utoTIA 2014 Beauty Awards - Makeup




MAKEUP


Foundation

Liquid Foundation

Shu Uemura The Lightbulb Foundation



This foundation is so good that I ended up buying another one. I love how it gives very natural finish and feels lightweight on my skin. What's more is that despite of the natural finish and lightweight texture, it does cover my skin imperfections like acne, acne scars, and dark spots.

And yes, it comes with the lightbulb sponge which is a perfect match for the foundation. Though I hope that the sponge can come in other (preferably dark) color.

Read my quick review of Shu Uemura The Lightbulb Foundation here.

Nominees:
  1. Lancome Mat Miracle 24H Foundation
  2. YSL Touche Eclat Foundation

Powder Foundation

Covermark Moisture Veil LX



I always hate powder foundation because it usually gives me cakey face. And I'm not a fan of matte finish. But I quickly said goodbye to those negativity towards powder foundation after I found this Covermark Moisture Veil LX.


I'm not lying, this powder foundation is the best. Though it comes in powder texture, it doesn't leave your face mat. By the time you're wearing it, it won't get your face damn oily just like a frog. It has sophisticated technology that can transform sebum into radiance. WOW?

Nominees:
  1. Make Up For Ever Pro Finish
  2. Shu Uemura The Lightbulb UV Compact


BB Cream

Lioele Triple the Solution BB Cream




This BB Cream is pretty popular already. One vlogger; Elaine Mokk, even cover up her cysts acne with this BB Cream. And I have to admit that this BB Cream has high coverage which can be as high as foundation.

The texture is very creamy, so sometimes I find it's a bit hard to blend. In order to overcome that, usually I mix this BB Cream with CC Cream or Hyaluronic Acid serum. 

For high coverage, use your finger, but for more subtle look, I usually use HD foundation brush.

And it lasts the whole day (approx. 8 hours). Usually even BB Cream and foundation I use only lasts 5 hours and then I have to blot or re-apply.

Nominees:
  1. Sarange Triple Crown BB SPF 33/PA+++
  2. Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Cream


Cushion Foundation

IOPE Air Cushion XP Cover


Some says this is one of the pioneers of cushion makeup, so I gave it a try. The result? Well, it's doesn't give high coverage, but it's just the right amount of coverage for day-to-day makeup. Also it has nice scent and the cushion lasts longer than other cushion makeup that I have.

Nominees:

  1. Elisa Coy Always Nudy Cushion
  2. Etude House Almighty Any Cushion SPF 50+/PA+++


Loose Powder

Menard Tsukika Face Powder




This loose powder is so nice! It's translucent and the puff wins my heart :3 It's damn soft and fluffy. Anyway, it has subtle shimmers so if you're not a fan of that better not buying, but if you like glowing effect then it's a yes! As for me as I don't like matte face, I love this powder since it gives me glowing effect even after powder!

Nominees:
None, cause this is the first loose powder that I love to use daily.


Pressed Powder

Maybelline White Superfresh



Exceeding my expectation, this affordable compact powder has nice quality! You can find this easily in many drugstores, supermarkets, and mini markets nearby.

Promising 12-hour bright matte look and fresh feel, this product (even though it doesn't exactly lasts 12-hour) deliver nice oil control and has sun protection feature inside.

Complete with SPF 34 PA+++, this product is worth your try even when you're on budget.

Read about Maybelline White Superfresh here.

Nominees:
None, cause I don't like pressed powder.

Concealer

L'Oreal Paris New True Match Super-Blendable Concealer


The reason why I choose this concealer as a winner is not only that it does concealing work good, but also because of the price's wise.

Other nominees are extremely good in concealing as well, but the price might be too steep. If I can get both good quality and affordable price, why not?

Anyway, I love the liquid texture compared to other 2 nominees (too creamy) and it's good to cover both blemishes and dark circles. The packaging is also similar to lip product, it's small so make it easy to be carried everywhere.

Nominees:

  1. YSL Touche Eclat
  2. Shiseido The Makeup Concealer

Eyeshadow

bo.ho Eyeshadow Pearly Carotte



Read my review of bo.ho eyeshadow pearly here.

Nominees:

  1. Lancome Hypnose Eye Palette
  2. Shu Uemura Silk Cushion Eyeshadow

Eyeliner

Creerbeauty Love Darling Lum Eyeliner


I discovered this eyeliner after reading @cosme book given by my boss. So @cosme is a review website (similar to makeupalley) in Japan. So they rank beauty products and this was the number 1 eyeliner. 

The packaging is damn kawaii! It's pink with silver lining mimicking tiger print. So this is eyeliner product of Love Darling line featuring Lum, an anime character from Rumiko Takahashi sensei (famous for Ranma 1/2).

I love the manga and also this eyeliner makes me love it as well. It's liquid eyeliner, so perfect for on the go. And the tip is soft and thin, which make it easy to create wing eyeliner.

Unfortunately the color payoff is not jet-black, so you have to reapply to get the jet black result. But, it doesn't smudge at all and fast drying! So I choose this as no. 1!

Nominees:

  1. CLIO Killer Black Liquid Eyeliner
  2. KATE Super Sharp Liner S


Mascara

Bourjois Twist Up the Volume Mascara



This mascara has it all! It boost the lash volume and also lengthen it in one product. All you have to do is to twist the cap and voila! it changes the brush!

I've tried this myself and also to others and yes you can get that spider lashes like Kardashian sisters do!

What's more? It's not hard to be removed! 

Nominees:
  1. Majolica Majorca Lash Expander Edge Meister
  2. Lancome Hypnose Star


Eyebrow

MAKEOVER Eyebrow Pencil Brown to Earth



This local product hooked me up with this amazing eyebrow pencil. It has nice brown color which is very natural for me and suits most of Indonesians as well. The color is not reddish nor too light or dark so everyone can wear this!

Nominees:
  1. KATE Designing Eyebrow EX-5
  2. Sarange Jaljinae What's Up? Automatic Pencil


Lipstick

L'Oreal Paris Color Riche Lipstick Moist Matte R518 Flaming Kiss



This red lipstick has nice color payoff, just the amount of perfect red! It's not too bright, nor too dark. It's just right and it fits my skin tone.

I love to smudge it to make it look like lip stain though.

It's matte but doesn't make my lips dry or chapped.

Nominees:

  1. Maybelline Colorshow Lipstick 201 Downton Red
  2. Maybelline Color Sensational Mat 2

Lip Color (Other than Lipstick)

Etude House Color Lips Fit #RD30 Perfect Fit Red


Nice red (with orange-ish) color. Perfect for both lips and cheek (on the go).

Nominees:

  1. YSL Vernis A Levres 11


Lip Gloss

iSkin Lipaddict 205 Sexy Seductress


Lipgloss and lip care in one! It claims to give filler injection effect to our lips! When I tried this, it's actually gave instant boost to my lips. It also has cooling effect which is a bit of strange at first but nice a few minutes after.

Apply this as many times as possible as it also acts as lip care.

Nominees:
  1. Max Factor X 55 Dazzling Fuchsia

Cheek

Candy Doll Cheek Color Strawberry Pink


Perfect pink! It's perfect for fair and ivory skin like mine and it's so fresh! Moreover, it has no shimmer which I really really love.
