I’ve had my eye on this Kryolan Variety Eye Shadow palette in “Bright” since I saw it last May at The Makeup Show and I’ve been waiting patiently for the perfect reason to justify my purchase. When recently, an opportunity came up to work on an opera, the first thing on my to “do list” was to buy this palette! I’m so glad I finally did as inside this compact case are 18 highly pigmented and fabulously matte bright shades- perfect for elaborate theatrical makeup as well for edgy fashion looks.
Now that vacation is over and I’m back in work mode, I stopped by the Japanese market in my neighborhood, Midoriya, to check out the beauty products. While the cosmetics section is currently on the smaller side, I definitely found some things I needed.
I couldn’t resist getting these Dolly Wink lashes- how adorable is this package? These are style #5 which will work for most of my creative projects because they are flirty, but still very natural. They might seem expensive because of the “import price”, however you get two pairs in the box. It only made sense then to throw in a new eyelash curler, right? I did.
For myself, I picked up a lip balm by Shiseido called “Water in Lip” which, as expected from it’s name, is very moisturizing. I also had to have the blotting sheets just because the outer package was purple, but inside was a happy surprise. The sheets are also purple and check out the “disco style” backdrop on the inner flap. Fabulous!
That’s all I picked up today as it was just a “quickie”, but I made sure to let them know that many makeup artists live in the area and how much we would appreciate it if they could stock some of those fancy Japanese q-tips and super cool 3D fake nails. Okay, so I was speaking about myself, but I don’t think I’m alone here.
