Good day everyone!!!

It’s a bit cloudy today and I can barely see the sun. Where is it hiding underneath it all?! But we don’t have to hide, at least the dirt, makeup, and any leftover residue would not have to hide at our pores and clogged our breathing skin.

I’m trying a Multi Cleanser from Laneige to help me with that problem, hopefully after this the problems are solved.

-*-


Details from laneige.com.sg:

Product Benefits

– A new 4-in-1 cleanser removes makeup, removes sunscreen, exfoliates and cleanses at once.
– Micro-sized dense foam removes makeup completely leaving fresh feeling
– Mild plant-based cleansing ingredients and Papain enzymes, the exfoliating enzymes extracted from papaya fruit, remove makeup completely and exfoliate for smoother skin.
* Completely removes base makeup, such as sun cream, BB cream, and foundation, as well as color makeup.

How to Use

1. Wet face and then release about a coin-sized amount of cleanser to massage onto face and melt makeup.
2. Use every day to purify pores for brighter skin.

-*-



The travel size is enough for a 3 days usage. I’ve tested the product several times and during various condition of the skin, with makeup, with sunscreen, with nothing and just daily debris, etc. I think the texture and scent is quite nice, easily lathered when put on more that other foaming cleanser I’ve used on but haven’t been able to clean the waterproof makeup such as mascara.

-*-

The lightly baby blue colored creamy gel able to clean the rest, from sunscreen, base makeup, daily debris with a light exfoliating action but it has to be as a double cleanser (after makeup remover). The lather is friendly to my skin, cleanse without striping the moisture off.

Overall, in terms of texture it is wonderful and if used enough would lather up into this lovable dense foam perfect for cleaning but it wont be able to completely clean makeup especially waterproof makeup. To be used as a double cleaner is perfect for it’s cleaning properties, removed all residue left by the first cleanser, and lightly exfoliate the skin without striping the skin dry.

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.


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.

Hello everyone,

last week I was invited by Laneige Indonesia on a celebration day opening their counter at Seibu. A Korean luxury products with Ms. Song He Kyo as the brand ambassador.

-*-




Customer and visitors can see her everywhere, from the skincare range to the makeup. Yes, Laneige promise a one stop beauty products for the ladies. -Laneige Homme also available in Korea and hopefully soon in Indonesia.-

-*-



Still holding on to their motto where beautiful skin comes from hydration. Be waterful. A moist, dewy, and healthy looking skin.

-*-



From cleanser, toner, essence, moisturizer and all the way to the makeup, the same principal is sought through. The beauty is in the skin. Highlight of Laneige makeup also on the skin, Korean belief a woman appears beautiful when her skin is flawless and radiant.

-*-



A combination between white and blue decorate the  counter. Then, I went to the Beauty Lounge for media registration.

-*-



More images on Ms. Song, her look seems effortless yet strikingly gorgeous at the same time.

-*-


I strike a post before going in ^__^

-*-


Inside 3 bestsellers are there. The Sleeping Pack, Water Essence and BB Cushion. I’m using the BB Cushion that day. It was light, pleasing, cooling and a suitable amount of coverage for a naturally flawless skin without being too much. The skin still able to breath and feels so comfortable.

-*-

Laneige has officially re-entering Indonesia. Re-enter? Yes, years ago Laneige has left Indonesia, but due to the demand, they came back. With the same formula of hydrating the skin, Laneige is here to make a mark.

-*-



Seibu is the first, 5 more counters is and will be here in Indonesia. They have many promotion going on during the first month, so do come to their counter. They also have free makeover and consultation with Korean professional makeup artist from today until 21st of April 2013 at Mal Taman Anggrek and Grand Indonesia (in front of Seibu) on my next post I’ll share my makeover inspired by Ms. Song created by Laneige.

-*-



The mc soon greeted us for coming to the event, media and 3 beauty bloggers are invited.

-*-



Ms. Dian the Brand Manager share the concept of Laneige and where the counters will be.

-*-



A representative from Laneige Korea shares with us how Indonesian may benefit from Laneige, all of us needs water on daily basis. Stay in an air con room almost all day long will deprived our skin from hydration. Laneige can help fulfilled the needs of water on the skin, to keep them young and healthy.

-*-




I know for sure, I need that. I love anything that has to do with moisture/hydration, I believe that when the skin is moist, it become stronger, more flexible and away from lines/wrinkles.

-*-

Now, let’s cut the ribbon shall we? And voilla! The counter is officially open and celebrated. Customer may enjoy consultation and try Laneige products on the spot.

-*-



Thank you Laneige Indonesia for inviting me and see you soon.

More reviews on Laneige are coming your way ^__^

-*-



Hi everyone,

this item is no stranger in the beauty world, I have know and used it around 5 years now and the Sleeping Pack has gain favors from a lot of customers and reviewers around the world.

-*-

This is the travel size edition.

Laneige philosophy are based on water, where hydrated skin is the best condition skin. Plump, dewy and visibly moist. Ms. Song, the brand ambassador is famous for her youthful skin, perfect for Laneige image where proper hydration can keep the skin young and healthy.

-*-



Now, before starting with any of your skincare regime, make sure to clean your hands even thou’ starting the regime with cleansing. So the product may do they job precisely at facial area. Imagine the hands already so dirty, the cleansing agent already so busy cleaning the hands before even touching the face. This cutie is an antibacterial hand soap which I use before taking care of the face.

-*-


Now, let’s move on to Laneige Water Sleeping Pack _ EX, all product details from www.laneige.com.

After the face is cleaned, you may use toner/lotion and then apply the Sleeping Pack generously to the whole area, for me I like to massage them a bit before leaving them on. Just make sure all the wonderful slightly creamy gel is distributed and there’s a thin layer left after massaging.

-*-



The night time hydrating system will help the skin to regenerate, rehydrate, boosting their performance and adding moist to the skin so the lines are filled up. The skin become elastic and this is what we called young.

You may read the ingredients and other benefits directly from the website and I’ll share with you my personal experience in using it.

-*-





I remember vividly as 5 years ago, I’m still in my 20’s I use the Sleeping Pack and waiting for the pack to be absorbed, or at least sunk in the skin, so I can twist and turn during bedtime. Little that I know back then that a little massaging action goes along the way. And 30 minutes before bedtime also helps in making sure the pack has set, so most of the nutrients ended up absorbed by my facial skin instead of by the pillows.

-*-




I love the texture of something imitating a gooey-ness, the light blue milky color and faint scent is suitable for introducing a night full of wonderful dreams and waking up looking hydrated, fresh and ready for the day.


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.


Hi everyone ^__^

Especially those makeup-addicts. IBB is back with makeup challenge and as always as staff we will provide some looks for you to copy. We gladly do that as well.

After trying to figure it out a unique topic for the members, one of the staff (start with letter H) really want a Valentine with no pink with it. Say whattt?? Valentine is all about pink, so now, try to twist your mind into something romantic without the signature color.

Register here: CLICK ME.

And thank you Make Over for the prizes so the girls (or boys) can win some of these wonderful goodies. For a look using products from Make Over, you all may visit Carryna’s blog.

Now, here’s mine

Here are all the products I’ve used for the look, variety from Anna Sui, Laneige, Palgantong, Estee Lauder, The Body Shop, Dasoda and Lash Grip. You may search their individual review at my blog on the labels or search through the search tab.
Using Laneige Snow BB Soothing Cushion SPF 50+ PA +++ as a base. This is the first time I’m using the product and it was quite easy to be used and lovely. Later I’ll provide the review on another post.
 
Below is the image of me after using Laneige.
Mine is No.21 Natural Beige. The shade is very natural as most BB Cream will gives skin a greyish tone or whitish, so it is not really natural. Really natural? Yup, they are ‘mild’ on the skin, like light-medium coverage and look somewhat natural compared to ‘old days’ foundation. But nowadays, foundation already gives us so many choices to look like we are on our ‘born-with’ skin.

So back to Laneige, the Snow BB Soothing Cushion is able to make an evenness, covers most of the problems and ready for some colors.

Add Palgantong powder so there base are set finely. This product is still my best loose powder for being so good in not melting. It kept the makeup sets for 12 hours or so. I’ve used it during my trip to Osaka in summer and touching up is a privilege. This powder is able to stand through sweats and sebum for more than 12 hours. Just remember when sweating to dab on the tissue and don’t swipe. Dab is the best thing for a settled makeup.

The thing I do next is adding some blush on from The Body Shop, it’s an old product which I still love thanks to the shimmering effect of a rosy glow. Not pinky ya, rosy.

Make eyebrows using Anna Sui’s brow set, and eye shadows as well and make it all about sophisticated purple. A strong yet still romantic tones to be used in Valentine.

And adding some purple lashes. Using Lash Grip is wonderful as it is black in color and sticks for the whole day as long as during usage, it is waited until dry and no sweat has touched the unset glue. Removing the glue is tricky as it will not come off altogether. Or perhaps I use too much? In my defense if I’m using less, it will be gone in a few hours.

An eyeliner is added, DASODA is used and a stay on waterproof eyeliner also help to masquerade the gap between the fake lashes and the real one attached to my eyes.

Last, after seeing the whole look, I think my eyes should be the center of attention, I use a peachy gloss on the lips from Estee Lauder.

 
And the makeup is done, but Valentine wont be suffice with this look, I need a wardrobe to make them complete.

 

In a magenta colored dress.
I’m ready! Submit yours soon ya ^__–

Hi all!

After quite a while now I make another LOTD and show off some of the collections that I already reviewed some time ago 🙂

Here are the products used:

Illuminating Perfecting Primer by Estee Lauder, review and details HERE.

Shu Uemura UV Under Base BB Mousse, review and details HERE.

Revlon Touch & Glow Extra Moisturizing Face Powder, review and details HERE.

with the help of The Body Shop Mineral Foundation Brush, slightly details HERE.

Dolly Wink Eyebrow Pencil in Honey Brow, review and details HERE.

Anna Sui Liquid Eyeliner, review and details HERE.

Aqua Liner by Make Up For Ever, review and details HERE.

Laneige Volume Finish Blusher in 204 err . . . I never made a review about this product, well let’s do that now. The mono rose is a bit coral (just a tad) and gives me a plain brick look, which is suitable for daily use but for special occasion, I need something more which gives gradation, sparks like glitters perhaps and glow.

Shu Uemura Rouge Unlimited, review and details HERE.

I started by using the primer from Estee Lauder and always on a clean moisturized skin.


After primer the skin is ready for makeup and light one will do since the glow, radiant and better looking complexion are achieved by the primer. Different primer gives different effect, mines give those illuminating finish with pearly touch.

Then I moved on to Shu Uemura BB Mousse, an all in one solution for coverage, sun protection and smoother looking skin. After the BB Mousse I always apply on loose powder, which is Revlon now and use brush for both BB Mousse and loose powder as the powder helps the application more even and finer result.

Moved on to the brow, I trim mine a bit before using the pencil brow from Dolly Wink, brush it with the ones attached to the pencil and help the color to cover the brow better. I love how soft the brush is and I gotta say, Dolly have the softest brush and as effective as other brands which is harder and not gentle on the skin.

After the brows, I moved on to the eyes, creating eye liners using Anna Sui’s on the lid and make some cat-eye look. Careful that some people have different eye (left from the right) and I’m one of them so I need to be extra gentle and take more time if I want an exact same result, but nowadays as I pay attention on makeup world in the runway, it is okay to slightly different. Still same stroke of application but the result can be a bit different one eye to the other. Same rule goes to the brows as well. So you just relax and portray your own definition of beauty.

The lower part of my eyes I uses Aqua Liner from MUFE in purple, adding a twist of colors there. Continues with blush on from Laneige and the smooth operator lippy from Shu.

Final touch for me? Lashes, it create a different me all at once. Love it!

Do you like makeup? Which one you love the most and a must have for you?

>Renew Challenge

>The Renew Challenge is officially started for me. I just use it for the first time today. As I opened the lid of each bottle I get more and more excited. I love how these small blue bottles will change my looks in a matter of a month. I have my high expectation on them since Ms. Song He Gyo herself believe in. Look how gorgeous her skin is in the website and on all her movies (+ commercials).

Okay here I start: the first one is toner, which is the first time I use a gel like toner, it glide so smooth to my skin, I didn’t use cotton because as I notice in all Korean Drama they use their hand and tap all the nutrients ingredients in, they claim it’s the best way to use a toner. So I did. I like it, I find it amusing.

The second part is the emulsion, massage a little bit to make it more absorptive. And by doing so I notice my facial skin is far away from smooth. I feel a lot of bumpiness here and there.

The third part is essence, massage and tap is the key.

4th is for the eyes area, separate from day and night to keep the dark cirlce, wrinkle, and puffiness away.

Last but definitely not least is the moisturizer which is a cream like but feels like a gel that can easily penetrate to my skin, love it, I really do, feels cool and fresh at the same time gives moisture (after all it is a moisturizer) ;p
