This comes in two equally gorgeous colors, a burgundy and a pinky-orangey coral. I had already purchased a similar lip&cheek product in burgundy from a competing brand, so I got the coral one from Ettusais. It`s a gorgeous creamy lipstick which is fairly moisturizing and shiny, but does need touch-ups throughout the day. As a blush it is equally gorgeous and easy to build up. The only thing is, as I am very oily skin the blush also needs a touch up or two as the day goes on. This isn`t a major issue, as the twist-up crayon makes it very easy to use and I enjoy taking a bathroom break to touch up my make up. There is no fragrance or shimmer in this one. The formula is especially friendly to acne prone skin, as most of the Ettusais products are, so I never break out from this or any of their other products I`ve tried. Would definitely repurchase.

This is my third brow mascara product; I`ve tried Benefit Gimme Brow and its supposed dupe Essence`s Make me Brow. Ettusais is much better than my previous favorite brow mascara from Benefit. Hated the Essence one. That wand is a bit awkward because I think it`s meant for fuller, thicker brows. Mine are sparse from over-plucking. What I love most about it is how easy it is to build natural looking color and depth with this. That wand might be a bit too big for my skinny brows, but the hairs are gentle and can be manipulated well to place the product where I need it. And the wand hairs are soft and don`t scratch the hell out of my skin like Benefit and Essence. The color is natural, although unfortunately the range is limited to three shades. Luckily the medium one is a close match for me, and I use it coupled with a brow powder to build some extra depth by having some other hues in my hair. It is water-proof and incredibly long-lasting. I will keep repurchasing this because it is a little more than half the price of Benefit`s Gimme Brow.

This is my secret to natural, great-looking skin with a semi-matte finish. I have acne-prone skin and have used this everyday for the past year without problems. I blend a small drop on my forehead, nose, and chin with my fingers and it blends seamlessly with the rest of my face. If you use it with a light hand, the small bottle will actually last quite a while. I go through a tube every 6 months - and that's with daily wear.

I have this eyeliner in navy and have worn it all summer and this little pencil is as waterproof as they come: it`s hazy hot and humid in Western Japan but my liner didn`t melt on me. The color is opaque and beautiful with a slight hint of golden shimmer. So buttery and easy to apply and the stick is fairly thin so it`s easy to tightline. If you like a smudgy eye though, you have to work fast because it sets quickly and once it`s set only a good oil will take it off. My L`Oreal and other brands` gel eyeliners have been disappointing because of how quickly they dry up and turn useless in their tubes, but the Ettusais ones will not quit on you. It`s so cheap, too. Will definitely repurchase.

This is one of the lower priced Japanese foundations, I like to think of Ettusais like the "Japanese Revlon or Maybeline." It contains serum, SPF 25, and other anti-aging ingredients that are supposed to prevent the signs of aging in the long run. I wasn`t expecting a whole lot, but then I did pay just about 2000 yen for it, so I thought it would be good for low-key workdays. It performed quite nicely: it was easy to blend (I use fingers, though the consistency is thick enough to work with brush or sponge), the coverage was medium with just a very tiny pump, so I think you could build up the coverage (I haven`t, I don`t really like full coverage). There was no fragrance or sparkles, it pooled in the pores around my nose a bit, but was easily fixed with a kabuki brush, and it lasted about 6 hours without powder touch-ups. It`s a matte finish, but it doesn`t fall flat. The only issue could be the range of colors: all shades lean pink and there are no shades for darker complexions, like with most Asian brands. I would totally repurchase this, it`s cheap, does the job well, a good foundation for folks on a budget.
