A Faceful

In this face-full of me, I’ve dug out some of my favourite Japanese cosmetics with my kind of autumnal appeal.

\ The Line up: Esprique Blend Dimensional Eyes in shade A4  +  ADDICTION Blushes in Aqua Bronze and Crush + Lavshuca Dramatic Memory Rouge in shade RS-1 + Addiction Tinted Moisturiser in shade 3 (not pictured).

The Lavshuca Dramatic Memory Rouge is a star lipstick in my opinion. 

As this is a drugstore brand, the lipsticks are prettily dress and very reasonably priced  quality items (I paid about £8.00 with the current exchange rate). The Dramatic Memory Rouge is exceptionally moisturising whilst maintaining a weightless feel and ample lasting power.

And the raving goes on….

The lipstick applies like a thick lip balm leaving a waxy medium pigmented colour. This may not suit everyone’s tastes but it works for me as a muted shade lippy that protects against the harsh winds.

The shade I am wearing is RS1, a cool mauve-pink toned dusty rose and does contain micro-unintrusive-shimmer but not enough for it to be a prominent feature of the product.


I devoured my 1st mince pie of the season. I love the puff pastry-clad versions. Crispy yumness.
