Your Resource for Japanese Cosmetic Reviews

I’ve been meaning to get to this for ages and never had a chance!

If you’re by chance looking for a review on older or new Japanese Cosmetics I’ll tell you my #1 resource to find out if I should or shouldn’t purchase an item!

You’re thinking I’m going to recommend you visit Rouge Deluxe but actually I’m not. Now I visit my lovely, sweet, gorgeous friend Iris at Rouge Deluxe obsessively 5 times or more a day ( Hey I’m her biggest fan!)!

But when I’m seeking out a review on Japanese products I must deem Kathi the Queen of reviews. You probably know her from Cozy or you probably know her from MUA. She’s an absolute walking encyclopedia for all good things Japanese!

With that said I recommend you have a visit with her and go through her archives of over 200 cosmetics that she’s used, taken photos of, and reviewed (I find myself drooling whenever I go back to some of her older reviews)!

If you’re an MUA member you can check here out by clicking here.

If you’re not an MUA member you’ll have to become a member to read the reviews icon smile Being an MUA member has it’s benefits and it’s well worth your time as it’s a good source of cosmetic information!

Kathi’s a sweetie and a wonderful girl and takes time out of her busy schedule to do some incredible reviews! I dunno what I’d do without her!

So an Ode to Kathi and her great reviews on MUA!

Thanks for making the world of Japanese Cosmetics all the more brighter my friend!
