Les Merveilleuses de Laduree

Les Merveilleuses de Laduree 4

The Les Merveilleuses de Laduree Collection launched in Tokyo recently. This is a selection of incredibly lavish makeup inspired and brought to you by Laduree, yes, as in the creator of delicate Parisian macrons.

Pastries aren’t exactly in the realms of makeup but Laduree puts as much care, beauty, and sweetness in their new color collection as they would any of their decadent desserts.

Take a look!

HadaLabo Gokujyun Super Hyaluronic Makeup Remover Review

HadaLabo Gokujyun Super Hyaluronic Makeup Remover 001

HadaLabo is an extremely popular skincare collection in Japan. The products are well known for containing hyaluronic acid which is an excellent ingredient for hydrating skin as well as allowing your skin to retain more moisture.

I’m not sure how effective it is having such an ingredient in your cleanser but the HadaLabo Gokujyun Super Hyaluronic Makeup Remover is one of my favorite makeup removers.

Lunasol Glowing Powder Cheeks Pure Coral Swatches

Lunasol Glowing Powder Cheeks Pure Coral Swatches 1

Lunasol has introduced two new boxed powders a la Benefit for Spring 2012.

Glowing Powder Cheeks is available in a coral and pink version and launched in Japan just recently. I was intrigued by these as they sported the same packaging as Benefit plus the “glowing” sold me as I assumed they have a gorgeous shimmer or perhaps a glowing, highlighted finished.

Take a look!

Koh Gen Do Cleansing Spa Water Review

Koh Gen Do Cleansing Spa Water 1

I’m seeing quite a few cleansing waters released at the moment. They aren’t a hugely popular product in the US but they do decently well in the Asian market. One in particular that’s cult favorite is Mandom Cleansing Water. I reviewed this quite a few years ago on Musings and its kinda my lazy girl makeup remover for when I’m really not up for the huge nightly regime to get my makeup off.

Cleansing waters are fairly nice because they are not only simple and to the point for makeup removal but most do a damn good job tackling waterproof makeup while still remaining gentle enough not to strip skin or dry it out. Of course, this is from my experience using Asian ones, I haven’t really used any in the US.

Koh Gen Do Cleansing Spa Water happened across my desk a few weeks ago and I’m happy to say I’m enjoying it immensely.
