My Opinion : Bioderma Crealine TS H2O

Hi there ladies!

Long time no post, I don't have any excuse for this. I just don't know what I want to write about :(
But today I wanna share my experience with you about the Bioderma Crealine TS H2O. When I went to Paris about 2 weeks a go, I found this thing at some kinda drugstore place called Pharmacy or something I don't even remember.

I really want to try it for so long, but they're not available where I live. Yes I can order it online through online shop, but the price is insanely pricey because of the size is extremely huge it's 500ml *sigh*. So when I saw this Bioderma I grab it without thinking. They have great deals for it, I got mine in two bottles for about 18 euros, if I just get one bottle it cost 16 euros. great deals right?

It's quite rare for me to buy skincare that not available in my country, because if i end up liking it it's hard for me to repurchase it unless order it online. But I'm dying to try this Bioderma. It have quite a few of choice (pink and green cap) I don't know the different of that so I pick the pink one because a lot of people have been reviewing the pink cap *lame*.

Bioderma has a lot of good review around YouTube and many blogs. They who have tried it say it's the best makeup remover even can remove the waterproof mascara and eyeliner. They also said it doesn't have any smells and it's oil free. Bioderma also helps to improve the skin. I wanna try it  because I wanna feel the hypeness of this thing, yes you read it right ladies :D I have using this for about 2 weeks, I'm not tried it when I was in Paris because I scared it's gonna leak on my suitcase. I can't describe the ingridients of it because all the writing is in French which I don't know at all.

First let's review about the packaging, I love the packaging even it's huge but it simple and looks 'high end' and I can see how much it left because the bottle is clear. Yes it can be difficult to travel with, but I always can transfer into the smaller bottle right?

For me it doesn't work with my waterproof mascara, I always wear waterproof mascara and eyeliner. Bioderma doesn't take off anything on my eyes except my eyeshadow and brow powder meeeh! i quite dissapointed whit it :( I much prefer oil based eye makeup remover. For removing my BB cream, foundation and all the good stuff on my face it works wonders! I just put a little amount on my cotton pad and it's remove all my face makeup. The best thing about this product is I definitely can see my skin is getting better. Before I going to Paris, I have a quite a few bumps on my foreheads and my cheeks. Now it's completely gone, my skin a lot smoother :)

Last thing I wanna share with you is the smells and it feels on my skin. I found funky smells on it, it smells like liquid sugar, you know when you ordered unsweetened tea, they gave you liquid sugar thing, it smells like that! I'm not enjoy the smells at all. It feels sticky on my face, after using this for remove my makeup I always wash my face with cold water because I can't stand the stickyness on my face. And the taste, yeah the taste is bitter, taste it accidentally hehehe right after I using this I licked my lips.

Overall I like this product, I'm not sure if I'm gonna repurchase it or not because they're not available here. But I know it's available at Singapore.

Thank you for reading, hope this post help you ladies

Have a great Monday :)

Battle of Lipbalm

Hi there ladies!!

Winter is here! or shall I say wet season hehe. The weather get colder and my lips became drier and drier plus majority of my time I spent in room with air conditioner that makes my lips dry like hell. I'm pretty much have obsession with moisturizing stuff.

I think it would be fun if I share my opinion about my lipbalm galore, shall we start? :)

  •  Burt's Bee Beewax Lip balm : it have menthol in it so it will give your lips cool sensation. In my opinion it doesn't really moisturize my lips enough plus it's really hard to open it! not so my favorite, not gonna repurchase it.
  • Elizabeth Arden Eight Hours Lip Protectant : it's moisturizing my lips really good, but it have a weird smells :(. I usually apply it when I go to bed and when I woke up in the morning my lips are super super soft. If I can found it, I'm gonna repurchase it.
  • Smith's Rosebud Salve : I'm sure you're familiar with this lipbalm. A lot of people love this stuff, have a great rose smell. But if you're not a rose lover don't buy it, because the smells it kinda strong. I always take this baby with me every where. This is the best lipbalm I've ever try, definitely gonna repurchase it.
  • Marks & Spencer Raspberry Lip Butter : it's quite thin for lip butter, the consistency is more thin than Elizabeth Arden and Rosebud Salve one. It's an ok lipbalm not too crazy about this but the smells and the taste really yummy :9.
  • Nivea Essential Care : have been my favorite lipbalm for years and years. Great quality can't beat the price very affordable. Doesn't have smells or taste. But my problem with this stuff is melt really easy.
  • Nivea Med Protection : it have medication purpose but I don't think it works. Don't waste your money for this :(.
  • Khiel's Lip Balm in Mango : too pricey for lip balm but it works wonders! Smells exactly like fresh mango yuum, but doesn't taste like mango. Try it you'll not regret it. The consistency it's quite similar like the Mark & Spencer.
  • Maybelline Baby Lips : I don't know which flavor this is, it's kinda fruity and nice smells love the smells but I don't think this worth the hype all over beauty world. This is just an ok lipbalm nothing special.
  • Revlon Lip Treatment with SPF 15 : it have a hint of vanilla smell for me and it also have the tingly feeling but doesn't make your lips plump
Thank you for reading, hope you like it
Happy weekend :)

My Opinion : Urban Decay All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray

Hi there ladies!

Just received my  Urban Decay All Nighter Spray, this is my second time purchasing this stuff. I'm sure you're familiar already with this product.  I've tried the 'share' size.. yeah you read it right sharing. Basically it just like sample size from the seller to tried it out. I got mine in XL size when they having sale for this size, I'm not remember how much -___-.
The reason why I get in XL size because I love the product so much, I can't resist the great deal hehe

Hopefully you can read what they claim, basically this is a makeup setting spray to help your makeup last longer and make it look fresh up to 16 hours. Well for me it's not make my makeup last longer or what so ever, I can see my nose getting oily after 3 hours spray this stuff.
But this taking away the powdery finish from my skin and my skin looks more healthy. That's why I really love this.

I spray this after I've done my makeup

Overall I love my Urban Decay All Nighter Spray, I want to try the De Slick one after I finish up this.

Thanks for reading :)

Can't Get Enough with Neutral Eyeshadow

Hi there ladies!

Finally got my Stila In The Light Eyeshadow Palette. After debating with myself for almost 5 months to get Naked Palette from Urban Decay or not... well my heart drowned into Stila In The Light Palette :D. I promise to write my opinion about this Stila palette soon.

A little comparison :

Stila In The Light Palette and Urban Decay Naked Palette.

I'm not gonna swatch the Urban Decay Naked Palette because it's not mine, I borrowed from my boyfriend's sister for comparison purpose and I'm pretty sure you all ladies are familiar with the Urban Decay Naked Palette or maybe you have it :)

The Colors
Sorry for the bad lighting

My Opinion : Clinique Superbalanced Makeup

Hi there ladies!

I'm not a foundation wearer, in fact I don't have any foundation except NYX foundation which I hate because it's cakey and feels like mask on me ewwh. I also tried the Revlon ColorStay one but not really impressed with it. I'm looking for sheer to medium coverage, not full coverage and doesn't have SPF in it and of course not too expensive. I was googling and found this Clinique Superbalanced Makeup. I've been wearing this foundation since 2 months a go (I'm just wearing foundation for hang out and special occasion, not everyday). So here's my opinion

The container is made from glass which quite heavy and not too travel friendly, but I kinda like the matte looking glass :) also I love the size of it, not too tall so it fit perfect on my makeup drawer. Doesn't come with the pump, sometimes i pouring too much  and end up wasting some of the product.

My shade is 65 Neutral, lady at Clinique counter really help me to find the right shade for me and she's explain about each foundation they have so I can decided which one I wan to get. The shade is perfect for me.

I'm not an expert for reviewing foundation, I have to say that the finish of this foundation is 'skin' finish, not too dewy, not too matte. You still can see your skin through this foundation, because this is sheer to medium coverage, if you a full coverage foundation lover I'm not suggest this foundation you will disappointed.

For your preference, I have normal to oily skin (mostly on my T-Zone area I get oily). I need to blot my face after 3 hours applied this foundation. If you have super oily skin I'm not recommend this foundation. This foundation doesn't cakey up on me, I never have a 'smile line' problem with it.

I've tried 2 ways to apply this foundation. First with traditional foundation brush, but I'm not happy with the result because I can see the stroke on my face and it takes a long time to do it. Second one is with the E.L.F Powder Brush and the result is amazing, it even out the foundation application and doesn't take a long time.

It cost IDR 285,000 in Indonesia, not too expensive for high end foundation. I don't know if I would repurchase this, I'm dying to try Makeup For Ever HD Foundation.

Have you ever tried Clinique makeup?
