Shiseido SpotCover Foundation Review

Ok, so you need coverage. You need to conceal those dark circles, mask that evil pimple popping up on your chin, and rid yourself of possible acne scarring. No worries, the Muse is on the case with Shiseido SpotCover Foundation.

Able to leap tall buildings in a single bound while concealing all your problem areas Shiseido SpotCover Foundation is exactly what the Muse wanted and hoped for from Erase Paste. Shiseido SpotCover Foundation is from the FT Shiseido line of products available in Japanese drugstores. This branch of Shiseido is not available within the US but can be located on a few online shops.

Shiseido SpotCover Foundation is a multitasking product for concealing or as a base makeup item. It’s extremely thick and very pigmented. If you have alot to hide this would be your go to product for making your skin look beautiful again.

For concealing under eye circles it works a treat but it’s a tad too heavy. It’s heavily pigmented so it pretty much covers everything up, I imagine it could possibly cover tattoos with proper blending skills. Although it works incredible under my eyes I did notice it settled into fine lines easily and dried out my eyes a tiny bit. In it’s defense I will say my eyes are getting to a point where I have to be extra careful what I use under them due to my age (yes the Muse is fairly old now). The formula is an interesting combination of being creamy and slightly whipped. It blends well enough when using on the face although a tiny little bit goes a very long way. I can’t stress enough how very thick this so if you do indulge please use caution during application.

The product retails in Japan for 1,200 yen but I discovered it for a nice deal on my favorite site iMomoko for $14.99 USD so that was quite a good deal. Rather than yammer to friends in Japan to get it for me I just dished out the $14.99 as that’s a rather good price and not too heavily jacked up from retail.

The Muse thinks you’d like this if:

  • You love thick, heavy foundations and concealers.
  • You have alot to hide and you need a pigmented foundation/concealer to hide it all.

I’d like to love this product but the thickness of the formula prevents me from really enjoying it as it’s a tad too much. I’m going to revisit it though over the next few weeks and see if end up loving it. Definitely a good find for anyone who desires full on coverage.

Beauty Secrets: Shiseido Facial Cloth

Know what this is?

Picture+019

Some of you may know and some of you may not know this…but the Muse deems it her duty to tell you for the first time or to remind you if you already know that Shiseido has big old packs of awesome facial cloth for $9 USD. It’s not the best facial cloth around but it’s the best one you’ll find in the US and the price is rather nice as well.

Picture+020

Facial Cloth is great for removing eye makeup or makeup in general, applying toner, etc…it’s particularly nice because it’s a generous size, very soft, doesn’t leaves blobs of cotton all over your face, and is nice and thick. Yes, you can get pretty decent cotton in a drugstore with quite a cheap price but I actually think that the Shiseido is well worth picking it up since it has around 150 pieces of more in the bag and is such a generous size. Your local counter carries facial cotton but you probably never knew since they don’t actually “advertise it”. Normally a bag lasts me for 5-6 months with daily use. If I’m really cheaping it up I can go even longer by using one cloth for both eyes, they are so big you can easily do so!

So head to your local Shiseido counter and nab a bag for yourself! Great price and a ton of cotton to aid you in getting all your eye makeup swept away!

What are your fav facial cottons?

Stash Spotlight: Majolica Majorca Majolook Palettes

untitled

I have a serious disease when it comes to collecting, hoarding, and stashing away crazy amounts of Majolica Majorca Majolook Palettes.

Majolica+Majorca+Majolook+12

Even the ones that suck somehow end up in my arsenal of insanity. Is it a sin to collect palettes I don’t even use? Am I going to hell?

I think I pretty much have ever Majolica Majorca Majolook Palette released over the course of the past few years. Many people will beg to to say that Majolook palettes aren’t as good as Majorca Majolica singles or not as great as many other releases but honestly about 85% of the ones I have, I absolutely adore.

The colors always work well together, the liner that comes with some of them is pretty decent quality, and I kinda dig the compact palettes!

Hope you enjoy the photos of my sickness! I even included some of the Majolica Majorca Majewel Palettes, my flavorites!

How about you?

Love MJ?

Love the palettes?

Majorca Majolica Girly Erotica

Majolica Majorca Girly Erotica is up and active on the MJ website!

I LOVE the new story! The goth element plus the little spider made me giddy! I think it’s one of the simpler stories they have done on the site as there is nothing to “find” and everything is right there to click on, open, and view.

Majorca+Majolica+Girly+Erotica+8

Nice!

I also noticed they now have a great option as soon as the first page loads which allows you to click a link and this opens the entire general catalog of items available. Great feature.

Majorca+Majolica+Girly+Erotica+5

Love the goth element, love the spider, but the collection is meh at best! Pretty disappointed about the lack of items available but I’ll survive.

GWP? Cutes! Love me some spiders!

Majolica Majorca Lash Expander Frame Plus is the brand new mascara releasing for Spring which I will pick up for sure.

Also available are two new Majolica Majorca Honey Plump Glosses and finally Majolica Majorca Pressed Pore Cover Face Powder.

Spidey nails!

Majorca+Majolica+Girly+Erotica+9

So you can obviously why I’m lacking excitement. I’ll be snatching up the mascara and I’m debating on the powder as I have several powders from MJ already and I’ll def skip the Honey Plump Glosses as I have at least six to get through already. Very disappointed at the lack of palettes or lack of virtually anything for the eyes aside from the mascara.

It’s really a bare minimal collection and I’m a tiny bit shocked they didn’t go further with it.

Economy do you think?

Hmmmm…the Muse is sad. I need a hug!

If you’re interested in reading the story you can check back to see if the Singapore site updates as that will be in English. At the moment the I am Gorgeous promo is still live so you’ll have to see in a few weeks if it changes.

Musings of the Day: Leaves It!

qotd

This is a hard one because the Muse has never found a brand of cosmetic that she didn’t like but she thought hard about it and here are a few that kinda sorta don’t tickle my fancy!

  • Sephora Brand

We all know and love Sephora but the Muse doesn’t feel any great love for the Sephora brand cosmetics. I’ve purchased a few bits and pieces but I’m always somewhat disappointed with whatever I buy and honestly for the quality I think it’s a tad bit over priced.

  • Laura Mercier

Heck I love Laura! I think the Laura Mercier Flawless Face Kit was incredible! However, I do visit the counter and just pass by on a majority of the offerings. I find it a tiny bit boring in all honesty….

  • Shiseido

I bow to the gods of Shiseido! But did you ever notice a majority of my Shiseido collection is from branch off brands within Japan such as Majorca Majolica? I never really indulge my need for Shiseido at my local counter. I dunno why but I really never found anything that Shiseido US offers that I absolutely must have aside from their killer face cotton!

I’m trying to think of more but hells knows this is a tough question for the Muse who loves just about anything and everything about cosmetics!

How about you? Which brands just don’t interest you!

Tell the Muse!
