampul raya!

The hard casing box itself makes this product luxurious. Plus the signature dUCk ribbon gives it an extra points!

What's inside:



Every box of dUCkscarves comes with personalised thank you card from D (the mysterious person behind dUCk brand), D's style card and not to forget, your dUCkscarves wrapped in signature dUCk wrapping paper. Seronok betul bila beli barang and boleh unboxing! Rasa macam dapat hadiah. That feeling tho ;)

My first dUCk is from premium basic range which is mixed crepe shawl in Peppermint

Kat bawah ni gambar dekat website. The colour is slightly different. So, kalau korang memang very concern about the colour, you may want to see it with your naked eyes by visiting theduckstore in Pavilion or FV Bangsar. Don't waste your money on things that you'll regret later.

This shawl's length is 173cm and 68cm width. The cutting is perfect for me! It has like a zigzag finished along the scarves. At first I think it is weird, but it doesn't give any weirdness to my face. Thank God!

Disebabkan terlalu excited, when I get my hands on this scarves, terus try pakai with different style. Senang nak iron, no doubt. And memang senang bentuk kat muka. It gives flowy effect and drapes beautifully. Even the scarves is thin, it is still opaque. Memang tak jarang. Sesuai dengan cuaca kat Malaysia ni. Thumbs up!

Lepas dah try pakai with different style, I realised there are pin marks on my scarves. Obviously caused by me lah ;D A bit turn-off for me but of course, mana-mana tudung pun akan berlubang sebab pakai jarum kan =_=' The pin marks will stay :/

#OOTD
I love how this scarves stay put on me. Anis dah pakai scarves ni sekali je baru and lepas tu terus basuh. One whole day anis pakai tudung ni. Memang melekat foundation dekat tudung, plus dengan peluh nye lagi >_< But no worries, the stain is easily washed off. Impressive! 

Kalau nak diikutkan hati, I really want more dUCks in my collection especially their limited edition! One fine day, I will have my hands on it :) I'm not an avid dUCkies, but surely my collection will keep increasing from time to time ^_^ This dUCkscarves may not be a necessary thing to buy but once you fall in love with it, you just can't hold yourself to buy more and more! My next mission is to grab the georgette or satin silk dUCks! Wish me luck *_^

Till then,
XOxo

Skinfood Rice Mask Wash Off review

Hello there! Have you read my blogpost about Althea Korea birthday? No? Not yet? No worries, here's the link, click here. In the blogpost, I had mentioned one of my haul from Althea is Skinfood Rice Mask Wash Off. It is one of the Skinfood bestseller! A wash-off mask containing rice extract that moisturises skin and brightens tone. With its texture of ground rice, it leaves skin bright, soft and lustrous.

Packaging:





The mask container is in opaque white colour with descriptions at the side of the container. Most of the descriptions written in Korean as you can see in the pictures above. Actually, when I want to purchase this mask at Althea, it looks small. However, when I received it, the mask actually pretty big and I think this mask could last a year for me to finish it, or maybe more than a year. We'll see ^_^ But it depends on my usage too. Kalau rajin, hari-hari pakai rasanya tak sampai setahun dah habis ni :p

Texture & Scent:



This mask texture is like a ground rice or we call it 'beras hancur' in Malay, if I'm not mistaken. Bila sapu dekat muka rasa macam ada biji-biji beras melekat kat muka sampai adik anis tanya "ape tu?" and I reply "ada nasi" :p It doesn't irritate my skin at all. I can feel a bit cooling sensation upon applying the mask on my face. For the scent, I found it weird because it scents like a man deodorant stick ;D It smells like my dad deodorant stick that I used to play with when I was kid :p But it doesn't affect me at all, I still love to use it ^_^

How to use:
After cleansing, gently massage with ample amount over dry face avoiding eyes and mouth area. Concentrate around nose area and repeat it using grans. Rinse with lukewarm water after 10-15 minutes of massage.

I use this mask after I cleansed my face with my cleanser. Sometimes after cleansing, I used face scrub and then I used this mask. I let my face to dry first before I applied this mask

Review:
Before & After

This mask works wonders! I love that my skin feels very soft and smooth. It also moisturises my skin well. Sometimes, I forgot that I haven't wear moisturiser because I felt that my face already moisturised. Jimat moisturiser ^_^ I am satisfied with the result and it makes me want to use it everyday. Usually I wear it in the morning. I used another mask at night which I will review soon. p/s it is a good mask too! The price of this mask at Althea is only RM20! The normal price is RM45. Such a great bargain right ;) About the brightening effect, I wasn't sure about that because it doesn't give big impact on me. But for soft and smooth skin texture, definitely YES!

Breena Beauty Face Luxe Brush review

Dah lama sebenarnya anis aim nak beli Face Luxe Brush dari Breena Beauty tapi selalu out of stock ;( And bila diorang dah restock balik brush ni, cecepat order ^_^ Thank you dekat Mr. AA sebab belanja :p

Suka betul tengok packaging dari Breena Beauty, cantik! The product is nicely wrapped with pink wrapping paper, tied with white ribbon and comes together with a note card. Rasa macam dapat hadiah walaupun dah tahu apa kat dalam tu ^_^




Product Packaging:

Front                                                                    Back

The box looks feminine yet sexy at the same time. The lace flower print plus the nude colour of the font and at the side of the box makes it looks sexy for me... I don't know why, but I feel it is kinda sexy LOL! The brush itself looks luxurious with white and rose gold handle.


Sedikit info tentang brush ni:
Face Luxe Brush is a multitasking brush that works great with both powders & liquid formula products. It creates a soft focus airbrush finish to your skin. Best used in buffing & padding motion. It features soft dome sculpture shape & ultra soft (non-animal hair) synthetic bristles for an effortless, seamless & natural effect makeup application.
This brush work best with:
- Face Powder
- Powder Foundation
- Loose Powder
- Mineral Powder
- Translucent Powder
- Pressed Powder
- Liquid Foundation
- Bronzer

Before this anis pernah tengok youtube tentang makeup brush dan anis ada beberapa tips nak share dengan korang tentang makeup brush. Salah satunya ialah kalau korang nak pakai foundation atau nak bagi makeup korang nampak padat, korang kena guna brush yang bulu nya padat. Cara nak tahu bulu brush tu padat ke tak, korang tekan brush macam gambar kat bawah ni. Makin tebal brush bila korang tekan, maknanya makin padat brush tu. Tips seterusnya, makeup brush yang padat sangat bagus sebabnya ia dapat 'memegang' makeup product lebih banyak. So jimat masa! :)


Untuk test brush ni, anis dot liquid foundation dekat tangan anis macam dalam gambar bawah ni: 

Untuk foundation belah kiri anis blend guna tangan dan foundation belah kanan anis blend guna Face Luxe Brush from Breena Beauty. Memang nampak beza bila blend guna tangan dan brush. When I use brush, the foundation looks less cakey and more flawless with airbrush finish but I think I need to topup more foundation to make a better coverage. Berbanding kalau guna tangan, foundation nampak tebal dan tak sekata.

What I can say about this brush is it is worth to buy because it is considered as affordable and it works wonders. The bristles is made of synthetic but it is super soft to your skin. This brush has a dense bristles which qualifies it as a good quality brush. Moreover, Breena Beauty is a local brand (Malaysia), so let's support local brand! Other than Face Luxe Brush, there are also other type of brushes available. Check on their website here.
