Cosme Decorte Magie Deco Holiday 2011 Coffret

Cosme Decorte Magie Deco Holiday 2011 Coffret 001

One of the more expensive things I haul from Japan every Holiday would be the Magie Deco Coffret. It’s truly a special treat for myself as I can’t really justify the cost of purchasing individual palettes and products from Cosme Decorte’s catalog since I know I’d place them in the beauty vault and never want to use them.

I find the Holiday Coffret very reasonably price and breathtaking beautiful. I believe I have all the Holiday Coffrets and I just recently used one (GASP, I know right?) and was every so proud of myself.

You may see a review of this this coffret soon but I thought I’d share a little makeup pr0n with you until I do decide to break my heart and swatch this one.

Enjoy!

Biore Make-Up Remover Gel Review

Biore Make Up Remover Gel 1

Sigh it’s such sadness we don’t get nearly half the Biore Collection here in the US. The Eastern market features a range of not only skincare but even shower gels and soaps….

Damn shame we get around 7 or 8 products and that’s about it.

Biore Make-Up Remover Gel is one product you won’t find in drugstores here in the US but you might want to track it down if you have a larger Asian community in your city.

Check it!

Koji Japan Makeup Curving Eyelash Curler Review

Koji Japan Makeup Curving Eyelash Curler 001

I happen to be a member of the Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler cult. Ya know, we believe that Shu’s Eyelash Curler is a gift from the makeup tool gods and that no one else has created a curler anywhere near on par with it. Another words, Shu’s Eyelash Curler is the end all eyelash curler…once you start using it, you’ll simply never need another eyelash curler in your life because it does the job and does it well.

Sadly, the downside is Shu has failed to evolve and still, to this day, does not offer lash pad refills. You’ll get plenty of people who proceed to recommend refilling it with another brand’s pad but people, the pad, is where the magic happens!

I’ve actually always believed that the pad is the key to an excellent eyelash curler. You can take any old lash curler insert a really good pad into it and instantly you’ll get amazing results as far as I am concerned. Take a crummy, dense pad and suddenly you’re getting rubbish results.

However, one eyelash curler does prove that it a combination of the design of the unit and the pad is the key to the ultimate lashes you’ve experienced.

Koji Japan Makeup Curving Eyelash Curler is a pure miracle to the lash curling world. Once you use it, you’ll want to write sonnets about its abilities.

Attention Please Make Up Base Cream Review

Pan Am Christine

Let me tell ya, Pan Am, is all about the visual candy because the substance of the drama is so snoring boring…..

I thought this was the break out hit for Fall…? What the hell happened? Seriously, if it wasn’t for the clothes, hair, makeup, and accessories I’d have deleted it from my Tivo three episodes ago.

Gimme zombies
and haunted houses, forget 60′s glam….!

Speaking of retro Stewardess’…Attention Please, a brand I recently introduced you too, seems to be doing some pimping for Pan Am as their packaging gathers up the retro vibe of travel days gone by.

Let’s take a look at Attention Please Make Base Cream and see if it offers anything better than the Pan Am TV show does. Yawn.

Bison Wakilala Underarm Cleanser Review

Bison Wakilala Underarm Cleanser 001

I dunno if I’m lacking in my underarm care because up until now I’ve never actually had a specific wash just for my pits. How about you? Shower Gel or soap has always worked perfectly fine for me…

But Bison Wakilala Underarm Cleanser proclaims I’m doing it wrong!

Wakilala is a Japanese cleaner that was created exclusively for cleansing under your arms…

Beauty Most Unusual maybe?
