MAY - Makeup Haul

23:05 Endi Feng 4 Comments

I'm so lucky, got lots of makeup lately. Well, I bought most of them, and got some for free from my friends. So, here I am, hauling the cosmetics that I got.


CHANEL Bronzing Gel  -  ILLAMASQUA Light Liquid Foundaation

CHANEL tinted bronzing gel in Bronze.  This gel is watery, light, and gives me a luminous bronze on my face instantly. All I gotta do is just apply my foundation on, and blend a pea size of this product on the cheeks, jaws, foreheads, temples, ears, and neck.  BUT it kinda contain fumes, so if you're allergic to fragrance, you better skip this. The fumes don't sting though.

ILLAMASQUA light liquid foundation in LF 233.  Light weight, blend effort-not so less-ly, sheer to medium coverage[well, actually you can build it up until to full coverage, in case you want a cakey look in the end of the day]. It's scented with a mild milky smell. LOVE IT! The only foundation that actually match my skin tone. Satin finished touch, but become oily at the end of the day. I better prime my face beforehand next time.  AND a huge THANK to Shelley Suryadarma for the personal purchase. *SMOOCHES*


swatches [OH SO SPECIAL]

SLEEK i-divine "CHAOS"
swatches [CHAOS]

I already said 'au revoir/adios/sayonara/good bye' to my pre-loved Sari Ayu eyeshadows. :')  SO, I bought another eyeshadow palettes! I choose SLEEK, because the eyeshadows are sooo pigmented, with the price range around 150,000 - 170,000 rupiahs.  ANY EYESHADOWS-CRAZE SHOULD HAVE AT LEAST 2 'SLEEK' PALETTES!

OH! SO SPECIAL:  an eyeshadow palette which is BRAVE enough to contain colors from "bare/nude makeup"  to  "glamor night makeup".  The shimmers are subtle, the matte are satin-ly insane, and the black color is like CARBON!

CHAOS:  imagine you're having a chaos colors[like jammed printer] on your eyes. That's what will you get from this palette. It's an all matte eyeshadow, from velvety to satin finish look.  They are pigmented like crazy. You think I'm exaggerating? LOOK at the swatches! I don't even apply eyeshadow primer/foundation on my hands before I swatch them.

SHOULD I give any reason NOT to LOVE these palette? Umm.. Nah.. Don't have any. 


URBAN DECAY(Score), NYX Mosaic Powder(Hi-lighter), MULTI CHEEK, SILKYGIRL(Sunny Glow), UD Afterglow(Quickie), ILLAMASQUA(Hussy)

NYX, Multi Cheek, Hussy, Quickie, Score, SilkyGirl duo shimmering blush

NYX Mosaic Powder, hi-lighter.  Since the first time I lay my eyes on this product, I was like: "WHOA! What a nice hi-lighter IF I got fair skin with cool undertone."  SO, my advise, runaway from this if you got warm skintone, because it can cause ashy effect on your cheeks.

Multi Cheek blushes. Got it from my tweefellas, @moonlichan. Well, actually she sent me A LOT of her pre-loved makeups(the NYX, Multi Cheek, UD Afterglow are from her). And I adopt 'em like my babies. Thank you, Lidia.. *HUGS n KISSES*  This Multi Cheek blush are shimmering brown. Love it to accentuate more glow/dimension after I apply my CHANEL bronzing gel.

ILLAMASQUA Powder Blush in Hussy.  It's matte bright PINK blush. It's a pretty pink! It stays put for a looong time like OMAIGAAAAT!  Other blushes prolly stays on my cheeks for 3-4 hours, and fade out. But this one, it can last for 6-8 hours on me before it fade out.  MAGIC!

Urban Decay Afterglow Glide-on Cheek Tint in QUICKIE.  OOOH, I love the name of this blush already! LOL  It's a long lasting cheek tint, with a subtle neon-pink color.  Not a huge fan of bright pink blushes, but this one is an exceptional. TOTALLY!

Urban Decay Powder Blush in Score.  Goldish peach color, with a hint of pink. I really love this on my cheeks when I apply bronzer on my face. It gives a natural glow on the cheeks, temples, and chin IF you have a tan/bronze skin.  And I still got the theory where tan/bronze skin are best hi-light with golden blush or hi-lighter.

SILKYGIRL Duo Shimmering Blush in Sunny Glow.  Well, the colors are not so sunny. BUT if you apply it on your tan/bronze skin, it appears as nice glowing pink color. If you apply it on your fair skin, it appears as peachy pink color. It fades quite quick, around 2-3 hours. And it can be a nice hi-light on any skin tone[well, not ebony skintone, it'll become ashy].  I got this from Catra Samoedro. Thank you, Catra...

So, girls. Those are my new members of my beauty case.  If you guys want to know where I got my SLEEK eyeshadow palettes, GO TO WWW.MAKEUPTOOLSHOP.COM
OK, bye now.  See you pretties on the next post, maybe?  *kuss kuss*

HADA LABO Moisturising Lotion

18:22 Endi Feng 5 Comments

Last April, my tweefellas, Ranny, went to Thailand for a family vacation.  Her livetweets when she's in Thai were envious!  Wanna go there too!  And, she came up with a tweet that said, Hada Labo's moisturizing lotion is so cheap out there.  Shamefully, I replied to her that I want one! LOL
AND, she sent me one, as a present from Thai.  OMG! She's so nice, even though we haven't met yet.  THANK YOU, RANNY!

Hada Labo  moisturising lotion

So, I have been using this lotion for almost a month.   The changes that I can feel is my face become so moist, soft, supple, and hydrated.  On the packaging, it says this lotion, 1 sold every 4 seconds in Japan!  
What's the active ingredient in this lotion then, that makes this lotion is sooo famous?  It's  SUPER HYALURONIC ACID.  SHA keep the skin hydrated, & smooth for a long period of time.  The lotion contains Nano Hyaluronic Acid, & Hyaluronic Acid as well.  With these 3 types of Hyaluronic Acid, this lotion deeply moisturize skin, and helps preserve its optimum moisture balance.

The best part of this product is, it's pH balanced, and  free of fragrances, mineral oils, alcohol, & colorant.  With the watery texture, it absorbs into the skin easily with patting motion.  After applying this lotion, I continue applying Vaseline men moisturizer.  This lotion gives a silky smooth base for my moisturizer application.  LOOOVE!

IF you got the chance to have this product, go for it!  We still don't have any retail that sold Hada Labo skincare in Indonesia.  HERE's a tip,  deposit 7 drops on your palm,  dab it on the face [on the large areas],  rub your 2 hands,  smooth out the lotion on the face to the neck with your hands, and pat it slowly until it drys out.

GIRLS(and guys)! If any of you have had experiences with Hada Labo products, lemme know!



Givenchy Beauty Event - MAY 2012

21:30 Endi Feng 4 Comments

On 5th of May, I was invited to a beauty event hosted by Givenchy.  I was late when I arrived at the venue.  The girls from IBB(Indonesian Beauty Blogger) community were already there, and had tried some of the products, and still queuing to have their facial skin checked.  While they're waiting for the skin check routine, I decided to get me a make up session with one of the BA.  

First, I got my face cleaned, because I've applied bronzing gel from home.  Then followed by facial spray, and eye serum(PS: when the BA applied the eye serum, she massaged my brow bone, the outer edge of the eyes, and the under eyes, she said it helps the serum work more effective).  After the eye area, my face was applied with face serum & moisturizer. Without blotting or let the moisturizer set to the skin, the BA continue with applying "photo perfexion light" fluid foundation #2 on the center face, & #6 on the rest of the face. I LOOOVE the foundation! It gives my skin a light sheer, with light-weight feel, where you won't feel like you're wearing a mask when you put it on. The she set my face with prism loose powder.  Just FYI, I love the Givenchy brushes!!  No kidding, if I can have 'em, I'll go for the powder brush, and the buffing brush.

The skincare products & makeup I used on the event

While I was getting my makeup done, I chat with the Givenchy's representative. She's so nice to explain to me each product that the BA putted on my face.  And she said that the 'photo perfexion light' fluid foundation is the latest item which enter in Givenchy Indonesia.  Despite of its great light-weight feel, I'll reconsider to buy them. Even I have put on the dark shade (#6), my face still appearing pink-ish on pictures[I'm having a yellow tone skin].  Wish it comes with a larger range of shade.

After all, Givenchy skin care is the next thing that I would like to try next time.  It gives me glow, and the moist that I love.  SO, SO...  Go give it a try, Givenchy can be found at SOGO Mall Kelapa Gading, & Seibu Grand Indonesia.
