Korean Beauty Box by Sephora


Annyeonghaseyo!

Today I want to share with you about K-beauty! Yeay! So, for the last few months I've been really into Korean skincare and makeup. My skincare routine from cleansing foam, toner, serum, moisturizer and masks... are Korean brands and they're really good.

Naahh... Today, I will share about Korean makeup, I'll share about the skincare soon on another blog post :) So, I got a lovely set... Actually a box from Sephora and the theme is Korean Beauty Box. In the box I got 5 items, a sheet mask, foundation, brow pencil, single eye shadow and a lipstick. I was challenged to do a Korean makeup look using these makeup products and I can mix it using my other makeup products... I mean, sure I need an eye liner, mascara and blusher to complete the makeup look, right?



So, usually, for special occasion when I need to look super good and I want my makeup looks flawless and long lasting, I put on a sheet mask an hour before I apply my makeup. I heard some good reviews about Dr.Jart+'s sheet masks and this pore cleaner sheet mask is my first mask from this brand. I've tried this mask and it is so good. The mask is a black mask and after few minutes had the mask on my face I can feel warm feeling and I think it means that the essence is doing its job... Cleaning my pores! Ha!! I left the sheet mask for about 20-25 minutes and I can see my skin looks brighter and clearer. Thumbs up!


The next item is a foundation from Sephora collection brand, Sephora brightening and hydrating foundation and I got mine in the shade no.26 Peach. This foundation is really good, I love it. On my skin, it gives me a really natural dewy look. Dry skin girl like me looooooove this kind of foundation and I am not sure if it's also great on oily skin because it is super hydrating and it will make you super shiny after few hours.

The coverage is buildable from light to medium, so if you have some acne scars and dark spots you're still need to use concealer. For application I prefer using a flat top kabuki brush because using beauty blender will gives you more sheer coverage and even more dewier look. Packaging wise, I like it because it comes with a pump so I can control how many product I need and also it is more hygienic. The only con about this product is it only has 20ml of product in it. I need another 10ml of goodness! Seriously!

Oh, yes, to make you look more fresh, don't forget to apply blusher... My fave is cream blush from Make Up For Ever because cream product really appropriate for dewy makeup look.

After doing my face makeup, I do my eye brows. I got an automatic brow pencil from the brand Sarange called Jaljinae?! I think it means 'what's up?!' In English. Mine is in the shade dark brown.
The brow pencil has double ended, the pencil and a spoolie. Using this kind of brow pencil is quite tricky because once it is not sharp anymore it is a bit difficult to get a very precise line. But once you get used to it, your eye brow game is getting stronger :p The brow pencil is very waxy, I can see one or two brow hairs are falling every time I use it, that's how waxy it is. Make sure to brush the brows with the spoolie to get a natural brow look.


Next is single eye shadow from Sephora brand. I got mine in the shade no.81 Sunday Brunch, which is a very beautiful bronzy gold color. I am not a master of describing colors :p but the point is it is a lovely color. It is so pigmented and long lasting even without eye primer. I can not say anything bad about this product.


Well, for the makeup look, I also use a black shadow from Maybelline and a jumbo pencil in the shade yoghurt from Nyx for my under eye area. You know, Korean girls loves to apply shimmer products on their under eye area to make them look younger and cuter.


Next is lip product, another item from Sarange brand, the lipstick is in the shade no.4 Pink Violet. The first time I tried the lipstick... I don't like it, because it has gold shimmer in it and I felt like the shade didn't match my skin tone, but after few times I use it, I like it... Even  though it doesn't look good for my skin tone, but the formula is very comfortable, not drying on the lips and it smells lovely.


... and finally, the makeup look :)


I like to wear glasses, the huge one... so here are a couple photos with the glasses on :)


In my opinion, all of the products in the box are good and worth to try. You can find all the products on sephora.co.id ... 
And get free shipping if you spent more than IDR 200K! 
* I love free shipping! Lol *


Thank you for reading and have a good day everyone!

Zoulou!

Hi beauties!

So glad that finally able to do a post again! Today is another lip swatch! 
Not two, not three… but only one shade. Haha! Because it is Christian Louboutin lipstick! I'd love to do 10 or 20 swatches for you but when I am become a billionaire… okay? I promise.
So, I only have one of Christian Louboutin lipstick. Since I love matte lipstick, I got the matte velvet one in the shade Zoulou. If you like brown lipstick that has red undertone to it, this one is for you, except if you're on a budget, of course. Speaking about budget, the Christian Louboutin's lipstick is around USD 90 and the lip liner is around USD 70. Which is insane.
 The packaging is beautiful and it feels expensive… and it's a bit heavy.
 Even though the lipstick is matte, it is not dry on my lips and glides on easily, like a butter. It stays on your lips quite well. You still need to touch up if you eat oily food or heavy meals and I think that's normal, you should be worried if the lipstick stays and you can not remove it. 
Well, so far, I love the lipstick. I have no idea if I am going to get another shade or not because you know… the price is ridiculous. But, the lipstick is great, the colour pay off, the packaging and the quality… really worth the money. The only advice from me if you want to get your first Louboutin lipstick, get the shade you're comfortable with. I love brown colour lipstick, so I got Zoulou. If you like red lipstick, get one even if you already have hundreds of red lipstick in your makeup storage. Just make sure you like and love what you got after spending lots of your money.

Thank you for reading!
Have a good day!

Polka!

Hi everyone!

Today is another lip swatch post and i am exciting! The lippies are from the brand named polka and the lip lacquer named polka matteness. From the name you knew that the finish is matte ... but the formula is surprisingly moisturizing and so comfortable on the lips, really similar to L.A girl matte liquid lipstick and for me another interesting point is that they're local brand... Yes, they're from Indonesia!!! I am not saying that they're so good because the brand originally from my country... I swear they're so good and long wearing. They won't make your lips looks super dry and disgusting. That's important. If you're from another country, i hope you can get your hands on this products and you'll understand what i am talking about. 


So far, there's only four shades available, i hope that they will release more nudes and purple shade. The applicator is a bit stiff but you can still applying the product really well. I have nothing to complain about the product. 

Here are my lip swatches  of the four shades.

Maraccas
Jingle Giggle
Tambourine
Get in the swing
From all of the four shades, my favourite shades are Maraccas and Tambourine.
How about you? Which shade is your favourite??

Thank you for reading!
Have a good day!

Eternally Yours

Holla beauties!
This is gonna be my first post in 2016! 

This time I am going to write about every girl's biggest problem… yes, lipstick! So, this is my first time trying out Stila's all day liquid lipsticks and I decided to get the Eternally Yours holiday set and it has 6 shades in mini size which is great if you just want to try out the product. From 6 shades, my fave shades  are Patina, Aria and Como and also the formula are better than the other three which are Caramello, Fiery and Chianti. Caramello is too pale for my complexion and the formula is drier than the other shades, Fiery and Chianti has different formula, they're a bit tricky to apply, so it is better to apply lip pencil first before the lipstick. 

Patina, Aria and Como are everyone's favourite (well, many lipstick junkies raves about them), beautiful shades with more comfortable and easy to apply formula. Me, personally loves Patina and Como for my daily makeup look. All of them are beautiful but those two are my fave!

Here are my lip swatches of all six shades.

Caramello
Patina
Como
Aria
Fiery
Chianti - sorry for the messy swatch 
Basically, all of them are good. It depends on how well you know how to make them look great with your makeup look. I am not a master on applying makeup, that's why I only put on some natural makeup look to make the lip colour looks extraordinary. Hahaha… weird sentence!

Make up details :

Foundation - Bourjois healthy mix serum shade 53
Concealer - Bourjois healthy mix shade 53
Brow - Nyx micro brow pencil (espresso) and Benefit Gimme Brow
Eyes - Tom Ford nude dip + Tarte eye liner in purple color
Blush - Nyx (pinched)
For this makeup look I didn't apply any mascara, bronzer and highlighter. 

Well, thank you for reading! Feel free to leave a comment and share what's your favourite lipstick!

Have a good day!

Sponsored video : Express yourselves!

Hi !

Today I want to share with you another thought about expressing yourselves. Many girls and women are afraid to express what they feel inside. Maybe because they're afraid to look weak and ugly. Well, from now on I encourage you to express any kind of feeling you have without worrying you'll look weak and ugly because we're all beautiful.

In life, each on of us have our own problems. Sometimes we feel happy, sometimes we're sad and angry… that's life and we have rights to express what we feel inside. In good and bad times we have to thanked God because from these situations we got many lessons learned.

Me, personally, I always try to express what I feel inside. I'll tell you if I don't like your attitude or if you do something wrong or disrespectful to other people… I always trying to be a honest person.

I know it's kinda confusing and awkward to discuss my personal thought on my blog … but if you're agree about being honest to express your feeling, kindly click on the video and see what I am trying to tell you…


Just remember, you are beautiful just the way you are… be honest and add your beauty to the world!

Thank you for reading! Feel free to leave a comment and have a good day!

melted!

Holla everyone!

Finally, another blog update! This time I want to share about these famous lipsticks from Too Faced, the Melted liquid lipstick. I know there are already millions of reviews and swatches of this lipstick but I just want to do it anyway. I am a newbie in the world of liquid lipstick, I was thinking that liquid lipsticks are weird… haha! But now I love them! So, these Melted lipsticks are my first ones. I got it in the shade Chihuahua and Berry and I loveee them. Seriously. Really comfortable to wear for daily makeup look, no sticky feeling and it lasts about 4-5 hours on my lips. The finish is matte that's why usually applied my eos lip balm before applying these lipsticks because I have a super dry lips.



Too Faced Melted lipstick in the shade Chihuahua is straight up brown lipstick… and that's why I love this one. Yes, I am a brownie lippie kind of girl (haha… oh gosh, sounds like I am a freak). I was thinking about to get the one in the shade nude and happy that I decided to get this one because the nude one is a lighter brown shade and too pale for my skin tone and clearly it will make me look like I am sick or something like that. This shade perfect for fair to medium skin tone.


Too Faced Melted in the shade Berry is such a really fun colour… well, in my opinion. It is bright and catchy, perfect for any seasons of the year. I like to wear this one when I have minimal makeup but still one to look put together. Make me look fresh and healthier. Is that make sense? (haha!)


So far, I love these Melted lipsticks from Too Faced and would like to try other shades in the future. Maybe next I'll try Fig and Violet, we'll see ^.^ I also like purple base lipstick colour. I'll write another blog post about it. 


Thank you for reading and feel free to leave a comment or share with me what's your favourite liquid lipsticks or any makeup products that I should try.


Have a great day everyone!

Daniel Wellington!

Hi everyone!

I am so glad that now I can manage to update my blog almost everyday! Yeay-ness!
Today I want to share about a well known watch brand called Daniel Wellington. The story behind Daniel Wellington begins with a trip half way around the globe where Filip Tysander, the founder of Daniel Wellington, met an intriguing gentleman from the British Isles. The man had the inspiring ability to be genteel but still relaxed and unpretentious. He had an impeccable style and loved to wear his watches on old weathered NATO straps. His name? Well, Daniel Wellington, of course. The preppy trend is bigger than ever before but they felt that there was an empty space in the watch market. There was something missing and the Daniel Wellington team aims to fill that gap. Their vision is that when someone thinks of a preppy dressed person, he or she is wearing a Daniel Wellington watch. When Filip’s line of watches came to be launched, it was no insecurity that the brand would be named after Daniel Wellington. 

They felt it important to make the watch thin and elegant, they wanted a clean design, without too many features, that would look good with the different patterns and colours of the iconic NATO straps. Slowly but surely, a beautiful watch emerged. It was thin, refined and perfectly round. It was minimalistic and without too many features. They believe that the traditional, yet crisp design blends together perfectly with the colourful NATO strap and elegant leather strap which will appeal to almost everyone with a sense for classic and timeless design.

Classy Sheffield - 26 mm

With a case size of just 26 millimeters, this is the most minimalistic collection of watches by Daniel Wellington. The finish creates a beautiful harmony between the band and the exclusive Swarovski crystals, and the slim dial makes it a watch that oozes classy femininity. The ultra-thin (6mm) Daniel Wellington watch is suitable for every occasion. Whether you are attending a formal event, playing a game of tennis or enjoying a sunny day at the country club, Daniel Wellington makes for a beautiful companion. Not only that, but with interchangeable straps you will have a unique timepiece for every day of the week.


Personalize your DW watch. Each and every one of their watches have interchangeable straps which make every watch unique. Their leather straps are made of genuine Italian, quality leather and are available in brown and black with a silver or gold plated brace. 

Now, go to their website and order one of their beautiful watches… feel free to use my discount code 'dwadelle' to get 15% discount from the website shopping! The shipping is free! 




Thank you for reading and have a good day!

by the sea

Hi peeps!

So glad… happy… excited to be back here… writing another article for my blog! I've been so busy with my baby boy, yes, common reason from a blogger mommy. Haha! Can't believe that being a mommy is a full of fun experience and full of surprises. I am so blessed :)

Okay, enough about the motherhood thing because today I want to introduce you to a brand from Bali named By the Sea designed by Brazilian designer Renato Vianna and he spent 15 years with Brazil’s best-known menswear fashion house Richards before moving to Bali in 1993. Spending his life on the beach from childhood on he knows the beach lifestyle as no other. Combined with his fashion heritage, his grandfather was a tailor, mother made the family clothes, so a career in the fashion industry was inevitable. After working in sales retail for two years he started to make his own line of shorts and the instant success made him move to Bali in 1993, where he started to do the production by himself. By the Sea, was found in 1997 with the first outlet based in Legian, Bali. Being inspired by the island’s vibrant colors, natural beauty and relaxed lifestyle his idea was to create pieces that fit with a tropical lifestyle. He has succeeded in taking high quality originally designed fabrics and turning them into easy to wear cool and comfortable resort wear and currently sold in 4 countries worldwide.

Being a mom and living in a cray cray hot city like Surabaya are the reasons why I like to wear simple, comfortable and stylish outfit. Wearing outfit from By the Sea it feels like everyday is holiday because it has beachy (is it a word??) and nautical themes and feeling. Well, yes, the brand is from Bali, no wonder it is so appropriate to wear the designs while you're in vacation to a place like Bali, Lombok, and everywhere else that has beaches. I like to wear their clothes even tough I just strolling around the city, taking my baby out on the weekend in comfortable shorts and stripes loose top ^.^


Burkina glasses - Polette eyewear, grey cardigan - Zara
stripes loose top - By the Sea, green shorts - By the Sea
black shoes - H&M, Classy Sheffield watch - Daniel Wellington
