Givenchy Beauty Liner Disturbia

I started 35 with a bang and by that, I mean I didn’t do anything 😅. Life is so different now and priorities have shifted – life with a baby in a major way. But I am thankful for social media and moms on the Instagram showing that moms can still be beautiful and glamorous – between feedings and diapers.

While the minute of beauty nowadays could be just taking out overnight braids, juggling momlife and having a makeup beauty routine is still a challenge. The first makeup item for most girls is lipstick that was transformative but for me it is actually eyeliner! The first time I smudged the black little pencil on my eye, I was transformed.

I have tried many types of eyeliners and they all end up smudged and panda like by the end of the day or even 10 mins of wear. I know that with my new schedule as a mom, anything I use will have to have the same stamina as me! Even though I do like cheap and cheerful drug store brands, the Givenchy Liner Disturbia has changed my mind. It is worth every cent of the $29 it costs. It is literally the best thing that can make me feel alive and look like me again on the most difficult sleepless days.

Momlife includes babies eating your face. I mean literally licking and chewing on your whole face! So I stopped wearing all foundation makeup when I’m with Niko. Even with crazy hormonal acne and tired eyes, I wish Snapchat filters were available IRL! If I feel super tired, I don’t want to LOOK super tired 😃

So in the rare occasion that I can dress up and go out for an hour or so, I’m using my new Givenchy Eyeliner because it is the only thing that works harder than a new mom like me. 24 hr budge proof and surviving this 115F Las Vegas sun like a pro.

A new eyeliner, with a precise result, intense color and an almost disturbing performance.

Liner Disturbia is the new generation eyeliner, with a 24 hours wear texture, intensely pigmented from the very first stroke.

The texture dries up quickly and becomes transferproof and waterproof.

With its innovative formula, Liner Disturbia can be applied on top of any powder eyeshadow, without dimming down, making sure the end result remains both precise and intensely pigmented.

All Things Beautiful Come From Nature – WASO Superfoods for Super Skin

Asian beauties seem to be more and more popular. As a girl originally come from Asia, I always trust the way how Asian take care of our skin. When I was growing up, I watched how my family do the skincare routine everyday. My mom, my cousin, my aunts, all of them love Japanese skincare brand, especially Shiseido, which is definitely the most popular and legendary Asian skincare brand well known internationally.

I am so happy to announce the re-launch of Shiseido’s WASO line inspired by Japanese Superfoods. Originating from a combination of two Japanese words, “WA” meaning harmony, and “SO” meaning inspiration, the WASO line combines Japanese aesthetics with nature to create exclusively formulated skincare.

Inspired by the holistic and natural Japanese food tradition of Washoku – or Japanese cuisine – WASO features key ingredients selectively chosen for their purity and celebrated in their simplest forms. Featuring a simple and minimalist line-up of products that take a unique approach, fusing nature and technology, to bring out natural beauty. This line is designed specifically for unstable, unbalanced skin in young adults, ages 18-25.

Washoku respects the uniqueness of each ingredient and maximizes its natural flavor. Born based on this philosophy, WASO uses the power of foods and botanicals known to promote beauty and health in Japan, unveiling skin’s most unique, natural beauty. Shiseido’s PhytoResist System+ is designed for unstable young adult skin – plump and lush inside, yet sensitive to stress outside. This system uses the power of botanicals to heighten skins barrier and support its ability to self-renew.

Each product is dermatologist tested and non-comedogenic, paraben-free and mineral oil-free so skin can breathe easy. Good for all skin types.

The key ingredients are Superfoods. Created with respect for nature, aesthetic, and culture, the product range is formulated with botanicals and includes superfoods like carrot, loquat, honey, tofu yuzu and red basil to help balance, hydrate and prevent the appearance of imperfections.
