Poppy Dharsono Cosmetic – Eye2Eye [Makeup Review]

Hello ladies, do any of you ever tried or heard of  Poppy Dharsono Cosmetic? Last week, I was sent a beauty box by them, filled with a few of their Eyes Makeup Collection.

Before this, I never heard of their cosmetics. Therefore, I was very excited to share with you all my thoughts of Poppy Dharsono’s Eyes Makeup.

The Brand

After being successful in the Fashion World,  Poppy Dharsono was then extends its wings to the beauty world. By utilizing her skills in following and analyzing the World Fashion Trend, Poppy released her own makeup line – Poppy Dharsono Cosmetic. The colors selected were inspired by Runaway Trend combined with Indonesian Culture Heritage.

The Product

Just like other brands, Poppy Dharsono Cosmetic also released Full Face Makeup Makeup, starting from Face Makeup (Foundation, Face Powder, Blush), Eyes Makeup (Eyeshadow, Eyeliner, Brow Pencil, Mascara), and also Lips Makeup (Lipstick & Lip Gloss).

However, I will just specifically discussed their Eyes Makeup – Eyeshadow, Eyeliner, Brow Pencil & Mascara that were sent to me.

Poppy Dharsono Cosmetic – 5 Signature Runaway Eye Colors

Inspired by  Fashion Trend, Poppy released Eyeshadow Palette called 5 Signature Runaway Eye Colors. So, each palette is curated with 5 different signature colors combination. There are 4 combinations:

  • 5 Signature Runaway Eye Colors no.1 Twilight
  • 5 Signature Runaway Eye Colors no.2 Mardi Gras
  • 5 Signature Runaway Eye Colors no.3 Summer Love
  • 5 Signature Runaway Eye Colors no.4 Winter Sky

Mine here is the Summer Love (no.3) palette. It is composed of Pink, Cream, Baby Pink, Burgundy & Blue shades.

  • The palette has inconsistent Formula. Some has better pigmentation, while others have poorer pigmentation.
    • Shade no 1 has the best pigmentation
    • Shade no 2 has most shimmer
    • Shade no 3 has the chalkiest texture
    • Shade no 4 has quite dry texture and a little hard to work with.*
    • Among all, Shade no 5 is the most dry and hardest to work with. You need to be patient when working it out.
  • All of the shades are build-able. So, you can build the intensity of the colors as you wish.*
  • No fall out
  • easy to blend

For the longevity, since I have oily skin, it does not last long without primer. Plus, since some shades have poor pigmentation, therefore I highly encourage you to use eye primer first. With eye primer on, this Signature Runaway Eye Colors eyeshadow last all day. My longest record was up to 12 hours ( I was wearing White NYX Eye shadow Base).

It was really unfortunate for shade 4 & 5 to have the poorest pigmentation. It was really a surprise for me too. Usually, dark shade such as blue and burgundy have the best pigmentation – creamy, pigmented and easy to work with. Still, I really did not expect to find the other 3 light shades to have better pigmentation. I hardly wore pink shades because it hardly showed on my skin. Therefore, I was in a love and hate relationship with this palette for a while. In short, I finale decided to like this palette because of the light shades. I can always use other palette’s dark shades to create smokey eyes with it.

Poppy Dharsono Cosmetic – Pro Definer Eyeliner Pencil

Poppy Dharsono Cosmetic has two types of Eyeliner : the Pro Definer Eyeliner Pencil and the Intense Liquid Eyeliner Proof. Mine here, I was sent the Poppy Dharsono Eyeliner Pencil in black shade. If you think black is too dark, it is available in one more shade, Brown. It is packaged in gold and brown theme. I found it feels luxurious.

Poppy Dharsono Cosmetic – Pro Definer Eyeliner Pencil


  • It has a creamy texture
  • Easily glide
  • Easy to control
  • Thick shade
  • Not smudge-proof
  • Not waterproof
  • It is not last long, the color fades after a while.

In regards with the longevity, I thought it did not last long on me because I have monolids and oily skin; therefore the shades fading quickly. So I tested it by leaving a swatch  on the back of my hands. After about 15 minutes, the shades started to fade. In short, the color looks more like dark grey than black. After about 3 hours, it was still visible, but looked vague.

Basing on the above experiment, I concluded that the eyeliner would stay longer if you have normal – dry skin and double eyelid. It is because when you have monolid, whenever you blink, it will rub away the shade. In relation with oily skin, as I often mention on my other posts, there is no oil-proof makeup. Anything claimed to be smudge proof and waterproof can be cleaned with oil base cleanser or remover. Hence, don’t be surprise to find this eyeliner to wear off or fading quickly if you have oily skin, because the oil produced by your skin will definitely melt the makeup.

To get the best outcome with this Pencil Eyeliner, make sure that the pencil tip is sharp. If your pencil tip is blunt, it will be harder to make wings. So make sure the tip is sharp all the time. Since it is the pencil type, you need to sharpen it with sharpener. Also, I highly suggesting you to take your time, because it’s very difficult to tidy up and correct the mistake once it’s out of line, as it smudges badly.

Poppy Dharsono Cosmetic – Pro-Definer Intense Volume Mascara

I am intrigue by their mascara name, Pro-Definer Intense Volume Mascara. Not only it’s very straight forward, but the word “Pro” is very convincing. Yet, I still want to share with you their promises:

  • Waterproof
  • Volumizing the lashes
  • Intensifying the lashes
  • Lengthening the lashes
Poppy Dharsono Cosmetic – Pro-Definer Intense Volume Mascara

Here is my thoughts basing on my personal experience:


  • At first it was very dry, I got nothing on the wand. So I tried to poke the tube with the wand till I finale get some products on the wand. It turned out has a sticky formula. Hence, when I blinked my eyes, the top and bottom lashes sticked together.
  • It takes a while to dry till the stickiness gone
  • The mascara helps lengthening the lashes
  • waterproof
  • It is lumpy; so, don’t use too much. Don’t apply more than 3 layers.

To be honest, I kind of disappointed with the formula. I think they can do better than that, especially as they call it Pro-Definer Intense Volume Mascara; yet, it did not volumizing at all. I am not sure if it’s just mine that has gone bad. Please let me know if you ever tried Poppy Dharsono Cosmetic Pro-Definer Intense Volume Mascara too, and how it went with you.

Mascara is a serious matter for me. It’s because when I do minimalist eye makeup, I usually just apply highlighter on the brow bone and on the inner corner of the eyes; then, I curl and apply mascara. That’s enough for no makeup – makeup or for effortless look. I hope Poppy will fix the formula to be better soon.

Poppy Dharsono Cosmetic – Pro Definer Eyebrow Pencil

Last but not least is the Pro Definer Eyebrow Pencil. It comes in two shades: black and brown. Mine here is the brown one. It is designed to give a long lasting natural look for your brows.

Poppy Dharsono Cosmetic – Pro Definer Eyebrow Pencil


  • Dry texture
  • Medium-low pigmentation (Crisp line)
  • Easy to control
  • Easy to work with
  • Build-able, so we can build the intensity of the shade.
  • A little bit lumpy
  • Last Long

Poppy is actually claiming this Pro Definer Eyebrow Pencil to be highly pigmented, but it turned out to be have a dry medium-low pigmentation. However, I find it fine. It’s because the result looks very natural. The shade is not over-powering. In contrast, some eyebrow pencil has a bold pigmentation, but is really hard to work with and lumpy. Therefore, I rather to have medium or medium-low pigmentation but is build-able, easy to control and work with. I know it takes time, but is better that way rather than taking more time to clean up the mess, or worse, I have to redo  the eyebrow.
