Elf Makeup Mist & Set

Hey everyone!

I have been super neglected my blog that if I were a parent, I will be in the prison already. But I have been super lazy and busy with my life that made me didn’t want to write for my blog at all. I feel that if I didn’t feel to write then I will not write because I feel that it will affect on what I write.

Anyway, today I’m back at reviewing product and I want to review a setting spray from Elf. Actually, this is pretty old product and I have owned this for about a year or so. Spoiler alert, I LOVE this product! Let’s jump to the review, shall we?



Packaging
Let’s judge it from the very first thing that people judge from other people. The packaging. The bottle is plastic with a spray on the top. Let’s go to the thing that people hate the most. The spray. Let’s be honest, this product is known for having the worst spray ever. It squirts very hard in your face that will make your face wet rather than luminous. It does not have a fine spray like other spray have. People say that you need to put it far away to get a good amount of spray. Well, it does work but still sucks tho. Just saying. Or other option, you need to change the bottle. So, you buy another empty bottle and put Elf Makeup Mist in there. Problem solved.



Review
I love this product tho even though I hate the spray. I think that this mist sets and locks my makeup. It does make my makeup becomes long-lasting. I don’t feel oily whenever I use this and I feel that my makeup is still good in the end of the day.
Does it worth the difficulties of the bottle?
It does worth. Even though their spray is sucks and you have troublesome yourself by changing the bottle, it does worth for you. With a super affordable price, I think this is the best setting spray I have ever tried for drugstore.

Pros
It sets my makeup
It makes me matte all day
It makes my makeup becomes even better
It’s affordable

Cons
The spray sucks. Just it.

Details
Name   : Elf Makeup Mist & Set
Type    : Setting Spray
Size     : 2.02 floz / 60ml
Rate     : 9/10
Price    : IDR 90.000 / $3

Conclusion
Overall, I love the product. Aside from all the trouble, I still love this product and probably will repurchase. Why probably? Because I still want to try another setting spray. Nowadays, all makeup products release setting spray which means a lot more affordable setting spray!

Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid

Hey everyone!

I can’t ever get enough of lipstick – especially liquid lipstick. There’s no limitation on it, there’s nothing such as ‘I have enough makeup’ because enough is never enough #swag #nope. I have tons of lipstick because I’m such a fool and I have no self-control…and I hate myself. Just kidding, I love makeup.


Recently (or recently in Indonesia), Maybelline came out with a new liquid lipstick called Vivid Matte Liquid. Actually I wasn’t planning in buying it, but because it was a free (which was buy 2 get 1), I purchased it. I have such a mixed feeling about this – let’s check it out.

Packaging
The packaging is beautiful. The black cap complements well with the rest of the packaging. In the bottom of the packaging, the shape is like the shape of a lipstick which is kind of cute. The applicator is as always – doe foot applicator. I don’t find any problem with the applicator which is good too. After I did some research, I just knew that this is the same product as velvet matte lipstick like the one in the US. Asian version has a different packaging as the US but they are the same product! Here are the differences.


US Version


Asian Version

Shades
I’m on the shade Mat 12. I guess they only have numbers and not name on it. The color is kind of nude-brown color which is totally my kind of color. It’s wearable for everyday and natural makeup. I think it’s also perfect on every skin tone because the color is just a basic color.


Review
I have kind of mixed feelings with this product. I know they said it’s vivid which is the kind of velvet, but they claimed it to be matte liquid which I don’t find it true. When I purchased it, I knew that it will be kind of satin liquid lipstick which is creamy, transfer, and not really long-lasting. But surprisingly, it’s not satin yet it’s also not matte. Do you know what I mean? It’s in the middle of satin and matte. Because when you applied it, it does not set as satin (creamy) yet it doesn’t set as matte (dry). It’s just in the between creamy and matte which is kind of confusing, huh? Lol. It felt as if it’s trying to be matte but it doesn’t reach in the matte ‘category’. It does transfer but it’s not too satin as I expected.

Okay, let’s just narrow it down, shall we?

Pros:
I love the finish which is not too satin.
It does not crack or drying your lips
Color is really pretty. They have quite big range of colors.

Cons:
It transfers, which is annoying to me. But it does not say it will not transfer, so…
You feel like you’re wearing lipstick


Details
Name   : Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid
Type    : Matte Lip Cream
Size     : 5.0 ml
Rate     : 6/10
Price    : IDR 89.000 or 99.000 – sorry I forgot, but in the web it’s $7.99

Conclusion
Overall, I don’t feel anything special with this product. I mean it’s not bad, but it’s not special either. I feel that there are tons of liquid lipsticks that just the same as this one and I feel that Maybelline lipsticks are all the same texture as this one. But it’s cheap, it does not hurt at all if you want to have this. It’s also travel-friendly because it’s small which makes you easier to re-touch.

Thank you for reading!

Kathleen Lights X Ofra - Miami Fever

Hey everyone!


Because of the popularity of liquid lipstick, brands on the market are in competition to create lots of beautiful liquid lipsticks for people to try. Many of them are trying to do collaboration with makeup youtubers because makeup/beauty gurus on the internet are really happening right now. One of the most influential beauty guru, Kathleen Lights, did collaboration with Ofra. She created a beautiful – most stunning liquid lipstick that I have ever seen. And I’m not being too much you guys – I tell you. Let’s read more to find out! :p


Packaging
The packaging is gorgeous – yes indeed, but colourpop packaging stills a winner in my heart lol. I love colourpop packaging so much even though lots of liquid lipsticks are using that kind of packaging right now. The applicator is a doe foot applicator – like any other liquid lipstick, and I don’t find any problem or weirdness on it – so it’s cool!


Shades
Miami Fever is the first shade that Kathleen created with Ofra and it is stunning! To be honest, I have never liked or interested in the “cool” tone or bright-colored lipstick. But in my opinion, this shade is so unique! It is red but has kind of orange tone on it. The first time I saw it, I was like omg omg omg I need to buy that! But I was hesitating because A). No one sell it in Indonesia and I have to ship it to get it here which is a big no for me because the shipping will be sooo pricey. B). I don’t really like bright colors. C). I have never tried or heard Ofra before, and many other considerations that probably you won’t care about lol.

But when it’s finally came in Indonesia which a.k.a an online shop sells it, I purchased it and I’m not regretting it at all. I should’ve purchased it earlier because it’s so gooood you guys. The color suits me well and it’s just really pretty! I died <3


Review:
Pros:
Long-lasting – like super
Color is stunning!! Beautiful. I love you Kath & Ofra, for creating such an awesome color.
Not cracking. Really comfortable
Pigmented <3

Cons:
It’s quite hard to apply because it’s kind of thick. You have to be really precise.
It’s difficult to remove. Actually a good news because it’s long-lasting. But if you make a mistake, it will be a hell difficult to remove / if you want to change color, it will be a bit harder.

Details:
Name   : Ofra X Kathleen Lights [Shades: Miami Fever]
Type    : Liquid Lipstick
Size     : 6g
Rate     : 9/10
Price    : $19.90

Conclusion
For me, I really like it! It has a unique color in my opinion and I never had before. The texture is nice and comfortable. It’s not cracking even though it’s a liquid lipstick. The only difficulty is that it’s hard to remove which means you can’t make mistake. Other than that, I really love this product and will try to check out other shades. It’s really beautiful!

Until next time,
xoxo,
Jess.

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream

Hey everyone!

If we are talking about Matte Lip Cream, the first thing that pops into my mind is the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream. Nope, this is not a sponsor but it's true that this matte lip cream is phenomenal all around the world although nowadays it's not as hyped as before but still this matte lip cream stays on the special place on people's heart #LOL

Packaging
I think that the packaging of this product is quite unique. I have never seen other lip product with the packaging like this. I mean, if you were looking the packaging from far away, you'll definitely know that this is Nyx matte Lip Cream :p I'm not really fan of the packaging but if it's unique, it's great!



Shades
Well... let's not talk about this because they have a huge like really HUGE choices of shades. I think if all people from different skin tones combined, they will still be able to find their shades on this product. Lol, I mean that all people should be able to find their right shades because their choices are great.
I have tried 2 shades from this product. It might be not much because if I already feel comfortable on something whether it is a shade or product, I will stick to them until I die. Lol kidding I changed my mind like mad girl though.
Anyway, I have shade Zurich and Stockholm. Zurich is kind of pink and brighter shade than Stockholm. Stockholm is warmer and have a nude and neutral color on it. I think most of skin tones will match perfectly on this shade.



Review
Pros:
Not drying, cracking, or hurting your lips
Long-lasting, it does still transfer but it does not fade away quickly
Smooth application. It's really creamy when you first apply it which is why you need to wait until it gets dry and becomes matte on your lips.
Great color selection. No need to say about this. NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream, you rock!
Nice smell. It has sweet and soft smell on it.
Great price. It's such a good deal and price!!
Cruelty free!

Cons:
Umm... anyone?

Details:
Name   : NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream
Type    : Matte Lip Cream
Size     : 0.27 fl. oz / 8ml
Rate     : 11/10. Yes, fuck rules and it's great.
Price    : $6.00

Conclusion:
Probably you can tell from my blank cons. THIS IS A SUPERB PRODUCT. YES IT NEEDS TO BE IN A CAPITAL BECAUSE IT IS THAT GOOD. Okay calm down. I really love this product and I think that all creatures in the world should wear it. Yes, animals and plants too if they can. For people who haven’t tried it, try it! You won't regret it.

Until next time.

Wardah Exclusive Matte Lip Cream

Hey everyone!


We are back at reviewing more about Indonesian product! I think nowadays professions such as youtuber and vloggers are getting more popular here, people are starting to start their channel on YouTube. Most of the girls here are opening their channel for makeup which makes markets for the makeup here are getting more and more popular. I think that the quality of makeup in Indonesia has improved. I'm not saying that Indonesian products are bad, they are just not as good as famous makeup brand in the world. But I feel that right now, they are getting better and can be as good as other famous makeup brands too. I think that people outside Indonesia should know about Indonesian makeup product too because they are getting so much better!

Packaging
This matte lip cream from Wardah is phenomenal right now in Indonesia. Can we talk about the packaging first? It looks really expensive and awesome. Well, it's really similar to Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip, they might inspired from or it or whatever but it's good anyway. However, the applicator is a bit different though. They are both are doe foot applicator but the Wardah one is not as bent as the Colourpop one. But they are both applied nicely on the lips.




Shades
I bought this on the first launch of this product. There were no much shades to pick because they only released 6 shades but actually only 3 shades available on the market. I don't know, it's weird. I only bought 1 because I don't like the other 2 shades which I don't know the name too... I guess it was 01 Red-dicted, 02 Fuschionately, and 05 Speachless. I bought the number 05 because it was the most attractive shades for me and which also has a cute name. It has the peachy pink color and that is why the named it S-peach-less. I don't know why but it was a genius one in my opinion lol I'm so weird.
Unfortunately, I don't like this color because it was too bright on my liking. But then I tried to mix it with Nyx Lip Cream on the shade Stockholm and it works beautifully! It changed a bit of its texture too which surprisingly makes it even better.


Review
Well, let's get into the point on what I think about this product~

Pros:
Pretty and high class packaging
The colors are pretty (after they launch more shades)
It dries matte (as what they claim to be)

Cons:
Cracking. I know that maybe 90% liquid lip will give this kind of effect especially if you have a dry lips. But I think that it gives a very dry feeling that makes my lip cracked and the color becomes ugly too. For a tip if you really want to use this, make sure to moisturize your lips first before put it.

Color does not blend well. It needs LOTS of layer to get a good color pay off. The color does not blend well in my opinion.

The smell it's too chemical. If you are sensitive to a smell, please keep this in mind. The smell does not stay though, but when you put it you will smell a strong chemical scent on your lips.


Details
Name   : Wardah Exclusive Matte Lip Cream
Type    : Liquid lipstick / Matte Lip Cream
Size     : 4g
Rate     : 4/10
Price    : IDR 59.000

Conclusion
Sadly to say, this Matte Lip Cream is not my favorite. They are not a bad product though, but I just prefer other liquid lip to go with because it's too dry on my lips and does not have a good staying power too. It transfers and not long-lasting on me. But every product is different on every people and based on review that I read and heard, this lip product suits them well and there are lots of positive reviews about it. So, don't hesitate to try!

Until next time.

Pixy Pure Finish Compact Powder

Hey lovelies!


To be honest, I haven’t found a super super good powder that makes my skin super flawless. But, there are some products that I like because it keeps my face matte without making it dry. I am also beyond happy because that product is from my own country, Indonesia. Not because the sense of nationalism or anything, but if it came from my country, it must be cheaper than brands outside Indonesia. HAHAHA. #EvilLaugh



Today I want to talk about Pixy. Not Pixi. It’s Pixy. The product is made in Indonesia but licensed by Mandom Corporation Japan. To be honest (for the thousand times), I purchased this because the packaging is super cute! The packaging is pink with white lace. I did not expect much because it is an Indonesian brand. Again, I’m not being shit or anything to my own country but products that came from my country always look bad on me. Sometimes it can be unblended, make me dry, make me oily, and many more.

That is why I’m super excited that this powder works for me! :)

This product claims:
-  SPF 25 & PA +++, optimal protection towards UVB and UVA rays
- Matte lucent powder
 Non comedogenic – clinically tested
 Natural Whitening Extract & Derivat Vitamin C, as whitening agent


In my opinion, this powder is great for daily use. It does not give me any coverage or make my skin whiter but it makes my skin smoother. The most important thing, it gives me a matte finish look without making it dry.

To sum up, my opinions

Pros:
-  Great everyday powder
- Matte finish look without making it cakey
- Super pretty and princess like packaging
- Super cheap and affordable

Cons:
It does not smell really good at first but it will disappear
- Light coverage, you have to apply more :)





Details:
Name   : Pixy Pure Finish Compact Powder [Shade: Pink Beige]
Type    : Compact powder
Size     : 11g
Rate     : 8/10
Price    : IDR 35.000

Overall, I’m happy because I can find a good powder for me! It’s also available everywhere which makes me happier. It is also last super long. I have been using this almost 1 year but I still haven’t hit the pan at all! :D

Until next time!

Xoxo,

Jess.
