Nivea Pinkish Boost 3in1

Euhh.. I don't like the color of my lips. Dark at the edges. Once I get tired or don't have enough drink, my lips turn absolutely pale! I've try the routine to make my lips healthier like rubbing my lips with soft tooth brush, use vaseline petroleum and massage it before I go to bed at night. But that is no-use-at-all!
So, when I saw this NIVEA Pinkish Boost at the supermarket. I decided to give it a try.

Here's the packaging. Most of girls will love it cause it's pink!

The product claims to:
1. Restores natural lip colour
2. Reduces lip dullness
3. Protects lips with SPF 15

Here's the tip and a little peek from the balm.

Here's my before after 

Overall rating: ☆ Color: ☆ Moist:   Smell: ☆ Packaging:  

My final thought:
As lip balm, NIVEA pinkish boost moisturizes my lips. It feels a bit oily after applied, it also has strong taste and smell which I don't like it. Still, it does moisturize. 
I don't think this lip balm works to reduce lips darkness like mine. I've been using it for few times, but it still doesn't give me any significant result.  I will keep try until the lip balm is empty though. 

So, what lip balm do you use to boost your natural pink lips?

TONYMOLY Tony Tint#1 Cherry Pink

K-Pop and K-Drama do shake our world, agree? Well, at least for me. hehe.. Yeah, I say it because I really feel that I've been seduced by Korean celebrities makeup. How their skin look glowing, smooth, how their lips look soft, fresh and pinkish. That's why I bought BB Creams, and now lip tints. Look at Geum Jan Di's pic below. Doesn't she look so beautiful? (Even if she was just about to cry)
 Clear skin, rosy cheek, red lips. Very attractive.


Well, one of the her makeup secret is she was using TONYMOLY lip tint for her lips!

Lip tint/ lip stain is definitely popular these days. I think it was being popularized by Benetint from Benefit Cosmetics. 

The plus points why we should love lip tint are: 
1. The color is long lasting 
2. It looks natural
3. You can make gradation color!

This is mine. The bottle is sooo small.. (I've been using it several times before take the pics)

Actually, the lip tint comes with the 2 types packaging. One is the normal size, and the other one is the mini size. Because this was my first ever lip tint, so I bought this mini for giving it a try.

Here's the normal size of Tony Tint (cr:

The lip tint absorbs to your skin. 
1. First apply
2. leave it for few seconds
3. wipe it away

There are few ways to apply lip tint, but this is my very basic and simple way.

1. Apply the lip tint in few spots (They look bleeding o,O). The tony tint has water consistency. Different with my Etude House Dear Darling tint that has thick lip gloss consistency.

2. Blend it out with fingers. It dries pretty quick.

3. Apply few layers - especially in the inner semi circle area of the bottom and upper lip - until you get the red color you want. You can also add lip gloss after the last step.

Overall rating:  Color: Long Lasting: Packaging:☆ Smell: 

My final thought:
I LOVE the lip tint. It gives my lips "sudden fresh and bold" look. My friends made lots of compliments every time I use this lip tint, like "Your lips look red!", "You look more beautiful." , "There's something different, you look prettier." etc etc. Wow.. this made me realized that our lips color could make some differences to our appearance. 
the lip tint also long lasting. After I eat and drink, the color is still there, even if not as bold as the first apply. I think it's even getting more natural.

What I don't like about the tony tint and other lip tint is IT'S SO HARD TO APPLY IN MY UPPER LIP! the color hardly popped up. It's like I don't use any in my upper lip. That's why people also keep asking me , "Why don't you apply lipstick in your upper lip? why just in your bottom lip?" 
Well, I don't know the answer why the color won't visible. Anyone knows? ):

Last.. there's the most negative point about the MINI tony tint. The packaging.
After I use the tint and close the cap, the liquid starts to come out. This is really not good. I have to prepare tissues every time I use the lip tint. I quickly run out the lip tint.

But still, I quite satisfied with this TONYMOLY lip tint. It's completely different than using lipstick (:

Pink Glittery Gradation Nail Art

I LOVE making nail art!
Every time I get bored with my natural nail color, at least I color them with nail polish immediately. Sometimes when I'm in the mood, I will make beautiful nail art (:
This time, the nail art I want to show you was made with:
1. Etude House Petit Darling Nails PK008
2. OPI Mini Glittery Pink
3. Etude House LUCI Darling Fantastic Nails #05
4. Etude House Jewel Nail Stone (I forgot to take picture)

Here's the step by step to create the nail art. (I'm sorry the quality is so bad. I took the pics with smartphone)
1. Apply a thin layer of pink Petit Darling Nails starts from the edge till the tip of your nail surface.
2. Continue to apply few coats on the tip. Don't worry if the result is not neat. We will coat it again anyway.
3. Coat all over your nail surface with Glittery Pink polish.
4. Now is the fun part. Add bling with LUCI Darling polish and nail stone.
5. Finish it by applying your favorite top coat.

You can also be creative with adding nail sticker.

This is my most favorite nail art. I hope you like it too. Bye! x3

Etude House Dear Darling Tint #03

Hi again, everyone! Who knows and likes and use lip tint? Raise your hands please.. Oh, I forgot I couldn't see your hands xp (forget my randomness here). I had been curious with lip tint and decided to give it a try. My first attempt was using TONYMOLY lip tint. And this Etude House Dear Darling Tint #03 was my second attempt. Let's see how it works.

This is the front look. The liquid looks red. In fact, the tint has orange color.

See? It's orange.

Here it is my ugly bare lips.

I dab it to my lips, but it wasn't working. The color didn't pop out, so I swipe the lip tint like using a lip gloss. After this, I blended it with my finger.

This lip tint is like a jelly for me because it's glossy and viscous. It also tastes and smells sweet. And what I like the most, it doesn't feel dry to my lips.


Because the lip tint usually has sheer color, I suggest you to add layers to make the color more visible. For myself, my upper lip seems can't absorb the tint as good as my bottom lip so I have to add more more more layers.

After applying lip tint, you can use lip balm or lip gloss. You just have to remember to not apply those before the lip tint. It can mess up the lip tint applicator, makes your lip tint can't blend perfectly to your lips.

So this is it. Please share your experience using lip tint (:

Skin79 Hot Pink BB Cream Repackage?

Recently I bought a Skin79 Hot Pink BB Cream online for my friends. After I received and checked the packaging, suddenly I noticed something that bothering my sight. Few months ago I also bought the Hot Pink myself, but at a different online shop.

Let's say the online shop where I bought the BB cream for myself is "ol shop 1" and the other where I bought for my friends is "ol shop 2".

Maybe you all wondering why I bought the same BB cream at different places. It was because I saw that ol shop 2 sells cheaper beauty products than ol shop 1. So why not give it a try? I also have researched ol shop 2 from google and seemed that lots of ppl who have ordered products feel satisfied.

It's not that the ol shop 1 isn't a trusted seller. Ol shop 1 has became a permanent sponsor for a famous beauty blogger in Indonesia, so I also trust them.

Now, back at the packaging. The first thing that has caught my attention was the writing. On ol shop 2 BB cream bottle was written "wrinkle improvement", the box also was written "wrinkle improvement" while on ol shop 1 bottle was written "wrinkle free" but the box was written "wrinkle improvement".

The bottle and box supposed to have the same writing, right?

The box from ol shop 1 is a bit dented because of water spill

Look, here is the skin79 Hot Pink BB Cream 2010 new package I found on Eki Blog.
Skin79 Hot Pink BB Cream official ad

As I found the difference, I checked on the other packaging side of the both BB Creams. There are not so much differences actually.

The expiration date is not that distant

I asked an explanation from both of the ol shops, but only ol shop 2 who answered. The owner said that probably due to the fake bb creams out there, Skin79 constantly repackage its packaging. 

Beside of the packaging, my BB Cream works very well, there's nothing wrong for my skin. 

So, what do you guys think about this? Do you have the similar matter like this? Let's share! (:

Etude House Nymph Aura Volumer #1

Have you guys ever tried highlighter or illuminator before? I'm curious of those products because I want my face looks dewy glow, so I bought this volumer by Etude House. I've been quite curious with this Nymph Aura because it was promoted by Sandara Park and her skin looked so damn gorgeous! O yeah, the commercial was a success once again.
beautiful packaging and lovely colours

 Etude House Nymph Aura Volumer : Makeup Multi-Cream maximizing the radiance and dewy glow on skin, completing flawless skin with plumped up moisture.

 #1 Pure: Diamond Radiance, Excellent adhesion, moisturizing effect and nutrition supply

Apply evently on skin with 1:3 mix of BB cream or foundation. Use foundation brush or BB brush to get perfect blending. When used for highlighting, apply on the nose, forehead and cheekbones with the volumer alone.

So, I combined my Skin79 BB Cream with the Nymph Aura.
The ratio between the two is 1:3

Blend them together

Apply to your face

With natural light, outdoor

With flash, indoor

Overall rating: 
Oil control: 

Actually I can't really see the difference between before and after. And I have to say that I don't satisfied with the result, with its super priiiceeeyy cost. 
I was hoping that my skin will look like korean superstars or something. It was far from my imagination TT^TT

I think this product doesn't suitable for people who live in tropical country, have so many outdoor activities and have oily skin.

What do you guys think about this product? For everyone who ever tried, did you satisfied with the result?
