If you can believe it Tiffa has updated it’s website!
Big news here.
I can’t recall the last time Tiffa bothered updating it’s site and not only have they updated but they have a new Spring Collection up and available!
I’m not sure when this new line hits shops in Japan but I’d say shortly.
Tiffa is a sub-company of Kanebo and carries a small but lovely line of products that are inexpensive. The updates to the line seem very interesting and I may add a few to my wish list!
Three Glitter Liners have been introduced in pink, silver, and black for 1000 yen each.
Also available are three “fragrant waters”. I’m not sure if these are body sprays or spray toners!
And finally three cologne sprays! The introduction of these leads me to believe that the above could be spray toners! I sure hope so because they look interesting if they are!
The new site is far easier to navigate if you are unable to read characters. The original site was cute but annoying as you had to unlock doors and such to see products. The new site offers a range of categories to find exactly what you are looking for quickly plus the pink theme is so sweet!
Not really any major releases for Tiffa but it’s nice to see the brand isn’t forgotten as it’s been a while inbetween releases! I’m holding onto the hope that they do some more of the dual shadow shimmers! The gold and silver is gorgeous! Love to see more!
Tell the Muse!
I was wandering around the Visee website this morning and it’s pretty much official that Kodi Kumi is a goner from the champaign.
The new site is updated with a face chart when you click “What’s New?”
Here’s what you used to get when clicking “What’s New?” As you can see Kodi Kumi has been replaced with a cutesy face chart!
I believe the site went live again about a week or two ago and the images have been revamped to exclude Kodi Kumi from the ads. I’m not sure if she’s completely gone or this is temporary while the fire cools. I’m betting she’s gone completely and the Summer Collection will feature a new spokesperson! But we shall see! I’ll miss her actually as she has that edge that really brought Visee alive for me and I’m curious who they’ll replace her with!
Below is the new Make-Up theme, again Kodi Kumi has been replaced by the cute face chart image!

Benefit’s released a Sephora exclusive kit that includes it’s popular oil free foundation Some Kind of Gorgeous along with some other interesting bits and pieces.
The kit also includes Eye Bright, Get Bent Lash Mascara, Benetint, a Mousepad, a carrying case.
The kit is $48 USD and available from Sephora now.
I’m personally not partaking of this particular kit but for you Benefit lovers this might be something you want to snatch up!
I’ve always been curious about Some Kind of Gorgeous but each time I test it on the back of my hand in the store it just feels so wrong and the color is so beige and unflattering!!
Tell the Muse!
Happy Monday girls (and guys)!
Sadly, no new updates for the Muse today. I have about 5 good entries to post but sadly Blogger is still in weekend mode and refuses to work for me.
Dunno what’s going on but I’m unable to upload pictures. It’s definately not a problem on my side but nothing on the maintenance page from Blogger either. Sigh.
How very irritating!
I’ve tried in several browses including Safari and no joy! So sadly, updates have to wait a while until this is fixed up!
Hope everyone had a great weekend!
I needed to get my mind off a few things so I really kept myself busy this weekend! I ended up going to two movies with friends, shopping with some friends, brunch with some friends I haven’t seen in a while, helped my mum get her Easter dinner shopping done, went to visit my cousin, did Spring closet and makeup cleaning, went to a poetry reading, went to a book signing, and a bunch of other stuff. All this excluding sleep lol! I’m kidding
How about you?
What did you do this weekend?
It was major cold here. Strong winds about 26 degrees out! Brrrr! But it felt good walking along in a warm jacket and gloves. Sometimes it just feels nice to be out in the cold weather!
Updates to come as soon as Blogger decides to cooperate! This little problem should get my arse in gear to get my own website up and rolling and do away with Blogger completely!
Back to work with my lazy self!
PS Good news. I was able to locate the Horizon Blush in Pink! w00t! I’ll be reviewing it shortly
I was browsing around the Laneige site a few weeks ago and I came across the The Secret of the Snow Crystal Snow Radiant Blushers. Sounds like an epic motion picture! Now playing The Secret of the Snow Crystal starring Bai Ling!
I’m not entirely sure if these were from the Holiday Collection or not and after much discussion and debate with a friend we decided that maybe they were something available from the Korean side of Laneige only!
I ended up getting the entire three that were released because they simply reminded me of MAC Mineralized Skinfinish and I rock Mineralized Skinfinish so that meant I’d be sure to shower love all over these!
These were about the same cost as an MSF and honestly they have the potential for converting non MSF users. Some folk hate Mineralized Skinfinish because they are glittery and shimmery. A wide range of the colors released thus far have contained chunky bits of glitter and not everyone likes to hose themselves down with glitter the way the Muse does!
Those of you who may have ranted that MAC’s powders have some major shimmer will be delighted to know that these perform the way you probably hoped for from MAC. They highlight, create a soft glow on your face, and enhance your blush minus the shimmer and glitter.
The powder is soft and silky and easy to blend. The effect that these create is what I call a sort of photo finish glow. You can use these on natural bare skin or over your blush. I personally like to use them over my blush. You can also contour areas of your face for extra highlighting if you prefer.
Laneige Snow Radiant Blusher in Snow
Laneige Snow Radiant Blusher in Gold
Laneige Snow Radiant Blusher in Pink Prism
I think they are quite a nifty powder to add to your beauty arsenal and a wonderful alternative if you’re not loving the amount of shimmer you get from a MAC Mineralized Skinfinish!
