Shiseido Anessa Perfect Gel Sunscreen SPF 50 Review

Shiseido Anessa Perfect Gel Sunscreen

Shiseido Anessa Perfect Gel Sunscreen SPF 50 PA++++ recently launched in Japan so I decided to skip out on my normal Allie SPF and try this instead.

I don’t believe Shiseido has every released a gel sunscreen prior to this in the Anessa Collection. Don’t quote me but they have always had liquid sunscreens as I recall. From my understanding the gel line will be available for a limited time but again don’t quote me on that.

Jill Stuart Jelly Blush Review & Swatches

Jill Stuart Jelly Blush is a new mousse-like blush that was released in Japan for Summer 2013. It’s available in five shade selections and quite reminiscent of Jill Stuart Jelly Eye Color.

I actually expected it to be WAY more shimmery than it is as the texture was so darn similar to Jelly Eye Color and we all know how sparkly Jelly Eye Color is right?

I was very excited about this blush launch as the product isn’t quite like anything I’ve seen before texture wise in a blush.

Let’s take a look!
