MakeUp4All AUTUMN 2011 Online Beauty Magazine

October is a Breast Cancer Awareness month and I did post about some beauty launches (Bobbi Brown, Origins, Elemis) that support the case on my Facebook page.

I also posted about the  Japonesque  sets that were released to support the case. There are five sets and I was given three of them to show you. When you purchase any of the following products or  kits, £1 will be donated to Breast Cancer Awareness Research.

I have:

Japonesque Pink Heated Mini Lash Curler (£12.50).

This is actually my favourite product. I did not have heated lush curlers, only shu uemura’s, so was a bit nervous to try. But there was no need to be afraid.  I use them after mascara and hold for several seconds. They do not ‘burn’ your lashes and it’s not really hot actually. And the results are great and long-lasting.

This is actually a great product to have and now I recommend it to my friends. Plus I think the price is great!

Japonesque Brush Set Touch Up Tube Pink (£16.95). You get a foundation brush, a lip brush, two eye detailers and blush/powder brush.

I am actually a huge fan of Japonesque brushes and I use them on myself and on other people, I think the quality is

Japonesque launched their products at HQhair.com and I was given three eye brushes and a pair  of eye lashes to show you.

The brushes that I have are: Pro Eye Detailer Brush – Medium (£14.75),  Pro Eye Shadow Crease Brush (£12.75) and Pro Eyeliner Brush (Flat), (£10.50). The lashes I have are called Extra Flair (£8.15).

I haven’t tried these (dramatic) eye lashes yet but  they look like a quality ones and come with a glue.

As for the brushes, here is how Japonesque suggest using their brushes:

Japonesque Safari Brushes Collection

Although I am not a fan of leopard print at all, I know that a lot of people love it. Plus I am a big fan of Japonesque (face brushes reviewed here) so I thought I’d show you their newest Safari brushes collection.

There is a ‘purr-ferct’ :) Safari Brush Set, in a microfibre case, which includes Powder Brush, Shadow Brush and Crease Brush. The set retails for £28.

And there is also a bronzer blush which retails for £19.50.  Ahh, if only I loved leopard print.

All brushes are made of synthetic bristles.  All the mentioned products are available from Boots.

The great news is that Japonesque is now available from HQhair.com who ship to different countries. There are not that many products available  but the brand plans to add more, yes, the well palettes, too.

Japonesque was founded 25 years ago but it is already a cult brand. It was originally made by Make-Up Artists for Make-Up Artists.  Brand’s tools were inspired by the professional make up tools used in kabuki theater in Japan.

These days Japonesque has a big range of brushes and accessories which are loved by a lot of  Top professionals from the beauty industry.

This is why I was very excited when I was given some of their brushes to write about.  In this post I will tell you about the travel brushes for face and in future I will let you know about the brushes for eyes and eye brows. Unfortunately, I don’t have a lip brush to show you.

The packaging is nice, simple and really helpful.  They have some very handy instructions on the back of  each box. All I can say is that I’d really appreciate it back in the days when I was getting my first brushes.

And here are the face brushes that I have in all their glory ;)

933 Travel Powder Brush, 924 Travel Blush Brush, 914 Travel Angled Foundation Brush, 910 Travel Concealer Brush.

 

So now let’s take a look at each brush, shall we?
