I happen to be a member of the Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler cult. Ya know, we believe that Shu’s Eyelash Curler is a gift from the makeup tool gods and that no one else has created a curler anywhere near on par with it. Another words, Shu’s Eyelash Curler is the end all eyelash curler…once you start using it, you’ll simply never need another eyelash curler in your life because it does the job and does it well.
Sadly, the downside is Shu has failed to evolve and still, to this day, does not offer lash pad refills. You’ll get plenty of people who proceed to recommend refilling it with another brand’s pad but people, the pad, is where the magic happens!
I’ve actually always believed that the pad is the key to an excellent eyelash curler. You can take any old lash curler insert a really good pad into it and instantly you’ll get amazing results as far as I am concerned. Take a crummy, dense pad and suddenly you’re getting rubbish results.
However, one eyelash curler does prove that it a combination of the design of the unit and the pad is the key to the ultimate lashes you’ve experienced.
Koji Japan Makeup Curving Eyelash Curler is a pure miracle to the lash curling world. Once you use it, you’ll want to write sonnets about its abilities.
I’ve said it before…
I simply don’t need another bottle of facial mist. I’m terribly addicted to them. Spritz here, mist there.
I remind myself of Peter O’Toole as Zaltar in Supergirl, “Spritz?” You either totally remember these geeky things or you don’t, it’s a gift.
But I do have an excuse this time. Just look at the Tony Moly Pocket Bunny Moist Mist and tell me how you could resist?
Whipping out your best smoky eye for the holiday season?
I’m not. Dude, smoky totally makes me look tired lately. I’m whipping out my best brown smoky eye…
However, those rocking the traditional smoky eye might want a little extra helping hand and a solid base with a little drama. Bring in the Sleek Makeup Molten Metal my little flying monkeys, yeah, I have flying monkeys around doing my bidding, I roll like that.
I dunno if we should take fruit shaped skincare seriously. Should we?
It’s just a testimony to how different the Asian market is to our own. Cute, fruit shaped skincare is completely taken seriously dude! Why shouldn’t your moisturizer be shaped like a peach and your eye cream like an apple?
Fruit shaped skincare is actually a common packaging in the Eastern market particularly hand cream. Baviphat (I always think Baby Phat when I type that) is a Korean brand that takes a few notes from Benefit Cosmetics with their packaging, or hey, maybe Benefit takes notes from them? Although some of their color cosmetics have whimsical packaging (a la, you guested it, Benefit) their skincare borders on the edible, foody variety of the sphere.
Take a look at this Baviphat Mango Magic Brightening Mask and you’ll see what I mean.Read More...
