Taveler from Pacific to Pacific

So I wanted to make this blog post for people who travel from the land of rising sun to land of setting sun. . .Well for ppl who travel here to the US or from here to Asia and forget to bring with them their makeup bag and skincare products or forced to leave or throw always there $$in airport trash can. I also wanted to see what brands are have similarities . . . So let’s begin. In America L’Oreal corp. is pretty big since it has hands in everything that could ask for, Consumers to Professional makeup artist but in Asia Kanebo must be its second cousin but Shiseido bets out for beings it cousin the most. (family comparson -_-) Loreal:
CONSUMER PRODUCTS: L’Oreal Paris, Garner, Maybelline New York, Softsheen Carson, CCB Paris PROFESSIONAL PRODUCTS: L’Oreal Professional, Kérastase, Redken, Matrix, Mizani, Pureology, Shu Uemura, Art of Hair LUXURY PRODUCTS: Lancôme, Biotherm, Helena Rubinstein, Kiehl's, Shu Uemura, Giorgio Armani, Ralph Lauren, Cacharel, Viktor & Rolf, Diesel, YSL Beauté, Maison Martin Margiela, Stella McCartney ACTIVE COSMETICS: Vichy, La Roche, Posayinnéov, Skinceuticals, Sanoflore, Roger&Gallet and THE BODY SHOP Now, Let’s look at Kanebo:
Product lines: SENSAI, AQUA SPRINA, Impress, DEW SUPERIOR BLANCHIR SUPERIOR FAIR CREA RAPHAIE freeplus Fréshel suisai LUNASOL, COFFRET D'OR, KATE, media, ALLIE, SALA, and TIFFA. KATE is one I’ve seen that kind of a dup for MAC or ideally Revlon. Oh and I’ve seen Lunasol b4 too. Lunasol is kind of a dup for Laura Mercier. Now I was looking @ TIFFA and it reminded me of Urban decay or Hard candy with it packaging but it mostly focused on the eye area of face. Now for Shiseido which most of us are all familiar with? The corp. brands include:
Ayura, IPSA, ISO Hair, Joico, NARS Cosmetics, Qiora, Revital, Serge Lutens. When reading that Joico was brand I was really happy bcuz this brand came to me out nowhere what I mean is I’ve been seeing it some in YouTube guru’s vlogs and blogs this past year and it’s a salon hair care product and it’s expensive but rally good. Oh I was surprised again that NARS was on their list as well because I thought it was west coast based cosmetic company just like Stila but I was wrong again (sorry if affined any makeup enthusiast) Here is a list of dups or similar brands if you’re every traveling or just curious. . .

Just B4 My Birthday

Hey Guys, This coming Monday is my birthday and a very special one. . .Am turning 21 well am I really don't know what to do for it i usually plan these things last minute. Any idea just leave a response. Anyways the end of 2011 was Awesome I got see Kyary Pamyu Pamyu @ Royal/T cafe in Culver City (also met Myth Buster's Grant Imahara) and I went there again to "Akihibhara winter wonderland" where they show cased k pop and j pop put haven't posted any footage yet so if god willing WMM (windows movie maker) will stop acting up I'll probably post it on my YouTube page @Ash2theb. Here is Part one of the Kyary Pamyu Pamyu experience:

You there three parts on my YouTube page

In January I got to go see my girls "THE WONDER GIRLS MOVIE" at CGV cinema and and there were a lot of ppl there I have some video footage from my phone but it's very bad quality when comes zoom and sharping when in video mode that my only concern with SAMSUNG focus but camera it self is awesome i was thinking of upgrading my phone and just buying a extra phone or camera which am leading most towards since am taking digital photography in the spring. As I was say about movie it was funny and cheesy but very cute fantastic. . .also we got there CDs for free which i feel like a true "Wonderfuls" lol.
You can watch their movie at Also watch there music video "Please be my Baby" on there YouTube offical page and you can also follow them on twitter and Facebook.

 So, later on this month I found out "SNSD" American debut album which was 01/17/2012, so ran out to Best Buy to buy it I even went and went to their rack name and there was nothing there. . . so, I went to customer service and bought it with a few other things like a key board for my PS3 and two DVD from my favorite animation studio Ghibli. I just got it today 3 days b4 my birthday an awesome self gift to me. So am proud owner of two crossing over Korean groups.
