[REVIEW] Too Cool For School Dinoplatz Cinema City CC Cream + Concealer (LOOOOVEEE!!!)

Monday, 21 November 2016

DISCLAIMER: My Skin Type is Combination to Oily, and my skin shade is Light Greenish Yellow. This product is sponsored by Clozette ID & TCFS but I only wrote honest review based on my experience. Thanks :) 

Assalaamu alaikum, Konnichiwa!!!

Today I'll be reviewing the newest beauty product I have, which is, TToo Cool For School Dinoplatz Cinema City CC Cream + Concealer. This is also my first TCFS product! I was always a bit curious everytime I passed the TCFS shop in Hong Kong, and I'm happy to know that TCFS is already coming to Indonesia.

This time, Clozette ID gave me a chance (as a Clozette Ambassador) to try this product, and I happily accepted it. So, let's go directly to what I think (so far) about this product~~


Product Name: 
Too Cool For School Dinoplatz Cinema City CC Cream + Concealer
Price:
IDR 499.000

The packaging was somehow kinda confusing, LOL. I didn't get any clear description about the product, not to mention the funny doodle-style art on the box XD

So I looked up somewhere, and found out that this product is a CC Cream that came with a concealer. This CC Cream Dinoplatz series have 3 variants, the other two was of the same CC Cream shade, but different "add-ons". One of them has a highlighter, and the other one has cheek blusher.


It claims that it has several functions:
- moisturizing 
- antiaging
- brightening
- firming
- smoothing
- evening out skintone
- SPF 30 UV Protection


Now let's see the shade of the cream on my skin


Before being spread, we could see that it was bright and pinkish (and you might notice that my skin was yellowish). But after being spread, it turned out that the cream could mix really well with my skin, given that the texture is actually really light / not thick. 

The first minutes, it might look slightly more pink / white on me, but several minutes later it would blend just fine. 

See the before after below:


The "After" one looked slightly more pink / white, but it wasn't really noticable and after several minutes it became more natural.

The coverage was really light, I got the impression that it was supposed to bring the natural-but-with-smaller-pores kind of skin, and THIS IS what I actually liked these days. I found "natural-looking-skin-texture makeup" really cute and sexy and I wanted to apply it on my daily life too. So I started liking this since the first time I tried it.

It spread easily on my combination to oily face, and after being spread evenly, I pressed the product into my pores with my fingers so it would stay in place for hours.

It also helped evening out my skin tone without making my skin looking dull from being all-same-color. Sure that our face needs a little bit of different tones in some parts (that's why people contour, right? haha).

About blemishes, most of the time I was fine with it as long as they were not very much, but sometimes I liked to cover them up too with concealer, so it's a good thing if I could love the concealer coming with this CC Cream, right?

So, I tried....


Well, it turned out that the concealer was too light to cover blemishes too~~~so... yeah, the next try, I skipped that baby on the end of the tube, and moved on to my next makeup step.

My next step after this CC Cream was actually my favourite Loose Powder with a yellowish shade. Surprisingly the texture of both products matched perfectly so my face was all ready with this CC Cream + Loose powder combo.



I've been using this for around 1 week, and so far I like it! My friends also said that the texture looked nice and so natural, thus giving a fresher and even younger look. 

I haven't found out yet about it's skin enhancing functions, of course, but I found this really nice to wear. 

After hours I would find some lights (from oil) on my nose area, but these days I wouldn't bother so much about that and simply tapped a tissue on my nose, lol. But overall, it stayed in place for hours.

It was easy to touch up again even after I washed my face with water. Usually, some products would leave a total mess after I washed my face with water, but this one was so fine, like it let the water absorbed to my skin, so I was happy :) 

Take a closer look to my skin, using the CC Cream, and my fav Loose Powder and Blush on. 


Not a perfect, flawless, porcelain-like look, but I liked it so much these days. 


Sometimes I found my face looking darker than my face really is  and my other skin area after using this  (you can see the pics below, compare my face and my hand, haha), despite of the fact the the product looked so white at first, but I still liked it anyway. 




So... that's it for this product's review, if you want to try this product or take a look at other TCFS products, you can visit it's counter in Mall Taman Anggrek, Jakarta, Indonesia.

Thanks for reading this far, and I hope you find it useful, and... see you on my next post!



[INSPIRED LOOK] Disney's Briar Rose / Princess Aurora Sleeping Beauty Makeup - with Pics + Video

Tuesday, 18 October 2016


Assalaamu alaikum, Konnichiwa!

Back again to my favorite kind of post! It's the "Inspired Look" post!

Today's inspiration is (just like what's written already in the title) ... Briar Rose, a.k.a Princess Aurora from Sleeping Beauty!!!

Disney Briar Rose / Princess Aurora Sleeping Beauty Makeup Kawaii Hijabi

Actually I did this makeup for a special video I made for one of my besties, Vika, who had a Birthday on last October 13th. She loves Aurora so much, and in our friendship, she's our Aurora, so in that video, I sang one of the songs in the Sleeping Beauty movie ("Once Upon A Dream") in Japanese, with this makeup.

Okay, shall we just start?

[PHOTOSET/ OOTD] Time Turner Travel : Souvenirs From The Future Me (Sponsored Items)

Monday, 17 October 2016


Assalaamu Alaikum, Konnichiwa.

So, a couple of weeks a go, I had a nice travel, using my old and beautiful Time Turner, to the future. I was not sure how much I'd turned the hourglass so I didn't know how long to the future I had gone. But there, I met the "Future Me". She looked exactly like me, but only more mature and wiser-looking. We had a nice and deep talk about dreams and reality, and what I should do in my current time to create a beautiful future.


 And, when it came close to the time for me to finally go back to my current time, the Future Me gave me two souvenirs: 

[PHOTOSET / FOTD] Princesses' Matte Lipstick Rules

Hi, Assalaamu Alaikum, Konnichiwa.

First of all, HAPPY ISLAMIC NEW YEAR, 1438 HIJRIYAH! I hope I (and also all of us muslims) can be a better person, move on to a way better and healthier phase of life in body, mind, and faith. Aaaaamiiin. 
 
This post here is a Photo Set showing me and my dear friend, Febi, who lives in Hong Kong as well, doing makeup play together. I actually didn't set any theme for this photo session before, I just asked her to rock in MATTE LIPSTICK together, wear soft pastel-colored clothes, and take photos together.

But the photos ended up looking so... PRINCESS-y to me!!! XD

Hi, Assalamu alaikum, Konnichiwa.

Here's just our casual photo set from a nice afternoon we spent in Wanchai, Hong Kong, on Eid Adha day 2016 (Sept 12, 2016). No, these were not what we worn on Eid Adha Praying Time. We changed into this after we arrived home from praying, and went to look for some nice Halal lunch / dinner around Wanchai (yes,it's easy to find them around this area).

[VLOG + BLOG] Back Again to Hong Kong Mid-Autumn Lantern Festival 2016!

Friday, 23 September 2016

Assalaamu Alaikum, Konnichiwa!

Today's post is about our (my husband and I) little adventure in the Hong Kong Mid-Autumn Lantern Festival 2016 on Thursday, September 15, 2016 at Victoria Park, Causeway Bay. I also made a post about the same festival that I attend two years ago, it is HERE.

The Mid-Autumn Festival is a harvest festival celebrated by ethnic Chinese. The festival is held on the night of the full moon between early September to early October of the Gregorian calendar. 


The festival was a time to enjoy the successful reaping of rice and wheat with food offerings made in honor of the moon. Today, it is still an occasion for outdoor reunions among friends and relatives to eat mooncakes and watch the moon, a symbol of harmony and unity.

A notable part of celebrating the holiday is the carrying of brightly lit lanterns, lighting lanterns on towers, or floating sky lanterns. Traditionally, the lantern has been used to symbolize fertility, and functioned mainly as a toy and decoration. But today the lantern has come to symbolize the festival itself.
 
I won't talk too much about it here, since I already VLOGGED about it for you, so JUST CLICK THE PHOTO BELOW TO WATCH THE VLOG ON YOUTUBE:

[UNBOXING] Althea Indonesia Korean Beauty Products Online Store 1st Birthday Box! #AltheaTurns1

Thursday, 8 September 2016


Assalaamu alaikum Konnichiwa!!!

How are you, Minna
Hope you are all happy, healthy--- genki, dayo ne! :D


Today's post is special, because it's about a special international online store that has been close to my heart (?) for a while now: It's ALTHEA from Korea! Ever since their first launching in Indonesia (link: http://id.althea.kr/ ), they have always brought smile to my face. Yes, why? Because they introduced themselves to me and took me to very fun Korean beauty shopping experiences including the variety of rare choices and cheaper price!

Today, I'd like to share one of the "Pink Beauty Box"-es (Beauty Box: the term used for the beauty products we bought, especially packed in a cute pink box by Althea and shipped from Korea) that I got from Althea, and it's really special because they sent it to me as a celebration for...

ALTHEA KOREA's 1ST BIRTHDAY ! #ALTHEATURNS1



Yes, they celebrated their 1st Birthday on July 20, so they shipped the box to my address in Jakarta, while I happened to spent my Ramadhan and Eid Fitr Holiday in Jakarta with my Husband. However, I hadn't received my Pink Box yet until the time I had to go back to Hong Kong, so I had to leave without bringing the box with me *sad*. Thankfully, my friend visited Hong Kong so I could ask her help to bring my Pink Box with her, so it's here!!!! 

I'm actually a bit sad that, because of this, I couldn't join in the fun celebration of sharing the special Birthday Pink Box with everyone on the D-Day, but hey! Better late than never! Sooo... let's unbox it right now! 

[INSPIRED LOOK] SAILOR PLUTO INSPIRED LOOK (MAKEOVER PLAY!)

Saturday, 27 August 2016

Assalaamu Alaikum, Konnichiwa!!!

Whoaa Whoaa Whoaaa, going back to be so productive on my blog really makes me happy!! Yeppp! today I'm baaack with a new post again! It's my fav kinda post, which is "Inspired Look" posts! Not to mention that this is also Sailor Moon-related! Yes! This is one of them!

And this time, I'll be showing you how I and two friends of mine, Ayya & Anggara (just call her Anggun by the way) created...

 A look inspired by... SAILOR PLUTO! 

SAILOR PLUTO SAILOR MOON INSPIRED MAKEUP LOOK COSPLAY

But there's a slightly different thing here. I wasn't the model for my own "experiment" this time, instead, it's one of my besties, Ayya, who volunteered herself to become my model. Actually, she is indeed my Sailor Pluto and I'm her Sailor Moon XD So, yeah, I'd always wanted to do this look on her. And thanks to Anggun, also one of my besties, who's SO CREATIVE, to help me with the very low-budget yet accurate handmade accessories for this look!

Now, let's take a look at Sailor Pluto.
