Welcome to my blog!

If you are in for an adventure paired with lengthy, quirky, brutal honest thoughts then you are in the right place.

My name is Arisa and was a cosplayer for 12 years in Malaysia before settling down in Kyoto, Japan. Exploring Japan full time has been a long time dream of mine, so let's explore it together!

JELLY is a beauty & fashion magazine, popular among teens and young adults in Japan, they've recently collaborated with a famous fashion brand EMODA to create fall/ winter make up looks which was featured inside JELLY's January 2019 edition. I bought this magazine end of November 2018, that's how fast they release magazines over here, don't think I can catch up every month.

They were even super generous to include in a full travel size make up palette + mascara for readers to recreate the looks!
Only in Japan their magazines contain such awesome freebies that's actually useful lol, and their samples aren't just small packets. I think at the rate we are going with all these magazines it's more like we are buying the gifts and get free magazine instead LOL.

Examples on how to use their travel size make up palette

Here are the swatches of the palette and my verdict on this is that it's decent quality, exactly what you paid for.

The eyeshadows, especially matte shades aren't that impressive compared to the shimmers which are more smooth & pigmented.

The cream black eyeliner is somewhat wet, glides easily on the lids but need a few seconds to dry before you can open your eyes or you'll end up smudging it. Think I'll use it more as cream eyeshadow rather than eyeliner.

As for the highlighter which is a flat matte white powder, doesn't really do much for strobing but the powdered blusher is a beautiful shimmery peach shade, the color is easily buildable.

The lipsticks are my favorite part of the palette as they are of a gloss like finishing, color is quite solid/ bold with just one application and glides pretty smoothly too. It has 3 autumn like shades and 1 clear lip gloss which can be used to soften the lip colour creating a lighter look.

JELLY Magazines can be found at your nearest combini (unless sold out) and bookstores/ news stands at only 920yen, best to grab them when you see it and don't think twice because they are selling like hot cakes!
That's how influential fashion brands like EMODA is in Japan. I'm not sure if they are bringing in this edition to Malaysia as I don't really keep track of Kinokuniya's record, maybe you guys can go inquire directly.

Yours Truly,
