Make Up For Ever Step 1 Smoothing Primer

Helllooooo... Happy holiday guys! Are you going somewhere? Or you prefer to stay at home? Or maybe you are like me, who have to work when people going on holidays and have holidays when people get to work? I'm working in hospitality industry so I won't have Easter, Idul Fitri, School, Summer, Christmas, and New Year holidays. 

But, I have spare time this morning. And I can't wait to show you about this thing. The Make Up Forever Step 1 Smoothing Primer. There are so many choices of Step 1 according to your concern, but my first pick is absolutely the Smoothing because of my large pores and bad textures.

I bought this around one year ago. That explains the dirty packaging. I keep the box, but I totally forget where I put it. So stupid. Hahaha.. There should be more explaination in the box. So this time, please refer to the official website of Make Up For Ever if you want to know more about ingredients etc.

The first time I saw it in counter, the BA tried on her face and this looks amazing. It smoothes the skin immediately and in seconds I put it inside the basket without trying on myself.

It almost like Benefit Porefessional, but personally I like this one more. The texture is lighter and the result is better on me. I don't feel sticky or stickery when using this. There is also no intense perfume on the product.

If you never tried Benefit Porefessional, I will explain it simply. The texture is like a cream, but a bit bouncy. When applied to skin, it helps to create smooth texture and cover the pores. What it does is to even the texture so you have a good canvas as a base of your make up. It does not smudge throughout the day so it is perfectly safe to use for important events. The good thing it covers the pores but not clogging them. There is no pimples or whatsoever after using it for few days in a row as long as I do a good cleaning in the end of the day.

You can see it from the comparison picture. My skin looks a lot smoother and my pores becomes not too visible and not to mention also looks more brighter isn't it? I don't wear primer often, but when it comes to urgent thing, like party, I guess I need this!

Thank you for reading.

Christmas Dinner : Cooking, Baking, and Unboxing

Merry Christmas Everyone! Ho ho ho...

Do you celebrate Christmas too? How do you celebrate? We (I and my husband) celebrate at home, just two of us. Our big family never held a Christmas party. 

We decorate the Christmas Tree and have dinner in the living room. This year, we made homecooked burger and mix grilled veggies and also chocolate drink for refreshment. We did not plan the dinner menu, so the ingredients are basically anything left in the fridge. And that what makes it even more meaningful.

I have baked Pandan Ogura Cake. It is so fluffy, soft and low in calories. I took the risk since this is my first Ogura and I am amateur. Baking a new type of cake is not easy when we are not so expert. Each and every oven is different. When the recipe says 170degrees 50minutes, it becomes 170degrees 70minutes and the surface not turning brown, I need to adjust the temperature to 220degrees for another 10minutes. Luckily it is au bain marie so the result is still so moist and yummy eventhough it is not perfect. Next time I need to do experiment with the temp.

No party without a gift, LOL. Actually I have some stuffs from my husband and I haul some too, but the goodies are not arrived on time. Well, let's spare for another post. Now, let me share the gift from my lovely fellow beauty blogger Winda ( 

This is my second time changing Christmas gift with her. The first time was last year, you can read about it here. Let's peek what Santa Winda sent to me:

1. It's My Cushion. I always want this DIY Cushion. I think it will be really useful to mix and match my holygrail inside this cushion to save time in applying make up. Winda knows it and she bought one for me.

2. Skinfood My Short Cake Eyeshadow Trio
3. Etude House 3 Step Volumecara
4. Beauty People Gel Eyeliner Pencil
5. Hope Girl Wonder Magic Mascara
6. Lioele Dollish Eyeshadow Triple

7. Majolica Majorca Honey Pump Lipgloss
8. Etude House Color Pop Shine Tint
9. Canmake Candy Wrap Lip
10. Holika Holika Heartful Moisture Lipstick

All these Korean and Japanese Beauty Products are so beautiful and I'm so thankful for these presents. Thank you so much Winda for thoughtfully picking them for me.

In the last part, I want to say happy birthday to sweet Jesus. I'm so thankful that You're born and die for us. I will always be grateful.

Now, cheers to everybody! Have a Holy Jolly Christmas!

L.A. Girl Color Pop Nail Polish Snapped

I'm a nail art lover since I was in highschool. My mom is a nail polish lover and like mom like daughter. I love doing my friends' nails and I even did my own wedding nail few years ago.

Currently I'm not into nail art anymore because of some reason after I get married. But sometimes, I really miss doing this. So when I was asked to try LA Girl Color Pop Nail Polish, I was beyond excited.

There are a lot of color choices, but mine is definitely Snapped! Look at that color. So hawttt isn't it? It contains 14ml of products, well that's a lot! The bottle is easy to grab and the brush size is just perfect for application.

The liquid is not clumpy and applied smoothly with or without base. The best thing is: it dries super fast. Everything is settled under 5 mins. It last about a week on me (with countless office and housewife tasks). Yep, pretty nice.

Now I'm curious about another color, will they as good as snapped? 

Thank you for reading.

Emina Lip Shine Cerise Red

Hello again! I'm coming back with another Emina product. It is about Lip Shine. Let say this is a lipgloss. So far I quite like Emina products, so let's hope this one is as good as the other.

The packaging is made from sturdy plastic with applicator attached to the cap. The tube is so tiny, cute and travel friendly. The length is just a bit longer than my middle finger.

The color is soft nude pink and create a gorgeous natural color when applied. The applicator is good enough for me and user friendly. It is nice to use alone or on top of another lipstick to create plump effect and to make it glossier.

It has vanilla scent that is luckily not so strong according to my liking. The texture is not too sheer and not too bold and (again) luckily not sticky. I don't like wearing lipgloss because of that stickiness, but this one is no problem.

I'm impressed with Emina products. The quality is not that bad and the price is increeeddibly cheap. Want to try them too?

Thanks for reading.

Emina Oh So Kissable Cherry Pie

Hi everyone! After the BB Cream and the Blush review and swatch last time, now I am going to review this Oh So Kissable lipstick.

My first impression is definitely the price. It is incredibly cheap even for students. So let's see. Is it satisfying enough?

The packaging is cute. It is small and pink and girly. Not my type but certainly will be loved by many girls out there. It is made from plastic and has letters printed on the case.

I have the shade 05 Cherry Pie which is the bright red with slightly orange undertone. It contains 3.4g of product.

It is so bright, opaque and buttery. It does not dry my lips at all.. It is not transferproof or smudgeproof so I need to be a princess while using this (read: sit and behave nicely, otherwise there will be a total mess). It lasts for 3 hours before fading (without eating and drinking), but it leaves nice stain until the end of the day. It's like I change from bold lippie to liptint in few hours. 

I could say that this lipstick should be considered among the affordable and cheap local product when you want to add new item in your collection.

Thank you for reading.
