I haven’t bought MAQUillage cosmetics in so long; it was one of the original Japanese brands that fuelled my love of high end cosmetics, and yet I struggle to find anything interesting from the brand. That’s because like many Japanese beauty brands, the range focuses on very wearable, subtle, shimmery, light textures – it’s practical, it’s perfect for the working woman, and yet it’s not that interesting for a beauty blogger to review. After such […]
I have a serious foundation problem. There I said it. I can’t stop hauling foundations; cream, stick, powder, gel… It was MAQUillage’s extremely pretty packaging that made me pay attention to their newest foundation release (and they are always releasing new base products for the different seasons) – Lighting White Powdery UV Foundation. Don’t expect the names of a lot of Japanese beauty products to make perfect sense – sometimes they just don’t. I don’t […]
Not brand new, but relatively new is MAQUillage’s Essence Cover Compact UV Foundation SPF24. I have a soft spot for compact cream foundations because I think they’re so quick and handy to use, but the majority are pretty lame- they don’t seem to last long even on my dry skin and bunch up on oily areas. MAQUillage’s OC30 is almost the right shade for me. It’s slightly – just SLIGHTLY ashy. As long as I […]
Shiseido’s MAQUillage launched the Rouge Enamel Glamour a while ago. It is a long lasting lip colour, with a lip stain on one side and a gloss on the other. MAQUillage lip products generally speaking are very strong – it is one of the best products the brand makes. This dual ended long lasting type product is rarer on the Japanese market (where everything is so sheer and watery!) so I thought it would be […]
I have a massive soft spot for MAQUillage base products and lip products – always such good quality. My latest purchase was the Maquillage Stick Foundation – eek. With the current exchange rate I paid almost £29 for this – not cheap at all. Nevertheless here it is on the model: Gorgeous visual, I love the beady thing on her head… Here is the foundation stick. Another thing I like about MAQUillage is that its […]
Shiseido’s MAQUillage range must make the most consistently stunning lipsticks and glosses, ever. It took me a while to get my paws on their newest gloss, the Perfect Lipgloss, because the exchange rate is so poor. In the end it cost me something like £16. The Perfect Lipgloss is supposed to be transfer resistant (hence the model is holding a disposable coffee cup….makes no sense, I know). Four of the shades are from the Alexander […]
Of the masses of post I got last week, here is something that just gave me make up judders! My very expensive (About £20 after exchange rate conversion) lipstick from MAQUillage – the limited edition Alexander Wang lipstick: What lies inside this slick, matte case? See after the jump!
An Alexander Wang that is – fabulous designer in collaboration with MAQUillage for Fall 2009. Do I need this? *nod nod*
