Lavshuca Candy Pop Eye Base Review & Swatches

Lavshuca Eye Base

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.

Take a peek!


Lavshuca Flower Syrup Gloss Review & Swatches

Lavshuca Flower Syrup Gloss Spring 2013

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”.


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 Review

Majolica Majorca Lash Expander Edge Meister Mascara

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 Review & Swatches

Lavshuca Jelly Pot Essence Spring 2013

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.


Jill Stuart Jelly Blush for Summer 2013

Jill Stuart Jelly Blush Summer 2013

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.

Take a look!
