GIRLY ENOUGH?


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

CURRENT CRAVE: NYX SIMPLY VAMP LIP CREAM


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

SCATTERED LIFE

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 ARSENAL


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.

TASTE OF A SWEETER LIFE


I don't really use any kind of pants in my daily outfits. I use skinny jeans most of the time because they're so easy to mix but lately I feel kinda adventurous (in bottoms department lol) so I decided to buy these wide leg pants from Cotton Ink. This is my first attempt to use the pants. Paired them with loose t-shirt and oxford shoes to get a simple and relaxed look. Added some bracelets to spice things up a bit. What do you think? 
Anyway, I loveeee this t-shirt to death. I think I'm gonna purchase more of this in every color available ;D

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! :)
