Introducing the NEW Gucci Guilty Absolute | An Absolute Seal Of Masculinity And Its Freedom

What defines a man? Is it the man he has come to embrace, or the man he foresees to become? Perhaps that journey of becoming the man whom he wishes to be has a great deal to do with understanding the dichotomy of taking up responsibilities and the freedom that he yearns to have and balancing these two opposing worlds. At times, a certain scent will elicit such qualities in a man or reflect what kind of a man he is.

We had the opportunity to share a beautiful afternoon lunch with Gucci Malaysia at Chinoz On The Park recently, to allow them to introduce us to the brand's latest offering from the fragrance department - Gucci Guilty Absolute. The roadshow and promotion for the fragrance is from 28th April till 7th May 2017. It was a great set-up at the Suria KLCC Concourse area (just like the previous one which we checked out here before), to say the least and we were impressed by it all.

The Good Co. | A Perfect Place For Honest Clean Healthy Food

What would be the first thought that comes to your mind if the word fast food is mentioned? Ultra fast to fill up that hungry tummy but most often not that healthy for the body, right? What if we tell you that fast food now need not be unhealthy? On the contrary, it can be nutritious, freshly prepared and packed daily, with a whole load of wholesome organic and vegan goodness and love. Would you be keen to know more? We are most definitely! That was exactly what we did, during the press launch of this latest cool place called The Good Co., one that serves up plenty of honest good food on-the-go. That was a great afternoon of exploration and discovery after all.

Located within a stylish sales gallery, Bön Estates - living, well crafted which stands on the pinnacle of Jalan Maarof, opposite Bangsar Shopping Centre, is a boutique developer that focuses on well crafted, sustainable and healthy living concept developments with The Good Co. as its healthy lifestyle partner, a healthy fast-food cafe, in essence.

McQueen Eau de Parfum | The Night Queen Who Came And Reigned Our Heart

When we were told that a surprise from the house of Alexander McQueen would be arriving to the world of LUMINNEJ, we were extremely excited, as the name always seems to remind us of opulent, serious creativity, wrapped with the element of surprises, avant-garde almost, yet steep in tradition and gothic genetics and the fascination of dark beauty. As expected, the white packaging itself reflects that simplicity with the hint of blush feather embossed motifs, coupled with a degree of mystery. When we unboxed, the quant little clear glass bottle with a very unique lacquered cap cover which is filled with a grid of tiny studs (which is meant to mimic the texture of fabric) revealed itself to us, almost like walking out of the woods in the dark, emerging for the first time to its rightful owner.

Mt. Sapola | An Enchanted Afternoon of Blissful Home Scent Exploration

We do believe the sense of smell plays a crucial role in awakening the mind and body, especially in today's hectic lifestyle and environment. We were extremely thrilled to discover that we would have a chance not only to explore a wide range of home scents range brought to us by one of the leading experts in the aromatherapy industry here in Malaysia, we could even have a chance to learn a thing or two about scents and how to put together our own signature home scent. All thanks to PR friends at Suppagood and our gracious host for the day, Mt. Sapola of Malaysia.

LifeProof Your Gadget & Have The Best Adventures Of Your Life | LifeProof NÜÜD

Live beyond your limits! Have you wondered where is the further you can go in life and what would you do to just have that in life? To live life knowing that there is still so much more to explore and experience is such an amazing feeling. When LifeProof Asia (here for more) approached us to give their nifty gadget a look and review, we were immediately captivated by the brand's philosophy and idea of pushing the boundaries and live life to the fullest. As adventurous as we hope we could be, we do (secretly) harbour such wishful dreams of climbing the Mount Everest (ooops! haha, maybe not that, but somewhere closer to home, the Mount Kinabalu!) or surfing the rough sea or waves of the Point Break of Noosa, Queensland, Australia, we could only settle for our daily walk and run, or an occasional tennis session for now. We bet that day will come, eventually for us to cross those off from our bucket list. We are hopeful, in that sense, no matter how foolish it may sound.

So, what remarkable gadget are we talking about here then? It is none other than LifeProof's new NÜÜD iPhone Casing. You may ask, what so special about this casing? Aha, sit back and we shall reveal it all here. How about the sound of 4 Proofs with Zero Doubts - Water Proof, Dirt Proof, Snow Proof and Drop Proof! Super duper cool, right?

SOS Skincare | Flawless & Luminous Skin For All

We had the opportunity to be invited to attend a brand new skincare launch some time back. It was one which is called SOS Skincare (Science On Skin). The place? Roost KL in Bangsar. Looking at the chic white simple packaging, it was already something interesting that got our interest piqued. We shall let our contributing writer, Nalini shares with you her experience of using the skincare range, shall we?

Hey y'all! Hope 2017 has been treating you well so far! 

It is Nal and I am excited to be back yet again with another review. This time on skincare. Truth to be told, I am not for it, hardly ever used any type of skincare products besides the St. Ives Celanser or Scrub. So, when I got a hold of this new pair of SOS Skincare, I was rather intrigued to find out what it can do for my skin. I sampled the Cleanser+ and the Multivatimins+ for over a month. 

For those who have not heard about the brand, it is not because you have been living under a cave. It is simply because it is the new kid on the block. Launched in December 2016, the Science On Skin (SOS) features three products to begin with - Cleanse+, Acne+ and Multivitamins+. Developed by French researchers, the SOS products are specially formulated for all types of Asian skin! SOS products differ from other over-the-counter beauty products, as its dermatologist-developed formulations boast of higher concentration of active ingredients that deliver multiple benefits to treat, rejuvenate and protect the skin from free radicals.

Introducing Dior Colour Gradation Spring 2017 Collection

Time flies and spring announces its arrival with such energy that it feels like there are so much more to experience, explore and do during this season. One of them would be to uncover what Dior, the beauty brand has to offer this season. Thanks to Dior Malaysia, we had the opportunity to try out some of the beauty items that are available this spring, they called it the Colour Gradation Spring 2017 Collection. (here for more) Shall share our thoughts on them today.

Dior Colour Gradation Eyeshadow Palette (4.5g at MYR260) - Limited Edition
There are two shades of this 4-colour palette, 001 Blue Gradation and 002 Coral Gradation. The one we have is 001. Comes in Dior's signature casing and pouch, the four blue shades of colours look impressive in the pan, adorned with the pleated pattern of the house of Dior, simple yet alluring we feel. 

From sky blue to azure, the cool tones compliment each other and we love how it can be subtle yet the intensity of the eyeshadows are good enough to build up to a more smokey effect for the eyes.  Soft yet buttery feel to the eyes, matte finishing, this palette is versatile. If you love the colour blue, you will fall in love with this one. We did notice the staying power of the eyeshadow was not as expected, an eye base product would be advisable. Here for more.

Rouge Dior Brillant Lipshine & Care Couture Colour
If you had known us long enough, we are not really a lip gloss kind of gal, more lipsticks instead, but we have to say this new one by Dior took us by surprise. We totally enjoyed it as it glides on effortlessly, leaving the lips feeling moist, light, not sticky, very much liquidy kind of feel, yet the colour payoff is intense. It looks more like opaque liquid lipstick rather than a gloss. We are pretty in love with this shade, 878 called Impulsive, really as it gives our lips a pop of colour, looking classic yet with a twist of fun element to it!

Diorshow Iconic Overcurl Spring 2017 (Limited Edition)
We have tried pink mascara before but BLUE would be our first, this one from Dior spring 2017 collection is one really pretty one in terms of the shade of blue, 284 Overnight. Love the packaging of the tube and the wand is built in such a way that it does catches a lot of eye lashes and coats our lashes well with the blue hue. Quite electrifying, the final look and effect. The only little qualm we had with this one is the fluidity of the formula, it feels a tad too thick and dry. If it were a little more watery, it would be so much more easier to glide onto the lashes. Here for more.
