Lunasol Glowing Powder Cheeks Pure Coral Swatches

Lunasol Glowing Powder Cheeks Pure Coral Swatches 1

Lunasol has introduced two new boxed powders a la Benefit for Spring 2012.

Glowing Powder Cheeks is available in a coral and pink version and launched in Japan just recently. I was intrigued by these as they sported the same packaging as Benefit plus the “glowing” sold me as I assumed they have a gorgeous shimmer or perhaps a glowing, highlighted finished.

Take a look!

Koh Gen Do Cleansing Spa Water Review

Koh Gen Do Cleansing Spa Water 1

I’m seeing quite a few cleansing waters released at the moment. They aren’t a hugely popular product in the US but they do decently well in the Asian market. One in particular that’s cult favorite is Mandom Cleansing Water. I reviewed this quite a few years ago on Musings and its kinda my lazy girl makeup remover for when I’m really not up for the huge nightly regime to get my makeup off.

Cleansing waters are fairly nice because they are not only simple and to the point for makeup removal but most do a damn good job tackling waterproof makeup while still remaining gentle enough not to strip skin or dry it out. Of course, this is from my experience using Asian ones, I haven’t really used any in the US.

Koh Gen Do Cleansing Spa Water happened across my desk a few weeks ago and I’m happy to say I’m enjoying it immensely.

Jump!

Juju Cosmetics Aqua Moist Hyaluronic Acid Eye Cream Review

Juju Cosmetics Aqua Moist Hyaluronic Acid Eye Cream 1

Hadalabo is a very, very popular collection of skincare products available in Japan. I’ve always felt like Juju Cosmetics Aqua Moist Collection is kinda a copycat of the line.

Juju Cosmetics Aqua Moist Hyaluronic Acid Eye Cream recently caught my eye and I strayed from Hadalabo temporarily while I checked out this one.

Here are a few of my thoughts!

Lavshuca Sweet Up Cheeks Set Review, Swatches, Photos

Lavshuca Sweet Up Cheeks Set 1

Lavshuca is one of several brands under Kanebo. The brand is set apart by its princess-y packaging. I’ve always been a rather big fan of the brand but some of the product releases became repetitive so I hadn’t purchased anything from the brand in a while. I try not to miss their LE, special releases for the Holidays although they have changed considerably in recent years from really pretty palettes to coffrets that focus on eyes or lips, etc….

This year, their “coffret” spotlights cheeks with a cute set that includes a blusher and kabuki.
