OPERA / LIP TINT

This lip cordial is a combination of 3 different textures (Rouge x Tint ÷ Oil). A single application leaves the lips vividly colored, with a semi-matte shine and pure color. The tint formula gives the lips a natural blushed color that does not wear off. It glides over the lips without feeling sticky at all.

Review: This applies super smooth and the glossy finish is so pretty! It lasts long, too! The price point is perfect and it makes me want the other shades! (★みちち★ normal skin age 26)

excel / SKINNY RICH SHADOW

Apply the 4 eyeshadow shades in order for a rich, beautiful gradation. The moisturizing formula glides on and adheres tightly to the eyelids. The elegant shimmering pearl pigments and gold pearl pigments promote elegant glam. The shades are perfect for daily use and leads to beautiful eye makeup.

Review: The powder formula is moisturizing and has the perfect amount of shimmer. I can use it for work or on my day-offs and the sponge tip is easy to apply with (kumicoro combinatio skin age 29)

FANCL / MILD CLEANSING OIL

A powerful cleansing oil with high cleansing abilities and moisture retention. Now even better to firmly remove impurities in pores. The oil is excellent in melting away impurities stuck in pores, treating sagging, open pores on dry skin, leading to a smooth skin surface. Extends smoothly and blends thoroughly with makeup. The oil scatters and can be washed off quickly, minimizing any rubbing on the skin. It leaves enough moisture necessary for the skin and will not dry the skin out. It also minimizes the appearance of fine lines caused by dryness. (Efficacy tested)

Review: This removes my makeup swiftly, cleans out my pores, and doesn’t dry my skin out, I love this so much! (anna*mama dry skin age 27)
