Be Who You Want To Be With Lactacyd Herbal

When I was little my dad would always push me to dream big and to really go for it. “You have to be an independent woman kakak, jangan tegantung dengan siapa-siapa.” Those words echoed in my head and it gives me the drive to reach my dreams until now.

Sometimes we would be so focused on our goals sampai terkadang kita lupa untuk memerhatikan diri sendiri. Salah satunya memerhatikan kebersihan tubuh kita. Honestly, aku kalau lagi ngedit video, atau filming, I am so focused I lose sight of everything else. Bisa sampai lupa makan, kasih makan kucing, ngepel, nyapu dan mandi. Yes, I know. nasty bruh. Which is why I’m happy that Female Daily invited me to their recent event which focuses on the launching of Lactacyd Herbal.

Lactacyd is an international brand untuk pembersih kewanitaan yang terpercaya and now they have a new formula which is the Lactacyd Herbal. They are dermatologically tested and you can use it daily.

As a woman we gotta take care of *cough* you know, down there. yes, our vajayjay, or honey pot, vag, snatch, whatever you want to call your lady bits. I gave mine a nickname and her name is Viola. Its just a must because paling ngga enak tuh kalau kita lagi beraktifitas and we’re not in perfect condition. We are strong, career driven, independent women, but when shit is going down under there, it’s definitely gonna be a struggle. like, Houston, I think we got a problem.

Nah, this is where Lactacyd Herbal comes to the rescue. After trying it out for a couple of days, I can say that things have been going really smooth down there. I feel fresh, clean, and ready to take on the world. I believe that you have to feel your best to be the best and Lactacyd Herbal does exactly that for me. The awesome thing about the Lactacyd Herbal is that it contains natural ingredients such as ekstrak sirih, ekstrak mawar, dan ekstrak susu yang membersihkan, melembut dan merawat area V kita. I mean, who doesn’t want a clean but also beautiful lookin’ vagina?! Shut up and take my money Lactacyd! you got me HOOKED! Not to mention it has a really pleasant scent. yas.

Treat Your Sensitive Skin Talkshow with Female Daily and The Body Shop

Hello everyone! today I want to share my experience with you about an event that I went to recently that was held by Female Daily and one of my favorite stores, The Body Shop.

I use to be careless about my own skin. Even when I started wearing make-up I didn’t really payed attention much and I did not know that our real ‘foundation’ was our skin. When you take care of your skin, you will most likely look great even without make-up. whether it is your facial skin or body skin.

We all have different skin types, and just as the title says, the event focuses on how to take care of sensitive skin and also an introduction to The Body Shop’s new skincare line!.  I learned new things about what to do and what not to do for sensitive skin and I am very grateful to be able to join this talkshow!

The event was held at Central Park Mall in the restaurant 6 Degrees. I loved how rustic the design of the event is, of course it’s The Body Shop. There will always be an element of nature. Another thing that I love about them.

DSC08753.JPG

DSC08754.JPG

Love the decorations! and you must be wondering what is inside that bottle! it is Almond Milk! and it is honey that is in the jar beside it. So can you guys guess what ingredients are in The Body Shop’s new skincare line? 🙂 yup, Almond Milk and Honey! yum!.

We were able to try out the almond milk. Well, it was alright for me. wasn’t my favorite but still drinkable lol.

IMG_7152.JPG

IMG_7151.JPG

Had this for lunch. After we ate the talkshow finally started

DSC08804.JPG

DSC08806.JPG

The talkshow started off by telling us what exactly is sensitive skin. sensitive skin is skin that easily gets irriated by products and factors that is usually harmless towards normal skin. They showed us the difference of how normal skin and sensitive skin looks like

Sensitive-Skin.jpg

We were also informed on how to handle sensitive skin.

  • Drink water, 8 glasses a day to keep hydrated inside and out of your body
  • Fix your showering habits
  • Protect skin from UV rays by using sunscreen
  • Use moisturizer on a daily basis

Benefits of Almond Milk and Honey for sensistive skin:

Almond Milk:

  • a Rich source of Vitamin E, which is an Anti-oxidant. Anti-oxidants protects your skin from free radicals that can damage your skin. This also help prevent damage from sun exposure.
  • Has anti-aging qualities.
  • Natural oil regulator

Honey:

  • anti-bacterial
  • Full of anti-oxidants same as Almond Milk, also has anti-aging benefits
  • extremely moisturizing, gives you that Glowy complexion
  • anti-inflammatory

IMG_7158.JPG

So now I definitely know that these ingredients are a perfect match to help sensitive skin ❤

A mini review of the products:

I loved how mild and calming the scent is! My favorite product out of all the skincare would be the body lotion! it easily seeps into your skin and is lightweight. My skin definitely felt moisturized and I could see some glow afterwards.

After the talkshow we had a mini crafting workshop. Using recycled packaging from The Body Shop. They gave us crafting tools and it was a fun workshop. Mine definitely not the best but its something lol

IMG_7570.JPG

IMG_7571.JPG

My hands look so vainy. weird

I may have not won the best crafting design contest, BUT I did won best Instagram post! yays! so there was a flatlay instagram post, testimonial contest (we had to write a testimonial on paper about The Body Shop’s Almond Milk and Honey Skincare line after trying them out during the event) and this crafting design contest.

So that’s it for todays post! I hope that you enjoyed reading it, and thank you to Female Daily and The Body Shop for inviting me to this fun event!

ESQA Cosmetics

Hellooooow! Today I have some lippie goodies I want to review for you guys! yes, it is from ESQA Cosmetics! ESQA Cosmetics is launching their Satin Lip Colors and Matte Lip Liquid. Before moving on as always let me put info on where you can contact them and learn more about them 🙂 Btw Esqa Cosmetics is now available exclusively in www.sephora.co.id and get your free shipping when you spend above Rp 200.000!

dsc05487
Okay let’s start with the packaging and what colors did I actually get :

Lip Satin Colors:

-Twisted Nude
-Darling Pink

Matte Lip Liquid:
-Forbidden Red
-Dusty Pink

Here is what the box packaging looks like for all the lippies:

Here are the swatches from left to right is Twisted Nude, Darling Pink, Forbidden Red, and Dusty Pink

dsc05490

From Left to Right: Darling Pink, Twisted Nude, Dusty Pink, Forbidden Red
(Real women has peach fuzz. deal wit it lol)

Now onward to the review!

Let’s start with the Matte Lip Liquid shall we. No we gonna do this TO DA POINT style 😉

Texture: Creamy
Color pay off: really pigmented, one swipe is all you need
Scent: It has a sweet cream kind of smell but it still has a slight chemical smell in it too
Does it transfer? : when it dries it slightly transfers
Hows the longevity? : It will fade if you eat anything
Is it sticky? : Yes it is quite sticky
Drying?: yes, it can be drying but if you wear lip balm on your lips beforehand it is bearable but can feel super drying if your lips are naturally dry
lip lines accentuated?: Yes but not too-too much
Packaging design? : YAS (this means good lol)

Moving on to the Satin Lip Crayons

Texture: Soft, slightly greasy
Color pay off: pigmented, but sheer and can be streaky. you need to build it up. 3 coats oke
Scent: Smells like crayons
Does it transfer? : yes
Hows the longevity? : Fades quite easily because of the greasy factor
Is it sticky? : a teeny tiny bit
Drying?: Nope! comfortable on the lips
lip lines accentuated?: Nope!
Packaging design? : YAS
Notes: I love how the product is retractable. design is beautiful and comfortable on the lips

Overall I really liked the Matte Lip Liquid. I love both of the colors but I love them even more when they are combined! They create this rustic red because of the dusty pink underneath the forbidden red. I would be really interested in finding out the rest of the colors for these lippies. I hope you guys enjoyed my review and that it was helpful!

Toodles!

DSC02341_1The product is shielded with a transparent plastic with the ULTIMA II logo that you can remove

DSC02342_1If you open the packaging, there is another compartment and when you open it you can see that they also give you a blush brush which is really nice, though I rarely use applicators that are given in a make-up product.

DSC02348_1
DSC02349_1
After feeling the bristles, I felt like it was a bit too harsh for the skin but it still works well for application. Blending with this brush may be also a bit difficult because of how packed in density it is.

Blushes:

REVIEW:
TEXTURE:
-Semi creamy, but the shine blushes are creamier than the matte ones.

PIGMENTATION:
-SUPER pigmented. These blushes are the kinds where you only need a little to go a long way which is great. Seriously, their pigmentation is NO JOKE xD be careful you might easily use too much. They are also really buildable ❤

LONGEVITY:
-Lasts all day long 😀

CONCLUSION:

All in all I love the blushes, you get a lot in one pan and you also get a nice and wonderful mirror plus a blush brush. For the packaging, I like the look of a mirror type packaging but because of that it can get dirtier easily and you can see all your fingerprints. When you swatch with your fingers, there are no fall outs whatsoever, but when you use a blush, there are some but only so slightly which I love. I love Sahara Rose the most out of all of them because it gives you such a “glowing from within” look and you know I gotta get my glow on 😉 These blushes are also easy to blend if you make sure that you use it layer by layer and after trying all of them out, I conclude that they have proven all of their claims. So does the blushes get Meggy’s stamp of approval? DEFINITELY.

By the way, do you guys know what time it is?

Yup it’s lipstick time (please excuse my lame jokes)

SWATCHES:

From Left to right: Apricot, Ruby, Fuchsia, Plum
All lipstick shades

REVIEW:
TEXTURE: Ultra soft feeling on the lips when you apply it. Creamy and very hydrating and has a shiny finish.

PIGMENTATION: Rich in color, pigmentation was fine but it is not super pigmented right off the bat of the first application. It is a buildable color pigmentation type, but even though it is, it took a lot of swipes to get to a bold, solid pigment. It can be a bit hard to get strong pigmentation if you have dark areas around your lips because even with a lot of swipes, I could still see a slight sight of the darker areas of my lips which is around the outer part of my lips through the pigment.

LONGEVITY: Not long at all. I think because of how much moisture is in these lipsticks, it is super transferable. As soon as I drank water, or ate something, POOF! It’s gone with the wind. You won’t be able to make-out with your partner with this lipstick on unless you like dem messy. I love how hydrating and comfortable it is on my lips but I always have the worry of having it transfer to my clothes or anything around it because I just know it’s going to smudge with just the slightest touch.

CONCLUSION:
I look for great longevity and high pigmentation in a lipstick and this lipstick didn’t really reach my expectations. I do appreciate how comfortable it is on the lips and how it glides so well during application but for me personally I like my lipsticks to be long lasting, budge proof, but still comfortable at the same time. Doesn’t have to be super comfortable, it’s okay to be drying but not so drying that I feel like my lips are the Sahara desert.

MAKE-UP LOOKS
Here I had so much fun mixing and matching the blushes and lipsticks in my make-up look 😀 and I do love the outcome of it!
IMG_4901_1
Hot pink Delicate Matte Blush with Fuchsia Delicate Lipstick. I created more of an ombre lip look for this one. ❤
IMG_4903_1
LOVE this one! Baked Coral blush with Apricot lipstick! ❤
IMG_4920_1
Sahara rose blush with Plum lipstick ❤
IMG_4936_1
Nude blush with Ruby lipstick ❤

All the blushes made my make-up have that subtle radiant look which I love and the lipsticks go so well with the blushes. I do recommend pairing Baked coral blush with apricot lipstick for a fresh and cheerful look! Perfect for the summer!
Tell me, which look is your favorite? ^_^

ICE by Exoticon

ICE, ICE, BABY YEAH!

Ever heard of that oldies song by Vanilla Ice? No? okay, nevermind. I thought it would be appropriate for todays post. Just continue reading then lol.

So who is ready for more x2 contact lenses? I know I am! Today I have another contact lens line from Exoticon and I am happy to be back from Japan and finally here with you all again. It is the ICE line which is separated in two types, the ICE silver and ICE gold. Maybe you have predicted that the colors of the lenses will rotate around the color silver and gold, well, you are absolutely correct. For the ICE silver, we have Silver Grey 01, Silver Light Grey 03, and Silver Cloudy Grey 02. The ICE gold consists of only 2 types; Gold Hazel 01 and Gold Honey Brown 02.

PACKAGING:
The packaging was really nice and sleek, the box felt like a doff finish and the flowers were embossed. I really like the design of the logo and the box design itself. It is very elegant and nice.

DSC02296_1

I was sent one variant of both ICE silver and ICE gold. I got the ICE Silver Light Grey and the ICE Gold Hazel 01. After checking them out, I concluded that I seriously LOVED the ICE Silver Light Grey because of how stunning and eye catching it is.It doesn’t have an outer ring and kinda fades out too and blends into the eyes which makes it so natural looking.

DSC02465_1
DSC02454_1

I’m not too fond with the Gold Hazel one though because of the pattern, and I am also not used to wearing gold-ish type of contact lenses. It doesn’t have an outer ring though which is nice and if you like lenses that enlarges your eyes, maybe this is for you :). As for comfortness, I would say both of them have high amount of comfort. When I wear them for the whole day, my eyes did not get dry easily unlike other lenses that I have tried from different brands.

Tell me, which one would you go for? ^_^ I would like to thank Exoticon for sending me these lenses and I am happy to add them to my contact lens collections ❤

I’ll talk to you again soon guys!

Lots of meggy love to you! ❤

DSC00894.JPG
WITHOUT their eye shadow primer

I do not have a picture of it, but I had these swatches with the eye shadow primer on my hand for the whole day. it lasted until the next morning and I had to rub it off with water and with makeup remover to completely clean my arm so longevity of the shadows lasts really long. at least for swatches.

DSC00886.JPG
DSC00887.JPG
DSC00882.JPG

Texture and Scent of the primer:
-Smells like playdough but nothing too much. just a slight scent
-Creamy and somewhat easy to blend
-really makes your eye shadows even more pigmented!

Applicator

DSC00883.JPG
Yeah I don’t really use this :/ 


PROS

-pigmented shadows!
-great lip and eye primer!
-great colors!
-creamy texture!
-easy to blend yo! 

CONS
-not a travel friendly product because of it’s bulky packaging

So that’s it for the review, I hope that you find this helpful, and help you decide if you want to purchase this or not. for me personally I LURVE it. such a great product to add to my eye shadow collection. Thank you Studiomakeup once again! ❤

 

Studiomakeup Easter Sister Competition <3

Studiomakeup recently had a competition a couple weeks ago and it was one of the most fun make-up competitions I have tried so far 😀

12424767_1718767545005361_976478140_n.jpg

After seeing this on their Instagram I immediately contacted no other than my BFF for life Janine to join!

BpDirGXIAAAv1H-.jpg
Exactly my face when I saw the flyer lol

And their NUDES palette seems so interesting and promising. It does look like Urban Decay’s Naked palette and I mean who doesn’t love natural nude eye shadows? 😀

At first the last submission was on April 27th but they decided to extend the deadline to March 31st. Janine and I met up in Grand Indonesia where the competition was held at the coffee bean first because I arrived first and I wanted to grab a snack. Next time I’ll try to find a cheaper alternative lol. After Janine finally arrived and met up with me in coffee bean, we head out to Studiomakeup’s store.

We were given a chance to use all the tester products that they had which was one of the most fun parts of this competition because we are both makeup junkies and trying out new products was bomb ❤

IMG_3492.JPG
Some of the base make-up that I used

We had to take a before and after picture of the both of us and also a picture of us doing make-up together.

IMG_3518.JPG
We were trying so hard not to laugh and tried to look MODELESQUE and GOGIRL like. Had to stare at Janines forehead to stop laughing haha

IMG_3519.JPG
IMG_3550.JPG

We actually forgot to take our picture together while we were there so we went back to the place lol. We only remembered to take the before and after picture ^^”

IMG_3558.JPG

Then after waiting for the deadline to pass and a week later, *drumroll pleaseeeee*

12724984_495845557271500_1446728586_n.jpg

*SQUEEL* ❤ ❤ ❤ NUDES palette come to mama! xD xD

We won! each of us will receive our very own NUDES palette, thank you Studiomakeup for choosing us as the winners!

11eba44b4dee85843d5e2d5b2a4f32bdb7ced69d22c565e911d557162726781e.jpg
OOOHHH YEAH you go Freddie Mercury

We both had a blast doing this competition especially since we’re doing this together and having fun with your best friend is one of the greatest things in life ❤

I will definitely be writing a review on the palette itself, super excited as well so please do stay tune! thanks for visiting guys! Much meggy love to you! ❤

My X2 Diary by Exoticon

Hey you! yes, you 😉 If you’re a contact lens wearer, you might like the ones I am about to review for you. Today I am excited to review Exoticon’s new contact lens line which is the “My X2 Diary“. I got sent 2 colors and 1 extra type of contact lens which is the x2Bio but today I’m going to focus more on the “My X2 Diary“.

DSC00544_1.jpg

Just look how cute the packaging is! Just like the name they made the packaging just like a diary book. I have worn different kinds of contact lenses and this one has the most creative and cutest packaging ever! props to Exoticon on the packaging design!

DSC00561_1.jpg

You open it up just like a book and you can see your lenses inside in the bottles ❤

DSC00539_1.jpg

You can flip the page that sticks onto the cover inside and in the paper it is the instructions and details of the contact lenses

DSC00528.JPG

Once you take out the bottles, there is another folded paper inside (it’s like a secret note hihi) it’s the same instructions but in Indonesian.

Now before I go into detail of the review, I want to show you guys the brochure that they sent me in the package.

DSC00714_1
DSC00715_1
DSC00717_1.jpg
DSC00718_1.jpg
DSC00720_1.jpg

So you can see that there are 9 colors in total and I got the Royal Blue and Lemon Tea 🙂

Now, on to the review!

Let’s start with Lemon Tea. I was a bit hesitant with this one because I have never tried a yellow tone soft lens before but I had a feeling I might like it because it might look bright (I am currently liking bright contact lens at the moment 😀 )

DSC00616_1.jpg

DSC00632.JPG

After trying it on, I actually liked the color. and I love how it makes my eyes brighter. My boyfriend likes this one as well which is a PLUS haha.

Royal Blue

DSC00659_1.jpg

DSC00677.JPG

Yas. I also like the Royal blue one. Why? because it makes me look BULE lol. The blue looks bright in good natural light so that is also a PLUS.

And for fun and in case you are planning on buying this,X2 Bio Four in Purple Extravagance

DSC00562.JPG

DSC00692_1.jpg

This one right hurr isn’t as bright as the last two and from afar you can’t really see the purple-ness, but it gives you bigger looking eyes and I have not had contact lenses that are wide in diameter so I’m also glad to have this one to my contact lens collection 🙂

So in conclusion, all in all they feel comfortable to wear. I have had a history of wearing X2 lenses and some you could still feel like you have something on your eye as you wear them but this series it feels like your natural eye. There is no feeling as if you have put a foreign object inside your eye which is great. very comfortable, super cute packaging, nice colors, it’s definately meggy approved!

I’d like to thank X2 Softlens for sending me these lenses, it was a fun experience trying these out 🙂

Okay everyone that is it for today’s post, thanks so much for visiting! lots of meggy love! ❤

Gizi Secret Of Seaweed Skincare Product Reviews

Hellooooow everyone! I know I have been gone for a long a** time and I apologize, but I am back with my second post about a review for the Gizi Secret of Seaweed products. If you have sensitive skin, you might want to read about these products right here. I have three products to review; they are the Daily Natural Lightening Foam, Daily Nutrition Cream with SPF 18, and the Daily Nutrition Cream. You can check out their website right here . You can buy these products in Super Indo, Kimia Farma, Tip Top, Dan+Dan, Borma Toserba, Mirota Kampus, Pamelia Supermarket, and Alfamart in the Jawa and Bali region.

Their website, and social media handles in case y’all wanna get in on them:
Website: http://www.giziindonesia.co.id

IMG_1040.JPG

So, before I go into details about these products one by one, let us look at the delivery and the packaging. These products were securely bubble wrapped, which I think was nice. It came in with a bag that has the logo on it, and an artwork.  The bag looked like those earth friendly kind of bags that you could recycle.

IMG_1028.JPGIMG_1030.JPGIMG_1037.JPG

This here is the backside of the bag and the bottom picture is the sides of the bag

IMG_1032.JPG

IMG_1035.JPG

The website, Facebook and twitter of this brand

IMG_1063.JPG

As for the packaging of the nutrition creams and the daily natural lightening foam

 

The green and yellow nutrition creams have the same packaging only different colors and description. Also the yellow one has “18 SPF” written on the front side of the box whereas the green one does not.

IMG_1043.JPG

The Daily Natural Lightening Foam did not come in a box; it just came as it is on the picture.

I was also given a brochure that has information about these products.

IMG_1070.JPG

IMG_1071.JPG

IMG_1072.JPG

In case you were lazy to read all of text on the brochure, let me help break it down for you into small points. So these products claim to be made from seven authentic Indonesian traditional herbs, which are Rumput Laut, Beras, Bligo, Kedelai, Lidah Buaya, Jeruk Nipis, and Pepaya. Each of these herbs has their own purposes.

Rumput Laut helps to really hydrate the skin, rich in vitamin and minerals, and prevents aging naturally.

Rice helps protects the skin from harmful UV rays

Bligo helps prevent acne and reduces inflammation from acne

Kedelai prevents aging and spotting on the skin

Lidah Buaya Hydrates, brightens and cools the skin

Jeruk Nipis natural antioxidant that prevents premature aging

Pepaya Helps exfoliates dead skin cells, smoothens and brightens the skin.

 

These products are made with the first of Indonesia’s Nano Technology that makes it easier for the skin to absorb the nutrition from these products naturally and effectively.

 

Alright, let’s move on to the product reviews.  I am going to start with The Daily Natural Lightening Foam.

IMG_1041.JPG

To be honest, I was afraid to try these products out because I know that I have sensitive skin and I can’t just switch products just like that because it might cause my skin to break out. But after knowing the seven herbs that are inside these products, I decided to give it a try because their descriptions and purposes are exactly what my skin needs. I have acne prone combination skin, and I get redness around my face, mostly around my chin area. I do have lots of tiny spots as well and my skin tends to get dry. Unlike the moisturizers, this foam face wash only has 5 of the traditional herbs inside it. It contains 50ml of product.

Price: 25.000 IDR

Texture: This product is like a mousse, it feels light, airy and soft, even when you apply it on your skin.

How to use: I wet my hands first and squeeze a pea size amount of the product into the palm of my hands and rub it until it starts to foam. Then I go ahead and use it all over my face, and around my neck. A medium amount of foam appears, not too much and it felt soft and nice. After I finish messaging my face with it, I rinse off with water.

Results: On the first day (I have used these products for 6 days) after I finished washing my face, my face did not feel dry at all, but as the day goes by as I continue to use it, every time I finish washing my face with it, my face gets slightly dry. It is common with any kinds of foam face wash. Besides the slight dryness, my skin does feel clean and refreshed. Another good thing is that I did not break out by using this product. I did not feel anything funny on my face and usually a couple of pustule acne would appear around my chin and I was expecting a farm load of them in the morning when I woke up, but miraculously there were just a tiny few, only around 2 or 3 which means I did not get any kind of new or weird reaction to my skin J CAN I GET AN AMEN?! xD AMEN!

So the score for this face wash is… *drum roll please*

Rating: 8/10

 

On to the second product! Super Cream Daily Nutrition Cream (yellow version)

This daily nutrition cream is a moisturizer. It has UV protection, it brightens and smooth out the skin. You might be wondering; what is the difference between the yellow and green moisturizer. Well, the yellow one claims to have a newer formula and is packed with SPF 18, whereas the green one does not contain SPF. The yellow one is specifically made to be used when you are about to go outdoors or as a day cream. It contains 18gr of product.

Price: 40.000 IDR

Texture: similar to the Daily Natural Lightening Foam. It is a mousse like texture, almost whipped cream or shaving cream like. The scent is pleasant, nothing too strong. Smells kind of like Johnson’s baby powder.

How to use: After washing your face with the facial foam, apply this onto your face and spread it evenly.

Application: When you rub the product into your skin, it flakes off and groups into tiny itty bitty pieces. Seeing that I wanted to blend it even more by rubbing it again but it just made it even flakier. The more you rub, the flakier it gets. Patting the product onto your face is a better way to apply it. It doesn’t get flaky when you pat, but because of this it takes more time to spread and blend the product.

Results: It takes a while to blend, and it leaves a slightly white cast onto your skin and sits on fine lines of the face but after a little while it all disappears and blends with your skin. Besides the weird application, it actually felt really good and really hydrated! It doesn’t feel sticky or tacky. I tried this out from morning at 9.32 AM; until night and my skin had no negative reactions at all J it felt hydrated all day.

Rating: 6/10

 

Last but not least, Super Cream Daily Nutrition Cream (green version)

This guy right here works as a general, anytime type of moisturizer. You can apply it day or night, whichever your little heart desires. Use this before the yellow one if you want to double it up. It does not contain SPF unlike the yellow one though. (The packaging is a bit weird, leaving the logo of the sun there when it does not contain SPF. Maybe it stands for the UV protection but it just looks like as if the designer simply erased the “SPF 18” text from the yellow one and just changed the colors to green. You could also use this as a base for your face powder, as it says in the description on the website.

Price: 35.000 

Texture: This one is the different one out of all 3. It is more of a liquidy creamy form. It has a white mixed with a tiny bit of pale yellow color. This time it was very easy to blend, no flakes whatsoever.

green 1.jpg

How to use: Same as the yellow moisturizer, use it after you have washed your face.

Results: Blended out so well. Feels slightly stickier on the skin when you first applied but the feeling disappears as it dries and blends into your skin. My skin felt a tiny bit of a burning/irritating sensation after I applied it (maybe because I had touched or scratched my face too much that day) my chin also felt a bit tingly which scared the crap out of me because usually when my chin or skin feels that tingly slightly itchy feeling inside, it is a sign that hell is about to break loose (yes, pustule acne breakout).  But, again miraculously, at the end of the day nothing happened just like the rest of the products! I think this product would just make the parts of the skin that has already been scratched or irritated/sensitive in the first place kerasa sedikit perih di awal-awal setelah pemakaian. I think it is kind of like when you apply alcohol to a scratch/wound to clean it but afterwards it doesn’t hurt anymore (I don’t know If I’m making sense or not, sorry lol). Does it hydrate? Yes it does hydrate; my face does feel kenyal or plump but I had to re-apply again because the hydration didn’t last too long for my face. It felt hydrated but made my skin that kind of slightly stiff but hydrated feel.

Rating: 6/10

 

So all in all, let’s go back to the checklist

-Prevents acne? Yes, not many pustules on my face/chin anymore

-Reduce inflammation? Yes, well my chin doesn’t easily feel as irritated or red as it would on a daily basis.

-Cooling agent? Yes, I can feel it 50% on all products

-Brightens face and reduce spots? Have not seen results yet, baru pakai hampir seminggu

-Hydrates for a long time? For the yellow one; yes.
In conclusion I would say that these products are ALRIGHT J . Not “wow I need this!!”, but not bad as well. If you are looking for more affordable and natural made products for sensitive skin, or for any skin, this might work for you. Other review I guess would be about the design of the packaging. If I were to see this at a store, I wouldn’t be interested; I don’t even think it would catch my eye. The logo of this brand looks like the logo of the supermarket “Giant”. Most Indonesian products lack on the design and even though the actual product is good, if the design is “meh”, not many people are going to buy it. This was a fun experiment though; I do plan on using this for a while longer J

 

That is it for my 2nd post, thank you all for reading and visiting! Much meggy love! ❤

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sariayu #TrendwarnaKrakatau Event and Product Review

DSCF5919.JPG

 

Sariayu has been one of my all time favorite local make-up brand. I remember my first Sariayu product was their compact powder, the one with the pale yellow packaging (yup, that’s right, you know which one I’m talking about). And now they have came up with more wonderful make-up products that will surely satisfy any make-up addict like muah :* . This year Sariayu launches their new make-up line, which is Inspirasi Krakatau The Colors of Asia which consists of the DUO Matte and Gloss lipsticks, and three of their Eyeshadow palettes.

When we came into the building, we were greeted nicely and we were told to re-apply our lipsticks using their new lip product and we were given a small canvas for us to write a beauty quote. They gave us silver and gold markers to write with and then finally we had to leave our lip marks on the canvas (yes, we kissed the canvas xD ). We then took photos individually holding our mini canvas’. They took our pictures using a polaroid so by the end of the day our canvas had our picture on it which I thought was very creative.

Le Place. (Hey that’s me on the right!)

The event was opened with a speech from the wonderful Mrs. Martha Thilaar herself. We were given thorough information about the concept behind their new make-up line and showed us a introduction video of the products.

REVIEW AND SWATCHES:

DUO Matte and Glossy Lip Products:

In the wonderful goodiebag, we were given all 12 shades (thank you Sariayu, thank  you :”D Muchos gracias! Te Amo!) It is wrapped in plastic, and when you unwrap it, the patterns you see above goes away, its not printed on the actual tube. In the plastic wrap, it indicates which end is matte and glossy but only on the plastic so once you remove it, you might forget which one is matte or glossy. After observing, the MATTE one will always be next to the S of the Sariayu logo, whereas the gloss will be next to the U.

lips2
Full swatches, the most right two I topped it off with the Gloss so you can see the difference using matte or topped with the gloss. Shades 1-12 is from Right to Left

Scent: Smells like candy ❤ very pleasant

Texture for MATTE: Moussey, creamy, soft and very easy to apply.

Texture for Gloss: glossy, not too sticky, just the perfect amount of sticky and shine. the shine isn’t a greasy shine.

Pigmentation: Awesome. some may need just 1 coat but others may need 2 coats (usually the brighter colors). 2 coats will do the trick for all, blot it first after it dries and it will last a long time

Longevity: Inner part of your lips will disappear when you eat super oily food. but if you don’t eat any super oily foods it can last all day without any touch-up.

Note: for MATTES do make sure you use lip balm and exfoliate because they can pick up dry patches.and also if it is matte, it tends to be a tiny bit drying but still very comfortable to wear 😀

I love the variation of colors, if you want subtle colors, nudes and brown, you got K-07 and K-08. Great for daily wear. but for me as a color lover, I love my orange, bold shocking magenta and the darkest red of all (K-09, K-05, K-12,K-01) ❤

An amazing job by Sariayu once again ❤ now let’s move on to the eyeshadows!

DSCF5813

This is the trio eyeshadow palette. They have 2 variations of this palette but they gave us the purple/blue toned one. The other one is more of a brown/maroon daily one.

Pigmentation: Awesome once again. for even more awesome, use a eyeshadow primer.

Texture: Creamy-my-my ❤ can have a bit of fall-out though but thats because of its great pigmentation.

Longevity: Wore this all day on the event, lasted all day as well. the purple and blue may faded a bit but it still stayed on ❤

Applicator I would not really use, only because I do prefer my regular make-up brushes but its an interesting innovation 🙂

Alright guys, for the 2nd palette, Overall it is the same review for the trio, pigmentation is wonderful, longevity also wonderful. Only some of the light shades can be a bit patchy and not too visible. doesn’t really kick a punch on the pigmentation (the light pink, but the champagne one is still fine).

I would like to see more variation of colors in the 2nd palette, because when you look close they colors look pretty similar to eachother.

Okey dokey guys this ends my review of the event, and swatches and all the wonderful jazz, please stay tune to my next blog post! and once again i would want to thank sariayu for inviting me, it was a wonderful and memorable event, especially the goodie bag hehe ❤ ❤ MEGGY LOVE DEM GOODIE BAGS ❤

Goodnight guys! love you! ❤
