[Review] Etude House Precious Mineral BB Cream Cotton Fit in W13

Hello gorgeous!
Today I want to review one of the famous bb cream from Etude House. It's a Precious Mineral BB Cream Cotton Fit.
As you might know, the other bb cream from the precious mineral (Bright Fit) is one of the best seller bb cream from Etude House. I also had tried the Bright Fit one and I really like it.
Maybe some of you are wondering what's the different between the Bright Fit and Cotton Fit. It has different finish. The bright fit one is suitable for dry to normal skin so it has dewy finish, but the cotton fit one suitable for oily skin that's why it has silky towards matte finish.

The packaging looks like this:

Hello bloggers!
I don't have anymood to edit photos for reviewing products or making makeup tutorial. I'm so sorry :(
So today I decided to make Blog 101 series.

Halooo. Kali ini aku mau ngepost tentang Blog 101 *gara2 ga mood ngedit foto untuk review dan makeup tutorial* huhu maafkeun akuuhhh.
Jadi aku bikin post series baru ya.
Dan kali ini aku akan bahas Favicon.
Nah, buat yang ga tau Favicon itu apa, Favicon itu adalah icon/ gambar yang ada di sebelah nama web atau blog kamu (muncul pada browser kamu). Bisa dilihat digambar dibawah. 

The first one is.. Favicon!
Do you know what Favicon is?
Favicon is basically an icon that you would see on top of your browser beside your url name.
Like this.
If you are using blogger, before you changed your favicon, it would look like this
Do you notice the icon is different? That's because I've changed my favicon.
I'm sorry the tab looks different, that's because I'm using 2 different browsers to capture the link :p

How to change it?

[Review] It's Skin Aloe Soothing Gel

Hello beauties.
I am back with another review.
The product is.. It's Skin Aloe Soothing Gel.

For you that didn't know, It's Skin is a Korean brand :)
You should check it out.
I know this brand because 2PM used to be the brand ambassador ^^
I don't know if they still become one.

I've been searching a good moisturizer for my skin. And I found one. My skin is oily especially on the T-zone, but a bit dry on around my mouth and chin. Weird, huh? So I'm looking for the one that makes my skin less oilier and makes my mouth and chin area moister. I'm glad it is the one. It's my fave moisturizer now. It suits dry to oily skin. Yipiiieeyyy.

Selama ini aku nyari banget moisturizer buat kulit aku. Kulit aku tipe kombinasi, oily banget di daerah T ( dahi, hidung) dan pipi aku. Tapi sangat kering di daerah mulut dan dagu. Aneh yak ._. makannya itu susah banget nyari pelembab yang cocok buat aku. Dan aku senang sekali aku udah ketemu sama si Aloe Soothing Gel dari It's Skin.

Let's take a look into the product:

Korean Baby Face

Hello. I'll have my mid term test next week, so I don't have time to edit photos or make makeup tutorials. I'm so sorry >.<
So I decided to share this post about typical Korean Baby Face.

As you might know, most woman or girls love to look younger than they actually are. So do Korean woman.
The term "baby face" is common there. I don't know in other country, but in Indonesia, it is also very common.

Nah, kali ini aku akan bahas tentang "Baby Face". Tentu aja dong sebagai cewek nih ya, kebanyakan akan lebih suka kalau kita terlihat muda daripada umur kita yang sebenarnya. Betul gaaa? Sama aja nih kayak cewek2 di Korea.
Dan di korea, istilah "Baby Face" ini umum sekali. Di Indonesia juga ya ga sih? Haha.

And one of the Korean actress that known for her baby face looks is Shin Min Ah.

Dan salah satu artis Korea yang terkenal dengan baby facenya adalah Shin Min Ah.

Okay, here we go.

It's been my go to sunblock especially if I'm going to campus.

Probably because I didn't use sunblock before.
So, I started to use one.
To prevent skin cancer too.

[Review] Innisfree No Sebum Mineral Powder

Hello ladies.
I'm back with another review!
This time the products is.. Innisfree No Sebum Mineral Powder.
I have been loving Innisfree Products lately.
And I have read many good reviews and I think almost all k-beauty gurus and bloggers have been raved about this products.

Halo semuanya. Kali ini aku bakal bikin review lagi nih *ngejar target post gara2 sudah akhir bulan*. Produk yang bakal aku review adalah Innisfree No Sebum Mineral Powder.
Aku lagi suka- sukanya nih nyobain produk produk Innisfree. Dan ini salah satunya. Pertama pengen nyobain ini gara2 aku liat banyak banget beauty gurus sama beauty bloggers suka sama produk ini. Akhirnya penasaran dan pengen coba. 

For those who hasn't know what sebum is, sebum  responsible for keeping the skin and hair moisturized. Sebum produced by the sebaceous gland combines with cells being sloughed off within the hair follicle and "fills up" the hair follicle. When the follicle is "full," the sebum spreads over the skin surface giving the skin an oily appearance. When this process works correctly, the skin is moisturized and remains healthy.
If not enough sebum is produced, the skin is dry. On the other hand, if too much sebum is produced the skin is oily, a condition called seborrhea. If sebum gets trapped in the pores, acne can develop. (definition taken from http://dermatology.about.com/od/glossarys/g/sebum.htm)

Nah, kenapa namanya no-sebum? Pada tau ga nih apa itu sebum? Sebenernya sebum itu minyak di kulit kita, yang bikin kulit sama rambut yang ada di kulit kita sehat. Jadi, sebenernya emang sebum ini penting banget buat kulit kita supaya kulit kita lembab. Tapi.. ini bakal jadi masalah kalau produksi sebum ga cukup buat kulit kita, akibatnya kulit kita bakal kering. Nah, sebaliknya nih, kalau produksi sebum terlalu banyak, akibatnya tau lah ya, kulit kita bakal jadi kilang minyak. Dan kalau jadi kilang minyak alias kulit berminyak, maka resiko bakal jerawatan jadi gede juga.
Nah, langsung liat aja yuk produknya kayak apa.

Let's jump into the review:

[Review] MUA Undressed Palette

It's been a while since I reviewed something on my blog.
Today, I want to share my thoughts on MUA's Undressed Palette. My first palette ever! Well, it's because usually bought quad or trio.

Halloooo. Aneh ga sih kalau aku ngepostnya 2 bahasa gini? Haha.
Udah lama nih ga ngereview produk. Kali ini aku mau ngereview MUA Undressed Pallete. Tau ga? Palette ini disebut2 dupe (shadenya mirip dengan) Urban Decay Naked 1 loohh. Pada tau kan ya UD Palette. Itu loh yang terkenal haha. Harganya sih beda jauh ya. MUA ini cuma seperempat atau seperlimanya UD Naked. 

Here's the look:
I'm sorry, I took it from the MUA's website, simply because mine is broken already since the beginning.

Ini gambar produknya. Gambarnya memang aku ambil dari website official MUA nya karena palette ku sudah jelek. *dari awal udah jelek sih gara2 ada shade yang pecah saat pengiriman*

How to Sharpen Up Holika Holika Jewel Light Waterproof Eyeliner

Hi guys.
Haven't greeted you in a while.
Btw, happy fasting for those who celebrate it. Super late, but better late than never, right? Haha.

So, many of you may have confused how to sharpen up your Holika Holika Jewel Light Waterproof Eyeliner.
Some of you thought that it is automatic so you just have to roll the bottom part.
Some of you may have confused because it looks like a plastic that can't be sharpen up.
But.. Actually,
It's just an ordinary eye pencil that you can sharpen up using eyeliner sharpener.
It's quite easy to sharpen up.

Here's my Holika Holika Jewel Light Waterproof Eyeliner (I've reviewed it here):

At first, it may looks like this:
Then, it will looks like this:

So, the result...

I may have sharpen it too much. Lol.
The residue/ leftovers (or whatever it is called):
See? It's easy right?
All you need is..

Regular pencil sharpener may also work. But, make sure it is clean/ better to use if it's new. So that it wouldn't get contaminated by pencil residue.

In fact, if I'm not mistaken, now Holika Holika sells the sharpener for this jewel light pencil eyeliner.

Hope it helps.
See ya.
