Swissvita Energy Enhancer Cream

A few months back, I was lucky enough to win this Swissvita Energy Enhancer Cream from Swissvita Malaysia. Apparently this is one of their new release, a multi purpose beauty product that works as a sunblock, concealer and also as a base makeup. For people who are always on the go, this sounds highly promising.

The Swissvita Energy Enhancer Cream comes in a tube packaging, it's easy to control the amount that are being squeeze out thanks to it's narrow nozzle opening. 

It comes in a natural shade and blends easily on skin, without leaving any sticky-ness behind. Texture wise, it's creamy and non oily.

It actually gives a decent amount of coverage on my face. It managed to cover the redness around my nose so I get an overall even-looking toned on my face. The fact that Swissvita Energy Enhancer Cream works as a sunscreen with SPF 50+ is just the icing on the cake, as I get to reap the benefit of it being a concealer, base makeup and sunscreen in one go. Perfect for those who are always in the rush during the morning. 

The Face Shop x Coca-Cola Lip Tint

As a big fan of Coca-Cola, it's only natural I would get my hands on one of the limited edition item from The Face Shop x Coca-Coca recent collaboration, lol. Out of all the items, the one that caught my eyes is The Face Shop Coca-Coca Lip Tint in 01. Enjoy Sunshine.

When it comes to lip colours, the colour that I love the most on my lips is orange, which makes this Face Shop Coca-Coca Lip Tint in 01. Enjoy Sunshine the perfect choice.

I love the whole packaging of this lip tint. There's a retro feel to it and I love the swirly design on the handle. It's also super easy to apply, even if you're a klutz like me, lol. I love orange tone lip tint, but sometimes Korean lip colours can be too overwhelming and bright, luckily this lip tint has a natural muted orange tone, which suits me just fine. There's no tingly feeling on my lips nor does it makes my lips dry.

The only downside to this lip tint is it doesn't last that long. After a coffee or two, you're going to need to re-apply again. But if you do not mind that, do give this a try as the colour is really gorgeous. And if you're a big fan of Coco - Cola? Yes you should definitely get this too!

Anna Sui Fantasia

Anna Sui Fantasia was launched in 2017 and the fragrance was created by perfumer Jerome Epinette. The bottle features a majestic looking unicorn on top of a giant golden acorn. It's whimsical and magical, which is the reason why I bought a miniature bottle of it even though Anna Sui has never been my choice of perfume brand in the past due to their perfume short longevity.

  1. Top Notes
    • Pink pomelo, 
    • Pink pepper, Cassis
  2. Heart Notes
    • Raspberry Praline, 
    • Violet, Orange Flower, Pastel Orchid,
  3. Base notes
    • Golden cypress, 
    • Himalayan 
    • cedar

  4. The floral bouquet base is offset by undertones of Golden cypress and Himalayan cedar wood, giving Fantasia the aura of an enchanted forest.
  5. Fantasia’s woodsy and floral fragrance conjures up sensuality, femininity, and mystery. Sweet pink pomelo is blended with undertones of spicy pink pepper to create a complex and vibrant mix.

This is a nostalgic scent as it brings me back to my childhood memories. We used to grow Pomelo trees and every time their fruits begin to ripen, our home would be filled with their uplifting and aromatic citrusy scent. I haven't eaten any Pomelo for years, but I do remember the taste of it's pulpy flesh, which I would describe as neither too sweet nor it is sour. The same goes to this scent, it's the perfect balance between sweet and fresh. 

It starts off with a burst of citrus-like scent that's fresh and zingy but never too sharp. The raspberry praline adds a sweetness to it but even after a while, Pomelo is still the main star for this scent, steering the scent away from sticky sweet territory. It's very long lasting for an edt, even after shower, there's still faint traces of it's woody drydown that I could pick up from my skin.

If I have known this perfume falls under the floriental genre, I would have gotten it sooner. I have initially thought it to be another fruity floral that's marketed towards a younger crowd.Well now that I'd tried it, I find it to be quite appealing to any age group, irregardless of your opinion towards unicorn 😉
