Pout Post: MAC X Toledo Collection


After reading Temptalia's review on Toledo X MAC limited edition collection, I'm hooked! I need to get my paws on some of that pretty lippies. And I did! Teehee~ Although it is sooo late for this collection to arrive on MAC Indonesia's shelf, but it was here! It is crazy, because the lippies are selling out so fast. And MAC Indonesia only stock up so little, so who's fast can go home with some of them.

I ended up bought Oxblood matte lipstick, Tenor Voice matte lipstick, and Sin lipglass(because Sin matte lipstick is sold out already! GAH. I know it's in the permanent line, BUT Toledo's limited packaging is EVERYTHING! *sad face*).

Everybody seems to hate Oxblood, because it doesn't live up to its name. Oxblood in this collection is a peachy nude in colour. 

NOTE: This is my first encounter with MAC matte lipstick. My first thought is, IT IS GOOD! Now I know the hype behind MAC lipsticks. It is great product considering the price is lower than any retail lipstick that is pigmented, and fancy. Hate the flimsy plastic packaging though. But maybe that's why it is cheap(?).

Tenor Voice is the bomb from Toledo X MAC collection lippies, in my opinion. It is a cool tone red which is great to decorate warm faces, like mine. Formula wise, Tenor Voice is better than Oxblood. I dunno why, but maybe because it's red. Oxblood texture is more 'cakey' on the lips, and when layered up it tends to crack on fine lines. Tenor voice is my go to lippie if I need statement lips whenever I wanna go out, for now.

And again, this is my first time using MAC lipglass. Not bad, MAC. People always complain that MAC lipglass/gloss is too sticky. HELL NAW! It's not that bad, at least for me.

Sin lipglass is great on its own, or on top of dark lip liner. I didn't expect much from a lipgloss, so yeaaaah it's ok. Not super awesome, but just OK. It stains my lips at the end of the day.

I have another Spring collection matte red lipstick from another brand. On the next post I will do a comparison between both lippies. If you follow my Instagram/Twitter, you prolly have known what brand it is. Stay tuned, pretty readers. ^^,

SkinAqua BB Cream

Hi, beautiful people.

Time sure flies! It's JUNE already. 6 months to go to close 2015. WHOA~

Now, I'm back with another product review. 




Left: Perfect Moisture BB cream,
Right: Perfect Matte BB cream.
I am a BB cream craze since 3 years ago. It is really convenient for daily use. It contains sunscreen, moisturizer, and some of them have anti-aging/whitening agents too. Was sent the new addition to SkinAqua family skincare, Perfect Moisture BB cream, and Perfect Matte BB cream. To compare them, I applied halves of my face with each BB cream to show the differences.


Left: Perfect Matte BB cream,
Right: Perfect Moisture BB cream.
Perfect Moisture BB cream is designated for Normal - Dry skin people. But I found that it's too thick as a moisturizing cream, and not hydrating so much(if not at all). It exaggerates some dry patches, and fine lines. Has medium coverage, and will be patchy/cakey if built into higher coverage. With the heavier texture, it covers redness/blemishes nicely.




Perfect Matte BB cream is more for oily skin people. To cut off oiliness, the texture is more watery, not heavy, and gives light-medium coverage. As it's so light, it gives the perfect matte finish without looking cakey. It sinks into the fine lines though.



Overall, they are great alternative for a newcomers in drugstore range of BB cream. They are affordable as well! Rp 55.000,- for 20g of products(that is less than $5 US dollar). It won't oxidize crazily like another drugstore BB cream that turned into ashy or orange hue on the skin. It's yellow based product, it will cancel out redness, and fatigue signs that show up on the skin(paleness, or unevenness).

What I dislike from them is the smell, and they only have 1 shade for all. It will not look cute on you whose skintone are lighter, or darker than me. I am M.A.C. NC 30-35. 
SkinAqua is Rohto's babies. Like their philosophy in skincare(i.e: Hadalabo), they will not include unnecessary chems like fragrance, hence the unpleasant smell. It doesn't linger though, vanish when blended into skin. Be noted that these BB creams contain paraben. Make sure you take it off thoroughly after you're done with your day, as parabens will cause premature aging if exposed to the sun. I suggest double cleansing to make sure they are shasay away.






So, have you try them out?

Pout Post: Jeffree Star "Redrum"

Another Pout Post, another new brand to try out. I was so adventurous on lippies game last April. I bought several indie brand of lip colours. And loving it! In this Pout Post, and more to come, are some of my fave lip colour products that I personally love.



JEFFREE STAR COSMETICS
YASSS! It's the Jeffree Star's very own makeup brand. I'm very excited about this since it hasn't even launched yet. But never took the bait to buy any, because online shops in Indonesia always selling 16-20 US$ cosmetics up to Rp 350.000 - Rp 400.000(27-31 US$). I don't want to buy anything personally from overseas, because I don't want to deal with Indonesia's custom charges. So if we are about to purchase any marked up-pricing cosmetics, it's for the "dealing fee" with custom, and the overseas shipping fee. *sigh*


This Redrum is sooo gorgeous. I can't say it's a warm, or cool toned red. It has a little bit of everything. I couldn't ask for more! Jeffree Star is killing it in matte liquid lipstick's formula. It sets into matte quickly, didn't leave that sticky/tacky feel when clamped the lips together.


I immediately bought this one right after Hellua, @thelipstickmafiaaa On Instagram posted her swatch of Redrum. And watched Manny MUA on youtube reviewing this lippie, I want it even more!

The applicator is perfect to put on the liquid lipstick without outlining using lip pencil. And the amount of product that picked up on the felt tip applicator is the perfect amount to do my lips. No double coat for the lip swatch on my photos. Crazily pigmented! And long lasting!

The packaging is pretty! Clear plastic, with lipstick bullet shape, and pink rim/cap. Opaque from the very first swipe, and no chemically annoying smell. Feels so light on the lips, and no 'coating' feel (if you used the Lime Crime velvetines or LASplash Lip Couture liquid lipsticks, you'll know what I mean).


Have you heard, or try any Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipsticks?


If you're in Indonesia, you can get yours at Padusee on Instagram(click here).

Pout Post: Colourpop Matte Lippiestix

Hi, lovely readers..

I am so late get into the indie brands' lippies game. Let's kickstart it from the affordable, great colour payoff, & lovely formula.

COLOURPOP.


I've heard of this brand from many months ago, and I took the plunge, bought 2 of them last April after every fellow makeup junkies have raved about it. Teehee~
I got Lumiere & Tootsi matte Lippie Stix. 

I love the formula, so so much! It glides like dream, very pigmented, & that kind of matte which doesn't dry out the lips. It's not chalky at all, although the colours that I choose are nude/greige(grey beige). Another brand of nude/beige matte lipsticks always come off chalky & accentuates lip lines.

So surprised, as an indie brand, their lip product doesn't smell like paint or chemical. The scent is really similar to MAC matte lipsticks. It has that vanilla/cake frosting smell. But colourpop have that 'burnt frosting' hint. LOL not annoying though.

Lumiere is a colour that's created in the collaboration with beauty youtubers: Kathleen Lights. She is so cute, beautiful, & lovely. Dusty mauve pink, says Colourpop. Warm pink, with the hint of mauve, & lavender. It's a bummer! The colour on Kathleen is different from Lumiere on me. Boohoo~
“I wanted a color that both bold and shy people could wear. It's not a nude. It would look great on EVERYONE​!” - Kathleen Lights

So pinky on me. *sigh*

And I got Tootsi. On Colourpop site: cool-toned grey beige, greige, matte colour.
Oh how true that is! Colourpop describe the colour for Tootsi correctly. It's grey, it's beige, it's ON TREND. It makes my lips #OnFleek.

LOVE LOVE LOOOVE!
Tootsi Lippie Stix really makes me happy. The perfect nude matte on my skintone. People say I looked sick with this on. WHAT?! It's called GREIGE LIPS, people! 

I got them from belanjamimo.com (don't ask on the comment again, please. click here to shop for lippie stix).

So, what do you think? Lumiere, or Tootsi looks better on me?
Have you tried any Colourpop Matte Lippie Stix?
