Kao Biore Aqua Rich Watery BB Launches in Japan

Kao Biore Aqua Rich Watery BB

I’m happy to report Kao has launched their next generation Aqua Rich Watery product in the form of a BB Cream. Biore Aqua Rich Watery BB contains the same great formula as the original Aqua Rich Watery SPF 50 which has a mousse-like texture and a moisturizing finish but also now acts as BB Cream for giving skin a brighter appearance on application.

I love the idea of it still containing a generous SPF 50 as well as being tinted to even out skin tone and to act as a tinted moisturizer of sorts. Even if it doesn’t provide the same great benefits as a regular BB Cream I’m still interested in trying it out as I use and love the original sunscreen only version.

This retails for $7-$10 in Japan so expect to pay $14.99 and upwards when it reaches online shops.

I’ll be reviewing it shortly.

If you tried it feel free to share your thoughts!

Keep your eyes on AlphabeautyUK (not affiliated) on E-bay as I’m sure she’ll be getting it shortly!

Coffret D’Or Shine Fit Eyes Review & Swatches

Coffret DOr Shine Fit Eyes 7

Coffreet D’Or Shine Fit Eyes are kinda the younger hipper sister of the old Coffret D’Or Fluffy Shine Eyes launched many a moon ago. Packaging is revamped, it’s now a cream versus a mousse, and the sparkle finish is here too.

I loved the Fluffy Shine Eyes myself and hated to see them go so I was happy when the Shine Fit Eyes launched as I thought it would be a similar product to fill the missing void Fluffy Shine Eyes left.

Take a look!

Majolica Majorca Puff de Cheek PK415

Majolica Majorca released two limited edition shades of Puff de Cheek for Summer 2012 one of which was Raspberry Macaron. I already raved Cherry Macaron rather hard so I thought I’d haul out Raspberry today and review it.

Ok, so I’m a little late and Raspberry might be a little harder to find but it is well worth checking out!

Dr. Jart Water Fuse Smart Gel BB Review & Swatches

Dr. Jart Water Fuse Smart Gel BB 1

Dr. Jart Water Fuse Smart Gel BB is an interesting new BB Cream from the brand that features a bounce-y texture that just makes you want to sit around and play with it.

I was tempted to make a little video featuring it as I wanted you to see the texture in as true to life medium as possible. The thing is, the bb cream, almost has a life its own. Seriously! It’s ALIVE! You can pop a finger in it, scrap some off the top, place a brush in it, and after a few seconds to a minute it’ll “grow” over and become fresh and new again. It’s odd! We have to be careful, it might take over the universe at some point!
