Meow's Reindeer Collection

Reindeer Collection was out before celebration of Christmas...
Along with Reindeer collection samples, I also ordered Flawless Feline Foundation (2-Frisky Shpynx Muchkin size).I picked wrong color for this chance :(
When I apply, my face looked ashy.


I had Pampered Puss Foundation in 1-Sleek Sphynx, though!                                                      b

No more cramps during period: experience after using Anion Love Moon Pads

Really, I'm amazed!
Today is my first day of my period and  I didn't feel the weak feeling, the mood swing, or the cramps around my belly area, as I always felt on the first day of period.
This is my second period after I used Anion Love Moon sanitary napkin.
I and my sister went out of the house since morning to visit her sister-in-law.
We went to swimming pool near by her house, we did home meeting, we stayed there til evening.
When I drove back to home, I realized that I didn't feel anything I felt as usual. So, this is a good condition to experience.
The first time I used Anion Love Moon pantyliner, I experienced a detox process. I was late to have my period, I discharged a lot of fluid for about a week, and I felt itch for three days down there. My friend said I was undergoing detox process, so what I needed to do was to change the pantyliner every four hours.
I feel clean now, my discharge has stopped.
My period also occur faster, from seven days to five days.

Even I don't have any abnormality (such as myoma, cysts, or cancer), no cramps during period means an improvement. Of course, for ladies with that health condition, Anion brings more benefit and helps their lives.




Anion helps to regularize body system, balancing the hormones. So if you are having irregular menstruation, Anion can improve that.
A friend of mine had myoma, she had Anion treatment for awhile and the myoma got treated. Her obgyn doctor confirmed that she's clean and healthy now.

Cousin's wedding reception, look using Meow's Rain Forrest Collection

I was in Surabaya for three days to attend my cousin's wedding.
The wedding ceremony was on December 6, 2010. We agreed to wear beige color for our outfit.
I picked a broken white dress with yellowish hijab.
Since the outfit color was very soft, I opted bold color for my eyes: Red and golden combo from Meow's Rain Forrest Collection and one color from Simple Pleasure Collection.

My closing Aromaleigh order arrived

Knowing that Kristen allowed International order, I managed to buy some stuffs!
For this order, I used office address because at that time no one at home for sometime. I waited, and waited for the package to come. I checked USPS website to check the delivery status. But the status only stated untill the day of package sent out of USA.
Alas! The South Jakarta Post Office sent me a notification, I needed to pay some duty tax for that package (IDR 98,000, about USD 10)
So odd, I don't understand our custom. A couple of weeks before this, I received two packages from USA of my online orders but they sent to my office and I only paid IDR 7,000 (USD 0.80) each. That's their repackage charge.
Anyway, I had to find time to go to this particular post office in between my working hour :(
The place was far, but at the end, it was worth it.
I received many free items from Aromaleigh! I didn't expect that.

Enjoy the beauties:
Original order

Blush on and finishing veil

Free lip products

Free samples: eye colors, blush on, veil powder

Free full size eye colors

This is how the color look like

Providence and Grace

When I was blog walking and read a post from a beauty blogger who I follow (Gosh I forgot her name, I'll get back to you on this soon!) about this brand, I was intrigued.
I went to the Etsy store, http://www.etsy.com/shop/ProvidenceAndGrace.
Found pretty lip colors and eye shadows.
I read the profile and it has its own website http://www.providenceandgrace.com/. There was sale on the website. I sent message to Jen through Etsy and asked why there was price difference, lower price on her website.
She said that the cost and fees for her website are less than fees for Etsy, so she can afford to offer her products at a better price there. She also has a better selection of items on the website.
So go there now, hehehe


I purchased below items:
Lipstick 4 x $4.49 :
- Divine
- Element
- Flirt
- Cadence
Coconut Lip Scrub $2.62


Lip products

From above to bottom:
Element, Flirt, Divine, Cadence


Blush 2 x $5.99:
- DELIGHT Fail Proof Blush
- Pink Lemonade

Left: Delight, Right: Pink Lemonad

Delight and Pink Lemonade


Green Concealer $2.99
7 Color Stacker $14.96: Apple Cinnamon, Arabia, Enchanted Forest, Indigo, Queen Anne, Victoria, Bolera.
Apple Cinnamon is a warm and inviting color. It is a soft brown with red highlights and sparkle.
Arabia is a beautiful sandy color. This does not have the usual reddish undertones that most mineral makeup browns have
Enchanted Forest is a mesmerizing deep shimmery green
Indigo is a darker bluish purple color
Queen Anne is a beautiful red  color
Victoria is a beautiful deep purple color with hints of pink
Bolera is a deep russety orange color

Shadow in the jar


With no flash
1st row, L to R: Bolera - Apple Cinnamon - Arabia
2nd row, L to R: Queen Anne - Indigo - Enchanted Forrest
3rd row: Victoria

Swatch - with flash


Total: $50.51, free international shipping on order above USD 25. Cool!

I asked Jen about foundation colors that will match my skin tone, she's generous enough to send me several foundations samples (in the N4-N7 range) and veils :)

My Eid Adha look using Hi Fi Cosmetics

I forgot I have this new green dress tailored long time ago. So on Eid Adha, I decided to wear it for the first time. This dress is combined with yellow color and lots of colors decorating the fabric.
Using eye colors I just bought from HiFi Cosmetics, I dare myself to use bright intense color in the 1st anniversary eye collection.
I'm loving 'em!
Also, to apply the eye color, I realized I can't swipe because the color will go dull, but if I pat, the color appears intensed.

Finished look :) with flash

Moisturizing Socks

I've been keeping this item quite long since I received it with my various orders from USA.
I bought Bamboo Overnight Moisturizing Socks at Amazon.Com.




My boyfriend once told me that there are socks special for dry feet and those for diabetics patients.
When I saw these at Amazon, I straight away put it in my shopping cart.
I have cracked heels and very dry feet. I put on my foot lotion every night but I was always afraid the lotion would stain my beed sheet. So these socks come in handy :)


Product Features


  • Just apply your favorite lotion and cover with the socks.
  • Wear overnight or just watching TV. Keeps your lotion working right at the surface to help heal dry, cracked skin.
  • 95% bamboo and 5% Lycra.  
  • Bamboo is naturally hypoallergenic, naturally antibacterial, won't hold odor
  • Soft and Comfortable Feel!

 The shop has gloves too. The fabric is so soft. I wear the socks every night when I sleep.

New products from The All Natural Face: Oil make up remover and Foundation primer

While I was placing an order for my beauty shop customer at The All Natural Face,  I also purchased some new stuffs available for myself :)

Here they are:

1. Natural Oil Make Up Remover
Note: After I re-checked, this item is a free item of October Sale.....
This probably my first oil make up remover.

Why do we use oil to remove and clean our make up?
The counter facial wash will strip all the natural oils out of our face skin. Most of these are made from water SLSs ( think dishsoap) and alcohol. We are brainwashed into thinking that if it squeaks it is clean...not true with your face. If it squeaks it is crying out.
This becomes more important as we age because the skin losing its ability to remain elastic and we start to get wrinkles. By keeping your skin hydrated in oils that mimic the skins natural sebum...you will have healthier... less wrinkly skin. Nothing reverses the aging process. there is no magic pill. All we can do is take care of the vessel we are given to the best of our ability. Oil will remove any makeup...yes including waterproof mascara...



Natural Oil Make Up Remover
What Crystal writes about the product:
How does oil clean you ask? For the same reason soap works:) The oil in the soap naturally attracts the dirt particles. By rinsing your face with a warm washcloth after applying the oil you are removing the dirt:) A little oil left on your face is a good thing:) My Oil Makeup Remover is chock full of skin lovin oils:)
The process is as simple as can be:
1. Apply oil to face to remove makeup and dirt.
2. Have a warm washcloth and gently remove the oil from your face:)
Repeat the rinsing as often as needed or desired:) It does take a few days to get used to this. You may experience a pimple or two. If you stick with it with will see glorious results. Everyone I have recommended this to has had nothing but success. If you do not have success...stop...but please give it a little while before you reject it completely:) your face might just thank me for it:)...I know your future wrinkles will:)


How to use oil make up remover



2. Vegan Foundation Primer

What Crystal writes about the product:

This is the perfect base for your powder or mousse foundation. It gives a silky smooth finish to your skin that will keep your oil at bay and help your foundation to stay put. You can also set your foundation with a hydration mist if you like but this alone is fine too:) The best thing about this primer is the silky smooth feeling. You do not feel like you are wearing makeup and your skin feels softer and better than it does without makeup. You are going to love this:)

Ingredients: Purified Water, Mica, Boron Nitride, Magnesium Myristate, Glycerin, Cosmocil CQ ( preservative used in contact lens solution and baby wipes), Potassium Sorbate ( food grade preservative)




Note: I haven't used this yet, haven't got a time to experiment with other stuffs too.

First time order from HiFi Cosmetics

Following beauty bloggers or following mineral make up on Twitter can be very infectious.
Beauty bloggers write their review and playing with latest make up products, while following cosmetic companies is really helpful because I can get the latest info of their products and sale time.
Recently, I saw many bloggers gave reviews on Hi-Fi Cosmetics, and of course.... I was curious and allured!


I followed Hi-Fi Cosmetics on Twitter, and when I saw the sale announcement,  I thought this was time to place my first order.
Here's the announcement:

SURPRISE SALE!!!!



--- Buy any 2 eyeshadows or lip glosses and get 1 item (of equal or lesser value) FREE!


Just mention coupon code SURPRISE and your color choices in the message section at checkout. Please double-check your cart and message section before submitting your order. Sale ends Saturday, October 16th, unless otherwise noted.

I convo Veronica (the owner) about the sale, I wanted to know if it's possible to order combination, e.g. 1 eyeshadows and one lipgloss to get 1 free item.
She said: OK!

I have browsed through her store, and boy oh boy.... Colors are pretty!

I'm waiting for my order to ship. I'll update you for the goods later :)

Aromaleigh opens for International orders!

I have decided to forget about getting stuffs from Aromaleigh on closing sale sometime after Kristen announced no International orders on July 2010.
But heyyyyy...... Yesterday I saw her tweet, telling us that it's open again.... Woo Hoo....

Here's the news on http://blog.aromaleigh.com/blog/2010/10/international-aromaleigh-customers-special-chance-to-order.html

"I've got a special announcement for established international customers- I feel very badly about how all the international shipping stuff happened.

I can make an exception to the policy if you're already a customer, and if you agree to work the transaction/order out with me not being responsible for refunds or replacements in case of loss or damage. I can only do this by shipping via International Priority Mail with tracking, which is trackable and I can insure, because it requires a signature for delivery (our previous setup was First Class Mail (not trackable, no signature) and Priority Mail Flat Rate (not trackable, no signature).

Please contact me via aromaleigh at me dot com  (remove spaces and replace at with
@ and dot with a . ) if you'd like to do this, with a list of items you want to order that are in stock, Vault or Site. Thanks!"



Once I receive your list, I will see what's in stock, offer you a chance to choose alternates if not everything is available (it's great if you can provide a list of alternates when you email in case this occurs)... and get back to you with a shipping quote.

You can order items listed in the Vault or on the regular site... please note that it may take me a few days to get back with you, and these orders are shipping a little slower than orders through the automated systems, which are still set up only to accept domestic orders.

I look forward to hearing from you and providing International Customers with this opportunity to get in their last orders, as there has been requests for the Cosmic Farewell collections...

Sincerely,
Kristen


I know what I wanted. When I was making the list, I then changed it because I need to be precautious on spending my money. Final list is here:

Nocturne Overnight Mineral Treatment
Gothic Lolita Rouge in Rococo
Rocks! Sonic Rouge in breathless
Illuminating Perle Powder, mini, in Incandesce
sample sets of the WONDERSTRUCK eye collection
sample sets of the MYTHOS eye collection
sample sets of the SPELLS! eye collection
I wish I can buy all full sets of Aromaleigh's newest eye collections ......
This woman is realy fabulous! Even when she's near to closing the store, she managed to create three gorgeous eye collections! Read the story here. They are prrrretty...... I want them all...........
Don't forget, the official closing of the store is November 15, 2010. Hurry up and shop.

I look forward to hearing from Kristen about the stock :)

Reunion Lunch and Meow's Halloween Collection

I attended a lunch, which was a reunion for Jakarta's former Tae Kwon Do athletes. My niece asked whether she could come, so I brought her. I thanked my friend, Juana Wangsa Putri, who was a world champion (can you believe that??) and compete in 2004 Olympic Games in Greece, for including me in the invitation list.
It's been a long time since I met my Tae Kwon Do friends.
I picked my new dress I bought from online shop in Facebook. I love the dress!
I decided to wear dramatic eye look, smokey eyes using Meow's Halloween Collection as Halloween was coming (no relations what so ever,  lol)
