  1. the japaense does beautiful packaging as always. love the texture of the UV base mousse.

    sadly we will miss the sakura season this year becos of the japan earthquake :(

  2. hm... i feel like they made the sakura very cheap looking...or they used her photos very poorly...

    it has a very bath and body works feel....

  3. The packaging for the powder foundation case is so pretty! I love cherry blossoms! =)
