What’s the Difference Between Glam Glow Youthmud and Supermud?

“On October 3rd, he asked me what day it was.”

But it is 6th already and welcome to the new weekend of October! I am so excited with this month because it is actually going closer to my birthday. Haha! However, I would be showing you the other product of Glam Glow which is Supermud.

Actually this time I am more into going to expose the review of Glam Glow Supermud but no need to worry! You can check out the previous review about Glam Glow Youthmud before or after this one.

Black and White. To be honest I have not figured out the philosophy why the color is black, why the color is white. If we use our logic, something about youth is supposed to be something bright not dark because we are chasing bright future precisely and something about super is supposed to be something dark not bright, umm like batman because super? Haha! Never mind these thoughts, but one thing that I could figure out and see the clear difference is its scent. And something the same is the chunky textures you find inside which is real tea leafs.

Most people say Glam Glow Masks are a “facial in a bottle“, and I guess I am buying it. The after effect I always have after using it has always been fresher, smoother, and softer than ever which is perfectly amazing. As you can see from the picture, the mask color of Supermud is actually much darker and its texture is more slushy but dense. Have a closer look here,

Glam Glow Supermud is also known best for those who want to draw out of their acnes and this is also best for anti-aging mask. The application itself is still the same like the Youthmud, I usually leave it for about 15 minutes and rinse it with water.

IMG_3839

The mask that I wear above is Supermud. That is how it looks when it has dried, and if you take a little closer by zooming in the picture to my nose, you can see that the mask is working well because of the oil are being extracted from my pores. However if you have never used Glam Glow Masks before, don’t freak out if your skin seems to feel burned and tingled. That is clearly normal and that is how it works. However you know your skin, if it feels more burned on your skin, you better rinse it off.

IMG_3831

To sum it up, the difference between Glam Glow Youthmud and Supermud is just its goods and physical look. For physical look, you have seen the difference from its texture, color, and scent. And for the goods itself, Youthmud is for anti-aging benefits and I believe that is why it is called “Youthmud” and Supermud is best to draw out the small blackheads and acnes. However both of them are best for anti-aging benefits. Therefore, I would recommend you guys if you don’t have any troubles with your skin, you better use Youthmud and if you have, Supermud is best for you.

I hope you find this review helpful. Personally, I love using Glam Glow Masks because I totally can feel the result after using it since I like instant stuffs. Haha! However it is better used for 3 times in a week for a better result. Before ending this article, there is a fun trivia about Youthmud where actually the mud base itself is from South of France Mediterranean Sea and that is why it is pretty expensive but worth to try.

Have you tried one of these before? Do you like it? Share your thoughts below and have a great weekend! Xx

Facial Essentials by Clean and Clear You Should Try

Welcome back to the third Saturday of September! I am so happy that I can finally rest my head on the pillow without having any burdens, close my eyes gracefully without any deadlines, and breathe peacefully without any madness, yet it also happens for now. Ah!

Speaking of burdens, deadlines, and madness, actually I recently had a kinda rough week. Harsh words were rolling in, stumbling upon my head like a car crash however I am so glad that I could prove them wrong and always stand still with myself because a great pleasure in life is doing what others say. you can’t.

IMG_3596

Back to this weekend’s topic, I have these facial essentials from Clean and Clear hampers I received. I have been using these five items and I would like to show you what I like the most from these products. Let’s get started with the first item,

IMG_3598

Foaming Facial Wash

This one is very suitable for those who want to remove excess oil and prevent pimples which do not cause dry skin but I don’t really use this one that often since my skin does not really have any pimples thus I do not think I should wear it much.

IMG_3599

Oil-Control Toner

This one is basically my favorite. I usually apply this with moisten cotton ball or pad around my face and neck after having my face washed. It always makes my face feel fresher than ever.

IMG_3600

Facial Cleanser Brightening Lemon

This one reminds me of the campaign I made about the first day of college for Clean & Clear. I have always loved the smell and its quick soothing foam as I apply it around my face, I feel fresher than ever after applying it.

IMG_3597

Facial Cleanser Energizing Berry

This one is actually quite similar to the lemon facial cleanser. One thing that differentiate  between them is this one has more berry scents that I am really fond of despite the bursting beads which it also has in it. I like to slowly rub it around as I make circle on my face.

IMG_3601

Natural Bright Wash

This one is basically my very first face wash by Clean & Clear that I had before. I really love the smell since it is a combination of rose water and honey.

So that’s all I have so far for this weekend. After all reviews, I would say that the best of the best item of all is Facial Cleanser Brightening Lemon. I love the smell and the fruity package it has. Do you use Clean & Clear products too? What is your favorite? Share what you think below and have a great weekend! ❤

July Beatitude 2017

July has come to an end where things should be getting better and better. I suppose. Speaking of July, I think this month was a month full of surprises. Many things happened which I had to take the lessons from the fine thin line of happiness and sorrows.

And I guess there was no regret since I decided to minimize my intensity in using social media due to some factors where I cannot be able to stand with the social judgment which have been happening nowadays but don’t worry! I can’t leave the life of blogging since this is a place where I belong and I am so passionate in writing.

Okay, let’s start with the things that havee been a good friend to me sin July. Here goes the first one,



Dead Roses. It might look scary yet satisfying to me! I don’t really understand why I like collecting dead flowers, especially roses, and I find their beauty when it gets old. They just look very authentic and it gets prettier as I leave them to die each day. 



Goldy Shadow. I have always loved this eyeshadow from NYX and I just love it so much to elevate the color of my eyes.

Taking Hollywood by Shari King. I remember I got this book from the biggest book bazzar in Indonesia. I got a half price of the original one which I really found it totally satisfying!

Actually I have not finished reading it but I am so excited to find the ending of this book. This book is about scandals in Hollywood within the life of renowned celebrities.

I have always been a sucker of American Indies. One of the songs that I cannot stop listening to is Poison by Luhx. At first to be honest I didn’t find this song really catchy but the more I listen to it, the more I understand the meaning behind this song. This song is really deep and thoughtful where this song explains that you cannot get over someone because he seems more like a poison and the cure at the same time so you keep coming back to him.

So, that’s all I have so far for July Beatitude 2017. I don’t want to lie to my readers, honestly I have been having a hard battle with my life and I have not found the right words to describe how perplexed I am with this situation. But I believe I surely will be fine, I love you if you have reached this part. Thank you so much for reading because that means a world to me. 

But before I take my cue to leave, whatever is upsetting you right now, it will be okay. Just keep being kind to others and never let yourself locked in your room on your own. Have a great weekend! Xx

Easy Steps I Do to Cover Up Dark Eyebags

Hello, guys! Glad to be back to this lovely weekend. Honestly I have always been bothered with the dark circles on my eyebags and it really gives me the look that brings people to question, “Are you tired?” or even “My God, you look so tired, you don’t need to study that hard”. Phew!

One thing that I always run to is concealer and foundation. They are totally my lifesaver to at least minimize the dark circles I have. This time I am going to show you how I do my make up for my eyebags to cover up these annoying dark circles. Let’s get started!

First thing’s first, here are my weapons to combat the war. Sounds too much? Haha! I will explain you further as the tutorial starts with this one.

Matte Lip Liquid. You might find it weird but this is actually my own trick to cover up the dark circles since I don’t use darker shade like orange color for concealer. I am more comfortable using The Body Shop Crete Carnation Matte Lip Liquid as the first coverage.

Make 3 thin dots and apply them around the dark circles with silicone beauty blender.

I am more comfortable with silicone beauty blender rather than sponge beauty blender because sponge more absorbs the makeup and I find my makeup gets more wasted but not for silicone one.

Concealer. I am using Revlon Colorstay concealer number 03 Light Medium. This is my first time using Revlon’s concealer since I used to stick with L’Oreal but actually they are pretty similar.

I usually make 3 dots under my eyebags. And then I slide the applicator to draw a triangle shape of the applied concealer. Why triangle? It makes the shade look more saturated with the color of your skin and more youthful by higlighting the front area of your face.

After that, rub the applied concealer with a silicone beauty blender to saturate the shade into the color of your skin.

Foundation. I am using Lancôme Mat Miracle 24H. Besides for the whole shade on my face, it actually works out to cover up the dark circles after concealer.

Apply the liquid foundation with the silicone beauty blender as adequate as possible. Remember this foundation is just to thicken the shade of the previous concealer.

Powder. For finishing touch, I am using Chanel Natural Finish Loose Powder. I really love its smooth texture, they are just perfect!

Apply the loose powder around your eyes and cheeks. But actually you can apply it all over your face since it is a loose powder for finishing touch.

And done! Although it doesn’t really cover up the big circles since my eyebags are quite major but it now looks more blended in with my skin.

I hope this eyebags trick could also help you getting rid of the dark circles. They are just really annoying, aren’t they?

Do you have the same problem as mine? And how do you cover it up? Let’s share your experience, I’d like to know more about you guys. Thanks for reading!

The Body Shop Haul Including NEW Lip Matte Liquid

I was recently bumped into The Body Shop store nearby and found some new babies. Not literally babies. Make-ups are the babies.

I was actually looking for a compact powder since I ran out of it and it cried me a river. Kidding! It was also my first time using compact powder from the Body Shop and I thought I was going to give it a review along with another babies too.

Lip Matte Liquid – Crete Carnation 030

The first thing that I would like to review before all is their latest Lip Matte Liquid. They just launched this new type of matte liquid and I wanted to try it out. Its texture is slightly soft, the scent is really sweet which I love the most, but unfortunately I think this is not the best product they have. It doesn’t get matte on my lips that quick and doesn’t really last that long but I still like it to use it at college, home or somewhere around not too far from the neighborhood. It costs for $10.

Osaka Plum Matte 429

But this one is different. It gets matte really quick and lasts quiet longer. I love how it matches with the texture of my lips and its red wine color which I have always wanted. Its textures itself is pretty smooth and I recommend this one for Body Shop’s lipstick.

All-In-One Face Base 052

Finally the savior of my college life has arrived. This is the first time I started to use Body Shop’s powder compact, I am not disappointed to purchase this product since I am head over heals in love with its sophisticated packaging. It also absorbs face oils which could help my skin look fine for the whole day.

Rainforest Radiance – Detangling Spray for Colored Hair

This hairspray has been a good friend to me since highschool since I used to have colored hair though right now I am wearing hijab. I like using this hairspray after shower to keep my hair hydrated though I know the main purpose of its hairspray is to maintain colored hair to stay longer.

Drops of Youth – Youth Bouncy Sleeping Mask

Actually this one is a sample I got from the shopkeeper. Drops of Youth is also The Body Shop’s latest product to be best applied before sleep. It is sort of vitamin to keep your skin hydrated. It felt refreshing as I rubbed it around my face skin and I think I would like to have some more.

That’s all I have got from this week’s shopping haul with The Body Shop. Have you ever tried any of these yet? If yes, tell me what you think and let’s have a conversation in the comment box below. Have a great weekend, loves!

Local Beauty Brand from Bali for Coffee Enthusiast

Hello! It’s good to be finally back to another weekend because I have got something to show you, especially for those who are fond of coffee that much.

I recently received some products from local beauty brand in Bali, Kohvee Story. They are beauty products originally made from coffee and I was informed that their products contain antioxidant, detoxifier, anti-inflammatory, and absolutely the strong scent of coffee.

Honestly this is the first time for me to wear beauty products made from coffee so I thought it wouldn’t hurt to try one, would it?

Coffee Skin Moisturizer

Skin moisturizer has always been the first thing to satisfy my desire in maintaining my skin health. I have heard a lot that caffeine is good for skin, especially in protecting from UV radiation. The first time I applied this product and rubbed it all over my arms and legs, I fell in love with the strong coffee scent and how it saturated with the skin.

For the texture itself, I found it a bit oily and too fluid as I expected it more dense. However I love how my skin starts to smell like coffee and feels smoother after applying it. I use this product twice a day for better result.

Coffee Cleansing Oil

And this is my favorite one because it is a multifunction product where it can be used for face massage and makeup remover which I believe everyone should have this one especially for traveling because you can get two products with two different functions at once.

I usually massage my face with this cleansing oil with two pumps once per three days, it feels very satisfying for relaxation after a long day of school and work. The result on my face this far, it feels smoother and I just love how it soothes my skin that quick.

I think that’s all I have about Kohvee Story. Honestly I totally recommend their products, especially the coffee cleansing oil since that is my favorite one. Have you ever tried it before? If not, would you? Tell me what you think below and share your thoughts with the world!

Have a great weekend and I also would like to send my deepest regards to you who are going to celebrate the Eid Mubarak tomorrow, I hope you all have a great time with your family. Happy holiday! ❤

ESQA Lip Matte Liquid You Should Try

Hello! Since I wanted to try to post more than one blogpost in a week, I thought this week would be the right time to start with. I belive it is the third week of Ramadhan for all Muslims, so I would like to send all my prayers to those who are fasting. May you have courage and health to get through Ramadhan ❤

Soo, I was recently bumped into a local beauty brand from Indonesia named ESQA and I thought I had to share it with you because you really need to try it out too! I tried one of their makeups, the Lip Matte Liquid. Look at these two beautiful babies smiling from your screen,

Let’s see what we got here, I got two shades consist of Dusty Pink and Berry Kiss. The bold one and the nude one. Which one do you prefer? Let’s get started with the nude one.

Dusty Pink

img_1769

In the first glance, I found this shade was totally as nude as the color of my lips. But as I slid the applicator on my lips, I felt thick and smooth textures crashed in bringing the soft color of pink.

img_1770

The pigmentation is really good, and you only need one swipe of the deeper colors to get opaque coverage. It lasts quite longer for approximately 5 hours without heavy meals.

Berry Kiss

img_1768

And this is the bold one and also the best seller one, simply the color is dark purple yet not that dark. A bit lighter but in the perfect pantone of dark purple.

img_1771

This color has always been my favorite because it looks stand out and makes your teeth look whiter. For the pigmentation and the coverage itself are still the same as the Dusty Pink.

I started to love this product because it doesn’t accentuate any dryness or lines on lips. If you love matte lipsticks but want something comfortable and non-drying, these are totally made for you!

Therefore, I do recommend these for you. Hope it gives you more insights for your beauty preference, have a great weekend!

Mysterious Fragrances for Mysterious Women

You can tell how mysterious it looks from its package. They are black, sophisticated, and classy. I believe every woman on earth would crave for this kind of fragrance. Especially women who like to leave their trace behind mysteriously and disappear into the mist like those scenes you have always seen in movies.

I got these super sophisticated fragrances then decided to compile and compare them to see the most mysterious fragrance between them all based on my experience. Let’s get started with the first scent.


Jasmin Noir by Bvlgari

Noir is a word from French meaning black. You can see the package gets more sophisticatedly mysterious with its name. The scent definitely smells like jasmine since the name is Jasmin and the reason why it is noir or black because somehow I can smell an addictive (in a good way) tension for those people who smell this scent when the woman passes by with this perfume. It is mysterious and you really need to try it by yourself. This fragrances lasts super longer, it can stay on your skin for almost 8 hours but after 5 hours, the scent started to fade away. However it still depends on the room temperature you are in.


Good Girl by Carolina Herrera New York

From its appearance, I consider this fragrance wins because it gives a perception of classy sassy and a bit smart assy despite the name is Good Girl. The scent smells like peach and light at first actually which I thought it would give more mysterious smell. This fragrance lasts quiet long for approximately 5 hours in humid temperature.

Black Orchid by Tom Ford

The first time I sprayed it on my wrist, it smelled really strong and a bit minty to me. But after five minutes, its scent slowly changed into something elegant and smooth. This fragrance has the hardest scent to be described and that’s why it smells mysterious. From its package, it looks simply black and I am sure it represents its mystery fragrance.

From three fragrances I reviewed, I think the best fragrance in representing its mysterious scent is Jasmin Noir by Bvlgari. Not only smells mysterious, it smells really alluring and addicting which defines the meaning of belleza. The second place is Black Orchid by Tom Ford and the third place is Good Girl by Carolina Herrera. Honestly it was quiet hard to describe each smell of these perfumes and I tried my best to find words that could be interpreted easily for you. I hope you like this review and I hope it inspires you enough for your perfume collection. Thanks for reading, have a great weekend! 🙂

May Beatitude 2017

I think a little throwback won’t hurt, will it?

Time has passed really fast, earth has revolved for million of times, and here you are still breathing and reading this page. Let’s take a moment to be a little grateful of things that we have had, pennies that we have earned, and loves that we have received.

Honestly this is the first time I started to write about things that I simply adore for each month and I thought May would be a great month to start with. I have several things that had been the most used stuff in May, I just loved it so much and I wanted to share it with you.

IMG_1318

True Blue Spa from Bath & Body Works has a very refreshing scent which could captivate you in tropical ambience. This refreshing citrus body scrub has sugar crystals textures which could tickle your skin. I might say this scrub is different than the others because of its unique textures.

IMG_1317

Although it might look a bit watery inside but you can still find the abundance of sugar crystals inside. This is funny but honestly, it smells like lemon you might have always smelled in toilets at mall or perhaps your lemon car scent. However I still love this one.

IMG_1316

Ocean Blue Mist from Candle-Lite has been a super good friend for accompanying my whole weekend in May. Its calming and sweet scent really matches with True Blue Spa scrub. Just ignite the candle and breathe as much as you want to.

IMG_1315

I think my life has always been filled with books. Girls in White Dresses by Jennifer Close is a book about how a group of girls start worrying their marriage since they feel like everyone they know is getting married. This book tells the readers in three different perspectives where you need to be super sane that you are actually shifting into a different perspective. Why so? Because sometimes I never realized that I was actually shifting into Lauren’s perspective though Close uses third party point of view.

IMG_1314

This National Bestseller book has a very interesting way in delivering the humors which you can relate so much thus it is really recommended to fill your weekend.

IMG_1313

My favorite song in May is I Like Me Better by Lauv. Its unique instrument which sounds like Persian flute (perhaps?) is really ear-catching and Lauv’s soothing voice really stimulates the song into a perfect combination. I remember the first time I heard Lauv’s song ‘Comfortble’ was from Connor Franta’s compilation ‘Common Culture’.

Those are my favorites in May 2017. I had so much fun writing this blogpost and I hope you enjoyed reading this too. What are your favorite stuffs in May? Tell me yours and let’s have a conversation in the comment box below. Have a great weekend! ❤

YSL vs. NYX – What’s the Difference Anyway?

Same color, same function, same form, what’s the difference anyway?

Yves Saint Laurent (YSL) and NYX are two different products where each of it is utterly significantly different in price. And I am wondering what makes them different. According to the experiences I heard from friends since high school until college, NYX has been a good friend to them. Almost everyone has it in their pouch. Whilst my blogger and working friends have always had a thought that quality depends on its price which eventually got them YSL in their pouch.

Processed with VSCO with hb2 preset

However, I would like to see whether price really proves its quality or it could be the other way around. I got two lipsticks from NYX and YSL with similar shades, I reviewed it based on my experience. Let’s get started with the first shade.

NYX Matte Lipstick: Natural (MLS12)

Truthfully, NYX has also been a good friend to me since freshman year in college. This shade gives me a neutral effect onto my lips. Its smooth texture gets matte quickly and it lasts approximately 3 hours without heavy meals since its color is a bit nude and looks more like light purple.

YSL: Rouge Pur Couture (62N802)


This shade looks really similar with NYX but there is one thing which could differentiate YSL and NYX. Its texture is super smooth as I slide the shade around my lips. It lasts longer for approximately 5 hours without heavy meals but still needs a retouch if you want it to stay fabulous on your lips.

NYX Butter Lipstick: Mary Janes (BLS08)

Red lips always lie. If only you know that verse from a song, you can relate. Its color is really on point since it looks super bright which is suitable for party ocassions. Since it is a butter lip, it is not a matte type and quiet glossy at first but not after that. It lasts the same, approximately 3 hours without heavy meals or your lips will look lousy thus you need to be super aware for retouch.

YSL: Rouge Pur Couture The Mats (62N104)

This shade looks darker than NYX and still suitable for party ocassions. The texture is super smooth which makes me craving to slide it onto my lips over and over again. Although it feels smooth but somehow it comes a bit matte which makes it lasting longer for approximately 5 hours without heavy meals. Since the shade is total red, then retouch is highly recommended.

So, have you picked your choice? Truthfully, YSL is more pricey than NYX and if you have read the review, you must have figured out where the difference is. The shade might be the same but no products can put their quality in disguise. However, the ball is in your court! What will you consider first? Its quality or its color?

Tell me what you think in the comment box below and share your perspective. Thanks for reading and have a great weekend! 🙂

Fun Trivia // The philosophy behind the name of NYX is the Greek goddess (or personification) of the night, therefore the name is NYX which spelled in Ancient Greek with Νύξ, “night”.
