Want a volume, plump & delicious lip? read Lipaddict event & review

Hello ladies, 

This is a very interesting post that I wanted to share with you so much. It's the sweetest pinky Blogger party that I ever experience. All these happened, many thanks to The Butterfly Projects Malaysia and Lipaddict Malaysia  for inviting me to this superlicious and beautiful event that all girl will admire. I think the winning part of it is the venue at Happ Cafe, the flower cafe at Petaling Jaya. (If you're nearby can check out them).

Lipaddict Tea Party with The Butterfly Projects Malaysia girls. A beauty brands collaboration with Beauty Blogger from The Butterfly Projects community.

First of all upon arrival, my eye can't run away from this superlicious instagramable desert table by party planner Joey.

Now let's get to know more about this award winning brands, Lipaddict from Iskin New York. You may not hear about this brand before so me too but it has been sometimes in Malaysia. Lipaddict is a lip gloss and it sounds like you'll get addicted to it once apply. I wonder what's make it too. It claims as lip treatment that has anti-aging effect, instant plump, instant healing and instant moisture. You'll then get addicted at the very first swipe!

'Lipaddict, the voluptuous lip plumper.'

Event started..

Emcee Dee and Sydney from The Butterfly Projects Malaysia.

Brand introduction by Lipaddict Malaysia.

MUA Fibiee demonstrate 3 wearable make up look for day, night and sleep using Lipaddict products.

All butterflies Blooger dressed pretty in pink.

Testing out the products..

Lipaddict has 12 gorgeous colours available from pink, orange, brown and red shade. See the swatches above. I find all the colours are very light pigmentation and it has the thick shine coated. There is one colourless for night treatment use. It said to heal dry and chapped lips while you sleep with #213 Jewel as bedtime lip treatment to repair and restore moisture on your lips.

Lipaddict formulation contains peptides, tripeptides and marine collagen that help to increase collagen production to restore the youthfulness and plumpness of lips. Vitamins C, E, K and organic plant extracts act as powerful anti oxidants for anti aging. Organic moisturizing oils such as castor oil, jojoba oil, apricot kernel oil, grape seed oil help to moisturize, soften, smoothen, condition and rejuvenate lips.

Lipaddict is free from parabens, sulphates, hormones, artificial fragrances, gluten, and toxic ingredients of any kind. Also Dermatologist tested and Cosmetics Scientist formulated to be safe and effective. So you have no reasons to feel worry about this brand.  

First of all the packaging has a pretty standard yet look luxury as you can see. Upon open up, it release a smell of strong yummy cooling just like chewing a bubble gum. Oh man I know why it could get addicted! The applicator has a flat shape that swipe on lips perfectly. You not need extra products taken out cause the texture is thick syrup like.

On my lips, I can feel the instant soothing effects (menthol used) and it tasted sweet (stevia plant extracts used). To be honest I don't really taste out my lip colour used on lips cause most of the time it taste bitter. The soothing effects last for a few minutes long before it got faded.

From the photo of before and after, Lipaddict does improves the appearance of lip volume and fullness, less visible fine lines and wrinkles without going through harsh injections. Gently conditions and hydrates to help lips smooth and soft. My lips look glossy and more healthy shine with non injectable lip plumper.

'Lipaddict is a needle free anti aging lip treatment.'

However, you may feel sticky sensation too. For me my hair could stick on my lips during windy day or if wearing under mask (working in the hospital) the products could transmittable. You'll not see the obvious stained colour cause of the light colour pigmentation. After some times, my lips feel less stickiness and I still could taste the sweetness on. Just that after each meal, you need to reapply again.

If you had lip filler or injection done before this, you can use Lipaddict to maintain and enhance your results too. Don't worry is a Dr recommendation too.

Each butterflies Blogger get to bring back new lip gloss to try. Thank you Lipaddict Malaysia.

To get a long term effects, continue application is highly recommended. From what Lipaddict claim, after a month you'll notice that your lips are not only healthier but more defined and hydrated as well. I have been using it on day and night for a few week nows. Currently my lips feel less chapped and I always like the smell, cooling effects and taste sweetness. I guess I'm addicted to it!!

Exfoliate your lips regularly and apply Lipaddict Night Treatment #213 Jewel before bed and wake up to smooth and voluptuous lips. Also during day time, apply Lipaddict on its own to achieve the best results or you can layer it with your favourite lip colour to get the look you desire. Make sure to keep a routine to ensure your lips are looking healthy and kissable.

Customer satisfaction results by Lipaddict:-
100 % reported improved lip condition
98 % felt it was good for everyday use
96% reported improved and healthier lips
80 % reported fewer fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth

Where to get Lipaddict products?
As I mentioned early, this products are less heard cause it doesn't sell at common platform. If you really want to get it, it selling at premium beauty saloon as listed at Klang Valley area. Price range is from RM 100+.

HA'LABO manage hair and scalp problem without burning pocket money

After experiencing a good hair treatment last time (you can check out my previous blog post), I'm kinda into really taking care of my hair and scalp now. I understand that the root of a beautiful hair is always comes from the healthy scalp. I also find that many new hair treatment saloon are seen especially at my own home town, Klang. Introducing first HA'LABO Hair and Scalp Management saloon at Bukit Tinggi, Klang.

Pronounce as HA'LABO (not Hada Labo), this company already has 17 years of professional hair services in Malaysia (previously they're well known for 101 Hair Care). This time HA'LABO has collaborated with SIRIM in creating an effective hair and scalp treatment technology (sounds like a WOW factor)! 

Alright after registration, consultation started right away by answering questionnaire, hair assessment and computerised scalp analysis. I still have the same problem which is congested oily scalp that is hardly to remove using routine hair care. The consultant gave professional explanation and suggested type of treatment that I should try which is HRS.

HRS is Herbatech Revival System. Using herbal extracted ingredients and biotechnology to revive the hair and scalp problem has scientifically proven effective. Meaning you are able to see positive result from this patented treatment technology with SIRIM certify (hope it doesn't sound complicated to you).

Herbatech Revival System consists of 4 step:-

Step 1 - Restore by deep cleansing to remove impurities from the scalp and eliminates excess sebum.

Step 2 - Rebuild using the first Multi Layer Cell Awakening Technology to inject nutrients and oxygen into scalp.

Step 3 - Renew when nutrients deeply penetrates into subcutaneous tissue to activate hair follicles and enhance hair root strength.

Step 4 - Reborn with this resuscitation technology. It will trigger the prolongation of new cells, promotes blood circulation to scalp and prevent inflammation.

Accupoint therapy first and I feel so good just like massage.

Dong Gui herbal essence used and I kinda feel like can be eaten.

Mixing herbal nutrients.

Applying on the scalp only.

  Steaming time about 30 minutes.

Washing off .

HA'LABO own hair and scalp products used.

Drying up and then a very super cooling serum applied.

Alright, the whole HRS scalp treatment process took about 2 hours. Computerised scalp analysis then repeated to see the effectiveness of the treatment. My scalp is clean with unclogged oil at hair follicle. The consultant also explained that my current problem might not be severe but with continuous treatment my scalp condition will improve. At that time, I'm very satisfied that they did a good job of what they claim to deliver. 

Now how about their pricing? I know HA'LABO may sounds like premium standard of hair and scalp treatment saloon (cause of the biotechnology used), it's not going to burn out your pocket money if you're a working adult. Price from RM 198 (not depending on your hair length). If you think they can manage your current hair and scalp problem, there're packages price that can be consider. But no worry or no pressure to sign up packages as the consultant is friendly and professional. I think they should keep up this good attitude towards customers. 

So if you would like to try HA'LABO hair and scalp treatment for the first time, they're giving awesome promotion price at RM 18 only when you mentioned my name 'Lee Yann' Blogger. I bet you'll like to try it out soon.

Bandar Bukit Tinggi 2,

HA'LABO also came out with their hair and scalp products for easy maintenance at home. I'm curently using their Herbal Cleansing Foam and Intensive Herbal Serum. The shampoo once pump is in a foam texture which is quite an ease for me (but you may required to pump more depending on your hair length). While the serum has a bit cooling sensation once applied to unclogged the hair follicle.

Lastly, I would like to specially thanks to HA'LABO for the opportunity collaboration and Steven team for professional photography provided for this blog post. Also a video is coming out soon.

How many types of mooncake you have try? ft Donutes Taiwanese Mooncake

When you see mooncake available means mid autumn is about to celebrate again every year just like celebrating Chinese New Year. It's one of the important festivals to celebrate with family and friends. I still remembered we'll make time to gather to have a good dinner and lastly enjoy the mooncake accompanied with tea under the moonlight at the yard decorated with lantern around. (Smiling)

I have a question for you, how many types of mooncake that you really have try before?? I know in Malaysia, we have this one very popular and common type of mooncake which is the chewy crust with red bean or lotus seed paste filling and sometimes egg yolk is included. In this modern time, many style of mooncake has been introduced such as the jelly type, snow skin, flaky crust and even the ice cream type.

I have tried out many types of mooncake before with different kind of crust, filling and style especially when visited others country such as China. Just that I never thought in my mind that not only the history remained but the taste of a good mooncake will remains in your mind too. Not forgettable mooncake always comes with a pretty packaging that is good to distribute as gift especially to family and business friends or you can keep it as jewelry box.

In this post, I have tried out a Taiwanese mooncake from Donutes Coffee and Cake Baking based in Malaysia.

Do you know, the Taiwanese most traditional mooncake found has flaky crust texture similar to puff pastry like. It's filled with sweetened red bean paste sometimes with mochi in the center. The most common traditional mooncakes coming from Taiwan are filled with mung bean or taro paste generally with a salted duck egg yolk in the mung bean mooncakes and either salted duck egg or a savory treat in the taro mooncakes. 

In the modern time, more trendy Taiwanese mooncakes are wide in variety that include low fat, lard free and ice cream versions. Popular modern flavors include green tea, chocolate, strawberry and tiramisu. (Info from Google).

The famous Taiwanese cafe shop, Donutes Coffee and Cake Baking serving in Malaysia baked the similar mooncake recipe. So you not need to travel far to get this pieces to try. There are actually 7 flavorable mooncake to try out. In the photo has 6 flavor shown only.

From right is Taro Yolk, Red Bean Mochi Yolk and White Lotus Yolk.

From left is Japanese Purple Potato Yolk, Blueberry and Matcha Yolk.

I have tried out each of them and let me tell you this is my first time experience new combination taste of it. The most flavor that I like is the Matcha Yolk, Taro Yolk and White Lotus Yolk. Somehow I still prefer my favourite type of mooncake with yolk. It doesn't taste over sweet or salted but a harmonious combination taste. Just that for this type of flaky crust you're advisable to cut into maximum 4 pieces only.

Available on 20th August 2018 onwards, each pieces selling at RM 6.50 and a whole box of 8 pieces price at RM 52 only. This is so much less pricey compared to the common mooncake available. The marble packaging is so much attractive and the size are very convenient to distribute as gifts. 

If you think to get it soon, find Donutes Coffee and Cake Baking at Puchong Jaya, Kota Damansara and Subang SS15. Happy celebrating Mid Autumn festivals with your family and friends.
