Esprique Glow Eye Veil

If you used to be a fan of Kose Eye Fantasist metallic cream eyeshadows, you may want to check out Esprique's new Glow Eye Veil launching on 16 November. There are 8 shades retailing at a very reasonable 1200yen each. They supposedly last up to 10 hours and contain lucent pearl pigments for a translucent lustrous finish and red algae extract for moisturising benefits.

Now that autumn is finally here, it's time for previews of the Spring 2018 collections! First up is Paul & Joe with yet another variation of their favourite feline theme but with a retro twist in the form of eyeshadow cards made to look like vintage records. Due out on 5 January in Japan, the Face & Eye Color CS #113 April in Paris and #114 French Pop (2500yen) each include three shades. #113 is composed of pink ivory, fresh green and warm red while #114 includes petal pink, pop pink and spring coral.

Majolica Majorca Fall 2017 featuring Milky Skin Remaker

Majolica Majorca is finally releasing a new foundation this fall on 21 October in Japan. The Milky Skin Remaker SPF28 PA+++ (1700yen, 10g) is a gel-type foundation that melds onto the skin to help create the look of a soft, fresh, milky complexion. Refills will retail at 1300yen. Sadly, it is available in only 2 shades, Light Beige and Natural Beige, because clearly, even in Japan, only these two light skin tones are worth catering to (*shaking my head*). It performs the following five functions: foundation, primer, sunscreen, finishing powder and moisture veil. There will also be a limited edition Sugar Moment Body & Hair Cream (800yen, 100g).

Anna Sui Holiday 2017

Here are the details of the Anna Sui Holiday 2017 collection launching in two parts in November and December in Japan.
