The Muse’s Japanese Brand Wish List

Now that the Muse has taken care of a majority of the collections here in the states she’s ready to pursue her Japanese Brand Wish List!

I really want to hear all about what you guys are lemming from Japan this year 😉

Here’s what I am wanting:

The two new limited edition Christmas palettes from Lavshuca are so definitely on my wish list! The Japanese take all the extra steps to make a palette perfect in my opinion and in this case I’ll explain how. This palette is cute right? But are you thinking that maybe it’ll be a bit messy having eyes and lips in one place? That’s how the Muse’s mind works and when I originally seen this I was thinking oh wow love it, cute, but it’s going to be messy 🙁

Have no fear the palette is completely organized and mess free. The lip side of the palette has a clear plastic hinge that lifts up for application and flips down when not in use. Tell me is this mess free and awesome? The Muse loves the Japanese and bows to their superiority in making all things cosmetic perfect 😉

These retail for about $15 each and can be seen on the Lavshuca website!

They are most definitely on the Muse’s wish list!

The two Elegance Christmas Coffrets are on my wish list as well! Each kit comes with a gorgeous eyeshadow, blush, lipgloss, and case! These are a bit steep at about $78 each but I’m really loving the look of the eyeshadows in these kits! These are on the Muse’s “maybe” wish list! The only thing preventing me at this point of purchasing both is the price tag!

Kesalan Patharan’s My Dear X-Mas Coffrets are also on my wish list. Dear Dream seems somewhat more appealing to me than Dear Wish so it may come down to purchasing just one of these! Each Set is $65 USD (Can anyone verify the price for me in Singapore please?).

Anna Sui’s Christmas collection is delightful and I’m lemming just about all of it! On my wish list are the two separate makeup kits which include a pouch, gloss, and blush (peach and pink color options), the loose powder glitter, and the glitter mascara overcoat are all on my wish list!

Anna Sui Christmas Set $45 Each USD

Anna Sui Glitter Mascara Overcoat $25 Each USD

Anna Sui Loose Gitter Powder $18 Each USD

I’m sure there are more items that will pop up and make their way onto my wish list but for now these are the items I’m really wanting!

I’m eagerly awaiting Majorica Majolica’s website update because I know I most definately want all of the Christmas items that will be introduced!

The Muse will update you as her list gets longer and her wallet continues screaming in absolute agonizing pain!

Want any of these items?
Something else on your Japanese Cosmetic Wish List?

Tell the Muse all about it!


About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    Hi Muse,

    The Lavshuca is on my wishlist. Smart to have the little plastic protector for the lippies. I was wondering about that.

    Saks is having their fall F&F event! I am now just deciding if I can’t live without anything…

    Huges & Cheers!

    oops my last comment disappeared?

    anyway 🙂

    hey bets 🙂

    Really a clever idea!

    I know *groan*

    I’m staying away from saks 🙂

    Is it 15% or 20%?

    it was unconfirmed last I checked!

    Hi Muse,

    It’s 15% off beauty and 20% off other items in the store. I am trying to convincen myself that I really don’t need anything else.

    Hugs & Cheers!

  • the Muse

    hey Bets 🙂

    Ohhh well 20% is good for regular bits!

    I don’t need anything either. I need to calm down! It’s not even Christmas and I’m already nuts 😉

    I want Lavshuca too! But even with the plastic cover for the lip side, I’m afraid it’ll be messy. Let you know once I do my list up! 😉

  • the Muse

    hey serene
    they are on my list too for sure 🙂

    I think you’re right. It’ll save the lippie from getting messy but the palette will still be somewhat dusty after use 😉

    We just have to be careful when applying 😛

    Okay so this just makes me wanna travel to Japan, lol! I have some friends who play in punkbands who often tours over there… but I guess the guys are not to keen on going shopping for cosmetics when they’re on tour (or ever, lol)!

  • the Muse

    lol! I totally hear you! I’d travel there right now if I could get the time away 😉

    Damn guys why can’t they be into cosmetics like us?!
