Lunasol Fall 2011 Collection Lunasol Three Dimensional Eyes Palettes

Lunasol Fall 2011

Lunasol is one of Kanebo’s prestigious makeup collections with a range of elegant makeup products. What might surprise you about the brand is it’s commonly found in Japanese drugstores with a mid-counter price range of $20 and upwards yet the packaging, products, and quality are superior and rivaling that of what you can find at any high counter here in North America.

On August 19, the Lunasol Fall 2011 Collection launched in Japan with the focal point on their brand new Three-Dimensional Eyes Palettes that feature eight shades of eyeshadow done up in a very interesting design.

Take a look!

Shiseido Anessa Perfect UV Sunscreen SPF 50 Review

Shiseido Anessa Perfect UV Sunscreen SPF 50 001

Shiseido Anessa Perfect UV Sunscreen SPF 50 a necessary evil in my SPF life. If I can, I will avoid milky-type SPF products as I simply don’t like that formula however I will admit some of them I do embrace because they offer superior protection.

That’s the case with Anessa.

Anessa is a popular range of SPF products and is sub-brand of Shiseido which is available in Japan and a few select Asian countries. It’s terribly crummy that the only Shiseido we really experience here in the US is what we found at our high end counter as Shiseido offers a very WIDE array of various products in Asian countries.

Let’s take a look at Anessa and see what it’s such a popular SPF product in Asia.

It’s been a little bit of time since my last Jill Stuart purchase. I find the collections and colors a bit repetitive however I was intrigued by their new Prism Carat Eye Shadow & Base Duo that released with their Fall 2011 Collection. I asked my best friend, who lives in Japan, to pick up two of these out of sheer curiosity!

Let’s take a look a the promo images until these arrive in my mailbox and I can review!
