3 Concept Eyes Cream Blusher

After writing some beauty product reviews on Muffin.my, I'd finally accumulated enough points to redeem 3CE Cream Blusher in Coral Coral. Hehehe.


3 Concept Eyes Cream Blusher - Coral Coral (RM59.90)

3 Concept Eyes Cream Blusher is a cream blush of creamy and silky texture. I chose Coral-Coral as I have tanned skin, besides that I noticed that pink blush has the tendency to make me look too washed out, so I tend to chose blushers with coral/orange colours.


This cream blusher comes with a nozzle type opening, so do squeeze gently to avoid spilling a big glob out of it. I only need a pea sized of this as the colour is very pigmented, creamy and blends easily on skin. 


Prior to using this, I rarely wear blusher as I always thought it'd made me look a little too 'clowney', lolz. But thankfully this cream blusher turns out really great on my skin, I really love the coral hue, it really does give my skin a healthy glow.


It stays on all day long on my skin, even during those hot humid days. It doesn't made my skin oily and it feels quite matte on my skin. Just the perfect cream blusher for those in countries with hot and humid weather.



éPure Amino Hydro Intense Cleanser & Jelly Masque

Muffin.my is the largest beauty review website in Malaysia. It's a great website to share reviews on beauty products, which at the same time allows you to collect points and redeem products for free. 

There's even giveaways on new beauty products, which I was lucky enough to win a few weeks back. It's a giveaway collaboration between Muffin.my and éPure,  which earned me these 2 lovely goodies, éPure Amino Hydro Intense Cleanser & éPure Jelly Masque.


éPure Amino Hydro Intense Cleanser (RM59.90)

A high performance soap-free cleanser formulated with amino acids, a mild irritant-free cleansing agent that efficiently removes facial impurities and make up, whilst perfectly balances the skin tissue moisture level by retaining it's natural protective film. Skin becomes refreshingly clean and tenderly soft without a sense of tightness, enabling proper absorption of skincare nutrients.


This product contains amino acid, hyaluronic acid, honey extract & XERADIN™


éPure Amino Hydro Intense Cleanser has a white milky texture, though it's a soap free-formula, it lathers quite well and I only need a small pump of it to wash my face. It cleans really well and leaves my skin feeling smooth and silky. Overall, it's quite moisturizing and it's suitable for all skin types. 


At first, I was quite worried this cleanser won't work as great on my sensitive combination skin, but it actually works really well in thoroughly deep cleaning my face without leaving any irritation and feeling of tightness. 


éPure Jelly Masque (RM99.90)

Developed by the renowned Dr.Yulong Moy from USA, ePure Membranous Jelly Masque is the first-of-its-kind facial mask with ACF (Active Cellular Factor), formulated for intense hydration, increasing the skin moisture by 30%-50%. It works to restore and balance the skin by removing impurities like blackheads/whiteheads effectively and instantaneously. It also inhibits melanin synthesis, which lightens pigmentation, balances uneven skin tone and leaves your skin brighter and supple with dewy fresh vibrance. 


I have never tried jelly masque before so I was quite intrigue to see how this product works on my skin.


After washing off my face, I applied toner and serum, then wait a few minutes to let the products sunk into my skin before using the jelly masque.  For hygienic reason, always use a spatula to scoop out the jelly from inside the sachet, then apply it thoroughly to your face, make sure it's thick enough especially around T-zone area. Then, wait for around 40 minutes before scrapping off the remains of the jelly from your face. Rinse off and complete your skincare regime.


The first thing I'd noticed while scrapping off the remaining jelly was there's actually some whiteheads that were pulled out. I was quite surprised as I never really thought this would work on my whiteheads. After rinsing off my face, I noticed a much brighter and fairer complexion, it also reduced the redness around my nose. I'd only used twice and the results are amazing and quite instantaneous.

If you haven't try out any éPure products, do check these great products out!

Maybelline Color Sensational Rebel Bouquet

Maybelline's latest lipstick collection "Rebel Bouquet" is a must have for pastel lovers. With a tagline "Now It's Time For Pastels To Rebel, expect a burst of feminine colours reminiscence of Spring Flowers Bouquet on this collection.

Maybelline Color Sensational Rebel Bouquet (RM30.90)


Naturally I need to get one since I'm a huge sucker for pastel lip colours. I decided on REB06, a nude pinkish colour that looks really sweet and feminine.


I have always worn pink, coral, nude lip colour as they're the only lip colours that look great on my small pouty lips. Any darker or paler than that and I'm going to end up looking really weird.


The texture of Maybelline Color Sensational Rebel Bouquet lipstick is quite creamy, the REB06 shade is quite sheer, which I love as I can always build up the colour. Do remember to  apply this on with a steady light hand as the lipstick can easily look unevern when it's applied too much, which I'd noticed the 1st time I tried this on.

I really love the colour of this lipstick. I was expecting a soft pinkish coral colour but was quite pleased to see how it turns out to look slightly pinkish nude on my lips. The colour looks more even and shinier after applying an extra layer of clear gloss of my lips, but it's not really necessary as the colour looks well on it's own, it's also quite moisturizing on my lips and doesn't feel drying at all.


The only downside is of course the non long lasting-ness of this lipstick. It doesn't last as long as matte lipstick. It's also not a kiss-proof, transfer-proof kind of lipstick. So do expect to see lipstick stain on your favourite coffee mugs. 

But still I love this. The Maybelline Color Sensational Rebel Bouquet lipstick  REB06 is a  gorgeous colour that gives me an instant pick me up feeling. It also reminds me of fluffy cotton candy, which in my opinion is always a good thing, lolz.

Last week I received this lovely gift,  LUNA Water Essence Founpact SPF 35 PA++ from Korean brand LUNA Cosmetics Malaysia facebook giveaway.

It's very creamy and glides easily and smoothly. It's also very easy to apply evenly on skin.


It automatically tracts and adjust to your skin tone, so this looks really natural without leaving any weird white/grey cast on skin. It easily covers my large pores and skin redness especially on the sides of my nose. It looks super natural and really made my skin glow. 



Overall, it's a great product to use especially for those who prefer moisturizing and sweat proof makeup that has longer staying power especially during hot and humid days.

After using this for a while, I'd noticed my large pores appear to be much tighter, it also made my face look smoother than before. It works really well in controlling my oily skin. I usually wake up with oily slick face, but ever since I started using this, my face appeared to be less oily in the morning.
