Saturday two weeks ago (I know! So late, eh? Sorry) I went to Female Daily HQ to attend Female Daily Mini Blogger Workshop with The Body Shop. Just intermezzo: I feel like Female Daily HQ's location is on the other side of the world lol because I live in West Jakarta and the HQ is in Kemang, South Jakarta. Good thing the workshop was held early in the morning, around 8.30, so the street is still quiet empty :D 
The highlight products that morning was Instablur, Moisture White Shiso 2 in 1 Brightening Eye Cream, and Nutriganics Drops of Youth. I came home with those products, yay! 
There were 20 participants that day. I'm so happy that I can see some FD forum members in real life :D We were taught the right way to clean our face using The Body Shop's Vitamin E range, how to apply Instablur, and many more. I'm not going to write too much, let's just see the pictures!

The new Instablur and All-in-One BB Cream
The Body Shop's Color Crush lipsticks, I like! Too bad I didn't see the shade number!! :(
Makeup using The Body Shop's products. I'm using Instablur, All-in-One BB Cream shade 02, Pressed Face Powder, Colour Crush Lipstick, and Shimmer Waves (the bronze one) as a blush
With Mbak Affi and Lia!
In case you're wondering, here are the blog addresses of the participants that day. Go visit them all!

Last but of course not least, my OOTD haha. Wearing a more casual twist on this outfit I styled before :D
Details: H&M kimono, New Look shirt, Zara belt and heels, Promod jeans.

I know it's already October but hey, things I bought at September 30th should be counted as things I bought in September right? And then I need time to gather the items and take some pictures so I guess that explains why my September haul is posted in October :) 

So these are the items I bought in September. Some beauty bits and some fashion bobs. Actually I also bought this skirt (click the link, darling) in September but it's too big to be photographed in these pictures lol. 

There was a big sale on Luxola a few weeks ago and although recently they went local and lots of brands are not available, I still took a chance to get my hands on Bourjois CC Cream and Lime Crime Velvetines. I also bought Real Techniques Powder Brush from Luxola at another time.
There was a buy one get one promo at Guardian for Maybelline Magnum mascara. I can't pass sucha great offer so I bought two Maybelline Magnum mascara.  I've never tried this variant before but I know Maybelline have the best mascaras out there and I've never feel disappointed with Maybelline mascaras before.  I only took one for the photo because I've used the other one hehe. 

The Dior pearl earrings are a big hit nowadays so I bought some of the Chinese version of them lol. I actually don't wear earrings often but I'm curious so I bought some Dior-inspired earrings from Mangga Dua haha. They're IDR50k per pair (Dior's is around $400 per pair *die*) so they won't broke your bank account.  

The last ones are the things I bought at the most recent Brightspot Market. I bought a necklace and a bracelet from Klar. I've been eyeing on their collection since months ago, I want all pieces from their collection but I know that would be a waste of money because I don't use jewelry that often. So when I saw them at the Brightspot market, I tried everything that catches my eyes and brought home things that I love the most. The necklace and bracelet that I bought are clear thus they will be very versatile. 

Temporary tattoo is trending right now and I'm really happy with that because I always adore chic tattoos but I have commitment issues (and I'm afraid of needles lol) so I don't see myself inking my skin in the near future. Temporary tattoo is totally the answer to my problem! I forgot what's the name of the vendor that sells this particular one but temporary tattoos are easy to get nowadays from Instagram stores. This one says "Magic is something you make" in case you're having difficulties in reading mirrored words. 

That's all I got in the month of September. What's your haul? Let me know, leave the link of your haul in the comment section, please :)

Both the blouse and the skirt are new things in my closet. This combo is not something I go for but I'm currently trying to explore new styles so this came in mind. Sometimes you wanna be something you are not, don't you? 
Anyway, do I look girly enough? ;D

Details: Zara mint blouse, The Attic pink skirt, Forever21 necklace

The new chubby lip crayon from NYX totally caught my heart. This Simply Vamp collection made my heart race when I first saw this image. They are available at Ulta for $6.49 each. From top to bottom: Temptress, Bewitched, She Devil, Enamored, Covet, Aphrodisiac. I think the Simply Vamp collection is perfect for the upcoming Fall season.. Indonesia doesn't have Fall season though haha it's always Summer here but I like to follow the western season for makeup and fashion :p 

NYX also came with another three Simply collections. Simply Red, Simply Pink, and Simply Nude. The names are pretty self-explanatory I guess. Those collections look tempting too but not as tempting as the vamps. I ADORE dark/berry/burgundy colors. I don't use them daily but I really like the look of dark lips. 

I'm eyeing Temptress, She Devil, and Bewitched. But I think Bewitched would be similar to Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick by Kate Moss 107? I don't know.. Anyone has tried them both? Please let me know what you think.. I already ordered 107 and I don't need two too similar color on my lipstick collection. I think I'm gonna order Temptress and She Devil first :D

I can't believe I don't post anything here for more than 2 weeks. I didn't realize my laziness has reached that level. Sigh. I really need to put myself together and try to update this blog more often. 
I don't even know what I'm gonna post today lol. I guess I'll just let you know that I'm still alive and silently reading everyone's blog without leaving any comments. Eh if you're interested, I have an Instagram. I'm more active there, although not super active.. But at least I'm more active there than here lol. My Instagram username is @vinasagita. I actually wanted @pinapina so that I can have uniform username for blog, ig, and twitter. Too bad someone used @pinapina already and what makes me frustrated is she/he only posted one, I repeat, ONE photo on that account!! Shoot. Oh well, whatever. Follow me if you're interested hehe
I also more active on twitter. My twitter username, of course, is @pinapina. Actually just like Instagram, I'm not super active there lol. But I tweet more than I blog :P 
One social media I use the most is Path but I keep my Path private so I'm not gonna share it here ehehehe. 
Ok I don't know what else to write.. I'll just post some random things below.

Lip balm is one of my must-have items. I'm guilty for not having enough water throughout the day so my lips are always dry. I hate having dry lips because I love lipsticks and guess what's my fave lipstick finish? Matte. I love matte lipsticks. But matte lipstick and dry lips combo are the worst so I'm always on the hunt for best lip balm to help me moisturize my lips. Here are the balms that I'm currently using.

Smith's Rosebud Salve
Bought this because I've heard many great reviews about this balm. It looks pink but goes on translucent on the lips. I have to say I'm agree with good reviews I found because it makes my lips hydrated for hours. Not whole day, but long hours. I love the product but I hate the packaging. It comes in a tin and I need to dip my finger to get the product. Some people concerned about the amount of bacteria but for me that's not the case. I hate it because I have long nails and the balm will stuck under my nails. 
You just need a bit of the balm, otherwise you'll be left with greasy lips. Anyway, actually this is a multi-tasking balm, you can use it anywhere on your body that needs moisture. Get Smith's Rosebud Salve here

Cherry Culture Watermelon Lip Balm
Smells nice! I love the scent, but the lip balm itself is a bit too oily for my liking. I can't put my lipstick on right after I use the balm. I have to wait a few mins and then blot the remaining balm away. It helps to hydrate but I don't use it often because of the greasy feeling it leaves. Get Cherry Culture Watermelon Lip Balm here

EOS Honeydew Honeysuckle Smooth Sphere Lip Balm
Despite the fame, I find this funny-looking lip balm doesn't do anything for my lips. Yes, it's cute and smells nice but I don't find it hydrates my lips. Maybe it's for someone who just wanna maintain the moisture on their lips instead of intense moisture? It doesn't leave any disturbing layer on the lips though, so you can use your lipstick right after the balm. Get EOS Honeydew Honeysuckle Smooth Sphere Lip Balm here.

The Body Shop Strawberry Born Lippy
Got this from my aunt. I don't really like it.. because of the pot packaging (same reason with Rosebud Salve I stated above) and it feels sticky on the lips. It smells nice and gives a little wash of color to my lips but I don't like the stickiness and it feels like it leaves a film layer on top of my lips so I rarely use it. Get The Body Shop Strawberry Born Lippy here

Maybelline Smoothing Cherry Baby Lips
My go-to lip balm! I actually got this lip balm from my sister, she doesn't like the scent so she gave it to me. The scent is a bit strong but it doesn't stay forever on the lips. The lip balm itself is kinda hard, not as mushy as Cherry Culture's, but I still can feel the product on my lips. It's not too oily but it helps to moisturize, I need to reapply a few times in a day but it's not a big problem for me. The moisturizing effect is not as long as the Smith's but it's decent. It feels comfortable on the lips and I can use lipstick right after I use this balm. Get Maybelline Smoothing Cherry Baby Lips here.

Smith's Strawberry Lip Balm
I think this is the tube version of Rosebud Salve but in different scent haha. I like this one better than the one in tin because it's more convenient. Smith's Strawberry Lip Balm has slanted tip with a little hole so I just need to squeeze the tube a bit and slather the product to my lips. I always use this balm after I brush my teeth because I believe the foam from my toothpaste dries my lips like crazy. Get Smith's Strawberry Lip Balm here.
