Gifts Ideas for a Magical Girl

New Sailor Moon Cosmetics! {Overview}

For the 20th anniversary of Sailor Moon Bandai has released a series of cosmetics inspired by the series.

The first cosmetics item to be released is the Beaute’s Miracle Romance Shining Moon Powder which is packaged beautifully to resemble the transformation broach Usgai’s/Sailor Moon’s Crystal Star Transformation Brooch. The product also comes with a chain should you wish to wear it as a necklace.

The second release is to be a set of five nail polish in colours that represent the inner sailor soldiers (pink, red, blue, green and orange). The packaging is highly reminiscent of the transformation sticks and uses the same components such as the gold star and sign and colour.

Another release from Bandai is a jewelry item – This ring replicates the brooch that appears in the Sailor Moon Super S arc. it comes in gold and silver. Although I like the idea of Sailor Moon inspired jewelry I feel that these look too cheap.

I am so happy that new Sailor Moon products have been released, especially the cosmetics. I really want them but the shipping from Japan would cause too much of an inconvenience for me and prehaps wouldn’t be worth the price.
