Merry Christmas for all people who celebrate, may the spirit of Christmas bring you peace, the goldness of Christmas give you hope, and the warmth of Christmas grant you love J
althought I didn’t celebrate Christmas day because I’m not Christian, but so many my friend celebrate this day, and I’m also excited with this day because so many red and gold color, I love them so much <3 and please forgive me didn’t make Christmas look, forget to bought the dress and anything, I just remember when Christmas eve. btw, today I’ll make softlens review, lets move to review J

around 1 month ago, Japan Softlens send me email and ask me, which softlens who I love to review.  so, I pick ageha natural brown and ageha icy grey, the pattern maybe look so similar with geo but totally different, and I never try lens with natural brown pattern. some of my friend try ageha icy grey and the pattern look so cute too, so I also choose icy grey. but, for this chance I just make review one of them, I’ll make review Ageha Natural Brown from Japan Softlens

box packaging : 4/5
the box come in pink magenta color with flower pattern and butterfly. maybe that’s why the brand give name ageha because the means of butterfly is ageha. the box look so lux with glossy effect, until I can see the reflection of my camera on the box. so far I love with the design packaging althought they come in magenta color, maybe magenta will give lux and glossy effect than other color. the box made by hard paper.

in the back of the box you can find the short description and Japan Softlens website. this lens produced in Japan, but their manufactured by Dueba Contact Lens from Korea. they also completely with short warning, please to place your lens in cool place and far from direct sunlight, because sunlight can make the age of lens more shorter.

every softlens who sale by Japan Softlens always included with brochure guide how to use the lens, how to clean the lens, and how to keep and place the softlens. but unfortunately, because this softlens produced in Japan, so the brochure guide also come in Japanese language. poor me, I just can read the hiragana and katakana, and I don’t know the means of them, just see the picture which I can find on the brochure.

and every softlens who you bought from Japan Softlens, you will get a lens case for free. it’s sound interesting right? tt can help you to place the lens after using.

this softlens it’s so different with other softlens which always seen. this lens didn’t come in bottle packaging, but come in blister packaging. it make this lens always safety and hygienist. some of you maybe know if lens which come in bottle packaging more have a risk, because some fake seller can be reuse the bottle for make fake softlens. I always believe if blister packaging is good more than in bottle packaging.

if you want have natural brown color in your iris, this lens is perfect. the color isn’t too obvious, so this lens will be perfect. now, I just use softlens with natural color because I didn’t want make some people crazy or think if I’m freak using lens with attractive color. so, I more choose transparent or natural brown color, because I have dark brown iris. this color blend perfectly on my eyes.

comfort : 4/5
every softlens who I’m wearing, I need to adaptation with them. and I can say if this lens quite comfortable on my eyes. althought the diameter is quite big for my eyes but they didn’t make my eyes feel tired more fast. in everyday my activity, I always in room which full with AC, but this lens isn’t make my eyes dry or anything, but I still put eye drop for less iritation and dry eyes every 3 hours. if you want know more story from first day until now I’m using this lens, just scroll down babe

enlargement : 4/5
the enlargement is quite enough for me, look so natural and still give dolly effect. I love use this lens for “ulzzang” look, because the pattern, the color, and the diameter make this lens perfect to make “ulzzang” look. this lens give 16.00 mm look when in use, althought the diameter just 14.5 mm. but, this lens still can give big enlargement in my small eyes. honestly, my iris just around 14.00 mm until 14.2 mm. if you want buy this lens, make sure if your base curve is fit in your eyes.

short story from day one until day six experience using Ageha Natural Brown
day one
, I need adaptation to make the lens fit on my eyes. the times to make the lens fit is around 30 minute, their most quickly than other lens which I ever try except transparent lens. I’m using for around 5 hours in day first to make my eyes feel comfortable with this lens. day two, time to make lens fit with my eyes more fast than first day, I just need around 20 minute, and it perfectly fit on my eyes. I’m using for around 6 hours then remove from my eyes. my eyes still in good condition. day three, more fast 5 minute than day two to make the lens fit on my eyes. and I’m try to use around 7 hours and they still good without irritation or feel tired.

day four, I just need 5 minute to make the lens fit on my eyes. and I use for around in 8 hours, I think it’s quite long for me, but my eyes still in good condition and didn’t feel tired. day five, when I’m put the lens on my eyes, their directly can fit with the iris, maybe because my eyes quite enough for make adaptation with the lens. I’m using this lens for around 9 hours, one hour more than yesterday. honestly, my eyes still so good and there’s no red eyes. day six, the also can directly fit on my eyes, I didn’t need to make adaptation again. and I’m using for around 10 hours, it’s quite long for me and my eyes didn’t feel tired or irritation. notes, I put eye drops in every 3 hours, I’m doing my activity in room full with AC and it make my eyes more fast to dry, and I’m also have sensitive eyes. 

what do you think about this lens on my eyes? honestly, I didn’t edit the lens to give the tears look on the lens. they because the lighting or another portrait, but I still didn’t know how to make it -.-

[review] : Etude House Sweet Recipe Cupcake All Over Color #PK002 Strawberry Chiffon Cake

hai, back again with me  >w<
I really want to make a tutorial make up, but I have problem with photoshop, I still can’t use photoshop. so, I’ll learn more hard next time and for filling my rest time I’ll make a review. yeah, I just can make a review a this moment. hope you still enjoy read my blog

today review is Etude House Sweet Recipe Cupcake All Over Color in #PK002 Strawberry Chiffon Cake. maybe some of you ever heard or ever try this product. I think before I bought this product, this product will means a lot with me. but, I make a wrong think. so, let’s see what we have now ^^

box packaging : 4.5/5
damn, the box packaging look so cute. I’m swear, my eyes so sparkling when I see the box packaging. come in pink color, which materials hard transparent plastic with tag all over color. I can’t say anything, it’s perfectly make me die with their cute design

beside of the box, Idk with the translate. poor me with Korean language, I never can be read their hangul. but, you can see if the packaging it’s too cute to be true. good job for Etude House.

back of the box, you can see product description and I love the picture so much. more over cute when I see, and also come in pink color. ok, I know if I’m can’t stop my self if I see something which look cute and sparkling my eyes. btw, this product can be use for eyeshadow, cheek blush, and lip product. seen promising and good function in just one product. sugoii !!

packaging : 4/5
I love Etude House concept for this one, it make the product look so sweet and yummy. this product make presentation if this product is cupcake with flavor strawberry chiffon cake, with strawberry, whipping cream, and rainbow rice chocolate as a topping. feel so hungry and want it the product, I’m kidding la~
honestly, I’m quite disappointed because the packaging made with tin material. tin really easy to corrosion, and it will be harm and dangerous with the product inside. I know if paint, make less the level of corrosion, but I’m still disagree with this packaging. I more choose materials which made by plastic or glass, it more safety than from tin. and they come in jar type.

-note of product-
product : Etude House Sweet Recipe Cupcake All Over Color
shade : #PK002 Strawberry Chiffon Cake
brand : Etude House
volume : 10 gram (0.35 oz)
made in Korea

applicator : 0/5
believe me, there’s no applicator to take the cream inside. there’s no spatula or mini spoon or anything. and I’m quite disappointed with it. how can I take the cream inside without spatula, clean hand isn’t good enough to make the cream free from bacteria. that’s why I give zero point from five, because there’s no applicator inside. I think Etude House use a lid or something and put the spatula inside the product, but I make a wrong think. so, keep clean your hand before touch the cream.

-color chart-
Etude House Sweet Recipe Cupcake All Over Colour have 5 shade different and for every shade they give name like cupcake. #PK001 Blueberry Cheese Cake, ahh I love this cake so much, this is my favourite cake but I didn’t think this is my favourite shade. the color is purple and I think this color will suitable for fair skin. #PK002 Strawberry Chiffon Cake, the most favourite color for me at this moment, their come in soft pink color. #OR201 Orange Choux Cake, the color like orange, yeah orange. I think the scent also orange, feel so fresh. #OR202 Peach Sugar cake, the shade of this color is peach, look so natural. and the last is #RD301 Raspberry Mousse Cake, this one is another my favourite color. and mine is #PK002 Strawberry Chiffon Cake, come in soft pink color who I love so much >w<

shade test : 5/5
I give perfect point because the color look so perfect for me. come in soft pink color, I think this color will suitable for my skin, and it’s true. the color a little bit give glossy effect, but not too much at all. like other cream, the color look same with their advertisement and pink like strawberry milkshake.
texture : 3/5
as a cream shadow or cream blush, I think it’s quite good. but, when I see their advertisement, when in use the cream more look like choux base or whipping cream. I’m so excited if I can get the cream like whipping cream, but the true condition is this product isn’t like that. but, it’s ok. I still can use this cream as eyeshadow, cheek blush, or lip cream.
scent : 4/5
I’m quite shocked, when I’m open the jar I can smell the sweet scent that’s so yummy. I can feel strawberry cake inside. I love the scent so much. as a girl who love with scent like chocolate, vanilla, and something that have sweet scent. this product will completely my product collection which have sweet scent.

how to use : 3.5/5
I think 3.5 as point from 5 quite enough for this cream when in use. as you can see, you can use this cream as cream eyeshadow, and I give 3.5 point from 5. the cream easy to blend on my eyes, but for someone who have oily eye lid, I’m recommendation to use eye primer before using this cream eyeshadow, because if you don’t using, after a few hours the cream eyeshadow will be look messy on your eyes. 4 point from 5 as cream blush, it’s so different when I’m using as a cream blush. their quite stay for a few hours on my oily face, and the color still in good condition. the color make my face look more fresh with soft pink natural color. and I give 2.5 point from 5 as lip cream. I didn’t think again to make this cream as lip cream, because it make my lip dry.

all over : 3.5/5
all over it’s so-so. the packaging made in jar type with tin material, and I’m disagree with that. there’s no applicator to take the cream such spatula or mini spoon. with small size, this product very travel friendly. you can get 3 function in just one product such eyeshadow,  cheek blush, and lip cream. the texture isn’t like who I think before, but still quite good as a cream blush. I love the sweet scent from this product. and plus point from this product is the color in their chart color advertisement look so similar with the real product. this picture is me using this product as cheek blush.

where to buy? I got this from Rie Butik, for around 7 USD or 68 IDR
recommended? I don’t think so.
re-purchase? I think no.

travel friendly size, sweet scent, soft pink natural color, good for cream blush, easy to blend, cheap price.

made in jar with tin material, there’s no spatula, make my lips dry.

hope you enjoy this post and happy weekend. with love, -chici-

[review] : Etude House BB Magic Cream

ahh, finally after more than 3 weeks I can come back to my blog and writing a post. and for this chance I’ll make a review about one of my favourite bb cream at this time. this bb cream is one of my list haul on november haul, click here for read post.

I have Etude House BB Magic Cream, for long time ago I really want to try this bb cream after see the advertisement on internet, this bb cream really can give perfect coverage on face, should like magic like their name. so, I enter this bb cream on my wish list. let’s see what we can find from this bb cream ^^

box packaging : 4/5
the box packaging make me feel sparkling with illumination color, the color can be change when you see from different portrait and lighting. I love Etude House concept, because it more look magic and I can see rainbow color on their box packaging, maybe some glitter can make this box more sparkling and magic, that’s just in my mind la~

can you see the magic stick on this box packaging, the magic stick make sparkling and the sparkling coloring the box, haha XD
the box packaging I think it look plain because no lace or some cute design, but the main color such violet and illumination color like rainbow make this box packaging look more live. I love violet color

in the back and side of the box full of description but in Korean hangul. if you can’t read hangul, don’t worry you can find in English translate on other side box. if you have some allergic with the ingredients, you can find in beside of the box, so you can make sure to bought this bb cream or no.

-note of product-
product : Etude House BB Magic Cream (Moisturizing)
brand : Etude House
volume : 35 ml
made in Korea

packaging : 3.5/5
the packaging look plain, there’s no cute design or anything. the box packaging look more cute than the product. this bb cream come in tube type, the tube isn’t to big or small, but still travel friendly. tube quite hard and didn’t easy to broken. the main color of tube is violet, I think the color it’s so soft. the cap also come with transparent violet color, so we can see inside the cap, what the applicator inside. in the back of tube same with the box, the back tube full of description product but in Korean hangul.

-claim of product-
this bb cream can offers natural looking coverage that nourishes and corrects skin tone.

applicator : 4.5/5
as you may know if some bb cream which come in tube type, we need to squeeze the tube to getting out the bb cream. but this bb cream come in tube pump, so we just need pump the applicator to get them. I more choose this applicator, why? because with this tube pump, it can minimalism the bacteria which can enter to bb cream than we choose tube squeeze. beside of the bacteria, with tube pump we can minimalism the accident when we want to use, we can pump in small size. I know if I’m a messy girl and sometimes I squeeze to much and throw away, but with this applicator it more help me a lot -.-

shade test : 4/5
for the shade it’s ok on my skin tone, Idk for people which have tan or olive skin tone, maybe it will be look more white and bright. I didn’t recommendation this bb cream for which have tan skin tone. I know if this bb cream made for Korean people who have pale or fair skin tone, and I think that’s why this shade didn’t really can be match with Indonesian people. and the less point from this bb cream, they only come in one shade.
texture : 4/5
the texture same with other bb cream, isn’t to liquid or creamy, it’s so-so. the texture isn’t thick like other bb cream which I ever try, this bb cream more light than the other, ok I know if I’m never find bb cream which have light texture more than this bb cream. this bb cream easy to blend on my face, you can use your clean fingers, brush or sponge as applicator.

coverage test : 4/5
I’m using dolly wink eyeliner to make a coverage test. you can see if the coverage in medium. as you may know if the color of dolly wink product it’s true black, and maybe that’s why the bb cream can’t give full coverage. but it works on my red spot and uneven skin tone, this bb cream can give me medium until full coverage. please to not thinking will same with the advertisement.
oil control : 4/5
this bb cream is the best bb cream which I ever try, although they Etude House didn’t make this bb cream for someone who have oily skin and most to moisturizing skin, the oil control of this bb cream it’s quite good. this bb cream can stay on my face and control my sebum for around 7-8 hours everyday. notes, I do my activity in room which full with AC. I just need to use this bb cream and set with loose powder. I think the combination is quite good. maybe you should try this bb cream.

over all : 4/5
the packaging which travel friendly make this bb cream can easy to enter in my make up pocket without need more place. I love the coverage, oil control, and the texture. easy to blend and have light texture. great tube pump as applicator. the less point from this bb cream is they didn’t have sun protection or SPF, so you need use sunblock or moisturizer which have sun protection. all over I love this bb cream more than the other >w<

where to buy? Etude House store, price around 30 USD or 298 IDR
recomended? yes, I am.
re-purchased? yes, of course

travel friendly packaging, light texture, great oil control, medium until full coverage, easy to blend, tube pump applicatior, and moisturizing our skin.

plain tube packaging, just come in one shade and didn’t have sun protection.

ok, this post is first post in this month, hope you enjoy read my blog, and see you on other post. very welcome to critic and comment on my blog. with love, -chici-
