CCM NEW Flat Top Foundation Brush

Hey, girlfriends!

I guess I really have been practicing MIA these days. My apologies. Work has been so, so hectic and I am caught up with so many things these days.

Anyway, to cut the long story short, I am going to review the new CCM Flat Top Foundation Brush.

I received this brush in the mail more than a month ago and was thrilled. I couldn't wait to try it out because CCM told me that this flat top foundation brush is the upgraded version of their previous brush and they have promised a better quality brush!

The brush comes with a brush net, something a lot of us would appreciate :)

This time around, CCM has really done a good job on the whole package. Comparing to their previous flat top brush, the new one is denser and of course, the CCM logo is imprinted instead of pasted on the handle.

I have practically spoiled the old one but unwilling to throw it away because I had loved it so much. I guess you can pretty much see that the bristles on the older brush are coming out by now. Thank you for serving me well throughout the last two years or so.

Now, the first thing that I did upon taking the brush out of the net was this!

I went crazy over the soft bristles. It feels so, so dense and at the same time, soft! Right at the time, I knew I would be enjoying this brush more!

Well then, let's take a look at my two-cent.

What I like about the new brush

  1. Soft and dense bristle :)
  2. Sleek, classy and timeless packaging
  3. Travel-friendly due to its short handle
  4. The brush picks up product very well - blending is hassle-free!
  5. Application is effortless, giving smooth finish without creating foundation streaks!
  6. Easy to get to the sides of the nose :)
  7. Affordable and available locally in Malaysia - it's RM55 only!

Honestly, what is there not to like about this brush? I mean, from the packaging to the quality of the brush, there is nothing else I could ask for especially since I have been meaning to look for a good foundation brush for quite some time now.

One last picture at the performance of the brush.

I guess with this brush, I can safely say that, CCM, you've done a good job!

Head over to Colours Cosmetics Malaysia's website to get this brush now!

Life is a roller coaster

August has been the most hectic month for me this year. Most probably it's because I have been traveling a lot during that month so, I practically had no time to update my blog at all.

Talking about traveling - yes, I went back to KL for 5 days and 4 nights just because I've really been missing that place so much.

This time around, I have really enjoyed my stay and I totally acted touristy because for once, I did not want to feel like owning the place. In fact, I just wanted to be a tourist. Well, that kinda explains all the touristy pictures.

My brother was being exceptionally nice this time around and he treated us for a great dinner at Lemon Garden @ Shangri-La Hotel.

The main attraction for the buffet dinner was the big lobsters!

I couldn't stop eating!

That was the moment when I suddenly realized #dietfailed again. LOLX! Life is cruel - at the time you are thinking of losing weight, everyone will tempt you!

Even the desserts were exceptionally nice over there!

Again, I took a lot of touristy pictures at the hotel just because it's Shangri-La! LOLX! Don't worry, I will not be showing you all the pictures :P

Or maybe, one is enough?

Besides that, I also met up with my best friends in KL during my short stay there. I was so, so happy to see them!

When I saw them, all of a sudden, it struck me, why did I make the decision to return to my hometown to work when my best friends are in KL and my life pretty much revolves in KL? Haih... sometimes, right, I just feel like I've made a wrong decision to move back.

Well, that's a story for another day...

So, after coming back from KL, the next day, I flew back to KL to transit to Bangkok. I know it sounded crazy but well... we do crazy things sometimes.

My traveling partners!

 I was so happy to go back to Platinum Mall, seriously! There are just so many things to browse around in that mall and everything is so, so cheap over there!

If you'd ask me, I'd tell you Bangkok would be the place you'd have to visit if you plan to shop until you drop. Everything in Bangkok seems so cheap!

Even the people there are friendly!

Finally, went I went to Chatuchak this time around, I got to try out the infamous coconut ice-cream!
The ice-cream was divine!

Please don't judge me!

I have never tried anything that tasted better than that ice-cream!

On top of that, this time around, I made it to Pattaya as well. I remember, my girlfriends and I actually thought of going there in 2009 but that time, we were unable to do so due to the riot thing going on in Pattaya.

The beach was seriously beautiful and heavenly. I wish I could retire there one day.

Perhaps, I should consider marrying a Thai.


Finally, traveling ended at the end of August! So many things have happened during that month and I finally came to understand yes, a lot of things happened for a reason. For the reason, one has to be thankful that he or she is still breathing.

Sure enough, sometimes, things may seem hard and you feel like giving up.

Before you give up, think back on the reason why you have embarked the journey - pray hard for God's assistance and guidance.

50 First Dates :)

Pretty much reminds me of the movie that I really enjoyed watch years back.

Honestly, when it comes to dating, I guess I am pretty much a rookie because I don't remember having pleasant dating experiences and that sums up why I am still unattached up to this very day.

Whatever the reason is, we are gonna complete this tag today!

1. How long does it take you to get ready for a date?

I would say most probably, I would need about an hour? Well... a girl gotta do what she's gotta do and I am a firm believer in first impression counts.

Once I introduced a friend to my cousin and it ended up disastrous because my friend met my cousin without dressing up at all - a baggy tee with pants plus big, old thick glasses. My cousin told me, "If you're gonna introduce any girl friends to me, please let her know that the basic of all respect in the world is to dress up when you're meeting a person for the first time."

So, girls, please take your time and doll yourself up a little, alright?

2. Whats your idea of a perfect first date?
a) Dinner
b) Drinks
c) Cinema
d) Adventurous dates

I would go for B - drinks. I don't really feel comfortable going for dinner on a first date. If we are comfortable over a cup of tea or coffee, I guess dinner will follow :)

3. What would you gravitate more towards to wear on a date...
a) Jeans
b) Trousers
c) Skirt
d) Dress

Dress all the way, baby - I love dresses. After all, remember my belief on first impression counts?

Dresses can make you look 100 times sweeter and more innocent!

I only dress down when I get to know my date more through time. Then, I would most probably opt for shorts, jeans or tees.

Girls, dress to impress!

4. On the date of your choice what makeup would you wear
a) Girl next door
b) Smokey and sexy
c) Bold lip
d) Brights

I love make-up but for a date, I would easily go for my first look, smokey and sexy.

I am a firm believer that it's either you go big or you go home. Unless my date doesn't really like seeing me with make-up, I will tone it down to girl next door. 

On going out with make-up, well... the same theory applies - if I've gotten to know him, why not?

5. Your date says you have half an hour to be ready what do you do?

If that is a first date - I won't be going if I am not given sufficient time to get ready.

If that is not a first date, I would consider going out with pajamas on, if that doesn't embarrass him.

6. Your date asks for the bill, do you...
a) Offer to pay - with actual meaning to pay
b) Make a fake fuss - with no intention of paying
c) Expect him to pay straight away

I do not expect people to pay for me but if he's gentleman enough, why not?

Regarding bill, if the guy does not even 'offer' to pay and revert the bill to me, no thanks, mister, we are not seeing each other anymore after today.

7. It's time to say goodbye you really like your date do you...
a) Wave
b) Hug
c) Kiss on the cheek
d) Peck
e) Full on smooch

Most probably I would like a hug - I love hugs and occasional kisses but for first date, no thanks... let's just say we would save the best for the last.

I guess that's it about the tag.

This is seriously not the best time to complete this tag because I am deeply affected by quite a number of things right now.
