Guerlain L'Or Radiance Concentrate with Pure Gold



Hello lovelies,

Oohh, who doesn't know Guerlain and their irresistible bases?! From Meteorites Perles, Base and for sure, L'Or. One of the most interesting product in the makeup base world as it contain real gold.

-*-


Before the world start taking gold in their skincare or mask, L'Or has already existed, they may revamped in 2015 but the history of L'Or goes way back.

From the container, packaging and design is very well made. They look exclusively beautiful.

-*-



The box packaging is sealed, so when it is opened you'll see that the seal has been breach.

Inside there's a pamphlet where you could read more. Nevertheless, on the outer side, there's sufficient details regarding ingredients too.

-*-




Guerlain l'Or is an embellishing make-up base sprinkled with pure 24-carat gold flakes. Like the most luxurious jewellery pieces, the precious flakes were crafted into ultra-sparkling and ultra-reflective particles, then dispersed in a hydrating smoothing gel. The complexion is beautified. It glows with divine and unfailing radiance. Skin is smooth, supple and satiny, ready for perfect, enhanced and long-lasting make-up.

-*-




L'Or has a distinctive and delicate floral scent. The first peach note blended with an accord of vegetal notes is fresh and sparkling. The rose, raspberry and jasmine heart is enriched with a powdery base of balsamic, benzoin and white musk.

-*-



Take a small amount of gel on the back of your hand and gently apply to your face, working outwards to even out creases and smooth lines. Wait a few seconds before applying foundation.
The secret of absolute radiance: mix a few drops of fluid foundation and l'Or in the palm of your hand for an incredibly light texture.

-*-



Look at that pure gold gliding on the skin on the light gel base. They are so satisfying in terms of texture. It was cool, pleasing and easily loved. I like how it made the skin feels bouncily moist and like it was contented.

The gel melts on the skin and become more watery, easier to be blend and absorbed. The skin instantly appear more lively. I wont say that it's like a 'glue', but the makeup does stick better whenever I'm using the base. On skin that suffer from dryness products wont really set flawlessly, but when it is prep correctly like using a proper skincare and makeup base like this, the skin will behave far better with much better finish and staying power.

-*-




Many combine the liquid gel with their own foundation and loving the results, reviews on how beauty gurus raving about this product is endless. From helping the skin by satisfying it need to making them looks better and enhancing the skin condition.

The skin needs nutrition and gold was famous for it's properties too, that's why understanding this and adding more valuable ingredients, Guerlain L'Or provide.

Gold was known to be anti-inflammatory and antioxidant for the skin, calm acne, reduce skin redness, lighten skin complexion, and the skin will appear luminous.

-*-




I think I look pretty good thanks to L'Or Radiance Concentrate with Pure Gold. The one I want to highlight about the product is not just about the finish, but the experience in using it too. Many products might appear like a good product, giving the skin a 'flawless' look, but in the reality the chemicals and everything inside it made out of unsafe ingredients that does more damage than helping.

With L'Or, I feel safe as the feeling and whole experience when using it pure comfort.

-*-




The texture and formula that enhancing the skin condition made them so precious. It's hydrating and prepping the skin in the best way possible. Most problems consist due to inflammatory, like there's so many redness too we want to hide like under the nose. Using a gold infused base, the problem could be reduced. Hence, we wont need using too many makeup to cover the area.

-*-



And the scent, ooh, it's so good. Fresh, light and definitely far from overwhelming. I find it to be uplifting and made me happy. The non sticky and non greasy texture, addictive!

Above all, the effects on my skin, irresistible.

-*-




Thank you so much Guerlain Indonesia, it's indeed a happy holiday with you.

Make Up For Ever Artist Acrylip Lip Paint


Hello lovelies,

a fresh and uplifting shade like orange become a hype thanks to the Korean trend. Not because western cosmetic doesn't carry an orange shade but somehow, it is the Korean than brings in the flavor as 'new'.

Perhaps since the tone suits Asian skin, the trend made it possible. Still, as one of the most complete makeup brand worldwide, Make Up For Ever, for sure, have orange tone from slightly orange, like reddish orange, pinkish orange to fully orange like this one.

-*-



The product is in a tube container which reminds me of acrylic paints, it has a similar name as in Acrylip since the finishing appears to be like acrylic. Glossy, shiny and leathery.

-*-


ARTIST ACRYLIP covers lips with intense color and a thin, non-sticky texture for a soft shine finish.

Inspired by the bold, high-pigment acrylic paints used by artists, ARTIST ACRYLIP covers lips with intense color and a thin, non-sticky texture for a soft shine finish.
The slanted cushion applicator hugs lips with comfort, and provides uniform color in just one stroke. This versatile lip color offers multiple possibilities from lipstain effect to full coverage.


-*-

When it was first opened, the cushion applicator is white and clean. Simply squeeze the tube gently until the cushion started to 'bleed' the product inside. It looks so gorgeous when the liquid start pouring out and made the white cushion turns orange.

-*-


It is ready to be used. The cushion is soft and very easy to be used, dispensing the color on the lips. The product is like a creamy gel that does appear similar like an acrylic paint. Glossy, leathery and silky smooth.

-*-


The product is like said on the details, it can provide a thin and stained look or a full colored lips. Gradation, ombre lips, it is all possible since the product is blendable and provide several finish. If you prefer something like demi matte, just dab with tissue after applying.

Or, like it was meant to be, made them bold like acrylic paints do.

-*-




Above is my before look upon using the lip paint and below is after.

It changed my appearance to be fresher and hey, orange is not such a 'weird' color after all and we can look good in it. Somehow I always imagine orange as a very striking color that brought too much attention, now it seems pretty and interesting.

-*-





Thank you so much Make Up For Ever Indonesia for the lovely gift. It's definitely a turn on. The vivid pigmented color that glide on smoothly on the lips without any sticky nor greasy unwelcome feelings.

Pears Pure & Gentle Shower Gel


Hello lovelies,

heehee, I can't resist my laugh there, as seen, the product is almost run out :D This is Pears Pure & Gentle Shower Gel.

I know the brand Pears from perhaps 20 years ago. I really like using their foaming face cleansing gel and the shower gel too. The cleansing gel is unlike any other foaming facial I've tried, it is the best thing that ever happen to me since it is so gentle and fragrant.

Around a year later, I could not find any of their product ever again in Indonesia, so when I finally reunited during this year visit to Singapore (where it usually not available too) I'm so happy. I couldn't find the foaming facial wash, so I'm still happy to get the shower gel and the bar soap (it's finished). Apparently the brand is from 1807, so it's a rich history there and only recently become one of Unilever's where now begin spreading again, hopefully to Indonesia as well.

Find this details on a site

And on another site with reviews how families with skin sensitivity could use this and love the product so much.


Pears 100% soap free shower gel. It is especially made to take care of your skin, cleansing thoroughly yet softly and rinsing clean. It contains mild cleansers.
Pears shower gel is a gentle way you attain clean, healthy looking skin. It is skin pH balanced and contains skin-conditioning agents and mild cleansers. It does not have any synthetic thickeners.

-*-


The product may look simple and just like any other body cleanser in the world, but read again in the details on how it is pH balanced, mild and soap free. And the feeling of using it is just wonderful. It's light yet bubbles up abundantly, cleans without causing any dryness on the delicate skin, and smells super duper good. It made me feel like I'm back in the good ol' English days where they made soap in a traditional way and filled with goodness and aroma that reminds me of spring flowers. Ohh how I love English garden, the flowers smells really good and fresh at the same time. Each country have a different type of garden, Japanese is more to the zen, so the aroma is clean, fresh, and like greens.

In Europe, the florals are fragrant and kinda strong yet romantic, like rose and lavender. British flowers are fresh, fragrant and elegant. Somehow it is more sophisticated, I love a lot of their flowers like daisy, lily of the valley, peonies, aster and so on, so the scent is very much an English Garden.

So if you happen to meet Pears products, do try, you'll love it as much as I do, it's like the perfect product for everyone. A sensitive skin with fragrant lover like me, will adore it.

BYS Cosmetic Indonesia


Hello lovelies,

thanks to Clozette Indonesia I was invited to BYS Cosmetic event at their store in Central Park Mall. You may see the fun we had at @ClozetteID (instagram).

BYS Cosmetic came from Australia and famous for their Eye Palette Festive that can make so many different look. On the event, I can clearly see why :)

-*-


The are a lot of interesting products that catches my eyes, and I'm so intrigue to try them. The thing about cosmetic is that how the color could stay true and 'stick' on our skin. You must rememvber how frustrating it is to use a makeup, like perhaps blush on or eyeshadow and when you apply it on your face, the color like doesn't want to come out no matter how many layers you've put.

So doesn't matter about the price tag or how other raves about it, you want that convenience for yourselves and prove it. 


-*-


After a short introduction from BYS Cosmetic Indonesia brand manager and a quick makeup demo.

-*-


Where the artist share a very easy yet festive look focusing on the eyes and lips.

-*-


Below is the result.

All the bloggers are going here and there trying the products, we do swatches, and some even apply the lippies directly on their lips to see the finishing and experience the setting time.

-*-

We are given plenty of opportunity to try and I've managed to ask the prices, they are starting below 100k and the palette itself cost around 300k.

The products that interest me the most is their Palette Festive, the one with the Eye-doring Christmas.

-*-


You might realize it have a similar name to that brand :)

During this occasion, BYS Cosmetic Indonesia also share package deals where you can check them out at Central Park Mall. There's package 1,2 and 3. The discount is up to 100k. BYS Studio also available at Pakuwon Mall Surabaya.

-*-


BYS Cosmetic is a cruelty free cosmetic that get Internationally accredited by PETA.

Soon after, the event is finished and all the bloggers received the following goodies.

-*-



Nude Eyeshadow Palette, Banana Powder, and Auto Brow Pencil (mine happen to be in brown).

-*-


The first thing we'll see is their Banana Powder.


Highlight, set and colour correct with this three-in-one wonder powder! BYS Loose Banana Powders yellow toned, mattifying pigment helps to brighten under eye circles and set areas of the face where you would use to conceal.

The powder is like a loose powder but a bit thicker in terms of ability to cover. And I'm using it for baking where then after blending it helps 'to clean' everything so my skin receive that fresh, flawless look.

-*-

Banana Powder is famous nowadays, it acts like a finishing powder too but have better setting power than the 'normal' loose powder we know. The particle is still considerately fine yet dense.

-*-


This is their eyebrow pencil crayon aka Auto Brow Pencil. Their name could be pencil but as said, it have the texture of crayon, it's rich and thick, do apply by pressing very gently to avoid brows that was too thick.

Brows are the hottest trend right now and yours will look fabulous with these easy to use tools from BYS Cosmetics. Here at BYS we believe beautiful arches accentuate the eyes and frame the face and our BYS Brow range will help you create the perfect brow look. Having the right brow shape and adding fullness can seriously change your entire look.

-*-

The brush is also unique since it was made for the wax-crayon like formula. It's like a rubbery thingy that helps blending the product so the brows looks like bushy stripy hairs and not powdery. So if you are looking for an eyebrow pencil that coated the hair and made your eyebrow appear fuller, thicker and like it was hairs, this is the thing for you. I actually like the finish as it appear like they are my brow not a drawn object.

-*-



This brows also become water resistant too, I have to use an oil-based makeup remover to easily cleans it over. So when I was sweating or drenched in rain, I'll still have brow thanks to Auto Brow Pencil.

If you prefer something darker or lighter, no worries, they come in several different shades.

-*-


Next, it's their Nude Eyeshadow Palette, hooray!!!

BYS NUDE eyeshadow palettes feature an array of 12 expertly chosen matte and metallic eyeshadows. The 12 piece palette comes housed in a modern, embossed tin featuring a mirror and 2 dual end applicators.

In the picture above, I'm using it as a soft and natural as daily makeup, but as seen on their container, they are definitely not made for the nude only, bright and deep colours are available.
-*-


I was surprised on how well they stick on my eyelids without any eye primer. I know most eyeshadow works like a charm after eye primer is applied, but this one doesn't need any. You may apply your eye base but I assure you, the look below, doesn't use any base on the lids.

-*-


The colors are gorgeous and true. Adding a primer would made them even pop or perhaps some soft colors but hey, it was there for a reason.

The mirror is huge like shown in the image above, and there's some basic applicators too.

The container might be a bit tacky but the product works like a charm.

-*-




Thank you so much BYS Cosmetic and Clozette Indonesia, see you again soon!!
