KK Burger Bakar, Market 88 , Kepayan

Last week, a bunch of us bloggers were invited to another KK Burger Bakar review.
Previously, we did one when they were in Tanjung Aru Plaza.
You can read all about it here.

It was really awesome to be invited again for another review with KK Burger Bakar
as I am a huge fan of their homemade burgers! Good to see that they finally expanded their business.
People need to taste these mouth-watering burgers!

I love this really vintage retro inspired collage!

The environment and setup was really simple and spacious!
Feels like home especially with the orange lights.

For those who've had the KK Burger Bakar burgers before, I have good news!
They're back with more burgers! Bigger, tastier and more varieties!
Their menus are flooded with loads of different treats for everyone of all ages
as well as for those who has different taste buds and cravings.

Classic Titanic

Classic Salsa Chic Green Day Bun

Chicken lovers out there!
This is for you!

Classic Double Six Charcoal Bun

Juicy and delicious patties!
Double patties for this burger!

Classic Lava Gunung Kinabalu Charcoal Bun

This is my favourite!
Its from the classic menu but this time made better.
Its with the healthier Charcoal Bun!

Classic Angry Bird

Ini Kali La PRA

To those who doesn't want the buns, you can order this!
Its a bunless burger!

For those who loves red meat, they have beef and lamb patties as well!
How awesome is that! Win-win situation for all!

Majority of the bloggers for this reviews are ladies and boy was it good to have
all the burgers to ourselves!

Our hungry tummy and the burgers!
Best treat ever after my crossfit training! Sinful and delicious!

I manage to have a few words with the owner of the place. Her name is Ayu Yahya.
Known her from the first day we met at Tanjung Aru Plaza and it was good to see
her business and passion growing bigger!

Here's what I managed to find out about the newly expanded KK Burger Bakar :

Me : When did you guys open for business? 
Ayu : Actually, we plan to open officially at the end of March 2014.
We are still in the midst of discussing the opening date. As for now, we are having this
Classic Opening which means that we are only serving what's on the classic menu at the moment.

Me : Did some of the names of the classic burgers renamed in the menus?
Ayu : Yup! Especially on the classic menu!

Me : What gave you the idea to come up with Rosy Red, Charcoal and Green Day buns 
instead of just the classic buns?
Ayu : Its unique! Instead of having just the classic buns,we have come up with 3 types of our special buns which is Rose Velvet (red bun with a hint of rose flavour), Green Day bun (green bun with a hint of green tea flavour) and the all healthy bun, Charcoal bun!

Me : Any plans of adding different types of food choices into the menu 
such as cheesy fries, meatballs etc?
Ayu : Yup! Its up on our menu!

Me : Why Market 88,Kepayan?
Ayu: Cause' 88 is our lucky number! LOL! 
Besides, its in the center of KK so its much easier for everyone to drop by!

Me : Last question, any plans of franchising/branching out KK Burger Bakar in the future?
Ayu : Yes! Of course we do! Once our systems are properly managed, we will definitely 
 expand  KKBB all over Sabah!

Product Review : Benefit The POREfessional and Stay Flawless

Back in November 2013, I purchased a few products from Benefit which I was dying to buy
 a long time ago and finally got my brother to get it for me from Sephora, KL.
I got the Benefit POREfessional and Stay Flawless 15 Hour Primer
 after reading a lot of good reviews online as well as hearing them from my own friends.

*Image source via Google*

I really love Benefit products because of their really retro/vintage theme
and also the product is really good! The only problem is that their products are pricey that's all.
Overall, I am satisfied with my purchase! 

I have been using Benefit products for a few years now but I have yet to try out their 
skincare and primers but only their eyeshadow palettes.

I have used these two palettes for years and I must say these are one of the really good stuff!
Packaging made perfect for travelling and also to bring around in my bag for touch up.
Really pigmented eyeshadows and I really love the shades and the brushes!

Okay back to the POREfessional..

You don't need a huge amount to apply on the face. 
As you can see above, that's the amount you need for your face. 
Just dab it on the areas that has large pores that you want to cover up. 

Its translucent so don't worry bout reapplying or touching up unless
 it has been a super long day and you have an event to attend at night and you need to 
retouch up your makeup.You can apply this directly on top of your makeup 
but remember to not apply too much and dab it on with your fingers.

It comes with instructions behind the box teaching you how to apply it under and over your makeup.
It comes with a small pamphlet inside as well which is really helpful. 

I love the texture and smell! It has a very silky texture and a really sweet smell too!
Its oil-free as well so this is perfect for those with oily skin.

I have to say this really is one of the products in this world I cannot survive with.
It really covers up the pores and also you can use this for a long time since you don't need 
a huge amount to apply every single time. I always apply this alone and I'm out of the house.

Click here to find out how to use this product!

Now THIS is another primer I really like!
I usually use a liquid base primer but after reading reviews about this I bought it.
Stay Flawless 15-Hour Primer is a stick primer which is translucent like the POREfessional.
Just look at the cute packaging and cover! Really love the design!

One thing that really impressed me was that this primer came with a cap inside.
Now this is the first time I've seen this. I have seen other concealer,foundation and primer 
sticks that has no cap at all but Benefit made one with a cap which is really good.
Why? Because it keeps it clean from dust and other bacteria.

 Roll it up and glide on to apply and roll it back down after using it and then cover it with the cap.
It looks big and bulky but its actually pretty light and convenient to bring around!

I have used this for over 3 months now and I am very happy with the result.
I don't know about the rest of the world but I find that my makeup does stay on for a long time
and it doesn't crease as well. You can check out here on how to apply it!

I really wish they have a branch here in KK but sadly they don't.
I DID hear rumours that there will be a Sephora opening up in KK soon.
Hopefully its true so I can purchase more Benefit products. 

A few other products I really want to try out..

 Love how its a loose powder that helps to absorb the oil from the face in case your face 
gets oily and its best used together with the POREfessional. It also comes with a kabuki brush!

This looks quite similar to the Big Beautiful Eyes but with a slightly pinkish touch.
Perfect for those with slightly fairer skin! 

This foundation has A LOT of good reviews.
It was even reviewed by the famous makeup artist, Wayne Goss
You can check out his review here

More product reviews coming soon!
You can leave a comment below about other products that you'd like me to try out.
I'd be happy to try out other products for you guys!

Product Review : Real Techniques Brushes by Samantha Chapman

Last month, I have purchased a bunch of amazing makeup brushes.
I don't know if many of you heard of Real Techniques by Samantha Chapman but I have to say this,
Best discovery ever!!

Previously, I have never heard of Real Techniques before
until I attended this one beauty workshop organised by a friend.
She told me a lot about makeups and brushes as well as how to keep them clean.

she mentioned Real Techniques and it was the best brush she and her partner had ever purchased.
FYI, they're both makeup artists. I looked into their makeup suitcase and almost all of their brushes were from Real Techniques.

*click for better view*

I did a lot of research and found a lot of interesting stuff about the brushes.
I also love the design as well as the packaging for the brushes.

Below is a list of what I have purchased..

And then the door bell rang!
Just check out my brushes below..

Real Techniques Blush Brush, Real Techniques Powder Brush, 
Real Techniques Starter Set & Real Techniques Travel Essentials Set.

In case you're wondering why the brushes have colour on them,
I have already opened them up previously to use them but I store them back
into the box to show you guys how the packaging and all actually looks like.
You're welcome people!

*click for better view*

Its really awesome that for every brush or set you purchase from Real Techniques,
it comes with a guide at the back of the box. They even list out the uses for every brush.

Every set of brush you purchase comes with a panoramic brush case for you
to keep your brushes whether it is for display or for travelling.

Easy for the product to stick on to bristles and also it is made easier to apply onto your face!
According to the MUA (makeup artists), Sam and Nic.. its for HD results!

As a makeup junkie, I still don't really know my brushes well enough.
I'm so glad that every brush has a name printed on for quick reference.

Fold it across to cover up if you need to bring it along for your trip or any other occasion.

Love the extended handle with rubber grip below!
It makes applying makeup a lot easier with a longer handle and if you don't like keeping your brushes
you can just make it stand like this!

It only applies to the bigger brushes cause the smaller ones has a smaller surface
so it wouldn't stand as well as the bigger brushes.

You can check out more of the brushes here if you are interested!
I seriously have to say this is really the BEST brush I have every purchased
in my collection and I am saving my money to get more!
