Makeup Revolution Eyeshadow Palette and Lipstick – Tried and Tested

The most exciting color combination I’ve had so far…

makeup-revolution-malaysia-eyeshadow-lipstick-set-malaysia

I haven’t been experimental with my purchases of eyeshadow palettes. I’m someone who sticks to my comfortable dark tones of purple, green, brown, blue and always mixed with black. I love the smokey eye look, which gives my eyes an illusion of bigger size. Well, my eyes are naturally small. 

So when I got my hands on this Makeup Revolution Eyeshadow Palette in Acid Brights, it was a mixed feeling of excitement and a bit of doubt. Those are really smashing colors! But can I get away with those? 

makeup-revolution-malaysia-eyeshadow-acid-brights-palette

A first glance at Makeup Revolution palette can immediately give you a happy feeling. Just look at the bright colors. It’s rainbow in a compact! Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, violet, just missing indigo, which I believe can easily be achieved by blending violet with black. Bright, catchy yet comes with the shade I can’t live without —- black —- this palette is simply an “eye candy”.

Price: RM32.00
Pure sellout – dupe alert! These are the ultimate palettes with ultra high payoff. Collectable, we cater equally mattes as the ever popular shimmers

Available in 10 variants:
Acid Brights, Essential Day to Night, Essential Mattes, Essential Shimmer, Hot Smoked, Iconic 1, Iconic 2, Iconic 3, Matte Brights, Romantic Smoked

Color payoff is really amazing. See how bright the colors look on my skin. Among these colors, the top ones that I’d be using are definitely royal blue, metallic light blue, violet, olive green, silver and black for daily wear. White can be used to highlight, while deep pink, yellow, orange, pink and mint green can be applied for more dressy occasions. You can actually use deep pink and pink as blush!

Excitedly, I tried the palette for my first look using Makeup Revolution. This one will be a combination of blue and black shades. Here’s my eye transformation…

5-step-eyeshadow-makeup-tutorial-by-beauty-blogger

For this quick, 5-minute eye makeup, these are my steps:
1 – I normally start with black lines and shade on my eyelid and under eye 
2 – I blend with 2 more colors, in this case royal blue then metallic light blue
3 – Blend again with black if you’d like a darker smokey eye or bigger eye effect
4 – Apply liquid eyeliner on the eyelid
5 – Eyes are done!


The look won’t be complete without adding a dash of color to the lips. I tried on this Makeup Revolution Lipstick in Chic color. Although I enjoy deep dark reds, I also love light pink shades that just add a soft touch of color to the lips. 

makeup-revolution-malaysia-lipstick-chic-price
Price: RM8.00
Outstanding formula and so affordable.

You will be amazed at the quality of the lipstick? This is your MUST HAVE lipstick, and better still, amazing value so you can collect them all! Over 20 shades of this creamy, long lasting lipstick with high colour payoff. From nudes to brights, and mattes to creamy there is something to suit everyone.


makeup-revolution-malaysia-affordable-lipstick-price

This lipstick has a creamy texture and glides easily on the lips…and wait…it smells nice, too! I’m not sure what that scent is but it smells yummy. This one also has some glitter or shimmer effect. I like that the top cover shows the lipstick color so I don’t need to recall the shade inside. I’m sure a lot of us own probably 10 or more lipstick colors and it can be time-consuming to keep organising or recalling the color inside for each tube, each brand. This Makeup Revolution Lipstick is cleverly packaged. 
So here’s my before and after look with Makeup Revolution Eyeshadow Paletter and Lipstick. I love the blue and black eye colors and the lipstick was a lovely match!
(look at me here before makeup, definitely cannot live without colors, I look so pale)


Still excited to try and test my bronzer, lip power and concealer!

Contact Lens Shopping at MrLens.com.my

No time to rush outside to refill your lens supply? Save time and effort by simply buying online.
contact-lens-online-shopping-malaysia-acuvue-oasys-hydraclear
I’ve been a contact lens user for 3 years now and for the past few years, I’ve always been buying them at retail shops. It was very convenient for me before because the nature of my previous jobs involve regular visits to the mall and I can quickly grab the lens wherever I was. 

contact-lens-online-shopping-malaysia-christmas-deals

I stumbled upon Mr Lens in my affiliate program list and it looked interesting. Moreover, I barely have time to drop by the mall nowadays and I’m finding it a waste of time to purposely go there to replenish my lens supply. I’d rather spend that ‘shopping time’ for shoes, clothes, educational books and kids stuff. After all, if I already know the contact lens I need, the brand that I’m comfortable with and the power details, why can’t I replenish it in an easier, faster, more convenient way?

I decided to try Mr Lens for the first time, around early November. I ordered my usual brand, Acuvue Oasys with Hydraclear Plus, for bi-weekly use. This was the first brand and type recommended to me by the ophthalmologist and until today, even after trying other reputable brands, I find that this is the most comfortable one for my eyes. It doesn’t dry out my eyes and it doesn’t feel like I’m wearing contact lens at all. 

contact-lens-online-shopping-malaysia
I really liked the first delivery from this online contact lens shopping site. See the cute lens case that came together with my order, which coincided with the Halloween season. Oh, and it also came with a Chupa Chups lollipop! 

contact-lens-online-shopping-malaysia-mr-lens

The website is simple, functional, nothing too fancy if you expect it to be spectacular like beauty, fashion or makeup sites. Although I feel that it can still be improved, I somehow find it easy to use and just serves the purpose of letting you order the contact lens you need. It also accepts several payment options, including PayPal, which even makes it convenient to shop with. 

contact-lens-online-shopping-malaysia-with-freebies

I ordered for the 2nd time to replenish my lens supply and my contact lens still arrived together with a sweet treat. Hmmm, I’m not sure what’s the relevance of a lollipop with the contact lens but hey, we all enjoy free treats! This is really cool. 

contact-lens-online-shopping-malaysia-with-free-items


contact-lens-online-shopping-malaysia

Items are packed inside a resealable plastic bag. And another thing that I appreciate with this service is the included booklet of care tips for use of contact lens. I find it very helpful to have these reminders to make sure that I take care of my eyes and contact lens properly. 

contact-lens-online-shopping-malaysia
The prices are good, too! I normally buy this set of contact lens at RM99 from retail shops but I can get it for only RM85 with FREE delivery. 

I think that online shopping is now my first option for purchasing my contact lenses. MrLens.com.my also has other eye products such as branded sunglasses, glasses, daily contact lens, weekly contact lens, monthly lens, coloured and toric lenses. With cheaper prices, free delivery, ease and convenience, this is definitely a must-visit shopping site. I sometimes use daily wear contact lenses by Acuvue as well so I will order it via MrLens soon. 


According to www.mrlens.com.my 

2 week lenses are particularly suitable for being used for a period of 14 days if the contact lenses are removed in the evening. It is also possible to wear them continuously for one week. Due to the high oxygen permeability, your eyes do not experience a feeling of dryness, even after wearing the lenses for a longer period of time.

Julie Hewett Bijou Collection Lip Color

My latest lip colour purchase is a Julie Hewett Bijou Lipstick!

julie-hewett-bijou-collection-lipstick


If you’ve read my previous articles about lip colour, you’d know that I don’t really keep a lot of different lip colours. At the moment, I only have around 11 lip colours – 2 MACs, 1 Dior, 1 Inglot and a few other brands, 5 of which are in a cosmetic pouch in my everyday bag. I only used to have 2 lip colours that travel with me so 5 is actually a massive improvement!

A few months ago, I noticed this brand, Julie Hewett, in Luxola and it had interesting lip colours so I decided to give it a try. The Bijou collection had several colours with codes in girls’ names – Lulu, Jacqueline, Simone, and a few more including Celeste. Well, I would have tried ‘Celeste’ but it was in an orange shade which doesn’t work for me. I decided to try the colour Lulu. 

Luxola is very efficient in processing orders, I received my Julie Hewett lipstick within 2 days. This lipstick comes in a black box with simple and clean white text.

Julie Hewett Bijou Collection Lipstick
Color: Lulu
14 oz net weight, 4g 
Made in USA
Free from parabens
Price: RM77
Bought from: Luxola MY


I was looking for rose-pink red shade that will be lighter than my rich red ones. Although I’m in love with my kick-ass red shades, I sometimes need softer tones to complete my look or when I am presenting to senior management or when having a business-changing meeting. Rich red lipsticks can signify a woman of strength but when you have a conservative audience who might feel threatened by domineering personality, a sheer lipstick is a good choice.

julie-hewett-bijou-collection-lipstick

julie-hewett-bijou-collection-lipstick

The Lulu color is described by Julie Hewett as a luscious passion fruit pink. It is a few shades lighter than my Mac Rihanna and Inglot red lipsticks but darker than my semi-nude Dior lip color. 

julie-hewett-bijou-collection-lipstick-lulu

I love the texture and feel of this lipstick. Because it is formulated with camellia oil, the Bijou Collection lipsticks are hydrating and comfortable on the lips. 
I also love the simple, sleek black and silver packaging. It is very compact, slightly smaller than my other lipsticks, making it easier to slide into a smaller cosmetic pouch. 
So here’s my look with my new Julie Hewett Lulu lip color (gasp! I just noticed that my lip here before applying lipstick was so dry). With its sheer texture, this lipstick gives my lips a soft dab of color that is wearable everyday and for every occasion. Julie Hewett is definitely a makeup brand that I can easily get addicted to!
julie-hewett-bijou-collection-lipstick-before-after

And I just learned from the Julie Hewett Facebook page that they are launching this beautiful Camellia Balm in a stick form next week on their website! I don’t think it will have a retail shop in Malaysia soon but I’m looking forward to see it on Luxola.
