December Ageha issue - part 1

The December issue of Ageha is always my favorite because they share all their "top 3s", similar to US magazines such as Allure.  The big difference is that (1) it is based on readers' votes (why did Allure stop doing this???) and (2) they have a whole lot of non-beauty stuff as well.

A few screen shots...
The fashion section


These girls' faces are actually photoshop collages of girls regularly featured on Ageha!
For example, number 1 girl's face consists of the eyes which were voted number 1, the lips voted number 1, etc.  The same goes for the number 2 face and the number 3 face!


Here are some of the "top 3" items and what I thought about them.

Blush: 1 - Canmake Powder Cheeks PW20, 2 - Chanel Joues Contraste Powder Blush #44, 3 - Bihada Ichizoku Hitomebore Cheek Pink
Canmake is a cheap brand, but their blushes are pretty good!

Mascara: 1 - Dejavu Fiberwig Extra Long, 2 - Maybelline Volume Extra Turbo Boost, 3 - Majorica Majorica Lash Expander Frame Plus
I really like Dejavu because there is no way I'll get smudges!  Majomajo is a blogger favorite, but I personally don't like comb applicators!

Eyeshadow: 1 - Kate Diamond Cut Eyes BR1, 2 - Kate Gradical Eyes BR3, 3 - Kate Reflect Mirror Eyes BR1
Wow, all Kate!  The Gradical Eyes line has been around forever and I hit pan on one I bought about 2 years ago!  I did not like the Diamond Cut Eyes (not pigmented enough) or the Mirror Eyes (too glittery).  I'm hoping Kate will come up with better palettes soon!

They also had top liquid/powder foundations, primers, concealers, face powders, highlighters, contour powder, eyeliner, false eyelashes, lipstick, lipgloss, etc!  Let me know if you want to know about them!!

Oh - they also had eyebrow stuff... 3 separate categories!  It shows you how serious we are about our eyebrows!!

Next up - the skincare stuff!

xoxo, K
