Hello again belles!
Just a quick post about my recent mini haul of Make Over. Do you know about Make Over? They're a relatively new makeup brand from Indonesia. I'm still new to this brand so I want to try their products! 
sorry for the blur pic >,<
Fortunately, they had Special Weekend Promo valid until yesterday at selected Matahari Dept Store. All products were on 20% discount so I decided to buy some of their products.

I fell in love instantly with the blush, it has a very nice coral shade. For the lip balms, they do have very nice smell (yellow has a sweet vanilla scent and the green one has fresh melon scent), so I took it without any further thoughts. And then the little voice on my head keep mumbling about the eye liner (I found it's kinda hard to avoid buying new eye liners).... so yeah, I ended up buying the black one. The very kind BA gives me a bonus: a lip color pencil. I'm very happy I got this because I've been looking for a brown lip pencil.

This is actually my first haul post, so... I hope this good enough for the first try^^ 
Okay, until the next post then!
See you ~

REVIEW: Beauty Treats Indonesia July Box (Gold Edition)

Hello belles!
Today I'm gonna share my Beauty Treats Indonesia July Box, Gold Edition.
Actually I'm kinda disappointed with their last month box, but I already subscribed them until next month (sigh) And now I just heard that they'll take a break next month, what??? Then how the hell is my August box that I already subscribed? If you read my post about their June box, you probably know that my email to them wasn't replied yet (and I of course wrote the email as nice as possible, used polite words etc etc), so it's kinda traumatic for me to send them emails again, asking about my August box.

Hari ini aku akan coba sharing my newest box from Beauty Treats Indonesia. 
Sebenernya sih sempet kecewa sama isi box bulan lalu, tapi karena udah terlanjur subscribe sampe bulan depan yah...apa boleh buat. Tapi yang bikin aku kaget, tiba-tiba si BTI bilang kalo bulan depan mereka bakal off sebulan buat nyiapin September box, yang katanya bakal punya konsep baru. Lah terus nasib August box yang udah terlanjur saya bayar gimana dong? Mau ngirim email nanyain tentang hal itu tapi kok semacem trauma gitu ya, karena seperti yang udah aku sebutin di post about my BTI June, aku pernah ngirim email ke mereka tapi belum dibales sampe sekarang :(

Okay, lets moving on to the box.

REVIEW: Skinfood Buckwheat Loose Powder in Transparent

Good afternoon belles!
Today the sun above my city shines so brightly. When in a day like this, I always sweating and thus I suddenly become very addicted to touch up my makeup. Because my daily makeup only consist of eyeliner, brow, tinted lip balm and powder, I need a good powder that could help me reducing the needs of blotting my face. I am a fan of loose powders, and my current holy grail is the one from Skinfood, Buckwheat Loose Powder, that I am going to review now. This loose powder have four variant of shades: Transparent, Skin Beige, Natural Beige and Lavender. I own the transparent one.

Hari ini matahari di atas Surabaya kayaknya lagi happy, terik banget sinarnya, hehe.. Di hari-hari seperti ini, karena aku orang yang lumayan gampang keringetan, aku juga mendadak jadi suka touch up, padahal sehari-hari cuma pakai bedak, eyeliner sama brow liner kalo lagi nggak males, dan lipbalm, hehehe... Buat bedak aku lebih suka pakai yang bentuknya tabur, dan favoritku saat ini adalah Skinfood Buckwheat Loose Powder, yang akan aku review kali ini. Bedak ini sendiri punya 4 macam warna, Skin Beige, Natural Beige, Lavender dan Transparent. Aku beli bedak ini lewat online shop dan karena itu nggak bisa lihat langsung dan takut kalau warnanya nggak cocok di aku, jadi pilih yang Transparent deh.

Skinfood Buckwheat Loose Powder in Transparent : Taken from Skinfood site
Infused with soft, fine pearl particles, this multi-function powder achieves a subtle, luminous finish. Rice extract creates a clearer, incredibly radiant skin tone.

After foundation, dap gently in following order: forehead→eyelids→cheeks→lips. Press remaining residue gently under eyes.

REVIEW: PAC Make Up Pencil in Brown

Hello again, belles!
Today I am going to review one of Indonesian local products from Martha Tilaar, PAC Make Up Pencil in Brown. As a beginner, for daily use I prefer pencil liners to liquid or gel one. This is my first brown liner ever. I recently got it from my auntie.

Hari ini aku akan me-review salah satu produk lokal Indonesia, PAC Make Up Pencil in Brown. Aku lebih suka pakai eyeliner pensil, karena aku masih belum bisa pakai yang bentuknya cair atau gel, hehe.. Ini eyeliner warna coklat pertamaku, dan ini pun dikasih sama tante aku (sering dijadiin bahan percobaan tante...soalnya beliau nggak punya anak perempuan...haha).
PAC Make Up Pencil in Brown : Taken from PAC site
Three functioned pencil: to draw eye line, lip line and also can be used to form a thin line on body painting.
Pensil tiga fungsi: membentuk garis mata, garis bibir dan juga dapat digunakan untuk membentuk garis tipis pada body painting.

Mid-Year Thoughts

Suddenly realize that 2013 is already half passed. A lot of things and memories filled those 6 months. Laughs echoed, cries murmured, lessons learned. 

Sometimes, it's not necessary to please people. If you always trying to please everyone, it'd be tiresome. Your own life is more important, so enjoy every moment you have, do everything you want. Spent your precious time with people you love, people who make your day a little brighter simply by being in it. Because life is too short to be spent with people who suck the happiness out of you, and it means, free yourself from negative people. Remember, relationships should help you, not hurt you. When you free yourself from negative people, you free yourself to be you --- and being you is the only way to truly live.

Have a blessed half-year ahead. :)

REVIEW: The Body Shop Peach Lip Gloss

This time I am going to review The Body Shop Lip Gloss that I recently got. There's a BOGO promo for this lip gloss, and I decided to buy it together with my cousin so we could save money ^^ She got the Watermelon and I chose the Peach one.
The Body Shop Peach Lip Gloss : Taken from TBS site

High-impact, glossy color with a sweet peach flavor. This luscious lip gloss delivers super-shiny, sheer color.

Polybutene (Binder), Ricinus Communis Seed Oil/Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil (Emollient), Dextrin Palmitate (Emulsifying Agent), Diisopropyl Dimer Dilinoleate (Skin Conditioning Agent), Cocos Nucifera Oil/Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil (Emollient), Passiflora Edulis Seed Oil (Emollient/Skin Conditioner), Passiflora Incarnata Seed Oil (Emollient/Skin Conditioning Agent), Sclerocarya Birrea Seed Oil (Skin Conditioning Agent), Hydrogenated Polyisobutene (Emollient), Aroma/Flavor (Flavour), Cera Alba/Beeswax (Emulsifier/Emollient), Tocopheryl Acetate (Antioxidant), Calcium Aluminum Borosilicate (Bulking Agent), Panthenol (Skin Conditioning Agent), Linalool (Fragrance Ingredient), Benzyl Salicylate (Fragrance Ingredient), Silica (Absorbent), Mica (Opacifier), Tocopherol (Antioxidant), Tin Oxide (Opacifying Agent), Talc (Absorbent/Bulking Agent), Barium Sulfate (Opacifier), CI 77891/Titanium Dioxide (Colorant), CI 15850/Red 6 (Color), CI 77492/Iron Oxides (Color).

First Impression...

The Body Shop Peach Lip Gloss : The tube
The Body Shop Peach Lip Gloss : The applicator
This lip gloss comes in a simple packaging like other TBS products. It has tube type applicator, hygienic enough to applied straight to the lips. Contains 12 ml (0.4 fl oz) and you can get it at IDR 79.000 or about USD 8. This lip gloss has a slightly artificial peach scent, but I love it.

Swatch swatch...!

The Body Shop Peach Lip Gloss : Swatches on hand
The Body Shop Peach Lip Gloss : Swatches on lips
This lip gloss is rather sticky and therefore I found it difficult to be applied evenly. But thank God it gives me a sheer glossy finish, because I just do not like my lips looking so glossy. About the staying power, this lip gloss stays about 3 hours on my lips without eating or drinking.

My overall opinion...

I do not like the texture and I think the price tag is a bit over the top, but it smells nice (I love peach) and gives me natural glossy finish (also don't forget that TBS products are animal cruelty free) so... I think it worth enough to try if you're a peach lover and looking for environmental-friendly products.

has a nice peach scent
nice design, hygienic
sheer, natural glossy finish

average quality
little bit pricey


No. I think I wanna try another lip products from TBS..  Born Lippie line maybe?

How about you? Have you tried this product? 
Tell me about your opinions :)

Have a nice day!

REVIEW: Beauty Treats Indonesia June Box (Gold Edition)

Hello hello!
Today I wanna share about Beauty Treats Indonesia June Box (Gold Edition) that I recently got. 
First thing first, this month box comes really late! I even emailed them about the late shipment, I was afraid whether I received my box or not, but unfortunately they did not reply my email, at all. Sigh, poor customer service is such a turn off for me...
Now lets take a look to this beauty box.

First Impression...

Well, it's a little bit.....boring. Sorry to say, but the white cardboard box looked cheap. But the idea of gold ribbon is sure a nice touch.
Beauty Treats Indonesia June Box (Gold Edition) : Front

When I opened the box...

Beauty Treats Indonesia June Box (Gold Edition) : Insides
Beauty Treats Indonesia June Box (Gold Edition) : Products I got

There are the products I got:
5. WARDAH Eyeshadow N (real size)

5 products, 4 real size and 1 sample. Speechless...........................

So... is this beauty box really worth the price?

I made some counting whether this box is worth IDR 95.000 price or not, just for fun ^^
Beauty Treats Indonesia June Box (Gold Edition) : Price Counting
As you can see from table above, this beauty box is (still) worth the price. With only IDR 95.000 you'd get products worth more than IDR 120.000.

My overall opinion...

Well, it consists of 4 full size products and 1 sample size, but how could it be so empty...? Compared to  their previous boxes, it's really really disappointing. And thanks to the late shipping, to me this box become a July, not June box.
Full size makeup tools sure are nice for a beginner like me. How about the mask? I've tried Lioele Red Ginseng mask before. And the eye shadow... oh well, I'm not a fan of Wardah' products. I know from the catalog, there are two options from Wardah : eye shadow or blush. Again, if I could choose, I prefer blush than eye shadow, but with this eye shadow I think I'll give a chance to this brand.
I've been subscribed to BTI since the first box and I am a quite loyal customer, so I hope they can be better than this, or at least get back to their old self... ^^

4 full size products
worth the price

late shipping! please work on this BTI
poor customer service, boo!
not-so-nice products' selection

2/5 POOR
