Get Ready With Me sharing and Reviews!

Hi Everyone! 

Not so busy actually trying to adjust with Ramadhan the holy month. Because you sleep less and also eat less :p Been thru it like almost 18 years, but still adjusting. Poor me.

Yes, for you who knows and following my twitter, must have known that i have been addicted to Get Ready With Me - Morning Routine videos on Youtube! Because i do have problems with my morning routines, since i am always wake up late, and being negatively lazy in the morning. So when i actually watch theseeee videoss it makes my spirit pumped and feeling inspired, that there are thousands of people whom actually enjoy and make the most of their morning routine :) So yeah, it helps much! For those of you who's curious, just click the link above. My best two videos of Morning Routine goes to :


it's from Tanya Burr - The UK Beauty Youtuber! <3 her="" much="" p="" so="" videos="">

and also 

This one is Tiffany - the famous Youtube Beauty Guru :)

I just love how they seems prepared for weekday and even weekend. Imo, it's the way how to appreciate life, that actually is God's gift to embrace everyday with joy and gratefullness.

Like i said in my previous post :) that actually i have two things comes along last week, and joining my beauty kits :) it's Sigma F30 Large Powder Brush and Sets of Travel Essential from Real Techniques! Am so happy!

Sigma F30 Large Powder Brush

the bristles - simply just like any other face/powder brush
Very soft! Love it!


I just straightly goes on to my final verdict about this brush : it's a MUST HAVE! because it's large, it's super soft, it's rounded edges, and it's Sigma! :) Perfect for applying blush, powder, or bronzer! Lovely! it's a 9.5 out of 10. Totally worth the price (200K IDR). But it's not really good for travelling, since it's quite big and eating space in your make up bag. But, fear not, that's why i bought the Real Techniques Travel Essential, so i can now bring my brushes with me without being afraid of hurting em.

Real Tech Travel Essential case - comes in black and handy fit

l-r : flat foundie brush, flat eyeshadow brush, multi task brush

I love this set! i did. But for some reasons, i only can love the case and the multi task also eyeshadow brush. I am trying to make the flat foundie brush a good tools for me. Yes it is applying bb cream nicely, but the bristles is too dense, and it's hurting my face :( not a fan of flat foundie brush from RT. So i changed it with my Sigma F80 Flat Kabuki Brush for applying my everyday foundie/ bb cream. And it feels better, afterward. My personal score for this is 8 out of 10. Both of eyeshadow and multi task brush is soft, but not as soft as my Sigma F40 and my E.L.F flat eyeshadow brush. But it's usable and the price is logical for the kit (235K IDR). Actually i am just into the case, because it's handy and versatile :)

And there you go! my lovely new member on the beauty kits :) loving it and been travelling with me almost everyday ever since it's arrived!

Thanks for reading my post and hopefully you had a nice weekend with fam, friends, and loved ones!

*today i will be doing errands and cleaning, then straight to go fasting break together avec ma meilleures amis! Can't wait :)

WISHLIST : RT TRAVEL ESSENTIAL & THEBALM SEXY MAMA



WOW!
two blog posts - two days in a row! isn't it lovely? (selfpraise)
it's because in this holly Ramadhan month, i got chance to come home on time, and do lots of other non working related things! :)
okay, so now won't blabber about review, just wanted to share moment of truth  a.k.a my wishlist!

Real Techniques Travel Essential

Aren't you tired hearing me blabber about this? This is a proof of random impulsiveness that become obsession. Because ... the review are GOOD going BEST, they have BRUSH CASE (STANDING PANORAMIC BRUSH CASE), and they ARE SOFT AND TEMPTING AND SCREAMING TO BE BOUGHT (this is just reason)!

Here's the look :

travel essentials
Real Techniques Travel Essential

LOVELY! the reviews said the brush is soft, no shed, great handle, and gorgeous!
It consists of foundation brush (classic shape like painter), multi task brush (for powder,blush), and multi tasker for e/shadow!
What's not to love? yet in my favorite online shop right now it's ready stock! Isn't it a sign? Isn't it?
I am just going to buy it, especially because they have travel case and i literally love to "travel" with my brush :)
Just for information, Real Techniques is tools created by beauty guru, Sam Chapman & Pixiwoo. Here's the link to the web Real Techniques Brush, do check their web for amazing tools in superb price :)


The Balm Sexy Mama Anti Shine Transluscent Powder or E.L.F Transluscent Mattifying Powder

Yes, i do need another kind of pressed powder, but .. right now i'm in the intersection which is:

Should i buy the two way cake pressed powder or just transluscent mattifying powder?

Because, imo if i buy the 2waycake, i think it will be very cakey in this humid Jakarta, yet if i buy only transluscent powder, will it ever cover my imperfection? This is such a hard time for me and i need someone to lean on (too much expression)

So, i decided to give this a try, because i think, i can buy two way cake in moments later in drugstore brand.
It's two choices between Thebalm or ELF, it's like you want to eat beef or fish? (because the price difference).. but i do consider Sexy Mama simply because it collects good review more than ELF. 

Here's the look of both product :
TheBalm Sexy Mama 
ELF Transluscent Mattifying Powder

So yes this isn't high quality blog post but just another rambling around two products, if compared to world's problem. I will review them soon i got them :) 

Today, i feel so dissapointed simply because i've been longing to eat martabak coklat kacang keju and then when i ate them, it tasted awful and not the same as they used to be :( that is sad, especially if you already fasting one day, and really need to be pleased with good food. 

And, some kinds of thoughts entered my mind without permission (oh please) : is there any workplace situation, where boss and staff are trully getting along? without competition, cruel intention or even backstabbing? being honest to each others words' and thoughts? accepting each others without any hidden agenda? Wondering how peace that would be. And i bet there won't be the so called "high turnover" :)  Just my imagination!

I am so longing for Sunday, because it is the first time i will watch football match live in a stadion! It's ARSENAL FC versus National Team (it's my bf's will, i am just a follower, and a ticket orderer)

Good night, good people! thanks for reading this post and have a nice dream :) 
See you!

REVIEW : TheBalm Hot Mama & L'Oreal Base Magique


Hello!

So bad at blogging consistency :(  Actually i did have some spare time, but yet, i was just being too lazy to do anything that required thinking :p

Lately, i have to admit, that i am so lazy to put on make up :( maybe because i need to repair my skin since now it has some kind of small pimples around my forehead, not worse, but still i need to do something. So daily i am just using, eyebrow pencil, eyeliner (a must! can't live without it), blush on and lipstick. No moisturizer, BB cream, foundation, powder, or even eyeshadow. And, what's worse is ... my intensity buying make up is surely lessen this month, i just bought a lip tint from Max Factor and Sigma F30 (is this worse or good?) well, in my opinion, it's kinda different "me". It's actually good for my money, to save, not to splurge on another kind of blush on or lipstick. Though i'm raving Real Technique the Travell Essential. I am just so curious about the multi task brush anyway, and really want to have the brush holder, to save my brush while travelling (making reasons).

Enough about the selftalk, so let's start doing some haul review from last month :) Not much, but quite essential for me :

TheBalm Hot Mama Shadow/Blush

So, actually i already have my Maybelline Dream Blush in shade Wooden Rose (which i think imo, is quite similar or at least is one family with NARSorgasm). But, i stopped by at some reviews about this blush, and i feel that .. i should give this a try! And searching for this blush isn't easy because (at that time, i dont know that TheBalm sold here. poor me.), so it's been a running around the blog and thread searching for the reseller in Indonesia, and i finally found one in SURABAYA! Gosh. So this is it :


the packaging! classic 60's i bet?


gold rose shade with shimmer


the swatch  - upside is another product's swatch



Let's jump into the conclusion :

PLUS :
+ Great packaging, in design and how sturdy it is!
+ Pigmented colour
+ A little goes along the way - just a little to make ur cheek brighter!
+ good staying power
+ Very lovely gold rose shade :) 
+ equipped with mirror 

MINUS :
+ be careful when applying, too much can cause reddish shade instead of warm gold rose
+ hard to find here in Indonesia (buy it online or in the certain Mall only)
+ Expensive :((( i bought it for 150K IDR, yet it's officially sold for above  200K IDR

Overall, i LOVE this product a lot for the cuteness of the packaging and also the gold rose colour :) but for the price and the availability is a bit turn down for me :( so i am going to give it  8 out of  10! Still a good number, aight?

L'Oreal Base Magique

What is this? Basically it's a primer, but they said it's not just another primer, which is a Transforming Smoothing Primer. Here's the look of the product (imo, slightly as pinky as olay) :

the packaging - jar of thick glass - looking sturdy!

The product - creamy yet light/not watery at all

The swatch 

PLUS :

+ Easy to find almost everywhere in L'Oreal counter even @ drugstore like Watson, Century, Guardian.
+ Light texture not watery at all
+ Really smoothing out our skin, and seems absorbing any excess oil! Mattifying effect :) 
+ No distinctive smell, which i like :)

MINUS :

+ A bit expensive - but yet you only need small amount of pea to cover quite wide area
+ Hard to blend - if you're not careful it will clump and looks like a bunch of clogging pores and makeup

Do i like this product? Well, so far it's better than my Rimmel Fix & Perfect, because it doesnt leave my skin shiny and greasy. The score? 9 out of 10! :) 


O i think i need another eyeliner, for creating my daily pin up look :) I've been crazy about the pin up eyeliner style. Here's the pic for you who doesn't know the pin up eyeliner style look like :

I have been pulling this look for my daily look, and now i am dare enough to pull it in my waterline :) turns out that it's so FUN yet changing my whole looks :) getting more dramatic and PIN UP! I am using Revlon Colorstay Retractable Eyeliner in Black (just rave review : it's a good quality!)

  

Random model. Pic taken from google.com


my pin up eyeliner style :)

 Yes probably the end of this month will be : the travel essential from RT, Compact powder (any brand embrace it with arms open), and also some of the unintended items :) *asalways

Good night everyone and Happy Fasting in this holly Ramadhan month :) Thanks for reading this post!
