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.

I think I have most every shade of Majolica Majorca Honey Plump Gloss Neo from the permanent collection and something just led me to grab up the newest Spring shade OR202.

I’m sure glad I did as it is quite delightful!

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!

Brand New Lumene Bright Now Vitamin C BB Cream

New Lumene Bright Now Vitamin C BB Cream

I know I love Lumene Vitamin C+ Illuminating Anti-Age BB Cream so I’m happy to report about the new Lumene Bright Now Vitamin C BB Cream that’s launching for Spring 2014 in two shade selections.

I dunno how much different this formula can be from the Vitamin C formulation but I’m happy enough to give it a whirl. Recently, I also tried out the Lumene Bright Now Vitamin C BB Serum which also launched as part of this collection but I wasn’t terribly impressed with it.

However, a BB Cream with coverage that brightens? That I’d be very interested in trying!
