I Got Schwinged!

Dear February,
I purchased two make up products this month.  Two packages wrapped in cute gift paper in one week. :)
Feel thankful.
But I'll stop! LOL.  I have to make sure that I'll shop again next month, not in February.

Anyway, you've known I got Innisfree Eco Fruit Tint.
Now I already have theBalm 'Schwing' Black Liquid EyelinerYep, I found it in dashgirlonline, a ready stock online shop, for IDR 150.000.  Well, I hope it's authentic anyway, but I think it's authentic. :D

(real swatch above...on the eyelids)

I've been eyeing this eyeliner since last year.  It's matte, they said, and the felt tip makes application easier.

Oh, uhm, don't forget the American-comic-style packaging decoration.  So catchy and pretty.  I guess theBalm is famous for their interesting packaging.  Don't you think so?

And hey, theBalm is cruelty-free, paraben-free.  They also have a concern with...pugs! Yes, pug, the cutest-weirdest-sweetest dog in the world.  I love pug! They are lovable. <3

That's me with the winged eye! :p

I would love to announce that I love this eyeliner! It's my first liquid eyeliner I bought. But I guess this is my first and last purchase.  Later, I want to find a greener-cleaner one.  :)

The application is quite easy.  Applicator is pointy, flexible, and since it's not a brush which can be tricky by being messy, it's more proper and clean.
Result on skin: matte black! Say it...hitam pekat in Indonesian.  I don't like glossy black eyeliner.  I better use metallic colour liners instead.  Norak, norak sekalian!

It dries fast after you draw the line.  But it's not waterproof.  Please note that.  Once you clean it, it's clean even only with water...smudgy clean and, hello, Panda!  Nah, you have to use a cleanser (such as: natural plant oil) to make sure you aren't becoming a panda.  :p 
And, I don't recommend watching sad movie while using this liner.  In case you can't stay calm and start rubbing your teary eyes. 

The most important part...content! :D
Ingredients of the liquid:
Water, alcohol denat, glycerin, pullulan, disodium coco-glucoside citrate, hectorite, xanthan gum, citric acid, sodium hydroxide, sodium dehydroacetate, iron oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499), ferric ammonium ferrocyanide (CI 77510)

Not the most awesome list, but not bad, for my standard. :)

C'est tout pour aujourd'hui.
Happy Tuesday! :D

  1. Wow, what a nice review!
    I've always wanted to try The Balm since a long time, but I hesitate because it's quite pricey. But I'm surprised that this one only cost for IDR 150,000 x))

    Anyway, you have such a lovely blog.
    I've been following you.
    Mind to follow me back? ^^

    Glad to know you.

    1. Hi Debby! :D Thank you for coming.
      Yo, try Dashgirl Online, they sell things cheaper there. I bought my Schwing there too, because the price of it is almost a half more expensive on theBalm counter.

      I'll follow you back! ;)
