Milani Baked Blush

Hello everyone!

These years, makeup brands are trying to make lots of products, lots of varieties, and lots of options to the makeup game. There are a lot of drugstore products which are as good as the high end product and many people call it Dupes. It means that a product resembles a lot to other product with the cheaper price range.

Milani is one of the drugstore brands which is really good and high class quality. There are already many product reviewed by famous beauty blogger and Youtuber and lots of them love this product. They love Milani because of their cheap price but really good quality.

Today, we are talking about one of their famous product which is Milani Baked Blush.

This product claims:
Richly pigmented and highly buildable, the beautiful matte and shimmery shades of Baked Blush are the perfect cheeky pop of color for every skin tone. Sun baked on Italian terracotta tiles, the warm finish adds a radiance that is the very essence of beauty. Shape, contour and highlight your best features.

This product is the Holy Grail in the makeup market. They say that it’s really smooth and the color ranges are all pretty. I choose the shade Luminoso, which is the most favorite shade of all. Luminoso is a peachy and glowy blush that will make your face as it is naturally blush. This blush is really pretty for all skin in my opinion, but will be best in the white until yellow skin.

For me, I have quite love hate relationship with this blush. I like this blush because it gives you glow but not glittery. It makes you glow! The color is nice too, it is a nice peach and really natural in my skin. The problem is, because the shade is really natural, it is kind of hard to make the color come out. I have to work hard so that the color will show in my cheeks. In my opinion, for people who have extremely fair skin, it will be harder to make the color show in their skin. You have to apply much! It is also run out pretty quickly. The other thing, I was quite disappointed with the size. I thought that it will be a whole box but it turns out only half, because the other half is used for the mirror and the brush.

To sum up, here is my pros and cons for this product:

-           Nice peach color
-           It makes you glow! It has shimmer and not glittery
-           The color is really natural, so don’t be afraid it will look fake on you

-           The color does not really show – it means that you have to apply much
-           For extremely fair skin, I think you have to work hard to apply it so that the color will show

Name   : Milani Baked Blush [Shade: Luminoso]
Type    : Baked Powder Blush
Size     : 3.5 g / 0.12 OZ
Rate     : 7/10
Price    : IDR 135.000 / $8.49

I’m confused what to say on this product. Not that I don’t like it but I don’t love it. It gives me a glow which is really nice and the color is nice too. But the other side, I had to work hard to make the color come out. But I still recommended it because maybe others have different skin, different technique, and can make this work smoothly! J

Until next time!

Maybelline Super BB Cushion

Hello everyone!

Do you know that lately people are obsessed with makeup that gives you such a dewy and healthy-looking skin? If we take a look at 2015-2016, do you have any idea what is really happening in the makeup market? Yes, it is Highlighter & BB Cushion.

What is BB Cushion?
BB Cushion is actually kind of like BB Cream that is put into a container along with other ingredients in it. Inside the container, you have a sponge that has the bb cream inside it. I’m not sure where is this come from or created, but the thing that I know is that BB Cushion is originated from Korea (or at least I saw Korean using it for really long time) before other western brand like Maybelline, L’Oreal, and many other brand decided to create it too.

So, today we are talking about Maybelline Super BB Cushion!

This product claims:
·         SPF 29/ PA+++
·         High coverage and yet still moisturizing
·         It contains correcting minerals and moisturizing essence
·         Flawless-perfect skin look is just a tap-tap away

Aqua/Water, Methyl Trimethicone, Dimethicone, Ethylhexyl, Methoxycinnamate, Titanium Dioxide, Ethylhexyl, Salicylate, Glycerin, Butylene Glycol Dicaprylate/Dicaprate, Lauryl PEG-9 Polydimethylsiloxyethy Dimethicone, Diphenylsiloxy Phenyl Trimethicone, Pentylene Glycol, Butylene Glycol, Trisiloxane, PEG-10 Dimethicone, Magnesium Sulfate, Acrylates/Stearyl, Acrylate/Dimethycone, Methacrylate, Copolymer, Phenoxyethanol, Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Disteardimonium Hectorite, Lauroyl Lysine, Ethylhexylglycerin, Polyhydroxystearic acid, Stearic Acid, Alumina, Triethoxycapryllysilane, Letichin, Isopropyl Myristate, Isostearic Acid, Ethylexyl Palmitate, Adenosine, Polyglyceryl-3 Polyricinoleate, Disodium Edta, (+/- MAY CONTAIN, CI 77891 / Titanium Dioxide, CI 77491, CI 77492, Ci 77499 / Iron Oxides, Mica, CI 77163 / Bismuth Oxychloride)
(Sorry if there is one or two misspelled word or typo, I wrote it myself, lol *cry*)

Actually when I first bought it, I never heard any news or any makeup review about this. I was in the mall and I looked for a nice foundation because it has been a long time since I bought one. Then, I saw this beautiful packaging sit nicely in the display. At first, I was unsure to buy that since it is not that cheap, but I decided to give it a try since I read Glycerin is on the ingredient. Basically, Glycerin is something that will give your skin such a hydrated look and moist feeling. It will stick into your face and it will last long on your face. If I have to say one of the famous brands that have Glycerin in it is Nivea After Shave Balm. If you all familiar with it, it was booming because one of Beauty Guru, NikkieTutorial used it. It has Glycerin in it that makes your face look dewy and it will stick into your face like glue.

Anyway, back to topic, my skin is combination type. It is dry around my mouth and cheeks but it is oily around my T-Zone. I decided to buy it because I have been curious with BB Cushion.  When I opened it up, I was amazed by the beautiful packaging.

It has the silver packaging with the white under it. I don’t know, it looks really elegant, isn’t it? When I opened it up, I just cannot say anything hahaha. It is beautiful!

I don’t know why lol maybe I have some of mental obsession to the makeup. I just amazed on the beauty of their packaging, their product inside, I don’t know, don’t ask me about it. It.is.just.stunning!

Anyway, I got shade number 2 which is Light. I guess it only has 2 shades which are Light and Natural. 

After a little war with myself because I don’t want to ruin the beautiful packaging, I decided to use it. When I first applied it, I was amazed on their high coverage! Well, maybe it’s not like super high coverage but it hides my dark circle and blemishes super well. I like the feeling of putting it in using the sponge that they gives because it just soft and glides smoothly.

This is my face before use any of the BB Cushion. You can see I have lots of redness going on in my cheeks.

It is the result after using it. Yes, you can still see some redness in my cheeks but it covers pretty well. The dark circle under my eyes covered pretty well too, I must say that this Bb Cushion covers my under eye better than my concealer. 

I’m not sure you can see it or not, but the finishing of this cushion is really dewy. You can see your face is glowing and looking healthy. For super dry skin people, or someone who like dewy finish, you can just go with it without setting it with powder, it will be wonderful! But if you are someone like me, who doesn’t like feeling oily and sticky, then you can set it with powder. I can say that both are working beautiful and amazing too. I can say that this product is good for both of the skin type.

Then, this is my face after powder, bronzer, blush, and highlighter and all of that stuff. I can say that I am really impressed and happy with this product. It is a bit pricey (at least for me) but this works beautiful and nice!

Inside the Cushion you will get a sponge kind of powder sponge inside it. At first I thought I would not like it because it looks like ordinary powder sponge. But it is not! It works really great and it can give you what the product should do. It gives you high coverage with the dewy finish. I tried to use brush to apply it, but it does not give you such a coverage that this product can gives you. I tried to use Beauty Blender/Beauty Sponge, but still, it works better than the brush but the sponge that comes in packaging can gives you the best result of all. It is my first time to love a sponge that comes in the packaging. This sponge is magic!

Name   : Maybelline Super BB Cushion (02 LIGHT)
Type    : BB Cushion
Size     : 14 gr
Rate     : 10/10, I freaking love this product!
Price    : IDR 230.000 (Sorry but I could not give you any price rate other than Indonesian Rupiah because I couldn’t find it everywhere! I even looked up into the Maybelline’s sites but I couldn’t find the product.) *cries*

Overall, I’m really impressed and love this product! I will definitely repurchase it! I’m also interested to try other BB Cushion especially Korean BB Cushion. Any recommendation? Please tell me down below!

Until next time!

Evian Facial Spray Review

Hi angels,
Summer is finally here and we need a lot of products to keep our skin hydrated right? Summer in Indonesia is really crazy and hot plus with the traffic jam everywhere, hectic life, and lots of things make me really want to disappear from the world a bit. But, we can’t do that right? So, let’s just face it!

Talking about summer, in Indonesia, the highest that it can get mostly 33-34 Celsius. I heard that it can get crazier in other country. Some people said it can get until 40 Celsius. I have a friend from Netherlands, he said that he can bear the heat rather than the cold. I said the opposite from him, I can bear the cold but not the heat. It’s because my country does not have winter season while in his country does. I guess human never can be satisfied hahaha.

If the weather gets really hot, I bet all people will feel uncomfortable. I cannot live without air conditioner and I cannot bear the heat. Every time I went outside when it gets super-hot, my face will turn red and obviously it’s not cute at all. So, I will talk about a product that can help your face calm a bit after getting on the sun too much.

“Evian Natural Mineral Water”

Used daily all year around, Evian Facial Spray hydrates your skin, helps fix your make-up, freshens and purifies.

Spray Evian Facial Spray on skin several times a day. Leave for a few minutes then gently dab.

This spray is everything. Actually, I feel that this spray it’s just like a water without any ingredients in it but that what makes it great! Just imagine whenever you feel your face burning or hot then you can simply spray it and it can make you feel fresh again, just like you wash your face in the morning!

The other thing that I can do with it is when my face feels oily. Whenever I feel my face becomes oily and greasy, I spray this into my face and just let it sit for a few minutes. Then, it will clear away all your oil and the greasy feeling and leaving your face feeling moist.

This product can be used before and after makeup but actually I rarely use it for that purpose. It’s because this spray makes your face really wet and I feel that it can make your makeup transfers everywhere. But a lot of people use it to set their makeup, so the only advice I can give is to spray it in a good amount (not too much) and do not dab it with tissue or anything when it is still wet. Just let it sit and absorbs to your skin by itself.

Because it feels just like water and nothing in it (my own thinking of course), it does not give you kind of moisturizer or skin product in it. It just makes your skin feel hydrated and nice. Evian itself is famous for the mineral water line, so, don’t doubt the quality of their water!


Hold the bottle a bit far away from your face and spray it in a good amount just as your desire. The spray in this is bottle is the best of all. When it sprayed into your face, it feels like it cover your face with a gentle spray. I know, you probably thinking, what are you trying to say? I can’t find a word for it! Just try it yourself and feel the happiness :p

Name   : Evian Facial Spray
Type    : Facial spray
Size     : 300 ml
Rate     : 10/10
Price    : Rp 150.000 (if they have discount) and Rp 199.000 in normal price. / $15-20

It will never hurt to have one and put it in your bag! Just spray it every time it gets hot and you will get a nice feeling without even need to wash yourself up! ;)

Until next time,

Innisfree Green Tea Mist Review

Hey hey! Welcome back again with reviewing beauty products! As you all know with the summer is already start, we need something to hydrate and keep our face dewy and healthy, right? Anyway, talking about summer, don't you think the weather in Indonesia is really mixed up? I mean, we are supposed to have summer, but it keeps raining all day! But the thing that I like, it is raining but it's not heavy raining which is pretty good! We have a nice, cool, and good weather this time! Oh, I hope it stays forever. 

Sorry for mumbling all around! Because the weather supposed to be summer, just pretend it's summer okay? Hahahaha. For today, I want to review one of my facial spray that I do really love and obsessed 

So, let's begin, shall we?

Innisfree Green Tea Mineral Mist

 "This facial mist is formulated with moisture from our freshly squeezed green tea to instantly deliver moisture to your thirsty skin."

 This product claims:

Enriched with squeezed green tea and green complex from the pure Jeju Island to deliver abundant moisture and nourishment deep into your skin

Whenever your skin feels dry, spray onto face with your eyes closed. It can be applied before and after makeup.

Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Calcium Chloride, Magnesium Sulfate, Camella Japonica Leaf Extract, Orchid Extract, Opunita Coccinellifera Fruit Extract, Citrus Unshiu Peel Extract, Betaine, Dl-Pantheniol, Propanediol, 1,2-Hexanediol, Bis-Peg-18 Methyl Ether Dimethyl Silane, Peg-60 Hydronated Castor Oil, Disodium Edta, Phenoxyethanol, Fragrance

Innisfree is a Korean makeup product which is really popular among Koreans and other country too. Many good reviews for this makeup product because it is not only that they are affordable but also their product is really great.

Innisfree is famous with their facial mask and also facial treatment. Many people said that their facial treatment is really working especially their Green Tea Series. There are lots of good products from their Green Tea Series and this one is one of their great product too.

If you read some of my older post, you know that my face has been really dry and cracked up. Whenever I washed my face, I always feel that my skin tighten up and it feels really dry. I tried some products and it does heal my face. Then, I purchased this because it is a mist and I thought it will be really helpful and it is! So, after I washed my face, I would put my moisturizer and tap it gently then after that I sprayed this mist to my face. It does really help me to get a nice dewy skin.

Can we use this alone?
Definitely. When my face was not really dry anymore, I skipped my moisturizer and just spray this mist instead. It gives me a healthy dewy skin! 

Because my face is basically combination - oily in T-zone and dry in the cheeks- when I used this when my face was not really dry, after 4 hours or so, I started feeling greasy and oily because this  mist is really gives you that hydrated and dewy finish which is a good thing! So, for you dry-skin people outside, use this mist! I bet you will really like it. I read in one of the blog in Pinterest, some people said that it is a dupe for Tatcha Dewy Skin Mist which is a crazy expensive and really popular because it hydrates our faces really well. 


Hold the bottle approx 20cm away from your face and spray a generous amount into your face. You can use it before and after makeup or both, or use this alone for treatment.

The spray itself it's really good and nice that makes you can spray it nicely. Some of makeup spray has a bad spray which makes the water (or whatever) thing inside spray roughly and it will only makes your face wet, like real wet. We don't want that, do we?

But the spray in this bottle is really fine and you can set it yourself on how much the product that you want to use into your face. 


Name  : Innisfree Green Tea Mist
Type    : Facial spray/Makeup spray
Size     : 50 ml
Rate    : 8/10
Price   : Rp 65.000 / $6 / KRW 6.000

So, what do you think? The only thing I regret purchasing this product is only because I did not purchase the big bottle! I thought that I wanted to just try this product but now I regret it with all my heart, why the @#$? I did not purchase a big one?

Until next time!
