The Face Shop Make Me Star Waterproof Gel Liner in 02 Choco Latte & 07 Peach Shower Review

Hi, belles!

This time, I'm going to talk about one of my beauty essentials which is eyeliner!

Etude House Like 20 All Day Cream Pact Review

Hi, belles!

FINALLY! My first review after an unreasonably long hiatus! I just found it so hard to write things and take pictures and so I ended up neglecting this blog so sorry ;__; but one day, I just finally felt the need to make a comeback and here I am now! :)

Anyway, let's move onto the product. I didn't buy this particularly in purpose because it came in a package with the eye concentrate that I reviewed before and so I didn't have any choice but to also buy it.

This is a pact type Cream Finisher that quickly and conveniently moisturizes and nourishes, protecting skin for natural, radiant, healthy-looking skin.

[Directions] After makeup: With enclosed puff, dispense a certain amount and dab lightly onto areas that need extra moisture. Effective for fixing makeup with its moisturizing properties.
Before makeup: With enclosed spatula. pick up certain amount onto finger and spread from inner to outer areas of face. Apply additional layer onto dry areas. Effectively covers up pores for smooth complexion.

And after receiving it, I just didn't know what to do with this.........

It's called cream pact, but it looks more like balm. Just like the eye concentrate, the main ingredients are ceramide and murumuru oil. Definitely a no for my normal/oily face. But on some times, I tried to put it on my face as a base focusing on the center area where I got visible pores there, and it didn't work. So on other times, I just put it on my upper cheek to add more glow. My upper cheek area is normal so I'm fine putting this product there.

The thing is I'm not so into this product. I have oily skin and visible pores and when I use something to cover the pores, I also expect a good oil-control, but the main function of this production is not to give you any oil-control. It feels soft upon first application, but then it starts to feel greasy and heavy. And so I'm not using this anymore. (I'm planning on putting this on my blog sale, anyone interested?)

It comes with an extra puff and spatula (it's taped behind the puff so that I don't lose it lol). The applicator is just like any standard puff. I never used such kind of puff before so I didn't know whether it was good or not sorry~

See the difference? It definitely adds glow to your skin.

All in all, I see this product as more of a balm-type than cream-type and I don't find it useful for me. This product would be more useful if I had dry skin, while I'm actually not. For you all readers who have dry/very dry skin probably will love it. It also comes in a compact which also makes it easier to carry around. So yeah, like I said before I'm going to sell it. Stay tune for a blog sale yeay!

Volume  :7g
Price      : original price 15000 KRW (I got it at a cheaper price fyi)
I’d give this 2 out of 5.

Friday, October 24, 2014 asks: what's on your wishlist?

Holla, belles!

I (pretend to) have some free time and so I decide to join Beauty Box Challenge! This challenge is held by an e-commerce site, people say, but it's simply an online shopping mall based in Indonesia collaborating with Indonesian Beauty Blogger and Dreamers Radio.

I was contemplating at first whether to use Bahasa Indonesia or English because well, it's a challenge held by an Indonesian site, but then all my posts are in English. And I decided to just go with English because I wanted to share my current wishlist to all the readers, and most importantly, WHY were those things on my wishlist.

An Excuse Post

Okay, I'm not going to write any more excuses. Basically, I am busy with uni and when I had some free time, I was just lazy to post anything sorryyy ;___;

There are actually many posts sitting on the draft and I also have many things that I just bought and need to be reviewed, but my camera is broken and......... #procrastinatorsproblem......

Anyway, the song above is one of many things that I enjoy lately. So yeah, I post this just to tell you that I am still alive and that I changed this blog's template (again and again) because I was bored with the previous one.

Let's hope that I'd get some free time later and have some spirit to type and post.
