Me and My Love to Beauty Products

 Hi everybody,

I'm a beauty blogger that loves beauty products, really you say? These more than 1700 posts about beauty products in my blog proves it.

Beauty products is always exciting, fun, and for me it's my getaway from my daily routine or life. So, I always look for that new items on the shelves, or perhaps the products that everybody has been gossiping about. There's always a new one every now and then. Beauty products world has never been a quite one, it's always been the one that make a lot of fuss.

Now, what is this has anything to do with elevenia? Simple! has dedicating a section just for beauty products. Divided into skincare and cosmetics (hooray!).

Btw, have you heard about elevenia? Elevenia is a marketplace for seller and buyer to meet, it is an open one, everybody can sign up for free, I did too. It is very easy and simple, and if you're feeling lazy in filling up forms, you can simply sign in with your Facebook account (neat, huh?!).

I know, I know, the thing with online shopping is always the same, is it safe? I read from many other marketplace that there are a lot of fraught happening nowadays, elevenia with Escrow system help tackles those problems for a guaranteed satisfaction. The buyer will confirm the product purchased so the seller can have their payment. The system also help the seller with delivery tracking, so just in case there's a naughty buyer that claims they haven't received the items but actually did. So, whether you're a seller or buyer, elevenia got it covered for you.

Beside of that safety system and the simplicity elevenia brings, they also carries a wide variety of sections, Fashion, Baby and Kids, Gadgets, Electronic, Food, Services, Home Deco, and heehee, again, my favorite part, the Beauty Department.

As soon as I get into the page, I was overwhelmed with the options.

From common brands we could find in the malls, to those which only available through online shopping, and the prices are friendly too. I've checked some of the items and they are also having a sale right now on several products =^__^=, who could resist a hot sale.


Those are only a few from more than 20.000 items, yes, twenty thousands items on the cosmetics department. It's amazing how many they are (so those 1700 posts doesn't sound like much, does it?!)

There's so many items I haven't tried and very eager to do so, as I browse and browse and browse, I found this very handy thing called 'wishlist'. I can simply keep on goggling and put the ones I want to check for further readings later on at the wishlist. Just click once (no need to click on OK, the item will already be at your wishlist once the writings become red) and at the end of the 'tour', I can check out all the items on wishlist. 

It made shopping a lot easier and I don't have to keep back and forth to many pages (20.000 products is a lot, so saving time is needed heehee).

Here's a wishlist that I created:


And I can go on and on and on (it's just the print screen is too tight). I always love Chanel so they are definitely on my wishlist, they are a premium products that deliver beautiful result, their CC Cream is famous for being so smooth and give gorgeous finish to the skin, so they'll have an even tone with radiant healthy look.

And the lipstick by Chanel, oh, who can resist the rose petals like finish.

And Mizzu, famous for being waterproof, yet so budget friendly, Instyler Rotating Iron for that soft hair with a salon like effect without a fuss at the convenience at our own home.

Nano Handy Mist, for the skincare addict in me, we all need a handy tool we can carry everywhere and make our skin healthy and beautiful, moist and well taken care off. Etude House Color My Brow with various of options on brow colors, and Dose of Color Matte Lipstick, since there is no such thing as too many lipstick in this life. 

I don't think I need any excuse in putting them all (and so much more) in my wishlist.


But, if you do, you can simply read reviews, yes, each product has reviews for them, which made shopping here much cooler, so you can check other people opinion before making a purchase, so you get a clue on the products even more.

Still need more reasons? Open and you'll understand more.

Thank you for reading my post and checking my beauty box. All products are available at elevenia.

Kiehl's Facial Fuel No Shine Hydrator Oil Free 24 Hour Moisture Gel ForMen

Hello everyone,

it's another review for Kiehl's and this time it is for the man's department. It's Facial Fuel No Shine Hydrator Oil Free 24 Hour Moisture Gel.

Details by

Facial Fuel No-Shine Hydrator

A refreshing, lightweight moisture gel that reduces the appearance of oil
  • Works 24/7 to control oil, shine and sweat while providing oil-free, healthy hydration for men
  • Helps regulate and absorb excess oil while boosting skin’s optimal hydration and natural protective barrier
  • Breakthrough formula can absorb up to a thousand times their weight in sweat
  • Non-greasy, fast absorbing, and free of all oils, silicones, parabens, fragrances and color

As always, the one that become my rabbit is my hubby. He opt for this product since he needs moisturizer that feels fresh on the skin and reduce the oil. He doesn't have an overwhelming oily skin, for me I think he is still in the normal to oily zone.

So, he starts using it immediately after receiving, he cleansed and toned. After his regular serum he puts the moisturizer on. At first, he was happy with the gel like texture. It is light and fresh, on the skin, it felt light too. But after a while, he felt a tingling and then itchy sensation. Then, some redness appears, I guess he is either sensitive to one or some ingredients inside the product or it is just too drying for him.

Sad to say, he wont be able to help me with further review on the product, perhaps it is for those who have a oily to very oily skin type only.

Psst!!Will try to find someone with that really oily skin to help me reviewing this particular item ^__^

SILKYGIRL Blockbuster Color Palette, Shimmer Duo Blusher, BIGEye in Dark Brown, Funky Eyelights Pencil in Frosty Silver, and Moisture Balm Lip Color in Lychee

Hi everybody,

it's been a while since my last post, my health has been an issue, but per today I feel much better and really have to catch up with posts. Here it is, the products received from SILKYGIRL during Beauty Blogger Meet Up.


The products details :

The Shimmer Duo Blusher pairs matte and shimmer shades to illuminate your features. The matte blush can be used shading and contouring, whilst the shimmer shades can be used for hightlighting. When used together, you can see an instant glow on your face at once. Oil-free and fragrance-free

Moisture Balm Lipcolor is a combination of a lip balm with the color of a lipstick. Its core is made out of a lip balm which is loaded with multivitamins A, C and E to help nourish lips and protect lips against harmful UV rays. The Macadamia Seed Oil and Jojoba Oil helps to retain lips' moisture and elasticity.

With eight shades to choose from, Lipcolor lovers will be spoilt for choices!

The rest of the products has been reviewed or shared on my previous posts, please do look on the label for SILKYGIRL at my blog.

And below are the swatches of all the products used on the look above.


They are so adorable, and beside easy to be used, as usual the products by SILKYGIRL is always friendly to the wallet.


For me the highlights is definitely on the lipstick, the Moisture Balm Lip Color feels so smooth on the lips and moisturizing as well. I really love the color. Lychee is not a common name for a lipstick heehee but in SILKYGIRL world, it does.

The color glides on easily and leave that perfect mid matte and glowy effect. For me, it is just right.

I'm also liking the blusher for being so soft, so the color is not pigmented, so it gives the cheek that subtle hint of rosy glow (or other shade if you choose different).

I found SILKYGIRL products very suitable for those looking for an everyday makeup, whether you're in college or working, they are fit for that fuss free daily look.

Thank you SILKYGIRL.

IOMA Bespoke

Hello lovelies,

during my last visit to IOMA opening counter at Mal Kelapa Gading, the Bespoke is given to me. The 'prescribed' skincare is one of the highlight of this brand.
Here's a video I've made several weeks ago for IOMA Bespoke:


As described in the video, the day and night cream are made fresh to order.

Here's how the staff at IOMA made them:


Following my skin chart and analysis, the ingredients are put inside each container, one for day usage, and the other for night time use.

Check out for further details.

STEP 1: High precision diagnosis

After performing the diagnosis using our patented IOMA Beauty Diag device, a personalised program for your client is displayed on the screen of the device. Unique formulas for Day Cream and Night Cream are provided for you, selected from 864 possible formulations.

STEP 2: Personalized formulation of the Day Cream and Night Cream

You will start preparing these two formulas using the two active Day and Night Cream bases. Each contains 18 active ingredients that have been carefully selected for their remarkable effectiveness. Add a few droppers of each of the 8 high performance serums, each containing a maximum concentration of active ingredients, to these bases.

The base are already inside each container.
The Day Cream base, light as a cloud, and the Night Cream base, rich and regenerating.
Each one contains:


Neutrazen is an ultra-performing peptide that reduces the threshold of skin sensitivity, combats reactivity of sensitive skin and prevents the appearance of redness.

Vitamin E

Vitamin E antioxidant properties protect the body from the harmful effects of free radicals and slow down the skin's aging process. Its presence enables the best conservation of membrane lipids, composed of polyunsaturated fatty acids, that are highly sensitive to oxidation.

Inside each 'kit' contains these serums in separate pipette bottles:

8 Additional Serums

In order to boost the effectiveness of the 2 Active Bases, the 8 Serums are added according to your specific needs.


  • H1 - Long-term moisturising
  • H2 - Self-regulating moisturising
  • H3 - Anti-aging moisturising
  • R1 - Elasticity & firmness
  • R2 - Redensification
  • R3 - Botox-like tightening effect
  • R4 - Global anti-ageing
  • R5 - Firmness & smoothing

The ones that they add into the bottles are these serums, each made according to ones skin condition, at that time. The day and night do have different concoction as well.


This process has successfully made me feel ultra special, I'm no longer in the 'crowd', my skin is unique and individual, I do need products that is made accordingly. Sometime when finding the right skincare can be challenging, some of the ingredients is wanted while some not so much, or the other way around. Or perhaps it's too thick, too light, too oily, too greasy, too dry, not moisturizing enough but help reducing the redness, very moisturizing but made some area feel very uncomfortable, dislike the whitening effect but love the mattefying effect, the list can go on and on and on.

With IOMA Bespoke, we can simply rest assure that these two moisturizer carries everything our skin's need.

And as seen on the video, the texture is very light, comfortable and made for me just right. Now, everyone can have their own personal skincare freshly made on the spot.


Inside the box contain pamphlet, details and information regarding the product, ingredients, how to use, and many more.

I've been using the products for weeks now and enjoy the result very well. My skin is hydrated enough, comfortable, less irritation occurs, less redness, no fresh new lines, the skin looks more relaxed, there's a luminous glow and radiance every day, and I haven't been visited by acne since using them.

I'm using Bespoke without adding other products like serum or eye cream or anything else. The Bespoke alone are enough.

I'm so eager to have my skin checked again at their counter but haven't got the time to do so, I'll share with you on my instagram @c13v3rgirl with the result of the analysis.


Thank you so much IOMA Indonesia.

Smile Brilliant

Hello everyone!!!

A few months ago I was asked by this lovely company called Smile Brilliant to review their amazing product. The product is a teeth whitening kit.

Based in the USA the company created a professional teeth whitening kit to be used at home, yes, as comfortable as it may sound, it is.


It's a simple box but contain everything we need to create a one of a kind tray for our unique set of teeth.

So, they first ship this box, then we have to create our own mold and send it back. They make the tray by using the mold and send to us the finished clear tray for our usage. Sounds complicated? It's not. Just do one thing at a time.


All the details are already written inside the box, from how to use the gels, the mold, the what's to prepare, what to do before, after during and everything in between.


First thing first, clean the teeth thoroughly, this means brushing, flossing, and making sure there's nothing need to be removed. You also have to visit your dentist first, consult, treat the decays, and perhaps do a simple sensitivity test. If everything's okay, then go ahead, and don't forget your 6 monthly scaling ya.

Okay, once the teeth are good to go and super duper clean, let's make the mold.


The blue one is the base paste and the white one is catalyst. Don't forget to wash your hands and dried them as well before touching them.


Mixed those blue and white paste into one, like mixing a dough, gently keep stretching and folding them into half until the total time is according to instruction, for me, the paste already mixed quite well around 1 minute and 15-20 seconds, and by the time it reaches 2 minute, it is not as stretchy as before.


As the info goes, placed it into the tray and set it well, watch out for the time, and then put it on the upper or lower set of the teeth until they set well and according to the time given.

Now, as they have times for each process and to be hones, one mouth can only fit one tray, so don't be silly and make both of them as it is not possible.


And after they are done, I shipped them both to USA, don't worry, they provide a fluffy envelope with the full address written. Alongside with the package, we need to send back a piece of paper, the one that says we already agree that we consent on the result and we had been consulting with our dentist.

As you can see, on each tray there's a QR code, so there's little chance of getting ours mixed up.

Once they received ours, they'll send an email of notification. I send mine using Pos Indonesia, with Rp.98.000 the package is received within 2 weeks.


And soon after, I get my personal tray made by them. It is cool and somewhat creepy at the same time haha! Like, it was my own.

A nice black box also goes for safekeeping.


Now, the teeth whitening process begin,

after checking there's no residue on the clear tray, I clean them using a mild soap and water. Dry them thoroughly. Clean my teeth as well, brushing plus flossing included.


I use the desensitizing gel first, it helps reduce the sensitivity on the teeth due to whitening process that I'm about to go through.

The gel is a cool gel with a pleasant feeling.

The tray fitted perfectly on my teeth. I can use both of them at the same time.


As waiting can be quite long (between 20-60 minutes) I suggest you to eat all you want and drink as many as you please before getting started.

Since I have sensitive teeth, I patiently wait for 60 minutes.

And then I took them off, rinse and gently brushed my teeth as instructed. Rinse and dry the tray again and apply the teeth whitening gel.

Of course I took a glass of water before applying the tray again.


I put them on for around 2 hours (since I'm so bored, thirsty, and frankly, couldn't take it anymore), the gel is comfortable, is just, I can hardly speak properly, I'm hungry (I'm always hungry) and yep, bored hehe.

There is a bit of sensitivity on the area where my crown doesn't fit perfectly (blame it on a particular dentist at Q&M in Singapore), but apart from that, everything is fine and enjoyable. Why is it enjoyable, look at the result below.


From top to bottom: before, during desensitizing process, during teeth whitening process, after result.

My teeth has gone so white in a single usage.

My tongue and other part inside the mouth do feel sensitive for a while (like I just suck too many candies) but it goes away in an hour or two (or perhaps I don't really remember as I went to sleep soon after, and when I wake up, everything is well).

These process can be repeated again and again and again, consult the dentist on how often to repeat the process and as for me, I'm definitely will do it again and I really want to see how white my teeth could be.

Take note though, as it is the same goes as a teeth whitening process in the dentist, result may vary as it is according to ones teeth condition.

Overall, I'm happy they send me a kit and my teeth are white now!

Thank you Smile Brilliant.

Anna Sui La Nuit De Boheme

Hello ladies,

how are you? It's been a roller coaster week for me. One of the highlight is this one very very very irresistible perfume by Anna Sui.


The perfume was launched at Gandaria City, Jakarta. Everyone can see the beauty of the campaign, many people who visit the mall ended up goo goo ga ga about the extravaganza.


Who doesn't?! Even I went goo goo ga ga looking at these beautiful bottles, I'm like moth attracted to the lights LOL ^__^


The perfume comes in two variant:
The Eau de Toilette is elegant, sophisticated, and romantic.
The Eau de Parfum is mysterious, seductive, and secretive.


The EDT is in gold, look how beautiful it is.

These perfumes comes from the inspiration of La Vie de Boheme in 2013, where a young bohemian girl full of light, love and cheerfulness, but at night, she turns into a sensual and mysterious girl.


I personally love the EDT, the sun is setting, the golden lights of the night life is evoking, revealing glamor, femininity, and endless love. A wonderful, magical miracle of the night.

Top note: Champagne Citrus, Midnight Blackberry, Golden Delicious Apple.
Middle Note: Gilded Lotus Flower, Rose Petale, Sunset Oud Wood, Topaz Hinoki Incense.
Base Note: Cedarwood Heart, Haitian Vanilla Orchid, Indonesian Patchouli, Golden Amber Resin.

The aroma is floral-woody-fruity.


All of the decors are made specially for La Nuit de Boheme, impressive isn't it?! Seems like in Anna Sui world, all the details are important.


Standing next to the golden bottle is the black one, the Eau de Parfum.


One night, a drama and secret hidden. It's party time in the dark, partially bohemian, glamorous, romantic, self surrender to the new sensation, awakening of the night, to the sparkling joie de vivre. Deep, mysterious, and magnetic.

Top note: Calabria Bergamot, Mandarin, Succulent Dark Berries, Forbidden Apple.
Mid note: Night Blooming Jasmine, Orange Blossom, Moon-Ripened Black Plum Accord, Magnolia 'Galaxy', Black Rose of Dubai.
Base note: Sensual Sandalwood, Intoxicating Ceremonial Patchouli, Dark Amber, Midnight Musk.

The aroma is floriental-fruity.


After enjoying myself at the venue, all the media invited are having a meal together and alongside we are crafting flowers.


Rose, a flower that has been a part of Anna Sui.


Soon after that, we're back to the venue and the event is starting, introducing the perfume, the concept, the woman, a modern Scheherazade, a Bohemian princess with a free spirit, where she'll find the beauty of the night.

The model is Gracie van Gastel in everything golden, provocative, strong and captivating.


As I already posted it on my instagram @C13v3rgirl
If you come between now until 19th of Oct 2014 and purchase the perfume in big size, you'll get the 30 ml free plus other benefits as described in the image below.


30 ml: Rp. 555.000
