Lorac Nude Skinny Palette

It's time for Eyeshadow Palette!

Been a fan of Jen Frmheadtotoe since long time, and I tend to buy makeup that she uses. Ha! I am that easy kind of customer. Haha. I bought Tarte blush in Blissful because of Jen. And this time I purchased Lorac Nude Skinny Palette because she mentioned it a lot in her videos! 

What I love the most about this palette of course is the neutral earthy color, that will never go wrong for my skin tone. I can use all the matte and shimmer colors: the soft color for daily basis and the dark one for smokey look. It has good pigmentation and very well blendable. 

And guess what, it comes with very affordable price, purchased it under 200k, so I can forgive for the not so girly or elegant packaging (mine is messy now >,<).

Products that I use to achieve my look today: 
(I used Shu Uemura foundation which was not in the picture because I took it in previous post)

Shu Uemura The Lightbulb : Fluid Foundation 574 VS Oleo-Pact Foundation 574

Hi hi. I am back with Fotd look using my fave Shu Uemura the lightbulb foundation. Actually I have two different foundations, so I think why not make a comparison look for them both.

The before: bare face

The after

Side by side before after 

Can you guess which one is fluid foundie /oleo-pact foundie?
Difficult question right, because they dont really appear on those pictures.

Who guess it right?

My right side of the face is using fluid foundie, and the left one is using oleo-pact foundie. Believe me, in real life I dont see much difference either.

I love both of them. They cover my redness and acne scar well but not too much. Me is still me. Of course you can achieve more coverage by using more of the product. 

I notice that using oleo-pact is a bit trickier, because of the creamy texture, it tends to cling on my dry patch. So you better moisturize your skin really well before using this.

And I found that the fluid foundation is last longer than oleo-pact. So I think I will repurchase the fluid one. 

Ah one thing, dont forget to wash the sponge regularly!

Counter price:
Shu Uemura the lightbulb fluid foundation 650k for 27ml
Shu Uemura the lightbulb oleo-pact foundation 690k for ..... 10gr! Do your math ;)

DIY Kids Superheroes Birthday

My sister asked me a couple weeks ago to help her preparing her son's birthday party. And because my nephew is so mad about Spider Man, Iron Man, and Captain America so she decided to make them the theme of the birthday party.

It was a small party with my nephew's friends and of course their moms, so my sister requested only small superheroes themed decoration table.

The internet and google makes our life easier, right? I've got all the things that we want.

Our decoration table consists of:

  1. Cake and cookies (made by my sister's friend)
  2. Cupcake from Komugi Bakery and cupcake topper
  3. Jelly satay (very easy to make)
  4. Popcorn trumpet (DIY from my sister's friend)
  5. Milks
  6. Balloons (lots of them)

Cupcake topper and anything else :

OOTD : Featuring Longchamp Mariniere in Coral

Hi hi, I am back with OOTD post :)

My fiancee is so sweet, he gave this beautiful Longchamp Mariniere as my birthday gift. I was so surprised because these last two years, we just tell the gift we want from each other, simply because we just want to get real, a gift that the other really want, so no surprise at all. And this year, I told him not to buy me anything because we need to save up for the future. But, surprise, surprise! I love him so so much! <3 p="">
So let me not waste it, by wearing it proudly for my OOTD last Satuday. It's beautiful, isn't it? :")

Top : Executive
Short : Body & Soul
Watch : Fossil
Bag : Longchamp Mariniere
Shoes : Nine West

Happy Midweek!

Sukin Skincare : Sulphate and Paraben Free

I did mention that I am allergic to Sulphate or SLS and Paraben last time, and I think I have to share my story here. In case anyone is wondering.

This allergic was so nasty, I had itchy and flaky skin, all over the body (except my face, it just dry or red, not itchy, thank God). I applied body butter every time after taking a bath, but the moisture only last 3-4 hours, I hate it, not to mention the sticky yucky feeling. The same thing happened when I apply lotion, the moisture even only lasts about 2 hours.

I tried almost every brand for soap and lotion, from The Body Shop, Sebamed, Loccitane, Bath and Body Works to Origins. Nothing really works. Some even brought me to itchy skin, I have to throw away the product or give it away for my mom or sister (they don't have sensitive skin like me,fyi)

So when I know that I might be have this kind of allergic, I changed my entire body care to Sulphate and Paraben free products. Thanks to Female Daily forum particularly in Organic Skincare thread, I found Sukin.

From their website:
Sukin is proud Australian brand, dedicated to offering the ultimate in natural personal care, free from the myriad of harsh chemicals used in many products on the market today. Sukin products do not contain Sodium Lauryl Sulphate (SLS), Sodium Laureth Sulphate (SLES),  synthetic fragrances, animal derivatives, harsh detergents, propylene glycol, artificial colours, triethanolamine, mineral oils, EDTA, or parabens.
My picks are Botanical Body Wash, Purifying Body Scrub, and Hydrating Body Lotion. I purchased them from Been using it religiously since last month, and I significantly see the progress. My skin is not itchy nor flaky (very good point!) instead it's soft and supple. Cam't thank God enough.

Geez, I wish I found it this information earlier. I feel pity for my dry skin because of my ignorance toward the ingredients all of this years. I simply thought that I was born with 'that' kind of skin T_T
