Today i am back with a new segment on my blog. I have been thinking to perk things up with reviewing local and budget beauty stuff exclusively. And here I am today i am bringing you one of the best local eyeliners, especially if you are a beginner.
Price: 31.000 to 35.000
Content: 5 ml
Description: Waterproof liquid eyeliner to make your eyes more beautiful
It comes with only one shade, i think. And it is BLACK
These are the ingredients. It has listed alcohol as one of the ingredients, i thought it is going to make my eye teary. But no, it does not. It turns out to be well applied and the formula is eye friendly
To be honest, pixy was my first ever eyeliner brand. Back then the packaging is all pink. The eyeliner evolved with a new packaging, which i think, BETTER. I like black packaging because it is less dirty and the packaging now somehow looks classier than the previous one.
Packaging may change. Gladly the signature pen like brush is still the same! The brush is stiff with pointy ends, we called it felt tip eyeliner. This time, it is really a matter of preference, but i do like this brush better than thin brush eyeliner. It makes my life easier.
The brush was helpful for beginner me :) it helped me draw eyeliner easily. Eventhough, after 2 – 3 weeks of using the eyeliner, the felt tip started to fall apart and going blahhh –____- But hey, it is only 3 bucks anyway, buying a new one won`t be that hurt to our pocket :)
Now, let`s test it out!
1. This was when it was first applied. I waited for 10 to 15 seconds for it to dry. And the finish was a jet black color. It looks matte from afar but if i look at it real closely, it has a tad bit of glossy finish to it.
2. Now, first test :)! I rubbed it hard and this was what happened. Some of the color came off leaving a mild black stain.
So… Smudgeproof? 2,5 / 5
This eyeliner would work best for you who got double eyelids.
3. Second test.. I poured water to it, and it did not budge. Good! But as the water flowed it carried some of the pigments. It became grey water, leaving a greyish area underneath
4. Third test, i rubbed the eyeliner when wet. And.. Goodbye @__@ hehehe. Lesson learned, don`t rubbed your eyes while you are crying, your eyeliner would smudged to pieces.
Eye of The Day ~~~
And.. This is how it looks on me. Today i am using a beige colored base shadow and dark purple to contour the outer V. Simple eye make up for office lha :). I lined my eyes using PIXY and so far, it looks pretty neat.
I gave 3/5 rating to this eyeliner. This is one of a great beginner eyeliner, felt tip, good formula, good packaging, and most of all, AFFORDABLE. With those in mind, this eyeliner is worth buying.
My aunt is a big fan of Estee Lauder make up. Last time when she bought excessive collection from the brand, she got several mini size mascara and gave it to me.
I got mine in Rich black, which is a plain jet black color we all use.
- Has dry formula
- Very very expensive
- Not clumpy but doesn`t really make my lashes look voluminous
- Dries immediately after application
- Great brush! Even after the mascara is already out, i still use the brush for brushing off the clump
Found this in a local cosmetic store near my house, i wasn`t sure at first. The beauty assistant lady half pushed and forced me to buy >.<, that was why i gave it a chance.
Price: around 10.000 or $1
Amount 7 g
It comes witha white stick like this to adhere the falsies to our skin. Quite useful though it is so stiff, it hurts.
The brush is thin and stiff, allows me to apply it thinly and precisely to the falsies band. I like it. The glue has high adherence, sometimes it can be hurt to take the falsies off if i put too much glue.Good news? Yeah, it precisely hold my falsies in place until i took it off. So strong!. The formula has no odor and transparent. I love it!
Today i am gonna review a BB Cream from Holika Holika, a Korean brand. To be honest, this is my first product from Holika Holika, hehehe when the BB Cream came i was soooo excited to try it out! Now, after about two months trying, i am now ready to give you a full insight about it.
Here we go!
Holika Holika luminous silk bb cream contains SPF 42 <3 愛! Contains capsules of hyaluronic acid and ceramide to moisturize the face as well as protecting sensitive skin.
Amount: 50 ml
Price: around 120.000 rupiahs
Comes in two shades, light beige #1 and natural beige #2, mine is in #1
The postman came with a box from Korea, after a harsh unwrapping ~~ hahaha. I finally find my love, 真棒!! It comes with a clear plastic packaging with pretty lace details. but i think the plastic cover is not that safe. It breaks and dent in so many places. Gladly, it doesn`t effect the tube inside.
~Some ingredients, incase you are curious ~
Can you spot the cutesy texture and lace details? So thoughtful
It also comes with a pump dispense tube. Same like Etude House, except this one is easier to use. I love the girly packaging, but i find that the silk cloth makes the BB Cream easily dirty. Once it is dirtied, i can not just wipe it clean without leaving stains.
Holika Holika luminous silk bb cream provides sheer to medium coverage. I have less acne scars now, and only have minimum redness due to genetic case~hahaha~ seriously my sisters have this dot dot redness on their face too, i guess we inherit it from our dad 爸. Yeah, but still 我愛你, baba!
It covers pretty well, and i only have to put more concealer on the dark circles. But that`s it! Luminous Silk is blendable and buildable. The texture is thick and powdery, which i like because it gives almost matte finish! When i go for teaching and feel lazy, i just leave it that way and go. I look okay, luminous and do not feel greasy.
Luminous silk has grey undertone, which oxidise after 3 – 4 hours, and it can go as far as 6 hours if i blot them well and set it with Marcks powder. The instant brightening effect is noticeable and i love the faint baby scent it gives!
So far, i like this BB Cream. It does not beat my Etude`s bb dation and bright fit, of course. But certainly this BB Cream does not let me down, and due to its almost matte finish, this bb cream has been a great addition to my BB Cream collection!
So, that is it for today..
I am going to get more diligent on blogging now, 承諾! Hehehe..
Love you more and more,
Applying eyeshadow is quite tricky. There was time when i used to apply a shimmery white shadow to highlight my brows. Well, nothing is wrong with that, really.. But personally i feel that my eyes look like a disco ball, unnatural at all. You know, shimmery eyeshadows + shimmery highlights are way way too much to my taste.
So, i prefer matte eyeshadow for highlight and i quite like this VOV Shine Shadow
Price: around $3 at department store
Color: Soft Baby Pink #1125
I bought this several months ago, and i don`t touch it much at first because i rarely use eyeshadows on my working days. Sometimes i experience the oily lids and it makes my eyeliner last less longer. This shine shadow helps to absorbs the oil, make my eyes brighter but it doesn`t look like i am wearing eyeshadow. It has soft pink undertone that match mine. So, overall it is a good take on a daily basis
VOV Shine Shadow #1125 review
- Boring, cheap looking plastic packaging, but it is quite sturdy.
- Matte finish and not chalky.
- Affordable and available in the local department store
- Not quite long lasting and rather powdery
- Not pigmented
VOV Shine shadow is not exactly my favorite because i have found much better matte white eyeshadow as a highlighter. But, counting on how it looks so natural for everyday, i think some of us would like it.
Bye bye for now!
Love always, Hana

Thank you Starry Korea Shop!
Have you ever heard about Collection brand?
If you haven`t, it is okay :) hehehe Collection is UK brand. It has been famous before with its former name Collection 2000. Now the brand comes up with innovative products for us to try out. Just like this one right here!
The packaging is glass bottle with a black cap. Very pretty though not travel friendly. There is a mirror too, on the side, so it will come handy when we are on the go.
Also… Do you know why they name this HOTLIGHTS lipgloss? Because the lipgloss literally lights on! There are two small lamps attached to the cap. When we open, the lights will automatically on! Cincaaaa… very cool!
The applicator is jut like usual. Doe tip and quite precise :)
The lipgloss has tiny silver and gold specks in it. Though it looks overwhelming in the bottle, it applies naturally on the lips. It does not taste weird, and stays okay on the lips. Aroun 3 –4 hours if i don`t eat anything. I like to apply this only in the middle of the lips to create that infamous ullzang look.
If you ask me, why is it so sheer? Because i put a lot of nude lip concealer underneath, so the lipgloss turn to be a softer strawberry pink color.
And.. hahaha as usual my FOTD using this lipgloss. Sorry the photo did not do the justice because my took this one with my phone cam. But oh well, i personally like this lipgloss and going to give it 4/5 verdict. Dear Collection Brand, please open soon in Indonesia, okay? Hahahahaha..

Twenty minutes before my next class, so i am here writing about local product! This time, it comes from Sariayu and their quite "latest” collection Sentrajava. They have two version with peachy orange blush or the pink blush. Mine is pink.
from : google.com
- Very practical and easy to use
- Make your face glow and dewy
- Cakey and not finely milled
Do you remember Sariayu Shimmering Powder? I had one of that and mine is broken to pieces already because i dropped it >.<. So when i saw this, i was like, “ Aa, cool! Let`s try this one! Hopefully this one is better than the old one. And my verdict was wrong.
As for the packaging, it is same with the Sariayu Shimmering Powder, round cake with a clear cap. It was also glamour with a peacock and flower emboss. Mine is kinda washed out already but yeah the emboss did capture my heart.
Unlike the shimmering powder one, the powder does not have shimmer at all. But it is made in a way it can reflect lights. Same goes with the pink color. The finish is satin with medium coverage. I dont like the fact how the product seems to be a bit powdery and cakey >.< I have to build bit by bit to get correct coverage. My verdict for this powder is 3/5 and i do recommend this to you who had dry to normal skin because the powder feels quite moisturizing.

Many has raving about this BB Cream since two years ago when i just started this blog. This is a classic bb cream, famous in line with Missha BB Cream and its sister, Skinfood mushroom bb cream. I just got the chance to try it now, because at first i was so in love with Skin 79 bb creams, and then move to Etude House BB Creams.
The cream smells like aloevera, great smell that fades away after application :). It is easy to spread and to blend. The finish is dewy and it is not as sticky as foundation or other bb creams i have before. Actually at home, i ussually just use the bb cream alone and it looks good, not greasy or anything. The downside of the bbcream is oxidation. It oxidised badly on me >.< At the first two hours, it sets beautifully, but after two hours wear, my face turns to be orangey and not fresh at all.
Skinfood aloevera bb cream is buildable without look too cakey. Above i run some coverage test. In my opinion, the coverage is light to medium but we can layer it at the area that needs more coverage. You see, after three layers, the heart pen marks dissappear. As for the oil control, i would say that the oil control is not really good. Just usual, around 3 – 4 hours then the bb cream starts to fade out.
This is me using the bb cream. Can you spot orangey tone on my face? Yes, hahaha.. this one was a lucky picture because the lighting is pretty, in the real life my face looked more orange than this :P.. But yeah, it is not bad as oppa loompa though so i can tolerate it. Especially, considering how nice and comfortable to use this bb cream. All in all, i would recommend this bb cream for you who has dry skin and has no problem with oxidation.
