Visee Aqua Shining Eyes Review

Visee doesn’t get nearly enough love on my blog. It’s one of my very favorite brands from Kose and available within Japan only sadly!

I’ll be reviewing Visee Spring Collection shortly but today I’m doing a review on my favorite product offered from Visee which is the Aqua Shining Cream Eyeshadow.

If you read my blog often enough you’ve come to realize how much I detest cream shadows with a passion however Visee Aqua Shining Eyes is a favorite cream shadow of mine and it gets my highest seal of approval!

These come in a beautiful array of colors which is a key selling point for me! They also pack an extreme bit of sparkle and shimmer which, as you know, the Muse adores.

These blend beautifully! Three little dots on your lid and a quick swipe of your finger and you’ll have beautiful sparkling eyes!

Pigmentation is excellent and the formula is so good that the color lasts all day!

A key selling point on these for me is the sparkle and shimmer I’ve never run across a cream shadow that packed so much beautiful glitter!

One con is the price and the size of the product. Although you need very little of the shadow to get a beautiful eye look the size of the tube seems uber small and it feels like not alot of product is inside for the price of 1,890 yen per a shadow.

Aside from that very minor rant Aqua Shining Eyes are definately a go for me and I adore them and can’t help but recommend them to you!

They are definately worth trying out for yourself! If you’re a big fan of creams these will surely appeal!

Koda Kumi is a Goner!

?action=view&current=wwwbmpwwwI was wandering around the Visee website this morning and it’s pretty much official that Kodi Kumi is a goner from the champaign.

The new site is updated with a face chart when you click “What’s New?”

Here’s what you used to get when clicking “What’s New?” As you can see Kodi Kumi has been replaced with a cutesy face chart!
wwwbmp

I believe the site went live again about a week or two ago and the images have been revamped to exclude Kodi Kumi from the ads. I’m not sure if she’s completely gone or this is temporary while the fire cools. I’m betting she’s gone completely and the Summer Collection will feature a new spokesperson! But we shall see! I’ll miss her actually as she has that edge that really brought Visee alive for me and I’m curious who they’ll replace her with!

Below is the new Make-Up theme, again Kodi Kumi has been replaced by the cute face chart image!

Visee Spring Collection 2008

www

As reported by the Muse’s gorgeous friend Iris (Click here to visit Iris), Visee’s website has been updated with it’s new Spring Collection and the Muse is rolling around in fits of excitement at the offerings!

I’m especially in lust with the new mascara! It looks amazing (the Muse has a fetish for Japanese mascara).

The two new Jewel Crush Eye Palettes look similar to colors that have already been released however I’m still wanting them of course! The new colors are E-6 and E-7 however E-6 appears very similar to E-2 and E-7 looks quite the same as E-4. The only real difference is the colors in the new palette seem deeper. Again, this isn’t preventing me from buying them but I was a bit disappointed the colors were a bit of a rerun!

palettes

The loose shimmer pigment looks very nice and will pair up nicely with any of the palettes or on their own!

Other bits that were released were lipglosses and nail varnish however neither are on my wish list!

At the moment I’m currently wanting all the loose powders, the two new palettes, and the mascara!

How about you?

Iris has done a break down of what Kumi Koda (don’t we all wish we looked as glam as her) is wearing in the promo photos! You can click here to read it if you wanting to do your point makeup the same as hers!

Overall, it’s a fantastic Spring Collection for Visee! I’m very excited to get this collection!

MuseTV Presents: Spotlight on Visee Cosmetics

Hey pretties! Well it’s that time again! Today’s Spotlight I’m bringing you some lovely Visee goodies to please and entice! Lucky for you I did a majority of my blogging during free time on Sunday night because I have been swamped silly this week with work!

MuseTV Presents: A Spotlight On Visee Cosmetics

You can visit the Visee website by clicking here.

Visee is pretty much a virgin brand to me as I’ve only tried two products in the entire line! The good news is it’s brought to us by our lovely friends at Kose, the Muse likey Kose cosmetics!

The palettes I’ve discussed in my video and the ones I will post pictures of in a moment have been reviewed by the masses and enjoyed by all and might the Muse add her two cents to that and say that she agrees with everything great and good that’s been said about these palettes! They are superb and well worth the cash!

The palettes will set you back a mere $19 and change (USD) and with that donation to Visee you get yourself a brilliant shimmering, sparkley packed shadow quad that’s sure to make your eyes pop and dance in delight!

The palettes are pretty much on par with T’estimo and Jill Stuart and maybe..shhh..don’t tell anyone…possibly better. If you’re really a big fan of shimmer these shadows bring that and more! The thing about these is they are not airbrushed with a thin line of shimmer as some palettes are. The shimmer in these is right down to the core! Some brands do a thin airbrushing of shimmer ontop of the shadows, which for me, is obviously to score sales. In this case you’ll find that the shadows are just as they are from first use to last use, full of fine particles of glitter and shimmery bits and pieces!

Each palette contains four shadows or darker shades can be used as a liner!

These have plenty of pigment, fantastic staying power, and go on with a near perfect finish. If by chance you are either tired in the morning or shadow retarded (nothing to be ashamed about!) these are easy enough to apply because all the colors just work together! Don’t you love palettes like that?

Sadly, like Jill Stuart, the palettes are for at home use only! Taking these with you will scratch up the lovely case they come in but hey if that doesn’t bother you, tote them away icon wink

Contrary to what I had said in my video a little light bulb went off in my head and I remembered that I had tried two of the Visee Aqua Shining Eyes. These were recommended to me by a wonderful little lady and friend that I always talk about (You probably guessed who by now);)

I randomly added these to my cart when shopping one day at Adam Beauty and I ended up just loving them! I’m not a big fan of cream shadows but props has to go to these fine shadows! They dry very quickly upon application, go on evenly without creasing, and have enough glittery bits to keep the Muse happy well into the day and night! These are around $16 USD each. A little steep in price but they work like an absolute dream! I do believe I need the rest of the colors icon wink Wish List anyone?

Overall the Muse highly recommends checking out the Jewel Crush Palettes and the Aqua Shining Eyes and if you’re hungry for more definately check out the rest of the line because I know at least several items that are on my wish list from this brilliant Japanese brand!

Visee Cosmetics can purchased for relatively good prices at Adam Beauty!

I hope you enjoyed this adventure in Visee! Stay tuned tomorrow for the next Japanese Brand Spotlight!
