The Butterfly Project turns 4

The Butterfly Project recently celebrated its 4th birthday!! Wow, it has come a long way and I still remember when it first started because I joined ever since their first year of establishment. I have known Tammy, the founder, way before all these. I met her at the Cleo's Next Top Blogger finalist photoshoot and from there, we became friends and the rest as they said is history hehe

So happy she threw a party in conjunction with celebrating her 'baby' project to gather us bloggers for a fun party time =)

It was held at Hello Deer, Damansara Uptown.

This is the first thing we saw when we first stepped in.
A huge blackboard with messages.

Beautiful cupcakes!

The table setting was so gorgeous and so picture worthy hehe

More fooodd. It was all so yummy.

Fruit punch.

I've had like second rounds of buffet because it was not only pretty but delicious!

The hardwork and effort put into decorating the place was pure love.

The theme was pastel.

Everyone had to introduce themselves and their blog.

After that, it was unboxing our products review!

This is our new logo by the way.
Tammy made the custom made bag just for us <3

 We were all so excited to see the filled to the brim bag and you must be there to witness our reaction when we opened it because we were so surprised by the sponsors' generosity and were super thankful!

Suddenly the table was filled with so many products.

This is me from behind checking out the beautiful eyeshadow palette from W.Lab.

It was such a fun time unboxing and we were so busy checking out the products and were so chatty that the entire room was filled with so much happiness hehe Full unboxing review is below.

Thank you G&G Studiobooth for the high quality photograph printed out from the photo machine.

Last but not least, thank you Tammy for organising this and for those who helped out to make this event a very successful one. We definitely went home happy.

If you spot some beautiful high reso pics above, it's from Eros Si who blogs at www.fishmeatdie.com.

Now, on to the most exciting part.
I'm pretty sure you must be wondering what was in all our bags?

In total, we have 12 sponsors who generously contributed to The Butterfly Project birthday bag which totals up to almost RM1,000 per bag.
Trust me, I was also a lil overwhelmed when I saw all these. My mouth could not stop gasping haha

So anyway, since we received so many products which could be used on a daily basis, I will be showing you how I used just the above products for my daily routine for different looks within the week. I literally just dug stuffs out from the bag to use and totally ignored my other stuffs for one whole week to be able to do a full proper review.

Okay, so for 1 whole week, every morning, I have been waking up to my favourite body care from Adidas.

Adidas Climacool range
Climacool Shower Gel 250ml RM10.90
Climacool Deodorant 35ml RM4.99

(Right off the shower) Haha
After bathing with the Climacool shower gel, I managed to stay fresh all day long due to their innovative technology. It has motion-activated fresh capsules that break upon friction/touch to release "freshness" as I move. So basically, once I bathe, the gel which has 'in-built' capsules stays on my body and when there's friction, it releases "freshness" to keep me fresh all day long. How cool is that??

The anti- perspirant is used after shower to keep body odour away and of course, it uses the same technology. It releases the same unique "freshness" that activates when you move. No wonder, I feel fresh with no bad B.O even after a long day of work =) In fact, no perfume is needed when the combination of both is used.

Next up, is skincare.
Thanks to Clinelle, we had a few products from them.

Clinelle UV Defense SPF 50 30ml RM48.70

The UV Defense Cream soothes, hydrates and protect skin from the sun's harmful rays with this non-greasy, broad spectrum sunscreen suitable for all skin types. The Broad Spectrum prevents skin absorption of chemical sunscreen for longer and safer skin resilience time. Also formulated with nourishing benefit of hydrolysed pearl peptide, it moisturises and restructures skin while UVA and UVB shield skin from the harmful UV rays. 

Applied under makeup 30 minutes prior to sun exposure.

Now, the next product got us girls screaming when we saw it.

Wanderlust Things Unicorn Eye Makeup Brush RM89
Yes, did you hear the word 'unicorn'? It's like a total hype these days for the unicorn brushes. Totally wanted to get one for myself but luckily I held myself because little did I know, I would be receiving these gorgeous brushes!

And I love love how it all seemed like a fantasy because the description of the product reads:
'Made from the finest unicorn hair & a strong unicorn horn handle, this unicorn brush set would make any girl, scream with rainbows! No unicorns were harmed in the process.'
HAHA, how funny is this? ^^

Love the entire concept of Wanderlust Things and you should check them out at their website:
They sell the most beautiful things. It's fantasy coming to life. Quote 'Butterfly 01' to enjoy a 10% discount during checkout. The code expires on 30th June 2017.

Used the eyebrow angled brush for my brows.
The brush is soft and easy for application. The bristles picked up the colour easily for a consistent blend. It's definitely not just pretty but able to do its job as well. Felt quite sayang to use also because it's too prettyyy >.<

Next up, prepping for my eyes. 

Another item that I so loveee
W.Lab Pocket Shadow Palette Blooming RM90
Goddess- like eye shadows created with the beauty of flowers and made with various flowers extracts(really!).

It consists of 10 super gorgeous colours.

Mixed Begonia and Moss Rose colour to achieve the pretty in pink shadow.

The glitters in the eyeshadow really stood out and I love glitters. It's subtle for day look and add more for a night look later.
Read on more about how you can even do shading with this palette and buy it from Althea

Also used the Dolly Wink Liquid Eyeliner WP Super Black RM69.90

This is a no brainer. We all know Dolly Wink is super awesome. In fact, I am also using Dolly Wink brand as my everyday wear and was so glad to receive another one. It is easy to glide on, fast dry and waterproof. It's sweat, water, tears and sebum resistant. Also contains beauty essence to nourish skin.

Another favourite is the Orkid Cosmetics Liquid Lipsticks RM39 each

Super awesome of them to include 4 best new shades for each of us.
I had Turnt, Mars, Vibes and Blush colour.
It is a Halal beauty brand created by a local blogger which is a hit among Muslims. Their matte suede liquid lipsticks have been the talk of the town because the quality is really good and it's vegan!
Get it here: www.orkidcosmetics.com

Got to sayy...Blush colour is such a pretty pink colour.
Mars is a darker red- great for night dinner
Turnt is a bit nude for those who love subtlety
Vibes is slightly a bit more pinkish than Blush for those who like a pop of colour.

So I applied my fave-the Blush colour.

Thanks also to Mamonde's Floral Hydro Mist for setting my makeup of the day.

Mamonde Floral Hydro Mist 120ml RM49
This spray mist has a cooling effect and I used it to set my makeup during the day and in the middle of the day, spray again to replenish and moisturise my skin with Daffodils extracts + mineral water to turn the heat down especially in our weather and to keep skin hydrated all day long.

Finally, done with my makeup and off to work I go and event at night.
This look lasted me til the end of the night and was very happy with all the products from various sponsors to make me look beautiful =)

At night, it's time to remove my makeup.

Clinelle added in the Deep Cleansing Water sample which is a 5-in-1 multi action water based cleanser that effectively removes dirt, oil and all traces of makeup from face, eye and lips.

It really works wonders.

Just one wipe and everything comes off.
Left- after cleansing. Right-before cleansing.

After that, cleansing face time with Neesya Cleansing Set RM39.
This brightening certified halal set comes with a 100ml Gel Cleanser & 75ml Enzymatic Refiner Scrub to brighten & revive dull looking skin.

Used the soap free Brightening Gel Cleanser and squeezed 2 pumps on palm.

Worked a light lather and massaged into damp face and neck and rinse.
This gentle soap free foamless formula cleanses and prepares the skin for brightening effects. Dissolves and eliminates skin-dulling impurities while maintaining essential moisture balance.

Thereafter, I smoothed a medium layer of the Brightening Enzymatic Refiner over cleansed dry skin. Spread with a light circular motion and left on for 3 minutes. Before rinsing, wet fingers and perform a quick circular massage to lift off loosened impurities.
Use 1-2 times a week to enhance skin brightening.

It is a gentle, non-abrasive exfoliant that helps promote luminous clarity and brighter skin and cell renewal, fade superficial blemishes and clear pores.

Therafter, proceeded with Clinelle's Pure Swis Hydracalm Sleeping Mask 60ml RM75.90

This is a best seller cooling, refreshing light gel sleeping mask to hydrate & brighten skin overnight, leaving skin rejuvenated & refreshed the next day. The unique formula transforms into water droplets when applied on skin. It can be easily absorbed by the skin & leave sit delicately hydrated & supple.

Apply adequate amount on face before bedtime. Leave overnight and rinse next morning.
I absolutely love this product! Firstly, it is a lightweight gel which is suitable for my oily skin and my skin felt really smooth the next day making it easy for skincare and makeup application.

The next morning, repeat body and skincare routine.
Now, different makeup for the day.

Applied eyeshadow using Wanderlust Things eyeshadow brush.

1028 Big Eyes Magnifier Mascara 8ml RM59.90

It magnifies eyelashes with the diamond shaped brush that coats lashes from root to top, lifting and thickening every single lash without weighing it down.

It magnifies lashes by 5x for the wide eye effect. Also contains Vitamin B5 to protect lashes.
What I liked about it is that it is not clumpy.

Eyeliner by Mamonde Long Lasting Liquid Eyeliner 4ml in shade 01 Black RM39

It creates vivid lines without smearing eyes for the whole day. 

I love liquid eyeliner and although I have used Mamonde brand before, this is the first time using their eyeliner and it didn't disappoint. It's very easy to glide on and the liquid has the right amount of thickness to create the bold liner look.

 Finished up with Orkid Cosmetics liquid lipstick in Turnt shade.


The next day, used all these for my look:

W.Lab eyeshadow
Mamonde Long Lasting Liquid Eyeliner
Wanderlust Things Eye Makeup Brush
Orkid Cosmetics Liquid Lipstick in Vibes

Off to dinner <3

Repeated the same the next day.

I'm in love with the Adidas Climacool Deodorant. Cooling and keeps me fresh the whole day!

Simple eye makeup for the day.
Used the 1028 Big Eyes Magnifier Mascara. Yeap, it's all real lashes baybeh!
Mamonde Long Lasting Liquid Eyeliner

After a week long of makeup, it's time to pamper skin with mask.

Hadabisei Moisturising Face Mask Extra Rich 5pcs RM48.70

This extra rich serum moisturising face mask formulated with Hyaluronic Acid & Royal Jelly to deliver hydration deep into the skin. All masks are soaked in 25ml of Beauty Serum that's why it is rich! Especially great for dry skin. My skin seemed dry when I came back from overseas and it was really great to pump in moisture for an instant boost.

Also, have been binging alot lately so I was quite pleased to receive this Clinelle Hot Body Shaper Cream 170ml RM89.90

Reduces cellulite, flatten tummy, shape, firm and tone your body WITHOUT the need to exercise. Woo-hoo! How awesome is that?

A high performance & natural body shaping cream that visibly trims body contour, improves skin elasticity & firmness. Rich in technologically advanced natural active ingredients derived from Organic Brown Algae extracts, it effectively reduces the appearance of body fat.
Also formulated with SenseHot thermal action, it delicately warms up the skin for immediate penetration of active ingredients into skin.

Use the in built metal roller ball head to massage the flabs away.
The scent was really nice hehe. Felt a warm sensation thereafter so be careful not to apply too much on the skin otherwise it will burn.

Pax Moly Aloe Vera Soothing Gel RM29.90
Soothe & cool down skin with Aloe Vera from Jeju Island. This light, moisturising & refreshing gel contains vitamins & amino acids.

Been having allergies lately with small red spots. So I've been applying the gel to cool down the itch and redness. It helps in soothing the affected area.

Last but not least, thank you Photobook Malaysia for givng us vouchers to redeem a simple photobook 6x6 hardcover RM79 and 50 x4R prints RM25.

Managed to redeem mine and it was such good quality that my partner was very happy to receive it <3
