Stuff To Look At

Check out this blog for the P&J's new collection. She has swatches up as well. My Chinese isn't good enough to understand everything, so you could always Google Translate everything XD

Also take a look here for this MUA's video tutorial using the latest RMK Base Makeup. It's in Cantonese and Japanese. Me wants!!!! I don't think it's out in Seoul yet, plus I'm sure the price will turn me off from buying it XD
I translated what I could hear from the first video.

For the Super Basic Concealer, the MUA says that there are 2 shades because it helps create a nice highlight on your eyes while concealing. The powder on the bottom helps create a glowly highlighted finish because it contains some shimmer.

For the Powder Foundation EX, all you need to do is spread the powder lightly with the sponge to create a flawless look. The powder foundation is supposed to apply very easily like their liquid foundation so there aren't any uneven spots. He says if you try the foundation yourself, you'll notice that it feels like you're applying liquid foundation because it is so smooth. The sponge is supposed to be made in a special way that makes applying the foundation very easy.
For extra coverage, simply pat on the foundation with the sponge after the first layer. Even if you apply more than 1 layer, you won't notice any cakeyness
The top part of the foundation is used with the brush. It contains shimmer to create a glowly finish.

OK..I'm convinced...they got me at the part where the foundation doesn't cake and applies like a liquid. I'm terrible at applying powder foundation evenly which is why I use liquid foundation. I wonder if the RMK foundation will live up to this claim?
The cherry blossoms and magnolias are blooming like crazy! This was at the university near my box. I'll be heading to Yeuido(?) station this weekend to check out the famous cherry blossom area.

Thanks for the links, MiuMiu. Now I have to dust off my rusty Japanese, but those P&J pictures were sexy!!

izumi said...

what pretty flowers!! can't wait til you go to the cherry blossom AREA~ ah, i want to go! :)

those two items are drool worthy. i love asian products. why are they so hard to get over here? oh wait, it's the US and we suck at making stuff like that, hahah :P

i totally understand about it being weird about your students! i used to tutor KUMON and i had a feeling one of the boys had a crush on me. it was very awkward. but i could always send him to another tutor.. but.. as a teacher, that's hard. :\
