My 1st ever NYX makeup

Assalamu'alaikum and hello to all, guess what? today i ve just receive my parcel from http://www.colourscosmeticsmalaysia.com/

Yes, dis was my 1st time to purchase makeup stuff from that website and Alhamdulillah everything went well. So here are few things that i bought from them, NYX makeup were the only things that i bought. This is also my 1st time ever to try makeup from this line. I heard so many people rave about this brand especially the Round Lipstick.


From left: Concealer Jar in beige, Tea rose Round Lipstick and Concealer Jar in orange colour.



They give a small sample of Tea tree oil control facial cleanser.

These were shipped by Airpak Express and the cost is only rm5.50



 I haven't try those concealers yet, but i did put on the Round Lipstick on my lips and it is so smooth and glide easily on my lips. The colour's also looks vibrant on my lips and im so in love with this lipstick. Guess it's going to be my favourite lipstick. However it is a little bit dry on my lips eventhough it has creamy texture so you have to put on lip balm 1st before applying this lipstick.

That's all that I want to share with u guys. Have u ever heard about this brand? If yes, have u ever try their makeup? Leave a comment bellow and share u're piece of mind! Tq. Till next time, see ya!

Nano White Products

From left: cell moist whitenor, night repair cream, omega day shield SPF 50++, refining treatment toner, intensive de-pigmentor serum

microfoliating clay cleanser



Assalamua'alaikum and hello to all, im back to blogging huhuh tonight im going to write about my skin care routine. i ve tried quite a lot of products before and cannot find the right products to be my collections of skin care routine. some brands dat i could remember using before were himalaya, garnier, l'oreal and argh i couldnt remember anymore since it's quite a long time ago.



What i could say about himalaya (i was using its facial wash) i think it is good product since the brand use natural herbs (the products claim so) but the thing is, it's made my skin becomes dry. i was using it before because it helps me to reduce my acne problem but when using it in long term my skin become dry and look unhealthy. so i stop using it.
My problem with garnier is their product didn't work on me. i was using it's facial wash, together with it's day and night cream. sure, they smell nice since they contain lemon essence which is the main reason i ve to stop using their products. i just discover that i ve an allergic towards lemon. i can eat lemons but i cant touch them including any soap which has lemon content *sigh



L'oreal works great on me but once i found nano white, it's the best that i wont look back onto l'oreal.

So, on one fine day i decided to buy a new brand moisturizer because im out of my l'oreal moisturizer and i found nano white cell moist moisturizer xD i thought to give it a try since it's claim to whiten my skin hahahah and i did try to swatch a little of the moisturizer on my hands and it feels great!

After few weeks im using the moisturizer, i know that this product is great so i keep adding nano white skin care products into my collections yeay!

Now, let me explain about the products in my collection. the microfoliating clay cleanser works as an alternative scrub. it's contain very "fine particles of Natural Sea Clay to cleanse impurities trapped within the pores" said by Nano White. it didnt makes my skin dry! i should add Awakening Snow Wash into my collection for everyday facial wash as it's claims to moisturize as it cleanse.

After i wash my face, i ll put on refining treatment toner. this toner as compared to L'oreal leave my skin fresh while L'oreal's toner makes my skin shine after few minutes of application. refining treatment toner helps me to "minimizing pores and removing excess oil without drying the skin". Next, i apply intensive de-pigmentor serum. this serum works best to "clear the stubborn brown spots, acne marks and other skin discoloration".

As i go out during the day, i put on cell moist whitenor to moisturize my skin and omega day shield SPF 50++ and at night before i go to sleep i would apply night repair cream to "whitens and helps to reduce the visible signs of ageing while im sleeping"

Noted that the sentences within this "..." are what's Nano White claims about those items mention :)

Anyhow, i love my skin care collections! they work best on my oily skin with acne prone. i would recommend this brand to u guys who's having oily skin, acne prone or acne mark skin, those who want to whiten their skins and those who want to keep their skins moist without leaving them dry after application. most of Nano white products contain moisturizer and no-greasy after feel! so cheers gals with oily skin like me !!!

Does the darwin theory fit in with Islam?

On November 24, 1859, Charles Darwin published On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection.

Darwin made two points in The Origin of Species:
  • Today’s organisms descended from ancestral species.

On 1871, in his another book 'The Descent of Man' Charles Darwin specifically stated that humankind ultimately shared a common origin with the rest of animate nature.

Right after World War II, Williard F.Libby developed the radiocarbon, or carbon-14, dating technique - dating of fossils can be determined. This lead to the founding of early hominid. The Hominidae also known as great apes.

Earliest hominids-found in Africa and date from the Pliocene epoch(7 million years ago). The locus or site of human emergence was clearly in Africa. Humankind's closest relatives, the chimpanzee and the gorilla, are African, and it is accepted by many that humans and chimpanzees shared a common African ancestor perhaps 5 million years ago.

Charles Darwin, in his “The Origin of Species” (1859) and “The Descent of Man” (1871), presented his theory of evolution. He presented the theory of the Mechanism of Natural Selection or survival of the fittest. Darwinism maintains that living things were not created but came into being by chance. Darwinism, materialism and communism believe in matter not in spirit. Darwin himself regarded his theory based on assumption.

On the contrary, Islam believe in the theory of creation. As in the Quran verses in surah Al-Mu'minun, (23:12-14)

And certainly did We create man from an extract of clay.

Then We placed him as a sperm-drop in a firm lodging.

Then We made the sperm-drop into a clinging clot, and We made the clot into a lump [of flesh], and We made [from] the lump, bones, and We covered the bones with flesh; then We developed him into another creation. So blessed is Allah , the best of creator.

In addition, Prophet Adam (pbuh) is the first man among others as narrated in hadith nabawi:

"Actually humans came from Adam and Adam's (created) from the ground." (Bukhari)

Indeed, the example of Jesus to Allah is like that of Adam. He created Him from dust; then He said to him, "Be," and he was. (3:59)

In my personal opinion, the mechanism of natural selection can only apply to animal such in case of extinction of short neck giraffes.

Speaking of Charles Darwin theory, there is no DNA research pointing to a connection between apes and humans as was supposed by the scientists and those who had financed them over the years. In fact, the barnyard pig is closer to humans in many aspects, than a monkey or a gorilla. Consider the fact, doctors use the skin from pigs to replace needed tissue on burn victims and the famous movie actor, John Wayne had a pig's heart valve installed in his own heart in a 1977 operation to save his life. It worked, too - until his smoking caused him to die of cancer.

Also, there are many scientific research that proves the Charles Darwin theory of evolution cannot be accepted and is scientifically rejected.

  • The laws of inheritance discovered by Gregor Mendel (1822 – 1884) and verified by the science of genetics have nullified the theory of evolutionary mechanism.
  • Neo-Darwinism advances the Modern synthetic Theory”. Mutations, i.e.; genetic disorders do not cause living beings to develop on the contrary they are always harmful.
  • The British Paleontologist, Drerk v. Ager in “The Nature of the Fossil Record” admits that the fossil records shows not gradual evolution but the sudden explosion of one group at the expense of another.
  • Douglas J. Futuyma, an eminent evolutionist biologist in his book, “Science of Trail” announces organism as the creation of some omnipotent intelligence.

Thus,the conclusion is Darwin theory doesn't fit in with Islam as Darwin believes that humans and animals are descended from the same ancestor while Islam taught us that humans and animals are both created by Allah. Furthermore, humans are neither descended nor evolve from apes.

In surah Ar-Rahman, (55:3-4)

He has created man,

[And] taught him eloquence.

So which of the favors of your Lord would you deny? (55:13)
