La Tulipe Pro Powder Blush Refill in no. 1 & no. 8

Hai! Recently I really been into Indonesian's local product because I just realize that so many product that I didn't know yet. And gosh, those local product has so good quality! And this make me doubt to buy any korean product because I feel they kind of overpriced when I can get just a same quality with a cheaper price (minus they cute packaging of course ;P).

So here it is..

La Tulipe Pro Powder Brush (i got the refill one)

Price : Rp37.500 / $4

I bought this at local store in Bandung called Toko Mahmud. Usually you can get much cheaper price there because they kind of distributor or first seller of so many makeup brand in bandung so they can give a cheaper price. But you can also get this brand in department store like Matahari Department Store, etc.

If you live in Indonesia, you might have heard about La Tulipe Cosmetics and this La Tulipe Pro (which usually have a black packaging one - this is how we can differentiate them) is the proffesional line of La Tulipe cosmetics which usually used by make up artist or proffessional purpose. So this line has a better quality than the original La Tulipe one.

I bought this blush because I am in searching for a highlighter and countour powder so I get this in number 1 & 8 (which is the first & the last number in this powder blush).

They also have another blush colour like pink, peach, or rose.

I don't really like the packaging design though.. haha I would like if they came more cuter or even more elegant. But this one not really bad anyway..

Size of the real blush. Not really big nor small.

This one has a pink undertone to it. And it will leaves a white cast something like that if you put it too much. Usually I just dab my finger into this blush pan gently to take some colour & spread it out onto my nose or part where i need to highlight. I don't think I would use brush because it might be hard to control or get too much product. But look at the positive side, this will make our product much last longer as well because you just need a tiny bit of this product :)

I guess this one more suit for someone who has a fair skin under NC/NW 30 (in MAC shades) because more tan your skin to be, more bold whitecast you will get from this blush. You need to blend it really well to diminish the white cast.

For the shimmer, I seen that the particle of the shimmer is fine. Not as fine as ELF healty glow bronzer in Luminance, but i hasn't chunky glitter neither. Again, you need to blend it well if you want to get just a sheen finish.

They both has a same size.

This one has a matte finish which good for oily skin people like me.
This not look too orangey or greyish taupe yet it look like a tan/dark shade of compact powder. So it will look natural if you use it as a countour powder.
Honestly, this one didn't really work on my skin shade which is about NC30. I need to use so many product to build up the colour to showed up in my skin. I guess this will work for people who have shade under NC30.

I wonder why Indonesian product lack of dark shade for medium-dark skin people which most of Indonesian people have a medium-dark skintone like me.

Overall, for $4 of each product, we get a pretty good quality of product. I didn't expect to much from both of this. They have no fatal flaw, they shade just not really suit my skintone.

Review : Herbal Essences Dangerously Straight Silky & Straight Shampoo with a fusion of honeysuckle & silk

Hello :D
Recently i tried some shampoo and i quite like from the herbal essences one tough so i need to make a review about this one :)

Herbal Essences
Dangerously Straight Silky & Straight Shampoo
with a fusion of honeysuckle & silk

Price : Rp18.000/$2 for 160ml

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

Yes the bottle is PINK! yaaaaay >.<
I'm crazy about anything pink.

There are another type of this shampoo like for dandruff, long hair, or colour hair, etc.
But i choose the straight hair because i have a frizzy long hair, and since they promising a silky straight result so it must has a ingredients that that can condition & moisturize my hair so my hair should be less frizzy

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

They said that this one contain Silky extract & Honeysuckle Flower extract in it.
The instruction was so cute! :D haha

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

The bottle itself was quite big! I use generous amount when i use this because it will take me a long time to finish this. And i'm a type of person who get boring easily.. :p So i must finish it up as soon as i can.

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

It has a push cap so it's more easy to use.

The texture a little bit runny compared to the other brand.

I find that this shampoo is not give me a dramatic result on my hair.
My hair just feel less frizzy & sleek. But, i find that my hair is more straight & more easy to manage.
Just make sure that you also use a conditioner after using this shampoo to get the best result. Actually, this Dangerously Straight version has a conditioner along the shampoo, but i just purchase the shampoo because it out of stock at the moment.

I like to use this shampoo along with this Sunsilk Soft & Smooth Nourishing Conditioner after I rinse the shampoo and Sunsilk Damage Treatment Serum while my hair was half dry condition after shampooing.

Do visit their website to know more about this brand : http://www.herbalessences.com/en-US/hair-care

Next time i'm going to try their Long Term Relationship one for long hair :D

Thanks and have a good day everyone :)

Maybelline Clear Smooth Shine Free Blush in Fresh Apricot

A month ago there is a new product that I spotted from Maybelline New York, here in Indonesia.
This blush got a pretty much positive review from beauty addict members in Female Daily forum. So, I get a chance to try this one too :)
This blush also very affordable. Just for $4 or Rp37.500 to be exact in Indonesian Rupiah.

My shade is fresh apricot which is some like reddish coral shade. So pretty and look really natural on my cheeks like my natural blushing face.

You must use this blush with a light hand because this one is so pigmented. U just need a little bit color to enchance ur look.

And the texture is so silky & soft! Not powdery at all.. that's why I love this blush. In the pan it look like that it has shimmer on it but when u swatch on your cheek or hand, the shimmer is gone. Like 100 % matte except u see it really really close up like my last swatch at the bottom.

This blush I choose as my everyday blush because the natural shade, lovely texture, and great pigmentation.

Btw u can check another review of this blush on my cute friend Cominica's blog Here :)

So wish u a happy day and see u next time ^^ bye!

ELF Essential Healty Glow Bronzer in Luminance

Another ELF product review! ƪ(˘⌣˘)┐ ƪ(˘⌣˘)ʃ┌(˘⌣˘)ʃ
Seriously I had a crush with this brand because they are so affordable yet have a good quality..

I got this baby just for $3 or Rp25.000 from baby cleo (BBC) shoppe on female daily market plaza.. But, if u live in united state or country that has CVS or Wallmart, u can get this just for $1!
This is actually a bronzer but many people use this as a highlighter instead because the shade is so light and work great as a highlighter. So, do I.

The texture is a little bit powdery in the pan.. Not really but still noticeable if u take the product with ur hand.

It has a very mild shimmer and gives a satin/sheen finish. Very very pretty!
And it can works on every skin shade I think.

So this product is very great for those people who don't want to spend so much money on highlighter but still want a nice product.

I can't describe anything else from this product. It just GREAT.
I need to get another shade from this Essential Healty Bronzer line very soon.. :)

Thx for reading, have a good day! \‎​\(´▽`)//

Review : ELF Little Black Beauty Book warm & cool

Annyong! :D

I'm super excited to get this baby on my hand! Fell in love from the first time I saw picture of this pretty baby..

This cost for $5 on ELF site but, I paid $9 or Rp90.000 on indonesian online store. I purchase this on BabyCleo shop on Female Daily Forum market plaza.. Anyway, she has give the cheapest price than the other store though..

So, let's get start the review..

They have 2 colors when the one is all of warm tone colors & the other one contain all of the cool colors. Each palette have 28 eyeshadows and 20 lip glosses.

The eyeshadows is pretty vibrant. Some colors are have great pigmentation while some other colors are just so so and the other have poor pigmentantion.
Not really fantastic but its pretty worth for the price. Also, this one is good for a beginner like me since they have all of the basic colors..
But, like the other cheap eyeshadows, this one also have really powdery texture.. The shadows can fall into under my eyes and make anything messy.. -.-

And the glosses is good for me! I'm type of person who a bit hard to find a lip products that didn't dry out my lips. But, those glosses are really moisturizing! Some color are pigmented enough to use as a tinted balm for everyday use while some color are also pretty enough to use as a glosses on the top of ur fave lipstick.

U can click the picture for bigger pic..
Sorry I'm not make a swatches because I'm hard to get a natural lighting lately.. But the color is just the same like on the pan.

And the size of this palette is so handy..
It can flipped out so it won't like need to much space. But, since it was have an eyeshadows on the left side and a lip gloss on the right side, sometimes the eyeshadows can fall out into the glosses and make it gross.. So u need to place something like a plastic to separate them.
