Cezanne Natural Cheek N AUTUMN COLOR 16 Cassis Rose Review

Cezanne Natural Cheek N AUTUMN COLOR 16 Cassis Rose Review:

Cezanne is a major drugstore cosmetics brand in Japan, and is known for their wide variety of high-quality makeup products. With simple but extremely compact casing showcasing a huge range of colors in their blushers, eyeshadows, and more, who could resist?

I ended up taking home the Cezanne Natural Cheek N in #16 Cassis Rose which is the perfect autumn and winter shade of blush. To be honest, I don’t have high expectations for blushers — they just need to stay put for when my makeup’s on — but Cezanne really blew me away with this product!

[REVIEW] Minon Amino Moist Clear Wash Powder

Minon Amino Moist Clear Wash Powder Review

Minon Amino Moist Clear Wash Powder Review:

Developed by the pharmaceutical company, Daiichi Sankyo Healthcare, the Minon Amino Moist product line is a skincare brand targeted towards those with dry and/or sensitive skin. To be completely honest, this brand wasn’t on my radar at all until I was searching for powder cleansers to travel with and found it for cheap on a local reselling platform.

Looking up the product and thus brand guide, it was intriguing to find out that the brand focuses on developing skincare focused on amino acids to aid in improving the skin’s moisture barrier overtime. However, I must say that the little @cosme sticker on this product’s image thumbnails while googling definitely helped in sealing the quick purchase (though, I’m still not so sure in which year it got into the highly esteemed rankings).

[REVIEW] FLOWFUSHI 38ºC Lip Treatment +1ºC Natural Baby Pink

FLOWFUSHI 38ºC Lip Treatment +1ºC Natural Baby Pink Review

FLOWFUSHI 38ºC Lip Treatment +1ºC Natural Baby Pink Review:

Winter is coming, and with that brings cold and dry weather — the worst possible combination that is guaranteed to wreak havoc on my already constantly-dry lips.

During these months, I put away almost all my lip makeup — there’s no point in wearing lipstick when it’s only going to come off in patches of dry lip skin (ew!) by midday. Don’t even get me started on re-application; there’s no way that will go smoothly (both literally and figuratively).

The FLOWFUSHI 38ºC Lip Treatment has been highly raved about as an effective treatment that also doubles as a tinted gloss to give a bit of oomph to the lips. It has an interesting concept — basing its entire line of these lip products on temperature as well as focusing on bacteria on the skin to enhance lip color.

How did it fare?

Opera Lip Tint 01 Red Review

Opera Lip Tint 01 Red Review:

Having placed first in both the well-respected 2017 Cosme Best Cosmetics Awards Mid-Year and Year-End in the lip tint category, it’s clear that Opera is doing something amazing with their lip tints. Everywhere you go in Japan, you will find people pulling out these lip tints for touch ups. A friend that I talked had gone through four of these already!

Sheer lip tints are perfect for an everyday look because of their ease of application without the compromise of color. The Opera Lip Tints also promise lasting wear without the stickiness or dryness that lip tints are often prone to.

Is this too good to be true?

Opera Sheer Lip Color N 22 Natural Pink N Review

Opera Sheer Lip Color N 22 Natural Pink N Review:

Japanese lip products are famed for their great application and moisturizing properties, and Opera in particular has been one of the must-have brands among the sea of unending lip tints, lipsticks, and liquid lipsticks.

Their Sheer Lip Color is perhaps lesser known than their famed Lip Tint, however, that absolutely does not speak to the quality and performance of the former.

So how does it fare?

[REVIEW] MITOMO Uruuru Soy Bean Essence Mask

MITOMO Uruuru Soy Bean Essence Mask Review

MITOMO Uruuru Soy Bean Essence Mask Review:

Well, have you ever heard this brand MITOMO? Just ask, because I have never heard this brand before. Based on what I read, MITOMO is a brand from Japan and surprisingly it has its own website, quite proves its credibility. However, I didn’t buy this product in Japan but during my holiday trip in Taiwan. MITOMO sheet mask caught my attention because of its simple yet minimalist packaging, and after reading further, I found no harmful ingredients in it. There are various ranges of MITOMO sheet masks; soy bean, wine, snail, etc. I chose soy bean since I rarely found a soy bean variant in other sheet masks’ brand

Shiseido Senka Perfect White Clay Cleansing Foam Review

Shiseido Senka Perfect White Clay Cleansing Foam Review:

Well, this brand SENKA is very popular these days! I’ve seen a lot of people opened pre-order SENKA from Malaysia, Japan, and Singapore. However, you may notice that the variant I’m using is not THAT famous SENKA variant.

I use SENKA Perfect White Clay while the popular one is SENKA Perfect Whip. SENKA Perfect Whip is said to be very effective and does its claim very well despite the economical price. So, will SENKA Perfect White Clay just be a dead duck compared to its sibling or not?

Kikumasamune Sake Skin Lotion High Moist Review

Kikumasamune Sake Skin Lotion High Moist Review:

It is said that in the past, Geisha used the leftover sake of their clients as a beauty product, to soften and brighten their skin tone.

The company that produces this lotion is the Kiku-Masamune Sake Brewing Co., Ltd., a very popular sake company in Japan founded in 1659. According to the company, sake has beneficial effects for the skin, giving the skin luster and preventing aging. This lotion, released in 2013 contains not only sake, but a pretty impressive list of ingredients.

After I found out about this product, I knew I had to have it.

Sake? On my skin? Let’s see how it went.

Isehan Kiss Me Heroine Make Smooth Liquid Eyeliner Super Keep 02 Bitter Brown Review

Isehan Kiss Me Heroine Make Smooth Liquid Eyeliner Super Keep 02 Bitter Brown Review:

For the most part, I’m more of a mascara person, so I never was one for the whole strong jet black cat eye look as more often than not, it’d obscure the rest of my eye makeup and make my lashes look less prominent. However, I found a compromise for when I did want some eye makeup exaggeration: brown eyeliner.

Less intense, less prone to visually blocking out my naturally black lashes, and definitely more suitable for “soft looks” or standalone wear without coming off “too strong”. And well, since I trust Heroine Make with my mascara needs, I decided, why not give their eyeliner a go, too?
