Estée Lauder Pure Color EyeShadow Duo #08 Platinum

I know Estée Lauder brand since I was in junior high school. But ofc, I can't afford it with my own pocket money x) So I used to share Estée Lauder's products with my mom. Until one day, I got invited by ci Carnellin to attend Estée Lauder Beautiful Touch with Bobby Wu. As goody bag, I got this Estée Lauder Pure Color EyeShadow Duo. Unfortunately, I came late so I can't choose which shade that I want. I got #08 Platinum instead because this is the only shade left.

Its tag price is still patch onto the package box :p You can afford this eyeshadow for IDR 360.000,-

The ingredients

The packaging itself is super nice with elegant style. The bottom part is made by glass, it's transparent! And oh, I love how the top part comes in gold color and can reflect anything.

It's thin and comes in handy size.

The Estée Lauder's logo is embossed on the cover. It looks elegant with gold and glass packaging.

I got #08 Platinum

It comes with a dual applicator (sponge and brush) and also a divider is inserted between the eyeshadow and the mirror. The divider itself is also a place for the applicator.

Take a look closer to the pan..

For photoshoot reason, I remove the divider so we can look clearly to the eyeshadow's color (but ofc, I didn't throw the divider away to keep all things inside neat). As you can see, the Estée Lauder's logo also embossed on the eyeshadow pan. The emboss doesn't easily gone, btw.

The dual applicator

Estée Lauder also give a dual applicator (sponge and brush) for applying the eyeshadow. The quality seems so so, but the brush is quite good.

The eyeshadow's colours is pigmented enough. I thought it will give sheer shade when applying, but I was wrong. It's pigmented, even without using eyeshadow base. All colours are shimmering and I like to use the white one as highlighter for inner corner of my eyes and on waterline.

Well, a good price will also give you a good quality. Since this eyeshadow is pricey enough (at least for me, this one is pricey), so it's worth it with the result. It gives pigmented colours with luxury packaging.

Dolly Wink Eye Shadow #03 Smoky Brown

I know Dolly Wink is famous for its eyeliner, and yes I already have it in my makeup case :) But somehow, I'm curious about their eyeshadow. Dolly Wink had launched their newest packaging and removed the booklet in this newest package :(

By the way, this is my first Dolly Wink Eye Shadow. So I can't compare the oldest one with this new one. I bought this from Mirielle Beauté for IDR 195.000,-

Dolly Wink Eye Shadow #03 Smokey Brown in new packaging

 The packaging from back side

Dolly Wink doesn't include a booklet (like I've read in other review about this eye shadow in old packaging), instead they give a mini tutorial in the back side of the packaging.

To get the pan, you can open the plastic box from right / left side then grab the pan out

 The eye shadow pan (front side)

The packaging itself is cute in brown colored, made from plastic with a heart shaped glass. Minus point - it doesn't have mirror, so for me it's not a simple thing to bring for traveling, though it has an applicator inside.

The eye shadow pan (back side)

When it opened, you'll find four eye shadow colors and an applicator

This contains four shimmering eye shadow colors

The dual sponge as applicator. Its quality isn't good enough, so it will be better to use your own brush for better result :)

 Swatches (without and with flash)

Dolly Wink Eye Shadow #03 Smoky Brown contains four eye shadow colors and all are shimmering (which is I like ; cause I do love shimmering ones). Overall, just one (out of four) colors is pigmented enough. For me, this will give such a natural smoky eye makeup instead of the vibrant one.

So, for those who looking for very pigmented or (just) pigmented eye shadow colors, this Dolly Wink Eye Shadow #03 Smoky Brown isn't a good choice for you.

And this eye shadow is powdery. I always end up with mess every time I use this one.I need to tap down my brush before applying onto my eyelid to prevent the eye shadow powder falling on my face.

How big the pan is...

To be honest, I was shocked when I received a package, opened it and found out that the pan is really small. Just as big as my palm (and FYI, my palm isn't wide enough). Its diameter is only 6 cm #LOL. It's really small for me (compared to my other eye shadow pan with at least four colors).

I think this one is good for those who always look for a cute packaging and those who adore Japanese makeup product (since Dolly Wink is famous in Japan). But for you who looking for a "worth it" eye shadow, this one isn't a good choice ; judging by its small size with quite expensive price.

Lancôme Hypnôse Star Mascara Launcing Event

On Saturday, May 18th 2013, I was invited to Lancôme Hypnôse Star Mascara Launcing Event at SEIBU Grand Indonesia. I was excited to be invited to this event since I was so curios about Lancôme's Betty Boop edition, not forget to mention Lancôme's newest mascara which is Hypnôse Star Mascara.

Well, Lancôme Indonesia really make a buzz about Hypnôse Star Mascara. They make a quiz on their fan page and everyone can win a Lancôme Hypnôse Star Mascara by playing a game or make a facebook cover photo with their application. Honestly, I've joined it but haven't win yet. Haha. So I'm really happy that I can join their launching event :)

Well, I was invited by ci Carnellin and she said to come at 10 AM. And I did! Haha. But when I came there at 10, there was no body. So I decided to have a break fast at Burger King.

I came back at 11 and see there was a girl got a skin consultation

I saw another girl got a makeover there

I got free 2 minutes aura and makeover by attending this launching event, yay!

This is me while doing skin consultation

My skin was checked by these instruments

I was doing firmness test. My score is 79 which is good :) Normal score at least 50

I also got sebum test and hydration test. And my score is lo. I'm not sure either it was a true result or false positive, since I did use a bloating paper just before I got the skin tests. But that time, the BA said my skin is dry. And yeah, I have panda eyes -.-

This is me before makeover

I got 2 minutes aura with these product. The BA also removed my makeup so I can get a makeover.

Me after 2 minutes aura and makeup removal

I got a makeover using Betty Boop's Collection. I have to choose 2 colors from all of these.

I was totally confused until Ms. Putri said the gold one (T002) is cute so I picked it up and also a dark brown color (T305) for combination

The result of my eye makeup using Betty Boop's makeup collection. Sorry, I forgot to close my eye x)

These are what the BA used for my makeup

This is me and my BA/MUA who doing my makeup

Me - ? - Ci Carnellin - Jesslyn - Kak Tia - Ci Chell

The event itself didn't take a long time. I finished at around 12.30 PM. And I felt like I'm the one who take longest time for skin consultation and makeover. Haha. Jesslyn and Kak Tia did come after me having a skin consultation and they both finished at the same time with me. Haha.
I got a polaroid photo at Betty Boop Photo Booth

The hampers 

I am totally happy and thank full to be invited to this event. My mom and I like to use Lancôme's products since old time. I know Lancôme since I was on junior high school but this is the first time I attend a Lancôme's event. Happy to the fullest :)

By the way, you should try Lancôme Hypnôse Star Mascara, it's really a good mascara and waterproof ;) Don't forget to check their Betty Boop's eyeshadow collection from Ombre Hypnôse. All are shimmering eyeshadow and pigmented. They have colors for either daily or party makeup. Go to the nearest Lancôme store in your city and try their new Hypnôse makeup collection!
