Kao Biore Aqua Rich Watery BB Launches in Japan

Kao Biore Aqua Rich Watery BB

I’m happy to report Kao has launched their next generation Aqua Rich Watery product in the form of a BB Cream. Biore Aqua Rich Watery BB contains the same great formula as the original Aqua Rich Watery SPF 50 which has a mousse-like texture and a moisturizing finish but also now acts as BB Cream for giving skin a brighter appearance on application.

I love the idea of it still containing a generous SPF 50 as well as being tinted to even out skin tone and to act as a tinted moisturizer of sorts. Even if it doesn’t provide the same great benefits as a regular BB Cream I’m still interested in trying it out as I use and love the original sunscreen only version.

This retails for $7-$10 in Japan so expect to pay $14.99 and upwards when it reaches online shops.

I’ll be reviewing it shortly.

If you tried it feel free to share your thoughts!

Keep your eyes on AlphabeautyUK (not affiliated) on E-bay as I’m sure she’ll be getting it shortly!

Vibrant color, a gorgeous moisturizing texture that slides onto lips like silk stockings, and an incredible wear make these a must have Spring addition to your makeup stash.

Sephora Pastel Pop Jumbo Glossy Lip Pencil Glossy Orange

Sephora has introduced their own line of Jumbo Glossy Lip Pencils with their new Pastel Pop Spring 2013 Collection. Best part about these is they are near to drugstore brand prices at ten bucks a piece.

Nice right?

They are sadly limited edition though and come in a smaller variety of shades (a mere three le sigh!) but you might want to pick them up before they disappear.

Maybelline Coral Crush Baby Lips  Lip Balm

Maybelline Baby Lips Moisturizing Lip Balm is available in five new, limited edition shades for Spring. I recently picked up the Coral Crush Baby Lips Balm as I can’t resist anything in coral, orange, or peach (you know my addiction well don’t you?).
