Koh Gen Do is a Japanese name that may be new to some of you makeup lovers, but I urge you to learn it!
That's because this makeup line from Japan has unique, pretty products with the added bonus of wonderful skin benefits.
I simply adore their Maifanshi Lipstick in Coral Orange (shown left). It's a sheer true coral shade with very flattering gold mico shimmer that's noticeable, but not too much for day time.
The lipsticks do not contain any artificial fragrance, colors or parabens. There are 8 shades in the line, which are all very pretty, soft and sheer. What's fantastic about the lipstick is how much it feels like a lip balm, yet the color acts as more of a sheer stain. The feel is very buttery in texture and has a bit of an oily feel that allows it to move easily over the lips and moisturize them very well. The finish is a pretty, dewy shine - as opposed to a glossy shine. The pigment is sheer and meant to be, so this is for when you are really looking for just a touch of color on the lips.
The Coral Orange in particular is very flattering for those of you with warm complexions, and it's just enough color for the office or hanging out on the weekends. -RLB
