Ten Travel Beauty Buddies Challenge

Saturday, November 30, 2013

Hello, lovelies~ If you followed me on instagram, I once posted a picture of my makeup that I brought to a 4 day trip to Bandung. Not gonna lie, it was a LOT. This is the picture of the makeup I mentioned.

Now that I am going travelling again, I challenge myself to only bring 10 makeup items for my 7 day trip, so I won't overpack my makeup items. Here they are.

Hello, lovelies~ I rarely review a lip gloss, but I have been using this a lot recently that I thought I'd share my thoughts on this. I received this from a lovely friend , Sha, as a birthday present this year. I was surprised to receive it, truth be told (Thank you, Sha!). Anyway, let's continue with the review, shall we?

Rojukiss Pore Tightening Pack Review

Monday, November 25, 2013

" 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~ For those with combination oily or oily skin types are probably already familiar with clay masks since they help in absorbing all of those excess oils on the face. I was looking for a new clay mask when WISHTREND sent me the Rojukiss Pore Tightening Pack.

Unlike other masks that are packaged in a jar, Rojukiss packaged theirs into a blue squeeze tube. Thumbs up for them because I can't stand jar containers due to their unhygienic property. I mean, aside from double dipping, the prolonged and repeated exposure to air will reduce the quality of the product, yes? So, Rojukiss, you're off to a good start in my book. :) 

I thought that it lacks the English version of ingredients, but it was there inside the box, yeay~ It contains Kaolin, which is a basic clay mask ingredient that sucks all of the excess oil on the face. Bentonite is an ingredient similar to that, still awesome, don't worry.

The clay mask has light blue color  with a subtle floral scent that I like. I'm not usually into perfumed or fragranced beauty products, but I like it~ As with most clay masks, Rojukiss also has that thick-clay-like texture.

To use it, I squeeze a dollop of product on my fingers and continue to spread it all over my face. Despite the thick consistency, it is easy to spread it all over my face. It applies blue at first when it is still wet, but as it dries slowly, the color turns lighter. No, it's not magic, calm down, :)

As it was drying on my face, I can feel a tightening sensation as if my skin is being 'massaged'. This is one of the reasons why I prefer clay masks over sheet masks. Also, I tend to wash off the mask as the clay is starting to dry, not when it's dry and cracked. This ensures the moisture is still maintained, while getting the excess oil off my face. On my combination skin, it doesn't dry out my U zone due to this method.

The picture below shows the before and after picture for comparison. After the clay mask is washed off, my face feels much smoother and no more flaky skin around my nose. Ignore the redness on my left eyebrow because that was caused by an incidental scratch, lol. My skin looks more glowy and brighter afterwards, I love it!

Since it is a pore tightening pack, here is a picture of my pores. Excuse the nasty blackheads that are still lingering there, it's not time for a facial yet, :) It doesn't tighten as good as it is in removing all the excess oil on my face. However, it does reduce some of the appearance of my large pores, so it's good.

Overall, I think I am really falling in love head over heels with this clay mask (or pack, as they say) from Rojukiss. It does the job in removing any excess oils on my face without the overwhelming dryness that a usual clay mask does. My pores are the same size, but my face is much smoother than before using it. I really enjoyed using this after a hectic day where my skin just feels 'blah'. This is a real savior!

Rojukiss Pore Tightening Pack (200 g)

Price: USD $ 21.50 (exc. shipping)

Hello, lovelies~ Dewy or glowy skin is all the rage right now in the beauty world because it resembles natural and healthy-looking skin. A few weeks ago, shu uemura Indonesia invited to their luncheon and gave me the opportunity to try out a new foundation called The Lightbulb Foundation. With a claim 'Glow under any light', I am more intrigued to try it out.

Review Tony Moly Backstage Gel Eyeliner

Wednesday, November 20, 2013

“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 honest and my own.” Complete disclosure here 

Hello, lovelies~ This product that I am about to review is the second eyeliner I tried back then when I was still a newbie in beauty blogging (2011). It was on sale and I thought it'd be a great idea to try out a gel eyeliner. I've forgotten about it until Tony Moly went on a promotion, so I bought it again. The only difference is I bought the purple shade back in 2011, instead of the black I bought a couple of months ago. 

The packaging is unique, but space-consuming at the same time. I guess the pointy end makes it a little less travel friendly. However, Tony Moly inserted a small brush at the pointy end, so there is no need to a bring another brush if you're on the go.

Hello, lovelies~ Since the rainy season is already here, my lips starts to get chapped more easily. I once woke up to a temperature of 24 degree Celcius! In Jakarta! That's cold for Jakarta, lol. It was raining cats and dogs the night before, so it is reasonable for the temperature to reach that new low. Having said all that, I have prepped myself with a new lip balm that I've had about a month ago, I believe. Here is what I think of it.

Hello, lovelies~ How is everyone doing in the middle of the week? It's just two more days until the lovely Friday came to rescue us from the workday, lol. Anyway, I want to review a concealer that I have been using quite often recently. 

Packaged in a similar tube as usual lip gloss, the Berry Lovely Girl Tip concealer has a doe foot applicator. Measuring at 8.5 cm in length, this concealer is compact to carry for travel purposes in almost any makeup bag.

Cottage Shower Gel Launch Event

Monday, November 11, 2013

Hello, lovelies~ Have you ever heard of the brand called Cottage? Honestly, I haven't heard of it before I was sent the invitation to attend their launch last Thursday. I was half guessing with my brother and Mr. G that the brand was 'probably inspired' by the creamy texture of cottage cheese, lol. So, was I right? Keep on reading to find more about Cottage.

Bouncia Body Wash Review

Friday, November 08, 2013

"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~ I received a package the other day that kinda surprised me because I didn't remember ordering anything online. However, my memory was refreshed when I saw the shipper's name, Kawaii Beauty Japan. Thank you! Not gonna lie, I opened the package kinda like a savage who has been stranded on a desert island for weeks on end, lol. Anyway, it made my day when I saw the Bouncia label on the bottle. I rushed to the shower to give this baby a try and after a couple of showers, here are my thoughts on it.

Bouncia was first released in 2003 and has been popular ever since then for their 'whipped-cream-like' bubbles. This is one of reasons why I am so keen on trying out Bouncia. I mean, who can resist taking a shower with those dense, luxurious, making-me-feel-like-a-princess bubbles? Come on~

Not only is it appealing to see because of its pink color, but it also works beautifully to apply your base makeup. Finally, I have it in my arms, say hello to the Beauty Blender Sponge, ladies~
