Hada Labo Premium Hydrating Cream Review! (+Video)



This is not a new product from Hada Labo but it has been one moisturising cream that I trust for the past 3-4 months as my skin wasn't really enjoying the Waso moisturiser anymore. It's not a bad moisturiser, in fact it's a really nice one but I think my skin didn't really like the Waso's strong scent in the moisturiser as much as my nose does. So I had to switch it up. 

I've been sent this Hada Labo Premium Hydrating Cream for quite a while but I didn't really care much for it because in the past I've used some of Hada Labo's moisturiser and it wasn't up to my expectations. However, since I was desperate for a new one, I'll try any cream.

Physicians Formula InstaReady Makeup Review (+Video)


Finally edited this video, it has been in my work list for so long.

I first saw this InstaReady products from Physicians Formula (PF) instagram and instantly thought that the trio blusher looks pretty cool. During a bloggers' get-together with PF end of last year, they provided us with some of their new products to try.

The products that I have are Physicians Formula InstaReady Face Primer, Physicians Formula InstaReady Full Coverage Concealer, and Physicians Formula InstaReady Super BB Stick Blush.

Are they any good? Feel free to check out my video review below first! :D

WE MET AN EVIL VAMPIRE! 😱 \\ The Sims 4 With JQ - Ep. 2



The second episode is pretty short. I really didn't expected it to be this short, lols, at least I know now. I'll definitely make it longer next round. Aside from that, I'm really enjoying doing this series and I'm trying to do an episode every week for now but I really hope most of you are enjoying it too!

Thanks for watching! :D

Elianto Brilliant Riche Lip Colour & Pro HD Bronzer Review (+Video)


Just got these new babies in and the 4 new shades of the Elianto Brilliant Riche Lip Colour are apparently in conjunction with Valentine's Day while the Elianto Pro HD Bronzer came a few weeks before. It was the perfect timing to try them all out in one video. 

I've used Elianto before when I was younger. They were actually my very first few makeups that I own because they used to be extremely cheap for a high school students like me. I remembered having my older brother bringing me to an Elianto shop to buy me anything I want from the store with a cap of RM200 for my birthday. Back then, RM200 can buy freaking loads of makeup and brushes. I remembered being able to buy one medium sized pan of eyeshadow for only RM5, ONLY RM5!! Oh my, it was such an awesome memory. 

Unfortunately now, the prices of Elianto products have increased and I think over the years, they slowly rebranded themselves into something more current and in trend, that along with the price hike. 

That aside, let's talk about the new products that I recently received from them. Check out the video below for more visuals:

#Sims4WithJQ - Ep. 1 Is Here! 😱



THIS IS FINALLY HAPPENING GUYS! ❤️

I can't believe I'm finally venturing out into uploading Sims4 game videos on my YouTube Channel! I've been contemplating and wasn't sure if I should start uploading videos about my favourite game in the world on my YouTube channel that was mainly about beauty.

I wasn't sure if I should mess with my channel's momentum but then I thought, my channel should reflect of things that I like, there's no reason to start a whole new channel just for my video games and having the trouble to attempt to build them up both side, I don't think I can manage that.

So here it is! The very first episode of #Sims4WithJQ 😱

I had loads of fun playing and of course, editing this video. Took me a while but was definitely worth it!

I hope you'll enjoy it too!

The Original Beauty Blender vs. Grade A Fake Beauty Blender.


When the Original Beauty Blender was introduced to the world, goodness, it completely revolutionised the way us beauty lovers applies our makeup. Before this, I've never really find beauty sponges to be necessary in my makeup routine but these little teardrop-like babies changed my mind. It makes a whole lot of different when you apply your foundation, concealer, and even cream products as compared to the traditional type of sponges. There's just something about them that's different.

Of course, when something becomes extremely popular and have a high demand, humans will always find ways to replicate it and sell them at a cheaper price. So, it's no surprise that you'll be able to find ton of fake "Original Beauty Blender" on sites such as shopee, carousell, lazada, and etc. These imitation sponges sometimes look exactly alike to the real ones as they copy from A-Z.


I think if you know you are going to get a replica and you don't mind it, that's fine as long as you are aware of it. This is just an awareness to those out there who have never bought an Original Beauty Blender before and would like to try one but wants to buy them from other unauthorised sites because they are cheaper, just keep your eyes open before you buy any of their sponges, especially when they are charging slightly cheaper and claiming that it's original.

From my experience, at times it's so similar that you can't really tell the difference unless you compare them side by side and my Beauty Blender Dupe Test video at the end of this blogpost is a pretty good example. 


What I like is despite all of that, the Original Beauty Blender kept going on and produce more interesting stuff, some in my first-look opinion are better while some are not. I won't name them out since some of them I haven't actually try yet. So, I'll keep my opinions to myself until I had the chance to try them out myself. 


The picture above is a good example of how a regular traditional sponge (left) performed against the Original Beauty Blender (right). There's a real reason why these bubble sponges became a staple and a holy grail in many beauty lovers' makeup routine, it somewhat smokes the foundation out and blends on the skin much better for a more natural look. However, if you compared it to a fake beauty blender, that's a whole different story all together.


Picture above shows two sponges. The one on the left is the Original Beauty Blender while the one on the right is the fake beauty blender. As you can see, they are so similar. If you have gift me the fake one, I probably wouldn't be able to tell the difference. Check out my video below to see more on the packaging and how they performed side by side. 



Here, I'll just give you the highlights of what I've found: 


  • The Original Beauty Blender has more pores, which makes them lighter, softer, and more spongy. The fake BB has a smoother surface, which makes it slightly denser and compact. 
  • Because the Original Beauty Blender has more pores, it does soak up a little more foundation but that's how you achieve a natural finish. The fake BB on the other hand leaves a thicker layer/ more coverage because of its denser design. 
  • The Original Beauty Blender is better at precision because it has an elongated shape with a shaper point while the fake BB is rounder. 
In a nutshell, it really depends on preference. The fake BB is not entirely a bad product but it does have a difference when comparing with the Original Beauty Blender. My advice is if you have the money, just splurge on the real one as the quality is assure and consistent.

My opinions here are based on the comparison of the Original Beauty Blender that I was given from PR and the fake BB that I have. There are many different qualities of the fake BB, thus it might be different with other fake BBs available out. I was told mine was Grad A but again, I'll never really know, will I?

Best Reasonable Bibimbap In Seoul! \\ Where To Eat When In Seoul?


Seriously everybody, this has to be one of the best bibimbap that we have ever eaten so far. We stumbled upon this place by accident after finding out that the restaurant that we wanted to go to were closed for the holidays. So we just walked around Ewha University Shopping Street and see what's there to fill our hungry stomachs.

Apparently, Yookssam NaengMyeon have a few outlets around Seoul, you can find them in popular places such as Myeongdong, Gangnam, and Hongdae. The shop that we ate at is located near Ewha University and just a few stores away from the popular Mister Bossam restaurant. Directions is provided at the end of the blog.

4 Things That I Like About The New NYX Store In Malaysia


I had the opportunity to attend the launch of the new NYX store in Sunway Pyramid last week and I was quite impressed with all the products that they have in store. NYX Cosmetics is such a huge brand in the states as most of their products are not only amazing, they are also quite affordable. 

Of course, bringing them down to Malaysia, it's not the cheapest brand but it's definitely reasonable as it falls in between the drugstore price and a high end price, probably a little bit closer to the cheaper price since drug store brands in Malaysia are not entirely dirt cheap these days too. 


Unfortunately, I didn't managed to take a good picture of the entire store cause the launch was filled with people and I didn't enjoy cramping in with everyone (It's just me, I generally try to avoid crowds), so I pretty much just walk one round to see what they have for us and I was not disappointed. Here are the few things that I like about the new NYX store.

How To Enjoy Ramyeon/Instant Noodles At Han River When In Seoul! \\ What To Do In Seoul


I believe it was early last year when a video of people cooking instant noodles and enjoying them by the Han River in Korea went viral. It was a super cool concept and I told myself if I had the chance to go around Seoul myself, experiencing ramyeon at Han River will definitely be on top of my list. Many months later, Dex and I had a trip to Seoul and did this together.

While planning this trip, I was so focused on trying to find which Han River that has this special cooking machine. I thought it was only one particular place sell this but it's actually not. I believe by now, pretty much any park that's by the Han River allows you to have this experience as long as they have a convenient store.


We've chosen to visit Yeouido Park by the Han River since it was one of the recommended place that my sis-in-law mentioned and she's not wrong, the park was beautiful. I personally do recommend this park too.
