Dare to be bold? Try MODBOX (February 2013 edition)

Hello lovelies,

Do you remember the last time you had won something? That twinkling, happy sound from your head screaming on the top of its lungs as if you had just won an oscar?

I do!!!! In fact I had won an awesome giveaway from MillionDollarBeauty in collaboration with MODBOX beauty box!!!!

Here's a quick view of the February 2013 edition MODBOX!!!!

Did you notice the bling bling wrapper in the box? I was surprised to see it coz I normally use it to sew clothes. Lets say I got something extra out of this months box ;)

To all current subscribers of MODBOX, dont' forget to post a product review or rate 3 products on Modshop to receive a mystery gift in your next Modbox!!!

and here are the products for this month:

1. PERKINS Nail Wrap 20 strips -  RM39.90/ 20 strips  (FULL SIZE)

A super glamorous nail for the fashionista on the go -just peel, apply and file!!!!

They even had a small black and pink nail file in the box!!!

A close-up of the design:

Isn't this just super gorgeous. I can' take my eyes off it!!!! 

2. ESSENCE Smokey Eyes Set (04 Show Off) 3g -  RM 11.90/3g  

Smokey Eyes set that comes with a cream eyeliner that can be used as a base and a powder eyeshadow plus a dual end applicator.

I love the silvery grey. Its quite shimmery and the colour translate very well - what you see is what you get. The formula is quite thick, as you can see from the photo above, two swatches is all u need. I've not have a chance to don a smokey eye - this is just awesome for that special day out in town!!!

3. ESSENCE XXXL Nudes Lipgloss (05 Forever Rose)  5ml -
RM 9.90/5ml

The ultimate gloss that keeps your lips shimmery and moisturised with Vitamin E and Panthenol (a natural, hydrating form of Vitamin B5) without leaving behind a sticky feeling.

I absolutely love this lipgloss!!! I know I have a lot of lipgloss at the moment - thanks to my November Wonderbox but this is just gorgeous.

4. SHAiRE London Silk Classic Collection Hair Perfume (Dry Shampoo) 60ml - RM35.90/60ml  (FULL SIZE)

The ultimate all-in-one hair product. Great for in between washes, it cleanses, conditions and revitalizes your hair, and repairs and strengthens hair roots. Furthermore it detoxifies hair, neutralises odour and effectively cleanse hair while soothing the scalp. Application is simple - just spray on both hair and scalp and massage gently.

This is relevantly new to me. I've never had a dry shampoo before, not even when I was in UK - I prefer washing it even in winter, is it an asian thing? I can't really tell how it smells, it has some sort of floral scent lingering after spraying but its not strong. I don't like having perfumed products on my hair but since the scent is not strong it should be alright. Maybe I should give it a try - been having excessive hair falls for the past few weeks. 

5. JUICE BEAUTY Blemish Clearing Serum 30ml  - RM185/50ml

A certified organic product by a US Department of Agriculture approved agency. It contains powerful hydroxy-acid complex of certified organic apple, lemon and raw cane sugar blended with antioxidants and co-enzyme Q10 to improve skin's texture for a fresher, radiant complexion.

I've heard so much good things about Juice Beauty, am so excited to try this. I love organic products.

My Verdict:

For the price of RM 19/month, I'd think this box is really worth your money and its the cheapest compared to the other beauty boxes. If beauty box is still a new concept to you - you can check out all the other beauty boxes that I had subscribed to HERE!!!

All in all this months product is quite a hit for me. I love all of it - which is quite rare. There's a good balance of skincare with beauty products i.e. for the face and nail. What about you? Do YOU think this months product is satisfactory?

Hugs & Kisses,

ARTY PROFESSIONAL exclusive bloggers event

Last month I had the opportunity to attend an exclusive blogger event hosted by both ARTY PROFESSIONAL Malaysia and STAGE. Thank you for a wonderful tea time event and also many thanks to JERINE for the personal invite!!!

This exclusive event was held at BUSABA HEAVENLY THAI, Bangsar Shopping Village

The set up of the venue was really nice though I do think its a tad bit dark for an event - its hard to take photos with the uneven lighting but not to worry there's so many goodies on the table that you'd forget about everything else!!!!

Here's a quick look at the beauty products available for us to try out on the spot:

They even had highly acclaimed and well known makeup artist and Creative Director of Arty Professional - P'Fee flown in from Bangkok to meet with the bloggers and conduct the makeup demo!!!!

ARTY Professional believes that "All makeup will look great, only if the base is perfect"

Lets have a more detailed look at their bestseller -

ARTY Professional eyelash

ARTY Professional nail polish and shatter 

Swatch of nail polish:

I absolutely love the texture for this nail polish. Its nude colour is really gorgeous. The formula was very easy to apply with its flat brush. In addition to that, it dries really fast and has a glossy finish.

Swatch of shatter:

The shatter is very smooth and very easy to apply compared to OPI's shatter but its drying time is longer than the nail polish above.

Vanity Trove Malaysia makes its debut for valentine's

Guess what appeared at my door today - YES its Vanity Trove Malaysia's debut trove and 


Just because February is a  festive season I had to wait another month to receive my box (I really didn't like the courier service people, they are kinda rude over the phone, I hope this can be changed next time).

Well  lets share the joy!!! In this months Vanity Trove I actually have my name on a sticky note on my box

and a personalised thank you card!!! I love the design on the card, the colour is soo bright and happy.

Just like its sister trove in Singapore, the beauty box comes with a product description card.

Group Photo of this months products LOL!!!!

1. WELLA SYSTEM PROFESSIONAL Smoothen Shampoo 30ml and

The Smoothen Shampoo cleanses and treats the hair structure to boost suppleness, perfectly control and smoothen hair structure making coarse hair a pleasure to comb.

The Smoothen Mask is the perfect treatment for hair. It detangles and smoothen hair leaving it feeling luxuriously supple.

I love Wella. My first hair dye was using Wella (in a salon) in UK and it was gorgeous!!! I do have a lot of hair care products at the moment, all from Lilacbox 2013 debut box and December 2012 Wonderbox but I can't have enough hair masks!!!! I have a love for masks :P

2. BENEFIT POREfessional 7.5ml

This product is silky and lightweighted. It can be used on its own or on top of makeup to reduce the appearance of pores and fine lines. Its translucent, oil free formula complements all skin tones and helps makeup stay put. It contains Vitamin E derivative, known to protect the skin from free radicals.

This is actually my first BENEFIT product. I've heard rave reviews about it and am really glad to have received it here. Will try it out soon!!!

3. DI PALOMO Tuscan Rose Hand and Body Lotion 25ml

A rich and indulgent hand and body lotion blended with moisturising olive and sweet almond oils, knowing for their skin soothing properties. Just apply on your body after shower to leave your skin soft, smooth and nourished.

At first I thought the scent was too strong and overpowering (without opening the cap) for a body lotion but then when I apply it on my hand - I fell in love!!!! I love that sweet succulent rose scent and I can't stop smelling my hand after applying it...oops that sounds wrong :P


This BB cream is formulated with plant stem cells to repair and keep your skin healty while covering imperfections. Its unique three tier cream design includes the milk lotion with wild ginseng, the concealer and the serum with Repair Complex CLR

OMG omg omg I get to try ORIKS!!! Thank you for bringing this brand VT, I'm so in awe right now.

5. ORIKS Wild Ginseng Stemcell Twister Essence 

The twister essence hydrates and nourishes skin with its soft and velvety texture. It helps reduces visible pores with its swirled silicon polymers and protect the skin from environmental pollution.

Another ORIKS product!!! This must be my lucky box.

6. B.Liv Off with Those Heads Blackheads Sebum Gel 

This product removes white heads and black heads gently and effectively. It keeps oil secretions under control and banishes all kinds of skin irritations.

This is a good product for me to try. I've been battling with white and black heads for so long now that sometimes I just want to give up. Hope this will be my miracle product.

The Voucher:

Overall, I find that I'm satisfied with the products but If I have to pay RM 60/month for this beauty box, IT should have more in it. Maybe more products or premium sized? Well since this is their debut trove, I'd say its quite a job well done. Unlike the December Singapore trove vouchers, the vouchers in this box are localised which also means it won't go to waste!!!!

Here's a peak at what's in their March and April beauty box
