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.
Love More is a Taiwanese series of Facial Sheet Masks done up in the style of My Beauty Diary. Lately, there’s been a steady flow of similar facial masks from Taiwan in that “cutesy” my Beauty Diary design to appeal to not only an older market but a younger one as well.
The gimmick or marketing behind Love More is the 3D mask design which features a lifting performance in six directions of your face.
Let’s take a look at the White Crystal & Platinum Whitening Lift Facial Mask.
Holika Holika is a Korean brand with a Harry Potter-ish kinda theme. The stores are decked out in shades of purple and black, employee uniforms have a witch-y vibe, and the brand takes lotions and potions to a new, magical level. I think the entire magic, witch, goth theme draws alot of attention and gives the brand its own little niche plus chalk up the traditional kawaii packaging that Korean and Asian brands in general embrace and you have yourself a happy helping of fabulous for makeup junkies.
I’ve reviewed a few Holika Holika products and today I hauled out the Holika Holika Aqua Petit Jelly Blusher that I picked up a several weeks ago. This blush will remind you of the packaging of the Aqua Petit Jelly I reviewed a few months ago.
Take a look!
It’s been a little bit of time since my last Jill Stuart purchase. I find the collections and colors a bit repetitive however I was intrigued by their new Prism Carat Eye Shadow & Base Duo that released with their Fall 2011 Collection. I asked my best friend, who lives in Japan, to pick up two of these out of sheer curiosity!
Let’s take a look a the promo images until these arrive in my mailbox and I can review!
