@Cosme @ Your Drugstore!

I can’t read characters but I still visit @Cosme for the pretty pictures! @Cosme is basically the same idea as MUA or Total Beauty. The website is the “it” place for up to date information about new cosmetics, collections, skincare, etc…..

It contains user created reviews for products and from what I can understand of the site it sure does a great job of keeping on the edge of Japanese cosmetic releases and more!

I ran across this gem recently on there site and I thought I’d share because I thought it was rather awesome!

From what I can understand these little machines will be installed in drugstores and basically you wave maybe?! either the product or your cell phone over it and it’ll pop the review up on your phone!

I’m not sure how it works but it’s basically something that helps with getting reviews from @Cosme to you prior to your purchase!

Why this might be exciting to you?

@Cosme contains user reviews which means that you’ll get an honest, straight forward answer about the product you’re purchasing from a girl that’s already tried it and either hated it or loved it!

How awesome would it be to head to Sephora, pick a blush out (or any other product), and get a user review on the item instantly!

I love this idea!

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.

    I think this is a brilliant idea; I’ve often put off buying products at the store simply because I haven’t read the reviews yet. This could save so much time/money/heartbreak!

    I suppose you can check the reviews at the store already if you have a blackberry or PDA with internet capabilities. Or an iPhone. Sadly, I have none of these. Time to dip into Izzy Jr’s medical funds…

    I think it is too. I’m wondering if you can wave the product across it for the review. I have an internet on my phone but I really don’t take the time out to look up reviews on it. Who has the time ya know? But if you can actually either wave the product or your phone over it and get the exact item’s reviews that’d be awesome!

    I’m not sure how it works completely and I’m hoping Iris pops up to translate it for us 😉

    I’ll buy you an iphone if you’ll just come back to me honey! Please don’t cheat on me with other bloggers you’ve no idea how it breaks my heart!

    I love throb 🙂 It’s very pretty!

    LOL I like that technology 🙂 I’d like one where I can have a face scan and just have the cosmetics magically put on with the touch of a button 😉

    A la the jetsons!
