What makes this range truly special though, is the unique designs that adorn the packaging; each palette has a one-off design created by dropping coloured gel onto the surface by hand. Not only does this make the packaging look beautiful and perfect for presents, but ensures that when you take a piece of Japonesque home with you it's truly unique. The palettes are good quality and each contain little mirrors, while even the tops of the lipgloss contain marbled gel to bring the range together. I've no doubt that this will become a makeup brand to challenge some of the more established names available in department stores, especially as it looks and feels so different. I had no reservations that Japonesque's debut makeup line would be something to lust after (thanks to their preceding reputation around the Japonesque makeup tools,) and they haven't disappointed. I look forward to seeing new additions in the coming months and watching the brand grow from strength to strength.
The Japonesque colour cosmetics are available exclusively in John Lewis stores (Oxford Street, Milton Keynes and future stands planned) as well as online.
