Biore Make Up Remover Cleansing Oil Sheet

*this post is written in Bahasa

Setelah capek beraktivitas seharian, pasti deh pengen langsung naik ke atas kasur dan tidur sampai pagi. Enak banget, memang. Tapi.... jadi nyesel deh kalau tiba-tiba pas bangun besok paginya langsung muncul jerawat di wajah kita. Membersihkan wajah dari segala makeup dan kotoran yang sudah menempel seharian memang mau nggak mau harus kita lakukan. Tapi, kadang males banget harus pergi ke wastafel buat cuci muka, belum juga kalau harus pake makeup remover yang macem-macem jenisnya.

Therefore, cleansing sheets will always be a perfect option to a lazy girl like me.
So, this time I want to share my opinions about my first cleansing sheet, Biore Make Up Remover Cleansing Oil Sheet.

Etude House Kissful Lip Care Concealer

Sorry for the long hiatus.. been very very busy lately (and honestly, I'm one of the worst procrastinator in the world).. but finally I'm back!
... for another review. This time I want to share my thoughts about Etude House Kissful Lip Care Concealer.

First thing first.. What is lip concealer...?

Lip concealer, hence the name, is concealer for the lips. Regular concealers are helpful in other areas of the face, but these products are generally not intended for use on your lips since your skin tone is different in that area
Lip concealer can be used for : 
  • Help to minimize dark areas on and around your mouth, as well a s reduce redness associated with blemishes.
  • Can be used as a primer for lipsticks. Applying lip concealers prior to lipstick can make the shade brighter and truer to the color shown on the product’s package. 
  • Can help a lipstick color stay in place longer and avoid creasing or feathering.
These concealers come in a variety of styles, from traditional sticks to liquid versions. A solid lip concealer is similar in appearance and texture to a chapstick, and is less messy during use. At the same time, liquid concealers are often preferred if you only need to touch up a small area of the lips, as they sometimes come with a small applicator.

So! Let's move on to the review.

Hello again.


Sorry for a month hiatus.. been super busy these days. Since I work at Indonesian Ministry of Finance, I must took Diklat Prajabatan, a kind of job training, with extra addition of military conscription (wajib militer) with Komando Pasukan Khusus (Kopassus) from Indonesian national army, for 3 weeks straight.
For that damn 3 weeks me and my friends must survive from hot weather, sun rays, inhuman extra large food portion.. and also push up, sit up, running, crawling, creeping and other military stuffs. PLUS, we must took Final Exam with 12 different subjects (like nationalism, team building, management, etc.) at the end of the training period.

My class. 2H.
With the gank.
Really miss you, guys!

I enjoyed that 3 weeks actually (minus the sunburn that I got), because I met new friends, and they're all awesome.


PS. Sorry for nagging too much. I promise there will be more beauty related post. Stay tune! ;)

Vegan, Animal Cruelty Free and Halal Makeup

Nowadays, along with the increasing of human concern for nature and all its contents, there are also a lot of campaign about Vegan and Animal Cruelty Free products.  

Saturday, 26 April 2014


From Disney comes "Maleficent"—the untold story of Disney's most iconic villain from the 1959 classic "Sleeping Beauty." A beautiful, pure-hearted young woman, Maleficent has an idyllic life growing up in a peaceable forest kingdom, until one day when an invading army threatens the harmony of the land. Maleficent rises to be the land's fiercest protector, but she ultimately suffers a ruthless betrayal—an act that begins to turn her pure heart to stone. Bent on revenge, Maleficent faces an epic battle with the invading king's successor and, as a result, places a curse upon his newborn infant Aurora. As the child grows, Maleficent realizes that Aurora holds the key to peace in the kingdom—and perhaps to Maleficent's true happiness as well. source

I couldn't be any happier. 
As expected from my fave actress, Angelina Jolie, and my fave musician, Lana Del Rey.
Eerily beautiful.


"Maleficent" opens in UK cinemas on Wednesday May 28, 2014.
Are you going to watch Maleficent?

Because I mainly blog about beauty and fashion, sekarang aku akan membahas lebih lanjut tentang kosmetik Korea. Ya, salah satu hal yang sangat aku sukai dari demam Korean wave ini adalah makeup style mereka. Ya, Korea terkenal dengan makeup yang cantik namun tetap natural dan wearable.

CLIO Gelpresso Glow Tint #4 Orange Wedges

I always have tendency to buy lip products, all of them, especially the orange / peach / brown colored ones. They are like guilty pleasures to me. So, yeah. This is another review of lip product, my newest baby, CLIO Gelpresso Glow Tint in shade #4 Orange Wedges.

CLIO Gelpresso Glow Tint was released before CLIO Lipnicure, but it has gone unnoticed (I think that's because all the hype caused by the lipnicure). I bumped into this when CLIO had a massive sale (up to 50%) on their korean website.

"GFC is not working?" How to (temporarily) Fix Current GFC' Issues

Some of you may already know about the issues about Google Friend Connect (GFC) that keeps saying "We're sorry.. We were unable to handle your request. Please try again or return a bit later." if you want to follow blogger based blogs via GFC. I heard that the Google team already aware about this issue and currently working to fix it. But, I think you all want to follow any blogs that you want to follow as soon as possible, and you don't want to wait any longer for the team to fix it. (impatient woman is impatient, lol)

Just follow these instructions below.

1. Click "Join this Site" and then click "More options" in the pop-up window. 

2.Next, click the "Follow" button.

3. And, you're done!

I've tried this method recently, and it (seems to be) worked.
Well this is only a temporary method to solve this issues, so I hope the google team can fix the GFC as soon as possible.

*UPDATE* My fellow blogger, Mitch, gave me another trick to fix this issue: go to the dashboard and find "add" at the reading list section then type the URL of the blog that you want to follow. Thank you Mitch! ^^


Hope this helps. Enjoy your weekend!

3W CLINIC Intensive UV Sunblock Cream SPF 50+/PA+++

Protecting our skin against harmful UV rays is definitely a must. UV rays can make our skin age faster, apart from skin cancer, freckles, etc. There are no windows or clothes that can protect us against the UV. Even on cloudy days, apparently 40% of it can still reach us.
I always have a love hate relationship with sunblocks. They do wonders on your skin, but they also left some white cast. And I do not want to look like a ghost. Higher SPF sunblocks tend to left more visible white cast, so I avoided higher SPF and only used max SPF30 sunblocks. But I'm that type of person that too lazy to reapply sunblocks all the time. So, when I found 3W CLINIC Intensive UV Sunblock Cream SPF 50+/PA+++, I quickly purchased it without any further thinking.
Here's my review after using this sunblock for a month.

Note: 3W CLINIC is a Korean makeup brand and you might be unfamiliar with this brand since it's difficult to find outside Korea.

Oscars 2014 Red Carpet

Oscars 2014. Everybody seems talked about it all the time ...well, including me!
Here are my own best dressed list and Oscars' hair and makeup inspirations.

Cate Blanchett in Armani Prive - Jennifer Lawrence in Dior - Jenna Dewan-Tatum in Reem Acra

Sandra Bullock in Alexander McQueen, Kate Hudson in Atelier Versace, Amy Adams in Gucci


This year is about looking gorgeous without too much colors in makeup, just smooth and clear complexion. Jenna Dewan-Tatum and Jessica Biel looks so natural yet stunning with their simple eye makeup and nude lips. Classy combination that never fails! If you want to give a bit of drama, soft smoky eyes like Angelina Jolie's is definitely a good idea!

Nude natural lips are always a savvy, but if you want to look more intense (and we all know makeup play doesn't have any boundaries), just put on your bold lipstick and you're good to go!

And talk about hairstyles, a classic updo like Olivia Wilde and Camila Alves' is always the best opt in formal occasions. A simple braid like Maria Menounos will do too! Add accessories like a simple flower hair clip for extra twist.

We don't always have much time to do our hair, right? Especially on busy days. But, who said that simple hairdo can't be as gorgeous as a classic updo? Our darlings Jennifer Lawrence and Anne Hathaway can be perfect inspirations for your short hair. (I always envy people that can pull off pixie/short haircut. Always.)
Or if you have longer hair, a simple and sleek hairstyle like Naomi Watts' will always be a great option.

Phew, what a lot of eye candies!
Hope this can inspire you :)

PS. Don't forget about this powerful couples, too 


How about your best dressed list and fave makeup looks on Oscars 2014?

Thus, today I want to share with you about my favorite blush now, theBalm Long Wearing Staining Powder Blush Instain, or for short, theBalm Instain Blush, in Swissdot.

f(x) Pink Tape Art Film

"Love exists but with an absence of eternity.
At the first moment of a lovers encounter, there's an affirmation of love.
Psychologically lunacy, emptiness, panic, delusion that the moment will last forever..
I'm seized by the desire. I hide behind my back... And postpone all answers."

Holika Holika Petit BB Cream Watery SPF 25 PA++

In terms of makeup and skincare, BB creams are always one of my favorite because they can cover your skin imperfections yet still have many benefits for your skin. Those properties make them very convenient, perfect for daily use. Another thing with BB Creams is that you can actually use only the BB Cream and your skin will instantly look better.
I already tried some BB Creams, most of them are Etude and Skinfood's, but this is the first time I try Holika Holika's.
Please keep reading to know my reviews about this Holika Holika Petit BB Cream in Watery SPF 25 PA++.

Red Valentino Spring 2014 Ready-To-Wear Collection

Inspired by "a sense of wonder and curiosity," for this season Pierpaolo Piccioli and Maria Grazia Chiuri amazed me with their whimsical, fanciful designs. Tutu skirts and mini dresses, bows and embroideries, remind me of innocent ballerina with a splash of sensualism, thanks to the enormous flower prints.
Playful yet still beautiful with a little mature touch, this collection certainly appealing, presenting a perfect spring outfit. Definitely a fave!
