Hi ladies,

This is one of the item I get from Lola Box May 2013 edition, a BB Cream from Skin79. For a minute there I thought there’s a typo, but it does said beblesh . . . anyone know what it mean?

-*-

Details from www.skin79.com:

It is 3 effects functional beblesh balm. By Adenosine and Arbutin ingredients which are effective in whitening, wrinkles improvement cultivate more bright and elastic skin.Intercept ultraviolet rays UV A and B at the same time and protect your skin exposed from the sun more thoroughly.OSMOPUR ingredient of new concept, which are Mined Sunflower, Rice Bran, Ivy Extracts protect skin from various harmful conditions.Phyto Complex ingredient which is good for skin moisturizing and soothing makes your skin always moist and healthy.This product has excellent cover function by composition of makd-up base and foundation. It can correct your irregularly different skin tones naturally powder is excellent for your skin adhesion and sebum control.This is W / S shape which is good for skin affinity and it make your skin light, soft and dry all day without that skin gooey.

-*-

The product covers redness, skin discoloration, pores, sebum and fine lines too. There’s a mattefying effect which oily skin owner will enjoy but still in a natural way. I thought the tone would be too dark but somehow the cream blends into my skin tone.

The cream’s texture is not as smooth as other BB I’ve tried, and the matte effect might absorbing the moisture out of the skin until dry, so after each usage during cleansing, do clean properly with a makeup remover so the product stop ‘sucking’ the skin dry.

BB Cream are meant to be used and treat like a makeup, so never skip skincare, use a moisturizer before the BB Cream. The SPF 25 PA++ is suffice for daily usage but if perhaps ones want to go to the beach or staying in the sun longer hours, please do use a higher sun protection after moisturizer and before BB Cream.

No need to use too much, spread some dots on 5 different areas on the face and blends well with fingers, if more is needed add little by little. I use around 1 corn sized cream for my face all over.

-*-



Conclusion,

the BB Cream offer somewhat the same as other BB Cream I know, slightly matte-er, a tad rougher in term of texture, gives natural finish and I think the main focus is ….. the matte effect. A bit contradictory with the trend right now, radiant and luminous glow finish. I guess it’s just a matter of preference ^^


I didn’t see the whitening effect and the coverage is more to the medium. Ones can add concealer or foundation for a more flawless look.


Hello everyone,

this month Lola Box is a perky bright orange-yellow sunshine, please do see the video here:

-*-

There are a lot of items isn’t it?! And I’ll be waiting for next week where Lola will replace the expired item with the new ones.

I’ve tried some of the product now and like Skin79 it will be on a different blog post ^^
But for the rest of the item, I’ll share my personal thoughts here:

Clarins UV+HP11 SPF40 UVA UVB PA+++ Oil Free and Anti Pollution Day Screen Multi Protection.
A milky salmon lotion which distributed easily on the skin for a velvety smooth feeling, a bit glossy but still comfortable to be used daily.

Clarins White Plus Total Luminescent Serum.
A clear cool almost 100% transparent gel that smells so good and freshen up the skin almost instantly. Absorb so fast and leave the skin plump and lovely. I would love to use it everyday just for the texture alone.

Air Lift Toothpaste
A simple toothpaste which have a properties almost like a minty chewing gum, keep giving me a fresh minty feeling up to an hour after brushing the teeth with it. The thick white paste is providing fresh breath, but I think I need more than just a fresh breath, like the one for sensitive teeth.

Masami Shouko Cleansing Sponge and Puff.
Both work well like usual, but I like the puff better since it feels softer on the skin. I know the cleansing sponge help trigger skin simulation but sometime when rub too much during cleansing will irritate my sensitive cheeks.

The Face Shop.
The Clean Face series, Toner and Lotion.
A fragrant collection that tone and moisturize the skin in a light way. I can’t say anything more from the 5 ml products.

-*-

That’s it for now, see you on my next post regarding Skin79 and Make Over products that will be sent to my home by Lola Box ^^

Thank you so much!! Keep giving me surprises yaaaa.


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 ladies,

Bobby Wu is in town, he is an International Make Up Artist from Taiwan, Estee Lauder Indonesia invited him to share his skill to the VIP customers and beauty bloggers.

-*-

The one I attend and hosted is at Mal Taman Anggrek on Sunday afternoon.

I came around 11 AM and while waiting for the beauty bloggers to come, I took pictures on the area.

-*-

There’s customers everywhere and wonderful offers not to be missed, especially when you’re a die hard Estee Lauder fans.

While waiting Erfan (PR of Estee Lauder) introduce me to Bobby Wu and get a quick touch up before the event started

-*-


He speaks mandarin and little English, the opposite of me ^__^ So it’s a good thing there’s a translator there. He made a smokey eyes for me.

-*-

His touch to the eyes is quite gentle, I’m very sensitive in terms of the ‘eye zone’ but he get me tearless.

-*-


It was done around 10 minutes. This is my look after the touch up.

-*-

Estee Lauder and Bobby Wu has done tours to several cities other than Jakarta and this is his last pit stop before going back, so the beauty bloggers attended use this opportunity to learn from him.

-*-

VIP customers also able to get invited and have a makeover by Bobby Wu upon appointment.

-*-

 Soon the event began with MC and Erfan greet us all. Bobby Wu will demonstrate his skill with the help of a model.

-*-

This is the model with her before look.

-*-

During the step by step guide he testify on almost every products from Estee Lauder and we witness some of the cool stuff happening, like how ANR (Advanced Night Repair) serum can be used to help moisten the skin and added into the base. Double Wear foundation to be super waterproof and wont melt. How to apply the powder with a very small movement, etc.

-*-

A very informative and fun event. Personally I’ve seen some of his method which perhaps a standard in Estee Lauder and he added some of his tricks as well.

-*-


Around 30 minutes the makeup is done, focusing in flawless skin without the dramatic effect.

-*-

Thank you Bobby Wu for the tips and guidance throughout the demo.

-*-

These are all the products used by Bobby Wu. From the skincare set, base, powder, colors and oh yes, he did share a different way of using the blush on than local mua, the one I know for years yet most local mua refused to admit, the one that enhance the apple cheeks.

-*-


And I found one particular item which catches my eyes, the BB Cream at Cyber White collection.

-*-



Use after skincare.

The irresistible packaging is just a beginning of a new found love of what’s inside the tube.

-*-


Packed with SPF35/PA +++ The Extra Intense B.B Cream comes in one shade fits all. I’ve tried on some blogger which have different skin tone as I am and all three of us can use the exact same item.

-*-

The cream blends in the skin and give a radiance complexion to the skin without any makeup effect. It’s more like a healthy glow than powdery nor even cakey. Very light to the touch and comfortable to be use. Someday I’ll make a full review on this ^__^

Thank you Estee Lauder Indonesia, and everyone who came. All of us brought back one Pure Color lippie and Duo Eyeshadow from Estee Lauder. Review? Coming soon!


Hi everyone,

especially those who made it to the class, thank you so much ^0^

-*-


The second beauty class is held in Seibu, Grand Indonesia and before the clock strike 1 PM the guests already coming.

-*-


 Once again, it will be about that famous BB Cream which give the skin instant result with lasting correction effect.

Soon, we started the event with skin consultation so all the ‘students’ may learn about their skin before the class began.

-*-




This is Mr. Ari, you may see the details of the presentation HERE. Everyone’s here got to try this wonderful BB Cream

-*-



I got to share my experience in using the BB and CC Cream (noooo, not that CC Cream, it’s the moisturizer from Kiehl’s, Clearly Corrective Cream) and let all the audience try to smell, feel and enjoy the texture as well. It was really light and hydrating at the same time. I share my tips, do’s and dont’s on using skincare and hopefully all of it are useful for everyone.

I love when their asking question, get free consultation from Kiehl’s team and me too ^__^

-*-



Then, it’s Carryna’s turn, heehee she looks so cute! She shares her experience using the emulsion, a lighter version of CC Cream suitable for oily skin type. Mr. Ari helps us with technical details while me and Carryn shares on our experiences in using the products. We both give good reviews based on our skin type and usage. Plus we both share how to fully optimized the products.

-*-


A mini makeover is done by team Kiehl’s right after sharing session. Everyone rush in to get their face cleansed and personal experience using all Kiehl’s products suitable for their skin. Which means everyone get a unique products carefully selected for their unique skin as well.

Here are some input that I shared during the event:
1. Always consult with the staff before deciding to buy any beauty products. They are supposed to help you in finding the right item and brave enough to say when maybe the one you’re looking for is not in their brand.
2. Good companies do give samples and a bunch of them.
3. Always pay attention in the direction of usage, ‘t&c’ of every product and be sure to do the skincare with a pre-cleanse / washed hands.

-*-



We all have fun and found items that suitable with their skin. Me? I found this cute bag with mascot for Kiehl’s box. You can have one for FREE at a special limited deal offer. Somehow it reminds me of a Japanese Sushi \^0^/

-*-


Again, thank you everyone who came to the Beauty Class and thank you Kiehl’s for the full support.

See you all soon!!!


Hello ^__^

With a lot of buzz about BB Cream lately and seems like the crave for BB Cream last for a long time too, The Body Shop has come up with their own version of BB Cream.

-*-


Today these goodies come knockin’ on my door and I’m happily accept them. I’ll create a look using all of them but now this post will be just about the BB Cream called All-in-one BB Cream.
-*-

Details from www.thebodyshop.com.sg:

A masterpiece of make-up and skincare, our All-In-One BB Cream possesses a lightweight formula that provides 24hr hydration and colour-adapts for a perfect match and a smooth, undetectable finish. It’s make-up and skincare in one!
Apply over moisturised skin and see the colour transform and adapt perfectly to your skin tone. For increased coverage, apply All-In-One Face Base.

-*-


Still in their strength as a skincare brand well-known all around the world, the BB Cream focused on providing the skin a 24 hour moisture, doesn’t clogged the pores, light, soften the skin and even out the tone.

Mine is 02 Natural, but how come it’s white?

-*-

Apparently all of their shades start as a white light cream where there’s dots, tiny brown/dark dots. It will burst and provide tone to the skin. I think mine should be 01.

-*-

Let’s just try the product, shall we?!

-*-

As clearly seen the BB Cream is still white when touching the skin, I try this circular moment and feels like the skin is getting a scrub, so the representative of The Body Shop Indonesia told me not to use ‘massaging’ movement but to dab gently.

-*-

And after gently dabbing, carefully distribute the cream (still with dabbing movement). I think a sponge or brush would do the trick as well. But fingers is always my first choice. The smell is wonderful, like something from the forest, wild flowers aroma ^__^

-*-


After well spread, this is my ‘after’ look. The BB Cream covers the skin light-medium coverage. Hide large pores, uneven skin tone and gives the skin a moisturizing effect with a noticeable moist look as well. Powder is needed afterwards so the skin will have a velvety finish. Unlike most BB Cream out there, the All-in-one BB Cream from The Body Shop doesn’t have any sun protection. So when used day time please use a sunscreen first before the BB Cream, and made this  product suitable to be used at night as well.

Cleansing wise? Use a makeup remover.

Stay tune for my next post creating a look with the whole Best Sellers makeup series from The Body Shop, and psssst!!! A little bird told me the 01 shade (Rosy) is the most sought after in Indonesia, so grab one fast before too late.



Hi everyone,

first of all thank you so much for coming to the Beauty Class last Saturday in Plaza Senayan, the store was crowded thanks to all of you. It was a full packed, wall to wall guests who came that day, registered and non registered as well.

We will conduct another Beauty Class at Grand Indonesia on the 30th.

Details are given below:
-*-


And yes, you read it correctly as buy one get one free, since we know some of the guests did bring a friend along wink wink ^__–.

The event will be a series of wonderful knowledge in Kiehl’s products particularly the one that made your skin look flawless and less dark sposts, virtually. So everyone who come get a very clear idea on how it works.

-*-

The BB Cream (Read: HERE) work as a protector from outside, imagine an umbrella for the skin, while from within, there’s a product that I’m currently using called Clearly Corrective Deep Moisture Clarifying Cream, or let me called it as the Clarifying Cream, works from beneath, as a hydrating agent and helps correcting the skin day and night.

-*-
 

In the event all participant learn about the ingredients inside the BB Cream and how it works, and then I was told on how the Clarifying Cream work well with the BB Cream. First of all is the same ingredients, Vitamin C.

-*-


On the direction also mentioned that Clarifying Cream to be used with UV Protection such as the BB Cream that contain a high SPF level of 50 PA +++. Which means it will protect the skin for 8 hours long.

-*-

There are many types of UV rays but the one that effecting the skin in harmful way is the UVA and UVB. It can cause the skin to age and create dark spots.

-*-

We did learn a lot from Kiehl’s that day, so don’t forget to sign up and see you all there soon!

-*-


Here are the products I used along side with Clarifying Cream:

-*-


Powerful Strength Line Reducing Concentrate, Line Reducing Eye Brightening Concentrate, and many more.




Not to forget the BB Cream.

-*-


I also have some samples (yes, Kiehl’s are well-known for their abundant generosity of samples) which I use as well.

-*-


So the Clarifying Cream can work it’s best ^__^

Details from www.kiehls.com :

Skin tone correcting moisturizing cream
• Highly effective, skin clarifying moisturizing cream intensively corrects uneven skin tone
• Provides continuous 24-hour hydration while visibly diminishing dark spots and discoloration
• Activated C helps diminish the appearance of skin irregularities and prevents the formation of new ones
• Instantly hydrates skin and provides long-term radiance
• Use after Clearly Corrective™ Dark Spot Solution and before sun protection
• Paraben-free, fragrance-free, colorant-free,  dermatologist-tested


My say:

The white cream is lovely, from the fresh flowery scent (from natural ingredients) to the light texture. Unlike most whitening/brightening product that exfoliate the skin, Clarifying Cream hydrating the skin so irritation wont occurred.  Irritation does make dark spots worsen or created in the first place.

So how does the Clarifying Cream works its way in creating an even skin tone? The Activated C. “To help deter the formation of new pigmentation irregularities on skin surface, the formula helps visibly diminish dark spots and discolorations for overall skin uniformity and clarity“.

And without being so heavy the cream gently penetrate into the skin without greasy effect nor oily feeling even thou it gives the skin 24 hour hydration effect. So far this is my favorite clarifying/brightening cream I have for being so light, gentle, effective and moisturizing at the same time.

Price sold in Indonesia is Rp.575.000.

And I never forget to top it off with the BB Cream right after the Clarifying Cream every day for a spotless looking skin.


Dear all,

today let me share with you some of leading products out there which provide sun protection to the skin and in the same time beautifying.

Most BB Cream on the market is plain makeup, which doesn’t have skincare properties beneficial for the skin. Kiehl’s Dermatologist Solutions Actively Correcting & Beautifying BB cream have benefits just like skincare does.

-*-


Just like their Ultra Light Daily UV Defense the BB Cream is packed with SPF 50 PA +++ but now, even better.

These details are from http://www.kiehlstimes.com/

-*-

Instant perfection with lasting correction, I love their tag line. And what’s in it that ade the BB Cream becomes a lasting correction?

Yes, the vit C inside the product that gives the lasting correction effect of improving discolorations and imperfection, minimizes the appearances of pores and the sun screen gives SPF 50/PA +++ UV Protection which inhibit the future discoloration and uneven skin tone.

-*-

These are both of the items, the white cream is Ultra Light Daily UV Defense and the tinted one is BB Cream. Both looks glossy and the feeling is soft to the touch.

-*-


I use it on a cleansed skin with toner, serum and moisturizer too. I use both just to show the colors, but both works well together or just alone. I prefer the BB Cream since it was tinted and provide vitamin C for caring the skin even better.

-*-


This is the instant effect of the BB cream, an even skin tone and glowing radiant skin. It hides some imperfection in a natural way without looking like makeup. After the BB Cream makeup may be added like foundation, concealers, powders, etc.

I love how I can use the BB Cream daily as it will help the skin to get better complexion, less lines, and finer pores as well.

-*-

This is my look after full makeup. The BB Cream does help so I don’t have to use much makeup than before. A simple BB Cream with loose powder also will do for that natural daily look.

Still curious about Kiehl’s BB Cream?

Join me in a beauty class, register HERE.

Hello lovely ladies,

after browsing some magazines from Singapore, I was drooling on this particular item. Laneige Snow BB Soothing Cushion SPF 50+ PA+++ who wouldn’t?! Miss Song as the brand ambassador looks flawlessly beautiful, her skin is dewy and looks really young.

And I’m glad to know Laneige is now back in Indonesia. Their focus is still about water/hydration and how important it is for our skin. Complete range on skincare and series of makeup with skincare on their mind. Promising a natural dewy complexion with spotless surface.

-*-



Details from www.laneige.com:
New-concept Cushion BB for Whitening + Sunscreen + Sweat-proof + Soothing + Makeup Effects-
  • Skin Types : ALL SKIN
  • Size : 15G *2
day & night

-*-


Inside the box is the instruction, the product and what’s that? Yes, a refill. So, instead of one product, you get two. Savvy!


-*-

They look pretty aren’t they? White and blue together, big round mirror and LANEIGE engraved on the sponge.

-*-



There’s something different inside, nope, not yet the BB, it’s the sponge. Flip the white sponge and reveal a navy blue sponge that’s rubbery, washable and flexible.

I wish the sponge is bigger and the side edges are finer so there’s no sharp leftovers which felt uncomfortable when touched by skin. So make sure only the blue part are used.

-*-


This is it, the cushion, it is actually a sponge soaked in a BB Cream. The BB Cream is light in texture compared with other BB Cream on the tube. I guess Laneige move forward in creating a light touch to their BB Cream with same adequate strength in creating an impeccable makeup base.

-*-

Dab the sponge to the cushion, navy blue part.

-*-



And get an enough amount. This fragrant BB is claimed to be sweat-proof too.

-*-



I’m ready to use it. On a cleaned, toned, pre-serum, serum and moisturized skin of course.

-*-

I’m using No.21 the Natural Beige on my chin first before moving up. It’s not a special technique, just trying my way up ^__^

Here’s a clip of me with the product:

The Snow BB Soothing Cushion SPF 50+ PA+++ able to create a smooth looking skin with a breathable feeling, air and so light to the touch.
It still need some powder action afterward, adding concealer or foundation for a full make up look with zero flaw. But for me, this BB and loose powder is enough as a base.

-*-

This is me with Snow BB, without the powder.

-*-




Snow BB, loose powder, fake lashes, brow set and eye shadows plus blush on.

-*-



Final result? A dewy flawless complexion but still looks natural and fresh. I think Laneige has done it again. Giving me a lovely base which stays with me all day long. Looking natural never been this good.

I love the high sun protection power and a bit tips, sponge is provided but I can still use my foundation brush or fingers for the application.

Cleansing wise? Use a makeup remover or all in one cleansing oil, don’t forget to double cleanse when needed, especially when SPF is involved.
