Review of Fenty Beauty Match Stix in Sinamon



Back to my beauty trunk and let's see what I have today!
Review of Fenty Beauty Match Six in Sinamon.

Anybody likes using highlighters?
I do too!

Highlighters have been booming since the last 5 years and nowadays we have more and more choices when it comes to using these beautiful products.

Why I love highlighter

I love using highlighter.

Do you want to know why? 
As the name suggested, highlighter is used to highlight our favorite features on our face.
For sure, we have so many choices of colors and shades that you can choose now, starting from the powder or liquid ones, - probably most popular,- as well as stick and brick.

Aku memang senang menggunakan highlighter yang notabene membantu menampilkan beberapa bagian wajah yang kusuka, seperti pipi, hidung dan dagu. Apalagi highlighter memberi efek tirus dan kurus, seperti yang kuharapkan LOL. Yang pasti, highlighter juga bisa dipakai untuk pengganti eye shadow dan juga lipstik.

One thing for sure, I love using highlighter because it gives great contouring to my face.

Highlighter, as the name suggested, is used to highlight the feature of our face which we want to focus on. In my case, I usually use it on my cheeks, eyes, nose and chin.

Well, we have different feature obviously but usually, as I have read in many sources and tried myself in one of the free make-up courses I took, I used highlighter in 7 different spots on our face. Do you want to know where exactly they are?

Those places, among others, are:
- cheekbones (my favorite place indeed!)
- the tip or bridge of our nose
- cupid's bow 
- forehead center
- beneath the arch of our brows
- above the arch of our brows
- chin center

You see, so many choices for the place on our face where you can apply your favorite highlighter.

The challenge to find the right highlighter for us continues as we will have to see not only the shades but also the way it blends with our skin. 
I have been using several highlighters, including the ones from Anastasia Beverly Hills, Sephora, and Huda Beauty. I will be reviewing them but I will now start with my favourite, Match stix Fenty Beauty  in Sinamon. 

I guess many of you have heard of Fenty Beauty by Rihanna, right?
Rihanna has been a famous singer and this Caribbean beauty (born and raised in Barbados) certainly works on being a leading entrepreneur, including in cosmetic world. And I am one of her fans!

Match Stix Fenty Beauty in Sinamon

So now let's get down to business and here's my review for Match stix Fenty Beauty - Sinamon.

"A magnetized highlighter stick in a longwear, light-as-air formula to highlight, blush, and bronze in 10 colorful shades that let you play".

That's the claim I read from fentibeauty.com about this Match Stix.

Fenty Beauty by Rihanna

What is a match stix by the way?
It's one of the most-wanted products from Fenty Beauty which comes in various shades and different finish, either SHIMMER or MATTE. And as the packaging is formed in a a certain way and coming with magnet, they can stick to one another with different shades.

Function as highlighter, blush, and even eye shadow, I love match six from Fenty Beauty in Sinamon. The version I use is shimmer skinstick and tt's the perfect shade for my skin complexion as well.  




THE SHADE

The shade that I use is called Sinamon.
It's pretty much a shimmer one with copper - based tone and it falls under Cinnamon Bronze group.


the swatch ..

This is how it looks on my skin.
It's pretty, isn't it?
You can see how it shimmers and really highlights my skin.

Moreover, it feels good on my skin too.
No breakout, no itchy feeling, not hotness and IT STAYS!
I have been using this product for my eyes, cheeks, lips, nose, and chin and this is how it looks.

Sepertinya aku harus kursus lagi nih dan diajari bagaimana memanfaatkan highlighter dengan baik dan benar. Ternyata tidak gampang lho menggunakannya tanpa menimbulkan kesan terlalu berlebihan atau bling-bling banget, It's not always that easy to find the right way of doing it.

look tired, but I still love it!

On another occasion, I have used it as well for my cheeks only and I love the look!


I love this highlighter sooo much!

THE INGREDIENTS

The ingredients of Sinamon are, among others: mica, ethylhexyl isononanoate, octyldodecanol, polymethyl methacrylate, sucrose acetate isobutyrate, c20-40 alcohols, paraffin, tribehenin, polyethylene, vp/eicosene copolymer, vp/hexadecene copolymer, diisostearyl malate, cera microcristallina/microcrystalline wax/cire microcristalline, caprylyl glycol, phenoxyethanol, tocopheryl acetate, hexylene glycol, tocopherol, isostearyl alcohol, ascorbyl palmitate, malic acid, and calcium sodium borosilicate.

So far I found it all safe.


THE PACKAGING

The packaging is lovely. It's like a sturdy plastic container in choco milk color. 
Fenty Beauty is written in silver font in one of the side and the name of the shade is written underneath.  It looks neat.
You have to roll it up to get the highlighter out. 

THE PRICE

The price of this collection is USD 25 before taxes (depending on where you buy it, but in NYC it becomes around USD 31 after the VAT) and I bought it in Sephora Times Square New York City. As always, it's always been my favorite spot!

Repurchase? Yes, yes, yes... And I gues I might try and explore other shades.
Sepertinya aku tertarik untuk mencoba shades yang matte dan melihat hasilnya di kulitku.

So, how do you like it? 
Have you tried other Fenty products?
Do you think you will like the shimmer or the matte finishing?
Do you have your favorite collection when it comes to highlighter?
Will you buy this one?

Beauty - Kylie Matte Lipstick and Lipliner in Kourt K Lipkit

Disclaimer: this post is purely my own review and not in any ways is compensated by any companies or agencies. I acquire the product myself and happily write my personal experience.



Lipstick, lipstick, lipstick.
Bring me one and I'll get more :).

I don't remember exactly when I start developing a new hobby of trying ,- and eventually buying and collecting,- lipsticks. 

Any new shades and formulas are warmly welcomed and I have to admit that I am thrilled to try new variants of lipstick,- or lipstain, lipkit, lipgloss, liptint and whatever names they come with,- that you can easily find in YouTube, Snapchat and Instagram.

This time, I have Kylie Matte Lipstick and Lipliner in Kourt - drum rolls, please ;p,- 




Ada yang suka Kylie Matte lipkit?
Aku #tunjuktanganyangtinggi.
Dengan segala kelucuannya dan kekiniannya, Kylie Matte Lipstick and Lipliner, atau lipkit, memang sempat heboh di Indonesia. Eh, masih ngga sih? 
Denger-denger dari temen dan saudara di tanah air, harganya juga sempat fantastis ya..hampir menembus 1 juta Rupiah untuk warna atau koleksi tertentu.

Have you tried this?

Kylie lipstick has been one of the most wanted collections. Well, at least at certain point of time when most of the collections were sold out.
Being released less than a year a go, there are times when some favorite colors are out of stock or limited edition collections are so difficult to get. I literally set an alarm when the new shades are released and focus on getting those lipsticks online. I know it sounds crazy but sometimes,  

Inget banget waktu lipstik ini awal-awal baru keluar, heboh bangeeet sekantor kalau mau pesan online. Soalnya, walaupun harga lipkit ataupun lipstick dan lipglossnya tidak terlalu mahal, tapi ongkos kirimnya lumayan ngegetok, sekitar $9 atau Rp 130.000,- sendiri. Dan lipstick Kylie hanya dijual lewat online, at least for NYC. Kalau hanya beli satu atau dua aja rugi kan, hehehe. Jadi tidak jarang saya shout out di group WA ladies di kantor untuk  mengumpulkan siapa saja yang akan pesan dan biasanya memang rame :). Kalau sekarang, setiap belanja di atas $40, biaya pengirimannya gratis. Jadi again, enakan belanja rame-rame :).


My Kourt K Lip kit.

Jadi, seperti apa sih rasanya pakai lipstik yang satu ini?
I know many of you have used it as well and here's a little review from me.

THE ARTIST BEHIND THE LIPSTICK


Oke...kita mulai dari Neng Kylie Jenner.

Rasanya kalau mau tau cerita lengkap mengenai kehidupannya plus her famous Kardashian Family (plus sang 'ayah' yang tidak kalah kontroversial, Bruce Jenner..or, udah jadi 'ibu kedua', Catlyn Jenner :)), you can just easily Google it.
For sure, she loves make-up, successfully released her first line of lipkit  and there she is now, developing all those colorful collection to her preferences ranging from lipstick, eye shadow, eye liner and more. 

THE KIT AND THE PRICE


The lipkit contains of 1 (one)  Matte Liquid Lipstick (approximately 0.11 fl oz./oz. liq / 3.25 ml) and 1 Pencil Lip Liner (net wt./ poids net  .03 oz/ 1.0g), as mentioned in the website, kyliecosmetics.com and the box.

The price for the lipkit varies from $29 - $30 (for new colors in holiday boxes), before shipping. As I said, the shipping is free if you purchase $40 or more for domestic shipping, and $60 for international shipping. Before that, shipping was $8.90, the same price you have to pay if you shop less than $40.

Kourt K and mini me :)

Beside the matte liquid lipstick, the lipkit comes with lipliner with the same shade as well.
It's the standard one, around 4.5 inch and weight 1 gr.

The lipliner
THE SHADE

Basically, Kylie's collection comes in matte lipkits, matte singles/lipsticks, lipglosses and metals


There are so many shades available, particularly since Kylie released more new colors during the holiday seasons.



Originally, it was coming in Kourt K, Posie K, Koko, Candy K, 22, Dolce K, and Mary Jo. But now, we have more and more shades, ranging from Leo (another favorite shade of mine!), Dirty Peach to Maliboo, from Merry to Vixen. The complete series can be check on her website.



But, as purple is my forever favorite color (as Obi said bluntly :)), then Kourt K is one of my first Kylie collection I own. I also love (and have) Posie K, Leo, Merry, Vixen, Dead of the Knight and Reign. I know ...I know, it's a lot >_<.





THE INGREDIENTS


As I can read in the box, the lipstick is made of mixture of Isododecane, Nylon-12, Diisopropyl dimer dilinoleate, trimetylsiloxysilicate, polypropylsilsesquioxane, silica, disteardimonium hectorite, flavor, propylene carbonate, syntetic flourphlogopite, tin oxide, and more :). It was a long list indeed and frankly I don't really understand what they are exactly. For sure it's made in USA.


The ingredients

THE SWATCH


Here's how it looks on my complexion. 


the lipstick and the lipliner

And this is when I put it on my lips, but this one without the lipliner.

I don't really feel the need to use one, it's already bold.



Dilarang protes ya kenapa semua ungu :). Dan abaikan foto kami yang seadanya pakai hape tercintah.

THE PERKS


I love it for its true bold color and 'matteness.' Kourt K is in deep purple, my favorite color.
I know it does not always look good on others but it looks fine to me.

The brush is also good, perfect size and help us steadily apply the lipstick on our lips.


The lipstick dries quickly so it won't be messy.

The lipsticks and other cosmetics collections are not tested on animals and the shades are vegan as well.

the brush

THE NO-NO

Perhaps, because the lipstick is meant to be super matte and long lasting, it feels very powdery and tend to dry your lips. Therefore, whenever I have used this lipstick, I will directly put some gloss on and free my lips from other lipsticks as well. During winter it's more problematic for me as the weather is colder and dryer, but other than that it's manageable. Karena teksturnya yang powdery, maka lipstik ini memang bikin bibir kering. Jangan lupa pakai primer or lipgloss sesudahnya supaya bibir tidak menderita.

As it's the ultra and extremely long wearing lipstick, the color stays and sometimes it stays too long >_<. I really have to clean it thoroughly using my face and lip cleaner, with moisturizing oil on it.  Karena tahan lama, membersihkan bibirnya harus dengan seksama ya dan dalam tempo sesingkat-singkatnya.

And do not swipe it twice because it will be blotching. So better make sure that you fill the lip and swipe the brush steadily. Lipliner will be very helpful if you're not accustomed to it. 
Ini suka jadi masalah banget deh...karena warnanya yang memang tahan lama, kalau kita pakai lipstiknya agak salah or ngg pas, menghapusnya lumayan perlu perjuangan. Dan biasanya berbekas :(. Apalagi saya yang sering dan hobi banget dandan di mobil hehehe. Kalau begini, lipliner akan sangat membantu dan siap-siap bedak lagi deh untuk menyamarkan 'kelebihan' lipstik di pinggir bibir.

Well, all in all, I give the score 7.5 out of 10 :).  I still like this one and now I'm venturing more, newer shades. 
Mind if I'm coming back with more shades? 
What do you think about this matte liquid lipstick and li liner?
Ditunggu postingan berikutnya ya. 




Beauty - Meet Kendall Jenner, the New Face of Estee Lauder

The freshest face of Estee Lauder for Modern Muse, Le Rogue 

smileeee :)

It was indeed my lucky day.
I met my lovely friends, went to Macy's, got to my favorite corner, Estee Lauder and found out that Kendall Jenner was in town. Well, in fact.. She was in Macy's, to promote the newest line in Estee Lauder's perfume, Modern Muse, Le Rogue.

And long story short, I bought the perfume, got one of the 120 special passes given to the Estee Lauder esteemed clients, and voilaaa...

wanna meet Kendall?

I personally have been an avid lover of Estee Lauder's products. And loving them ;). At least I have its compact powder, Kendall Jenner series' lipstick, Little Black Liner and the soft kohl pencil. 

some of my favorite lines :)

I have been a big fan particularly as Estee Lauder is one fo the companies fully supporting the Breast Cancer Awareness Raising campaign :). I can't wait to see what they have for the Pinktober and this year's breast cancer awareness raising campaign :). 
Way to go, Estee :)
photo is taken from http://www.bcrfcure.org/partners/corporate/estee-lauder-companies

The event was taking place at the Macy's, on the 2nd floor. 
At the Herald Square Cafe to be exact.

Herald Square Cafe

cheers...
And we were served rasberry-infused water. Supeeer yum and healthy as well. 

lining uuuup :)

So after the lining up, we took the picture, got the perfume bottle signed by her, smiled to the official cameraman from Macy's (we are not allowed to use our own camera and that's why I took picture of my official photo :)), and had a little chitchat with her ;). 
Kendall was very friendly and nice indeed..

Super excited, super happy..

I proudly wore my fuschia-and-teal Lombok tenun jacket that day, adorned with my favorite shade of True Liar from Kendall Jenner's shades lipstick from Estee Lauder.

Well, all in all.. Again, it was my lucky day..
Have you met somenone famous in a special event like that? ;)


(Bukan) Beauty Blogger

Recently, I was tidying up my closet as well as my office.
Well summer is almost gone and I'm thinking of redecorating my living room as well as my office. Fall is coming soon and I got some new shades and accent here :).

But you know what I found?


I found beauty products here and there...


Yang ada aku menemukan make-up dan  produk kecantikan.
Di mana manaaaaa ;p

some of the lipstick I found at home...and I still have some at the office :))

In my closet..
In my bathroom..
In the drawers..
In my bedroom...
In my office...
In my bags...

They are literally everywhere :).


Suami saya sampai nyeletuk bercanda begini "kamu punya berapa banyak bibir sih sampai lipstiknya lebih banyak dari warna crayon Bo et Obi?". 
Dan saya pun hanya bisa nyengir lebar :). 
Karena frankly speaking, saya sendiri tidak tahu kenapa saya bisa punya begitu banyak produk kecantikan. 

Apakah karena saya perempuan? because I'm a woman?
Apakah karena saya suka dandan? because I love make ups?
Apakah karena saya doyan belanja? because I love shopping?
Atau..apakah karena saya termakan iklan? because I was lurred by the ads and promotion? 
Hmmmmm..

I guess the answers to those questions are YES, YES, YES :)


From lipsticks to blush, palletes of eye shadows to loose and compact powder,

make-up removers to skin care :).


this is what happened when we have triple points program at sephora :)

Mostly lipsticks, with a wide range of purple shades as my favorite..

Wolvesmouth by Kat von D


Kendal Jenner Series by Estee Lauder, True Liar

Let alone my monthly-box :)
With monthly surprises as well that I got from birchbox ..


Not to mention, those I got some for free as well :-)
For prizes for example..



Or from my Look Good Feel Better program as the breast cancer survivor



And of course, from GWP or Gift with Purchase, where you usually get free gifts for buying certain amount of products.




Di sini niiih godaannya ;).
Saya sering banget beli produk kecantikan karena tertarik dengan hadiahnya hahahaha. So typical ;).
Tapi saya ngga mau rugi juga.. Biasanya produk yang dibeli selalu yang favorit atau pasti terpakai, misalnya lipstik atau parfum. Jadi Kalau tidak langsung dipakai, biasanya saya simpan untuk persediaan atau kado.





But still, I guess I got too much of them already ;).
Oh my....


Tapi seperti yang saya bilang, saya memang suka dandan ;).
Walaupun jauuuh dari jago.
Saya belum bisa dandan canggih seperti banyak temen-temen beauty blogger yang fotonya luar biasaaa..
Manglingin ;).
I sometimes couldn't help but wondering how they can beautifully tranform themselves like that :). 
Plus how much time needed (and practice as well, obviously), to do it neatly.


Saya paling pol dandan menggunakan moisturizer, bedak, lipstik, dan eyeliners.
Kalau lagi rajin, pakai eye shadow plus blush on.
Those are my favorites.
No wonder most of my collections (huh..shall I call it collection now) consist of those basic ones. But as I said, I have a wide range of collections thanks to my crush on colors :).



Dan biasanya saya dandan sambil 'lari-lari'.
Ya sambil masak pagi-pagi sebelum berangkat ke kantor, sambil nyolong-nyolong online or BW pagi-pagi, atau di mobil dan di subway on the way to the office ;). 
With tight schedule I have and series of meetings I have to go through, I have to learn to do it speedily.

I also love matching my outfits with accesories and lipstick.
It's always fuuuun to mix and match them. 

Tidak jarang saya beli kosmetik karena ingin memadankannya dengan aksesoris atau wastra nusantara kesayangan saya yang warna-warni ituuu :).
Gawat iniiii..
Karena koleksi aksesoris dan wastra saya biasanya selalu bertambah ;).



Shall I call myself make-up lovers or make up junkie?
Or simply blogger who loves beauty products?
Pastinya bukan beauty blogger ;).
But whatever it is, I do enjoy it.

Saya bukan bermaksud pamer koleksi make-up sayaaa yaaa, tapi urusan perempuan dan dandan ini benar-benar menggelitik.
Why?
Kenapa perempuan harus dandan?
Atau suka dandan?
Atau hobi dandan?

Was is because we like to do it?
Or was it because we have to do it?
Was it because we feel pretty after putting some make-up on?
Or was it just to support the inner beauty we have?

Apakah perempuan harus dandan?
What happen if we don't do it?
Bagaimana kalau kita tidak dandan?
Apakah lantas kita menjadi tidak percaya diri? Atau ada yang kurang lengkap?

Saya ingat kalau sempat ada celetukan di media sosial pantang keluar jika belum pasang alis. 
Atau pakai lipstik.
Or even pasang bulu mata palsu ;).

Menarik yaaaa ...

For me, it's a labyrinth of estrogens, socio-cultural values, self-esteem, personal branding, creativity and fun!

Seruuu ajaaa..
Bisa jadi topik disertasi doktoral yang oke bangeet ini ;).




Well, it's obvious now that I do love make-up and most of the time, can't help grabbing them at my favorite store Sephora.com and  many others as well. Some online sales and flash sale are alwaaays sucessfully luring me in ;). 




Perhaps, later.. I might try to review some of those products I got ;).
I guess I will because I loveeee all those products I use.

And become a beauty blogger?
Why not ;)...
