Review - Beyond Save Us Lipstick in 03 Beige

Hello folks! :D

Back again with blogging after some time. April started with a very hectic weeks (cause of midterm and all).

This time it's Beyond's product again, yes, I love the brand and their products!
I'm lucky enough to win the Chinese New Year makeup contest held by Beyond Indonesia back in February. I won total 3 products of their Save Us line, an eyeshadow, blusher, and this lipstick.
When you open it you can see cute little otters around the cylinder. So cute!
The packaging is plastic but the cylinder inside is metal as you can see.

So happy to get the lipstick in this shade because I've been wanting it for like a year already. Look at the super cute bullet! No one can't be not wanting this. LOL.

When I looked at it I thought well it would be a non-glitter lipstick finally, but I'm wrong! It's glittery -_- (not too much though)
But the shade is super lovely. I finally have a nude lipstick! >v< The color is coralish-beige. I was kinda hoping it would turn out pinkish though. But I just don't mind~~
I can tell that this lipstick is super moisturizing when I apply it. It glides super smooth just like the Kate's Rouge HG or the Luster one. The huge plus point is that this one feels very lightweight even if I layer it.

However the finish is rather not my liking because it looks kinda waxy. Waxy finish makes the lips kinda look fake and makes the overall face look old in my opinion. Just a very personal opinion.
 With different camera lighting...... In the picture it looks gorgeous though.

It has this cola-berry smell, but not that significant,,,, I can't really describe but it's not one strong smell - almost scentless - so it's super fine with me. 

Anyhow, the staying power is okay. Won't disappear unless you eat or drink just like usual lipstick. But since the shade is nude so I can't really tell. Just after I finished eating that lipstick feel was totally gone and I assume the color definitely had gone too.

That's all for this time's review.
Oh, and please follow my blog by GFC :)

See you guys in the next post! :D

Be Confident with Clean, Healthy & Radiant Skin by PPP Laser Clinic

Hello, folks! :D

For today I'm gonna talk about things that I never tried before. It's skin laser treatment! Woohoo~~
I'm very thankful to PPP Laser Clinic for giving me the chance. Laser is one tricky treatment. I thought it's only for people 20s and up and I was wrong. With PPP Laser Clinic, it's very safe. Even for me. (I'm not 20 yet lol) Because they're using low intensity laser.

What is PPP exactly? PPP itself stands for Pores, Pimples and Pigmentations. Sounds very great, don't you agree? It originates from Singapore, and expands to Indonesia as one of the Laser Clinic in Jakarta.

So I got this amazing complimentary package treatment, consists of:
SEVEN session of PPP Laser & Light Cleaning System - which usually referred as LLCS, and
ONE session of PPP Micro Laser & Cool Touch - usually referred as the Combo Treatment.
Such a great treatment that I'd got.

What does LLCS do?
It helps to lighten pigmentations, such as spots.
It stimulates the skin to produce more collagen. As PPP Laser Clinic treatment is more in frequency than intensity, it results in skin thickening.
It also reduces sebum production from the gland resulting in minimized pores.
It makes skin feels cleaner and fresher because it removes dirt, dust, dead skin cells.
As one extra benefit, the face hair is turning white! (>v<)

What about Micro Laser and Cool Touch?
Result of smoother, tighter, firmer skin.
It reduced fine lines and wrinkles.
Reduces active acne and acne scars.
The way it works, it makes your skin regenerate quickly, as side effects, peeling of the skin.

My treatment goes like, 2x LLCS on Saturday, 2x LLCS on Sunday, 2x LLCS on Monday, 1x Combo and 1x LLCS on the next Saturday (because I don't have any spare time on weekdays.
Both LLCS and, Micro Laser and Cool Touch treatment takes about 15 minutes only.
All the treatment is done in PPP Laser Clinic Grand Indonesia.

This is me before the first treatment of LLCS. I have no idea why my face looked so dull....

They cleaned my face, with I dunno what but it feels so smooth like wet tissues.
Then wipe my face with cool water. Yes they have a sink and counter just above my head where they prepare for everything.

Here comes the Laser! They called it the photo-laser session.

I have to admit I'm quite surprised of how it feels on my skin. It's like your skin is stabbed by mini needles. It hurts more than I expected, but it's still bearable to me. (Note that lots of my friends said that my pain nerves are insensitive. Lol)

Okay so the laser part is done. Now the Light part!!!
Seriously I almost screamed when I first encounter the blinking super light. The light is blinking. They call it Photo-shower. It's gonna be A LITTLE bright, they said.
 I wear googles already but GOSH it's very annoying and still very very bright even that I've wear the googles. Yeah but I begin to used to it after 2-3 times of the treatment.

As the last step, toner is applied to my face. If the treatment is done by the afternoon, additional sunblock is applied.
The immediate result from the LLCS is that my skin feels smooth, tighter, brighter skin, and redness on my face it's significantly reduced!

Now into the Combo treatment. It hurts much less, but it's more to heat. You might notice the quality of picture drastically changes because this one is taken with a phone which camera lens is already scratched here and there.....
You can see that 3 dots on my left side of the mouth. That's due to the breakout.
They said the after effect of this combo treatment is that the skin will be red, and peeling of the skin. And yes it happens to me. Before the dead skin totally come off, it first become kinda net like pattern. That's why I know it's from the laser, because normal peeling skin doesn't have net pattern! My skin gone through about 2 times of peeling.

Here's my skin progress summary:
Before the LLCS treatment, my problem is my forehead.
Within the treatment, problem on forehead is gone, new problem is around my mouth because I  had this sudden break out around my mouth one night (oh god why....)
After all the treatment (including Combo), the acne dried because the Combo treatment is like burning it.
1 day after, my face was very red in the morning.
2-5 days after, all problematic area skin keeps on peeling and regenerating. All that's left is spots around my mouth due to the break out.
After all the peeling session, my skin is smooth and pores on my nose is a bit less visible!

I didn't post any before-after picture because my own camera is not that good quality, that redness on the face barely visible. It's like no difference by the picture so I didn't post it,, but I swear my skin really improves!

Thank you PPP Laser Clinic!

IBB MUC February 2015 Flowery Garden with The Saem Indonesia - 2

Hello folks! :D
Back with the second look. The first look is here

This MUC is held by IBB and sponsored by the Saem Indonesia. Not to mention their ambassador is SHINee! I was kinda shocked to know that SHINee have left the other brand. Maybe the contract is over? I don't really know. All I know is that I can't wait to see more of Onew's picture! *melts* <3

Anyway! If you want to try their products you can contact them here (for Indonesian only):
Facebook Page:
The other product that I really really want to try is their Thanakha Pore Tightening Serum. It's listed as one of the best in Sun Hye Mi's blog! Yet there's no review in the net about that product. So curious.....

So here it is!
 Almost no difference with the previous look? Well not that much difference.. (Since I'm using the same shirt *cough*). Different flower pin, different eyeshadows, different lashes, different lip products.

The eyeshadow is shimmer pale light yellow on the inside and pale green on the outside. I'm not using any eyeliner and just focus on the long, wispy lashes. I'm lovin' the lashes!

Still the same blush, same brow, no tear liner, just extended the eyeshadow 'til the inner corner and of course a Korean lip tint!

Products used:
- Kate BB Gel OC-C
- Majolica Majorca Little Humming Book I, II & IV
- Majolica Majorca Brow Customized Super Slim
- Lavie Lash - Fleur
- Beyond Save Us! Cheek Lavender
- Daiso Pink Eyeshadow stick
- Innisfree Flower Tint in Azaleas

Let's close this post with an awkward pose (AGAIN)

Please follow my blog :D

IBB MUC February 2015 Flowery Garden with The Saem Indonesia - 1

Hello, folks! :D

Participating again in this month's makeup challenge! I have to admit this month is a super busy month - school starts already with a lot of activities still going on. Chinese New Year, aunts' birthday, still blogging, reunion, choir practice, etc etc etc...... But still I managed to finish it!

Yes this MUC is held by IBB and sponsored by the Saem Indonesia. Omg to recall how I keep eyeing on their products since I use the Mojito toner. If you wanna buy their products you can check them out here (for Indonesian only):
Sadly the Mojito line is not available yet. The product that I wanna try most is their Urban Eco Harakeke Firming Seed Sleeping Pack (aside from the Mojito line). It sounds really great by the description >w>)

Here's the first look! (Yeah second look is coming right up soon)
I made the look rather natural (or very natural?) inspired by the cherry blossom. I don't want to go too flowery(?) because flower crown is too mainstream (WHAT?!) I mean, because I think flower crown is a bit too much to go with a natural look. Well, it's also because I don't have any! I do have fake flowers but I already use them in the last year's and last month's MUC *sobs*

All about pink moist glossy lips, sheer blush.... I actually use a lavender blush and layer it with pink eyeshadow stick and blend blend blend. I didn't use black/brown eyeliner here. I wear kinda green olive pencil liner. The eyeshadow is shimmer beige color on the inside and rather pinkish dark brown for the outside.
Lashes and tear liner and thick eyebrow. Check!

Products used:
- Kate BB Gel OC-C
- Majolica Majorca Little Humming Book IV
- Majolica Majorca Brow Customized Super Slim
- Kate Crystallise Quartz BR-2 (B)
- Etude House Look At My Eyes PP503
- Holika Holika Jewel Light Eyeliner #12
- Majolica Majorca Shiny Ray Liner
- Dolly wink Lash no. 15 Pure Girl
- Beyond Save Us! Cheek Lavender
- Daiso Pink Eyeshadow stick
- Kate Rouge Luster PK-2

Let's close this post with an awkward (stupid) pose.

Please follow my blog too :D
See you guys in the next post!

Review - 3 Concept Eyes Dangerous Matte in #708 Birthday

Hello, folks! :D

Back again with this so-raved brand, 3 Concept Eyes!
And still the same, it's the lip color. So I won't go over again with the packaging.

I was so in love with the Jammer (review) one and I decided to go with the Dangerous Matte.
At first I really want to pick the same matte but different color, Sugary Cake but then my sister said it was too usual of a color, and I saw this one wasn't that bad. I do want a kinda 'usual' color to be worn everyday.

I must admit I'm super shocked when I first open then lipstick cap right after I receive it. The bullet's color is so neon-orange-red colored. However, when applied, the color is still 'acceptable'.

Here's the swatch by gradation and full lips

 In real life it's more neon-colored. If I'm in a dim-light room it's like I'm wearing a very-pop-out-color.
The point is, the color is okay. Kinda annoys me how it looks better by the camera lol.

Now to the texture. Yes it is more matte than the matte one (duh the sentence). It is so matte that it can't glide on my lips. Uhm. It's so matte that it cracks on the lip if you put too much. BUT. Supposedly you use a lip balm first then the dangerous matte. That solves the problem! *claps*

The staying power is not that good if you don't wear lip balm underneath since it'll dry your lips and when that dry chapped skin got off and leave a 'bald spot' on the lips..... If you know what I mean. If you don't then.... *speechless*

And about the scent, it's interesting that the lipstick don't have any scent. Because most of the lipstick these days usually made with a lil bit perfume to make it smells good, and some of them on contrary having a very waxy plastic smell. Not like I hate perfume but it's better to have no scent.

I guess that's all!

Anyway, Jakarta these days are so troubled with flood until that point that if it rains people start to panic and go home. Due to flood too the PLN (the one controls the electricity over the country) cut off some area's electricity supply, for safety, they said, but still some people got electrocuted and died. So please be safe, those in Jakarta (and wherever if your place got flooded too). Hope the over-rainy days will be over soon.

See you guys in the next post!

IBB MUC January 2015 "Exotic Japan" Underneath Your Skin #Smartlook

Hello, folks! :D

Here I am back again with another makeup challenge by Indonesian Beauty Blogger x CamJoe
So,who's CamJoe? She's a singer and her real name is Camellia Jonathan and yes, Underneath Your Skin is her latest song, which featuring Hatsune Miku! Cool right. The song has lots of electronic effects and really screams out technology in my ear. LOL.

Anyhow, IBB already held the MUC in November and December with different theme. This time the theme is Exotic Japan.

So the look is supposed to inspired from the song. So kinda like, technology x exotic..... Kinda contrast, eh? But Japan indeed is a country combining nature (how beautiful the view there) and tech (not to mention the virtual singer, Miku...).I saw CJ in the banner the first thing that came to my mind is a festival. Those in mangas where the girls dressed in yukata and hang out around the shrine (lol! read too much manga). But the word Exotic and Japan is definitely geisha. So I kinda combining a natural x geisha look and here it is.

*cough*that chubby round face argh!
No if you think I choose a wrong shade of my face makeup. I just add a layer of white shimmering powder on my face after using foundie. I didn't use it till the neck though...  (probably the biggest mistake) I still want to keep that geisha look by long and upward eyeliner.

I used kinda-burgundy-shade eyeliner and extended downwards under the eye for more traditional look. I also used blush but its under the 'apple of the cheeks' (or whatever) where we supposed to put our bronzer for shading.

I don't want to go over fabulous by using thick eyelashes so I only wear accent one and mascara

Red lips is definitely on the list. I actually made it kinda gradient but well the camera didn't caught it! And about the hair, flowers are great on the head! Muahahaha! Japanese girls always use flower hair pins on their head when then wear yukata, no? I only make like a half-done-bun. Because of my haircut is not possible to have a proper bun,,,
And my current hair is ombre, because I bleached my tail, and it's been 5 months since I'd done full head dyeing so the roots are growinggg~

Products used:
Integrate Gracy Essence BB #1
Majolica Majorca Little Humming Book IV
Milani Illuminating Face Powder #3
Majolica Majorca Brow Customized Super Slim
Kate Gel Eyeliner Matte Black
Etude House Drawing Show Creamy Pencil
Etude House Rosy Tint Lips
Dolly Wink Eyelash No. 15

That's all! Below I'm gonna insert some screenshots as the requirements

And below is the Underneath Your Skin Teaser! You can download the song for free in

I always try to spare some time for this one aside that the choir activity has gone super mad. Thankfully I finally finished this post. LOL! Anyhow I'll be going to Bandung for 11 days, yes, eleven, for the choir competition so I'll be absent till I get home by 5 February.

Wish me luck and see you guys in the next post! :D

Review - Beyond Apple Mint Fresh Cleansing Water

Hello, folks! :D

Meet me again by new year.
Let's start this year with a review.

Lately I really consider the 'cleanliness' of my face because I use makeup almost everyday, and it's like more than 12 hours (if it's not holiday) and I know how sometimes the makeup was not cleaned completely. It rarely happens to me though, that the foundation was 'left' on the cotton when I use toner. I guess my facial wash cleans well? Lol.

Actually, in my house we've got 2 cleansing cream and 1 face wash that supposedly cleans super well (all of them are branded products) but the fact is that they don't remove the makeup completely. Aside from that, what I know, cleansing water is more suitable for those with oily/combination skin.

I got this from my sister, she bought it in Korea. I really love their blush and it's not that very mainstream brand and I'm totally sold to the line. This Apple Mint line from Beyond is meant for pore so it's meant to clean deep to the pores.

The design is cute, but I guess the dove and transparent covering makes is hard to read the info at the back. But I don't mindddd~
Information at the back. Good thing is that they put some info in English. Plus point!

So supposedly you don't need to wash with other cleansing products but yeah I'm one stone-headed person so I still use my face wash after using this.

I first find how clean this product cleans is when I took out my used-up IOPE Cushion and squish it by my palm. (Le me trying to do something stupid or was in stupid mode I really don't remember why I did that :| )
Then actually a little of it got into the lines in my palm.
I tried to clean it with my face wash, not working. With the branded fash wash, not working either. With the branded cleansing cream, still not working! :v then I remembered  that I just got this so I tried and yes! It cleans it! Totally! That is when I'm super amazed with this product.

It comes by the pump exactly like EH's Wonder Pore Freshener. I really like this kind of pump that I don't need to make a fuss with pouring and putting the products back to my makeup rack. LOL! (Lazy me)

It doesn't make my skin dry, no stinging feeling, and really feels good on my skin. It smells so good too! Smells super fresh that I really like it!

Design. 5 stars. Cute! but not over-girly cute.
Scent. 5 stars. Fresh, not so sweet, kinda fruity.
Result. 5 stars! My HG cleanser already! <3
Availability. 1 star... Yeah the problem with this product is that I can hardly get it.

I guess that's all!
See you guys in the next post! :D

With Love,
