To Be Honest...

9:52 PM

Hello guys, seems like long time no see.
I write this post using my phone.
There are many things I want to share, even not all of them are beauty related.

You maybe know I like to join giveaways. Even my giveaways widget more updated than my post itself. Yes I want to try my luck if I can get them. In my real life, it's hard for me to get some beauty products over IDR 50k. Even for some beauty product above IDR 20k, I should really think, and the end always be the same, I restricted myself to buy it. Even my BF told me to buy it, but sometimes I won't.

It really are... guys. Please be grateful if you can buy makeups over IDR 50k. I just have my Maybelline concealer for my over IDR 50k's makeup. I want to buy etude house, they are super cute, but I just can't. Yeah, sometimes I felt envy to all of you... But I decided to create this beauty blog, even if I would join among people with makeup addicted, I feel that I can get closer to get some makeup things. Yeah, the most simple thing is if my blog traffic is high, I can place some ads, get money, and buy more. Or I can get some affiliates or sponsors, and get some products. Yeah, that is my honest thought...

The shocking part was when I joined someone's giveaway. The participants should tell about how we knew the blog, critics, and suggestions. Because many bloggers accept bad critics and thoughts, I also wrote in my honest expressions of the good and bad... everything. Even it was out of topic. I wanted that she knows all my thoughts. Just that. No bad words.

But, she more appreciated the one with polite way of speak. When I read the winner announcement, I realized that I did that wrong. My words are... maybe making those heartbreak. But, it's okay that I didn't win, I thought. Until she made a post by gather all of our entry.

Including my bad entry.

The shocking part was reading almost all of the comments. They are all hate my bad entry :((( I couldn't resist it so I commented too, defending myself, protecting my good name. I am a beauty blogger too, and I don't want my name being bad :(

After that, I told myself to give up on that kind of giveaways. Or just fill it with "more reviews, more videos, more tutorials" is the safe way, even if I think that kind of entry is just a common follower who just want to get extra points for the giveaway...

It's not the end. Some shock still in my head, made me think again, am I capable? Can I become a beauty blogger? Should I retire, and just focus on my college? Should I close this blog? Should I? :(

To be think, I am procrastinating to make some reviews. My house doesn't have private room, make me doesn't want to make reviews. I can't doll up myself if my parents can sometimes brag inside the room and can scold me about wasting the makeups anytime if I do. Later, I will be a busy girl because of coassisstantship and will often sleep at hospital, learning forever, working, get and saving money, marry, buying house, honeymoon, take specialist while have a child, take care the household, and beatify my husband, I don't sure if I can have time for blogging, even if I can manage my time.

Can I have your suggestions?

And I will open a shop.
I will give you an opening discount, so please come by and place an order.
It's not finished yet, but you still can looking around. Not sure about having opening giveaway or not...
For now I sell Etude House makeups by pre order.
It's for Indonesian only.
I'll be back with more stories, and come back with my laptop, because it really slow to write with phone -_-" many typos...

Right now I want to study first.
Bye everyone ^^/

Review: Garnier Brightening Eye Roll-On

8:43 PM

Hi everyone~!
Anyone miss me? ^-^
I've got many products this month.
I got my first mascara and blush as well!
I will use it many times until I am ready for reviewing them :)
Actually I have this Garnier a long time before my Garnier Light Complete review.
I can say that this is my first Garnier product I have.

Garnier Brightening Eye Roll-On comes with a cardboard box package, wrapped with a transparent plastic.
I'd opened it before, so I just can show you the cardboard box.
Anyway, do you like my flowery colorful rose background? ^^
It's a piece of gift-wrapper.

Come to the first place, I was looking for a cheap eye cream.
This Garnier roll-on was the cheapest eye-thing I found, moreover it was discount ≧◡≦
At first I wanted to buy it, I was afraid if my baggy eyes disappeared o(╥﹏╥)o
The Garnier claimed this eye roll-on as anti-bags and anti-dark circles.
I think baggy eyes are still a trend from Korea because the effect of smiling face, which is cute.
After a long time of thinking, I ensured myself to bought it.

The back side tells about the introduction, the claims, and the ingredients, in Indonesian and... Philippines???
I capture more closer look below.
The keys they said on the introduction are:
[ Caffeine + Massage = Brightener Eye Skin ]
Caffeine to helps stimulating the circulation.
Massage to helps the natural circulation and refresh the tired eyes.

As far as I know, caffeine can dilate the blood vessel and increase muscle capacity.
Imagine if these effects are applied to your eyes, it really helps your circulation better because your blood vessel dilates or wider, and your tired eyes muscle would be fresher.

It also has cooling sensation, claimed that the skin would be brighter in 2 weeks and eye bags and dark circle reduced at 4 weeks.

Yes I feel slightly cooling sensation, but I didn't feel my dark circle reduced.
They all just same as before!
Somehow I feel regret to bought it, better I buy a real eye cream.
This roll-on just did its function as eye-fresher.

Below is the ingredients.
You can see methylparaben here, which means this roll-on contains paraben.

The right side (from my view) picture below.

I capture the bigger size about caffeine.
Well, of course the caffeine was extracted, not a real coffee (^∇^)ノ
That's why the roll-on doesn't smell like coffee.
It doesn't contain any fragrance, good for sensitive skin ^‿^

Picture below is the left side (from my view), just the philosophy of Garnier at the top side.
Made for Asian skin.
Anyway, it's not Indonesian o.O may be Malaysian?

And producer, importer, and distributor, at the bottom side.
15 ml, can be recycled, and 12 months since the first opening.
Pretty good~

Enough for the box, let's take a peek inside! ^^
I love how they pack this roll-on ♥-♥
They put another cardboard to keep the roll-on on the place and prevent it from shaking, even the roll-on is made from plastic, shaking or not, doesn't matter (─‿‿─)

Here's the roll-on ^^
It's made from yellow plastic bottle, with Garnier sticker on the middle.
The cap is made from semi transparent plastic.
The sticker continuous until the back side.
Just telling 15 ml volume, recycle-able, and...
AND TELLING THE DIFFERENT EXPIRED TIME!!! (sorry to caps lock, but I just realized this when I wrote this post)
Remember the box said 12 months, and this sticker said 6 months?
Which one is true??? (/゚Д゚)/
I opened the roll-on.
You can see it's screw-cap type.
Because it's a roll-on, the bottle attached with a metal ball on the top.
See the black plastic around the ball?
I hate it!!! ヽ(≧Д≦)ノ
There are, tiny, little, bumps which I can't capture with camera because it's too tiny, even I felt difficult to see it with my bare eyes, that irritating my eyes everytime I rolled this roll-up to my eye skin!
You all know that our eye skin is very thin and sensitive, and feeling that bump suddenly scratching my eyes - even gently - was hurt.
I tricked that by remembering the same spot that doesn't have bump.
But that isn't always works.

At first swatch I experienced that the liquid color was brown, so I think, "It's coffee!"
The brown color was remind me of a liquorice oil.
But at many swatch, the color began to disappear and became transparent like water.

How to use that?
Here I attached a video from Garnier's Facebook.


Well, use it 5 times a day???
Nay for me, I didn't even remember to use it  (; ̄Д ̄)

As a bonus, my picture of using Garnier Brighteing Eye Roll-On without makeup \(//∇//)\
Roll in small circular motion to massage the lower eye skin...
Roll on the upper eye skin...
Do roll in small circular motion to massage the lower eye skin once more...
Swab to spread the liquid...

In case you didn't or couldn't watch the video  ( ´ ▽ ` )ノ



[CONCLUSION SUMMARY]
I love because...
♥ Cooling sensation, an eye-fresher 
♥ Not contains fragrance, suitable for sensitive skin 
♥ Nice packing, prevent shaking 

I hate because...
♡ My dark circle didn't reduce 
♡ Contains paraben 
♡ The expired time between the box and the sticker are different 
♡ The bump scratching my eye skin 
♡ Use 5 times a day for the result 

I give it...
★☆
4/10
Besides of eye-fresher, nothing can be benefit for me.
But I still often use it for my skincare routine twice a day.
Thanks for reading :)

Please take a look on this update ( ´ ▽ ` )ノ
★ I'm a little afraid to post this review, my review is super honest and I made a bad review about this product, I feel so sorry to Garnier and the others if my writing hurts them. However, this is what I thought about this product. I'd always inserted disclaimer on PS section at the bottom of every review post.
★ It might works if you use it 5 times a day, I am so lazy and forgetful I can't use it 5 times a day.
★ If you often experience tired eyes, this product can be great instant eye-fresher for you. It's easy to carry on everywhere in your makeup pouch.
★ I forgot to enclose the price. After a long time searching the bill, the normal price of this Garnier is IDR 35.5k, I got discount from the local supermarket, so I bought it at IDR 20k ^^

PS.
Based on my honest review.
I do not paid for this review.
If it's working for me, it doesn't always working for you and vice versa. Check your skin type and your allergies.

Totally Random Today

2:30 PM

Hi girls,
I am so boreeed today, I don't have any mood to capture photos, so lazy because this is a shared room and I don't want my brothers catch me photophoria, so embarrassing >_<

I kept thinking what I wanna do, and I decided to make this random post.
No makeup or beauty things today, just random things I want to share.
And I played with Pinterest these days.
I want to know about Pinterest more, can you guys tell me something?
I try to uploaded my photos here via Pinterest, but now I think it's not a good idea -_-
It doesn't support multiple uploads.
Pinterest may be more worth when I upload pictures on this blog and then detect them on Pinterest to pin it, agree?

Okay, go to the randomness~!
★ My highest blog visit of the day until now is on July 9th 2013 with pageviews 67 visits ★
Maybe it because I shared my blogpost on IBB >.<
And it makes sense now xD



★ Persunmall giveaway everywhere 
Especially on email.
Until now, I joined every Persunmall giveaway on my blog comments.
I want to appreciate all of you guys.
But looking at this list makes me lazy to take some acts -_-
My mail, full of giveaway...
I even didn't open all of them -_-
I appreciate Persunmall that makes giveaway for us, really.
I just... bored because of too many blogs featuring their giveaway.
I censored all of their name except subscribed mails from MichellePhan, etc.
It's just a segment of my mails, there are more...



★ I will buy a new glasses~! 
What's up with a glasses??!
Everyone can buy that!
Let me tell you some story...
It began from my mom, who had myopia eyes.
She was using glasses.
She found that it made herself felt dizzy.
She blamed the glasses.
She never wanted to wear glasses anymore.
THE END.
...
No, no, it's not the end of the story!
...
The story continuous after I became a little girl.
Because of her experience with glasses when she was a young lady, my parents didn't allow me (and my brothers after then) to wear glasses.
They said they would buy me a horse glasses if I get myopia.
They always scare me by that horse glasses, did everything that folks said it can prevents me from myopia.
At my junior high school, my eyes was still good.
I have normal eyes on the left and -0.25 on the right.
Still good, really.
Go to senior high school, I felt my eyes myopia a bit.
I asked my parents to bought me a contact lenses.
And maybe because I was winning a contest, I got that contact lenses ^^
It's the first time I used contact lenses.
I found my eyes is -0.50 on both.
...
(I think my story isn't to the point now)
...
Yeah, the point is, I never used glasses before.
Well, back to the present.
I feel my vision getting worsened these days.
It's very annoying when I watched basketball several times, I couldn't see the player's face.
They are all blurred... o.O
I still believe my vision still below -1.00, but I want to fix it.
I can't buy contact lenses because my life after this would become very very busy, if I should wear contact lenses for more than 6 hours, I don't know what would happen to my eyes... It would be very very dry...
But I still love using contact lenses ^^ if I get it, I can use it for special occasion :D

I proposed my parents yesterday if I wanted to buy a glasses and they accepted it! ^^
I want to buy glasses that supports my face, my face is round, and I should look for a rectangle frame.
Also, glasses can boosts my professional look!

Here what I want to buy:


How do you think?
Remember I like blue color ^^
Pics from here.


Okay that was the random today.
I want to prepare myself now, want to watch Despicable Me 2 with my BF ^^
See ya!

Review: Silkygirl Double Intense Liquid Eyeliner Waterproof

10:26 PM

Holla (^-^)/ I'm back with another review.
It's an eyeliner now.
This is my first liquid eyeliner, btw...
*how dare you made a beauty blog when you were never using any eyeliner!? SLAP!!!*
Ahaha... (^-^") *acting kind*

This is the eyeliner.
I bought Silkygirl Double Intense Liquid Eyeliner Waterproof in No.01 Blackest Black about February this year.
This eyeliner just has one shade, I think.
I didn't meet any other shade when I bought this.




---Price---
I forgot how much I paid for this eyeliner, but I prove you it's cheap!
I think it's about IDR 30-40k.
For me it's quite expensive, but compare to the others that price range was about IDR 100k, it's super cheap!
But along with the cheapness, it contains 2,5 ml only -_-



---Packaging---
It comes without a box.
I bought just like in the picture above.
It has a plastic seal to make sure it wasn't opened before.
 The eyeliner has black plastic container and sturdy enough, won't broke if it's dropped ;P

It has a screw top cap, attached with the brush.


The brush is somehow rigid.
I don't know any other eyeliner brands since it's my first, but I was surprised of its rigidity.
For making regular lines, this brush is quite okay, but for making thin lines, I'm not sure this brush can do it.




---Ingredients---

water (aqua), acrylates/octylacrilamide copolymer, glycerin, sodium lauroyl, sarcosinate, disodium edta, candelilla cera, cera alba, stearic acid, cetyl alcohol, phenyl, trimethicone, ozokerite, copernicia cerifera cera, cellulose, hectorite, xanthan gum, phenoxyethanol, methylparaben, butylparaben, ethylparaben, iodopropynyl, butylcarbamate, isobutylparaben, propylparaben, may contain: CI 77499
It contains parabens guys.
The ingredients written on the plastic seal I mentioned before, like the picture above, really hard to see, right?
So I wrote it just in case you want to know the ingredients, and as my documents :)



---Swatch---


Yap, see picture above.
At the middle was the normal swatch.
I re-take the eyeliner at the first "H" and the first "-".
The heart mark on the left side is 1 swatch only, and the right side is the blackest this eyeliner can be, about 4-5 swatch -_-"
Pardon me, but when I did this, my eyeliner may be run out too, but still can use it.

You can say that it wasn't true black, which gave it one minus point.
I need to re-apply and re-take this eyeliner whenever I used it.

I divided into 2 section.
The left "Ha" is used to try rub test, and the right "Ha" is used to try water test.

Rub-proof, yes, I think, if it's soft (left above, just don't too hard (right above).
Make sure it's dry before you rub it.

Waterproof, yes! (left below), just don't rub it when it's wet!
Most of eyeliner won't resist the rub when it's wet.

---Conclusion---
I love (^-^)
♥ cheap 
♥ water proof 
♥ soft rub proof 

I hate (>-<)
♡ not true black, must re-apply 
♡ only 2,5 ml, what the... 

Note \('o' )
★ this eyeliner is good enough for beginners, I post about my first time using eyeliner here
★ after this eyeliner runs out, I will buy the gel liner from Silkygirl since it's cheap too ★

So I give...
★★★★★★☆☆☆
6/10 STAR!

Thanks for reading ;)
PS.
I've made a Pinterest account today! ^^
Find me at pinterest.com/hasuhana
It's still empty, yes, I just want to announce this ^^

PPS.
Based on my honest review.
I do not paid for this review.

First Time Using Liquid Eyeliner

2:46 PM

Welcome ^-^
In this post I wanna share my first time using liquid eyeliner.

Why it's my first time?
First, liquid eyeliner is too expensive for me, and I had been using cheap pencil eyeliner before that uner IDR 5k.
Second, my mom don't have it.
I've always borrowed my mom's makeups before.
The weakness of my mom's are my mom doesn't have liquid eyeliner, mascara, nude lipstick (all red!), lipgloss, concealer, etc etc.
So my focus are buying that my mom doesn't have.
Third, I was a tomboy girl before and an anti-makeup girl.
I ever try, yes, but in a salon with a makeup artist did it for me.
So I never, ever, used it before I bought it myself.

Now let's get to...
First time swipe~!!
It's hard at first, yea >,<
My lashes, please, get out of my sight!
I can't draw the outer because my lashes obstruct the view.
WHOOPS!!!
It slipped a lot.



Alright! Let's try again.
Remove the old one first...
Why are they still in my eyes!?
It can't removed! >,<
They stuck between my lashes >,<
*pardon my big nose*



Some of them stuck inside my eyes, bleh xP
I have to put them out >,<
...
.....
.......
.........
...........
Okay I give up.
Let them inside, besides, it's not hurt.



Let's try again...
Yeeeeeeaaaayyyy~~~!!!
Both right and left are different, yes, it's because...



I made this on the left eye ^^
It's like Xiaxue's eyeliner :|

And this on the right eye ^^
It supposed to be puppy eyeliner, but it just make me look sad :(
Yea, no problem, it's the first time using it so I need to practice and practice more.
*the problem is the eyeliner runs out >,<*

And you will see your eye dirt become black in the morning...
Heheh.

Eyeliner I used:
♥ Silkygirl Double Intense Liquid Eyeliner Waterproof 
(Review here)

How about you? How's your first time using liquid eyeliner?
And can you give me tips to draw my outer line because my lashes obstruct my view >,< but I don't want to pull my eyeskin >,<

Thanks for reading, guys ^0^
PS. Just a story.
Persunmall giveaways are really booming around this early July. There are too much Persunmall giveaway inviting in my comments and my email. So, sorry for you guys, if I am not joining your giveaway after this... I just can't take it anymore... I am a bit busy this day... I will try to join, I want to appreciate all of your comments, but I don't have many times for that. Thanks for your concern :)
