There’s this kiosk that always caught my eyes every time I walked pass it at Sunway Pyramid because it’s so pinkish. And I believe most girls like pink color. Yup, this is bloop‘s kiosk. I was here under HiShop‘s invitation for bloop’s Candy Makeup Party!

OK, now time to get serious a bit. A bit only, cos we still get to play…with nail colors! Bloop is most known for their nail colors which are also available at Watsons Pharmacy. After trying them out myself, I know why so many people went gaga over their nail color! It dries very quickly and easy to apply. Normally noobs like me will need to apply many layers until it became uneven but bloop nail colors still look smooth.
Tried different colors on every nail *greedy*

Cheer up your days with colorful nails!

bloop is makeup made easy. It represents a new generation of make-up to help women combat the highly demanding and competitive world. Thanks to its innovative packaging and technological advancement in product quality and texture, make-up has never been this fast and easy.

THE bloop EQUATION: 

bloop = make up – (the fuss) + Fun x Your Imagination

So we were on our seats with lots of products and a mirror in front of us like college students while Mrs, Chan explained to us the correct method to use skincare products starting from makeup removal. We were told to remove our makeup using water-based bloop Makeup Remover by wiping it in upward direction so we can do lifting massage at the same time! Brilliant idea!
Later on, we prepped our skin using bloop Marine Botanical Toner and bloop Marine 4 in 1 Pure Aloe Vera Gel before applying any makeup. My skin felt instant hydration boost and it’ll surely help makeup last longer.

First, I used bloop Candy Cream Foundation (027) to smooth out imperfections such as pores, wrinkles, freckles, age spots and pigmentation. The product is light and non-oily. Next, I applied bloop Two Way Cake (02) to set my makeup and control excess sebum secretion. bloop Candy Blusher (03) made the magic by giving my face a healthy and natural looking blush on my cheeks. All these 3 products contain SPF 25 to protect our skin from the sun.

P/S to men: Two Way Cake is not a type of cake! Cannot be eaten one, ok!

Japanese Gel Nail and Manicure @ Shige Hair Salon

29 Comments

I’m having insomnia now. Couldn’t sleep so I’m going to share my experience of getting Japanese gel manicure at Shige Hair Salon, Plaza Damas.

Upon arriving there, I was greeted in Japanese. It never occurred to me that the place is owned by Japanese since a lot of places in KL have Japanese name but owned by local. I was taken to the upper floor into a small, cozy well decorated room. And this is where I met my nailist, Biju san. She’s a beautiful young Korean girl who speaks fluent Japanese and basic English so there’s not much problem communicating with her.

Pretty right?

As it’s my first time doing gel nails, it was a bit complicated knowing that I can customize so many things. Basically, I need to choose the color, the jewels and design that I want. For the design, I chose to let Biju san decide since she’s the expert here.

Halfway through the process, the Japanese owner, Akiyo san arrived and stayed with me until I left. That was so sweet of her! I felt like a VIP! According to her, all nail products were flown in from Japan because as an avid nail art fan herself, she tried other brands and felt that the quality in Japan is way better. Besides the product, skill of the nailist is also very important to ensure that the gel nail done can last longer. I have no worries about that since Biju san has 4 years experience in this field.

According to Akiyo san, the gel manicure can last for around 3-6 months if done properly. Many people might complain that Japanese gel manicure is more expensive than basic nail polish manicure but if you’re good in Maths, you’ll realize that the average cost per month is almost the same as basic manicure. Really worth it! What’s great about Japanese nail gel is you don’t need to wait for it to dry! They just use UV light for a few minutes and it’s all ready!

Tadah!! What you think?

Had a nice 1.5 hour chat with both of them about food in Malaysia, Big Bang, Japanese and Korean drama plus so much more! What a happy day indeed! And I totally love their politeness especially when escorting me out 😀
