KATE Stick Concealer Review & Swatches

KATE is a Japanese line of cosmetics sold under the Kanebo brand name. With brands like Lavshuca under their belt I’d say that KATE proves the more edgy in the Kanebo family with a range of bolder shades of color.

They recently introduced a few new concealers and revised formulas of concealers to their catalog, well, perhaps not that recently as its been several months since I purchased some of the new items.

Let’s take a look at the KATE Stick Concealer.

Shiseido Anessa Face Sunscreen BB Cream

Shiseido Anessa is one my absolute favorite products for Summer fun in the sun. It offers great protection at SPF 50 and wears quite well under extreme conditions such as a day at the beach or the pool.

I’m delighted that they have a brand new BB Cream that recently launched in Japan. This is available in two shade and offers an SPF 50 as well.

I’m quite eager to get my hands on it so expect a review soon. I’m having a friend who lives Tokyo grab me one up but keep your eyes on Adambeauty.com as I’m sure he’ll get it shortly at a very reasonable price.

Visit www.shiseido.co.jp if you’d like to explore the Anessa Collection.

Jill Stuart Jelly Eye Color N 18 Bird Flutter Review & Swatches

Although I’ve reviewed Jill Stuart Jelly Eye Color a few times already, I thought I’d haul out the very delightful, limited edition shade, Bird Flutter, for a swatch and a play today.

I’m obsessed with all things coral and peach particularly when Spring and Summer hit and this is a lovely shade of peachy coral that shouldn’t be missed. This shade is also one of the more vibrant ones I’ve seen in this range since the Jelly Eye Colors normally favor lighters shades of gold, pink, etc…

Take a look!

Lunasol Glowing Powder Cheeks Review & Swatches

I feel like I don’t have nearly enough golden peach shades in my makeup life like Tarte’s Glisten.

Isn’t that an amazing shade of glowing blush?

With that note in mind I asked a friend of mine who lives in Tokyo to purchase me Lunasol Glowing Powder Cheeks, a new glowing blush from Lunasol that promises a radiant finish.

The interesting packaging, allure of the color and promise of radiance were all key selling points plus the Lunasol name on the box makes this one a tempting little purchase.

Take a look!
