Introduction: Shiseido Aqualabel - The Japanese No. 1 Skincare Brand

AQUALABEL, the Japanese No. 1 Skincare Brand had instantly become one of my favourite skincare brand. AQUALABEL is a masstige skincare brand developed by Shiseido with over 100 years of whitening experience and first in the market to formulate Hyaluronic Acid. It focuses on Asian women and it is the No.1 Whitening and Anti-aging brand in the self-select category (under 2,000¥) in Japan.

I've attended their workshop recently to learn more about the products range.



Aqualabel is the daughter of Shiseido, therefore the price are quite affordable. It was known as the best drugstore products range in Japan back in 2006. There are also a hit product in China, Hong Kong, Japan and even in Singapore now!

The product range targeting working woman in their 20s to 40s (mostly Asian) who in need of products with high moisturizing efficacies and likely to have pigmentation and aging issues. Oh! Did I mentioned that the products are paraben-free?? (I love this!!)

Review: Bio-Essence Multi- Effect BB Cream


I used to be a BB cream lover but my complexion went really tan after a few exotic outdoors activities and sunburn. Since then, my skintone has been tan forever :( So I had to abandon all my BB creams and go on with foundation. Nevertheless, I love how awesome the BB cream look on me!! For me BB cream is a one step product that covers all your imperfection even if your skin are like the orange below. :p

Why BB Cream?

BB Creams stands for Blemish Balm Cream was initially prescribed by dermatologists to patients who had undergone laser skin treatments to soothe redness and cater to their sensitive skin. Most celebrities in Korea started using them to create a natural and dewy finish.

Recently, I received this Bio-Essence Multi-Effect BB cream for review purposes. I often learn the raves about Bio-Essence especially their face lifting cream and the 24K Bio-Gold eye products. As for BB cream, honestly I did not know they introduce BB cream until this product was sent to me. (I am such a ignorant girl) Bio-Essence has launched 3 different BB creams series: Aqua BB Cream (moisture); Bio Platinum BB cream (whitening) and the Bio Multi- effect BB Cream (Coverage).

Review & Swatches: NYX Nude on Nude Natural Look Kit

I'm all a neutral eyeshadow lover. Most of my eyeshadow palettes are neutral shades and I couldn't stop buying more. It's called addiction. :p When NYX are on their 20% sales months ago, I grabbed a chance to seize one of this and even bought an extra for my dear friend who's a makeup newbie.


The new NYX Nude on Nude Natural Look Kit when out of stock when I was trying to get it. Back then people does comment that it was a dupe for the infamous Urban Decay Naked Palette. I'll do a little comparison on that later on. Today, we gonna see how special is this kit compare to UD.

"An all-in-one nude on nude natural kit comes in a convenient case for easy and beautiful makeup application whether at home or jet-setting across the world! 9 eye shadows, 2 lip colors. Comes with applicators, mirror, and step by step instructions."
