Suqqu Creamy Glow Lipstick Moist Part IV

Several months ago, I lucked out and was able to nab Suqqu Creamy Glow Lipstick Moist in the colors 08 桃玉 (Tougyoku) and 09 柘榴石 (Zakuroseki) via Selfridges UK Online. I did mention I want all the colors in this formula, right? ^.^

Vivierskin C E Peptides

After some seven months, I finally ran out of Blossom Jeju Pink Camellia Soombi Essence Serum. Having my hands full with the little one, I didn't have time to line up the next few facial treatment choices. Instead, I just opened up my nightstand drawer and grabbed whatever that's been lying in there for a god knows how long--this 3.75mL/0.13fl. oz. dropper bottle of Vivierskin C E Peptides.

Clarins Joli Rouge Perfect Shine Sheer Lipstick

A few months ago Clarins USA had a sales event, which was all the excuses I needed to try their Joli Rouge Perfect Shine Sheer Lipstick in the older packaging at 30% off of retail (the line was revamped in late 2015 as Joli Rouge Brilliant in newer gold packaging) ^.^ There were several colors on sale and I picked three: 20 Coral Tulip, 21 Pink Orchid, and 22 Coral Dahlia.

rinRen Non-Additive Shampoo Yuzu & Ginger

Finally getting around to use the 400mL refill pouch of rinRen Non-Additive Shampoo Yuzu & Ginger. I bought this along with a different scent, Rose & Tsubaki, last year at Natural Lawson for quite a hefty price, 1,300yen for this refill pouch (or 1,900yen for the 520mL pump bottle).

Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Blooming Lip Balm

In addition to Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Summer Lip Glow 02 Sunblush, I also picked up a Pure Color Envy Blooming Lip Balm, again in hopes it bears some resemblance to the the Lip Conditioner I used and liked years ago.

Belif Creamy Cleansing Foam Moist

Now using the 30mL/1fl. oz. of Belif Creamy Cleansing Foam Moist from the Bestsellers On-the-Go Travel Kit. From this kit, I've also reviewed Moisturizing and Firming Eye Cream.  


This cleansing foam smells just like the eye cream actually, an herbal citrus-verbena scent that I like better in a cleanser than in an eye cream. It foams well, though nothing crazy like its Japanese counterpart. It rinses well also and isn't too harsh or drying, overall a decent cleanser. Glad to have tried it but will move on.

Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Summer Lip Glow

It's been a while since my last Estee Lauder product, the Advanced Night Repair Eye Serum Infusion I wasn't too impressed with. In fact, the last item I really liked was the Pure Color Crystal Lipstick in Ripe Papaya some six years ago.

Meanwhile, they kept trying to tempt me with freebies and I wasn't interested until I spotted the Summer Lip Glow from the 2017 summer Bronze Goddess Collection. There were two shades available and both are now sold out: 01 Sunlit Nude and 02 Sunblush, which I bought. While at it, I also picked up a Pure Color Envy Blooming Lip Balm. Will review this next.

Suqqu Eye Color Palette Part V

Suqqu Eye Color Palettes 01 透橙石 (Toutouseki) and 02 金紫石 (Kinshiseki) are the last of my nostalgic purchases. For the longest time, palette 01 透橙石 (Toutouseki) wasn't available on Selfridges UK online. One night I saw a brief appearance and noted how similar it was to EX-06 花瑞樹 (Hanamizuki), so I decided to pick it up for research. Right.

Lipstick Queen Eden

It's old news I love Lipstick Queen, especially the Saint formula. That said, I got into the brand rather belatedly and by the time I learned of a Saint Eden, the color has been long discontinued and no longer available anywhere, not even from E(vil)bay. So when the brand came out with a stand-alone Eden lipstick, I had to try it.

RMK Ingenious Powder Eyes N Part II

In my last RMK Ingenious Powder Eyes N post I wasn't too thrilled with the quality of these single eye shadows. However, I happened upon these limited editions EX-13 Copper Gold and EX-14 Shiny Brown Gold on Selfridges UK online and found EX-07 Shiny Burgundy on E(vil)bay for a surprisingly reasonable price. Given all three are no longer available anywhere, I figured I should give them another chance :)

Koyudo Brushes Part X

After picking up some small eyebrow brushes, I thought I was done with Koyudo. Boy was I wrong, because they went and released this wicked handsome Japanese Cherry Birch Mizume-zakura Series.

From left to right: Face Brush, Blush Brush, and Large, Medium, and Small Eye Shadow Brushes.
