If you can't get your hand on YSL Rosy Coral #dupealert

Hi guys
As promise on my last post today i have a dupe alert for you
Last two month i'd been obsessed with YSL Rosy Coral which more famous as "Cheon Song Yi Lipstick".
That lipstick probably become number one best seller on YSL counter this far cause everytime i try to buy it on the counter it will always out of stock and the SA will tell you to write your name in a super duper long list if they finally stock it again.
So goes the battle if you wanna purchase it from online shop
Lots of online shop sell it very overprice (much more expensive than buying in OTC)
So for you guys who wanna get the same vibe but don't wanna bother with the extra long list, overprice tag and many other reason, here's a dupe for you.
While i was cleaning and reorganizing my lipstick collection, i found an old lipstick of mine.
Not that old, i probably bought it last year xD.
It comes from Maybelline Color Sensational Collection
I was a little bit skeptical about it but the more i swatch it and the more i use it, it really looks quite similar


YSL Rosy Coral cost about Rp 450k (around $36) while the Maybelline one only cost about Rp 80k (around $6)
Quite different price tag right
But it is trully similar?
Well they looks similar in color but the formula is totally different.
As i mention in my previous post, i found YSL Rosy Coral very creamy and glide on smoothly on the lips while the Maybelline one is very creamy too but not as smooth when you glide it on your lips.
The finishes is somehow quite different too.
Eventhough both of this lipstick offer a very creamy formula, but the Maybelline somehow looks 
more glossy on the lips while the YSL have that semi matte finishes.
The color on swatches is quite similar but have slightly different tone

(Left : Maybelline Coral Crush ; Right : YSL Rosy Coral)

As you can see on the picture Maybelline is more like a true coral tone while the YSL has more pink on the coral
But like i said before, on the lips it is not very different at all
Maybelline one gives just the same effect like the YSL, that kinda coral-ly color.

So that is the closest dupe i could find for the YSL Rosy Coral.
What do you think?
Would you still spend more money to get the same lipstick Cheon Song Yi wear or probably you just wanna get the vibe and don't wanna spend a lot of money on a lipstick?
It is all up to you :)
If you have any other dupe for this just comment down below xD

November Favorites

Hi guys
It's been a while since my last post
I've been caught up with other things so i'm very sorry if i can't post more often
Especially in december i probably will post less since i will help my family prepare for my brother wedding.
 
So today i'm gonna show you my november favorites.
This month i don't have many favorite item since i kinda try less new product and i try to reduce using makeup since my skin become more sensitive nowday ><
 
 
First is hair favorite, i've been loving this new hair oil from L'oreal call Extraordinary Oil.
I've been using this for 1 week and totally fall in love with it.
It makes my hair more smoother and shiny without leaving greasy feeling on the end of the hair.
So far so good and totally digging it !
Next is my O.S.T Vitamin C serum.
Well this is not a new product for me but i wanna mention it on this month favorites because i totally amaze with it.
As i told you before this month my skin become more sensitive than usual and i breakout a lot than normally do.
Using this vitamin serum really helps my skin calm down and help reduce the appearance of the acne scar faster than normal so i feel really grateful with this serum.
I've been using it for one year now and it never fail me once !!!
Another favorites of this month is my Chanel Cream Blush in Intonation
SUCH A GORGEOUS CREAM BLUSH FOR SURE
I never thought i would love cream blush ever !!!
This blush is just perfect for that nice corally kinda natural flush on the cheek
Definitely something you have to try if you never love cream blush before like i do xD
 
Last two favorites is lip products.
 
Eventhough i'm not using base makeup like foundation,etc everyday but lippies is a must for me xD
One is a new product i've been trying, the Innisfree Cream Mellow Lipstick in shade no. 4
This lipstick reminds me a lot of my favorite YSL Rouge Volupte Shine.
It's creamy, give a sheer color that feels like using tinted balm and very moisturizing.
One thing that a little different from the YSL is the innisfree one slightly hard to glide on the lip easily ><.
The other one is the Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick in Coral Crush
This is a very dupe of the YSL RPC 52 (Cheon Song Yi Lipstick) !!!
Like seriously, the color is slightly similar to the RPC 52
I will post more detail soon on this as the dupe for RPC 52 xD.
 
So that's all of the favorites product of November that i've been loving and using a lot on November
By the end of the year i will post my yearly favorites products for you guys so just stay reading xD

Review : Morphe Single Eyeshadow

Hi guys
It's been a while since my last post ><
Today i have new thing i wanna review since it's kinda new and i just received it on the mail
It's a single shadow :D
Have you ever heard about MORPHE ???
Well i just knew this brand last month too
It is actually a brand that produce brushes and many other makeup products in very affordable price, i mean like very very CHEAP !!!
I heard about it from Jaclyn Hill Youtube channel and decide to give it a try.
 
It is an american brand so you have to purchase it online
But what truly amaze me is how cheap this shadows are.
It only cost $ 2 for each single pan that size is similar with MAC single shadow ($16) and Makeup Geek one ($5,99)
Very cheap ??? YES !!!!
Super duper cheap compare to those other two brands that already hit the market
 
 
I've purchased 5 from 80 colors they have
So many option too, from matte, shimmer, pearl, and many others.
The quality ???
For only $2 i think this shadows is so worth every penny.
It is very buttery smooth and so pigmented
I purchase one of the pearl type and i really impressed since it is not easily fall off and give such a nice intensity of color.
The shimmer one is very nice too since it's not too shimerry but still give those nice looking color on the lid.
So far i really impressed with the quality and the price
I mean it is $2 shadows but it feels expensive and the quality is so comparable to Mac which in my opinion is totally a steal !
 
 
 
One bad thing about this shadow is they actually name it based on number and color name.
Unlike makeupgeek shadows and Mac one, they didn't give it a kind of name that could be more interesting ><
I purchase five which is the ES 62 Muted Taupe Brown (Matte), ES 33 Soft Baby Pink (Pearl), ES 74 Copper (Shimmer), ES 11 Orange Copper ( Veluxe Pearl) and ES 64 Peachy Brown w/ Shimmer (Velvet).
 
If you are interested to try this morphe shadows, i know a coupon code that can save you 10%
Just use "JACATTACK" and you can get 10% off your entired purchase.
And they do ship to Indonesia that cost about $ 7 only.
So do check them out cause again i feel that this is so far a great steal than purchasing Mac shadow :D.
And also they do sell brushes with nice quality and great price range :)

♥ October Favorites ♥

Greetings my fellow readers
It is that time of the month again to write my favorites products of October xD
 
 
Etude House Ac Clinic Intense Pink Powder Spot
 
Starting with my new skincare favorite, which is the etude house pink powder spot
The reason why i try it because i currently run out of my most used Mario Badescu drying cream because i can't purchase them anymore at Luxola ><
I love my mario badescu so much but i have to move on and decide to give this a try.
What i actually like about it, the concept is pretty similar to the mario badescu one and it actually works too.
I found it dry my zits around 2-3 days and help maintain the whiteheads too.
Totally new love this month, and the best part is this products is much cheaper than mario badescu which is a best selling point of it if you want to compare it with the mario badescu one.
 
Make Up For Ever HD Foundation
 
A super old love of mine.
This foundation is the best when you want a nice coverage, a long lasting formula, a better instant good looking skin on photograph and many other reasons.
This foundation has been my holy grail for such a long time
I really love the finishes of this foundation and of course just like the name which is HD it's offering a super nice looking skin when you use it to photograph (not gonna flash back in the photo)
I use this one a lot this month due to a lot of parties i attend and this one just always cover my back.
Totally a must have if you want that HD kinda look *wink*
 
Benefit Fake Up Concelear
 
Another old love that i start to loving again
I really like this concelear when i feel my under eye area is pretty dry at the time cause it helps hydrating them and just cover the dark circle perfectly
Not easily crease too which become another bonus to using it :)
 
Milani Baked Blush in Luminoso
 
A perfect blush for that perfect peachy color cheeks !!!
My most favorite peach blush ever
It is so pigmented, stay longer on the cheeks, have a tiny bit of shimmer that make it looks gorgeous when you wear it and of course the super friendly pocket price.
Definitely one of the gems in the drugstore that you probably need to buy xD.
 
 
Maybelline Master Brow Pencil
 
A new thing i just found at drugstore
Very very cheap and nice brow products for the price
It is only Rp 30k which is insanely cheap (well comparing it to anastasia products it is very very cheap)
I really like the pencil form cause it makes drawing the brow easier
The only complain i have on this product is i wish they put spooley on it cause it will make it easier to use and to take travelling.
 
Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet in Ole Flamingo
 
My most use lip product this month and another fushcia lippies i love
I notice that this is actually very popular in Indonesia right now cause some people thinking that this is actually a cheaper dupe to LimeCrime Velvetines.
Well i never try Velvetines before, but honestly if you can get your hand on this products you should buy every single colors of them cause they're so darn good !!!
It is very damn pigmented, have a long lasting power on the lips that will not budge whatsoever, and just very lighweight to wear which is perfect for daily use.
 
So that's all guys for this month favorites
See you again on another montly favorites next time
 
xoxo

There is something about FUSCHIA ...

Hey guys
It's been a while since my last post
I'm kinda procrastinate a little bit to post something on my blog, mainly because i was lazy
But today i have something quiet interesting to post
Well lately i've been into the wagon of using Fuschia Lipstick
Reason ???
No reason at all
I just so into it right now
At first, i thought fuschia is not me
I remember long time ago, i see korean drama actress wears a lot of bright fuschia lipstick and i ended up bought one and when i try it on myself it look extremely ridiculous.
Then i put those lipstick in the deepest section of my collection and never wear it again.
Now, it is totally different situation
I don't know how it happen actually, but i try them on one more time and i was completely captivated !!!
Like seriously, i wear them almost every time i can get my hand on it.
So the big sum up about this post is literally not my struggle with fuschia lipstick bit more on the side that i wanna show you guys 4 type of fuschia lip products i've been loving now.
Are you ready ? xD

Etude House Dear Blooming Lipstick in shade PK015

Start with the first FUSCHIA lipstick i bought back then when i was obsessed with korean drama
It is the Etude House Dear Blooming Lipstick that is part of the pink collection Etude House release back last year.
I was really captivated with the ad where Krystal wear this lipstick.
I thought i never have lipstick with that color before and decided to buy it anyway


Turns out now, it is really become one of my favorite
I really like how the color show on my lips now.
It is very pigmented, have satin finish and leave a stain even after drinking or eating.
So i think it is a must to include this as one of my favorite " Fushcia Lip "

Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet in shade 37 L'exuberante

I always always love Chanel lipstick
The packaging, the formula, the goodness
It is just one of my favorite lipstick in the whole lipstick type and brand
This particular shade is one of my most use Chanel Lipstick
As the name suggest, it gives matte finish to the lip but not too matte that it makes it uncomfortable to wear.
It is extremely comfortable, so pigmented and has a good long lasting formula

Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet in shade Ole Flamingo

Have i ever mention that Bourjois is actually a sister company to Chanel Cosmetics?
Well no wonder because the quality of this lippies are comparable to Chanel
Just like the rouge allure velvet, the rouge edition velvet from Bourjois offer matte finish to the lip and a very lighweight formula so it is comfortable to wear daily basis,
The only different is the bourjois is in liquid creamy formulation
If you see the swatches below, the bourjois one has more creamy formulation than Chanel
And of course from the price
So if you need a nice dupe for the L'exuberante, just get the Ole flamingo :)


YSL Rouge Volupte Shine no.5 Fuschia in Excess

And the last of the whole Fuschia madness, i can't get done with it until mentioning YSL RVS in no.5
This is the lipstick when i want to rock the fuschia lip without going to much
It has sheer formulation which make it really nice to wear on daily basis since it shows sheer and just give hint of color to the lips
Just like wearing tinted balms but obviously better.
Definitely a stapple if you are a little bit shy to go full on bold lipstick xD.

So that's all guys
My all favorite Fuschia Lip kinda thing
Probably will make tutorial using one of this products later
Hope you enjoy my post

xoxo

How I Clean My Brushes

Hello xD
Today i'm back posting my usual method of how i clean all my brushes.
Well it is very important to clean your brushes on daily basis since we often use them at our face and sometimes it could be picking up bacteria that we can't see with bare eyes.
So yes i agree that cleaning brushes it is one of the most important part to keep bacteria mash up and ended up having breakouts on our face.
 
So the stuffs you need to clean your brushes are
1. Your dirty brushes of course
2. Baby shampoo
3. It is optional, but i like cleaning my brushes using gloves cause it makes it easier to clean the brushes and it doesn't take longer to do it.
4. Another optional thing, is my Sigma Dry and Shape cause it helps dry the brushes faster and keep maintain the shape of the brush the way it is.
 

 
Start with prepare your shampoo into a bowl or little plate like i do and mix it a little bit water
Then start wet the brush you want to clean and dip the brush in the solution of baby shampoo and water.

 
Using the gloves from sigma i start to swirl the brush in the WASH part of the gloves using circular motions.
Keep swirl it until there's lot of foam form and the start refine the brush in the REFINEpart.
The REFINE part help to deep clean the brush so the brush will be more cleaner and help it to refine bristle of the brush.
After that run the water to the brush until the foam is slightly gone and the rinse it on the RINSE part to remove makeup residue and soap.
After that i usually go back to REFINE again and then RINSE again.
Then the last step is to shape the brush back again in the SHAPE part.
So easy and very quick way to clean brushes
 
 
This is the closer look of the gloves
It has two part, the FACE part which is for bigger brushes like powder brush, foundation brush and etc.
While the other part is for the EYES part which is designed more suitable for washing smaller brushes like the lid brush, crease brush, blending brush and etc. 
 
 
 
Below is before and after picture
From very dirty blush brush into clean and ready to use blush brush xD.
 
 
Now it is time to dry them
Usually i only use towel to dry them but i just purchase this Sigma Dry and Shape from Luxola and guess what, it helps the dry process even faster and easy
It is designed to dry the brushes more quickly then just using towel cause it hold the brush upside down so the water after cleaning them can run down even faster.
Another advantage of using it, it helps shape the brushes so the brush will maintain it original form
Very cool stuff in my opinion.
It is pricey i know, around 400k but luxola often has discount code and i think it is a good investment cause you can use it like all the time or so i could say for eternity :p (totally hyperbole xD.)
 
 
So that's all of how i clean all my makeup brushes
This is so far the easiest method that work out for my brushes so well and until now my brushes still maintain it good shapes and well use eventhough i've been using them for 1,5 years now.
 
Hope you enjoy my post xD

♥ September Favorites ♥

Hi everyone
It is the time of the month again
Kinda hard to believe that september finally pass us and now it is October
Meaning only 3 more months before the end of 2014
Time is surely gone by faster than i thought this year ><
Nonetheless let's jump to this month favorites xD.
 
 
Etude House Good Bye Pore Ever Primer
 
New primer ! Yeay
Been using this stuff for whole month
Well i could quite say i like it since it helps with my oily skin quite a bit
It makes my skin more smooth and not too oily during the day
But for the pore reduce or invisible kind of thing, it is not helping whatsoever
But still i like it because it prevent my face to looking very greasy by the end of the day :)
 
3CE Highlight Beam
 
Well i've been digging the whole lifted and nicely highlighted cheek bones
So i try this one since this product already sitting on the pile of makeup i have and never give it a try before.
It slightly pink color but the color doesn't reduce the goodness of this product
I find it really nice to use since it is a liquid highlighter and the texture is nice and give very subtle look
So far really enjoying this one so much
 
Clinique Cheek Pop in shade Berry Pop
 
First thing first, let's adore the super beautiful packaging
I'm so into this kind of thing since it really pretty
But don't be wrong, it is not always usual that pretty packaging mean worst quality product cause this blush is amazing !!!
Love how pigmented this blush is, the texture is kinda unique too
When you touch it from the pan, it slightly has those creamy feeling but it is not cause it is turn to be a powder
And another good thing about it, is that this blush is so long lasting
Probably do to the unique texture of it
 
YSL Rouge Pur Couture shade 52 Rosy Coral
 
You probably see this coming already
I love it so much !!!!
Ever since i got it i never stop wearing it, like EVERY SINGLE DAY !!!
So crazy
The color is just suits me perfectly, the formulation is beyond word (all YSL lippies are amazing)
Just freaking love it so much
No need more explanation xD
 
Lavie Lash in Rosie
 
I never mention it before but i'm such big lover of Lavie Lash lashes
I really like this brand of faux lashes cause i find it more easy to use, very comfortable to wear (some lashes usually feel uncomfortable to wear) and you can basically use it up to 6-8 times if you clean them properly.
I really like this type call Rosie cause it is very natural, almost like my own lashes but definitely better
This type is perfect for everyday use too cause people will not notice whatsoever if you put some false lashes, very very natural :)
You can get this lashes from their website www.lavielash.com
Go check them out xD.
 
Sigma Tightline Brush
 
Mostly i like to tightline my eyes since i found it helps to define my eyes even better and not make them looks smaller
But tightline with gel liner is a little bit harder to do
But ever since i got this brush, it makes tightline even more easy !!!
The brush is soft to go into the sensitive are on eyes and definitely perfect for do tightline.
So if you want to try tightline with gel liner, probably should get this brush cause it is amazing
 
So that's all for my September favorites guys
Hope you enjoy my post
See ya

Simple Eye Makeup and Coral Lip Tutorial

Hey my fellow readers
As promise in my haul post, today i'm gonna show you guys how i do my makeup using this YSL Lipstick i just got.
Love this lipstick so much since it's remind me the look of Cheon Song Yi
But i'm not gonna recreate Cheon Song Yi look
Honestly, i'm not good to recreate people looks
So today i'm just gonna show you how i do it base on what i think best for myself.
xoxo
 
 
Soooo this is the look i create.
Just simple eye makeup to balance the bold coral-ly lipstick
I really like the way this lipstick show on my lips so much ^.^
 
The products i use to achieve this look are 
 
Foundation : Chanel Perfection Lumiere Velvet in shade B10
Eye : Urban Decay Naked Pallete using only shade Naked and Buck
3CE Creamy Waterproof Eyeliner in Zorro
Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler
Maybelline Rocket Volume Express Mascara
Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade in Chocolate
Cheek : Clinique Cheek Pop in shade 03 Berry Pop
Lip : YSL Rouge Pur Couture in shade 52 Rosy Coral
 
So for the tutorial i'm just gonna show you guys only the picture how i do the eye look since i think that is the part that need a little bit more than just an explanation.
 
First of course i start with applying my foundation using a beauty blender.
In the look i don't use concelear since i using two layer of this foundation to make it has more coverage.
Then, into the eyes
 
 
 I start with applying Naked (a light brown color) all over the lid, then i take Buck (a medium brown color) using a blending brush, brush Buck into the crease to make it more define.
Then i'm taking my eyeliner and only tightline my eyes.
Tightlining will help make your lashes appear more full and just give a nice settle eyeline without looking too much.
 

 
Next gonna curl those lashes and apply a generous amount of mascara xD.
 
Now for the brow
I'm using my trusty Anastasia dipbrow pomade that really good for humid weather.
Trust me, this brow pomade will not budge whatsoever !
 
Start with lining the bottom line of your brow first to make it really define
Then using the spooley, brush it upward to make it more natural and look like your own brow hair.
Brush over until you feel like it become more natural looking.
Next line the upper line of your brow with what left on your brush then brush over again so the line will not appear unnatural.
After that you can get your natural looking crisp brow xD
( This is the method i find the best to make my brow looks more natural ).
 
And last step just put your blush on the apple of your cheek and slap on the lipstick on your lips
That's it !!!
Quiet simple and quick makeup
 
 
Hope you enjoy my first tutorial
If it's hard to understand feel free to ask me ^.^
 
xoxo

REVIEW : Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet

Hey guys
Today post is another lip products review and it is from a brand call Bourjois
Well Bourjois is a france brand who is a sister company to Chanel Cosmetics
I hear a lot of Bourjois products from UK Blogger and Youtubers such as Viviannadoesmakeup and Amelia Liana.
And this particular lip product really caught my attention when they mention it in their video.
So about two months ago i put it as one of my wishlist products and finally i could get my hand on it.
 
 
For the packaging, it's just a simple tube packaging with colors base on the colors inside.
Very simple but quite elegant, it has dove applicator which is very common for liquid type lip products.
Consistency of the product itself it's not quite liquidy, more like cream which in my opinion is one of the reason the colors is so opaque.
Another thing that make me very interesting with this product is the finishes.
It's claim to be a matte finish lippies
 
Bourjois released 6 (six) colors for this line
I decided to got only two which is the red one no.3 Hot Pepper and the bright pink one no.5 Ole Flamingo
 
 
First impression ?
Well like i said before, it is very very pigmented.
The color is just super opaque and very creamy which make this product easily glide into the lips.
It is a matte finish but as you put it into the lips, slightly it will turn to be a little powdery.
As for how comfortable it is on the lips, well no doubt it is very lightweight on the lips which make people who wear it will feel more comfortable eventhough the color is super intense.
I really like the applicator too, it is a very good dove applicator.
One thing that i notice too while waring it, this products not easily budge and gonna last hours.
Even after drinking or eating, i found it still leaving stain in the lips.
 
For the minus
Well i have one problem with it
It smells like plastic !!!
not the packaging, but the actual lipstick is smells very plastic-y
I really hate it that way
I just hope when they reformulated this products they will do something about the smells cause it's kinda annoying ><.
But other than that, i have no problem with how this lippies perform.
Now i know why it's highly rave in UK xD.
 
( Hot Pepper )
 
( Ole Flamingo )
 
You can get Bourjois product on Department Store
I got mine from Metro for Rp 178.000 per piece
It's quite pricey but i like how it shows on my lips and how great the pigmentation is
 
I will definitely give this a 5 if only they do something about the smells but for now it still 4 stars only >.<
Hope you enjoy my post and see ya later.

Been wanting them all so much since i love to watch Marlena youtube channel.
I got 8 pans which is i know quiet a lot for me
But i can't help it ><
They're retail for $5,99 each pan and have a same quality or even better than Mac shadow and a lot cheaper too
It shipped right away from USA with very affordable shipping price
I only pay $6 for shipping right from USA to Indonesia
How cool is that !!!
Around Indonesia shipping usually cost me much more than this.
So glad i decided to get it right from the website than some online shop (overprice selling as always).
Feel free to check them out at www.makeupgeek.com
 
 
 
Next i got some affordable side makeup
I got three Maybelline 24 Color Tattoo since i love Bad to the Bronze so much i decided to get another colors that quite bold which is unlike me.
I get Too Cool which is a white silvery shade, than Tenacious Teal which is a beautiful teal color and last is Edgy Emerald which is slightly mint green with shimmery finish.
Next i got Tony Moly backstage eyeliner in Black that i want to try for such a long time ago but keep forgetting to buy it ><
And lastly is two new nail polish from Etude House Play Nails Collection :)
 
 
 
Last for makeup is LIPSTICK
This the part i most excited for xD
First, finally i could get my hand on the very infamous Cheon Song Yi Lipstick which is YSL Rouge Pur Couture No. 52 Rosy Coral !!!!!
Arghhhhhh !!!!!
Finally !!!!
I've been searching for this one for some time now but the overprice make me hesitate to buy it
But my wait is finally over, i found an online shop at instagram call BeautyPartner who sell this lipstick on very most reasonable price.
Lucky Me !!!
The color is just very pretty on my skin and quite flattering too
My sister even ask me to share it with her since it basically look good on everybody.
Definitely gonna make tutorial with it xD
Next i got me two new TOM FORD Lipstick
I know you guys probably think i splurge a lot
Well i do splurge a lot but i really love Tom Ford Lipstick that much that i decided to start collecting them.
Beside the reason i bought two is cause there's discount back in May which is the Neiman Marcus Annual Sale that make me decided to get more since it save me around 5 dollars each.
So quite a bargain xD.
 
 
Last for this haul post is new skincare products
First i got new moisturizer since my shiseido will run out soon i decided to have backup
But this time i wanna try new moisturizer and that is the Philosophy Oil Free Gel Moisturizer
I heard a lot of youtubers talk about this moisturizer and that's why i wanna give it a shot.
Beside, Philosophy now make it to Luxola and that means i could easily purchase them
And the best other part is that Luxola always come with discount codes that make the product is much cheaper that anywhere you could find.
About the beauty blender, it's one of free gift i receive from Luxola
There was this day when you purchase over Rp350.000 at Luxola you will get this beauty blender for free which in my opinion it's already paid for the entire purchase !!!
Great offer right
And last products is my oldie trusty Mario Badescu
I got this on a new kit they present which help me save some money more.
A total bargain
That's why i love shopping at Luxola
Be sure to check them out
They have all the nicest brand with high quality and of course great price and special offers and gift too xD
 
 
So that's all for my August Haul
Pretty sure i will have no more haul post in two three months ahead since it's quite a lot money i spend here >.<
Hope you like my post and stay tune cause i will definitely review some of them for you guys.
 
xoxo

REVIEW : Chanel Perfection Lumiere Velvet Foundation

Hey guys
Have you read my last post about my august favorites?
Well as promise there, i have a new foundation that i love as equal as my other ones
It is the newest Chanel Perfection Lumiere Velvet.
 
Well i'm not the type who use foundation on daily basis
For everyday i only use sunblock and loose powder since i'm pretty concern about my skin
But well there is times when i love to looking good and proper i think
Sooo usually on weekend i tend to use makeup a lot and from the start i use makeup i only found two base makeup that works the best for me and the most important that the base makeup will not break me up.
So far i only love the MUFE HD Foundation and IOPE XP Cushion
But back then i was intrigued to try this new foundation Chanel just release.
If you know me, i'm a big fans of Chanel makeup
I really like their design and packaging, and some of the product have the best quality that i couldn't find in any other products.
So when they finally release this foundation, i really want to try it so much
It is actually a sister to Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua Foundation that basically everybody rave about.
But i don't want to try the Vitalumiere Aqua since i think it will not suite me cause that foundation is really suitable more on dry to normal skin.
I actually glad Chanel finally come out with new formulation that more suitable for oily to combination skin.
That's why i wanna give this a try xD.
 
 
First look at those packaging
I really really love it.
It sleeks and very compact that make it easier to travel with.
Just make me glad i wait for it since i really this packaging more than the vitalumiere aqua
 
For the performance ???
Well for people who need a high coverage foundation, fair warning this one is not for you
This foundation more on the light to medium coverage
But i still love it since this foundation glides on smooth on my skin and honestly it feels just like my own skin.
It doesn't have those heavy feeling some higher coverage foundation have
The texture is very runny like water but when you put and blend it on your face it turns to more powdery finish which i like.
So for oily skin girl, this foundie will not make you look like shiny ball.
It last long about 8 hours and it's not oxidize quite much
One bad thing about it, it's a pricey foundation (around $45) ><.
Overall i really like this foundation so much
For more day basis i turns to this more now than my IOPE Cushion.
 
(How it looks on my face)
 
So that's it for my newest love
I really like it so far and has no problem with it whatsoever.
For reference, if you still hesitate to buy it just try the sample size first cause this foundation is quite pricey to not be use.
Feel free to ask if you have any questions :)

♥ August Favorites ♥ 

Hey guys
Today is another day to post my monthly favorites
Yeayyyyyy !!!
So sorry if it/s kinda late, but better late than never right ? xD
 
 
 
St. Ives Apricot Scrub
 
I'm totally in love with this new scrub i'd just found out
It's amazing
If you heard review about it before, trust me it's the truth
It exfoliate the skin gently and just in the right way
The scrub is not too harsh on the skin either unlike many scrub products you could find in the market.
I totally in love with it because it's good, it's affordable and just works briliantly.
You can find it at your local guardian since St. Ives finally made it to Indonesia xD
 
Maybelline The Rocket Mascara
 
I already have this particular mascara for months now but i'm drown more to my tarte mascara
But since my tarte mascara already run out, i try this
I like this one too.
The effect it gives might slightly not like the tarte one but so far so good
It's waterproof and it holds the curl longer too. The fact that it is waterproof not make it any harder to remove too.
So far so good. Plus it's cheap xD.
 
Chanel Perfection Lumiere Velvet Foundation
 
Honestly, if you can see my makeup stash, so far i only use two base makeup for my face which is either Make Up Forever HD Foundation (My HG Foundation so far) and IOPE XP Cushion.
But this one, it totally make me fall in love right at the first time i use it.
It glides on the face smoothly and once it set it feels just like your own skin
Really really nice !!!
I've been using this for the whole August now and i don't find anything wrong yet (it's not break me out which is good).
Will do review on it soon too so just stay tune xD.
 
SLEEK Face Contour Kit in Shade Light
 
I'm not the type who contour very much, but this product really come in handy when you want to contour.
First, the color i think is perfect for my skin tone since it's not too orange or too red base
Second, it comes with highlighter so it's perfect for travel
And the last thing is it's cheap but do work super nicely
So if you into contour wagon, probably you should give this one a try xD.
 
 
3CE Highlighter in Shade Beige
 
Well i know you probably wondering why i put another highlighter in my monthly favorites.
Well i really like this one too.
If i'm not in the mood to contour, i reach for this one the most.
I think the color is just nice and i really like how it highlight my cheek bones too
So insert this one is a must i think :D
 
NYX Butter Gloss in Peach Cobbler
 
Well i never love lip glosses before but this product just change my mind about it.
It is one of the best lipgloss i ever try so far
It's so pigmented, like what you see in the packaging is the color that gonna show up on your lips
It's very cheap too and not leaving any sticky feeling that i don't like from a lipgloss.
Last thing you will love from it is the smell
It smells like vanilla cupcake !!!
Just perfect right ???
If you wanna try to use lipgloss you really need to consider try this one xD.
 
So that's guy for my August Favorites.
I don't have much favorites this month but i hope you could enjoy my post
Again, feel free to comment if you have anything you wanna ask
See ya
