Mentholatum Face on Face: Two Way Cake & Blush On

Hello everyone, I'm really sorry for neglecting my blog for a while. FYI, now I work in Semarang on a factory (again).

Rohto Metholatum finally launch their cosmetic line named Face On Face. There's Two Way Cake, Loose Powder, Eyeshadow, and Blush On that worth to try although the colour selection for Eyeshadow and Blush On are limited *I hope they will launch more shades* =D

Two Way Cake
Now I wanna give you a review about my new two way cake that I used recently. I use it everyday since December before I go to work or hang out and I'm really in love with it. Face on Face give it to me for free and for review purpose but this is my honest review.

This product says:
1. Contains Improved Hyaluronic Acid to keep face skin moisture and smooth 2x better compared to common Hyaluronic Acid.
2. Vitamin E as antioxidant and nourishing your skin while you wearing make up.
3. Double Sunscreen Agent to protect skin from UVA & UVB.
4. Mineral Oil Free so that gently for your skin.
5. Oil Control & Shine Free agent for longer shine free appearance.

When you apply this TWC on your face, it feels very light. It doesn't make you feel like wearing mask or heavy make up. It has medium coverage and natural shades that will blend prefectly with your skintone. It makes your skin feels smooth and look bright. I always wearing it from 7 AM - 6 PM and I never found it cakey but it does fade at the end of the day and my face look a little bit dewy but I don't need to touch up though. I work indoor with air conditioning. But if I go outdoor to see installation progress on the plant it will fade faster, because I'm sweating. It so hot and there's a lot of dust and smoke from crane and people welding everywhere. When I blot my face with tissue to absorb my sweat, this TWC does a little bit colour transfer. Well, I hope this TWC is transfer resistant so it would be more long lasting.

What I like from this TWC is it doesn't makes my face oily or shiny and I don't need to bloting my face with tissue or face paper. My previous TWC makes my face oily and I need to blot my face 1-2 a day *huft*. Honestly, I'm so glad that I found this TWC because it's more friendly to my skin.

The packaging of this TWC is made from plastic and bulky because it has 2 compartments for the TWC and for the puff. It has round mirror too which you can use for touch up. There's a slightly powder fragrance that you can smell, but it doesn't bother me at all.

There's 5 shades available for this TWC: Charmy Pink, Silky White, Vanilla Beige, Natural Yellow, Tropical Beige.
Recently I use Vanilla Beige but it's a little bit too dark for my skintone because my face look a bit darker compared to my chest. But I have another supply, Silky White, and I think it will match perfectly with my skintone but I haven't try it yet.

Cute round pink packaging <3

L-R: Silky White & Vanilla Beige

Blush On

This product says:
1. Contains Improved Hyaluronic Acid to keep face skin moisture and smooth 2x better compared to common Hyaluronic Acid.
2. Vitamin E as antioxidant and nourishing your skin while you wearing make up.
3. Mineral Oil Free so that gently for your skin.

As a blush lover, I'm really glad to receive this little cute blush on with pink plastic packaging. Face on Face kindly gave me Blooming Rose shade. I thought this blush on would be sheer but surprisingly they are pigmented. YAY! They are soft, easy to blend, and not powdery. The shade is really pretty too. It's rosy pink that makes my face looks like a doll. This will give you a natural flush on your cheeks and very natural looking. I think this shade is made for teenager and young lady. Lasting power of this blush is average, about 4 hours then it fades.

This blush on available in 2 shades: Blooming Rose & Natural Glow. I'm really curious to try Natural Glow because I heard that a lot of people like it too =D

Blended *very pretty*

Although I don't know about the exact price, but I'm really sure their price is very affordable because all of these products are made for teenager and young lady but the quality is really good and contains vitamin E to maintain healthy skin =D

Made in Indonesia

Silkygirl Blush Hour in 01 Nectar Blush

Silkygirl says: This long-wearing Blusher promises a healthy, natural flush. Its ultra-fine texture promises an excellent color payoff.

Hello everyone, I'm back again to give you a review about a blush that I bought recently from Silkygirl. Maybe you already know about Silkygirl since they are famous with their BB cream but I really fall in love with their blushes. I have Silkygirl Blush Hour in 02 Dune Rose which already become my HG blush since last year (you can read my review here) and I really want to try another shade from this line.

I decide to try 01 Nectar Blush because the colour is like peachy something on the pan and I can't stop thinking about it, LOL! Let's take a look =D

Now, I wanna compare Nectar Blush with Dune Rose.
Note: 01 - Nectar Blush, 02 - Dune Rose

As you can see, Nectar Blush is a matte blush and it's a pretty bright peach. So if you want to have a bright peach blush, this could be the right choice. This blush is very pigmented so use very light hand when use this blush. Perfect for hang out and freshen up my face. If you want natural shade you can choose Dune Rose. It's a natural rosy pink, great for everyday blush. IMO, Nectar Blush is great for light to medium skintone, while Dune Rose is great for almost all skintone.

As I mention on my previous review about Dune Rose, the blushes from this line is powdery, so don't swirl your brush against the pan because it will make them look messy. Just "dab dab dab" on the pan with a light hand and you can build up the colour on your cheek gradually. They are long lasting and blend easily on my cheeks.

The brush is small but very soft. You can use this to apply the blush if you accidentally forgot to bring your blush brush. Very wearable small brush that come together with the blush. The packaging is fragile. My Dune Rose's packaging is crack and I don't know why, hahaha. That's why I pull out the pan and put it together with my Revlon blush >.<

The price is IDR 39500,- but bought this for IDR 27700,- because this November, Silkygirl have sale 30% all item on Saturday and Sunday only in Matahari Dept. Store. It's really a great deal, right? So if you want to try a product from this brand, you can go to their booth on weekend and enjoy the sale ^^

Made in Thailand.

This is the back of the packaging so you can see the ingredients.


What do you think about Silkygirl Blush Hour? Do you have it?
Thanks for reading and have a nice day ^_^

UPDATE! December 16th 2012
It's totally my favorite matte blush nowadays. Really pretty shade! Perfect for my skintone, easy to blend. I reach this one a lot ^_^

My Blush Collection

Hi everyone, it's been a while since my last post ^^
Today I wanna show you my blush collection, requested by some of my friends because they knew that I really really love blushes. This could be a blush porn, so take a deep breath, LOL!

So, these are the blushes that I have right now excluding my first blush that I have when I was on high school (Pixy in 01 Pink Flowers - discontinued) which already broken, messy, and dirty because it fell on the floor several times and that was the first time I realized that blush can break, and another blush that I already gave to my mom (MAC Beauty Powder in Summer Rose - Limited Edition) which I don't like because it's very sheer and takes a lot of effort to use it as a blush, but it has beautiful rose imprint on the surface though.

Okay, now let me open them for you so you can see the colour inside =D

* my HG blush (long lasting, pretty shade, pigmented, reasonable price, blendable)

I hope this is no too much. Some of them still brand new and unopened (NYX) while the other already opened but unused yet (Jordana, Milani, Face on Face) but I will use all of these babies for sure. Really really love all of them.

As you can see, I don't have extreme shade like deep purple, bright orange, or a very dark brown, all of them is very wearable. All of them is more about peach, pink, coral, and rosy shade. I have shimmery blush more than matte blush. Well, shimmer blush is pretty, hehehe. The brand is vary too from Indonesian brand to UK brand. Oh well, I don't have Korean brand like Etude and high end brand like Tarte, Benefit, Illamasqua, Stila, or Nars because their price is crazy.

The pigmentation, some of them is sheer and fool-proof and some of them is very pigmented and tricky. The texture, I have powder, baked (IMO, is the best!), cream, and stick. I haven't try liquid yet but I would love to try.

If you wondering why I really love blushes, well I have to say that blush is the most powerful weapon for me. It can brighten up my face instantly especially if I'm looking tired. If I don't sleep well, just a few swipe of blush, then my face looks fresh again with a touch of natural flush. And if my skin looks very pale, then blush can add warmth to my face. MAGIC!

So this is what I believe, “When a girl ceases to blush, she has lost the most powerful charm of her beauty” by Gregory The Great, St.

If you have any question about blushes that I have above, let me now =)

What is you favorite blush? Please share with me, I would love to know =D

Gift from Lip on Lip and Face on Face

Hi ladies, so yesterday I received 2 packages from courier. Both of them are from PT. Rohto Laboratories Indonesia. I saw the handwriting on the envelopes said "Beauty on Healthy Photo Contest Favorite Winner" and "Lip on Lip Whose Lips Winner". Thanks God, I know this is a bless from You so I can win the contest and quiz from them and thanks to Rohto and Mentholatum for give me an opportunity to win these ^^

Okay, now let's take a peek what's inside.

Hmm..seems a lot of stuff inside =D

Canmake Cream Cheek: 07 Coral Orange & 11 Heavenly Heart

Hello to all my readers ^^
Today is a beautiful day, right? I don't know why today is a beautiful day but I feel so happy because it's nice to know that there's a lot of people who really love me <3

Now, I wanna give a review about my new Canmake Cream Cheek that I already mention here on my previous post. This is my first cream blush ever! I'm really curious about the texture, pigmentation, application, how it looks on my cheeks, etc.

I have to admit that Canmake Cream Cheek have a lot of beautiful shades that makes me take a really long time to choose the shade that I really want. Finally, my heart and my eyes decide to choose #07 Coral Orange and #11 Heavenly Heart (beautiful name). Seriously, I have no regret at all to choose these 2 babies. They are soooo pretty. When I first opened it and look on the pan I can see pretty shades with gold microshimmer. Love love love! I really like anything pinkish with gold shimmer. They're like perfect combination. That gold microshimmer gives subtle glow to my cheeks. When I saw my finger after I blend the cream cheek on my cheeks, the gold microshimmer looks like a sheen.

#07 Coral Orange & #11 Heavenly Heart (with flash)

#07 Coral Orange: Pretty coral with gold shimmer.

#11 Heavenly Heart: Fresh pink with gold shimmer.

For application, I'm using my clean finger to apply it on my cheeks. Dot dot dot and blend, hahaha. They're buildable, so be careful if you don't want to look like a clown. Since the pigmentation is pretty good, 2 layers is enough to get the intensity that I want. Very natural looking ^^

Because I feel a bit oily (maybe because it's the first time I'm using cream blush) so I layer it again with a little bit of Canmake Cheek & Cheek and it makes them last longer. This cream cheek spreads easily on my cheeks and not sticky at all.

Because it gives glowy cheeks, has gold shimmer, and a bit oily, I prefer to use this cream cheek at night. I have combination skin (normal-oily) but the oily thing from this cream cheek is still tolerable. I'm so happy to live here in Bandung that have cold weather at night. The shimmer is not overwhelming and it doesn't noticeable except you look closely.

They last up to 5 hours on my cheeks when I wear it at night and note that I always give a thin layer of Canmake Cheek & Cheek. After 5 hours, they start to fade away. Pretty good, right? =D

For the price, IMO they're expensive. They didn't mention how many grams of product on the packaging but they are very small. Since they are gift, I don't know about the price, LOL!

Look how small they are on my hand >.<

Made in Japan.

  • Have a lot of beautiful shades to choose
  • Long lasting
  • Pigmented
  • Hard to find in Indonesia
  • Expensive
  • Cheap plastic packaging

I would say that I really recommended this product and I would love to purchase another shades.

Now the swatches especially for you my beautiful readers ^^

T - B: #11 & #07 (without flash)

T - B: #11 & #07 (with flash)

T - B: #11 & #07 (blended)

Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoy =D

There's some new blushes (I really love blushes), nail polishes, and false lashes =D

I ordered 7 new blushes from local online shop and I guess they got this from CherryCulture.com because they said that I can check the price from CherryCulture.com and using a formula to convert the USD to IDR. Me and my beauty blogger's friend, Alvianti, order some stuffs from them and we have to wait for almost 1 month until we received them on our hands. Horray! Oh, there was a sale on CC for several items that still on going until now and maybe you want to check them out! I like this online shop because their price is fluctuate depends on CC's price and that's make their price cheaper when there's a sale on CC while the other local online shop's price is fixed. I think this is a best deal that I don't wanna missed XD

L to R:

Milani Baked Blush in Dolce Pink, Rose D'Oro, & Corallina

False Lashes
I bought this from local online shop because there's a promo during September, buy 2 get 2 free random, hahaha..So I bought 2 pairs and I got 4 pairs. This is my first time buying false lashes ever >.<

The seller is very nice and kind. She answered my questions patiently and gives me fast response day and night, hahaha..

Oh, I just remember that I don't have the glue, ROFL!

Price: @ Rp. 25000,-

Nail Polish
I bought this nail polish from Multiply.com together with my beauty blogger's friend, Alvianti. She asked me if I want to try The Face Shop Lovely ME:EX Nails, so I think it's okay because they're ready stock, so we don't have to pre order although it's Korean brand and it's cheap, hehehe...

TFS Lovely ME:EX Nails in BL601 & PK102
Price: @ Rp 15000,-
Bought from RieButik

Free Samples
Oh, I almost forgot, me and Alvianti got 2 free samples from RieButik but Alvianti gives all the samples to me. She is so sweet ^^

New Members In My Stash Part 1

Hello everyone, how are you gals? Anybody miss me? Hehehe...
So, today I wanna share about my new beauty items that I have recently and a bit story behind it. Maybe you can call it mini haul but let me call it "new members in my stash", hahaha. I have 4 new items:
1. Canmake Cheek & Cheek 03 Gerbera Kiss
2. Canmake Cheek & Cheek 04 Love Blossom
3. Canmake Cream Cheek 07 Coral Orange
4. Canmake Cream Cheek 11 Heavenly Heart (I pick this up because I love the name, LOL)

I know that Canmake is not available in Indonesia but still, you can get them from local online shop although I think the price is expensive and it's not affordable for me, so I ask my boyfriend to help me to get these Canmake blushes in Singapore because I know the price would be cheaper, hahaha. A few weeks ago, my boyfriend (which live in Batam) went to Singapore so I sent the picture of these Canmake blushes to him so he can buy correctly and told him that he can get these items in Watsons. 

Actually, I only want 1 Cheek & Cheek and 1 Cream Cheek because I know the price is not really cheap but I really wanna try Canmake blushes since there is a lot of great review about them from beauty blogger. I said to him for Cheek & Cheek I want #03 or #04 and for Cream Cheek I want #07 or #11. Surprisingly, he bought all of the colours that I asked to him, hahaha. He said he was confuse so it's better picked up all of the colour that I wanted, LOL!

Oh, I asked him to get Jelly Beans and Ruffles too. I like Jelly Beans because I can get a lot of flavor in one container and I always love to pick one colour and check the flavor on the back of the container, LOL! Their flavor always surprise me because it taste like a real fruit. And for Ruffles, I actually not really like potato chips because it always makes my throat itchy or sore. But this potato chips taste really good and makes me addicted. Even my brother love it very much and I gave him 1 pack of Ruffles because my boyfriend gave me 2 packs and I know I can't eat all of them >.<

My lovely boyfriend bought seaweed and pistachios nuts too because he knows that I really like it! He bought it on local supermarket in Batam. We met last weekend when he visited me in Bandung. He gave me a lot of stuffs and he just like a Santa Claus, hahaha. He was in Bandung for 2 days only and we really have a good time together. Now he already back to Batam for working. I miss him so bad :(

So here is all the stuffs that my boyfriend gave me ^^

L to R, T to B: Cream Cheek #11 & #07, Cheek & Cheek  #04 & #03
Thank you so much to my boyfriend. I really love these, Darling :*

Thanks for reading and I will review them soon. I just haven't open it yet because it's too cute >.<
