❀✿❀ [ Event ] Garnier New Product Launch : Sakura White ❀✿❀

Hi bubblies!
How's your day?
Hope you're doing magical! :D

Well, as magic as I step into an event that I was invited from the other day.
It is the launch of the new series from Garnier Skin Naturals :
"Sakura White"

 with a Japan theme decoration to welcome us.

and a mellow ambience of purplish pink lighting on the inside.
where there will be a little chit chat - talk show about the product info in the middle of the room.

The advertising beauty banner already says a little bit from the product offering.
"If you wanna get a radiant pinkish complexion that will make you look fresh and had -shy shy cat- happily rosey flush in the cheeks, try this product!" well.. said by me. not by the official advertisement itself, of course! lol.

And here you go!
They launch 5 variants types of product in this range :
Garnier Sakura White Foam 
Garnier  Sakura White Pinkish Whitening Cream with SPF 21/PA++
Garnier Sakura White Pinkish Whitening Cream with UVA/UVB
Garnier Sakura White Night Restore
Garnier Sakura White Mask

In this Garnier Skincare Sakura White series, the ingredients is infused with Japanese Sakura extract, because it is believed as the key ingredients to create pinkish radiant skin that reflects youth and liveliness!
Just like a beautiful Japanese girl, right? ^^

The beautiful flower itself is also known to contain anti-oxidant molecules. It is rich in whitening actives that are clinically proven to significantly inhibit melanin production, reduce roughness and soothe the skin with its anti-inflammatory actions.

Not just that, another infused vitamins are also added, which is B3 and CG to deeply nourish as it brightens.
 At the talk show also said that, this range is Garnier's newest revolution formula that could brighten your skin complexion up to 60% in just 4weeks. Also dermatologically tested, and suitable for sensitive skin.

 To me personally, I loove the smell! Delightful! (o´ω`o)ノ
I recommend you to try their Sakura White Foam ( the cleanser ) & Garnier Sakura White Mask ( the sheet mask ) as it is my fave from the whole range! But of course if you want a maximum result, try all the 5 variants and see the difference for yourself. ^^

That's it my Event Report this time.
Thankyou Garnier team for inviting me ^_^

Have a great day everyone!

✿❀ Review : V 10 Plus ❀✿

Hi bubblies!
How's your day?
Hope you're doing okay. hmmm nahh. that's not right.
Hope you're doing FABULOUS! << yup. that's my right way to say hello! ^0^

Long time no review about skin related post, huh?
How about I redeem myself now?

Around this past 2 weeks I've been trying this - Water Based Peeling - called 
"V 10 Plus"
because they kindly sent it to me for a review. Yup, although they sent this to me, but these are all my own personal thoughts & opinion. 100% my honest review ^^

Their introduction :

Water Based Peeling

Terbuat dari Ekstrak Beras dan Rumput Laut. Efektif Mengangkat Sel-Sel Kulit Mati dan Membuat Wajah Cerah Seketika.

Setelah berhasil di berbagai negara di Asia dan Eropa, kini Water Based Peeling hadir di Indonesia. Water Based Peeling juga mendapatkan penghargaan dari Cosmopolitan Beauty Awards di Finlandia pada tahun 2013. Water Based Peeling ini juga menjadi produk perawatan kulit resmi ajang Miss Singapura 2013.

And this what were they send to me..

it is in form of a map, where the inside is filled with 10 sachets of the product.

Each sachet's close up & info product :

Each sachet meant to be used once, so I have a good 5weeks to used all this up because I use peeling based cleanser every twice a week.

The texture is watery. Duh. Obviously! ^0^ Felt so light on the skin and kinda refreshing.

It says that I only need to wait 5seconds after spread this to my face, and begin to massage them gently and immediately see all of my dead skin cell rub off.

Well, it's true! :D
And I was kinda amazed! *0*

( When I already face and dry my face with my usual cleanser product, using this peeling really taking the "cleanness" level is even more pump! )

And here it is the advertising thingy said it again :

Water Based Peeling Vs. Chemical Peeling

Apa perbedaan Water Based Peeling dengan Chemical Peeling?

Water Based Peeling terbuat dari Esktrak Beras dan Rumput Laut yang Efektif Mengangkat Sel Kulit Mati dan Membuat Wajah Cerah Seketika.
Water Based Peeling ini juga sudah menjadi produk perawatan kulit resmi untuk Ajang Miss Singapura 2013.
Water Based Peeling, tidak mengandung: AHA: komponen yang mengadung rantai hidroksi di posisi alfa. Dalam penggunaan jangka panjang AHA membuat kita lebih rentan terhadap bahaya sinar UV. AHA juga dapat menyebabkan kulit kita menjadi sensitif terhadap sinar matahari, jadi lebih gampang terbakar.

GLICOLIC ACID / ASAM GLIKOLAT: Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) yang digunakan dalam banyak produk untuk kulit berminyak.
Bahaya menggunakan Asam Glikolat adalah Meningkatkan risiko kulit terbakar, Iritasi kulit, dan Mengubah Warna Kulit.

BHA: Asam salisilat yang bisa merawat kulit berminyak dengan membuka pori-pori yang tersumbat dan menetralkan bakteri.
Bahaya penggunaan BHA adalah kulit kering, iritasi kulit, sakit kepala, napas cepat, telinga berdengung.

TCA: banyak digunakan dalam chemical peeling untuk pengelupasan tahap medium.Untuk efek samping penggunaan TCA kulit wajah sedikit bengkak, terutama pada awal pemakaian, kulit menjadi kering, dan dapat menyebabkan luka bakar.

Phenol: zat kimiawi yang paling keras digunakan dalam pengelupasan pada tahap dalam.Efek samping penggunaan Phenol adalah pembakaran kimiawi pada kulit yang terbuka.

Jadi terbayang dong, bagaimana nantinya kulit wajah kita jika memakai Chemical Peeling dalam jangka waktu panjang? Kenali kandungan yang ada di dalam produk perawatan kulitmu dan jangan sampai salah pilih ya! :)

 Okeh, here it is my Overall Thoughts :

 Why sachet?
At first I was like, is it what they give it to me? A sample size? haha. okey that's kind of rude of me thinking like that! >,<" Well, I guess I was grown to like this kind of packaging in the end. Moreover, after use this I can throw this away for each sachet ( less clutter, less stress, much cleaner space! ) or even great to be packed when I get travel. And each product is still new when I didn't get a chance to finish it.

Why is this interesting to try?
I've heard soo many good thing about water based peeling. 
*again. courtesy from the advertising brochure*

Is it work?
hmm.. although it says clearly "peeling", but at the back of my head since I first I tried this and see the result, I always thought it is just a really really good cleanser. I mean it cleanse, without the feeling of stripping off layer from my skin, so so gentle. and I still can feel my face moisture without feeling dry afterwards ( most of my peeling products do that! ), and my face just feel supple & squicky clean!

BUT, I don't quite sure about the "take off dead skin cell power" that rub off from my skin that easily and entirely. You see, when I put the product at my hand for quite some time in the air, the molecules also transform into a flacky that looks like a dead skin cell too. (´ε` ;)"


 WELL, final words from me : that I really really enjoy how it feels to clean my face. Squicky clean and brighten up my complexion! 
But that's just about it.


I guess that's it my review.
Have you tried this product?
Would love to hear from you too!

Have a great day everyone!

Review + Swatches : Joey Healy Luxe Brow Powder & Brow Structure Clear Set

Hi bubblies!
How's your day?
Hope you all have a good good oh so good day!
\ (。◕‿◕。) / wii~~

 Well, being a "Brow Expert" is indeed my job. That's why, trying out a new brow product is another excitement that I created just to level up my work. Just like a fresh new toy to be playing around for me! haha. :D

And this time I'll be reviewing product from a brand name Joey Healy.
More info just check him out, ladies! ^.* >> @joeyhealybrows

 Mmkeh. Just let's go unto the review, shall we? ^^


Joey Healy Luxe Brow Powder

Just like a luxurious items, this is packaged oh so nicely ( sturdy, plastic packaging ) and inside a leather-feel pocket.

I got mine in the shade called "Tobacco"
and you'll get a nice amount of 15oz / 4gr of product.

The color is a rich dark cocoa color with a greyish brick red undertone color.
More that I can see, this shade is one of the neutral. not too red, not too grey ( among from 3 another shades they provide ) & just nice in between, so I can use it universal to any of my client's skintone.

The pigmentation? Oh I'm amazed.
Just look at the picture when I just gently touch my finger unto it!
♥ The texture felt so buttery like a spongecake.
  Minimal chalkiness too, means minimal fall out!
♥ Blend & stick nicely to the skin >> I believe it will make it stay long too.

 This is the swatches on my hand.
Left : when I just swipe it once.
Right : when I swipe it 2-3 times and blend it to the skin.

Overall thought for this product :
 This is a really really good high pigmented brow powder product.
When it comes to a brow product, you know. highly pigmented eyebrow color could be your heaven or your disaster.
To me, this is one of a brow product that you have to get use to it. If you already master it, you can even create from a sharp bold brows into a natural looking soft baby brows. Just play on the blend technique and the way you applying it.
And of course, unto the next concern about this product in my opinion. This doesn't come with a brush. So, finding the right tool to pair with this baby is another heaven that I still need to seek.

Above all the rave that I've mentioned, I found kinda bit of a cons as well.
This powder could be a challenging if you have an oily skin or just a wet surface skin, the powder would blend harder and hard to get removed. 
Usually, I would make the entire skin around the eyebrow area covered with a powder first ( remember : powder will be easier to be blend with another powder ) or maybe my favorite is with a base eyeshadow : mac soft ochre paint pot >> PLUS it's a primer. it will make it even last longer too.

Yes, once again. my tips that you cover all your entire eyebrow and around it with a powder first. to make it blend nicer and enhance the true color even more.

 Joey Healy Brow Structure Clear Set

What can I say, I need this.
This is like a clear brow usual mascara. Just like a hair gel or a hairspray to keep the wild hair stay still. In my work, I always always keep the volume of your natural hair eyebrow with the most minimalist trimming process. Which I believe, your length of eyebrow hair function as a cover the next sparse of your overall eyebrow. However, you still need this baby to do that work!

Again to me, the packaging is another hit. 
The bottle is quite heavy, but I believe it is a good material as a structure to keep the product nice and safe.

 This is a nice leather-feel pocket as the cover they given too.

 The wand is huge for an eyebrow to be honest!
It is the size of a normal mascara wand!
 But in my defense, I like it. It pick up the product in a nice amount as what I needed too.

 Overall thought for this product :
Have you ever wear a hair gel? Same concept with this.
It keep the hair sleek, stay still, neat. But in the end of the day it may weight the entire hair down if you have such an intense outdoor activity, I would say. But for a normal busy activity, not too much sweat, or non-military activity, etc. haha. Don't worry, you'll fine! and your eyebrow is gonna still looking fabulous by the end of your day.

So this is the product applied to my clients the other day.
I love the result! as it still gives a nice definition and looking natural as your hair color.

✿❀ Makeover Cosmetics Review ❀✿

Hi bubblies!
How's your day?
Ah.. hope it's always magical & marvelous ya! ^0^

It's been a while that I made a blog post review.
And longgg awaited, especially for this one for me to make! haha. 
This are all the items that I got a chance to play with, when it comes to MAKEOVER Cosmetics brand. 

First of all, Yes. This is our local Indonesian cosmetics product
Although.. I might say, it kinda loses the "big picture" from our culture  ( means : our ethnicity & exoticism image,  like Sariayu or PAC. the other top famous cosmetics brand in Indonesia ) in their themes and vision, << MAKEOVER is more like a dreamy-quirky-feminine-fun-European style of beauty >>, but I believe the purpose of this brand is also to make any kind of Indonesian women been beautified and prettified with their stuff as well.

 Well.. who doesn't love that idea, right??



These are all the goodies that I've got and been collecting. Since I won my very first IBB MUC ( Indonesia Beauty Blogger Makeup Challenge ).

related link you might want to read as well :
❧❦ Makeup Look : My Kind of Rose De La France by MAKEOVER ❦❧

So, without further a due, these are my thoughts of each type of products from them.
I'm gonna cover them in 3 big subs :
{ EYES }
( Trivia Eyeshadow, Powder Eyeshadow, Eyeliner Pencil, Liquid Eyeliner )
{ LIPS }
 ( Ultra Shine Lipstick, Lip Liner Pencil, Creamy Lipgloss & Liquid Lip Color )
( Ultra Cover Liq. Matt Foundation, Camouflage Cream Face Concealer, Perfect Cover Two Way Cake, Blush On )

*haha.. you might want to grab some popcorn while reading this oh so long post, ladies!*
:D :D :D

{ EYES }
Trivia Eyeshadow
 For this trio color pressed powder eyeshadow, I got 3 that I can show you full swatches. Indian Summer is part of their previous collection which is "Rose De La France", while Enchanting Nude Spell & Magical Fairy Tale is from their newest collection for Spring/Summer 2014 Collection called "Le Secret Fantaisie".
  •  Great pigmentation.
  • Buttery smooth in texture, and spread nicely. Make them easily to blend as well.
  • But they rather chalky and has some fall out too if you pick up too much of the powder, especially the matte one. So, pick up the color sparingly. Build the color little by little to intensify the color. ( Of course, with the help of a sticky base or a good primer solve the problem too ^^ )
  • Some of the finishes are mostly shimmery-satiny finish in every quad. You will rarely get a matte, but exception for Enchanting Nude Spell. You'll get 2 beautiful matte of milky and chocolaty color there.
  • They lean on to create a dreamy feminine and sophisticated color. So all I can judge from the collection that I got is, it's mostly warm, settle color ( which I believe suit yellowish Asian skintone color better ), but lack of strong, cool, or even acidic color to stand out more. >> Well, I believe that's only my personal taste in order for me to be able to create a crazy eye makeup as my usual hobby, yes?! ^0^ lol.

Powder Eyeshadow
This are pigments that I believe so much way you can play with and just be creative. I got Rockin' Blue and Gold. They both have different finishes somehow. While Rockin' Blue is leaning towards satiny and foiled finish, Gold is more like a crashed glitter. Both are finely milled in texture.
  Of course playing with loose pigments like this could be challenging. Tricky to apply, could get all over the place, you deal with fall out definitely ( if you using it alone ). And they don't have a good staying power to stay put on the skin. >> Sticky Base, Primer, Mac Fix+ will be your BFF! 
 But so much more I can say, pigments are a very versatile and multifunctional items that every Makeup Artist or even someone who loves playing with makeup should own. :)

Eyeliner Pencil
 This? ugh. may-zing.
 haha.. I'll just let you know straight to the point! :P
  •  Awesome pigmentation. Intense color.
  • Glides on literally like butter.
  • Creamy in texture.
  • Great staying power as well if it's already set on the skin. As long as you don't rub them purposely, it is smudge proof and waterproof.
  • Could be use as a base color eyeshadow and you can smudge them before it sets.
  • But, the weak point is : it's too fragile. Break easily because it's too soft.
  • Sharpening this baby could waste a product, and this thing need to be sharpen every time you use it. Jadinya boros. Cepet abis. I ran out of this pencils pretty quickly. >,<"

Liquid Eyeliner
Okey, this thing I just got recently.
  • It gives a glossy finish as you can see in the picture. Not completely matte. You'll see like a gloss on top of it if you swatch it more than 2-3 times.
  • You can build the color, intensify the blackness as you want.
  • Even though it's a stiff brush, you can create a thin or thick line with it.
  • Good staying power! But it's the type of a hardened liquid that when it's already set, it could cracked.
  • Surprisingly, even though it last long on my eyelid, removing this is pretty easy ( wait around 30sec until the eyeliner dissolved with a cotton ball filled with a makeup remover, then swipe it gently ) So you don't need to tug on your delicate eyes too much. which is good.

{ LIPS }
 Ultra Shine Lipstick
 I got 3 gorgeous gorgeous color that kinda excites me. 02 Brunet Pink is a nude peachy pink color, 13 Everlasting Kiss is more like a nude browny pink color, and 03 Artful Amethys is a soft fuschia color.
  • They are quite opaque when delivering the color, mostly have a shine finish on the lips.
  • Felt moisturizing.
  • Buttery smooth in texture.
  • Doesn't move to the outer rim that much, stick nicely on the lips.
  • Staying power is very typical for a lipstick.

Lip Liner Pencil
 This almost felt the same texture, staying power, etc. like the pencil eyeliner.
The color is perfect for a nude lipstick.

 Creamy Lipgloss & Liquid Lip Color
The creamy lipgloss felt so moisturizing to be honest. Just give the lips some life, especially to my driest lips. lol. Buttery smooth in texture and a good gloss on top of nude lipstick color.

Well, hey-llo to the Liquid Lip Color!
I kinda amaze that this product actually has a good pigmentation. You can wear it alone, but this product also good to intensify any lip color! Not too sticky, not too liquidy in texture... Yup, I kinda like this stuff! 
Great job, Makeover! <3

Ultra Cover Liq. Matt Foundation
It claims : "with soft focus agent, this foundation will gently deliver natural coverage while helps blurring black spots, fine lines and wrinkles."
  •   This foundation deliver a matte finish. clearly it said.
  • Gives a medium to heavy pigmentation. Medium coverage. ( Means : even out skin tone or even cover hyper pigmentation, but when it comes to a blemishes, you need more dab of a concealer ).
  • Great range of colors!! <3 You can see & click my previous post link above!
  • Oil control is so so for me. I'm super oily, I need to blot in every 3 hours. And even though it already matte, I still need powder to set everything liquid on my skin. to make it last longer too.
  • Staying power is good. Last the entire day if you don't do any extreme outdoor activity. ^0^
  • You'll definitely feel you are wearing foundation on your skin. Quite thick, that's why I can see crack on my laugh lines and fine lines in the end of the day. 
  • TIPS : A good technique of application ( using flat top buffing brush >> sigma f80 is my fave! ) and a good primer or a base is another way to enhance the performance of this foundie too! ^__^

Camouflage Cream Face Concealer

 Oh my. I love this! And been using this concealer in my daily makeup basis. :D :D

  • As you can see, pigmentation is another hit for this concealer!
  • Coverage to my blemishes is medium to be honest.
  • I can use the light beige color as an under eye concealer too! It doesn't settle on my fine lines as as long I prepared them good and set with a finely milled powder.
  • My favorite thing is to use the light beige color as a clean up to my brows and any winged out sharp edges eyeshadows.
  • I can use all of these colors in the palette as my highlight, contour, and color correcting! ( I am more like NC20 ish in MAC foundie, as a guidance ).
  • I can use the color as a sticky base to intensify my eyeshadow color.
  • Feel so smooth, creamy. but still stick nicely on the skin.
  • But to my cons, they should've sold the color separately too. I use the light beight color too much, that would be a waste if I bought the entire palette just to refill a specific color that I want.

Perfect Cover Two Way Cake
 Ugh. this are a heavy duty powder. A powder foundation type of thing.

  • They are smooth and felt velvety on the skin.
  • Great range of colors!
  • You can always play with the coverage & finishes with the right tool. ( Buffing brush, kabuki brush, or sponge for a heavier coverage. a big fluffy face powder brush for a lighter coverage or as a setting powder >> more natural finish ).
  • It claim to be "water-insoluble formula helps maintain skin moistness and prevent skin dehydration." I guess, with a good infused ingredients such as jojoba oil to keep skin moistness & vit. E as a good antioxidant and skin conditioning, will make me believe this powder to perform like that.

Blush On
 Okeh. last one is the blush.
  • This are a highly pigmented blush, too pigmented in fact. So you need a light handed while swiping this across your face. Otherwise, you'll end up looking like Jeng Kelin, I must say.
  • This powder is easily to blend though.
  • You'll get an extra blush brush from the packaging. I won't even bother tbh., just using your usual big fluffy blush brush, would enhance the finish gives to the cheek. and help to sheer them up in case you pick up too much of the product.


 Overall Thoughts
Well, what can I say. I love MAkeover in terms of their quality of a makeup and the price point! To me, this are a treasure if you are just someone who is in the beginning of playing with makeup, or a starter makeup artist. They have a good range of shades and colors in the complexion section. They perform well too.
In each of the items also covered with a sleek, yet sturdy packaging. Look so professional!

❀ Love love!! ❀
