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!
