Review: Missha Complexion Coordinating BB Cream

Hi all~ today I will write a review about a BB/CC cream from Missha. I can't decide the category for this cream because the name on the packaging stated Complexion Coordinating BB Cream. But the seller put this into CC cream category, so I will call this CC cream. Got this via online shop (Qoo10 - The promotion is already over so maybe the price is different now) for only IDR 99K *very cheap isn't it?* recently I saw this product on the Missha counter at departement store and the price is super expensive (I think it's around IDR 500K). Like always I don't really recommend to shop korean product on the counter because mostly all of them are overprice.





The packaging~
The CC Cream stored in a huge jar packaging with black colour. There is a beautiful flower ornament on the cap of the packaging. To use it, twist to the right the packaging and the product will come out. If you think you twist too many and the products come out too much, you can twist back the packaging and the product will back again inside the jar. I prefer this kind of jar rather than a pump-jar, because with pump-jar we can't take back the excess product so must be careful when pump the product.

Swatch~
The texture is light, rather than cream maybe it will more suitable if I called it lotion. My shade is natural beige.This CC cream has a nice floral scent and it is quite strong. The coverage is medium. It can cover my acne scar quite well. Another benefit, this CC Cream contains high SPF 43 / PA+++




The final result is dewy and the oil control is quite normal for me. I have very oily skin, and I use my oil face paper after 3 hours when I used this CC Cream.


Overall I'm quite happy with this CC cream especially because I got this with cheap price but the quality is good hehehe. I love the packaging (though not really travel friendly because it needs a lot of space due to its fat packaging) and also the packaging looks elegant and make the whole product looks expensive (well, it really quite expensive if you see the real price).

Go Girl!

One of my favourite magazine, Go Girl! celebrated their anniversary last month, so they released special edition. The price is quite expensive but they give many freebies. One of them is a cute owl sweater. I got mine in grey color~ *they also have pink color for this sweater, actually I want the pink one, but can't found it in my near local book store*. Today I will show some FOTD and OOTD with this owlie~

Whenever I see this sweater, I always feel warm. That's why for my FOTD this time I use warm color (brown and gold). here are my EOTD~


And some FOTD! What should I do with my chubby cheek hikz. I'm getting more and more insecure these days because of my fatty face. sigh. I think I need to start my diet soon.



Need to include this picture eventhough my cheek and nose look so big *hikz* because I really love my eyes here~

Pairing my owl sweater with black skirt! Love this combination so much.

Lastly~~~ I was featured on Go! Girl magazine too~ *only a small corner but I'm very excited about it*

Talk to you again soon~

Review: Etude House Oh My Eyeline ~ Black

Hello girls, today I will talk about eyeliner. For eyeliner, my favourite is always the liquid type. I've already tried gel and pencil type but in the end I always come back to liquid. Though many people said gel and pencil are more easy to use than liquid type, I feel more comfortable to use liquid eyeliner. This time I will share with you my current favourite eyeliner from Etude House. This eyeliner is already popular among the girls because the price is quite cheap.


Packaging:
Stored in a small bottle and also comes with brush applicator. I super like the brush because it is soft and easy to use. I can draw a thin line with this brush perfectly. The bottle is quite small but it contains a lot of product. My shade is black so the bottle is also black color with the product name on its packaging.

Swatch:
The color is very black. You need to wait few minutes after it completely dry. This eyeliner is waterproof so no need to worry to wear this under the rain wkwkwkwk. Just don't rub it when it still wet.



I bought this eyeliner for IDR 55.000 and there are 3 different colors for this eyeliner (Black, Brown, Grey). I really want to try the other colors and yes I will buy another one after I finish this eyeliner. Definetely one of my favourite!

Have you tried this eyeliner? What do you think about this?

Meet my Soul Matte(s)!


Being a person with oily skin always made me curious about everything that claims work good for oily skin. Recently I found a perfect combination to make my face stay matte for hours! Now let me introducing you to my soul MATTEs!
  • Palladio Rice Powder



Packaging:
The packaging is a little square container. The quality of the container is also so-so. One thing that I dislike the most is the drawing on top of the packaging. I owned quite many Asian products that have cute and girly packaging, so somehow this product looks ugly for me. It also comes with a puff. Overall the packaging looks cheap for me.'

Price: IDR 65.000

Texture, Shade, and My Opinion:
I choose Natural for this loose powder and turns out it matches my skin tone well. Not too dark but also not too light. The powder is soft and spreads out easily. The coverage is light, usually I will top it again with pressed powder. The price is cheap so does the packaging but the result is really good!

  • Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder

Packaging:
Stored in a plastic packaging with clear glass for the cap. The cap decorated with many huge words, it is quite disturbing for me, though I still can see the color from outside. It doesn't comes with puff or mirror. The cap is made separately from the bottom packaging so sometimes when I'm in hurry I often forget to close it again hahaha. 

Price: IDR 80.000



Texture, Swatch, and my opinion:
See, because the "full words cap" I completely don't see the beautiful crown emboss on the powder. Too bad right now the beautiful crown already washed away by my brush. The texture isn't powdery and It has a nice coverage. And the claims about "Stay Matte" is really works for me~ yay

  • Palladio Rice Paper


Packaging:
The drawing is same with the rice powder. The box color is beige and it's quite sturdy.

Price: IDR 60.000 definetely the most expensive oil paper I've ever bought.


My Opinion:
The paper is very thick and contains a translucent powder. The texture is soft, if I touch it, I can feel the powder. This is like 2 in 1 product, it isn't only absorbs excess oil but also cover the pores with powders. Usually when I use oil paper, my make up also got removed, but because this paper contains some powder, my make up still there even when I try to remove the excess oil. And also, I realize the quality of the powder is the same with the rice powder quality. yay!

So, here is my beauty routine: I used loose powder after my foundation then add more coverage with the pressed powder. It makes my face completely matte and flawless. The staying power for these duo is also very good. My face can stay matte for almost 4 hours and if usually I will use oil control paper after 3 hours, with this combination, I completely don't need the oil paper after 5 hours. The oil paper from palladio is another hit for me. It really helps to cover my pores after does it's job to make my face shine free and stay matte again for the next couple hours.

Having an oily skin too? You maybe want to try these products and fell in love like me~

Review: Canmake Shading Powder, Cheek Gradation and Gradation Wink

Hello girls, how are you doing? I'm a little bored with my works now, so I decide to make another review post hehehehe. I hope you're not bored with review. I'll try to mixed my blog's content with tips and trick and FOTD post. Later I also want to make more tutorial posts so there are some variations on my blog. Today I will share about Japan Cosmetic.

The brand that I will talk about today is Canmake. I'm sure you already aware about this brand because it's very popular. Canmake is a Japan drugstore brand and it has a good quality. I owned 3 Canmake products: Canmake Shading Powder, Canmake Gradation Wink, Canmake Gradation Blush.
  • Canmake Shading Powder

I bought this when the last time I visited Hongkong. Actually I only want to bought the blush but then I saw this shading powder alone beside the blush (this is the last stock), so I decided to grab it too along with my blush. My color is a soft light brown and because I have a fair skin, I think this color suits with my skin tone. It isn't too dark and the color is buildable.

About The Product
Creates a soft-focus effect that beautifully highlights the shadows of the lines of the face. Contains a soft-focus agent that uses the diffuse reflection of light to create pore-less complexion that won't become dull easily. Comes with a flat brush that is easy to use on the lines of your face and convenient to carry in your make up bag.



Packaging
The packaging is made from plastic. It is simple and somehow looks cheap for me. The powder is embossed with a grid style so it looks like a chocolate bar. Mine is already fade because I've already used it for some time.


Texture and Swatch
This powder is matte without any hint of shimmer.

Price
I forgot about the excact price, I think it is around IDR 100.000. I bought it directly from Sasa Hongkong, so the price is more cheap than local online shop. The normal price is 680 Yen.

Conclusion
The powder is soft and buildable however the staying power is just so-so, nothing special for me. Also because I choose the light color, somehow it doesn't really visible on my skin wkwkwk (though I also don't want a dark brown lines on my cheek / nose too). The brush is quite good, it is soft and the size is really perfect to give shadow on my nose bridge. Overall, quite like it~ and I'm planning to buy the other color.

  • Canmake Cheek Gradation



Bought this along with my shading powder. I've been put this cute blusher in my wishlist since long time ago~ finally I have one hehehehe.

About The Product
Create a sense of depth with a combination of 4 colors. Use strong color for cheeks, light color for highlights. Freely and easily mix all the 4 colors. A satin sheen for glowing cheeks with shiny pearl.

Packaging
The packaging is similar with the shading powder's packaging. Made from plastic and looks cheap. But, I prefer this one than the shading powder. Why? because I love the color combination hahaha. Both packaging offer a "sneek-peek" because you can easily see the color from outside.





Texture and Swatch
The texture is not powdery and the color is pigmented.  It contains shimmer and you can use the color number 1 and 2 as blush, and color number 3 and 4 as highlighter.

Price
Again, please excuse my lame memory. I completely forgot the price, but I'm sure it is below IDR 150.000 but it is more expensive than the shading powder. Well maybe around IDR 140.000. The normal price is 800 Yen.

Conclusion
I love the combination of the colors. I usually mix all the color and use it only for blush. The shimmer also very acceptable. Staying power is okay and it has pigmented color. It also comes with a same brush like the shading powder. The shape and quality is the same, but this brush has stars ornaments on the handle while the shading powder's brush is simply plain white color. This is my favourite product from all my canmake products.


  • Canmake Gradation Wink






This is my first Canmake product ever. Bought it last year from local online shop.

About The Product
A combination of three must-have shades for the perfect color gradation. The moist powder containing squalane clings to your lids, making the color last longer! It won't won't dull, either! Features a soft texture like satin, pearl particles for luster and twinkling lame particles. For an elegant and beautiful finish.

Packaging
From all my canmake products, this one win for the terms of cute packaging. It also comes with plastic and see-through packaging. But.... the eyeshadow also has another decoration. Well, I'm not really sure how to called it.. Maybe fake bling bling? hahahaha. I really love the decoration, it makes the eyeshadow looks more shiny and cute. I wish the can make the same packaging for the blusher.



Texture and Swatch
The texture isn't powdery and quite creamy. Too bad it isn't really pigmented (Me too not hope too much from Asian eyeshadow, which usually have natural color). It has a nice shimmer, not to much but still visible on my eyes.

Price
Around IDR 130.000 - IDR 140.000 the price is quite expensive because I bought it from local online shop. Normal price is 520 Yen.

Conclusion
Not my favourite eyeshadow but I can't say no to its cute packaging hahahaha. It also really help for a beginner like me. You can see, the colors are divide from light color to dark color (from top to bottom). According to the information on the back of the packaging, you can use your fingertip to apply this eyeshadow to create a beautiful gradient eyes without waste too much time.


  • Bottom Line
Asian brands sure have cute packaging and various color selections for their make up. I also always love how they named their product hehehehe. I think Canmake is a good start for me, now I want to try their famous cream cheek too~ Maybe later when I have chance, I will buy it ^^
