More x Gelato Pique and Glow x Helena Rubenstein

Stopped by Kinokuniya again this afternoon to get the new January issue of More and Glow.

More comes with a pair of Gelato Pique socks in their trademark "moco-moco" fluffy fabric in mint and lavender.

The magazine is pricey at S$19.30 but it's not that bad when one considers that Gelato Pique's room socks usually retail for 1890yen (about S$30). The material is incredibly fluffy and soft, with a decent thickness. These will come in handy on overseas trips during the cold season. Uniqlo currently also carries some roomwear designs in this type of fabric.

Gelato Pique's winter collection.



The February issue of More will include a L'Occitane zip pouch and a Shea Rich Butter Cream sample. Due out on 25 December in Japan.

The January issue of Glow (S$19) comes with a gold Helena Rubenstein makeup pouch with a black lace overlay on both sides of the pouch. The lace design is inspired by Helena Rubenstein's Lash Queen Sexy Black WP mascara.

I haven't tried Helena Rubenstein's makeup line before but I liked the metallic gold and black lace design of the pouch. Their mascara is often voted the number one mascara in various Japanese beauty magazines. You can find the makeup line at DFS Galleria in Scotts Road.

The pouch is quite roomy, measuring 11x21x6cm, and has three internal side pockets.


It is quite well-made with reinforced stitching. One does have to be careful with the lace-covered portions so as not to snag it acidently.


The next issue will come with a Roberta di Camerino felt bag and satin drawstring pouch. The handbag is a mini version of a popular "R handbag" design by Roberta di Camerino. The release date is also 25 December in Japan.

Have a great weekend, everyone!

How much did the Glow mook cost?

Haru said...

It's S$19. It's a magazine, not a brand mook.

Hi Haru,

Just wondering how Japanese usually use such "room socks" - do u know? Cos I see many Jap mags giving them away as GWPs. :)

hi Janice,
They usually wear the socks at home during the fall/winter months. The socks really help to keep the feet warm and they are incredibly comfortable!
