Beauty: Mentholatum Introduces New J-Beauty Makeup Series: SUGAO!

I've recently seen and heard about the latest makeup series, launched by Mentholatum in leading pharmacies, SUGAO! The brand denotes bare, natural concept for young women to experience soft and easy to apply makeup which suits all skin types. 

SUGAO aims to boost natural beauty through their makeup products, and enhance the vibrant and energetic side of female through its young and modern product designs. I love their packaging and their product really attracts me.


Here are the products I decided to try out:

FROM LEFT (Sugao Lip Tint, Sugao Air Fit CC Cream, Sugao Cheek and Lip)


SUGAO Air Fit CC Cream Pink Bright Moist (01 Pure Natural) // RM 69.90


I find that the texture is really nice, almost like a souffle fluffy texture which spreads pretty evenly on my face. It has a silky, dewy finish that brightens up my complexion. You only need to squeeze a little of the product and apply it evenly on the entire face.

Coverage is light and can be used for your daily makeup regime. It doubles as a makeup base as well and I like how it blurs out my visible pores, fine lines and rough uneven skin tone. It is comfortable for long wearing hours and keeps my skin hydrated throughout the day, without feeling oily.


SUGAO Lip Tint in Apricot Pink // RM 45.90


 The applicator is soft and has the right angle for easier application of the product on your lips. I love my lip tints and I have invested a lot in lip tints previously. However, so far, I have never found any product which I particularly liked until I tried this SUGAO lip tint.

The colour was a little too orange initially, but I find that after you apply it for a few minutes, it turns into a soft pretty pink. It moisturises my lips and I like it that it is non sticky at all!

It doesn't smudge as long as you don't use a tissue to wipe the product away. I find that I only need to reapply once after a whole day out when I use this long lasting lip tint. 


SUGAO Cheek & Lip Active Orange  // RM 59.90


I'm not a big fan of blushers and I usually don't put anything on my cheeks in my normal makeup regime. I decided to try this out because this product comes with a 2-in-1 hybrid formula which apparently blends easily, just by using fingertips.

Personally, I like its light texture and how it is not too bright on my cheeks. To create a cute and lovely look, I only used minimal of this product and blended it in circular motion around both cheeks area.



Love the final look after trying out all the products!

The SUGAO makeup range is now available at selected Watsons outlet.

Health: Focus Point Launches World Sight Day 2017 'Make Vision Count' @ Sunway Pyramid

'MAKE VISION COUNT'

Leading vision care group, Focus Point has recently launched its World Sight Day 2017 'Make Vision Count' campaign on 12th October 2017. This community service campaign aimed to educate the public about the alarming rise in vision impairment and visual problems worldwide. It is important to recognise these conditions and problems from a young age, as our visual sense is vital and essential for daily function.



This global initiative works to raise awareness on preventable blindness. There is an estimate of about 285 million people living with poor vision and blindness. Just imagine how so many of these cases are actually preventable through proper eye care, eyeglasses and education. In fact, a shocking 80% of the world's blindness could be prevented!


According to President & CEO of Focus Point Holdings, Dato' Liaw Choon Liang, this event is meaningful as it synergizes with the company's core value and business model of enabling people to see better. This is the 6th year that Focus Point is organizing this event and they are excited to be part of raising global awareness on the importance of vision care and eye health.



'Make Vision Count' brings forth the message that preventable blindness is a problem that can be easily tackled by providing proper education and useful information to the general public. This campaign is presented with a fresh and colourful manner with many exciting games such as 'Snap A Vision' contest which aims to enable all to appreciate the gift of sight.



The Creatif Academy of Art & Design was invited to help bring the theme to life by creating a 3D eye sculpture to showcase the realities of eye care.

Daily: Feel the Fear @ Nights of Fright 5, Sunway Lagoon

In conjunction with Halloween this October, the annual festival of fear is back! Nights of Fright 5 (NOF 5) which is hosted by Sunway Lagoon has opened its gates of horror with the flag off of its Nights of the Undead Run. More than 1,300 participants ran for their lives to the finishing line by completing obstacles such as Outbreak, Spider Web and Survivor at various stations. This celebration will be held till 31st October and Sunway Lagoon will be the gathering hub for ghosts, ghouls, and sinister creatures. It unveils the most outrageous, eerie, hair-raising haunted houses in the nation. If you are easily frightened, think twice before you enter.





Check out the decorations for the Nights of Fright 5! They never fail to amaze me :)



I got to try out the 'Devil's Blood' drink which comes in a very cute syringe!




We were entertained by performance by the ghosts and ghouls of Sunway Lagoon before the launching ceremony

“Nights of Fright is one of the most significant events in our calendar and the whole team is committed to improve and make it more exciting every year. We have new attractions infused in this year’s installment with different scare levels for all and we assure you that no guest will leave without screaming! Bring your loved ones to enjoy a night out at NOF 5 or simply for them to face their fears!” said Sean Choo, General Manager of Sunway Lagoon.  

Lynton V. Harris, Chairman & CEO of The Sudden Impact! Entertainment Company said, “The team injected a slice of true events and myths inspired by Asian horror stories to create a close representation of the attractions. This year, we have Oujia, The Island of the Dolls, Dystopia and many more for the timid to the thrill junkies! The festival is scarier than before so come by as this is biggest and most anticipated event of the year!”

Start to feel the fear by experiencing THE ISLAND OF THE DOLLS, a replica of an accidental tourist attraction in Mexico which became famous due to a tragic disaster. This experience was something different from the previous NOFs as there were scary looking dolls everywhere which will haunt you everywhere you walk!



There is a saying that when you die, everything grows dark around the edges until there was only darkness. Prepare yourself with death at DAY OF THE DEAD IN 3D where you will be exposed to the phenomenon of life of the dead. Stay alert as those with low spirit might be spotted by the dead souls and they would always want some company in the realm of the dead.


Further heighten the chill in your bones at OUIJA by gathering around to experience a scary séance in the mysterious and long abandoned attic of Mr. E.J. Bond Esquire’s home. Personally, this was my favourite haunted house out of all the other because my adrenaline was bursting through the roof throughout the whole time. It was made to look like an attic and there were so many element of surprises through the entire journey! This is a must visit!

Overrun with squalor, human misery, oppression, disease and overcrowding, haunted hospitals have one thing in common: ghosts of the past lingering in their halls. DYSTOPIA exposes you to a horrifying experience of patient treatments that are frightful to hear, daunting to see in the year 2147.



All within Scream Park, amp up your fear levels and call up the GHOSTBUSTERS while wandering through the iconic Firehouse HQ, and some infamous ghost locations such as Aldridge Mansion and Seward Street Subway. Then, move on to PONTIANAK vs POCONG, a bloody affair of a lover returning as a Pontianak and unfaithful husband as a Pocong – seeking what is rightfully theirs in a classic battle of evil vs evil. Meet the scariest movie characters of all time who will come to life and celebrate a night of horror at HORRORWOOD STUDIOS. If you think you are fearless, enter the ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE with simply no escape once you step foot into the land of the undead who will show you the worst of fears!

Re-live your childhood nightmares with iconic horror movie characters at the HORRORWOOD BOULEVARD which adopts the famous Hollywood façade with large Oscar Statues, red carpet, velvet rope barriers, and lights.

Face the curse of the sea at ZOMBIE PIRATES with the undead guardians shunning you away from bay into a pool of their horrifying torment. Try as you may to keep afloat or the cursed sea will engulf you whole!

Don’t call yourself brave until you have entered the FOREST OF FEAR. Walk through different tombstones, haunted trees and leafy vines making your stroll in the forest vulnerable to surprise encounters with Hantu Pocongs and Pontianaks!  

video

Ever wondered what goes behind the bars of Pudu Jail? Experience it first-hand as you walk-through the JUDGEMENT LANE where we give you the closest representation of how the prisoners are hung alive!

Join the parade at MARCH OF THE UNDEAD, the street where scare characters walk about in different hauntingly beautiful makeup and costumes. Decorated with Mexican paper flags and accompanied by large puppet processions honouring the dead, it will surely send chills down your spine.

NOF 5 comes to life at 7.30pm – 11.30pm every Friday – Sunday from 7th to 29th October including 31st October 2017. Tickets are priced at RM64. Guests can upload their experience and include the #sunwaylagoonMY and #sunwaylagoonNOF5 hashtags to their social pages.

Fashion: (GIVEAWAY) Beat the Summer Heat with Summerism's Cotton Tee!

The weather these days is getting hotter and more humid day by day. Sometimes, I just feel like throwing on a tee-shirt and head out of house. But, most of the tee-shirts I have in my wardrobe are made out of really thick material and I'd sweat in them the moment I step out of house. 

What I find I really need, are tee-shirts for my dress down days, which look great and is comfortable at the same time. I recently came across a brand, Summerism which makes brand tees and customised tees with super soft cotton. I love how I could design my tees in my favourite colour and have my own wordings printed on it. I'm inclined to being a minimalist, so I tend to prefer less wordings on my tees. 



If you think tee-shirts are conventional and boring, I have came up with several ways to style and rock the tee-shirt look. Check it out!




Turquoise Brand Tee

This is the brand tee in turquoise, which I thought was simple and chic. With such a minimalist design, I decided  add a pop of boldness into the whole ensemble.

Paired it with Black Flared Chiffon Pants and Black Ankle Strap Heels for the modern busy entrepreneur or 'girl boss' who wants to look perfectly coiffed, but yet doesn't want to sacrifice on  comfort. I managed to turn your conventional tee into something out of the high fashion magazine!




'Princess' Customised Tee



This piece was customised by me, from the colour, the font and of course, the wordings as well. I realized that I didn't have many comfortable tee-shirts in this shade. I'd wanted to go for a street style look with this. 

Paired it with Black Zipper Shorts, Black Cap and Black Sport Shoes for the ultimate street fashion. I preferred this tee as a crop top and I got the fancy idea to knot it at the front. It makes it more figure hugging and accentuate your curves too!


GREAT NEWS! I'll be giving away Summerism's customised tee-shirts, so all you need to do is follow the steps below:

1. Follow me on Instagram (www.instagram.com/clarrisha.hong) 
2. Check out the details of the giveaway there!

For those who would like to customise your own tee or purchase the items above, head to Summerism website and key in my discount code clarrisha30% when you check out!
