Winterize Your Nails with JULEP

Hello everyone! Winter is coming.. for you guys out there. And for us here in Indonesia, rainy day is coming.. haha.
I think rainy days here a bit similar with winter, except the weather is much warmer and it's pouring water, not snow xp

Everyday I work indoor with very cold air conditioner. My hands and nails get dry so easily.

Well, lucky me. Julep sends me the tips for us who suffer dryness from the cold.

For me, I simplify hand and nail care.

First of all, I use vaseline petroleum to my hands and massage them before bed.
For daily, I use hand cream to moisturize my hands.
Not forget to clip my nails and remove cuticle after it. Soft and moisturized nails are easily to be shaped and cleaned.

Taraa... my clean and smooth hands and nails :D Very healthy looking after I apply vaseline petroleum overnight.

To beautify, Julep also recommend these colors to winterize our nails on this holiday season.

Which of Julep’s nail polish colors do you like? They are just beautiful and very winter theme.
Happy winterize your nails, girlies!^^

Privia V-Face BB Review

I have another review for Privia U brand. This time is BB Cream. My ultimate fave beauty product ever. I always crazy about BB Cream. This product is like my beauty holy grail. Can't live without it, always adore how its magic for my skin.

This is the BB Cream. It has high SPF. Nice right? The packaging looks beautiful and exclusive because of the metallic shine effect. So clever! And the pretty illustration on it makes me hard to resist.

Beautiful dancing girl 

The consistency of Privia U BB Cream. It's pretty thick. I love it coz it means high coverage (but still, lighter than foundation).
Blend blend blend

Noww... for my before and after.

You can see here, my redness and uneven skin tone is reducing. It also gives me a little bit glow.

My face looks clearer and brighter, right? it much nicer and can really see the difference in real life.

My thought: I do love this Privia U BB Cream. The coverage and the color is so nice, match to my tone. Not too light and not too white. The one I don't like is one of the ingredients. It contains talc. Errmm.. Maybe because it contains talc, so the BB Cream smells like powder talc? Does it even related? xp

For you who want another BB Cream to try, Privia U can be one of your choice ;D

In the beginning of this week I received exciting and cute eco beauty product sample from BEYOND. First of all, all I see was the cute bunny mascot in its tiny package bag. So so damn cute! After that I saw on the product. Oh wow, it's eco and without animal testing. *Clap*

So, this is the sample look. I posted on my instagram.

Privia U Glittering Shiny Lipstick-03.OR (Orange)

I had been wanting coral lippies, and I got it! xD
Actually, the color written on the packaging isn't 'coral' but 'orange'. I just think when I apply it, it becomes coral instead of orange. hehehe..

Don't want to spoil in the beginning. Just keep reading (:

See.. the lipstick color itself not that orange.

I love the packaging. Very exclusive with the fuschia transparent as the basic color and silver hologram for the decoration.

This is the color indoor


The color is popped more in real life

Color:   Texture:   Staying power:   

My thought:
Talking about its color it's a bit funny. First, the name is Orange, but I found out it's more coral-ish. Then when I apply, at the first you can see it has coral orange-ish shade, but after few minutes for an hour, it becomes coral pink-ish shade. haha.. 
I still love the color though! It's suitable for daily look or hang out look.
This Privia U lipstick is creamy but not too pigmented and hydrate. As you can see in my close up pic, it doesn't have smooth coverage on my lips. It looks chapped.

Until next time!

Beauty in U Gathering Event

Last Saturday I was invited by Beauty in U to their beauty blogger gathering event.

For introduction, Beauty in U open their first store here in Jakarta at Mall of Indonesia Kelapa Gading. They bring USA and Korean skin care and beauty product such as Wet n Wild, Privia U, The Skin House and more brands to come.

This beauty blogger gathering was held in Churreria MOI. When I arrived, Mas Fadil, the Marketing Manager of Beauty in U greeted me warmly.

On 3.30 pm, the event was started by Mas Fadli. He briefly explained about the event and introduce us to two other hosts.

This is Mbak Astri, the Beauty Editor of Joy Magazine. She explained the beauty and makeup trend for this Fall Winter season. She said, red color is very trending, especially for lipstick. Trend for this season also lead us to natural makeup but bold at the same time, like bold lip color, or bold smokey eyes.

Mbak Astri shared tips about making lipstick color on your own. You can apply eyeshadow after using lipstick. So the color you get will be unique (:

After that, there was makeup demonstration with Privia U products by Mbak Rachel, the makeup artist. I like her appearance. So cute ^^

Few makeup products that would be use for the demonstration. So many makeup tools. I felt like lame because I rarely use them and depend only with my fingers. haha.

Mbak Rachel said that Privia U has nanoparticle for its content. This will make the makeup more even to the skin.

Mbak Rachel applied makeup base to neutralize skin tone and make the foundation lasts longer.

Then, after the base makeup, foundation, concealer, compact powder, eye shadow, mascara, blush, lipstick and loose powder (all by Privia U), Voila! it's done!

The before and after makeup. Look at the natural Korean brows!

Okay.. The event is almost end, but first lemme take a selfie (I took this pic from Beauty in U's twitter)

There were few games to get interesting prizes from Privia U. For three people who were late (including myself) had to demonstrate using liptick as nice as you can without mirror, and another games was who had most lippies on her bag and there was best dress competition won by Neni from Kawaiifuku.

Even if we already had our hands with shopping bag, Beauty in U still have the real goodie bag for us! They're so kind.
We were showed to their store at GF and we can pick the goodie bag there.

Clean and spacious store
