How different can sharpeners be? Well, I thought so too until I tried Shiseido Sharpener #231.

Kanebo Media BB Cream | Another great product from Japan!

  Do you often break out from using BB cream? If you do, this review on Media BB Cream may be good news to you. I’ve never really had much luck with BB cream.

Majolica Majorca Brow Powder

Majolica Majorca Brow Powder for full brow lovers

  Majolica Majorca Brow Powder was sitting idle and neglected on my vanity table for god knows how many years. It was hardly touched because of its’ inability to produce defined brows – you know, the kind that gives you a sharp and distinct shape.  Things changed.
