Majolica Majorca Honey Plump Gloss Neo Review & Swatches

Majolica Majorca OR202 Honey Plump Gloss Neo

Majolica Majorca Honey Plump Gloss Neo has two new shades for Spring 2014 that just recently launched in Japan. I’m a huge fan of Majolica Majorca but in recent years I haven’t been hauling as much of it as I find some of the limited edition items a bit repetitive.

Biore Apple Honey Nose Pore Cleansing Strips Review

Biore Apple Honey Nose Pore Cleansing Strips

Yay! The new seasonal, limited edition Biore Apple Honey Nose Pore Cleansing Strips have launched in Asia. Every year, Kao does a new seasonal scent for Spring and I typically pick up a few boxes because they are rather great.

In Spring 2012, they did the Biore Aroma Collection Pore Strips Happy Grapefruit & Romantic Rose Collection and Spring 2010 brought us the Biore Resort Pore Pack Nose Strips Relaxing Floral.

A few years ago we did get a Mandarin scent here in the US but outside of that we never, ever got scented nose strips. Too bad because they are rather novel.

Take a look!
