PGH Photo Fair Speaker Series #2: Deb Bell at Mattress Factory January 9th

In 2011, after 23 years in art sales, Deborah Bell became Vice President Specialist of the Photographs Department at Christie's auction house. Today, she admits, she is “still new to the business.” In the strictest sense, this may be true, but her long engagement with photography is as multifaceted as the medium itself. As a volunteer tour guide at the Walker Art Center during her teens, then as a BFA student, later as a freelance photographer, a printer, a professor, and, finally, as a professional dealer with her own gallery, Bell's scholarship and experience set a high standard.

Deborah Bell will share her insights and expertise as a part of the impressive lineup at the PGH Photo Fair Speaker’s Series. The evening will discuss market trends, the differences between running her own gallery and managing a full department at a major auction house, and the work she’s been doing to consolidate Christie’s tremendous reputation for “single-owner sales.” These sales consist of works drawn exclusively from a single collection. As more important early collections from the 1970s and 80s appear on the market, Bell explains, her department becomes more sensitive to their peculiarities. Unlike the “various owner” sales that feature objects from various consignors, single-owner sales often take fascinating biographical or aesthetic shapes, reflecting the character of the collector in surprising ways. Beyond the obvious appeal to collectors of photography, this talk will interest pretty much anyone who has an interest in the medium. But photography is not the sole topic of interest here. Anyone who has a passion for contemporary art and the role of the major auction houses in that market will be curious to hear what Ms Bell has to say.  

This is the second talk of the ongoing PGH Photo Fair Speakers Series. The first was delivered earlier this December by the curator and author Marvin Heiferman to a jam-packed Carnegie Museum apartment space in Lawrenceville. Following the format of this earlier event, Bell’s presentation will include a conversation with me followed by audience questions.

Top it of with gold glitters and cat eyelines.

I also use red lipstick with a hint of pink. A shade that is going to "refresh" the whole look.

ZA Plumper Lipstick in Pink Pearl and Candy Pink Review

These babies here are my daily lipstick. I use these everyday for college, office and even just for hang out with friends. I bought this preloved but still in perfect condition! 

Product Description ( )

Give your lips perfect clarity and depth with our new lip items."Fill-up collagen" replenishes your lips with rich moisture while "Plump-up pearl",with its light-diffusing effect, makes your lips look incredibly plump and smooth. It has ten shades, mine is Pink Pearl and Candy Pink.

Pink Pearl
is a barbie bubblegum pink, somehow nude. But do not worry because it does not make me look pale because it is very sheer.

Candy Pink
is a pink with more warmer tone. The color is kicking more than Pink Pearl

Amount: 3.5 grams


Packaging: ZA lip plumper appear in this silver – mirrored plastic packaging. It is certainly not cute, but smells *mature* hahaha very classy and I am proud bringing this lipstick around in my cosmetic pouch.

Ingredients: Very moisturizing! I eat a lot, so my lipstick gone most of the time. I reapply so many times and it does not dries out my lips. The formula does not sink on fine lines.

I love the colors. They are just perfect and sheer for daily. I won`t look too much but looking fresh at all times.

Smell nice. It smells like bubblegum. But, no worries! The smell is faint and it goes upon application. I like it a lot, at least it does not smell and taste like wax.

Candy Pink - Pink Pearl

Pink Pearl

Candy Pink


Poor staying power. It stays just one or two hours, but yeah, I also treat this lipstick as half-lipbalm, so I do not mind with the staying power.

ZA lips plumper that I have is not very pigmented. It is sheer and glossy.

Here i use Pink Pearl. Nothing too much. Just a hint of color and gloss. 
Beautiful MLBB (my lips but better) color for the day


ZA lips plumper is great for everyday lipstick because they are moisturizing. 
If you are looking 
for a pigmented lipstick that has a great staying power, than this line is not for you. I personally will repurchase when I run out because the colors are PURRRfect.

Rating 4/5

Chicas, CHRISTMAS is tomorrow!
I am so excited.
What are you doing for Christmas tomorrow?
I hope it will be a great one

Olay Natural White Foaming Cleanser Review

Since i am running out of my Hadalabo Gokujyun Facial Foam,
I start to reach out my stock box and find this OLAY Natural White Foaming Cleanser
I have had this for months and only using it now.

50 grams

Around 10.000 or about $1.
 I am not quite sure >.<, it has been long since i bought this

  • Packaging ~ The tube is sturdy and looks just like normal foaming cleanser. I just love the sturdiness, I feel safe bringing this around in my bag.
  • Consistency ~ Runny and a little bit like gel. Clear in color.

It has this nice faint smell but not too overpowering. The cleanser smells like floral 

I have to pour quite a lot in my hands. 
Albeit the FOAMING CLEANSER name,
It is actually not very foamy.

The bottomline is the foaming cleanser does not make my face dry.
It certainly brings out this fresh and smooth feeling after face washing

- Affordable and widely available
- Does not make my face dry
- Smells nice
- Sturdy packaging
- Creates smooth feeling after washing my face

- Not foamy


P.S. I update my blog layout. Literally, it took me two days to edit this and that >.< Omooo, I almost give up after looking at the alien language of CSS. hehehe. There is still many aspects to improve and i want to know your opinion. What do you think, chicas?


Maybelline Hyper Sharp Liner Review

 Maybelline is literally launched a penliner with a very SHARP tip.
The tip is 0.05 mm!
Curious about this pen liner? 
please scroll down below :)

It is retailed at 69.000 or around $7. I got mine at the nearest Maybelline Counter.


- Applicator : Applicator is very fine and easy to use.
 It feels just like lining my eyes with marker. Very easy. The point is sharp. I love it. Lining a thin line is no problem now.

 - The color is black, though not opaque enough. Very pretty.

- It dries fast also. Neat application is a total go with this eyeliner.

- It is available everywhere in Maybelline counter across Indonesia


- Packaging : So – so. Just black.

Applicator : Due to its fine tip, sometimes it is so wiggly. I have monolid, so when I want to line a thick eyeline, I have to layer so many times.

- Lasting Power: I mean the lasting product of this eyeliner. It only stays 2 weeks after I bought it. It totally dried out afterwards. I was so sad, because I certainly have high expectation for this eyeliner. How come it only lasts two weeks? Not too mention I do not use this everyday and I use this only for the tip of my cat eyeline.

It does not smudgeproof. When I sweated and carelessly wiped out the sweat near the eye, the eyeliner smudges. I did this smudgeproof test for you to see. When the eyeliner is wet and wiped, it smudges.


Maybelline Hypersharp Liner is one of the best drugstore pen liner available in Indonesia. Other brands usually produce eyeliner with brush applicator more. 
If you are looking for a pen liner like Dollywink, maybe this one is more affordable choice. The applicator is fine and color is pretty black. 
But, as for me, I won`t repurchase because it only lasts two weeks. 
It maybe only me, though. Has anyone experience the same problem? 
Moreover I love to do thick eyeline and Maybelline Hypersharp is not the best in store for drawing thick eyeline.

Rating: 3/5

It is Mother`s day here in Indonesia,
I thank you, all mothers who had done good deeds for their family
