Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil "Ransom" Review and Swatches



I guess we all agree that Urban Decay knows how to throw spark in our eyes through its 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil that has a large selection of color from metallic bright fun to wearable natural shade like matte brown, copper or black. They provide 40 permanent colors and sometimes they launch a few brand new limited edition colors mixed with permanent colors in set. We can choose any attractive shade that we want to play as well as the finish. I was captivated by the beauty of Ransom, its bright purple with pink and blue reflection is unique and cute but sad news for you who haven't seen or tried this color because it's discontinued from their permanent line.

Ransom is not sparkling, not exactly matte either. The pigment is sheer and it needs to be layered to build the intensity. It has waxy texture that glides on lids easy. And it feels comfortable to wear in waterline. It can be smudged before drying.

Thing to be noted -  some eye pencil products on the market are really easy to transfer (usually the drug stores product) and some are not. And Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Pencil is categorized as the product that has great staying power especially under the normal circumstances. But for some people who have crazy greasy eyelids like mine, we always have problem with any eyeliner pencils. Whatever the brand that we use -  it tends to drag into eyelids or lower lash lines. But how messy the transfer is, it depends on the quality of the product itself. The migration of Ransom is not that messy compare to Etude Styling Eyeliner.

In this case, i have tips for people with oily lids. Do not wear eyeliner pencil by itself. You can improve its longevity by applying it over a good eye primer.

Price
IDR 270.000

Pros

  • It is safe for waterline 
  • The color is cute and different
  • The staying power is great

Cons

  • It has to be sharpen 
  • It is less pigmented

Overall, Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Pencil Ransom is a unique eyeliner color that gives a soft sheen
and recommended for waterline. Needless to say, this color shouldn't be discontinued from their permanent line.

Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet #38 La Fascinante Review & Swatches




This rainy season changes the game of beauty look. My current mood is red lips and my favorite one (in this season) is Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet 38 La Fascinante.

Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet has different case from most lipsticks’ packaging in the market. This one attracts the beauty hunter with its “click” opener, you can simply press the bottom side of the lipstick (where the Chanel Logo is in) to open the case. The "click" case plus gold and black color makes the product look sleek and classy. The other thing that you can’t resist is the nice smell, it’s not strong but it’s very addictive - i can smell it all day ;).

La Fascinante is blue-based red with berry undertones. On the tube, the color looks darker (looks like browny red) than on the lips. As their claim, the texture is velvet, smooth, and lightweight. Don't get surprised with the finish. It's a matte lipstick but you won't get a flat matte - it's another kind of  matte - it reflects l
ight. It applies a bit shiny for the first few minutes, but after it dries it will look semi matte.

For a fairly pricey lipstick, it will let you down because it lacks substantial staying power compared to some other true mattes like MAC Retro Mattes. I found the product was still quite intact after three - four hours without having greasy food, a lot of drink or talking.

Pros
- Comfortable to wear (weightless)
- Pigmented
- The color is suited for daily use
- The scent is nice

Cons
- It is not long lasting 
- Pricey
- The color is not solid
- Transfer a bit

Price 
IDR. 470.000

Conclusion
For me, La Fascinante is pretty - i love how it looks, it feels and smells. Although, the color is not super fantastic or unique, it looks muted and wearable on lips, unlike the other matte products that look statement and fake. It's kinda shade that you can wear everyday as it yields a pigmented stain in one swipe - so you can achieve not "so bold" look and its formula is easy to work with + it doesn't dry lips. For whoever with chapped lips and look for matte lipstick - i would recommend this product - it's a holy grail - you still get the matte look without need to prepare your lips with balm which often defeats the look of a matte and your dry lips saved from being emphasized.

Laura Mercier Oil Free Tinted Moisturizer in Bisque Review and Swatches




Some of you may walk in my shoes, living beauty, sleeping beauty and breathing beauty. There are some steps that i have to go through everyday before starting my activity, what else if not 'Beauty Regimen'. From moisturizer, sunblock, eye cream, primer to foundation - this kind of morning madness makes me crazy. And sometimes in hectic days or in vacation - i just want to skip all those 'wasting time' steps and simplify everything without feeling guilty. Thanks to anyone who invented tinted moisturizer. It's a time saver as i would like to call.

Another challenge for me is to find a tinted moisturizer that works best for my oily skin. I want natural looking complexion without looking too matte or greasy but still get kind of hydration that doesn't clog my pores. There are million of products out there but what came on my mind was Laura Mercier since it is designed to enhance skin tone and add a natural glow. So I picked Laura Mercier Oil Free Tinted Moisturizer to try. There are 15 shades available in 3 different undertones which are pink, yellow and neutral. My shade is 'Bisque' - it is light to medium with neutral undertones and it's really match to my skin.

It promises "give skin a healthy 'no-makeup' look with a soft hint of colour that evens and enhances without hiding the skin. This award-winning tinted moisturizer can be used in place of foundation for a natural appearance while adding a healthy glow to the complexion. The lightweight formula provides ideal protection from the sun's harmful, damaging rays with broad spectrum SPF 20 sunscreen. A perfect blend of skincare and makeup that helps control oil breakthrough and gives skin a sheer hint of colour for a healthy, natural glow".

It contains

  • (Nude, Porcelain, Sand, Fawn, Almond, Tan, Walnut): Active Ingredients: Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate, Ethylhexyl Salicylate. Water (Aqua), Disiloxane, PEG -30 Dipolyhydroxystearate, C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Glycerin, Isohexadecane, Cyclopentasiloxane, Phenoxyethanol, Boron Nitride, Jojoba Esters, Magnesium Stearate, Sodium Dehydroacetate, Squalane, Laryl PCA, Tocopheryl Acetate, Tetradibutyl Pentaerithrityl Hydroxyhydrocinnammate, Isopropyl Titanium Triisostearrate, Disodium Edta, PPG-15, Stearyl Ether, Dipotassium Glycyrrhizinate, Methylparaben, Propylparaben. (May Contain) +/-: Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Iron Oxide (CI 77492), Iron Oxide (CI 77491), Iron Oxide (CI 77499)
  • (Bisque, Caramel, Mocha): Active ingredients: Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate, Ethylhexyl Salicylate. Ingredients: Aqua (Water), Disiloxane, PEG-30 Dipolyhydroxystearate, C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Glycerin, Isohexadecane, Cyclopentasiloxane, Phenoxyethanol, Boron Nitride, Jojoba Esters, Magnesium Stearate, Sodium Dehydroacetate, Squalane, Methicone, Disodium EDTA, Methylparaben, Pentaerythrityl Tetra-Di-T-Butyl Hydroxyhydrocinnamate, Propylparaben, Lauryl PCA, Tocopheryl Acetate, PPG-15 Stearyl Ether, Isopropyl Titanium Triisostearate, Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate. (+/-): CI 77891 (Titanium Dioxide), CI 77492 (Iron Oxides), CI 77491 (Iron Oxides), CI 77499 (Iron Oxides)

If this product is your first TM, do not surprise with its formula that feels and smells like sunscreen as it has broad spectrum SPF 20 properties on it. It's thick, slick, and sticky but it doesn't feel heavy at all once the product is on.

Although it claims as oil-free but it doesn't leave complexion matte and dull, whereas it gives natural sheen finish (not too dewy) which i love. Unfortunately, i found my face getting away too shiny after quite some time of wearing it. Apply the product sparingly and add a translucent powder on top of it will help this situation.

It moisturizes and events out my skin tone with minimal coverage. It can be built up to achieve more coverage without looking cakey. It does not completely hide minor blemishes and dark circle. So, to cover them i use a light concealer to keep my skin looking as natural as possible.
 
To apply this TM is really easy, you can choose to use your clean fingers or a stippling brush but make sure to put it evenly or you will wind the product up clumping. The staying power isn't as long as a full on foundation, it wears off throughout the day especially on my T area.

Price

USD 43 

Pros
  • It has broad spectrum SPF 20
  • It has moisture protection
  • It is a time saver
  • It is lightweight
  • It leaves natural glowing skin
  • The coverage is sheer and buildable
  • The plastic tube makes this product easier to come out and to bring everywhere you go 

Cons
  • The wear time is not long enough 
  • For oily skin - it will look too greasy after a few hours

Conclusion
With Laura Mercier Oil Free Tinted Moisturizer, you got all-in-one skin care and make up in one product. In addition to give skin a healthy glow and allow it to breathe, it also works as skin protector from harmful effects of the environment and damaging rays of the sun.

Recommended
  • For anyone who doesn't want to waste your time and complicate your life with any kind of skin cares and make ups
  • For you with sensitive or oily skin who needs a product that features moisturizer without looking matte and gives 'no make' up look

Not recommended
  • For anyone with poor skin condition who wants to hide it with full coverage
  • For oily skin - i think it's better not to use this product in hot weather because heat will cause skin greasy easily

Read this review in Bahasa

Beberapa dari kalian mungkin menjalani kehidupan seperti yang saya jalani, hidup, tidur dan bernafas dengan 'beauty'. Ada beberapa langkah yang harus saya lalui setiap hari sebelum memulai kegiatan, apa lagi kalau bukan 'Beauty Regimen'. Dari pelembab, tabir surya, krim mata, primer sampai alas bedak/foundation -  rutinitas di pagi hari seperti ini membuat saya gila. Dan terkadang di hari yang super sibuk atau pada saat liburan - ingin rasanya melewati semua tahapan yang 'membuang-buang waktu' tersebut dan menyederhanakan segala sesuatunya tanpa rasa bersalah. Terima kasih kepada siapapun yang telah menemukan tinted moisturizer. Saya menyebut produk ini sebagai 'penghemat waktu'.

Tantangan lainnya adalah menemukan tinted moisturizer yang cocok untuk jenis kulit saya yang berminyak. Saya ingin kulit wajah tampak alami tanpa terlihat terlalu matte atau terlalu mengkilap tapi tetap mendapat kelembaban yang tidak menyumbat pori-pori. Ada jutaan produk di luar sana namun yang terlintas di benak saya adalah Laura Mercier karena produk ini dirancang untuk memperbaiki warna kulit serta memberikan kilau alami. Oleh karena itu, saya memilih Laura Mercier Oil Free Tinted Moisturizer untuk dicoba. Tersedia dalam 15 warna dengan 3 undertones yang berbeda yakni pink, kuning dan netral. Warna saya sendiri adalah 'Bisque' - ini adalah warna untuk kulit terang ke medium dengan undertones netral dan warna ini benar-benar cocok untuk kulit saya. 

Produk ini menjanjikan "memberikan tampilan 'tanpa make up' yang sehat dengan warna lembut yang dapat meratakan serta memperbaiki warna kulit tanpa menyembunyikannya. Tinted moisturizer yang memenangkan penghargaan ini dapat digunakan sebagai pengganti alas bedak/foundation untuk tampilan alami serta menambahkan cahaya pada kulit wajah. Formulanya yang ringan memberikan perlindungan ideal dari bahaya sinar matahari dengan kandungan tabir surya SPF 20 UVA/UVB. Sebuah perpaduan sempurna antara perawatan kulit wajah dan make up yang membantu mengendalikan kadar minyak serta memberikan sedikit lapisan tipis pada kulit untuk kilau alami yang sehat".

Kandungan dalam produk
  • (Nude, Porcelain, Sand, Fawn, Almond, Tan, Walnut): Active Ingredients: Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate, Ethylhexyl Salicylate. Water (Aqua), Disiloxane, PEG -30 Dipolyhydroxystearate, C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Glycerin, Isohexadecane, Cyclopentasiloxane, Phenoxyethanol, Boron Nitride, Jojoba Esters, Magnesium Stearate, Sodium Dehydroacetate, Squalane, Laryl PCA, Tocopheryl Acetate, Tetradibutyl Pentaerithrityl Hydroxyhydrocinnammate, Isopropyl Titanium Triisostearrate, Disodium Edta, PPG-15, Stearyl Ether, Dipotassium Glycyrrhizinate, Methylparaben, Propylparaben. (May Contain) +/-: Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Iron Oxide (CI 77492), Iron Oxide (CI 77491), Iron Oxide (CI 77499)
  • (Bisque, Caramel, Mocha): Active ingredients: Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate, Ethylhexyl Salicylate. Ingredients: Aqua (Water), Disiloxane, PEG-30 Dipolyhydroxystearate, C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Glycerin, Isohexadecane, Cyclopentasiloxane, Phenoxyethanol, Boron Nitride, Jojoba Esters, Magnesium Stearate, Sodium Dehydroacetate, Squalane, Methicone, Disodium EDTA, Methylparaben, Pentaerythrityl Tetra-Di-T-Butyl Hydroxyhydrocinnamate, Propylparaben, Lauryl PCA, Tocopheryl Acetate, PPG-15 Stearyl Ether, Isopropyl Titanium Triisostearate, Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate. (+/-): CI 77891 (Titanium Dioxide), CI 77492 (Iron Oxides), CI 77491 (Iron Oxides), CI 77499 (Iron Oxides)

Jika produk ini adalah TM pertama yang kamu punya, jangan heran dengan formulanya yang terasa dan berbau seperti tabir surya karena mengandung SPF broad spektrum 20 di dalamnya. Teksturnya sendiri tebal, licin, dan lengket namun tidak terasa berat sama sekali ketika dipakai.

Meskipun produk ini mengklaim bebas minyak namun tidak memberikan tampilan kulit matte dan kusam tetapi sebaliknya dia memberikan hasil yang benar-benar saya suka yakni natural bercahaya (tidak terlalu mengkilap). Sayangnya, (menurut pengalaman) wajah saya menjadi terlalu mengkilap setelah beberapa jam memakai produk ini. Gunakan produk sedikit saja dan tambahkan bedak tabur translucent di atasnya akan membantu memecahkan masalah tersebut.

TM ini melembabkan dan meratakan warna kulit saya dengan daya tutup/coverage yang sangat minimal. Dapat digunakan layer demi layer untuk mendapatkan coverage yang lebih tanpa terlihat cakey. Produk ini tidak sepenuhnya menyembunyikan noda-noda ringan di wajah dan lingkaran gelap di bawah mata. Jadi, untuk menutupinya saya menggunakan concealer yang ringan agar kulit saya terlihat sealami mungkin.

Untuk menggunakan TM ini sangatlah mudah, kamu bisa memilih memakai jari yang bersih atau stippling brush tapi pastikan untuk mengoleskannya secara merata atau kamu akan membuat produk jadi menggumpal. Daya tahannya tidak selama daya tahan yang dimiliki oleh alas bedak/foundation, ketika dipakai seharian produk ini luntur pada daerah yang berminyak yakni pada daerah T saya.


Harga
USD 43

Pro

  • Mengandung perlindungan matahari UVA/UVB SPF 20 
  • Mengandung pelembab
  • Menghemat waktu
  • Ringan di kulit 
  • Memberikan hasil kulit yang tampak cerah alami
  • Daya tutup/coveragenya tipis namun dapat ditambahkan
  • Kemasannya yang terbuat dari plastik membuat isi dari produk mudah untuk dikeluarkan dan juga membuat produk ini gampang untuk dibawa kemanapun kamu bepergian

Kontra   

  • Daya tahan/waktu pakai tidak cukup lama 
  • Untuk kulit berminyak - akan terlihat lecek/terlalu mengkilap setelah beberapa jam 

Kesimpulan
Dengan Laura Mercier Oil Free Tinted Moisturizer, kamu dapat all-in-one perawatan kulit wajah dan tata rias/make up dalam satu produk. Selain memberikan tampilan kulit sehat berseri dan ruang untuk kulit bernapas, produk ini juga bekerja sebagai pelindung kulit dari efek berbahaya lingkungan serta sinar matahari.

Direkomendasikan

  • Bagi siapa pun yang tidak ingin membuang waktu dan mempersulit hidup kamu dengan berbagai produk perawatan kulit dan make up 
  • Bagi kamu yang memiliki kulit sensitif atau berminyak yang membutuhkan produk dengan pelembab tanpa terlihat matte dan memberikan tampilan 'tidak memakai riasan/make up'

Tidak direkomendasikan

  • Bagi siapapun dengan kondisi kulit yang bermasalah dan ingin menyembunyikannya dengan daya tutup/coverage tinggi 
  • Untuk kulit berminyak - menurut saya akan lebih baik untuk tidak menggunakan produk ini di cuaca yang panas karena panas akan menyebabkan kulit gampang berminyak

Make Up For Ever Lift Concealer Review and Swatches #2 and #3




Everybody wants perfection but nobody's perfect. We try to cover up flaws in various ways, one of them is with concealer. Concealer is used not only as a magic wand to hide or minimize the appearance of blemishes, under eye puffiness, scars, skin discolorations, or other areas of the skin that look less than flawless, it can be used to improve the appearance of features too. There is no reason not to love and play with it but don't go with the wrong product - instead of making the problem areas that you want to hide look better - you may attract attention to it.

There are lot of things going on with our skin after a certain age, we want to conceal imperfections without looking like have little patches dotted over the face. So why not talk about Make Up For Ever Lift Concealer whose formula contains Tensine, an active ingredient with skin-firming properties for the eye area, and vitamins A and E which rejuvenate the skin.

It's the product that i recommend to wear everyday because like most typical concealers' packaging which come in plastic tube, it's portable. The other reason is the thin texture which is easy to blend with brush or fingertips. It's slightly thicker than foundation but not denser, and has a mild powder scent. The coverage is light to medium, buildable and creates smooth finish.

It covers minor blemishes and fine lines. It has brightening effect that helps to highlight under eye bags and dark circle. It naturally gives them an illusion of "fresh and awake" eyes without completely eliminate them. It's good for anyone especially for them whose skin around the mouth and eyes are dry because it doesn't settle into fine lines or crack. So it will save them from being emphasized.

Pros 
  • It doesn't crack  
  • It doesn't look cakey 
  • It moisturizes skin

Con
No big selection of this product since it comes only in 5 different shades and it's more beige in tone. You may not find the flattering shade for your skin but mix some colors will help you to get your perfect match.

Conclusion 
MUFE Lift Concealer offers multiple benefits by hiding the signs of aging with its lightweight texture that is least likely to migrate throughout the day and cause breakouts.

Recommended for
Normal, combination, oily, sensitive and mature skin.

Pandora Vanilla Shake in Grey Review + Pictures


Contact lenses with enlarging effect are being an epidemic in this country in the last decade. From celebrities to common people, everyone uses it. It is very tempting, many brands offer a various unique patterns as well as the colors and believe me if you are a soft lenses whore you will buy not just one but few - again and again. It helps to create an illusion of bigger eyes. That is why people especially who have Asian eyes love it. 

You may not believe, but I have been using soft lenses for about 16 years now. Although, I had eyes “LASIK” surgery 2 years ago but ya sometimes, I still wear it for photography needs. Black, blue, brown, green, grey, pink, transparent, violet, 1 tone, 2 tones, 3 tones, you name it I have been tried all of them. And now I am going to review about Pandora Vanilla Shake in Grey.

Pandora is a product from Japan, comes in a girly pink blister packaging. It has 5 different color choices such as blue, brown, green, grey, and pink with diameter 19.5 mm, water content 52%, life span 1 year and available from plano till -8.00. 

Pandora Vanilla Shake Grey in specific is 4 tones lenses with a black, grey, yellow and a bit of violet color, mostly you will see it as grey. Its light color and “sunflower” kinda pattern (like my friend said) give a “spooky” kinda look or I use to call “cat eyes” rather than natural. So if you expect a “dolly” look – you are not gonna get with this one. 

This product is big but it is not that big. If you think it will not fit to your eyes, let me tell you something, 19.5 mm is only the effect – the diameter of these lenses itself is just 14.5 mm, so do not worry – it is super comfy to wear. The lenses are very thin and I almost feel like I am not wearing any.

Since eyes “LASIK” my eyes became so sensitive and tend to dry. Sometimes, when I am wearing this product i feel fine but on the other day it could be so dry after 3 - 4 hours – depends on the places I have been (in an air conditioner room it gets dry quickly) but it is not a big problem, i can use eye drops. 

Overall, I like this product. From the color to the pattern to the comfort, all good. If you are looking an enlarging effect contact lenses which gives you a “spooky” kinda look then I definitely recommend this product for you.

Will you give a shot to these lenses? What kinda look you will you make with them if you are wearing it? Come share with us…

Lensa kontak dengan efek memperbesar mewabah di negeri ini dalam satu dekade terakhir. Dari selebriti sampai masyarakat awam, semua orang menggunakannya. Produk ini sangat menggoda, banyak merek menawarkan beragam pola yang unik serta warna dan percayalah jika kamu adalah orang yang menyukai lensa kontak, kamu akan membeli tidak hanya satu tetapi beberapa - lagi dan lagi. Softlens membantu menciptakan ilusi mata yang lebih besar. Itulah mengapa orang terutama yang memiliki mata Asia (sipit) menyukainya. 

Kamu mungkin tidak percaya tapi saya sudah menggunakan softlens selama sekitar 16 tahun sampai sekarang. Meskipun, saya melakukan operasi "LASIK" mata 2 tahun lalu tapi ya kadang-kadang masih suka memakainya untuk kebutuhan fotografi. Hitam, biru, coklat, hijau, abu-abu, merah muda, transparan, ungu , 1 warna, 2 warna, 3 warna, sebutin saja, saya pernah mencoba semuanya. Dan sekarang saya mau mengulas tentang Pandora Vanilla Shake Abu-abu. 

Pandora adalah produk dari Jepang, datang dalam kemasan blister berwarna merah muda yang girly. Produk ini memiliki 5 pilihan warna yang berbeda seperti biru, coklat, hijau, abu-abu, dan merah muda dengan diameter 19,5 mm, kadar air 52 %, masa pakai 1 tahun dan tersedia dari plano sampai -8.00. 

Pandora Vanilla Shake Abu-abu secara spesifik adalah lensa dengan 4 warna yakni hitam, abu-abu, kuning dan sedikit warna violet, tapi secara keseluruhan kamu akan melihatnya sebagai warna abu-abu. Warnanya yang terang dan polanya yang hampir menyerupai "bunga matahari" memberikan tampilan (seperti yang teman saya bilang) "seram" atau saya biasa menyebutnya "mata kucing" daripada tampilan yang alami. Jadi, kalau kamu pengen tampilan seperti "boneka" – kamu tidak akan mendapatkannya dengan softlens yang satu ini.

Produk ini besar tapi tidak besar-besar amat. Kalau kamu pikir tidak akan pas di mata kamu, saya kasih tahu 19,5 mm itu cuma efeknya saja – diameternya sendiri hanya 14,5 mm, jadi jangan khawatir -  softlens ini nyaman sekali dipakai. Lensanya sangat tipis dan saya sendiri berasa seperti tidak memakai apa-apa. 

Sejak operasi "LASIK", mata saya menjadi sangat sensitif dan cenderung kering. Kadang-kadang, ketika saya memakai softlens ini saya merasa baik-baik saja tetapi dilain hari softlens bisa berasa kering setelah 3 - 4 jam pemakaian tergantung  tempat  juga sih (di ruangan ber-AC biasanya cepat sekali kering) tetapi ini bukanlah masalah besar, saya bisa menggunakan tetes mata. 

Secara keseluruhan, saya menyukai produk ini. Dari warna sampai pola sampai tingkat kenyamanan, semuanya oke. Kalau kamu nyari lensa kontak dengan efek membesarkan mata yang memberikan kesan "seram”, pastinya saya akan merekomendasikan produk ini buat kamu. 

Apakah kamu mau mencoba lensa ini? Tampilan apa yang ingin kamu buat jika kamu memakainya? Yuk berbagi dengan kami…
