Jill Stuart Tulip Fields Mix Blush Compact N Review & Swatches

Jill Stuart Tulip Fields Mix Blush Compact N1

Jill Stuart Tulip Fields Mix Blush Compact N is one of two new shades of blush introduced with the Jill Stuart Spring 2014 Makeup Collection in Japan.

I purchased Tulip Fields because it was limited edition and also because it was the most unique of the two shades. I actually dislike Mix Blush Compact N with a passion and you likely know from my past reviews and prefer Jill Stuart Blush Blossom or the older loose powder blushes which are no longer available, sad sigh! However, Jill Stuart Tulip Fields Mix Blush Compact N was such a delightful shade I thought I’d give the formula a retry.

Natural Coverage with Shiseido InteGrate Mineral Water Foundation Liquid

Shiseido InteGrate Mineral Water Foundation Liquid is a newly revamped version of Integrate’s original Be Happy fluid mineral foundation. This recently launched in four shades in Japan and promises sheer, natural coverage in a liquid formulation that acts as a second skin. It looks like they merely changed the packaging but everything else remains the same with the formula.

I’m really into these second skin foundations lately and I hope with the changing season we’ll see more of them for Spring/Summer 2014. I think perhaps I was hopeful L’Oreal Magic Nude Liquid Powder would turn into something brilliant but it was sort of a fail.

Majolica Majorca Honey Plump Gloss Neo Review & Swatches

Majolica Majorca OR202 Honey Plump Gloss Neo

Majolica Majorca Honey Plump Gloss Neo has two new shades for Spring 2014 that just recently launched in Japan. I’m a huge fan of Majolica Majorca but in recent years I haven’t been hauling as much of it as I find some of the limited edition items a bit repetitive.

I think I have most every shade of Majolica Majorca Honey Plump Gloss Neo from the permanent collection and something just led me to grab up the newest Spring shade OR202.

I’m sure glad I did as it is quite delightful!
