I have noticed that I have a lot of visitors from Japan, China and Korea lately. So this post I would like to deducate to their local brands. Althought my girls wrote a lot of great posts this weeek I will link to them next Sunday.
How is your weekend going so far? I’ve got about 15 beauty magazines so I have what to do 😀 Yesterday my parents made me a present- Gucci shoes. Wow that was a great surpise!
Also I’ve got a question for you all. Have anyone tried DECUBAL products? It’s Scandinavian :in love: skincare line for DRY SKIN. I have very dry skin so I would really love to try it. The prices are about $15-30. And I just discovered this brand near my home 🙂
So here are 12 links to Holiday 2009 collections by Asian brands.
I always like trying new brands and products and I have huge list of those that I still “need” to try. So last week I’ve got my very first Anna Sui which I have been using every single day this week.
The lip gloss I have is called Anna Sui Sui Lip Gloss in 001. It is a clear lip gloss with some shiny stars which are unlikely to come out, so don’t worry about them. But they make the gloss look cute and interesting.
The first thing that caught my attention were the roses on the packing and the rose cap of the gloss. Plus as a huge fan of everything that smells roses, I was delighted to find out that the gloss smells like roses, too. It reminds me of Jo Malone Red Roses which I adore.
I really love the texture and consistency of the gloss, too. I find it glossy and moisturizing, it has no shine or glitter in it, just this perfect wet glossy finish, as if the surface of the lake (if that makes sense). I think this is a perfect product for summer. It will look super sexy with tanned skin and bronzed/turquoise makeup.
I am also impressed with the
I don’t really do nude lips, there are several nude lipsticks that I like but I rarely use them. My everyday lips would be baby pink or clear glosses or the new glossy lipsticks. I also love light coral and peaches and bright matte lips but light pinks/clear glosses would be my choice for an everyday look.
There are so many that I love but I have decided to choose only eight. I love high end glosses for my personal use but I understand that not everyone can afford it so I’ve chosen three much cheaper lip products that I love, too.
My most favourite affordable lip gloss is Demure by Rimmel which is discontinued but I have backups.
