Review : Peripera Peri's Water Tint in Orange Juice


I know all of you must have been waiting for this post, ahem, I know you want this—both of the product and the review. Ready to see and hear what I think about ‘this’ product?
If you’ve already watched my video here where I talked about things that I brought to school everyday and ahem, I labeled it as a “favorite”. Can you guess what’s that?


Please welcome, Peripera Peri’s Water Tint in Orange Juice! Ta~daaaaaaaaaaaa



Cute Packaging!
Just like the Cherry Juice one, the Peri’s Water Tint in Orange Juice also has the same packaging as the red one. The art on the box is also done by the talented artist Mari Kim.


Strong Baby!
Still, the bottle is made of glass! Very risky to be broken once it’s dropped, but trust me I once dropped my makeup pouch accidentally and it didn’t break LOLOLOL okay don’t try this. You may not be as lucky as I was! But I should really admit, the bottle is sturdy enough. I’m a sloppy person as well, I also often to just throw my school bag anywhere. But still, ahem, this tint’s bottle doesn’t break into pieces! Also, its cap is not loose, it’s tight enough it won’t open by its own self and spills some product around. *get slapped*



Natural and Bold in One Product……Major Love!
Wonder why I don’t bring the red one to the school instead of this orange one? It’s because of the orange version of Peri’s Water Tint has natural finish on my lips! You will just need 5 dots in total on your lips to bring out a fresh, and healthy flush on your lips. Trust me it won’t be as orange as it’s seen in the bottle if you use very little amount of it!


Again, the color is true as what you see in the bottle just like the red one. I love how it turns out on my lips, it’s a very true color yet it’s very buildable! Go bold with 2-3 swipes, and your lips will turn very orange (still in a pretty way, yet!) just like if you’re wearing bold lip color.

sorry for the imperfect lips ;A;

Two-in-One
I use this product both for my lips and my cheeks, and yes it performs really outstanding and pretty! It gives orange flush on my cheeks, really gives a playful and sweet also the fresh look on my face. It’s very great to have your cheeks and lips the same color for a natural look. Total love! No need to bring blush leh~

using it on my cheeks~ :3

˟ Said it, The Price!
The price does matter! People, including me always measure things from its size, then compare it with the price given. Well I don’t think I can end this thing up in 6 months, tho! But still, the price is somehow overwhelming for this tiny product. It’s IDR 100.000 or $9 for 6.5ml, I got this from Dreamie Chuppa on Facebook. It's quite hard to find sellers who bring this product too! Quite expensive, but worth the price I said! Moreover, a little goes a long way with this product. Remember dat!

˟ Staying Power, puh-leaase?
I don’t know what’s wrong with me leh? Many people said this tint has great staying power while me, hereby saying that it has no good staying power especially after eating or drinking! Without any activities that would involve your lips and mouth, this lip tint would stay there alone around 2 hours, max 3 hours. But boom, it just disappears after I had my meal and left no stains behind. Geh?

my puh-leaaase face XD

Results
Loving it! I should say that I love this one far muchhhhhhh than how much I do toward the red one. This works on me in any occasions and both for day and night look, from natural to bold look. I rarely bring blush now—what am I to do with blush if I got all I need for my cheeks in it? The cute packaging is also another thing I cannot let it to be kept in my drawer, yet psssst, my friend keeps telling me that my lips is gorgeous with it and asking what product do I wear! She’s now in love with this, too~


Score

Last Words?
Of all the good and bad things about this product, I should really highlight on this one serious matter : the bottle, is still risky, yes! I do prefer a plastic bottle instead. Despite of its sturdiness I mentioned above, I have heard some stories about this product got broken once it’s dropped onto the floor. So be careful with it! And well, I said it—I was just lucky enough to have it still okay after all the roughness it’s been through!


Review : Face on Face Two Way Cake & Blush On + BONUS FOTD!


Face on Face adalah brand kosmetik baru dibawah naungan PT Rohto Laboratories Indonesia. Tentunya produk ini adaah produk buatan lokal kita. Eits, singkirkan dulu semua pikiran buruk mengenai produk lokal. Kalau banyak dari kalian yang sudah mengenal produk Hadalabo yang ramai dibicarakan awal tahun 2012 yang lalu, nah Hadalabo ini juga adalah salah satu produk buatan PT Rohto. Kini Hadalabo versi Indonesia sudah tersebar di supermarket lokal, dan banyak orang yang lebih cocok dengan versi tanah air-nya ketimbang dengan versi Jepangnya (salah satunya saya, ya?)

 




Face on Face Nourishing Two Way Cake in Tropical Beige






Di post kali ini aku akan membahas dua produk langsung. Yang pertama adalah FoF Nourishing Two Way Cake. Too bad, I got this in wrong color! Warna yang aku dapat adalah warna tergelap yang tersedia, sedangkan aku mungkin malah butuh warna paling terang dari bedak ini! But it’s okay, let’s see if I better go tanned? *kedip*

It’s Pink!
Ada apa antara aku dengan warna yang satu ini? Well, secara otomatis aku akan langsung jatuh cinta dengan segala sesuatu yang berbau—berwarna, ahem—pink! Dan two way cake ini hadir dalam warna pink. Suka!



Base dan Finishing!
Bedak ini adalah two way cake, dapat digunakan dalam dua cara yaitu kering dan basah. Jika kamu ingin hasil akhir yang lebih natural dan lebih ringan, jangan basahi spons dan langsung saja tepuk-tepukkan bedak pada wajah. Jika kamu ingin coverage lebih, bisa basahi spons dengan sedikit air, lalu colek bedak dan tepukkan pada wajah. Two-in-one banget, kan? Bisa jadi base makeup, juga finishing product!



Kosmetik yang Ramah untuk Kulit
Hyaluronic acid yang terkandung dalam bedak ini juga bukan hyaluronic acid biasa, melainkan adalah improved hyaluronic acid yang menjaga kelembaban kulit 2x lebih baik. Formula satu ini juga dapat membuat kulit terasa kenyal. Jangan salah, meski hal ini terdengar agak seram bagi pemilik wajah berminyak-kombinasi seperti aku, oil control dari produk ini oke banget! Sekitar 4-5 jam sebelum kamu butuh time to touch up. Kelembaban kulit terjaga, minyak pun terkontrol. Check!


Spons Terpisah dengan Produk!
Bencinya aku dengan bedak compact biasanya adalah, si spons yang cenderung terletak diatas produk. Hal ini benar-benar mengganggu meski ada plastic pemisah, khususnya bagi model two way cake seperti ini. Spons yang basah dapat membuat produk jamuran, ewww! Face on Face Nourishing Two Way Cake ini meletakkan sponsnya dibawah produk, dan pada slot terpisah. Love! Jadi lembab pun, tidak akan mempengaruhi produk diatas ya~

Buildable, Nggak Cakey lho…
Produk ini buildable loh! Untuk pengaplikasian layer pertama, mungkin redness dan jerawat tidak dapat tertutup secara sempurna. Penambahan layer kedua, ketiga, dan seterusnya tidak akan membuat tampilan wajah kita menjadi cakey lo! Wow, eh?


Harganya!
Harga untuk Two way cake ini hanya IDR 28,000 atau $2.4. Amazing, eh? Produk oke dengan harga super terjangkau, nothing can beat it!


˟ Rapuh?
Sayangnya, packaging dari produk ini sepertinya rentan pecah apabila jatuh. Plastiknya terkesan flimsy, dan nggak sturdy (kokoh) menurutku. Jadi hati-hati ya membawanya!
Powder dari produk ini juga agak powdery, atau menyerbuk, jadi bisa mengotori sekitar. Jangan terlalu keras meng-swipe spons, untuk menghindari bubuk yang berterbangan.


˟ Hati-hati dengan Oksidasi!
Bedak ini beroksidasi! Warnanya memang nggak cocok dengan warna asli kulitku, dan bedanya jauhhhhhh sekali. Setelah kira-kira 1 jam, bedak ini beroksidasi pada kulitku dan menjadi makin gelap. Haaaaa, sayang sekali!

jadi kusam ya muka aku? karna shade yang salah, sih! >w<
Results
Aku suka banget sama two way cake ini! Jujur aku akui, sedikit aku remehkan produk lokal khususnya di bidang kosmetik ya. Namun benar-benar produk ini works great on me. Nggak cakey, natural finish dan nggak menimbulkan alergi! Sayang, warnanya nggak cocok untuk kulit wajahku, jadi I cannot wear it outside home (;A;  ) aku akan beli lagi di shade kulit aku, Silky White!

Score



Face On Face Nourishing Blush On in Natural Glow


Mini Baby!
Ukuran dari blush ini mini, kecil, dan mudah dibawa tanpa memakan banyak tempat. Blush ini juga sama mengandung improved Hyaluronic Acid yang tentu lebih oke dari Hyaluronic Acid biasa.


Nggak Kalah dari Produk Luar, lho?
Color payoff dari blush ini benar2 mencengangkan! Pigmentasinya tidak kalah dengan produk luar. Hanya dengan satu sapuan, produk ini sudah memberi warna cantik pada pipiku. Minim fallout juga lho~


Yang aku suka dari blush ini adalah, staying powernya! Ya, blush on ini tetap bertahan di kedua pipiku sampai 4 jam. Lama juga kan? Kulitku kombinasi-berminyak, namun blush ini tetap stay beautiful sampai waktunya aku menghapus make up.

Natural Finish!
Blush yang aku dapat adalah Natural Glow, varian warna oranye dari dua pilihan warna blush Face on Face. Seperti namanya, blush ini memberi wajahku glow yang benar-benar natural. Warnanya oranye, sekilas terlihat seperti matte namun bila diperhatikan lebih lagi kita bisa melihat ada silver sparkles yang barely seen. Saat diaplikasikan di pipi, almost matte. Love!!


(lagi-lagi,) Harganya!
Blush on ini hanya 22.000 di supermarket dekat rumah aku. Benar-benar terjangkau, dan aku nggak pernah menyangka blush ini sebagus produk seharga ratusan ribu?

Results
Blush on ini nyaris sempurna untukku! Pigmentasi dan staying power di kulit kombinasi dan berminyak seperti aku tetap oke, dan finishnya juga natural nggak berlebihan meski di build berulang kali. Harganya, ooh-la-laaaaaaa hampir 1/10 harga blush kesukaan aku. Bakal beli lagi blush on ini di varian pink-nya! (Psssst, thank you Face on Face, produk ini ada di wish list aku lho sebenarnya!)


Score

Dan inilah thoughts aku mengenai dua produk keluaran Rohto Mentolathum Indonesia! Bagaimana dengan kalian? Ada yang sudah pernah mencobanya? Aku harap aku bisa menang di kontes My Pretty Diary Contest ini. Wish me luck, and so do you! Oh ya, jangan lupa kunjungi Official page Face on Face Indonesia. Mereka banyak mengupdate quote, gambar, juga tulisan inspirasi dan info produk, lho. Sangat menghibur!

Coming Back Soon......hopefully?


Hayyyyyy girls! I’ve been MIA these last few days eh? My laptop’s adaptor was broken la, it had electrical shock inside the adaptor body itself like years ago but the damage just took its toll by now..gee. Have not bought the new one, because I still get no time to go outside and shop. Bah.
 And also by this post, I’d like to tell all of you girls that I’m going to be MIA again in next few weeks….until the unknown certain time! The reason? Well..my house is under renovation, and I don’t know when exactly they will finish with stuffs!

I hope I could be back here soon, as soon as possible girls! Hopefully I can write some posts during my camp too which is going to start tomorrow, because I will be bringing my laptop with me—well bringing this buddy is all because I will work as the video editor along with my friends for the sessions there asdfghjkl, so let’s hope I could find free time to work on my reviews.

Here's a sneak peek for the upcoming posts!
 

Now let’s wish me a goodbye and  luck for tomorrow’s camp as I will be the coordinator of documentation and publication there. Gotta be a busy bee. Ciao for now, XOXO to all of you!

Review : Korres Zea Mays Blush 016 Pink


From all makeup or beauty products that I own, do any of you have the ideas what items or products that I have the less? The answer is……………

BLUSH!

LOL funny rite? I only own one blush, it’s Etude Lovely Cookie Blusher in no.2, it’s a pinky coral color which I love very much. I’ve always wanted to buy more blush, but well my choice will always be that pinky-coral color! Wanting to try other color blushes, and well just got the courage when Keyzee Cosme was holding a sale. What did I buy back there?

A Korres Blush!


Natural Ingredients
Using zea mays starch in the ingredients, this blush will give you the luminous, smooth and beautiful glowy finish. I love how Korres brings natural ingredients in every of their products! Chemical stuffs sometimes just cannot do what God has put into the natural things He made, rite? *wink*


Does as It Claims…LOVE!
As what I said above, well it has a super pretty color on face. And as it claims, it has luminous finish on cheeks, not matte but not shimmery, just luminous pretty glow; and a velvety texture when a brush is swiped upon it. Not powdery, this blush also doesn't make my skin break out!


Packaging? Check!
The packaging, should I say more? LOL you can see it yourself! It’s super luxurious, yes luxurious I say. I guarantee that nobody will tell you this blush looks cheapo or whatsoever else. The outer box is awesomeeeeeeee with the abstract painting on one side, and the professional looking blush description on the other side. And the blush packaging itself? A pretty dark bronze colored box, which is actually a duo-toned with gold fine sparkles! Woo!



A Universal Blush for Everyone…
Surprisingly, this pale pink blush works on both yellow toned girls, pink toned ones, also the neutrals babes! Isn’t that another plus point for this blush? This looks great on people with pale skin, to those with dark seductive skin. Amazed enough?


Super Mega Awesomely Pretty Color!!
I know, I know! It looks terribly awful in the pan. A dusty pale pink color, duh I even got shocked very much when first opened it! I think the seller has sent me the wrong color… 


The color is super ugly on pan, I should admit it. But being positive (ahem, hold there girls!) I tried to swatch it on my hand. DUH! A sheer color, even sheerer than my chalky Etude Lovely Cookie Blusher. Is this blush really $24 for retail? They must be kidding me. But the optimistic me, wanted to try this cheeks. Gave it a try soon, and well…………………………………….IT’S A SUPER PRETTY COLOR!!!!!


It’s a baby pink color, a healthy pink color on me! I can barely tell if I wear any blush. This blush has a natural pink color on cheeks which looks like a healthy flush! No wonder they rate this a perfect score on Make Up Alley, eh? A new love alert!

see how cute the color on ma face? :3

˟ Expensive?
The price! I want to get this more, if it’s lesser than $24. Bah. It’s for retail in Sephora girls, if any of you want to buy this blush. Or simply go to their website, www.korres-usa.com. But for the quality, I’m honestly considering to repurchase once I hit the pan. Anyway, I found this on KeyzeeCosme’s sale for only IDR 90.000!!!! HAHAHAHA WHAT A DEAL RITE? I have read some reviews about this blush back there and was pulled away after seeing the price, lol but 90.000, $9? You think you could just pull yourself away? Take the risk, honey!

˟ Shy Baby, Hates that Cam!
This blush is not for photography purposes. I was like duh, to swatch it and to capture it in my FOTDs below! It’s very hard to capture the flush because of its natural finish. I built the color up a lot, and still it’s super hard to be captured especially when I took photos in overexposure lighting.

gotta punch my cheek to pop the color out! XD

(PS : Joveeta got this in Peach, you should visit her blog for its review! I told her the sale LOL, there were only two shades and two items left so I told her to grab the peach one. No regret rite, pretty Jovee?)




Result
What should I say? I LOVE THIS BLUSH. I DO I DO I DO! *caps lock gets abused* I really do. The color on the pan surely looks intimidating, but you see it yourself. On my cheeks? Who cares it looks bad on pan, it looks extremely gorgeous on cheeks! This product definitely deserves a perfect score for me. I go for expensive things if it really is worth the bucks! One swipe done and it’s very sheer, but it’s actually buildable. Build the color to your own liking pink color!


Score

Last Words?
If you’re looking for a great, supaaaa great blush, please I beg you go for it! It compliments everyone with any skin tones. What else would you need? This may not suitable for photography purposes due to its finish, but this surely will be a great blush for everyday use.
