Laneige Snow BB Soothing Cushion

Hello hello people~! FINALLY I'm back with another makeup review for you all makeup lover :) and this time if from a brand I never reviewed it before, that is LANEIGE :D :D

So here a back story why I ended buy this product ^.^

Since I've tried Etude House Precious Mineral Any Cushion, I instantly falling in love with cushion products! They are so handy and time-saving. Not to mention, they provide nice coverage and still moisturizing my dry skin well (because I'm using cleansers for acne, my skin is kinda dry out). When my Etude House cushion was running out, I was tempted to try out other brands :> Luckily, I joined my mom and sis at a mall because sis want to buy a whole set of new skincare. I don't really into that brand that sis was interested in, so I ended up take a round to another counters. Coincidentally, I found Laneige counter and the SA offered me to try their cushion product. I knew that this product is not new, but I was so curious to try it. And....HOLY MOLY I love how it feels so soothing on the back of my hand (obviously I didn't try it on my face because eww how many people have tried the tester?) Well, yeah later on, I dragged mom to try it and she also loved the cushion and she finally purchased it for us (since we also got the refill *tehee~!)

Enough with the rambling. So now onto the reviews!

the paper box

 I chose No.13 True Beige
apparently this is the lightest shade option from this cushion

open the box

tadaaaa~! here is the compact :D

 back of the compact

inside the compact


Packaging is simple. The round white compact does look cheaper compared with Etude House Precious Mineral Any Cushion (I don't lie, really). Inside you can find the typical air fit clue puff with a round big mirror, convenient whenever you want to touch up your makeup :) Inside you will find the cushion still sealed to prove it that it's a new product and to prevent from any bacteria entering *hygiene approved*

the cushion sponge

the air puff

 I wish the puff comes in cuter color but oh well :p


Dab your puff onto the cushion a lil bit hard to get even application and dab the puff onto your face. Once you dab it onto your skin, you will feel the soothing or maybe to be exact the cooling effect? It gives enough soothing effect for my dry skin but still sometimes on the day my skin is very dry after cleansing, I will put on some moisturizer first beforehand :)

closer look of the cushion sponge


This cushion gives you powdery finish, but not too powdery. I still can see the dewy-ness and I recommend for you who have oily skin to set it with loose powder so your makeup can last a looot longer. I personally just set it on the part where my skin is getting oily faster like the side of my nose, chin, forehead, and also under my eyes (to prevent my eye makeup from smudging). For you who don't like to use powder to set your makeup you may skip it :> But this bb cushion doesn't really last long compared to Etude one :x

beautiful powdery finish :>
*please ignore the ugly smile line around my nose ugh*

I chose the lightest color since my skin is more into pink tone and the color fits me perfectly without gives me those overly white cast. I think this is one of the things that makes people prefer cushion that the usual bb cream. Where bb cream tends to lead into grayish color and sometimes doesn't really oxidize while the cushion (whether it's foundation, bb or cc cushion) is more fit with your skin tone :D

look how it match my skin tone really well? :D


Coverage is sheer to medium and it's buildable. It provides more coverage than the Etude one :D It can covers my redness and blemishes quite well. But still for my active pimples, zits, and major acne scars I must use a separate concealer :/


The texture feels light, lighter than the usual bb cream but I think it's still heavier if compared with cc cream (I never try any cc cream before!) *correct me if I'm wrong*


Smells really good! The scent is kinda similar with Etude cushion, it has this relaxing floral scent ^.^

My favorite part of cushion product is it's really time saver for me who usually rush everything in the morning haha (because I must do my whole makeup and hair in 30 minutes -_-''). And also I don't have to make my hand dirty with those base makeup application routine (only a lil bit dirty when I apply my concealer). Fast, easy, convenient, and time-saving are the key words ;)

In conclusion:

- Light texture
- Powdery finish
- Smells really good >///<
- Provides buildable sheer to medium coverage
- Handy and travel friendly
- Convenient for those who likes to touch up their makeup
- Affordable (around $40 at the counter and comes with the refill)

- Doesn't last long

oh I also dab some loose powder to keep my makeup last longer :>

Since I love this cushion, now I'm tempted to try other cushions from other brands! Anyone can recommend their favorite cushion product to me? :D

Okay, ladies thanks for reading and see you on another post ^.^ Bye bye~!

Hello Hello Hello :D

Hello peeps~! So first I want to apologize to you all because of my ultra long MIA -__-''. SO MANY things happened in my life (include my uni life) that make me hesitant to update this crappy blog *bows down*

To be honest, uni life is starting to get better when entering second semester :) I've got new friends (classmate actually but we've got closer these days *teehee~), there was almost no assignment to be done, I've got learned cooking (which was I really hated it back then), etc etc :D

Time flew so fast and here I'm alone in my room, preparing one makeup review for you ;) and this one from Laneige! Mom bought it for me (well I succeed in persuaving her to buy it for me) directly at the Laneige counter. I never never expected that Laneige doesn't over-price their product here at the counter (especially outside Korea). So I'm working on the photos for the time being and also browsing new templates for my blog (there are so many thing to be done).

Well, I think my writing skill is getting crappier *duh* And also my skin is getting crappier (redness, acne scars, zits, pimples) -___-. I'm planning to get facial next Saturday to get rid of these nasty oil clogs on my skin that form little annoying bumps on my face >:( My dark circle also getting worse cos I lack of sleep because of my new phone! LOL yeah finally I've got my new phone that is Oppo R1 :D :D Love the camera so much! Not to mention, its beautify effect that allows me to take picture in my dark room hehe >:) *will talk about my phone further later*

So yeah, I guess, I'll back working on the photos. So you guys on the next post and bye bye~! :D

Leaving 2013 and Moving to 2014

Hello, I'm back again~! I know I've been so lazy to blog once I set my path to uni life :( I'm so sorry for not be able to give you product reviews like I did back in 2012. Uni life has taken most of my time and I'm that kind of student that cannot neglect my assignments and school tasks although I hate it to the max -__-

So yeah, 2013 has been good so far. Not great but just good (at least it's not bad leh). I've met many new people and encountered various events. I've been practicing my makeup skill more often because I do my makeup everyday and also sometimes I do makeup for my friends too :)

I also have found my dream this year. One that I'm sure I want to do it not just kind of fake dream that I make to be showed off to people like what I did when I was in high school. Yes, I've found my solid passion in beauty field. In fact, I'm practicing to be a makeup artist. To be honest, I've liking makeup since 2 or 3 years ago, I think? But still, I didn't have enough confidence to be a makeup artist. And also both of my parents seem to underestimate this dream of mine and force me to choose another path. I tell you, at first after graduated from high school, I didn't have any plan to enter university because simply I freaking hate studying (even though I still force myself to get good grades for my parents). Mom and dad knew about this and they also didn't force me to enter a university. But the problem start when sis persuaded both mom and dad to enroll me in a uni because she said no company will hire you or will pay you well if you don't have standard degree. I don't really mind (yes, until this moment still I don't really mind) because I didn't really know what I want to do, except studying Japanese and makeup.

So later on, in such a short time, mom tried to find a uni for me and she didn't even care what major that I want to choose. One freaking thing that I hate that she only gave me one option for a uni that is a low-grade uni that famous for been a place for lazy and delinquent kids *sigh*. Moreover, I was too late to apply and I must wait for the next year to be enrolled to that freaking uni. So yeah, that is my reason why I was held a year aback. I can't hate my parents for force me to choose the path that I hate because I know they did it for my sake. I can't drop out from uni either because the payment already has been made. So yeah, now I'm trapped in these boring uni life for three years ahead *facepalm*

All I can do for now is study hard to get good grades like what I always do for my parents sake but not for my sake. It's really hard I'm telling you and I'm very sad with this kind of life that I've been through for the last 4 years. Still, I can't neglect my study just because I hate it, that's not a mature act. My life kinda passive and boring before I knew about makeup. I just study, study, and study only to know I have to get good grades. But, since I knew makeup, my life has been changed in a better way. I can be creative with all those colors, I can inspire people around me to take care more of themselves, in other words I've found what I truly like. So, even though I've been stuck and trapped in that disgusting and low-grade uni, still I will pursue my dream to be a makeup artist :)

Thanks to my passion with beauty, I've meet many gorgeous and nice people through my blog :) They taught me a lot of things such as how to be hard-worker, loyal friend, and many more. I also improve my English skill a lot by watching makeup tutorials, reading beauty blogs, and writing a blog itself :D

All I can say is that my passion has brought many good (or even great) things into my life :) So why can't I be proud of it? :)

Leaving this boring year of 2013 and moving on to 2014, I've made a few resolution (this is my first resolution that I ever made lol) :D So yeah, here are a few things that I want to accomplish in the next year:

- Reach 40 kg by eating healthier and start exercising.
- Take care of my skin more diligently ;)
- Pray and read bible everyday (I'm a Christian btw).
- Learn to manage my allowance more effectively.
- Buy less makeup and start to organize my wardrobe.
- Polish my makeup skill of course.
- Become more down-to-earth person.
- Buy gifts for mom and dad's birthday with my own earned money :)
- Become fluent in English.
- Learn Japanese all over again.
- Care more about people around me :D

To close this boring post, may I wish you all (late) MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR !!!

May all of your wish come true and wish you more happiness in the next year :D

Keep on smiling and God Bless!! :D :D

Blog Swap With Sherly From Blame The Store \(^O^)/

Hello, people! Long time no see ヽ(*⌒∇⌒*)ノ Miss you guys so much!!! (*≧ω≦)

First of all, I'm so sorry for abandon my blog for quite a long time *bow*. I faced my mid term after I wrote my last post and after that, campus activities just got so hectic (×_×;). We got so many assignments, presentations, and also I spent my time hanging out and worked part time with my friends until it was very late (until morning actually *teehee~). I was so tired but I don't mind cuz it was really fun to spend time with my friends, am I right? (*^▽^*)

Okay, let's move on to the main of this post: A BLOG SWAP!!! Yahuuu, this is my first blog swap and Sherly from Blame The Store was kindly to accept my request to do blog swap with her (。・ω・。). Isn't she really kind? Hehe 。◕‿◕。. So we asked each other preferences through numerous emails and then we moved our conversation to WhatsApp. We took note what we like, what we don't like, and so on. It was really fun to know your friend further and I'm really happy when we found we like same things (“⌒∇⌒”)

We agreed to choose beauty as our theme for this blog swap and we limit our budget up to IDR 300.000. We didn't limit the brands and she ended choose Asian brands that are Korea and Japan products! I really like both Korea and Japan brands, so I was so happy when I opened the box she sent me hehe (^v^)

The funny thing, we sent our box on the same day and we received it also on the same day, only I get mine a few hours later than her LOL. And also I laughed when I found she chose a same product that I also chose for her hahaha (*^ワ^*)

Embrace Faux Long Hair

Hellooooooo everyone~ What's up? I miss blogging so much, sadly my uni life kinda killing me because I must adapt to many new things *sigh* T_T

So, it's been around three months since I started uni. My major is Hospitality and Tourism and this is the only major that insists you to wear uniform everytime you have classes ( ̄□ ̄;). But I don't really sad about it cuz I won't be confuse (like other people) to choose what I am going to wear when I go to uni lol. But yeah I often evny with those who can freely wear their casual clothes (>_<)

Oh, I forgot to apologize to you all my readers cuz I let this blog dead for a very long time *slap myself*. I'm such a bad blogger  (╥_╥). I have so many things I want to talk about along with many products to be reviewed. I also have done blog swap with my dear fellow blogger, Sherly from Blame The Store 。◕‿◕。 and I'm so excited to share with you guys hehe (* >ω<)

So moving on to the main topic of this post. Last week, I attended my relative's wedding reception and since I had quite amount of time, I decided to embrace my new long wig that I never used before (not it's actually my sis's wig  ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°). I also asked my sis to help styling the wig cuz it's so long and I'm really sucks at hairdo -___-. First my sis styled it into a ponytail on the side of my head but the bobby pins couldn't hold the ponytail and sadly I decided to change it into loose ponytails. It's kinda hard to explain it with words lol so I'll just show you guys the pictures, okay? (°∀°)b

 one ponytail

loose ponytails or what usually people call it?
if you know, please tell me in the comment below :)

So yeah, what do you think? Do I suit long hair or not? Mom ensured me that I look better with long hair but I don't know really ( ̄~ ̄)
Right now, I'm in the process of growing out my hair but meh my hair is really thick and I already feel a little hot on my neck area lol (*≧▽≦)ノシ

Next week, I'm having mid tests for the next two weeks, but I'll try to post my blog swap before it :D

Okay peeps, see you on the next post! Bye bye~! *hug* (づ。◕‿‿◕。)づ
