Soap & Glory Comes to the US in….September….

Soap Glory

Well, wow, we just have to wait 100 makeup years before we hear where Soap & Glory will land. After being absent from our Target shelves so long I’m starting to come to terms with the fact that I can’t get my favorite Soap & Glory goodies at my favorite store (<3 you Target!).

Your Target shelves are probably already bare or getting to be bare as the Soap & Glory stock disappears for good from the US. After a promise to, “Be Back Soon!” we haven’t heard much from the brand until their recent launch in Singapore. Which got us quite excited as that meant they must be on their way to the US really soon right?

Nope.

The most recent news to hit is Soap & Glory is still working on a retailer and will be available in the US starting in…..September. Ouch.

So look for Soap & Glory to be hitting some retailer, some where in the US, starting in September aka 100 makeup years away! If you aren’t here by Fall 2011, we are road tripping our way to England and storming the nearest Boots for our fix! So get here QUICK!

Where do you think they’ll land?

Sephora?

CVS?

Ulta?

B&C Laboratories Sony CP Peach Hand Cream and Lip Balm Review, Photos, Swatches

BC Laboratories Sony CP Peach Hand Cream and Lip Balm 1

I was thinking hard about it, no worries, haven’t shorted any circuits here….and I realized I apply hand cream just as chronically and compulsively as I do lip gloss.

Seriously.

Any chronic hand cream appliers out there? Is there a club? Can we get moral support for the compulsion? Is there anyway to stop when presented with kawaii fruit shaped lip balms and hand creams from Japan?

Why do they tempt us?

Lavshuca Star Decoration Eyes GN1 BR-1 Review, Photos, Swatches

Lavshuca didn’t go the coffret route this year for the Holidays which was a bit disappointing. Nor did they go for a special palette release. They did however release a brand new selection of eyeshadow palettes. This is an interesting release for the brand considering they reserve palette releases for the Spring and only release a special palette or two or a coffret for the Holidays.

Lavshuca is a drugstore brand that can be purchased in Japan. Unlike findings in a US drugstore, Japanese drugstore makeup is of high quality, incredibly pigmented, and just stunning, packaging wise.

For Winter, Lavshuca released a total of five shades of their new Star Decoration Eyes Palettes.

Let’s have a look!

Biore Moisture Lotion Moisture (Cream In), Fresh (Cool), Moisture Review

Biore Moisture Lotion Moisture Cream In Fresh Cool Moisture 7

I guess I’m a little weird but I follow the Kao Group very closely in Japan since I prefer their Biore releases over the ones that can be found in the US.

A recently Japanese release of new Biore Moisture Lotion intrigued me and I asked a friend to pick me some up. Shipping was a bit yak so I ended up telling her to skip it and hauled them from Adam at AdamBeauty (thanks Adam, love your shipping rates).

“Lotion” isn’t actually the term we’d use to describe what actually is toner. However, most Asian countries refer to toner as lotion so not to be confused here the Biore Moisture Lotion is, indeed, a toner.
