Moon Prism Power Makeup — with actual base and foundation from Shiseido Maquillage!

You’ve seen Sailor Moon transformed by the magic of Moon Prism Power, but now the series has collaborated with Shiseido to create real makeup that girls can actually use!

Fans of the long running series should be delighted to hear that actual Sailor Moon-themed makeup will be released from Shiseido Maquillage this spring. That’s right, our favorite pretty soldier has teamed up with the Maquillage brand from Japanese cosmetics company Shiseido to take on the hugely important task of helping girls achieve perfect-looking skin.

There will be two items in the Sailor Moon x Maquillage collaboration lineup. First we have a set that includes the Dramatic Powdery UV Foundation and a matching limited edition special design compact case that will be priced at 3,500 yen (US$30.50).

▼ The foundation and sponge fits in the beautiful compact case.

The second item is a set of the same Dramatic Powdery UV Foundation in a smaller size combined with the Dramatic Skin Sensor Base UV makeup base also in a limited edition bottle, to be available for 2,600 yen.

▼ Makeup base and foundation should be a good start to beautiful looking skin.

Coming from Shiseido, the makeup items naturally aren’t all just fancy decoration, but genuine beauty products. The makeup base is designed to continue giving your skin a more beautiful finish than immediately after applying makeup for extended periods of time, and the foundation is a mousse-based powder type made to let you achieve the look of naturally beautiful skin, so it sounds like using the base and foundation should work quite a bit of magic! Both sets are available in two shades (ocher 10 and ocher 20), from which you can choose based on your skin tone.

Of course, it wouldn’t be a collaboration without the fancy decorations, so they’ve made sure there’s plenty of that as well.

▼ The compact case for the foundation comes decorated with patterns
of the transformation brooch and the sailor soldiers’ planetary symbols.

▼ It’s also colored in lovely pink and blue hues that symbolize the bright
prism colors seen during Sailor Moon’s transformation scene.

▼ The cap of the makeup base is also decorated with the same Sailor Moon patterns for a touch of that magical sparkle.

They also had a special set containing the makeup base, foundation, and compact case along with a special pouch and sticker available exclusively for pre-order through the Premium Bandai shopping site, but these apparently sold out in about one day and is sadly no longer on sale on the site.

You can, however, still buy the two sets we introduced above when they become available starting April 21 at drug stores and supermarkets across Japan or through Shiseido’s online shop. Here’s to the very real magic of makeup, which we can rely on even without the help of Moon Prism Power… though it can’t hurt if you apply it with a Spiral Heat Moon Rod brush.

A perfect school girl uniform/blanket to keep you warm during the cold winter days.

Regular visitors of this blog and website, know about our love for that little weird Japanese company called Bibi Lab…they create things which not only bring a smile to your face, but also actually enrich our comforts.

▼ Say hello to the “Sera Kore Wearable Blanket Type Sailor Uniform Pyjamas”.

big-top-image

Now that we’re all used to the idea of a fleecy school uniform, thanks to Bibi Lab’s previous roomwear collections, the company is now giving us a wearable blanket that looks like a sailor uniform. Despite the “pajama” classification, this roomy outfit is designed to keep the wearer warm while lounging around at home.

f08

The long, flared skirt style makes it easy to walk around the house, and even twirl around in like a schoolgirl if you want to, but the design really comes into its own when worn in a seated position.

f05

According to the makers, this is when it becomes a “Self Kotatsu”, meaning it traps heat around the legs in the same way as a kotatsu, which is a low, blanketed table equipped with a heater underneath.

f07

And because the outfit doubles as pyjamas, you won’t have to worry about getting changed and exposing your skin to the cold before bedtime. Although it might feel strange at first to drift off to sleep while wearing a Japanese-style uniform.

f09

▼ We wonder if Japanese schoolgirls wish they could wear this at school instead of their own uniforms, to help cope with those freezing classrooms.

f03

The thick fleece material extends to the sailor-style collar, which means people around you can use the outfit to keep their hands warm too!

The wearable blanket is if you live in Japan, currently available to purchase from online retailers like Village Vanguard, , if not just fill out the form below. It’s sold in one size and has a recommended retail price of 9,720 yen (US$85.66). With so many weird yet wonderful features, we’re sure this is going to be another popular hit for the Bibi Lab team!

The limited New Evangelion lingerie and roomwear range featuring five favourite characters is back for sale minus the penguin!

In October of last year we announced the limited sale of PJxEVA EVA lingerie sets..in case you’re too lazy to click here (I know we’ve all been there…clicking tiredness IS a disease ) let me refresh your mind once more with these pics:

Two lacy dresses which retail for 7,538 yen (US$63) each.

a
Rei Ayanami
b
Auka Langley Shikinami

Heroine bisecting the popular, Rei and inspired by the Asuka Langley has been PEACH JOHN unique lace full dress!

Well we announced that these sets were limited and only for sale between October 5 and 30…but due to high demand, they released a second batch, but the penguin suit lovers quickly snatched up all of the new stock…so the  penguin suit is an absentee in this new line-up.

xxxyz

Still the set pictured here below with a soft cup bra set, is also quite “penguin like” and will receive as many ooh’s and aah’s from spectators as the original suit….just for different reasons.

 

Also available in orange/yellow AT-Field print.

New to the line but not really since these sets were sold a few years back (of course in limited numbers)are these Spear bra sets, and don’t be fooled, no actual spears shoot out of these bras, however cool that would be, no there is a spear motif decorating these in three color available sets.

The Eva Model lacy bra sets come in five designs for 7,538 yen.

 

 

This model takes her work very serious

Finally the blue and white “doll” set reminiscent of Rei’s school uniform for 7,358 yen.

So there you have it, so for the folks who missed out the first time, here is your second chance, don’t waste it, because you can never be sure if they’ll bring a re-re release…it’s after all not a George Lucas movie.

Since we’re talking about re-release of popular underwear, these Sailor Moon undies are back too!

 

Valentine is finished, but for true Japan lovers, there is always white day,  in Japan women give chocolates and candies to men on valentine’s day and yeah you guessed it right, on white day men give to women! White day is March 14, so you still have enough time to celebrate that second valentine’s day!

We love Sailor Moon on our..ears.

This mix-and-match five-piece gold-plated set is perfect for fans who don’t quite know which Sailor Moon character to pledge allegiance to.

The latest collection of planetary symbol earrings from Premium Bandai follows last year’s release, which featured the markings of the five main warriors from the series, Sailors Moon, Mercury, Mars, Jupiter and Venus.

This time, we’re travelling to the outer planetary rim, with Sailors Pluto, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Chibi Moon in the spotlight, ready to adorn your ear lobes with their planetary powers. Your look will inevitably be misaligned, however, as the set includes only one earring for each of the five characters.

2

The five-piece set of 18-karat gold-plated earrings is available in both pierced and non-pierced versions. Retailing for 12,960 yen (US$106), delivery is scheduled for February 2016.

The earrings are embellished with a Swarovski crystal that corresponds to the colour of each character. The symbols measure in at around one centimetre (0.4 inches) in width and one centimetre in height, making them look dainty and elegant.

JWS japanwebshopping website renewal.

Let me first thank you all dear customers/friends who have been putting your trust in our service, without your help we’d all be working for other companies and we wouldn’t enjoy our jobs/lives as much as we do now.

We’ve been  getting the most surprising and unusual requests and thereby expanding our horizon in what you want and we learn what makes our fellow human being tick. Communicating with folks from all around the world has been a challenging at times (we had to bring in a part-time Spanish speaker/translator  and on a rare occasion a Russian translator), but besides  these rare hiccups, chatting with you through Skype/WordPress/mail and Facebook has been a blast.

We also value your input a lot, and a common complain was that our website loaded like snail…our mistake was that we tried to put as much information and connecting links in it as possible, thereby creating a headache for those without high speed internet access.

So we went a bit simpler this time, and changed the look to a more material/metal look. The pages load a bit faster and it’s definitely easier to the eye. Our love for manga and anime are also more present this time around.

This dark metallic look continues in the separate product pages.

We still haven’t completed the whole site yet though(especially the Japanese section), but we’re working hard to have it finished before Christmas.

Thank you all so much for your patience and in the meantime we will continue to be the best/safest/cheapest (and most personal) personal shopper for you.
