Asian…rejoice. The latest products from Yves Saint Laurent have been especially created for us.

Who doesn’t love YSL ‘Magic Pen’ Touche Éclat? Reportedly sold one every 10 seconds around the world, this little gold stick has been a favorite among beauty addicts since its launch in 1991. Well, good news for those who want more of this highlighter in different texture. Now, it comes with the foundation and compact. Le Teint Touche Éclat UV & Compact will help us who live in this crazy hot and humid weather, to (literally) stop melting and stay radiant plus flawless all day. Yup, these lightweight foundation and ultra soft compact foundation are specially developed by YSL for Asian Complexion. Thanks YSL to keep us in your mind. Hold your horses, as these fabulous duo will reach Jakarta’s store sometime next month. 



My eternal search (and maybe yours, too) for that perfect under eyes concealer might be over.

Call me a late bloomer for falling in love with Korean beauty products. Guilty as charged. But as they said, “better late than never”, so did my experience with SKINFOOD Salmon Darkcircle Concealer Cream and SKINFOOD Salmon Darkcircle Powder.

The almost look identical products (both only 2.5gr, by the way), don’t smell like salmon. Taken from the SKINFOOD web site, the concealer contains salmon extract and oil, while the powder is rich in omega 3 fatty acid, vitamin A & E, with Nano-coating.

Too bad for us Indonesians, these dynamic duos are not available in Jakarta yet, so the nearest country to get them is Singapore or Malaysia. I got mine in Malaysia, both for RM 106.80 (you don’t have to buy in a set, they come separately). For the concealer, the nice girl at SKINFOOD Malaysia chose #1 (Salmon Blooming) for me, and the powder only come in one color.

What do I love about both:

       Texture : The concealer is creamy, yet it didn’t leave any shine especially after I applied the powder. As for the powder, its’ super duper tiny particles (thanks to Nano-coating) set the whole concealer into a matte, soft and non-cracked looking under eyes. For above picture, I only use one (yes, one) layer of concealer and powder, after eye cream.

       Blending Factor : Like soul mates, they were meant to be together. In this case, use together. Never swipe on concealer as it might show those lines, just pat lightly from inside corner to outer corner. Set with powder, dust them lightly with your own brush (don’t use the tiny puff provided which comes with the powder).

       Coverage : Dark circles? What dark circles? Lines? What lines? I’m surprised to see how they also covered most of my milias (see those tiny bumps under my left eye? Perfect for corrective concealing of any kind, I must say.
