My Beauty Talk Show at Centro Beauty Bash 2016

As you can see from my social media, I just had my talk show two weeks ago at Centro Beauty Bash Event which is held at December, 11th, 2016 at Discovery Shopping Mall, Bali. It is an honor for me to become a speaker in Beauty Talk Show at Centro Beauty Bash.

Centro is known as a Department Store who always spoil their customers, which is why they held this event twice a year. Centro Beauty Bash has a lot of to offer such as Exclusive Disc. up to 70% on their Cosmetic and Fragrance products, Buy 1 Get 1 Free promo, free shopping voucher and many more. It's like the biggest event for all the shopaholic out there who's waiting to shop in discounted price! It's so crowded that day, even the parking area was closed due to overload, make sure you don't miss it next time, guys!

There's also Live Music, Makeup Demo, Shopping Rally and many more. I'm going to share the summary about my talk show, because if I wrote the full transcript here (with 20 minutes video duration) then its gonna be a longggg page lol. 

1. We're in the end of 2016 to 2017, of course there will be some changes in beauty trend, so what do you think the colors that's going to hype in 2017?

The colors that are going to hype in 2017 will not very much different from 2016 such as colors like smokey eye still in but it will tend to The Smudgy Eye look, clean skin (which is "no makeup look), glitter and shimmer, unexpected colors like yellow, lilac will dominate in 2017, and natural colors still in (of course, because natural is versatile look). 

For reference product for natural trend look, NYX Lip Lingerie, along with NYX Eyebrow Cake and NYX Mosaic Powder is very suitable for the natural look because of finish result is smooth and not overdone.

2. How long have you been use social media/blog to share beauty tips or information?

I've been use social media for a long time (around 5 years), but I begin (really focus and commit) to share beauty tips/ information around 1,5 years. 

3. Why you choose to share beauty tips on social media?

As we all know, we live in a digital era, where everyone have smartphone, and with smartphone, it's so easy and fast to get any information, so I thought why not sharing about things that I have passion here? For example, me personally, If I want to buy something, I always research the product review to find out more details about whether the product is good or not, whether it match my skin or not, something like that. So, I think it's a great idea to share something that we love and hopefully people will find my article useful. 

4. Who is your beauty inspiration?

Michelle Phan. She's a big inspiration, and a pioneer in beauty social media, she's the one who started all this youtube makeup tutorial thing (cmiiw). She's an amazing person, very humble and very inspirational.

5. If you can choose, what is your 5 must have items beauty product?

Foundation (BB Cushion), Mascara, Lipstick, Eyeliner, and Contour Stick.

6. Can you share us some tips so we won't buy the wrong beauty product or tools?

Just like I said before, always research before buy the product if it's going to suitable for your skin or not. For example, if you have oily skin, it's better if you find something that will have matte finish to balance the result. And if you have sensitive skin just like me, it's better to find something "friendly" to your skin.

7. The last thing you want to say for people who wants to be a beauty blogger out there?

Be confident and be yourself! 

So, what do you think about this event and the talk show? Do you like an annual event with big sale like Centro Beauty Bash?

Christmas is coming in just a few days! And I'm super excited for the most wonderful time of the year <3 I always celebrate Christmas with my family, just simple dinner like that, and go to church. How's your holiday everyone? Have you planned your New Year's celebration as well?

This is the last piece from TOBI x Tabitha Budiman collaboration in 2016. Its a gorgeous dress in mauve or pale purple color. It's actually the same bodycon dress from the previous post :D TOBI gave me another one in different color, and I'm so happy because, you know how much I love bodycon dress! Hopefully, we'll have another collaboration in 2017 ;) As you can see, this time I style it differently, with my hair tied-up, white lace choker, and white heels. I think this look is more feminine and formal than the previous style.

So, what do you think about this look?

 I've been recently back to the gym, and feel really motivated to get healthier and curvier body. One of the things that motivated me is bodycon dress. Bodycon dress is always been my favorite thing, so the first time I saw Theon Off Shoulder Bodycon Dress from TOBI, I instantly fell in love with it. Without fit body, I won't feel confident wearing this kind of dress, so I train and lift harder. Of course, this is still far from my target, I hope I will achieve my body goals next year. 

If you're following me on my social media, you already knew that few days ago, I have my first Beauty Talkshow at Centro Beauty Bash event, will blog about it soon ;)  So, here's the quick post about what I wore that day,

So, what do you think about this look? Have you made your new year's resolution?

Lace and Velvet

I can't believe it's almost the end of 2016, so much has going on this year, there's a lot of struggle and new experience, but overall (thanks God!) mostly are good things. Have you made your new resolution for 2017? I always make resolution every year. It's good to motivate us to do better and become a better version of ourselves.

Anyway as I promised, here's another look from TOBI Collaboration x Tabitha Budiman. This time, I chose this Pensively Staring At You Crop Top in black, I paired it with velvet button-front skirt, vintage hat and choker to finish the look. It's always summer here in Bali, so I often wear something casual like this. Maybe, someday when my daughter has grown up, I will go somewhere with winter season ;) See you on social media!

NEW 2016 IOPE Air Cushion Moisture Lasting N21 VS W21 Review

Hi, everyone! How's your day? It's been a while since the last time I'm doing a product review. This time I'm going to review NEW 2016 IOPE Air Cushion. I've been using this product for 2 years, and I really am satisfied with the result. I tried other BB Cushions, but always ends up disappointed and back to IOPE (this is not a sponsored post, it's truly my honest opinion). IOPE is a brand of Amore Pacific, one of the most best-seller air cushions in Korea, even 1 product sold every 4 seconds in 2014, over 20 Million units sold in 2015, and many more of their achievements. 

You know how I always said that my skin is sensitive so I always be careful everytime I want to buy a product especially this is the face base. That's why I don't mind spending more for this product, it's quite pricey compared to other brands. But, it's worth it anyway :)

So, why suddenly I decide to share about this? Because, IOPE has launched their 4th generation cushions and they launch so many shades. There's some new changes in shade and few months ago, it's so hard to find a review about this. So, I decide I will share this so you guys who wants to buy this product won't be confused like I did. I will also compare the old and new IOPE Air Cushions. The new IOPE Air Cushion has four different type/finish: 
Natural Glow (Grey case), Moisture Lasting (Blue case), Matte (Silver case) and Intense Cover (Rose Gold). I choose the moisture lasting finish in shade W21.

 The packaging is still the same from the box, but the new case is really different from the old one. It's shorter, lighter and smaller. So, the new refills will not fit into the old case, you have to buy the new one. I don't mind, because mine almost broken after 2 years of usage. 

The Honeycomb Sponge
This is one of the benefits of the new one, it absorbs the liquid foundation really well, I just prefer if it's bigger like the old one.

IOPE Air Cushion Old vs New

The Type and Shades
The new IOPE Air Cushion has four different type/finish: 
  • Natural Glow (Grey case) for naturally radiant, healthy and bright skin
  • Moisture Lasting (Blue case) for more dewy and moisture look
  • Intense Cover (Rose Gold) for more coverage blemishes
  • Matte Long-wear (Silver case) for matte finish for long hours

The new shades have three tone category: Cool, Warm and Natural. There are total five different shades : C13, N21, W21, N23, W23 (you can see from the above picture). I used to wear the N21 shade (the old IOPE), but when I bought the new one, it's lighter and pinkish on my face. The N21 is different from the old one on my skin, I thought it's because I'm getting tanner recently, but I try my old N21 still blended well on my skin. So I did some research so I won't buy the wrong one again. Thank God, finally I found the right shade for me which is W21. 


 I know what you're thinking, you probably said on the swatch on my hand, the W21 is too dark. Here's the thing, this is just for reference, but if you want true match on your skin, it's best if you try/swatch on your face. So, you will get the right shade, the right shade will blend well with the color on your skin. I prefer W21, because it has more yellow tone than pink. 

The Formula

Because this is Moisture Lasting, it's definitely more dewy on my face, which is good for me who always in the indoor room with air conditioner. But, when you're on the outside with the heat, it will probably a bit oily (I live in tropical island). At the end, it depends on your skin type. My skin is a combination of oily-dry skin type. I think this finish works really well for me. 

Final Opinion


  • Great formula
  • Natural coverage / result
  • Fine pigments
  • Natural dewy finish
  • Smells nice (it's important!lol)
  • Great honeycomb sponge
  • SPF50+/ PA+++


  • Pricey
  • Hard to find especially W21 shade, this one I got it from a friend who's on holiday in Korea


IOPE once again, impressed me with their Air Cushion, I will definitely keep buying this, although the cushion price is 42,000 KRW. It still the best cushion for me, although I think if the case is bigger it will be perfect ^^

Here's my selfie with IOPE Air Cushion only

So, what do you think about this air cushion? What is your favorite BB Cushion? Let me know what you think
