The Revolution is Here! UD Revolution Lipstick is STREAKin in!

Besides than their Naked line, Urban Decay also well known for their Revolution lipstick. This is the new revolutionary version of their old weapon-shaped lipstick (i have one in Lovechild, reviewed here). Guess that new era is on?

This Revolution Lipstick is something that we should appreciate. In my own opinion, they're about the same level with Burberry Lip Velvet (my review for the one in Antique Rose is here). I mean, they both have pretty elegant packaging that screams luxury, pigmented, buildable and non drying formula. The difference are in price tag & scent. No offense here, i love the scent in Burberry's lip velvet. On the other hand, UD also win in staying power.

Well since it's not a comparison post, i will continue to talk about UD's.

 This babe is retailed for $22 in USA (about $236/oz). I have no idea how much does it cost in SouthEast Asia.

This pretty pwetty packaging doesn't need to be touch to know that it's definately a luxury. It's kinda weight, but acceptable.

 According to UD, Streak is a coral pink shade. Yes, it's pinker than "standard" coral shade.
This lipstick version doesn't as bright as the lip pencil.
 
 I really loves the UD embossed in the cap. Very pretty. 

 The shade in bullet is softer than the one in the box.


 It seems really pink on my arm swatch. It really is.
The color is buildable & it also will be brighter.

No lip swatch for today since my camera won't pink the right color.. Or maybe it's just my lips that being paler.

Simply said, i love it.
The amazing formula (it's NOT drying at all!) in such a pretty packaging.
Score!

ps. Which one do you think is better for a yellow toned, asian girl in her twenty-something? Naked? Naked2? Manic? Fiend? or maybe Strip?
ps2. i don't really like bright shade.

Thankyou! :)

The Body Shop Strawberry Body Polish, a Pleasure in Tube

I think the title has explained everything.

Well, i always love the idea of combining your shower gel with scrub (or polish, you name it). I remember when i was a teenager, in Indonesia we have a shower gel with scrub from brand "Seventeen" which work wonders and affordable, i always have a stock in my bathroom until it's discontinued.

I used to tried to move into dry body scrub (called lulur in indonesian) but i truthfully, i hate waiting it to dried and hate it more to scrub. My usual method is using it to my wet skin, and not waiting til it's dry. This method works, but very impractical.

The day when i decided to purchase TBS's Body Polish will never forgotten.

  

I want to purchase the full size product but it was out of stock. I have to be happy with this travel size one (75ml) and it's retailed for idr. 89,000.
 

There's the ingredient list (click for enlarge)

So they're using Walnut shell powder and Kiwi seed as the main polish and add Strawberry juice (which also contained of seeds). It's also has Honey that prevent skin from over drying and add extra sweet scent to the product.


The tube is just nice, like any other tubes. I just love to pictured every angle of it.


Doesn't it looks like a strawberry squeze?
It's smell like one too!

 Again, the smell is amazing. If you're familiar to Body Shop's strawberry scent, it's even better because of the Honey. Very relaxing, comforting, pleasuring.. It's definately a LOVE.

And how about the cleaning side?
I haven't think that a shower gel could makes my skin very clean. I haven't found any dead skin after using my Strawberry body polish (unlike any other body scrub), even i never put too many pressure while using it. The scrub aren't harsh at all, even the big, black one.

Also because it's in gel form, it's easy to spread. I only need a small amount of product for everytime so i think it will last quite long.
My skin also loves it. It haven't makes my sensitive skin getting worse.

It's something that makes my day a day.
If only it's cheaper, i would be happier.. Tee-Hee!

Have you tried it? Do you loves it as i do? :)
