MY MAKEUP DIET

As my skin is getting healed from fungal-acne, I am trying my best to stay out of any heavy makeup (read: full-coverage foundation). In fact, every Saturday and Sunday (read: non-working days), I try my best to go foundation free. If I need a rest from my working days, so should my skin.

To tell you the truth, I feel better without my foundation on nowadays. Not that I want to flaunt my better skin, but I feel like…if you don’t have anything much to cover, why bother? I used to pile on layers of concealers and foundations on my skin just to cover my uneven texture. But now I realized it was like pouring salt to the sea. Base can’t cover bumps and uneven skin. Great skin are the best base we could ever have, trust me.

These are my makeup routine before

Current faves:

  • Face Powder by Lizzie Parra: this super light powder really sets foundation beautifully and effortlessly to a natural matte finish.
  • Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Gel Foundation: recommended by Simple Skincare Science for fungal acne sufferers. It doesn’t feel heavy on skin with a light coverage.
  • Lakme 9 to 5 Pure Rouge Blusher: super intense blush, one dip is enough to cover one cheek. Because its’ long lasting power, I also use this as my eyeshadow.
  • Etude House Curl Fix! Long Lash Mascara: not a cheap Korean mascara, for sure. But this really did what it claims, long and curl. I love the short wand, very easy to apply.
  • Rollover Reaction Chunky! Lip & Cheek Crayon in Maccio: I left the liquid matte lipstick hype already, and opt for a subtle ones. I love this mid-toned pink shade and the creamy but not sticky texture (I skipped lip balm if I use this).

REVIEW: ROLLOVER REACTION CHUNKY! SET LIP CRAYONS

Always got excited when Rollover Reaction, one of my favorite local brands launched something new. These included.

DSCF6208 copy

WHAT ARE THESE?
Well, as the name stated, they are primarily lip crayons. But these can also be used on cheeks and eyes.

PACKAGING
Sleek black matte crayon tube. When in a rush, it’s kind of hard to open and twist the cap open. But, I love how the tip is round and chubby, I believe it’s easier to draw along the cupid lines.

PRICE
IDR 625K for a set of five, and sold separately at IDR 125K each

SHADES & SWATCHES
They are available in five shades which names were inspired by artists.

rothkoRothko is a plum berry shade

 

kahlo.jpgKahlo is a brownish red

 

carloCarlo is a coral nude (my favorite to use on eyelids, the sheerest of them all)

 

pablo.jpgPablo is a deep fuchsia

 

maccio.jpgMaccio is a mid-toned pink (this one is obviously my overall favorite).

HOW TO APPLY
Our fingers are the best tool, trust me! Apply directly on lips and cheeks then blend with fourth finger. On lids, take some with your index finger and tap along the eyelids.

FEEL & TEXTURE
Lately, I was not in the mood for liquid matte lipstick, so these are the winner for me. It has satin finish but not shiny, feel very moist but ain’t greasy. I applied lip balm for swatches above, but I feel if you want to skip, it won’t be drying. They are not long-lasting, but if you like stain, these will leave a nice-looking stain after awhile.

Review: Pixy Lip Cream

Excuse me for quite a long hiatus. I was so stressed when our government shut down tumblr here in Indonesia. You see, I started my blog in tumblr, then I always export my content from tumblr to wordpress. That’s why almost all of my posts are gone now, especially for my Indonesian readers. Anyway, now I write on wordpress, please mind me while I have to deal with my sadness of losing my tumblr account.

Enough sobbing, now let’s get to the review of my latest haul. Pixy is a local brand, licensed by Mandom Corporation Japan. This lip cream is not a new product, but I bought it because one of the Indonesian beauty vloggers said this is her best liquid lipstick of 2017. Let’s see…..

DSCF4650 copy

I purchased (another) mauve shade, number 07 Vintage Rose. I believe they launched this nude shade back in August 2017.

Packaging: I have no complain of the packaging, you can see the real shade on the end of the tube. Not to be mistaken with the wand handle.

Wand: slim and small (I am not a big fan of the wand)

DSCF4652 copy

Formula: vanilla scented, light and dry easily with a matte result. It didn’t transfer easily, once it’s set, it is set!

unnamed

Final words: love the soft mauve shade, but not the formula. I applied lip balm before applying this lip cream, but still it looked dry on my lips and accentuate all the lip lines that I have. Will not repurchase.
