Bihada Ichizoku Makeup Gorgeous Lip Gloss Shimmery Pink (Review and Swatches)

I have a slight obsession with Japanese lip glosses, just a little tiny one mind you, nothing major. I’m totally lying but let’s act like I’m not.

Rosette Hello Kitty Collagen Wash Review

Rosette Hello Kitty Collagen Wash 1

Morning dears!

Sometimes I ask myself, “Do you really NEED another Japanese foaming facial cleanser?” and I proceed to remember why I don’t need another one. Could it be the dozens that already grace my bathroom closet? Yes, that would be it.

However, I can’t resist a tube of foaming face wash that has Hello Kitty’s face plastered on it.

Damn straight I’ll indulge in that!

Lunasol Star Shower Eyes Review and Swatches: Lunasol Star Shower Eyes Star River Review and Swatches

Hey chicklets!

I’m hittin’ up my blog roots today with a little Japanese makeup review. Been ages since I delved into the world of Japanese cosmetics hasn’t it? If you’ve been hanging with me for a while, you probably remember days of old when Musings was all about Japanese makeup. Things have changed considerably as I found that reader’s appreciated hearing about local brands, counter, drugstore, etc….so I’ve tried to diversified alot with Musings and cover various brands from abroad as well as cosmetics easily located within the US.

Fun and Games With Rosette Foaming Sponges: Rosette Foaming Sponge Review

Sometimes you need a little stupid with the serious.

I introduced you to Rosette a few months ago when I showed you some of the sweet Hello Kitty offerings from the brand. When I hauled those pieces I also got a set of Rosette Foaming Sponges, a completely stupid beauty product that’s actually quite helpful and cute.
