There are basically 6 products in this Hada Labo Lifting & Firming Range. And fret not, will tell more about the product later. 

My first time visit to Roofino Sky Dining Bar Rooftop. Feeling delight because it has a superb natural light for photo-taking!

Coincidentally, both Adeline and me were wearing denim outwear! 

Our luncheon started with the welcoming speech and presentation from the marketing team of Hada Labo. 

Do you know how the brand name 'Hada Labo' came from?
Hada actually means water, and 'Labo' is japanese word for laboratory. Hence, the brand Hada Labo consistently work on the hydration of our skin, primarily with the key ingredients Hyaluronic Acid.

As for the new and improved lifting and firming range that comes in red colour, it consists of 2 key ingredients that are Hydrolyzed Elastin and Hydrolyzed Collagen. The term 'hydrolyzed' here imply that the bigger molecule of elastin and collagen has been broken down into smaller molecule for the easy absorption of the skin.

We were later being shown the importance of coorperation of both elastin and collagen as in the analogy of chopsticks that intertwined together.

As much as collagen(chopstick) is essential to keep the moisture and resilience of the skin. The elastin serve as a bond to withold the collagen like the elastic rubber in the intertwined chopsticks above.

Pretty Rika Jue with her intertwined chopstick.

To summarise, the new & improved range has the following features:
1. Hydrolyzed Elastin and Hydrolysed Collagen work together at epidermis and dermis level of the skin to give skin firmess and elasticity.

2. It infused with Elasgrow and Fermented Soymilk to boost collagen and elastin production that helps improve skin density, to keep skin visibly tighter, firmer and more lifted.

3. It has been upgraded to 4 types of Hyalyronic Acid (HA)- Super HA, Nano HA, HA, and 3D HA for plump and bouncy skin.

Alright, now am going to tell more about the 6 products in this range. The first one is

Lifting & Firming Lotion- Rich RM 67.50 

Lotion is resemble toner here. It is an essential first step after cleansing. The term 'rich' indicates that the lotion is very concentrated and it might not suit those with pimple skin. Gently pat the lotion onto the face until throughly absorbed, then you are done!

Lifting & Firming Milk RM 70.90

A light weight milk that easily penetrates deep into skin to restore youthful radiance and luminosity, leaving skin visibly firmer and smoother. Similarly, gently pat onto face after lotion until thoroughly absorbed. 

Lifting & Firming cream RM 78.00
For those who prefer cream texture over the milk form can opt for this. The velvety cream melts into the skin to provide an intense nourishment to stregnthen and improve the skin youthfulness. Apply evenly on the face and neck area, then you shall witness a visibly lifted, firmer and more luminous skin after awhile. 

Lifting & Firming Wrinkle Care Cream RM 74.90

This wrinkle care cream is like a life saver for me! I need this! Although I am still years younger than 30, but I seriously need this! One thing that I like is that the cream doesn't really sticky. The regular usage of the wrinkle care cream will make our wrinkle on  the face looking finer, smoother and looking younger! Simply dab them onto wrinkle prone areas such as forehead, below eyes and neck before you sleep.

Dab dab dab, please resolve my heavy eye bag issue , please~~

Lifting & Firming Mask RM 52.90
One of my favourite in the range. I constantly need mask to revitalised my skin! This Hada Labo Lifting and Firming mask has 4 serum soked mask enriched with anti-aging ingredients to deeply hydrate the skin and restore the tense skin after a long day. Just like lotion and milk , it is also concentrated in their texture. 

Lifting & Firming Essence RM 89.90

Comes in milky and concentrated form, this essence contains naturally derived Pomegranate extract and Lycopene. Lycopene known t boast 100 times more antioxidant power than Vitamin E that is able to fight the signs of aging and and pollution.

   Also, it is formulated with a technology called High Performance Penetrating & Deep Moisturizing (HPP&DM) Technology to drive moisture deep into skin. For the best result, use after Hada Labo Lifting & Firming Lotion.

Of course, not to be missed the chance of taking photos with some of my fellow blogger friends!

My 2017 CNY Wishlist from LAZADA

Hello~~ people. My blog is getting a little rusty now.  But I am now Back in Action! Stay tuned cause I will have giveaway of one of my favourite eye shadow palatte!

To those who are reading this, I want to wish you...

Talking about CNY, have you stock up the needed? If you don't have time to go out and shop, You can still stay at home and shop to CNY items! Headed to 

to do your last minute CNY Shopping! And after that, you just need to stay at home and wait for the parcel to arrive at your doorstep! 

What I wish to get from LAZADA? 

I actually had exactly the same phone 1 month ago, but it got stolen in KLCC. I was and still am so upset for the missing of my smartphone, because this handphone capture pretty nice photo! I wish I can have my handphone back. 

I am working as a teacher currently, and sometime I need to print some stuff, but there is no printer at home, so I decided I should have a 3 in 1 (Copy, Scan, Print) Colour Printer at my home for my ease of printing. With printer, I no need to rush to get my document ready to print it in school!

Sometimes you know, blogger need to carry large and bulky laptop around. Hence it is important to make sure I have my lovely social media medium to be protected. Hence a quality backpack is a must! 

I actually have eczema, then I need to use fragrance free body wash. I have been using Dermaveen Soap Free Wash since my undergraduate study. And my skin can be pretty scaly if I go expose under the sun without using this paraben free  body wash. I used to buy this body wash from a drugstore at Rm 70.50, but see!! It is only RM 63 here!! Save me Rm 7. And as a regular user of Dermaveen, saving Rm 7 means a lot to me! 

Last but not least, girls can never have enough of bag! Be it sling bag, cluth, stylish backpack etc. This so called Messenger bag caught my eye, and I knew I have to get this. And the colour grey, grey goes well with all the coordinate! 

As you can see, Lazada offers vast  varieties of different items ranging from electronic gadget (Macbook, Laptop, smart phone), to Clothes, Health Supplement, Skincare products, Furniture. Entrance to theme park , Groceries (milo) , etc.

I even saw Chinese New Year hampers from Lazada. Basically, other than car, property, fresh food Lazada has all the items you could name covered! Not only that, it also offer in special discount price, I knew it because I used to buy Dermaveen Body wash at the price of Rm 70.50 but Lazada offers Rm 63 here! 

What are you waiting for?! Still didn't get something in this CNY? Perhaps you could get it from Lazada here!

Best Collection CANMAKE Tokyo Review

Harlo, my dearest you who are reading this. Look like I will have my first 2017 post with this wonderful beauty review post! Thanks to Butterfly Project Malaysia, I was glad to received this 2016 CANMAKE Best Collection (which is made in Japan! ) as a Christmas present and for review purpose!

Now, are you ready to venture into the world of CANMAKE 
with me? 

This is how the cute pinky packaging looks like. It has 5 popular basic cosmetic to turn you into cute, Japanese-ish make up!Dont you agree from the packaging itself, they are already so kawaii? How about their quality? READ ON if you want to know more!

It has 

I  Stay-on Balm Rouge
II Glow Fleur Cheeks
III Eyelashes Curler 
IV Marshmallow Finish Powder
V Lip Serum 

Canmake Stay-On Balm Rouge

Canmake Stay On Balm Rouge is the first lipstick in my make up collection that has UV protection. So it has 3 in 1 function. Hydrating + Colour + Shiny finish + UV protection. I like that I can apply it without apply a layer of base like lip balm to hydrating my lips, cause the rouge itself already quite hydrating.

The colour pigmentation after first layer of applying. It look so pale here, but I was about to going out that time, and I didn't want to make my make up too heavy. It might look pale here, but the comparison with and without the rouge is quite obvious, which is why I insist to put on one layer of them. You can get a really highly pigmented orange with 3 layers of application onwards.

It might not be as pigmented compare to lipstick (super matte). I guess the reason of this is due to the hydration function that is ...less waxy. Which you can obviously seen from the photo above when compare to lipstick.

Canmake Lip Serum

Other than UV + hydration protection, this lip serum from CANMAKE is ideal to create GLOSSY FINISH. Hence, those who want to people to focus on their sexy pout lips should put this on.

I would use this lip serum to match up with simply natural eye make up to create a natural look with the sexy pouting lips. =D . But it is less long lasting compare to rouge above.

Canmake Eyelashes Curler

This CANMAKE Quick Lash Curler is so convenient when you go on a vacation to substitute the eyelash curler.  However to create a more consistent effect, I would use both of them. The quick lash curler can act as base coat, top coat.

It's main feature is that it can retain our mascara on the eyelash. In other words, it is waterproof, smudgeproof and therefore retain our mascara all day long. In the pic above, I used the lash curler as base coat. But after trial and error, I feel like this should be used as top coat after styling your eyelashes with curler and mascara.

Canmake Marshmallow Finish Powder

The name Marshmallow itself indicates something. It aims to create a sweet look that is light and soft like marshmallow.  And I mad love with their loose powder puff! Not only it is intensely fluffy, you can bend it in anyway you want and still look impeccable!

As for the loose/finish powder, CANMAKE Marshmallow Finish Powder comes in 2 different colour tones. It is either Matte Ochre (MO) or Matte Beige Ochre (MB). I got the MO one, and the main feature that I found out is that it instantly brighten up my skin tone overall. I would apply their finish powder over my face and neck so that my face and neck wont have 2 different skin tone colour.

As the powder is so so so fine, it does conceal any remaining fine pores as well as brighten and even up your overall complexion. I also quite surprise to find it can be easily remove by merely cleanser. 

Canmake Blusher

Let me indulge into the hard-to-resist packaging! Why are you so cute!  Not only the rose, flowers and ribbon pattern are imprint on different shade on them, and it comes with a mini blusher brush. The bristle of the brush is so utterly soft, like the sensation when I applied it on my cheek! The only down side of the brush is that...it is too short for me to hold it firm.

There are 8 different shades of Fleur Cheeks. And mine is the 04 - Strawberry Fleur. Which is basically different hue of pink with some warm and cold colours.  A hues to create the girlish and pinkish cute look with rosy glowing skin!

If you look closely, there is some shiny particle on top it. It meant cater of Asian Skin which girl who stay in hot and humid country might experience oily skin that can cause annoyance. It creates a skin glowing effect yet remain translucence. Also, it has sebum absorbing powder (silica) that is oil absorbent that absorb any excess sebum. 

Not only that, the luster finish of the blusher can be used as eye shadow to create the girly look too!

Overall, I can really feel like this set of 5 items best collection has everything basic included to craft the girlish , innocent look.  I love the 5 hues blusher the most as I can craft different mood using different hue. Once again, special thanks for Butterfly Project Malaysia for providing us the opportunity to review this. and CANMAKE Tokyo for sponsor this awesome 2016 Canmake Best Collection!
