Fresh Soy Face Cleanser

I thought this 20mL/0.6fl. oz. sample tube of Fresh Soy Face Cleanser would last me at least a couple of weeks but I burned through it in half that time :(

La Mer Creme de la Mer Moisturizing Cream

At long last I finished my little 7mL/0.24oz. jar of La Mer Creme de la Mer Moisturizing Cream, which I'd started using since last spring! This was a deluxe sample from the Saks 5th Avenue's holiday 2013 GWP, quite a while ago.

Addiction Ready To Wear Eye Palette Part II

After swatching Addiction Ready To Wear Eye Palette in 05 Departure, I knew I had to pick up 06 Es Paradis also. Thank goodness I did, because some time in early September, these palettes disappeared from Addiction's website. They haven't returned since, which makes me thing they've been discontinued. They weren't available at the department store counters, and I just checked Rakuten JP and didn't see any there either. Only a couple are currently listed on e(vil)bay at a marked up price ($90-105!).

Beauty Protector Finishing Powder SPF50+ PA+++

Last of my new sun powder discovery is this 17g jar of Beauty Protector Finishing Powder SPF50+ PA+++. Being a translucent finishing powder, there's no color choice, but it's available in a smaller 6g jar for those who wants to sample first before committing.

Canmake Lip & Cheek Gel SPF24 PA+ Part II

A few weeks before leaving Tokyo, I spotted a new Canmake Lip & Cheek Gel at the local drugstore, which means I now have 2 colors to make a post worth your while: 05 Cherry Fromage and 06 Dark Plum Sugar.

Boscia Sake Balm

Last winter, during one of Boscia's generous GWP promos I placed an order for a few things I'd always been curious about: this 50g/1.75oz jar Sake Balm and Sake Treatment Water, which I'll review next.

Sake-based or sake-infused skincare has been around in Japan for a long time, and within the past couple of years it's enjoying a revival in popularity. This Sake line is Boscia's effort to bring the bandwagon to North America, at least in my humble opinion anyway.

Lunasol Feathery Smoky Eyes

Ever since swatching this Lunasol Feathery Smoky Eyes in the Shinjuku Isetan LE EX01 Feathery Gold, I've been itching to get to it. Finally, some four months later, which I suppose is still better than years...

Opera Sheer Lip Color

Back in the late spring, I saw an ad for these Opera Sheer Lip Color on the metro, and like an idiot I promptly went online and bought some to try.

Basic 01 Pure Red (white tube), and Color 101 Red and 104 Pure Coral (pink tubes). All pictures taken in natural light without flash.

Afternoon Tea at the Oriental Lounge, Mandarin Oriental Tokyo Part IV

We had our last session of afternoon tea at the Oriental Lounge of Mandarin Oriental Tokyo in June. Four sittings and each was as spectacular as the last. No disappointments, no repeats, always something different and unique, and delicious. Gosh I love the tea service here, I really do. The next time we go back to Tokyo, this is where I'll be camping out ^.^

Lunasol Stain Color Lips Part III

I really enjoyed my most recent Lunasol Stain Color Lips additions, so I went back for even more: EX01 Cool Fuchsia from 2015 summer (Citrine sold me on this one...) and EX04 Soft Bordeaux from 2015 fall collections, because the LE colors seem to have a bit of translucency that's absent from the regular lineup.
