Beauty Review: PIXY Truly Asian Beauty Makeover !

As refer to my latest post about PIXY Event (click here to see my previous blog post).
I would like to share and review few products I got from PIXY along with their new beautiful lip cream colors. SUPER EXCITED! cause i will be doing a special look using PIXY Product. Let's get over the soft silhouette and feminine look, and turn it into a darker make up style. Since I was so inspired by the latest colors of the lip cream: Edge Plum and Bold Maroon.



What's in the beauty BOX? 

1 PIXY UV Whitening TWO WAY CAKE  Cover Smooth (SPF 30 and PA +++)
2 PIXY Lip cream in Edge Plum and Bold Maroon
3 PIXY Radiant Finish lightening cream (SPF 15)
4 PIXY White Aqua Gel Cream Hydra Active  (SPF 30 and PA +++)
5 PIXY Highlight and Shading Perfecting Face Shape
6 PIXY Eyeshadow (Sparkling Gold 09)
7 PIXY line and shadow
8 PIXY Nail Enamel
9 PIXY Eye and Lip Makeup Remover
10 PIXY Aqua Beauty Protecting Mist
11 PIXY Facial Scrub Dull-off Polish

What I love about PIXY Product is that the product is clinically proven and it suits the south east asian type of skin.  Besides, they use Japanese ingredients to create products that would help us achieve the flawless Japanese looks that we've all been wanting without worrying on spending too much because their product are in super affordable price. FYI, i can not lie but i really do love the lip cream and the two way cake cover smooth.

Let's get started !
Bare faced for before and after.


Don't forget to apply toner before applying the PIXY UV Whitening TWO WAY CAKE Cover Smooth which i got in color (04) Natural Peach. At first, i do not expect that this will cover my entire reddish blemish very well but it turns out - it did! You can refer directly to below photos, half of it was cover by TWC Cover smooth.



with optimum protection from the sun light SPF30 and PA+++, no need to be afraid of doing outdoor activity. The SQUALANE OIL also prevents skin from drying by moisturizing it. When I am in rush, TWC Cover smooth is the perfect soulution to get that instant smooth look and whitening face. so i just simply put toner as my based make up and tap on PIXY TWC Cover Smooth, then you are good to go!


However, if you have a plenty of time to do your makeup - you can put toner, sunblock or foundation first then apply PIXY TWC Cover Smooth to reach that perfect no-more-blemish look. This compact powder is really useful especially when you are sweating and ruining your makeup look (it's like disaster), just tap on your face using PIXY TWC Cover - Gotcha! you will look flawless and smooth up to 10 hours. Well, it actually depends on what activity you are doing.

After whitening and cover my blemish, it's time to create the sharp look ! As you can see, I have a very round face - genetics from my dad lol. Or because i ate too much noodle?!. Thus, I want to look sharp and perfecting my natural face shape using the PIXY Highlight and Shading.



I simply apply on my cheek bone, nose area and a bit on my side forehead. For me, this contour pack does give a good impression on me cause it really help shaping my cheek bone and it is perfect for a beginner like me. I learn my contouring skill using this highlighter and shading. It does quite blend in with my TWC Cover smooth compact powder.




Then, moving on PIXY eye shadow. For your information, i do not use any primer on my eyelid. PIXY did a really good job on this, as you can see - the colors pop out. But you have to apply more on the dark brown colors so the look will be more visible. Basic colors and perfect for casual outing and beginner!


Lastly, PIXY LIP CREAM. For this look, i decided to try BOLD MAROON as it synchronizes with my outfit. As i told you in the very beginning, i am trying to avoid the soft look and create a more darker look or this can also be consider as Harajuku style / Gothic look. What surprises me is... this lip cream really matte but it does not dry up my lip. so i do not have to apply lip balm before using this PIXY Lip cream. The textures of PIXY Lip Cream is creamy, soft, light, very pigmented and give a satin finish on your lips. And its sweet scent! And why i love this lip cream? Because the color stays several hours even after eat and drink , so this is a plus value for lipstick and lip cream collector like me.




Tadaa here is my finish look, and of course i do not forget to use PIXY Aqua Beauty Protecting Mist with triple beauty protection: Antioxidant, Moisturize and long lasting your makeup look up to 8 hours.

So here is my final gothic make up look using PIXY Truly Asian Beauty - Beauty Box.




And of course, after you are done with your activity. Do not forget to remove your makeup before shower or going to bed. So here i am using PIXY Eye and Lip makeup remover. No more doubt, cause it really clear my whole makeup look - you can see it from below photos as a proved.

Then, Do not forget to wash your face using your preferable cleanser. Or you can try using PIXY Facial scrub DULL-OFF POLISH to make sure overcome dull skin by reducing excess oil, remove dead skin cells and make the face look brighter.

To conclude, Unexpectedly PIXY has reach above my expectation. With affordable price, i already can get the special look and for quality is quite good cause it does not irritates my skin hence of my very sensitive skin. My most favorite product from the Beauty Box is PIXY LIP CREAM and PIXY UV WHITENING Two Way Cake Cover Smooth. As you can tell, i really love doing photo shoot outdoor and PIXY TWC Cover Smooth really help me fixed my makeup since i sweat a lot. And PIXY LIP CREAM - the color is very pigmented and it does not fade easily when i ate or drink. So yeah thumbs up for PIXY. Hence, PIXY is an Indonesian manufactured makeup brand. I am proud of being Indonesian and I love Indonesia product.

I would like to thanks PIXY INDONESIA.

Beauty Review: Laneige Water Sleeping Mask

Hi everyone,
As you seen from the title, this will be my very new section of my blog post which is "Beauty Review" ! Now that i have learn more about make up and skincare that suit my skin. I would like to give more review about beauty product and anything that i believe worth to be review about. Since this is my very first time doing a beauty review, i would like apologizes if my content is still missing or do not meet your expectation.

F.y.i: Pardon my bared face and my pajamas and round face of mine.


This time, i would like to introduce the popular Korean brand "Laneige Water Sleeping Mask"! You guys may heard this or even using this mask right now and you guys must know why this beauty mask is checked as one of my favorite beauty product.
What i love about it, it moisturize my skin on night and trust me or not, when i woke up i feel like i have a brighter skin, fresh face, dewy and bouncy - glowing! This mask is used twice a week or once a week, if you have a dry face perhaps you can do it twice a week. This mask does not feel like tightened your face like ordinary mask - as it stated just like applying water and it is very soft and gave cold effect on your skin. 

 


I have been using this product for 2 months, Somehow I have less acne problems and it helps my skin especially when we have less sleep. It keeps my face hydrated ! Once you put on it, your skin will look glowing. I would like to give a thanks to my close friend who recommended me this product and encourage me to try it. Hopefully i will look younger than my actual age !You know who you are Carmen and Jessy ! No regrets at all.

I feel like once you get older, you will need to pamper your skin more. I am also an acne fighter, i have acne scar all over my cheek so pardon my bare face. But still the most important part is you have to be grateful of what you have and confident of how you look with or without make up. Inner beauty still won it all, cause outer beauty can be faded.

Here are some picture to prove, i have less acne problem now and bright skin.


Before

Let's start it with clean face - no make up on just bare it out!

Applying time

Spread gently along the texture of your face using outward strokes. After the product is absorbed into skin, leave it on overnight without washing the face.


After

Tadaaaa - I feel freshed and I am ready for work with this glowy and bright face !


A little selfie, won't hurt right?

Thanks to the sun as the lighting, my acne scar is cover ! but still it feel fresh, soft and brightened !


You can get this awesome mask from:
Laneige counter - available at Sogo & Parkson Department Store.
Online shop (Can you recommend me where to buy? )

Price:
Approximately IDR 400k // $40

It's quite expensive, but it was worth it.

What do you think? Have you ever used this product? Do you share the same experience as me? Let me know by dropping some comment below! Or maybe you guys can recommend me other beauty product that can help reduce my acne and scar.

Thank you for reading. Hope it help you guys to not doubting on this product.

XOXO,
Veronyca Sufry

Valentine Fine Dine

It's that time of the year again, when all your social media accounts are filled with romantic dinner, flower, gift, chocolate, surprises and proposal - all sorts of couple things.
And this year for me, it's a little bit different than others and i would like to share about my simple valentine dinner that blew away my not so high expectation. Even i didn't get a flower :( but i get a chance to have a very special dining cuz its so good.... not a really romantic one or in five star hotels that only provide romantic ambience but not food.
As you know it, my boyfriend is a chef and so he is so picky with our dinner and sucker for flower! (you heard that bii?!). This year, He secretly arranged our exclusive dinner with head chef - Milen of The Thirty Six Cafe (One of the popular & favorite cafe in Medan). It was three courses dinner and not in the menu! The food was amazing and that is why i decided to blog about it and asked my boyfriend to help out with the food review part. As for my part, of course i will share my outfit with special shot.






Main topic of this post "Food review and Valentine Outfit"


"Food Review" by Adrian Hartanto

Three courses dinner - "Appetizer to Main Course to Dessert"


Potato Leek Soup (Homemade Chicken Sausage, Leek Confit, Potato Nest)
Put aside mainstream salad for appetizer, this should get more recognition.  Chicken Sausages is cooked using sous vide method (a modern cooking method where the product is vacuum-packed and poached on stable-controlled water of 60C) and wrapped by its own crispy skin. The flavor, texture, and exact seasoning create an ultimate distinguished flavor. Wait till you spoon the potato-cream soup and few drops of leek confit (slowly cooked leek in oil). So succulent that you might not even recognize each element on the plate.






60 Degree Chicken (Sous Vide Chicken, Mushroom Duxelles, Potato Confit, Carrot Puree, Chicken Jus)
60 Degree chicken may sound dangerous and needs further cooking. No it’s not. It’s just perfect enough to slice and eat. That’s what sous vide is capable of. It’s almost impossible to differentiate between slicing through chicken breast or chicken thigh because of the tenderness similarity. What makes it more incredible is that the juiciness and flavor of the chicken stays inside the chicken, in other words, cooked in its own flavor. You may look at colour complexity on the plate, and feel odds to taste it individually. Don’t worry. Put a little of each on the chicken and BOOM! The unique flavor of mushroom mix (duxelles), crispy and starchy potato, sweet and distinguished texture of carrot puree, and the perfect seasoned and reduced chicken jus, are exactly the way to perfect-ize the chicken.


Banana Bread (Cream Cheese, Chocolate Mousse, Salted Caramel, Raspberry Gelato)
After reading the title, you know nothing could go wrong. Banana bread is amazing enough to eat with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, but imagine if we dive it into better and greater companion. Cream cheese and chocolate mousse are like Romeo and Juliet of dessert, paired it with banana bread and raspberry gelato, are what to die for. It’s warm and cold, sweet and sour, tart and salty at the same time. It feels like they are playing to confuse your taste buds, in the most amusing way.

Address    : Jl. Multatuli No.36, Hamdan, Medan Maimun, Kota Medan, Sumatera Utara 20151, Indonesia
Cooked by: Chef Milen Meccano Ocean


"What I wore?"  by Veronyca

I am wearing my current favorite jumpsuit from Pomelo Fashion! it just simply chic since i am a big fan of one piece outfit. I want to look not so fancy - just simply chic and mature. Hiding all the fats with this comfortable and chic suit. Would like to thanks Pomelo for this suit cause i won their giveaway voucher with my best friend Tiffani Kosasih (Check out her blog). We won it, cause we are currently having a long distance relationship aka my shopping partner back to those university days.

On that valentine's night, i wore it without my floppy hat cause why should i wore it on night and of course without sunnies. But since i recreate this look for this post, i will just add more accessories and different heels. Fun fact - I bought this wedges like about three years ago and it was love at first sight but now it ended up on my shoes rack and still looking flawless. Quality win! Now, i am kinda regret bought a trendy shoes but have a poor quality. From now on - I aim for Quality !
Without further talks, check it out:

 
  





Angle does matter , regardless how i look fat in here. I still love this picture.
