Review: 3CE (3 CONCEPT EYES) Lip Pigment

This is not a sponsored post

Hello everyone! I've been wanting to post this since a month ago. I actually took these photos a month ago but I just didn't have the time to write it up. I apologise for the delay!

I've been wanting to try this product since it was really popular and the colours were really pretty! I'm sure all of you have heard of 3CE! Let's begin!



Product Information:
Product Brand: Stylenanda
Product Name: 3 Concept Eyes Lip Pigment
Type: Electro Pink
Made In: Korea
Size: 11 g

There are so many other colours to choose from! You can also mix them together to get the desired lip colour!

I've only placed a small amount of product on the lip brush. I also added some lip gloss because I thought that the lip pigment was very dry.
TIP! Use a lip brush for a nicer application and also use lip balm before applying this product!



You can also apply them as a blusher or even an eye shadow. Unfortunately, I did not get to take photos of them on my eyes (My friend suddenly called for a meet up LOL).


What Do I Think?
Likes:
  • I really love how the colour is exactly the same as the colour on the packaging.
  • A little goes a LONG way! I only placed a small amount of the pigment on my lip brush and the colour was so vibrant!
  • It has a very small packaging, hence, I am able to bring them anywhere in my make up pouch. They won't be too heavy too.
  • I like the fact that you are able to use them in three different areas of your face - Eyes, Cheecks & Lips! So convenient! You don't have to search for the exact same blush colour to match your lips!
  • You are able to mix different lip pigments to get different colours! There are so many combinations!

Dislikes:
  • As I have already mentioned in the beginning, this product is very dry and it does not moisturise your lips at all! It enhances the cracks on your lips. Therefore, you must always put on lip balm before hand and also lip gloss for shine.
  • It is very inconvenient to apply since you would get your hands dirty. So, I recommend bringing a lip brush with you!
  • In addition, this lip pigment does not last long. It would not stay and is easily transferred when eating or drinking.

Review: Innisfree Mineral Moisture Foundation SPF34 PA++

This is not a sponsored post

Hey guys! I'm back with a review on one of Innisfree's product which is the Mineral Moisture Foundation.
I've been sleeping really late recently (I'm not exaggerating. I slept at 4-5am most of them time. Don't ask me what I did. I thought that during the holidays I would sleep early since my skin condition was already really bad due to staying up really late studying for the first semester's exam. But NOOOO... I wasted my entire semester break. I didn't get enough rest at all. Really regretted it :/)

To take opportunity of this situation, I decided to do a review on this foundation to show you guys a better result of the product. Just a warning before you continue read this post, my skin condition is really really bad. Sorry if I scared you guys. Haha! I did not edit any pimples out - I rarely edit pictures except for the colours.



Product Information:
Product Brand: Innisfree
Product Name: Mineral Moisture Foundation (SPF34 PA++)
Type: W2 (Warm colour tone, Natural Beige)
Made In: Korea
Size: 30 mL


Claims to provide:
1. Deep moisture
2. Perfect coverage
3. Perfect fit

Details:

It has a very watery texture and it gives a dewy skin finish.

Are you ready for my current face condition :O :O :O?!

Bare face - after my normal morning skincare routine. It's so scary isn't it :O

This is the amount that I used for my face which is about half a pump.


I usually blend the foundation with Innisfree Make up Air Magic Puff because it gives a better application and it reduces the flakiness around dry areas of your skin. 

Besides that, it is also easier to spread the product as it is watery and spread really well.

It gives a light coverage. The pimples are not that visible in real life compared to the pictures. This is because I had bad bedroom lighting and lamp with creates shadows. You can also build up the coverage by dabbing a second layer of foundation. (I only had one layer of foundation)

And to finish off, complete the rest of the make up and do your hair :)


What Do I Think?
Likes:
  • It gives a dewy finish which is what I'm always looking for in BB Creams/ Foundations/ CC Creams. Don't you just love Korean celebrities dewy and soft skin!
  • Even though it gives a dewy skin effect, it is more hydrating and less oily compared to many other BB Creams/ Foundations. I realised that my skin is less oily at the end of the day after using this.
  • This foundation is quite long lasting - rarely smudge and transfer after applying. 
  • It also does not cake!
  • It contains quite a high SPF - SPF34 and PA ++. However, do not skip your sunscreen! It is very important to protect your skin under the sun!
  • This product comes with a pump which is really convenient and more hygienic. 
  • Innisfree products are well known due to their natural products as well as their eco-friendly packaging (In this Mineral Moisture Foundation, it contains Jeju green tea). It's really nice to know that the make up that you use don't contain a lot of chemicals as it could cause harm to your face permanently. 
  • It is very affordable.

Dislikes:
  • It only gives a light coverage - it may not be enough for people with very severe acne. However, you can build up the coverage by apply two layers of foundation.
  • Do bear in mind though, if you apply too much, your face may appear white or pink. Apply little by little, do not go overboard :)
  • It does, to some extend, enhance some parts of your dry/ flaky skin, but as mentioned before, you can avoid this by using a sponge or brush. What you can also do is put on primer before hand or moisturize your face. I find that my base make up goes on really well after using sunscreen!
  • It has quite a strong smell, but it didn't bothered me too much.
Overall, I love this product and I would repurchase this product as it is quite affordable. I think it would be better when my acne are cleared (which means less coverage is needed). The most important this for me is that this foundation does not cake! I really hate it when it foundations or BB cream cake!

Alright that's it from me!

Hopefully my skin will heal faster!

Anyways, I also hope you guys find this post somewhat informative and has helped you!
Take care and I will be back with other posts :)

Pawpaw Cafe

I'm so sorry for such a long absence! Been really busy with exams and assignments and finally I get to rest today. Looking back at these pictures, I really miss going out for breakfast with these lovely people (even though I see them all the time). Hopefully we are able to do this again soon, when everyone is free! 

That week, more people joined us since they were free too!
#PAWPAWCAFE


What should I eat? Stress.

Choosing what to eat is always the stressful part. Everything just sounds so delish!

Really love the environment at Paw Paw Cafe. Its clean, simple and not too busy. They also had a big window that was open for people to sit next too.

My Coffee Latte and Sam's Chai Latte (as usual)


Cold Latte


Vanilla Milk Shake

I believe that they were searching for something for the girls to see. We are not that anti-social =P


Sam Sam!

"Enjoying" our companny... Haha!

Toast served with Jam


Ngaw, I love this photo of both of them! 

Braised Mushroom Brushchetta

How desperate Josh is to take a photo with me. Okay la. I take one with you. *kidding kidding*


We also ordered fries since some of us were still a little bit hungry.

Overall, really loved the environment and they also provided good customer service. The food weren't too bad and their sourdough was so so delish!

Elixir Coffee

Hey guys! I'm back with a food post! I'm sorry for the lack of updates! I have so many posts that is overdue but do give me some time! I will try my best to arrange my time properly since I've been very busy with a lot of things recently. Anyways, back to this post!

Recently, I'm really loving Fridays because don't have uni (or rather, I start uni/work late depending on my timetable). Since some of my friends also have a break from uni/start uni late on Fridays, we decided to hang out for breakfast or brunch every now and then. 

We decided to have brunch at Elixir Coffee since my brother mentioned that their coffee isn't too bad. 

Love the art work!



Chai Latte
Chai Latte isn't my cup of tea :/ I don't hate it but I also don't love it. It's probably because I don't really like cinnamon. 

I got myself a cup of latte :)

Second brother also got himself a cup of latte

Cold Drip Coffee


C.B.L.T (Chicken, Baconm Lecctuce & Tomato with Honey Mayo)

Eldest brother enjoying his C.B.L.T.

Haloumi Stack
This dish was not too bad! I really love the grilled zucchini, mushroom, pumpkin and Haloumi cheese! (If you know me, I don't really eat cheese. But I really love Haloumi cheese! The flavour isn't as strong as Cheddar cheese. Learning how to eat new things everyday!) I don't really like the tomato and aubergine but this is mainly due to me not enjoying eating them. Haha.

Eggs Benedict with Streaky Bacon
This dish was simple but delicious! One thing though, both me and Sam don't like to eat Rocket (a type of vegetable).

Open Chicken Sandwich
For me, the chicken was a little bit dry :/

Overall, I thought that it was a nice place to have breakfast/brunch. The environment was very clean and the the staff members were friendly. Furthermore, the coffee as well as the food are affordable! They were reasonable cheaper compared to other cafes.

Anyways, I'm going off now! Gotta get ready for uni. As mentioned before, I have a couple more posts that I am still updating! So do wait for it. 

Love ya!
