Juju Cosmetics Aqua Moist Hyaluronic Acid Eye Cream Review

Juju Cosmetics Aqua Moist Hyaluronic Acid Eye Cream 1

Hadalabo is a very, very popular collection of skincare products available in Japan. I’ve always felt like Juju Cosmetics Aqua Moist Collection is kinda a copycat of the line.

Juju Cosmetics Aqua Moist Hyaluronic Acid Eye Cream recently caught my eye and I strayed from Hadalabo temporarily while I checked out this one.

Here are a few of my thoughts!

Lavshuca Sweet Up Cheeks Set Review, Swatches, Photos

Lavshuca Sweet Up Cheeks Set 1

Lavshuca is one of several brands under Kanebo. The brand is set apart by its princess-y packaging. I’ve always been a rather big fan of the brand but some of the product releases became repetitive so I hadn’t purchased anything from the brand in a while. I try not to miss their LE, special releases for the Holidays although they have changed considerably in recent years from really pretty palettes to coffrets that focus on eyes or lips, etc….

This year, their “coffret” spotlights cheeks with a cute set that includes a blusher and kabuki.

Magie Deco Cosme Decorte Coffret V Princess Jewel for Holiday 2011

Magie Deco Cosme Decorte Coffret V Princess Jewel for Holiday 2011

I know many of you were in lust with the Magie Deco Holiday 2011 Coffret and were curious where to get it.

I’m happy to report that it just launched today on Good Dealer’s website. I’m not affiliated with this site in any way, shape, or form but I have ordered from them in the past and find their pricing decent and their ship time is fairly fast.

If you want the coffret, which is quite limited and rare you might want to haul it from here. It’s $90 plus shipping fees.

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!
