beauty by its own (not)
hi guys, this is my very first review on beauty products
this may seem very odd, i know, but i just learned that beauty can be very fun!
i wasn't a fan of eye liner nor anything that smells chemical to start with, but thanks to InStyle Magazine who allows me to work as a beauty reporter, i was introduced into a whole new world that is just as great as fashion-everse ;)
today i'm just going to review my second most favourite beauty product after lipstick;
nail polish! but instead of comparing these famous brands on their "normal" colour, i chose their special editions and did a little comparison. enjoy!
Pink of Hearts edition; 15 ml (each); got 'em for free so i didn't exactly know how much does it cost. maybe around Rp 140-180.000? roughly said.
well, who doesn't know OPI? it's like the hip-est nail polish brand in Indonesia. i believe that a good reputation is earned because of its high maintained quality and OPI did show the truth.
now, i'll be reviewing on its Pink of Hearts edition, but i'll specifically try on its glitter polish.
i honestly am quite disappointed with this one. the pinkish nude base on this colour doesn't stand out that much. also, even though i applied the polish twice, it still didn't spread evenly. i guess, because of the different size of its glitters, they look a bit, um, weird?
SUGAR COAT - 500 Razzle-berry; 11.8 ml; Rp. 100.000; bought in Watson
there used to be Sally Hansen in Indonesia, but it seems like the old franchisee didn't promote their nail-polish that spectacular. i heard they were prioritising its wax? have you guys used it?
it's just a pity that the number one most selling nail brand in USA can't satisfy their thirsty fans in Indonesia. that's why they're back with a refreshing start & of course, with lots of colours & variety to offer. i came to its first re-launching and they do have beautiful colours to play with.
if OPI is known with its top-notch shatter overcoat, Sally Hansen is competing with another coat trend; sugar coat & fuzzy coat.
so i decided to give 'em a try and let's see what will they look like
i honestly love the sugary effect on the nail. it makes me want to lick it so badly! (am i hungry that much?)
i also like how the colour is so thick that it gives a matte look that i'm currently digging.
however, you can't really see the sugar details unless it's under a spotlight or a very bright flash. without the light, it just looks like a untidy polish with a rough surface.
well, i still love it though! the colour is just too cute to resist :)
i would also recommend you to not choose yellow sugar coat. it looks ugly, i've seen it! i don't really know about the rest, but i only would re-buy this colour & the red one.
FUZZY COAT - 500 Fuzz-sea; 9.17ml; Rp. 100.000; bought in Watson
i instantly fell in love with the packaging. it looks so fluffy and hug-able. unfortunately, it doesn't look as good in reality.
the first picture is just the fuzzy on its own, while the second one is used on top of a Sally Hansen's red nail polish. i believe it would look much better if i put a different colour on the second nail, it was just a random trial so sorry about that :p
if you're interested to give fuzzy coat a try, i would suggest you to use this item solely for a top coat. i don't think it looks pretty if you use it alone.
212 - Gold Diamond; 5 ml; Rp 50.000; bought in Watson
if the above two brands are made in USA, this little fella is just a strange foreigner. comes with a smaller packaging (compare to those two), it sparkles with its own way far from Switzerland. as i am not a nail expert and used to believe that nail polish brand is only Revlon, it didn't come to my attention that this brand is worth to consider.
this is by far my most favourite nail polish. it's just an ordinary glitter i assume, but its thickness is just right. the gold colour is outstanding & evenly spread out and it only needs twice coating to look perfect.
it's just they don't really have any other variety than this glitter. staying classic, huh?
well, i hope you like reading the review and again, this is just my honest opinion! no sponsor purpose is intended. if you have any other opinion on the products, feel free to drop me a comment below ;) or maybe a little more private to my email (firstname.lastname@example.org) as i would love to hear from you!
and yes, i'm a beginner so please, puh-lease correct me if anything is wrong with my wording or anything :)
LOVE YOU ALL!
