Summer Play With M.A.C x Steve J & Yoni P

| |
Hi Huneybees,


After building so much hype, this June, we can finally see the launch of  M.A.C. x Steve J. & Yoni P. collection. It's nice to see more and more Asian collaborations and this K-wave collection is definitely for those who loves a natural look with a pop of colour.

For those who don’t already know, Steve J & Yoni P are a Korean design couple that are currently on the global fashion radar. They are known for their spunky yet sporty aesthetic that is streetwear ready with a dramatic touch.


And this collection makes good pairing with their fashion line. The packaging literally screams Yoni P in your face with her signature blonde locks and bold eyeliner look, it is plastered all over the boxes and even the products inside as well.

This new collection includes four lipsticks, two powder blushes, a potted eye gloss, a black mascara, two powder eyeshadow duos, a six-pan lip and cheek cream palette, a makeup bag and two brushes.

For me, I was aiming for the makeup bag, I find it as the highlight of the collection and I knew I had to get it, It makes a good storage for your makeup needs and also as a clutch bag for parties (why not right?); with a mirror within, you can easily touch up your makeup on the go.


Another product that is pocket worthy, would have to be the Yoni Attraction lip/cheek palette. 6 shades ranging from baby pink to bright corals and bubblegum pinks can be found all in one palette. The creamy opaque formula makes it easy to pick up and blend out, you can swipe and tap lightly on your cheeks for a flush of colour or use a lip brush for your lip shades, definitely travel friendly.




  • Keep It Loose Casual Colour – warm pink
  • Secret Admirer Casual Colour – bright coral
  • Young at Heart Casual Colour – bright pink
  • Weekend Getaway Casual Colour – cool rose
  • Lazy Sunday Casual Colour – baby pink
  • Show Orchid Lipstick – very hot pink (amplified)

Left: Sugar or Syrup
Right: Peony Petal

,
If you are not fans of the cream formula, there are also 2 powder blushers - Sugar or Syrup and Peony Petal that suit your warm or cool needs. They give your cheeks a subtle sheen of flush, pretty pigmented and blends out easily, but might seem a tad too light for those with darker skin tones. 

Left: Sugar or Syrup
Right: Peony Petal

You can see the colours "in action" in the video above.


Left: Touch Me Baby
Right: Midnight Fever
Next are the eyeshadow duos. Nothing fancy, just 2 palettes that will work great for day and night looks. Touch Me Baby is a combo of Soba (soft brown with gold shimmer) and Keep on Twinkling (light frosted pink), whilst Midnight Fever features Let’s Boogie (black with sparkles) and Sparkling Moment (black with purple & red sparkles).



Soba makes a great contour crease shade, whilst Keep on Twinkling draws attention to your eyes as you blink. They are not too shiny and are great shades for a day look with black eyeliner.
Of course, the Dazzleshadow duo makes great night shades with Sparkling Moment all over lid and Let’s Boogie to contour or line the lashes. You can even spray on a little Fix+ for more intensity.

Lastly, are the lipsticks! 4 shades to match the eyeshadow duos for different looks, different occasions.  

They are opaque, full opacity with just a single swipe, moisturizing and fun shades to have this summer. Candy Yum Yum is a regular shade, but the cute packaging just gives you an excuse to buy another. 

๐Ÿ’Ÿ๐Ÿ’Ÿ๐Ÿ’Ÿ So happy to be amongst the first few in Singapore to play with M.A.C's latest Steve J & Yoni collection. This is my Korean inspired #motd using the products from the collection. ๐Ÿ’Ÿ๐Ÿ’Ÿ๐Ÿ’Ÿ - On Eyes: ● Touch Me Baby Eyeshadow Duo on lids and brows ● This Is My Night Brown Eyeliner from the Mariah Carey collection ● I used @toofacedcosmetics Better Than Sex Mascara (Waterproof) rather than the Zoom Lash Mascara from the collection for it's not waterproof - On Face: ● Lightful C Quick Finish Compact (Light) ● Lightful Powder (NC30) ● Powder Blush (Peony Petal) - On Lips: ● Lipstick (A Killing Smile) - - - - - @maccosmetics @maccosmeticssg #macion #MACSJYP #beautyjunkie #beautyaddict #makeup #makeuplover #bbloggers #bblogger #instamakeup #sgmakeup #sgigmakeup #sgigbeauty #makeupjunkie #cosmetics #sgbloggers #sgblogger #HuneyZWorld #instalike #instafollow #beauty #Singapore #makeupaddict #instabeauty #selfie #instalike
A post shared by Huney'Z World (@huney_84) on



My favourite shade is A Killing Smile. It is a matte formula, but not drying at all. It is a very pretty crossover of red and coral, a special shade that you must have to add to your collections! Above is me wearing ths lipstick shade and swatches of others as below.



As for the eye gloss, I find it too close to the Brooke Candy collection, so I didn't get and didn't swatch; and the mascara is simply the Zoom Lash mascara in a different packaging. Be mindful though, it is not waterproof.
Overall Thoughts
If you a sucker for packaging (I know I am!) or M.A.C addict, go ahead and pick out a few of the items that you need. However, the range of colours are not as bold as the packaging, they are what I would call safe colours, that are good for natural day/night looks, which I guess guarantees fast sell-outs. I was also a little disappointed that there's a lack of eyeliner though, coz Yoni P definitely does her eyeliner on point, a black waterproof piece would be perfect to round off the collection eh?
The collection will be in stores 1st June 2017. So be sure to go early to GRAB! #MACSJYP

(Update: Special Deal) Get Your Dancing Shoes Out For Sister Act

| |
Hi Huneybees,


Whenever you mention Whoopi Goldberg, the image of her dressed as a nun naturally comes to mind. For those younger Z-Gens, Sister Act might not be familiar to you but back in 1992, this musical style movie got us all singing and dancing out of the cinemas and the movie garnered more than over US$231m at the box office!



Sister Act told the story of a diva nightclub singer - Deloris Van Cartier, who took shelter in a nunnery, after witnessing her mobster lover - Curtis Jackson commit a murder. Thinking the nunnery is the last place that the mob will find her, she continued to shine and showcase her singing talent, where she was assigned to "tune" the convent's choir.

She did an amazing job that it even caught the attention of the Vatican, which of course gave her location away when she appeared on TV. After a chase scene around the convent, of course, the bad guys get caught and it all ends with a happy ending.




Well, just like the movie version, the Broadway production version we caught last week at Marina Bay Sands was just as cheery and heart melting, sending us tapping and clapping all the way home. 


Featuring a lively musical score by celebrated Oscar-winning composer Alan Menken (Beauty and the BeastThe Little Mermaid) and lyrics by his frequent collaborator Glen Slater, Sister Act first opened in Broadway in 2011 after a circuitous route through London’s West End. 



The lead role - Deloris is played by Denรฉ Hill. She is as charismatic as Whoopi was, but she also had her little Beyoncรฉ touches on stage, giving us a showcase of her wide range of vocals along with the slew of comical "sister" casts. 



But, there was someone else stealing the limelight. It would have to be Sister Mary Robert that's played by Korean actress Sophie Kim So Hyang. Who knew that this petite little frame could belt such sky-high vocals and crush her solo tunes that everyone in the audience couldn't stop clapping for her? Yes, though her pronounciation is not that good, but for someone to reach such high vocals, she definitely deserves those applause.

All in all, it was an amazing songful night with motown tunes, colourful backdrops and costumes, together with hilarious script. I guarantee you will be singing and tapping your feet all the way home. There's just a few more days before Sister Act have to close, so be sure to get your tickets.


Sister Act is running until 28 May 2017 at MasterCard Theatre – Marina Bay Sands. Tickets are priced at $65, $95, $125, $155, and $185, available via SISTIC.

As the show is coming to an end, there is a special discount for fans who have yet to catch the show. Simply go to this link - http://entertainment.marinabaysands.com/cms/events/index.html?specialCode=sister0617E5&contentCodeBE=sister0617 to enjoy 15% off.

It is applicable for VIP, A and B Res and valid for all shows except Friday 7.30pm and Saturday 7.30pm shows.

Experience The Signature of LG Technology At ION Today!

| |
Hi Huneybees,




If you are looking to improve your living experience at home, a visit to the LG Signature Exhibition might just be the trip you need.



Opened to much funfare on 11th May 2017 at ION Orchard Atrium Level 1, with an orchestra, MediaCorp Artistes and two-time winner of Asia's Best Pasty Chef, Janice Wong of 2am:dessertbar, LG proudly unveiled its ultra-premium brand that blends sophisticated technology with modern minimalist designs through a showcase of its stunning Home Appliances and Consumer Electronics.





The key highlights at LG Signature Exhibition, are the two winners of Best of the Best awards at this year's Red Dot Design awards — LG SIGNATURE W7 OLED TV and Smart InstaView refrigerator — for their innovation and contribution to the design community.




LG SIGNATURE W7 OLED TV is simply a marvel, in term of both design and technology, to look at.


At just 2.57mm thick for a 65-inch model, you can just paste it onto the wall using a magnetic bracket! Built with LG OLED revolutionary pixel dimming control technology, which renders perfect black without any light leakage for infinite contrast ratio, you could actually display a high-resolution picture of Van Gogh's The Starry Night on the TV and its amazing ability to reproduce the most lifelike image actually created an impression that makes you feel you actually owned the real painting in your living room!!




While there are increasingly more and more smarter refrigerators been launched recently in the marketplace for Home Appliances, none so far allows users to peer inside without opening the door.
Featuring a 29-inch LCD touch display that instantly turns transparent with just two knocks, and come with a Auto Open Door feature that allows the user to open the door of the refrigerator with the user's foot instead of his/her hand (reminded me of opening the boot of premium cars), LG’s InstaView Door-in-Door™ refrigerator was recognized by Red Dot for successfully combining a beautiful appliance with interactive technology.

I personally like the Smart Tag menu within the LCD touch display of the refrigerator because it allows users to add stickers and tags on the screen to indicate which foods (and whose?!) are stored inside and also offers users the ability to input the expiration date of each item, so the refrigerator can issue reminders when foods near their expiration dates.




Do check out other LG SIGNATURE home appliances such as LG SIGNATURE Air Purifier that allows users to visualize air cleaning or the LG TWINWash washing machine at The LG SIGNATURE Exhibition that is open to public from 11 – 23 May at ION Atrium L1.

I Am Getting A New ASUS ZenPad 3 8.0 For My Mum This Mother Day!

| |
Hi Huneybees,


My mum has very few recreation activities as she devoted almost 40 years of her life as a full time home maker for the family. With more affordable and faster broadband services coupled with the prevalence of smartphone, she has recently started - as the children grown up - following TVB and Korean drama on her 4.7-inch LCD screen on her handphone.

So for this Mother's Day, I have decided to honour my mum for her contribution and sacrifice by getting her a tablet - ASUS Zenpad 3 8.0 - to improve her video streaming experience while avoiding the eye fatigue and strain.

One of the key consideration in choosing the right tablet is the weight to Display-Aspect-Ratio and ASUS Zenpad 3 8.0 (model Z581KL) is on par with major models such as Apple Mini and Samsung Galaxy Tab.


Weighing at just 320g, owe to its forged aluminum body, the 8-inch tablet by ASUS also comes with a premium leather-patterned rear cover that I really like the feel and I'm sure my mum would love the touch too while she is using it or bringing it effortlessly anywhere she goes; this is especially important after a whole day of house chores or out shopping!


What really impressed me is the cinematic audio that the ASUS Zenpad 3 8.0 delivers, thanks to the dual stereo speakers, one on either side, which produces the loudest quality DTS high definition (HD) sounds that I have ever heard on any single mobile devices.  


It also provides seamless and crystal sharp experience playing videos online or browsing through high quality megapixels photographs on the 7.9" LED Backlight QXGA (1536 x 2048) screen of the 
ASUS Zenpad 3 8.0, that gives vivid 2K (2048 x 1536 resolution) visual using ASUS Tru2Life+ technologies, powered by Qualcomm® MSM8956 Hexa Core, 1.8 GHz with 4GB onboard memory. Even apps open in seconds!


All in all, ASUS has created a stylish tablet that delivers powerful performance and is equipped with the latest USB Type C port as well as a Micro SD Card Reader that can read up to 128GB SDXC, making it a truly immersive entertainment for my mum in any possible scenarios!


Since Mother's Day is just round the corner, have you decided what to give to your mum yet?
Why not consider the ASUS ZenPad 3 8.0 like me too?

Check Out M.A.C's New & Revamped Rainbow Lipglass Collection ๐Ÿ’“๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’“

| |
Hi Huneybees,


M.A.C has a few exciting launches coming up, I've previewed them and shared a sneak peek on Instagram. Have you seen them?



I'll be sharing the extensive swatches from one of the collections - M.A.C Lipglass. Yes! M.A.C's hero product has gotten a new double wall vial look and new formula (jojoba oil to condition lips) for some of our favourite shades alongside new ones too. In total, 57 over the rainbow colours to match your every look and mood.


I was jumping straight into the display when I saw it in the middle of the store and was dying to hog them all the way home immediately! Can you imagine the infinity of lip colours you can come up with?! Sparkly light blue on top of jet black lips for a galaxy feel, Holographic lips for that Unicorn on you, or swipe a little orange or blue topcoat to brighten or darken that usual red lips! The list just goes on and on...


Exilarating eh? Scroll down to see swatches of them...





As much as I would like to get all the Lipglasses home, my wallet was not allowing me to. So I choose 3 shades that I can play with many other lip colours and also different from what other brands offer. 

I chose: 

  • Gal Friday - A pearlescent shade that gives mermaid vibes
  • New Galaxy - A soft blue grey sheer shade with rainbow glitter
  • Yellow Jacket - A lime yellow sheer shade with light reflecting glitter 


I can't wait to try them out on my lippies, follow me on Instagram for updates and go head to your favourite M∙A∙C stores now to check out the new shades. There's even a complimentary lip demo! Have fun shopping! =)

(Updated) Go Cashless At The 1st QR Code Payment Bazaar - DBS PayLah! Palooza

| |
Hi Huneybees,


Pop on over to *SCAPE if you are in town this weekend to check out the first cashless payment bazaar - DBS Paylah! Palooza. There's tons to buy with around 100 youth vendors booth - clothes, food, decoration items, even VR game stations littered along the sides for you to enjoy whilst in between shopping.



All thanks to DBS, we can now make payments easily with just a scan of QR code via the DBS Paylah! app. This bazaar is part of DBS's "Smart Nation Ambassador Programme" (SNAP) (ๆ™บๆ…งๅ›ฝๅฎฃๅฏผๅคงไฝฟ่ฎกๅˆ’) with *SCAPE in support of Singapore's Smart Nation Vision.

DBS will be recruiting up to 1,000 ambassadors that will fan out across the island to encourage small, cash-based merchants, hawker centres, wet markets and neighbourhood stores to adopt DBS PayLah! QR codes as a payment method.


At the palooza, we got to try out how fuss-free the whole payment is. You don't have to worry there's not enough cash in your wallet and go running to an ATM to withdraw money; all you need is to have the DBS Paylah! app loaded in your phone, log in and scan QR code at the merchant's to make the transaction. It's all done within seconds and you can watch the video above to see how easy it is!



You don't even need to have DBS/POSB accounts to have your own DBS PayLah! generated QR Code and I'm seeing more pros than cons during the whole palooza shopping trip.

  • It is highly convenient: Consumers only need to use their DBS PayLah! app to scan a QR code to make payment, while merchants simply need to display their personalised QR code (generated by their DBS PayLah! app) to receive funds. There is no need to carry cash, plastic cards, or even queue up for cash withdrawals
  • Barriers to entry are very low: Both consumers & merchants only need a Singapore bank account to send or receive funds via DBS PayLah!’s QR codes – at no cost
  • Transaction tracking: Merchants and consumers are able to track their transactions automatically
  • Security: If your mobile is stolen, DBS PayLah! can be blocked remotely – unlike cash. DBS PayLah! is also password-protected or secured using biometric ID.


This is just the beginning of more to come from the SNAP initiative as the bank also plans to partner with ComfortDelGro Taxi to implement QR code payment in its fleet of 16,300 taxis by 3Q17, in the hopes to have more than 30,000 QR code payment acceptance points available to customers by the end of the year! Woohoo! It's time to wave goodbye to our wallets. LOL!

Since its launch in 2014, DBS has enhanced DBS PayLah! with several trailblazing features. Besides sending money, you can also request for payment from others, make payments to over 43 billing organisations, donate money to more than 26 charitable organisations and top up mobile prepaid SIM cards. You can also shop and pay with DBS PayLah! at selected online merchants, including Qoo10.sg, comGateway, AXS and MSIG.

DBS PayLah! is also widely accepted as a payment option in another of the bank’s unique solutions for F&B businesses in Singapore, DBS FasTrack. The DBS FasTrack solution is the first of its kind to be introduced by a bank in Singapore. It provides a seamless ‘self-service’ ordering and payments solution for businesses while eliminating or drastically shortening customers’ wait time. Businesses in turn can use the solution to enhance their productivity and reduce reliance on manpower. Old Tea Hut, Five Star Restaurant, Koufu, Boon Tong Kee, Miam Miam, Aloha Poke, Wolf Express, Tiong Bahru Bakery, FoodCity SG and Li Xin Fishball Noodles are among the popular eateries – with many more in the pipeline – who have apps powered by DBS FasTrack, that customers can download in iOS and Android.


The DBS Paylah! Palooza is happening from May 5th to May 7th from 1pm to 9pm at *SCAPE Playspace. Happy shopping!
