If you’re currently shopping BB Creams for Summer wear might I direct you towards Canmake Perfect Serum BB Cream? Canmake Perfect Serum BB Cream is available in two shades with a whooping SPF 50 built right in.
Canmake is a lower end, budget Japanese cosmetic brand and typically I dislike Japanese BB Creams with a passion as most are too yellow for my skin and they typically have a super thin formula when compared to the creamier, richer texture of Korean ones.
However, Canmake definitely won my heart with this. I’ve been using it since it launched, probably a year or so ago? And it’s one of my favorite BB Creams from Japan.

Majolica Majorca Cream de Cheek Liquid Blush were launched in four shades last year but I never got a chance to review them and that’s a shame because they are a fantastic product.
Although available for a limited time they are still very easy to get from a variety of online shops. These are a liquid blush the likes of which has never been done before by Majolica Majorca.

KATE’s new nifty Brightening Makeup Base for Cover might be something to pick up if you suffer from duller skin and have a need for a brighter appearance.
This creamy yellow base can be used to prep with prior to foundation application and brightens up skin while easing dullness.

Lavshuca recently introduced a range of eyeshadow singles entitled Candy Pop. Along with this release Lavshuca Eye Base Primer makes an appearance in two different shades (pink and beige) which I decided I might as well try out.
I really don’t need another base at the moment but the cute pink tin was partially responsible for my spontaneous purchase, come on, cut me a break, you know I can’t resist cute packaging.
If you already own KATE Eyeshadow Base Primer you probably don’t need the Lavshuca Eye Base however, I will say that it actually seemed to perform a little better than the KATE formula. Of course, I might be just imaging that as KATE and Lavshuca are sister brands created by the same parent company, Kanebo.

I wanna accuse Lavshuca Flower Syrup Gloss of not turning my everyday life into a wonderland.
According to the package, “As you put on this makeup, your everyday life turns into a wonderland in an instant”.
LIES all LIES!
The wonderland didn’t happen…where is my damn wonderland…?!
Ha…no seriously, that really is what the packaging says. I love Japanese makeup!
Majolica Majorca Lash Expander Edge Meister Mascara is a liquid lengthening mascara lengthens and separates lashes with a glossy black formula.
As a long TIME fan of Majolica Majorca Lash Expander Mascara I must say that I sort of fell off the bandwagon. It used to be my HG (holy grail) mascara for a very long time but too many revisions to the formula was making my head spin a little bit so I found other mascaras to love. Gosh, I hate how that sounds but indeed it happened.
Recently, I decided I’d give the Lash Expander Edge Meister Mascara formula a try and even though I dislike fiber mascaras it seemed like a good idea at the time.
Here are my thoughts!
Lavshuca Jelly Pot Essence is probably one of the best lip products I’ve run across lately outside of the new Hourglass Cosmetics No 28 Lip Treatment Oil that just released.
This little pot of joy was launched with the Lavshuca Spring 2013 Collection and I just recently got my grubby little hands all over it.
Take a look.
I’m looking forward to the Jill Stuart Jelly Blush release for Summer 2013. These cream blushes launch in Japan this week (April 25th) and quite remind me of Jill Stuart’s Jelly Eye Color and I suspect they might be a very similar jelly-like mousse texture.
I’m looking forward to trying them out.

I’m trying to recall when Lunasol launched their Sheery Glossy Eyes Eyeshadow. I believe it was Fall 2012 but feel free to correct me if not. Lunasol Sheer Glossy Eyes launched in four, limited edition shades and I’ve been sitting on one for a while now. Why I haven’t reviewed it earlier is beyond me but just recently I told myself to look through my photo archives for the pictures of it and get to reviewing it.
So here I am…
And here are my thoughts on Sheer Glossy Eyes.
KATE Jewelry Mode Eyes Palettes launched a bit ago but I never actually reviewed them. I fear Japanese brands sometimes have repetitive colors in new eyeshadow palettes which somehow I’ve grown out of. I mean I get excited when KATE does a new palette but typically they release that new palette in the same shades over and over again so it starts to feel like the same exact thing to me.
Can’t believe I just said that as I’m all about KATE Eyeshadow but it is true. Lavshuca is guilty of similiar.
KATE is one (only) of Kanebo’s edger brands. It’s marked with a goth-y feel but the actual makeup is very tame and natural. Jewelry Mode Eyes is a simpler palette compared to some of KATE’s normal range of eyeshadow palettes as it contains merely three shades versus five. Honestly, as much as I love a range of shades to play with I find Jewelry Mode Eyes simplifies eyeshadow application which I’m cool with. Especially in the morning when I just don’t have the time or the patience to use five different eyeshadow shades in a single look.
