Exclusive interview with Yu Heng as the Freshel’s Ambassador in Malaysia

Last week I had an exclusive interview with Yu Heng ( 宇珩 ) who is the newly appointed Freshel's Malaysia Ambassador.  Yu Heng a very talented Malaysian songwriter & singer hailed from Bentong, Pahang is now based in Taiwan has written many songs for herself and other singers including Z-Chen, Twins, Fish Leong, and Ding Dan.

Yu Heng said that she is happy with her collaboration with Freshel Malaysia because she finds that Freshel skincare really works for her. She said that she doesn't like to complicate things and prefers to keep things simple. When it comes to beauty, the most important thing to her is hydration.

Freshel comes in 3 main ranges ; i.e Whitening, Moisture & EX-Moisture

Personally I have tried some of their skincare last year June and do think that their products are pretty simple to use and glad to find that some their products do not have fragrance or colorant.

Yu Heng's favourite product is Freshel’s time-saving skincare range which is the All-In-One Gel Moisturizing Gel, which has a five-in-one concept in a unique gel formulation that quickly penetrates in just five seconds.

Yu Heng who just got married recently said that the weather in Taiwan always changing and it affects her skin condition where she is now having combination skin type. Her cheek areas are dehydrated while her T-zone is oily. And she shared her beauty secret that in order to balance up her skin she apply an extra thick layer at night especially on her T-zone. And she felt that her skin condition has improved after using it for a few months. 

Freshel Perfect Gel Series comes in three formulas – whitening, hydrating and extra hydrating – allowing you to choose the most suitable formula for your skin. The thick & penetration formula delivers ingredients quickly. It serve as a lotion, essence, emulsion, cream and moisturizing makeup base.

Freshel Whitening Gel - RM67/80g
- consists active ingredient Vit C which will helps to control melanin generation and prevents spots & freckles

Freshel Moisture Gel - RM67/80g
- consists double collagen and hyaluronic acid which will help to moist, smooth and increase elasticity of the skin.

Freshel EX-Moisture Gel - RM82/80g
- consists of coenzyme Q-10, alpha lipoic acid, double collagen and hyaluronic acid. This is an intensive moisturizing care with an-anti aging skincare formula.

Freshel has 4 types of Mineral BB cream which all consist of skincare ingredients. It can be served as essence, emulsion, cream, sunscreen and tinted makeup base. Comes in 2 shades natural beige and medium beige.   

Freshel Mineral BB Cream (UV) - RM59/50ml
- Comes with SPF 41 PA++
-A smooth & non-sticky texture that will helps to reduce the visibility of spots.

Freshel Mineral BB Cream (Moist) - RM59/50ml
- Comes with SPF 28 PA++
- A moisturizing mineral gel cream that spreads well and is absorb quickly by the skin to create a natural and beautiful finish.

Freshel Mineral BB Cream (EX) - RM67/50g
-Comes in SPF 32 PA++
- An extra thick and moisturizing mineral BB cream that is rich in texture that covers visible skin problems. 

Freshel Mineral BB Cream (Pore Cover) - RM59/50g
- Comes in SPF 30 PA++
- Reduces visible pores and provides a smooth, non-sticky finish
- This is my favourite and I have tried it personally during the previous event. Love how my pores looked smaller and face is smoother after applying it. The shade medium beige matched my skin perfectly 

At the event also, we have a special preview of the new Kanebo Freshel CC Cream. Unlike the BB Cream, CC Cream stands for colour correction cream is a skincare cream that corrects visible skin colour tone by evening it out and reducing dullness. It's usually more watery, smoother, lighter feel compared to BB Cream. Although it can be removed with a regular face wash, I would always suggest to double cleanse the skin. 

Freshel CC Cream which comes with SPF20 PA++ has 5 functions all in one ie. essence, emulsion, cream, sunscreen and tinted makeup base. It also helps to camouflage dullness and skin colours to attain bright, natural skin without applying base makeup. It has moisturizing effect with double collagen and hyaluronic acid. 

Kanebo Freshel CC Cream is not available yet as this product would be only be officially launched in May 2014.

She shared that besides using Freshel daily, she usually warmed up the products with her palm before she massage into the skin for better absorption. 

During the interview, Yu Heng told us that she is coming back to Malaysia this May for Freshel's event and I guess is the Freshel CC Cream launch.

Review : Kate Spring/Summer Collection 2013 ; Goldish Eyes Collection with 24k Real Gold!

Last week I attended Kate Makeup Workshop in Pavilion and one of the highlight of the event is the latest Kate Spring/Summer 2013 Collection. 

It was conducted in Platinum Room, Level 7, Seventh Heaven, Pavilion KL.

Kate Malaysia invited Mikiya Hirai is a Japanese Makeup Artist to conduct the workshop.

Lucky we got translator :)

Isabelle was the model for the makeup demonstration. This is her BEFORE picture.

Below are the products that Mr. Mikiya used on Isabelle during the makeup demonstration. He would be creating Day & Night look.

Mr. Mikiya used Freshel Whitening UV Gel (RM67) after he removed Isabelle's face. According to Mr. Mikiya, this Freshel UV Whitening has 5 functions i.e Lotion, Essence, Emulsion, Cream and UV Makeup Base. Since it has SPH 26 PA++, it can be used in the morning only. For night, use Whitening Gel instead.

Kanebo Freshel Mineral BB Cream Pore Cover (RM59) , this is something new to me. It's a BB Cream at the same can work to help pore cover. I really like this because I do think my pores looked smaller and face is smoother after using this! Glad to find that the shade is alright on me too :D

After that Mr. Mikiya used Kate Powderless Liquid for Cover (RM79). I remembered Mr Mikaya was saying the liquid foundation will turn into powder in 15 seconds and surely it really turn into powder when I applied on my skin! No need to use loose powder after using this :D I quite like how smooth it feels on my skin :) 

Mr. Mikiya then used Kate Cover Concealer for Cover on Isabella, the texture is pretty creamy, well this is not my type of favourite texture for concealer. 

I tried Kate Eye Shadow Base for the first time, although this is cream in texture...I only need to use a little bit and I love how it smoothen out the creases on my eye lids and actually help to enhance the pigmentation of the eye shadow! 

Let's check out the highlight of the workshop, which is the Goldish Eyes Collection under the Kate Spring/Summer 2013 Collection. I remembered Mr Mikiya told us that in this Goldish Eyes Collection, each palette contains  of two unique gold pearl powders ; i.e Real Gold Pearl, a pure gold pearl powder with 0.1% 24k REAL gold, and Nuance Gold Pearl, a bright pearl powder with a hint of gold. Yes you read it correctly, REAL GOLD... how luxury is it to apply real gold on eyes right... !

There are a total of 4 Goldish Eyes palettes and each palette, you can see the word "GOLD" is embedded on top of the eyeshadows , which means those 2 colours have "real gold" in it. 

Below are the swatch for the Goldish Eyes Collection under the Kate Spring/Summer 2013 Collection. Each priced at RM59.
GD-1 is my personal favourite, I like the overall combination of colours of gold, brown and dark brown. 

Overall the collection colours looked very natural and with the goldish shimmer it would give a glamorous and sophisticated finishing! And these kinda of natural colour are really easy to apply & suit all skin tone. However I do think the eyeshadow texture is quite powdery to apply and colour looked really light in reality.. and in order to let the colour looked more pigmented, the eyeshadow base is definitely a must here.

This Kate Shiny Eyelid Liner is part of the  new launch in the Spring/Summer Collection 2013 too! Very easy to use & the shine is not too overwhelming. Perfect to use at the lower eyelid to make the eyes looked more dolly!

Kate also have Mascara base, Volume Gel Mascara & New Lash Extension Mascara (which is the middle one) RM59. I heard that the curved fibers can give 5mm lenghtening effect to our existing lash! 

Others Kate products that Mr Mikiya used on Isabelle.

The day look at Mr Mikiya created on Isabelle 

The night look (party) version. 

For night look, Mr Mikiya said shading is important to make the face feature looked sharp. He showed that the shading stars from the cheek bone all the way up to the side forehead. 

And now is my turn to try on the makeup! 

Naked face - a compulsory Before picture

p/s: Got to take with flash because the light in the room is quite dim :(

Well I followed exactly the tutorial in the booklet given in creating the Goldish Eyes using GD-1 palette.

My after picture

How do you like my makeover which I did on myself :D 

 Close up on the eyes makeup I did. The goldish shimmer is fine and shimmering and it must be because of the pure gold ingredients in it I think

 Look, can you see the BLING shimmering on my eyes!  

Must be the gold bling bling I have on my eyes that brings me luck..because during the workshop I won a set of Kate Goldish after answering correctly during the Q&A session! Yay!

 A picture of myself with Mr. Mikiya Hirai. He was really friendly and keep checking on my makeup when I was doing mine. And he nodded and said... good ! *happy* 

Me & Farah Hany, one of readers whom I invited along to the event...I knew her few years back and now she is now a web designer in Nuffnang office :D 

Looking at my picture, I quite like the Kanebo Freshel Mineral BB Cream Pore Cover & Powderless Liquid for Cover because my face looked pretty flawless & fresh here! 

So what is your favourite pick from the Kate Spring/Summer Collection 2013?
