Hi all!

I’ve post a product for body today, makeup for the face, now it’s time for the hair.

Thank you so much L’Oreal Professionnel Indonesia for the gorgeous Mythic Oil.

Details from: http://lorealprofessionnel.co.uk

Enriched with a special blend of avocado and grape seed oil, this lightweight oil cares and pampers all hair types. Nourishing even the finest hair, the formula leaves hair looking shiny, feeling nourished and supple.

Before blow-drying, your hairdresser will diligently apply Mythic Oil to various sections of the hair, allowing the formula to pamper your tired locks. Followed by a look transforming blow-dry, hair is left looking shiny and feeling supple.

Finish your look with a touch of sparkle using L’Oréal Professionnel’s Mythic Oil. Apply to dry hair as a finishing touch, this lightweight oil leaves hair feeling nourished and supple with added looking shine.

 

I love the packaging and has been hearing a lot of praises about the product, how universal it is and useful as well.


Can be use for any hair type. Men or Women. Just make sure to never put it on the scalp, the product is meant for hair strands.

I pumped it once and this lightweight oil burst in delightful scent. Rich, nutty and luxurious. I used it after towel-dried my hair and before blow drying. Unlike other serum which can be heavy or even greasy the Mythic Oil provide shines without the grease, radiant hair without being limp, and gloss without losing it’s style.

My colored hair seems healthier, supple and still fluffy but in order as it helps lessen frizzy hairs.

Best for: All skin types
How it works: Provides 24-hour hydration Leaves skin feeling soft all over Exotic, intriguing scent


My review:

The sweet scent is indeed sweet, so sweet that I fear that ants will come and take me away. I use the thick cream first on my elbow, knees and those bumps on the side of the ankles. Followed by the lighter cream all over my body. It was wonderful and hmm, have you ever try on something that you didn’t know you need it until you actually using it? For me this is the felling and experience that I get.

Other lotion would be perfect on some parts but left the other dry, or too rich on most part yet so perfect for the other. This is it, the one that completed the routine. Body Butter Duo have both.

Comes in 4 varieties and selling price in Indonesia is Rp. 189.000 (psst, TBS is having a 30% off on their online shop now).


Knock, knock, knock!

And here’s my reviews:

.

The Color Correcting Primer are light diffuser alright, it helps brighten up the skin in an instant. Have you noticed that when taking pictures some part of the skin can look dull or even darker, like there are shades. That’s because some part of the skin can reflects the lights better while some don’t.

It could be because those parts are healthier, more radiant, etc. But with Color Correcting Primer you get that overall radiant skin in an instant. Will you be able to look at it with naked eyes, unfortunately no, but do take a picture and see the difference.

What you can see is the matte effect, soft to the touch feeling and velvety smooth skin. No visible large pores, less lines and younger looking skin with radiance.

.

The mousse.

After shaking the bottle, the mousse still didn’t come out as perfect as I thought. It’s kinda like frog eggs piling up heehee. And since it’s fragrance free, the smell kinda medicinal for me. Definitely not a fan.

Since the mousse is in Medium Beige, the color and tone is way too dark for me, so I just tried them on my hands.

.

The before after picture shows how tan my skin look like after using it, hmm perhaps when I want to look tanned, I’ll use it ^__^

The mousse is perfect to be used after the color correcting primer, both of them increases the radiance of the skin so they look, well, photo ready. Even thou’ the mousse is not perfectly foamed, it still glide lightly on the skin. It’s not as light as other brand with higher price. The coverage itself is medium, suitable for a natural look without being too heavy. There are some shimmers noticeable, they are like particles that reflect lights, so no paparazzi can catch you off guard.

Overall, it is an affordable product that delivers result. But I wish the texture could be lighter, less glossy, and doesn’t have that smell, I guess a bit scented will be alright  ^0^

Tips: Use the primer first for more a smoother finish. When applying the mousse, it is better to use a foundation brush, it helps the application to be lighter and softer look too. After using the mousse a simple loose powder will help sets everything.

Hello everyone!

I just want to share a collection I recently have from Estee Lauder Indonesia. The gift is actually from Wacoal Indonesia but sponsored by Estee Lauder.

From the back of the box I can clearly see there are a lot of items there, according to Wacoal the prize is around Rp. 5 mio if they are sold separately. I am fully aware that the collection are not meant to be sold individually but as a package. In Europe the package get be bought for as little as Rp.850.000 after purchasing a perfume. So it was quite a steal.

The inside look of the red bag. The bag itself is very cute, like a small luggage. I’ll use it for my makeup and beauty products collections. There are also a mirror and light purse in it. All in daring red and gold, hmm felt like Christmas. I think this is their Christmas 2011 Blockbuster.

All the colors, shade and tones are wearable for daily look. Nothing bold or irrelevant, they are all Estee Lauder classic look. Demure, sophisticated and elegant.

 I’ll try to create multiple look with these goodies and show you some pictures later on ^__^

See you!


Hi pretty ladies!

You’ve read my post of my recent encounter with Anna Sui: HERE, now I’ll give you the nail color in 210 review.

Please take a look at Anna Sui website to found out more.

There are 32 colors and which one I’ve tried? The classic Anna Sui’s color, yes, deep purple.

The scent is ah-may-zingg I meant it. There’s tea rose everywhere and it stays on the nails up to 3 days. I kept sniffing my nails \^0^/

I really love the depth of color, it was intense. Now, I’ve used it for 5 days and they are still so pretty. It doesn’t chipped easily.

When it was applied the lacquer felt a bit runny and has to be applied 3 times to achieve the perfect color for me. It dries quite fast, not 60 seconds but still in minutes.

The bottle is awesome. Like every items from Anna Sui, they are collectibles.


I love it!

Thank you Anna Sui Indonesia


Another product from The Body Shop is here ^__^

This product has been a family favorite for quite some time. I’ve been married to my husband for 7 years and since the beginning we both love it, he has an acne prone skin while I’m a true hater of germs. So the theme tea tree brings where it has antibacterial agents just click me.

Bonus point: the self foaming cleanser made sure the foam are gentle and soft enough for any skin type.

A refreshing instant foaming cleanser to gently but effectively cleanse the skin, removing make-up, dirt and impurities. Regular use helps keep skin blemish free, refreshed and calm.

There is a slight tingling cool sensation while using it and I consider it as a bonus point. The cleansing properties also wonderful, gentle yet gives the skin the cleanliness it need skin the product made for acne skin type. It also lessen the sebum.

But even thou’ it claims to remove makeup, I still suggest to use makeup remover before this foam, since it wont be able to clean waterproof makeup nor thick heavy layers.

Price Rp. 129.000


Bonjour dames!

Last week I was invited by Lancome for a makeup duel. It was held in Mal Taman Anggrek at the atrium.

The team are sets and Lancome also introducing their new items, Hypnose Doll Eyes.

What is Hypnose Doll Eyes?

The secret behind doll lashes, finally revealed!
Lancôme’s most flirtatious lash look. A volumized, extended and full lash fringe for a wide-eye look.

The secret behind this amazing result?
A new, unique, cone-shaped brush provides an extremely smooth and clean application, precisely defining even your hard-to-reach corners and lower lashes. Combined with the exclusively developed FiberShineTM formula, it sculpts, curls and loads each lash for the ultimate shiny lash fringe. Lift and thicken every single lash without weighing it down. Push up your lashes for your most flirty, wide open eye look.

Yes, Hypnose Doll Eyes is a mascara

A mascara that will gives you a doll eyes look for being so perky and obvious. The eyes of a doll, round, big and alluring.

We will incorporate Hypnose Doll Eyes on the look. My opponent is Ms.Hanna, she is a beauty blogger who happens to be very sharp in creating a look.

Me and Hanna can’t choose our model nor the make up artist that will help us create our vision. We both have ideas and we are ready!

This is my ‘side’. Ms. Chika from Lancome will be the makeup artist and my theme is Dolly look. A french doll look where her skin should be as smooth as porcelain, huge eyes and small lips.

This is Hanna’s side, the MUA helping her also named Hanna ^__^ and her idea is to create a Barbie Doll look.

Ms. Chika started with the base and move on to the eyes. A pinkish eyes that can be used daily. The key to a rounded eyes like french dolls lies in the eyeliners.

Both of the look can be achieve in a jiffy, both our makeup look was done less than 15 minutes. Hanna’s Barbie dolls also focus on the smooth complexion but with pinkier hues all around.

This is the close up look for my dolly eyes. Unlike normal cat eye, on the lids the eyeliner are added so it would appear more round, almost like a half ball. To create a smaller lips, use a nude colored lipstick, followed by a bold one, like this shocking pink, only in the middle. I want them to shaped like heart.

The finishing touch is lower eye’s being lined up just by halfway to the edge.

Hynose Doll Eyes Mascara, completed the look with longer lashes and more volume.

Hanna and her model.

My model from front and side shots.

I’m really happy since three of us can work together so well, Ms. Chika gave me her input since she is an expert in Lancome’s products and the model happens to wear a big round eye lenses, it helps her eyes to appear rounder and wider.

This is us and our models, we are waiting for Lancome to gather the votes from the audiences, who is the audiences? None other that Indonesian Beauty Bloggers ^0^

The doll dance by Lancome while waiting for the votes to be counted.

The original look for Hypnose Doll Eyes.

 The decision is made, I’m the winner!! Thank you all so much, it’s almost a tie and it’s just a matter of preference, it’s just happens that the audience presents like mine a bit more.

See you on my next post and I will resume with products reviews from Lancome ^__^

Thank you Lancome Indonesia!



Hi all!

It’s not a secret that I love to splurge once in a while, not because there’s not enough product at home, but sometime I did feel like I can’t have enough.

It’s a very good thing The Body Shop comes in many promotion, discounts and even more benefit for the customers joined in membership. So their products become more and more affordable.

Now The Body Shop itself comes in many different varieties of products and ingredients. One particular product has many different range, function to selections of scents. The Japanese Cherry Blossom is one of them.



A lightweight moisturiser that softens, smoothes and hydrates the skin. Leaves skin delicately scented with the decadent Japanese cherry blossom fragrance.

Community Fair Trade organic olive oil effectively smoothes, softens and soothes the skin. Natural lipids work together with essential fatty acids to help restore the skin’s barrier function, creating a protective shield that prevents water loss and restores

Full ingredients
Japanese cherry blossom extract – Traditionally renowned for its soothing properties.

Community Fair Trade organic olive oil – Effectively smoothes, softens and conditions the skin.


On a daily basis I always use a moisturizer for my body, there are days where they feel drier and there are days they feel muggy, sweaty and too damp. I use Puree Body Lotion on those days for they are lighter, cooling and feels so fresh on the skin. The infused perfume helps brightens up too with romantic feelings. The sensation and scent last for 3 hours or so, but I never re apply

The gel texture lotion glide easily on the skin and remains unsticking, light and soft for the rest of the day. But if you have dry skin condition, the puree body lotion won’t satisfy your needs.

Puree Body Lotion in The Body Shop comes in many variety such as Grapefruit, Love Etc, and so on. Price range Rp 89.000 – Rp. 159.200.



Hi all!

When I first know about the fragrance I felt kinda intimidated, look at the name and how the word ALIEN are made. Kinda scary! So I left this bottle unopened and unused for months and months. I even forgot who sponsored me this product. I think it was a magazine, ups sorry.

So now I decided to try it on and I’m completely surprised the scent turns out to be feminine and lovely.



Oooh! A remark on the opening. Yes, anyone who owns a bottle will join the circle of Thierry Mugler. Cool!


The details I found on their official website. Please do read more regarding ALIEN collection and inspiration.



The bottle does reminds me of an ALIEN, an alien emperor \^0^/

Sparkle in Alien with the Eau De Toilette. The ephemeral pleasure of a bottle that is precious stone with radiant, dazzling and enigmatic powers that only lives once.


The color is ultra cool just like the design of the bottle.


No cap to be opened just spray it on the top and the burst of feminine scent will comes out. The jasmine is so beautiful, sensual and exotic at the same time. It somehow like Valentina, but stronger thanks to the base.

On me the fragrance last around 2-3 hours max. A bit disappointment since the starter is quite strong, but hey, it is EDT after all.

Overall, love the bottle, lovely design and colored, like a true gem, suitable to be collected. The perfume is lightly sweet, very feminine, but definitely not girlie, it show an independent girl ruling her own world. Suitable for daily use and on special occasion. A trademark.


Hmm! The delicious strawberry scent is everywhere the minute I spray them on. Not overly sweet, delightful, fresh and fun too.




It’s the Strawberry EDT from The Body Shop.

I remember smelling them back then, when I first know The Body Shop which is more than 10 years ago. Strawberry already become a hit, well, not as much as White Musk, but look, the line also stays.

The fresh fruity scent is perfect for those who are young and vibrant, it helps freshen up the mood and airs surround us. The scent last around 3 hours, using the whole line of strawberry will make the scent last longer, like 4-6 hours (depends on your activity).

Last word: A scent worth holding on to.


Care for some delicious fresh fruity scent?
