Clio Lipnicure Glass #6 Love Hate (Review)

Hey guys, I'm back with another review featuring "Korean Beauty item", which is Clio Lipnicure Glass in no. 6, shade Love Hate. This product is the newer version of the original Clio Lipnicure which isn't everybody's favorite, and I am here to review the product. 
This product came out in 2014, but I've just found out this product last month when I was having a vacation in Taiwan. I decided to buy this lip cream spontaneously, I saw it in Clio's rack in Cosmed, chose the color, and bought it.

~PACKAGING~
I really love the box design. The box really represents the lip cream's shade. And of course, it's my favorite colour, pink and black. The combination of pink and black is soooo pretty. On top of the box, it's written the shade of the lip cream, both in Korean and English.

*click to enlarge*
It has all ingredients in english and description in chinese, yes because I bought it in Taiwan.

Here's the packaging of the lip cream. The bottle is made by thick plastic, so it won't broke. And the bottle is transparant, so you can see the liquid by seeing only the bottle. Under the bottle, there are some information about the lip cream, both in English and Korean.
What I hate about the packaging is that the cap of the bottle is not really secure. I don't know why whether I got a defect bottle or something, but when I turned the bottle upside down, or even when I carry it in my bag, it spills out. See the pictures below.
See? It spills everywhere, and I remembered when I took out the bottle from the box, the liquid smeared everywhere inside the box. Argh, hate it soooooo much :(
Here's the wand, by the way. It has a very unique shape and it is really unique that makes you put your lip cream easier and faster at the center of your lips (if you want to make full lips), but it's a bit hard to reach the tip of your lips & you will feel a bit difficult to line your lips, because the tip of the wand isn't thin enough. 

~SWATCH~
Here's the swatch on my hand. The color is so pretty, no? It's pink with a hing of mauve. (Left: full color; right: blended)
The color when it's applied at the center of the lips (ombre / gradation lips - korean wannabe, huh?)
The color when it's applied in my lips fully.

~REVIEW~
Packaging: Nice packaging, I love it. But the thing I hate is only the cap of the bottle. It doesn't close well so it smears everywhere if I carry it out. I can't bring it when I go out to retouch my lips.

Applicator: It actually has a unique shape. It makes you easier to put the color on the center of the lips, but, to line your lips, it's a bit hard. The tip of the wand isn't that thin to reach tip of your lips.

Color: I really like the color. It's pink with a little hint of mauve. The color is really wearable for everyone. If you want to go for a sweet look, use it as a tint so it turns into gradation. If you wanna go a lil bold, use it fully. 

Texture: It has a thick texture like lipgloss but has no sticky feelings. The finish texture is velvet if you use it as a lip tint (ombre lips), but if you apply it fully, the texture is velvet, with a glossy & shiny hint. Really love it! It doesn't make your lips cracked and it's pretty much mosturizing.

Coverage: It's so pigmented. You swipe once, and the color will show pretilly. I can say it gives your lips a full coverage without having heavy feelings on your lips. It's so light weight!

Lasting Power: Pretty average, 7-8 hours if you don't eat. If you eat, it will dissapear on the center of your lips. Bu it still gives you a little tint that has absorbed when you apply it. Transferproof? No. Because it's not a matte lipstick. It will transfer anywhere. Don't forget to bloat your lips first to a tissue paper after you use your lip cream.

Scent & Taste: It has a fruity scent, which I like, but it has a horrible taste, which I don't like. It seriously has a chemical taste when you apply it. But after a few minutes, the taste is gone. But I still hate it.

Recommended? Not really. You can get another better lip cream than this to be honest. But if you wanna try, go for it! It has a nice color :)

Score: 7/10
What I hate? The cap of the bottle, the horrible taste.

see you for another post! :)

Sariayu Eyeshadow yang Bagus dan Wearable?? (Review)

Aku mulai-mulai pengen pake eyeshadow itu kira-kira 2 tahun lalu. Pas saat itu, aku getol banget cari-cari eyeshadow palette yang katanya bagus, mulai dari Lorac Pro Palette, Naked Palette yang berseri itu, The Balm, dan lainnya. Dan untuk pemula yang masih mahasiswi seperti aku.... eyeshadow palette 600 ribu itu lumayan mahal. Lalu aku nanya-nanya sama mamiku, dan dia bilang dia suka banget sama eyeshadow-nya Sariayu dan mami aku suruh aku beli itu.


My first thought be like "Gamau ah, eyeshadow Sariayu kan warna-nya ngejreng mih" dan "Eyeshadow buatan Indo mana ada yang bagus sih". Trus 2 pendapat tak berdasar akupun itu dipatahkan pas mami keluarin eyeshadow-nya trus suruh aku coba, sampai akhirnya aku beli sendiri dan aku beli seri lain. Lumayan nyesel sih udah ngeluarin statement itu, karena ternyata di luar ekspektasi! Nah, eyeshadow Sariayu akan aku review di post kali ini!

Eyeshadow Sariayu pertama yang aku beli adalah yang seri Trend Warna 2011 Exotic Indonesia, yang aku beli adalah Shade: Petikan Sitar. Merasa eyeshadow ini lumayan bagus, aku beli yang seri Trend Warna 2009 Cantika Jawa Timur, shade Reog. Memang 2 seri ini seri lama, cuman aku merasa dua eyeshadow ini adalah yang warnanya lumayan bagus dan paling wearable diantara yang lain (setidaknya bagi aku ya. Selera orang beda-beda :p) Sariayu sebenernya juga mengeluarkan seri terbaru yang super nge-hype yaitu Trend Warna 2016 - Krakatau, tapi warna yang aku mau mirip-mirip sama yang Trend Warna 2011, jadi aku urungkan niat untuk membeli. Maklum, kantong mahasiswa.


Sariayu Trend Warna 2009
Cantika Jawa Timur
Shade: Reog
------------------------------------------
~PACKAGING~
Packaging-nya secara keseluruhan aku suka banget, compact banget dan gambar depannya juga bagus. Ada cap halal dari MUI juga. Aku gatau sih ternyata ada eyeshadow yang gak halal? Tapi ini menandakan eyeshadow ini aman banget dipakai sama umat muslim. Hehe

*click untuk memperbesar*
Ini adalah ingredients dan cara pemakaian dari eyeshadow ini. Ada tanggal kadaluarsanya juga. Tapi lama-lama cepat kusam kalau gak dirawat bagian belakangnya.

~ISI~
Ini dia packaging dalemnya. Aku suka karena dia compact, ada kaca-nya yang lumayan besar. Tapi yang aku gak suka adalah applicator-nya. Satu sisi-nya sponge, ya masih bisa dipakai lah. Nah satu sisinya lagi itu bulu-bulu model brush, tapi omg keras banget dan nusuk kemata. Warnanya juga ga keangkat sama sekali. Jadi kurang kepakai deh.

~SWATCH~
*tanpa primer*
Tekstur: teksturnya lumayan enak dan creamy, apalagi kalau pake jari itu enak banget. Tapi kadang kalau ambilnya terlalu banyak, suka ada bubuk-bubuk kecil seperti di warna coklat foto di atas. Tekstur seri ini jauh lebih enak ketimbang yang seri 2011. Kalau ditanya, blendable ga? Iya dong, gampang banget di blend.

Warna: Dari segi warnanya, aku suka banget sama eyeshadow shade Reog ini. Warnanya super cakep dan masih cukup wearable. Eyeshadow ini terdiri dari 3 warna, yaitu Coklat tua (Dark brown), Emas (Gold) dan Ungu kemerahan (Cranberry / Purple). Ternyata eyeshadow Sariayu ada juga warna yang wearable ya! Kirain warnanya selalu gonjreng, hehe. Selain itu, warnanya juga ada sedikit shimmer, jadi gak matte.. which is I like!

Pigmentation: warnanya pigmented banget, sekali swatch langsung keluar warnanya. Tapi kalau mau lebih intens, harus pakai primer dulu ya. Tapi tanpa primer pun udah cakep banget, warnanya keluar. Eyeshadow ini warna-nya lebih keluar kalau pake jari, sedangkan kalau pakai brush itu warnanya gak begitu intens (mirip Colourpop), which is a minus for me.

Lasting Power: warnanya lumayan tahan lama, terlebih kalau pakai primer. Kalau dipakai seharian, warnanya gak hilang, cuman agak faded. Gak ada fallout juga. 

Nilai: 4/5! Kekurangan dari eyeshadow ini adalah, jika menggunakan brush, warnanya gak se-intens kalau pakai jari.

Recommended? YESSS! :)

Sariayu Trend Warna 2011

Shade: Petikan Sitar
------------------------------------------
~PACKAGING~
Daripada seri yang 2009, entah mengapa aku lebih suka packaging yang ini. Warnanya kelihatan dari luar (tanpa harus buka-buka penutupnya) sehingga jadi lebih efisien aja gitu.
*click untuk memperbesar*

~ISI~
Seperti yang seri Jawa Timur, aku juga suka sama seri yang ini. Packagingnya compact, dan ternyata ada kaca kecilnya di pinggir. Aku pikir bakal gak ada kaca-nya kan. Ternyata ada! Kuddos buat packagingnya. Tapi lagi-lagi, applicator bagian bulu-bulunya itu gak ada gunanya. Lebih baik dua-duanya sponge.


Tekstur: Teksturnya tidak seenak seri 2009, tapi masih lumayan enak untuk dipalikasikan, terutama kalau pakai jari. Agak sedikit powdery sih menurutku. Kalau ditanya, blendable ga? Lumayan, tapi tidak se-blendable yang seri 2009.

Warna: Aku suka banget sama warna di palette ini, warna-nya bener-bener wearable, terutama buat pemula. Di palette ini ada 3 warna, yaitu coklat tua (Dark brown), Sand/Nude, sama warna Orange / Chopper. Warna orange nya cakep banget!

Pigmentation: Ada beberapa warna yang pigmented, ada yang tidak. Yang warna orange / chopper adalah yang paling pigmented diantara yang lainnya, tapi yang warna nude-nya kurang pigmented. Dan yang warna coklatnya super powdery dan gak pigmented. Mungkin harus di-swatch beberapa kali baru keluar warnanya. Itu juga menjadi salah satu minus-nya, sih.

Lasting Power: warnanya lumayan tahan lama, terlebih kalau pakai primer. Kalau dipakai seharian, warna yang nude itu hilang, sedangkan yang lainnya agak faded. Gak ada fallout juga. 

Nilai: 3.5/5! Kekurangan dari eyeshadow ini adalah, jika menggunakan brush, warnanya gak se-intens kalau pakai jari. Selain itu, warna yang nude kurang pigmented dan warna dark brown-nya powdery, jadi harus diusap beberapa kali. Dan teksturnya powdery, jadi tidak se-pigmented yang seri 2009.

Recommended? Iya, tapi aku lebih recommend seri 2009 kalau kamu emang cari yang bener-bener pigmented. Tapi buat pemula, warna di palette ini lebih natural :)

Taiwan Beauty Haul.......and random things 2016

Hi guys! Guess what, I feel really bored in this holiday, so hey blogger (and readers), here we catch up again dude! I just got back from Taiwan a week ago, and to be really honest, Taiwan is just okay for me. If I would score it, maybe it's 6 out of 10? There are some reasons why I was just okay with it,
1. I join a group tour, so it was so in rush (woke up at 6 a.m, took a breakfast at 7 a.m, went out at 8 a.m, go back to hotel at 9 until 10 p.m) and the schedule was really tight, so I didn't really enjoy the scenery and the food and the shopping time to the fullest.
2. I am not a food hunter, so when we went out for night market, I wasn't that super duper excited. Maybe if you are a food blogger, this place is for you. But if you are not, and if you are a shopper like me, I suggest you to go to Japan or Korea instead.
3. There was freaking Typhoon called Nefartak, so we couldn't go to a city called Hualien and all schedule there was cancelled. 

Nonetheless, although there were some reasons that make me feel uncomfortable, I still enjoy the tour. I love the funny and talkative tour leader, the clumsy and handsome tourguide, and I love all beauty convenient store there!! Watsons, Sasa, Cosmed.. oh my God they are heaven. I just wish those Japanese-Taiwanese makeup is available in Indonesia.... with a reasonable price.

For clothing stores, the only shops I love was in Fongjia Market in Taipei (if I'm not mistaken) because all clothes are really great and up-to-date, with a very cheap price! All clothes were below $20, I don't know, maybe because it was on sale? I don't really know tho. The other store I love is called 50%, it is located inside Dream Mall in Kaohsiung, and it's Chinese version of Forever 21. Great clothes with reasonable price. And don't be fooled, it's not all items there are 50% off, it is just the name of the store!

A tip for you when you go to Taiwan.. know basic Chinese. Because people in Taiwan can't speak English, even basic English, If you can't really speak Chinese, just download an application called 'Pleco', it really helps you. And one more. Taiwan is part of China, but in Taiwan, you can't really bargain. They will give you free stuffs, but they don't let you bargain.

Oh My Gosh I ramble too much! Here are my haul, it's beauty stuffs and random things. I don't post clothing items and snacks here because.... I don't want to. Hehe.

If you go to Taiwan, you must really buy Face Masks because the price is so damn cheap there. 1 box for 200-250NT ($10) for 8 pieces, how cheap is that?? In Indonesia, 1 sheet mask can cost you like $2 - $3, it's really a bargain if you buy  Masks in Taiwan! You can buy Masks in Cosmed, Sasa, or Watsons.

This is Mom's Japanese mask from Kose. This is not as cheap as others tho, but mom was impressed with all Japanese writings on the box -___- So she bought it!

My Beauty Diary! The most famous mask from Taiwan. I bought 3 boxes, one box is original, the others are special edition with cute cat pictures on them. I wanted to buy Sexylook black mask too because people on the internet say it's really good, but mom didn't let me because the color was black (what the.... okay, right or wrong, mom is always right, said every kid) so I didn't buy it. Nevertheless, 3 boxes of masks are enough tho.

Mom wanted to buy the famous eyebrow tattoo thingy from Etude House, so we went to Etude House in Ximending and bought 2 pieces. Fyi, Korean road shops in Taiwan is pretty expensive, but luckily we got promo for these items (if you buy one, it costs 490NT, if you buy two, it costs 500NT -_-) so we bought two items.
I've tried these on my eyebrow, but maybe, because I have a thick eyebrow, it didn't really show up. But on my mom's eyebrow, it shows up and lasts about 2-3 days.

Before I went to Taiwan, I intended to buy a waterproof & smudgeproof eyeliner, because my Etude House eyeliner isn't smudgeproof. So I tried this Kiss Me Heroine Eyeliner and it is both waterproof and smudgeproof! It's also available in Indonesia but the price is no joke. In Taiwan it was only 300NT which is $10, whether in Indonesia it was like $20 if I'm not wrong.

I bought two eyeshadows from Japanese brand, one is called 'Integrate' and the other is the famous Kate brand. I've tried these eyeshadows, they're not that pigmented unless you put eye primer first, but I'm impressed with the glitters. I love Japanese eyeshadows because they are sooo glittery ;") I'll make a review on Japanese eyeshadows, stay tuned! :)

I decided to buy this Clio Lipnicure glass in shade Love Hate. It was unplanned tho, I just see Clio rack and I chose which color of the lipstick that is wearable. So I ended up buying this. 

And here  comes the random stuffs!!
My mom offered my brother and I to buy this cute micro blocks in Shihlin Market, so I bought this one and it is seriously addicting! I want to buy more.

Bought a gudetama doll in Ximending! I always buy two things whenever I go travelling, One is doll, Two is magazine. So I also manage to buy:
Taiwanese Vivi Magazine! 

I got this sunglasses from 50% store I told you before.. for free! Because we spent more than 2000NT there. So yeah. Cool sunnies thoo!

Last but not least, I bought the Taiwanese keychain which has my birthday and I got a free tourist card worth 888NT so I bought some makeup and snacks and stuffs with it. It can be used on some convenient stores like Watsons, 7Eleven,  Family Mart, Cosmed, and Airport foodcourt.

So it's the end of my post! Overall I enjoy my trip to Taiwan although it was not as enjoyable as my previous trip, but I'm happy with all makeup I bought there omg! Hahahahaha, See you in the other post :) luvyaa

P.S : I won't probably share my trip photos because I am too lazy to edit it, plus, I haven't even continued my previous Japan trip photos :') So yeah we'll see. I am not a pro blogger so I just post anything I want and feel like to post. Bye!
