People say that the eyes are the window for our soul. So, when looking at the view, imagine a lovely frame surrounding the eyes, that's our lids, under eyes and oh well, everywhere around the eyes. That's why for some, even the tiniest wrinkle become far more noticeable compared to other location.

The packaging is all in purple, with details and instruction on how to use it. As seen on the image above, the no.1 and 2, can easily be changed into 1 as middle finger and no.2 as the index finger. Like a Pulp Fiction dance gently place the eye serum on the fingers as mentioned about and in those direction shown on the packaging more towards outer and upper-ward


On the packaging the details are provided in Bahasa Indonesia and English.

The product itself also comes in the purple bottle with silver cap.


I love it, she looks pretty in a shiny purple.

I always opt for an eye serum since it penetrate easier on the skin and doesn't gives that creamy nor greasy side effect since my eyes are already greasy enough.


Below, that's the dot. That's approximately almost a full pump.

That amount is enough for the areas on both eyes. So use both middle and index finger, rub them together and gently apply them on the area like shown on the box. If you're confuse or unsure, the KCR's at any Kiehl's counter will help you out. They also help suggesting whether this particular item is the right product for you or not.


After a bit of blending, before disappearing into the skin. This is how it looks like. So shiny and like a pearly glow. It moisturizes the area by giving an instant hydration and help lifted up the eyes.

The paraben formula feels so light and more safe to be used on the eyes, the skin feels a nit of cooling action once applied.


The firming result is noticeable after days of using it.
On me it's around a week, and I like that it somehow made the eyes looks younger by plumping the skin so the fine lines are less visible. This is a suitable product to be used on sensitive area since it is really like and comforting. I'm using it alone and without any other eye cream and so far, I'm really happy of the feeling when using it and effect. I'll keep using the product for sure!

Thank you so much Kiehl's for opening up my eyes!

Baby Smooth by Cleansing Research BCL (Kay Collection)

Hello everyone,

look at these!!! Seriously, they are like mini comfortable fluffy beds.

These are brushes from Baby Smooth. So cute and adorable!


If you went to Japan Beauty Week at FX Sudirman around a few weeks back, you'll meet them, they are brought here via Kay Collection. They are Baby Smooth product, consist of a scrub cleanser, a cleansing oil, a brush, and a peeling gel.


Before we get to try on the goodies, here's some fun images of the products at the event and the ladies behind Kay Collection. You can be sure that the products is as wonderful as they are. You should check out their full collection at their website.


And here they are the , the oh so cute products with a baby as a symbol of baby smoothness ahead.


I've been using them for weeks now and really enjoying the effect, oh well, the whole family as well.

From the cleansing oil as a wonderful makeup remover, to the scrub and peeling gel too. They all have a thing in common, peach scent.


The fresh and juicy aroma of peach, it is just irresistible.

This brush also sold individually, during the event if if purchase the products we can get a good deal for the brush.

The oh-so-soft brush for facial usage has become the current trend at my home.


I can use it as a foam developer or as directly to the skin. The brush is very soft and suitable to clean our pores. It is gentle enough as a daily cleansing tool. When developing the foam, my foam net is actually produce better foam, so this brush is definitely more to the facial wash brush to me.


This is Bright Facial Wash, contains peach extract and smells like ripe peach. Sweet and delicious. There are tiny beads of scrubs which is suitable for daily use. The cream is white and a hint of peach color. It foamed up easily using a foam net, or when you use just hands, make sure that you give the creamy gel ample time to develop. You want those fluffy dense bubbles to clean the skin.


After developing, I'm using the facial brush and it helps to deep clean the skin. I really enjoy the result after cleansing, like the skin is ultra clean but doesn't have that striking dry effect. Like the pores is just having a detoxifying bath.


This is the creamy formula before it's being developed.


And after foamed up using the brush, as seen they are not fluffy enough. They can easily get fluffier using a foam net.


I use the cleansing foam on daily basis and the cleansing oil (below) when I want to remove a waterproof makeup, or when I feel that my skin is too greasy and too oily. Do you know that for those with oily skin, a cleansing oil is better, while those with dry skin a foam cleanser is better. It's a science on skin.


This is Purifying Cleansing Oil with peach extract and sunflower oil. Smells like -ehm- of course, the juicy peach. It melts makeup and waterproof makeup but not super waterproof makeup like a mascara by Heroine Make. So the cleansing oil is not good? No, it is still very good and comfortable to be used even on daily basis.

Just massage the oils on dry skin and enjoy the time spend when moving in circular movement by sniffing on the peach. Take time in cleaning the skin as the oils need to breaks the makeup particles and carry them off the skin. That's how it cleans up and can be felt onto the pores. Never rush a cleansing process so they'll do their job better.

Use the fingers to feel whether the makeup has been lifted or not, if not wait for a while or keep massaging it gently. When using BB Cream, make sure that every little thing is lifted off, same goes as when using sun protection.

Add a bit of water to emulsify and rinse everything off. You may proceed by using a cleansing foam when you feel like you need to, if not, it's okay, the thin film felt on the skin is actually the moisture left for the skin.


Next in line is the Skin Clear Peeling Gel.

Below is the photos of me using it.

No.1 When pump onto the dry skin.
2. After being spread, they just look like a wet gel on the skin.
3. Almost instantly the dead skin cells are coming off, the more often the skin being peeled the less the dead skin will be. For me once every 2-3 weeks is enough, or up to a month. We can adjust the frequency based on the skin's condition.
4. After being cleaned (by keep on the gentle rub until the gels dry and no more dead skin coming off, rinse with a warm water) and look at the fairer and tighter pores on the skin. 


Thank you so much Kay Collection.

Marc Jacobs Magic MARC'ER

Hi lovelies,

it's time to hunt for another great eyeliner in the market.

Since Sephora opened it's shop in Indonesia, a lot of beauty enthusiasts are ready to explore 'new' items on Indonesian market. Marc Jacobs beauty products are one of the collection sold exclusively at Sephora Indonesia.

Available in the very blackest, shiniest black on the market, this no-transfer, no-fade formula lasts all day, with a sleek design that begs to be held. Suitable for the boardroom or the bedroom.


• Waterproof liquid liner formula is a no-transfer, no-fade, and longwearing.

• Exclusively available in the blackest, shiniest black: Blacquer.

• Calligraphy precision tip allows for drawing thick or thin lines with ease.

ingredient list
Aqua/Water/Eau, Styrene/Acrylates Copolymer, Butylene Glycol, Alcohol, Polyester-5, Pvp, Laureth-4, Phenoxyethanol, Sodium Dehydroacetate, Citric Acid, Black 2 (Ci 77266).


 I've been using Magic MARC'ER for quite some time now and after realizing that Marc Jacobs Beauty comes with cute names, notice the magic marker? Style icon? And many more. It is so cute in an etymologically way.


This is the pen, the Magic MARC'ER in the blackest black possible. The shape of the eyeliner is similar to a Montblanc pen, in terms of size and chubbiness.


Once I opened the pen and look at the tip, ooh, it's beautiful. It's intensely dark, the tip is fine and able to help creating a thin line, not an unnecessary super thin line, but thin as in enough for the eyes, and with a certain pressure may also produce thicker line for a much more needed attention drawn for the eyes.


Above is me using it as a fine line. It accentuates the eyes very well. Do stay tune for more look I'll make using the Magic MARC'ER on my instagram account @carnellin.


Above, the dark ink, is the swatch of the pen, it will go everywhere if used on damp skin. But when used on dry skin it will be like the image below. Superlative, satisfactory, yet delicate and subtle.


In terms of being waterproof, it is correct, but it wont stay against greasy lid. Use a primer and powder on the greasy lid so the eyeliner may have a better chance on staying.

Thank you so much Marc Jacobs Beauty Indonesia.

Lime Crime Velvetines in Suedeberry

Hello all,

oh I just love love love Velvetines, I think they're the best in terms of liquid lipstick turns into matte.

Now, I have two of these babies, one in Pink Velvet and this is Suedeberry.


Ground-breaking formula that goes on liquid and dries completely matte. Touch-proof, transfer-proof, long-wearing and utterly addictive!

Ingredients: Silica Dimethyl Silylate, Trimethylsiloxysilicate, Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethicone, Synthetic Beeswax, Hydrogenated Polyisobutene, Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate, Tocopheryl Acetate, Isododecane, Flavor (Aroma), Kaolin, Phenoxyethanol, Caprylyl Glycol, Hexylene Glycol. May Contain [+/-]: Red 30 Lake CI 73360, Titanium Dioxide CI 77891, Iron Oxides CI 77491 CI 77492 CI 77499, Red 6 Lake CI 15850, Red 7 Lake CI 15850, Yellow 5 Lake CI 19140, Manganese Violet CI 77742, Red 27 Lake CI 45410, Red 28 Lake CI 45410, Blue 1 CI 42090. VEGAN/CRUELTY-FREE.


I think the details provide enough explanation and they did all that. Long wear, touch proof and as along as I don't eat anything oily, they'll stay transfer proof as well.

The color is undeniably strong and rich. The dramatic effect when using Velvetines is fascinating, like literally becomes the attention. Beauty addicts will notices and whispers 'she's wearing limecrime', it's surely become addictive using it.

The full collection varies from the reddest red to black. You'll be spoiled with unordinary choices.


Definitely a must have collection for me.

The formula is not really forgiving when it is dry and has become matte, so during application, make sure that you clean the mess before 20-30 seconds as those are the approximate time for the liquid to turn into matte. Use a cotton bud to lift up the liquid outside the lips and don't move around too much so it sets well.

When cleaning it, as mentioned above, it doesn't stands against oil so use an oil-based lip cleanser.

I got mine from @lumiere_corner (instagram).

Thank you.

The cream can be used as a base after skincare or primer before applying other product such as foundation or directly to compact powder.


Like almost all of the packaging from Beauty Story, it's a faint salmon pink.

Look at the cream below, looks pretty isn't it?!

Well, at first I kinda underestimate the product, why? 1. It's new. 2. the texture is light and like a lotion. 3. I couldn't find much details since they haven't have many reviews. So here's more information from the website:

(includes pictures to feature the other products)
What it is formulated WITHOUT:
- Parabens

I can use my finger, brush or sponge when using the cream, it really doesn't matter as it blends well anyway.

The feeling on the skin is quite comfortable. Almost like using a moisturizer, a creamy moisturizer.


The CC Cream which cost Rp.95.000 makes the skin instantly glows and looks super pretty. Somehow their products reminds me of a K-Pop look, dewy, pinkish, lovable and made the user appears younger.


You'll love this fresh look on your skin too.

The rest of the collection also helps in creating that younger look.


This is Romantic Eye Pencil.
(Rp 90.000)

What it is formulated WITHOUT:
- Parabens

I'm using it as a smudged eyeliner.
It blends really well on the eyelids and creating this cloudy effect. Oh wait, the shade is in Cloudy. Beside Cloudy, Beauty Story also carries Mist, Petal, and Rose Leaf.

I can use it as an eyeliner and eyeshadow. The creamy formula feels comfortable on the eyelids, I love how they care for the user with no parabens, sulphates and phthalates in the ingredients.


The last item I'm trying is their Lip and Cheek in Sweet Pea.
(Rp. 65.000)
A great multi-tasking cream color that perfectly blushing your cheek and even your lips too! It's in a mirrored flip-top compact for on-the-spot application. The silky and creamy texture makes it easy to blend on the apples of your cheeks for a dewy look. Blot it on your lips for a soft, stained finish.
What it is formulated WITHOUT:
- Parabens
- Sulfates
- Phthalates

The product which comes in two shades only (this and Rose) are so cute. At first, looking at Sweet Pea as in not very happy with the orange tone, I'm certain that it will look weird on me, and again, I'm so wrong.


Above image, on my right cheek I'm using none and the left one using Sweet Pea, it looks so pretty.

Look at the finish look below.


Like a delightful hint of coral on the cheeks. And below after adding a lipstick. A complete look.


The creamy and glossy formula of the Lip and Cheek is appealing. It snugged comfortably on the cheeks or lips (I didn't use it on the lips for the image above). They can appear with shine when used after powder or matte when used before powder. So the finish can be determined by the order of usage.

As seen on the finished look, the CC Cream helps to even out the skin tone but doesn't cover major imperfection like my erupting acne. It helps the skin to appears much more healthier, dewy, blooming and bright.

Cloudy eye pencil is so easy to be used and blend on the lids, so does the Lip and Cheek Cream. The Sweet Pea is so sweet and satisfying. The color is dainty and surprisingly endearing.

Definitely a collection that deserves a chance to be recognize. Budget friendly and in terms of quality, they are quite good as well, plus, they contain no parabens and other known harmful chemicals.

Thank you so much Beauty Story.
