Etude House Minnie Kissing Lips Review

etude house minnie lipstick

With the amount of requests I got for this product recently, finally I have time to sit down and work on this review. Yes, as you guys may know, a while ago Etude House collaborated with Disney (specifically Minnie Mouse) and released Etude House x Minnie collection. I know the products from this collections were sold like hot cakes. The packaging is too die for just like other Etude House products. Among the other products, this lipstick caught my eyes the most, mainly cause of the cute polkadots. But when I saw the promotional pictures, I fell in love with the Bubble Pink shade. I'm not really a pink lips person but couple of friends (coughMarxieandRinicough) convinced me I need pink lipstick (especially when taking pictures) haha I remember a while ago when taking selca with Rini, I looked as dead as a corpse cause I was wearing nude lips lol. Then Marxie reminded me day and night to get more pink puppies lippies. There are 2 shades available for this product: red and pink. I never imagine myself with red lips since the nightmare I had when I was a kid (younger me wearing red lipstick as a flower girl was horrendous I still couldn't look at that childhood photo again, not that I remember where I put that photo anyway lol). 

Actually I was so excited to get this bubble pink lipstick until I saw Rini's and was shocked when I twisted the bullet. Cause it looked hot pink instead of cute light pink like the swatch. So I was like uh okay I changed my mind. I eventually got this lipstick though XD And was even more shocked when I swatched it, I even began to hesitate and worry. I'll explain more about this in details after the jump.

Etude House Precious Mineral Any Cushion Review

etude house precious mineral any cushion review

Hello again! As promised, today I'll be reviewing Etude House Any Cushion. Air cushion products seem to be the latest beauty trend in Korea lately as almost all mainstream Korean cosmetic brands release their own cushion products, from Holika Holika, Laneige, Etude House, IOPE, Elishacoy, etc. Amore Pacific also released their CC cushion lately. BB, CC, and foundation with cushion are usually packaged in a compact with mirror, becoming girls' latest travel buddy. The quick and practical application makes cushion makeup easy to use during the day or daily activities. It doesn't take more than 5 minutes to fully apply it on the face. The air puff is usually provided as well, applying base makeup just got easier. 

This product is the first cushion makeup I have and use, so I can't say much about other brands, but I quite follow the cushion trend through other product reviews, some love it, some dislike it. But one of the most affordable cushion products in the market is obviously Etude House Any Cushion. I was introduced to this product during Etude House 5th Anniversary Event last month. It claims to be 6 in 1 multi functional foundation that gives sun protection, moisturizing, whitening, skin tone correction, wrinkle care, and oil control. I finally got to try this baby as well. So let's see if it lives up to the hype.


Etude House 5th Anniversary Event


Last October 17th (gosh that was more than a month ago!), I was invited to Etude House Indonesia 5th anniversary event which also celebrated the launching of Etude House Almight Foundation Any Cushion. It was held on Ratatouile Bistro & Bar. I was so excited to go there cause it's Etude House after all, how cute it would be? But to my disappointment, I was stuck in traffic and late to the event. And by late, I mean 1 hour late. How terrible was it? I was so anxious in the car. And I was more anxious once I reached the H Tower, on the way to Ratatouile, I could tell how crowded it was from the sounds. The moment I stepped in, yes it was full house. There were tons of people, from the media mostly, and some were bloggers. But I couldn't find an empty seat so I had to roam around and could just take pictures. It was quite dark inside though so I had no luck, until I met Sasya and before anything else, we took picture first lol. And then she directed me to a really nice empty seat in front of hers, at the very front row, kinda awkward there XD But fortunately I was able to see what was going on the stage once there. The moment I arrived (since I was super late), some beauty bloggers were having a 10 minute makeup challenge using Etude House Any Cushion and other Etude House products.


Lashious Lashes Gyaru Eyelash #158 Review


Eyelashes has been an essential part of my makeup routine. I feel my eyes bald/naked without some crazy eyelashes. There are tons of eyelashes from various brands and types, but I prefer bold and dramatic over natural looking lashes lol. If I have to pick my favorite eyelashes, compared to Dolly Wink that everybody loves and adores, I would prefer either Eyemazing or Diamond (or both), but most likely Diamond cause it's just my style lol, the Glamour Lash (グラマラス) at least. But when I go to formal events, of course I'd tone it down using less dramatic lashes. But choosing eyelashes can be tricky too, I believe pricey eyelashes supposed to have better quality than cheaper lashes. But in reality, I got less pricey eyelashes that I like more than some eyelashes from more popular and pricey brands. 

So when kind people from Lashious Lashes sponsored me a box of eyelashes and asked which one I'd like, I chose this eyelashes no. 158. They have other natural style eyelashes, but I fell in love at first sight with eyelashes #158 haha it's just so gorgeous (to me at least) and Diamond-like. Keep reading to see more of this amazingly soft and beautiful eyelashes.

Elishacoy Always Nuddy CC Cream Review


New CC creams from various brands keep coming out to the market, from IOPE, Mizon, Holika Holika, Peripera, to Chanel, Smashbox, and many more, but Elishacoy seems to be one of the first Korean brands that released their CC creams. If you read my introduction to Wishtrend, you'd know that this CC cream was on my wishlist back then, and that was several months ago. And thanks to Wishtrend, I finally got my hands on this fabulous looking CC cream. Even when I saw the promotional pictures I already fell in love, I love any cosme products in a tube, and classic white and gold, and this is it.

Elishacoy is a Korean brand, though it's may not as well known as other mainstream brands like Etude House, Tonymoly, Holika Holika,etc. but this brand has many great makeup and skincare products with pretty packaging. Some of the highly rave products are its CC cushion, Pore Solution Kit and Always Nuddy BB cream, as well as the CC cream.

The CC from this Elishacoy Always Nuddy CC cream stands for Complete Correction. When applying several layers of cosmetics in a hot and sunny day (it's always summer all year here where I live), it is easy for makeup to be heave and overlayered. Elishacoy Always Nuddy (Nudy? lol) CC cream is a light tinted product that offers hydration, wrinkle reduction, whitening, and glowing effect all at once. Healthier and clearer skin can be expected when applied continuously. This CC cream claims to be a 10 in 1 formula. Yes, ten, doesn't it sound promising? It has color encapsulated spheres that burst when it's rubbed on skin, and change color, blending into the skin. It claims to be hydrating skin with 20 skin moisture ingredients. It also gives healthy glow to the skin upon application. I always stare blankly (while drooling) whenever I see those beautiful Korean actresses with dewy glowy natural looking skin in K-dramas. Who doesn't like glowy natural skin? Well I know my skin is shiny after 6 hours, but I still want that kind of healthy glowy face too. But CC cream can be tricky for me as I have blemishes I would love to conceal cause most CC creams I know offer light coverage. But don't worry, I will show you in this post how to use CC cream, looking natural, while still covering blemishes. So keep reading :D


Kanebo Kate Super Sharp Liner S Review


I've been a religious gel liner user until I saw this product online. I've always thought gel liner was the best eyeliner for me as it's really easy to draw using brush, but then I lost the brush I got from Etude House Drawing Show Creamy Liner and had to use separate angled brush to apply the gel eyeliner which I felt quite disturbing since the brush I have is too long and not so practical for my always-on-the-go situation it barely fit inside my bulky makeup pouch. So I was looking for marker or pen eyeliner. There are too many pen eyeliner in the market from brands like Dolly Wink, NYX, Faceshop, Etude House, and many more I got confused which one I should try lol. I was looking at Kanebo products and found this Kanebo KATE Super Sharp Liner S. 

As many of you may know, Kanebo is a well known Japanese producer of cosmetics that has been around for about 125 years. They have several brands like Lunasol, Sensai, Impress, Blanchir Superior, Coffret D'or, and KATE. KATE has more urban, trendy, and cool style, targeting younger market segments. I heard good things about Kanebo KATE since some years ago and this is one of the products I try from this brand. This product comes in 3 shades, black BK-1, grey BK-2 and brown BR-1, I got the black one. And actually I didn't expect much from this pen liner cause honestly I still thought gel liner would be more convenient for me but this sharp liner prove me wrong.

Revlon Just Bitten Kissable #015 Review


Lips lips lips. Lately I always look for lip products cause I still haven't found the right pink shade lipstick that I like and suits my dry lips. This product is probably one of girls' favorite lippie as I've seen the reviews everywhere and my friend, a lip junkie, introduced this product to me some months ago. I thought the idea of jumbo lip crayon as lipstick is pretty unique. I know a lot of brands release their own lip crayon products which is great and actually a quick and accurate way to apply lipstick especially on a rush (I'm always on a rush lol). I went to try this on Revlon counter and got confused which shades should I get cause there are just too many colors! Whenever I'm out to hunt some lipstick, my hands naturally grab the nude colored ones but then Marxie's image in my head always reminds me to get pink colors. And I end up taking this pink lipstick from Revlon. 

Now let's see this product more.

Maybelline Baby Skin Pore Eraser Review


As someone with combination oil skin, I can never stand still when I find another primer that promised better oil control and pore erasing. I just had to get and try it. It irks me so much when I see oil spots ruining my nose makeup when I've been outside for several hours. So I'm always looking for any oil free primers I can find. I was looking for new primers when my Shu Uemura POREraser emptied. Instead of getting another one, I got this Maybelline Pore Eraser cause it's more affordable and I always wanted to try something new, bad habit I know. There are just too many shine control primers from different brands, from Benefit Porefessional, NYX Shine Killer, Laura Mercier Oil Free primer, and many more. Then I found this Maybelline Baby Skin Pore Eraser. I'm not that up to date to non asian cosmetic brands but Maybelline is one of the easiest drugstore brand I can get pretty easily here. Lately I've been using their Baby Lips too for my chapped lips. And I didn't know they have this Baby Skin as well. 

From what I see, this primer seems to be Benefit Porefessional's dupe. Correct me if I'm wrong. From the color, tube, packaging and function it resembles Porefessional in many ways, except for the price cause it's way cheaper. I read from some other reviews that this Pore Eraser primer isn't that much different from Benefit Porefessional and that's why I decided to try it.

Tsukiyo Soap Sayonara Acne & Kappa's Treat Review


Hello lovelies! How was your Halloween? Seems like everyone had fun going all out with crazy creative costumes I wish Halloween was big at where I live but in the spirit of Halloween I also wore cute costume on Halloween and took some photos and sent them to my boyfriend (the only think I did to celebrate it) haha. 

Anyway, I'm back with another review, it's another soap brand called Tsukiyo Soap. But I assure you this one is going to be different. Why? Cause all the soap products are vegan handmade soaps from natural ingredients. Most of the ingredients they use are olive oil, palm oil, coconut oil, goat milk, and real (not artificial extracted essence) fruits and vegetables. Their products are mainly categorized as face and body soap, and body soap (not for face). Tsukiyo Soap owners are Japanese lovers (like me!) so some of their product names are Japanese like Sayonara Acne, Hime Sama etc. But overall, most of the product names are all so cute and creative. Each soap has different functions and colors. You can see all the products and its descriptions on their facebook and etsy store

The soaps I'll be reviewing are Sayonara Acne (for acne care obviously) and Kappa's Treat (for oil control).
