Review : FAFI for MAC Fun 'n' Sexy Lipstick

Summer is finally here all right. I've been waiting for this for a long time. It's time to put your drinks up and party on galz!!! Of course holiday is also here, my favourite word of all time "HOLIDAY". So because it's summer and all MAC is launching their new product, FAFI for MAC. It's a limited edition one and the packaging is designed by French artist Fafi. The collection consists of an array vibrant color, bold shades that'll be sure to please all make up adventurer. So I got mine from my sister because she bought it and didn't like it because of the vibrant colour because it's too tacky. Well I've guess, so that's why I volunteered myself to have this lipstick because of the bold colour of course!

Review : TONY MOLY Help Me Lip Balm

My BF bought me this lip balm for our 22 months anniversary gift. I've never heard about this lip balm before so this will be my first time EVER trying out Tony Moly products. So my first impression of this lip balm is "What an interesting name?". Honestly I thought it was a treatment for dry-flakey-lips type because of the name HELP Me... So I didn't think I needed one of those and also I was kinda furious at my BF for buying something like this (especially because I don't have a dry lips). Ahem.............................

Useful description behind it. Psstt... this is how you turn on the alarm, girls.

Cute Round Package..
The outer packaging is very simple nothing special about it, it's only made from plastic and have the usual shape like the others lip balm. The one that caught my eyes is the round-pink-jar. So cute and also it has a hot pink colour which I love.

Super love the eye-catching vibrant colour. Especially the font of the HELP ME, uber cute. And also there's a drawing of a small megaphone and a lips which is also cute. Super PERFECT to be the first aid kit lip balm.

Ring The Alarm!
There's one special thing about this lip balm that separates it from the other lip balms and that's............ it has an alarm of it owns. The keychain here isn't permanently attach to it, actually it's the key to ring the noisy alarm.

So after you pull the keychain you'll hear this really really really super LOUD noise. It's like the sounds of the police's car but much more terrifying all right. You could even scared a cat with it ; believe me I've tried. The noise is really loud that I couldn't even took this photo in one shot. It just mess up my brain and I think I was deaf for a moment there. Good thing it doesn't give me any permanently damage to my ears. =.=

Here's the source of that dreadful loud noise!

So what if I pull it over and over and over again until the batteries runs out? Well sorry to say but I can't help you with that. My advice is to buy another lip balm if you miss the sound that much. Because I don't think you can actually change the batteries, because there's no access to get there. If you really want to change it, I guess you have to tear this lip balm apart but don't really do that! Because it's juat an opinion not an actual fact.

It Gives a Lots of Benefits
After you open the "cap" of the jar you will see a white colour separator made from plastic. After you took that off you'll see that the lip balm has a milky colour but after you applied it, it'll become transparent. Mine is the #1 and I guess the #2 has a pink colour lip balm which gives a lovely pink lips colour.

Just because it's small and adorkable doesn't mean it doesn't has any benefits. You'll be surprise when I told you that this little lip balm has a lots of benefits. For those who hate greasy lip balm well this is perfect for you because it's 100% non-greasy and also moisturise your lips really well. It can makes your lips less dry and make it more softer. So for those who has a boyfriend and want to to "make-a-move", this lip balm is perfect because when your lips touch his he'll think "OMG! Her lips is so soft like a pillow". So try to make your move girls and don't worry about chopped lips anymore. Also another benefit from it that it makes your lipstick last longer. So just apply this with your finger on your lips and just apply your lipstick on top of it. Believe me it works. (L-Men quotes ^^)

Can You Say Cheap???
Just because it comes in cute jar and has a loud alarm, doesn't mean it's expensive. It's actually cheap. Thee retail price of it is around $10. So I guess it's cheap for a lip balm with so many advantage.

Use It As a Keychain
This lip balm is also useful for those who loves travelling because this little thing doesn't need any space in your bag. You can always hang it on your bag and use it as a keychain. It's very practical because you don't need to search your bag to find it and also it looks cute.

Lack Of Hygiene? :o
The only down side of this product is that you have to use your finger to apply it. It's really gross because you have to dip your finger in it twice maybe and that's so not cool. But if you use a brush to apply it, I'm afraid it's going to ruin the surface of the lip balm. But if you use your finger like immediately without washing it first, you could catch a germs or something from it. Grrr.... it make my hair stands up just to think of it =.=

4 / 5

For now I love this lip balm and I think this is better than EOS lip balm that I reviewed just a few days ago. It has a great small jar which is practical to carry around and also it moisturise your lips perfectly. It's very cheap too.. Not to forget if someone tries to steal your bag don't forget to pull the keychain to ring the alarm. I'd have to try that ASAP on my friend Udin. Can't wait to see his face.

Review : EOS Lip Balm Sphere

Sorry for my long absent guys because I've been very busy taking care of my online shop and also helping my BF to get back in shape to get reaady to compete in the annual POPMA competition which is like the olympic games but it's only held in my school. So it's close. ^^

Photo credit via google

So today I'm going to do a review about EOS lip balm. I bought the Summer Fruit and Strawberry Sorbet one, well I was planning to buy the sweet mint but they ran out of those so I changed it to Strawberry Sorbet. FYI, the sweet vanilla, blueberry potion, and watermelon wonderland is from the EOS lip balm Alice In Wonderland series and I've been searching for them but I haven't found it at any local online shop I know. That really really sucks.. =.=

❤ Egg Shape?
One thing that caught my eyes at first is the egg shape. It's very cute, unique, and also it's really easy to find it in your bag because of the round shape. So CUTE..^^ Also the colour of these little lip balm is very vibrant.

Okay I must admit I'm a sucker for these lip balms. Well you know me I never search any product first if I want it. So I just buy it and if the results is bad I usually just left it on my drawer (It's a bad habit). So that's why I just bought these because of the cute shape not because it has a good review and stuff because I rarely read any review. But you know what I don't regret buying these because the shape is totally CUTE!!!

That's right girls these babies are 100% NATURAL and it's 95% organic. So we could know for sure that it doesn't contains any dangerous chemical. But for me I don't really care about the ingredients of it or if it's natural or not. I buy anything that looks appeal to me and also other products that are very recommended by everyone too..

❤ It's Very Cheap
That's right y'all.. Beside the cuteness of the shape and 100% natural I would like to announce to you that these lip balm are very cheap.. The retail price for it is only $3.99 and it is easy to find in any drug store (in USA of course). Well it was kinda hard to find an online shop that sell these with a really cheap price. I got these for IDR 55.000 each at a local online shop. Of course they already ran out of the sweet mint.. T.T So sad. But some online shop I found sell this for over IDR 100.000 and I think that's crazy! That's too damn expensive (says the girl who never think before buying anything). Trust me girls if you ever find anyone sell this over IDR 100.000 then they're freakin nuts. Also don't worry girls just because it's cheap doesn't meant the flavors are cheap too. Because it doesn't it's very great and alsoo not to over powering. I tried to search for it on Sephora website but they don't sell EOS, so it's a shame because I've been looking for the Alice In Wonderland series.

✖ Moisturise Much?
The cons of these lip balms is that it doesn't moisturise my lips. It wears off quickly (like in 15 minutes or so) and also it doesn't change after I applied it 10 applications per day. So I have to use it again and again and again. It's so not practical. So it's such a waste to apply it again and again because it doesn't change.

✖ What Happen If You're Already Halfway? 
Well out of curiosity I search for it. I was curious what will it look like if I already halfway of this product or maybe how does it ran out.

Image credit via google

And this is how it looks like after you're done using all of it. At first I thought it was a different kind of EOS lip balm because honestly it does looks like Manggis an Indonesian fruit you know. So I was surprised to know that this product is only half filled. Maybe that's why it's very cheap I guess. So after you get to this stage I suggest you apply it by your fingger because I think it's painful to use that directly on your lips.

4 / 5

I think I will repurchase this because I love the shape and the smell of it. It's perfect for me to use it as a daily basis. I could use this to school too because it doesn't make me looks like I have applied any lip balm on. So it's just the perfect kind of lip balm for and of course it's cheap.. ^^

Review : Harajuku Lovers "Wicked Style" Perfume

I guess this perfume is already launched about 2 years ago in 2011 if I'm not wrong. But I got this perfume just last year when I went to Singapore. So this perfume was launched on Autumn 2011 by Gwen Stefani and I think she called it "Wicked Style" because she wanted to show her dedication to Tokyo's wild fashion. Wow. Can't argue with that can't we?

Harajuku Lovers Wicked Style Music is a floral woody fragrance with apple notes, juicy fruits, bergamot, jasmine, gardenia, fuchsia, peony, cedar, musk, and amber. This one is inspired by the Japanese rock musicians and eccentric style with bright make up and colourful clothes. The nose behind this little girl is Adriana Medina.

❤ The Uber Cute Hot Pink Box

Descriptions of the mascot "Music"

Super love the cute hot pink box from this fragrance, it actually comes in different colour for each perfumes. So there's a yellow one and I think there's also the red one. Hmmm... I forgot about that. Anyway I think this box is great for those who loves collecting cute stuff and also it has all of the description for this perfume. Talk about cute and full of information. ^^

❤ Collectable Bottle
This edgy perfume also known as the super cute bottle. It's inspired by the Japanese girls of Harajuku and it comes in different bottles too.. So cute.. So perfect to be collected and be put on my make up table.

So you can also collect the figure only if you think that the bottle is not important. You can just pull it off and make it as a decor in your room .. PERFECT~

❤ The Smell Is Addictive 
The first time I sprayed this perfume on, all I can think about is fruits. That's right the smell is so fruity with a blend of flowery scents. It's fresh, playful, and so perfect for Summer. Which reminds me that Summer is just around the corner. So I guess I should be wearing this perfume anywhere I go now.. Hehe

✖ Last Long? Nope.. :(
That's right girls this little cutie here doesn't last that long. I've sprayed mine just 4 hours ago and I can't smell the scent any more. Which means I need to carry this anywhere I go if I want to smell good all the time. So not practical.

✖ Need More Perfume? 
This perfume is the large one. There's actually the smaller size but I bought the biggest one. You know what this contains too little perfume for a large size bottle. Also the price is so expensive that I think I will be using this little by little from now on. :(

3 / 5

Maybe I won't be buying this anymore because it's so expensive and also there are a lots of better and cheaper brands of perfume I can get. But the smell though is really good and addictive makes me want more. My BF also said that the smell is very fresh and so perfect for the fun flirty type of girls.

Review : YSL Rouge Personnel Lipstick #29

SO.... This is the new lipstick from YSL and that is... Tadaaaaa...... YSL Rouge Personnel Lipstick #29. This lipstick is still new, I think it was launched around May 2013 if I'm not wrong. But I didn't buy this because my sister bought it and she didn't like the colour so I decide to just take it. If not she'll throw it in the trash like the others. =.= So as you can see from this picture there's a different from the usual picture I took, that's right because now I added a background so it wouldn't look so plain and boring. Anyway my blog is going to get a makeover soon. SO it's a good time to start changing everything to get a new fresh start.. ^^

Sorry for the bad resolution so hard to get the words to looked clear.

 ❤ Pretty packaging
Love the super simple packaging of this lipstick <3 It's just simple, so it looks clean, and it looks pretty on my make up drawer. I've always been a big fan of YSL lipstick packaging because it's always unique every time they launch a new lipstick. ^^

I really really love the top of this lipstick. It's black, so it looks really clean, shiny, and also you can also use it as a mirror also. Because it's like a black mirror, so convenient. Also the colour of the packaging is according to the colour of the lipstick inside of it, so it's easy to spot your fave lipstick colour if you have more than one of this baby!

Hell no to CRACK..!
One thing I hates it's a crack lips. Uhhh.. I just can't stand seeing the surface of lips cracks like an open egg. Well this lipstick emphasizes the cracks on your lips! Can you believe that?! I must admit that this is an expensive lipstick but you what it emphasizes the cracks on my lips and also it doesn't moisturise my lips too. That's really too bad for a named brand to have a lipstick like that. WTH?!

❤ Flirty colour

Super love the colour results of this lipstick. I don't know why my sister didn't love this colour because this colour is so me.. It's flirty, young, fresh, LOVE LOVE LOVE. I mean what kind of guys wouldn't want to see a girl use this kind of colour on their lips? Because I know my BF would love to see me in it. I guess this colour is just perfect for teens like me and also for women on their 20s and early 30s. Because it's so young looking colour.

One strike is not enough

Urrgghh.. This is what annoys me the most. I needed at least three strikes to achieve this colour. Because one strike is just not enough, it's too light and almost not seen by mere eyes. But after two strikes the colour started to show. So the third strike is to make it perfect and more like a show stopper. But the good thing is that this colour stays this way (it doesn't change even if you've applied it for 2 hours).

4 / 5

Will I repurchase this lipstick? Well maybe I'll buy it but maybe I'll try that's much more cheaper and much more better. Because I think this time YSL doesn't create this lipstick as good as it should be. I'd rather to buy another Dior Lipstick if there's any other colour I love. But overall it's just enough to be a good lipstick at this rate.

Review : Biotherm Aquasource Eye Perfection & Skin Perfection

Just bought the 2 of these last week because I ran out of my Biotherm moisturizer. So trying new things are good la.. ^^ (P.S. I took these photos using my IPOD, I tried to get the words from the box as clear as possible can't achieve that with my old camera can't we.)

The first review is going to be the Biotherm Aquasource Skin Perfection

 Closer look

"24h moisturizer high-definition perfecting care with Aqualiss complex" (product claim)

The back side of the box

❤ Love the new packaging

This is the new packaging from this moisturizer it used to be much more slimmer so it's taller (not practical to be carry around). This one is much more shorter and I guess more practical because it fits my make up pouch. So it's easy to carry it around especially when I go for a long holiday. Can't live without my moisturizer.

If you're planning to carry this around in your purse or your make up pouch then there's no need to worry girls. Because this moisturizer comes with a plastic separator or plastic top (word I like to use to call it).

PROOF that's this case is super secure!

Love it that it comes with no-spilling guarantee . So I could carry this around anywhere I go. Or maybe some of us prefer to move it to a little bottle it's much more practical I guess, but I rather leave it in place.

 It has great quality + Effect X3

My first thought about this product, IT SMELLS GOOD. No kidding I really love the smell of it, it's so soothing and relaxing. That's why I love to use this as a day cream and also a night cream it's because of the smell of course. If my moisturizer has a horrible smell then I rather throw it away because that doesn't work for me.

Super LOVE the texture of it, it's perfecting, it has a cooling effect once you've applied it. Also it's non-sticky and non-shiny. It's also easily absorbed. So perfect for me. Sufficient hydrating power and kept my skin hydrated for at least 4-5 hours before the oils comes back to surface.

✖ Expensive!! $$$$$$$ T_________T
Yes... Yet again it's very expensive but as they say beauty is pain but for me beauty is wasting money T_____________T Can't believe I wasted a lot $ for this and they doesn't provide any spatula with it. So it's really messy too especially because the packaging is a rounded tube. *cry on the corner*

Got this list from here. So as you can see that it contains fragrance and a little dose of alcohol which I think it's not suitable for sensitive skin. So it's a toxic for some skin, but normal skin type will do just fine with this although I don't recommend oily skin type using this product. I think it's not the perfect moisturizer to be use daily by oily skin type.

5 / 5

Overall I love this moisturizer it's perfect for me. It's a nice cooling moisturizer which is perfect for people like me who lives in Indonesia where the weather is always HOT. I love how my skin is velvety-soft after I use it, although they lied about the moisturized skin for 24 hours because it only lasted about 4-5 hours from my experience. But this will be my favourite moisturizer at the time (until I find another 1 that's much more greater than this).

Now let's move on to the second review.. Shall we? ^^

So this is the Biotherm Aquasource Eye Perfection. I've always wanted to try an eye cream but as you know me I never knew what I wanted to buy (also I don't know what's use of an eye cream =.=). But finally I bought this eye cream from Biotherm, well I didn't have any intention on buying it actually but the staff there insist me on buying it and I forget why I should buy this. I think it's because it's from the same line as moisturizer which is Aquasource so it's a great combo. Or perhaps because it's suit for a teenage girl like me on my age (I'm 17 not 20 years old =.=). Forget about it, now it's review time~

Back side of the box

❤ Unique packaging <3<3<3

I must say I was surprised to see how small it was, I thought it would be placed in a tube or something like my mom's DIOR eye cream but whatever it's my first experience trying an eye cream so might as well try this. Like I said it has a cute packaging like a tooth paste but I think it's similar to the Kiehl's packaging I reviewed a few days ago. But whatever..>.6

❤ Easy to apply 

The box said that this is a "360 degrees hydra-massagers for eyes". So it's designed with 3 roll-on balls which is supposed to be like a massaging tool for your eyes. So you roll this around your eyes and it's supposed to be relaxing. Back to the topic, this little gadget and gizmos are easy to apply on. Because we don't have to worry that it'll spill because it's super secure with the 3 balls covering the holes. And all you have to do is just roll this on your eyes 360 degrees around your entire eyes. Easy right? ^^

❤ Say goodbye to Panda eyes and puffiness!! X3

So when I first tried this I used this at night, when I woke up in the morning I was surprised to find that it reduce my dark circles and also the puffiness under my eyes! *rejoice* This is the BEST eye cream ever..!!

5 / 5

I think this is the perfect eye cream for everyone who has problem with dark circles and puffiness under their eyes. Because I think this eye cream reduce them both. It's kinda cheap too you know if you bought it at the official counter.
