I believe in the power of base makeup. I wasn’t born with a perfect porcelain skin, so I depend (a lot) on my base. Foundation, concealer, and powder are totally my best friend. When Maybelline Fit Me Range was launched, I was super excited because they carry two kind of foundation, Dewy + Smooth for Normal to Dry Skin and Matte + Poreless for Oily Skin. And of course, having an oily skin, I love the Matte + Poreless one.

Cons: they didn’t come with pump, so be careful when pouring it.

So, what’s the difference between both foundation?

I tested on blotting paper as I always does with other foundation of mine, and check that out. The right one is the Dewy + Smooth, look at oil that surrounds the foundation. Meanwhile, the Matte + Poreless on the left side, doesn’t have that much oil surround it.

Let’s move on to concealer, shall we?

I love the wand, seriously! it picked up the right amount of concealer to cover one zit. The texture is just right, not too watery nor too thick and blended well when applied with finger or beauty blender. Choose the lighter shade for highlight and the correct shade for your skin tone to conceal everything, from blemishes, spots and dark circles.

Last but not least, FIT ME POWDER.

Like the foundation, they come with two choices, for SET + SMOOTH for normal to dry skin and MATTE + PORELESS for normal to oily skin. Comes with sponge and mirror, also perfect for touch ups.

My tips to look super natural: use Matte + Poreless foundation and end with SET + SMOOTH powder. It won’t give you that dead matte look (see my pic below).

For the coverage, I might say that it doesn’t fall on heavy category. Concealer is still a must. However, to cover big pores and stay true matte for hours, it did a very good job. Totally recommended.

And of course, I also try the DEWY + SMOOTH foundation, end with Matte + Poreless Powder to make it less shiny.

What do you think of the comparison? I believe the Dewy + Smooth Foundation gives more healthy look, even though I am not a big fan of the texture. More liquidy than the Matte + Poreless Foundation and it feels stickier. But I love the final result after I set with Matte + Poreless Powder. I believe the powder help to minimize my big pores as well as toning down the stickiness of the Dewy + Smooth Foundation. As for the coverage, this also needs concealer to help cover things up.

Final Verdict: these Fit Me range is definitely my new favorite. I’ll mix things up depends on my skin condition which can be super oily at one moment and dry the other. I will repurchase them because I use base makeup every day, it sounds silly to splurge on high end ones.


…. it’s an attitude! 

As a firm believer of that quotes and as a person who literally dressed in monochrome almost every single day, I’m still a girl who believe in the power of pink. I do have a pink bag and of course, pink lipsticks.

Earlier this week, me and fellow bloggers were invited by L’Oréal Paris Indonesia for the launch of their latest lipstick collection, COLOR RICHE LA VIE EN ROSE. At the same event, they also introduced their latest Brand Ambassador, Maudy Ayunda. At only 21 years old, she scored one of her dreams to become L’Oréal Paris Brand Ambassador. 

This year, L’Oréal Paris will focus on makeup, other than skincare or haircare and they’ll name it MAKEUP DESIGNER. It’s great to know that they will make this brand accessible to customers, not professional makeup artist. Yup, they will encourage normal people like us to be our own makeup designer, because we know our face better than everyone else. 

Sharing you the pics from the event. 

Me and Maudy dressed up like Parisians. 

They pinkified the venue. 

Back to the lipstick collection….here in Indonesia, they only bring 6 out of 12 shades. They chose only the pink that most suitable for Indonesians skin tone, so the pinks won’t be too pale on our mostly yellowish skin tone. And these 6 shades were inspired by L’Oréal Paris Ambassadors, Blake Lively, Eva Longoria, Liya Kebede, Jennifer Lopez, Doutzen Kroes and Aishwarya Rai.

Last but not least, the swatch!

From left to right: Jlo (Rose Lotus), Eva (Nymphea), Doutzen (Camelia), Aishwarya (Iris), Liya (Fuchsia) and Blake (Primrose).

Matte finish with no dry feeling. That’s what I thought about these lovely pink shades. Unlike some matte finish lipstick, these felt velvety when applied and didn’t give me that one dimensional flat look. By the end of the day, they won’t cracked. Like most lipstick, the shades might vary on different skin tone. So I really suggest to try them on yourself, instead of just judging from the swatch. 

My favorite out of 6 shades? Eva Longoria’s Nymphea. Peachy pink with slightly yellow-ish pigment, perfect to complement my warm skin undertone. I believe it made my face look brighter when I wore it. Check my instagram @shintarosvita to see each swatch on my lips.

The same accessories designer who created Lady Gaga’s headpiece in her video “Telephone” collaborates with Swatch.

Fred Butler, London-based accessories designer created this limited edition “Dodecahedron Collision”. Bright, colorful and extra quirky, they’re only 777 watches available worldwide.

Feeling like wearing tattoo? Hold your horses and try it non-permanently. Try this limited edition watches from Swatch first.

Teams up with French tattoo artist, Tin-Tin and Emmanuelle Antille (Swiss visual artist), Swatch released 5 limited edition watches altogether in Tattoo Art Watch Collection. This certainly is not the first time the Swiss watchmakers collaborate with artists. They’ve been doing this since the mid-1980s. 

See how they draw their inspiration from the world of tattoo art and translated it beautifully for the wrist wear.
