Holiday Gift - Beauty Story Indonesia Holiday Gift Set

Hello gorgeous readers!!

Sorry banget kalau di bulan ini aku kurang aktif nulis blog. Soalnya aku lagi sibuk pindah rumah hehehe.. Banyak banget yang harus diurusin dan diberesin. Tapi akhirnya di hari terakhir di tahun 2015 ini aku masih bisa sempat post entry terakhir. 

Hari ini aku mau sharing mengenai peluncuran Holiday Gift Set dari Beauty Story Indonesia.Di awal bulan, aku diundang untuk datang ke Media Gathering yang diadakan oleh Beauty Story Indonesia, di mana mereka meluncurkan Beauty Story Holiday Gift Set. Sebetulnya ini bukan peluncuran produk baru dari Beauty Story, tapi Beauty Story memperkenalkan tiga Holiday Gift Set untuk akhir tahun ini. Apa aja sih Holiday Gift Set nya? Yuk kita lihat satu-satu detailnya.


Yang pertama, Beauty Organizer (349.999 IDR). Holiday set ini dikemas dalam bentuk kotak dari bahan karton keras berwarna pink dengan motif lace keunguan. Kotaknya cantik sekali dan bias digunakan sebagai Beauty Organizer di meja rias kamu. Kotak tersebut memiliki tiga sekat yang bisa kamu gunakan untuk menyimpan kuas makeup, eyeliner, atau pun lipstick. Holiday set ini terdiri dari:
Beauty Story CC Cream
Line Up So Black Liquid Eyeliner Pen
Midnight Dream Mascara
Sweety Fruity Strawberry Lip Balm
Lip & Cheek in Sweet Pea

Kedua, Eye Like This (349.999 IDR). Holiday Set ini dikemas dalam satu pouch makeup berbahan vinyl berwarna hitam dengan tulisan Eye Like This di atasnya. Pouch ini juga memiliki aksen zipper emas yang menambah tampilannya jadi lebih edgy. Holiday set ini terdiri dari:
High Brow in Brown
Romantic Creamy Eye Shadow Pencil in Sky
Midnight Dream Mascara
Line Up So Black Liquid Eyeliner Pen


Ketiga, Dazzling dan Sparkling (@120.000 IDR). Holiday set ini masing-masing berisikan lima (5) buah kuteks Beauty Story yang dibagi menjadi dua pilihan, yaitu Dazzling dan Sparkling. Di setiap set terdapat 2 buah kuteks dengan metallic finish dan 3 buah kuteks dengan matte finish. Warna-warna dalam set Dazzling lebih mengarah kepada warna pink dan keunguan dengan aksen putih dan silver. Sedangkan set Sparkling menurut saya lebih festive karena ada warna merah dan gold di dalamnya. Cocok sekali untuk digunakan pada saat acara atau pesta akhir tahun. 

Aku sendiri sudah menggunakan produk Beauty Story Indonesia sejak mereka meluncurkan brand mereka pertama kali di bulan Januari 2015. Brand local ini benar-benar patut mendapatkan dua jempol karena selain kemasannya yang manis, Beauty Story juga memiliki kualitas yang tidak kalah dengan brand-brand impor. Harganya pun sangat bersaing. Ramah untuk dompet deh hehehe..

Kalau kamu ada waktu, silahkan baca-baca review aku mengenai beberapa produk Beauty Story yang aku punya, yaitu Sweet and Chic Lipstick, Nail Polish, CC Cream dan Luminous Primer.

Aku senang sekali mengetahui bahwa Beauty Story pun tidak kalah dengan brand-brand impor yang sering meluncurkan Holiday Gift Set pada saat menjelang akhir tahun. Sering sekali kan kita bingung mau kasih kado apa untuk keluarga atau teman-teman kita pada saat Natal dan Tahun Baru. Nah, Holiday Gift Set dari Beauty Story ini bisa menjadi pilihan kamu. Selain mendapatkan produk-produk yang manis, kamu juga bisa menggunakan kembali kotak dan pouch nya untuk menyimpan produk-produk makeup yang kamu miliki. 

Untuk membeli produk Holiday Set ini, kamu bisa cek di untuk keterangan lebih lanjut. Di tahun 2016 nanti, Beauty Story juga akan meluncurkan produk-produk baru yang semakin lengkap. Produk apa ya kira-kira? Stay tune terus di blog aku untuk mendapatkan update nya ya.

Terima kasih Beauty Story untuk Holiday Gift Set nya. Semoga selalu sukses dan semakin dicintai oleh penggemar make up di Indonesia. See you on 2016!

Review - Three Ultimate Protective Pristine Primer and Three Flawless Ethereal Fluid Foundation

Hello gorgeous!
Today I’m going to give you a review about my current favorite primer and foundation. It’s Three Cosmetics, a Japanese brand that is well known for using organic botanical oils in its products. I knew this brand for quite some time since I was in Bangkok and heard many good things about it. So naturally, I was so excited when they opened their counter in Indonesia at Central Department Store, Grand Indonesia.

I got myself the infamous combo of Ultimate Protective Pristine Primer and Flawless Ethereal Fluid Foundation. It is a purchase that I don’t regret because it worth every penny that I spent on them. Let’s go to the review, starting with the packaging because both of them have similar bottle. 

The packaging is frosted glass bottle with a white pump to dispense the products out. It has a dark gray cap made of matte plastic. While it looks good, but it gets easily smudged by the leftover makeup on your hand after you applied the product. The frosted glass is great though, it gives you the luxurious feel whenever you look or touch them. The whole design of it is minimalist which aligned with Three Cosmetics concept, minimalist and natural. The pump works well too in dispensing the product. I usually need 2 pumps each for primer and foundation to covers my face and neck areas.

Both the primer and foundation are 80% made from naturally derived ingredients and contain Inca inchi (Plukenetia volubilis) oil, Camellia oleifera seed oil, Argania spinosa kernel oil, jojoba oil, evening primrose (Oenothera biennis) oil, rosehip oil, shea butter, beeswax. Those ingredients mostly are organic certified too. They have no scent and free from parabens, synthetic perfumes, animal-derived ingredients, and mineral oils. As for sun protection, these babies have pretty high amount of sun protection than the other primer or foundation on the market. The primer has SPF32+++ UV protection and the foundation has SPF36+++ UV Protection. Since it’s made mostly from natural ingredients, I supposed Three Cosmetics is safe for you who have sensitive skin. In my experience using these two, I never experience any breakouts or acne at all.

Now, we will go on to the individual review. I will start with Three Ultimate Protective Pristine Primer.
They have two type of primer, the Glow and Translucent. I chose the Glow because it said that it will give my skin a glowy yet natural finish. The primer will help to alleviate the dullness on my skin too. The texture is a little bit gel-ish and even the shade is beige, it will adjust to your skin tone after you applied it to your face only leaving a hint of beige on the skin which might be helping to remove the dullness from your skin. The texture is lightweight too and it glides easily on my skin. It reminds me to Laura Mercier Foundation Primer except Three Pristine Primer is a tad thicker. But the funny thing is my skin seems to absorb it easier than Laura Mercier one. Three Ultimate Protective Pristine Primer gives me a good layer of well moisturized and plumped skin to receive coverage from foundation while helping my makeup to stay longer. On the picture below, you could see that the primer creates a layer of glowy canvas on your skin.

The next one is Three Flawless Ethereal Fluid Foundation. The texture is not as gel-ish the primer, but it is a lightweight foundation. It glides smoothly on your face and immediately gives a smooth and natural finish to your skin. The coverage is light to medium, so if you wanted more coverage, you will need an extra layer of concealer to hide your spots and scars. I find it covers the redness on my face quite well and I love how natural the finish is. It’s perfect for that no makeup look because it gives your skin enough coverage to even out your skin tone while it gives the glow that you need. Use it with Three Ultimate Protective Pristine Primer to get the most result. The foundation last on me up to 12 hours if I use it with the primer and around 5-6 hours before I have to blot my face. I love how the primer and foundation did not dry my face but do not make it oily. It’s just the perfect balance. On the picture below, you could see that the foundation sink well on my skin and the finish is so natural like my own skin. Understand what I meant before when I said I'm totally in love with its finish?

Left : Not blended. Right : Blended

All in all, both products are extremely amazing. It has good quality ingredients and delivers wonderful result. Definitely putting them on my all time favorite base makeup products. These two has become my number one choice if I want to achieve a flawless yet natural look. Three Cosmetics also have other products that I wanted to try, such as their cleansing oil, lipstick, and eyeliner. Gahhhh so many products but only one face. The struggle of a makeup junkie is never ending hahaha..

Beauty Treatment - Korean Eyelash Extensions at ORLY miin

Hello gorgeous!

As I promised, today I'm going to share my experience on having a Korean eyelash extensions. I had been wanting to have an eyelash extensions for quite sometime, but haven't get the chance to do it. Apparently it was not as scary as I thought and I will tell you all about it here.

Last week, I had a meetup with my fellow bloggers that I knew from Clozette Indonesia because we are all Star Clozetters. It was the first time that we met but it seemed that we have known each other for a long time. Our lunch was full of chatters and laughter.

At that day, we got an offer from Orly miin, a beauty lounge located at Plaza Indonesia, 4th floor, to get a beauty treatment as part of their grand opening promotion this month. So, off we went to check it out. I was so excited because this is actually my first time getting a beauty treatment in a beauty lounge together with my girlfriends :)

Orly miin is the newest premium beauty lounge opened in Plaza Indonesia. Its name miin in Korean language means beautiful woman. It's inline with their vision and mission to make the world more beautiful and to make all woman in Indonesia truly beautiful with healthy skin. Why Korean name? Because the founder of Orly miin is Mr. Kang Bong Ju, a native Korean who has 9 years of experience in the beauty world. You can see the services Orly miin offers on the picture below. The services cater your needs from head to toe. They even offer nail care service for children too! I'm imagining a mother-daughter date happens here :)


Me and my girlfriends was given the choice which beauty treatment that we want to do. I chose the Korean Eyelash Extensions. I do not have the courage to try their the semi permanent makeup such as eyebrow, eyeliner, or lips embroidery. So kudos for Ellen, Jennifer, and Cathrine who did the semi permanent make up treatment *clapping hands*. Even doing an eyelash extensions gives me the jitters because I never done anything like this before. And some people said that usually your eyelashes can go bald if you do it too many times. What a horrific testimony, right?

So, what makes me finally agree to do it? Days before the treatment, I googled everything related to Korean eyelash extensions. The process, the equipment, and the pros and cons. Yes, I'm such a paranoid when it comes to beauty treatment hahaha. I just want to familiarize myself with everyhting that I'm going through so I would not be too shocked with the process or the result. My search showed that it's actually a very safe procedure and not painful at all. When I arrived at Orly miin, I'm more convinced to do it because they only use premium quality equipment and products with the latest technology from Korea to make sure that their customers get the best result and satisfied with the services. All of their staffs are well trained (by an expert directly from Korea) and they have high standards of hygiene and sanitation. So I believed that I'm in good hands :)

The lashes to be glued one by one to our real eyelashes
Mbak Shinta is my beautician. She said that the process usually takes 90-120 minutes, depends on the lashes and the look that we are going to achieve. She asked me what look that I wanted and how curl the eyelashes are. I choose the double but natural and curlier eyelashes.


The process more or less is like this:

  • First, she cleansed my eye area from the makeup that I applied. This is important because we want to make sure the eyelashes are clean so the glue will stick better.
  • After that, she put a patch at the under of my eyes to stick my lower lashes so that it will not interfere with the upper lash extensions. The patch is really good, it has a cooling effect and I felt my eyes get treat too while the process.
  • Then, she applied an eyelash primer to prep the eyelashes.
  • The magic started. She started to apply the lash extensions one by one to my real eyelashes. No wonder it took 90 minutes, because it needs to be done meticulously to get a wonderful result.
  • Lastly, she blow dry my eyelashes (with a cool setting) to make sure the extensions glued well to my lashes and the glue really dry.

VOILA!! Look at the result! I look like a doll! :D

I love the result even though at first I thought that the lashes were too curly. It's like my eyelashes got an electric shock hahaha I think its because I'm not used to it so it looked like Va Va Voom! I'm very happy with it and satisfied with how Mbak Shinta did her job. The whole process did not hurt and the lashes look beautiful.Once I saw pictures of a bad eyelash extensions. The beautician did not do it carefully, so the extensions glued to not one, but several lashes, so it made the eyelashes look clumped and unnatural. Or sometimes the beautician glued more than one extensions to one eyelash, makes it really heavy and break the real eyelash. 

After the treatment, I played around at Orly miin, exploring other products they carry at their beauty lounge. Checking out what my girlfriends doing and chatted with the staffs. I tried Kocostar 6 Way Hydrogel Eye Patch, a hydro-gel patches that contains 5 main active ingredients, Peony, Philinus, Ginseng, Baikal Skullcap, and Gold. The patches help to tone, condition, detoxify, brighten, and firm the areas that you put the patch on. It is called 6 ways, because you could put them on 3 pairs of different areas of your face. The eyelids, under eyes, and sides of mouth. The patches stick well and did not feel greasy at all. You barely feel it there actually. It has cooling effect, even after 20 minutes of usage the patches still feel cool. My eyes loving it!


Orly miin also carries other products from Kocostar such as sheet mask, hair treatment, and nail treatment. They also have 384 nail polish colors and 398 gel polishes from ORLY which allow you an unlimited creation of nail art. I think I know what next beauty treatment that I'm going to get at Orly miin *wink wink*
