NEWEST ADDITION: YSL ROUGE VOLUPTE LIPSTICK IN 33 ROSE NEILLIA


My first ever YSL lipstick yayyyy! Mainly bought this because of the packaging hehe and also I'm curious about the color since many people said that this is a dupe for the super famous Rouge Pur Couture 52 Rosy Coral. I don't know if it's really a dupe or not because I don't have Rosy Coral and I don't think I'm going to buy that one because I rarely use very bright lipstick. Besides, Rosy Coral is very hard to find these days haha. Rose Neillia is also hard to find.. I bought mine online from a Facebook online store since Jakarta's counters have no Rose Neillia nor Rosy Coral in hand.
I think Rose Neillia is very bright and have the neon quality that Rosy Coral have. The formula is very creamy and soft. This is not the easiest lipstick to use because it's very pigmented and kinda slippery so I have to be very careful when I apply it. It has a slight sheen when worn, I blot it because I prefer matte lips, especially with bright colors like this. I've used this once so I'm not gonna blab too much here ;P 
Soooo, what's your recent beauty purchase? Let me know! :)

INDIA CIRCUS HAUL

Are you someone who take notes regularly? I often forget things and I really need to write things down but I don't because I'm lazy. Sigh. Not good. So when India Circus offered me some things from their website, I immediately picked this cute notebook. I guess with a cute notebook I'll be able to defeat my laziness hehe. Maybe not many of you know that one of my favorite color is pink so it was an easy pick. I also picked this blank greeting cards because I think they will be handy when I need to say something in gifts. They're blank so I can use them for any occasion (well except funerals..)

If you haven't heard of India Circus before, it's basically an online shop based in India that sells many kind of things from cards to rugs, umbrellas to wall arts, almost every decorative things for your home and your creative lifestyle. Everything in the website has India touch to them, a bit colorful but still sophisticated and pulled together.

The notebook feels nice and sturdy but the plastic overlay (?) is a bit imperfect on the back side. Bad batch maybe? But aside from that, I enjoy this notebook. My sis likes it too. She's like, "Hey, what's that?? So cuteeee!!" 
Too bad this particular notebook is not available on the site anymore, but you can see some other designs that are equally pretty. This one with taxis on the cover looks cute, too! It kinda reminds me of Kate Spade.. 

The greeting card pack comes in two colors, lime-white and orange-pink. The inside is a blank white page that you can personalize yourselves. I'm gonna write greetings for every gift I wrap since now hehehe. The paper feels nice and thick, the print on the cards are also nice. The only downside of this greeting card is they don't come with envelopes. I like the lime-white combination a lot, not that I don't like the other one, I just like the lime-white one better :) Anyway, the orange-pink ones remind me of Caroline Robianto ;) 
Again, too bad this card pack is already not available on India Circus' website but YOU NEED TO SEE THIS ONE. Super pretty, don't you think?? 

*Disclaimer: I received these items as a gift that I picked myself. All opinions stated are honest and purely mine.

ETUDE HOUSE PURE WATER BAOBAB



Just a few hours ago Etude House posted an Instagram picture of what I think a new skincare line. I've never really tried Etude's skincare line before, I've only tried their random little sachet samples but never the full range. 
When I saw the photo above, I'm intrigued because I know Baobab is also known as The Tree of Life but I don't know what advantages Baobab can give to the skin. After a little research, I know that Baobab fruit contains high level of vitamin C and antioxidant so it's nice for skin's health. 
I really want to try this range.. 53% of Baobab water sounds promising, the products look refreshing, and not to mention the cute packaging. Who am I kidding, it's Etude, it must be cute haha. Can't wait for the launch date!

BABY STEPS

Last week (June 21st), Vanela, the personality/modelling school I attended held an event at Central Park Mall. I was assigned as a model hehe. I walked together with a girl that acts as my daughter because dress I was wearing was a mom-and-daughter kinda outfit. She's a shy girl if I can say so myself, I just met her that day lol. Instant mom and daughter pair. I was a bit scared for the walk. Not because there were a lot of people there but because my "daughter" is so shy and walks really slowly (I don't know if it's because she's shy in front of a lot of people or because she's just a little girl so she walks normally in that pace). I'm afraid once she sees her real mother she'll run away from me ahahahaha! Despite the fact that I look at her a lot when I walk, I can say my first catwalk experience is very enjoyable :D

Hello daughter!! *dia ga mau foto sama guweeeeh T_T*

The clothes above are all by Soure. There are also clothes by Coconut Island, Qbysy, Little Dhy, and Rashberry. Beside assigned as model for Soure, I was also assigned as fashion stylist for Coconut Island. I was assigned because Kak Wendy (Vanela's teacher) knows that I wanna be a stylist and I need experience. Thank you so much for the opportunity, Ko Wen, if you're reading this!!

It's very tiring but I really enjoy working for events like this (as crew, as stylist, as anything lol) and can't wait for the next events!

MY GLASSES/SUNGLASSES COLLECTION

Beside shoes, I also love glasses and sunglasses. I love quirky and trendy sunglasses, the ones my mom doesn't understand hahaha. I don't wear them often but I like to buy them. I don't have too much, though, because every time I wanna buy new glasses I'd automatically think of my glasses at home, sitting doing nothing and rarely used lol. I buy cute glasses purely just for my happiness because I don't really wear them. While sunglasses are more usable for me because I can wear them when I'm driving or when I'm travelling. Although I have to admit I don't always use sunglasses when I'm driving. I only use them when I feel the sun's too bright. Eh, and if you like to take selfie and too lazy to put eye makeup, you can just pop your sunglasses on and you're selfie-ready :D :D 

Newest member of the family. Bought them just a few days ago at Topman Kota Kasablanka because they're on sale. Originally they were also for my brother but apparently my brother's head size is way above average so these are a bit too small for him. I guess it means they're mine lol. They're on sale for under IDR150,000.

If you know Alexander Wang cat eye sunglasses on his early days, you must recognize this pair immediately. These are not Wang's, Wang's are too expensive for me. I bought these from a fellow Female Daily member for IDR60,000.

I might not look like one but I'm a Hello Kitty fan. So when these kitty glasses were available on Gowigasa, I bought them right away. And if you can tell, there's no lenses on the glasses which means they're perfect for photo shoots because there'll be no light flashing back from the lens :p 

..I also bought the soft pink one hehehe

Simple big black sunglasses can do no wrong, and this pair looks super cool too! Bought these from Gowigasa for around IDR120,000 but I might be wrong.. The quality is very nice, the frame feels sturdy and thick. 

I have another one with leopard frame too! Hahaha. Gowigasa sent me wrong sunglasses twice when I ordered the black glasses above, so they gave me this one as an apologize gift. 

These ones are from Cheap Monday. I think the items from Cheap Monday aren't cheap.. I wonder why they named the company 'cheap' when the items are not cheap. Well whatever. I bought the sunglasses from Urban Outfitters when they're having a sale. These are $10, but I bought them through local online shop so I have to pay IDR150,000 which I think is still affordable for Cheap Monday.

These are Ray-ban Clubmaster knockoff. I bought them a long long time ago.. More than 4 years ago I think. Bought them from a little shop around South Jakarta area. I forgot the name of the store as well as the price hehe. Blame Robert Pattinson for wearing this particular style and looking super handsome.

Freebie from Gogirl! Magazine a few years ago. They scream holiday so much! A lil bit too small for my face but I think it's not a big problem :D 

I saw too many bloggers who wear round sunglasses and I thought I need one too lol. Bought this one from a facebook shop which I already forgot the name.. They cost more or less IDR60,000. I feel like the bridge of these sunglasses is very wide so it doesn't emphasize my big nose hahaha.

Bought these glasses because I think they resemble Harry Potter's glasses hehehe I love love love Harry Potter series, both the book and the movie. I love Draco Malfoy (Tom Felton FTW!) the most :D who's your fave Harry Potter character? Anyway I bought the glasses from Kelontong Sihir.. Totally forgot the price. 

A present from my uni girls! They know my sunglasses style so well eh? Hahaha I almost bought these myself when I saw them but I didn't because they're just so quirky (in a good way) and I'm not sure if I can ever use them in real life.. And they bought them for my birthday pressie! Wohooo!! You can't really see with the smiley layer down. These glasses are a bit heavy so I don't use them when I'm driving too because I can't be bothered to fix my sunglasses once every 10mins when I'm driving. Although these don't have many functions, I still love them hehehe

Last pair! Bought them at the super famous weekend market, Chatuchak Weekend Market in Bangkok. They're very cheap, more or less IDR30,000. But the quality is not that great too. The frame feels flimsy. They look like my Cheap Monday sunglasses above. I bought these just because I forgot to bring my sunglasses to the market while it was scorching hot that day. 

So yeah I think that's all of my glasses and sunglasses.. And looking at my glasses storage, I still have a room or two for another pair hehe I'm eyeing on this pair and this pair from Zalora

Which one is your favorite? Do you have particular sunglasses style that you like? Do share! :D

BUT FIRST..

 ..let me take a selfie. ;D

Behind the scene: crossing your legs makes your legs look longer. This is a tip from the super stylish Chriselle Lim. ;) 
Sooooo last week Sasa and Agus came to my house to take some photos. Sasa told me she wants "fashion blogger photos" after seeing a photo of me that I posted to my Path timeline hahaha to be honest I'm not an expert in this field, in fact my photos and poses are not so fashion blogger-ish. But we took some photos anyway, just to have fun :D
See Sasa's pictures on her Instagram, you can't see Agus' because she posted the photos on her Path only (well you can see her's if you're a friend of her), and see mine here! Hahaha of course, where else would I post my pics.


Details: Forever21 blazer, New Look shirt, Promod jeans, H&M rings, June+Julia boots

WHAT'S IN MY EVERYDAY MAKEUP BAG




Totally out of topic: my biceps hurt like hell!! I had a work out class on Monday and meanwhile my thighs and bum are already healed from squats, my biceps are still in pain. Hahaha I hope they'll heal soon.
Anywaysss, let's get into the post. Today I'm showing you what's in my everyday makeup bag. I bring all of these everywhere in my bag.. Well, except when I use clutch because the pouch won't fit hehe. You might have seen some of the products here.
I got the pouch from Estee Lauder. I believe it's a freebie from my mom's skincare shopping. What's inside:
Rudy Hadisuwarno Hair Intense Repair Serum: to moisturize my hair ends and tame baby hairs above my head. Got this from Beauty Treats Indonesia May box.
Rohto Tears
Lush Santa Baby: bought this mainly because of the name lol but it's a nice red shade that can be natural or very bold (this thing is crazy pigmented) so it can instantly freshen up my face
Compact Mirror: not Anna Sui. I bought cheap one from random shop
Cherry Culture Watermelon Lip Balm: a little bit too oily but it's cheap and does the job of moisturizing my lips so it's ok
Perfumies in Hard to Get: nice bubblegum scent, perfect for day time when I need a little bit fragrance touch up
MAC Lipstick shade Sunny Seoul: soft pink lips can do no wrong, such a no-brainer lipstick
Acnes Oil Control Film
Trish McEvoy Precious Pink Jasmine perfume vial: this one is more of a night time scent. Smells like jasmine (hence the name, duh)
Maybelline Baby Lips Lip Balm
Elf Eyebrow Kit shade Medium
TheBalm Sexy Mama Powder
Maybelline Clear Smooth Minerals Concealer: since it'll be too much hassle bringing a bottle of foundation, I bring a concealer instead.
Ecotools Retractable Kabuki Brush
Nail Clippers from Daiso
Tarte Provocateur Pressed Mineral Powder shade Light
Maybelline Bold Matte Lipstick shade MAT7: a little bit pale but it's nice if I decide to draw strong eyebrows that day. This lipstick can be used as a base for Santa Baby too.

So, what's in your makeup bag?
