Nomakenolife: September 2022 – Summer Kiss

September may be the tail end of summer, but nomakenolife is keeping us feeling sunny with this month’s selection.

Looks like there will be lots of fun colours here!

There’s the usual menu, which describes each item as well as any particular usage instructions, plus there’s also a fun guide to lovely places in Japan to visit in the summer.

Zuquuun Girls Eye Color Mousse Shadow in Aurora Brown (Mystery Makeup Item), PLAY ON MAKE Sunset Shadow Palette

There are a couple of mystery items in the box this month. I’ve got this eyeshadow, which is a lovely brown colour. It’s got good pigmentation, and the texture is smooth and almost moist, which means it applies beautifully.

The shadow palette has five gradated colours ranging from light to dark, rather like a sunset. The variety means they can be used alone or layered and mixed for a more dramatic look. The colour, a reddish brown spectrum, is also very flattering.

Rty Melty Rough Colour Tint, Rty Melty Rouge Pearl Tint

These are both lip products. The Colour Tint gives a light hint of colour, but it can also be applied in multiple layers for a more intense look. The Pearl Tint is exactly as it sounds; a lovely pearl shine that can be worn alone or layered over colour for a great depth of colour and reflective shine.

Beausta Cica Recipe Care Cream, Beausta Cica Recipe Care Mask

Cica is a very hot beauty ingredient right now. Extracted from a botanical herb, it has anti=inflammatory and antioxidant properties, both of which are superb for skin. The care cream is a lovely moisturiser that offers plenty of hydration whilst bonnet being heavy. The mask is a terrific complement to the cream, giving extra hydration and refreshment, especially for dry skin.

ChuChu Ear Face Lifting Tool

These odd little rubber items are used for tightening the skin of the jaw, and apparently improving facial muscle tone. There are instructions in the booklet so you can see how it’s supposed to work.

Kawaii Bath Bomb (Mystery Care Item)

I’ve seen these bath bombs before and they’re super cute. They’re fizzy and smell amazing, plus when they melt there’s a tiny little cute toy inside!

Our score: 8.6/ 10

My favourite items this month are the Cica mask and cream. My skin tends to be dry, so any moisturising cream is a big plus for me, and these are both gentle and effective. I have to say I'm not convinced by the face-lifting tool. It's certainly fun an unusual, but these things always strike me as kind of gimmicky, and having attempted to use it, I can say it's not comfortable to wear, especially for anyone with piercings! This is definitely a novelty item, and while it's great at showcasing the more unusual side of Japanese beauty products, I'm not sure how useful it actually is. I do really like the makeup this month, I love how it can be dramatic or subtle, as I'm very into products that have as wide a use as possible. And the bath bomb, even though it's mystery item, is just fantastic. I love taking baths and bath products, and the cute toy inside is a great bonus. This month's selection is almost all excellent, despite the strange face thing!
