Tsubaki Premium Hair Mask

Shiseido Tsubaki is releasing their new Premium Hair Mask (1165yen, 180g) exclusively on Rakuten on 10 August before it launches nationwide in mid-September in Japan. It is supposed to be so effective that it requires zero waiting time and can be rinsed off virtually immediately with salon-like results. Recommended to be used 1-2 times weekly, it contains pearl protein and amino acids for repairing damaged hair, royal jelly and glycerine for hydration, and a higher concentration of the brand's signature camellia oil compared to their conditioners and treatments for adding luster and repair.

Lunasol Isetan Shinjuku Exclusive Shine Fall Eyes EX01

Kuri Nakagome posted this stunning picture of the upcoming Lunasol Shine Fall Eyes EX01 and Full Glamour Lips EX09 which will be sold exclusively at Isetan Shinjuku in Tokyo and Umeda Hankyu in Osaka starting 11 August. It's bewildering when companies push such attractive palettes as ultra-exclusives that are a pain to hunt down (unless you're willing to pay for a personal shopper service) instead of making it easily available as part of their permanent range and creating a win-win for both the company and consumers. Details on the rest of the Komorebi Jyouka collection can be found here.

1. Eye Crayon: 5 LE waterproof shades (2700yen). See a swatch video on At Cosme's Instagram.

4. Art de Fleurs Lipstick in RD412 and RO614 (6000yen)

5. Nail Enamel RD442 and GY050 (2000yen)

Lancome Teint Miracle Liquid Foundation (3rd Generation)

Lancome will launch its third generation version of its popular Teint Miracle Liquid foundation SPF25 PA+++ (6000yen, 30ml, 7 shades) on 15 September in Japan. Boosted with moisture capture technology for improved hydration capability, it is formulated with an 'aura inside technology' with three types of pearl particles for creating a natural lustrous glow. The paraben-free and oil-free formula is also gentle on skin. This is the first time that I've seen a Lancome product being marketed as being paraben-free, although I could be wrong. Pic from Maquia.

Lancome is also teaming up with Olympia Le Tan for its Autumn '17 colour makeup collection launching on 18 August but it looks too kitschy and unappealing to me, especially the freaky lip-shaped lipsticks. You can see pics of it here. Pic below by At Cosme.

Estee Lauder Double Wear Cushion BB Liquid Compact N

Estee Lauder has just launched a revamped version of its Double Wear Cushion BB Liquid Compact in Japan. The Double Wear Cushion BB Liquid Compact N SPF50 PA++++ (6500yen, 12g) offers sheer coverage and a hydrating, long-lasting glowy finish. However, it's unclear what exactly is new in this version versus the original Double Wear Cushion BB that launched in Spring 2016, as the sun protection level and product description are exactly the same, along with the paltry offering of just three shades. The only noticeable difference is that the case now comes with a shiny gold lid, versus the dark blue of the original.

Paul & Joe Fall 2017 Base Makeup and Isetan Shinjuku Exclusive

Paul & Joe will release its new Liquid Foundation (4500yen) and Pressed Face Powder (4000yen for refill, 1500yen for case) on 1 September in Japan. The bird print case is limited edition.

There will be a special Paul & Joe Circus pop-up store at Isetan Shinjuku in Tokyo from 26-31 July to mark the launch of its new lipstick line. Fans of their cat lipsticks will be pleased to know that these are finally part of the permanent line in the form of a shimmery pearlescent lipstick and a hydrating lip treatment.

There will be seven lipstick cases (1000yen each) exclusively available at this event, as well as a Lipstick Trio set (8500yen) that include a Lipstick Treatment and Lipstick N in the limited edition shades C01 and C02.

Below are exclusive gift boxes with any purchase of the Lipstick Trio.

The two tote bags below are the gifts with purchases of 10,000yen and above.

Majolica Majorca Wonder Fixer
