Lavshuca has updated it’s website with the Summer Collection!
It appears this Summer they are releasing two new palettes similar in style to the Holiday Palettes however these appear far better quality. Each palette seems to hold six eyeshadow shades. These come in two variations a cooler version which include blues, silvers, and greens and a warmer version which include golds, browns, and beiges. Both look simply gorgeous. Although I am missing the normal style of palettes released from Lavshuca I’m really not minding these at all! They are most definately in my cart for purchase when they are released!
The Holiday Palettes were made of cardboard and these appear to be made of either plastic or metal (I’d say plastic) which is nice as I found the Holiday Palettes a bit delicate!
I’m unsure of the price at this point as Kanebo has not yet updated the catalog with the info but as soon as I know I’ll pass it on to you!
I can’t wait to get my hands on these! These are simply beautiful and I’m positive if you’re a Lavshuca fan you’ll want them as much as me!

Majorca Majolica’s website has been updated with the brand new Summer Collection. The theme for the Collection is Miss Treasure Hunter.
You have to use your arrow keys on your keyboard to “walk” through the scenes of the website and find the hidden clues of the Collection!
A-ha I’ve found something! The following look is created using some of the items from the brand new Collection! It’s very Summery with gold and bright orange on the eye area! Take note that the model is also wearing the latest version of Majorca Majolica’s Mascara!
The new mascara is a burnt orange color and appears to go very well with golds! I’m very eager to get my hands on it!
The Collection also includes three new nail varnishes in orange, silver, and blue colors!
And finally a shimmering loose powder in a beautiful burnt orange color that will go perfectly with the new version of the mascara!
Although small the Collection appears to pack a nice punch! I’m looking forward to getting both the mascara and the loose powder!

My mate Rows from Mostly Makeup sent me over some Mini Bourjois Paris from jolly old England! Thanks Rows the Muse loves you lots and lots and lots!
This is my first time trying out Mini and I love it! I love the regular Bourjois Paris line anyway and this is amazing quality and just as good as the full size products!
I’m shocked and delighted at how great these are. It’s really nice to be able to indulge in such a cute, inexpensive cosmetic that has the quality to back itself up!
I know a few people aren’t really loving Bourjois’s normal baked eyeshadows. For whatever reason you might have for hating baked eyeshadows you’ll be able to happily indulge in Mini as the shadows are not baked. These are just regular old eyeshadows with great pigmentation for the price!
The shadows do not come with a compact and I believe they are around $6 or so each. I’m not sure if they fit into a MAC quad as I haven’t tried. You can purchase a cute little cardboard box which holds three shadows which costs $2! Not a bad deal in my opinion!
Pop it out!
and Pop It in here!
Colors 64, 60, and 58
The range carries not only eyeshadows but a ton of other mini items such as gloss, nail polish, pigments, etc…! I haven’t tried everything but I do like what I see so far!
The pigments are probably my favorite of the lot. They aren’t sheer by any means and you get a nice beautiful finish with them! Very pigmented for the price and just enough in the jar to last ages! I wish MAC pigments were available in this size!
Finally the lipgloss is the exact same formula as the regular size! It’s just cheaper and smaller! It has a little string you can use to attach it to your iPod, Cellphone, Etc…!
All in all Mini Bourjois Paris is definately something to keep your eyes out for! I know Ulta is now selling some of the line which is awesome as it was unavailable stateside prior to that! I’m hopeful that maybe Sephora will catch up and start carrying this!
If it’s inexpensive you seek without forsaking good quality this is exactly something you might try! These are excellent for traveling light as well or for those of you who are unable to finish larger size products!

Canmake is a drugstore brand available in Japan that’s low in cost and high on the cute scale. I personally love many of the items they put out. Quality is pretty good and the price can’t be beat! And the selection of items is VAST!
Canmake’s Summer Collection 2008 is now available on the website and should hit stores soon in Japan (or may already be in stores).
It’s not a huge collection but the items released have a bit of an impact as they are new to the Canmake line.
The first item that catches my eye straight away are the new eye palettes. This is the first time I’ve seen Canmake do an eye palette like this and it’s quite exciting! The palette is a quad of three shimmer shades (base shadow, eyelid shadow, and contrasting shade) and one liner. It’s a typical Japanese palette setup and has been done and redone but I still want them all!
The color selections available are a rose, blue, and brown variation. The price is 680 yen and as the yen is so strong at the moment which is setting it at under the mark of $6.73 USD but for the sake of it you might as well say it evens out to the same cost.
If you have access you might consider shopping in Taiwan at this point since it’s cheaper by at least $1 (or more if you’re lucky).
The collection also includes four new nail varnish colors available for 300 yen each. These aren’t new just updated colors to the general catalog.
It’s a tiny collection of goodies but I think the palettes make a big impact and I’m excited to try them out for myself!
Want any of this?
