-*-



Each are sold for Rp. 36.000 (which is oh-so-affordable) and you can also purchase them on beauty stores or their official instagram account @QLCosmetic_Online

Good luck in finding all full shade, so when you do happen to find them, immediately purchase these babies >.<

-*-

All the ingredients are listed on the plastic packaging in blue, so before unwrapping them, make sure you do read them all for your references.

The packaging is cute, the shape of the container is not slim, it's slightly chubby in the middle.

-*-


The names and numbers or the products are written on a sticker on below of each product and on the cap in white alongside with the barcode.

-*-


They have normal-like wand,just like any other liquid lipstick with the soft sponge on the tip that shaped like a curved for a better application on the lips, especially for those who doesn't like using a lip pencil before (like me).

The liquid as seen below is runny but filled with pigment. So the texture is very light, comfortable and doesn't have that rich creamy after taste.

-*-


Here I am using number 21. Peach Angel, that really is like an angel. So innocent, bright and cheerful color.

-*-


I'm surprised by how light the textures are, they feel so like using nothing. They dried up pretty fast on the lips and totally kiss proof.

-*-


Number 22 is Pink Me, I think this is the pinkest of them all, beautiful and suitable for dates or afternoon day out, like a blooming spring color.

They are easily layered too, not that I need much, like one or two swipe is enough, the vivid pigment is full on color.

-*-


Now, aside from the other 6, these two's I must say is the most similar of them all. The others are like so different and like in totally another spectrum, while these two (above number 24. Nudy Classic and below 25. Nude Brown) is somewhat almost like a hint of depth. One is lighter (in shade) while number 25 is a pinch deeper.

-*-


Both nude are suitable for daily use, when you want to take things seriously or when in work.

Below is the swatches I made on my hand.

-*-


Each  of them looks so different from each other right?! Except for number 24 and 25.

From top to bottom on the swatches below:

21 Peach Angel, 22 Pink Me, 24 Nudy Classic, 25 Nude Brown, 26 Flaming Rose, 27 Exotic Red, 28 Apple Berry, 29 Sugar Plum.

-*-


I'm so into the last numbers, they are making statements, bold and brave. In the image above you can also easy the strikes made by the liquid, the pigment are strong and so does the coverage.

-*-


Let's continue with Flaming Rose, shade number 26. So bright, so red, and so beautiful. It's a shade that will brighten up the whole complexion or even your whole day.

-*-



27. Exotic Red, deeper with perhaps a hint of blue, and so powerful. It's a red that you will use it to work and be the boss.

-*-

And shade number 27, my favorite, Apple Berry. The shade that reminds me of the smell of the products. They all have the same scent, Apple Berry scent, so fruity and a bit sweet. Like apple berry :D

I love this shade since it's intense, deep, and definitely make a statement for sure. Far from boring and it's all me. I even overdrawn my lips for this shade and my lips looks great.

-*-


Last but not least, number 29. Sugar Plum. A dark version of fuchsia, perfect for a cocktail meeting or even a summer look.

So there you go all occasions, all time favorite, seasons, all are covered by QL Cosmetic Lip Cream Matte. You'll surely find one you love. Do try one and enjoy the light feeling of like using none.

The waterproof, kiss-proof formula is addictive, easy to clean using cotton pad and micellar water or any other lipstick remover, or using your favorite lip balms. Olive oils or any oil (like when you eat) will dissolve the formula, so careful when you eat as it will affect your lip makeup, do reapply as needed after each meals.

Thank you so much QL Cosmetic for another lovely product not to be missed.

Moeta Pop Devil Color Treatment Ampoule



Hello lovelies,

I found these babies by accident during a trip to Seoul. They are sold in one of subways underground stores and I didn't know that they are that good nor famous.

Apparently, they are pretty good, but I only bought two since I didn't aware, I got mine in soft pink and aquamarine.

-*-



The official shade name of the shade is Aqua Blue and Pink.

-*-


[MOETA] POP DEDEVIL COLOR TREATMENT - TOV12

They look super pretty right?! And as seen, it works best on bleached hair.

-*-


Almost all  the details in Korean, the basic how to is in English (glad isn't it?!) but the lady that sold me these babies share her tips, to leave them on longer than 15 minutes for a brighter and deeper hue.

-*-



Look carefully, it's 30 ml, I don't really pay attention as it clearly too little for the whole hair or even half, or even third... let's just say 30 ml is only for a handful and not a bit more.

-*-

The one I'm using for this post review is the pink one since my hair is already half white like a snow queen.

-*-



[MOETA] POP DEDEVIL COLOR TREATMENT - TOV12


I simply applied on my hair after being shampoo and toweled dry. So please do remember as it is too little for my whole hair, so it's only about a quarter of my whole hair. More like on the ends.

-*-


Here are the results on using the pink, looks really nice and many compliments me as having a cotton candy hair :D

The product is like a conditioner, milky pink, so the color is not bright pink like the result, it's more like baby pink. So does the Aqua Blue, the color of the cream is milky blue. The texture is like gel cream and not totally cream as in thick. They were light and like, well, conditioner.

The hair doesn't feel dry and taut, which is perhaps the benefits in using the product, all I wish is that I want some more please, I should've buy some more, like perhaps 5 tube for the whole head hair.

-*-


Conclusions:

In terms of texture and finish on the hair is wonderful as they don't made my hair dry, but in terms of too little inside their tube is really too less, I need like 100ml at least for a satisfying result, but for those who wants a rainbow colored hair with many different colors probably happy with the tiny tube.

The Body Shop 3 in 1 Brow Definer

Hello lovelies,

The Body Shop has recently comes up with major sale. I got some of the goodies from their online shop and absolutely love how their neatly put all the things safe and sound for the delivery. The Body Shop is known for their love to their customers and clearly seen on the details.

One of the things inside was a 3 in 1 Brow Definer which I happen to choose in shade Medium Brown.

-*-



What's 3 in 1? The one for the brow, arch, and brush. That's 3 things in one neat handy product easy for traveling or placed at home.

For me, the shade is perfect, I don't really want a black eyebrows that completely different from my colored hair, or something that too light.

-*-



The price of the product is Rp. 149.000. You are more than welcome to purchase it during sale :D

Thanks to it's 3 in 1 I can simply bring this one and get a perfect eyebrows which define, highlights and tidies up with it's brush. Most eyebrows product usually comes with the one that  color, from gel, pencil, or even mascara, this one are pencils, but in two tones to really help shape things up.

-*-




First, I started by marking, filling in, drawing the lines and made sure they are in shape. The pencil has a nice smooth texture and easy to color with. I love how it easily grasp on the hairs. This is crucial as they make the eyebrows look natural and not like coloring skin.

-*-


Gently brush the inner part to create a gradation or illusion that the eyebrows are sharp and darker on the outer sides.

Look at the images below on how I use the product.

-*-


The first image, where I'm holding my nude make gel (not the Brow Define) is the before. Then the next image on top right is me filling the colors, next (down left) highlighting and last but not least (bottom right) using the brush. The texture of both pencils (color and highlight) are so soft and easy for drawing in, I really like the consistency, the pencils are persistent. But they do need to be kept closed as I don't want them to be dried out and harden. The thing about these kinds of pencils are like pencil eyeliners, they are soft since they do contain liquid as in perhaps watery ingredients since it made them the way they did, a bit mushy.

-*-


And the result, is a shaped brow filled with color and well highlighted. The color is wonderful and last (as long I don't wiped them off), they are not waterproof but resist water, so don't get drenched in the rain or run a marathon as they will definitely get off. So, if you happen to have an active normal life where you indoors most of the time, this should be just fine.

Vichy Idealia Lumiere

Hello lovelies,

these babies are a relatively a new items in the Vichy Singapore, a place where I bought them a few months back. Vichy itself is one of my favorite brand from France that provide beautiful skincare. I love their moisturizers, gel masks and so on.

-*-

These are some of products I have, but the stuffs that I'm reviewing in this post is only the Idealia Lumiere. The ones that I felt most interested at the moment since Idealia is a line made for 30's, which is my age right now.

It's the series that helps fighting dullness, large pores and uneven skin tone, the first signs of aging.

-*-

Apart from what I mentioned above, my skin is also dry, which is why, again, I choose Vichy Idealia since they do care for dehydration too, plus still in the heart of Vichy, they also contains mineralizing thermal water that contains necessary elements in keeping the skin stronger and in better condition.

-*-

You can get the moisturizer alone or like me, with the serum as well, since I don't think I can get over serums. They are made to marvel, lighter in texture but packed in things that I really need and essential for the skin.

-*-


All the details from how to, ingredients and what we expected from the product is listed in full information for anyone to see. So you can be sure there's no surprise, or may I say, unpleasant surprise later, just make sure you do read all the data, just in case you might have some allergies to one or some of the ingredients.

Aside from that, Vichy Idealia Lumiere comes in a lovely soft pink hue, it is hard to missed since it is probably the only series in Vichy that comes in pink. It is said that the effects of using them would create a charming rosy glow, this is really a trend among Asian with yellowish tone.

-*-


I am Asian and I do have fair yellowish tone, I don't mind my skin tone whatsoever but I do like to see how I am in rosy tone, perhaps they'll made me looks better.

Before we get to the review, let's see the details from the brand start from the moisturizer.

-*-

SENSORIALITY acclaimed by WOMEN
Translucent emulsified gel very fresh and comfortable.
It is inspired from hydration formula, really breakthrough for whitening range.

Use as a moisturizer in the day.


-*-

Amazing isn't it?! The result are seen and felt within a month, that's pretty fast for a skincare product, a drugstore brand to be exact. The formula has a rich creamy yet light texture which I can use day (and night too). I don't feel any greasy nor oily side effect, just comforts and love those hydrating agents. My skin enjoys the softening effects too, they made my skin appear more relaxed, calm and there's this lovely, in-love-like radiant glow.

Good news for healthy minded people, their product is paraben free, hypoallergenic and best of all, non comedogenic. Do you know that using bad products can gives you comedo, acne and even irritate the skin? So do use ones that are known for being safe and effective at the same time. Never go and sought products that doesn't comes with safety standards or your skin will pay for it.

As for me, Vichy is a guarantee of a high quality product made with safety and care in hand.

-*-


And Idealia Lumiere is a range that is so perfect for me right now, it have all the needed basic for a 30's like me, from the texture, brightness, anti dullness, moisture, to this amazing radiant without any guilt that they will clogged the pores nor paraben.

Adding the brilliance of the product, I use the serum as well, just before the moisturizer.

-*-

SENSORIALITY acclaimed by WOMEN Rosy, light and fluid jellified texture. Very easy to spread and quick to penetrate. Skin is immediately more even, soft and velvety. 24 hour hydration***.
***Hydration test made with a corneometer

Apply a few drops of serum in the morning and night to cleansed skin. Smooth gently from the middle of the face, in an outward direction. For maximum effect, follow with Idealia Lumiere's moisturisers.-*-



The serum is of course, lighter, runnier, and easier to be taken by the skin. So I clean my skin really well, use a toner or softening water or face mist, and this serum. It's a watery gel in texture and has a similar scent with the moisturizer, soft floral.

They both are made to be used with each other. They compliment each other, one prep the skin with abundance of ingredients that

Recharge the skin with Peony root and Vichy pH Balancing Thermal Water to energize fatigue skin for hydrated rosy glow in gel like form which is so lighter and the other in creams that seals the deals. So one works by penetrating into the skin while the other on the surface.

-*-

The result is everything you see in my skin. Soft, radiant, moist, supple and a hint of rosy glow which I find to be a nice surprise. A brightening product usually stuck on being so fair and pale, while this one is making the skin appears happy with a hint of blush.

Conclusion, definitely products that I'd recommend.
