Silky Lips Magic Pink Lip Balm

As the new product from the Silky Girl Line, 
I think this Lip balm is worth to try

Price = 19000

It is actually lip balm that turns to be lip tint. It is greasy when you first applied. And then, as if it absorbs to the lips, it dries out and leaving me fresh cherry red lip. The color itself is surpsisingly long lasting. That is why i call it a tint.

Mine is in Cherry. I think they carry strawberry shades too

The packaging is cute. It is pink! and it is actually very thin, so it is going to fit in any make up case hehehe
It is twist off tube and actually when i drop it, the cap is always fell. Means what? Not too tight?

They claim to locks in 6 hours moisture, and soften the lips.
Yes, my lips becomes softer but i think i need to reapply after three hours.

It is white color and when swiped, it turns to be pink

I loveee the color, so cute and it dries and becomes tint after a while
- Affordable
-Available everywhere
- Cute packaging
- Thin 
- Moisturizing

- It feels greasy when first applied

Rating 4/5


NYX Round Lipstick in Harmonica

NYX Round Lipstick is very infamous due to their affordable price and great range of color. 
I am just soooo lucky to get one of them to try myself how great this baby is.
Is it like what people say? Or just another lipstick?

Check it out, ladies!

Mine is in Harmonica. And actually there are 124 shades! JAW DROPPED #
It claims to be anti smudging, velvety and long wearing.

Price : 44.000 rupiahs in online local store

As for the packaging it comes in twist off lipstick tube, just like another lipstick.
It looks cute and professional in black. I like their simple lace that they draw around the brand. I think it is adding some flair to it. The bottom is also clear and this way i can see what kind of color indise. Overall, The packaging is actually looks quite cheap, but yeah, it is! 



Harmonica is light baby pink color that looks really nice if you mix with a deep red color applied in the middle of your lips. The pigmentation is light, and not that great. I do need to swipes more to get more pigmentation

The lipstick spreading thin and actually i love more constant pigment. It settles on fine lines and highlighting my chapped lips. Eck! The wear time is okay, 4 to 6 hours which is nice for an affordable lipstick. It tasted weird like soap and too creamy. If you left it outside the lipstick is going to melt and even losing its original shape.

TIPS: If this ever happened to you, then just put the lipstick inside the fridge and it will turn okay and harder. or simply depot it.

- Professional looked
- Okay wearing time

- Smell and taste like soap. Eekkkk!
- Not too pigmented
- Too creamy and cannot stand the heat

Fred Bidwell wows crowd at PGH Photo Fair Speaker Series #4

Fred Bidwell put all of his experience as an advertising exec to good use last Wednesday night as he gave a polished, funny, engaging and informative talk in the auditorium of the Warhol Museum. Sorry to say, his lovely wife Laura was not with him as she had broken her wrist earlier in the week after slipping on the floor at O'Hare airport. Her bright, open spirit was missed, but Fred came through in a big way.

Starting with his genesis as a collector -- including showing a Polaroid portrait of him done by Walker Evans back in the day -- and finishing up outlining the new Bidwell exhibition space, "The Transformer Station", Fred covered many of the important questions asked about collecting and collectors in today's market. Always self-effacing, but direct and factual, it was a treat to hear Fred's views about art in Pittsburgh for the first time.

Thank you Fred Bidwell for making the evening the success that it was, and thank you to the Warhol for hosting our nearly full house in its beautiful auditorium. Next up is NYC artist/collector/curator, David Howe also speaking at the Warhol on April 10th. Remember, the talks are the 2nd Wednesday of every month until the PGH Photo Fair in May!

Quick Review On Etude House Skin Malgeum Smoother and Emulsion

Hi dearest! When i went for a week trip last month, i brought this miniatures of Etude House Skin Malgeum Smoother along. Uwaaa, all i can say is that having miniatures like this was very very useful. I did not have to bring along bottles of skincare!

And this is my review about Skin Malgeum Smoother,
I would mostly talk about how the skin malgeum affect my skin, allright?

The miniatures come in sachet like this. Just so practical for travelling


The freshener is the one on the right. Clear liquid one. It is just like a water, clear with faint hint of fragrance which is going to be great for you who has sensitive skin. I use this by pouring some into a cotton pad and dab it along my face. Hmm. It gives a fresh and cool feeling upon contact. It takes away the dirt and making my skin moist and supple.


Emulsion is cream + moisturizer + essence in one. It is useful and does not break me out. The moist feeling is so so compared to the moistfull series. But i think for you who has oily skin, you will like it. It absorbs quickly into the skin and it is not greasy, means my bb cream sits better  ^^

Tips: Use tap tap method to apply both freshener and emulsion, it absorbs better

Overall, i like these duos. Last time tried to bought these when on sale  but unfortunately they were sold out huhuhu.. My hadalabo skincares are almost run out now, so maybe i will try more of skin care samples to find one that suit me. Anticipate more of skincare quick review, aight?

Rating: 5/5

Ok, until next time girls! And do not forget to take care of your skin..

ELF make up mist and set

Ellow, ladies! How are you doing?
It has been raining a lot in Surabaya and it has been successfully dissuade me to go outside
In this beautiful rainy day, i am reviewing ELF make up mist and set.
I bought this at Twentyseven shop when she has a sale and i got this one for really cheap.

Normal Price : $ 3/ 90000 rupiahs
Amount 60 ml

Key Features
Aloe, Green Tea, Cucumber and Vitamin A, C and E

About the product

This is a face mist to spritz to your face on your humid days. Hmm, do you know Evian? Then this is something like that. I ussually spritz this when i sweat a lot and my make up smears. I wipe with tissue and then touch up my make up.

The mist is great also to prep your face before doing the make up. It makes my face instantly moist, therefore the foundation sticks better and last longer. After doing the make up i spritz again and let it air dry. This step will make the make up last longer and look dewy.


The bottle looks okay. Black and look professional. It doesn`t look cute at all >.<.
But well, the bottle does the job. It is tight and all this time i never experienced any leaking.
The spritz is great also. It sprays evenly across the face and i do not need to push it hard to get the result i want.

TIPS: Give 20 cm distance when you spritz the mist, in one spray it covers the whole face. 

Product Review

The mist looks like water with no color, and it works on me. It makes my make up stays longer which i really need, especially when i go to party. If you ask me how long the mist hold my make up, then i would say around 4 hours. Do you know that make up smears and "move" when you sweat? Well this one prevents that happened.

Tutorial: Easy Brown

This month i am making a tutorial with brown eyeshadows.
Well, just a natural look that i want to share with you. 

Before - After

How i do the eye make up
1. From my NYX all that i`ve ever wanted pallete, i pick copper color and put it all over the lid using flat shadow brush.
2. Pick dark brown color and sweep it on the outer corner. Now, blend it forward covering the copper color. Blend, so there is no harsh edges.

3. I put white shimmery eyeshadow in the inner corner of lower lid, blending it with the dark brown color that i use earlier in the outer part of lower lid.

4. I line my eyes using Bobbi Brown Gel eyeliner in Black Ink, then wink it!

5. Next, i put falsies as close as possible to my actual lashes. Before that i curl and put a layer from mascara to my natural lashes first. I also define my brows using the Skinfood Choco Eyebrow Cake.

6. Done!! I just check the eye make up and make sure the falsies are intact and everything is well blended.

How i do the face make up

1. After moisturizing the skin, i put a layer of Bourjouis Foundation inVanilla Beige
2. For the blush, i use Silky Girl DUO blusher, concentrating on the apple of the cheek
3. I swap pink matte lipstick from Revlon Matte in Pink Pout

Aa, done!

I hope the tutorial helps

ECHO Art Fair in Buffalo call for submissions

I recently had the opportunity to meet the founder of a new art fair in Buffalo, New York, Frits Abell. He's doing grand work and reported to me that in only his 2nd year had attendance of 10,000! Wow. There's now a call for submissions for the next edition. Check it out nad be in touch with them if you think your work might be a good fit.

exhibitors for juried art fair and site-specific installations are invited to apply

Buffalo, NY — echo Art Fair, www.echoartfair.com, a juried fine art fair held in Buffalo, NY, announces the opening of its submission period for artists and galleries to exhibit at the third annual fair. The fair will take place September 7thand 8th, 2013 at the Buffalo & Erie County Public Library’s Central Library (BECPL), in downtown Buffalo, NY. 

The submission period opens Monday, March 4thand continues until Friday, May 17th, 2013 (midnight EST). Guidelines are available on www.echoartfair.com (Submission Info).

echo Art Fair is open to local, regional and international fine artists who work in all disciplines including painting, photography, sculpture, print, works on paper, video and mixed-media. Individual artists and galleries are welcome to apply. In its first year, echo’s single-day exposition drew more than 3,000 visitors; last year’s two-day event drew more than 10,000 visitors to the 17,000 square foot exposition space, and echo organizers aim to continue the momentum by increasing this year’s exposition space to 25,000 square feet.     

echo founder E. Frits Abell said of the location “The choice of the Library as a venue is ideal: it is larger than our previous venues, will be a raw , open space, it is well-ventilated and well lit--with floor-to-ceiling windows, and it is ideally situated in downtown Buffalo. Exhibitors will be very pleased with the space.” 

Jurors selecting this year’s exhibitors are: Tony Bannon, Executive Director, Burchfield Penney Art Center, Buffalo; Jax Deluca, Executive Director, Squeaky Wheel, Buffalo; Doug Dreishpoon, Chief Curator, Albright-Knox Art Gallery, Buffalo; Roberta Joseph, collector, Buffalo; Jonathan D. Katz, independent curator and Associate Professor of Visual Studies, University at Buffalo: and Maria Via, Director of Exhibitions, Memorial Art Gallery, Rochester.

Concurrent with the call for exhibitors is an invitation for site-specific installation projects, which complement, but operate outside of, the juried art fair. The site-specific proposals will be coordinated in collaboration with Hallwalls Contemporary Arts Center. A team assembled by John Massier, Hallwalls Visual Arts Curator, will review the proposals and select participants. 

echo Art Fair invites site- and event-specific temporary displays that respond to, or engage with, public areas within and directly surrounding the Central Library.  Artists of all media are welcome, including visual media and design works, temporary installations, temporary architectural interventions, time-based media, musical presentations, dance, movement art, theatre, and sound performance.

Abell said “The Library’s large entry-plaza, beautiful sight lines, and iconic mid-century architecture offer a wealth of potential for site-specific installations, particularly those that engage design or architecture themes.”

The submission period for both the juried art fair and the site-specific installations runs concurrently and will begin on Monday, March 4thand continue until Friday, May 17th, 2013 (midnight EST). Guidelines are available on www.echoartfair.com.

Bath and Body Works Pocketbac in Pink Bloom

Do you have Pocketbac?
I heard it is very famous in The States. 
Many online shops in Indonesia carries Pocketbac also, selling it with an affordable price.
Ussually 28.000 to 35.000 rupiahs for 29 ml

There are many scents, and mine is PINK BLOOM
I love the color and how it looks so bright PINK inside the bottle.
The bottle itself is sturdy and tight, i haven`t experience any spilling or whatsover.

This hand sanitizer contains alcohol. 
So when i pour, it is giving a cool sensation. After awhile, it becomes totally dry, and leaves of amazing smell! The smell is flowery, strong, and last long. Well, around 15 minutes i guess. But it does perform better than my usual hand sanitizer.

See the design? With the puddle? hehehe cute!

The hand sanitizer looks like this. Pink with smooth consistency. If you look closer, there will be tiny sparkles. My students love this sparkles very much. They said it looks pretty. Ussually without any reason they will pretend their hands dirty and ask for a hand sanitizer hahaha! Well, supposed you have such a cute and fragrant sanitizer, you will do that, won`t you?

This Pocketbac is part of a gift from Bunny Beaute.
Thanks Lianna for making me and my students happy!

Love ya all,

P. s:

Mustika Ratu Body Butter Jasmine

Hi beauties!
I am obsessed with smooth skin hahaha, who is not?
Body butter and body lotion are must have to me. 
Recently i find this local body butter that work great on me.
It is from Mustika Ratu, called Jasmine Body Butter

Amount: 200 g
Price: 36.000 rupiahs, or about $4, price may vary

I love to use body butter right after taking a shower then letting it dry for few minutes.
Jasmine body butter is one of my favorite because it is absorbed by my skin pretty quick, leaving it moist and not greasy. It smells great, unlike Susanna`s creepy jasmine smell, but instead it smells flowery, you can tell that it is not mere jasmine scent.


I bought the body butter and found that it was sealed with aluminium foil. Hygienic but it is difficult to open. The packaging is made of plastic, bulky but sturdy.

The cream itself is very buttery and creamy. Smooth with thick cosistency.

For me the body butter is worth buying. Even better than more expensive body butter. 
I can feel that my skin texture is a lot better after a week using the body butter. 
I am definitely buying this again

Quick Review: The Face Shop Jewel Therapy Rinse in Cherry Blossom

 Yesterday i tried a sample of The Face Shop Jewel Therapy in Cherry Blossom Rinse.
Rinse here means conditioner. I was confused when about to use this also as there is no description in English hehehe. Gladly i take time to ask Grandpa Google!

The full bottle is going to look like this. Pretty!
It contains 480 ml and suggested for normal hair

source: thefaceshop.com

I ever have the Jewel Therapy straightening essence and in love with the smell.
Same goes with the rinse here. It makes my hair glossy and shiny due to the cherry blossom extract. Too bad it makes my hair greasy especially near the root area. Well, maybe because my hair type is combination. 

The texture is light and not very thick.It is smooth and easy to spread along the hair strands. For me, i think the rinse will work great on normal to dry hair because it is quite moisturizing :)

Buy the full size? No, because it does not work on my hair type

Etude House Dear Darling My Blooming Lips Talk in PK 005, 0R 205 and BE 101 review

 If you have stay tuned in this blog, you have probably know that these were my Christmas Wishlist. I am really glad that i have these babies on my stash. They are really cute, aren`t they? 

There are 24 colors available and i get myself three of their hot colors. PK 005, OR 203 and BE 101.

Price : 70.000 to 80.000 rupiahs in online shop

source: google.com

I love the packaging because it is cute! Seriously i bought these only for the packaging hehehe
Etude house has made a great effort by adding details into the packaging. It comes with a glossy pink box. It has hearts all over and lace on the top of the box. Suppaaa cute!

This is the front part of the box. Looking great with pink crown and pink hearts

In the bottom of the box, printed the manufacturer date. I like this idea truly! 
The shelf life is ussually around 3 years of the manufacturing date and the expired date is 6 months after we open the box and actually use the lipstick.

Dear darling my blooming lips talk is packed inside a pink tube. Just like regular lipstick, really, when you twist, the lipstick comes out. Only Etude House made the packaging cuter. The tube looks princessey with pink ribbons and lace on the top. I think the tube is kinda bulky and not travel friendly though >.<. I never bring these babies for touch up. I left it and put it nicely on my stash, and they look just like ornaments! Prettifying!


Dear my blooming lips talk is creamy and does not have a weird smell. I feel comfortable using these lipsticks. It is prettifying about 2 - 3 hours and it will definitely be gone after eating something. The color is pigmented and cute. I like BE 101 the most! Now i will do swatches for you. But forgive me, the swatches would not be complete because i lost BE 101 (still crying over it) by the time i write this.

PK 005 is a cute pink color with a cool tones on it. It is very nice for everyday use, giving me that healthy pink lips without looking too much.

OR 205 is very orange with a warm tone. I ussually just swap it once concentrating on the inner parts of the lips to make it less striking.

Now, BE 101! Gladly i still have some swatch picture left and an FOTD.
BE 101 is a beige color with a pink tone on it. The most subtle and the best for everyday out of three of them. It is alot like my natural lip color so whenever i wear it, it seems like i don`t have lipstick on. Useless? No, not really, i still look more polished lha ^^


These lipstick scream out FUN out loud. Cute packaging, decent pigment and nice for feeling all princessy everyday. I recommend these for beginners who is in love for cute looking product without looking too much. If you are professional who is looking for serious lipstick that strike all day then this is off the list.

Until next time!
