Story of My Makeup Tools: All About Makeup Sponge

5:29 PM

Hi, before you read this post, please mind that I will write in Bahasa (Indonesian language), so sorry for International readers :(



Selama ini alat apa sih yang kamu gunakan untuk makeup?
Kuas? Spons? atau tanpa alat alias pake jari-jemari?

Kalo aku pribadi, aku pernah coba ketiga-tiganya.
Ketika aku pertama pakai makeup, aku pake:

Dari www.ilikewallpaper.net
JARI
Tapi tetep, ini terlalu basic dan hasilnya kalah sama yang pake alat. Jari kita ga bisa nutup pori-pori dengan baik dan tekstur jari kita juga ga bisa bikin flawless.



Sampai suatu ketika, karena suka baca-baca artikel makeup, kepincutlah sama namanya kuas makeup :)
Dari myblushisahorcrux.files.wordpress.com
Cute nggak sih kiyut nggak sih? :D
Karena kuas kiyut beginian, aku mulai tertarik beli kuas ala kadarnya, karena kuas bagus harganya bikin ga makan setaun.
Inilah koleksi kuasku yang masih aku kumpulin:
Iya, baru 3 ini doang. Karena kuas-kuas jenis lain dengan merek abal-abal susah dicari.

Inipun koleksinya masi kurang pake banget. Menurutku, kuas makeup itu minimal banget punya:

Kuas Bedak
Dari feelunique.com


Kuas Alas Bedak
Dari www.vmvhypoallergenics.com

Kuas Eyeshadow
Dari mememecosmetics.co.uk

Kuas Pembaur Eyeshadow
Dari makeupandbeautyblog.com

Kuas Garis Mata / Eyeliner

Dari beautifulmovementscosmetics.com

Kuas Perona Pipi / Blush On
Dari nomoremomjeans.com
Buanyak yak? Itu baru wajib dan dasar dalam kuas makeup.
Padahal nyari kuas-kuas di atas yang murah dan bagus tu susah banget ;'( Hampir ga bakalan nemu kalo mau nyari kuas alas bedak di toko-toko girly.

Eits, yang aku sebutin di atas juga belum semua. Masi banyak lagi anak cucunya kuas-kuas itu.
Kuas bedak punya sepupu kuas kabuki, punya anak kuas kabuki yang rata, bulet, miring, dst.
Kuas alas bedak punya adek kuas concealer.
Kuas garis mata punya anak kuas garis mata yang lurus, miring, kecil, melengkung, dst.
Kuas perona pipi punya ponakan kuas miring, dst.
Dst.
Dst.
Belum pake ukuran nomer.
Dan masi ada jenis kuas lain yang belum aku sebutin.
...
Lah, kok gak praktis banget yak?


Di sela-sela aku pake brush (yang gak lengkap itu), aku mulai berpikir kembali, coba ah, pake spons.
Dari soap.com
Selama ini yang aku tau, spons cuma buat bedak.
Lama-lama aku tau, spons ternyata juga bisa dipakai buat alas bedak. Fungsinya ternyata bisa 2 in 1. Lebih praktis ternyata dari kuas makeup yang beranak-pinak itu.
Belakangan baru tau juga kalo spons bisa dibuat ombre nail art, tapi ga usah dibahas di seri alat makeup ini, nanti kepanjangan ;)

Spons juga murah meriah. Berapa ribu rupiah aja uda dapet, dan 2 in 1 nya juga dapet.
Atau ga usah beli, cukup beli alas bedak padat aja pasti dapet spons :P
Hampir semua cewe, dari emak-emak, ibu-ibu, cewe-cewe, anak-anak, cabe-cabe *ups* pasti punya spons.

Tapi aku pernah beli spons murah, setelah dipake beberapa kali, sponsnya towel-towel, permukaannya jadi kurang halus, ga bisa bikin efek flawless :(

Sampai suatu ketika aku berkenalan sama spons ini:
Dari beautyblender.net
Apa sih ini? Bentuknya kok kayak tetes air?

Setelah baca-baca di www.beautyblender.net, ternyata spons ini amazing banget! Kenapa?

Multi-fungsi. Spons ini ga cuma buat alas bedak karena setauku spons model beginian cuma buat alas bedak. Ternyata bisa buat bedak, seperti spons umum kita. Spons ini juga bisa buat concealer dan perona pipi! Semua makeup cair, kering, mineral semua-semua dapat dilakukan dengan kantong ajaib spons Beauty Blender ini.
Coba lihat video di sini.

Multi-fungsi #2. Ga cuma buat makeup aja. Spons ini juga bisa digunakan untuk mengaplikasikan perawatan wajah kita. Pelembab, krim pagi, krim malam, krim mata, serum juga bisa diaplikasikan pakai spons Beauty Blender. Keren!

Bentuknya yang unik dan elips dibuat sesuai dengan kontur wajah. Ga cuma itu aja! Ujung kecilnya dibuat supaya bisa menjangkau daerah-daerah nyelempit, contohnya sudut hidung, mulut, dan area mata. 

Teksturnya yang lembut menjanjikan hasil makeup kita flawless dan menutupi garis-garis halus. Ini yang aku butuhkan buat garis halus mataku dan mulutku >_<

♥ Terbuat dari bahan non-alergenik, bebas lateks, bebas bau / parfum, dan bebas pewarna. Kulit sensitif? No worries!



Buat aku yang kerjaannya jaga malem, aku selalu bawa 1 set alat makeup. Dan ga praktis banget kalo bawa semua-muanya sekaligus.
Kalo semua kuasku disubtitusi sama cukup satu spons ini, bawaanku lebih enteng, lebih ga makan tempat, oh indahnya dunia :P



Syukur banget, Beauty Blender sudah ada di Indonesia!

Akhir kata, aku suka banget sama multi-fungsinya. Suka sama warna uniknya, putih atau hitam. Suka sama hasilnya yang katanya flawless. Suka...

Jadi pengen coba...

Kebetulan banget, sekarang ada kontes berhadiah spons Beauty Blender lho!
Beauty blogger doctor kita Ce Phanie bersama Beauty Blender Indonesia sedang ngadain kontes menulis blog berhadiah 2 spons Beauty Blender + pembersih spons! Klik aja link di atas ^-^

Clean and Clear

Review: Clean & Clear Clear Fairness Moisturizer SPF 15

6:47 PM

Hi sweeties,
Today's review is about Clean and Clear Moisturizer. I used Clean and Clear before I got Garnier sample before. After move my heart to Garnier, I move back to Clean and Clear again. Not because one is more and one is less, every skincares are good!
Do you ever use it?
Let's have a review then!

So, why Clean and Clear first? Because its runs out now, and I need new moisturizer. Before I throw it out, I shall review it first!



Packaging
Wrapped nicely with a paper box, in purple to white ombré. There is a seal sticker in its opening, make sure its brand new. Expired date printed on the bottom.





Container



The container itself is a plastic white bottle with a blue screwed cap. Simple and small.



Can see the hole? Yes, the entire hole is where you can get the moisturizer. A moisturizer container usually has a small hole, but it's different! I'm thinking of how germs and bacterias can get inside easier, but I don't bother that.



Prize
I got it for IDR 13.5K, and get 25 ml moisturizer.



Contains



It contains parabens, vitamin B3, and SPF 15. Also some extracts, like rice, grapefruit, and bitter cherry. Sorry guys I can't read about ingredients again. Next time in my next life phase, I want to be your skin consultant ;)



Swatch



It's white and light just like normal water-based moisturizer, also quick absorbed.



My opinions
I love how it's lightweight and absorbed quickly.
My face changed from normal-to-dry to normal-to-oily. After I used it, my face get hydrated enough.

SPF 15 is the plus point for this moisturizer, since the older version doesn't contain SPF. 15 is enough :)

Let's see the claims:
♥ oil-free, checked! It's water-based and sure don't add more oil to your face. My face less oily when I used it.
♥ won't clog pores, checked! My face didn't get any serious condition when used Clean and Clear moisturizer.
♥ brightening, I'm not sure about it because it didn't significant enough but yes checked! Thanks to the SPF. Absolutely it won't make your face lighter than your natural skin.

Conclusions
★★★★★
5/5, perfect!

Whenever I have no idea what will be my next moisturizer when my current moisturizer run out, I often buy Clean and Clear.
It's simple, lightweight, and quick absorbed. And I'm happy to see that they launched this new version with SPF 15.

As a simple moisturizer, it's just purrfect (=`ω´=)
But I expect more innovation from Clean and Clear, especially in moisturizer line.

Most of you guys looking for non-comedogenic moisturizer, and Clean and Clear is the one that you looking for.

Now let's end this post with some photos of mine ^0^
I want to show you how small is the moisturizer bottle, compare to my face and hand :|


If any of my real-life friends see my selfies, please don't call me "alay", I only do this in my beauty world, c'mon, all beauty blogger do selfies T_T (except my BF wants to do couple photos and selfies)
There is a friend called me like that before, just because suddenly I twitted more often, what kind of this world are?!? That's why I made another accounts (Hasuhana by nickname) separate from my real account, because I dislike to be called "alay".

Thanks for reading it guys!
Any of you use it?
Do you like the new photo concept? ^-^

lipbalm

Review: Maybelline Baby Lips

7:04 PM

Hi everyone (。^_・)ノ

I am in the middle of no-night-shift and short stage, so I have much time to blog.
Usually when I went outside my house, my brain filled with soooo many ideas of what would I do if I am at home. But when I arrived at home, the idea popped out and I did daydreaming at home. Sometimes I remembered my ideas, but the acts never happened. Sometimes I thought I was lack of time. Some things need much time.



Enough my procrastinanting reason and okay let's write some review post.

The choice goes to... *drumroll* Maybelline Baby Lips!



This is the second Maybelline Baby Lips for me. The first was Energizing Orange, but for the review photo, I use the Anti-Oxidant Berry one.



Variation
Maybelline Baby Lips comes in so many variation outside Indonesia. Sadly, only 3 flavors available here.
1. Smoothing Cherry in green and peach cap.
2. Anti-Oxidant Berry in light blue and pink cap.
3. Energizing Orange in purple and orange cap.


Price
Totally cheap among any lipbalm! I got mine for about IDR 16K it think. I'll update soon when I found the note.



Packaging

As a drugstore lipbalm, the lipbalm comes inside a transparrent plastic and a cardboard in oval shape, with a hole in the upside for hanging the lipbalm.
For the lipbalm, it comes in plastic tube, strong enough even if you drop it.



Contains

The weight is 4 gr.
It contains SPF 20, and Centella essence.
It claims to an instant 8 hours moisture and rejuvenated lips.


The balm itself is white with a little hint of pinkish. See?



My Opinions
I remember the claims to smoothen lips and reduce the lip's fine lines and become like a baby's lips.
But for me it's just like a regular lipbalm. My fine lines' didn't reduce at all.

The staypower is so low, compare to my previous lip balm, Mentholatum Lip Ice. It's easy to vanish, especially after you ate something. Need to apply many times at any times.

The SPF level is great, I ever red that minimum SPF level for our skin is 15, so 20 is perfect! In theory, we must apply sunscreen every 2 hours, so because it's easy to fade, let's reapply, reapply, and reapply.

Because I applied at any times, even when my mouth isn't as clean as when I dolled up, the lipbalm started to collect bacteria from my mouth and developed odor.
My first Maybelline Baby Lips also developed odor. Thumbs down for this p(´⌒`。q)

Compared to my previous lipbalm, I have tried Mentholatum Lip Ice about 3-4 tubes and just 1 tube that developed odor.



Conclusions
★★☆☆☆
2/5 stars from me, a little disappointed.

♥ I love the cheapness. It's the cheapest lipbalm I've ever seen. And contains SPF 20 is more than enough to protect my lips.

♡ I just hate the others. The claims wasn't work at me. It's easy to fade and develops odor. And it made me disappointed because the claims seems wow but the real is just a regular lipbalm.

★ But I still want to repurchase. Maybe next time I'll try the Smoothing Cherry.

★ The last conclusion I get from this review is: it's more hygiene to use lipbalm in a pot instead in a tube. Your mouth always have bacteria and make the tube-lipbalm, especially in the hole to collects bacteria. To use the pot-lipbalm, just make sure your fingers are clean. You can use hand sanitizer at any times to clean you fingers. But, for the tube-lipbalm, I never hear any mouth sanitizer before (´∇ノ`*)ノ

Won A Giveaway: Chermaine Ho: Giveaway Again!

7:42 PM

I think I'm in a good mood for writing a post ( ^∇^)

See the giveaway winner announcement here.



Here I want to repost the pics of the giveaway:

So, one day, I got a shocking email that I win a giveaway. Yes, shocking, because I was already MIA that month. So, I checked and...

DANG!!!
#611 was sure my lucky number ^^

So happy when I saw this, this was my first time I won an international giveaway, and became confused about my address. I'll talk about this later.



So, Chermaine contacted me on September 1st, 2013.
And after my confusing address problem, the package arrived safely but rejected by my mom at September 28th, 2013.

WHY????

Because, I didn't tell my mom.
Actually you'll see many international giveaway requires parents concern "if you are below 18 years old".
I'm above 18, yes, but I still live with my parents, while (cmiiw) people out there live alone when they step into their adult age.

I don't want to tell my mom because, my mom would ask and ask and ask what package? What? When? Where? Maybe you've been cheated, etc, etc. It would makes me uncomfortable, so I kept it secret until the package really arrived.

That day, I was at hospital while my mom called me.
BEEP!
I : Hello?
Mom (M) : Hey, Devi, what is that package!? From Australia?!
I : Oh, yes that's mine! I won it!
M : I've sent it back! I should pay, they said! I don't want to pay! They can cheat us! They angry, then said if you want the package, then take yourself at post office!
I : Oh, we must pay the tax? How much?
M : About IDR 7.000!
I : -_-" That's cheap...
M : I don't know I just don't want to be cheated! Then you take yourself! I'll give the money when you come home!
.....

If you have a little stingy mommy then you should tell her, I aware you -_-
I should went to the most inside of the post office and went up to 3rd floor... while actually I could touch that when I arrived at home...

So, actually that's not the tax. The tax is free, but everybody should pay because when it get inside our country, it would be opened by the employee to check what's inside, then the post office should wrap it back and that's what you pay for. I know wrapping doesn't cost that much but IDR 7-8K is already cheap compare to what you get.


So, the package finally arrived 3months ago.

Welcome, my new baby~♥ (hug hug)


The sender. Chermaine, thank you so much! ♥




Peek inside. Wrapped with bubblewrap.


Her notes ♥ appreciate a lot.


And introduce to you, my new babies ♥



I still remember when I took the gift out one by one and brought it back to the cardboard and I took again, I always found a sample that I didn't realize it there before, hahaha o(≧∇≦o)

Unfortunately, the Skin Food Gold Caviar Toner leaked somehow and it made my package smells so good until now(〒▽〒)just realized that after I found a thin sample between the cardboard and bubblewrap, that was the last sample I found.



In the end, I want to share in points, some of my tips when you win an international giveaway in Indonesia:

★The tax is free. I ever read there are some regulation about tax, cmiiw, as example, if you get giveaway worth below $25 then the tax is free. Or if the package is gift, then the tax is free. I think beauty giveaway doesn't worth that much so the major of all is free. Ah, forget that. Anyway, it's FREE!

★ But, yes, you still pay for the wrapping and checking things. Not expensive at all. I was about IDR 7-8K.

★ Write your address in Indonesian format. I give you an example.
I write my address like this:
Jl. Ini no. 1 RT 01 / RW 01
Kelurahan, Kecamatan, Solo
Central Java, Indonesia 54321
Tel: +62 800 xxx xxxx
If your address is Jl. Ini no. 1 then you should write it that way, don't replace "Jalan" with "Street". Because the one that send the package would be domestic, they don't need to translate it.
While you can replace Jawa Tengah with Central Java.
And don't forget your phone number.

★ If you think you're old enough (18+ y.o.) and don't want to tell your parents, make sure they will do receive the package and agree to pay if suddenly they get the package.



Thanks for reading, hope you enjoy it, and enjoy your future giveaway present, hahaha o(≧∇≦o)
Good luck!

Merry Christmas 2013 and Happy New Year 2014!

9:46 PM


Hi there! Merry Christmas from us! (ノ^∇^)
Well, I know, I'm MIA these months.
Coass makes me more busy and lazy so I spend my time for sleep and rolling on the bed.
Just not that I neglect this blog, I do love this blog, just my laziness made my body can't move from the bed(*^^*)



So, I think almost all of my 2013 resolution didn't go fine. I still can't join the IBB ╥﹏╥
Let's take a look about how's my resolution last year...

Make some good review post
Well, actually you can count with your fingers, how many review post that I made through 2013... Good or not, you decide.

Join IBB
Still. Can't.

Try almost all makeup kind e.g. eyeliner, blush, mascara
Yes I've tried all! Finally, some of my 2013 resolution passed! ヾ(゚∀゚ゞ)
My eyeliner is Silkygirl (which is ran out already ╥﹏╥, my blush is Face On Face, and my mascara is Pixy. Haven't make the review yet.

Make this blog growing and growing
I don't know if it's growing or not. It's grow a little, maybe my blog is still a sprout. But, I will say, yes it's growing!

Earn money
No money I harvested from this blog, hahaha. My online shop hadn't open already too.

Manage my time more
I still think I'm failed in this section. If I could manage my time, and.. and.. not lazy, I would.. I would blogged more...

Wake up in the morning
Still unbreakable habit.

Do routine exercise
At the holiday session I did routine exercise, and stopped for coass sake. Maybe after I become a doctor, I can exercise again? For marriage sake ♥(ノ´∀`)

More closer to God
I think it showed a progress. I realize I am not perfect, I still often skipped my bible reading and praying. But I feel that I can feel His love more and more, after all this pain and suffering. Hope this year I can minimalize skipping bible reading and praying (^_−)☆

3 of 9 resolutions go well...



For kaleidoscop of 2013, I can't say much since I can't remember my memories well. Here's what I remember...

★ January: Got my android phone, Samsung Galaxy S III Mini, and the launching is exactly on my birthday! Since then, I can captured photos for this blog.

★ February: My friend asked me to accompany her at a wedding party and that was my first time I did full makeup on my own.

★ March: I created Bloglovin' account, due to the issue that Blogger Reader would shut down. In this month, almost all of my classmates were graduated.

★ April: Finally made a Facebook account.

★ May: Made my first review. Also, my compre exam took this month.

★ June: The month that I was graduated. Finally. (*^^*) Now my name is Devi PS, S.Ked.

★ July: My first time using eyeliner.

★ August: I can't remember any...

★ September: I began my coass. And the last post was in this month. Cause I got double hard stage, pediatric and obsgyn, made me lost appetit on blogging.

★ October: The month of my pediatric exam. Super stressed till I cried in front of the examiner...

★ November: Entering obsgyn stage.

★ December: The month of obsgyn exam, and it took 1-2 days before Christmas. Happily, the ending of this stage was great, we helped the residen dancing. I love dancing ヾ(゚∀゚ゞ) Unfortunately the real ending of this stage wasn't good...



Well, let's end this post with new resolution for this year. Well, I should write this and place it in my shelf.
For this year, I hope:
● I can wake up in the morning, hahaha still the same as last year. If coffee can help, please, my body, wake up to make a coffee.
● Manage my time, again.
● Study and learn more, at least once a day.
● Go smooth through coass. No more prolong.
● Revive this blog if I have some spare time. Made a post quicker. Do not procrastinating. And don't leave the study.
● Revive the online shop. Find a way to get money, for the marriage sake.
● Find the God's path. And closer even more to Him.


I will add more if I remember something new.
In the end of this post, I hope you guys get abundance blessing through this year.
