Beauty Wishlist : April 2012

Every once in a while, I like to do "wishlist" blog posts to share which products/items I've been lusting over lately. With all of those so many product releases, I'm practically drowning in desire, so I thought I would share which items I'm eyeing the most! 

Note: All photos used in this post are official promo images, as I do not physically have the products to photograph myself. If you would like to see actual product photos/swatches, a Google image search will give you an even better idea of what they look like! :)

1. Mary-Lou Manizer from The Balm
 I definitely have been eyeing their product for quite a while now! You probably heard about them from their famous Nude Tude Palette, The Bahama Mama Bronzer, Sexy Mama Anti-shine Translucent Powder, or Hot Mama the Blush. But, I feel so desire to have their luminizer (highlighter) called Mary-Lou Manizer. Being a flattering color to a subtle glow to the skin is a must have for me! Yeah, I want it.

2. Lioele Triple The Solution BB Cream SPF30 PA++
 I heard so many good reviews about this. Being a great coverage for oily skin, enough said. I want it. In fact, one of my favourite beauty guru in youtube replacing her Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua Foundation with this BB Cream. woah.

3. Precision Kabuki Airbrushed Effect from Bdellium
 Geez. Actually, their line caught my eyes when I'm looking for a synthetic makeup brush set. And I got distracted when so many raving about Sigma Sigmax Brush being told that it was the best. Recently, I watch Gossmakeupartist raving about this brush as one of his five amazing makeup product that he LOVE! Damn. I already got Sigma. Should I have more? haha. help me puh-leasee >,<"!

4. MAC Chenman Mineralize Eye Shadow Duo 
From the first I saw these, I knew I want it. It is the most gorgeous marble baked colour that I've ever seen. The swatches just made me hype and pumped up. I know, it's crazy. For $20 each, I need to calm myself first. And I just froze my credit card into my freezer. haha jk!

 5. Maybelline Color Tattoo & L'oreal Color Infaillible
By mean of that, I've been wanting to have all of the shades. Crazy? I know. It's my middle name. I just find that all of the color is dangerously divine and vibrant. The quality is also being raved. While Maybelline Color Tattoo has 10 gorgeous shades, L'oreal Color Infaillible has 9 stunning shades ( I believe they have more shades, but this top nine shades is the first released in fall/summer 2011. And then they released more shades in winter/holiday 2011. The color range is 1-27 with various range of colors ) . If I had all of that, I'd post all of the swatches.. in my face. Not kidding. :P

My Top 5 Favourite Youtube Video Tutorial in the Month of March TAG!

Girls, definitely learn from all the beauty gurus in Youtube Video is like a free expensive makeup class. Each different person has their own way to express and gave us a worthy lessons. Off course not all the entire tutorials or lessons could suit us. And I found all of these tutorials excited me the most and I've been liking it in the month of March 2012. Even though some of them were made in ages ages ago. LOL. 

And yes, it is a TAG! and I'm tagging all of YOU! :D

By mean of that, I just thought that it could be more fun to know your personal favourites by making a post respond and let me know by the comment below. hihihi :)))

Shall we start?
Let's begin!

1. NikkieTutorials ( her Youtube chanel --> click me! )
 She is one of my favourite girl on Youtube! Only 17 (SEVENTEEN!) but super talented and fun to watch! All I know that she is originally from Netherland and her mom is the owner of  hetcosmeticahuis. In fact that she is young, not only we can understand and related by her tutorial, but she also gives a lot of tips and tricks to achieve a professional makeup look. Her style definitely edgy, fun, colourful and runway look. But sometimes she does a basic makeup and everyday wearable look. Like what the video below, she teaches us basic foundation routine and how to achieve a perfect glowy skin. Check her out!

2. frmheadtotoe ( her youtube channel --> click me! )
 Jen is a 27 years old Korean-American ( beauty blogger, youtuber ) who is definitely super beautiful and give a lot of great reviews and tutorials. I love watch her "Hits and Misses" too in every month, because she has a lot of recommendation of great products. One of her tutorial that I love the most this month is her St. Patrick's Day : Green Winged Eyeshadow Tutorial ( plus Cherry ). Arghh because of this tutorial I wanted so bad to have Sugarpill eyeshadow in Midori. Check her out! psst... you've been warned! LOL

3. Alba Mayo ( her youtube channel --> click me! )

4. Michelle Phan ( her youtube channel -> click me! )
 Haha.. I love Michelle Phan. I begin to love watching makeup tutorial from youtube because of her. Can't argue, she is talented. Also, her hair bff friend, Daven Mayeda 's tutorial is contagious. And from Michelle, this month I favourited her Rock The Red Lips tutorial. Check her out!

5. Sasaki Asahi ( her youtube channel --> click me! )
 I know Sasaki Asahi long ago when she made a makeup turorial in BALI! I just like her because she is fun and cute. She is former known as a manwomanfilm (her previous youtube channel) for her theatrical, costume performance look and playful makeup tutorial. From her latest makeup tutorial, I enjoyed watching her Bright Spring Makeup ~Lavender Eyes~ this month. Check her out!

Review & Swatches : Aloha V-Line Slim Maker

 I guess I'll be reviewing another Etude House product.. it's from their Aloha line.

" V-Line Slim Maker "
Actually. I kinda distracted. Every time I tried to review this thing, this is what's in my mind..
yeah. those coconut cup booty shakin'.
nevermind. back onto the review, shall we? :)))


What is this?
Etude House Aloha V-Line Slim Maker is a bronzer and highlighter compact. It is stated,"To make the chin line as the true V line, don't forget that there is the V line slim maker to express the skin in slim look!" 
Look at what it promised me :

wtf ?!

However, aside from their "joke", it is supposed to help you achieve a natural looking V-Line Face Shape. The website even states that there is Natural Sugar Fitting Powder as one of it's key ingredients in the powder (which helps to stop the cakey powdery feel on your face).

They have 2 colors of choice for this product, which is :
01. Sun Gold / Wood Brown
02. Sun Pink / Cherry Wood

And the color I chose was 01. Sun Gold / Wood Brown because it was a little lighter and more yellow/warm toned and I thought that it would fit my skin tone more.


As you know, I adore Etude House's or any other Korean makeup product for their cute packaging. And yes again, it is another pretty package that caught my eyes. But none like any other Etude House's packaging, it has some sturdy feel to it ( huge plus! ) and.. it also has a generous size of mirror inside! woohoo! However, continue with what I mean by none like any other Etude House's packaging, usually I would find their clever solution in making a compact and practical piece of makeup. In this product, I won't be able to store their mini size brush elsewhere except to carry it separately.

 Kinda loose the practical purpose of a bronzer and highlighter compact, but you get bothered to store a separate brush.

But.. aside from that, so many good things I would say from this product. Yeap, I like this product! :D  And let me tell you why..
First, it's on an affordable price ( remember, get it from Indonesian multiply market! ) Their counter in mall giving me a heart attack price sometimes. bleh. I got it for IDR 139000rupiahs ( around $13.90 US Dollar ) while in the counter it could be twice as much.. for the same product! -_____-" zzz..
Second, the quality of the product. I wouldn't say you'll be amazed, but I rather say that it is a good product! The powder is finely milled and feel soft, also easy to blend. It looks natural on me. and oh- another thing, it smell sooo good. It does has feminine and floral scents to it. I'm blown away. 


The Bronzer - To me, the bronzer is not crazy pigmented or melted like a butter. It is more like a very soft pressed powder and quite sheer when you swipe it, but definitely a buildable color. Which is a good thing for me, since I tend to just slap it on my face when I need a hint of color on my very pale face. 
The color, Wood Brown shade is a matte oak wood shade or I may say milk chocolate brown with a reddish undertone.  

The highlighter -  Now, this is what I call so pigmented and buttery. The down side is I found it to be more of a fall out into my cheeks, while I'm doing my cheekbones. So what I do is using my hand and slightly dab it into my skin. And that's what I find the best for applying it.
The color, Sun Gold shade is a golden champagne with beige undertones, and a shimmery pearl finish. Sooo beautiful ^____^


Here is a comparison of the brown shade :
1 - MAC Get Away Bronze ( powder blush )
2 - Elf Duo Compact ( the bronzer )
3 - Elf Cool Bronzer ( mixture of the 4 color )
4 - Aloha V-Line Slim Maker ( the bronzer )

Somehow, Aloha V-Line Slim Maker is a mixture of 3 other shade and separate the frost into a highlight. It got slightly orangey undertone and a mixture of milk chocolate and a reddish brown.

My thoughts
Overall, I like this a lot and definitely a keeper to my makeup collection. 
Here is a picture when I applied it a bit more than usual so that my camera doesn't wash out the color and you can see it on my face.

That's it my review.
Let me know what you think!
Good day all!
Smile :)

NOTE: all of the product were purchased by my own money and reviewed by honest thought. It's just my way to give you an opinion in buying product that you considered to purchase. Be a smart buyer! Hope you like my reviews.

Haul + Review & Swatches : Elf (Eyes Lips Face)

I Love Haul. Don't you?
And today I'm really excited to open box my package.
All these are Elf or you may say eyeslipsface that I purchased from dearhoneycosmetic because they're having 10% off!

Yes, please call me Ms. Discount from now on... It's so good to be true :D

  • Kabuki Face Brush
  • Powder Brush ( Studio Line )
  • High Definition Powder
  • Blush in Candid Coral ( Studio Line )
  • Duo Contouring Blush and Bronzing Powder ( Studio Line )

Kabuki Face Brush 

Elf Claims :
Kabuki Face Brush
This Taklon Brush can be used with wet or dry products. Be a professional makeup artist and create a flawless look with this e.l.f. studio brush!
Provides medium to full coverage.
Creates an air brushed finish.
Use to apply a wide range of makeup, like mineral makeup, loose powder, bronzer, blush or highlighter for the skin.

Directions: Dip brush into powder and gently tap off any excess. Gently buff in a circular motion all over the face. Apply additionally in areas if fuller coverage is desired.

This is a one of the softest kabuki that I've ever felt. The bristle is so limp and soft, unlike any other cheap synthetic brush. However, I noticed a couple of thing that I don't like, a slightly fall out ( just for the first touching it though ), uneven cut and.. what surprised me the most is the bristle curled at the root ( It's weird, I know! ) not entirely straight and nice like what I thought.

 Otherwise, so many good thing that I could tell. The size is great ( not too small and not too big for practical reason ), the bristle is nicely packed ( not too dense and not too loose ), and the handle is made of sturdy material ( I thought it's gonna be some kind of cheap plastic :P ).

Powder Brush ( Studio Line )

Elf Claims :
Powder Brush
This Taklon Brush can be used with wet or dry products. Be a professional makeup artist and create a flawless look with this e.l.f. studio brush!
Creates a professionally sculpted look.
Full coverage color.
Use with powder or blush for perfect contouring.

Directions: Dip the brush into powder and then tap off excess. Start near the hairline and work inward as to not over aply the color.

Again, the bristle is so very soft. The same material with the Kabuki Face Brush, but somehow it look more shiny and plasticky because of the black bristle. The size and the lightweight is perfect, the bristle is nicely packed, and the handle is sturdy and nice. And oh.. one thing. My brush is no longer round, it's a bit oval because of the package. And I have no idea, whether it's gonna be round again or not. -__-'

In this picture I compare with stippling brush, to get the image of the size.

High Definition Powder

Elf Claims :
The high definition loose powder creates a "soft focus" effect to the skin
Masks fine lines and imperfections for a radiant complexion.
The incredibly soft and invisible powder is great for on screen and everyday wear.

Directions: The microfine particles are designed to be used with high-definition camera technology or for everyday wear. Apply powder all over the face for a professional and youthful look of perfection.

I've heard so many good reviews about this powder. I'm a big fan of high definition makeup. A really great thing about high definition makeup is they contain light reflectors and other ingredients to give your skin a flawless finish. This is wonderful when you are taking photographs or being in video camera, and it is also great for more mature skins. Basically high definition makeup can make your skin not only look flawless, but younger as well. Let's just hope this powder suit the name! 
* cross finger >,< *

Blush in Candid Coral ( Studio Line )

Elf claims :
The soft sheer texture blends into the skin for a silky finish.
Designed to be worn alone or layered for more depth.
Highlight your complexion with a subtle healthy glow.
Directions: Apply to the apples of the cheeks or any other area you wish to highlight.

I love peachy coral blush and I think it suit me the best. For the first impression, I was really impressed with the pigmentation.. it offered a good amount of colour with little effort. The texture is unlike the Elf Cool Bronzer ( also from Studio Line ) that I already have ( see my swatches of Elf Cool Bronzer here --> click me! ). I found that the Cool Bronzer is too powdery and too much fall out when I applied. This blush, however, is so much smoother in texture and less fall out. It gives a satin finish, couldn't be matte nor frosty finish, but slightly glowing with a golden undertone. I think it would be flattering for anyone with a yellow undertone. 
( like me! :D )
I also like the package. it's sleek, sturdy, and has a little mirror in it. With 4.75g of product, I think I'm good for the next 6 months! :P

Candid coral is a bright peachy coral with a gold undertone. Satin finish.

Duo Contouring Blush and Bronzing Powder ( Studio Line )

Elf claims :
Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder
Create a healthy and natural glow year-round.
The Blush highlights the cheeks to add a flush of color.
The Bronzer accents and contours cheekbones for beautiful definition.

Directions: Brush on the "bronze" to the hollow of the cheeks for definition and dust around the face line to create a healthy glow. Use the "blush" on the apple of the cheeks to create subtle color.

And this set is come with a blush and a bronzer. Both contain a 4g of product each. Packagingwise.. it's twice as big as the single blush and has a generous size of mirror inside the compact. 
The swatches :
( indoor with artificial light )

Now, from the pan, I would say the blush is exactly the same with the Candid Coral Blush.
( indoor with artificial light )
But when I swatched it, you can see some of the difference.

( indoor with artificial light )
While Candid Coral is a bright peachy coral with gold undertone and satin finish, The blush from Duo Compact is slightly a deeper colour and more pink. Although it has a same gold undertone to it, but both had a different finishes. The Blush from Duo Compact has a golden sparkle ( bigger and rare metallic than Candid Coral ), compare those two I would say Candid Coral more of a frosty side.
The bronzer also has a golden sparkle to it. A brown with an orange-y undertone. 

( indoor with artificial light )

My Thoughts

Overall, Elf already did such a great job! I think this is an exceptional price for the amount (and quality) of product you are getting. I'm happy with all I purchased. I couldn't complain much with the majority of good reviews that Elf got and what they had to offer with such a good price. Will I repurchase Elf again? Yes. no doubt. I even wish for they open in Indonesia, soon.

Kabuki Face Brush = IDR. 90000rupiahs = IDR. 82000rupiahs ( around $8.20 US Dollar )
Powder Brush = IDR.80000rupiahs = IDR. 72000rupiahs ( around $7.20 US Dollar )
HD Powder = IDR. 95000rupiahs = IDR. 85500rupiahs ( around $8.55 US Dollar )
Blush in Candid Coral = IDR. 70000rupiahs = IDR. 63000rupiahs ( around $6.30 US Dollar )
Duo Contouring Blush and Bronzing Powder = IDR. 75000rupiahs = IDR. 67500rupiahs ( around $6.75 US Dollar )

That's it my haul.
Let me know what you think!
Good day all!
Smile :)
