♡ Sailor Moon iPhone Cases ♡

With the recent re-release of Sailor Moon expected at the end of this year there is so much merchandise around, other than the  official Sailor Moon cosmetics a series of jewelry and other apparel has been released for pre-order. My favourite and most useful type of merchandise is the humble phone case, as it can turn your boring old iPhone into something more reflective of you. Here are my five favourite cases. Please visit Moon Kitty where the rest of the phone cases and other merchandise is listed.

My personal favourite is the first one as I like the visual arrangement of the henshin items, the pop art style makes the case super cute and contemporary.

With my recent post about the official Sailor Moon cosmetics I was inspired to find other cute magical girl inspired cosmetics that are perhaps more accessible than the official items themselves.

The rise of online shops such as Pretty & Cute sell Asian beauty products that have this visual language selling brands such as Etude House and Dolly Wink. This kitsch/cute aesthetic isn’t traditionally used in western cosmetics packaging however I have noticed some cuter packaging being produced. Here are a few Magical Girl style cosmetics:

4. Ciate (Funhouse) – A super cuter glittery purple nail polish [x]
5. Ciate (Candy Floss) – How lovely is this pink polish? it is the perfect candy floss pink [x]
6. Again, I love this packaging, the colours pretty too. [x]

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.
