Category: Make Up and all it’s glory



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:

PRODUCT DETAILS

Discover the power of a primer with this targeted formula that controls oil and reduces shine so makeup looks smooth, even, flawless.

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.

Hi everybody,

last week is the second event with Shu Uemura Indonesia for their OB collections.

Some of the products are already viewed through the previous post (HERE) while some sold out products are available at Shu Uemura Mal Kelapa Gading counter.

Please do watch the video below:



The products are so cute, right?!

-*-



While walking around at the counter, I also see familiar faces, hehehe, me and other fellow bloggers chosen for the cleansing oil varieties. Please do read why we love our cleansing oils and learn which one suits you best.

-*-



And since there are makeup and look competition for the princesses, I draw something at my sis’s face to commemorate the occasion ^^ she’s the forest princess.

-*-


During the event we have the chance to witness 2 artistes drawing the model from the live makeup demo. There are 4 artistes coming that day and we can see their creations.  It was quite a crowded event and happy to see the traffic from the ongoing lookers.

-*-

The live makeup demo is colorful and the live sketch done following the makeup is awesome. I love how the colors blends in together and how the artistes are using the shu uemura products as their tools. Yes, all the linings are made using eyebrow pencils, the blush on are using lipsticks, the colors are from eye shadows, and so on.

-*-


Ms. Regina, the Brand Manager of Shu Uemura Indonesia happily shares the new collection, the background and Ms.Sesa share the same sentiment. The princesses are unique and somehow reminds me of fairies ^^

-*-


Around 30 minutes the drawing and makeup demo is done. Look at the result? Neat!

-*-


Me with Ella, the lovely makeup artist from Shu Uemura.

-*-


Last but definitely not least, the products and congratulations to all the winners that day ^^ Enjoy the prizes and love love love to read your report soon ya!

-*-

Winners? Yes, all bloggers invited come dressed up like the princess they choose to be and 4 bloggers has been picked and won a pretty palette from Shu Uemura.

-*-


Thank you so much!!!


Hello pretty ladies,


this is another item from the PAC eyeliner collection. I’m still figuring out since each of their shade have slightly different properties than the other.

-*-


The blue one stained, the golden one sparks and easily dry but not the silver. Somehow I have to wait a bit longer for the silver one to dry. Like usual, shake it before usage and gently use the brush to draw the line. I wait around 10-15 seconds like usual when using other liner and they are still pretty much wet.

-*-


The eyeliner get dry longer so it is better to observe it on my hand. The silver line is striking at first but when it is dry they slowly turn transparent and like glitters with clear gel backing. And when gently rub like perhaps by fingers, I’ll get the sparkles alright.

-*-

I’ve been trying to get the liners ‘work’ correctly but so far I still have difficulties in getting them set on the lids.

-*-

So far above are the best results I can get in terms of using it on the eye lines.


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 lovelies,

here is the second event last weekend, with shu uemura Indonesia, it’s ob.

-*-

Every now and then shu uemura keep collaborating with artist and other iconic designer to make a new items and new design to decorate their must have collections, from the cleansing oil to the mousse.

-*-


Since they launched near the spring somehow the collections reminds me of sakura, mamechiyo, and a whole lotta girlie girl princess theme. They are pretty alright and the opposite collection from gothic mon shu girl. Which reminds me of one thing, these collection once sold out, they are gone alright. I remember back in Dec 2012, I want to get myself an eyelash curler with mon shu girl attached, thinking I could wait for a while and later, I have missed those precious moments. So the next time I see something I like from shu uemura limited editions, be sure to get it while it’s hot off the press.

-*-


Featuring 4 princesses, moon, ocean, forest and sakura princess. They are dressed and have their hair colored accordingly.

-*-

There are many collectibles here, from the compact case to the falsies. So cuteee!!!

-*-

The full collections can be seen at their images, but the ones that made it in Indonesia are these:

-*-

After looking at those super duper cute irresistible items, I see the demo makeup is finished, and here she is in sakura mode:

-*-

And I also want some sakura attached to the eyes, so Ms. Dwi create an ocean sakura for me ^^

-*-

Thank you Ms. Dwi and please do take a look at her makeup too, wow! All of the colors of the moon, forest, ocean and sakura are all there.

-*-

Then, we have a chance to get a bookmark made freshly by the artists invited. Psst! These artists are using shu uemura’s products as their tools, so they create shapes and colors with the eyebrow pencils, lipstick, eyeshadow, and many more.

-*-

Thank you shu uemura Indonesia for having me at the event and don’t forget to see you soon at Mal Kelapa Gading on the 25th of May 2013!!!

-*-

See you soon, dressed as one of the princesses and won products from shu uemura ya!

Last but not least, here is my video showing off the products available from the shu uemura ob collections.

-*-

From mousse, cleansing oils, lipstick and falsies. Grab them fast!

Hi pretty ladies,

last weekend was a very busy day for me, 3 events in a row and my strength is limited nowadays, so I made it to 2 of them ^^

One is for Lancome. The anticipated product with Betty Boop, the iconic star which own the spotlight with all her glam and glitters.

-*-

That’s me holding the product right next to Betty. I can’t compare her sparkly curves and she is stunning!! The product is also the same, glittery and like a star twinkling lights in the night.

-*-


Here are some of the collection brought within the Betty collection’s, I’ll share all 5 of them in the video below.

-*-


Here are the bloggers invited, the event start from 10 until around 15, some comes at their own timing since the event is for us to enjoy, thank you Lancome Indonesia, we did enjoy our times with the dazzling lady.

-*-


Then, I’m off for some me time. Free consultation, free makeover, 2 minute aura treatment and polaroid moment.

-*-

Miss Chica turn my ordinary eyeshadow into a smokey va va voom. Using one of the eyeshadow from Betty’s collection, the one with a dark blue and lots of sparkles. It’s truly is like a night sky, panoramic and breathtaking.

-*-

Then the 2 minute aura, the one that always ends with favorite aroma from the Lancome world. Mine is Miracle. A fragrance which open possibilities, dreams and love.

Don’t forget to do a skin check while visiting the Lancome counter, they have tools to check on hydration, lines, pores, sebum, etc. Ask them for a quick and accurate result to get to know the skin better. The staff will also help finding the right products accordingly.

-*-


The result is, my skin need a boost of hydration and it seems like sun, heat and pollutants also make the skin dry and dryer, so I need to keep myself protected by using hydrating skincare and keep myself away from the sun as well. Sun protection like high SPF lotion is needed, hat and umbrella also encouraged.

-*-


Don’t forget to check out the video to found out the 5 shades of eyeshadows and the dazzling mascara too.

-*-

Au revoir!

Hi everyone!!!!

I’m here with a mascara from Naris Up.It’s called Wink Up Maxigrade Mascara EX.

-*-


A simple yet provocative image on the product. The eyes become so wide and looks bigger. I want those lashes please ^__^

-*-


Details from www.narisup.com:

Ingredients:

Water, ammonium acrylates copolymer, beeswax, (alkyl acrylate / VA) copolymer, BG, stearic acid, ethanol, dilinoleate (phytosteryl / isostearyl / cetyl / stearyl / behenyl), AMP, carbon black, hydrogenated polyisobutene, nylon-6, silica, carnauba wax, panthenyl ethyl (octyl acrylamide / acrylic acid hydroxypropyl / methacrylic acid butyl amino ethyl) copolymer, sorbitan sesquioleate, laureth -21, PEG-20 Sorubitankokoeto, polyacrylamide, tocopherol, PEG-40 hydrogenated castor oil, ceteth -25, metaphosphoric acid Na, dimethicone, laureth, titanium oxide, phenoxyethanol, Cetyl alcohol, dehydroacetate Na, methyl paraben, ethyl paraben

-*-


It is said to add length, curl and volume too. A multifunction mascara and waterproof as well for a long lasting usage.

Below is the actual product. The small brush with black creamy yet still a smooth liquid mascara.

-*-



I wish the brush on the tip is at least the same size with the rest, since usually the mascara will gathered on the tip and create a gunk-full of mascara when accidentally touches the eyes.

-*-


Still nothing beats the actual result, here are the photos of my before after:

-*-



Before and after on right and left side of the eyes.

-*-


Both eyes before and afters when closed.

-*-



The mascara clearly add volume and length of my lashes.

-*-

When the eyes is opened. On my right lashes appears better than the left, I’m not using any eyelash curler, perhaps when used both will appears similar. Nevertheless, the mascara helps my eyes to appear larger, with or without eyelash curler and mascara.

-*-


And I’m doing a 5 and 8 hours test on the mascara. There are some breakage found but the mascara proved to be smudge-proof and waterproof. The detach ‘false’ lashes from the mascara also easily cleaned, just wipe it off with a tissue/cotton bud or clean dry fingers. Later on, after finished using the mascara a good foaming facial wash will help remove the mascara completely clean. I’ve tried using a cleansing oil and it doesn’t work. I think a warm water do a better job in cleaning Maxigrade Mascara EX, or with foaming facial wash.

-*-

Overall, I think this is a wonderful and effective product in helping the lashes to appear longer, darker and more than without. My husband compliments the look as it seems like I’m using falsies. None other mascara has earn his praise ^___^

-*-



Thank you Naris Up.

Tips: When applying the mascara, try to stay in a cool room and when your body temperature is low (as in not sweating), so the mascara may set nicely and completely dry. The mascara will last all day long but dry air is always preferred and help them stay on longer than in hot and humid climate. When error are made, try to leave them on a while since the mascara is easier cleaned when dry than when still wet.

Product is available in Singapore and on selected stores.

While Ms. Laila continues with the demo, team The Body Shop shares more and Q&A as well with the media.


The Body Shop® Luncurkan Moisture White Shiso BB Serum Inside:
BB Cream Dengan Kandungan Serum Yang Memiliki 8 Manfaat

Cara praktis untuk base make up sekaligus membantu melindungi kulit wajah dari sinar matahari serta merawat kulit agar menjadi lebih cerah

Jakarta, 7 Mei 2013 – The Body Shop® menghadirkan Moisture White Shiso BB Serum Inside kepada masyarakat Indonesia. BB Cream yang dikombinasikan dengan serum tersebut dirancang khusus untuk kulit Asia. Di dalamnya antara lain mengandung bahan Shiso yang membantu meratakan dan mencerahkan kulit wajah, serta SPF25 PA+++ yang bisa melindungi kulit perempuan Indonesia dari sinar ultra violet sebagai akibat dari perubahan iklim. 

Peluncuran Moisture White Shiso BB Serum Insidedigelar di Jakarta pada Selasa (7/5) yang diisi dengan talkshow dan demo oleh The Body Shop®. Hadir sebagai pembicara di acara tersebut Astrid Indrasari, Training Manager The Body Shop® Indonesia, dan dr. Amaranila Lalita Sp.KK, Dermatologist, serta artis Mellisa Karim sebagai moderator.

Astrid Indrasari mengatakan The Body Shop®  terus melakukan berbagai inovasi dalam menciptakan produk kecantikan alami. Demi menemukan bahan-bahan alami terbaik dan mempersembahkan produk dengan manfaat bagi kecantikan alami konsumennya. Kali ini The Body Shop® memperkenalkan Moisture White™ Shiso BB Serum Inside, BB cream pertamayang terdapat kandungan serum didalamnya dan dirancang khusus untuk kulit perempuan Asia termasuk Indonesia.

dr. Amaranila Lalita Drijono Sp.KK menambahkan bahwa BB Cream merupakan sebuah revolusi didalam dunia kosmetik kecantikan, dimana dahulu, BB Cream (Blemish Balm Cream) awalnya dibuat di Jerman hanya untuk membantu menutupi bercak-bercak kemerahan atau dark spot pada kulit   para pasien setelah tindakan peremajaan kulit dengan laser,  pengelupasan bedah kimiawi,  operasi dengan laser dan lain-lain. Kemudian BB cream dikembangkan oleh Korea sehingga menjadi trend di industri kosmetik saat ini, dengan mengembangkan BB cream bukan semata krim pelindung yang hanya berfungsi sebagai foundation/alas bedak yang membantu menutupi bercak-bercak tersebut (efek kosmetik) tapi juga mampu memberi nilai tambah untuk perawatan kulit si pemakai dengan ditambahkannya berbagai bahan aktif yang bekerja semisal untuk melindungi kulit dari sinar matahari, melindungi  kulit dari radikal bebas, mengobati jerawat ringan hingga membantu menyehatkan kulit seperti mencerahkan warna kulit.

Moisture White Shiso BB Serum Inside merupakan produk yang memiliki delapan manfaat, yaitu Brightening, Instant Hydration, Natural Finish, Soothing, UV Protection with SPF 25+++, Lightweight, Evens skin tone, Easy blend able. Jadi moisture White Shiso BB Serum Inside lebih dari sekadar BB Cream. Moisture White Shiso BB Serum Inside berfungsi sebagai base make up sekaligus merawat kulit. Perempuan saat ini menginginkan produk yang lengkap dan Moisture White Shiso BB Serum Inside merupakan produk make-up yang dapat juga sekaligus merawat dan melindungi kulit wajah,” kata Astrid Indrasari.

Moisture White Shiso BB Serum Inside diramu dengan berbagai bahan-bahan spesial seperti tanaman tradisional Jepang Shiso, vitamin C, tanaman akar manis (liquorice), dan lidah buaya organik. Shiso merupakan sejenis mint yang dipercaya mengurangi tanda-tanda awal produksi melanin pada kulit sehingga kuit lebih cerah dan bercahaya. Vitamin C merupakan antioksidan yang sudah dikenal luas dan membantu mengurangi produksi melamin berlebih. Tanaman akar manis kaya akan kandungan flavonoids dan dikenal meningkatkan kecerahan kulit. Lidah buaya memberikan rasa segar dan sejuk pada kulit.

dr. Amaranila Lalita Drijono Sp.KK menjelaskan bahan-bahan alami yang terkandung didalam Moisture White™ Shiso BB Serum Inside merupakan bahan-bahan dasar yang aman bagi kulit dan punya manfaat bagi kesehatan  kulit.  Contohnya, kandungan bahan lidah buaya yang memberikan efek calming (menenangkan) ini cukup penting dan bermanfaat bagi kulit perempuan Indonesia. Jenis warna kulit perempuan Indonesia seperti bagian dari perempuan Asia lainnya itu mempunyai lebih banyak pigmen sehingga lebih mudah menjadi  gelap bila mengalami iritasi ringan sekalipun seperti yang ditimbulkan oleh gesekkan, garukan, panas, adanya kontak dengan  beberapa bahan kimiawi tertentu yang dapat bersifat iritan bagi kulit, yang kesemuanya ini dapat menyebabkan  warna kulit menjadi lebih gelap, timbul bercak gelap pada kulit atau flek kehitaman. Atau dengan kata lain, setiap iritasi pada tipe kulit Asia akan berpotensi membuat warna kulit menjadi gelap. Adanya Aloe Vera atau Lidah Buaya dengan efek calming diharapkan mampu meredam iritasi-iritasi tersebut, sehingga mampu membantu mencegah terbentuknya noda gelap pada kulit Asia.

Moisture White Shiso BB Serum Inside khusus dikembangkan untuk perempuan Asia dan telah diuji. Dari 100 perempuan Asia yang mencobanya, 71% melihat kulit mereka tampak lebih baik secara instant pada saat penggunaan. Produk ini terbukti memiliki manfaat kecerahan dan meningkatkan kemilau kulit. Hal tersebut hasil dari bahan-bahan organik, sehingga juga aman untuk kulit dan pemakainya tidak perlu khawatir adanya efek samping bahan-bahan kimia.

Bahan-bahan organik dibeli dengan sistem Community Fair Trade yang menguntungkan masyarakat-masyarakat lokal. Bahan aloe vera untuk Moisture White Shiso BB Serum Inside dibeli melalui Community Fair Trade dari Guatemala dan pembelian itu digunakan untuk membantu instalasi pompa air irigasi untuk petani-petani daerah El Progreso, Guatemala.

Hello everyone,

this particular item is perfect for those who wants a fuss free item in their daily routine of using skincare.

-*-



Details from www.v10plus.co.jp:

Type: Basic-Care

All-in-one simple & perfect beauty gel.
This all-in-one beauty gel contains OSC (Ocean Stress Complex) made by Vitamin-C which contains OWC (Ocean White Complex) . 5-In-1 White Gel enters into the depth of the skin (basal stratum) and attack the Melanocyte directly.
This beauty gel has 5 effects of:
TONER
MILK
MOISTURIZER
BRIGHTENING
MAKEUP BASE.
Freckles tend to show in the dry type skin. To solve this problem, this beauty gel increases the moisturizing power with Seaweed and Pearl extract.
How to use
Morning and evening. Pump a small amount and apply evenly over the face after the serum. Let it work for a few minutes before applying your sunblock.

-*-


For someone who always says we need a lot of products and an all in one rarely works. I stumbled to the one that actually does.

-*-



It was like a magical product for me, used after a serum and that’s it, no need lotion, emulsion, essence, and so on. Just serum, V10Plus Nano gel 5 in 1 and sun protection or BB Cream when I want to use makeup afterward. It is a wonderful product indeed.

-*-


The texture is light yet hydrating enough, slightly cool and refreshing, no grease, oily nor residue found. The skin feels moist but not overwhelmingly done. I don’t know how to explain this but the skin get enough plumping effect with no leftover, like the skin drink it all up and be happy about it. It’s like snow, or water drops on the skin, but effective in enhancing my skin to be and look better, pampering and satisfying. So it is really a toner, milk, moisturizer, and base in one. I don’t know what does it means by brightener, but I think it was like a pre makeup base that helps lifted up the look for that soft radiant glow, because that’s what I get as well.

-*-


Overall, this multi-function gel is a must try item from V10Plus, I’m in love with the texture and how it felt on my skin: unique and wonderful. I’ve used it these past few days and my skin doesn’t suffer any discomfort in any form. I’m not recommending the product as a night cream, personally I love a night cream with a more hydrating effect. So I only use the V 10 Plus Nano Gel 5 in 1 during the day and before I put on my makeup. It helps my makeup to stay on longer than ever before without being dry or looking matte nor unnatural. No grease as well so the makeup doesn’t easily melts away.  Suitable to be used in a hot/humid temperature. It does help the skin to appear fairer and achieve that luminous complexion with the lightest feeling possible.

V 10 Plus Nano Gel 5 in 1 is available in Japan and Singapore.

-*-

Try it to believe it!

Hello lovelies,

here is my recent purchase for Rp.99.900 from Duo. Available at selected Guardian shops near you. I’ve been using Lash Grip for years and since it was not easily obtainable in Indonesia,  DUO become an option for me. One, it look like a twin sister of Lash Grip. Two, the variation, and last, they have one in black heehee.

-*-




Details from duoadhesives.com:

Don’t forget to watch the video provided by Duo Adhesives on their website.

-*-


As easy as one, two, three. Prepare, glued on and stick it. I love the dark since when dried somehow appeared to be like a black eyeliner and hide imperfection, plus, it does made my eyes looks bigger too.

The slightly milky dark grey glue will turn into solid black once dried. That’s why it appears as if I’m using a black eyeliners. The glue can be added accordingly after usage with a tooth pick for precise measurement, just be careful not to poke your eyes with the sharp tooth pick (ouch!).

-*-



On me the glue sticks as long as I want it too, so far I’ve used it for 2 hours, 4 hours, and maximum would be around 10 -12 hours when I have an event all day long. So it has depends on the events and how long I have to use it. The tricky part is not to sweat or let it get wet/humid before completely dry and set on the lid.

The part where it usually detach first is the one at the inner side of the eyes. Maybe since it is the most humid place compared to the outer side. But when used in a dry and cool room the glue sets better and the fake lashes wont easily apart from the lids all day long.

So whenever I use fake lashes I have to bring the glue along for backup plan as well, just in case something wrong happen and I wont have to ended up with half lashes on.

Remember:

Prepare everything before hand, like measuring the lashes, bring the cotton bud/tooth pick/ other tools you might need, clean fingers, so when the glue is applied and waited to be half dry, your fingers aren’t too busy doing something else. Wait till half dry? Yes, lashes glue are best to stick it on when half dry, not when completely wet. Completely wet means mess and there wont be enough glue left on the exact place meant to be.

Half dry is characterized by tackiness and exact stickiness. Trial and error is necessary ^___^ Practice before the big event, okay?!

-*-


Cleaning wise, if you love your real lashes, in the first place you should not let the glue touch or reach them. So when pulled it will be pulled from the lids. So far, DUO haven’t give me a clean finish, so it will be leftovers that need to be picked, kinda troublesome. Dolly Wink has better glue, one strike and all glue are out.
