#repost @tremblelikeaflower・・・#swatchsaturday beauty Spring colour edition!.Vibrant colour seems to be trending across many Japanese brands this spring..@addictionbeauty_official ‘Holi Color’ collection is a riotous (nearly neon) collection of 8 eyeshadows, plus some coordinating lipsticks and nail polishes. I have 4 of the 8 shades (skipped the red, pink, purple and yellow most of which were matte) and have 155 New Forest, 156 The Blue City, 158 Orange Marigold and 159 Vishnu Blue. By western standards these are not super pigmented but for Asian beauty the saturation is rich. They have a beautiful translucency which gives a kind of hazy quality while still providing punchy colour..@celvoke.jp ‘For Our Preciousness’ collection is also a colourful one, with 9! new brightly coloured Infinitely Color Cream shades being introduced, as well as 9 lipsticks and 3 eyeliners. I picked up the 5 limited shades of Infinitely Color; EX07 Signal Red, EX08 Blue Surface, EX09 Sea Green, EX10 Stellar Grey and EX11 Spiral Pink. As with most Infinitely Color, the shades look more vibrant in the pan than on the skin but I find this gives them more versatility. I’m most looking forward to the middle 3 shades but the red and pink will also be useful..How do you feel about all of this colour for spring? Does it make you excited?

#repost @tremblelikeaflower・・・Trying out #PureColorBlush 119 #Mikangasane today. I used heavy duty tape to remove the hardpan and will be keeping an eye on how long it takes to return. It was necessary though, because even a scratchy brush was unable to dislodge any powder..The blush is very orange, and the yellow (at least on me) is more of a soft gold highlight. The yellow portion does contain small sparkles, which aren’t my favourite highlight inclusion but at least they’re small..Happy Friday!

#repost @tremblelikeaflower・・・#swatches of the @suqqu_official Spring 2020 Color collection.I picked the limited items from the collection (🏽 @fudejapan !) because they were the most interesting. I may get some of the permanent ones later, once I see additional swatches, etc. I’m not sure what the theme is for this year’s collection, but it’s an inconventional one for spring..#DesigningColorEyes 130 #Shungasumi is an unexpected combo of pale white, periwinkle blue, mossy green and cherry red..#GlowTouchEyes 108 #Koukyokuiro is a better version of that multicoloured white Marc Jacobs liquid shadow that disappointed me so much last month; they both have the same unicorn rainbow pearl but the Suqqu one wears well and doesn’t look like flaky disease on the eyelids 🤣.#PureColorBlush 118 #Oribenigasane and 119 #Mikangasane are lovely to look at but a little problematic to use. I struggled a lot to pick up product when I was swatching (those are many layers) and by the time I was done, both palettes were hardpanned (see my stories). I haven’t tried them on my cheeks yet; hopefully the goat Suqqu brush is sufficiently scratchy to pick up product 🤷🏽‍♀️

Do you know the second highest mountain in Japan after Mt.Fuji?

Hi Everyone,

Do you know the second highest mountain after Mt.Fuji in Japan?
(The picture above is Mt. Fuji)

Actually,
Mt. Fuji is so famous that many Japanese don’t know it.

I didn’t know, either.

So,
I checked Wiki and found out it is Mt. Kita.

It is not as beautiful as Mt. Fuji, but looks good, right?

That makes me think this :

Important to be No. 1.

Many people can tell the gold medalist of a 100m competition, but who is the second?

What is the largest country in the world?
What is the second?


Peter Thiel, a founder of PayPal, says that it is important to start a business in a small market and win it. And grow from there.

PayPal focused on the heavy users of eBay first.

It has grown by taking a good market share by focusing on the small market.

Now PayPal is huge.

When I was a high school student, I lost my motivation to study. I spent very lazy and worthless three years. No dream, no plan, and no fun.

And I have found myself in trouble that I will not be admitted to any university.

The problem is not that I don’t go to a university, but that I cannot find what I want.

Very hesitant to say this but I need time to think what to do before being on the job market.

What a negative motivation to go to a university!

It was too late to study all subjects,
English, Math, Japanese, World History, Japanese History, Chemistry, and Physics for national universities.

So I began to search for universities with fewer subjects.

Keio University has only three subjects. English, Math and World History.

The good thing was also that the English scores account for 50% of the total.

I kept studying only English as I was interested.

It was November. The exam was in February.

I tried scoring the minimum score to pass. English first and World History second. Studied hard for three months by my standard, lol.

In the end, I was accepted to a school I targeted.

My presents still say to me, ‘it is such a waste of money to send you to a prep school.’ I quit attending the prep school after the first week…

I wish I could do three years at high school again….

Since that time, it has been my direction all the time to focus on and excel in a small market.

To find a small market and invest my time.

Looking at Fude(brush) market, it is not the largest of all cosmetics, but I feel the enthusiasm of the Fude lovers. This market has the depth.

I want to focus on the fude market!

By the way, the largest country is Russia.
Canada is the second.

Thank you for reading!
