And because pink is the main colour of ETUDE,
when those packages came out,

* Sample Moistful Collagen Cream
* Sample Nymph Aura Volumer #3



So many, don't you think? 
Do you already feel my excitement ? O(≧▽≦)o♪ xixixi
actually ETUDE HOUSE Global didn't tell me that i will get the masks and samples too.
so it's surprising when i opened the package and saw many of them
They're like sweet dessert - since we talking about their Sweet Recipe line-
that really sweet <3 <3



Because there're many photos, i separate them
 so that i can show you detail on each product
and it will also make every post easier to load 
eventhough you open my page through your handphone  ^__^ v

On this post,
i gonna show you  special review about  
Sweet Recipe products
 
Sweet Recipe line basically line of beauty products
that make us remember about sweet cooking,
like jelly and creamy filling
That's why you can see from the packaging it full of very cute cake and jelly candies design : D



My review today include 2 princess from that ETUDE newest line,
The Sweet Recipe Dear My Jelly Lips-Talk and
 The Sweet Recipe Baby Choux Base 
actually i already make the draft of this post since sometime ago,
but many things come up and now finally i can finish this post,
so enjoy ladies! : D xoxo




Let's move to the first princess  (´▿`ʃƪ)

 The Sweet Recipe Dear My Jelly Lips-talk





The  packaging comes in carton box that has super cute design all over it
You can see the colourful jelly candies that looks so yummy,
and with the lacey white around them
that gives the princess feeling <3


This the Recipe for Jelly Lips,
how to use the lips talk to get the sweet look
PS : i put this lips-talk not only to my lips,
but also cheek and eyes 
when i want a simple orange theme makeup <3






Those side that written in hangul,
 mianhamnida i cannot read it >__<  haha


  Mine comes in shade JOR201
It's an orange colour lips-talk ^.^


At the bottom of the packaging,
you can find the manufacture date of your lips-talk




 The packaging for the lips-talk comes in white thick plastic,
with orange beads detail on it
It somehow really simple compare to the design of carton packaging outside,
but this make the lips-talk look profesional,
but still sweet and cute as usual from EH



On the lips-talk,
there's this sweet symbol of EH
i found this symbol on my other lipstick from EH too,
heart with crown symbol <3
Maybe in this point, you will think that this colour really bold orange colour
i also thought like that when first opened it,
but no this is really beautiful soft colour,
trust me,
let me see you the swatch  ^ ^




The colous is really soft orange colour
that makes me remind of clear orange jelly,
colour can be re-swatch to make it more bold if you like it that way
i swatched it 1 - 2 - 3 times for you
i usually only swatch 2 times,
that already show beautiful orange colour : D
But because it really soft,
after we eat, need to touch up


it has sweet scent of orange too that i love so much since i'm aroma lover
but if you don't like any aroma,
no need to worry because the scent just stay a while and fade away later
i personally would really love if the scent last forever lol



The moisture function is really good,
you will find your lips become moisturize while applying it
no need for additional lipbalm,
less step on our makeup ! \(´▽`)/



What i love:
* Cute!
>> from the packaging, the lipstick, colour, everything just so cute ! O(≧▽≦)o♪
* Pastel orange colour
* Sweet orange scent
* Moisturize well
* Travel size
* can be applied as blush and eyeshadow too


What i don't love:
*need to often touch up



Recommend to buy?
 * Yes! this totally worthed product to add in your collection,
especially if you love pastel colour <3




The Sweet Recipe Baby Choux Base


The packaging also come in really cute packaging
This Baby Choux comes like sweet cream filling for cake
that always make me want to eat some cake lol
omoo, this line totally got me princess with all these cute design and theme,
the scent, everything!
i also get this kyaa kyaa feeling with the Princess Etoinette series (because it's super cute too like princess's equipment)
but for me that kind of feeling for this line farrrrrr more bigger
it's more cuter in my eyes and totally make me fall !  >__<   <3


 This one wrote in hangul, anyone know the meaning? : D
just some feedback for EH,
it will be more better if there's english translation for all sides (some sides already has english translation)
so we can understand all of the information
because the EH fans also spread all over the world  xoxo


 Contain SPF 25 PA++
so just use this alone can protect your skin from sunburn
But i personally always use this combine with my bb cream,
usually with Precious Mineral BB Cream #W13 that is my favourit one,
because this baby choux suppose to be a primer, that has light coverage
so layer it with bb cream  will give perfect finish



 Recipe for Baby Choux Skin,
which is how to use it : D
Contain 25 g of baby choux in each pack, that believe me it really long way to finish eventhough i use it almost everyday
they really make us feel like we're cooking, don't you think? hihi


Ingredients information says water first,
which mean water is the major component here on this baby choux
so it means its water base
I realize it while making this post too,
that's why i always feel it's refreshing when apllied it i guess


Sometime when the weather is very hot,
if i applied only bb cream it will fade from my face after sometime because of the sweat,
but if i applied baby choux first, it will be more long lasting,
and more over my face feel more cooler than when i applied only bbcream
I also feel weird at the first time,
because more layers suppose to be hotter in face because we use thicker make up right?
but it's different,
and now i know that this major component is water, maybe because of that : D
Water base also usually more friendly for sensitive skin,
that's why it perfect match with my skin



 The real packaging  comes in thick transparant glass jar,
we need to twist the cap to open it
The cap colour containing pearl,
so it somehow remind me of dewy skin finish


We can see the pink cream choux from outside,
the size actually is travel friendly,
but since the packaging quite heavy and might broken since it made from glass,
i usually take some and bring it on little plastic jar for cream product
you can easily find that kind of plastic jar on stores for very cheap price


I choose shade 2 #Berry Choux which is for covering panda eyes and dull skin
i have trouble with that because of my sleeping time is not really well
especially if i have tons of homework
using bb cream only sometime doesn't cover my dull skin well,
but if i combine bb cream + bbchoux,
it just perfect for dewy skin finish !  : D


As for covering panda eyes ability,
it does its function,but just light covering
will works when i have just light panda eyes
i tried my friend's EH Surprise Essence Concealer sometime ago (after use choux + bb cream)
 and those combination really works for really perfect flawless dewy skin
complete covering when i have even heavy panda eyes!
So i'm ordering that now
will make review about that later pretty girls


The Baby Choux has creamy texture but it does'nt feel heavy on skin at all
instead it gives me that cooling effect that i said before
Some other  bloggers that live in different countries said that it's too viscous
that difficult to spread, that's kinda scared me when i want to order it back then,
but actually when it comes, its consistency is just perfect ! O.O
not too thick, very easy to spread
i usually apply it with my finger
You can see from the picture that it's still half to finish
eventhough me and my mom use it everyday
it really last long  <3



It has sweet berry aroma on it,
but as usual will fade away after some time T_T



What i love :
* Perfect match for my combination skin (that a little sensitive type too)
* Let bbcream stay longer
* Last long time
* Sweet berry scent >> but please last longer on my face lol
* perfect viscosity, not feel heavy on skin



What i don't love :
*heavy and fragile glass jar packaging >>  prefer something that's easy and lighter to bring




Recommend to buy ?
* Yes! it's nice and affordable primer,
try this if you looking for primer to brighten up your dull skin



Ow yeah if you're wondering about how this Baby Choux turn on when applied on my face,
see my next post, because i will compare it side by side
Precious Mineral BB Cream Bright Fit only, 
Baby Choux + Bright Fit,
 Precious Mineral BB Cotton Fit,
Baby Choux + Cotton Fit
so you can see the comparison ,
and decide which one you would like to have : D




Last i wanna show you review about the sweet dessert,
that i already tried 

Aloe Moistful Mask Sheet





It's one time used mask sheet that rich with aloevera
with very light smell of aloevera 
i applied it on my face about 30 minutes,
and use the left over essence inside to massage my neck area


It does moisturize my skin well,
and give soothing effect, kinda like cooling sensation
based on my experience, aloevera can heal sunburn,
so i believe it's more recommended for people that got sunburn
 to sooth their itchies and redness on their skin
or simply for sensitive skin  people to hydrate our skin without irritate it


I love this mask
but personally i more love the Etude House I Need You Mask in Red Ginseng that more suitable for my stress type skin, you know that i have trouble with my dull skin because of work until late evening and etc
red ginseng make me feel like releasing my stress and heal my skin well <3




What i love:
* Soothing effect
* Calming and moisturizing my skin well


What i don't love :
* just 1 time usage since it sheet mask lol



Recommended to buy? :
* Do you have sensitive skin or get sunburn right now?
if yes, try this <3




So that's all for my post today,
see you on my next post about Precious Mineral BB Cream Cotton Fit! <3
Annyeonghaseyo 안녕하세요

Wet n Wild REVIEW PART 2 ! : D

Hi all beautiful ladies around the world
Welcome to 
"The Beauty & Pocket" !
If this is your first time visitting my blog,
let me have small introduction here : D
 Today, i'm gonna share special review for special beauty package
that i got from Wet n Wild Cosmetics Indonesia
( go click the facebook link,
 they always share many beauty tips and tutorial
plus quiz for W n W lovers : D )




First, i wanna say sorry i don't post for a while 
cause i'm busy with final exam
But now i'm back,
bringing you my newest review 
about another Wet n Wild product! yay! : D
I believe that many of you will love this review,
since there're many fans of Wet n Wild cosmetic like me
*how could we not falling in love with such great and affordable product ? >o<




Don't want to make it more longer, 
here is my (continuation) review about

 Megaslicks Lipgloss  #Bronze Berry 

(Rp. 69.000)

 

My package from Wet n Wild Cosmetics Indonesia contains those 2 products,
if you curious about the eyeshadow,
read my previous post about it
*i recommend you to read that since that eyeshadow simply  georgeous!
i also upload my video review about these 2 princess there  <3


 




The packaging comes in thick transparant plastic tube,
with silver cap
simply just twist the cap to open it.
It comes in travel size so really convenience to bring it ladies 
see my video review on previous post to see the exact size  ;D



Mine comes in shade Bronze Berry,
as you can see it's a very beautiful soft pink colour with glitters
it will give us shimmer pink lip,
that i personally love so much
 since i'm a huge fan (maniac) of pink  * you can see that from my blog them right? haha
this shade simply got me totally! O(≧▽≦)o♪





The brush shape is usual lipbrush
that attached together with silver cap



Swatches time! ^ o ^


The pink colour looks a little bit bold on my hand,
but when it's apply on lips,
it will just blend and gives me very natural glossy pink colour <3


 My bare lips





 Applied the MegaSlick Li Gloss in Bronze Berry

I applied 1 layer only for the colour to come out,
so it really pigmented for a lipgloss
As you can see,
the colour just blend naturally on my lips and gives me natural finish look



One thing i love from this lipgloss,
it don't make my lips dry beautiful girls!​ yay! (´▿`ʃƪ)
Indonesia has hot weather that usually make my lips dry
when i use lipgloss without any lipbalm first
This Megaslick don't do the same rule with other lipgloss,
i never use any lipbalm first before apply it,
but my lips will still moisturize : D
But that doesn't mean if my lips already dry and has undesirable look
 (like when i got sorethroat)
then this lipgloss will make my lips very moist
not like that,
but when my lips in usual condition,
applying this lipgloss will not make it dry 




 That's why i love this lipgloss (other than beautiful pink colour reason)
xixixi
 I love simple thing, 
so less step on makeup ( no need to apply lipbalm)
definitely great for me XD




What i love :
* Beautiful pink colour
* Convenience size  >> so i can bring it up in my cosmetic pouch 
* Moisturize enough >> no need for additional lipbalm



What i don't like :
* The smell is not so good,
since i'm huge fan of aroma,
i more prefer if it has nice scent like strawberry, or fruity maybe  : D



* Recommended?:
Yes!
Just 69.000 rupiah ( about $7) and you get this great product 
who don't want to have it, add this to your collection dear 
xixi ​(´▿`ʃƪ)




So that's all for tonight post,
will come back soon with another beauty reviews
full of beauty products directly send to me from Korea <3

Wet n Wild PACKAGE REVIEW PART 1 ! : D

Hi all beautiful ladies around the world
Welcome to 
"The Beauty & Pocket" !
If this is your first time visitting my blog,
let me have small introduction here : D

 Today, i'm gonna share special review for special beauty package
that i got from Wet n Wild Cosmetics Indonesia
( go click the facebook link,
 they always share many beauty tips and tutorial
plus quiz for W n W lovers : D )




In case you don't know,
Wet n Wild is no. 1 brand in USA,
it's  really popular and i always see many youtube gurus and bloggers
 from another countries talk about it everytime 
That's why when they officially come to Indonesia,
i am super happy, and excited to try their products !  finnally !  O(≧▽≦)o♪
 Lucky me,
i had been picked as 1 of lucky winners that won their beauty package
So here i am today,
to review the package that they sent me for you
My long wait for Wet n Wild to come to Indonesia is right choice,
since their products are super geourgeous and affordable <3 <3





PHOTOSHOOTS!


 Wet n Wild contact number 
(if you cannot go online to order ) : 0828 1701 8886


 The package came in black paper with "wet n wild" icon,
complete with "FRAGILE" alert
It's very nice wrapped so it's really safe and make cure integrity of the products inside


Inside, there's still this choco box to protect the products
(It's not the box from the products that i got,
think Wet n Wild just find any box fit with the products to make sure they can arrive safely at my house  : D )
So you can see they tried their best to protects the beauty products they sent me
so if you don't live in Jakarta like me,
means cannot come to buy at the store
(located at SOGO Emporium Pluit, Jakarta)
don't hesitate to buy online through their website
www.wetnwild.co.id
They will make sure to send your package as safe as mine 



Here are the products that i got ,

Color Icon Eyeshadow Trio  #Walking on Eggshells

(Rp 89,000 )

and

 Megaslicks Lipgloss  #Bronze Berry 

(Rp. 69.000)







Color Icon Eyeshadow Trio  #380B.Walking on Eggshells 

(Rp 89,000 )


The packaging comes in black -- transparant plastic box,
which i think it's look so cool and give professional feeling
There is Safety Sealed
to ensure our products integrity and still brand new



Mine comes in "Walking on Eggshells" palette
it contain 3 beautiful shimmer colours :
Light beige >> for BROWBONE
 Medium Coffee >> for CREASE
 Light Pink >> for EYELID

that browbone, crease, and eyelid writing
 also carved in another eyeshadow palettes
so we can easily know where to place that colours
there is instruction picture on the back of the packaging too,
that we can easily follow
i followed that to  make the final look for this review,
watch the video on the end of this post to see that 
I also show you how convenience the size of this palette 
even for travelling : D







There are also  2 mini brushes :
EYESHADOW BRUSH and ANGLE BRUSH
 with " wet n wild " writing carved on it
the brushes colour actually black
 ( see the previous photo that i took when it's still brand new)
already turn brown because i use it many times already
use just this palette alone will give us sweet and cute looks LOVE! O(≧▽≦)o♪






SWATCHES

 

 BEIGE -  COFFEE  -  PINK


Since they're very soft colours - especially the beige and pink,
i also swatched in on white paper for you : D

 

 As you can see, all are shimmer colour
I use the beige colour to line my lower waterline too sometime,
beige can work same with white,
to make our eyes looks bigger
But beige can give more natural looking than white
that's why i prefer use it now
 I wanna try to combine the pink with my red eyeshadow,
believe it will looks geourgeous 
As the medium coffee colour it will also looks great for smookey eyes
if combine with darker brown colour
will upload the photos later when i already try : D




Love this palettes since it gives georgeous natural looks,
plus the colours can also be combined with another eyeshadows colour,
so you can say it's a all in 1 palette
I use it about 3-4 times already,  apllied 2 layers usually
and always use from morning till late evening
( if you're my regular readers,
 you must know how busy i am with my food technology student tasks)
but i happily tell you that everytime i use it,
it never failed to always still stay on their place
So, it has LONG LASTING formula





 What i love :
* Black packaging + 2 mini brushes
* Great colours  and ALL in 1
>> can be combination of that 3 only,
or combine with another eyeshadow colours
* Long lasting
* Convenience travel size (see the video)



What i don't love :
* cannot find any,
this simply affordable and great




OVERALL RATINGS :
Since cannot find any minus thing about this,
i'll give this

10 / 10

Great job Wet  n Wild *tumbs up



Recommended to buy?
*Absolutely! especially if you love natural looks
grab one now





Time for Video Review ! : D









you wanna ? visit their website now ladies
and grab your own products  : D



So, that's all for today review ladies
Curious to know bout the second cute thing i got?
