Daiso Detergent for Puff and Sponge, a Review

Okaaay .. Here it is .. The famous brush cleaner : Daiso Detergent for Puff and Sponge (DDPS) !!

For me, beside of the effectiveness to clean my foundation brush (although the name is for puff and sponge, it can be use for brush too!), i adore it for the cheapie price. I bought it for RM 5 or idr 15,500 (assume 1 RM = 3,100 idr) and it contains of 80ml or approx. 2.8 oz.

DDPS come in handy bottle size. The instruction, description and ingredients written in English and Japanese.

now let me show you how DDPS do the job ..

Today's victim is Sigma F60 (foundation) from Mrs Bunny kit.
As you can see, it's used and covered with foundation's stain.

1. pour 2-3 drops of DDPS into a plastic bowl.
2-4. tap your brush into pure DDPS' solution, til all the part covered.
5. add some amount of water, make sure the solution won't reach brush' metal part (where the glue might stay), soak for 10-20 seconds then swirl your brush til all the stain removed. Sometimes you can add some help by your own finger, just make sure your finger(s) is clean.
6. brush seems cleaned already, and solution turn beige.

My F 60 is Clean!!!
*plok plok plok*

DDPS makes it sooo simple to do! With etude brush cleaner, i only have 2 choices : fight with stain or use 6-7 drops directly to my brush to make it clean. And Etude's is not cheap at all (oh but it work nice for powder brush, and natural-hair brush).

Now while i'm waiting it to dry, i put F60 in that position. So no water would reach the metal part. It will dry in safe way ..

PROs :
effective & efficient
doesn't drying my brush
doesn't causing break out

CONs :
hard to find in Indonesia *sigh*
not recommended for natural-hair brush

the next time i find it, i'd stock some bottle for my future use! i promise!!

ps. now i'm selling some beauty stuff in my new blog : svs-beaute.blogspot.com, kindly visit and contact me if you're in indonesian region and want to buy something, hehehehe ..

A Fragrance Review : Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy

It's been a while since i'm writing about my fragrance-miniature collection, my collection is growing really well (i have about 20 of them now), but i haven't finish reviewing the first batch since then..

I've reviewed Sarah Jessica Parker's Covet (here) and Lancome Tresor in Love (here) from the collection..
Now is time for Juicy Couture's Viva La Juicy 
(new Hello Kitty emoticon, so cute eh? :D)

here's how it looks like, so different with full size bottle!
actually, full size bottle look like this :
source : fragrantica.com

The perfume Viva la Juicy was presented as a gourmet floral fragrance, which opens with notes of wild berries and juicy mandarin. The heart encompasses a floral blend of honeysuckle, gardenia and jasmine, while the base notes await us with a gourmet rhapsody of amber, caramel, vanilla, sandalwood and pralines.

I've hide some details, because we know there's so many fake items and i want to do something to prevent it ヽ(`◇´)/

main accords of viva la juicy :

  • sweet - sugary sweet, but not very disturbing, thanks to the second main accord.
  • white florals - i do think white florals is so dominant, very close to sweet accord, there's 3 kind of white flowers in middle note : gardenia, jasmine and honeysuckle which can be smell since the very first use.
  • caramel - when the sweetness feels like shaking my stomach, it possibly because of caramel.

I dont get many vanilla nor citrus, they're the latest think on my head when i use Viva La Juicy. Sometimes it makes me feel so young, but sometimes it just elegant and nice. Sillage and staying power are good, on me it stay for 7-12 hours and sillages from arm length to heavy.

If you like sweet fragrance, with white florals coming inside and out, you'd love it. But if you get headache whenever you smell sweetness, please skip it. I found it better to use on clothes (i'm not doing it with most of my fragrance, only 2 kind : too good on sillage or last for a very short time)  than on my skin.

have you try this? i know so many girls love it.. i used to love it but now, it gave me too much headache.

Tarte Lip Surgence # Elite, Review & Swatches

As i've said in my post (my make up obssesion post), i bought one of Tarte Holiday Set -which is Tarte 5-Piece LipSurgence™ Collector's Set, share it with some friends, and take only one or two for my self.

here's how the set looks like :
there's 5 shades inside :
escape, enchanted, charmed, sweet and elite, all in full size product.

while charmed, exposed and enchanted are available in single product (and they're not limited edition product), escape and elite are only avail in this set (i'm not sure for now, but when i bought this, they're only there).
FYI, i pick Elite for my self, and share the rest of them. Later, i also bought Exposed from another friend, so there will be another review of Exposed, hehe ..

there's how it looks like .. very similar to revlon kissable balm stain ..

Tarte Lip Surgence come in pencil form, made of plastic, with golden cap and base twist to push up the product inside.

ingredients information provided in back side of the box (which i forgot to pictured) so there's only few information in product itself.

how the insider looks like.. i'm glad i dont have to sharpen it :p 

one swipe on my hand .. see how pigmented is it?
the watermelon color shown up very well on my hand, i hope it would be pretty on my lips too!

i always prefer glossy lip product over matte, and you know how much i adore benefit ultra plush lip gloss (which almost have no color) even if this thing is glossy,  it's a little bit out from my cup of tea .. very pigmented, and sadly, i don't like the color on my lips, feels very bright and somehow emphasize my lips problem. See my bare lips? Seems like i have some dots and the lip surgence makes them screaming :(
*i'm so happy those dots are gone already*

tarte lip surgence has a nice mint sensation, althought i can't really detect the minty scent, it's hydrating and feels like a very pigmented tinted lip balm in my opinion.

in this case, i like the textures, even it makes my lips feel dry after several hours (it's hydrating yes, but the mint sensation hurt me) but not the shade. With Exposed, i'm quite like the shades but it doesn't has the same texture .. Will review about it later, see you! ^^

For the love of Dusty Rose..

Last january, i was so lazy doing make up.. And when i did, i always go for the same dusty rose look, simply because it's neutral and so simple to do :)

there are my favorites :

only 3 items!

they're :
tarte amazonian clay blush in exposed
caring color eye shadow pink wave (shade dusty rose)
benefit ultra plush lip gloss in dallas

The Swatches ..

outdoor lightning - no sun

indoor lightning

outdoor lightning - there's evening sunshine

i took several picture using different camera mode, whether Exposed and Pink Wave - Dusty Rose looks natural in most picture, Dallas somehow look very warm orange but believe me, when it used on lips, it turn so natural, just fresher and better version of your lips 

That's my favorites, what's yours? :)
