Beauty Talk 3D Refining Day Cream review

today i'll be reviewing on Beauty Talk 3D Refining Day Cream from Hishop
which is Rm143.65
this is my first day cream ever (i never use day cream, just night cream and maybe because the populated BB and CC cream has took over the role as a day cream, people just thought it's okay to never use any day cream)
but you have to check up why it's benefiting to use day cream seeing that it is not harmful for skin if you over use it too much

well, Beauty Talk 3D refining Day cream has all the benefits we, girls, would love to have. And seeing that it has so many awards given to this wonderful product, it's a MUST have product to check it out ourselves. 
  • UV, antioxidant protection
  • Good make up base
  • Anti-aging ingredients
  • smoothen lines
  • Whitening
  • and Moisturizing our skin
Besides that, it has Various vitamins, whitening and moisturizing properties are added to delay the skin aging process, restrict melanin formation and increase the skin’s ability to guard itself against the sun’s damaging rays. On top of that, its 3D technology attracts external light into the dermis layer of the skin, coupled with natural pearl powder, to enhance your skin's smoothness and radiance.

What's behind the box:
1. Smoothes Fine Lines ( i do not have so i don't know how's the result for it)
2.Multi-whitening actions (yes, i was sun burnt before, and i can see i'm getting brighter)
3. Soothes and Repairs (their texture is not really thick, in fact after applying it is quite soothing)
4. Enhance Moisturizing effect (yup, not dehydrating your skin)
5. Improved 3D complexion (no more loose powder :D)

Vitamin E: Prevents oxidation to the outer skin layer, moisturizes and guards it from sun-damage, leaving it soft and hydrated.
Acetyl Hexapeptide-3: Smoothen fine lines, provides deep hydration to improve and firm skin texture.
Acetyl hexapeptide-8 (Argireline): Reduce wrinkles associated with facial expressions.
Hydrolyzed Soy Protein: Helps bring back youthful radiance in skin care.
Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein: Excellent tensor & film-forming properties to increase firmness of the skin.
Natural Pearl Powder (mica): Provides fine, porcelain complexion and smoothness to the skin even without make-up. This powder offers your skin a natural glow.
Acerola Fruit: Enriched with Vitamin C to combat melanin production, reduce the deposition of pigmentation and age spots and provide multiple protections from harmful UV rays.
Iris Florentina Root Extract: Revitalizing anti-aging ingredient that is rich in natural isoflavones to reduce the depth of wrinkles, improve skin hydration and elasticity for an overall improvement in skin tone.
Chamomilla Recutita Flower Extract: Soothes skin redness and irritation, it also eliminates itchiness and reduces skin inflammation. It also helps to prevent bacterial infection.
Sodium Hyaluronate: Rehydrates skin to stave off dryness and tightness, prepping it adequately for treatment products.

Let me show you the texture via my hand
looks thick right?
but then when you apply, you can't even feel if it's thick or oily, or sticky. It feels like your second skin. 
No scent (: so don't worry if you're sensitive to scent . 

After applying 
can you see the GLOOOOWWWW
their 3D effect DOES work :D

my badly burnt face
seriously i have no idea why i become so dark after entering uni
maybe because of the sun (the scorching sun and most of my class had lunch break during 12 which is where the sun peaks the most) 
my sis kept saying that "what happen to yoU! your skin so dull! omygawd!"
i was abit sad lah, hey i wasn't that dark before 
and ya, i keep sleeping late around 2-3 a.m due to assignment, online, blog, shop, bla bla..
so my skin in such a terrible condition , and i hoping this cream will cover my flaws up during daytime and improve it in the time being

so this is the contrast after applying. 
can see my skin is smoother than before, and i think the skin tone improved, but this is the first time i used it, so maybe you can't see the BIG difference in it yet, but hey!
wait till you see my final picture below after 1 week of using :D

like literally back to my old skin!
and yes i'm still wearing it whenever i go out because i am still afraid of the sun 
and since this cream protects my skin from UV ray, it is highly important i use it everyday
no edits :D trust me, if i'm going to edit, i will edit my fat legs too hahaha

Make Up Revolution Malaysia review

Finally get to blog about a review after constantly updating about my uni life. haha
so anyway, today i'll be reviewing on Make Up Revolution Malaysia , which was launched in London in March 2014. And do you know how much is their price range for their make up products? 
it starts from Rm8 only for one lipstick (that's VERY affordable) and yes they provide all the make up products you can name of for your face, for your eyes, for your lips, for your brows and even though is based in London, it's provides range for all skin tone . 

The parcel were delivered just in time for my wedding dinner. i didn't know they will be giving me palettes too! wait till you see the picture below. 

no kidding right? the colors are just right for my liking. This is Make Up Revolution Iconic Palette 1 - Rm32 (so affordable, and let me tell you this it's quite the same as Naked Palette which cost even more)
they have three different iconic palettes for you to choose from 
you can see more here: 

testing testing
sorry i'm too dark you can't see much of the colors, but it's really very striking. 
i have yet to try on all colors of the palettes for my eyes, but i'll do it next post.

This will be my favorite of all the products. This is their focus and Fix brow Kit which is only rm19 (yet look very expensive right?) 
and they came together with eyebrow gel (all the more convenient for me) and a tiny tweezer . 
omygawd, i love this set so much, they even had a mirror there haha
it's like a 4-in-one combo altogether (wait til you see my finishing look below)

Next is their Power duo red lipstick lipgloss.
they have two ends, YES, one end is their lipgloss while the other end is this striking red lipstick . This is only rm24. At first i thought it was only the gloss, then as i pulled the other end, i was very surprised , out came another lipstick 
and it's my favorite shade ( i do not like dark color lipstick)

The other end is the lipgloss. The best thing of the lipgloss is that it has this shinny little thing that makes your lips glow. Imagine wearing it at night, and all that's glimmering in the dark is your sexy pout lips

so i tried it, blending it with the lipstick too
it gives that watery feeling on the lips which adds more subtle feel to soften up your lips
nobody like dry chapped lips right?
Check out their duo lipstick lipgloss range here

And then there is another type of lipstick they call it Make Up Revolution Amazing Lipstick (bliss)
this is pink (a bit doubtful to try this because pink does not suit my skin tone, will review on this next post together with their palette)

Tried all three lips product on my hand
I STIIILL love the duo lipstick lipgloss sooo much
and did i mention they have a quite fruity scent(is that the scent? i'm not really sure what scent is that) it smells nice not like some lipsticks which is made heavily with chemicals, you just can't stand the smell of it even if you applied it. 

incoming their Awesome Double Flick Thick and Thin eyeliner
(yes, their product range is named "Awesome")
what is better than one eyeliner? is having TWO at one end, 
just imagine you just need to bring one eyeliner to create thick and thin lines on your eye

thin line at the end of my eye (using thin eyeliner (liquid))
color intensity ? 5/5
does it smudge? Nooo, it became one of my MUST bring eyeliners to uni now haha
i must say it is quite waterproof there is no complaint in this

Then i tried their thick eyeliner which is quite thick, it smudges a bit after that, so i stick with the thin eyeliner . 

My sister also had a go on the eyeliner
can see that the color intensity is REAALY dark, suitable for those who wanted the heavy look :D
and oh yessh she is wearing the duo Lipstick lipgloss too 
see how smoking hot her lips is haha

and this is the finishing look after using Make Up revolution:
1.Duo Lipstick lipgloss
2. Focus and fix brow Kit (fallen in love with this, i will buy a new set for myself after i'm done with this set)
3.Double Flick thin eyeliner

I tried to have a go on their palette (using their dark blue shades) to create somewhat a depth at the end of eyeline. 
okay, maybe i still need a little bit of practice on using it haha

Yes i really love Make up revolution seeing that the price is also affordable, what is there to complain when i have tried it and it's quite good :D
somehow i am very interested in their I HEART makeup line which has cuter and girlish packaging (gosh, you know i'm a big fan of blushers and this just rings at the right time)

If you're still in doubt of Make up revolution's ingredient (yes some might say  some products make up ingredients cannot be trusted, blah blah blah)
they have listed one by one down on their website to rest assure some of the customers :)

University Life : December

i am a BUSY woman, yes a VERY busy and a lazy woman. 
until i kinda abandoned the blog even though i hadswore on behalf of all my soft plushy toys' life that i will NOT let my blog dies just because i have no TIME and no MOOD to update because there's so much time constraint .
want to update blog, might as well take the time to study
want to update blog, might as well update one of your REVIEW post that will be due soon~
but then i ended up updating this because i want myself to REMEMBER
what i have gone through the whole DECEMBER

yeshh, so here goes!
1. Penang Hill Run

i just joined this event just for fun and because they offer 8 CSD points (worth it, but you have to pay rm20) everyone was so excited for it to start, we have to wait for 2 hours before the run starts, and guess what
we started to regret right after we started to walk up the hill
not even reach 200m we are already panting for our lives, no seriously, 
this is UP the hill, and no kidding, it was very steep at many turning points i really felt like gravity is pulling me down and i be rolling over and over like a fat penguin with short limbs. 

the fun part was that i get to walk alongside with some coursemates whom i never get to have a proper conversation with them before that, but during our walk, we gave each other encouragement (i guess its encouragement?) and we were pulling each other with an "imaginary" strings. hahaha
not to mention, lots of panting and sweats
but thank god it didnt rain
it was blazing hot~ not a good way either

i think most of them succeeded in reaching the top, 5.2km on flat road is just a fly compare to this , at one point i think it's about 75 degree steep (just exaggerating lah to make my blog look more dramatic haha)
i gave up at 2.7km , and waited Dan to come acc me walk down (he has already reached the top, he can easily take the train down , but then because of me, he walked for another 5.2km, gosh i really thank him for his effort! really really felt so grateful!)
going down was a pain, i felt my kneecap going "crick-crack""crick-crack"
sign of oldness hahah
but then after that i reward myself with ice cream and nuts
mmm , nothing beats homemade vendor ice cream. 

 selfi with coursemates :D Boon, the selfie-king (he selfie everywhere, i bet he got selfie in the toilet too :P) and Shiyun (a very nice and friendly sweet girl from Melaka :D)

2. Monopoly Competition

i joined this monopoly competition held by the Chess and Bridge club USM
(i initially wanted to join this club, and then thought to try out AISEC, then i fell sick during AISEC assesment, so in the end, both also i didnt get to join
but if it's based on interest, i love Chess and Bridge Club more 
yea, i'm a big fan of board games and i heard they even have IQ games and so on, these just hit me like a jackpot
hoping to join next year if i have the time :D

okay back to the story, 
I loose in this monopoly game T.T 
but it was LOTS of fun, i wish we can play it longer haha

3. Attended my first USM Jazz Band Annual Concert

remember my rant on why i quit Jazz Band?
looks like i bit my tongue when i watched the whole concert
i was on my feet each time they played something so good, i was claw-ing Dan beside me. 
This concert was VERY high-end, 
i was awed by the female drummer actually hahaha
in fact, the first time i attended jazz band meeting, i was inspired to take up drum lesson after seeing how well and cool she play. 
like it's the ONLY instrument i am dying to learn 

our OOTD for the concert :D

4. Attended Meteor Shower Event 

So the event starts from 8pm to 6.30 am (the next day) so practically we can just sleep at the stadium , on either the running tracks or you prefer the grass. 
i chose running tracks because obviously i have lots of fears for insects and i'm prone to insect bites. 
1000 plus people showed up for this event, you can imagine how many people lying on the group
(*run! zombies apocalypse!)

It was SOOOO dark i can hardly recognize any of my friends, if i ever stepped on to someone's head , it will be no surprise, 
but the adrenaline of yours just keep pumping each time you heard a group of people shouting they spot a meteor! and you can't see it
and then for the next 2 hours, i spotted one! just zooming across , 
i thought meteor is something small and it's shoot like a shooting star
i just realized meteors are like Round balls that plays hide and seek with you under the clouds. 
but i was so glad i saw it!
they even caught lots of glimpse of firebolts too (i never get to see those)

i went back around midnight because that duck had class tomorrow morning
Awwh ): 
Let's take a selfie in the dark! :D

5. Groupfie with the coursemates :D

dimsum with them :D
i can't get over their famous yellow pau ! seriously those are to DIE for, i really really hope i can get to eat it again ): 
Dan Dan, when you going to bring me eat ah  ?
gosh i'm so hungry now, grrrr *angry little pig stomps away*
OMyGAAWWWD I wan to go there eat again!!

because we intended to eat at this shop, we walked so far just to realize it's not open hahaha so we were joking "this boss has lost 23 potential customers"

groupfie :D

English Oral group

6. Christmas Party with the wanderers

and just two days ago i went to attend the wanderers' christmas party! :D
me and Danelle singing Last Christmas together, Thanks Focus for asking us to perform :D
the decorations are soooooo pretty! i first went it i felt very romantic actually hahahaha because of the dim lights and there are minions , EVERYWHERE
okay, i didn't know it was minions until they pointed it out that it's a minion
photo credits to : Ken the guitarist :D
(wanderers are an association outside USM that encourages youth to write their own song and be musically inclined at all aspects, that's why i am still "bonded" into this association through my love for music :D)
anyway, i was so sad i couldn't stay up till the end of the party because i have to rushed go back hometown 
but then as i got in the car
Dan got me this

cupcakes T_T Dan had never spent so generously especially for desserts to give me,
he even bought me my favorite EGG POTATO (which i ate it at that spot so no pictures given) 
girls like pretty things even though the cake is hard like sponge but i ate it like a baby 

7.Love of my life( Family and boyfriend)

Whenever i know my family will come down to Penang, i make sure i dig out some free time to go meet them even though i had a test at such wee hour. 
i'm back home for study week and i'm here alone ): 
most of my friends went back hometown and they get to see their family, but i came back home and my father mother and sister are all in Singapore ): 
sometimes i felt really lonely even though i had my aunty here to watched over me haha, 
well sem break will be here soon, SABAR!

and yes i do feel very lonely at my hostel all the time because my hostel is the farthest , so remote, so i get what my friend Suet Yee felt like in her room, that's why she say she rather study in the library, at least is out beyond four walls. 
but whenever i felt lonely, Dan will be there. 
Nobody eat lunch with me? i sent one text to him, he will acc me to eat lunch
nobody acc me go one place, i sent one text, he acc me to go to that place
i really felt i am too dependent on him, 
even if we just met each other for dinner, i came back to hostel and video call each other, just silently study our books virtually is also quite comforting 

and recently i am really very careless
i had left my phone and key behind so many times
left my phone in the hostel
left my phone in the car
left my car keys in the
and then left my phone in the car again (best thing is it's already midnight when i found out)

and Dan without complaint acc me back to take whatever thing i left out. 
i felt so blessed 
i treated him very rude sometimes, 
not only rude, i am also very clingy like if he didn't have time to acc me for meals, i rather don't eat and just ate some biscuits in the hostel alone. the fear of eating alone in public

what kind of fear is that.

that's why i am soooo soo grateful for him
i am a messed
yet he still sticks on by my side T.T

i am sooo glad i have you
Doraemon loves you (:
