JAPAN ‘09 HAUL!

The Frivolous

The Hair

I got these rollers instead of the strawberry ones… cause it looked so pink and besides I can get the strawberry ones in S’pore. I love these rollers, super easy to use, cute pink color and very comfy on the head!!

Oh and that’s a blue comb for my dry and frizzy hair :P It doesn’t really work that well :(

I am obsessed with bows, ribbons and cool looking hair bands. OMG… My mom, sis and I discovered so much wonderful stuff and too many ultra cool and super cute shops at HARAJUKU!

When I look back on my trip, I think I enjoyed shopping immensely at  Harajuku, Daikanyama and Nakameguro!

The EYES

IMG_9350

Blair’s Sweets Sweets Palette, Sana concealor, Urban Decay (…etc etc…

I LOVE U ELMO. U are my perfect model:)

IMG_8979

I’m actually a big fan of CAREBEARS and ELMO cause they remind me of my childhood and I used to watch carebear every single day. I resemble grumpy bear in the mornings… muahahah! 

Sana concealor( Light Beige)  takes some getting used to. I experienced no nasty reactions whatsoever and it was really smooth upon application. Only thing is that u have to apply it really really fast or it looks patchy when it dries. It has a very smooth , almost base like finish and I wasn’t used to how it felt. However, I like the coverage, it’s natural looking.

Thanks to Dee for getting me addicted to these Lavshuca palettes! They look so pretty and the color payoff is so sweet !! I’ll do some looks with these palettes too! I got GN1(for Dee!), BR2 and PU2.

 

I saw Urban Decay in THE LOFT but I didn’t see the book of shadows!! Since I am always on the look out for an excellent Black Eyeshadow, I just had to get this matte black color from urban decay. I forgot the name.  Isn’t the packaging cool?!

I grabbed their eyebrow pencil(Brilliant Blonde) which came with a wax sealant on one end. It’s a little too light for me but the eyebrow pencil applies really smoothly. The wax portion isn’t something for everyday use, maybe only during sweaty events. Be careful with this wax sealant, once it’s on , it’s on… …

Bottom False Eyelashes. These are a perfect length for my eyes and have an invisible band! yippie!

The GLASSES

IMG_9358

I’m gunning for Ray Bans Glasses when I’ve saved enough . Meanwhile, I found these at UENO and loved them to bits! My mommy has one too, in black. Only thing I don’t like about this is that the lenses suck, so I’ve got to change them!

THE LIPS

Got a candy doll lip eraser and NYX Black Label Lipstick in Nude. I like the color so much but it  looks so awful with my dry lips. I guess I really have to exfoliate my lips, apply lip balm, lip eraser and than this nude lipstick can sit nicely …

Pardon the color of this picture, the lighting in my room is currently : BLUE. Yup, my hubby fixed a blue light while I was in Japan. He says it will turn white.  hmm…  Oh , it was his birthday just a few days ago , so HAPPY BIRTHDAY ONCE AGAIN BABY, I know u read my blog too! hehe

THE SKIN

Hehe… I went crazy for DHC but I had to control myself. My sister was on the verge of killing me cause all I did was “OOhh” and “AAAhhh” at all the drugstores…. I’m sorry.. A makeup and skincare addict will always be a pain in the ass in JAPAN!

IMG_9357

Bought this SANA Face Soap. I really like this range so I thought I would try this. Haven’t seen this in Watson or maybe I’m just blind. I do intend to try SANA  UV base in future too!

Yea,  I think alot of people have given rave reviews for DHC ACEROLA LOTION. Should be really good. Thinking of giving this to my brother to use. Yes, I have a handsome, single, younger brother:P

 IMG_9353 I had to get myself a Vitacreme B12! ENA has done an awesome review on this…

IMG_9356 I am dedicated to finding a cheaper , higher quality Sunblock, cause Dr Secrets is kinda expensive for such a small bottle! I’ll be testing DHC and Ettusais as u can see !

 

IMG_9363

I love my SANA OIL CLEANSER, but this bottle was pretty cheap and I liked the color of it! hahaha… I will update on HIPITCH Deep Cleansing ( A VERY SILLY NAME for an oil remover!)

 

PICTURES in Matsumoto Kiyoshi

If this chain ever comes to Singapore, I will give all my credit  cards to my hubby for safe keeping… serious  ><

Cosmetics Galore

Japanese Lippies!!! YUMMY!

IMG_8708 

My Favourite LIQUID Eyeliner Brand: EXCEL!

 IMG_8734 IMG_8733IMG_8732

COFFRET D’OR & Shiseido Maquillage

IMG_8730

Saw MAX FACTOR there… but didn’t buy anything… Although I did like their foundations a long time ago and I absolutely hate their mascaras, cause it makes my lashes look clumpy, short and droopy!! No no no!

IMG_8731

Shampoo Galore

IMG_8719

 

I was mighty ambitious and wanted to squeeze in pages from some of my favourite Japanese Magazines, but this post is so long already… and I feel like I’ve been writting 4ever.

I really love SHEL’TTER for the street fashion( its so cool), popteen(great makeup tutorials) and JACK STREET( cool men’s style!).. I think I will save pictures from these magazines and more for the next post.

I gave my strawberry sponge curlers to my mummy, they did nothing for me :(

You have great taste in headbands! I love them all!

I used to love watching Care Bears too but I don't think I understood what was going on, I was too young hahaa

Blovet Beauty said...

I had to exercise a ginormous amt of willpower in there!
U know Blair, I wana review so much stuff too! Thankfully, my skin reacts pretty fast to creams and what not, so I'll know soon if a cream is a keeper or a dumper.
HAHAHAH MR BLOVET BEAUTY!!! GOT to let him hear that!!! muhahaha

With Love, Elle said...

Blovet Beauty said...

Blair, I'm sticking to my 2 months no buy and I think all this stuff and Dee's swap is going to tide me through my first ever, makeup diet! hahaha when u are through with ur no buy, do try urban decay and lavshuca, their color payoff is lovely!

Blovet Beauty said...

Blovet Beauty said...

well I'm going on a 2 month no buy so i feel like my haul makes up for it!! hehehe Kawaii stuff are so hard to resist!

Dee said...

I can't wait for you to do looks with those palettes! I'm glad you got a lot of stuff before you go on your No-Buy. I think its going to be difficult. You must tell how you get through the temptation, lol. If I could find the nearest Japan Town here, I'd go there everyday, haha. I've been hearing great things about Vitacreme B12 too! And you got Ettusais! I like that brand. I can't wait to read your future reviews!<3333

FriendzCentury said...

Wow, so many goodies shown all in one post, Japan most definitely have THE best drugstores, thanks for sharing all your great pics with us, and I look forward to seeing your looks with the new palettes you've purchased.

CHEECHUN™ said...

Can't wait for the reviews! Maybe i'll ask my relatives there to send me some products!

amynaree said...

Yumeko said...

Shopn'Chomp said...

Blovet Beauty said...

Frendz, I totally agree.
Japan = Makeup/SKINCARE HEAVEN

Chee, how about the budget airlines? the service is actually pretty good! hehehe.. But Japan isn't cheap, I had to save up for this trip too :)

Hey Amy, yup! Glad u liked my glasses.... I was searching for other products in the acerola line but managed to grab hold of this lotion only... :( other than that, shopping is wicked there!!!

Yumeko sweetie, ur post always have products that leave me in awe! U are really lucky to stay in JAPAN- I would be super broke if I lived there!!

THanks LISA! Elmos and carebears are so dang cute:))

Shanghainese Dumpling said...

Well DOne with all those shopping, so admire you, I just spotted your Sana consealer it's the Crocodile one, I've got the bear one I wonder what's the difference, mine is a yellow gel what about yours?

Blair said...

Did you tell him about the Mr Blovet Beauty thing? What was his response? I don't know his name, so the only thing that I could think of is that hahaa~

Meeep! Wait for my package to arrive first before you get anything from Rimmel!

Fifi said...

Blovet Beauty said...

ENA! errr... I actually wanted to get the BEAR ONE but I knew I could actually find it in SaSa over here in Spore... the Crocodile one is a light beige color and seems to give nice natural coverage:) Mr crocodile has a velvety feel to it too...
