Lululun (Blue) High Moisture Facial Sheet Mask Review

Lululun Blue High Moisture Facial Sheet Mask

I’ve already reviewed one of the Lululun Facial Sheet Masks I got from Japan recently. It was a rather awful experience all around. Ugh. These are possibly the worst masks I’ve come across outside of the Kose’s Clear Turn Sheet Masks.

I was HOPEFUL that the LuluLunHigh Moisture Mask would turn out to be a better pick.

Maybe it was?

Lavshuca Candy Pop Shadow Review & Swatches

Lavshuca Candy Pop Shadow

Ahh you might remember the Lavshuca Candy Pop Shadow from earlier this Spring which launched in Japan. These new single eyeshadows from Japanese brand Lavshuca are a step outside the normal palettes that Lavshuca traditionally releases.

The really unique thing is the fact they come in both matte and shimmer shades. Matte drugstore eyeshadow isn’t terribly common from brands like Lavshuca. I’m not a fan of matte finish myself but the idea of Lavshuca doing matte shades was intriguing.

In the end, I ended up with the sparkly shades hehe…! But I definitely think it’s a fresh step in a new direction for Japanese brands to embrace more matte shades of eyeshadow.

Let’s take a look!

Lululun Face Mask (White) Translucent Light Review

Lululun Face Mask

It’s a funny thing about facial masks I’ve tried SO many but can’t say I’ve tried a variety from Japan. In most cases my facial sheet masks come from either Korea or Taiwan. For all my love of Japanese makeup you’d think that I’d have tried more brands of facial sheet masks from Japan but that’s simply not the case.

Needless to say when I noticed the publicity that Lululun was getting in Japanese magazines I was quite curious about the brand and decided to order some of the masks and try them out.

Take a look!

Kao Biore UV Aqua Rich Watery BB Review & Swatches

Kao Biore UV Aqua Rich Watery BB Spring 2013

Biore UV Aqua Rich Watery BB was released earlier this February for Spring 2013 in Japan. This is Kao’s latest formula of their popular UV Aqua Rich Watery which I absolutely adore.

This protects with an SPF 50 PA+++ like the original but this new version is tinted to brighten skin up, ease dullness, and even out skin tone.

Take a look!
