MAKARIZO Hair Texture Experience Green Tea Butter

Hello again (⌒∇⌒)ノ!
It's been a (quite) long time since my last posting (。-人-。) gomen nasai~ 
I was so into "holiday mood" so I'm kinda forget about my blog.

This time, I'm gonna review about MAKARIZO Hair Texture Experience Green Tea Butter. I got this product from MAKARIZO HFF 2013Actually, the main fragrance is the black chocolate one, but somehow I decided to buy this green tea butter instead. I like the fragrance of this product when I smelled the tester, it's soooo green tea and really calming ( ´ ▽ ` )

The packaging looks like a salon professional's item. Indeed, because this one is categorized in MAKARIZO professional line. Moreover, MAKARIZO also have customer line, such Hair Repair & Hair Recovery and T1.

MAKARIZO Hair Texture Experience Green Tea Butter contains antioxidant to maintain hair vitality and natural hair luster. The unique green tea fragrance also give calming and relax effect. The fragrance isn't too strong, it's just perfect. Use this product with proper hair massage technique (read it here), so you can get the feeling of total relax and refresh.

You can read the instruction how to use and ingredients in the photo above. The text is also written in Bahasa (as you can see in the previous photo above).
It's so nice to have a product that gives a brief information about the product in both Bahasa and English (*^▽^)

The cover is in green color which represent green tea (in my opinion) hehe (>ω<*)

This is how to open the cover. All you need is just rotate the cover until it opened. Somehow I feel it's a bit hard to open the cover. The cover is dragging so I need a little more power to open it.

At the first time I opened the product, it still sealed. So, make sure the seal isn't broken if you bought this product (*^-^*)

This is how it looks after I unseal the product. As you can see, the hole is quite small.
When the content is full it's easy to take the product out with my fingers, but when the content is already half full, I had a little trouble to take the product out with my (big) fingers. It's hard to dip my fingers into such a small hole (´・ω・`)

The cream is also in soft green color. But in fact, it doesn't look green on my hair while applying.
The texture is soft and thick. The amount of usage is depend on you (read : hair length and volume), but I always apply generous amount of this product onto my hair HAHA. Because I got damaged hair after coloring my hair (read the story here) and I'm running out of MAKARIZO Hair Energy with Kiwi Extract, so I hope with use it in generous amount would help my hair to recover faster (^∇^)

The cream has many green tiny beads (I don't know how to call it). It isn't burst when I massage it onto the hair or my palm, but with a little more power it wrecked. I think that green tiny beads is such a scrub, but I don't get the detail about what exactly those green tiny beads are. But to be honest, they look cute :p

After using this product for four times, I don't feel something really different with my hair. But, right after I use this product and dry my hair, I feel that my hair becomes softer and smells so good. The green tea fragrance doesn't last for such a long time. The fragrance stays for about a day on my hair.

So, if you looking up for a hair creambath product which can make you feel relax and have calming effect due to its fragrance, this one could be your choice (*≧▽≦)

Diva Soul Grey

I'm gonna review my first circle lenses ever! (*≧▽≦)
I got this pair of circle lenses (soft lenses) as a prize from Carryna Pratiwi's feat MyGeoLens Giveaway. Ms. Carryn let me choose either diva soul or diva queen as my prize and also the colour and lens power that I want. I picked diva soul in grey colour, plano (power : 0 - 0) since my both eyes are normal.

Product Name : Diva Softlens Soul
Manufacture : Diva
Country of Origin : Korea
Diameter : 14.80 mm
Water Content : 50 %
Life Span : 12 months

It comes in a bottle for each lens. As a first time softens user, I'm kinda confused about how to open the bottle because its seal is really hard to open with empty hand. So, I decided to open it with scissor (yes, scissor) because I'm lazy to get pliers (´~`)

This is how the lenses look from the bottom of the bottle. It has a nice pattern and I just can't wait to see them on my eyes (>o<) But, in fact, I need times to learn how to use circle lenses (´・ω・`) It's not as easy as I look my friends wearing their lenses. I need about 15 minutes to put each lens on my eyes HAHAHA. As the time passes, I'm sure I can put my lenses faster (^∇^)

My iris is brown coloured and it isn't big enough. It doesn't look like a doll eye without any help from makeup and also a help from circle lenses. I used to feel there's something less in my eye makeup before I wear circle lenses (´^`)

Kyaaaaaa~ ヾ(^∇^)
My eye really look kawaii with circle lens on it (*≧▽≦)

Diva Soul really has a nice pattern and it makes my eye looks bigger and more dolly look.
It's not too comfort to wear this lenses for a long time. I feel my eyes are dry after 4 hours usage and need to use eye drops.

Both eyes with circle lenses


Just look at the comparison, this circle lens really make a huge different on my eyes.
My real eyes have small diameter of iris and with Diva Soul, my iris looks bigger. Though, its diameter is just 14mm, but it already make my eyes bigger.

If you are interested with this circle lenses, you can buy them at MyGeoLens Shop in the section of Diva Softlens Soul. Price? IDR 52.500,- for each bottle. It's an affordable price, right?(^∀^)

Shu Uemura Unmask Palette Blue

This is my very first Shu Uemura Palette! Yes, I got this baby from Shu Uemura OB Princess Party by being a winner in Cherry Blossom Princess (*^▽^)/

So what's so special about this palette?
This palette is one of the family Shu Uemura Blossom Spring Collection 2013 Collection.

"re-discover the joy of shu uemura’s professional atelier of color with three new special edition matte textured refills in charming pastel shades in a refillable quad custom case.Now everyone can easily achieve pro-level make-up gradation, color payoff, and ultra-smooth matte texture.
“Matte texture gives a more soothing, warm, and soft impression than pearl or glitter textures. Even when exposed to a strong light, matte texture maintains its true color. Pale, soft, and warm colors are best suited to matte textures.”
As soothing as a dreamy blue sky-an amplified aqua blue and delicate lilac shade that will leave a cool, feminine impression. Blue and violet gradation creates a rather cool spring look. Use yellow as the highlight and accent.

The packaging is cute with the "unmask" logo to celebrate 30th Anniversary of the brand. The palette itself is slim and light weight, which is perfect for travelling.

This palette also including a mirror inside which covered with a sticky plastic to protect the mirror. You can peel it off, though. But look at those stars which is too cute to be removed (´・ω・`) So this is my reason why I still don't peel it off until today.

This palette contains five matte eyeshadows in different colours, with two larger base shades and three smaller accent shades. I prefer the square eyeshadows palette over these long, so I think this palette will be enough for about six or seven eyeshadows (*´▽`*)

The shades in this palette include :

  • UB 1 : light, nude beige
  • UB 2 : soft, butter yellow
  • UB 3 : pastel, sky blue
  • UB 4 : vibrant, aqua blue
  • UB 5 : pale, delicate lilac

Look at the swatches ( ゚▽゚)
I think, they're not pigmented enough, except the ocean blue one. On my eyelid, all of them are just become sheer, yet the ocean blue is still buildable and the colour can be popping instead of another four shades. Need for an eyeshadow base before applying these eyeshadows to make the colours more stands out and long lasting on the eyelid.
