The Butterfly Project: Unboxing the Birthday Bag

Yeay! It's time for the UNBOXING!!
I know you guys will be soooo curious like "where did chu' get that from?!". You can read all about it in my previous post on the The Butterfly Project Malaysia's 4th Birthday party here.
In today's topic, I will revealing what is in THE BIRTHDAY BAG with some mini reviews! Seriously, I am as excited as you are (eventhough I can't make huge facial expression in this face mask that I am currently having on) and if you have laid your hands on some of the products, let me know your thoughts as well!
Btw, the upcoming review pictures are taken with borrowed iPhone 6S plus. Now I can relate on why people say they take beautiful pictures oo(>A< ) Need to save up for better quality shots.

The first one is none other than the Unicorn Eye Makeup Brushes. I have been eyeing this set for ages but have been postponing it due to internal judgement between "I need THAT!!" while another internal voice goes "But you already have 3 sets of makeup brushes!" FML.
 To have these magicalpurplepastelhornsofamagesticunicorn is like OMFTHANKGOD moment
As you can see, there are a total of 10 eye brushes in this makeup set and each of them is unique in it's own functionality and color. The brushes are absolute light-weight and bristle are super soft. I have not experience any fall out bristle since the day I started using them.

No unicorns are harmed in the makeup brushes production and you can find them at Wanderlustthings.com at only RM89.00! Of course, they have other magical stuffs available for selection as well, for instance the Mermaid Tail blanket, Harry Potter Wand Eye Makeup Brushes and the Cupcake Handbag. Just too adorable "o(>A<)o"

I have not heard of Orchid Cosmetics before but if DaintyDashBeauty goes fangirling over these Matte Suede, they must be good XD I just got to know not long ago that this is a Halal beauty brand created by a local blogger, so more of the reason to support!
These liquid lipsticks comes in 4 tones (Left to Right: Turnt, Mars, Vibes and Blush) and have this creamy light texture at the same time. And yes, they are in my favourite matte!
If I need another reason to fall for them, it's would be the pigmentation and smudge-aka-transfer proof formula. No more "oops" kiss stains or "excuse me" washroom moments to touch up.
They are available at RM39 each and use this code "ORKID5" at checkout to enjoy RM5 off  ** Valid till 30th June 2017.

Thank you Kracie for this Hadabisei Face Mask! I have tried one so far (too many stocking up of facemask at home :P) and it has so much of serum in it! Containing hyaluronic acid and royal jelly for dry skin type, this extra serum moisturising skin mask delivers hydration to deep layers of the skin. These are valued RM48.70 (for 5 pieces).

Clinelle decided to join in the surprise party and pampered us like princesses; from skin care to a trimmed figure! Starting with Clinelle UV Defense SPF 50 that soothes, hydrates and prevents early signs of aging caused by exposure to harmful UV rays. Formulated with nourishing benefit of hydrolysed pearl peptide and other natural plant extracts (aloe vera, chamomile and rice), this broad spectrum sunscreen also helps with minimizing clogged pores, blackheads, breakouts and sensitive skin. (30mls - RM48.70)
Keeping hydration is the vital step in having spotless skin. With Clinelle PureSwiss Hydracalm Sleeping Mask (60mls - RM75.90), this  mask keeps the skin cool and hydrated by forming a layer of water that gives instant hydration. I have never tried any sleeping mask that gets absorped so fast into the skin and instantly fell in love with it, which makes sense why the Clinelle PureSwiss Hydracalm Sleeping Mask is one of the best seller. It also contains lavender, lemon, citrus and chamomile extract which is beneficial in keeping calm and getting a better sleep.
And hail to the slimmer silhouette. Clinelle Hot Body Shapper Cream (170mls at RM89.90) comes equipped with metal roller balls to massage away unsightly cellulites. The 3x Super Strength cream is rich in natural active ingredients derived from Organic Brown Algae extracts, that not only trims body shape but also functions as melano-minimizer for fairer skin. Although it contains formula of SenseHot thermal action that warms up the skin for faster absorption of active ingredient, I personally do not feel any heat besides having my limbs sensitized from all the rollings XD. However, I am looking very much forward to less visible cellulites.

The Pax Moly Aloe Vera Soothing Gel will certainly guarantee a "Chok Chok" skin for a very long time as it comes in a very large tub. Enriched with Aloe Vera from Jeju Island, beneficial vitamins and amino acids extracted from plants, this soothing gel is suitable to be applied on whole body providing hydration without leaving any gressy residue.
It can also be mixed with cosmetic products to boost the moisture that your skin needs and most importantly, No paraben, no artificial coloring and no benzophenone!

Better things come in a pair! This brightening set from Neesya contains a Brightening Enzymatic Refiner (75mls) and also the Brightening Gel Cleanser (100mls). The Brightening Enzymatic Refiner is a creative product that revives dull skin without abrasion as most of the products contains scrub, which can be rather harsh to sensitive skin. I have done a detailed review on this duo (as well as other ranges from Neesya) so you can read more about them on the products hyperlinks above :)
Muslim friends will be glad to know Neesya's porducts are all Halal patent.

Now for the Mamonde family! You should know by now Mamonde is one brand of it's kind that uses floral extracst in the beauty process. The Floral Hydro Mist 120mls (RM49) holds one of the finest mist I have lay my hands upon, with instant cooling and moisturising of the skin with Daffodils extracts. I use it when in an air-conditioned and sometimes over my makeup. Just love the sweet floral scent that comes with it ❤️
The Mamonde Long Lasting Liquid Eyeliner (4mls - RM39) comes in No.1 Black, perfect for winged cat eyes. Perfectly smudge-proof after drying (I placed heavy enphasize in making sure my eye products are tear-proof), this eyeliner will hold through your date regardless rain or shine. Mamonde is also now available on 11street!

It's 1028 Big Eyes Magnifier Mascara! I had the chance to try out this mascara before the birthday party and I must say this one should be on every girls' mascara list. Although it is of liquid mascara (meaning it can mess your makeup a little until it dries completely), it is completely waterproof and tear-proof! The light formula also allows full coating of each lashes without weighting them down. Want to see the magnified effect from this mascara? Stay close to my Youtube channel for a makeup tutorial next week!
Valued at RM59.90, it is now available at selected Watsons outlet.

The next holy grail from the bag would be the Pocket Shadow Palatte Blooming by W.Lab!
This palatte is created with various flower extract, creating beautiful natural colors well... like flowers. Have I mentioned this palatte comes in the perfect coral shades? *inner girl scream* So many ideas running through my mind right now, can't wait to share with you guys ❤️

If you like this palatte just as much as I do, check them out on Althea Korea. (Original price is RM200 but they are having promo now at only RM90, like seriously?!)

I am so greatful to be introduced to the Adidas Climacool Shower Gel (250mls- RM10.90)  and Deodorant (35mls- RM4.99). I was expecting some cool minty sensation after usage (from the product name Climacool) but my hope was lived short. However after using them, I was won over. It kept my skin perspire free (just with the shower gel) and refreshed with the fresh capsules that activates with movement! I can't get over the fresh fragrance that is released by gentle rubbing of the skin XD
Definitely on my restock list !

So glad to have Dolly Wink in the birthday bag!
I did a review on Dolly Wink Liquid Eyeliner in Deep Black by Koji back then and it is still my favorite eyeliner due to it's long lasting and dark pigmentation that does not fade easily with sweat, water, tear and sebum. You can read up the review here.
This time's Dolly Wink is in Super Black and the design is  just to pretty to use (I may take sometime to muster up my courage). Reminds me classic Victorian designs that often appear in anime series ❤️  Do you know this eyeliner contains beauty essence such as swertia japonica extract, panthenol and hyaluronic acid for skin nourishment? They even have silk extract ! ❤️

Dolly Wink Liquid Eyeliner WP Super Black at RM69.90

I have created photobooks in the past from different apps and by far, Photobook Malaysia creates one of the best photobooks. By comparing the books from different websites, the reason why I prefer Photobook Malaysia's over other brands because the build material is sturdier with thicker pages and good quality finishing (I always keep mine to matte lamination) at a reasonable price.

(The Simple Book 6x6 Hardcover 20pgs for RM79)
The bookmaking software is easy to manuever around even for beginners, with wide collection of ready-made book templates that suits every occasions. Thank you Photobook Malaysia giving us the chance in keeping memories in the form of photos and photobook.

Last but not least, a big thank you to Glitz & Glam Studio Booth for providing us such beautiful backdrop and the Photobox prints in capturing of Butterfly Projects's 4th birthday event at it's best. video
The lighting is just too perfect (you should see how flawless our skin became) and we had fun with the creative interactive props.

[EVENT] The Butterfly Project's Turns 4 Party!

The Butterfly Project is finally 4! *blows trumpet*
Together as a family, butterflies and moths gathered last May the 20th at the Hello Deer, Uptown Petaling Jaya.

I started joining The Butterfly Project during it's 2nd year and never had I felt the such close 'family' bonding within the blogger community. I was a duckling back then; foreign to this new society and yet, The Butterfly Project manage to make me feel at home. The founder, Tammy went great distance to keep our minds active, ways to improving our skills constantly and at the same time, encourage us to be beautiful inside out in the name of Bloggers.

A word from the founder, Tammy.
"It's been a great fun 4 years curating activities and events for our members to join. Money isn't the goal of our community. It's building bridges, uncovering hidden talents, growing and giving love to the community of beauty & lifestyle bloggers in Malaysia. If you don't know, I've social anxiety issues since I was a child. The thought of meeting new people, talking to them, sends chills to my spine. I started blogging because I wanted to expr...ess myself on the keyboard, sharing my experiences and reviews. What's new, what's great, and what I love. Blogging changed me but when I reached the peak of my blogging life, I wasn't happy with what I saw. I stopped chasing stars & I started thinking, let's make it a better place"
Her words is an inspiration to all of us and I could not express enough of gratitude.
Thank you, Mama-san! *hug tight tight*

The event's theme was pastel, so everyone looked very beautiful in soft color outfits and creative makeup! At the event, we were given the opportunity to write a message to our beloved group the Papan Hitam style!


There are so many delicious Insta-worthy food served that day! Thank you Mama-san for keeping us fed despite so many activities going on! <3
P/s: The birthday cake is so beautiful, I wished my baking skills will reach there someday ><
 

 Dee Leonard and founder, Tammy Lim gave a welcoming speech and since some of us are new to this group, each butterflies and moths introduced themselves so everyone get to know each other better.


Following after the ice breaking was a short and compact briefing on the highlight of the event, Unboxing the Beauty Bag! I swore many of us had a difficult time in concentrating *cover eyes* XD

Hello to the girl who sits opposite of me, Maple :D

There was a photobooth set up as well for us to play with. At the end, we got to bring home the photos taken with our friends. I must say they did a very good job with the pastel backdrop and the lighting is so perfect, it makes everything beautiful!
 
Thank you  GNG Studio Booth!


Top 10 winners for the Best makeup contest.
