Good Bye 2013~

Today is the last day in 2013. As I write this post, I heard many fireworks sounds outside my house and also the sounds of trumpets and motorcycle. I don't have any special event to end this year and to celebrate new year because BF is having a holiday with his family at Jakarta. So, I just spend my night at home with my mommy and my lovely doggie.

2013 is a complicated year for me. I learn many new things, meet new peoples, travel to new places and there are many good things and some bad things happened this year. But after all, I feel thankful because GOD still give me a chance to celebrate this year with people that I love and love me.

Now, I will continue my post with some christmas pictures. Yes! I'm still in the mood of christmas~ how come december end so quickly :( I wish it will stay longer hehehe. I celebrate many christmas dinner with my friends. I also did christmas swap until 3 times with different groups.

Christmas Wishlist~

Hello all~ I know it's already near the end of the year and christmas already passed few days ago. But, I hope it's still not to late to post about my christmas wishlist~ hehehe.. This time I make my christmas wishlist from Miss Lie website. Here are the top 3 on my wishlist~


The first one on my wishlist is the famous eyelash curler from Shu Uemura. I think I don't need much introduction about this product. This product already well-known for its quality eventhough the price is quite expensive for an eyelash curler. I really want to try to use this eyelash curler and then top it with my favourite mascara from Maybelline, I think my eyelashes will look awesome~


One of my favourite BB cream is from Skin79. I never tried the pact before, that's why I'm quite curious about this one. The pact contains pearl powder and also has SPF 30. Complete formula in one pact! and not to forget about the pink packaging~ ahhh I need this in my make up pouch!


Well, I tried almost the same essence like this from Missha before, but I don't see any different result from it. But.... one of my beauty blogger friend has a very good review about this essence. She said it makes her face clear and supple~ omooo~ who don't want a bright and clear face? I WANT! *put this on my wishlist!!! wait.. it's already on my wishlist..wkwkwk*

That's all my christmas wishlist for this year~ well, I hope I can get one of them by joining an awesome giveaway from Beauty Appetite feat Miss Lie Collection.

Review: The Natural Story Oatmeal Body Soap Bar [Sponsored]

Hello ladies~
Melanjutkan postingan kemarin tentang produk handmade dari The Natural Story, kali ini aku akan mereview tentang body soapnya. The Natural Story memiliki beberapa varian body shop antara lain:
  • Sabun Beras Jepang ~ Berfungsi mencerahkan dan membuat kulit kenyal, lembab, dan halus
  • Korean Red Rice Body Soap ~Mengurangi jerawat dan menutrisi kulit
  • Oatmeal Body Soap ~ Mencegah kulit kusam, kering dan bersisik
  • Rose Body Soap ~ Berfungsi sebagai aromateraphy yang menenangkan


Varian yang aku review kali ini adalah Oatmeal Body Soap. Sabun Oatmeal ini memiliki beberapa manfaat bagi kulit kita yaitu:
  • Melawan Kulit kering karena kandungan dalam oatmeal baik untuk memerangi kulit kusam dan kering
  • Melembabkan kulit
  • Aman untuk kulit sensitif
  • Menjaga kesehatan kulit
  • Mempunyai pembersih natural yaitu saponin yang manfaatnya membersihkan kotoran di dalam pori-pori
  • Meredakan kemerahan akibat iritasi, gigitan serangga, dan alergi
  • Membantu menghilangkan bekas luka akibat gigitan nyamuk, serangga dan alergi


Kemasan dan Harga~
Sabun mandi ini berupa sabun batang yang dikemas dalam kotak kertas sederhana berwarna cokelat. Warna kotaknya yang seperti warna tanah membuat produk ini semakin tampak sangat natural. Di bagian tengah sabun terdapat ukiran natural story dan dekorasi gambar burung merpati. Ukuran sabunnya cukup besar yaitu 80 gr dan harganya Rp 15.000

Fungsi~
Sabun oatmeal ini bagus sekali untuk mengatasi kulit kering. Seperti yang pernah aku bilang, aku memiliki tipe kulit wajah yang oily tetapi untuk kulit badan cenderung agak kering. Sabun oatmeal ini memiliki scrub alami dari oat. Jadi pada saat mandi akan terasa sedikit ada gesekan tetapi setelah dibilas dengan air, kulit tubuh terasa halus sekali. Scrubnya pun tidak terlalu kasar sehingga tidak sampai melukai kulit tubuh.

Sabun ini memiliki wangi seperti wangi susu kalau menurutku. Ada sedikit aroma manis tetapi tidak berlebihan. Untuk yang suka sabun mandi yang wangi sekali mungkin kurang cocok dengan sabun ini. Tetapi secara keseluruhan aku tidak ada masalah dengan wanginya~

Kesimpulan~
Aku sudah memakai sabun mandi ini sekitar 10 hari dan aku padukan dengan penggunaan beebalm juga, dan sampai saat ini aku bisa merasakan kalau kulitku terasa lebih halus. Terutama di daerah siku dan lutut yang sebelumnya agak kasar.

Visit The Natural Story if you want to buy this body soap :)

Review: Etude House Look At My Eyes Cafe + EOTD + FOTD warm christmas~

Merry Christmas everyoneeee~~~

Selamat natal buat semua teman-teman yang merayakan. Hari ini aku mau share sedikit review dan make up look untuk menyambut natal. Review kali ini tentang eyeshadow dari Etude House. Yay~ setelah cukup lama vakum nulis review tentang produk korea, kali ini muncul lagi review tentang Etude House~


Salah satu sponsorku D.L.Y berbaik hati mengirimkan produk ini untuk aku coba. Produk yang dikirimkan adalah Etude House Look At My Eyes Cafe. Harus aku akui kalau Etude House selalu memberikan nama yang unik dan packaging/bentuk yang lucu untuk setiap produknya. Untuk eyeshadow ini, walaupun kemasannya biasa dan simple, daya tariknya ada pada produknya.


Eyeshadow ini memiliki emboss berbentuk hati. Cantik sekali, walaupun eyeshadowku berwarna coklat (BR404), tetap terlihat imut. Bayangkan jika eyeshownya berwarna pink atau merah... pasti lebih terlihat lucu lagi.


Satu hal yang cukup membuat aku kaget adalah eyeshadow ini cukup pigmented. Berdasarkan pengalaman sebelumnya saat menggunakan eyeshadow Etude House yang seri lain, kebanyakan teksturnya berserbuk dan warnanya susah keluar. Tetapi saat aku men-swatch eyeshadow ini, warnanya langsung keluar dan cukup terang walaupun hanya sekali usap. Sedangkan untuk teksturnya juga tidak menyerbuk. *yay~* Hasil akhir dari eyeshadow ini adalah matte~ tidak ada shimmernya. Biasanya kebanyakan eyeshadow Korea bermain di shimmer yang agak berlebihan menurutku. Tetapi eyeshadow ini malah sebaliknya. 

EOTD~ menggunakan Etude House Look At My Eyes Cafe BR 404 + warna gold dari MUA palette.


Dan seperti yang aku bilang, aku juga mau share make up look untuk natal. Kalau biasanya natal identik dengan warna-warna cerah seperti merah dan hijau. Kali ini aku mencoba menggunakan coklat dan emas untuk make up look ini. Jadi ceritanya seperti warm christmas~ hehehehe..

Coral Blush for my cheek and Red Coral for my lips~

 Zoom in~ Excuse my chubby cheek~~~~ oomoo >_<

Different Angle~

Well, that's all for today post~ Oh ya jangan lupa mampir ke sponsorku:

Review: The Natural Story BeeBalm [Sponsored]

Halo semuanya~
Kali ini aku mau mereview tentang produk handmade dalam negri. Beberapa waktu lalu aku mendapat kesempatan untuk mencoba beberapa produk dari The Natural Story. Mungkin kalian masih awam dengan brand ini *aku juga pertama kali dengar tentang brand ini waktu dihubungi oleh representativenya hehehe*. The Natural Story menawarkan produk-produk handmade yang mana semuanya menggunakan bahan yang alami sehingga aman bagi kulit kita. Produk yang ditawarkan antara lain adalah Body Soap dan Beebalm.

Kali ini aku akan membahas mengenai Beebalm. Beebalm ini dibuat dari bahan-bahan alami seperti: Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Beeswax, Natural Essence Oil, dan Vitamin E. Beebalm ini dapat digunakan di seluruh tubuh dan memiliki banyak fungsi antara lain:
  • Melembabkan kulit yang kering dan kasar
  • Melembabkan bibir pecah-pecah
  • Melindungi bibir dari bahan-bahan kimia yang terdapat pada lipstik
  • Mencerahkan bibir yang menghitam
  • Menghaluskan siku, tumit, dan lutut
  • Melembabkan tungkai yang pecah-pecah
  • Mengobati eksim pada kulit  

Kemasan dan Harga~
Beebalm ini dikemas dalam jar / pot plastik kecil tanpa dilengkapi dengan aplikator, sehingga untuk penggunaannya kita harus mencolekkan jari kita ke dalam jar-nya. Pastikan tangan dalam kondisi bersih sebelum memegang balmnya. Ukurannya sangat kecil kalau menurutku, akan tetapi harga yang ditawarkan memang sangat bersahabat. Untuk 5gr Beebalm ini harganya hanya Rp 20.000 , menurutku cukup terjangkau mengingat harga bahan utamanya beeswax cukup mahal di pasaran (sepengetahuanku).



Tekstur dan Fungsi~
Pertama kali aku melihat balm ini di dalam kemasannya, balm ini terlihat seperti krim yang keras. Tetapi saat aku mencoba memegangnya, ternyata aku salah. Teksturnya sangat lembut hampir seperti memegang jelly. Dan juga saat dioleskan di tangan, tekstur yang seperti jelly tersebut terasa meleleh dan bertekstur seperti madu yang kental. Wanginya manis, khas wangi madu dan sedikit lengket setelah diaplikasikan. Perlu menunggu beberapa saat sampai krimnya benar-benar meresap dan tidak menimbulkan rasa lengket.

Aku menggunakan krim ini untuk menghaluskan kulit siku dan lututku yang memang selalu kering dan agak kasar karena memang aku jarang sekali memakai body lotion (dirty little secret~ hehehe). 

Selain itu, aku suka menggunakan krim ini sebagai pengganti lip balmku. Bee balm ini sangat membantu sekali mengatasi bibir pecah-pecah, dan karena wanginya yang manis, jadi tidak terasa memakai lipbalm. Lebih seperti mengoleskan madu murni ke bibir hehehe.

Kesimpulan~ Aku suka sekali dengan produk multifungsi ini. Benar-benar membantu terutama buat kalian yang punya masalah dengan kulit kering. Aku punya tipe kulit wajah yang oily tapi untuk kulit badan cenderung kering sehingga krim ini membantu sekali untuk melembabkan kulitku.

Buat yang ingin mencoba beebalm yang multifungsi ini bisa langsung contact ke

Beauty Treats Indonesia ~ December Box

Hi again girls, finally my final box from Beauty Treats Indonesia (BTI) is here. Like always it comes with a wet outer box. Ever since the rainy season, my box never come with a perfect condition. Luckily the inner box is okay. 




This month, they didn't give any old magazine. Instead of that they give me 2 same booklets from crabtree and evelyn. Don't know why they put 2 same things. Well, maybe they still have many copies so they decide to give 2 for everyone.

Inside the box. Still looks sad and empty.


  • 2 Vial perfumes
  • 2 Sample Sachets
  • 1 Sample in Jar
  • 1 Hair vitamin
  • 1 False Eyelashes

Noticed the leaked product inside my box?



this is the culprit~ I hope they can secure things tightly before put it inside the box. *sigh*

Anyway, this is my last box from BTI, and unfortunately I will not renew my subscription for next month. I've already disappointed with the contents, so I decide to take a break. Maybe later when they already make some improvement with their box. I will try to subs to them again.

Silver Bday!

I'm officially 25 now~ omooo now I feel really old huhuh~ I celebrated my bday on last saturday, and turns out many people celebrate the same bday with me. I saw a lot of post on Instagram that said they had same bday with me. The famous Miyake and Jen from fromheadtotoe are one of them. hehehehe.

I got a lot of birthday wishes from my friends~ thank you~ and also another surprise from ce Mindy, She sent me bunch of clothes and some beauty products *Thanks again cece <3*. I spent my birthday with BF. We went shopping a little and then had dinner at Vitto Benetto~ the place is cozy but the taste of the food isn't really suits my taste. I think La Rucola is better. But the price is cheaper than La Rucola~ Btw, I don't have any birthday cake for this year. hahahaha. Instead of that, I had this yummy nutty nutella crepes as my bday cake~ super yummy~



Got a bday message from my sis on Instagram, and I got teary when I read her caption. She left home (because she need to work in another country) when I was 20, ever since then she never celebrated my birthday until now..hikz..


PS: The penguins are so cuteee <3

Anyway, thank you so much *again* for everyone that left me a bday message. I hope I can be a better person since I already 25 years old. hehehe

One,Two,Three~

Hello ladies~~ actually I don't have any plan to write a new blog post especially something related to beauty. Why? because I feel bored and somehow lost my mood to blog beauty things hahahaha. But, today I decide to blog about random things that happened lately because today's date is a nice date (11.12.13), of course I need to write a blog post.

In case you didn't knew, few weeks ago there was a huge event called black friday (and also cyber monday after that). Black friday is very well known among shopper because most of the online shop have a very great deal for their products. This year black friday is very very very tempting eventhough the currency is quite high for those who lived in Indonesia. But, still I though the deals are quite okay. I managed to snap some items this year from cosmetics, bag, clothes. See, I've been on shopping ban since 2/3 months ago and everything are ruined because of 1 day called black friday wkwkwkwk. I guess I can't say no to discount item~ I mean, can you believe that EM cosmetic had 50% sale on everything??? omooo of course I need to grab at least 1 item from their website.hehehe.. Anyway, I will post my haul post when I receive all my items. I think it will come on January (quite late because Indonesia custom will be very crowded during xmas and new year). 



Last day on November was my 3rd anniversary with BF. Time sure flies very fast huh? Like usual, we had dinner together. This time I tried the famous Go Ju Mong restaurant. It is a korean bbq restaurant. Already opened quite some time at Surabaya but I never tried it before hehehe. Ordered some bulgogi and jajangmyoen (because BF insited to had one and turn out the taste isn't as good as we expected). But luckily the bulgogi and the other foods are taste good. I also love their corn tea as well (don't know what they called the tea, but it taste like corn, so I decided to named it corn tea).



And Hello December~
My (always) favourite month in a year. There are 7 events to celebrate this month. 5 birthdays, 1 Christmas and 1 New Year~ wkwkwkwk so many events~ Now that I wrote about birthday, in case you don't know, my birthday is coming in 3 days~ hihihi

Got a surprise from ce Mindy, I knew she went to Bali last month with her family but I didn't expect that she will give me a little "Oleh-oleh" from Bali.hehehehe Thank you so much cece~ I really love the mango body butter, it smells really nice~


Btw, I watched the new Disney movie last saturday. Frozen is very famous these days. I really love all the songs~ and also Elsa and Anna too.. Oh I just love the movie. Now sing with me~ Do you want to build a snowman?


And also not to forget, the famous Korean drama starring Lee Min Ho and Park Shin Hye. I'm waiting the last 2 episodes. Though I already can predict the end, still I'm curious about the relationship between Kim Tan and Cha Eun Sang~ I also love the soundtrack that called Moment by 2AM's Changmin~ Go listen...it is a very beautiful song!


Now, I will end this post for today before I write more random things hahahaha. Ah, btw again I will be having a short trip to Thailand next month, but I heard the situation isn't really nice now because there are many demonstrans. I hope next month the situation is more calm. 

That's all my random post for today~ Talk to you again soon! Have a nice day!

Review: Maybelline HyperGlossy Liquid Eyeliner

Hello ladies~ feels like long time since I write a new review. Although you read many new reviews on my blog lately, it's not excactly new. Because, sometimes I already made them quite long and put them on draft before I publish it. At this moment, when I write this review, this will become my new review after my 1 month hiatus hehehe. Well, sorry if I make you confuse, just ignore this intro. I always bad with opening and closing. Need to refresh my mind, I guess~


Anyway, I purchased some new Maybelline items last month. It feels like already years since the last time I bought Maybelline product. Since I moved my heart into Korean products, I kinda neglect my first love hahahaha. Maybelline is one of my favourite drugstore brand and I love the products so much! 

Today I will talk about their Hypershine Eyeliner. Maybelline liquid eyeliner is one of my HG eyeliner cause the staying power is super awesome. Now, they have a new range for the liquid eyeliner with many cute color.

I choose navy color because I'm not confident enough to wear colorful eyeliner hahaha. Maybe later I will re-purchase the other colors. The navy color is dark blue - almost black - color. With shiny effect after it completely dry.


The packaging is a super small bottle with super thin brush applicator. Well, Maybelline always comes with tiny packaging when it comes to liquid eyeliner *as far as I know*.

It is waterproof (just don't rub it when it still wet), smudgeproof, and whatever proof you want to hear. Yes, it is awesome! like I've said before, the staying power is great even for those who have monolids like me.


Bottom line~ I always love Maybelline liquid eyeliner. I remember it was the first liquid eyeliner that I used back then. Now that they have many different color of it, I'll make sure to try the other color as well.

Review: The Balm Time Balm Concealer

Hello ladies~ I hope you still remember my post about Physician Formula Concealer. I'm planning to publish this post after I wrote about my PF concealer review but many things happened and mostly because I'm very lazy to took pictures, so this post just greet you now. *sorry*



Today I will post about my another concealer. Like I've said before, I don't use my PF concealer to cover my dark circles because the texture is way to thick for me. So, for my under eyes, I use another concealer from The Balm called Time Balm Concealer. Why I choose this? because this concealer is different with the others.

Let me tell you some short story about this concealer. Usually you will clean your make up before you go to sleep, right? well, you don't need to do that when you use this concealer. This product's tag line is can be use everytime! Day time, night time, and even bed time! Yes, you read it right~ you can use this concealer as an eye cream during bed time!

Well, I'm the type that will clean all my make up before I go to bed no matter how tired I am. So, sorry I don't try to use this concealer during my bed time. I don't really comfortable to apply concealer when I was sleeping eventhough it's claims can be used during bed time.


Anyway, this concealer is a cream type in a jar. The jar, unfortunately is made from plastic and it looks really ugly (consider the price is expensive, I really hope this concealer will come with glass material packaging). It comes with a small puff that I think very useless. The puff is small and thin, not the best quality too. I prefer to use my hand to apply my concealer. One thing that I hate the most from cream concealer is, it tends to dry on its packaging. However, this concealer is different. It looks hard and dry from outside, but when I touch it, It has a creamy texture. I always recommend to use fingers because the warm of our skin can melt the dry concealer. So far, I'm quite love the texture. It is creamy and easy to blends. The coverage is buildable. and I found it is a perfect concealer for under eyes. I really love how it covers my eyebags and evens out my skin around eyes area.


Overall I'm okay with this concealer. It covers well and it also works as an eye cream (for those who don't mind to use this during bed time). 2 in 1 products is always good~ hehehehe. Though the price is quite expensive, I think it's okay to invest to something that will works good on your skin, especially your eyes. 

PS: One of my friend with dry skin said this concealer makes her skin more dry and hard to blends after apply it, so if you have dry skin make sure you apply moisturizer before use this. As for me (oily skin), I don't have any problem with the formula.
