Hello everyone,

Thanks to Shu Uemura Indonesia, I’m able to share one particular item from their all-time-favorite collection, the cleansing oil.

I’ve been using Ultime8 for almost a month now and feel the cleansing not just gives the skin a clean feeling away from makeup and daily debris, but with a plus size ingredients which you all have says it correctly: 8 botanical oils which are corn, jojoba, soy bean, camellia, safflower seed, ginger root, olive & Shea butter.

So congrats dear winner, for being the first to answer it correctly:

Please send me your details through email at carnellin@gmail.com with full address and phone number too ^__^

Don’t forget to share me your review as well!!!

Hello gorgeous!!!

I want to introduce one item which is beneficial for all skin type and can be added to any skincare routine.

-*-



Details from www.laneige.com.sg:

Product Benefits

– A 24-hour long-lasting moisture essence that contains mineral water for skin regeneration and Water Pump System for moisture circulation to safeguard skin moisture and hold it in to leave the skin moisturized and smooth.
– Instantly dampens the skin with ample moisture and forms a natural moisture barrier on skin surface to protect the moisture that is in the skin.
– Contains chestnut extracts and seaweed extracts to enhance keratin turnover to fight roughness and energizes the skin for a smooth and healthy texture.


How to Use

1. After using the emulsion, release about a hazelnut-sized amount.
2. Gently spread from the center of the face towards the contours.
3. Cover the entire face with both hands to enhance penetration.

-*-

Yes, it’s Laneige Water Bank Essence, a product which I think is already so famous out there and deserve the credit on it’s own for being so cool. Cool as in, it is cooling when hydrating the skin ^__^

-*-


The products details are available inside the packaging when you purchase it and fret not, it’s a very simple product to use. I use it right after serum or before moisturizer. But when using the whole package from Laneige, it was used after emulsion.

-*-




This is the product, somewhat lighter than moisturizer and looks creamier than most serum. It’s like a dew. Light blue in color, feels so light on the skin and actually a bit like snow. When it’s melted on the skin, in an instant the skin responded and drink it all up. I feel the lovely hydrating effect and enjoy the feeling of damp skin and suppleness.

It seems like the product is searching for the dry cells of the skin and boost the hydration level almost instantly.

-*-

I’ve used it with so many other brands of products, from cleanser, toner, serum and moisturizer, so far it work perfectly fine matched with others. Suitable for those looking for a hydration somewhere in their skincare routine, oh well, we all do. Dry skin, normal, oily, all of us may have a benefit from the Water Bank Essence, the product deliver hydration and nothing else. Yet, hydration alone is needed for keeping the skin healthy, young, and safe from external aggression.

A moist skin stands through stretch, sun, heat, friction and aging way better than the dry one. Dehydrated skin will easily breaks, wrinkles, irritated and loose its firmness and get sagged. So, never forget to hydrate the skin from within, drink 8 glasses of water per day, eat a lot of fruits and veggies, and use a proper skincare daily to keep it moist from outside.

-*-

Thank you Laneige Indonesia ^___^ the Water Bank Essence gives me a juicy hydration everyday without any stickiness, oily feeling, nor greasy effect. Full pleasure all the way.


Hello lovelies,

how are you all? I hope everyone in a tip top condition ^___^

I’m going to share a product from ASTALIFT. A whitening mask with an anti aging in mind.

-*-



Details from www.astalift.com.sg:

Size

  • A pack of 1 piece

-*-



The details of how to use also explain well on the back side of the packaging. Clean the face thoroughly and use lotion prior upon mask.

A one piece mask is sold around Rp.145.000 in Indonesia.

-*-



The unique ingredients that caters the needs in aging skin with whitening effect is something I look forward to. Last week has been a tough week for me with the surgery and everything, it’s pampering time alright \^0^/

-*-


Inside there’s the package of 1 mask. All the details inside are in Japanese language.

-*-


Please do look up in the net for more details if feels needed.

Me? I just open it up and see what’s inside.

-*-



Wow, an orange colored liquid fills in the mask and feels very juicy.

-*-



The image of the mask is exactly like shown in the website, a thicker middle part for concentrated focus for the upper cheeks all the way to the temple.

-*-



The quality of the mask is wonderful, feels so soft on the touch and on the skin. The liquid feels luxurious and plentiful, it’s a good thing the mask can stay intact to the skin thanks to the cotton ability from the material given. It holds on to the face like a 3D mask, oh well, it is better than a 3D mask in terms of the fitting.

-*-



And the wonderful damask rose aroma is delightful. Calming, comforting and connected to the benefits in the ingredients where it gives the skin anti-inflammatory and analgesic effect.

-*-


There are still so many leftovers inside the packaging, I’m not wasting them and drop some on my neck, body and arm ^__^

-*-


After 15-20 minutes the mask feels drier than before and easily detach from the face. My skin looks instantly brighter, no redness, irritation, nor allergic reaction. The feeling is comfortable and hydrated. The skin feels so moist and plump. Hmm, younger and prettier in one session. The team from ASTALIFT Indonesia assured me to try on the mask since the high concentration of products inside the mask. So, you are guaranteed to feel and see faster result.

Tap the excess liquid after removal of the mask, into the skin using the palms. I followed with moisturizer afterwards.

-*-


Oh wait, there’s still some more juice left hold by the mask. I squeezed it and found more drops of formula, wow, generous amount for sure.

-*-


Thank you ASTALIFT Indonesia, it is indeed a must try item from your collection.


Helloooo ^_____^

I’m just happy I can sit in front of my laptop and write again. Thank you so much for everyone, I’m much better now and can sit properly again … but not too long heehee, gradually I will regain my health. Surgery is not a thing we should take lightly and always consider it as the last option, I know I do, since it is super painful X__x

Now, back to the topic of health thingy, skin is one of the organ we need to protect every single day. By keeping them clean, moist and away from the bad side effect of the sun. Is it possible? Yes, if we live in a cave and only goes out 15 minutes during the morning and hide for the rest of the day. So? It is impossible to hide from the sun? Solution? Get a sun protection.

There are a rack full of sun protection in every drug store, cosmetics, and even supermarkets. From the one that waterproof, tinted, spray, gel, cream, lotion, to tanned formula. It’s like a jungle out there. But I need one that I can use daily with my makeup on without ruining it and easy for a quick touch up anytime I want to.

I’m glad to say this, “I found one!”. Belif Awesome Sun Powder SPF 50+ PA+++.


-*-

I met this products months and months ago (I think it’s almost a year now) and still loving it as if it was my first love. The attractive packaging and bright yellow color is something hard to be missed.

-*-


Sold for Rp 240.000 in Indonesia.

-*-



Here’s inside the packaging. A pot of compact powder, mirror and a puff. Hmm, where’s the sun protection? It’s the powder!

-*-

Perfect for those who hates sticky sun protection, glossy sunblocks, white cast caused by lotion of sun screen, and those who can’t find the exact same tone of sun lotion for their skin where it might be in BB Cream or tinted moisturizer.

The powder has a light texture and transparent after setting. So it doesn’t even visible to the naked eye. Since it is not a lotion/gel/cream/water it doesn’t have the side effect of products with those kinds of texture.

We need to use sun protection daily and for me this powder is a wonderful addition to my daily routine since it can be done after the makeup is set and retouch anytime.

How to use:
Carefully use the puff and puff away everywhere on the skin where’s needed, facial and/or body, and make sure all the parts are covered. Use it anytime I feel like it and since it is SPF 50+ it does stay all day long. I do touch up after sweating or getting wet (ex: by rain).

Who do I recommend the product for:
Anyone. Men, women, boys, and girls.

-*-


Thank you Belif Indonesia.


Hi ladies,

last week I was invited by Laneige Indonesia to meet one of their professional makeup artist from Korea.

-*-



The stage is prepared at Seibu and Mal Taman Anggrek. I went to Seibu since Nadia (Pr of Laneige) has booked one session for my makeover there. I’m eager to see the Korean art of makeup ^__^

-*-

The stage look grandeur isn’t it ?! And everyone can see what’s going on there, heeeheee. I hope everyone who came that day and look may learn some tips and valuable lessons from the makeup artist.

-*-

Soon the makeover start and here is my before look, pale and without color -___-

I don’t look well without makeup haha 😀 Without further ado let’s start the makeover, shall we?!

-*-


1. Romeo spray a freshener to my skin
According to him that day my skin already appears clean, so he just start with the freshener and not cleansing.
2. A makeup base to boost the radiance and glow
It help to lifted up the whole look. Used with a brush.
3. BB Cushion is added
This is one of Romeo’s favorite item from Laneige, may be used after the base or anytime for a touch up. A quick sun protection, coverage and base for the skin. An all in one solution. Please do see the video below for more.
4. Compact Powder is used
Just around the face and not on the t zone. According to Romeo it’s a technique so the face appears glowing.
5. Start shaping the brow start from the right one
Korean loves their eyebrow thick, so the face appears smaller.

-*-

This is my before after look half along the way. Clearly seen a shaped eyebrow could make all the differences in one’s look.

-*-

1. Continues with the left eye brow.
2. Eyeshadow
Romeo said it is not needed to use the whole colors in a palette, a single color is enough to add some dimension to the lid.
3. Eyeliner
Fill in the lines on top of the eyes (inside the upper lids) and below as well. No need to draw extra line, just follow the natural shape of one’s eye.
4. Use an eyelash curler and mascara
Start from the middle part all the way to the ends of the lashes without touching the roots so the lashes wont get plucked.
Then carefully apply the mascara one by one (can be seen on the video as well) where he carefully brush each lashes.

The whole process is done slowly by Romeo making sure there’s perfection involved.

-*-

Above image is my right lashes done and the left one untouched, see the differences with below image where both are done. Like using a fake lashes ^_______^

-*-


My eyes look bigger, bolder, and sharper.

-*-

Follow with
1. Blush on
2. Use it on the apple of the cheeks only without going overboard from the temple. Smile when using blush on ya.
3. Lipstick is added

No need using lip liner or other stuff, just lipstick with a brush.
4. After look, ta da!

-*-

This is my makeover inspired by Song Hye Kyo. It’s focused on the flawless skin and natural look. Do I look like a Korean now?

Enjoy the video below for a more detailed info and step by step guide!

-*-

Thank you Laneige Indonesia and Romeo.

Hi all ^___^

Oohhhh, it’s a month of beauty box all over in Indonesia. Beauty enthusiast is racing to be the first who grabbed these boxes, no wonder almost all of them is sold out within the first week of announcing. And I’m lucky enough to be invited by LolaBox on their first beauty box!

-*-




As someone who wants to be the first to try on new cosmetics on the block and realizing it is NOT an easy task to be able to gather all the products out there in the same time with all the events, invitations and writings to do in the same time, these boxes may come in handy. It is impossible to buy everything in the market, especially when all I want is a first bite without digesting the whole pie.

-*-



Here are all the first bites I get from LolaBox April 2013 edition. From makeup to skincare and perfume is here. Gift certificate and makeup lessons from NYX, Taman Sari Spa, etc. The products inside the box consist of:

Sebamed Clear Face Care Gel
Sebamed Clear Face Deep Cleansing Facial Toner
Sebamed Clear Face Cleansing Bar
Orlane Extreme Line Reducing Lip Care
Be 21 EDP By Orlane (7,5 ml)
Orlane Anagenese 25+ First Time Fighting Care
Orlane Anagenese 25+ First Time Fighting Care Eye Contour
Platinum Ristra Longlasting Lipstick Chic Lavender
from Taman Sari Royal Heritage ( Murut Bodyscrub, Cocoa Series Body Scrub, Papaya Enzyme Series Body Scrub, and Green Coconut Series Conditioner.

Some like the lipsticks and Sebamed may be used several times while some are so tiny and comes in a sample sizes, I think it’s really is first bite (as in just one bite).

 
-*-


This is the box, as seen above, it can be used as makeup box, present box, or storage box for other stuffs. Simple yet pretty.

The whole box when opened smells like a spa thanks to Scentsibility.

Now, here are the reviews and some first glance try out in using the products given.

-*-


Orlane Extreme Line Reducing Care can be used immediately and give instant result as well. The lines on my lips are filled out in a jiffy without those sticky feeling like most lip balm do. I love this product and I think I want to have the full size of it. Product like this is considered brilliant and suitable to be in the box, since customer can try it and get instant result.

-*-


While others seems a bit too little for the customer to even see a changes made. But we can try the texture, scent or sensitivity caused on the skin. This is beneficial for those who have a rather delicate condition due to their allergic reaction.

The perfume reminds me a lot of a … tissue ^__^ the smell is really like perfumed tissue back in those days when I’m still in primary.

-*-


These are the close up view of the texture of Orlane skincare for the face and eye. Both are light and easy to use. Due to the size, I can only use them for 3-5 days.

-*-



Products from Taman Sari Royal Heritage. Customer may try and tested which scrub they prefer, I like the Papaya Enzyme best (the one with the orange color) since it smells good. But since they are so tiny the body scrub couldn’t even finish a leg. The conditioner is okay and quite pampering. The size is enough for short – medium length hair.

I wish they all come in bigger sizes ^__^ but I think the variety is relatively good as customers has ideas of this brand and can feel the spa ambiance it brings.

Inside the box, Lola also gives us a piece of paper which shown the prices of the products sold (in regular size).

-*-


The last item I’ve tried is Chic Lavender by Ristra. The lipstick is a bit moisturizing and easy to use, but the color appears different than what I expected a chic lavender would be. It looks like a normal pinkish red lipstick.

Overall,
LolaBox deliver the box to me on the day they say it would be.
All the products given are exactly the same as the one received by my friends
The box when received in in good condition, neat, and tidy.
I love the letter that comes in each box and the scent coming out from it.
I like the variety inside the box and the quantity as well.
I think LolaBox is suitable for beauty enthusiasts who want a nice surprise knocking on their door every month, consistently and dependable.

Thank you LolaBox, hopefully more products and more items can be delivered by you every month.

Hi everyone!!!

I bet by this point almost all beauty bloggers out there knows about WishTrend and their relationship with beauty bloggers. I’m pleased to be one of those beauty blogger and received a pack of products directly from Korea.

They gave me a bunch of samples with one highlight. The Confume Argan Oil for the hair.

-*-



The lovely scented oil is said to be beneficial for the hair, details from www.wishtrend.com:

[Confume] Argan Treatment Oil

+ Provides nutrition to the hair,   enabling it to maintain its original liveliness.


+ Well absorbed into every single hair,    granting moisture, luster
   and elasticity to your hair.


+ Takes careful care of dry area
   to allow a moisturizing quick effect.


+ Protects the hair from heat,   at the same time shortening the hair-drying time.

-*-


My review:

This clear light oil is easy to penetrate into the hair without causing the hair to be limp or weighted down. The first thing I see is my hair become shinier. Since I have oily scalp and knowing for sure the oil is made for the hair not scalp, I avoided the scalp area at least from the middle part of the hair. It is important to use the oil little by little and not to overdo it. I use it on a towel dry hair, right before blow drying. The oil helps the hair to look healthier and on the parts where it is dry and brittle become less dry and less brittle ^_______^

-*-


Overall, it is a very easy-to-be-used product which gives the hair instant result and when used daily will give the hair a long term effect as well. The hair will become stronger, healthier, silkier and glossier day by day.

The tangles will disappears and protect the hair from the heats too. Especially for those who love to style their hair with ‘hot’ tools daily. It helps the hair to become stronger and less angry due to the constant heat applied. Angry? Yup, my hair can become super frizzy and look like a bunch of angry mobs there, like they have been electrocuted.

The oil will tame those fly-aways so the hair become tidier as well.

Thank you WishTrend and stay tune for more reviews for all the products shown above. Korean cosmetic lovers, you don’t want to miss this!

Hi everyone,

It’s been a roller coaster days for me, last week I have a blast with all the events and opportunities, and few days ago I have to went through a surgery to remove an embryo stuck in the right fallopian tube. It was a really painful process of recovery for me. But I believe God has a plan for me and will help me get through it all 🙂

And I want to raise a glass for every women who went through a surgery like me (kinda like a c-section) and has walk through it (literally and in quotes), kudos!

Now, let me share one of the fun parts of an event right before the surgery. The makeover with Makarizo!!!

These are my images of before the makeover haha! I’m in desperate need of makeover.

-*-

The colors has faded, lost their charms and wits, I’m bored ^0^ I need a pro touch. Makarizo hair makeover come in a right time. They called me for a makeover and I immediately said yes! Then they arrange an event for 12 beauty bloggers, which I must say, they carefully prepared everything well, so all of us who came that day, get the right attention, without any single second wasted.

-*-

Without further ado, below is my after look ^___^ My hair looks so much healthier, stylist and no more boring colors.

-*-





And here are the process from before to after.

I came around 10 AM. 10 trainers are ready to give us a look we are looking for. So to make sure it happens before a makeover is done, we have to consult our desire to the team. What kind of hair style do we want or look for? What colors looks best on us? What happen to the colors on a hair like mine, where it was bleached, perms, etc? Will it last? Etc?

-*-

Due to the condition of my hair which is weaken to the core. perming is highly avoidable. Colors such as blue, orange and green are avoided as well, by me hehehe! I don’t think I look good in any of those colors. Fret not! The staff and trainers from Makarizo also carries the same value as me and focus on my personalities and style that works for me (and each of us who came that day). The trainer who assist me also help me understand my hair condition and why colors wont last that long on my hair, so she gave me tips on which colors may last longer, we came to a conclusion that an ombre of deep purple and daring red will be the right combination for me.

-*-


Pretty isn’t it?! Heehee, and the best thing is, the process only took one cycle. No need bleaching, color the red first, followed with purple all over the hair and rinse well.

-*-




Ms. Nurma carefully making sure I get what I want, 2/3 of deep purple from root to almost the end and 1/3 of daring red at the ends. Look at how dry and brittle my hair was, you’ll see at the after photos, my hair doesn’t look dry anymore. Say hello to radiant full colored hair.

-*-


It was a very fast and rewarding experience for me. Oh and I don’t feel any sting, pain, or other discomfort throughout the whole process.

-*-


This is my image after the wash. But during the rinsing process, Ms. Nurma added some color protector (kinda like a mask) so the colors stays ON longer and better. The hair also become glossier and less tangled after the treatment given by her.

-*-



Then she dried the hair using a blow drier, I see the silkiness, moist and a radiant glow from the hair. I love it!

-*-



I took a lot of images after the makeover is done haha! I’m so happy with the result. The whole process is around 3 hours: 30 minutes for consultation, 1 hour for applying the colors, 20 minutes of leaving the colors to penetrate into the hair, 15 minutes of rinsing and treatment, the rest will be for drying, styling and taking pictures for Makarizo ^__^ quite fast right?!

-*-



But the team of Makarizo doesn’t want me to go home empty handed. They gave me a bunch of products for the newly colored hair. A series from MK3. Shampoo, Gel Conditioner and a Cream.

-*-


A beautiful light white cream in a pot (oh, how I wish it’s in a tube), that smells good and as a leave-in protection for the hair to stay silky, less tangled and protects the colors too.

The cream is used after the shampooing is done, the conditioner are given and rinsed out. So on a towel dried hair apply a small amount of cream (around walnut size for medium-long hair) especially from the middle part all the way to the ends. Avoiding the roots.

-*-


These are the texture of the shampoo and conditioner. Ms. Nurma already warned me about the 3 days rule of not washing the hair so the colors may stay longer on the hair and really sets in. But on day 2 I can’t help myself and rinse it anyway due to the oiliness. But The second wash was done 4 days later (since I went into a surgery and unable to take a shower). She also reminds me about the first few washes where there colors will stain the water and anything it touches when wet, such as towels.

So far I’ve done 3 washes and the colors are keep coming out whenever I wash the hair. But my hair is still almost the same as when they are colored last week. So, everything that Ms. Nurma said turn out to be true and I thank her for that ^__^ so there’s no ‘surprises’ afterwards. She prepares me for process and what happen next.

Okay, back to the review . . .
The shampoo is light and easy to lather on. Giving the hair and scalp a cleanliness without striping them dry. The gel conditioner is a unique light conditioner that helps the hair to stay soft and smooth. They smells quite strong and stays for hours after the wash. My husband compliment on the scent as well when he’s around me, so it was really a noticeable scent.

-*-

Thank you so much Makarizo for my hair makeover and the products that help support the colors to stay vibrant and healthy. You have a wonderful team that help me with the transformation and I can feel all of you are passionate in what you do and put a lot of efforts making sure all the beauty bloggers get the style/colors/hair design that matches them. It was an honor for me to experience the makeover and hope to see you guys again soon!

I would like to discuss start from the light texture, the emulsion is used after toner and smells really good. Like blends of fresh flowers. Easy to be used and absorbed by the skin. Due to it’s nature (travel size packaging :D) I’m only reviewing for a week of usage. The serum may be used twice a day (day and night time). It was able to gives my skin a light hydration and light smoothing effect.

The deep lines after a week usage are still there but the finer one looks more relaxed. No allergic reaction, no stickiness, the skin remain calms and look radiant. Reading from the product details it seems like they have so many benefits in one item but surprisingly feels so light and friendly on my skin.

The white emulsion for me like an all in one solution for complexion, hydration and smoothness. What can I say? Another high quality product from Shu Uemura not to be missed.



Hi everybody,

this is (for me) a long awaited post since March last year XD haha seriously. The media event is really last year: CLICK ME. On that post there’s also product details and many more information regarding the product and series comes with it.

Months ago Estee Lauder finally handed me one and here is the review.

-*-


Please do read the details from that previous post regarding the info or just click www.esteelauder.com for reading materials regarding the product. It is still the same Resilience we knew, just improved, better and new-er.

-*-


It comes in variation, mine is the one with SPF 15. I’ve used the ‘older’ version before and very much loving it, now, I love them still. The aroma, the texture, the sensation when using it, the comfort and the result.

-*-


The pinkish cream may look thick but when touched it melts on the skin and easily dissolve, glide and made my skin feel the love of being pampered. The SPF is quite low, so for me, I need to add more since 15×15 is 225 means 3 hours and 45 minutes. My skin need 6 hours of sun protection, adding another sun protection like sunscreen is needed.

-*-


Overall it’s a wonderful day cream that helps the skin get firm again without any stickiness, oily, nor any kind of discomfort. The skin gently become firming and the sculpting can be made with the help of massaging. There are some technique and tools helping a sculpting cream to work better. When we reach a certain age, the skin become less firm and start to loose their tightness.

This cream able to help slowing down the sagging skin. Preferably use the whole product in the series, from the serum ANR or Perfectionist, and the one for the eye.

-*-


If you’re looking for a moisturizer with a firming and sculpting effect without the greasiness and just plain superb, try Estee Lauder Resilience Lift Firming/Sculpting Face and Neck Cream (which means can be used for the neck too, yeay!!) SPF 15 ^__^

Tips from me, add a higher SPF sunscreen afterward for protecting the skin from UV damage. For those with dry skin may use serum for adding hydration before the moisturizer. So far this product can be used with other luxury products from other brand and other range. Customize them with your own skin type.

The whole pot (50 ml) when used daily may last for +/-2 months.
