Is DDR3 compatible with my Intel i5-5200U processor?

I want to upgrade my laptop from 6GB (1X4GB & 1X2GB) to 16GB (2X8GB) and I'm curious if DDR3 will work. I don't want to spend money on something that potentially wouldn't work. This is the one I'm currently looking at this one. If there are any questions you want to ask, I'm all ears. I'm not really technologically inclined so be patient with me ^-^. Thanks.

Is this a guarantee failure if I tried, or is there a possibility of it working? Worst case scenario, what would happen?

I'm only curious is all. I saw that my processor could take DDR3L and LPDDR3 and I just wonder why DDR3 wouldn't work.

Alright, I appreciate you helping me with my question my good sir. If you don't mind, I'm going to ask one last question and I think I should be set after this. I now know to only go for DDR3L ram, but are there any brands that you would recommend? I see you posted the Crucial brand earlier, but are there other reputable brands? I'd like to cross shop to see which is the best deal I can get.
