Baviphat BB Deep Cleansing Cream Review

Sabtu, Maret 31, 2012

Hi lovelies. How is your weekend? :D Mine is so busy. I am having internship while having holiday here in Medan. :)

So today I wanna share about Baviphat BB Deep Cleansing Cream. I like to try different brand, especially Korean and Japanese brand since they're much cheaper than US brand :p And they're cuter too <3

There is no special reason why I try this cleansing cream. This is the first cleansing cream that I have ever tried. Usually I just use cleansing foam but since I use BB cream now, I need more cleanser ._. And this sounds compromising with its name: BB Deep Cleansing Cream. :3

It's so yellow ya. Haha. Usually I don't really like yellow thing because my fav colour is peachy pink :p Besides this one, Baviphat also has Aloe Cleansing Cream if I'm not mistaken.

Actually, when you open it, you will find white plastic cap to prevent the cream to leak out. But I have thrown it away since I found it not really useful ._.

I want to show you how it works to clean eyeliner. Although I never use this for clean my eye makeup, just to show you is it effective enough as cleansing cream :p

I think I took the product too much ._. 

After massage it several times, finally my hand is clean :D It takes longer time than using eye make up remover so it's better if you use it for all over your face then wipe it off with tissue or water. Then I use cleansing foam after using this :)

It does its job quite good. I think it's just okay, nothing special about it.The scent is quite strong, I'm not good at describing scent so I just can say it's too strong for me, I don't like it --" It comes in 200gr so yeah i don't know how long will it last ._. and in the packaging, most of it written in Korean except the name and the ingredients, so poor me who can read it but can understand it hahaha :p

Will I repurchase it? No.


Baviphat Apple AC Therapy Sleeping Pack Review

Senin, Maret 26, 2012

Today I'm gonna do a review about Baviphat Apple AC Therapy Sleeping Pack \(^0^)/

See how cute the packaging is? :3

When you open it, you can see there is a spatula or a spoon ._.

The texture is quite thick and more like gel type than cream :)

This is one of the most popular sleeping pack from Baviphat, it's said to heal acne or prevent acne. It is recommended to apply it 2-3 times in a week. Just leave it there on your face when you sleep and rinse it off the next day you are wake up.
But after I read some testimonials from this sleeping pack user, I use it everyday as night cream hahaha :p I really love the scent >.<

What I like:
  • The packaging looks the same as the real apple. <3
  • The scent! It's apple scent, I feel so relaxed when smell it. 
  • It absorbs really fast and my face doesn't feel sticky after I apply it.
  • When I wake up the next day, my face doesn't that oily as usual :D
What I dislike:
  • It doesn't heal my acne or prevent it. :(( I believe it reacts different to me and to other people. Maybe it will work for somebody else, but it isn't working for me :')

Etude House

Etude House Eye & Lip Remover Review

Selasa, Maret 20, 2012

Just wanna do short review for this Etude House Eye & Lip Remover. :)

When this remover arrived safely at my house and I looked at it, I was a bit surprised with the colour and the printing on the bottle. The colour is green, not blue like I see on internet or on their store. Besides as you can see from the pic above, the printing has fade away (sorry for my bad vocabulary -,-). I thought was this a fake product I received? -,- But because I don't have any eye remover left, so I decided to just use it, although the colour is different.

Some description from its bottle:

"Gentle, yet highly effective, this double formulated lip & eye remover easily and instantly dissolves all traces of make-up for a soothing and moisturizing effect on the sensitive eye & lip area without any irritation."

Directions for use: Shake well before each use. Apply to eye & lip area using soft cotton or tissue.

Ingredients: water, cyclopentasiloxane, viola tricolor flower/leaf/stem water, iris florentina root extract, decyl glucoside, disodium edta, dipotassium phosphate, lauryl methyl gluceth-10, hydroxypropyldimonium chloride, benzophene-5, benzyl alcohol, sodium chloride, ethylhexylglycerin, potassium phosphate, propylene glycol, peg-40 hydrogenated castor oil, hexylene glycol, phenoxyethanol, fragrance, blue 1 (Cl 42090)


What I like:
          Overall, I agree with its decription. :D

  • It's gentle and won't hurt your eyer or make your eyes feel cloudy or feel like there's something that blocking your vision.
  • It's effective for removing eyeliner, mascara, eyeshadow, and eyebrow! But not instantly yaa, maybe around two or three times rubbing your eyes with cotton pad.
  • The scent is quite pleasant.
  • Cheap price 
What I dislike: none

For me, this is so much better than Maybelline Eye & Lip Remover because maybelline's make my eyes feel hurt. -,-

Rating: 5 out of 5

Will I repurchase: yes! I will buy the larger one (250ml). Etude House just released it maybe two months ago ^^


Tony Moly Backstage Gel Eyeliner #1 Black Review

Senin, Maret 19, 2012

I've heard so many raves about Tony Moly Backstage Gel Eyeliner so I decided to include it in my preorder list  last December. It arrived one month after I ordered it, so I have been using this eyeliner for around 2,5 months and I wanna share my opinion about this gel eyeliner. :)

This is my second gel eyeliner. My first one is Code B from Etude House and it gives me bad impression -,- But since this eyeliner is so popular on the Internet, I wanna give it a try.

As you can see from the above picture, the packaging comes with a brush attached to it. I like this packaging because it is easier if we want to re-apply the eyeliner, with the brush there in the packaging. I like the brush more than using special eyeliner brush, let's say Etude House Oblique Line Brush. I don't know, I just feeling much more easier drawing eyeliner using this brush. It can be lengthen a bit if you like more longer brush.

I draw three lines using the eyeliner and its brush. By using its brush, the eyeliner we draw will be more thicker and I like it. The colour is really black! It's waterproof and smudgeproof too. 

Anyway, this is the close up photo of my eyes using this backstage gel eyeliner. I just draw an ordinary line here. But when I want a more dramatic look like cat eyes, I use this eyeliner too and it's easier than using liquid liner. Besides the staying formula also really really good. It stays there in my eyes more than 8 hours. I barely reapply my upper eyeliner, but sometimes I reapply eyeliner on the lower lash line. :)

Rating: 5 out of 5 :D

Will I repurchase: Definitely yes!

Geo XCK 105 Lens Review

Sabtu, Maret 17, 2012

Today I want to give a review for my first lens ever: Geo XCK 105 (^ω^)

Geo Ultra CK105 (XCK-105)
Diameter: 14.8mm
Water content: 38%
Base curve: 8.6mm
Replacement period: 12 months

I fell in love with this lens before I got the Princess Mimi one. This is just perfect for enlargement effect, and it really look natural on eyes. (/^▽^)/

This is how it looks like without any eye make up. Well actually I used eyeliner in this pic but it was unnoticeable ._. so just pretend that  I didn't have any eye make up in this pic :p It still look natural without any make up, right? :D

In this pic, I didn't use any make up on my face. Look at my eyebrow -_-"

This pic was taken on last October, I just wanna show you how does the lens look like with eye make up on :D

What I like:
  • Looks so natural, maybe people can't tell that I'm wearing lens :p
  • Enlargement effect. It gives you dolly look :3
  • Super comfortable. I have used it either on hot weather or on AC room, and sometimes I used it more than 8 hours a day and it's still okay  (ノ*゜▽゜*)
  • Affordable price
What I dislike: none.

Rating: 5 out of 5

Will I repurchase: No. I will try XCK107 or XCk109 instead :D

Have you tried this lens and what do you think about it? 。◕‿◕。

Face Mist

Skin Food Facial Water Vita-C (Mist) Review

Jumat, Maret 16, 2012

Hollaaa :D It's been a while since my last post. Last Monday, I went back to my hometown Medan to enjoy my holiday here (´∇ノ`*)ノ

So after I have been busy for several days and got nothing to do now, let's read my review about Skin Food Facial Water Vita-C (Mist). 。◕‿◕。

Description from Skin Food's website:
A facial water mist that fills thirsty skin with vital hydrating energy of Vita C complex and Alaska glacier water.             
[Vita C Complex Story] This complex delivers revitalizing hydration with effective ingredients from vitamin C-enriched berries-Rasberry, acai berry, cranberry, and strawberry.             
[Alaska Glacier Water Story] Alaska is on initial source of water covered with over 20,000-year-old glaciers. Alaska glacier water is fresh water at mildly alkaline pH, enriched with oxygen, minerals and ions.
*To Use   Mist over face after washing or whenever skin feels dry. Refrigerate before use to enjoy a cooling skin treatment.   

I bought it long ago, around nine months ago ._. I was quite curious to feel what exactly is facial mist so I bought this to give it a try. There are Vita A, B, and C but I ended up with Vita-C with no special purpose. Vita A is made from pumpkin, carrot, tomato, and apple, while Vita  is made from cabbage, broccoli, celery and asparagus. I was afraid that I will not like Vita A and B scents so yeah finally I bought the Vita C :3

See how much is left after nine months :p

I stopped using it nine months ago because after I have used it for several times, I felt that it's not that important. I was lazy to take it around in my bag because it is quite big and heavy ._. So I just put it in the refrigerator and sometimes when I was dizzy or tired, I took it out from the refrigerator and spray it on my face :) I feel refreshed everytime I have sprayed this “ヽ(´▽`)ノ”

But since my toner have been used up and I don't have any backup toner ._. , I use this mist as toner. I spray it on cotton pad around three to five times and dab it to my face. Finally I will use it till it ends up. Yeay O(≧∇≦)O

My skin type is combination and I just knew around one month ago that this Vita A, B and C products is for dry skin But seems like there is no problem of using it. There is no break out or itchy feelings after using this so I will use it till the last drop :p

What I like:

  • The scent doesn't make me feel dizzy. 
  • Feel refreshed after using it.
  • Can be used as facial mist and toner.
  • It doesn't break me out.
  • Affordable price (around Rp 100.000)
What I dislike: none

Rating: 4 out of 5

Will I repurchase: no.    


Masami Shouko Brush Case Review

Minggu, Maret 11, 2012

Yeay finally I got myself a brush case :D  I've been searching for a while on online shop and I'm quite interested in Sigma brush set. And it is not sold separately from its brushes so you have to buy it in one set. But it's rather expensive so I still confused whether to buy it or not. 

But thanx God when I went to Sogo at Emporium Mall last Wednesday, i saw this brush case from Masami Shouko. The price is cheap compared to Sigma, around Rp 90.000 and there was a discount when I bought  it, so I only paid around Rp 70.000 for this brush case :D 

As you can see, when it is opened, we can part it into two and place our brushes on it. It's up to you how to use it. Maybe you want to put your clean brushes in one side and the other side for the brushes that needed to be clean. Or maybe one side for eye brushes and the other side for face brushes. It's up to you :D
Now I can take my brushes anywhere when I go travelling without having to worry about my brushes condition ^^

Geo Princess Mimi Almond Brown Lens Review

Rabu, Maret 07, 2012

For achieving uljjang or gyaru style, I think most of make up lovers will use color lens. And one of the most well-known brand in Indo and maybe in the world is Geo. :)

Do you know Tsubasa Masukawa? Yes she is the famous model in Japan that produced Dolly Wink and Candy Doll. She used Princess Mimi lens in her dolly wink or candy doll photoshoot. :3

So today I'm gonna review Princess Mimi in Almond Brown. I bought it at Tomato Online Shop with very affordable price compared to other online shops. :D

This is the packaging when I received the package. It's packaged in bubble wrap plastic to make sure that the lens is safe.

After the bubble wrap was opened, I can see the lens box and lens case. The lens case is free every purchase of Tomato Online Shop lens. I got mine in blue colour :)

They came in separated bottle so actually you can ask for different minus for your eyes. I purchased the normal one (no minus). As you can see from the pic, there is a Geo sticker there. If you scatch in the area, the code will shown and you can check whether your lens is original or not. I believe mine is original so I skip this part :p

This is the description from Tomato Online Shop photo album:
Geo Princess Mimi Series XMM 204
Diameter : 15.00mm
Base Curve: 8.70
Water Content: 38%

But what I saw from its bottle, it's written there that the diameter is only 14.5mm not 15mm! I re-read it for two or three times, maybe I read it wrong but sure it's only 14.5mm. The sad thing is I forgot to take the pic of the bottle that show the diameter size :( I tried to compare the size with my Geo XCK105 with the diameter is 14.8mm and it looks bigger than the Princess Mimi. T.T Well I supposed the Princess Mimi lens would be my first 15.00mm lens but seems like it couldn't be it. Maybe Tomato Online Shop should check it again, maybe the description in their photo album is mistaken. Or maybe me that read it wrong? :(

Anyway let's go to the lens review.

Under room light.

Zoom in look

As you can see from under room light pic, the color is so natural. You can't really see the brown colour which make me really like it. I like it when I use lens and people can't see that there's any difference on my eyes, except for the enlargement effect. That's why I prefer not to use colours like violet, pink, green or blue because it will be noticeable that I wear color lens. So black and brown is definitely my choices for now. :)
Only when you see me closely then you can see oh there is a brown colour too, not only black :p

This is the lens in the lens case. On the left side is the front side and on the right side is the back side. Hmm you get what I mean right? ._. Usually we find it hard to see which part is the front side and which part is the back side. But this Princess Mimi lens show that the darker side is the front side and the lighter side is the back side :)
Okay so this is me too wearing Almond Brown on the other day :p
What I like:
  • Nice enlargement effect
  • Very natural, you can't really see the brown colour :)
  • Affordable price (Rp 120.000 at Tomato Online Shop)
  • Comfortable ( I wear it for almost more than 8 hours a day and it still feels like I'm not wearing lens at all :D)
What I dislike:
  • It's not 15mm lens but 14.5mm T.T

Rating: 4,5/5

Will I repurchase: yes for the other colour (maybe the Chocolate one :) )

And girls make sure you check out Tomato Online Shop if you wanna buy lens. They have different promotion for each month with a really affordable price. Also they have a fast response for your purchase and they will sent your lens soon after you have made the payment. :D And for bloggers, they have promotion also. For review you make on the purchasing on their shop, maybe they will send you another free lens. See how nice is that? :D

Have you tried any Princess Mimi lens? What do you think about it? ^^


Ecotools Bamboo 5 Piece Brush Set Review

Selasa, Maret 06, 2012

Do you know about Ecotools brush?  

Description from their website:
Getting gorgeous, going green, and giving back is what we are all about! EcoTools is a brand from Paris Presents Incorporated and a leader in eco-conscious beauty products, most notably known for its incredibly soft cosmetic brushes. We take pride in offering a collection of cosmetic accessories and bath products that feature innovative, earth-friendly materials. In a continued effort to give back, 1% of EcoTools annual sales is donated to 1% For The Planet®, an alliance of businesses committed to leveraging their resources to create a healthier planet.

I was so curious about their brushes for a long time and finally I decided to buy the 5 piece brush set.

Description from its packaging:

This Earth-friendly set shows respect for the planet:
  • Bamboo handle has a low impact on the earths resources as it is from highly sustainable plant.
  • Synthetic Taklon bristles are 100% cruelty free.
  • Sleek ferrule is made from recycled aluminum.
  • Cosmetic bag is made from natural cotton and hemp.
  • Reusable storage pouch.
Mineral powder brush: apply powder or mineral foundation all over face in a circular, buffing motion and work inward towards nose.
Concealer brush: use with liquid or mineral powder concealer for more coverage on blemishes and under eyes.
Eye shading brush: expertly cut to apply and blend powder eye shadows.
Baby kabuki: buff powder over areas that need more coverage.
Cosmetic bag: 55% hemp linen, 45% cotton.

When the first time I saw my brushes when it arrived safely at my house, I was quite shocked with the size because it is smaller than I thought :o I am quite disappointed with the size ._. Then I searched about this brush online and finally know that it is packaged in travel size. Well that's why the price is cheap I think. It costs me around Rp 145.000 (around US$13).

Well I really like these brushes. They are very high quality. They feel so soft on your face and they don't hurt your face even if you use them with extra power hahaha :p They don't shed much too. I have washed them before my first use of them and during the washing time, there's nothing shed at all :o

So if you wanna try new brush, maybe ecotools brush could come to your consideration. Promoting earth-friendly with bamboo handle and recycled aluminium makes it worth to try. They do their job as brushes pretty well too. I'm considering to buy their bronzer brush later if I have some extra money. Hehehe :D

Rating: 4/5 (not full rating because of its travel size)
Repurchase: yes but the other brushes. :)

Have you tried Ecotools brush and what do you think about it? :D

Cyber Colors

Cyber Colors Olive Lip Balm Review

Minggu, Maret 04, 2012

Lip balm. I can't live without lip balm. Hmmm quite dramatic ya? Hahaha :D But it's quite true since I have a dry lip and in its worst condition, sometimes it's chapped. To prevent that from happening, I use lip balm. I have tried many lipbalms untill I found my holy grail lip balm that I'm gonna do the review today: Cyber Colors Lip Balm. \(^0^)/

The first time I tried it, it's in kiwi flavour. But for my second purchase up until now the fourth puchase, I got it in olive flavour. So check it out :)

 This is the ingredients if just in case you want to know. I haven't checked it one by one because i'm too lazy of doing it :p

This is the precaution maybe? ._. Written in two languages: English and Chinese :)
 The tube comes in nice silver colour. Every flavour has their own colour. Kiwi has golden tube, avocado has pink tube, and this olive has silver tube. :)

This is the bottom of the tube. Written there: olive oil, aloe vera, vitamin E. I guess they're good for lip? But why isn't there shea butter? ._. 

This is the lip balm. It looks just like ordinary lipstick right? Simple packaging but still looks nice. :)

This is how my lip looks like after applying the lip balm. Maybe you can't see the difference but I can tell you that it has a sheer gloss after applying to the lip. :)
I am just so in love with this lip balm! 
  • The packaging. It comes in tube, just like lipstick, so it's easier to apply and no worry at all about hygience just like when you use tin lip balm.
  • It heals my lip condition. When my lip is chapped, I apply it overnight and when I wake up, my lip is hetting better. :DD
  • It gives a sheer gloss to lip so even if you don't apply any lipstick or lipgloss, your lip will just look healthy and great.
Rating: 5 out of 5.

Will I repurchase? Definitely yes! :D
