The Face Shop BB Power Perfection Cushion V203 Review

Hello, welcome back to my blog. So, today I will do a review about bb cushion, which I’ve only done one review so far.
Since I got some cushions now, I will do a review one by one after a few months of use.

This one, as I typed it down on the title, is a Korean brand named The Face Shop, this brand is quite famous, so most of beauty junkies usually quite familiar with this brand. It cost me around 14 dollars.

Okay, so here’s the look of the classic packaging (which is the thing that draw my attention and made me buy it 😁).

image

Glossy black and gold colour (yeah, glossy, fingerprints everywhere), I think the material is still plastic but somehow looks more sturdy than any other cushion with plastic material, and this one is slightly heavier too.

image

It is replaceable refill, a bit bulky, not as thin as Innisfree or Etude House cushion (the newer versions).
I bought this around 15 dollars, in shade V203 which is the darkest, BUT… apparently this shade is still a bit too light on light-medium skintone. There’s also a bit of greyish undertone to it.

image

Nice and sleek, love the mirror too. It feels luxurious when I hold it.
If the pale yellow part inside is changed into a gold colour like the outer part, it will be more luxurious than ever.

image

Oh, wait, now come to think of it, it looks like the outer part is also using other material other than plastic, slightly metal I guess, maybe that’s why it feels a bit heavy.

image

This is the product, looks like it’s a dark beige colour? Nope, it’s because of the lighting with yellow tone to it, so the result is a bit different than the real one. Sorry for that, but if I didn’t use that lamp, the picture looks awful with those low light and stuffs.

image

Now to the product, it brightens, it gives glow, but a bit pale-looking-skin.
I usually use it on my neck too since it’s lighter than my skintone.

Coverage is sheer to medium, doesn’t really cover dark acne scars or dark circles, or even eye bags (as you can see on a pictures below).

image

image

Staying power is long enough in a room temperature, but if I’m sweating quite a lot, when I blot it with tissue, quite a lot of products transfer (even when I set it with powder after applying makeup).

Pros:
+ Classic, pretty, elegant, luxurious packaging.
+ Affordable price.
+ Quite easy to find.
+ Staying power is quite good.

Cons:
– The shade option is very limited and mostly too light.
– The packaging is a bit heavy and bulky compare to other cushion.
– Slightly greyish undertone.
– Transfer quite much when sweating.

That’s all for my review, hope you guys find it useful.
Thanks for reading.

Nivea Lip Balm Essential Care / Original Care

Hello guys, apa kabar semuanya?

Lama hiatus nih, hehe, by the way kalian dulu pernah nyobain Nivea Lip balm yang biru essential itu kan?

Nah beberapa waktu lalu aku beli lagi yang keluaran sekarang, seingatku lip balm ini sempet hilang dari peredaran gitu, yang mejeng di rak biasanya cuma yang versi buah-buahan aja.

Check my old review

right here guys!!

Setelah eksis kembali di pasaran, kubeli deh si biru ini (bukan si api biru yang idola para ibu itu ya).

Harganya sekarang kalo nggak salah sekitar 27 ribu atau 30 ribu.

image

Versi lama tulisannya Essential Care, versi baru tulisannya Original care.

Setelah kuperhatikan pekejingnya, kok agak beda tulisannya.

Kulihat bagian dalamnya (produknya) juga tidak terlalu milky white seperti dulu, bagian tengahnya kayak agak kekuningan melingkar gitu.

image

Setelah kucoba beberapa minggu, soal efektifnya masih sama seperti versi yang lama, namun yang versi baru ini stick lip balmnya ga gampang lembek, kalau yang versi lama kan baru seminggu dua minggu langsung benyek miring jembret sana sini.

Mungkin kapan hari ketika hiatus, pihak R&D Nivea sedang merumuskan formula baru kali ya supaya ga mudah benyek (maaf jika saya nebak-nebak, hahaha).

Jumlah berat netto nya masih sama, 4.8 gram / 5 ml. Mudah dioles ke bibir, melembabkan bibir dengan baik, mudah dan nyaman untuk dibawa-bawa karena ukurannya kecil dan bobotnya ringan.

image

Biasanya aku pakai malam sebelum tidur dan beberapa saat sebelum pakai make up.

Overall, it works really well, I love it, I do still like it like I used to be. Akan repurchase saat sudah habis.

Sekian review singkat dari saya.

Semoga bermanfaat dan berfaedah.

Thanks for reading.

Crystal Body Deodorant Roll-On

image

Hey guys, this time my review is about deodorant. I’ve tried this product back in 2013 as I remember. I usually have a bad relationship with deodorant that I bought in minimarket or supermarket, but this one is different, it doesn’t irritate my skin, reduce and neutralize body odor without leaving any stain on clothes.

image

Cruelty free, save for sensitive skin, and Endorsed by Cancer Treatment Centers.
It claims that it’s using mineral salt.

image

They have 3 types, solid rock, roll-on, and spray.
The variants are original (purple), pomegranate (red), lavender & white tea (blue/dark purple), chamomile & green tea (yellow), and vanilla jasmine (green).
It cost around 10 dollars for 66ml.

image

My favourite is the Original, no scent. I usually use it after having a shower, wait until it dries on my skin and then use my clothes.
I also wipe the excess around the roll-on to prevent the “flakiness” of the product around it.

CRYSTAL Deodorant Roll On

DESCRIPTION
No Aluminum Chlorohydrate
Natural Protection
Hypoallergenic

SUGGESTED USE
Must be applied to clean skin.

OTHER INGREDIENTS

_____________________

The red pomegranate smells a bit fruity, a bit citrus-y (?), I don’t really like this smell, but it works well though.

OTHER INGREDIENTS
Purified water (aqua), potassium alum (natural mineral salts), natural fragrance made with essential oils and extracts, cellulose, sodium bicarbonate, benzoic acid, zinc gluconate.

______________________

The blue-purple lavender smells like palm fruit (in my country it’s called “kolang kaling”).
I love the scent, not so strong, the scent is quite relaxing.

Crystal essence Lavender & White Tea, made of natural mineral salts and infused with relaxing aromas of lavender and white tea, creates an invisible protective barrier against odor-causing bacteria. Lavender, known as an anti-inflammatory and white tea, as a natural relaxant, please rather than overpower the senses. Crystal essence is long-lasting, non-sticky, non-staining and leaves no white residue.

OTHER INGREDIENTS
Purified water (aqua), potassium alum (natural mineral salts), natural fragrance made with essential oils and extracts, cellulose, sodium bicarbonate, benzoic acid, zinc gluconate.

WARNINGS
No animal testing

________________________

I want to try other variants too, the yellow and green.

I’ve tried the solid rock one before but I don’t really like it because I have to wet the top of it before apply it on my skin, and when I drop it, it cracked, turn into sharp rock, so it’s impossible for me to use it again.

The spray version can be use for feet (deodorant for feet), or for smelly shoes.

You can check their website www.thecrystal.com

That’s all for my review, hope you guys find it useful.

Catrice Absolute Eye Colour 920 Game of Stones

Makeup Review!! 🙂

It’s a brand from Germany named Catrice. I’ve tried their brow pencil, brow powder and highlighter (?) pencil too, I haven’t review it , I only did review on their primer and bronzer Catrice Bronzer and Primer, I might do it later, but now I want to do a review about their matt(e) single eyeshadow.

image

Love the name, remind me to HBO movie series Game of Thrones 😍.
As I remember, most of the single eyeshadows are matte, or maybe all of them are matte (not sure).

I got this on drugstore around 4 dollars, so affordable 😘.

image

image

The reason I choose this shade is because I want to use it for my eyebrows and also for my lashline (I’m not so into eyeliner, they’re too bold and sometimes expired easily and my eyes just can’t handle that).

image

It’a cool toned gray/grey, a bit of ash in it. For brows or contour, cool tone suits me better, but for foundation and lip colour, warm tone suits me better.

The texture a bit chalky if I rub it too much, so I usually build it up until the desire amount of opacity.
It is quite pigmented, but not as pigmented as Wet n Wild Comfort Zone Palette

image

image

I use double ended Crown Brush to do my brows with it, glide on and build up easily, and then brush it with spoolie to make it look more natural. Sometimes I put brow mascara on top to keep it stay in place all day (of course without naughty fingers rubbing the brows throughout the day 😚).

That’s all for my quick review.
Hope you guys find it useful.

The Balm and LT Pro Liquid Lip Colour Matte

Hello. How are you guys in this May? May all the good things come to your life ☺.

Okay, now back to the topic. I haven’t reviewing any liquid lipstick/lip matte before (eventho I only have two), but anyway I want to give review about the products.

image

The first one I have is The Balm Meet Matt(e) Hughes in shade Committed. I got this around 15 dollars.

The second one is a local brand LT Pro Long Lasting Matte Lip Cream in shade number 5. I got this as a birthday gift from my sister.
As I knew the price is around 7 dollars.

image

image

image

The Balm have a creamy texture and will set into a matte finish after around 15 seconds (more or less).
The scent is a sweet cookie or candy (not sure, but it is sweet).

Pigmentation is really good, I use it in a thin layer, that works better for my dry lips.
I put a first thin layer, press my lips together and then blot it with tissue, repeat the second layer, press my lips together and blot again with tissue, and then let it dry and set into a matte finish.
This will create a better and smoother surface thin layer.

Staying power is quite good if it’s dealing with water, but if it’s oily food then it might fading (remember, makeup remover usually have an oil too to remove waterproof make up, right?).

image

Sorry for the veins. I don’t why it’s that obvious (my friends said I’m quite “transparent” 😑:?)

LT Pro have more powdery texture rather than creamy. The scent is kinda sweet but not too sweet either. It set into a matte finish quite fast, less than 10 seconds I guess. It feels like a different result on lips for a liquid lip colour, I’ve tried some from other brands too (but it’s my friend’s stuff 😄), and most of them have a similar texture with the balm, while this one is more powdery, even when I touch it with my finger, it feels literally powdery but thin layers, doesn’t feel too thick or heavy.

Pigmentation is quite good, usually lighter colour have a bad pigmentation while this one is quite pigmented, it also good a base colour before putting on a bold colour.

Staying power is so so in my opinion, but we can always do touch up, right?

Overall, I love these two, both when I wear it alone or mix it with another colour or another product.
That’s all for my quick review.
Hope you guys find it useful.

Innisfree Olive Real Essential Oil EX

Hello guys… 🙋

Been a long time. I’m back with skin care review, I’ve been using this for several months, it’s been around 8 months, wow it last quite a long time for a 30ml size.

It’s Innisfree face oil. As I knew they do have some variant but I wanted to try the Olive Real Essential Oil first instead of Green Tea Seed Oil, the other face oil is Soybean Oil.

image

The packaging is a glass bottle with pipette like most of face oil or serum packaging.
It is convenient to use, but not to bring with while travelling.

image

I usually use 2-3 drops in the evening, sometimes in the morning too when my skin feels more dry than usual (I’m dry to normal skin).

Texture is quite light, easy to absorb even before putting on make up. Sometimes I mixed it with my cream moisturizer or with my foundation to get a more glowy and moisturized look.

image

image

The smell a bit annoy me and not my favourite. I don’t know what Olive’s scent should be, but this is smells like Citrus.
The smell dissapear tho after some seconds, but still, not my fave.

When I first get my hand on this , I feel like “30ml, I think I will use it up quite fast”, but apparently this is still last after 8 months of use, and I still have a quarter left.

The price around 23 dollars, if it last for 10 months then it will be like less than 3 dollars a month.

I like what it did to my skin on moisturizing a little longer and makes my skin look healthier and plump in the next morning.
It also doesn’t break me out, just remember guys, do not use it too much, 2-3 drops is enough ☺👍.

I want to try the soybean face oil. It’s on my wish list now.

That’s all for my quick review, hope you guys find it useful.

L’oreal Mat Magique BB Essence

Hello again.
I almost forgot about this product. I wonder about this product because the wand is in unique shape, but to me apparently it became a bad thing.
Here’s the look :

image

It is quite small, but made of glass so it’s heavier than BB or CC cream packaging.

image

Here’s the wand, pointy wand, but the problem is the foundation itself is very liquidy, and I can’t get enough amount if I use the wand, I ended up have to pour it anyway.

image

Shake the bottle before using it, it’s a transparent liquid at the top and the foundation underneath.
Once it set, it turn out to be powdery finish.

image

For dry skin, it’s not that moisturizing, and I have to blend it immediately before it sets on my skin.

Sheer coverage, it feels lightweight for everyday use but unfortunately it makes me got a breakout.

That’s all for my short review, hope you guys find it useful.
Thanks for reading.
