Even the bitterest and the darkest experience, makes my life colourful.

Lip Smacker® Tasty Tropicals Trio and Coca Cola Trio

Hi everyone! I'm a happy crazy little girl because I got a new Lip Smacker from my uncle which live in Australia. Ok, I know I'm lying, I'm not a little girl but I wish I was, hehe...I got this when my uncle visit Indonesia and we met on wedding party on 11/11/11. He gave me 2 packs of Lip Smacker Trio. I haven't try and open them yet because I still have my Dr Pepper trio. So I think I will try them next year or maybe next month or maybe next week, LOL. I really want to open them and try all of them because they look so tempted, hehe...but I'm worry their smells will fade or change about 1 or 2 year(s) after opened. So I must keep patience and not open them after I finished my Dr Pepper trio.

Now I'll show them to you and I'll update about the review after I try all of them =D

Lip Smacker Coca Cola Trio (Coca Cola Cherry, Coca Cola, and Coca Cola Vanilla)
The packaging is cute, red plastic ornament. When I open the packaging, I can smell coca cola candy scented.

Lip Smacker Tasty Tropicals Trio (Papaya, Banana, and Passion Fruit)

Can't wait to open and try all of them, soon =D

Bourjois Little Round Pot Blush Rose D'or & Lilas D'or

Our timeless blusher has been around for almost 150 years and have made Bourjois famous worldwide thanks to its amazing texture and packaging.
The baked texture transforms when applied to the skin into an ultra-fine pressed powder, which is easy to apply and blends impeccably. One stroke of the brush reveals the irresistible aroma of the rose scented powder.
Its built-in mirror and brush is perfect for touch-ups on the go!
The Little round pot blush exists in 12 shades to match all skin tones.

Hi everyone, this is my first baked blush. I'm so happy with my new Bourjois blush. I read so many good reviews about this blush because it has pretty shades, long lasting, pigmented, and have a very cute packaging. Well, I saw the swatches from some beauty blogs, so I decide to pick 2 shades, Rose D'or and Lilas D'or.

I'm so happy with the texture of this blush. It's not powdery and easy to pick up the pigment. The blush has a scent but some people don't like it. It smells like grandma's perfume, haha...smells like rose and orange candy at the same time. The scent doesn't bother me. But if you don't like scented blush, I think this one isn't for you.

Rose D'or is a cool bubblegum pink with gold shimmer. Lilas D'or is a medium rosy pink with gold shimmer. If you don't like simmery blush, don't pick up the shades that have "D'or" because D'or means gold in French. Both of this blush, looks really good on my skin. The shimmer is very fine, gives a nice glow on my cheeks.

It has a very cute packaging, small and fit perfectly even on a small pouch. Easy to bring it everywhere. It has a mirror and a brush. Well, the brush is scratchy, not wearable. But don't toss the brush out! Let me tell you why =)

Some people said from their experience, this baked blush tend to harden after couple months or a year. It's getting hard to pick up the pigment. So use the small brush to remove the top layer of the blush, and you can get back the good texture and pigment of this blush =D

The lasting power is pretty good. I wear it for about 5 hours and it still stays beautifully on my cheeks. So I think it can last longer than 5 hours. The pigmented is super! Only one swipe and I get healthy flush on my cheeks. Love it =D

I can't complaint anything about this blush except the tendency to get harder, but it's not happening on my blush yet =)

There's 12 beautiful shade available that will suit your complexion and I really want to try Rose Frisson, Rose de Jaspe and Rose Coup de Foudre =)

Made in French

Price: Rp 88.000,- and Rp60.000 for the refill

Repurchase: Yes, I will try another shade

Now, swatch time =D

Silkygirl Blush Hour 02 Dune Rose

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

Hi, everyone...finally I'm coming with a new review =)
I'm so sorry it took an ages to write a review about this because I'm very busy with my study...
Now I will give a review about Silkygirl Blush Hour in 02 Dune Rose. I got this because I win the Silkygirl contest in August =D

This blush have a very pretty shade. It's shimmery soft coral pink. It's very natural when I apply it on my cheeks. Sometimes I wear it to go to college. Perfect for daily blush =D

This blush is pigmented but sadly, it's very powdery. It's more powdery than Silkygirl Shimmer Duo Blusher that I have. But it's ok because I love the shade =)
This blush can last about 6 hours on my cheeks then it tends to fade. The lasting power could be different if you have oily skin.

The brush is small but very soft. It can use to blend the blush. But if you don't like it you can use your own brush. The packaging is cute because I like everything in transparent case/packaging.

There is 4 pretty shades available: 01 Nectar Blush, 02 Dune Rose, 03 Flashing Rose, 04 Honeywood

Price: I got this as a gift but you can buy it for Rp 39500,00

Repurchase: Maybe I will try another shade

Made in Thailand

Now it's swatch time =D

Now this is the back of the packaging and the ingredients =)

Sleek Blush Flamingo and Pomegranate

Hi, how are you guys? It's been a long time since my last review. I'm so sorry because I've been so busy with my assignment. Now I'm back with another sleek blush to review, horray! I really like blush these days and Sleek in one of my favorite blushes because they're so pigmented and have a very unique shades.

I bought 2 more shades Flamingo (left) and Pomegranate (right). So now I have 4 Sleek blushes. Don't forget to check my Rose Gold and Life's a Peach here.

This is a unique pink shades for a blush. It's not just a regular classic pink blush. It's a bright pink with yellow undertone. Yes, it's a warm pink and the pink colour is just like a flamingo, lol. It's not matte but not shimmery. It has a sheen so Flamingo gives me a satin finish. Perfect for daily blush. Well, for me flamingo is a little bit hard to blend compared with the other so it takes a little time to blend it on my cheeks.

It's another unique colour from Sleek blush. Well, I have to admit that it looks very scary on the pan. It's a burgundy with pink undertone. But when I wear it, it gives me a unique purple-red-pink colour with pink and gold shimmer. I love it! It's perfect for autumn and winter and it's perfect for party at night too because I found that the colour is too heavy for me if I wear it for day.

Flamingo and Pomegranate is very pigmented so apply it with a light hand. I never swipe the surface to apply, just dab it with light hand. Take a little bit more if necessary. Well, they last for less than 5 hours, so for the lasting power they're not super. It will suit almost all skintone from light to dark =)

Made in Taiwan

Expiration date: 24 months

Price: Rp 110000,00

Will I repurchase? Yes, I would love to buy another shades if my Sleek blush already hit pan, hehehe...

Here's my swatches for you =)

Silkygirl Shimmer Duo Blusher Cheeky Peach

I bought another Silkygirl Shimmer Duo Blusher because I fall in love with silkygirl blush and I don't know why, lol. I really like blush, but I always bought an affordable blush only with a good quality. Silkygirl blush is a good quality blush for me. Actually, I want to buy Sunny Glow but I'm a little bit scared with the colour at the pan. I'm worry if it wont suit my skintone. I have light skintone, so finally I picked this Cheeky Peach. Sunny Glow and Rose Petal will looks good if you have medium-dark skintone, Cheeky Peach and Blushing Pink will looks good if you have light-medium skintone.

Cheeky Peach have same texture with the Blushing Pink. The shimmer shade of cheeky peach is slightly darker than the blushing pink. The matte shade of cheeky peach is a pretty soft peach. I love to mix the matte and shimmer together everytime I'm wearing them. It gives me a natural peachy pink cheeks. I love it! This blush last up to 6 hours on my cheeks.

Here's my swatch for you ^^

Sleek Blush Rose Gold and Life's a Peach

Well, finally I have blushes from Sleek. Sleek is a UK make up brand. I'm really curious about this product because every review that I read always said that this is the best drugstore blush out there. It's smooth, pigmented, and have a really beautiful shades.

For now I only have 2 and I can't wait to buy another shades. I have Rose Gold and Life's a Peach.

Without Flash

Left: Life's a Peach
Right: Rose Gold

Rose Gold
This shade is soooo beautiful. It's peachy rosy-pink with a gold shimmer. Very very pigmented. The first time I tried it, I swipe my big blush brush on the surface of the blush then swipe it to my cheek and the fact is I put too much on my cheek, lol. If you want to use this blush, just dab a little bit with your brush, and blend it well on your cheeks. Use a very light hand with this blush. It will give you a nice peachy rosy-pink cheeks with a really beautiful glow. A lot of woman are craving about this beautiful blush. Some woman named this shade "duochrome" because it looks like peachy gold and rosy-pink from side to side.

Life's a Peach
This is my first true peach blush. I always scared to try peach/orange blush. I always have pink or peachy pink blush. Everything is always with pink because I like dolly pink cheeks. I'm scared if peach blush won't suit my skintone. But I was wrong. This blush looks natural on my cheeks. This blush is not pigmented as the rose gold. It's a sheer blush but buildable so I don't have to worry if I will put too much on my cheeks. I need to swipe it 2-3 times to make them looks pretty on my cheeks. This peach blush is completely matte. This blush will looks good if you have light-medium skintone.

I know that it's hard to get this blush on the store so I get this from domestic online shop. Even this blush is hard to find in US. So, I feel lucky to have this blush in my case =D
Don't forget to grab them if you have a London trip or you can bought them online. I really recommend this blush for a high quality blush with a low price. The blush last on my cheeks for less than 5 hours :(

Made in Taiwan

Expiration date: 24 months (I think this blush will last forever because it's big enough for me. It contains 8 grams)

Price: Rp 110000,00

Will I repurchase? Absolutely! I can't wait to buy Flamingo and Pomegranate =D

Here's my swatches for you =)

Lip Smacker® Trio - Dr Pepper®/7UP®/A&W® Root Beer

Hi girls? Do you know Lip Smacker? If you're a lip balm lover, you must know and love this one sooo much =D

It seems like every girls in US have Lip Smacker in their bag and bedroom. In YouTube you can see that one girl can have more than 10 lip smackers in their collection. Why they're really lovable? Because Lip Smacker is made for a girls around 8 years and up, it moisturize your lips, and it smells veeeery good until you feel you want to eat them, lol.

Lip Smacker have a wide range of flavor. You can check their website here. But now I only have Lip Smacker® Trio in Dr Pepper®/7UP®/A&W® Root Beer. So baaad, because it's really hard to find them in Indonesia. When I sent a message to Lip Smacker, they said they can't send it in Indonesia, so I got this from domestic online shop.

The first one that I try is Dr Pepper®. It smells like a cherry but like a root beer at the same time. Smells so good. I never drink Dr Pepper® before because that beverage is not available in Indonesia so I can't compare the beverage and the Lip Smacker. The color is deep red in the tube and it gives me a tiny hint of red on my lips.

The second one is A&W® Root Beer. When I smell it, I know that it exactly like A&W® Root Beer that I usually drink. It smells fizzy just like a real root beer. The color is brown in the tube and it gives me a tiny hint of brown on my lips.

The third one is 7UP® in cherry. I never drink this beverage too. When I was a kid, I only ever drink the 7UP® in lime. This one smells like fizzy lime with a hint of cherry fragrance. The color is pink in the tube and it gives me a tiny hint of pink on my lips.

Overall, this product gives me a tiny hint of colour with subtle glossiness which is perfect. The fragrance is not too sweet but smells so good. I like to open the cap just to smell them, lol. It moisturize and soften my lips. Unfortunately, the lasting power is not so good. It's about 2-3 hours. But it's OK because I love to open them, re-apply n smell it again, hahaha.

Don't forget to visit my new Lip Smacker collection here

Made in USA

Price: Rp 100000,00 (yeah, it's pretty expensive because in US it's only US$4.50). I bought it from here.

Will I repurchase? Yes, if I can find them again but in another flavors =D (I really want to try delectable desert)
