Lavshuca Sweet Up Cheeks Set Review, Swatches, Photos

Lavshuca is one of several brands under Kanebo. The brand is set apart by its princess-y packaging. I’ve always been a rather big fan of the brand but some of the product releases became repetitive so I hadn’t purchased anything from the brand in a while. I try not to miss their LE, special releases for the Holidays although they have changed considerably in recent years from really pretty palettes to coffrets that focus on eyes or lips, etc….

This year, their “coffret” spotlights cheeks with a cute set that includes a blusher and kabuki.

Let’s have a look!

Magie Deco Cosme Decorte Coffret V Princess Jewel for Holiday 2011

I know many of you were in lust with the Magie Deco Holiday 2011 Coffret and were curious where to get it.

I’m happy to report that it just launched today on Good Dealer’s website. I’m not affiliated with this site in any way, shape, or form but I have ordered from them in the past and find their pricing decent and their ship time is fairly fast.

If you want the coffret, which is quite limited and rare you might want to haul it from here. It’s $90 plus shipping fees.

Princess Carnival Provence Lavender Relaxing Mask Review

It’s been unusually warm around these parts. Honestly, it doesn’t feel like Christmas because of this crazy weather but more like Spring.

But hey, there was a day or two where the moisture was completely sucked out of my skin and the bite of cold in the weather made me go “Brrrr!’ and shake my entire body like a little penguin.

I suspect more of those days are on the horizon that’s why I’ve been stocking up on facial sheet masks. It’s one of my top picks for keeping my skin looking less than dull and extra hydrated in the cold weather.

Let’s take a peek at Princess Carnival Provence Lavender Relaxing Mask.

Cosme Decorte Magie Deco Holiday 2011 Coffret

One of the more expensive things I haul from Japan every Holiday would be the Magie Deco Coffret. It’s truly a special treat for myself as I can’t really justify the cost of purchasing individual palettes and products from Cosme Decorte’s catalog since I know I’d place them in the beauty vault and never want to use them.

I find the Holiday Coffret very reasonably price and breathtaking beautiful. I believe I have all the Holiday Coffrets and I just recently used one (GASP, I know right?) and was every so proud of myself.

You may see a review of this this coffret soon but I thought I’d share a little makeup pr0n with you until I do decide to break my heart and swatch this one.

Enjoy!

Beauty Story Platinum Gold Leaf Anti-Aging Eye Mask Review

You’ve heard plenty about my obsession concerning Asian Sheet Masks but not alot about my other passion, Asia Eye Masks.

Eye Masks are along the same vein as a sheet mask since most are made of a thin cotton-like fiber which is saturated with a formula that treats puffiness, brightens the eye area, etc…

Beauty Story Platinum Gold Leaf Anti-Aging Eye Mask supposedly contains gold foil…why do I doubt that?

Let’s take a look!
