NEWS: THE LAUNCH OF A FREE BEAUTY SAMPLES WEBSITE MUFFIN.MY

Do you love a free website that you can redeem beauty products from writing reviews?  We finally have one in Malaysia now after waiting for so many years!  You can check my review HERE




NEWS: THE LAUNCH OF A FREE BEAUTY SAMPLES WEBSITE MUFFIN.MY




Muffin.my is officially launched! Introducing you Muffin.my, the first unbiased beauty review community in Malaysia, where we encourage members to share their beauty

experiences by writing reviews and earn points. From the points that they earned, they can redeem beauty products from our redemption catalog. Having more than 500 brands and 23,000 products in product library, Muffin.my connects beauty users with brands and products.



The Founder

The founder of Muffin.my, Ms Florence Chee shared h er story of the start up of the beauty community website. “Back in 2011, I was pursuing my professional degree in Manchester United. I was searching for beauty product review online and I found there was great information and reviews being shared in one of the top beauty review websites in the states, but I couldn’t find such website back in Malaysia. This is where I want to set up a one stop beauty review community in Malaysia,” she explained.

With a team of energetic and motivated staff (1 founder, 1 developer, 1 designer, 2 web administrator, & 1 PR manager), Florence tends to hand out to those who are in passion in beauty, skincare, and makeup products, to meet all their honest reviews on the products they are using. Florence described Muffin.my as a similar version of TripAdvisor website, but with more interactive elements. “We ensure all reviews are genuine and unbiased to ensure quality inspections,” explained Florence. After working in a web consulting firm for a year, she realized that working life isn’t her real goal. “Just as what Steve Jobs quoted “the only way to do great work is to love what you do”. I want to make my dream come true, and my dream is to create the largest beauty review

community.” “A lot of people asked me why use ‘muffin’ word for my website. I wanted to create a simple name where people will remember the websiteeasily. The word ‘muffin’ just popped out in my mind and the next day, I tried to register the domain, and volla, it is valid! So immediately, I registered my website www.muffin.my . However, many people thought that we are selling muffins!” laughed Florence. With 6 years of experience in internet retailing and marketing, Florence hopes that Muffin.my will reach

100,000 members in 1 year time. Currently, 92% of our members are women; with most of them are 19-29 years old.

Skin care was one of the most dynamic categories in Malaysian beauty and personal care, and with RM1.6 billion being spent annually by Malaysia, the vision to be one of the largest www.muffin.my



.

Future Plan


Our next step is to create a mobile-friendly app version, to allow people access to our website easily at anytime, anywhere. Our future plan is to create beauty forum, help beauty merchants to conduct online surveys or marketing research, mystery shoppers and who knows? Maybe we will sell beauty products in the future!

REVIEW ON ETUDE HOUSE COLLAGEN EYE PATCH

Etude House Collagen eye patch is different from the gel version.  The patch is quite big to hydrate the skin around the eyes.

Korean products always come in such cute packaging that you feel sad throwing away the package away after using.  This is especially true for Etude House which appeal to girl with all the pretty pink products.  So, here is this Etude House Collagen eye patch review =)

The Hangul words near the collagen eye patch means also collagen patch so don't need to worry if you can't understand Hangul (korean language).  There is English instruction at the back of the packet so that would be a big help.

There is a light scent to it but I can't smell it when it is on my eyes area.

It does help to hydrate the area around the eyes.  The patch is comfortable and cooling on the eyes.  It helps with puffiness and hydration. Overall, not bad as it feels cooling and good as a weekly treat or to hydrate the eyes fast.  Fine line is temporary gone because of the hydration.  Not sure if it helps for the wrinkles.




Products retails at $1.98 per patch. For 10% discount use discount code:welcome at the link Here

It is written that the mask is for cleaning and soothing.  Can't help to fall in love with the beautiful packaging right?  The mask sheets design represent the type of the mask it contains. Here is the tea tree mask sheets.

 ETUDE HOUSE I NEED YOU TEA TREE MASK SHEET

3. Remove mask after 10~15 minutes and lightly massage remaining solution into skin with hands.

Caution:
1. For external use only.
2. Avoid contact with eyes.
3. Keep out of reach of children.
4. Discontinue use if signs of irritation and/or rash appear.






ETUDE HOUSE I NEED YOU TEA TREE MASK SHEET


I usually put them in the fridge to have the cooling effect on the skin. The I Need You Tea Tree Mask Sheet mask is quite small and suits my small face. The holes for the eyes are quite small and it is difficult to open the eyes especially if you have deep set eyes.


There is extra essence inside the packet. The tea tree essence doesn’t smell too strong as I would expect so it is good. The mask sheet is not too thin and it doesn’t drip onto my clothes. It does help with reducing the redness of my face as I was breaking out. If you have oily skin or with acne problem, then you can try this.  I would suggest those with dry skin to avoid using tea tree as it might dry your skin more.




Product retails for RM6.90 per piece at local Malaysia Etude Store.
You can get it from Etude house or online shop like Q-depot

REVIEW ON ETUDE HOUSE PRINCESS HAPPY ENDING ROSE CHEEK BLUSHER #1 PINK SHINE ROSE



"I wanted some much more than they've got planned"

The quotes are printed at the side of the box for the rose blusher for Princesss Happy Ending Belle.




This is Etude House Princess Happy Ending Rose Cheek Blusher  that has yet to be available in Malaysia.  It is from the Etude House Princess collection and here is the Belle’ Blusher.

There are two colours for the blusher- 1# Pink Shine Rose and 2# Coral Rose .

The box is actually design to look like a book. Yes, one can’t help falling in love with Etude House’s products that are just so pretty and fit for princess.  I don't even have the heart to throw such beautiful design book away.

The blusher itself it is made from light good quality plastic. It is in pink with good printing as the colour doesn't fade away.  Gold colour makes it look more luxurious.

 Inside, there is a rose embossed on the blusher. It looks just so pretty and I find it is a little like Milani blusher which also has rose embossed. Well, this blusher is sure cheaper than other pretty looking blusher available around too.

It is so pretty that I don't have the heart to even use it but well I still have to use it someday.

the rose blusher
 The blush itself has a very light scent of roses =) .

Here is the swatches


The blusher feels really soft and fine.  The blush has a pearl light pink colour.  So, one might need to apply many more layers for the colour to show.  I think it is meant for people with very light skin tone or for those nude makeup or princess makeup.  I think that this blusher would work better as a highlighter on my face.  The colour stays for a few hours unless one rub it off.

I am sorry that I didn't post up the photos of the blusher on my face because really, one can't see the colour on my face unless I edit the photos.



Etude House Princess Happy Ending Rose Cheek Blusher 2 Colors 4.8g at ($ 10.29 USD)  Sale Price: ($ 8.75 USD). Made in Korea.

You can get it at BeautyNetKorea. It is a company in South Korea.  They shipped internationally.

REVIEW ON ETUDE HOUSE SWEET RECIPE CUPCAKE ALL OVER COLOR BLUEBERRY CHEESE CAKE

Korean products are known for their very pretty packaging with affordable price and cuteness especially Etude House.  Personally, i had never tried Etude House products before.  I only get to know about Korean products when someone rave about them to me at point of time( the The Faceshop Raspberry Roots and Laneige).  Still, i do not like to buy items from the counters for some reasons.  I still prefer drugstore or Sephora where i can see, check and test everything to my heart content. However, that doesn't stop me from wanting to know about Korean products.


This is from the sweet Recipe where everything resembles A Sweet Cupcakes Shop.  I was intrigued by this cute 3 in 1 cupcakes when i see this online.  The name itself is like mouthful.  So, when i got this blueberry cheese cake that looks really pink with a hint of blue, i was ecstatic.  In the past, i had only tried Elianto products.  So, the cupcake itself smell much like blueberry cheesecake which was one of my favourite dessert but not exactly the same.  I guess it is hard to duplicate the smell of cheese into makeup.


So, here is the photo of the  ETUDE HOUSE SWEET RECIPE CUPCAKE ALL OVER COLOR BLUEBERRY CHEESE CAKE
inside the plastic



without the plastic cover


Top view

the colour is pinkish blue

this is with just cupcake all over color blueberry cheese cake.  It is pink.

I tried it on my lips and it looks bluish pink on me.  I look quite pale with this colour on my lips.  The balm turned to powder the moment it touches my lip.  I have to apply so many layer of lip balm before and after on my lip and still the colour run to my lips creases.  It only look better after tinting it with a colour lipgloss but i didn't show it here.  Overall, i don't suggest one to apply it on the lip unless you have super hydrated lips.  My lip chaps too easily even with just lipstick.  The cupcake colour also doesn't last long on the lips.  It disappeared the moment i eat.

me with the blueberry cheese cake on lips, cheek and eye shadow




The colour makes it good for eyeshadow and also blusher.  For eyeshadow, do apply primer first as the colour fade off fast with oily lids like mine.  The pinkish blusher makes it good for Gyaru, cute makeup or makeup for Barbie.  It also provide a healthy glow to the skin and last long without fading.

So, for the prices, i would say that it only works as a blush and eyeshadow.   I think it is hard to make one makeup product that works on the lips, cheek and also eyes as the skin at these area are different.  Again, who wouldn't want to just just carry that one makeup products that works for all since it really save space and weight for travelling.
