The bestselling book Memoirs of a Geisha inspired a film (directed by Rob Marshall of ‘Chicago’ fame). And now the film has inspired the folks at Fresh to introduce a new cosmetics collection based on the film. ‘Memoirs of a Geisha’ isn’t set to be released until December 2005 but you can already get a taste of pre-WWII Japanese sensuality through Beauty.com. The products live up to Fresh’s definitive standards of high quality make-up that’s easy to apply with packaging as beautiful as the make-up itself.
I’ve been toting around the Beauty Face Palette (38.00) because the colors create the perfect natural glow with 3 options for eyes, face, and lips all in one sleek compact.
The Crushed Pearl Shimmer Powder comes in a tin that’s decorative enough to sit in a geisha’s boudoir. And the contents inside…decoration for your skin. The powder creates a subtle shimmer on your face with the crushed pearls acting as little light diffusers. This powder does little to absorb oil but it’s effect is ethereal. I’ve been dusting it on after applying my oil-controlling foundation.
I loved the book and I’m loving this collection. I can’t wait to soak in the Geisha Bath. It contains sake, my drink of choice when dining on sushi. According to Fresh, bathing in sake is an ancient Japanese tradition. Sake is known to detoxify, soften and soothe the skin due to amino acids and it is rich in natural minerals.
