You can just buy another of the exact OEM 4gb sticks on amzn for $28...that's what I'd do.

THIS is the Ramaxel RMT3170ME68F9F1600 4GB DDR3-1600 module you have in your Lenovo Z50/70 laptop which dannyk65 advised you sells on Amazon for $28.00 U.S..

Laptops can be finicky with mismatched modules, so installing a matching 4GB module will insure there's no incompatibility between modules.

Also DDR3 ram runs at 1.5 volts and DDR3L runs at 1.35 volts, if you were to put in DDR3L in with the DDR3 it could make the DDR3L run at 1.5volts and if it works at all I would guess that the memory may not last very long as it is basically being "overvolted" at 1.5v vs 1.35v.
