Muslimah Eyeshadow & Lip Care Review & Giveaway

Hi all!!

Kali ini saya ingin membagi review tentang dua buah produk dari Muslimah Cosmetics. Udah pernah dengar? Muslimah Cosmetics adalah brand kosmetik dengan bahan-bahan natural dan halal dari Sophie Paris. Produk yang akan saya review adalah Muslimah Eyeshadow in Sapphire dan Muslimah Lip Care. Ini dia penampakannya:
 Sebelum mulai review, biar lebih jelas, yuk liat dulu TVC-nya:

1. Muslimah Eyeshadow in Sapphire
Packaging produk Muslimah semuanya berwarna coklat keemasan dengan desain yang simple. Termasuk eyeshadow palet ini:
Dibalut dengan paper box dengan label Halal di belakangnya. Packaging berbahan plastik ini ukurannya sangat compact jadi ngga ngabisin space di dalam makeup pouch. Di belakangnya terdapat keterangan Made in Malaysia dan expiration date.

Palet Muslimah Eyeshadow in Sapphire ini terdiri dari 4 warna; White, Light Blue, Dark Sapphire Blue & Marine Blue, dilengkapi dengan kaca dan aplikator spons di dalamnya. Bisa diliat di foto berikut, dengan & tanpa flash:
Surprisingly, warna produk ini cukup vibrant di kulit, meskipun tanpa eyeshadow base:

Berikut foto shades dari kiri ke kanan

Price: 
IDR 119,900

Klaimnya produk ini menggunakan bahan-bahan alami dan natural, salah satunya adalah Olea Europaea Fruit Oil. Namun namanya juga kosmetik, pasti dong menggunakan bahan-bahan kimia. Meskipun saya kurang tahu deatail fungsi dari bahan-bahannya, seharusnya tidak ada yang berbahaya, mengingat sudah ada label halal-nya. Produk ini juga tidak mengandung pengharum.

What I love
- Packagingnya compact dengan desain yang simple, travel friendly
- Warnanya sangat pigmented meskipun tanpa eyeshadow base
- Sudah ada kaca dan aplikator spons di dalamnya
- Staying power cukup lama, sekitar 6 jam. Kalau ingin lebih lama bisa menggunakan eyesahdow base
- Harganya cukup terjangkau
- Bisa dibeli secara online

Cons
- Eyeshadownya agak susah diblend, tidak cukup menggunakan aplikatornya, harus menggunakan blending blush yang oke.

Meskipun bernuansa biru, palet ini juga bisa loh dipakai sehari-hari. Siapa tau kamu ingin coba pake warna ini selain warna netral, nih saya kasih tutorialnya:
1. Aplikasikan eyeshadow base di kelopak mata
2. Aplikasikan Muslimah eyeshadow Light Blue di 3/4 kelopak mata dalam
3. Aplikasikan Muslimah eyeshadow Marine Blue di 1/2 kelopak mata luar, blend ke arah dalam
4. Aplikasikan Muslimah eyeshadow Dark Sapphire di daerah yang sudah ditandai seperti huruf V miring, blend sedikit
5. Aplikasikan Muslimah eyeshadow White di pangkal mata bagian dalam, 1/2 bagian dalam bawah mata dan tulang mata di bawah alis, blend
6. Aplikasikan Muslinah eyeshadow Dark Sapphire di 1/2 bagian luar bawah mata
7. Aplikasikan pencil liner hitam di atas bulu mata dan 1/2 bagian luar bawah mata
8. Gunakan eyelash curler pada bulu mata bagian atas, aplikasikan maskara hitam di bulu mata atas dan bawah, Done!
Yuk mari dicoba.. ^^

1. Muslimah Lip Care
Packagingnya berupa tube dari plastik berwarna coklat keemasan yang bisa memuat produk sebanyak 15 ml.
Di belakangnya terdapat keterangan Made in Malaysia, ingredients, logo halal dan juga expiration date.

Tekstur produknya agak kental seperti jelly berwarna transparant. Meskipun begitu, produk ini tidak lengket di bibir, malahan terasa terlalu ringan =D dibanding lip care lainnya.
Produk ini juga agak sedikit wangi buah Lychee. Jadi berasa kayak abis minum sirup Lychee setiap pake produk ini di bibir.

Produk ini mengandung Vitamin E, Castor Seed Oil dan Beeswax, sehingga bisa membuat bibir jadi lembab.

Price:
IDR 59,900

What I love
- Teksturnya ringan
- Wangi Lychee
- Warnannya bening, jadi gampang dipadukan dengan lip color lainnya
- Affordable
- Bisa dibeli secara online

Cons
- Untuk bibir yang super kering dan pecah-pecah (seperti bibir saya), harus sering re-apply. Karena produk ini teksturnya sangat ringan, jadi cepat "hilang" dari bibir, terutama kalau habis makan.
- Packagingnya berupa tube, mau ngga mau harus mengoleskannya pakai jari/langsung ke bibir. Jadi ngga terlalu steril.

Berikut saya beri sedikit tutorial untuk bibir sehari-hari:
1. Aplikasikan Muslimah Lip Care pada bibir
2. Aplikasikan Lip Pencil warna coral di outline bibir, baurkan ke dalam
3. Aplikasikan Lip Color warna nude
4. Tambahkan Muslimah Lip Care lagi di seluruh bibir, baurkan

Final look:

Oriflame Milk & Honey Gold Smoothing Sugar Scrub and Nourishing Hand & Body Cream

Hi all!!

Honestly I rarely do body treatment at Salon, Spa, etc.. because I don't have much time lah! =( That's why my skin is very dry and sometimes flaky in certain parts. I don't want this condition last forever. So I started to spare a little time to do my own body treatment at home. Thankfully, my friend sent these products that I can use for a simple self care for my body skin. Here they are..
Oriflame Milk & Honey Gold Nourishing Hand & Body Cream and Smoothing Sugar Scrub
Both of them come in elegant goldish packaging with honeycomb icon accents. It makes them look expensive though the material is plastic. These products were made in Poland.
1. Oriflame Milk & honey Gold Smoothing Sugar Scrub 200ml
This product contains organic milk, honey extracts and sugar crystals that supposedly can exfoliate and smoothen skin. 
I haven't try sugar scrub before. It has thick texture like honey with sugar granules in golden yellow color. It smells fresh and sweet!!
I read articles, some of them say that sugar scrub is good for sensitive skin (like mine!). It is also very easy to use. Simply apply this scrub on wet skin and rinse. There's no direction in the packaging about how many times we should use this product, so I use it every night when bathing! Yes, my skin needs help so bad! After rinsing, the skin still feels slippery, not rough. I feel a significant change in my skin, although not extreme. It looks cleaner and softer. I still use this product everyday, until it's empty later, maybe I will restock for the sake of beautiful skin =D

2. Oriflame Milk & Honey Gold Nourishing Hand & Body Cream 250ml
The jar reminds me of Winnie The Pooh's honey container. Transparent jar makes us easier to see how much cream is left inside.
It is sealed by aluminum foil when the lid is opened.
It has a light creamy texture in ivory color. It doesn't fall at all when I put on the finger facing down.
The fragrance is almost similar to the scrub's, but milder. It feels soft and smooth when applied on skin.
Here is the before after picture:
Can you see my skin becomes more lustrous?

I usually use it after bathing with the sugar scrub at night, before sleeping. I really love the feel on my skin when I wake up in the morning. My skin is very moist and chewy. It absorbs into my skin perfectly. =D

Overall, I really love these products!!! I can feel an improvement in my skin. I will probably buy it again when it runs out. I wish there is a larger size, so it can be used much longer. 
One of my concern, this product isn't sold widely in stores. We should contact Oriflame agent that we know. Or if you want to give it a try too, just contact my friend, Helga Swadharma, through her email: ultragakun@gmail.com. You can also order the other Oriflame products from her.

Yeah! That's all my review today. I hope it's useful to you.

See ya!! =D

3 Armando Caruso Essential Makeup Brushes

Hi all!! 

Today I'm going to share my review of 3 Armando Caruso makeup brushes from AYOU Beauty. I ever bought a set of Armanda Caruso travel size makeup brush with case before. I like it because the quality is good and affordable. So I'm very excited to try their regular brushes, here they are..
Each brush comes in a plastic packaging.

1. Armando Caruso Kabuki Brush for Powder/Foundation (AC102K)
Kabuki brush is one of makeup tools that should exist in every makeup case. This product is made of green shiny plastic material with gold accent in the middle. This brush is a handy size to carry in a purse or travel bag.
When opened, there is a gold section that can be adjusted up and down to set the width of the brush. 
The brush hair is made of white synthetic hair with a black tip, quite thick and very smooth. It looks strong and not easily fall.
This is what I mean that you can adjust the width of the brush. I usually use it both of these ways:
1. Use the first position (the black tip only) to apply liquid foundation or blusher
2. Use the second position (full brush) to apply powder
Price: IDR 155,000

Based on my experience, this brush is very useful and very convenient to use. With the right moves, it can spread liquid foundation, blusher and powder perfectly.

2. Armando Caruso Blending Brush (AC102K)
This brush is not too long, quite fit in our hand. The wand is made ​​of wood with a black matte finish plus glossy black plastic for clamping the brush hair. There's Armando Caruso logo in the middle of the wand.
Matte finish wand makes it less slippery when used.
The hair brush is so soft and short. I can't even tell if it is synthetic or real hair.

Although this is a blending brush, we still can use it for other purposes. I usually use it these ways:
1. Use the first position (the front) to dab powder eyeshadow on the lids, then blend it.
2. Use the second position (the side) to apply eyeshadow on the creases, then blend it.
Price: IDR 32,500

Based on my experience, this brush is very useful and multifunction. If you are too lazy to use many brushes for an eye makeup likes simplicity, this brush is enough for creating a simple beautiful eye makeup. The price is so affordable for a good quality brush!

3. Armando Caruso Slanted Liner Brush (AC707)
This brush is slightly longer than the blending brush above, with the same wand materials.
The brush hair is lighter than the blending brush. It is so thin and soft, perfect to create a precision line.
As an eyeliner junkie, angled brush is a must have makeup tool to apply gel liner!! But it can be used for other purposes too. ^^ 
It can be used to apply eyebrow powder or blend the eyebrow pencil, to apply eyeshadow under the waterlines and of course to apply the gel eyeliner.
Price: IDR 32,500

Based on my experience, this is also a multifunction brush. It can create precision line and blend the color smoothly. The price is also affordable!! 

Conclusion
Overall, I think the quality of Armando Caruso brushes are good with reasonable prices. It can be used for daily makeup. These 3 brushes are enough, especially for beginner who still confuse what kind of brush you should have first. So, I highly recommend these brushes to you!! =D

Hair Cut, Coloring & Digital Perm at D'Height

Hi all..!

Today I'm going to share my hair make over experience at D'Height Salon. Yup, if you follow my instagram, you must already know that my hair is change to be like this:
If it's neat.. =D

Okay let's get started!

First, as usual, my hair was washed by capster.
Then Koko Jimmy came, he's the hair stylist who would handle my hair. I got a medium layered haircut =) My hair is very thick, it should be thinned before permed so it won't be too fluffy.
Next.. Digital Perm process. I was handled by Novi & Toy. It was the first time my hair got a digital perm. I only ever tried regular perms when I was a college student. What are the differences? The rollers that is used on Digital Perm is slightly larger than regular perm rollers. It is connected to a hose, which will transfer the heat from the hairdryer. The cream is also thicker than the one that is used on regular perm. Time required for digital perm is shorter than regular perm, but it depends on the hair.
 Here are the rollers that I mentioned before:
And here is after they connected the hoses into it.
They also put pads and tissues between rollers and our hairs/skins to prevent burning. Then Novi turned on the hairdryer and transfered the heat through the hoses.

After a few minutes, the hair was given a neutralizing fluid. Once the liquid was spread evenly, they opened the rollers one by one. Tada .. My hair has turned into curly, Yaay !!
Once rinsed, they blow-dried my hair as the preparation to the next process.
The last process was coloring! Actually I still liked my previous hair color. But my hair needed to be repainted because the color has faded. So, Toy gave me a mixture of brown + red colors.. I prefer the light hair color because it makes me look younger lah! Haha..
 Last.. they blow-dried my hair again and then styled it.
 Tadaaa!!!
 Koko Jimmy and Novi styled my hair only with water, hair mousse and finger.
But the result was.. cool!
Novi said, Digital Perm leaves hair so easy to style at home, and it looks natural ^^ but we have to do hair-spa and vitamins routinely to prevent hair dryness and damage.

Voila!! Before-after pictures with & without flash:
What do you think? ^^

D'Height team and happy me =D
All of the process above only took 3 hours!!! Wow!! Fast isn't it? =D

D'Height salon interior is designed with modern-minimalist and elegant style.
This picture shows my hair from front, side and back view.
Novi told me that this curls will only last for approximately 2-3 months. After that I need to redo the digital perm again or change it into another style. 

It also looks nice when I style it like this, more retro, more vintage, very me.. =D
And here is how it looks if I only comb it with fingers and leave it dry naturally after shampooing.
Overall, I really love the result! So fast and effective! D'Height salon gave me a very good service and the more important thing is.. friendly team =) They made me comfortable during the hair make over process. The location is also reachable.

So, do you want to try digital perming too? Or just need to get a new haircut? New color? I recommend you to visit this place!
