Shiseido Maquillage Powder Celebration 5th Anniversary Set Review, Photos, Swatches

Shiseido Maquillage Powder Celebration 5th Anniversary Set 38

My Shiseido Maquillage Powder Celebration 5th Anniversary Set arrived from Japan last week. Lots of squealing, hyperventilating, and screaming occurred during the surgical procedure of opening and unwrapping the contents of the box it arrived in.

It’s probably my most expensive makeup purchase I’ve made this Holiday season, tipping the scales at nearly $200 USD due to costly airmail shipping.

It’s gorgeous to say the least.

Sana Hadanomy Collagen Mist Review, Photos

Sana Hadanomy Collagen Mist 2

Gather round kids.

Let me tell you, I can’t begin to list the number of collagen washes and various ranges of skincare that feature collagen in Asia. The amount is astounding. Boggles my little mind.

Collagen is quite the popular commodity in Asia. Perhaps this is why all Asian woman look incredibly young and gorgeous well into their golden years.

As for me I like the way a good collagen wash feels on my face. Feels all slippery and hydrating! Loves! I don’t really think the US embraces the entire collagen thing as much as Asia does. Sure we have skincare that includes it but Asia goes steps further with toners, lotions, washes, and more.

What’s it do?

It’s supposed to help skin retain moisture as well as increasing it and improving the skin while decreasing wrinkles. I’ve used collagen products for a while but I can’t really say if they working to decrease wrinkles since I haven’t reached that stage on my face however in combination with hyaluronic acid I can noticeably see how much more hydrated my skin feels and how it retains better levels of moisture.

Regardless this might be a bit boring and I’m not a chemist but it was a good lead in to my review of the new-ish (new-ish since it released two months or so ago) Sana Hadanomy Collagen Mist which supposedly boasts 1000 MG of Collagen.

Mandom Cleansing Express Eye Makeup Remover Review

Mandom Cleansing Express Eye Makeup Remover 1

I’m a big fan of Mandom’s Beauty offerings particularly the Mandom Moist Cleansing Express Lotion.

It’s kinda the lazy girl’s guide to removing makeup. It’s quick, it’s cheap, and it does the job fast and well. I don’t use it nearly as much as I’d like to since I have this intricate several step makeup removal process thing going on but if you’re lazy or just in a hurry Cleansing Express can pretty much get it all off, including waterproof mascara, quick and easy like.

Mandom Cleansing Express Eye Makeup Remover now this I can probably make complete use of daily.

Check it!

My Beauty Diary Bird’s Nest Review

My Beauty Diary Birds Nest 6

Bird’s Nest soup is Chinese delicacy and it an expensive one to boot. Amoung a slew of supposed health benefits, Bird’s Nest is also highly sought after for its skin benefits. Supposedly it helps your skin to retain moisture, strengthens it, etc…

Don’t be confused, yes, Bird’s Nest is exactly that, a bird’s nest.

One of my favorite sheet masks brands, My Beauty Diary, recently introduced a Bird’s Nest mask and I quickly snatches up a few boxes. I’ve been using these masks for a few months now and they could prove to be my favorite from the brand.
