Kanebo Coffret D’or New Dec 08 Lipsticks

kanebo-coffret-d-or-.jpg

Kanebo’s Coffret D’or replaced the lovely T’estimo range about a year ago – I always thought that T’estimo was a great range, so was a bit sad to see it go. Coffret D’or, although I have nothing against it hasn’t quite captured my imagination – I think it’s quite similar to Shiseido’s upmarket MAQUillage – sleek, glossy, elegant but not outrageously expensive like SKII or Cle De Peau, however I prefer MAQUillage. Anyway – I […]

I am just beginning to catch up on haulage pics…bear with me, there are loads and loads of good reviews and things coming up! I love gel and cream eyeshadows very much – so I picked up four of these KATE gel shadows. KATE is not the most glam of brands but the product quality, when its good, is amazing. BR1, BR2, GY1 and GD1. GD1 – Is a soft shimmer yellowy gold nice as […]

Lavshuca Powder Foundation

I am a fan of liquid foundations over powder, since I hate the dry cakey look – but Japanese powder foundations covered with a base normally do a pretty damn good job. I saw the Lavshuca combo and decided to give it a go! I also tried the matching base, but it is just a tidgy bottle you need to shake before use: Base: A light beige colour – the texture is very watery: The […]

Tiffa Eyeliner, Base and Mascara

Tiffa is a Kanebo Brand that I have largely ignored until I saw a review of the Base on Vanessa’s blog. The base was a spidery black thing – urgh! Disgusted but fascinated at the same time, I ordered this prodct from Adambeaty, and the Mascara to go with it (lengthening natch) and two of the new eyeliner/sparkly mascara combos. Well the base and mascara are great! they are not really volumising (although there is […]

Happy Day After Valentines Day!

Did everyone have a good day? I don’t see the big deal sometimes *moaning already?!* – but I am sure I made a bigger deal of it when I was looking for a boyfriend but when you’re in comfortable coupledom, I’m more of a – ‘Leave the flowers, let’s go and stuff our faces instead’, kinda gal. Valentine’s is in my I’m-not-that-interested holiday, along with Pancake Day, Take your child to work day and Uncle’s […]

Coffret D’or Palette Review

Kanebo got rid of my beloved T’estimo and replaced it with Coffret D’or. I haven’t fallen madly in love with the brand so far, although the line looks quite sophistacated. I think the items are a little more expensive than T’estimo, also, T’estimo had some lovely, unusal palette combos. Anyhow, here is the diamante studded case: I chose palette 02 (blue) since the other three did not attract me – they were a little dull. […]

Where to buy your Japanese Cosmetics?!

Lucky people who have family and friends in the East can of course get them to purchase whatever their heart desires and have it sent over to them, but what about those who don’t have the contacts but love Japanese/Asian brands? There are a few main websites (all of which I have used) that sell brands Asian brands, like Kanebo, Shiseido, Majolica Majorca, Lavshuca, Ettusais, Beaute De Kose, Fancl, Jill Stuart, Sonia Rykiel etc. so […]
