  4. Hi, I flew to Japan recently and bought Majolica’s Mascaras and liners. I LOVE THEM. Where do you buy them in HK? I’m going there next month. :D:D:D

    I love your site by the way! Keep it up!

  5. I read your blog quite a lot and I think there are a lot of interesting things on make up.
    I was reading this, and I saw that brand, T’estimo which means “I love you” in Catalan (the language of Cataluña and Valencia, in the east of Spain).
    Just funny, to see something in my language in a Japanese brand…I had to comment it…^^
    Anyway, love your blog!!!
