Guinness Christmas Bold Confessions media launch @ The Apartment Downtown, KLCC

If you read my previous post, I received something mysterious from Guinness that left me thinking in curiosity. So what is Guinness Christmas Bold Confessions campaign is all about?

Stand up, 'fess up, be bold and show that you're made of more! 
- Guinness inspires you to wipe the slate clean this Christmas -

Before the year ends, Guinness wants to inspire its loyal customers to be bold and start the New Year afresh! Christmas is the time for joyous celebration as well as to look back and reflect on the things we've done or left unsolved. Christmas is the time when we open our hearts and confess to something, to own up to something they've done, or to open up and let people in on a secret about themselves that nobody else knows.

I attended the Guinness Christmas Bold Confessions media launch yesterday that was held @ The Apartment Downtown, KLCC.

Guinness Xmas Bold Confessions

Something mysterious happened today. I received a card from Guinness with an invitation to a campaign namely Guinness Xmas Bold Confessions. Curiously thinking what is going on as I've been so guilty this year doing something that I shouldn't - being a spendthrift. I need a fresh start before Christmas!

Dear Santa, it is nice to be naughty. But I know I can't go on like this forever. So here I am, confessing about my guilt and hope to have a new beginning before the year ends.

2014-11-14 00.30.05

Anyway, I can't wait to see what will happen on the 17th Nov during Guinness Xmas Bold Confessions. See you there! :)

[Review] Kiss Me Heavy Rotation Pore Smooth Base

When a woman says '5 minutes and I'll be ready.' Do you actually believe it? It takes forever for a woman to get ready. Deal with it.

I love makeup. I can't live a day without makeup. I love to look pretty but it's such a hassle as my daily makeup routine takes a long time. After my skincare routine, I usually apply a primer/base before I start applying any makeup on my face.

Thanks to Kiss Me Heavy Rotation Pore Smooth Base, my makeup routine became faster and easier.

0102

Kiss Me Heavy Rotation Pore Smooth Base comes in two colors:
01 Light Beige
02 Natural Beige

CIMG2477

Here are the comparison between these two colors.

My selection will always be natural beige because I'm afraid that my face will look overly 'white' or pale with light colors. But this time I applied the light beige and it did not disappoint me at all. It blends and even out my skin tone. I can now have glowing and smooth complexion.  :D

How to use Kiss Me Heavy Rotation Pore Smooth Base

Step 1 - After cleansing and conditioning skin, take an appropriate amount onto palm and apply it on the entire face.

Step 2 - Place small amount on the forehead, cheeks, nose and chin, and lightly spread in the direction of the arrows.

face

Step 3 - Gently pat on the areas around your pores and other areas you want to cover.

I applied nothing but Kiss Me Heavy Rotation Pore Smooth Base and eyebrow pen. I get to skip the step of applying sunblock and foundation which is so convenient. This base comes with SPF 33 PA++ and the high coverage of this base covers up my pores instantly and prevents oily shiny look. With only a few quick and easy steps, I get to achieve a flawless look. :D

But a girl like me would never settle for less. I like to contour my face for a more define look, not forgetting my eyes and lips to complete my look.
