KATE Crystallise Quartz Eyeshadow Review, Swatches, Photos

KATE Crystallise Quartz Eyeshadow 21

KATE is a Japanese branch off brand from Kanebo. KATE has always been the edgier, goth-y older sister in Kanebo’s brand line up. I’ve always loved the palettes they do but as I’ve gotten older I enjoy them even more since many of the shades selections include some nice nude, natural colors.

The new KATE Crystallise Quartz Eyeshadow Palettes are a brand new palette that launched for Spring. Honestly, if you’re a fan of the brand this is kinda a rehash of what KATE does season after season after season. New method of application but same old shades. If you never tried KATE this will prove a very exciting adventure however those who are old hat to the brand, like me, might feel it’s a bit repetitive.

Majolica Majorca Jeweling Eyes Palettes Spring 2011 Caramelisee BR631 Sugar Cookie PK330 Review, Photos, Swatches

Majolica Majorca is one of very favorite Japanese brands. I recently purchased two of their new Jeweling Eyes Palettes in two limited edition shades they released with their Spring 2011 Collection.

I don’t need another MJ palette in all honesty (Click, see what I mean!) but since I haven’t yet tried the Jeweling Eye Palettes I decided that these colors would be a good place to start.

Is Vitacreme B12 the most overhyped product in Japan? Damn Straight It Is!

Vitacreme B12 1

A famous Japanese actress made Vitacreme B12 one of the most hyped up skincare products I’ve ever had the pleasure of using. The claims of renewed skin cells, diminishing age lines and existing wrinkles, and just generally making skin look amazing are just a few of the urban legends that surround this moisturizer or at least in my experience they are urban legends.

I’ve been using the cream on and off for a few years and recently had an e-mail from a reader asking me if I had ever tried it.

Damn straight I have and no it doesn’t jump rope and chew gum at the same time.

Here’s the deal according to the Muse!
