Japan Makeup Haul
Saturday May 19, 2012
Did the clothes; now the makeup.
For quite a number of months now I’ve been really obsessed with brown makeup shades. Brown mascara, brown liner, brown shadow. And right now it’s very easy to find brown makeup in Japan. Even brown liquid eyeliners. So .. this is pretty evident in what I picked up.
- Lavshuca – 3D shadow
- CANMAKE – Eye Nuance (2)
- Dolly Wink – crystal cream shadow
- KATE – eye shadows (2)
- Majolica Majorca – Jeweling Eyes
I know these palettes mostly all look the same. lolol
Pink and brown. But they’re all actually pretty different. Different pigments and mostly different level of “sparkle.” All the palettes I purchased were shimmer or glitter. I avoided glitter for a while but I want them again after being surrounded by so many while there!
- Fiberwig – natural brown
- Majolica Majorca – Lash King (black)
- Love Switch – SWEET Pink Pearl Brown
- K-Palette – 1 Day Keep Base
- Love Switch – Pink Brown Curl
All brown except Lash King and the mascara base. The mascara base is serious business! Takes a bit of extra time to remove. Lash King is REALLY good at long & thick lashes.
- Bonavoce – Royal Brown
- K-Palette – Real Lasting Eyeliner Real Brown
- Lovedrops – Deep Brown
- La Rose de Versailles – Princess Antoinette Lovely Eyes (dark brown)
- Love Switch – Pink Brown eyeliner
Finally I have liquid brown eye liners!
Surprisingly no two are exactly alike. Different shades, different pen width. I really love the Love Switch one because it’s a very soft brown. But the deep browns are good for stronger (but not deep black strong) looks.
- COFFRET D’OR – 02 peach
- KISS – mix heart dolly pink
- Lavshuca - cheek
- MFC – blend color cheek
- Majolica Majorca – Puff de Cheek Macaron (highlight)
The size of the COFFRET D’OR surprised me. I had seen them rated highly online & in magazines so I wanted to pick up one or two but the size … the case is like the size of a moonpie! So I settled for peach :) It’s an incredibly shimmery blush + highlighter.
I regret not buying all 4 KISS blush palettes. Great pigment and wonderful matching highlighter. The brush is a good useful shape that compliments the palettes design.
- Candy Doll – Cotton Candy gloss
- Integrate – Lip Bloom
- Trendholic – Lip Peeling
- 0kuma – concealer
- Dolly Wink – eyebrow pencil
- ParaDo – eyebrow pencil
- Mini germanium face roller
- Panasonic – rotating heated lash curler
I’m really happy I got the lash curler after seeing a CM for it while there. I got a limited version that has hearts on it. It takes longer to curl my lashes than the usual metal curler but the curl is more voluminous, noticeable and lasts all day (and night) long.
- Eyemazing – Amo Pastel Accent Lash
Even the lashes I bought were brown :)
Various polishes I got including Ettusais’s Gel Top Coat which was everywhere. I’ve used it a few times already and it’s pretty good! I think it’s slightly better than Majolica Majorca’s gel top coat. Lasts just a little longer and doesn’t scuff as badly. I like gel top coats, not only for the look, but they tend to “crease” rather than chip which is far less noticeable.
Being there really got me in the mood for pink sheer polish…
- Baby Pink – BB Mineral Cream
- Yojiya – lip blotting sheets and mini mirror
OK these feet peeling type masks REALLY WORK. My feet are so, so soft now. Softer than any pedicure spa has ever gotten them.
A few photos while still in the hotel.
I was going to take snaps of all the packaging because I ditched nearly everything in order to save room. But then … I forgot to/didn’t care. As much as it was hard to ditch the pretty packaging for the ride home it really helped conserve space.
