Kevin Beautymaker Concealer Stick Review & Swatches

Kevin Beautymaker Concealer

Kevin Beautymaker is a line of cosmetics created by a famous Taiwanese Makeup Artist. The line is sadly not available in the US but a quick search online and across the board on Evil-Bay will prove fruitful. I believe even Sasa.com carries his collection.

For the most part the brand has always been a raging success for me. He introduced a Concealer Stick sometime ago that I never got a chance to review. This review was brought on by a reader because she was interested in the stick and found it online for purchase.

Juice Beauty Stem Cellular Repair CC Cream

Juice Beauty Stem Cellular Repair CC Cream

Juice Beauty is the first brand to introduce CC Cream to the US market (and no Olay doesn’t count considering they simply renamed a product they already had available).

Kose Clear Turn Q10 Eye Mask Review

Kose Clear Turn Q10 Eye Mask

Clear Turn is one of Kose’s worst brands in my humblest. They make some rather crummy facial masks and I try to avoid them when possible.

The Kose Clear Turn Q10 Eye Mask are small eye patches enriched with Q10 Lotion to moisturize and improve firmness under eyes. My eyes can use all the moisture they can get but lately I notice they are a bit sleepy and droopy looking if I don’t get enough Zzz’s in so that’s why I indulged in these a few months ago.
