Review: Make Over Blush

Today I will introduce you with my new blushes from Make Over. This is a local brand *FYI*, I don't really use local brand when it comes to cosmetic *It's not that I hate it, I just usually fell in love with the packaging so I ended buy Korean cosmetics instead of local brand hahaha*. I heard about this brand for quite long time ago, I also have some stuffs from this brand (eyeliner, foundation, and eyeshadow). But today I will talk about the blush first.

Packaging: Make Over packaging is always all black with the huge "MAKE OVER" words on its packaging. The shape is rectangular and to open the packaging, I need to push the center of the cap. Inside, there is a small brush to apply the blush. Despite the cheap look, the bristles are quite soft. But it is very small and I don't use it, because I prefer big brush to apply my blush.

Move forward, there is a wide mirror which make me very happy. Mostly my blush doesn't comes with mirror and even though some of them do have a mirror on its packaging, it is only a small one and I can't really see my face huhuhu.

Now my problem is here~ judging the packaging from the outside, I expect the amount of the blush as big as the packaging. Turns out the amount is only half of the packaging because the other half is for the brush. hikz. If only they make it as big as the mirror, I will not have any complain!

Texture: The texture of the blush is quite buttery. It is not very powdery and as long as you swept it gently, the dust will not fly everywhere. The color is very pigmented *I'm warning you~* no need to go mad and swipe so many times *this is happen with Korean brands* because only 1 swipe *and sometimes I need to blew a little* will make your cheek colourfull~

I have 2 different shades. The first one is pink fantasy. I know it looks so scary on the packaging. You'll see the bright pink color, but once it applied on the skin, the color is very beautiful.

Second one is Coral, This one is my favourite. When I feel it is a little bit too much to use pink color *Yes, sometimes I feel pink is too bright for me* I always run to this blush. The warm orange color never failed to make my face looks brighter.

Now for the price: It is IDR 75.000/pc and the amount is around 6 gr. I must say the price is very affordable for the great quality. Another blush that makes me fell in love with the color is Illamasqua but the price is quite expensive for some people, so this is a great deal if you want a pigmented blush with affordable price.

Pros: Sturdy Packaging, Wide Mirror, Soft Bristles for the Brush, Pigmented Color, Affordable, Local Brand.

Cons: Small brush, The blush amount is half-size of the packaging.

My Favourite? Yes!

Review: The Hot Shop Lip Crayon by Born Pretty Store [Sponsored]

This time I will write a review about a lip crayon from Born Pretty Store called the Hot Shop. This post should be up last year, but I didn't received my products for almost 4 months, that's why I can only write this post now. Blame the Indonesia custom, they held my package for months without any reason. sigh. Luckily Alicia from BPS is very nice. She offered me a new product to review and wait patiently for my review *thank you~*

Now, after like forever I'm waiting for my package, last week, it finally arrived with a lot of struggles *I will skip the long process because it maybe boring to read*. The one that arrived was the first package that BPS sent to me, which is this cute lip crayon.

Now let's begin the review~

Packaging: The packaging is like an automatic pencil. But this one is a huge one. The main color is mint color with black dots and stars on the lower packaging. To use it, simply twist the bottom of the pen.

Swatch: My shade is number #11. It is a red color with shimmer. Born Pretty Store has many color variants for this lipstick (12 colors) and all of them are so pretty. I even had a hard time to choose the shade when the first time they contacted me.

The texture is silky and creamy. It glides on easily on my lips and the color is quite pigmented. It doesn't has any scent and also doesn't makes my lips dry. I was very impressed with the quality.

My opinion:
I was quite confused with this product. It is stated as lip crayon. In my opinion, lip crayon is the same with lipstick, only the packaging is different. Because this one is on pencil packaging. But, when I use this lip crayon, I think the formula is similar to a lipbalm but with very pigmented color. And also after I try it, it feels really moisturising and lightweight on my lips. The staying power is also good for hours. But please note, this lip crayon isn't kiss-proof. When I drink my water, it transfers to the glass. This lip crayon now become one of my favourite lipstick. You know I always have a little problem with lipstick. Sometimes, I want to wear red lipstick but bold red is just to much, also I want something glossy on my lips but lip gloss feels super sticky on my lips *I own zero lipgloss FYI, because I hate the sticky things on my lips*, this is the best answer for my problem. I love the red color *the shimmers are hardly noticeable* and also the glossy effect from this "pigmented-lip-balm-in-crayon-shape". I only owned few lipstick with glossy effect *mostly my lipsticks are matte* and this one definitely a GOOD ONE! Thank you Alicia for introducing to this little baby~

Moo Moo~

Hello everyone~ How are you today? I'm down with flu hikz. Runny nose, sore throat and headache. What a perfect combination! I want to do a new make up look and also review some beauty products, but my body won't let me. So, today I will share a simple thing that I can do with this condition. And the answer is~~~ tadaaa~ a nail art!

I remember an old song from my childhood, maybe some of you also knew about this song?

"Old MacDonald had a farm~
E I E I oooo
And on his farm he has a cow
E I E I oooo"

Today's theme is a Cow! Actually I can't make difficult nail art so I just stick with simple creation like this one. This is very easy and you don't need special tools to make this creation.

For this nail creations, I used these products: 

The Face Shop White Nail Polish
Etude House Fashion Queen Line - Black
Shara Shara Pop Ping gel nail
Ellianto Top Coat
Dotting tools

So I started with the base. I used White color from The Face shop. And then draw half of my nails with pink color (this is acts as the mouth). Using dotting tools (or bobby pins/toothpicks or anything that can make a dot), make a dot with black color for the eyes, nose, and ear. I only draw 2 cow's face on my nails, and for the rest of my nails, I simply make dots with black color. It reminds me of the cow's body. Finish it with Top coat and Here are the result!

Although it is messy, I think it is quite cute. hahahaha. What do you think?

New Year!

Happy new year everyone!

I know it's quite late to say happy new year, but this is my first post in 2015 so I still want to greet you with happy new year. I'm sorry for my gloomy feeling on my last post, I just can't control my emotion at that time and I need something to release my anger so I write it on my blog. Thanks to Ce Mindy for talking to me during that hard time *I really really appreciate it ce, hug2*

Anyway~ enough of the sad story. I will back to my old job as beauty blogger. Like usual, I want to renew my blog every new year. This year I hope I can post more make up look rather than only products review. I hope I can do it. I also hope I can post more often, sigh, life been so hectic these days, so I'm sorry if I kind of neglect this blog.

To start this new year, I want to share my make up look in this post. I'm really bad when it comes to give a name for everything, sometimes I really envy people who can named their post/creations with a very attractive name hahahaha. Anyway, let's just call this look as New Year Make Up.

Here are what I used for this look~

Kiehls Blue Herbal Moisturizer
The Face Shop Cushion Screencell CC Cream
Aritaum Perfect Concealer
The Body Shop Tea Tree BB Cream
Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder
Lorac Tantalizer
Make Over Blush 

Make Over Eye shadow
Holika Holika Jewel Light Waterproof Gel Eyeliner
Etude House Drawing Eyebrow
NYX Brow Powder
Unbranded False eyelashes

Maybelline Baby Lips Lipbalm
Aritaum Honey Melting Tint

So, I blend the Silver and grey color from the Make Over Eyeshadow and apply it on all over my eyelids. After that I use black eyeshadow for the crease and finish it with black eyeliner. It's hard to see the eyeshadow when I open my eyes because I have monolids but I'm quite proud with the result when I close my eyes *lol*

Final Look~

That's all for today :) thanks for reading

Last post for 2014

2 more sleeps before new year. Like always, I'm very excited when it comes to December, but unfortunately this year is the exception. There are some sad news (even though I also got many good news this month). 

Betrayal. I thought I only read this word in a book. But now when I experience it by myself, it hurts really bad. People said that I think too much. Indeed I think too much. I admit it. It is one of my positive and also negative point. I wish I'm an ignorant person so I don't really feel this bad. But, in the end I still can't deny this. It hurts so bad. They said time will heal everything. I agree. But I also agree that the scar will also there forever.

But they said, you learn something when you fall. Yes, I learn... don't expect something too much. Because everything that too much will hurt you so much.

2 more sleeps and I hope I can forget everything when I step into the new year. 2014...It's been a good year but I hope next year will be better.
