Ageha Icy Grey Review

ageha circle lens review

After a week I'm finally back with another circle lens to review. This time it's Ageha in Icy grey color, it's from Japan manufactured by Dueba. I got this from Japan Softlens for only around $18 (IDR 178,000) cause they're having 34% off. I was looking for a new gray circle lens with bigger diameter and stumbled into this beautiful circle lens. Japan softlens carries some other Ageha circle lenses, Vivian circle lens, 1 day Loveil circle lens, and even Ayumi Hamasaki eyelashes! I was actually shocked to see a local store selling Ageha circle lens cause I've been dying to try it since early this year after I found it online and the price in that Europe/US online store is really ridiculous I don't think it was worth it. If you visit Japan Softlens website, you can see try classified their Ageha circle lenses into 3 categories, Lunatia series, big eyes series, and model selection series, which is the one I picked. Out of the other series, I find the Ageha Icy grey the most beautiful, not only the color but also the design that I decided to try it. But for your information, Japan Softlens circle lenses are hyped as the most comfortable circle lenses ever that you can wear up to 16 hours without having to use eye drop. 

Now let's see if it lives up to the hype.

Skin Life Foaming Facial Wash & Face Lotion Review

cow style

I'm always amazed how Japanese people's skin look so smooth and flawless. I don't know if it's Jakarta's humid weather or it's my skin but breaking out is nothing new for me. Even though I always use the same makeup routine everyday, and even I use hypoallergenic products. My biggest concern, aside of my oily T zone, is definitely my acne prone skin. Ever since my terrible breakout early this year, I've been taking care of my face really diligently every night before bed. My skin condition is getting better, but I still get acne at least once or twice a month. I really hate it when pimples show up on my nose especially. And then I was introduced to Cow Style.

COW BRAND is a long seller brand in Japan with a history of over 100 years. COW STYLE signifies daily life with peace of mind through Cow Brand products with the catch phrase "Life with Cow Brand Soap", and provides a lifestyle based on Japan quality (ease, safety, good quality) and Japan taste (material, scent, texture). One of the secrets of their quality products is the everlasting commitment to the soap-kettle saponification method, a soap-making technique that requires a lot of time and care, but rewards them with natural moisturizing factors that cannot be achieved otherwise.

They have many soap, hair products and cleansing products, but one of their well known product series is Skin Life Medicated Acne Care. I get to try two of the Skin Life products, which are its Foaming Facial Wash and Face Lotion that's especially meant for people with oily and acne prone skin. I've been using these 2 products for the past month religiously and now let me share the reviews with you.

Geo Holicat Barbie Cat Hazel Review

I know some people don't really like or can't really wear flashy colorful circle lens cause of work or school or other reasons. So today I'll be reviewing a brown lens from Geo Lens which is Holicat Barbie Cat, sponsored by Eye Candy's as review purpose. Eye Candy's is one of the largest online circle lens store. It carries varieties of circle lens brands, Instax, cosmetics, wigs and accessories. 

This Holicat series was one of the latest Geo circle lens. It's available in 5 natural but pretty colors: Barbie Cat Hazel, Cutie Cat Brown, Funky Cat Blue, Lovely Cat Choco, and Sexy Cat Gray.

Each colors have different designs, that's what make this series unique. I know some people prefer natural circle lens they can wear everyday. I must say the colors Holicat offers are different from some other Geo Lens series, and this series is especially meant for people who wants to have natural color eye that pops out. There are 3 shades of brown colors in this series: hazel, brown and chocolate. I pick the hazel one cause I've always wanted hazel eye color (my eye color is dark brown) and I've never tried wearing hazel circle lens before. Well, or I must say the hazel circle lens I had before didn't give me hazel color on my eyes. Moreover, this series seem to be inspired by cat, or cat eyes at least. You know how I love cat eye makeup right? So I was excited to try this Holicat lens. Read more to find out about this circle lens.

Lioele Dollish Veil Vita BB Cream Review

Everyone surely wants to have that smooth texturized flawless doll like skin. I sure do. But there are times especially when I just wake up in the morning and I barely have time to put much makeup to get that flawless skin without visible humongous pores and acne scars. During that crucial hour ( 7.30 am for me) I don't really want to open my eyes and have time to apply all my face products. But I was so excited to find this miraculous BB cream that has all I need, especially to shorten my daily morning routine.  Lioele is a Korean brand that's been everyone's favorites in terms of cute princessy packaging, after Etude House I guess? But they also carry a lot of really good cosmetic and skincare products. Actually this is the first time for me to try Lioele product even though I heard good things about their products. I saw mixed reviews about this BB cream, but I wasn't disappointed when I tried it. If you notice, I've been using this in most of my recent makeup tutorials.

Pond's New White Beauty Jernih Putih Merona Relaunch Event

Couple weeks ago I was invited by Pond's and Female Daily to Pond's White Beauty event at Mulia Hotel. The purpose of this event was to introduce the new formula of its White Beauty Translucent Pinkish White products. On September 25th, Pond's released their latest inovation in skin treatment. The new Pond's White Beauty Translucent Pinkish White is a skin brightening cream line that was specially formulated and designed for all skin types with natural ingredients such as Korean gingseng and saffron that's proven to brighten and beautify skin. If you're addicted to Korean dramas and variety shows, you'd know how Koreans value their gingseng that they'd want to consume ginseng drinks everyday if they could. Saffron is also known as the most expensive spice in the world. Now you know how rich the ingredients in these White Beauty products, right? But I came pretty early as I was the third beauty blogger to sign the guest book. The friendly and lovely people from Pond's then greeted me. While waiting for my friend Aullia, I constantly texted Rini who was supposed to come to the event but couldn't make it thanks to her work. 

The ballroom was decorated with white, red, and pink just like its theme: Pinkish White. And after a while I got to talk to some other beauty bloggers until Aullia came. Then we took series of pictures (a lot) before the event started. We took pictures like there was no tomorrow lol using polaroid, digital camera, and phone camera. It was like photoshoot madness. Anyway...

There are 4 new products in this new line:

1. Pond's White Beauty Translucent Pinkish White for all skin types.
2. Pond's White Beauty Translucent Pinkish White Even for Sensitive Skin. It contains green tea and it's also dermatology tested, perfect for sensitive skin. 
3. Pond's White Beauty Translucent Pinkish White Spotless for Acne Prone Skin. It contains spotless complex which was dermatology tested and very perfect for oily and acne prone skin.
4. Pond's White Beauty Translucent Pinkish White Advanced SPF 15. It is a moisturizer and sunscreen in one. 

At first, the host, Nadia Mulia opened the event with brief introduction about the products. People, well girls used to wish to have fair skintone but now we may think that to have just white or very fair skin isn't enough cause sometimes it looks pale with no color. Now many girls want to have bright, clear and fair skin but with more natural blush to achieve the popular "no makeup" look without actually applying too much makeup.

Cute & Dark Alice Halloween Makeup Tutorial

Hello girlies! Halloween is coming soon and though it might be a little early, I am going to share another makeup tutorial today. People usually dress as creepy as possible and putting creepier face painting or makeup, but for me, I would love to still have the cute doll look in any occasion. This time I was so thankful lovely people from I Love Sexy sponsored me a Halloween costume, in which I picked cute Alice in Wonderland costume. Read my I Love Sexy introduction post if you haven't cause I shared some of the cutest and fiercest Halloween & party costumes they carry. 

Anyway, there are soooo many Alice in Wonderland costumes in the store, but I think the one I picked is the cutest (and less revealing) lol. And if you're a loyal reader of Sakuranko's cute blog, you must have seen her latest post of the Alice Halloween costume she wore. Coincidentally, both of us picked the same costume to our surprise haha. It was kind of cute XD And we decided to collaborate and make an Alice makeup tutorial, in different style of course. She goes for innocent cute Alice while I go for dark Alice. Now, before I share the Alice in Wonderland costume, I'll show you how to do the makeup.
