REVIEW: EMINA Eye Do! Crayon Pour Les Yeux Liner (Black)


Halo, aku kembali! Bertepatan dengan hari ketiga Idul Fitri, aku ingin mengucakan "minal aidin wal faidzin". Semoga ibadah dan hal baik yang kita kerjakan di bulan ramadan bisa diterima oleh Allah. Eid Mubarak! Time to celebrate with family and friends.
So, kali ini aku akan mengulas tentang eyeliner. Aku mendapatkan eyeliner ini dari blogger gathering bersama Emina bulan Maret lalu. Sebenarnya, kalau untuk eyeliner, aku lebih suka menggunakan gel liner karena hasilnya lebih pekat dan tahan lama.  Aku juga lebih suka tekstur gel liner karena teksturnya lembut sekali walaupun biasanya gel liner lebih mahal dari tipe eyeliner yang lain. Surprisingly, tekstur Emina Eye Do! Crayon Liner ini mirip dengan gel liner. It's creamy!

MORE ABOUT EMINA:
Emina adalah salah satu brand lokal Indonesia. Brand ini juga memiliki desain yang cute dan girly.  Emina merupakan sister brand dari Wardah dan Make Over yang kalian tahu mereka juga punya kualitas yang cukup bagus dan banyak digemari di Indonesia. Kalau Wardah cenderung lebih ditujukan untuk wanita muslimah karena mengunggulkan produknya yang halal, dan Make Over yang lebih bold, sedangkan Emina menurutku lebih ditujukan untuk remaja karena packagingnya yang sangat fresh dan so playful. Tapi, bukan berarti Emina hanya untuk para remaja saja ya. Emina tetap diminati oleh banyak wanita. Brand Emina tidak hanya memproduksi makeup, tetapi juga skincare dan semuanya berharga relatif murah. Sangat ramah di kantong, bukan?
Kunjungi website mereka untuk tau lebih: www.eminacosmetics.com

MORE ABOUT THE PRODUCT:

Emina Eye Do! Crayon Liner memiliki tiga warna yang berbeda; hitam, coklat, dan ungu. Aku mendapatkan warna yang hitam. Eyeliner ini juga cocok untuk semua acara. Jika kalian ingin tampil bold untuk acara-acara formal dan membutuhkan makeup tebal, kalian dapat mengaplikasikan eyeliner ini. Eyeliner ini juga cocok untuk sehari-hari jika kamu mengaplikasikannya tipis-tipis. Crayon Liner Emina ini dilengkapi dengan smudger yang bisa kamu kreasikan untuk look-look yang berbeda. Dilengkapi juga dengan rautan, jadi sangat praktis.


SWATCH:
Foto di bawah ini adalah foto pertama kalinya aku mengaplikasikan Crayon Liner ini. Seperti yang sudah aku jelaskan di atas, tekstur Crayon Liner ini sangat creamy! I really like it. It's similar to gel liner. Warnanya pun hitam pekat seperti gel liner. Ya, memang semirip itu. Mungkin kesannya lebay, tapi Emina Crayon Liner ini memang sangat creamy. Aku juga sempat tidak percaya dengan ke-creamy-annya. Karena, aku memang tidak begitu suka dengan tipe liner yang seperti ini. Aku kira, teksturnya akan seperti pensil liner, tapi ternyata sangat creamy. Kita juga bisa mengaplikasikannya tipis-tipis untuk daily. You have to try!


THE REVIEW:
Overall, aku suka dengan produk ini. Aku sangat suka dengan packagingnya, mudah dibawa kemana-mana. And the box, the box! It's really cute! Salut sih, karena produk-produk Indonesia sekarang sudah sangat berkembang dan bisa bersaing dengan produk luar. Bisa dibilang, tidak kalah juga kualitasnya. Apalagi, dengan harga yang sangat terjangkau namun dengan kualitas yang bagus juga. Bentuk crayonnya juga membuat kita mudah untuk mengaplikasikannya. Tapi, setelah beberapa kali dipakai, akan berubah bentuk dan setelah di raut juga tidak begitu sama dengan aslinya. Atau memang aku saja yang gak bisa meraut ya? Hehe.
  • Teksturnya creamy
  • Bisa membentuk eyeliner yang super tipis dan pekat
  • Mudah diaplikasikan
  • Bisa digunakan untuk smokey finish (menggunakan smudger)

WILL I RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT?
Definitely, it's a yes! Aku akan merekomendasikan produk ini ke teman-temanku (actaully, I did it already) karena crayon liner ini worth to buy.

REVIEW: Kissui BriSea Vital Moisture Ampoule Perfect-Kit Mask

Recently, I've been regularly using sheet mask for my weekly treatment. I like to do treatment with mask. I usually have my DIY green tea mask and clay mask for once or twice a week (each). I also have some stocks of sheet masks but, I rarely use it. So, I decided to do the sheet mask treatment every week. There are some brands of sheet masks that I have, but mostly I bought in Taiwan (if you read my post about Taiwan haul here and here, you might already know it).

This week, I use Kissui sheet mask from Taiwan that I got it free. If you read this post, you might be knowing that I've got a free mask after I bought several products in Cosmed Taiwan. It was around a year ago and I haven't use it until today. Haha.

So, I didn't expect that this sheet mask has several layers -_- and I didn't know how to use it until I have to ask my Taiwanese friend to help me read the direction that is shown behind the packaging. LOL.

By the help of my friend, I found out that it has three layers, but I only should use one of it which is the middle one. The first layer was the typical sheet mask cover to protect its shape, the second is the mask, and the third (the blue one) is to help us applying the sheet mask easier on to the face.


The sheet mask is thinner than the other sheet masks I've ever used. Probably, that's the reason why the blue layer exist. LOL. It's so helpful, indeed. Cz, without the blue layer, it's kinda hard to apply the sheet mask on to the face.


Recently, my face has been a little dry, since I didn't take care really well after I got sick. So, I choose this sheet mask (among all sheet masks I have) cause I need to moisturize my skin. This mask is not only moisturizing but it can brighten my skin instantly. After I use this mask, my face becomes so smooth, cleaner, and brighter. Too bad I can't show you the before-after picture. I did capture it but, I didn't wear scarf so I can't post it here :( But overall, this mask is pretty good. It's just a little bit sticky-feeling on my face after I release the sheet. However, it doesn't really that bad.

Review:
+ Moisturizes well
+ Brighten my face
+ Makes my face looks cleaner
+ Makes my face smoother
- A little too sticky

Honestly, I didn't really know about this brand since I got this free. What I know is this product is a Taiwanese brand that worth to try. This might be a new brand from Taiwan cause I didn't get a lot information after I searched for this mask on google. Do you guys know about this brand? Have you tried it? Let me know in the comment below :)

Make Your Own Cushion Foundation (DIY Cushion Foundation)


Cushion right now is happening. This beauty innovation from Korea can attract beauty enthusiasts to (at least, just) try this product. The fact that cushion is more simple to use, it makes most girls would like it. And me too..
Now there are many brands offer this new invention in make up. Not only Korean brands, but western cosmetic brands also offer the cushion products. The products are also varied, from BB Cushion, CC Cushion, until Cushion Foundation. There are literally a lot to choose. Hmm.. Perhaps, are you too confused to choose between all of them even after search for the reviews? I got the idea, why don't we make our own Cushion? So, here it is, I'm gonna show you how..

The first thing you need is a Cushion case. I have one that I bought at Althea, a Korean beauty e-commerce that ships to Indonesia (as well as Malaysia and some Southeast Asian countries). I got it from "It's My" brand for only around IDR 60.000. It's super cheap, I know. Other Korean brand I know that also sell Cushion is Innisfree. Innisfree has hundreds of cute Cushion case that you can choose what you like but the price is a little higher than It's My Cushion case. I bought this Cushion case around a year ago before Innisfree sells their new Cushion case.


It's My Cushion case have some choices of colors and design, but I choose this black, because it's just simple and elegant. This Cushion case is included with the container, sponge, and its puff. So, you don't need to buy it separately. From what I know, the new Cushion case from Innisfree has separate the container and the case, so we have to buy it separately.


Since it's DIY, the other things you need are your own cosmetics. This time, I fill the Cushion case with Foundation and Steam Cream. You can customize it yourself. I've done some other formulas; such as BB Cream + Sunscreen + Essence, or CC Cream + Sunscreen + Moisturizer/Serum. Actually, if you add Sunscreen nor Moisturizer or Serum, you can minimize the time of layering the skincare. So, you don't need to apply Sunscreen or Moisturizer before. It safes your time!

I use Revlon Colorstay Foundation for normal/oily skin which has a matte result, but I like to do a dewy make up (but the fact that I have an oily/combination skin). Then I added the Steam Cream that contains Argan Oil from Secret Key. I really like to use this Steam Cream as my moisturizer, actually. However, the Steam Cream also fits perfectly with my Foundation. It creates a perfect dewy finish without getting too oily, since I use a matte Foundation.

Here are the steps:

  1. Release the container from the case
  2. Fill up the container with Foundation and Steam Cream without removing the sponge. Ration 2:1 for the Foundation.
  3. Mix and stir, both the Foundation and Steam Cream with cotton buds. Then push them until it disappears from the surface (see picture number 4).
  4. Ready to apply!

I used to remove sponge and insert the cosmetics in but in the end, the foundation didn't pop out well on the puff. However, after I fill it without removing the sponge out, the Foundation will appear fully in the puff like the picture above.


Don't forget to check the consistency of the DIY Cushion Foundation you made. Honestly, the Foundation that I have (Revlon Colorstay Foundation) has the high coverage; however, if it's turned into Cushion, it doesn't have high coverage anymore since I've been mixed it with the Steam Cream. But it's perfect for daily use anyway.

So, do you want to make your own Cushion like me?

I hope my post is helpful and happy trying!
