Beauty Blender - Not Only A Sponge - It's a Beauty Perfection


Hi Ladies,

Have you ever felt imperfect when you are doing your own make up? I do. I always feel that my make up isn't good enough due to my skin condition. I have a large pores and dark spots on my face, and even when I use a lot foundation, it always seems imperfect to me. And do you know something? this "too much foundation" makes my make up look cakey. I always think - hey, why don't you just wear a mask?? (LOL)

Cakey..ouch!!
A several q&a to couples beauty expert and little research that I'm done recently have lead me to a conclusion that  I should have an applicator called sponge. Sponges has very flexible shape so we can "just" press it (with foundation) onto our face. Sponges apply foundation better than brushes or even our fingers, thus the result is much more desirable. Okey, I got it ^^ 

Then, I'm curious what kind of brand that I should choose. There are 2 or 3 option, but then I decide to try Beauty Blender to solve my problem.

I once asking my self..."why should I choose Beauty Blender? Why not the others or a famous brush brand? "  Here is the answer I found:

Beauty Blender first invented by Rea Ann Silva - a top Hollywood make up artist. As a professional make up artist she know the key to a perfect and flawless make up - a perfect blend (source www.beautyblender.net). To make it real, it's not enough to use an ordinary sponge. And there was born Beauty Blender..(tadaaaa..^^)


.
Beauty Blender - easy to use, and reach every corner and angle of our face.

Why Beauty Blender can make you a perfect blend just like a pro?  In spite of the price, Beauty Blender can 100% absorb your foundation - this is a plus point compared with other sponges. Then its elliptical shape can reach every corner and angle of our face such as under eye, nose and mouth - this is a plus point compared to brushes (i have use more than 1 brush to apply foundation - 1 for my cheek and forehead, and 1 for the corners and angles of my face). And of course its durability adds one more plus point..

Beauty Blender also a latex free, odor free and non allergenic. 

So, see why we should choose Beauty Blender rather than other applicator? ^^

Review : Elianto Stay On Liquid Eyeliner

Hi...im come back with another review..^^

As we know, about a months ago Ms Carnellin Yulianti with her blog WhileYouOnEarth has "Carnellin 12 Days of Christmas Giveaway". One of the sponsor is Elianto Indonesia, and lucky me I'm one of the winner who get a IDR 100.000,- voucher from Elianto Indonesia

I'm really excited about the voucher. As far as I know, I never use any product of Elianto's except the brushes. The brushes are good enough comparing with the price (because the prices is cheap - especially when there's a 50% discount ^^) But quietly, I always look at the shadows too..:D 

Since the voucher is coming and there's a surprise gift from Carnellin for someone who take a pic or review or anything with the prizes, so I'm moving fast to the Mall of Indonesia Elianto's Counter at Saturday to buy some products.

My choices are always eyeliner. Its always happen anytime. So, with no doubt, I'm choosing Elianto Stay On Liquid Eyeliner. This choice is a lil bit influenced by the Elianto's Beauty Advisor, but I believe that she's speaking honestly about her testimoni. 

So, this is the pic I've taken about my new eyeliner!

Elianto Stay On Liquid Eyeliner
It has a sharp applicator and the diameter is quite big
two swatches I've made 
The packaging is standard, just like an ordinary eyeliner. Packaging color is black, and the applicator is sharp (taped) and the diameter is quite big. The bigger diameter is affecting the swatch I've made, because I can't make a black-fine-long line. Then the color of the swatch isn't really really black. I need to swatches it twice or more to get the desirable result.


Then, after swatches it and waiting for about a minutes, I rub the swatches with my finger. Its need a lil effort to make a result like a pic above. But beside that, the liner is standing still.

In my first impression, I  just feel a lil bit disappointing with the result (especially about the not-black-fine line). 
BUT WAIT.... I'm still curious - its because the beauty advisor said that she wear the eyeliner all day long without any retouch and still need an eye remover to remove the liner. 

Then the day after, I'm trying to use the eyeliner for a day long (not really full whole day, but about 7 hours).

See the picture and you'll be amazed!

This is the POTD I've taken before I go. I'm already using the eyeliner (and as you can see, it's black enough - I swatch it about 3 times)
Left Picture : I've taken right before I go
Right Picture : I've taken about 7 hours later
See what I mean "you'll be amazed"?
I'm using the eyeliner about 7 hours, and there's nothing change, even a smudge!! Its stay just like the first time I'm using it. WOW!

This pic taken after I'm washing my face twice but not using any facial foam - ignore the pore and redness please
And this one taken after I'm washing my face with facial foam - ignore the big pore and redness please
I'm twice surprised with the result! I'm washing my face with water - I just like to washing my face after arrived home - and there's nothing happen with the line. When the eyebrow color, eye shadow color and everything gone, its still stay.

And then after washing it with facial foam, surprisingly that the line are stay still but fade a little bit. Wow, I think I can live with the big diameter for this amazing result ^^

I'm just removing the line using eye's and lips remover. It still need 3 times to fade it away actually. but after that the result is clean.

In summary,I can say a few things about this product

Pros :
1. Definitely stay on and waterproof and smudgeproof for a loong time.
2. The price is not really expensive. Its only IDR 119.000,- for 7ml (and when you have a IDR 100.000,- voucher,the price is only IDR 19.000,- )
3. Easy to use
4. The packaging is small enough so we can just put this on our bag.

Cons :
1. Need more than 1 minutes to 100% drying in order to get the best result (I think it should be about 2 or 3 minutes)
2. Diameter of the applicator is quite big,so it will lil bit difficult to create fine line.

In score,im  happy to announce that Elianto Stay On Liquid Eyeliner is 8 from 10 ^^

So..this is my surprising experience and review of Elianto Stay On Liquid Eyeliner...and how about you?

Review : False Eyelashes from Colourful Shop and RheaPunya Giveaway

Hello...im back in the early of 2014 with a review :)

As we know, at November 2013 Prisilla Gita Lesmana from Ms Rhea has thirdblogversary giveaway. Lucky me, I become one of the winner which got 10 beautiful false eyelashes from Colourful Shop. All of the eyelashes has different style, so lucky me I can make 10 different look and styles with the eyelashes ^^

First, lets see the box and false eyelashes itself..


There are 10 kind of eyelashes, some of them are really long and thick, some are medium and short.
When I take a look closer, I find that each strands are connected with clear strings and at each of its corner there are a few millimeters additional strings. I believe that the additional string on every corners are used to hold the eyelashes when we putting it to our eyes (well that's what i do ^^)

The eyelashes itself are light and comfortable when used. Im not really good in using eyelashes, but the additional string makes me possible to hold the lashes when im putting it to my eyes so the process are more easier. And when im wearing the lashes, its just very comfort and feel like nothing (compare with others, if i'm using an eyelashes I just feel something blocking my views).


Well, I'm not trying all the eyelashes (because it'll takes too looong time to use all of them, and I'm not too impatient to wait..I just want to show my new eyelashes !!) but then I'm picking 4 of them which I think represent the whole.

ignore the color of the string, its darker after i'm using it because of eyeshadow and eyelashes glue :D

This is the shortest eyelashes on the box. Its only about 5 cm long and not too heavy (tebal -  i dunno what its called in English). And because of that, I think this is the most natural eyelashes on the box. I can using it without eyeliner and still natural!


This is what its look alike when I put it in my eyes

the left pic : i'm not using any eyeliner on my eyes.
The right pic : im using eyeliner, but still natural look 
The second lashes I pick are longer than the first, but still not too heavy. I think it can be used daily too, but for a semi-formal occasion because we need more make up to balance she lashes look. But still it can produce natural appearance.



The third eyelashes i'm using is more heavier than the second one, but not more different length. It is suitable for more formal occasion, but still natural.



Then the last eyelashes I've picked, this is the heaviest and more length (only a few from the third actually ^^ #lebay) and if you love dolly look, this is the most suitable eyelashes you can used!
I'm not good enough to create a pretty dolly look on my face, so please focus on the lashes :D




Overall, I really love the eyelashes. The mixed up lashes just make us have more choice for every occasion and use. and the design just make me comfortable when wearing it. Its easy to use too, even the beginner!

You can buy the eyelashes here on Colourful Shop. And also, they sell softlenses too, and there are many variant of lenses, so you can get an eyelashes and a softlens just in time by one click to their web.



Thanks to stop by :)
