PAPERSELF "Scorpion:Fatal Attraction" eyelashes review

Last December I bought myself a PAPERSELF product. I thought that those paperlashes are cute so I want to give it a try.


Left : Clown; Right : Scorpion.

The Scorpion lashes are mine, the clown ones are my sister's.

This product is surprisingly easy to use and super comfortable. I cut my lashes into four because the length was too long for my eyes.

I use the one with the tail for the upper lashes and the one with the scorpion head as lower lashes.


Those lashes really look like a scorpio to me and with these lashes you'll definitely draw attention to your eyes so use it in occasions like a party or a big event like that, but you can use it in everyday life if you're confident emough to pull it off.

I really like the design and the price was reasonable. The lashes were flexible so it's easy to stick it to your eye. 





Pros:
- Flexible 
- Comfortable
- Re-usable 
- easy to apply
- Cute designs
- High-quality
- Can be used for another purpose (ex: nail art)

Cons:
- Hard to get (you have to buy it online if you live in Indonesia) 
- expensive
 (Around 12.50 euros or Rp. 200k,-)

Make Over -Ultra Cover Liquid Matt Foundation-no.2 Review

Tadaa!!! here's the pending review about make over foundation...sorry if I make you waiting and wondering... :( been super busy lately..
Left : In a bright lightning, Right : in a dark lightning
Surprisingly, this foundation turns out to be good on my skinface.. it's so comfortable on my dry skin, 'cause the texture is so oily and I strongly not recommend it for someone who has an oily skin. 
This foundation blends perfectly on my skin.. It gives me a natural look and covers dark circles below my eyes..although not completely. 

Pros :
-Perfect on dry skinface
-Not too pricey :) 
-Can be use daily..it won't clog your pores, unless you clean it perfunctory
-Elegant and simple packaging, at first I thought that this is an international brand but surprisingly it's not..it's a LOCAL one :D
Cons :
- Not suitable for oily skin and even normal skin, it can makes your face covered with oil after several hours usage!!!
-Medium coverage 
-Not too waterproof :( 
-No SPF!!! 

Tell me if you've ever try this foundation before, comment below!!!

Upgrade your old table ψ(`∇´)ψ

Hi :)

So after tidying my messy room, my sister and I decided to give our table a little makeover :D

We changed the cover from Shuffle! to D.N.Angel :> our favorite anime back then.

It was an easy task but the result is pretty good . . Haha forgive me for being a hardcore otaku :'< 

I am a big fan of Japanese manga and anime and I'd like to go back to the cosplaying world once I can make my own costume.

Anyway here's the picture of my lovely table  (the mysterious black stripes near my table is just some left over black tapes)
Okay here's some step by step to re-vamp your old table:
1. You need a poster in the same size as your table's  surface.
2. Stick that poster on the table's surface using tapes.
3. Cut a transparent plastic, the same length and width as your poster.
4. Cover the poster with the plastic.
5. Use wide tape to secure the plastic.
*You need to cover the poster with plastic to make it easy to be cleaned and also you might need some help while covering the poster with plastic since the plastic tends to slip or shift.
  
Hehe pretty good right? hope this help

Easter Clean Out

Hello . .

So I've been cleaning my room for these past 2 days together with my little sister. 

My room was so messy, lots of comic books and magazines and school textbook spread all over on my study desk, under it, on the big table in the middle of the room, and on my bedside table. It was a total mess.

We managed to sort out things. We put bags in their right place, organized the comics and books and took care of other miscellaneous  things like action figures, cards, etc,

It was really tiring. We discarded 3 big boxes of all of our stuffs :>

Anyway Happy Easter 🐇🐰🎉

Avène Oil Control Kit Review

Recommended by Dermatologists, Skin Specialists and Pharmacists for Oily, Acne Sensitive


I've been using this kit for months and it actulaly works wander on my skin :)

Step 1 : Cleanse 
Using the pH balanced, soap-free formulation cleanance gel to deep cleanse the skin, unclog pores and eliminate surgace impurities. After cleaning your face, move on to the next step.

Step 2 : Mist
Spray the Avène Thermal Spring Water to soothe and calm skin irritation. You should spray a fine mist before treatmen .

Step 3 : Treat
Apply the Cleanance K Cream-gel all over your face after spraying. The high concentration of Avène Thermal Spring water provides soothing and anti-irritating  relief to blemish prone skin so you do have to spray before applying the Cleanace K cream-gel.

*The Avène Thermal Spring Water does have an expiry date 

After repeating those simple steps for weeks I began to see the results. My skin is less oily now and I rarely have acne outbreaks during monthly periods :) and it's easy to reduce acnes. It took me about a week maximum to eliminate acnes thanks to the cleanance k cream gel and thermal water combo.


These are what I have left in my place :( the cleansing gel had worn out since I used it together with my sister.

Pros :
- Clean your skin deeply and thoroughly
- Make your skin moist, not oily
- Help eliminate acnes
- refuce facial redness and itching
- the thermal water can be used to

Cons :
- Expensive
- Hard to get

Michiru Simple Smokey Eyes Style

Nah!! today I'm gonna show you some photos of myself wearing simple smokey eyes style.. I actually am never been a fan of smokey eyes but.. this one is a really..really..simple one and.. 
not too smokey..so here's the result.. I'll give you some of my tips and recommendation <3 have fun!!!
Me without any make up..

1. Suppose you can use this style in daily life.. as it's not too bold also I don't use any eye shadow 
2. To make a sharp edge in the corner of the eye you need a pencil liner with a not too sharp nor too dull tip, so make sure your pencil liner is in the right shape :)
3. Make it bold with liquid eyeliner.. If you're an amateur or a beginner at this liquid eyeliner stuffs,  I strongly recommend you to be extra careful when you apply it on your eyes.. Be patient to wait for the liner to dry..Unless, you'll get your liner run over, at worst it can run into your eyes and make your sight go black and perhaps it can get you irritation..
***first aid if those terrible shits happen : don't be panic..get your cleansing  eye drops, use it several times until the black liquids all gone and the inside of your eyeball cleans..get cleaning water into cotton, clean the remaining "run over" dirt.. Last, get your eye mask on :) 
4. It's done.. you're welcome to try this style in any occasion... :D

Enjoy...,

Jesus in The Desert

God, often I went too far,
often I want too much,
often I reach too high,
and I would fall so deep.

God, eliminate my hunger of  "more".
Let me taste Your bread, 
Your words, your offerings.
Break me and divide me.

God, eliminate my thirst of  "bigger".
Let me taste from Your chalice
Your words, Your generosity.
Pour me.

God, if I have done it
then the devil would be gone.
Let your angels come 
to keep me.

A poem by Berthe van Soest; translated by Fons Bogaartz, OSC; translated again by me. 
Sorry if there are some mistakes in the translations, this is the first time I translate a poem.

PORTO/Foresta : Food Glorious Food

Well, yeah.. we love eating so much.. especially when it comes to delicacies that contain a lot of sweets.. :) so today we're gonna share about a cafe-resto called Porto/ Foresta ( Porto is for the main courses and Foresta is for the sweets,pastry and drinks). It is located at Setiabudhi, Bandung and basically Porto and Foresta are the same, they're both in the same management..
Combination of comfortable environment and beautiful garden..you can also eat inside, there're sofas and AC..but, it's not too hot outside as there're so many trees there :) 
Delicious soup inside the potato, I forgot the name of this menu..It tasted supeerr taasty and it contains mozzarella cheese inside :D and it smells so freaking yummiehh!!! 
Tea lemon cake and Nougat cake... what I like about all of Foresta cake is that..they use the best, ingredient on their cake and the colour of their cakes are not too bright/ colourful..But, the best part is that it's all not too sweet.. for a cake 
Above : Medovnik & Banana berry surprise
Below  : Cupcakes & Tea lemon cake
Portrait of Momiji happy face!! ahaha 
Salmon fried rice + green tea = perfect combination.. and a great starter for a day :) But, I think this Salmon fried rice will be better without grapes and pineapple.. as I don't really like it.. but, overall you can always put them aside, right!!? :D
Above : Herb Calamari :* so delicious and no fishy smells.. 
Below : Honolulu (it's a kind of mix juice) so..fresh & Chicken parmigiana..chicken breast with beef and bolognaise sauce and mozzarella cheese on the top..yummy!! the potatoes are also "real" potatoes not a frozen one!! :)
Omelette cheese with garden salad, mushroom soup, and hangover booster :) All of them are just a perfect combination!!! and I think the salad needs more dressing, though..it tastes just nice, the omelette is soo yummy with melted cheese inside...perfect food to start a day.. Hangover booster is a mixfruit juice, it contains oranges, strawberry, and honey as I can remember... so juicy and fresh!!


Such a total indulgence of the day.. we just finished our exam back then.. when we ate together at this soo not friendly with pocket cafe :D the price range starts from idr 100.000,- to idr 200.000,- 
yeahh.. my pocket money was broke down after that... ahahaha

Monochromatic S.H.I.E.L.D.

Hello . .

Yesterday I went to the local mall to spent some quality time with my family. We arrived at ten and most of the shops aren't opened yet so we went to the game centre to kill some time :)

Yesterday was the first time I try playing maimai, aaand it was so adictive I definitely want to go back and play again. You, vocaloid fans would love playing maimai since there are lots of vocaloid songs registered in the songlist. 

After that we had lunch at Pizza Hut 


Then I went to the cinema in the top floor of the mall and I took a picture at the Captain America Promotional Photo Booth. It was so cute that I just can't leave the cinema without taking a pic of it as a background :) 


That was my ootd. Actually I didn't put much effort in assembling those clothes since the combination was quite simple I guess. But, a bunch of girls seemed to like my style. One of them actually stopped me in the hall just to compliment me \(//∇//)\ I was so surprised since that was the first time a stranger called me (^人^)

Anyway I was wearing a culture tribe t-shirt, forever21 button-up shirts, ZARA short shorts, nine west black sling bag, sox gallery knee-high socks and a pair of black high-top converse.


Hehe and finally on the way home, I did a little experiment with camera filters ( ´ ▽ ` )ノ

Tiring days

Disasters happen when your mood is ruin in the morning or when you don't have any spirit to start a day and it will be such a  burden.. Sometimes I have this kind of feeling too, the feeling of saturated for no reason, the feeling that somehow my head's gonna explode because of the crazy routines.. But, in the end I just do it all, I cannot just avoid a part of my responbilities. There were days when I thought my life was complete shit. It gave me A LOT of tasks and lists of meaningless things to do, I even feel like I don't belong to this kind of lifestyle..and I always want something different, I want changes. But, then as I keep complaining..it just doesn't give me any change or does me any better..and then I realize that this is not going to change unless I live my everyday life differently and to think positively even at the worst, darkest day.. because life is about to reach the brightest light and sometimes it takes to rain first before the rainbow comes up. Until now, I always look up at the bright sky to comfort myself when I feel this kind of terrible feeling.. 

Blue skies that always comfort me..


I want to reach my brightest light in life :) 

This was a photo of me taken when I had my worst days..several nights with less sleeps and you can see dark circles under my eyes..plus my eyes are pretty swolen in here..it was terrible!! haha

Be happy and enjoy every seconds of your time.. it won't ever be the same.. trust me!! :)

Eyelashes Eyelashes come in various lengths, colors and thicknesses, from natural-looking to outrageous. The two most popular styles are doll lashes, consisting of longer lashes at the center of the lash line, and cat-eye lashes, where the end lashes are longer to create a cat-like eye. Eyelashes have different effects on eyes and they can easily transform the way your eyes look.
eyeliner Eyeliner is a cosmetic used to define the eyes. It is applied around the contours of the eye(s) to create a variety of aesthetic effects. The makeup is usually used by women and girls and cosplayers.
eyeshadow Eye shadow is a cosmetic that is applied on the eyelids and under the eyebrows. It is commonly used to make the wearer's eyes stand out or look more attractive.Eye shadow can add depth and dimension to one's eyes, complement the eye color, or simply draw attention to the eyes.
mascaraMascara is a cosmetic commonly used to enhance the eyes. Normally in one of three forms—liquid, cake, or cream—the modern mascara product has various formulas; however, most contain the same basic components of pigments, oils, waxes, and preservatives.
Lipgloss Lip gloss is a product used primarily to give lips a glossy lustre, and sometimes to add a subtle color. The product is available in ranges of opacity from translucent to solid, and can have various frosted, glittered, glossy, and metallic finishes.
liptint Lip Tint or Lip Stain is a product for the lips that tends to fall somewhere between gloss and lipstick. It goes on more lightly than lipstick, but provides more color than gloss. This product frequently contains additional ingredients, like sunscreen, conditioning ingredients, or even a minty scent to make the breath smell fresher.
Lip StickLipstick is a cosmetic product containing pigments, oils, waxes, and emollients that apply colour, texture, and protection to the lips. As with most other types of makeup, lipstick is typically, but not exclusively, worn by women.
Blush OnBlush on or rouge, is a type of makeup often applied to the cheek area of the face with a makeup brush in order to even out skin tone or to add more color. It is commonly found as a powder, but can also come in other forms, such as creams or liquids. Sometimes, blush is also used to make the face look wider or longer.
Powder Face Powder is a cosmetic powder applied to the face to set a foundation after application. It can also be reapplied throughout the day to minimize shininess caused by oily skin. Powder tones the face and gives an even appearance.
FoundationFoundation is a skin coloured cosmetic applied to the face to create an even, uniform colour to the complexion, to cover flaws and, sometimes, to change the natural skintone. Foundation applied to the body is generally referred to as "body painting."
SkincareSkin care products can also fall under the general category of cosmetics. These are products used to improve the appearance and health of skin, formulated for different types of skin and associated characteristics. Skin care products include cleansers, facial masks, toners, moisturizers, sunscreen, tanning oils and lotions, skin lighteners, serums and exfoliants.
Hand and Body LotionLotion is a <low to medium viscosity> topical preparation that has lots of effects on skin depending on the types.
