Anastasia Beverly Hills Riviera Palette Dupe?

Hey, everyone!

Around a week ago, as you might have known already, Anastasia Beverly Hills launched the newest addition to their eye shadow palette family, the Riviera palette.

This launch is a part of their spring collection and I must admit that the palette looks so pretty. To be honest, I’m very tempted to buy it. But, if you’ve followed this blog for a while, you might have known that I’m doing a low-buy year this year. Therefore, according to my low-buy year rules, it’s hard for me to include this palette to my next shopping schedule, which will be on June.

By the way, here I wrote my intro and also my rules for this low-buy year project. Please kindly check it out if you are interested!

There’s a high possibility that I won’t buy this palette anytime soon. At the same time, I also feel like I have these colors already in my own eye shadow palettes collection. So, I tried to browse through my collection, to gather similar shades so that I can create a (sort of) dupe of this palette. Aha! I just practiced one of my tips on low-buy year which I’ve written here!

Okay, without further ado, let’s dive right into it!

ABH Riviera real swatches via IG: @thebeautyradar

The first shade is called ‘sails’. According to Anastasia’s website, sails is a matte white. Actually I don’t have any matte white in my collection, but the closest shade I got was from Urban Decay Born to Run palette, the shade called ‘breakaway’. This shade is the one on the most left of the 1st row of the palette on picture below.

Urban Decay Born to Run Palette

I know from Urban Decay’s website, breakaway is not a white shade, and it’s not even a matte one. But on swatches, it looks light enough on my skin tone. Stay tune or skip to the end of this blog post to see the swatches!

The next shade is called ‘yacht’. Yacht is a duo chrome mauvy taupe with a violet shift. It is indeed a unique shade because of the shift. I think I have a shade that similar to taupe in my collection, but it doesn’t have that kind of shift. This shade is still from Urban Decay Born to Run palette, the shade called ‘smog’, which is the one on the 2nd row and the 2nd from right.

The next shade is called ‘seychelles’. Seychelles is a metallic aqua marine. I also don’t have any aqua marine shade in my collection. But I think I can use this shade from Colourpop Chasing Rainows palette, the one called ‘on one’, as a replacement instead.

Colourpop Chasing Rainbows Palette

PS: stay tuned until the end to get a 20% off discount code to shop on Colourpop website (NOT A CLICK BAIT)

The next shade is called ‘palermo’. Palermo is a metallic jewel pink. From my collection, the one that’s quite similar is from Colourpop Through My Eyes palette, the shade called ‘nocturne’. From picture below, nocturne is the one on the last row, the 2nd from right. On Colourpop website, nocturne is actually a metallic rosy red. But on swatches, it looks pretty similar to palermo, despite of the description.

Colourpop Through My Eyes Palette

The next shade is called ‘seaside’. Seaside is described as duo chrome silver with a subtle blue shift. Although it is a silver shade, because of the blue shift, it looks blue enough. And from my collection, the one that similar to palermo is another shade from Colourpop Chasing Rainbows, the shade called ‘lucid’. On Colourpop’s website, lucid is metallic eggplant with a blue flip. So it indeed also has blue element in it!

The next shade is ‘inheritance’. Inheritance is a metallic true gold. And this one is undoubtedly very similar (if not the same!) to, again, from Colourpop Chasing Rainbows, the shade called ‘so meta’. Even on Colourpop’s website, so meta is described as metallic marigold.

The next shade is ‘mediterranean’. Mediterranean is a metallic sky blue. I don’t have anything similar to metallic sky blue from my collection. But I’m pretty sure I can use shade ‘radio’ from Urban Decay Born to Run as an alternative. Radio is a deep emerald satin, though. So it’s far muted than mediterranean.

Move on to the 2nd row of ABH Riviera, the first one on the left is shade called ‘estate’. Estate is a matte soft pastel peachy pink. On my collection, I have the one that’s fairly similar, which is from Colourpop Chasing Rainbows, the shade called ‘woke’. And on Colourpop’s website, it is describe as matte mid-tone salmon pink. So they are indeed in the same color family.

The next shade is ‘cabana’. Cabana is matte muted birch mustard. I also found the one that’s very similar to this one, again from Colourpop Through My Eyes, the shade called ‘wild soul’. Wild soul is a matte dusty mustard yellow on Colourpop’s website. Again, they are in the same color family!

The next shade is ‘coastline’. ‘Coastline’ is a matte pastel soft peach. The one that I think the most similar from my collection is from Colourpop Through My Eyes, the shade called ‘euphoric’. Although on Colourpop’s website euphoric is described as matte bright true orange, on swatches, it looks pastel enough so I decided to use it as a dupe for coastline.

The next shade is ‘bahamas’. Bahamas is matte bright bold candy hot pink pressed pigment (such a mouthfull name!). In my collection, I have several pinks, but I think the one that’s bright, bold, and hot enough is from Colourpop Chasing Rainbows, the shade called ‘manifest it’. Manifest it is describe as matte fuchsia with pink flecks. So it is indeed can be considered as bright bold candy hot pink!

Not many shades left, the next one is ‘monte carlo’. Monte carlo is matte cool mid-tone pink. I chose the shade ‘wish list’ from Colourpop Chasing Rainbows as an alternative for this one. Although wish list is described as a matte vibrant coral, on swatches, it looks pink enough!

The next shade is ‘cannes’. Cannes is a matte bright violet purple pressed pigment. This one I got also a VERY similar one, a shade called ‘sista’ from Colourpop Good Sport palette. Sista is described as matte vibrant violet. From picture below, you can find it on the far right from the 1st row.

Colourpop Good Sport Palette

And, finally, the very last shade called ‘palm’. Palm is a matte dark chocolate brown pressed pigment. And I also got the one that looks identical, from Colourpop Give It to Me Straight palette, the shade called ‘actually’. Actually is a matte deepened chocolate brown. From picture below, you can find it on the far right of the last row.

Colourpop Give It to Me Straight Palette

So, here is the swatches of all shades I mentioned above!

PS: I borrowed my husband’s arm for the swatches ^.^

What do you think, guys? Are they similar enough? XD

Personally, I’m quite satisfied with my own findings and researches. Now I am not tempted anymore to buy this palette. And I can’t wait to create some looks using the dupe ones!

By the way, I also made a video when I live swatch everything I mentioned above. Please do watch it here if you are more of an auditory type of person!

And here are all palettes I used to make the dupe!

20% Discount Code

Try High-End Products while Saving Money

Hello! In today’s post, I am going to share with you a trend in beauty community that I saw in my country, Indonesia. I don’t know whether this trend is actually happening in other countries too or not, and as I’m writing this post, I haven’t done any research about that. But, if you do know something similar like this in your country or in other countries, please do let us know in the comment section below and I’ll update this post when you do!

So, what is the trend actually?

As beauty community grows rapidly in the past years, new products are released almost every single day. And by how fast information can travel these days, it’s so easy for us to know what’s going on ‘everywhere’ in the world. We can immediately get updated when a certain product is released and learn more about the product not only from the official brand but also from beauty influencers from across the nation.

Buying stuffs from overseas has also never been easier. Many international brands has open their official retailer outside their country of origins. There are also those who are called ‘personal shoppers’ or ‘online shop’ that ‘in some ways’ can help us getting products that have no official retailer here in our country. And even many more indie brands have offered an international shipping service.

Consequently, the desire of trying new products every time gets higher and higher. Sometimes we buy things because it’s a new necessary one, or because it’s a unique product that we don’t have yet. Or we buy things just because many people like them and they look nice?

However, sometimes, after we try them, they don’t work on us as good as they work on others ๐Ÿ˜ฅ So we end up not finishing them until they gone bad >.< And in the end we are just wasting our money on products we don’t even finish.

The thing is, money doesn’t grow on a tree! How do we fulfill this desire?

Here in Indonesia, there’s a system where we can buy products without having to pay a lot and buy the full sized. It is called ‘shared items’. So in this system, the seller stocked on several full size products and we as customers can buy only a few ml of it and the seller will store it in a small container. Just like the picture below.

For example, a seller sell shared items of Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation in several different shades (let’s say: sand, tawny, rattan, etc) and sizes (usually: 2 ml, 3 ml, 5 ml, 10 ml). When it comes to expensive product like this, if we try it for the first time, there’s a possibility that it doesn’t work for our skin or the shade doesn’t match, so buying the full size is a bit risky. Therefore, ‘shared items’ is actually a good solution. We can even buy some different shades to test which one works best for us.

Another example is Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray that was sold in a spray bottle like this.

Also Too Faced Peach Perfect Powder that was sold in a jar with shifter like this.

And there are also other products that I’ve never purchased, such as Nars Liquid Blush in a small jar, Benefit Hoola Bronzer in a small eye shadow pan, and even Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade in a small jar. Sorry I can’t include the picture of these products because they belong to the seller.

Actually, we can buy not only high end products, but also basically any products that can be shared, such as primer, liquid highlighter, toner, essence, etc.

Here are all products I’ve ever purchased. Some I purchased because I want to try them but unsure about the shade, and some others I purchased because I’m afraid it won’t work on my skin.

What do you think about this trend? Do you think it’s necessary and helpful? Will you try buying shared items if you ever had any chance? Or will you stick to buying the full sized products? Let me know your thoughts!

Until next time!

Concealer Battle: Too Faced vs Colourpop

Hey, everyone! Today I will be sharing with you my current top favorite concealers that I’ve been using pretty much everyday when I do my makeup. They are the Too Faced Born This Way Multi-use Sculpting Concealer and Colourpop No Filter Concealer.

To be honest, the title of this post kinda burden me as I’m using ‘versus’ on it. I’m not a professional makeup artist or expert in makeup so I think I’m in no way qualified to compare both concealers. However, as I’m consistently wearing them, I feel like the two of them actually have their own pros and cons that are comparable.

Colourpop No Filter Concealer

I use shade ‘medium 28’ for this one and it is slightly darker than my skin tone. But I can make it work with a little bit of powder and blending.

Since the first time I tried this concealer, I’m amazed at how easy it is to blend. It just melts into my skin. The coverage is medium and build-able, but it doesn’t feel heavy. It gives such a natural look. On the day when I want a no-makeup makeup look, I only wear this concealer on my under-eye area, my acne spots, the bridge of my nose, my forehead, and my chin, blend it, add a little bit of powder, and I’m good to go. It really is making my skin doesn’t need any filter anymore. I even prefer this concealer than a BB cream for a simple and quick makeup routine!

Besides that, it is also quite long wearing. I never properly test it out, though, but I never had any issue where my concealer looks separated at the end of the day. And by ‘the end of the day’ here I meant is when I wore it for at least 8 hours before I took it off. Moreover, it is also non-transferable! In fact, I hardly find any cons about this concealer. It is affordable and even cruelty free. I couldn’t ask for more.

Too Faced Multi-use Sculpting Concealer

This concealer was really hyped up at the time it was just released back around July 2018. And I can’t lie that I was also curious of how good it is as so many beauty influencers liking it and comparing it to the Tarte Shape Tape concealer. However since I was (and am always) on a budget, I didn’t immediately buy it when it was released. Instead, I got it on Black Friday sale at Sephora online for 15% off.

Before I bought it, I watched many beauty influencers’ first impression and reviews about this product on Youtube. According to what I watched, almost all of them fell in love with this concealer ever since the first time they tried it. Therefore, my expectation was a bit high.

I also noticed that many said that a little goes along way with this concealer. For example if we use it for under-eye area, we don’t have to put several strokes, instead, we only need some dots, and it’s enough to cover triangle area under our eyes.

I got this in the shade ‘light beige’. This shade is actually lighter than (what I think is) my actual shade (by guessing from pictures online) because I mainly tend to use it to brighten my under-eye area. The first time I tried it, I was so ready to practice all advice I got from watching reviews about this concealer on Youtube. However surprisingly, my first impression was not very good. It was cakey and creased so bad under my eye on the day I tried it for the first time. I also felt it was quite dry and heavy.

At that day, actually I tried many different products for the first time all together. Therefore I thought it might be because of other new products that didn’t work on me, not necessarily because of this concealer. So tried it again on another day with products that I know work well on me. But, I still got the same result. Creased, cakey, and heavy.

Since it is quite an expensive product and many people recommend it, I really want to like it and make it work, so I tried again on another day. But this time, I applied only teeny tiny bit of dots, even smaller sizes than before. And guess what? It finally worked! It didn’t creased throughout the day, wasn’t cakey, and wasn’t heavy at all! So now I know, maybe because I’m not used to heavy full coverage makeup, I need even less amount than what was recommended by most of people.

So, for the Too Faced concealer, it was a bit of learning curve for me. But, I can make it work in the end.

Comparison

Now let’s try comparing both concealers.

After I know just the right amount to use of the Too Faced concealer, my makeup has never been as flawless since. I highly recommend it for those who want a full coverage concealer, but for those who want a natural look, go for the Colourpop one.

Both of them are long-wearing and I never had any issue of them transferring into my clothes. However, from my personal experience,
the Too Faced one feels a little bit dry, but that maybe because my under-eye area is extremely dry these days. But, I never feel Colourpop is drying at all even when I use it for under my eye area.

Price wise, the Too Faced one retails for 29 USD and contains 0.5 fl oz, makes it 5.8 USD per 0.1 fl oz. While the Colourpop one retails for 6 USD and contains 0.14 fl oz, makes it 4.2 USD per 0.1 fl oz. So actually the Too Faced one is not far more expensive compare to the Colourpop one! It just contains more products in a tube making it seems much more expensive. Please also remember that the tube of the Too Faced one is made of glass (sort of) material, while the Colourpop one is made of plastic/ acrylic kind of material, so I’m sure it also contributes in the pricing.

If I had to choose between one, actually, it’s so obvious. I will go with the Colourpop one. It’s cheaper, easier to use (I can make it work since the first time I tried it), and easier to carry (contains less product in a tube makes it lighter and the tube material which made of plastic feels more safe to carry).

So, what do you think of my review? Have you ever tried any or both of these concealers? What do you think about them? Or do you recommend another concealer?

Thank you for reading and see you next time!

I was Reborn

Hey, everyone! This is my first post after this blog was officially changed from ‘Atashi no Hanashi’ to ‘Unpretty Vanity’. If you want to know what this blog will be about from now on, please do check section ‘About’ on the menu!

On this post, I will tell you why I changed this blog’s name. Thank you if you are willing to read this post! ๐Ÿ™‚

So, there are many things happen to me recently and it made me unable to post on this blog as frequently as before. But actually, I never forget this blog and I always wanted to come back. That’s why I still came by from time to time to reply comments on this blog.

I may say ‘recently I couldn’t find time to write a blog post’, but I believe it’s just an excuse. The thing is ‘I didn’t make enough effort to make time for this blog’. I started this blog back in 2012 and until now this blog has been a space for me to pour my idea and share my experience that I hope can be useful for everyone who read it. I realized that I want to continue this and never abandon this blog anymore.

I took some time to think what I really want to write on this blog specifically, because I think recently my posts became so messy and un-directed. Because I have such diverse hobby (traveling, books, makeups, Harry Potter), I can’t decide what I want to write the most, therefore I wrote everything, and therefore this blog became so disorganized. I need to narrow down the theme of this blog so that I can have motivation to write and people with specific interests can keep coming back to this blog.

At the same time, coincidentally, I started realizing that there are many things I haven’t finished among my belongings, such as books (I have a pile of new books I haven’t finished reading), makeups (I keep buying makeup even though I know I have enough already), post drafts (I wrote several drafts that I didn’t finished because I lost motivation of writing them), and so on. And I don’t want to become this kind of person. I must finish what I have started.

Therefore, I started minimalist lifestyle just recently. I started it by promising to myself that I will NOT buy anything until June 2019 unless I finish what I already have. And ‘anything’ here includes everything: books, makeups, clothing, bags, shoes, accessories, etc. I also will start reading all of new books I haven’t finished reading on 2018.

And coincidentally (actually I started to believe that this was destined to be), several videos with titles that include ‘low buy year 2019’ or ‘no buy year 2019’ were popped on my Youtube recommendations. Out of curiosity, I watched some of those videos, and it’s like ringing a bell in my head, ‘Ah, so this is what I actually will also do. A project called ‘low buy year 2019”.

I am completely aware that promising something to our self will not run successfully if we don’t share it with others. And then I think, ‘why not write this project on my blog?’. By sharing it on my blog, it’s like I promise to public and therefore I will feel obliged to really finish this project. Besides that, I might find other people who are also currently carrying the same or similar promise/ project, and we can cheer up each other!

And this is how atashinohanashi.wordpress.com was reborn to unprettyvanity.com. I want to record my ‘low buy 2019’ journey, and furthermore, my ‘minimalist lifestyle’ journey on this blog and share it with you, and I hope it can inspire you in any possible way!

Actually, the name ‘unprettyvanity’ was not a new name. I have been using it since around mid 2017 on my Instagram account where I mainly shared about my makeup/ skin care products review. However, this IG account was also abandon for around a year. Therefore, I want to use that IG account and this blog simultaneously and (hopefully) consistently from now on to record this journey. If you feel like it, please also follow me on instagram.com/unprettyvanity ๐Ÿ™‚

If I was asked, ‘why ‘unpretty vanity’ tho?’, it is because (as I’ve briefly mentioned on the ‘About’ section on the menu above), I don’t have tons of fancy books or luxurious makeups like other instagram/ internet celebrities to share. I might only be able to share the same things over and over again. I have a vanity I love, but it might be not as pretty as others. Hence the name ‘Unpretty Vanity’. Psst, I also love to play with words, so I tried to find another word that rhymes with word ‘vanity’ ๐Ÿ˜€

Well, I think I said enough! If you reach this paragraph, thank you for reading my rambling. If you are new to this blog, let’s be friends! And finally, on this January 1st, 2019 I want to say, ‘Welcome 2019! And welcome to my ‘low buy 2019′!’

Tes 17 Jam Pemakaian Foundation Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay in Place

Halo, semuanya!

Dari judulnya, teman-teman yang follow blog ini pasti sudah bisa menebak bahwa postingan kali ini akan membicarakan hal yang sangat-sangat berbeda dengan yang biasa saya tulis di sini. Bagi teman-teman beauty lovers yang sampai di blog ini karena ingin membaca review tentang foundation ini, selamat datang dan salam kenal!

Mungkin untuk perkenalan sedikit, saya sendiri adalah seorang beauty enthusiast yang sebenarnya sudah cukup lama hobi mencoba-coba beauty products, tapi baru kali ini saya benar-benar ingin menuliskan review sebuah produk seperti ini. Ini adalah kali pertama saya menulis post dengan tema seperti ini jadi mohon maaf jika ada yang kurang jelas dalam penjabarannya nanti, ya. Baiklah tanpa berlama-lama lagi, mari kita mulai saja reviewnya! ^^

Intro

Seperti yang mungkin sudah teman-teman ketahui, foundation (mulai sekarang disebut foundie saja ya) Estee Lauder adalah salah satu foundie high end paling tersohor di kalangan beauty guru. Namun, disebabkan harganya yang memang tidak terjangkau, saya selalu maju mundur untuk membelinya, meskipun dia telah ada di wish list saya sangat lama.

Saya sendiri, selama sekitar 4 tahunan ini lumayan suka mencoba-coba berbagai produk kecantikan, tidak pernah memiliki produk high end apa pun. Semua produk yang saya pakai adalah drugstore atau lokal. Namun saya tahu, jika suatu saat ini saya akan pada akhirnya membeli produk high end, produk pertama yang saya beli akan berupa foundie. Karena menurut saya, make up akan terlihat bagus jika base-nya atau dasarnya lah yang bagus. Oleh sebab itu, foundie estee lauder ini memang ada di no.1 wish list saya.

Hingga akhirnya pada bulan Juni 2018 lalu, ceritanya tabungan saya sudah terkumpul alhamdulillah, saya pun mulai browsing shade foundie estee ini yang cocok untuk warna kulit saya. Dari hasil browsing ini, sebenarnya saya masih ragu mau ambil shade yang mana. Sementara, saya memang berniat beli online saja karena harganya yang jauh lebih murah daripada di konter resmi (maaf ya, estee). Ada juga online shope yang menjual versi shared-nya, namun saya merasa harganya tidak worth it dibanding beli langsung full sized (karena saya sudah yakin saya mau beli full sized jadi tidak merasa perlu beli shared). Alhasil saya pun belum jadi beli online.

Hingga pada bulan Juli 2018, saya ada keperluan ke Singapura, maka saya pun memutuskan membeli di duty free bandara Changi saja sekalian swatch shade-nya langsung di kulit saya. Akhirnya, inilah shade tercocok bagi kulit saya, yaitu Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay in Place SPF 10 2N2 Buff.

Kondisi Wajah Saya

Sebelum kita lanjut ke review pemakaian, ada baiknya saya jelaskan juga tipe kulit saya. Kulit saya termasuk oily-combination, berminyak di bagian T-zone namun tidak terlalu parah, kering sekali di bawah mata, dan normal di bagian lain. Bagian yang kering di bagian bawah mata ini sering patchy jika foundienya tidak cocok, dan pasti creasing kalau pakai concealer terlalu banyak, jadi memang agak tricky.

Saya memiliki jerawat hormonal, yaitu PASTI berjerawat satu dua biji saat lagi ‘dapet’. Jadi di wajah saya banyak bekas jerawat yang menghitam. Namun untuk tekstur cenderung rata, tidak bopeng-bopeng, dan tidak ada jerawat meradang yang merah-merah.

Selain itu, hidung saya cukup sering komedoan, dan pori-pori di sekitar hidung cukup besar.

Review Pemakaian Selama 17 Jam

Sejak saat beli itu hingga sekarang ini, saya sudah cukup sering menggunakan foundie ini dan alhamdulillah cocok di kulit saya yang oily-combination serta tidak menimbulkan jerawat atau breakout. Namun, saya belum pernah benar-benar memakainya dalam waktu yang lama dan dalam kondisi tidak ideal (cuaca panas dan mobilitas tinggi). Jadi saya belum pernah benar-benar membuktikan claim-claim yang disebutkan estee di websitenya ini:

Flawless. Natural. Matte. Feels lightweight and so comfortable, you wonโ€™t believe itโ€™s super long wear. No touchups needed.

Unifies uneven skintone and covers imperfections with buildable, medium-to-full coverage.

Stays color true. Wonโ€™t look grey on deeper skintones.

Double Wear is oil-free and oil-controlling. Waterproof and transfer-resistant, it lasts in hot and humid weather.

Keeps up with your busy day. For millions of women, itโ€™s Double Wear or nothing. Put it on once and donโ€™t think twice.

Kesempatan itu akhirnya datang pada akhir Oktober 2018 lalu. Saya dijadwalkan untuk menghadiri pelantikan dokter sepupu saya. Acara akan berlangsung dari pukul 07.30 pagi hingga 13.00 siang, lokasi semi-outdoor (di ruangan terbuka namun ada atapnya), ada jadwal makan siangnya, dan saya akan mengenakan kebaya. Saya pun lagi ‘dapet’ jadi tidak perlu wudhu sama sekali. Pas sekali ya semua kondisi ini sangat mendukung untuk mencoba ketahanan suatu foundie. Maka saya pun sudah meniatkan akan memakai foundie estee dari pagi sampai malam sebelum tidur.

Semalam sebelum hari H, saya juga menyempatkan membersihkan komedo dengan Innisfree Blackhead Balm dan Biore Pore Pack, serta memakai sheet mask. Bisa dibilang kondisi kulit saya sedang cukup prima.

Oke, pagi harinya, saya selesai memakai foundie pada pukul 06.00. Ini foto ketika saya baru memakai riasan mata dan foundie, belum selesai make up seluruh wajah, dan TANPA concealer ataupun color-corrector sama sekali.

154157203795160705

Bisa dilihat bahwa warna kulit sudah rata sepenuhnya, namun di dahi memang ada jerawat kecil yang muncul (jerawat hormonal karena lagi ‘dapet’). Namun semua bekas-bekas jerawat dan warna yang tidak rata sudah tertutupi sempurna dan menghasilkan base makeup yang flawless.

Saat baru pakai foundie ini, saya langsung merasa wajah saya sangat matte dan tidak tacky. Maka saya pun memutuskan untuk tidak menggunakan loose powder dengan teknik baking, melainkan hanya dab-dab dengan pressed powder karena saya juga tidak mau look ini terlihat banyak layer dan powdery.

154157203795160705 (1)

Oh ya, saya akan menuliskan di akhir post ini semua produk yang saya pakai di makeup look kali ini supaya teman-teman juga bisa tau produk apa yang mendukung dalam uji coba pemakaian foundie estee kali ini.

Pada pukul 07.30 saya dan sepupu otw ke lokasi acara lalu foto-foto di luar gedung hingga pukul 09.30. Selama 2 jam ini, tidak ada oil yang terproduksi dan saya tidak melihat adanya keperluan untuk touch up sama sekali. Untungnya memang cuaca sedang cerah berangin (bukan terik panas menggentang), jadi meskipun memakai kebaya, saya juga tidak merasa terlalu bekeringat. Acara pelantikan pun mulai pada pukul 09.30 hingga 12.00. Selama acara berlangsung saya hanya duduk bersama tamu-tamu lainnya di semacam tenda beratapkan tarup dan di depan kami ada kipas angin yang sangat memadai. Foundie masih sangat sangat aman.

Sekitar pukul 12.00 tamu undangan dipersilakan makan siang prasmanan seperti kalau kita ke undangan pernikahan. Saya memilih menu sup, capcay, fillet ikan rica-rica, serta minum teh hangat. Sengaja pilih yang panas, berkuah, berminyak, dan pedas supaya bisa melihat apakah akhirnya foundienya goyah ๐Ÿ˜€ Tapi maaf lupa banget ngefoto makanannya sebagai bukti karena waktu itu sudaah sangat kelaparan secara terakhir makan adalah sebelum jam 6 pagi ๐Ÿ˜€

Setelah selesai makan dan minum, saya pun membersihkan sekitar mulut saya dengan kertas tisu, dan sangat-sangat surprisingly, foundienya tidak ada yang menempel sama sekali di tisunya. Namun di bagian T-zone sudah muncul shine tapi masih terlihat seperti glowy sehat bukan minyak yang greasy ataupun foundie yang mulai melelehย *nangis terharu*. Sebagus itu T_T

Ini foto setelah makan siang. Saya sudah touch up lipstiknya ya ini. Bisa dilihat bahwa wajah masih sangat-sangat terkontrol.

154157203795160705 (2)

Oke lanjut. Sekitar jam 1 siang kami pulang ke rumah, namun jam 4 sore berencana keluar lagi untuk makan malam dalam rangka syukuran keluarga. Saya tidak menghapus makeup, dan memang makeupnya terasa sangat nyaman sampai saya pun tidak merasa harus buru-buru membersihkannya. Beda yang ketika kita selesai suatu acara dan makeupnya sudah tidak karuan bentuknya, bleber ke saana kemari, patchy, luntur, dan segala macem, pasti kita pengennya segera cuci muka. Nah kalau ini tidak ada perasaan seperti itu sama sekali. Saya bahkan sempat tidur siang masih menggunakan makeup ๐Ÿ˜€

Bangun sekitar jam 3 sore, saya touch up sedikit karena memang mukanya beler banget secara baru bangun tidur. Touch upnya hanya menggunakan bloting paper, bedak, dan setting spray. Seperti ini penampakan saya setelah bangun tidur masih dengan makeup yang sama.

154157203795160705 (3)

Acara makan malam pun berlangsung, saya makan ayam ungkep, ayam goreng, dan tempe mendoan plus sambal yang cukup pedas. Hingga saat akhir waktu makanย yaitu sekitar pukul 7 malam, foundie bener-bener masih menempel dengan baik, bahkan tidak ada bagian yang mulai luntur di T-zone yang notabenenya mulai oily.

Sepulang makan malam, saya masih melanjutkan jalan-jalan ke taman bermain lampion bersama anak dan orang tua saya. Seperti ini penampakan saat jalan-jalan sekitar pukul 8 malam.

154157203795160705 (4)

Mukanya udah capek ๐Ÿ˜€

154157203795160705 (5)

Di T-Zone terlihat shiny tapi masih wajar

Dan pada akhirnya, hari saya pun berakhir pada pukul 20.30. Kami pun pulang ke rumah. Berikut foto saya sesaat setelah pulang. Masih terlihat glowy sehat.

154157203795160705 (6)

Saya pun melepas jilbab serta dalaman jilbab yang berbahan rajut. Dan ternyata bahkan tidak ada foundie yang menempel di jilbab maupun di dalaman jilbab saya. Lalu saya mencoba bloting pakai tisu, seperti ini penampakan tisunya.

154157203795160705 (7)

Sebersih ini, hanya ada warna coklat muda sedikit di kiri bawah.

Sekitar pukul 23.00, saya akhirnya memutuskan sudah saatnya membersihkan wajah karena saya sudah sangat mengangtuk. Saya lalu mencoba men-swipe bagian di dekat hidung sebelah kiri dan dagu untuk melihat apakah foundienya terangkat. Ternyata setelah 17 jam sejak pemakaian pertama, foundie pun mulai transfer sedikit.

154157203795160705 (8)

Semoga bisa terlihat dari foto di atas, di bagian dekat hidung sebelah kanan dan dagu ada foundie yang sudah terhapus.

Lalu saya pun membersihkan wajah dengan face wipes, seperti ini hasilnya.

IMG_20181025_230049

Masih ada sebanyak ini foundie yang menempel di wajah saya bahkan setelah 17 jam.

Kesimpulan

Setelah saya sendiri mencoba foundie ini selama 17 jam dan full kegiatan dari pagi hingga malam, maka berikut ini kesimpulan yang saya dapatkan mengenai foundie ini:

  • Ringan di wajah, seperti tidak memakai foundie
  • Hasil natural
  • Warna tidak abu-abu di wajah, tidak oxidize
  • Tidak tacky atau lengket-lengket saat baru dipakai, langsung matte
  • Tidak memerlukan pemakaian bedak berlebihan untuk menge-setnya
  • Tidak transfer, tidak menempel di pakaian
  • Tidak mudah luntur dan pudar
  • Tahan tanpa touch up sekitar 9 jam
  • Tidak greasy sama sekali bahkan hingga pemakaian selama 17 jam
  • Tidak crease sama sekali di bawah mata dan smile line meskipun tidak pakai concealer
  • Tidak cakey
  • Coverage medium dan buildable, dapat menutupi warna tidak rata dengan baik meskpun tanpa concealer
  • Menyamarkan pori-pori
  • Tidak mengaksentuasi komedo dan jerawat
  • Semakin lama dipakai, semakin menyatu dengan kulit

Beberapa kondisi yang menurut saya mendukung percobaan ini bisa memberikan hasil yang baik adalah:

  • Karakter kulit saya yang berminyak namun memang tidak berlebihan dan bukan acne prone skin
  • Kondisi kulit wajah saya sedang cukup baik (komedo baru dibersihkan, tidak banyak jerawat matang, lumayan smooth)
  • Cuaca yang tidak terlalu panas dan lumayan berangin sehingga membuat saya tidak terlalu berkeringat dan mengeluarkan minyak

Dan terakhir, berikut daftar produk yang saya pakai di makeup look ini:

  • Wet n Wild & Canmake Brushes
  • Etude House Drawing Eye Brow – gray brown
  • Maybelline Brow Precise Fiber Volumizing Eyebrow Gel – medium brown
  • Colourpop No Filter Concealer – medium 28 (was medium 30) untuk membingkai alis
  • Innisfree Eye Primer
  • Colourpop Eye Shadow Palette – Give it To Me Straight
  • Maybelline Hyper Impact Eye Liner
  • L’oreal Lash Paradise Mascara
  • Wet n Wild Photofocus Primer – matte finish
  • Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay in Place SPF 10 – 2N2 Buff
  • Fanbo Beauty Blender
  • Wet n Wild Photofocus Pressed Powder – neutral buff
  • Wet n Wild Contouring Palette – dulce de leche
  • Elf Blush Palette – light
  • Wet n Wild Megaglo Highlighter – precious petals
  • Wardah Exclusive Lip Cream – 17 rosy cheeks
  • Wet n Wild Photofocus Setting Spray – matte finish

Penutup

Baiklah, demikian cerita pengalaman saya menggunakan foundie ini selama 17 jam dari jam 6 pagi hingga 11 malam. Semua cerita yang saya sampaikan di atas insya Allah jujur, mungkin ada yang lupa-lupa sedikit, namun insya Allah tidak mengubah kenyataan yang ingin disampaikan. Saya merasa sangat puas bisa membuktikan sediri kualitas dari foundie ini. Saya jadi bisa bilang sendiri bahwa foundie ini benar-benar worth the price.

Satu catatan adalah, karena foundie ini ternyata terbukti sangat sweat-proof, water-prrof, dan oil-proof, saya tidak menyarankan untuk dipakai jika teman-teman yang muslimah akan melewati waktu solat dan harus berwudhu, karena saya cukup yakin air tidak akan sampai ke kulit jika kita memakai foundie ini.

Semoga review ini bermanfaat bagi teman-teman yang baru akan membeli foundie ini, ya! Sampai ketemu di review beauty products selanjutnya!
