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?

Yves Saint Laurent reveals the 1st beauty “antidote” to short nights, a new product inspired by the beauty secrets of professionals. An ultra-gentle resurfacing and re-texturing concentrate to smooth the cutaneous micro-relief and re-plump the skin. Upon awakening, the skin quality is transformed, visibly smoother and more radiant, as after a good night sleep. Fresh and unified, the complexion is ready for a flawless make-up application.

How to use:

Apply on cleansed skin as a night treatment, may be applied in the morning as well.

I’ve tried using the product at night and morning (both after cleansing-toning-serum). And I like it better as a night treatment since I want the ‘juice’ to  stay longer untouched. Since on the day time, I need to top it off with sun protection, make up and so on. At night, it will be the final layer and Iove how smooth it is.

The Beauty Sleep is a milkish gel that feels comfortable on the skin. Smells really good (like any other YSL product) and gentle to the touch. Convenient as it is far from sticky and give the skin a glistening look, another reason why it is suitable to be used at night time. But hey, if you’re looking for a plumped skin anytime, it can be use anytime as well. 

It provide hydration, radiance, and better skin from one use. Use it every night for that pampering love all night long.

Help me to become the Shining 30.

Thank you so much.

Free from abrasive particles, this honey-coloured gel is comprised of sugars and ultra-fine oils. On contact with the skin, it transforms into a light oil and then into a milk that gently removes dead skin cells and impurities during rinsing. The skin is smoother and softer, the complexion purified and brightened. Rich in essential trace elements and vitamins, it leaves the skin relaxed, purified and delightfully replenished. For all skin types, even sensitive skin.

Hmm, first of all, I found them as golden colored gel as there are gold tiny particles, not honey, gold. It was wonderful as I dislike most exfoliator, I found Yves Saint Laurent to be super gentle, comfortable and luxurious.

The texture and feeling is exactly like Clarins Cleansing Gel (the cleansing oil in gel form). Rub the gel on a dry skin, this golden gel smells good (like all YSL products), like perfume good. And keep massaging the skin until they become less thick and transform into liquid. Slippery liquid that easily glides on the skin, small areas, and under the nose and between the nose and cheeks. I love love love this kind of exfoliating. No particles, no tiny beads, no abrasives thingy, pure love heehee ^0^

Then add a bit of water (just like using cleansing oil) and emulsify, it wont create any foam, so it will be like this milky liquid, massage it again before the final rinsing. Result? A clean, moist, supple, wonderful skin that feels soft to the touch. I feel it the most after drying it. Usually most exfoliator gives me uncomfortable after feeling such as dry, sensitives and a bit redness here and there. Top Secrets Natural Action Exfoliator from Yves Saint Laurent gives nothing but pleasure.  It defines exfoliating in whole new way.

Hi all!

After using the products for almost 3 weeks and I guess the whole set given to me could last for a month (thank you so much Yves Saint Laurent Indonesia XOXO) I can give you my review now ^__^ but please do read my previous post HERE regarding the product’s details and information.

Now, let’s start with the review, shall we?!

The foaming cleanser. Over the periods of time using it I still didn’t get used to it yet. It still didn’t give me the ‘clean’ feeling I like. Not that squeaky clean feeling, more to the fresh feeling of cleanliness.

Somehow the foam like creating a film on the skin, it was lovely alright and the perfume as well, very much pleases me, but I need more freshness of a clean feeling. But, if anyone looking for a beautiful cleanser with more pretty pretty scent and delicateness, delicate skin condition and delicate cleansing suitable for even the sensitive skin, it’s your match ^__^

Then I use my own toner/lotion (depends on the skin condition at the moment) before applying this gorgeous serum.

The one that really get my attention. A very lovely serum that feels pampering the skin from the moment it touches my skin. Oh yes, before moving on please do view some videos from YSL on how to apply each product correctly, they do have some procedures to make the products works better and optimal.

Click –> HERE and enjoy the presentation. Personally I think the videos are relaxing and enjoyable to be watch than watching me demonstrate them to you haha!

Okay, how do I feel from using the serum?

Comfortable is definitely my first reaction, the lovely pinkish gel is like my skin’s best friend, no, lover. It pampered the skin in a way that I can see the result by days of using it. The skin become smoother, more hydrated and plumps too. I’m not gonna says that I get younger by using it, but time feels stop and the skin doesn’t age.

The serum (and the whole set) looks more visible during stress and unusual condition. I traveled to Japan 2 weeks ago and the night flight gives my skin a dry condition. Do you know that the humidity level when the plane is way up there is only 20%? That’s drier than the Sahara. So that’s why the skin gets really dry.

Using a very good and rich formula will help the skin to cope on dryness. But the moisturizer aren’t as moisturizing as I hope it would be, we’ll get there later. So I use other moisturizer with this serum that offers more hydrating effect and it works just fine.

I did a mistake thou’ during the flight I clean my face with wipes (a big no no) as the wipes dries my cheeks, causing them to be more sensitive and irritated. And it causes me a bit discomfort as well for the next few days. Again, these conditions proven how the serum helps my skin gains it suppleness.

Highly recommended and can be use with other brand and/or range of series.

Next in line is the eye creme.

Also one of my favorite eye cream out there. It was delicate and eye friendly. Not heavy and not sticky. Usually anti aging eye cream feels so heavy and thick. After applying the eye’s become greasy and worst, some of the cream gradually goes into the eye, causing irritation and discomfort. Forever Youth Liberator Eye Creme is wonderful. So easy to absorb and doesn’t glide all over the eyes. Safe to be used around the delicate eyes.

Makeup also undisturbed whatsoever. Eye shadow, liner, etc works on just fine. Proving how they absorbed and stays protecting the eye’s area without greasiness and leftover. My eyes looks fresher and smoother.

Perfect for those looking for eye cream that gives more benefit than fuss.

Last, but definitely not last, the moisturizer.

Like mentioned on my previous post the velvety smooth cream is not oily at all. In fact I actually need more hydration, so for me, it is suitable more as a day cream than night cream. The positive think about the cream is that I love how it made my skin stays true to itself.

After using the cream I use my sun protection, makeup base and so on, it doesn’t create an unwanted grease. So everything feels light, hmm, an anti aging cream that feels so light is like a dream come true. It’s rich alright but doesn’t feel piling up my skin nor oiliness.

Overall, using all of these products does give me a fresher looking skin, better complexion and smoother look.

Well, a picture will meant more than just words 😀 so here it is:

This is me after using the YSL Forever Youth Liberator products constantly for the past few weeks. The picture is real, unedited at all. I love my complexion, glow, radiant and even thou during the trip I suffer from lack of sleep (I really like traveling, so usually I went to bed around 1 AM and wakes up around 6 AM exploring the new world means more outing than sleeping), heat (summer in Kansai is really hot alright), humidity, and sweats a lot with those exercise (walking and taking public transportation, nope, I’m not joining any tour, it’s all free and easy), and many more traveling condition, I can clearly say, my skin looks great!

Thank you Yves Saint Laurent Indonesia and you for reading my post, hope it helps and see you on my next posts \^0^/

Welcome to Yves Saint Laurent newest flagship counter in Seibu Grand Indonesia, Jakarta.

Complete with the whole products of Yves Saint laurent Beaute and you’ll love spending times here with the glamorous look of all those colors and gold on a black counters.

One arrays caught my eyes, the lipsticks, drools ^0^ fascinating! Imagining myself having these complete colors . . . I’ll stay home and for days keep looking at them LOL

And then the perfumes, hmm, they smell soooo good. Luxurious, bold and definitely lovable.

Do I still need to comment on this pic? Just look at it and awe.

Beside the fixed counter, for a limited time there are stands for promoting YSL and get special promo and consultation from the staffs.

This is my sis, we get to play with some of the products as well, her lips are in purple shade (above) and it is sparkly purple. I really like it, it is unique. And (below) she is using the cheek blush with a pink lipstick afterwards, I guess she is more of a peachy pink than bold sparkling purple.

Then followed by some snacks, more like a tea time at Beauty Lounge.

I got this delicious chocolate cupcake and did you see my nails? Yes, another YSL product.

Here are some pics of me at YSL

Don’t forget to come to YSL counter at Seibu, you won’t missed it, they are right near the entrance of Seibu.

Nail color (above) I’m using Corail Colisee, which is a coral and my sis (below) using the Nail Laque in Pop Art, which is red. I love the coral shade so bad.
The liquid did dry fast, at least faster than OPI but you still need to wait around 10 minutes before touching hard objects.

Check out their gifts for customers.

And the latest perfumes.

And here we are, the beauty bloggers invited for the event and the goodies bag we’ve received.

Au revoir!

Hi all!

Forever Youth Liberator by YSL is here!

What is Forever Youth Liberator?

Here’s some details from and let’s see the products given to me by Yves Saint Laurent Indonesia.

Inspired by Glycobiology:

The Science of the Future

After DNA and stem cells, Glycobiology is recognized as one of the breakthrough sciences of the future. Awarded 7 Nobel Prizes, Glycobiology provides deeper understanding of the body’s biological mechanisms.
Glycobiology is the study of glycans, molecules which are naturally present in the skin. Glycans are responsible for directing communication between cells, ensuring that they send and receive the messages required for optimal performance. Without glycans, cellular communication breaks down and the body cannot properly function.

A Major Discovery in Anti-Aging

With age, the quantity of glycans naturally decreases, slowing the skin’s regeneration process and triggering the visible of aging: wrinkles, loss of density and dullness of complexion.
Yves Saint Laurent introduces GlycanActifTM, a patented complex which imitates the action of glycans, helping to restore your skin’s youthful beauty.
YSL SkinScience is a committee of experts in Glycobiology that applies the latest scientific breakthroughs to skincare.
YSL SkinScience experts created the patented, powerful GlycanActifTM which helps the skin reproduce the “youth cellular keys,” glycans, which decrease with age. Reactivate your cells’ vital functions and liberate your skin’s youthful beauty.

I have 4 items, they are the Cleansing Foam, Eye Creme, Serum and Creme.

Forever Youth Liberator:

The Ritual

  1. Purify

    The Cleansing Foam gently lifts impurities and removes makeup, leaving your skin perfectly cleansed.

  2. Prepare

    The Lotion revitalizes the skin, leaving it feeling soft and comfortable. Pores appear smaller and skin looks smoother and radiant.

  3. Activate

    The Serum contains the highest concentration of GlycanActifTM to visibly transform the appearance of your skin. Women agree:

    • Instantly, skin looks more luminous and soft
    • After 1 week, skin feels more moisturized and supple
    • Within 1 month, skin has visibly improved: tone and texture are more even, wrinkles are lifted, bounce is back and radiance returns.
  4. Treat
    The Eye Creme instantly brightens the eyes. With continued use, it reduces the appearance of fine lines and dark circles. The Creme SPF 15 provides instant moisture and comfort to the skin, while improving its texture and elasticity. Protects from daily sun exposure with an SPF 15. For normal to dry skin. The Fluide SPF 15 provides immediate hydration in a lightweight formula, while improving skin’s texture and elasticity. Protects from daily sun exposure with an SPF 15. For normal to combination skin.

Use it per order 1,2,3,4, and 5. Since I don’t have the toner or lotion, I’ll use another brand along with Forever Youth Liberator. But as you read along the order made by YSL is 1,4,3 and 5. Here are some details and a bit of reviews.

• Comfort
• Softness
• Radiance

A delicate cream that transforms into a dense, fine foam upon contact with water.

Suitable for sensitive skin, it rids skin of its impurities, eliminates traces of make-up and leaves the skin perfectly cleansed. It feels soft, moisturized and highly comfortable with no tightness.

After gently rinsing Forever Youth Liberator cleansing foam, the complexion looks clearer and more transparent.


Emulsify the Cleansing Foam with water. Apply to moist skin and gently work up a lather. Rinse with warm water.

As seen on the image above, the thick cream create a milky fluid as mixed by water. Like emulsifying. The scent is wonderful at it is a significant fragrance created by YSL, kinda like their trademark.

The slightly pink cream is rich and feels like pampering the skin while cleaning it from daily debris. You need to put on some makeup remover before using the cleansing foam if you have some makeup on since the cleansing foam can not clean make up.

YSL perfume is definitely there, it’s like a way of loving us and tell the world the cleansing foam definitely belongs to YSL.

• Instant radiance
• Increased hydration after 1 week
• Wrinkle reduction and increased “bounce” within 1 month

The star of the Forever Youth Liberator range, the Serum contains the highest concentration of Glycanactif™ to stimulate regeneration deep within the skin and to boost youth-promoting functions.

Women agree, it transforms the appearance of the skin. 
• Instantly, skin looks more luminous and soft
• After 1 week, skin feels more moisturized and supple
• Within 1 month, skin has visibly improved: tone and texture are more even, wrinkles are lifted, bounce is back and radiance returns.

Apply to clean skin in the morning and evening.
Follow with your favorite Forever Youth Liberator moisturizer and Eye Cream.

Hmm, so the eye cream really used after the serum,

This is the serum, the one that created all the fuss in the beauty world heehee. The texture is somewhat gooey, like a gel but a fluid gel. Absorbed very fast on the skin but remember to massage the skin accordingly, massage it? Yes, ask the staffs at YSL on how to put them on correctly. You’ll enjoy the pampering moment even more and achieve better and giving optimal result.

For me from the first use the serum gives my skin a more supple and bouncy look in an instant. I’ll keep using the product until they are finished before giving you my final review.

• Anti-puffiness
• Anti-wrinkle lift
• Brightens dark circles

A unique texture designed to visibly re-contour the eye, instantly. In addition to Glycanactif™, soothing ingredients refresh and relax the eye area, while micro-shimmer particles provide smoothing and illuminating effects.

The eyes appear fresher and more radiant:
• In one month, dark circles are less noticeable and seem to have disappeared.
• The eye area appears more toned, as if “lifted”

Apply to clean skin, around the eyes, morning and evening.
May be used under makeup.

The eye cream is a delight. Light cream that feels like a gel more than a cream. I also use it on my lips, instant smoothness and hydration is created. And on the eye’s zone the cream also easily absorbed and not sticky at all, kinda suitable for me who hates sticky eye cream heehee. The eyes instantly looks brighter and hmm, can’t I say tighter? More like firmer.

Last but not least the cream, but I can’t find the details from the website, but I found it here:

  • FOREVER YOUTH LIBERATOR is the 1st skincare by Yves Saint Laurent containing the Glycanactif™, a patented¹ combination of 3 glycans, to help increase youthful activity in skin cells.²

  • This creme for normal to combination skin types, envelops the skin with a satin-like texture.

  • Immediately, the skin feels refreshed, suppler and more comfortable. The complexion looks fresher and feels softer.
The cream is definitely thick and feels so rich but it’s not oily at all, like really at all. It gives me a velvety smooth finish and firmer looking skin. Again, more review will come up after using it in a significant amount of time.

That’s it for now ^__^ See you soon!

Hi hi hi hi hi ^0^

I’m back with another make up remover and now it is from YSL.

For your eyes only…

Refreshing and non-greasy, this bi-phased eye cleansing lotion dissolves all make-up, even waterproof and long lasting, without leaving an oily film on the skin. Enriched with provitamin B5 and Chamomile extract, it protects and fortifies the eyelashes, while enabling you to apply make-up to even the most sensitive of eyes. Free of all traces of make-up, your eyes look bright and relaxed. Suitable for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers.

The video shows how it cleans without any doubt but I can still feel the oiliness and a bit discomfort because of the oiliness, which later I need to use a cleansing facial foam to removes the oils. Except from that it’s all good.

Remember to shake the bi-phase product so it become one and moist a cotton pad with it. Then all the makeup will stays on the cotton pad and no longer at your eyes zone. It is gentle alright and highly effective but I’m not fond of the grease.

Hi all!
Touche Eclat is here and I’m going to share you my experience of using it ^__^
If you need more information regarding the product, I already write them at my previous post, in the Press release, celebration and event (click on the word you want).
Now, let me share my personal experience using mine, given by Yves Saint Laurent Indonesia (thank you so much). Upon using the product for the first time, I need to click it several time until the liquid is out. Take your time, don’t over do it 🙂 the liquid are precious.
I use it after using makeup, actually you can use it just about anytime you want, before and after make up. My favorite location is near the brows. It enhance my eyes in a way that none can. Smooth, enlighten and no trace, it’s like pure natural (and now you know it’s not, it’s Touche Eclat).
Then in any part I want to be enhance, I use Touche Eclat. Beneath the brow, below, nose, etc. It really is anywhere you want. Don’t forget to blend it well and you will notice the very smooth ultra find ingredients and since now they come in 8 different shades, you’ll be sure to find the shade you want. I also advice you to try different shades as it can give you choices and find different tone to create many looks. From shading to enhancing the possibility is endless.
This is my final look using Touche Eclat. I’ve done no shading at all so everything here is pure colors from makeup and the rest is Touche Eclat. The glow is just irresistible. No wonder a very famous celebrity in Indonesia used Touche Eclat for her entire face, and inspired by her, YSL will launch a new product, just you wait!

But before that, let’s enjoy Touche Eclat ^__^ I know I do.

Watch my video of using Touche Eclat here:

Hi \^0^/ beautiful!

Here’s a glimpse of the event Yves Saint Laurent just have yesterday, it was classic, sophisticated and luxurious.
