Simple & Quick Hairdo Tutorial

Maybe you still remember my 'Complete Look' post a month ago, where I posted about my look and hair. I'm so glad that you guys interested about the hairdo (:

I also love this hairdo from the first time I knew it from my cousin. I never thought that it was so easy, because the hairdo looks very beautiful and neat and elegant (please please mind my messy hair here!)
You also can do this anytime and anywhere because the application is so quick and all you need is an elastic hair band.

If you noticed, o yeah, I wore Pj's xpp

1. Pony tail your hair

2. Gyre hair upward

3. Dig a hole on top

4. Put the gyred hair inside the hole

5. Put it inside until the gyred hair disappear and tidy up

6. Voila!

7. Final look

See..?? how simple and quick hairdo!

What do you think of the hairdo? Will you try this for celebrating the New Year?;)

Etude House Blackhead Gommage Review

This is probably the post that some of you have been waiting for. I'm sorry to have kept you waiting, fellas.. I bought this blackhead gommage because I got annoyed by my nose that keeps lots of black and whiteheads. I want to get rid all of them!

I had been keeping my curiosity about this EH product and one day I decided that I should get one(: (This was also because I wanted to fulfill the minimum payment to become EH member xp)

*Note: I warn you, this post contains lots of nosy pics, I mean... nose.

I can't read this. Anyone?

The directions

It looks like mud. It's not too thick and not too watery. I also feel that the scrub beads are not too grainy.

Usually after I clean my face with facial foam, I'll dry my nose and the area around it then start using the gommage. 
Rub and massage it gently and the 'mud like' will transform like the pic above. After few seconds or a minute, I wash it off with warm water.

Before using


My Opinion:

I like how it feels to my skin after wash off the residue. My nose feels so smooth and slippery. hoho..
I think the more you use it regularly, the more you could see the difference before and after. That's all our skin care do, right? the results only happen for real if we continue to use the products xp

I can't really say that I'm into this product because I used to have scrub soap that much much cheaper and has greater performance than this gommage. The bad thing is, the scrub soap was easily shrink and I could only get it from hair salon.

So, what do you think about this product and the result? tell me!(:

My Beauty Diary Mask Review

I finally have a chance to try My Beauty Diary Mask. I have wanted to try this mask brand since the first time I saw it at Eki's blog post. Then I noticed that many beauty bloggers have tried also and they made such great reviews.

The bad news is, MBD is so hard to get in Indo and I don't have credit card, so I can't buy it from overseas online shop like sasa or amazon etc. 

After tried to find local importer and I got it from facebook. For Indonesian who wants to try MBD. I recommend you to go here. The range selections are not to many, but it's a good start for beginner like me. 

How To Use My Beauty Diary Mask:

1. Cleanse face thoroughly before applying mask 
2. Excess essence from the packaging may be applied on the neck by massage 
3. After 20 minutes, remove mask and gently massage face to assist absorption 
4. Rinsing is not required 
5. You may apply toner, moisturizer etc. after application
6. Use daily for maximum effect

First try: 
MBD Apple Polyphenol

Skin type: 
All skin types especially skin with enlarged pores 

The natural acid present in the Hibiscus Sabdariffa Extract has the same effect as AHAs helping to remove surface dead skin but does not stimulate the skin. It also improves and prevents pores enlarging, regulating sebum secretion. This helps to tightens pores, and improves the skin texture.

First time tear the packaging and pulled out the sheet,  I had an awkward moment. I didn't know how to use it because the sheet was folded in a strange way (in my head). I've never used sheet mask before, so that was my first experience xp.
I like the scent and how the sheet felt so cold and fresh on my skin. It was really really good! really!

I don't like the scent! It smells weird. 
I didn't know if the sheet has already almost expired or what, but I felt that the sheet didn't has lots essence like the others.

It does smell like wine and alcohol, however the scent reminds me of cough syrup I used to consume when I was a kid.

  • Vaccinium Angustifolium (Blueberry) Fruit Extract, Rubus Idaeus (Raspberry) Fruit Extract -> give anti-oxidizing effect
  • Prunus Persica Extract -> hydrates

(source: here)
I love the mask. Very unique scent combination. But it was a little disappointing. I expected to smell more ice cream scent..

Here few pics of me wearing the masks. Please ignore my 'Texas Chainsaw Massacre' faces.

Happy, healthy and refresh face after used the mask. 

The conclusion is:
The masks are moisturizing, RICH of essence, refresh and soothes the exhausted skin, nice scents and also affordable. 

I can't pick my favorite because actually, I couldn't distinguish the difference between each mask because I only used them once. But I will repurchase few of them (because I don't really love black cherry choco and red wine) and the other types to see more improvement to skin.

I highly recommend this brand! (just like everyone who has tried it)

Experience yourself guys! You won't regret it! ^^

Blue, Green and Yellow Domination

It's been a LONG time since the last time I posted my photography thing. I just now get a chance to post some. Lately I posted more about beauty review, but I promise that I'll never forget to post some photographs, coz this is my pride xp
 Well, actually I took the pics long about 2 months ago at a hotel in Yogyakarta while I had a business trip with office. I really love the colors on them, so I think I have to share these to you and hope you like....^^

Quite refresh your eyes a bit, right? Or not? Umm..well, just wait for my next photographs then.. (which I don't know when and what to shoot xpp) 

*unrelated post* 

Guys, just want to share with you.. I feel that my English skill is getting worse.
I think it's because I don't blog much for the past 3 months? T^T or because I no longer frequently watch American movies as much as before? Whatever the problem is, I have to catch up and brush up my skill again. I'm sorry if I write you in bad bad grammar. I hope I can write better(:

I Won O.P.I and Here Are The Swatches

As I promised, now I'm sharing you the prize from Stella Lee and Dunia Kutek because I won their 2nd prize of O.P.I. Hurraahh! Thank you so much guys!! I was so excited about what colors I would get (Who doesn't love surprise?? -Well, except Oprah. I still don't know the reason she always avoids surprise. Anyone?). Back to the O.P.I, my excitement became a joy when the package finally popped out in my study desk. So, I got 5 nail polishes with beautiful colors. Silver Shatter, Zom-Body To Love, Nail Envy, and 2 minis which I don't know the name, so let's just name them Mini Black and Mini Glittery Pink. I love love love what I received ;DD

At first I tried the silver shatter mixed with Zom-Body To Love. They didn't match at all. I didn't know what Zom-Body To Love was. I just thought that it must be because of the color-looks like monster's hand or frankenstein or troll's snot- and because of the name. Then I googled it, and voila! I knew that it's a glow in the dark nail polish. Awesome!  
Then I mixed the shatter with the mini black and they were a perfect match. The shatter polish easily get dry and shattered quickly. It's very very cute! For the glittery pink one, the color is so soft so I try to mix it with my other pinky nail polishes (Will show you sometime). 

Here are the Swatches.
In that pic I only use a coat of Zom-Body To Love. But if you want to get the glow in the dark effect, put some more coats. In other words, let me make some conclusions: 
1. Silver Shatter: Quickly shattered and dry. Will be a perfect match with dark colors. 
2. Zom-Body To Love: Glow in the dark. Try to put some coats, so in the day light you can see it green. 
3. Mini Black: Put 2 or more coats to achieve dark solid black. 
4. Mini Glittery Pink: Soft color, solid glitter. 
5. Nail Envy: Claims to be a nail straightener, good for top coat. 

I'm absolutely love this giveaway. So, don't forget to visit both Stella's blog and Dunia Kutek's website and blog. Gotta love their beauty thingy (: 

Till next time, nail lovers!}
