Review: Jordana fabuliner in black & Nyx eye pencil in gold

Third post! Yay!

Recently i just received new beauty supplies that i purchased from an online shop based in indonesia >> , do check their website and instagram @tokomakeup, they open USA drugstore preorder every month with awesome price.

First row: jordana fabuliner shade black (Rp. 50000)
2nd row: nyx eyepencil shade gold (Rp. 42000)

Jordana Fabuliner Liquid Eyeliner
The product come in a pen-like/slim marker-like form with felt tip. Easy to use too, i find no difficulty to draw even a thin line. It's actually very similar to Nyx Super Skinny eye Marker that I used before. Here's the swatch comparison. 
    1st row: nyx skinny eye marker
    2nd row: Jordana fabuliner
   - easy to use, glide on smoothly
   - cheap! Compare to the nyx one
   - slim packaging, easy to travel with
   - odorless

   - not waterproof :( not smudge proof (without primer)
   - a little runny compare to nyx eyeliner marker. So use it with a light hand
   - only stays for approx 3 hours without eye primer, maybe less if you have super oily eyelids

Overall: 3/5, will buy it again? Probably, just for everyday use.

Nyx eye/eyebrow pencil in Gold
I definetely can't wear this eyelinerpencil. No good color pay off, but it might work on someone with lighter complexion or people with light eyelid. I have pretty dark eyelid that the color doesnt even show up :( , the shade is pretty though.
    Left :with UD primer potion
    Right : no primer

review: Hada Labo Gokyujun Ultimate Mosturizing

So, I've been wanting to try this skincare product since ages ago finally this chance has arrived hihi..

To be honest i've been eyeing this japan product almost  everytime i go the the local supermarket, but, as always, i hesitate.  this morning, i found out that i ran out of  my usual face wash (cetaphil) and then decided to make a quick trip to the nearest supermarket. Then i saw this babies. They come in full size product retail from Rp. 60000ish for a bottle of 100ml. aaaand, a sample set consist of 3 items: face wash, lotion (which apparently working as face toner) and mosturizer milk. The price for this set is Rp. 22000 (cheapy right?) The brand actually has 3 type, antiageing, whitening and moisturizing. I chose the moisturizing since i don't wanna use any product with whitening effect and well I don't need the antiageing one just yet. this moisturizing set is intended for people with dry to normal skin ( i have combination skin, but i find it okay to use this type)

This hada labo set contains hyaluronic acids that help to give optimal moisture.
The milk and lotion, clearly have watery consistency, that i actually like because it's easier to use. the milk one tend to get sticky at first, then gets soft after a minute or two. the face wash is great too, my face felt clean after i use it and it gives of somehow a firm feeling.

- odorless
- cheap!
- cleanse and moisturize well
- irritant free

- none
