June Haul + FOTD

Sabtu, Juni 30, 2012

Can't believe we have reached the end of June today. Hahaha.. Yeahh although I still think day by day passed so slow, I always want to reach 26th of each month faster because at that date I receive my salary. Hahahaha

As usual, I want to show you my June haul. :3

Holika Holika Dark Circle Stealer Goggle Eye Mask Review

Sabtu, Juni 30, 2012

Description:
This cooling hydro gel mask relieves fatigued tired eyes and reduce dark circles. Whitening complex with floral ingredients brighten and moisturise at the same time for clear, bright eyes.

How to use:
Remove the plastic film from mask and place mask onto eye area. Adjust to fit snugly in place. Remove after 20-30 mins and gently tap eye area to absorb the remaining contents.

I'd been eyeing this eye mask for a long time and finally bought it on last May (you can read my May Haul here). (^0^)/ I really love Holika Holika concept and products because I've tried some of their make up and they work great so I'm curious about their skin care. Are they good too?

The mask comes in a plastic packaging mainly in dark purple colour. I like the picture in the packaging as if the dark circle just go away like dust. Cool right? xD 

Back-side of the packaging. All written in Hangeul and I don't understand so I just see the illustrations there. Why does the mask looks like glasses? LOL. xD

The eye mask is hidden under that white sheet. So I have to take remove that white sheet first then I can take the eye mask out. 


The eye mask is in gel type, I have difficulty when wanna place it to my eye because I have to close my eyes. ._. That's why in the pic above you can see that the mask didn't cover my eye well hahhaa.. Also it's quite difficult to take photo of me using the eye mask when my eyes were closed like that. -,- 

So yeah I used the eye mask for 20 mins with my eyes closed. I tried to relax my mind while listening to Kpop songs. But I couldn't use it longer than 20 mins because I was bored. Hahaha.. Imagine your eyes closed for 20 minutes: what else could you think about or maybe you will fallen asleep when waiting xD

But my eyes felt so refreshed when  and after using it \(´▽`)/. Everyday I'm stuck in front of laptop, I'm sure that my eyes must be so tired ╮(╯_╰")╭ Soon after using it, I could feel the cooling effect. As for the brightening effect, I couldn't see any difference. I believe to reduce dark circle, you can't hope for instant result. It is the same for acne scars as well. So I don't blame the eye mask. I already satisfied with the cooling effect and the moisturizing effect so I won't complain too much :p But I think the size is too big. You can see it covered most of my cheek too. Hahaha.. And for the scent, I think it's the same as their dark secret eye cream and it's also quite similar to one of Lux's bar soap scent. 

What I like:
  • Relieves my tired eyes
  • Nice cooling effect
  • Moisturise my eyes
What I dislike:
  • I have to wait around 20-30 mins and can't do nothing except singing, daydreaming, and bla bla bla :p
  • Couldn't see any difference with my dark circle. 
Will I repurchase? Yes!

Hand Cream

Lioele Carry Me Hand Cream Review

Jumat, Juni 29, 2012


Description from Lioele's website:
Blended Vitamin E and natural fruit extracts, specialized at anti-oxidation, Carry Me Hand Cream lets skin become fresh and healthy. Coconut and blueberry extract greatly enhance water supply. (30ml)

Ingredients (from Blueberry Hand Cream packaging):
Water, Cetearyl Alcohol, Glycerin, Dipropylene Glycol, Mineral Oil, Vaccinium Angustifolium (Blueberry) Fruit Extract, Polyglutamic Acid, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil, Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil, Scutellaria Baicalensis Root Extract, Rhus Javanica Extract, Paeonia Albiflora Root Extract, Ginkgo Biloba Leaf Extract, Sophora Flavescens Root Extract, Prunus Percia (Peach) Leaf Extract, Lonicera Japonica (Honeysuckle) Flower Extract, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, PEG-100 Stearate, Glyceryl Stearate, Sorbitan Stearate, Polysorbate 60, Dimethicone, Cyclopeniasiloxane, Xanthan Gum, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Trlethanolamine, Disodium EDTA, Chlorphenesin, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Fragrance (Parfum), Red 33 (Cl 17200), Blue 1 (Cl 42090).


I bought this from Gmarket when it's on sale (you can buy it here). Two for Rp 39.000, I should try it. Hahhaa.. The shipping is fast, it took around 10 days to arrive. :D

The hand cream comes in a quite small size, perfect for travelling. What makes a difference between coconut and blueberry from the packaging is just the colour. For coconut, it's in hot pink colour while for blueberry, it's in soft pink colour. The cap is similar to water tap, don't you think? :D

When I saw the ingredients list, I was quite surprised to see many extracts from fruits but I'm too lazy to find out each function :p

Can you see the color difference from the pic above? Just click it for better view. Yes (I assume you notice the colour difference :p) , one is milky white and one is purplish white. I didn't notice the colour difference until I wanna took that photo for this review :D Blueberry hand cream is the one with purplish white while coconut is in milky white. The texture is not too thick and not too watery. It's quite different with my other hand cream or body lotion. But it's absorbed fast after I apply it so there's no sticky feeling afterwards which is good. 

They smell exactly like their names: coconut and blueberry. Hahahhaa.. Sometimes I feel a little bit dizzy because of the blueberry scent, it's just too sweet. But now after I use it everyday and feel accustomed with it, I don't feel dizzy anymore \(^0^)/ . I take the blueberry one everyday in my bag while the coconut one left in home and I use it every night. :)

What I like:
  • Travel friendly
  • Nice fragrance
What I dislike:
  • Pricey

Well actually I never have any plan to buy these hand cream. Just because they were on sale and my Face Shop Minipet Hand Cream soon would run out, so I decided to buy them. I think it's pricey for 30ml size. For the moisturizing effect, I think it's just so so. So I will not repurchase Lioele Carry Me Hand Cream anymore. Better find other product that work better with reasonable price and amount ^^

Peripera My Color Lips #20 Pink Beige Review

Rabu, Juni 27, 2012

Have you ever heard about Peripera? Peripera is a Korean cosmetic brand, a sister line of CLIO, created in 2005. Apparently the brand's name comes from Persian mythology where "Peri" is the name of a nymph and "Pera" is some object that makes magic come true. Quite a romantic name, isn't it? This romantic theme is something you can find all through their product designs, which are extremely feminine, with lace elements and lots of pink.

I forgot how did I found out about Peripera but all I know is I must get its product! Yeah as you may already know, I'm such a packaging-whore and when I found out about their lovely packaging, I can't resist it. Hahahah.. I wanna buy Peripera My Color Lips! But it's so hard for me to find online shop that sell this brand. Most of them only sell those brand that most of us already familiar with, like Etude House, Skin Food, Face Shop, etc. (⌣́_⌣̀")  But finally I found seller who sell Peripera's product that is cheaper than other, and again it's from Gmarket. Hahahhaa.. I really love Gmarket right now :p (you can find the product here)

At first I was confused which colour should I choose: no 2, 4, or 20. But finally I choose no 20: Pink Beige since I want nude colour and I thought I will buy other colour later if I have some money :p

Description:
High quality lipstick made to last and leave the lips irresistibly plump and healthy. Smooth moisturized lips left in colors that will enhance the beauty of your lips. Lace-detailed packaging so precious and luxuriously beautiful just like your lips.

1.With just one touch, color so bright & luxurious glides on so smoothly leaves your lips flawless with brilliant colour.
2. Rose petal extracts volumous & moisturizing leaving your lips smooth and irresistibly plump all day long
3. Lovely tube packaging so precious with exquisite lace detail for a beautiful accent just like your lips
4. Beautifully exclusive colors to choose from. There will always be a perfect color for every occasion.




 I think I don't have to say too much about the packaging. You can see it by yourself that it is really lovely. The tube itself comes in a soft pink metallic colour plus this beautiful lace detail, OMG i'm so in love with it x)
The manufacture date: 18.03.11

At the bottom of the tube, there is a peripera word. :3



So that is how it looks like on my lips. I'm so sorry if the lighting in room-light-pics are inconsistent >.< I still need to figure out how to take photo of before-after in a better way :) Back to the pic, I just applied one layer and you can see it's pigmented enough. I think the colour in my lips shows up lighter than the colour in tube. It glides smoothly on my lips and I don't feel any dryness or discomfort when using this lipstick. As with other lipstick, the staying power is just so so. It will disappear after you eat or drink. It has a nice rose scent that will fade away after a few seconds of application.

It is my holy grail lipstick now and I always use it everytime I hang out because the colour is just so pretty xD

What I like:
  • Lovely tube packaging
  • Doesn't make my lips dry
  • Nice rose scent
  • Glides on smoothly on my lips
What I dislike:
  • It's a lil bit pricey compare to other Korean brands' lipstick
  • Hard to find in Indonesia
Rating: 4,5 out of 5

Will I repurchase? Yes! Maybe I will but another colours that I have mentioned above :D

Holika Holika Enamel Magic Melomovie Gel Eyeliner #2 Brown Review

Selasa, Juni 26, 2012

I was searching for brown gel eyeliner and found this cute gel eyeliner from Holika Holika. It's in HOT PINK bottle. OMG the colour is so tempting >.< Furthermore there is CN Blue Yonghwa in the picture ♥   So finally I bought it from Gmarket because the price is cheaper compare to other online shop (you can find it here). (^0^)/

Description:
Holika Holika's Melomovie Gel Eyeliner comes in 5 specialize colors to enhance your eyes with the deepest pigmentation. Comes with a build in easy to use eyeliner brush in super cute hot pink bottle. Gel eyeliners are perfect for the cat eye look. Gel eyeliners are designed to last all day without color fade. If you are looking for something that can last all day, gel eyeliner is the best choice. 

  • Glossy and moist (silk protein & pearl powder)
  • Everlasting (silicon film former makes a perfect line)
  • Intensive color
Colors: 1. Black 2. Brown 3.Purple 4.Bronze 5.Pink


I think the concept is different from Holika Holika's usual style. As I know, Holika Holika's concept related to witch, magic, cat, something like that. But this? It looks vintage, the girl look like 60s style girl and crying? Maybe it wants to tell us that enamel magic melomovie line is waterproof (?) However I still prefer their witch themes. 

No. 2 Melo Brown


I took the photos in two different days so you may see that they have different backgrounds with the pics above :p 
See see see the hot pink bottle? Kyaaaa it's so cute (at least for me (≧∇≦) ) The product title is printed in silver colour so it's still readable in pink background. The gel eyeliner comes in a pink bottle with a pointy tip. The brush is hidden inside the top so it's quite efficient to take travelling as we don't need to bring separate eyeliner brush.


I like how the brush can be connected to the top compartment to make the handle longer. I don't like short handle because it's difficult to draw eyeline. But with this kind of brush, it's perfect. You can choose whether you want to use it with short handle or want a longer handle, just connect them :D


Manufacture date: 110428. It's best to use 1 year after opening.

Close-up look of the brush. I think the brush is okay, it is soft and I can draw a thin line with it. But I just use it when I do re-touch because sometimes I tend to forget to clean it ._. 

Soon after I have opened it, I realized it's shimmery! Щ(ºДºЩ) Actually I want a matte brown gel eyeliner but I got the shimmery one T.T I wonder why most of Korean eyeliners are shimmery -,-


Swatches on my hand. The right side one is just one swipe and with just one swipe, I think the color is not pigmented enough. But after a few swipes, you can see that the colour is quite good, dark brown with shimmery.

After done with the swatches and left it untouched for a few minutes, I was thinking of taking photo of it after I rub it hard. But surprisingly it doesn't smudge at all. WOW! \(´▽`)/ It's still the same as the pic above so I cancelled my plan to take the photo of it. 

Next to the waterproof test. I placed my hand under running water from the tap. After that, I touched it and try to rub it again. But again, it's still there~(‘▽’~) (~’▽’)~ I was shocked and happy at the same time. I didn't know that the eyeliner is that smudgeproof and waterproof.


This is how it looks on my eyes after four hours of using it. The line is still visible even after twelve hours (but not in extreme condition, I haven't tried it under rain or crying :p). So the staying power is good. The problem is that sometimes the shimmer or little dots of the eyeliner like to fall under my cheek so I have to make sure to clean those points after I've done with my eye make-up.

What I like:
  • Pink bottle  ♥ 
  • Comes with its own brush that can be connected so the handle is longer
  • Smudgeproof and waterproof
  • The staying power is good although I have to reapply it for my lower lash line.
What I dislike:
  • Shimmery (since I want matte one :( )
Rating: 4,5 out of 5.

Taken with my beloved phone :p (you can read about the lipstick I use here)

Thank you for reading and see you on my next post \(^0^)/

88 Eyeshadow Palette Review and Swatches

Sabtu, Juni 23, 2012


So this is the first palette I ever bought. \(^0^)/ Since I want to learn more about eyeshadow, about how I need to apply it on my monolid eyes, I decided to buy this palette.

This palette is unbranded though. I bought it at Gmarket (you can check it here). I ended up buying this, not CS or BH one, because I read many reviews that say actually all of these palettes are manufactured in China, what makes them difference is just the brand. I don't know if it's true or not but for me, myself, it sounds logical. It's hard to find ready stock CS palettes with reasonable price and I've missed CS palettes sale few times so finally I decided to just buy this one from Gmarket. The shipping is really fast. I never expected that it would arrive at my place before two weeks, but surprisingly it only took 1 week to arrive safely at my home.  xD And I choose one that similar to CS 88 Original Palette :)

This is the list of ingredients in case you wanna know.

It's safely wrapped with bubble wrap. But still the mirror inside is broken :(

The packaging is not matte but glossy. 

When it's opened, you can see that there is a thin plastic to cover the eyeshadows.

Taraaaa.. All of the colours are so pretty (≧∇≦) Some of them are matte, some of them are shimmery. It's pigmented too! But for pale colour like white or beige colour, it's not that pigmented. I have to apply it more than one time. 

Below are the swatches on my hand. Left - right is the colour in the palette from up to down. :)












I swatch it on my hand without using any primer. But some of them are too powdery. So you must be careful when applying it to eyes. Maybe you can place tissue below your eyes to not let the eyeshadow fall down to your cheek or maybe swipe away the powder with Qtip covered with foundation. :)

Overall, I'm satisfied with this palette. Although it contains so many colours that makes me confused of what colour should I choose :p, I think it's a great investment.  You can create so many looks with it, either natural or colourful, all in one palette. Besides the quality is not bad either for unbranded and made-in-china palette. (^O^)/

So I will try to create more looks that suitable for my monolid eyes using this palette. This is my mission from now on *finger-crossed*.  Hope you all find this review useful ^^
