Hello everybody,

boys and girls ^__^ since this one item can be use as a unisex product. A lip balm by Mentholatum is here. Hearing the word mentholatum made me think there’s a menthol inside every products, well, not this one.

-*-

Details given from Mentholatum Singapore:

The success of Deep Moist is due to 2 main factors, its premium hydrating ingredients at value pricing, and its elegant, ergonomic packaging design.  
a. The key moisturizing ingredients in Deep Moist lip balms are:

  • Hyaluronic Acid, a premium ingredient that forms a smooth, moisture locking shield for softer, smoother lips.  It can hold 1000X its weight in water, or 6 litres of water with just 1g.
  • Shea Butter heals the skin, and gives a soft, pleasant texture to the lip balm.  
  • Jojoba Oil gives pro-longed, whole day hydration to the lips.

b. The Deep Moist lip balm comes in an innovative Emerald Green, oval-shaped container design that fits the corner of the mouth well and makes it easy to apply with a single swipe. A Japanese consumer commented, “This oval-shaped design fits the corner of my mouth so well that the Deep Moist lip balm can be applied easily without affecting the foundation near my mouth.”

-*-

And the details from the packaging, and below my experience in using it.

-*-

I use it before I’m using lipstick and after, or anytime, it doesn’t matter, I even use it right before bed for a smooth lips in the morning. I crack the sides of my lips and it is so painful, this lip balm able to hydrates the part within 2-3 days. It is indeed a unique product and I can see why it is loved by many. Light yet deeply hydrating with zero feeling of grease nor oily.

No scent, mo minty feeling, just plain moist.

-*-


A shape that is likeable unisex and design, I think men will like it too since there’s no glossiness. My husband’s lips always got chapped whenever he travel abroad and he hates most lip balm on the market, but he likes this one alright. Chap and girlie free lip balm ^^.

-*-


I leave you with my before after image. The product may be used several times a day, for me? I need to reapply it once every 3 hours.

Thank you.


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.

Also another event last Saturday,

a very busy day to me, invitation from Clinique Indonesia come for me to share testimonial in using RepairWear Laser Focus Eye Cream (HERE) and Chubby Sticks (HERE).

-*-





All who came received minis from Clinique which can be used during travelings.

-*-


The event held in front of SOGO dept. store at Plaza Senayan.

-*-

Before the event, I have a quick touch up using Clinique makeup ^__^

-*-


The white and simple design of Clinique has been their signature for decades. Over the years Clinique not just rooting in skincare but makeup too.

-*-



Here are the chubby sticks \^0^/ highlights for the day. I love all their colors and wished I have all of them heehee, they are like grown up ‘coloring crayons’.

-*-


Ms. Tia, the MC has started. I better join her in the stage. She asked about my experience in using Repair Wear Laser Focus Eye Cream and the Chubby Sticks. Two sensitive area on our face which require special attention. Both get a wonderful feed back from me. The eye cream feels smooth on the skin and able to reduce fine lines in a matter of weeks and the lip balm with colors aka Chubby Sticks is a delightful balm for the lips. Cheerful colors and hydrating effect unlike other balms which in the long run will actually cause chapped skin.

-*-





Then, we take a spin around the counter and I give a final tips for everyone, please do a skin check up or consultation before purchasing any beauty products so the beauty adviser may advice you the correct product for your skin and how to treat it, care for it and enhance the beauty of the skin.

-*-





A demonstration of how the process goes, anyone may come to the counter and ask for a free skin consultation. Then, like my sister on the above image, the beauty adviser will ask her several question regarding her skin’s condition, habit, etc.

-*-

With that famous chart from Clinique, the type can be determined. But, it doesn’t stop there.

-*-


Get ready to be magnified ^0^

-*-


A thorough skin check including putting the skin under the spot lights, touched by the staff and make the skin looks bigger so the pores looks obvious.

-*-

A series of products will be suggested just for her skin type, you can have yours too and don’t forget to check your skin on yearly basis, since sometime the skin does evolve.

Thank you Clinique Indoensia.

Hello lovelies,

these cuties need no introduction as I believe it was among the products that create a lot of buzz and so famous. And yes, all for the right reasons as well. They are superbly well, adorable, and just irresistible.

-*-



(Those jellies in the ads are so spot on, they got my attention alright)

Details from www.clinique.com:

Super-nourishing balm is loaded with mango and shea butters. Just what dry, delicate lips need to feel comfortably soft and smooth. Sixteen natural-looking lip tints in all, each with a subtle sheen.

  • Apply directly to lips. For subtle definition outline lips first, then fill in with natural-looking colour. Never needs sharpening: simply swivel up to reveal more lip colour balm.
    -*-

I got mine in Oversized Orange, Curvy Candy and Pudgy Peony. Thank you so much Clinique Indonesia \^0^/

And I’ll review all three of them.

-*-




Let’s start with Pudgy Peony, a color which I always want to have but never have the courage to actually get one and use it until now. I love it. It was like shouting for attention in the sweetest way possible. The balm fills in the fine lines on the lips, moisturized and comfortable. I expect a thicker feeling on the lips, but there’s none. The sensation it gives still pretty light. I wish it comes in various scent as well, heehee.

The shine it gives is just right, not greasy, but enough to be use daily or just about anytime.

-*-

The tint will last on the lips even after eating and several wiping action. So it’s a lip balm with attitude.


The next one will be Curvy Candy.

-*-




Heehee somehow it match a bit like my nail polish. The Chubby Stick is chubby alright and I like how easy it is to use them, like normal lipstick, spin them to get the inside come out. The lid is secured, I rarely experience a fall out and the balm is quite sturdy too, it wont easily break even though it has properties like a lip balm.

-*-



Between these three shades I have, Curvy Candy is the ‘safest’ choice of them all. As the color is light pink, suitable for daily usage, office life and even going to the mall or dates. 


-*-



Then, the not so easy choice which I found to be my favorite shade, the Oversized Orange. Above is the look with a night light and below with a bright sunlight.

See the difference?

-*-

Imagine using a bright orange shade in the day time and looks energized, perky, and fresh. The shade gives me option in a way that enlighten the whole look, actually all their shades presented here giving me a younger look. And the title ‘lip balm’ also does it’s way around too heehee. Beside keeping the lips moist the product is definitely not overwhelming.

They are not exactly light but not heavy either, they are somewhat in the middle. Perfect for anyone who are looking for color, hydration, simplicity, and 16 choices of shades too (plus they are adding 8 more). I can see clearly why some are addicted to the products, me too! 


Hello ladies,

Petal Pink is in da house. A lovely bright pink hue for the lips from Za Cosmetics.

Details from za-cosmetics.com:

-*-




10 shades for us to choose from and mine is 01.

-*-



The packaging is cute and very girlie. White pearly covering with letters Za printed on it.

-*-



With Prismatic Red Pigment and moisturizing agents and vitamin E, the lipstick does feels rich on the skin without drying the lips. It is quite pigmented and so pinky pinky =^__^= I don’t remember the last time I use such a pink lips.

-*-




The neat packaging is sleek and looks suitable and presentable to be carried around daily. A trademark of a hip Japanese product. Yes, Za is from Japan.

The lipstick fills in the lines on the lips, here is an image of my lips using it, looks so sweet isn’t it?! The look below is my lips without any base or lips pencil.

-*-

Overall, it’s a moisturizing lipstick without being too greasy nor oily on the lips. There’s a light scent but definitely not overwhelming, so it is a pleasing scent and feeling on the lips also quite light.  It doesn’t gives my lips any enhancing effect, it just show the lips in colored version. Suitable for daily use and hopefully all the nutrients and ingredients which is said beneficial on the lips shows result for a long term usage. Will I keep using it? Yes, since the lipstick feels comfortable with a nice touch of fresh colors.


Hey cutie!

Yes, it’s a greetings to all of you and the same time the name of this particular item from ZA of Lip Drops series.

-*-



LIP DROPS


Drop Seal Formula gives the lips dewy finish without stickiness.
Collagen Complex provides long-lasting moisture and prevents dryness.

-*-

The lippie smells good, like a mixed of something berry and flowery. The color is wonderful and very cute. The lips felt an immediate smooth feeling and sensation but still considered sticky for me. A bit sticky on the lips although not so much compared when they are in touch with the hairs and it is rather inseparable.

The lips does feels the moisture and dewiness away from dry chapped condition.

-*-


This is the clear vision of the result of Hey Cutie, Lip Drops, so juicy and looks watery on the lips covering everything on top. May be used above lipstick as well for that gloss that only lip gloss can give.

The small tube is perfect to be tucked in almost everywhere. I know someone who only carry lip gloss during a night out, she tuck it in her bra and touch up almost every time for that irresistible sexy lips all night long, fuss free and she doesn’t have to carry any purse and be a dancing queen.

Helloooooooo ^0^

These items are friends to the lips and frankly I’m not really using lip balms, since if left too long it might cause the lips to chapped as well. So usually I used them during traveling to a dry climate.

However, now Nivea has come with more variant that can be use daily and heeheehee so juicy that encourage me to use them daily or at least more often than before.

Here they are, some I already share on my previous post (HERE) but none given for the look on the lips . . . until now ^__^

I like to bring the med protection during traveling, especially on a long haul flight, winter wonderland or other extreme condition. The SPF 15 is protection against the sun, the hydration is smooth and away from greasy nor oiliness. Smooth sailing all the way with no scent, no taste, no color, and  . . . let’s just say plain lip balm packed with protection to the lips. Like condom to your lips.

I like to use the fruity shine cherry when I want a touch of red and replacing the lipstick. Add a bit shine, balm-ish, smell like cherry, and repeated swipe will increase the redness level. I always use it alone without lipstick while other lip balm here used on top/before a lipstick. 

I like to use vitamin shake when I need something fruity and smells good. It perk my mood up and bring more vitality with the juicy feature. This one is a fun lip balm for the whole family. Packed with vitamins such as C, E and B5, yums!

Now, the pinkish boost.

I like pinkish boost when I need an ultra luscious lips and feeling seductive, oh wow, where should I begin with this one, from looking at the bright milky pink creamy liquid I knew it was something that add ‘boost’ on the lips. From the shine, silky feeling and oh la la, romantic date? Here I come!

Good morning everyone!!

Last week I went to an event called “Sparkling Brunch with NIVEA” where we all share a meal with the lovely Miss Julie Estelle and Ariani Rudjito (BM of NIVEA Indonesia).

In here we are also commemorating 100 years of NIVEA.

The venue, which is in Yeyo (Senopati) is dressed in white and navy blue.


Nivea Visage is a series for the face area and Nivea Lip Care presented.

 On each table lip balms and products from Nivea Visage is given. On my table is Fruity Shine Cherry Lip Balm and Nivea Visage Whitening Scrub.

Soon the event began with a sound of a cheerful MC.


Followed by Ms Julie and Ariani. Sharing their experiences in using the products by NIVEA.

This is me with the scrub. The packaging is simple with white and pinkish hue, it somehow represent how it would create fairer skin with a touch of blush on the cheeks.

Details from nivea.com

Daily exposure to sun, dust and pollution can leave the skin feeling lifeless and looking dull with dark spots. The needs special products to combat these factors. NIVEA developed Sparkling White Whitening Scrub to remove deep impurities and bring out your glowing skin.

How it works

NIVEA VISAGE SPARKLING WHITE WHITENING SCRUB Deeply whitens and removes dead skin cells for glowing fairness without spots and dull skin.
White Crystallites, in combination with White Pure Actives, support the skin lightening process and bring out your inner glow. Micro-beads genlty remove the dead cells while respecting the skin’s moisture balance.
Result:
The skin is gently purified and dirt is removed leaving the skin feeling fresh and glowing

Use once or twice a week as a part of your face care routine. Apply gently massaging onto your wet skin with finger tips avoiding the eye area. Remove with water.
For best skin results, use the complete range of NIVEA VISAGE Sparkling White.
Compatibility dermatologically and ophthalmologically approved.

White Pure Actives and micro-beads


A very small white beads in a white creamy texture. Very fragrant, which for me I found it a bit overwhelming, it smells good, if it’s in a bottle of perfume not as a skincare. The beads feels rough on the skin like most scrubs and deliver a clearer skin away from dead skin. After splashing some water the cream will easily lathers and cleans away all the debris. Leaving the skin clean, a bit squeaky, fairer. Suitable to be used 1-2 times a week.

Next, it’s a very familiar product in my household, NIVEA’s lip balm which we uses for the last 15-20 years. It comes in many different varieties from the original to the latest variant.

Now, let’s see the Fruity Shine Cherry.

Details from nivea.com

Taste the scent of summer cherry while bathing your smile in a glossy shine, with deep red tones on top. The new formula of NIVEA Lip Care Fruity Shine Cherry combines rich almond oil, jojoba oil and shea butter to keep your lips as soft and fresh as they can be!

How it works

  • Delights young delicate lips with fruity scent and smoothing, long lasting care
  • Naturally enhances your lips with shimmering pigments and a soft glossy colour
  • Contains SPF 10, protection against UVA and UVB rays

With a light SPF the red colored lip balm is lovely as a coat for the lips. I used it instead of lipstick for my daily activity but need to be re-apply every 3-4 hours and remember to always drink a lot with juices and fruits to be consumed as well. The lips is a sign of a healthy person, chapped, dry and pale means the condition is not well.

Sometime I use the lip balm as the base or after a lipstick too. It added another dimension to the lips, more juicy and the cherry scent also so lovely.

The affordable product also friendly for the whole family.

And, a new family member is coming to town. The Vitamin Shake.

details from the packaging:

The Vitamin Shake in Cranberry & Raspberry with Vitamin C&E and Pro-Vitamin B5 gives the lips a touch of natural pink with fruits aroma such as cranberry and raspberry. SPF 10 helps protecting the lips from UVA and UVB


Compared to the sister product (Cherry) which is solid red, the Vitamin Shake is a swirl of peach and red color… and for me the concoction smells really yummy. But both gives the lips the same feeling and moisturizing ability. Enough smoothness without being too much, a bit thick and feels creamy too.


Swatches on the napkin and below on my hand.


I can only see the cheery on my hand while the vitamin shake stays are a skin shade. I wish NIVEA lip care can come up with more variant so I can use 30 different taste, smell and texture for every mood I have.

 Thank you so much for having me and I’ll share more reviews on the products given ^__^ see you soon!

Hi everyone!
Yes, another belif’s products are newly available in the counter and they are like gems to me. They have so many irresistible items for a skin lover like me.

Today I’m going to deliver some of the new items which easily noticeable and interesting.

The Sebum Control Mist Green and Sugar Coat Lip Balm

Sebum Control Mist Green

Product Description

Sebum control mist green gives immediate moisture and controls excess oil with its sebum control herb complex. The mist stops grease and controls oily skin.

No addition of

No mineral oil, no synthetic fragrances, no synthetic colors, no synthetic preservatives, no animal-derived ingredients

To Use

Close your eyes and spray three or four times from about 20cm distance from your face. Apply regularly and provide moisture while preventing oily grease and sebum. The mist reduces facial oil and helps your makeup.

The light mist is comfortable to be use compared with other sebum control mist I’ve used before.

No residue, no white talc, no white powdery effect, no fuss and doesn’t make the condition worst (like some other product that actually causes the skin to produce more oil). The clear mist feels like plain water but help to set the makeup and reduce the appearance of sebum. The skin feels softer and smooth.

I wish they come in a smaller bottle for traveling or just put it inside a small bag so I can keep reapplying after 4 hours or so (depends on the skin condition and activity).

Sugar Coat Lip Balm

Product Description

Lip balm treatment that leaves the lips healthy and hydrated so that they look silky and glossy as if they were sugar-glazed. Rich with hydrating and smoothing elements, it seals in moisture and protects the lips from the environment. It is formulated with the herbal ingredient Stellaria (Chickweed), effective for hydrating and preventing skin troubles, particularly the delicate skin of the lips which are often prone to dryness.

No addition of

Mineral oil, Synthetic fragrance, Synthetic dyes, Synthetic preservatives, Animal-origin ingredients.

To Use

Take a sufficient amount, spread smoothly over the lips and dab lightly for better absorption.

A simple lip balm that works!

Clear, soft, balmy, and gives the lip a moisturizing effect with less greasy feeling. The lips will heal and the chaps will go away. I use it after a lipstick for a more delicate and less boldness. May be use on a naked lips as well. But I prefer the balm to come in a tube form for hygienic reason.

Use it on a very dry skin too such as knees and elbows.


Hello ladies,

Here are some products from SILKYGIRL from their recent event (HERE).

Details from http://silkycosmetics.com

Silky Lips Magic Pink Lip Balm
is a fun-to-use magical lip balm that changes into a natural sheer pink color when applied on lips and has a formula that lock in 6 hours of moisture; keeping your lips moist, smooth and soft.

It contains anti-oxidants of Vitamin E to protect lips from the harmful drying effects of the environment and retains skin elasticity. It is available in 3 fun fruity flavors – Strawberry, Cherry and Fragrance free

Silky Lips Sheer Lipcolor or Color Lip Balm
Cool Girl Silky Lips Sheer Lipcolor is a lipcolor packed with generous amount of moisture and sheer color that also cares for the lips. It is infused with natural ingredients such as Chamomile Flower Oil, Hybrid Sunflower Seed Oil and Seaweed Extract. These properties help to smooth out roughness, relieve dryness and condition lips.

The Silky Lips Magic Pink Lip Balm is the one in pink packaging and white balm. The balm is melting on the touch of the lips, like butter on a hot pan. The mints is so cooling, wow, menthol indeed. I understand why they say it is fun to be used.

Mine is in 08 Strawberry and on the lips it’s like sheer strawberry color, suitable for daily use for looking so light and the moisturizing effect as well. Feels a bit oily on the lips, I like to dab a tissue a bit so I don’t look like I just ate something greasy.

But, when I dabbed the tissue on the lips there’s not a dot of color there, just a clear balm. So probably the balm shade come out when reacted by … warmth?

So I tried to draw them on a piece of paper, the Magic Pink Lip Balm looks purplish while the Color Lip Balm 04 Romantic Pink is … pink on the paper ^__^

Pink on the lips and feels like a lip balm too. Moist, not as moist as the Magic Pink Lip Balm but still moist like a regular lip balm on the market.

The shade last for 3 hours and the lips stay moisturized. The color is bolder than the Magic Pink Lip Balm but not as pigmented as other lipstick. So still, SILKYGIRL is in their comfort zone in giving us a light cosmetics suitable for daily use and those whose young (at heart and real life) and a touch of caring with the nourishing oil and shea butter in it.

Overall, both of the Silky Lips products give the lips a silky feeling, moist and felt pampered. The Magic Pink Lip Balm have minty fresh sensation with sheer red color while Lipcolor gives the lips a bolder lips almost like a lipstick with a feeling also almost like the Magic Pink Lip Balm. Both product easily crumbled and the shape is smaller than my lips, too small perhaps, I wish it come on bigger form like regular lip balm, but maybe this product is made for teens or young customers with smaller lips.

Next on line, I’m trying the Shine-free Loose Powder, mine is 02 Natural Medium.


 A translucent loose powder for that finishing touch after your liquid foundation. This product gives you a soft and natural look. Eliminates shine with its oil-free formula. Available in 2 Asian shades.

The loose powder is easily used and the shade is a bit darker than my natural skin shade, so it looks like I’ve been spending hours at the beach. Aside from the color the loose powder does gives me a mattefying effect for around 4-6 hours in normal condition (inside building and not in heavy movement such as exercising). The powder is not super fine, so be careful when using it, brush is preferred than the given puff for better result.
