Estee Lauder 'Beautiful Eyes' Workshop

Hi girls!

Last weekend I had my FIRST ever beauty workshop.
Exciting stuff hey? I was invited as a guest beauty blogger alongside with the talented @auraure from Instagram to demonstrate Estee Lauder's latest campaign which is 'Beautiful Eyes' at Atrium Sogo Plaza Senayan.


Pretty stoked!

The workshop went on smoothly, a summary of the workshop:

So first before demonstrate the look on a volunteer from the base (skincare) to the point makeup, focusing on eyes and lips - I briefly explained about how important it is to keep a healthy skin and how to prevent breakouts. It is a good foundation because before makeup there is always skin - as the quote says ' Makeup is only as good as the skin underneath'.





I also finished the look by showing the attendees how to properly put on false lashes and give them free Lavie Lash falsies for them to try at home!

There were lots of free vouchers from Estee Lauder to give away to spend on that day - so it was pretty fun! 

Overall the event was a success, hope to see you girls again on my next event!

Thank you fimela and Estee Lauder for having me!

Love,
x

Urban Decay Shattered Face Case & Smoked Palette Swatches & Review

Hello babies!

I managed to get my hands on these 2 palettes from Urbay Decay last weekend, all thanks to my big sister! She went to Singapore for a short trip and I asked her to pick up some stuff for me from Sephora!

Originally I wanted the NAKED 3 Palette (because everyone seems to have it already), but unfortunately they are all SOLD OUT! How crazy is that! Well I guess next time. So she got me these palettes instead. Sweet!

Urban Decay Shattered Face Case



Love the packaging! Very sturdy but it's not heavy at all.
The mirror top is cute, but I can already imagine it would be full of fingerprint soon :P

The coolest thing about this all-in-one palette is that you get all the basic shadows and three cheek colour s with an Urban Decay 24/7 travel size eyeliner and Urban Decay Super Saturated Lip Color in LOVECHILD. Handy!

Let's open drawer number 1!
I can see that I would reach to this palette often because of the wearable colours! Especially the purple :)


And here's the bottom drawer.
You get two cheek colours (LOVE) and one highlighter colour.
Again, super wearable and nicely pigmented.


Here are the swatches of the eyeshadows, lightly applied on the back of my hand.


My verdict?
Review: 3.5/5

Not a must have, but it's a pretty palette.
I love that they put the Urban Decay 24/7 Liner as it's one of my favourite pencil eyeliner. (review soon)

On to the next palette!

Urban Decay Smoked Palette


A very sexy and sleek packaging, wrapped in fabric and very sturdy.



Nice variation of colours that complement each other. Consists of four matte eyeshadows and six shimmery eyeshadows. I particularly like the shades 'Loaded', 'Mushroom', and 'Asphalt'.


Here are the swatches (lightly applied with no base):



Verdict? 3.5/5
Again not a must have, but loving the shimmer shadows.

Toodaloo!

GlamGlow Youthmud Tinglexfoliate Mud Mask Review

Hi girls!

New year, new blogpost! How about that!
Sorry for the little absence lately, but today I am going to do a short review the Glamglow Youthmud Tinglexfoliate Mud Mask! I got it as a Christmas pressie, but you can also get it here in Indonesia (details at the bottom of this post)



A bit of background extracted from their website:

GLAMGLOW was created and founded by Glenn and Shannon Dellimore for exclusive behind the scenes use in Hollywood's entertainment, music, fashion and award industries, especially as pre-makeup to get camera ready glowing skin. It is made in California and now is available in 52 countries. The product is made for man and women with natural ingredients with the combination of TEAOXI technology and French Sea Clay , that will give you a delightful TINGLE sensation and giving you an amazing 3 days glow.

Their claims:

  • Leaves skin noticeably radiant and glowing. 
  • Activates moisturizing collagen synthesis. 
  • Provides gentle resurfacing exfoliation. 
  • Helps to leave skin smoother, brighter and softer. 
  • Provides tighter skin texture and tighter pores. 
  • Helps to provide a more youthful appearance. 
  • Absorbs impurities without removing natural oils. 
  • Helps to protect against free radical damage. 
Key Ingredient:

TEAOXI™ is GLAMGLOW’s proprietary continuous time-release technology, delivering daily fresh Super-Squalene, EGCG Super-Antioxidants & Polyphenols direct into the mud from the real pieces of tea leaf contained in our mask. TEAOXI™ is the ‘magic’ behind our powerful anti-aging and anti wrinkle results.


Other Key Ingredients:
  • Real green tea leaf pieces: brighten complexion, protects against free-radicals, hydrates the skin and balances oil
  • Volcanic minerals: lighten under-eye dark circle , detoxifies, and awakens skin
  • Ivy: improve skin elasticity, tightens and lifts, provides extended tigthtening effect
  • Cucumber: anti-inflammatory, helps to heal skin, soothes and calms the skin
  • Comfrey Herb: creates youger looking complexion and speeds cell regeneration
  • Lavender: heal breakouts, natural anti-bacterial, and anti-inflammatory
  • Chamomile and marigold floweranti-platelet properties, fights skin issues and anti-microbial.


How to use:
  1. Stir the product around with your clean fingers (or in my case a foundation paddle brush) 
  2. Apply a thin layer on a clean face
  3. Wait for 10-15 minutes until it dries.
  4. ENJOY THE GLORIOUS TINGLING sensation. I do like products with a tingling feeling.. I have a problem.
  5. Wash it off by gently massaging your face with lukewarm water.
  6. All done!

My Review:


Freshly applied!


After 10-15 minutes I look like Hulk.


Love love love the packaging, very heavy duty and nicely put together. They also put a very handy booklet with various detailed information about the mask's ingredient. You get brownie points from me for the packaging design, GlamGlow!

I LOVE the smell of this mask. Very soothing tea scent and it's not overpowering. I have been using this mask once a week (I might need to use it twice a week now since I love it so much) and noticed an instant change. My pores feel tighter, and overall complexion is brighter.

My redness and bumps are also significantly reduced, and my face is less oily during the day. I am sure I will get awesome results if I keep on using this mask for the next months or so.. :) but even if the effects weren't there, I would still enjoy this mask because it's so much fun putting it on and it was very soothing!

Overall.... 4/5! I am very pleased with this products and will definitely purchase it again in the future.

Where can I get this product in Indonesia?

GlamGlow is available to purchase at BEAUTYBOX retail store located in:
  1. Grand Indonesia West Mall
  2. Paris Van Java Bandung
  3. Kota Kasablanka LG
  4. Trans Studio Mall Makassar
GlamGlow Youthmud Tinglexfoliate Mud Mask retails for IDR 760,000 for 50ml.

Thanks for reading, please try this mask and let me know what you think!
