Hello everyone!!

I hope you’re doin’ fine today ^^

As this month (May 2013) in Indonesian Beauty Blogger is about Dull to Doll, Estee Lauder present the staffs with a Primer to start it all. Where every women can be beautiful, a correct start is essential. From their series of skincare to makeup collection, Estee Lauder has been providing us with beauty products for decades.

-*-

I’ve done the Illuminating version some time ago (Click HERE) and now, the Matte has come ^^

Details from http://www.esteelauder.com:

Skin-calming Green Tea and Vitamin E rebalance and perfect. Oil-free.

Ideal for Normal/Combination and Oily Skin.

  • Then, smooth evenly over face and blend.
  • Apply makeup.

FORMULA FACTS
  • Oil-free
  • Dermatologist-tested
  • Ophthalmologist-tested
  • Fragrance-free
-*-

Above is the swatch done at my hand, and on the skin it was clearly seen the difference between using Illuminating and Matte. From the ingredients, texture, color, and function, the two primer definitely gives the skin a different effect. But both feel comfortable on the skin.

I know a swatch won’t be enough for you ^^ below is me using the products at my face.

-*-

Here’s illuminating.

Illuminating, when I want to boost radiance and ‘charming’ effect, hence that’s why there’s a sticker of princes(s) charming ^^ perfect for usage in an aircon room all day long or during traveling to dry climate. Where the skin need more moist effect. So the skin looks like there’s a luminous glow from within. A perfect light base before foundation, best to be used with the series that help the skin to look pearly glow, healthy glow, or natural glow, it’s your choice.

Pearly glow: pair it up with brightening products and makeup. Use makeup that contains glistening/sparkling powders.

Healthy glow: Use a CC Cream after the primer, a light moisturizing loose powder and a touch of colorful makeup for the spring.

Natural glow: Use a BB Cream after the primer, add compact powder and loose powder, earth colored makeup is suitable afterwards.

Or any kind of glow you want, imagination is the key ^^

-*-


Here’s matte.

Matte, when I want to stay active (hence the dancing me sticker ^^) without that oily/greasy look. The primer help my skin to stay matte longer and better. Hmm, it appears like my skin looks whiter/fairer too since I think the primer help reducing the redness from the calming properties. The powder stays on longer and the skin does feels fresher. Suitable to be used with other mattefying product but careful not to over-dry the skin.

Matte finish is sought after for those with oily skin type, but a primer alone wont be enough. Always drink plenty of water throughout the day so the skin stays hydrated hence no need to overcompensate with oils from within. A hydrating moisturizer and skincare with water-based ingredients also encourage to be used before the primer.

A matte look can be attained by adding foundation/BB Cream, compact and loose powder. Use an oil blotter no more than 1-2 times a day or only when necessary.

Don’t forget to clean the makeup thoroughly 2x day and always go to bed with a clean moisturized skin. An overused makeup will lead the skin dehydrated, clogged and dull.

Thank you Estee Lauder Indonesia.

Hello ladies,

thank you so much, since 2009 I’ve been blogging about beauty products and finally after saving some time I’m able to start videos session of Skincare 101.

There will be a bunch of videos with different topic every time, I’m planning to discuss per products range, type, needs and well anything I can separate them into.




You may contribute by commenting in which beauty products you want me to share in the next video and I’ll do my best to do so ^__^

Again, thank you so much, it won’t be happening without you, my lovely readers!!



Hello everybody,

after decades of successful iconic item called the Advanced Night Repair, a serum for the face, finally Estee Lauder launch one for the eyes area last month (Read it: HERE).

-*-



Here is the product, the box and the details attached to it. A 15 ml pump bottle with nothing but goodness for the eyes area. The minute I saw the product, somehow I found it believable. Maybe due to it’s precedent product known as ANR, or maybe because of all those research behind it.

-*-



Use it before an eye cream, so yes, it’s an eye serum. Twice daily and enjoy the benefit. The product has been with me for a month now and here’s my review.

-*-



I’m not using it alone, but with her faithful companion to guide her through. The Advanced Night Repair serum for the face. I’ll compare their texture and see them standing side by side to fight the aging out of my skin. Since now there are two ANR, one for the face and one for the eyes, let’s call it ANR face, ANR eyes, face and eyes, oh whatever, you got the drill 😀

-*-



Here they are, in terms of texture, color and physical appearance, immediately there are some differences. From the clear slightly brown/orange easy to digest serum to the light creamy white ANR eyes. However, both have that almost the same memorable scent, the one that only available in the ANR world. A subtle herb earthy slightly aromatic floral scent.

-*-



And both feels so easy on the skin, one for the facial skin feels so good on the skin and the one for the eyes as well. It may looks creamy but it is away from heavy and thick. Instantly melts and cover the eyes area with the liquid, penetrates and absorbed by the skin. The feeling afterwards is smooth, soft and relaxed.

-*-


From the press release and details given, I know that ANR eyes are made with full research and knowledge of the eyes original condition. Where it needs a pampering action from all those blinking, laughing, and all our facial eyes expression. And I know for sure I can’t escape using anti aging products, these last few days I have difficulties in sleeping on the right time.

Perhaps due to the surgery and the stitches or maybe it’s just something that all of us has experience. Stress from work or daily life. I meant, we all want a nice, slow paced life with zero pressure. But in reality almost all of us can’t have that luxury, the result? We are exhausted and the skin gets to it’s toll as well.
 

Lines, wrinkles, dehydrated skin is amongst the things we’ve seen the minute we step into the 30. Or for some 25. ANR with a remarkable formula which not just fix the skin on top but all through the DNA.

There’s when and why we need help, and ANR (face and eyes) are 2 of my recommended items on my list. List? Yes, there are a lot of good products out there, anyone just need to find the perfect item exactly matches their skin. It’s just happens that these 2 matches mine and a whole lotta people out there ^_________^

-*-


Use the eye serum from ANR to help the aging off from your eyes from the early age, I’m talking about 18-20’s. Since the signs of aging hits the eyes first. Always use the ring finger from the outer to inner side of the eyes. Try to avoid rubbing the eyes, it’s not just causing wrinkles (since the eyes area are 40% thinner than the face) it’s also might cause infection to the eyes. Avoid using other products for the eyes which has thick texture and fragrances since it can migrate to the eyes. The ANR eyes may be used alone without an eye cream on top of it.

ANR eyes also help reduce puffiness and dark circles around the eyes.

And if needed or wanted, use it with ANR for the face.

-*-


By using them both for a complete Advanced Night Repair experience continually and routinely (minimum of 2 weeks daily application and see the result on your skin) I’m looking younger overall and gradually.

PS: Don’t forget to use the rest of the skincare products (cleanser, toner, moisturizer and sun protection) and always use a clean hand when applying.

So far I can use these products with other brand and range, mix and match accordingly to one’s skin type and needs.

Thank you Estee Lauder Indonesia.


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.


Hello ladies,

I’m sure this brand need no further introduction and their lipstick as well. Known for a their very soft texture, the lipstick have to be handled with care, closed properly, and gently used. When I use it on chapped lips, lines appeared on the lipstick where the chapped touched, like they are super sensitive on objects, even my chapped lips looks like razor scratching the lipstick’s surface.

The lipstick become so soft due to the high moisturizing effect.

The color stays on my lips for hours, but it is not waterproof and they will be gone after eating, but somehow I’m happy to reapply as the lips does crave for more smoothness from it. Creamy yet not overwhelming, somehow there’s a seductive feeling when using this lipstick, its a sensation that the lipstick create on the lips.

A lovely and iconic product from Estee Lauder which I think many will look after, from the variety of the shades, beautiful packaging and benefits for the lips.

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,

as always IBB has come with another makeup challenge not to be missed ^__^ This month’s theme is Bling It On, inspired by diamante and products that’s on the stake is from NYX. You got to won a set of hampers worth Rp.500.000. There will be two winner as always so the total prize is Rp.1000.000.

Don’t forget the staffs of IBB and past winners are not allowed to participate.

-*-



So, as a staff myself, I’m just going to share my version of Bling It On.

Above is my before look, so plain ^__^

A pre-cleanse skin with toner, serum and moisturizer.

-*-


Step 1:

Using an All In One BB Cream from The Body Shop in 02. A little bit too dark for my skin tone but I’ll compensate it with a fair Cyber White EX compact from Estee Lauder which is a bit too light on me.

-*-


The BB Cream starts as white cream and by dabbing it all over the skin, they’ll turn into skin tones accordingly.

-*-


After the BB Cream is well spread.

-*-

Step 2. To finish off the base I’m using compact by Estee Lauder by using the sponge and carefully blend everything well since sometime it can be cakey. But by adding Revlon loose powder somehow they are able to create a harmony.

-*-

Step 3.

Using a highlighter, bronzer and shading all in one with that famous item from The Body Shop. Which I think wonderful and able to give me an enhance cheek bone. Shaping the face to be more contoured than before.

-*-

Step 4:

Adding some blush action for that healthy perky rosy glow also using a product from The Body Shop.

Step 5.

Eye shadow and eye brow pencil from ZA

-*-

Step 5.

NYX, The Curve, an eyeliner with unique shape and design which made using eyeliner easier. The curvy tool made the hand stay steadier while during application deliver rigid line. So don’t try to do a straight line all the way. Make small lines and connect them that smooth lines above the eyes.

-*-

Below is the result. Since the look focusing near the eyes area, I’m making a slightly longer lines with a wink upward.

-*-

Using an eyelash curler from Shu Uemura only to help the lashes to curls.

 -*-

Before the final step which is decorating, colored eye lenses, and fake lashes, I use the lip gloss from The Body Shop, it smells berry-licious but found to be quite sticky.

-*-

I hope it add some tiny bling on the look thou’

-*-



By using eyelash glue, I add some bling on forehead. And some heart shaped gold dusts (product by IZU) on the rear sides.

-*-




One on the right side and one on the left.

-*-

The images are taken with 2 different camera, iPhone and Fujifilm Fine Pix. iPhone able to capture normal light with more focused on details on low resolution, while Fine Pix absorbed light more with higher resolution yet unable to focus on closed range.

-*-

I hope you get the idea ^_^ 


-*-

But I feel I need more bling so I added one more but still in an ambiance of simplicity and hoping to see the contestant to take it further and really bling it on!

-*-

Check out my full transformation below of before, and after all are done.
  
-*-

Make yours soon and see you on Indonesian Beauty Blogger Facebook Group!

Dear ladies,

last week, I was invited by Estee Lauder for their new item available for Indonesia market. The Advanced Night Repair Eye Serum Infusion. I’ve been a fans of the Advanced Night Repair Serum for more than 5 years now and to complete the set, it comes with the new treatment for the eyes.

-*-

The event held at Seibu and as always they do pay attention to details making sure the media gets a full idea on the product.

-*-


Here are some details given on why we need to pay special attention to the eyes area:
·         The eye area is one of the first areas to show visible signs of aging
·         Due to the exceedingly thin and delicate nature of eye area skin, it tends to be more vulnerable to manual irritations such a rubbing, squinting, blinking and expressions
·         It’s important to use a product developed for the eye area because face moisturizers can be too heavy for the eye area or may contain emollients and fragrance that can easily migrate into the eye and cause irritation
·         There are fewer oil glands in the eye area
·         Skin around the eye area is 40% thinner than facial skin
·         The eye area skin is also five times more porous than facial skin[1]
·         On average a person blinks 12 times per minute – about 10,000 blinks in an average day
·         A person smiles over 50 times per day – creating “smile” lines or crow’s feet around the eye area
·         Dark circles and puffiness around the eyes can be influenced by many factors, including genetics, allergies, the environment and lifestyle, such as lack of sleep or smoking
·         It’s important to start taking care of the eye area at a young age because by treating the eye area first you can help postpone the look of aging
·         When the temperature drops, eye area skin can get even more fragile, so it is even more important to keep the area hydrated and the moisture barrier strong
·         Exposure to pollution can lead to premature signs of aging around the eye area, like fine lines, wrinkles, dryness and uneven skintone
·         t’s best to apply eye products from the outer corner and work your way towards the inner corner because that’s where the first lines start to appear and need the most repair
·         The ring finger naturally tends to apply less pressure than other fingers, which makes it the ideal finger to apply eye creme with eye serum

ESTéE LAUDER
INTRODUCES
Super potent, fast-penetrating eye serum with advanced repair technology that helps significantly inhibit ozone damage  
Dramatically reduces the look of every key visible sign of aging
Embracing the brand’s core philosophy that “Every Woman Can Be Beautiful,” Estée Lauder understands that beautiful skin is in every woman’s DNA. As pioneers in the field of genetic skincare research with the 2009 launch of Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex, Estée Lauder continues as a cosmetic leader in “skincare repair.” Building on a heritage of expertise in the repair category, now Estée Lauder Research unveils new research leveraging our understanding of the profoundly damaging effects of pollution, specifically ozone (O3) on skin’s DNA and aging. Inspired by these findings, Estée Lauder introduces Advanced Night Repair Eye Serum Infusion,a super-potent, fast-penetrating repair serum with all the repair benefits of Advanced Night Repair, made specifically for the delicate eye area in a new lightweight, refreshing texture. This potent eye serum infusion is formulated with advanced repair technology shown to help inhibit up to 100% of ozone damage after exposure to high level of ozone[1]. The result is a dramatic reduction of every key visible sign of aging, including fine lines, wrinkles, puffiness, dark circles, dryness and uneven skintone.  Boasting over twenty patents worldwide, this serum is intensely hydrating and helps to keep the entire eye area looking radiant, rested and silky smooth.
POLLUTION INCLUDING OZONE EQUALS DNA DAMAGE
Research shows that today more than ever before, aging environmental assaults such as pollution and UV rays can cause significant damage to the skin and its DNA. In particular, studies show that ozone is a growing worldwide concern, especially in urban environments. Formed by the interaction of UV light with the Nitrogen Dioxide contained in smoke, car exhausts and fumes, ozone is a major concern for skin because it is everywhere, can penetrate quickly and is very reactive. Skin cannot be protected against its visible damaging effects. Based on these findings, Estée Lauder Research conducted a cutting-edge new testing methodology designed to simulate ozone levels in urban environments where ozone pollution is most prominent. Carried out in an O3 Chamber developed for The Estée Lauder Companies, the findings proved that ozone has a profoundly negative impact on skin cells, leading to a decrease in natural energy and an increase in free radicals, DNA damage and inflammation.  In fact, after just twenty minutes of high ozone exposure – equivalent to a walk outside in many major cities in the world – DNA damage increased by 272%[2].  This damage can lead to premature visible signs of aging such as fine lines, puffiness, dark circles, dryness and uneven skintone.
POWERFUL REPAIR TECHNOLOGY FOR THE DELICATE EYE AREA
Understanding that the skin around the eye area is 40% thinner than the rest of the face and therefore particularly vulnerable to environmental damage, Estée Lauder Research pioneered an Eye Physiology Study to build on this knowledge.  Findings showed that the eye area skin is also five times more porous than facial skin[3]and thus more prone to environmental assaults such as ozone and pollution passing through the fragile layers of the skin.  To help boost skin cells’ natural ability to repair DNA damage in this particularly vulnerable area, NEW Advanced Night Repair Eye Serum Infusion’s fast-penetrating, lightweight serum texture contains three powerful, high-performance technologies:
·         Anti-pollution technology: Comprehensive repair technology including encapsulated Alkyl Guanine Transferase (AGT) helps to continuously repair the appearance of damage to the eye area caused by every major environmental assault including ozone, pollution and UV rays.

·         Exclusive Chronolux™ Technology helps support the natural synchronization of skin’s repair around the eye area at exactly the right time. Consequently, signs of aging that can first appear around the eyes are reduced over time.

·         Prevention and hydration: A high concentration of soothing anti-irritants plus a proprietary blend of antioxidants and high levels of proven Hyaluronic Acidwork together to create the optimal environment for the natural protection and repair of the delicate eye area, thus helping reduce the look of dark circles, puffiness and crepiness around the eye.

TESTED AND PROVEN
Using a new in vitro testing methodology carried out in the O3 Chamber, Estée Lauder Research exposed skin cells for twenty minutes to simulated levels of ozone found in different urban environments where ozone pollution is most prominent.  For skin cells treated with the Advanced Night Repair Eye Serum Infusionrepair technology before being exposed to high level ozone for twenty minutes, results showed it helped to inhibit up to 100% of ozone damage[4].
NEW SERUM TEXTURE FOR THE EYES
dvanced Night Repair Eye Serum Infusion is an intensely hydrating eye serum that delivers an immediate surge of moisturization, leaving the eye area feeling soothed and refreshed, creating the optimal environment for eye area skin to repair and stay young and healthy.  Potent enough to be used as a stand-alone eye product, this unique lightweight serum texture can also be layered with an Estée Lauder eye creme for additional targeted benefits.
Recommended for all skin types. Dermatologist-tested. Opthamologist-tested.
Advanced Night Repair Eye Serum Infusion will be on counters May 2013  Suggested Retail Price: TBC

I say those info found to be very interesting and impact-full on me.

Here’s more info on the product:

ESTĒE LAUDER
NEW ADVANCED NIGHT REPAIR EYE SERUM INFUSION
Q&A with Dr. Nadine Pernodet, Ph.D.
Executive Director of Skin Biology, Research & Development
The Estée Lauder Companies
1.       What is ozone?
Ozone (O3) is formed by reactions to nitrogen oxide and volatile organic compounds in the presence of sunlight.  The organic compounds are emitted due to human activities such as motor vehicle exhaust, industrial emissions, gasoline vapors and chemical solvents.  Hot weather and sunlight accelerate this formation process, lending ozone the nickname of a “summertime air pollutant.”

2.       Where is ozone most prominent?
Ozone is everywhere, however levels do vary across the globe.  While ozone helps protect us from the sun’s harmful UV rays when in the stratosphere, when it is on ground level it can reach toxic concentrations and be harmful to skin.  Typically, heavy industrial areas or urban zones have higher ground-level ozone than rural areas, though winds can carry ozone pollutants hundreds of miles away from its original source. 
3.       We have known about ozone for years. Why is it particularly important today?
Ozone is a growing worldwide environmental problem.  For example, the standard level set by the United States Environmental Protection Agency is currently at 0.075 parts per million (ppm) averaged over eight hours.  However, ozone can reach toxic concentrations of even 0.8 ppm, especially in the summer and in some urban environments.  Studies for urban temperatures over the next 70 years project that temperatures could increase above current levels, which could lead to an even more serious increase of ozone pollution[1].  Given that much of the population is living in urban areas, there is a clear need to address the visible impact that ground-level ozone and pollution can have on the look of skin.
4.       What effect can exposure to ozone have on the skin?
Ozone has a profound negative effect on our skin cells and can increase free radicals, DNA damage and inflammation.  This can lead to visible signs of premature aging such as fine lines, wrinkles, puffiness, dark circles, dryness and uneven skintone.  Additionally, skin around the eye area is 40% thinner than skin on the rest of the face, which makes it particularly vulnerable to the environmental assaults that cause DNA damage.  To understand what this means, we pioneered an Eye Physiology Study and found that the thinness of the eye area skin makes it five times more porous than skin on the rest of the face[2].  The unique physiology of the eye area skin is so thin and porous that it allows many everyday assaults, such as ozone, to easily pass through.  Inspired by these findings, we developed new Advanced Night Repair Eye Serum Infusion which has a serum texture that allows for fast penetration of surface layers of the skin.
5.       Can you explain the O3 Chamber in detail?
The O3 Chamber is a cutting-edge new testing methodology that was developed in collaboration with a university.  The chamber features different compartments that can be calibrated at any controlled levels of ozone to mimic ozone levels that have been measured in major cities around the world.  We studied skin cells exposed to both medium and high ozone levels for a time period of only twenty minutes (which is equivalent to a walk outside in some major cities worldwide), saw a 165% increase of DNA damage to skin cells exposed to moderate ozone levels (0.4 ppm) and an increase of 272% after exposure to high levels of ozone (0.7 – 0.8 ppm).  However, when we added the key patented repair technology in Advanced Night Repair Eye Serum Infusion to skin cells, in vitro testing showed it helped to inhibit up to 100% of damage induced by ozone after two hours[3].
6.       What is new about the texture of this serum?
Advanced Night Repair Eye Serum Infusion is Estée Lauder’s first eye serum.  It is specially formulated with a lightweight repair serum texture that is highly refreshing and fast-penetrating.  It delivers an immediate surge of moisturization and can be used as a stand-alone product or because of its lightweight, fast-penetrating texture it can be layered with your Estée Lauder eye creme for additional benefits. 
7.       What is the best way to apply this eye serum?
Apply eye serum morning and night using ring finger. Gently tap serum under eye area from inner to outer eye corner. The tapping motion is gentle and should always move in an outward direction toward the temples.
8.       Can I layer this eye serum as I do with my face serum?
This eye serum is moisturizing enough to be used on its own, similar to an eye creme, however if can also be used with your Estée Lauder eye creme for additional benefits.  For example, you can pair Advanced Night Repair Eye Serum Infusion with:
·         Time Zone Anti-Line/Wrinkle Eye Creme to address lines and wrinkles
·         Resilience Lift Extreme Firming/Sculpting Eye Creme to address lifting/firming
·         Idealist Cooling Eye Illuminator to address dark circles and puffiness

And on the table there’s ANR, the serum, cream and eye serum. I’m thinking of these series has now become a complete set to help maintain a youthful look all the way to the DNA. Yes, I was thinking all of these while decorating the glasses. Most of the time, we are to busy ‘decorating’ our skin with makeup that we forgot to ‘fix’ what lies underneath.

-*-


These flowers looks so pretty and they didn’t dressed up at all, the hydration keeps them plumped and alive. The nutrients may also need to be provided so the flowers may grow beautifully.

So does our skin.

Hello lovelies,

Indonesian Beauty Blogger March 2013 is officially started today ^__^

Created a look like a dazzling Marilyn and win prizes from The Balm, a cosmetic brand from San Fransisco which recently landed in Indonesia.

-*-

Some of the products used in this tutorial are courtesy of The Balm and will help me creating a look that hopefully as mesmerizing as Ms. Monroe herself.

-*-

Here are the three items, Balms Away, the eye makeup remover, Shady lady, an eye shadow with a whole lotta attitude, and Mary Lou Manizer, a highlighter / luminizer that want to get all the attention she can get.


I’ll share Balms Away review on a next post and two makeups here ^__^

-*-


It’s gonna be an exciting next post ^__–

-*-


Let’s start the step to step guide of me trying to create a glimpse of Marilyn’s iconic look.

Start with a bare face.

-*-

Boi-ing, an industrial strength concealer from Benefit to cover large pores, under eye, fine lines and other imperfection.


-*-

Shiseido Lifting Foundation shade I 00, by fingers, dot a few spots on 5 parts and blend away. Covering all the uneven skin tone and creating a base for the skin. Wait for a good 5 minutes before the next step, so the foundation have time to sets in.

-*-

Followed by a compact powder by Estee Lauder.

-*-

I use a foundation brush for CyberWhite EX Extra Brightening Powder Makeup. Make sure the skin is completely dry and the foundation has set before this powder or it will make some blotchy effect.

-*-

Then a Loose Powder from Teint Miracle series from Lancome, a very beautiful light powder that gives the skin a luminous effect with a mild glistening aura.

-*-

On some part Touche Eclat from Yves Saint Laurent is added, then blend with fingers.

-*-

Anna Sui Eyebrow Color Compact is used for my brow in shade 03. Simple, so easy to use and looks natural.

Don’t forget to tidy up the brows first.

-*-

I use a base for eyeshadow using Kate eye shadow in PU-1 inspired by this look from Marilyn,

-*-

She looks stunningly beautiful.

-*-

Maybelline Hyper Sharp Liner for that cat eye look or at least a winged, but I need something more, the lashes.

-*-

D’Eyeko is used, and just happen to be the only lashes I have that able to create a very sexy cat eyed lashes.

Tips of using D’Eyeko that I get from Lizzie, use from the outer side to the inner, and it works!

-*-

A subtle touch of a Cheeky Glow, for that light blushing touch from Maybelline.

-*-

I need a shadow that really perk up the eyes and increase the effect of the sexy lashes, Shady Lady is here.

-*-

Comes in 10 gorgeous shades that’s bold and brave.

-*-

There’s some tiny sparkles, I see they have some shades that’s not available in other cosmetic brands and unique too.
The selling price is Rp.150.000.

-*-

Same goes with Mary Lou Manizer, which I think a must added collection to any beauty pouch. Rp.280.000.

I love this highlighter as it draw attention right through it and exactly where you want the attention to be. Easily blend and watch out, you may in for a spotlight \^0^/

-*-

Then, it’s the lips, I tried making them thin but decided to make it bold and so red and seductive,
Maybelline Red Porcelain, I love this lipstick, like a red leather just landed and rule.

-*-


No Marilyn look would be complete without that famous black dot, right below her left cheek.

-*-


Using the Hyper Sharp Liner again and voila!

I want to go all out with a blonde wig, but try imagining Marilyn in a brunette.

-*-

Using my Philips are a curler, a wave that says, hello, I’m here.

-*-


Get a help from L’Oreal Professionnel Bounce Whip.

-*-


Divide the hair section by section and tongs on! Change my clothes into something with vintage tag label, and I’m ready!

-*-



How do I look?
