Majolica Majorca Majoromantica Review, Photos

Majolica Majorca Majoromantica 1

One of Shiseido’s more popular Asian brands, Majolica Majorca, and a favorite of mine, has a very small Holiday Collection this year. The selection features a fragrance oil, nail polish, and a new red mascara. I picked up two of the items on a whim since I adore the brand.

I imagine their Holiday Collection is so tiny because they are gearing up for a larger Spring release. Happy Days!

But we are in full Holiday mode so let’s worry about that first.

Today I have Majolica Majorca Majoromantica to review for you!

Let’s have a look!

Shiseido Maquillage Powder Celebration 5th Anniversary Set

Shiseido Maquillage Powder Celebration 5th Anniversary Set 2

Shiseido Maquillage Powder Celebration 5th Anniversary Set launches in Japan at the end of November and I can barely breath awaiting its arrival.

Shiseido’s Maquillage line has never been one of my favorite Japanese Brands and I do find I pass it up to venture towards other product lines. Not sure why that is but it just fails to excite me.

But I have no such reserves about celebrating their 5th Anniversary in style with the Powder Celebration Set, simply put, it’s stunning!

Check it!

Visee Royal Party Glam Nude Eyes Blond Fur Review, Photos, Swatches

Visee Royal Party Glam Nude Eyes Blond Fur 1

Visee is a branch off brand from Kose and is sold or used to be sold exclusively in Japan. Since my earlier ventures into Visee, its become available in other parts of Asia but not within the US.

It’s been a while since I purchased any Visee Eye Palettes. The joy of a great Visee Palette was definitely not as appealing as it once was considering the brand started becoming a tad repetitive, color wise, for me.

I did feel like the Visee Royal Party Glam Nude Eye Palettes deserved a purchase particularly Blond Fur which felt different and unique enough to buy and not a constant rehash of the same colors the brand favors as of late.

Japanese Cosmetic Collections Holiday 2010 Comes to Musings of a Muse

Lavshuca KATE Majorca Majolica

For the first time, it what seems to be too many years to count, I am bringing you Japanese Cosmetic Collections for Holiday 2010.

I’ve been very remiss in covering Beauty Abroad particularly Japan lately for a few reasons one of which was alot of rehash of colors, products, and generally items I wasn’t interested in particularly Holiday Coffrets which normally excite me.

Last year, I covered one or two items from Japan but nothing major since I failed to find the joy in some of the releases plus a few readers had expressed a dislike for the reviews because they felt it was difficult to locate the products in the review.

This year, I felt like we could use a little different. So for the first time in a while I will be covering Japan Winter and Holiday 2010. This will include reviews from Kanebo including Kate and Lavshuca plus Shiseido’s Majolica Majorca Holiday 2010 Collection and many other interesting bits and bobs.

I hope you’re excited about these reviews as I am.

Until they arrive please feel free to dive into the archives and start brushing up on Japanese Makeup if you haven’t already, there is ALOT of catching up to do if you haven’t had a chance to see these posts.

Enjoy!

Feel free to tell me what Japanese and/or Asian Collections that are tickling you this Holiday.
