August 2013 Beauty Favorites

Hello, lovelies~ August is coming to an end, so it is with great joy that I present to you my beauty favorites throughout the month of August. Aside from it being a happy month because of Mr. G's birthday, I settled my own problems that I had earlier this month. Glad to say that I am happy to have found the solution to it~ Let me show you what my favorites are!

1. Schwarzkopf Q10 Recharge Conditioner
One of the silicone-free conditioners that is available in most supermarkets. I bought mine at SOGO Food Hall for my brother and I. We both love it! It smooths my hair without causing it to look so limp and lifeless.

Hello, lovelies~ For me, lipstick is one the many makeup items that can give an instant change in a person’s overall complexion.

In this post, I want to review a lipstick from a local brand called PIXY.

Skin Class by Bioderma

Hello, lovelies~ If you watched Youtube, you are probably already familiar with the Bioderma Sensibio H2O because most beauty Youtubers have been raving on and on about it. I, personally, have used it for a year and fell in love with this gentle yet powerful cleanser. Last Saturday, I was invited by the Bioderma team for a skin class to know better about the skin and Bioderma Sensibio H2O.

FANCL Mild Cleansing Oil Review

Hello, lovelies~ Cleansing oil has been incorporated in my routine ever since I learned that my oily skin doesn't need to fear the power of oil for a deep and thorough cleansing process. I started using cleansing oils before my face wash and noticed that the acne on my face becomes less apparent ever since. A lot of beauty brands have come up with their own cleansing oil and so does FANCL, so I tried it for two weeks to see how it works for me.

Happy Day, Indeed.

Hello, lovelies~ How is August treating you so far? It has treated me like Cinderella since there were no house assistants at home, so I'm left doing chores, lol. No matter, we ate out most of the times, anyway. Mr. G has his birthday last week, but we celebrated the day after because I have to stay at home that time. We went to Happy Day, a restaurant along Juanda street that we often frequented.

Revlon New Complexion Oil Control Makeup Foundation Review

Hello, lovelies~ a couple of months ago, when I went to Star department store at Kelapa Gading mall, I browsed through the Revlon counter. I wasn't looking for anything specific, but I found this item that I have yet to try, another foundation, lol. I know. I still haven't finished other liquid foundations, but I can't resist passing this one up, so I bought the oil control makeup from Revlon. I've used this for over a month and here is the review.

Maybelline Color Sensational Swatch (part II)

Hello, lovelies~ A few weeks ago, I received three of the Maybelline Color Sensational lipstick from Maybelline Indonesia for review. Thank you! I have already reviewed this line of lipstick from Maybelline a while back (link is here) and I love it. I won't go too much into reviewing the texture and longevity as I've already done so in this post, just click here to see a more detailed review on these lipsticks. In the meantime, enjoy the swatches for these three colors. 

I got three shades, each from a different class of colors, which are red, pink and beige brown. I rarely buy a nude brown shade, mainly because it doesn't look too good on me.

Klairs BB Cream Illuminating Supple Blemish Cream Review

"Disclosure: This product was sent to me for review purposes in exchange for my honest opinion after trying it out. " Complete disclosure here

Hello, lovelies~ Even though CC creams are selling off the shelves like hot cake these days, I still have a place in my heart for BB creams. Probably because most CC creams are either too light for me or it's those white colored creams that changes color. Today, I'll be sharing my thoughts about the Klairs BB cream I received from WISHTREND a few weeks ago.

Lucido-L Hair Make Supplement Triple Beauty Vitamin Oil for Damaged Hair Review

Hello, lovelies~ I am not one to fuss a lot with my hair because I never grow them past my shoulders, so I never had any problems like dry ends.  However, my hair has already grew pas my shoulders now and it has been the longest I've ever experienced. I still use a silicone free shampoo, which is great for my scalp, but not so much for the ends of my hair. It becomes frizzy and very dry, so I decided to get a silicone based hair serum/vitamin because it works great on sealing the moisture inside those dry parts of my hair. In short, I bought the Lucido-L Vitamin Oil for my hair to try out.

Nature Republic Super Origin Complete Control Cream Tinted Review

“Disclosure: I bought this product with my own money. I am neither affiliated with this company nor am I being paid to write this post. My opinions are of honest and my own.”Complete disclosure here

Hello, lovelies~ CC creams are probably one of the hottest beauty trend in Korea right now and most of the brands I know (Etude House, Tony Moly, etc) are coming up with their own version of the cream. I have been favoring the Rachel K CC cream since it matches my skin tone perfectly without creating that white or grey colored finish on my face. Personally, I feel that they're one of the same with BB creams in terms of texture and finish, but I'm always inclined to try out new things. Who doesn't? ^_^

Anyway, I prefer to have a light coverage base makeup because I still want some skin to show through instead of being covered for everyday routine. It doesn't need to make my complexion flawless, just enough to minimize the redness on my cheeks. That is why I don't like those CC creams that turned from white to beige because it still leaves a whitish cast on my face. This product from Nature Republic is a tinted CC cream, so I tried it out. Plus, it was on discount of Qoo10 for Rp 100,000, so I got it. ^_^

There is more than one type of CC cream in this collection from Nature Republic, but I went with the tinted one to reduce the chances of a whitish cast on my face. This is a good move from Nature Republic because not everyone is going to have the same needs when looking for a CC cream.

Why I Love Bioderma

Hello, lovelies~ I have been using Bioderma H2O Sensibio (the one with the pink cap) for nearly a year now and I am loving every drop of it. I have already reviewed it in depth in my post right here.

Let's go!

Maybelline New York Color Sensational Bold Matte Review

Hello, lovelies~ I received a couple of lippies from Maybelline Indonesia a few weeks ago, introducing their Color Sensational line. I have already reviewed the Color Sensational lipsticks here. You can just click on this link to read an in-depth review on it, but I haven't tried their matte range. For those who just can't get enough of matte lipstick, let's go start the review!


The brand new lipstick has a plastic seal with the words BOLD MATTE by Color Sensational that nearly covers the whole case. I haven't seen the other shades, but I reckon the cases resembles the color of the lipstick inside. That's just an assumption, though, so don't quote me on that.
