Online Beauty Store Luxola is finally in Malaysia!!! (and a little surprise gift from me)

Living in Malaysia can be a disadvantage if you love shopping online. Online shoppers, you know exactly the pain, don’t you? There are many websites that sell good stuff don’t deliver to Malaysia for some unknown reason. But if you’re a fan of luxury beauty & makeup products, I have good news for you (and read on until the end, I have a little surprise for you all)......................... is the good news.

Recently I got to know that the Singapore first online beauty shop is now shipping to Malaysia! YESSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Not just that, the site is also available in Thailand and Indonesia. You can choose your country on the site and the price will be shown in your currency.

The best of all, your package will arrive in 48 hours!

Brands that are available on Luxola are:

BECCA Cosmetics
Benta Berry
By Terry
Deborah Lippmann (luxurious nail polish I’ve been wanting to own for a long time!)
Dr. Jart
Duo (the best eyelash glue nominated by many beauty gurus)
Estelle & Thild
Face Atelier (versatile liquid pigment used by artist like Lady Gaga & Madonna)
Grooming Lounge
Intelligent Nutrients
Julie Hewett
Love & Toast
Mario Badescu (superb skincare for problem skin)
Miss Ferling
Models Own (super pigmented nail polish)
MOR (my favourite scented soap and candle)
Nail Rock

PURE by phytocare
Sara Happ (super cool lip scrub)
Sigma Beauty (the brushes are legendary!)
Sleek Makeup (the eyeshadow palettes are to die for!)
The Konjac Sponge Company
This Works
Vitamin Science

... and many more.

I’m so excited over Luxola because most of the brands are not available Malaysia. I always watch Youtube videos from US beauty gurus and read beauty blogs from all over the world... there are some good brands that are not available in Malaysia that I’ve been wanting to try. Luxola is really a saviour!

If you check out the site, some of the products are sold exclusively on Luxola only. If you’re a fan of exclusive beauty products, you will be able to find a lot of wonderful items. However, my favourite part of the site is the Sale section.

Can you believe it, DUO eyelash glue is only RM17.50?????? If you buy from retail here it is going to cost you RM42. 

And.... the famous Face Atelier face tint is only RM72.50!!!!!! And this is the product used by many famous artists.

If you buy above RM200, you'll get a complimentary free shipping by DHL. Your order will arrive at your door steps within 48 hours. 

Luxola is not just a shopping portal, it is a growing beauty community online. If you click on the magazine tab, the link will bring you to their blog. There are so many beauty information to digest on the blog. I particularly love the step-by-step nail art posts.

Go to site and go through all the products. Then comment on this blog post below to let me know which is your favorite product. If you manage to pick one of my favorite product, I will send you a little surprise gift that I've got from Luxola as well. It is not that hard because I love so many things from that site. I will announce the winner next week Monday (1st Oct). This serves as my October giveaway. This comes a little bit earlier because I can't contain my excitement anymore!!!

Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge's Style File in Malaysia

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge continued their South-East Asian Diamond Jubilee Tour from Singapore to Malaysia. Upon arrival, the Duchess was seen with her hair up, wearing Beulah 'Sabitri' powder-blue knee-length dress to respect Malaysia's conservative public dress code. The billowing sleeves and button down front dress was a perfect choice.

Of course, she paired it with her favorite L.K. Bennet nude pumps which was seen accompanying her during her tour throughout.

During the official dinner, she had put on a wonderful piece from Alexander McQueen. The dress has sweethearth neckline and sheer overlay. The dress is decorated in gold hibiscus flower, which is Malaysia's national flower.

While attending high tea in British High Commission, the Duchess wore a pale blue dress with lace overlay from Temperly London Fall 2012 collection.

What I love the most from this outfit is her hairdo.

Lastly, she wore a pair of anonymous outfit to Borneo Rainforest Research Centre. I can't seem to recognize her pants, shirt and belt. Anyone care to educate me?

Which was your favorite dress from the Duchess of Cambridge in Malaysia? Mine is the Temperly London.
