Etude House Wonder Pore Freshner Review

Kamis, Mei 31, 2012





After using it for more than three weeks, I think I can give a proper review now. From Etude House, they claim that Wonder Pore Freshner is 7 in 1 Total Pore Solution:

  1. Maintain ph 4.5 +/- 1
  2. Refine the skin tones
  3. Keep the elasticity of pores
  4. Deep cleanses pores
  5. Minimize appearance of pores
  6. Control a large amount of the sebum
  7. Moisturize inside and outside of skin
And the tagline is: "I'm your wonder woman for Your Pore". Pretty cool right? So is it really that good? Let's see. :)

It's first launched in 500ml size. For me it's too big. How if it doesn't suit my skin? So I didn't purchase it at that time. But when they sell the smaller one: 250ml, finally I can give it a try. But too bad it doesn't come in a pump type like the 500ml one. :( I really want it in a pump type to make it easier for the liquid to come out, but it's okay. :|

What makes me really wanna try this toner is its anti pore-dex complex. Taken from Wikipedia, Demodex folliculorum is a species of face mite that occur on people. These mites are found in the human hair follicles, normally found in greater numbers around the cheeks, nose, eyebrows, eyelashes, and forehead. They could also be found in other parts of the body such as arms, chest, and ears. It is a species of tiny mites that have been thought to contribute to hair loss (though this hypothesis is under debate)and live in our pores and hair follicles. I never knew this before and the thinking of some kind of mite living in my face is kinda disgusting and kinda afraid. Moreover after I search over Internet about this Demodex, hiiyyy.. More and more afraid -,-

So back to the topic :p I used to think that I have an oily skin but actually I think I have a combination skin: dry in cheeks and oily in T-zone area. I don't have problem with this toner, it doesn't break me out. I like the scent, it's not too strong but it smells pleasant. Sorry I'm not good at describing scent :p

For function no 4 and 7, I think it's yes for me. I feel it moisturizes and cleans my face. I use it after washing my face and before using some kind of mask by pour it on cotton pad then tap tap it on my face. My face feels so relieved when and after using it :D As for other functions, like minimizing appearance of pores, control a large amount of the sebum, bla bla bla, I think it needs longer time of usage. You can't expect those kind of things with just so short time period of using it. Not forget to mention, it also can be used as face mist or as mask. :D

What I like:
  • Moisturize my skin
  • Clean my pore pretty well
  • Nice scent
  • Quite a large size with reasonable price
  • Doesn't break me out
What I dislike:
  • No pump like the 500ml one :(
Rating: 4 out of 5

Repurchase? Yes! I want the 500ml one so I can get larger size with pump in it hahaha :p

Kose Cosmagic Sweet Deco Cheek Review

Minggu, Mei 27, 2012


Another cute product review ♥ It's from Kose Cosmagic line: Sweet Deco Cheek. The name itself is really sweet :3 I got mine in Strawberry Pink. The other shade is Peach Orange. I got this from Sasa and you can read my haul here. It's been around three months since I got this product and I still kept it that way just like the pic above because it's too cute >.< But around one week ago I decided to throw away the plactic packaging and kept the other things on my drawer. :)

From Sasa.com:
Kose COSMAGIC Sweet Deco Cheek is composed of 1 colour that has a creamy texture and two colours that have a much more powdery consistency. The creamy texture adheres closely to the skin, which will last long, smoothens pores, and creates natural redness of the skin. The powdery ones provide soft colours. You can tailor the combination to suit yourself perfectly.
It includes a bonbon stick and a brush made of natural hair.



This is the back side of the packaging. Among all the things I got from Sasa, this one is the most expensive one. Hahaha.. And my mom asked me like this:"What kind of blush on is that? With that kind of price?" Well sorry Mom, I can't resist this one :p

This is the brochure (?) inside the packaging and voila when it's opened, you can see the instructions on how to apply the blush. Too bad I can't read Japanese :( So I just pay attention to the images :D

Aaaaaa so pinky >.< The bonbon stick is so cute :3 The lid of the brush is similar to big diamond, so bling bling :D

See the heart shape? <3 It's the cream blush. While below the heart shaped blush is powder blush. Left side is the pink blush with shimmer and right side is super pale pink for highlighting with shimmer too. 

I don't use the cream blush because I don't know how to use it *stupid me* hahaha.. But sometimes I use it before I apply the powder blush :) 
And the blush is SUPER pigmented. I apply it using the bonbon stick because my regular brush on blush can't reach this small side of the blush ._. And yeah when I applied it to cheek by tapping it (I have to be patient with this part), I'm puzzled. Why the colour didn't show up on my cheek? So I keep tapping it again and again and finally I gave up with it and did other things. But when I looked at mirror once again after I had finished all my make up process, I was shocked. My cheek was so pinky at the moment and so shimmery. -,- Hahaha so that's a learning for me. The colour will show up itself later so I don't have to be panicked if my cheek colour is still the same when I apply it :)

So this is the close up look for the bonbon stick. I don't know how to call it so I just use the name from Sasa's decription :p It's fluffy and feel soft when touch it to my face. But the minus point is the fur or whatever you call it, it likes to fall down and stick to my face or my hair :| So I have to make sure that at the end of my make-up routine, there is no fur left in my face.


This is the small brush. For the quality, I think it's ok. But I don't know how to use it. I mean it's too small for blush. So I just use it for highlighting.

Swatches on my hand with natural sun light. 
a. Powder blush
b. Highlighter
c. Cream blush (sorry if you can't see it clearly. I've applied it two or three times but it's still difficult to be seen on camera)

Two pics of mine when using the cute blush. These pics taken around two months ago when my hair was still long :') And I took the pic after using the blush for around 5 or 6 hours :)

It gives me natural fresh look <3


What I like:
  • Super cute packaging (this is the main reason why I bought it xD) ♥
  • Pigmented colour. Make sure you don't take the blush too much. :)
  • Has shimmer on it.
  • Cute bonbon stick :p
  • 3 in 1 blush. 
What I dislike:
  • Hard to find in my country. Maybe I can order it from online shop but the price will be higher than Sasa. I think Sasa is the best place to shop for Japanese brand cosmetics.
  • Pricey for me ._.
  • Have to use it carefully as I said before, it's super pigmented. You don't want to end up looking so bright or so shimmery :p

Have you guys tried this blush? :D

Etude House Dear My Milky Gloss MPK001 Review

Sabtu, Mei 26, 2012

Hello sweetheart! Today I'm back with another lip product review :p It's from Etude House: Dear My Milky Gloss MPK001 Peach Latte. Etude House released its new lip gloss in two type: this milky one and crystal one. Since I want to try gloss that has no glitter in it, I decided to buy the milky peach latte one. :)

Description:
Etude House Dear My Milky Gloss : Lip Gloss with Mild & Lovely 8 colors!
- Plain color without glitter makes lips mild & lovely.
- Less sticky and smooth texture gives natural shine and vitality to lips.

Contents: 4.5gr



MPK001 Peach Latte
MPK002 Raspberry Latte
MPK003 Strawberry Latte
MPP501 Blueberry Latte
MBE101 Chocolate Latte
MBE102 Cafe Latte
MOR201 Mango-Orange Latte
MOR202 Papaya Latte


As usual, Etude House packaging always girly. But compared to the Dear Darling Gloss, I think that Dear My Gloss less cuter. There is no flowery accent in the tube like the Dear Darling Gloss :( This one is much more simple in packaging.

The manufacture date. :)

So this is the sponge applicator. It's not too big and not too long, it takes approriate amount for my lips.

This is how it looks from above. Sorry if it looks orange in here but actually it looks like the swatch on my hand below :)


Swatch on my hand. It's a beautiful pink peach colour. <3

before

after. As you can see from the before and after pic, I think it's not that pigmented. My lip colour is still the same, only look plumper and more glossy. And it has a nice peach scent when I apply it but it will fade away after a few seconds.It tastes nice too :p The staying power is average, just like other lipgloss. It will disappear after few hours or after you eat and drink, so you should reapply it. :)

Close-up look. Sorry for my messy hair, not in the mood to do any styling :p

What I like:
  • Has a nice peach scent. (≧∇≦) Maybe the scent different for each colours? I don't know unless I tried other colour as well :p
  • Many different colours to choose. And all of it look pretty in colour <3
  • Makes my lip looks plumper
  • Glossy look but not over-glossy.
  • Affordable price (around US$7)
  • It doesn't give you that white stickiness around your lip after it fade away. I don't know how to describe it, but sometimes when I use lip products, that white thing is so annoying for me -,-
What I dislike:
  • The packaging is too simple, compared to other Etude House lipgloss. ( ̄へ ̄)
  • Not really pigmented for me.

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Have you tried this new lipgloss from Etude House? ^^

Nyx Round Lipstick : Circe Review and Swatch

Minggu, Mei 13, 2012

Hello girls ^^ Today I'm back with another lipstick review. This time from the famous Nyx Round Lipstick :D
I don't know why I'm addicted with lipstick recently (._."), maybe because I've changed my opinion about lipstick since I tried Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter (you can read it here). Lipstick is not always related with dry lips, that is my new thinking now :p

I try Nyx Round Lipstick because of its affordable price and I can find so many reviews about it in internet. Yup, before decided to buy something, I searched the review first to know whether it's good or not. :) Besides, it's available in 126 shades. o.O Lots of colour to choose and it makes me kinda confused which one should I bought, and I was looking for nude colour (nude is my favourite <3). Echo, Circe, Honey, or Creamy Beige? Finally, I chose Circe :D

From www.nyxcosmetics.com:

NYX Round Lipstick is our classic lipstick for all-year round. The mineral-based emollient formula offers a beautiful velvet texture, saturated color and it resists wear and smudging. It’s your go-to lipstick. From Pure Nude to Pink Lyric to Chic Red, Round Lipstick is available in a jaw-dropping 126 shades.
INGREDIENTS: Bees Wax, Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax, Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla) Wax, Ceresin, Microcrystalline Wax, Polyethylene, Octyldodeanol, Polyisobutene, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Diisostearyl Malate, Polyglyceryl -2 Triisostearate, Isostearyl Isostearate, Bis-Digylceryl Polyacyladipade-2, Tocopheryl Acetate, B.H.A, Fragrance, Mica, Titanium Dioxide, Iron Oxide Red, Iron Oxide Yellow, Iron Oxide Black, D&C Red No.6, D&C Red No.7, D&C Red No.27, FD&C Yellow No.5 Aluminum Lake, FD&C Blue No.1 Aluminum Lake, and D&C Red No.36 MAY CONTAIN: Mica (CI 77019), Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Iron Oxide Red (CI 77491), Iron Oxide Yellow (CI 77492), Iron Oxide Black (CI 77499), D&C Red No.6 (CI 15850), FD&C Blue No.1 Aluminum Lake (CI 42090), D&C Red No.7 (CI 15850), D&C Red No.27 (CI 45410:1), or FD&C Yellow No.5 Aluminum Lake (CI 19140).


It comes with this simple glossy black tube with Nyx logo and "lip smacking fun colors" printed there. Love the heart shapes <3 Besides, we can see the colour of the lipstick from the bottom of the packaging. It's the same as the lipstick colour. :)

At the top of the tube, we can see the name and the code for the lipstick.


The lipstick colour. It's the same as the colour at the bottom of the tube, right? ;)

Swatch on my hand. It looks darker on the tube but actually it doesn't really that dark when I swatched it either on my hand or on my lips.

before and after pic.

before and after pic (close up :p)

What I like:
  • It's super creamy! I was quite surprised when I first tried it because I didn't think that it would be that creamy and smooth. I don't have to feel worried about dry or chapped lips because it's quite moisturized my lips \(^0^)/
  • The colour suits my taste. It's probably my definition of nude colour! ヽ(´∀`)ノ
  • Affordable price (US $4)
  • Great selection of colours. So many colours to choose that will make you feel confused :p
  • Simple yet nice packaging <3
What I dislike:
  • It has quite strong scent. I don't know how to describe it, I'm bad at decribing scents (-_-#) And when I lick it, it tastes like soap. Yuckk (`△´+)
Rating: 4 out of 5.

By the way, I've start working last Thursday (^O^)/ Thanx God, the peak season has ended so I don't have to work overtime. I hope that I will not be too busy so I can still update my blog. :)

Have a nice day everyone! Don't forget to join my giveaway here ^^

Little Make-over for Vika | Cut My Hair

Minggu, Mei 06, 2012

Happy sunday all. How's your weekend? :D

Well, since I've got nothing to do, I've finished watching Love Rain until ep 12 and Rooftop Prince until ep 14, while for Fashion King, I haven't download ep 13 and 14, so I'll just write some things here now :3

Actually this post is about me did makeover to one of my friend while I was in Medan around two weeks ago ._.v Her name is Vika, she is a fashion blogger, you can see her amazing blog here

before make over

after make over

Uhmmm.. I know these 2 photos are different in effects so maybe you can't see any difference with her face before and after make over. So sorry ._. The second photo is taken with Camera 360 Ultimate application, my favourite application in Android phone :D

So yeah, I didn't do her look with too much this and that because she kept saying that she want it to look natural and she never try any make-up before, except for lipgloss and lipbalm. Her face without any makeup on is already so pretty, flawless, unlike mine which has so many acne scars :( So there was no really difficulties when trying to create flawless look for her :p 

I think what makes her look even for more beautiful is after using eyeliner. Her eyes look more hidup, how should I say it in English? hahaha.. Although it's a little bit difficult for me to apply eyeliner to her eyes because she doesn't have monolid eyes like me. When she opened her eyes, because the eyeliner haven't dried, it's smudge here and there. Hahaha.. So I will take that as a learning for me. Because of this, sometimes I think that hey having monolid eyes is not as bad as I think before. Hahaha xD

Products I used:

Face
  • Lioele Secret Pore Rich Balm
  • Lioele Triple Solution BB Cream
  • Etude House Surprise Stick Concealer #2
  • Etude House Lovely Cookie Blusher #1
  • Etude House Aloha V-Line Slim Maker #1 Sun Gold/Wood Brown
Eye
  • Etude House Proof 10 Eye Primer
  • Missha The Style Silky Shadow Duo No.8 Rose Tree
  • Majolica Majorca Perfect Automatic Liner BK 999
  • Innisfree Eco Tear Liner
  • Tony Moly Party Lover Cake Eyebrow #2 Khaki Grey
Lip
  • Face Shop Healing Lip Butter I'm Banana
  • Etude House Wannabe Last Touch #2 Wanna Love
That day me, Vika, and Wenny (her sister) did some camwhoring (our fav parrt xD) since I will leave Medan one week after that day :( Here are some of the photos:

with Wenny :*

with Vika

\

me, myself :3

And last week, one day after came back from Medan, I decided to cut my long hair :( I did it at May May Salon since I bought the voucher from Disdus.com.  


So that is the pic I taken after went home from the mall. After cut my hair, I went to watch movie with my friends then went home. I'm still not getting used to see my short hair now. And it's look really terrible if I don't blow it -,-  I don't really good at blowing hair because I never do it before hahaha -,- I think I will do smoothing for my hair later so my hair will not look like rambut singa ( ̄へ ̄)

That's all for now. Sorry for mumbling too much ( ノД`)

Once again, happy sunday and don't forget to join my giveaway here! \(^0^)/

Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Pore Clay Mask Review

Kamis, Mei 03, 2012

Most of you, or maybe all of you, must have heard about this awesome Jeju Volcanic Pore Clay Mask from Innisfree :D So I will just share short opinion about it :)





This is mine. I have used it for more than six months, twice a week. 
All you need to do is first, wash your face. Then apply toner. After that, spread the clay mask thickly all over your face and leave it for around 30 minutes (now I leave it for one hour :p) and then rinse it off. You will feel the difference on your face :D

When I have break-out, just like the pic above, I use small amount of this mask to cover it and leave it like that and go to sleep. The next morning when I wash it off, I can feel it go away :DD

What I like:
  • My face feel smooth and clean after using it.
  • Removes blackheads.
  • Heal my break-out
What I dislike:
  • Doesn't remove my whiteheads :(
  • Doesn't see any difference with my pores :|
Rating: 5 of 5. I really love this mask! <3

Will I repurchase? Of course!
