D'eyeko Cherrybelle Youth Lashes ~ Love is You [review]

How important false lashes role is? To be honest I'm barely wear false lashes for everyday basis.. I only wear it whenever I put makeup on for blogging purpose :p In real life, I almost never wear false lashes even for special occasion because I tend to prepare myself within short time, therefore I always run out time and at the end I have sufficient time to apply falsie >_< LOL

Seberapa penting sih peran bulu mata palsu bagimu? Jujur aku sih jarang pake bulu mata palsu buat sehari-hari.. Aku hanya memakainya setiap aku dandan untuk urusan blog :p Nyatanya di kehidupan nyata, aku hampir ngga pernah pake bulu mata palsu bahkan untuk acara spesial, karena biasanya aku sering baru mulai dandan mepet waktu dan pada akhirnya ga sempet masang bulmat palsu deh >_< hahaha


Nonetheless, False lashes is a must for complementing a makeup look :)
Have you heard about local false brand named D'eyeko? :D
After satisfied with their Olga Lydia False Lashes series, few days ago I won their giveaway *yay!* in twitter and I got an opportunity to try D'eyeko Cherrybelle Youth Lashes series: Love is You 

Meskipun begitu, bulu mata palsu itu penting banget untuk melengkapi makeup kita :)
Pernah dengar ngga sama brand lokal namanya D'eyeko?
Setelah puas dengan Olga Lydia False Lashes series, beberapa hari lalu aku dapet kesempatan lagi untuk cobain bulu mata mereka yang seri Cherrybelle Youth Lashes: Love is You 

So, let's take a look! ^_^
Descriptions
Bulu mata tebal bervolume ini terlihat unik dengan helai yang jatuh menyamping. Very lovely.
What's not to be loved about you? Put this on, and see how you will love your new look.
Designed by Cherrybelle, made by D'eyeko

Marina 24h Beauty Challenge - Challenge Accepted!

     Hari ini yuk mari bicara soal kesehatan kulit di tubuh :D Sadar atau tidak, aktifitas yang padat dan gaya hidup yang kurang sehat secara tidak langsung telah menyebabkan kelembapan kulit kita berkurang perlahan-lahan.. Karena terlalu sibuk, terkadang kita hanya memperhatikan kulit wajah; dan kulit tangan dan badan pun seringkali luput dari perhatian kita :/ Demikian pula dengan gaya hidup yang tidak sehat (seperti, kurang makan sayur dan buah, kurang olahraga, kurang minum air putih, merokok dst) turut andil dalam menyebabkan kulit kita jadi kering, bersisik, dan kusam.
       Kalo boleh jujur, sebenernya aku termasuk orang yang jarang sekali pake hand & body lotion, bukan karena terlalu sibuk, tapi karena sering kelupaan dan malas >_< *ditabok* Hasilnya yah..bisa ditebak.. Kulit kaki dan tangan sering sekali terasa kering dan sampai bersisik! Kalo udah gini keadaannya, baru deh langsung ambil hand & body lotion biar ngga makin parah -__-"
        Bicara soal hand & body lotion, aku jarang banget beli lotion yang import.. (90% body lotionku itu brand lokal yang bisa didapat dengan mudah di supermarket :D) Selain harganya yang murah, kualitasnya juga ngga kalah kok dengan hand & body lotion yang import.


Nah baru-baru ini aku nyobain Marina Hand & Body Lotion yang Natural 24h Moisturizing, penasaran ngga sih sama variannya Marina yang Natural 24h Moisturizing ini? :D
Oke, mari kita "kenalan" sama variannya satu-satu... ;)

IBB Makeup Challenge February 2014 ~ Summer Fairytale

Hellooo my lovelies!
I present to you my another makeup look for 
Indonesian Beauty Blogger Make Up Challenge February 2014 \(^___^)/
The theme is "Summer Fairytale" and here is my 2nd submission for this current IBB MUC 
My 1st submission was "Anna Frozen Makeup Look Tutorial" :p

Once upon a time~
There is a Summer Flower Goddess in this earth, she is being in duty to guard and maintain the flowers in every flower field especially every Summer. 
She creates flowers and help them grow stronger and prettier day by day.
The only power she owns is love. She loves flower, because they beautify this earth with their presences. She's little bit sad because humankind like to exploit flowers for their own benefit.
Would you help her to guard and maintain flowers in your city? Much better if you plant more flowers in your yard :) Let's guard flowers together with our sincere love

Pasjel Everbright Blue Body Cream [review]

Aloha everyone~ Anyone ever know about Brand named Pasjel? For those of you who are unfamiliar with this brand, Pasjel Cream Care is a famous Skincare & body care products from Thailand. When I first time heard its name, I was like... "Huh? Pastel?" (Indonesian's traditional snack) LOL. 

Pertamanya aku pikir ini merk yang abal-abal loh, ternyata ngga ._. Beneran asli ada dari Thailand dan diimpor langsung oleh Pasjel Indonesia (sekarang berganti nama menjadi Seazonos), hingga kini kita-kita bisa beli langsung dari distributor terpercaya ini :p By the way, Pasjel juga ada fake productnya lho, jadi hati-hati ya.. Inget, beli di online shop yang terpercaya >_<

This time, I got an opportunity to try this Pasjel Everbright Blue ^^ Thank you Seazonos!
Box Packaging
It comes in regular carton box with simple design, yet still attractive. Spot the authentic hologram sticker on the surface? It might can be a indication for every original Pasjel Cream :) CMIIW

Packaging boxnya itu terbuat dari karton biasa dengan desain yang sederahan tapi tetap menarik. Keliatan ngga kalo ada stiker hologram autentik di permukaannya? Bisa jadi itu adalah indikasi dari packaging Pasjel yang original :) kalo ada yg tau info lainnya, tolong kasih tau yaa

Photoshop Beginner: How to Make Photo Products Look Better

As beauty blogger, sometimes we found out that our photos are too dark and needs to be edited before posted on our blog. Nevertheless, we don't know how to make it look better and just add watermark and leave them with that condition, which is supposed to be BIG NO.

Today I will share to you, the most basic photo editing (by using Adobe Photoshop), in order to make our photo products look better with better brightness and better color :D Hopefully this tutorial is helpful enough,

! Attention please !
I use Adobe Photoshop CS6 for this tutorial
Better use a sharp-detailed photo rather than blurred photo :)
Please make sure that your hand isn't shaky while capture a photo, and use right mode (normal or macro)
I always make sure that my photos are clean, and bright enough. What if the photos aren't bright enough?
I always use Photoshop as my weapon to make everything's better ^_^

Here we are, these are example for you. Before and after edited, which one better?
I captured these photos at evening and when I opened the result photos, they're look too dark and absolutely need to be fixed >_<

I always avoid too-dark photos and bad colors, in this tutorial I will show how to fix this ^_^
Of course you need to open your Adobe Photoshop and practice this tutorial with me~

Etude House Precious Mineral BB Cream Bright Fit [review]

Hello again, readers~ Sorry for super delayed review >_< This review is supposedly up last year, but I haven't capture any proper photo of this product yet. Yeah, Hopefully you are still interested to read this review, though it's not a new product of Etude House :p
I present to you, Etude House Precious Mineral BB Cream Bright Fit ^_^
I think this BB cream is upgraded version from the old one, Precious Mineral BB Cream..
You can read my super old review about that BB cream here, I'm super embarrassed when look back to my old review :P LOL.
Packaging
It has same packaging with the previous Precious Mineral BB Cream one, only with logo design. Personally I think the BB Bright Fit logo is simple yet cute :) Still stick to the old design packaging but completed by new logo design. However this BB cream comes with pump dispenser and doesn't easy to spill out

Verile Acne Gel [review]

[Local Product made in Indonesia, review in Bahasa Indonesia]

Pernah jengkel ngga dengan jerawat yang membandel di wajah? *angkat tangan tinggi*
Beberapa minggu yang lalu aku iseng-iseng beli Verile Acne Gel ini ini gara-gara ada jerawat gede nongol di muka -_- dan itu keliatan jelas banget... hahaha >_<

Awalnya sih ngga kepikiran untuk beli produk ini, tapi gara-gara cukup sering liat iklannya di TV, akhirnya terpikir juga untuk beli. Harganya sih murah meriah (sekitar IDR 13.000), makanya kupikir juga ngga ada salahnya mencoba kan ;p

Packaging
Bentuk packagingnya seperti pasta gigi versi kecil, yang gampang dibawa kemana-mana. Desain packagingnya sih ngga terlalu istimewa ya :p didominasi warna putih dan ada logonya Verile.
Aku agak lupa belinya dimana.. kalo ngga salah di Hypermart atau drugstore macam Guardian gitu..

Etude House Silk Scarf Moist Hair Mist [review]

Heyaaa everyone :D I'm back again with another product review from my favorite brand, Etude House
Silk Scarf line is not a new product actually, I believe most of you already know about this line ^_^
I'm gonna share to you my thoughts about Silk Scarf Moist Hair Mist.
Packaging
Etude House's Packaging is barely fails to impress me. This hair mist packaging is so adorable and cute! :3
Dominated with pink color and polkadot pattern, it comes in spray pump cap for easy application.
Its cap itself is quite secure, so I don't need to be worried to bring this one into my purse ;)
Content: 120ml

Packagingnya Etude House itu jarang banget mengecewakan. Packaging hair mist ini pun sangat lucu, ya kan? :3 Didominasi warna pink dan motif polkadot, hair mist ini menggunakan tutup bentuk spray pompa yang gampang digunakan. Tutupnya sendiri pun cukup aman (ngga longgar), jadi aku ngga perlu kuatir saat memasukkan ini dalam tas ;)

Holika Holika Aqua Petit Jelly BB Cream SPF20 PA++ [review]

Helloooo my beloved readers ^.~
Today I'd like to share my current (and my HG) favorite BB cream! XD
Thanks to my lovely friend Rini who has given this BB cream (as giveaway gift) for me ^-^ 
I was eyeing this BB cream since long time ago and finally I could tried it!

As I know, this BB cream has some variants of box and this is the box that I've got from Rini :]
Box Packaging
Dominated with aqua color, with simple yet attractive design. They also kindly gave descriptions in English, so non-Korean can read the descriptions as well :) I'm just wondering why they used white font for the descriptions? It makes the descriptions become hardly readable through camera lens -__-

CANMAKE Powder Cheeks & THE SAEM Eco Earth Calendula SPF50+ [review]

Hello everyone~ I'm back with two reviews in a post! You might wonder why, because each review is quite short, so I think it's better combine these two products in single post, due to efficiency LOL

First product, Canmake Powder Cheeks!
Canmake is a Japanese Cosmetic brand, it has wide range cosmetics and famous in Asia :) I got this blush on long time ago and I always forgot to post the review -.-a
Packaging
The packaging reminds me with Daiso Blush On. It made from transparent plastic material. What a very plain design and not memorable ._. It comes with a brush and it's quite practical to use.

Anna Frozen Inspired Makeup Tutorial [IBB Make Up Challenge February 2014]

Happy Valentine's Day everyoneeee 
Have you read my Valentine's Day Makeup Tutorial? ^__^


Finally I give another try for Indonesian Beauty Blogger's Make Up Challenge this month.. 
I believe my last participation for IBB MUC was on August last year :P  
I decided to join this month IBB MUC because I like the theme & prizes! :3

When the first time I heard about IBB MUC "Summer Fairytale" theme, it instantly reminds me with Anna from Disney's latest animation movie "Frozen". You might wonder HOW COME? 
Well, I love Anna's character.. She's cheerful, warm, brave, lovable and independent :D
If you ask me, which one I prefer? Anna or her sister, Elsa? I can't decide.. because I love them both ^^

While Elsa represents frozen winter, Anna represents warm summer for me! :D 
Especially after she met Olaf The Hilarious Snowman, the feeling of summer becomes stronger in my imagination~ XD

Moire Softlens in Blue [review]

Hello everyone! ^^ Welcome to month of love, February!
If you have read my previous Moire Softlens, you probably know that this softlens is so affordable, easy to be find in nearest optic store and has natural pattern. Actually my relationship with this brand is love-hate relationship. Curious? Read more to find out why

I just went to nearest optic store and found out that this softlens's color attracted me. So I gave another try of this sofltens.. I bought this for around IDR 80.000-90.000
