The Twelve Cup Cafe // Penang

I recently went to Penang and stumbled across this cafe while I was in a taxi, so I decided to pay a visit when I was free! I was pleasantly surprised at how good the drinks and foods were.
Iced Americano, Tiramisu Crepe Cake, Belgium Chocolate

I don't drink coffee so I did not try the Americano, although according to my boyfriend, he says it is good. I am not sure what kind of beans they used. 

The Tiramisu Crepe Cake is delicious! I love how light and fluffy it is, I could have went for a second serving if I wasn't super full. 

I really enjoyed the Belgium Chocolate drink too, it is one of the very few flavored drinks that I could finish. I always go for water, but since I was feeling adventurous I decided to go for the chocolate. No regrets as on my second visit, I went for the same drink too! 

Soup of the day: Cream of Mushroom
Belgium Chocolate
 I love this mushroom soup as it is not super creamy. I hate it when Cream Of Mushroom tastes nothing like mushroom but just dairy! The presentation is super cute too. The mushrooms are blended really fine so it is super smooth.

Mushroom Aglio Olio with Squid Ink Pasta
This pasta is so good but very spicy! I couldn't finish and thank god my boyfriend loved it so he basically chowed it down!

I actually forgot how much each food item cost individually, however the mushroom soup together with the pasta and the chocolate drinks are only $13sgd! It is so affordable, and if I were to have this exact same meal in Singapore, I would most probably have to pay $20 and above.

Etude House Any Cushion All Day Perfect // Review + Swatch



Etude House has recently released a new cushion foundation in Korea, the Any Cushion All Day Perfect SPF 50+ PA++ and it will be coming to our shores on the 1st of June in all Etude House stores! Keep your eyes peeled on their social media as they are pretty active there. The cushion will retail for $32SGD, it comes with the case, the refill as well as the brand new Any Fitting Puff.

This new puff is thicker than their regular puff currently used in their cushion foundation range, and is made with elastic micro fiber that helps to allow even application on your skin. In addition, this puff helps to build more coverage with just one layer than their regular puff.

Have you ever wanted to change your cushion puff or felt embarrassed to use it in public because of how dirty the puff looks where your fingers slide in? Well apparently, Etude House has taken that into consideration and came up with a contamination proof coating that will help reduce the chances of staining the external side of your puff!



The puff was ultra pillowy and thick, which makes the application process really comfortable and easy. Using the puff gave me more coverage and is more long-lasting while the beauty blender provided a more natural look.

On to the cushion itself, it is a regular cushion filled with the foundation. It has a clean and refreshing smell, similar to the Any Cushion Cream Filter and does fade away instantaneously after applying it on to the skin. The amount of product the cushion holds is 0.49oz which is also 14g.

Now that we have the technical stuff out of the way, let's get on to the review! I've worn this cushion for 5 days straight, tested it out with different primers as well as different techniques of application. I am in the shade Sand, have oily skin and slightly enlarged pores around my nose for reference.

My favorite primer to use is the Fix & Fix Pore Primer and the Tone-Up Primer in 02 Mint (review coming up soon!), the foundation seems to blend in more seamlessly with this two primer underneath. I am in love with my beauty blender, however this time round I actually do prefer using the puff more which was surprising!

This cushion promises to provide 24 hours long-lasting makeup that gives you the perfect coverage, smooth adherence to the skin! It truly does live up to its claims, except for the 24 hours part as I believe nobody should ever wear foundation for that long. However, my foundation did last for 12 hours with one minimal touch up and that is very very impressive.

Makeup done!


It did cling on to some dry patches on my cheek, I spent a little more time to blend and thankfully it blended like a dream, did not appear cakey at all throughout the day. My uneven skin was transformed and looked radiant, all thanks to the Roll Spread Technology that Etude House has utilized with this new cushion.

Roll Spread Technology is a 2 step process whereby the color pigments are actually roll spread so that the pigments will be super fine and not clumpy, before mixing it with the Any Cushion All Day Perfect formula.

Nothing is ever perfect of course, one important thing to note though, if you have oily eyelids it is best to set them with powder. I tested this foundation for a day without setting it with powder and it did settled into some fine lines, nothing too serious though as it can be fixed with a bit of blending with the puff.

Will you buy this cushion when it is launched in Singapore? Let me know your thoughts!
