Jill Stuart Prism Carat Eye Review, Swatches, Photos

Jill Stuart Prism Carat Eye 001

Jill Stuart released five shades of her newest product, Prism Carat Eye, in Japan for Fall 2011 recently. I decided I absolutely needed a few of these since I happen to be a shimmer-a-holic and boy did these scream shimmer.

I started out with two but my best friend absolutely had to have one so I gifted him with it and later, after I completed this review, he ended up inheriting the other one as well as I simply didn’t end up liking the product and a club kid like him will make way better use of it than I will.

Brace yourself, you REALLY need to love shimmer to get on board with this one.

Lunasol Fall 2011 Collection Lunasol Three Dimensional Eyes Palettes

Lunasol Fall 2011

Lunasol is one of Kanebo’s prestigious makeup collections with a range of elegant makeup products. What might surprise you about the brand is it’s commonly found in Japanese drugstores with a mid-counter price range of $20 and upwards yet the packaging, products, and quality are superior and rivaling that of what you can find at any high counter here in North America.

On August 19, the Lunasol Fall 2011 Collection launched in Japan with the focal point on their brand new Three-Dimensional Eyes Palettes that feature eight shades of eyeshadow done up in a very interesting design.

Take a look!

Shiseido Anessa Perfect UV Sunscreen SPF 50 Review

Shiseido Anessa Perfect UV Sunscreen SPF 50 001

Shiseido Anessa Perfect UV Sunscreen SPF 50 a necessary evil in my SPF life. If I can, I will avoid milky-type SPF products as I simply don’t like that formula however I will admit some of them I do embrace because they offer superior protection.

That’s the case with Anessa.

Anessa is a popular range of SPF products and is sub-brand of Shiseido which is available in Japan and a few select Asian countries. It’s terribly crummy that the only Shiseido we really experience here in the US is what we found at our high end counter as Shiseido offers a very WIDE array of various products in Asian countries.

Let’s take a look at Anessa and see what it’s such a popular SPF product in Asia.
