Anyway, I want to win a tablet myself too so here's how Maybank2u has served me:

1. Online Shopping

... loads of them!!

I've been using Maybank2u for paying my online shopping hauls for about 2 years nao. Previously, I always have to go to the bank to deposit payment, which means I have to drive to the bank then queue up for my turn which can take forever sometimes *roll eyes*

Now everything's just a few clicks away~!! So convenient!

Just last week I've went online shopping again using Maybank2u and my hauls just arrived yesterday evening ♥

2. Paying bills and pre-paid

Then back in uni days when I was still using pre-paid, I've always topped up via Maybank2u, sometimes helping my roomie to do so too v(^ᴗ^,)

And of course, paying the water/electric bills when my friends and I are too lazy to go to the post office.

3. Exclusive Deals on Groupon

Sometimes, my friends and I would purchase products(mostly) and services on Groupon and being a Maybank2u user means I get the perks of ADDITIONAL discounts leh!

How awesome is that?

Recent hauls~!

Another random post on my hauls. Went shopping recently and bought a couple of tops~! Added more colors into my wardrobe yayyyy~(≥v≤/)

this month's hauls (^ᴗ^人)♥

Just started wearing mah flip flops and realized it's too striking. Hahaha.

As usual, got myself ViVi and Ray magazines. Love this month's covers for both mags, they're so pretty!!
ViVi&Ray English December '12 Issue 
mah favorite mags~ ♥

Ever since ViVi M'sia was launched in June 2012, I've been religiously purchasing them both every month. I've only found out about Ray English later the same month but it has been my favorite. Ray's got more girlish and colorful coordinates, which have been a great inspiration for my gal wardrobe. But I love them both le. So much that I've given up on purchasing other local mags which mostly features tons of advertisements:/

Have you bought ViVi or Ray mag? Are you a ViVi gal or Ray gal? Or both? (,^v^,)

Review: SilkyGirl's Perfect Cover Concealer

This time I'm writing a review about some of the stuff in mah makeup bag v(^v^,) Here's my SilkyGirl's Perfect Cover concealer~!

Silky Girl Perfect Cover Concealer 

Silky Girl Perfect Cover Concealer

Silky Girl's one of the most local brand with really affordable yet with satisfactory quality cosmetics in Malaysia. What attracted me to get this concealer's how it comes in a small twist tube(besides affordability). So convenient! Plus, for only RM14.90, you don't have to worry about burning a hole in your pocket.

Silky Girl's Perfect Cover Concealer 

twist tube concealer~ how convenient!

This concealer is available in 2 shades_01 Light and 02 Medium. I got mine in 02 Medium shade 'cuz I find the first shade way-y too light for my skin tone and fear it made the troubled spots looked obvious instead of concealing them...


2 shades available~

Here's the swatch for 02 Medium on my hand. It's looks quite light on my skin here but I find it just perfect~! The texture's creamy sort and glides effortlessly when applying. It easily blends into the skin too with just a couple gentle patting.

swatch on my hand!

OK, so the verdict? This concealer's totally worth the price~! It works really well in covering up uneven skin tone such as dark circles and actually covered up some small pores too. Well not entirely, but works good enough to. What's more, it lasted for a good couple of hours.

On the downside, this concealer doesn't do much in concealing pimples but simply reducing the redness of the pimple.

I read a couple of other reviews and found that some who tried this concealer found noticeable tiny lil' 'dots' appearing on their skin after putting it on. I'm guessing it's because of the concealer drying up and clumping up together. As for me, I've don't have such problem maybe 'cuz I've got a combination skin type so the concealer doesn't dries up on my skin.

Overall, I must say, I'm pretty satisfied with this buy. I don't see any need to get a replacement any soon, this concealer's pretty lasting. But I would actually buy it again 'cuz it's just so convenient. On days when I'm too lazy to put on foundation_and when I need to look good, fast_ I'll just simply go with this on my entire face(≥vO)
