This is tuesday.

such not a professional to confess that they are bored with routines.

well the thing is i am bored with the dose of this work. Much lower dose than i use to do :( feel half jobless.

The pressure is not on, or is it just not yet?

It's kinda funny, because when i start to nag about "why i am kinda jobless?" and then comes a situation when you  just being too busy and dont have time, and you feel like "OMG! i am so busy, i dont have time for myself!" sort of things.

Ah. Human.

and btw. i was late again today.

My 10 Beauty Wishlist

This posting exist not because now i worked in cosmetic company. But because i already try the tester and want to own the product :)

There are 10 items that actually include in my wishlist. Start from skin care.

1. Sariayu Facial Mask Mawar

The product is well known for its ability to keep skin firm, moist and elastic.

It's not pricey. Only Rp 20,000 for 90ml. It's use for weekly treatment.

Why interested in this product? our skin needs weekly treatment after abused with make up, (cleanser with alcohol), face expression, and also dirt and dust out there.

Besides i already try first, the toner and cleanser from the same range. Rose series is for normal to dry skin type.

2.  Sariayu Night Cream Rose

I used to not care about night cream usage. Imo, should skin actually clean and free from anything, before we sleep? But yesterday when i did skin check, i found lots of signs that my skin is just too dry and the elasticity is low. Plus lots of wrinkles caused by too dry effect.

For daily dose moisturizer, i use The Body Shop Vitamin E Series (Day Cream). Turns out that it's not enough, because the BA (Beauty Advisor) said that i need night cream. So, after the skin check, i decided to look around. And voila! i found Sariayu Night Cream Rose.

Why interested in this product? (not because now i work in the company itself) but because i already try their cleanser and toner, and feel ok with that. I think, why dont i complete the series with using the nite cream?

It's to keep skin more elastic and help to regenerate cells while sleeping.
The price is Rp 17,000 for 25gr. I have read so many good reviews about this product. Consumer said it's light and make skin softer.

3. BB Cream Caring

BB is used to describe bad odor of someone. Now BB means Blemless Balm. It's the combination of foundation and moisturizer. So it's kinda simpler. I never try  BB cream before, but everyone say it's good because it's not only moisture your skin, it's also perfect to cover spots and blend the skin tone.

So far, Caring BB Cream is one of the good brand among BB Cream. (lots of said Maybelline BB cream is bad because it becomes oily after usage couple of hours)

i still dont know which product am gonna use. But, Affi in fashionesedaily said Everlast is the best of all :) I am going to try the other variant, just try to match with skin tone. I have seen lots of living prove people who used it, and also the test of the staying power, basically good and not oily.

The price is about Rp 59,000.

4. Sariayu Shimmering Powder

Actually, this is not happening to be included in my wish list. But yesterday, when the BA do make up for me, she used this (white part) around my brow-bone as highlighter. And i feel like "wow, this is good" all in one package. Here's the pic :

So basically it's a powder (the big brown part), the pink one can be used as eye shadow, or blush on, the small brown part is for shading and the small white part is for highlighting.  When u brush altogether, it becomes shimmery finish for the face. It's good :) You can use it depends on ur needs.

It contains Pomegranant extract and also Amethys powder to keep your skin moisturized and glowing. The price is Rp 48,000, not expensive for all in one make up

5. PAC Two Way Cake Powder

Before working here, PAC (Professional Artist Cosmetic) is not so well known in my ear. It's a professional line from Martha Tilaar designed for Make up artist, or professional.

Recently, i become interested in this line also because it's review, the long lasting power. Besides, i ever saw my friend use this compact powder and the result is smooth finished.

PAC price is a bit pricey, Rp 128,500. What i like about it is the shape is a bit different from others. Beside the packaging is also black. BA suggest me TWC 02 Ochre for my skintone.

6. Sariayu Automatic Eye Brow Pencil

As far as i know, nothing compete Viva in brow pencil. But, then after i try myself a tester of Sariayu Automatic Eye Brow pencil, i feel delighted. Not because it has double tools, the pencil and the brush, it's also creates a  natural look for my eye brow, and the color is also black :) but not make your face look like a Kabuki player.

 See? After applying the pencil, you can use the brush to brush your brow to create natural looks. The price is Rp 55,000. Natural eye brow is the most essential thing for make up, i guess.

7. Sariayu Eye Shadow Trend 2012 (Bena Edition)

I already buy the Kelimutu series (which is more colorful) yet it's not applicable for daily use because it's too bright. Now, i am searching for warmer and natural color, and my choice is Bena edition, from Sariayu Trend Warna 2012.
When i apply the tester, it seems shiny but the colour isnt popped out and it blend very well. I like it. Plus the price for the trio eye shadow is only Rp 40,000. Cheap!

8. Sariayu Duo Eye Make Up (Eye liner and Mascara)

Hmm .. i am not usually using 2 in 1 products. But somehow is just good and complete. So why searching separate products? Like this Sariayu Duo Eye Make Up

You dont have to full up your make up pouch with separate eyeliner and mascara. Yet this is a complete package also stay longer and waterproof and not make your eyes look like panda. The price is Rp 49,000

One more thing what i like about this is the packaging. Comes with peacock colour and also gold and embossed style.

9. PAC Lipstick Matte ML02 Indian Red 

Believe me, it's my first time buying a lipstick. So far (in almost 25 years of my life) i never really have a lipstick. Because i feel not so confidence picking the right color and applying it to my lips, because my lips is full, wide, and plumpy. Using the wrong color is only make my lips thicker and in indonesian said "jeding"

But, i think my journey of finding right colour for lipstick has finally done. Yesterday, when i was doing expo in Kemayoran, i try various kinds of colour of lipstick. And my choice is fall for PAC Matte Lipstick Indian Red ML02, because plumpy wide lips doesn't need too much sheer or gloss look.

So, i try. and wipe. and try. and wipe. (just to make sure) that it's the right colour.
Well, yes it is! PAC Matte Lipstick ML02 Indian Red is just perfect for me. But, then i still want to test whether this lipstick will dried my lips or not. After couple of hours, it's just smooth and feels good. Beside it doesn't smell bad. I'm getting sure to buy this product.

The price is Rp 85,500. Just like the other PAC packaging, it comes in black and dove packaging. Looks exclusive and luxurious.

10. PAC Lip Gloss LGF 02

So, the plumpy lips no need lipgloss. But, who cares? the wet shimmery looks is one thing i cant ressist. So to keep it not too shiny and still matte look, i choose this PAC Lip Gloss LG02, the texture is gloss but not wet look. Only healthy and shiny lips. Costs you Rp 69,500.

So, that's all the beauty wish list and when i do total (if i buy those products) it's just less than Rp 500,000. AMAZING!

I cant wait until the end of the month, so i can fulfill all of my desire for this products! :)

nouveau kingdom

Hello. it's actually a month i already work in the new kingdom :)

it was fun, lots of knowledge, it's like the pre-relationship time, when you are still unsure and guessing about a lot of things but feel totally happy sometimes. It's quite challenging actually. roallercoaster feeling.

Here are some details from my one month experience:
  1. Distance. the office is very close from my house. its like 20 minutes to get there (if it's not traffic, yet it is will expand to 30-35mins) well, but still better compared to my last office which was in Kuningan, like you need an hour or more to get there, plus you have to face lots of challenges in the  street like macet tiada akhir and nunggu PPD 213, which like a tons of people waits for it too. in the end, i know that, when ur office is very close from ur house it's like reducing 80% of ur problems. But, the only thing thats worst is you cant lie bcos of traffic when u'r late.
  2. Absence. In my former office, absence machine is just absence machine. Just to measure ur status, whether ur dilligent (not working late-exactly 8hrs-tengGo!) or ur a company slave (working hours depends on ur boss' request). There's no exact arrival time. In here, u have to come straight before 8 am or exactly at 8am. if more, then ur late. If ur late 5 times in a row in a month, u get warning letter. Well, i wouldnt say it's negative, but i am considering it as a challenge. Yet, sometimes we dont always win over the challenge.
  3. Linux. I already buggin abt this since the former part. Well, after a month, we're getting friendly each other (still frenemies tho) it was hard actually. Like u ve been together with someone for 15 years and now u found someone new, and change all of the habits. Adjusting. Though human and software is completely different.
  4. Meetings. It's a fun things when meeting comes. no,you no talk something boring. You talk about beauty class, or properties, or layout, or product (colourfull-smells good-can be applied on skin). Sometimes, i found myself  stumbling upon "how tos" presentation for facial, daily make up or new product launching. Simply grateful. even sometimes we do meeting in the salon or spa, sniffing aromatheraphy.  nomo poison.
  5. People. i havent connect to lots of people,yet. But just like Linux, i think it's my challenge and im gonna win over this thing. So far i've met the queen and the family, which is Mrs.Tilaar herself. She's a great woman.
Some of the past were still not over me. Proved that my substitute were still calling me for some working stuff and as a good person, i wont reject his call/ message (except im busy or just simply fed up with his call). But, i think he has to learn to stand by his own or a.k.a leave me alooonee!

Not all the experience r smooth. Some just rough. Last time, when we have meetings with candidate for investors, my boss invited me to the meeting because he wanted me to learn further.

At the meeting, there's one kid of the queen, and everytime we start presentation with video, he asked me to turn off and followed with turn on the lights.
Idk, i feel kinda, wth? i invited to this meeting and my job was only to listen and being a lighting girl? i feel so .. dissapointed.

Then followed with this thing. The candidates were treated at the day spa, and there's nobody to accompany them. All of sudden, everybody pointed me to come with the 3 Phillipinos investors. to the spa. just to accompany. not joining the spa. So, there i went. doing some pep talks and faux smiles.

That day, i feel terrible. Because i think, come on! i moved to the other company to get better. in everything. y do i still have to do this stuff? this is a JONGOS stuff.

And also on Monday, i escort the wife of the investors from Hotel to Queen's house. Another peptalks and so on. i mean, like i cant believe this.

i refused to think anything. I only think that, shudnt i be in the better position? i kept on digging questions for being treated this way.

But then, i feel, i cant always behave like this. Keep refusing anything that isnt goes based on my standard. I have to accept bcos this is what i chose.
Well maybe this is like the part of package.

i have to adjust myself into the situation. That's how to deal with something new.

Besides, i dont know where it leads .. it might leads to something good, maybe.

Then i said to myself, being deffensive to something you dont know, maybe it's not the right thing to do right now.

We'll see. well, sometimes it's my old insecurities try to strike me back. But, Im trying to win over this mind trick.

Adjust. Accept.
