NH Colla Plus Collagen Drink, OCC Interlace, NOTD - Gold!

I've always been wanting to try the Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tars so when a chance came, I happily got Interlace.

Described on the website as the palest peach cream. Truthfully, I'm not too sure if I agree with th description but since I have no words to describe the colour myself, we'll leave it at that.



This is not something new to most readers so I'm not going into great lengths to describe this. A small amount is needed to apply to your lips, sure you can squeeze all you want but too much of this and you'll look like an idiot.

I squeezed the usual amount (compared to other lip glosses) out and applied it to my lips, I had the weirdest pale orange-y shiny lips ever.


It looks fine here but I looked like an idiot in real life; After blotting it a little

While some say the OCC lip tars last for hours and hours, I must be doing something wrong cause mine doesn't last at all. 2 hours or less max and if I don't reapply, I have a weird outer ring on my lips which is not flattering.

Oh well, it's still a very pretty colour and I can't wait to get my hands on other colours and mix them myself.



Thank you Sir Terrible Memory for getting me a bracelet. I love it!

NOTD - Gold!

While shopping in Zara in Japan, I saw this Japanese lady having the bling-est gold nails I have ever seen in my life. Under the soft light of the shop, her nails sparkled and drove me crazy.



Fast forward, I decided to recreate her nails using cheaper alternatives. It was messy, annoying, pain in the *toot* but the effect was worth it.

I used Etude House Gold BR003 as a base then I layered it with Winmax Pedicure Nail Enamal (gold flakes) which I got for RM5 in Daiso.

I think it took me roughly 6 layers of the Winmax gold flakes to cover the entire nail. My mistake was that I didn't wait for the layers to dry. By the 2nd layer I got lazy and that was my downfall. It look a veryyy long time to dry and I kept messing it up.

Up close, it looks messy but from far, it was great. It sure got my a lot of compliments. HA-HA! *puffs out chest for no apparent reason*

Right after I posted up the Inspired Look: Atelier Maquillage I could help but notice my "saggy" cheeks. It bothered me for a while and I wasn't sure what I could do about it besides messaging it and using firming creams. I have a fear of all the 'firming, anti-aging' creams because they tend to be rich and break me out. So it was between having loads of pimples or saggy cheeks. ARGH!



A colleague recommended me NH Colla Plus Collagen drink, at wits end I decided to give it a try. My colleague mentioned that I should buy it in pharmacies because it was selling at RM135 versus Watsons's RM164 for a month's supply.


Yes I look bloody weird with the make up but I putting on my long forgotten RM5 Daiso blusher when I 'rediscovered' my FREE lipstick that was in a horrendous red-ish colour and couldn't resist putting it on.

I'm using RMK liquid foundation in the photo and it's about 13 hours old.

After about 2 weeks, I started seeing improvement to my skin. My pores started shrinking and my skin firmed up.

Boy, was I happy. I'm now on my 2nd box and recommended it to my mom. I was shocked when my mom, halfway through her box has started seeing improvement as well. her frown line is less obvious and her pores has shrunk.

Definitely recommended for anyone who's interested in collagen drinks.

I tried collagen drinks in the past. I swear they do work and it was not my imagination. I tried the collagen powder from Sasa in HK too. Your skin looks really good:)

Love your gold nails! Does the bling flake off after a while?

Popblush said...

The OCC Lip tar looks nice on your lips but pity you think it doesn't look too good. And bummer that it doesn't last! I've never tried collagen drinks before but your skin looks amazing and glowing hun!

I need some collagen drinks too! A few years ago, I tried the Meiji collagen powder, got lazy, and stopped. I should pick it back up again. Your skin looks so dewy and supple! :D

And I love that your nails are as blingy as your JC bracelet! Sir Terrible Memory has excellent taste.

I still haven't tried OCC lip tars. Yep, sooo behind! Kekeke. Boo to that weird outer ring! At least the color looks fab on you!! :D

(Let me know how the massage works for you! Hope you like it :)
