Review| 4u2 Love Me More Blushes in S11 You're my sunshine & M7 I kiss you




4U2


This brand is pretty much like the 3CE or Innisfree of Thailand. The most famous product range until now is the You're Mine lipstick range that comes in 18 colours shades under 6 colour tone categories. 

One thing that really intrigues me about this brand is that they put a lot of thoughts into the packaging and marketing their products and you can really see that from the pictures, product naming and packaging idea. For example, in the You're Mine lipstick range, every lipstick describes a person such as you're "My Ex," "My Hero," "My Little Devil," or "My Best Friend". On the other hand, in the Love Me More blush range, S-series (shimmer) starts with 'you' while the M-series (matte) starts with 'I', which can be something like #S0 "You Love Me" and #M0 "I Love You".


♥ 4U2 LOVE ME MORE BLUSH ♥

There are 20+ available colours that are suitable for all skin colours and styles. There are matte and shimmer formulas with new formulas that are not like anything that has ever existed. The texture is very delicate while the colours are super pigmented.

"Super smooth powder blush. Intense colours in matching matte and shimmer shades. Longlasting too. So rush to blush! By 4u2, of course!

Review | Etude House Mini Two Match Nuts & Fruits - Almond, Dried Jujube, Hey Hazelnut, Fig w/ Magnetic Holders





These lippies were purchased during my October Birthday Haul on Althea last year. At that time, it was Autumn season and Althea had these on their new arrivals but I think they didn't have the magnetic holders until later on which I purchase during mid-December. 

(Funny story: I wanted to purchase the magnetic holders around the same time (October) and I had 30% discount from Etude House for my birthday but the saleslady from Etudey House Sunway Pyramid branch refused to sell me the magnetic holders, which is why I only got them now (through Althea). Also, buying from Etude House is RM11 while buying from Althea is RM6. Not to mention, Althea has more discounts than Etude House and I've got enough extra store credits so these magnetic holders are practically free. Actually, the lippies were free too.)

"How about a pinch of hazelnut colour in this mellow autumn? Mix nut colours for crunchy fun and various colour options you can choose. Feel the soft pigment texture as if it is finely ground with a sieve!"

Shop Luv| An Althea Wishlist for Santa Althea & Recommendations! 2018 Edition

I love shopping! Well, mostly window shopping. See, I always go around to check out new stuff and remembering prices. Althea, among many local online stores, is surprisingly the cheapest and most convenient. Honestly, there are so many things that I want and the amount grows a little bigger each year. However, there are a few things that have been catching my eyes but I'm always not ready to buy them because they feel very luxurious to me.

Top 10 Wishlist!


Etude House

Play Colour Eyes - Caffeine Holic

RM59.00 | Shop

I was actually very tempted to buy this especially when it is so much cheaper than buying in-store and on Hermo. It's from the most recent release called Coffee To Go with 4 lipsticks and a blusher but the palette always catch my eyes. I thought I have some light nude colours already but I'm kind of tempted to try their burnt orange and their shimmers.

How to Young Adult 101 | Don't want crying babies. Don't want crying meemies.

Before we start, I just want to say that: this post is long. Like, really long. But don't be discouraged because you won't find information like this in many places. I would suggest you sit down and spend a few minutes to read through everything. Also, I would highly discourage screen-through reading or fast-reading.

Sex!  Ew!

Oh, what a vulgar, vulgar word to see for conservative people. This is a taboo for most older people but it shouldn't be. Truth be told I'm not a staunchly religious person nor am I someone who finds the act of consensual intimacy disgraceful (except adultery). I was brought up in a semi-old fashioned family but I allow myself to learn and be open-minded. To me, this isn't about who's more sexually active or not. I don't see the relation between "using birth control" = "very sexually active" because even those who don't use any birth control can be very active too but that's really not the point in this blog post.

In other words, it's not about who's a whore or a player. I really don't care how sexually active you are because that is your business. Other people shouldn't be concerned about it and they should mind their own f-king business if they do. The point of this blog post is about protecting yourself from unexpected (or unwanted) stress, burden and fatigue from every single aspect: financially, mentally and physically.

In this world, everyone has their very own opinion about this, combined with their own culture and religion. See, I do respect all religious teachings and I understand that people may have old-fashioned thinking. However, this blog post is dedicated to those who are (mentally) mature and open-minded, regardless of their race, culture and religion. (It means you should leave if you're only here to judge or laugh. Pregnancy prevention isn't a laughing matter. If you want something to laugh at, then you can consider laughing at your own life because you are immature.) In this place, we respect everyone's opinions and decisions but we will not stand for hate, discrimination and judgmental comments. However, if you're a medical student/doctor with more knowledge about this, please do let me know what you think about the information. I am up for corrections.

Also, be a dear and share this with your friends, okay? 💖
An unexpected pregnancy is sometimes a blessing but not all the time, especially when a couple can't handle the stress and burden. So do feel free to share this and save a life.

Why I'm writing this


Now it's hard to get complete information because *sigh* it really isn't easy to look for information in Malaysia as it would be in America. Many gynaecologists don't have the proper platform for people to inquire and usually, people need to visit them by appointment just to consult them on a few things instead of actually getting treatment. Sure, I could also ask the nurses but they usually give me short answers with an annoyed tone. I guess I'm not worth their 'precious' time *sigh*. Most of the local professionals in this industry don't actually contribute information on the internet so that also made things harder to find on Google.

When I had discussed this topic with my peers, many of them were baffled at how much information they've missed. My friends are all mature people. Some had already ventured into the journey of intimacy, some are having thoughts about it and the rest are innocent virgins that hadn't made attempts to obtain any knowledge. Majority of them questioned why it's so hard to find information online and that our government's sex education programs don't cover enough information.

I still remember the two sessions, one during my Standard 6 and another during high school. They had only briefly covered about condoms, IUD and spermicide. Telling us sex is bad and that we're too young for it but never actually explained why. I still remember one of the disciplinary teachers had told us not to kiss because "once you've started it, you can't stop and then you'll get pregnant." I'm laughing now as I typed that because I still remember how serious he was trying to sound. It's true that many youngsters have no self-control but not all, ya know. Other than that, they've hardly helped in reducing teen pregnancy, at least for the people of my age.

I've heard about so many people marrying at a young age since I was 16 years old because they've got (someone) knocked up. A few were divorced within a year or so, simply because they figured that they were too young when they got married. So now, they "want someone new / freedom." Dick move, I know, which is why I'm writing this blog post: to try to avoid bad endings like those scenarios, not just for myself but for other people as well.
