Philips Satin Perfect

Hello ladies,

these tool has been my best friend for years. It’s a perfect solution to be used at home. Since I’m not qualified in waxing, shaving is known to have ‘side effects’ such as darken the area where shaved, to more hair growth (either rumor or true, I choose not to do it) and the growth also faster compared to epilating. Pull the hair out. Yes, it is a bit painful but there are some tricks I know up to my sleeves \^0^/

-*-

This is the box, inside there’s the product, product warranty, details, information and some attachments to be used along plus the charger.

-*-

Beside as an epilator there’s a shaving head as well, just in case shaving is needed instead of epilating. Everything is neatly tucked in inside the box after opening I can throw away that big box because a pouch is provided enough for the whole item.

-*-

6 cool features inside one. Here’s some details from www.philips.com:







And beside all those wonderful things above there are small items which I think made them into perfection, a small brush to clean in between the grid.

-*-


A tweezers which I can use to tidy up the brow. It got small mirror and equipped with light, small, handy and very convenient during traveling, or just about anywhere. 

-*-



The tweezers when the lights is off.

And of course the main attraction, the epilator, it have lights as well so I wont missed small hairs. I love the fact that the product is cordless, so I can easily move the product anywhere I please and sleek too in terms of design. The battery last quite long, 40 minutes non stop for me means no hair underarm. legs, feminine area and hands as well. The charging time also decently fast with a screen to show me when it’s done, so there’s no room for overcharge or undercharge.

-*-

There’s the indicator.

Now, as mentioned above epilating can be a bit painful, so here’s some tips from me:

1. Avoid epilating during and before menstrual period as the skin is more sensitive.
2. Do the epilating after a warm shower/bath as the skin pores is loosen.
3. Never do it on a broken skin (broken as in boo boo, other kind of irritation, and other irregular condition).
4. If you happen to have very sensitive skin or easily irritated use a tea tree oil or skin soother after epilating.
5. Hair removal cream 5-10 minutes before epilating will weaken the hair and make epilating painless but some hair may broke and not pulled from the roots.
6. Do not sunbath before and after epilating, at least 48 hours before and after.
7. Rinse the skin with cold clean water after epilating to help ‘closing the deal’ (the skin) if skin soother is not available.
8. Don’t forget to read the manual carefully before using any tools/appliance ^__^

That’s it, hope it helps!


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!

-*-
