Wet n Wild Ultimate Sheer Tinted Moisturizer - Sunkissed

I don't know why, I but love to pull out a tan-sunkissed look lately. And I accidentally found the perfect partner in crime.

Meet Wet n Wild Sheer Tinted Moisturizer. At first I was curious about tinted moisturizer. Like all mommies out there, I must do everything in a blink of an eye, while multi-tasking. So applying - buffing - stippling a foundation on my face everytime I go out, with a baby clinging in my arms, is not such a good idea. I guess a tinted moisturizer can reduce the amount of frustation in my makeup ritual.

I was glad when I found out about Wet n Wild Tinted Moisturized, the price is super affordable, the reviews are great. But I didn't do my research well about the shades. I ordered this from drugstore.com which has only 2 shades: Natural and Sunkissed. I impulsively choosen Sunkissed without looking for any further information whether it will suit my skintone or not. And yes it's too dark for me, but in a good way, which is great. As I was saying before, I could get an instant tan effect using this. Although I also thinking to get Natural too because I love this tinted moisturizer.

The coverage is sheer at first but can be built to medium, it even out my skin tone nicely but can't cover my acne scars and dark circle. It gives me a dewy healthy finish and make my skin glow. I'm so happy that it includes SPF 15 in it, so when I was in hurry, I could just slap this into my face without any moisturizer/sunblock addition (note: I have a dry/combination skin). But I think you need to set it with a face powder to make it more last through the day.

The original price tag is $3.99 in drugstore.com, but I have to pay 60.000 idr (US$5.5) to get it here. The ingredients does not contain any silicone, so it won't clog my pores (another big yeaay). But it includes mineral oil, so be careful if you're allergic to it.

Urban Decay 15th Anniversary Eyeshadow Palette (Giveaway Prize)

Sometimes I can't believe my luck... I have a beautiful baby boy, a great husband, living in a nice house, and recently won an Urban Decay 15th Anniversary Eyeshadow Palette..

Yes, I am the lucky winner of Stephanie Tsang blog giveaway. You should really check her blog... She posts awesome nail art and gorgeus beauty and fashion looks. I'm soooo excited when the mail man arrived today and brought me this:

And, inside I found the most beautiful palette I've ever seen (no kidding). It's beautifully crafted, and you know, I'm a sucker for cute packaging...

The packaging is sleek and elegant. I really love the UD's logo on top of the box, it's made from an embossed translucent purple acrylic and looks very luxurious.

This palette was launched in 2011 to celebrate their 15th anniversary (obviously). It's limited edition with 15 exclusives new shades.

The eyeshadow are all shimmery except the matte black one named Blackout which you can find in Naked2 palette. I'll post the swatches later because now I'm too excited to do a proper swatch LOL!

Well, this just like a dream come true. Now I know, miracle does exist... Thanks again Steph!


Max Factor Bronzing Powder - Golden

I know that I have a medium skin tone and live in a tropical climate, but I've always wanted to have a healthy tan skin like J.Lo or Jessica Alba. Sunbathing is not a good idea because it made me look like one of the homeless people around the traffic light (if you have been to Indonesia, you'll know what I'm talking about), instead of looking like this:

So make up is a good idea, and of course to achieve a sleek sunkissed look, bronzer is a must. And when I was looking for an good, inexpensive bronzer, I found the review about this Max Factor Bronzing Powder. Never heard this brand before but it seems to have great review about the foundation and mascara.

Fortunately, there's a Max Factor counter nearby (so tired to shop everyting online), so I get to try it and see if it suits me. Turns out that I loooooveee it. The colour suits my skin tone perfectly. Not too light/dark, and it's pure bronze, not orange (some bronzer I've tried in the past turns orange on me). The best part it only costs me 50.000 idr (US$5.5) and it's huge! It's also made in Ireland (not China haha)

The bronzer is shimmery but not too much. It's also pigmented so you'd better apply it light-handed. And since you get a generous size, I think you can also use it as a body bronzer.



Sleek i Divine Eyeshadow Palette, PPQ (Limited Edition)

You know, I'm a sucker for colorful eyeshadow palette. So when I saw this Limited Edition Sleek Eyeshadow Palette, I knew that I must have it!

It's a collaboration between Sleek and PPQ brand for London Fashion Week. This palette has all the color you need to create an edgy runway look.

Like all Sleek Eyeshadow, the pigmentation is amazing, the texture is buttery and very easy to blend. Since I have dry lids, I can get away wearing this without an eye primer.

This palette includes some basic everyday colors and some head turning ones. But I think most of the colors are cool-toned. So for warmer toned girls like me, it requires an extra effort to blend some color together in order to match my skin-tone. So I reserved this palette for days when I'm in an artsy fartsy mood LOL.


Top row L-R Barry White, Black Box, Salt ‘N’ Peppermint, Simply Red, Pink Beret, Primal Green.
Bottom Row L-R: Fade To Grey, Blue Monday, Supernova, Chris De Burgundy, Lilac Allen, Golden Silvers.

The only downside for me is that the eyeshadows are made in China. Well, it explained the cheap price tag. But, I think I could deal with it for a while.

Mica, Talc, Paraffinum liquidum, Magnesium Stearate, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Dimethicone, Propylparaben, Methylparaben


NYX Xtreme Lip Cream - Skin Tone

Sometimes I wonder why do I love this brand so much. Now I know, it's because they keep making a high quality product with an affordable price.

This is my latest NYX obsession, the Xtreme Lip Cream. I never wear any lip product like this before. The texture is like a liquid lipstick, very moisturizing and has a lip gloss feels. The color is highly pigmented, very opaque, and covers my pigmented mauve lips perfectly. It last pretty long, and the color is still visible on my lips after I had dinner.

It comes in 11 gorgeus shades. I choose the Skin Tone shade which is a warm brown, and it looks great on my warm medium skin tone. This shade is perfect for a neutral/nude look and can be wear with bold smokey eyes. If you couldn't pull out a nude lips because it'll wash you out, you can try this one. Although I'm not sure if it'll look nice for people with fair/cool skin.

I got this for 60.000 idr (US$ 6.5) from my local online seller. So you can purchase a few shade without breaking you wallet (I'm thinking of getting another one, just can' decide what shade). The only downside is that it smell weird and plasticky like most of NYX lip products. But thankfully it dissapeared after a while.
