Shiseido Maquillage Essence Glamour Rouge Review, Swatches, Photos

Shiseido Maquillage Essence Glamour Rouge 001

Some girls are Shiseido Maquillage girls, some girls aren’t. I happen to be in the “aren’t group”. I dunno why but I’ve never fully embraced the Shiseido Maquillage line.

Shiseido Maquillage is a sub-brand from Shiseido available in Japanese drugstores (and a few select Asian countries as well). Quality is on par with counter makeup and the brand has a very large cult following however I’ve always dabbled my time away with other Shiseido sub-brands like Majolica Majorca.

Recently, my interest did get piqued again (it does sometimes with Maquillage) and I decided to haul some of the new Essence Glamour Rouges.

Let’s take a look!

Review: Seikisho Mask White for Removing Skin, Hair, & Clogged Pores

Seikisho Mask White 004

No joke on that title…

Anyone who’s ever used the Seikisho Mask White knows that exact feeling when you first yank that bad boy off your face. It not only pulls away gross ick from your pores but it’ll also take hair and skin along with it. I’m thinking it would make an ideal pick for bikini waxes…! Kiddin’, kiddin’!

Ouch dude, ouch!

But it’s the best thing in the world for those with clogged pores!

Clinique Age Defense BB Cream Review, Swatches, Photos

Clinique Age Defense BB Cream SPF 30 001

Clinique has joined the realms of BB Creams being released in North America. Thus far we’ve seen BB Creams from Smashbox, Boscia, Dr. Jart, and MAC.

I’ve noticed a few main differences with BB Creams here in the US versus the many I’ve tried here from Asia, these differences include:

  • Lower SPF (15 to 30 but no higher)
  • Lack of anti-aging ingredients
  • No whitening properties
  • No Acne, skin treatment ingredients
  • Lack of pigment

Of course, these things are to me what makes up a good Asian BB Cream however, North American standards are somewhat different particularly when addressing whitening ingredients, this is understandable and the lack of such an option in our BB Creams can be overlooked but other things such as anti-aging ingredients, lower SPF, etc…is rather disappointing.

Clinique released it’s BB Cream in Asia several months ago and most recently we are able to purchase it here in the US.

Let’s take a look at Clinique Age Defense BB Cream and see if it lives up to Asian standards.
