hi end beauty needs

Been thru lots of ups and downs this week, so i better cheer myself up by writing (seriously) about products that i am eager to try. I considered these products in "need" and "want" category or both. whatever.

Here they are (jeng .. jeng!!) :

1. Brush set

I dont know that brush set is actually a good investment for anyone who wanted to learn further about make up. It's a bit expensive and but well we did have choice to buy brush depends on our needs. For example, we only need brush to blend eye shadow and smudge applicator, then just buy it. But idk why, i am a kind of person, that likes to equip myself with complete set in anything. My former brush set is travel set of The Body Shop which comes in mini size. they did the job pretty well, and i dont find anything harsh with that. Then again, when i did blogwalking i found it pretty cute to have one complete set of long brush (not in mini size). Until now, i dont know what brand i am going to choose, some people say "ELF" or "Masami Shouko" or even well known brand such as "MAC" or "MUFE". But when i buy, it will totally look like this and i will have brush to blend my eyeshadow :

these one come from MAC. Fabulous. Believe they are really smoooooooothhhhh. Or from ELF like below :

They surely cute. I will check the price later. And remember, always invest on the good quality of make up brush, because they will do the job perfectly well.

2. YSL Touche Eclat

Heard it. Saw it. But never try it. In so many reviews, it's actually good. But some of the bloggers try to warn the pre-user like me, that YSL TE is actually a "HIGHLIGHTER" not a concealer (based on their personal experience) so dont hope it will cover all of your dark circles, basically around your tired eyes. But idk why (again) i do will to try it :) here's their claim (which was a total contrary with the bloggers' opinion)

The beauty secret of the world's top makeup artists and models, Touche Éclat is the original must-have for a radiant, flawless face.

Capture 8 hours of sleep with the click of a pen. With a few strategic strokes of this award-winning complexion highlighter—dark circles, fine lines and signs of fatigue virtually disappear. Powered by the radiance-boosting Luminocaptide Complex, skin is instantly illuminated, so you look rested and refreshed—even if you’ve been up for hours. Sleek and sophisticated, it discretely slips into a makeup bag for quick touch-ups anytime. It’s the one beauty essential no woman should ever be without.

i just can't resist it. :p i do try to find perfect shade for me via their web, and since my complexion is light to medium so i should come with "Light peach" and by the swatch i saw on their web, i think it's pretty good. Can't wait to come to their store or stumbling upon some web for cheaper price.  So far, none of the opinion or finding is avoiding me from TE. I am just so eager to try.

3. Wet n' Wild Eye Shadow - You Had Me at Hello

I knew WnW since i was in junior-hi. Know that the brand is totally famous. Never eager to try tho, since one of the blogger said that their e/s is actually very good. And somehow i stumble upon Zalora website and found that they sell this product. I fell in love with "You Had Me at Hello" shade. The colour seems good and usp from WnW is they name every shade is for what part of the eye. Wondering whether the dark blue part actually the same as e/s Sariayu Kelimutu Series. But, i just love it! In Zalora they only sell it for less than IDR 200,000. And yes i need black to do my smokey eyes ;)

4.  NARS (Blush on, Lipstick, eyeshadow)

In every review of best cosmetics that i read, whether it's local or international, somehow they always mention, MUFE, MAC or NARS. But i found NARS has some typical bold colours that i fell in love with. And the packaging is like deep black with joint letter and super bold colours. Mesmerizing my eyes.

I am interested in some pieces of product they have (so far) it's NARS Blush on in Orgasm and NARS lipstick in 4 shades and texture

Heat Wave Semi Matte Lipstick

Dolce Vita Sheer Lipstick

Amsterdam Pure Matte Lipstick

Carthage Pure Matte Lipstick
Mad Mad World Duo e/s

"Orgasm" Blush on

They are totally cute! not cute for sure...hmmm i dont know how to express .. sophisticated. Look at that Mad Mad World e/s, tempting colour! and that Amsterdam lipstick, oh so bold and vivid! Can't wait those to glide on my face and make some miracles for this face! Wuwuwuwuwwuwuuwuwuw ...
I dont know how to find official NARS store here in Indonesia. Yet, there r so many online shop sell their products. I hope to find one soon. And turns out that i have a friend now residence in UK, maybe i can ask her to find me one. :)

5. Revlon Photoready Concealer

I found this on Emily eddington tutorial (almost in all tuts), And i found this is worth to try :) good coverage and easy blending texture (as seen on video).
I will visit Revlon's booth directly to find the perfect shade for me! Yay!

6. UDPP (Urban Decay Primer Potion - eye shadow)

Everytime i read blog or tutorial, i always found this UDPP in the very first line of base. At first, i dont know what is that, but then, some of the bloggers are kind enough to explain what is that. And turns out that is the best Eye primer/base every1 wear :) The price is a bit overly priced, so i will buy it somehow when i have enough penny.

7. Face Primer - MUFE HD Face Primer

Everyone is talking about it. And i am going to try for this.

8. E.l.f Contouring Blush and Bronzer 

This is a good quality products ( well a bit powdery but fine )  for contouring face. I am going to try this, after i finish my Sariayu Shimmering Powder.

All written in this post will be true someday. Mean while, i have just ordered online 3 elf products, and i will review them asap. Lately, i have been following emily eddington blog and vlog (utube) beautybroadcast,net :) it is fun and teaching me lots of things! especially for drugstore cosmetics and natural/daily make up :) check out her twitter also @emilynoel83 .. for beginners like me, it is trully helpful! and also the vlog is fun :))))
