L'Oreal Paris UV Perfect Instant White & La Creme True Match BB Cream

Hi all!!

Okay, like I promise you in the previous post, today I'll share my review about these face products from L'Oreal Paris.

1. L'Oreal Paris UV Perfect Instant White
The packaging is so simple and clean in soft pink and white color. Although it's made of plastic, it still looks modern and elegant. I love the lid design because it can avoid annoying spills around the lids (if you know what I mean, it's the common problem of liquid cosmetic products in a tube packaging).
The product texture is very light in a white pinkish tone. It can easily absorbs into the skin. The color will blend naturally into our skin tone. It's so easy to apply with fingers.
It contains of SPF 50 UVB, UVA and PA+++. So it can protects our skin quite longer under the sun.
The claim is "12 Hours Long Lasting UV Protector". We can use it after applying moisturizer on our skin.

Here is my skin condition without using this product:
And here is after I apply it to my entire face, neck and ears:
This product can slightly brighten up and soften my skin. It has a mild scent. I use this product everyday now, since the sun is super bright and super hot these days.. I apply an amount of this product after applying my toner, before using the BB cream.

2. L'Oreal Paris la creme True Match BB
The tube is also made of plastic in pearl & gold tones. The design is so simple and elegant, looks like an expensive product =)
I got an Ivory shade. The texture is quite light too and easily blend into my skin tone. It is so moist and soft.
It contains SPF 35 and PA+++. The claim is "24 Hours Moisture"

I can apply this product easily into entire face with my fingers. It's so easy to blend. The result is quite good lah! It has a medium coverage, as you can see in this picture:
This product can covers my vein and redness. But I still need a concealer to cover the blemishes. At least the color of my skin looks more even. Here is the closer look:
As you can see, my skin becomes smoother and moisten. 

After using this product, I usually continue to apply the makeup on my face. Here are some L'Oreal Paris cosmetics products that I used:
The final look..
Overall I really love these products. I use it everyday right now because it's so light and give a good result on my face! The staying power is quite good, althought it doesn't last for 24 hours as I expected, especially after I wash my face before praying.

My skin becomes a little bit oily after few hours using these two products together, but it’s still okay. I just have to absorb it with blotting paper and do touch up with powder. So maybe this product is more suitable for you who has a dry or normal skin type.

Hope this review will help you..

See ya!

Unboxing L'Oreal Paris Beauty Box

Hi all!!

I received so many beauty products lately and today I'm going to share one of it. Yeah, as you can see from the title, it's L'Oreal Paris Beauty Box. Actually I received 2 boxes, the September and the October edition, along with some Maybelline products. Here is the box, simple elegant black box with gold accent:

I won't write the product review one by one here, but I'll share it in the upcoming posts. So these are the contents of L'Oreal Paris September 2014 Beauty Box:
I got a facial foam for men! It's L'Oreal Men Expert Total Skin Renewer. Hehe.. I won't use it lah, but I will ask my husband to give it a try if he doesn't mind. =D
Maybelline Clean Express Miracle Water. I am a big fan of Maybelline makeup remover! I wish this product would has the same quality as the makeup remover =D
L'Oreal Paris Total Repair 5 Emergency Care, Shampoo and Conditioner (travel sizes). Actually, as a person who loves to change the hair colors, of course I ever tried these products, except the Emergency Care. My damaged hair becomes smooth and easy to comb if I use this conditioner. 
Maybelline White Superfresh compact powder and L'Oreal Paris Magique all-in-one compact powder. Surprisingly their packaging design look almost the same, except the color and the corner curves.
L'Oreal Paris Revitalift. I haven't try this product. I'll tell you after I give it a try, okay?
And here is the L'Oreal Paris October 2014 Beauty Box:
The contents are not as many as the previous box. The first product is L'Oreal Paris New Excellence Fashion Hair Color. The color looks pretty doesn't it? I will try this product next week because my baby hairs are already appear.. so my current hair color looks bad.. I will post the review right after trying this product! ^^
L'Oreal Paris Anti- Hair Fall Treatment. It consits of 6 small bottles.
Yeah, the bottle is so small, so cute! =D I plan to use this product after I dye my hair with the previous product. ;D
L'Oreal Paris la creme True Match BB. I'm using this product almost everyday right now and I love it!!! I already made the review too, and it will be posted after this blog post! =D
L'Oreal Paris UV Perfect Instant White. I also use this product regularly these days and already wrote the review along with the previous product. So, don't forget to read it! I'll post it soon! =D

NYX Butter Lipstick Review & Swatches

Hi all!!

I always love NYX Cosmetics products! They always have lots of shades and the price is super affordable! I always curious and can't wait to try everytime they launch a new product. This time I'm going to share my review about my new favorite lip color from NYX, yup, NYX Butter Lipstick!
The tube is made of colorful plastic (match with the shade), with transparent part in the middle, so we can see the color clearly. It is quite light, but it looks a bit fragile honestly. The plastic material reminds me of NYX lipstick tube, which is easily damaged =( But anyway, the design is quite nice and simple.
I bought three shades: Pops Explosif, Fireball Boule De Feu and Razzle Fiesta:
Here are the colors with & without flash:
The texture is very moist and a bit glossy, like butter. It glides right on my lips, and make them feel really smooth. The color is quite vibrant and buildable, you can see in these 3 pictures, from left to right; 1 layer, 2 layers and 3 layers of NYX Butter Lipstick:
Pops Explosif
Fireball Boule De Feu
Razzle Fiesta
Here are the swatches on my lips with & without flash on the left pictures and how the it looks like with a simple makeup on my face on the right picture:
Pops Explosif
This is a nude neutral shade but it doesn't make you look pale. It can be used for natural look or  simply combine it with smokey eyes makeup.

Fireball Boule De Feu
This reddish orange color will make our skin looks brighter. Use a sheer layer to get a fresh natural lips, use 3-4 layers for a special summer event.

Razzle Fiesta
I never get bored with this fuchia shade. It makes me look feminine and strong at the same time. Combine it with a light eyes makeup and you'll become the center of attention, trust me! =D

What I Love
- The color is buildable and super pigmented!
- The texture is very smooth and moist
- The matching color between the tube and the shade
- It has a fresh minty scent slightly
- The staying power is quite ok (depending on how much layers we use). More layers, stay longer =)
- It has so many color choices
- Affordable

Cons
- The tube looks fragile

Conclusion
I think this is a good lip color for any ocassions, formal and informal. It's also good for you who has a dry lips like me, but it would be better if we still using lip balm before applying this product. This is definitely a product which will always available in my makeup pouch! =D
Okay, that's all my review. I hope it's useful for you. =)

See you!
