BB Cream and CC Cream Swatches Part 1

Well, this time I will share about swatches of my bb cream and cc cream collection.
I love to read reviews of products that I will buy.
Especially when it comes to buying online.
I have to search swatches of the products so that I can order the right shade.
Do you do the same?
So I thought, why not I share my collection of face products swatches?
So here they are.

On this post, there are only 3 type of bb cream and 1 type of cc cream.
And all of them is Korean products ~
2 from Etude House and they are Etude House Precious Mineral BB Cream Cotton Fit in N02 Light Beige and Etude House Precious Mineral BB Cream Bright Fit in w13 Natural Beige.
Both of them has SPF 30 PA ++.
I have reviewed the Cotton Fit one in w13 here.
The other one is from Skinfood and it is Aloe Sun BB Cream #1 Radiant. I also reviewed that a long long time ago here.
It has SPF 20 PA ++.
I remember that this one is the first BB cream that I have tried in my life. Haha.
And I purchased the full size of this on my trip to Korea last year. Read my haul here.
The last is CC Cream from The Face Shop and it is Face It Aura CC Cream in #2 Natural Beige. I reviewed here.
It has SPF 30 PA ++.

My Top 5 Favorite Korean Beauty Guru (Youtube)

Hello girls.
Who else love watching makeup tutorial on Youtube? Apparently, I did.
So I want to share my top favorite beauty guru.
Since I love about Korean makeup, I will post about Korean Beauty Guru first.
1. Pony Beauty Diary (
Who doesn't know Pony? She is one of the famous ulzzang and makeup artist from Korea. She is also writing books about makeup tutorial. Her real name is Park Hye Min. I love her makeup tutorial. I also read her blog but I don't understand a single thing because it is written in korean. But what I love from her channel is.. they have english sub even thou she talks in korean.
Her makeup tutorial suits for teenage or people in their 20s. So I really like it.

2. Beautifymeeh (
The second that I like is Angel from beautifymeeh. She is also a Korean who lives in States. I really love watching her videos. The tutorial is easy to understand and the review of makeup products is very clear. I have been her subscriber for years now. She is also has a beauty blog.
Her makeup tutorial suits for teenage or people in their 20-30s.

3. Meejmuse (
She is also a Korean who used to live in Australia. But she recently moved to Korea with her husband. Haha. I always watch her videos. Her channel is not only focusing on Korean products, but also other products as well. But since she moves to Korea, I expect she will do more of Korean products later. She is also very kind. She added me back on G+ when I added her blog. I love her.

4. Sunnydahye (
I love her videos. Her channel is mainly focused on korean beauty. She is also reviewing korean beauty products. She used to live in Indonesia but recently she moved to the States to study. I love watching her makeup tutorial. It is easy to follow and always looks cute.
Her tutorial would suit for the one in their 20s.

5. Jen (
I know she is a korean, but her beauty channel isn't dedicated to only korean beauty products. She lives in the States and she is reviewing many varieties of products. She also has a blog and makes beauty tutorial. Her tutorial is very clear and I somehow love her voice. I mean it is so clear and makes it really great when she filming her videos.

I subscribed to many other beauty gurus. Maybe I will post another 5 or another type of beauty gurus.

Siapa yang suka nontonin makeup tutorial di Youtube?
Aku suka banget nontonin makeup tutorial. Biasanya adekku juga suka ikutan aku nontonin makeup tutorial. Dan sekarang dia jadi subscribe ke beauty guru di Youtube juga deh. Haha.
Trus biasanya kalau aku nonton 1 beauty guru, dia bakal langsung subscribe juga ke beauty guru yang aku tonton.
Nah, makannya nih aku mau share ke kalian beauty guru favorit aku di Youtube.
Siapa tau bisa jadi rekomendasi kalian buat nonton makeup tutorial.
Karena aku suka banget sama Korean makeup, maka post kali ini bakalan tentang 5 korean beauty guru ya.
Mungkin kalo ada kesempatan lain kali aku bakal ngepost tentang beauty guru yang lain.
1. Pony Beauty Diary (
Siapa sih yang ga kenal Pony? Nama aslinya Park Hye Min. Dia terkenal sebagai salah satu ulzzangnya Korea. Trus dia juga makeup artist dan penulis buku tentang makeup. Bukunya udah jadi best seller dimana2 loh. Aku sendiri sih belom punya bukunya. Mungkin siapa tau ada yang mau beliin gitu :p haha. Aku suka banget sama makeup tutorialnya. Gampang diikutin. Dia juga punya blog tapi dalam bahasa Korea yang sama sekali aku ga ngerti. Eits tapi jangan salah walaupun di video Youtube dia ngomong pake bahasa Korea, ada subtitle bahasa Inggrisnya. Jadi gampang dimengerti.
Menurutku, style makeupnya bakal cocok banget sama umur 20an.

2. Beautifymeeh (
Aku juga suka channelnya Angel dari beautifymeeh. Dia juga punya beauty blog. Aku suka banget nonton tutorialnya dia. Product nya ga terbatas sama produk korea aja sih. Tapi dia lumayan sering ngereview produk Korea. Makeup tutorialnya cocok untuk umur 20-30an.

3. Meejmuse (
Nah beauty guru satu ini juga dari Korea. Aku juga suka sama tutorialnya. Dia baru2 ini pindah ke Korea. Jadi penasaran sama video2 dia selanjutnya. Pasti bakalan banyak produk korea yang di review dan di pake.

4. Sunnydahye (
Kalo beauty youtuber yang cocok untuk usia 20an. Dia tadinya tinggal di Indonesia loh. Tapi lagi belajar di States sekarang. Aku suka banget sama makeup tutorialnya. Gampang diikutin dan selalu terlihat cute.

5. Jen (
Nah Jen ini juga korean. Tapi dia ga hanya ngereview tentang korean product aja. Dia selalu ngereview banyak macam produk. Rekomended deh. Aku suka banget liat tutorialnya. Suaranya jelas, gambarnya jelas, trus gampang dimengerti. Dia juga pernah bikin makeup tutorial tentang kpop2 gitu.

Nah, semoga membantu ya jadi referensi beauty guru kalian di Youtube.

See you on my next post.

[Review] Missha The Style 3D Mascara

Today I want to share my thoughts on Missha The Style 3D Mascara.
It is actually my first time reviewing mascara since I am not using mascara that often. Means that I am not using mascara on my daily basis. I just use it for makeup play or special occasion.

Okay, back to the review. I am not sure if this Mascara is famous or not. I got it when it was on sale, so I thought why not giving it a try.

Here's the packaging looks like:

[Review] The Face Shop Face It Aura CC Cream

Hello everyone!
Hello February! Can't imagine we already on our 2nd month of 2014!
Seems like new year just came yesterday!

My holiday is almost over *sad*
It means I may not blog as often as January.
But please bare with it. I will try my best to update my blog.

Okay, today I want to share my thoughts on
The Face Shop Aura CC Cream.
 I hope it is not too late to join the hype of cc cream because it is so last year. Haha.
Cc cream was launched back then in 2013, many korean brands come up with cc cream. CC cream it self stands for various meaning such as color control, color correction, correct and care, etc.
For Etude House, they come with Correct and Care (CC Cream), but The Face Shop come with Color Control.
And now many US Brands and other brands are also come up with CC Cream product.

CC Cream claims to have more skincare ingredients to the product than BB Cream. So that is why the CC Cream may feel lighter when applied than bb cream. Some of the cc cream in fact doesn't has any coverage at all. But CC Cream is still a makeup. So you have to clean it like you applied any makeup.

Here's the Face Shop CC Cream looks like:
