Nozzo’s motto is “instead of using stingily the expensive cosmetics, use plenty of cheap cosmetics then!” If you have to use less than a certain amount of cosmetics, then it is better to use plenty of those which have similar quality as cosmetics from departments to maximize the effects. Somewhat, a well-nourished skin will give its best condition. If you have any question or comment, please feel free to comment♪ Also please tell us your recommended cosmetics!
