Anessa Whitening Essence Facial UV Sunscreen SPF50+ PA++++

I inherited this 40g tube of Anessa Whitening Essence Facial UV Sunscreen SPF50+ PA++++ from my gal pal J. She bought it a couple of years ago (it's been discontinued as of 2017), tried it, didn't like it, and passed it on to me. Even then, it took me until now to get to it, so suffice to say this review is super late and useless =.=", but I'm posting it anyway since this blog functions more like a product diary than anything else.

Youth to the People Superberry Hydrate and Glow Oil

After finishing Laneige Water Bank Essence (which was blah and wasn't all that great), I moved on to this 3.7mL/0.125fl. oz. dropper bottle of Youth to the People Superberry Hydrate and Glow Oil. This was another item from a different Sephora PLAY! SMARTS box that caught my eyes in the winter of 2018, Superfoods: Feed Your Face.

Estee Lauder Nutritious Vitality8 Radiant Eye Jelly

Been using the 15mL/0.5oz. full size jar of Estee Lauder Nutritious Vitality8 Radiant Eye Jelly (now Nutritious Super-Pomegranate Radiant Energy Eye Jelly) for a few weeks now so here's a review for it.

Origins Ginzing Energy-Boosting Gel Moisturizer

Hubby's almost done with this 15mL/0.5fl. oz. tube of Origins Ginzing Energy-Boosting Gel Moisturizer so here's a quick post.

The short of it is: he doesn't like it. The moisturizer itself is lightweight and decently moisturizing but he's really put off with the strong scent. I tried the Ginzing Refreshing Eye Cream and recall it had a zesty citrus orange scent but it wasn't anything overpowering. This Gel Moisturizer has the same scent, only a lot stronger, hence hubby's annoyance. He said it feels like slathering on orange candy every night after the shower. Having tried this on a few times myself, I admit he's right. The scent is just too strong. Will not purchase full size.

RMK Color Pop Lipstick

Last year, another collection that drew my interest was RMK's spring-summer Color Dance Collection, mainly because there were dots. Dotted prints on the packaging, and dots pressed into the eye shadows, powder blushes, and lipsticks. Too bad I didn't like any of the eye shadow duos. Within these past few years, I've been using cream/gel cheek colors almost exclusively. But the lipsticks? Sold. I love dots ^.^

The Color Pop Lipsticks were available in four colors. The first two,  01 Turn the Music and 02 Glamorous Blonde, were much sheerer. The latter two, 03 Cocktail Party and 04 Happy Mind, were better pigmented but still looked translucent enough, so I went with those two.

Dazzshop Rouge The Fusionist

Dazzshop is another new kid on the block (as of 2018 I think...), and an edgy one at that, if a bit too edgy for me. If anything, this brand strikes me as trying too hard ^.^" I've been seeing them all over Insta but it wasn't until last year that a couple of new lippie releases for Rouge The Fusionist caught my eyes, namely the colors 17 Sunny Code and 18 Bonita Seduccion, and while at it I also picked up 10 Daytime Killer.

Rimmel Lasting Finish Tint Lip

Last spring, I spotted these Rimmel Lasting Finish Tint Lip on Insta and was immediately intrigued. After all, they looked like dupes of Opera Lip Tint, of which I'm a fan. At 1,300yen each, the Rimmel ones are just a little cheaper than Opera, so I picked up three colors to try: 001 True Red, 003 Mandarin Orange, and 006 Dark Plum.

DHC Olive Concentrated Cleansing Oil

Half way through this 150mL/5fl. oz. pump bottle of DHC Olive Concentrated Cleansing Oil so here's a quick post. I first spotted it in the fall of 2018 (I can't believe "last year" now refers to 2019!!) and picked up a bottle to try along with a bunch of Lip Creams in LE Hello Kitty packaging.

Sisley Ecological Compound Emulsion

Finished up this 4mL/0.13fl. oz. tube of Sisley Ecological Compound Emulsion several weeks ago but somehow left this post in the draft folder and never published it. Woops! This was from the super generous swap package with Caty last winter (thank you, Caty!).

Shiseido Waso Fresh Jelly Lotion

Started on this 150mL/5fl. oz. bottle of Shiseido Waso Fresh Jelly Lotion after I finished DHC Mild Lotion a few weeks ago.

It's been at least a few years since I last tried anything from Shiseido International (versus their Japanese domestic family of brands). Frankly, nothing really piqued my interest so far, not even the makeup. That was, until this Waso line came along. I'm not quite sure what it was that caught my eyes, the simple but cute packaging, or the claim of the line being washoku-inspired. Even then, I was only curious with 2-3 items from the whole range, namely the cleanser, this lotion (toner), and the cream.
