Japanese Make-up Haul


Finally, I bought my wish-list make-up since my Teenager era: Japanese make-up products! KATE Kanebo? You name it! Majolica Majorca? Another wish-list! Can I say that these products are my birthday gifts for myself?

Japanese make-up is widely known for its sheer, shimmering and long-lasting formula. Let's say, they love to launch soft color rather than bold one; good choice for those who love all that glitter and soft color. Too bad that not so many brands are available in Indonesia, you can only find Lunasol, Kanebo, Dolly Wink, etc in several shopping center. For other brands such as KATE Kanebo, Malaysia or Singapore is your nearest counter :( or you can Pre-order or buy ready stock products from online store. I bought mine from Miaw Lens; I'm not affiliated with them, just wanna share my experience buying J-Haul online with you :) If you are wondering about which brand to look for, I'll list-down the list:

♥ KATE by Kanebo (Top list~!)
What do you think? Tell me your comment or experience buying Japanese cosmetics, can't wait to hear it~!

MAJOLICA MAJORCA: Majolook Magic~!

Dear ladies, is there anybody who loves Japanese make-up like I do? Who doesn't love shimmering formula of Japanese make-up for its captivating look? Who do believe in the magic of make-up? Then, Welcome to the magic world of Majolica Majorca :)

Their Latest Collection: 「Fantastic Fantasy」
Finally I bought the most interactive product (for it's glamorous & princess-y look): MAJOLICA MAJORCA. A glance of intermezzo, Majolica Majorca (Majo) is a sub-brand from the Japanese giant make-up company, Shiseido. Their main ideas are Whimsical, Girly & Princess-y make-up products. Lots of lace, ribbon, jewel-tone color and swirl graphics, yet their formula is not as 'girly' as its packaging. Their most famous product is The Lash King Mascara with its fiber formula to lengthen and thicken your eye lashes ;) *wink wink*

Nevertheless, their eye shadow series is the one who win my heart  <3  Its glittery, shimmering, creamy color is sooo tempting~! I love to get sparkly formula on my lids to pop-out my tired eyes. My first reviewed product from Majo is Majolook Eyeshadow (Illuminator) in BR799. This eyeshadow along with Jeweling Eyes are my first Japanese Make-up product. One word to describe it: Gorgeous~! 


PACKAGING : Tempting. >.< Their packaging always come with a whimsical and psychedelic feeling. The outer box made from transparent plastic case with description and how-to-apply instruction in Japanese (sorry, No English description available). Even though, it's a drug store brand, but they successfully make it into high-end product! Lovely! The only addition is a 2-tip eyeshadow sponge. Overall, I love the transparant and milky-white (at the back side) combination of the packaging, suitable with the girly-sweet theme.

TEXTURE : Smoothly glided over the lids either using a sponge or finger tips (recommended). For those who loves to use brush is also O-kay but base cream won't easily attached to the skin unless you use sponge/finger-tips.

COLOR : There are 4-types of colors & formulas: 1. Base : A glittery and creamy powder to enhance the color of the eye shadow. This comes in milky white creamy powder and resulted in glittery-sheer color after applied in the eye lids. ; 2. Light Color/Peachy-beige : A fine glittery powder that used to highlight or for a quick fresh-look, I used it to pop-out my tired eyes. ; 3. Medium Color/Taupe : Taupe color that comes out to create shadow or smoky color. ; 4. Dark Color/Brown : Brown color that comes out with a hint of glitter; normally used to create edge or applied in the crease of the eye.

FORMULA : Long-lasting. Only bulky after several hours for those who have oily-skin. Shimmering. Glittery. With great pigmentation. Dazzling nude color with a great hint of shimmering <3

TRIVIA : Do you know that their well-known ambassador is Minami (Hinase)? She was once starring as Yuri Kenbishi for Yukan Club Live Action and 1/2 French-1/2 Japanese.

Okay, for those who wandering about the color of Taupe, I'll show the Taupe diagram ;)

Lipstick Fetish by NYX

I'm a Lipstick Fetish. Full-stop.

I'm a sucker for Lipstick. If I have to choose between Lipstick and other girl's stuff, I prefer Lipstick. Viva la Lipstick~!
Okay, I got these 2 babies in different places: I bought Frappucino in NYX Sales Counter while Tea Rose in OL Shop. The money wise also big different: the Sales Counter labeled it around IDR 65.000 while OL Shop ranges around IDR 30-35k

As you can see, Frappucino tend to be more Brownish :3 while Tea Rose is Pinkish. I just knew NYX product from blogger's review out there, after bought 1 product I have to admit I fell in Love with NYX ♥ I think I'll keep, using NYX lipstick since it has great formula and color! So, here's is my thought about it.

- It's inexpensive (around IDR 65k) ♥
- Available in most of Beauty Department around Indonesia ♥
- Sleek and sturdy black case; somehow I like the older packaging since it's more girly look :< ♥
- Lower base of the packaging shows the color of the lipstick ♥
- Travel friendly ♥
- Creamy texture ♥
- Good pigmentation ♥
- Various range of colors ♥

- Not longlasting; lasted for about 2-3 hours :<
- Should I say, doesn't have good coverage especially for Tea Rose
- Comparing to American color variants, Indonesia only has around 30-40 range of colors :<

Curious? Wanna get to know more about one of world's best selling lipstick? Check out the swatch & photos below. Happy reading~! ^^

All My Loving.

On a night like this.

Suddenly remember a memorable song from a Korean girl-band debuted in Japan: Sugar ( シュガー 슈가) Nevertheless to say, even though they're already disbanded, their music will always echo in my mind. If you're interested to listen more about their music, click here.

Have you ever miss somebody so badly? Now, let me reminiscence for a moment...

ETUDE HOUSE Sweet Recipe Baby Choux in #03 Peach Choux

"Girls gotta be like a chocolate-filled mint candy; Strong on the outside, sweet in the inside."

Heyya, reader. I could tell you that it's already lebaran holiday and spending my time at home is on the top of my priority list. It's another review again from Etude House. Hmmm, nobody can't stop me to buy more cuteness overload stuff from Etude House, and it's Sweet Recipe Baby Choux Base

Mine is Baby Choux Base #03 Peach Choux; it has SPF 25, PA++ on the formula. This Baby choux cream is totally inspired from Choux pastry. As a part of Sweet Recipe series, this make-up base suits you best for a lazy-day make-up. It has medium-full coverage level based on how thick you're going to apply. It's water-proof! and also build-able. You can cover it up with a light loose powder for more fresher look.

FRAGRANCE : First thing that catch my attention is its fragrance, it has soft peach-based with a little bit powdery fragrance, smells like straight-from-the-oven peach-cream choux :3 thus makes me wanna munch choux, rawr.

TEXTURE : When first swipe it on your skin-layer, the texture is little bit moist and airy, but when I try to rub the cream to my face, it turns out that there are micro-beads within the cream O_O but don't worry those beads will absorbs in no time. Its peachy cream reminds me of Choux cream :3 so smooth.

PACKAGING : Super-duper sweet! The outer packaging made from quite-sturdy box with a matte finishing, while the jar made from glass with a glittery-yellow cap. It's quite heavy jar, frankly, not travel-friendly. However, if you are cute stuff collector like me, then it worth to keep one.

RESULT : It has good staying power! Applied it on the morning and stayed all day long until evening ^^ However, the color pigmentation result doesn't satisfy me enough: it looks too ghastly for my medium-yellowish skin tone. Although, it successfully covers reddish spot on my cheek

BONUS : Spatula! To avoid direct contact with your finger in case you have dirrrty fingers. Well, it's a good option to avoid bacteria contamination but apparently not a good idea if you're in a typical working days in case you unconsciously dip your finger to the jar!

"You're invited to the Sweet Cookie House with irresistible desserts and delicious colors."
