Japanese Makeup Haul!!!

Yeah you were all waiting for this, weren’t you! 😛

Personally, I didn’t think I went completely overboard with makeup shopping. For one thing, I was supremely worried about wandering around Tokyo at night by myself to go shopping. Why I had to go shopping in the evenings was because my days were filled with sightseeing! And then, by the evening, I was so tired from walking around all day, I didn’t spend too much time shopping.  Also, I was shopping rather critically: lots of Japanese makeup is super sparkly and sheer. If it wasn’t something I’d truly use, I passed on it – so that left me with a more narrow band of items I’d spend my money on (not to mention, haul home).  Here’s what I got:

CANMAKE
Japan_makeup_haul2016_2
• Marshmallow Finish Powder in MO Matte Ochre and MB Matte Beige Ochre
• Cream Cheek in #05 Sweet Apricot and #14 Apple Cream Red (I swear I had another shade in my basket but it didn’t make it home with me!)
• Gokubuto mascara (volumizing)
• Gokunobi mascara (lengthening)
• Colourful Nails polish in #33 Pink Glitter
• Lasting Multi Eyebase WP (eye shadow primer)
I had some ideas of brands I’d want to look at when I was in Japan. I originally glossed over Canmake as being too girly for me. But it turns out their products are quite well reviewed and very reasonably priced! I ended up researching a lot on @cosme awards (which seems to be the Japanese makeup Bible) to find out which items to try and several of these were award winners. I do wish I’d gotten more cheek products – they have so many cute ones to choose from.

Cezanne
Japan_makeup_haul2016_3
• Silk Touch Cheek in 02 Coral
• Toneup Eye Shadow in 02 Rose-brown
Another cheap and cheerful brand, I’d never heard of it but the products felt so buttery and decently pigmented, I had to pick up a couple of items to try out.

KATE
Japan_makeup_haul2016_4
• Lash Maximizer Eyelash Plus (mascara base)
• Brown Shade eyes palette in BR-3 Sepia
• Rouge HG lipstick in BE-33
This brand is an old favourite of mine – I’d bought some stuff in Hong Kong before and continued to ordered items online. This time I was a bit more choosy and only picked up 3 things based on good reviews online.

InteGrate
Japan_makeup_haul2016_5
• Cat Look Liquid Liner in BR660 brown and BK999 black
• Lash Real Glamour Mascara + free lash curler
• Pure Big Eyes palette in OR334
• Designing Veil palette in Bronze
One of my new favourite Japanese brands! So many great items in the line, I could hardly decide. It’s the perfect mix of whimsy while still being classy.  It’s a sub-brand of Shiseido and the quality reflects it.

Excel
Japan_makeup_haul2016_6
• Skinny Rich Shadow palette in SR04 Smoky Brown
• Gradation Cheek N in GC05 Apple Red
• Powder and Pencil Eyebrow in PD01 Natural Brown
I’d never heard of this brand and I was completely enamoured by their wearable eye shadow quads – they were the least shimmery of the ones I encountered (but I limited myself to just one to try out first). The brow pencil won an @cosme award. I’ve since learned that is a sub-brand of Sana. I’m interested in exploring more from this brand.

Majolica Majorca
Japan_makeup_haul2016_7
• Shadow Customize in BE286 and GD822
• Puff de Cheek in PK 302 Strawberry Mix
• Lash King mascara in BK999
Another sub-brand of Shiseido that I love. I’ve had exposure to this brand when I bought some items in Hong Kong. picked up a few items including the cutest little blush!

MUJI
Japan_makeup_haul2016_8
• 4 Color Eye palette in Plum
• Highlight Color in Lavender
• Cheek Color in Rose, Pink, and Orange
• Lip liner in Rose
• Loose Powder refill in Natural
I went to Muji specifically to check out their makeup since we do have a Muji store here, but they don’t carry cosmetics. The products are very reasonably priced, if not a little basic. But I guess it fits in with Muji’s image quite well! I found the concept of the loose powder refill in a pouch really neat, so I had to pick it up – plus, the powder felt so silky when I tested it in the store.

Heroine Make
Japan_makeup_haul2016_9
• Long and Curl Super Waterproof mascara
• Volume and Curl Super Waterproof mascara
I’ve only ever used their liquid liners (which I love) but I’ve heard their mascaras are great too so I picked up both kinds to try.

K-Palette
Japan_makeup_haul2016_10
• Real Lasting Eyeliner 24hr WP in Deep Brown and Brown Black
• 1-Day Magic 3D Palette 01
I could not resist the limited edition Alice in Wonderland packaging on the liners! I’ve used K-Palette liners before and I really like them (in fact, I have one open now, in Deep Brown, but in the regular packaging). The blush / contour palette was not a cheap item so I’m hoping it delivers on its promise of “smaller and defined face” 😆

Esprique
Japan_makeup_haul2016_11
• Customizable eye shadow palette with free refill in PU 100 Misty Purple
• Select Eye Color refills in: BE 303 Mauve Brown and PU 102 Royal Purple
I feared I’d not get my hands on anything from this brand even though I vowed to try at least one thing from it when I was preparing my Japan shopping list. When I finally spotted this brand, I was so impressed with the swatches of these shadows I had to buy them – the purple is a stunner.

MAQuillAGE
Japan_makeup_haul2016_12
• Dramatic Powdery UV Foundation SPF 25 PA++ in OC 10 and corresponding Compact Case DM
• Glossy Nail Colour in RD 747
Japan_makeup_haul2016_13
• Dramatic Mood Veil blush in RD 100 Coral Red
• Dramatic Mood Eyes palette in BE 352 Invisible Wink
• Dramatic Melting Rouge lipstick in BE 322
I had my makeup done at this counter – I’ll write about my experience in more depth in another post. Needless to say, the visit was a fruitful one judging by how many items I picked up! 😛 Oh, and you wouldn’t be surprised to learn this is yet another Shiseido sub-brand.

Daiso
Japan_makeup_haul2016_16
• Sponge cleanser
• Brow pencils – these are made in Korea
• Reusable Silicone Sheet Masks
My favourite dollar store! I hit up a couple of Daisos but I restrained myself.  That silicone face mask won an @cosme award and it’s been raved about online. And I had to pick up another of my favourite sponge cleanser!

mfc (my featuring colors)
Japan_makeup_haul2016_17
• W Color Eyes PK-1
• Blend Color Blush in PK-1
Toward the end of the trip, I was desperate to pick up more makeup that were completely unknown to me. And what better place to buy makeup than at a convenient store? 😆 I got these from FamilyMart which is similar to 7-Eleven and Lawson. Convenient stores in Japan are so awesome. Anyway, back to this brand, it’s apparently a sub-brand of Kanebo. I hope it’s decent quality – there were no testers at the store and I bought purely based on cuteness factor.

Yojiya
Japan_makeup_haul2016_14
• Facial cleansing sponge
• Oil-blotting Facial Paper
• Hand cream
• Facial cotton
Japan_makeup_haul2016_15
• Ebony handle round squirrel eye shadow brush
• Ebony handle “Chikuresu” squirrel blush brush
• Mini mirror
I’ll devote an entry on this brand so I won’t say much except that this was a surprise find in Kyoto and I’m so happy to have discovered it. 🙂

ADDICTION
Japan_makeup_haul2016_18
• Eye shadow palette with refills in: 21 Love Affair (P), 81 Londolozi (M), 69 Flash Back (P), 94 Shangri-La (ME)
• Nail polish in #038 Complex
I was so thrilled to finally come face to face with this brand! I’d call it the Japanese equivalent to Nars – the all black minimalist packaging and the quality / pricing all remind me of Nars. I had to really restrain myself from buying more stuff there. It was bad enough that I didn’t just buy the one eye shadow as I’d planned. What can I say, I’m a sucker for customizable palettes and nail polishes. 😉

Lunasol
Japan_makeup_haul2016_19
• Three-dimensional Eyes palette in #01 Neutral Beige
I’d been wanting to visit a Lunasol counter during my Tokyo stay but never got a chance (I still suspect my SO kept me so busy during the day that I’d be too tired to shop at night!) I finally got a chance at the duty-free shop at the airport, just before I boarded my flight home. I was in a rush and their selection of eye shadow palettes is vast (I’m not kidding, I count 17 types of palettes that Lunasol offers, never mind the colour selections within each). I’m still unsure if I chose well.

THREE
Japan_makeup_haul2016_20
• Balancing Cleansing Oil
I wasn’t planning on getting anything at the THREE counter but I was curious about the oil since it’s their #1 product. It’s about $50 for this bottle! It better make me look like a Japanese soap opera star!

Oshima Tsubaki Camellia Oil
Japan_makeup_haul2016_21
I’ve seen this product recommended as something to try from Japan and I saw it at the airport duty-free, so I decided to try it for a face and / or hair oil.

Sunscreens:
Japan_makeup_haul2016_23
• Allie UV Mineral Moist NEO SPF 50+ PA++++
• Anessa Perfect UV Aqua Booster SPF 50+ PA++++
Despite the abundant selection of sunscreens, I restrained myself to just 2, since I’d recently opened one up, I didn’t want these to expire before I get to use them.

Misc. Skincare:
Japan_makeup_haul2016_22
• Kose Clear Turn Babyish sheet mask (7 in resealable pack)
• random blotting papers
I wasn’t going to get any but I was quite amused at the idea of ¥300 ($3.60 CAD) for 7 sheet masks so I got a pack. I went a bit nuts and picked up blotting sheets everywhere I saw them at a reasonable price.

Accessories:
Japan_makeup_haul2016_24
Greenbell Paragon of Shining Girls Eyelash Comb – I had to buy this for the name alone!
Chasty Natural Type Metallic Mascara Comb 0.74mm – there was another kind that had teeth 1.2mm apart meant for volume type mascaras. Only in Japan you’d get options for mascara comb spacing!
Chasty Shiny Slide brush – this felt super soft and made of natural hairs which is hard to find in a retractable brush
MAQuillAGE Edge Free Eyelash Curler – I already own this (was my HG lash curler before the Surratt came along!) but it was ordered off ebay and it came in a different packaging, so I’m curious if this is the same.
Japan_makeup_haul2016_25
Chasty Make Brush Collection – also natural hair bristles (the Google Translate app keeps showing “mountain wool” which I’m thinking is goat hairs)
Tesshyu Collection Eye Shadow Brush L – found this at a drugstore although it wasn’t cheap ($28 CAD). I just learned from searching online that it’s a sub-brand of Chikuhodo.
Shiseido MAKE Chouetools Face Brush (M) for Cheek – I’ve never heard of this but curiosity got the better of me and I bought it. I’m guessing it’s a cheaper brand of Shiseido just for accessories. Again, although I got it at a drugstore, it wasn’t exactly cheap ($36 CAD)
Japan_makeup_haul2016_26
Shiseido The Makeup Powder Brush – I’d wanted this brush ever since reading about how good the quality is, and I was super sad that Shiseido does not offer its brushes in Canada. This brush is SO soft and silky! And it’s made in Japan. 🙂
Shiseido The Makeup Eye Shadow Brush (S) – and who just buys ONE brush at the makeup counter? No one, that’s who.
Save for the Shiseido The Makeup brushes, these were all random drugstore pick ups. I noted lots of the less expensive accessories were typically made in China or Taiwan so I focused on only items that were made in Japan.

Random Makeup Items:
Japan_makeup_haul2016_27
Palgantong Theatrical Powder in OB Original Beige – I spotted the Palgantong powder at Matsumoto KiYoshi drugstore for a decent price – and even though it’s a Korean-made product, it’s something I’d heard great things about so I decided to pick it up on a whim.
Integrate Gracy White Pact SPF26 PA+++ in OC10 – I’m not entirely sure why there’s an InteGrate and an Integrate Gracy. They’re distinctly different Shiseido sub-brands with completely different packaging and pricing. Gracy is the dull cousin to the flirty InteGrate brand, in my opinion. It is also less expensive. I heard the compact foundation is good, and for less than $20, I was willing to take a chance.
Media Gradation Color Eyeshadow in BR-03 – to me, the Media and Integrate Gracy line-up look really similar. But Media is a little bit less dull. The swatches of this one is a little sheer but really pretty for a subtle look.  This is a Kanebo sub-brand.
Japan_makeup_haul2016_28
Chu Lip Balm in Sweet Pink SPF22 – this is the Japanese version of eos! I was impressed with the high SPF, I hope it doesn’t taste like chemicals. Oh and it’s also tinted.
Ettusais Lash Version Up mascara base – this won an @cosme award and wasn’t too expensive – it features a comb wand rather than the traditional bristles, so we’ll see it works.

Some of the pretties lined up:
Japan_makeup_haul2016_29

Whew… and despite all that, there were a few items I wished I had picked up:
Japan_makeup_haul2016_30
Visee Glossy Rich Eyes quad in PK3 Burgundy Red – I couldn’t decide on the colour and by the time I was ready to buy, I couldn’t find a Visee display!
Ettusais Premium Perfect Clear Up Concealer – loved the silky texture of this and the coverage was exceptional, but the store was sold out of it, and I couldn’t find it elsewhere
MSH Loveliner – this was advertised everywhere as the top selling liquid liner in Japan, I debated about buying it since it was more expensive than other ones – by the time I decided I wanted to buy it, I couldn’t find it!
Hakuhodo brushes – ugh, this is still a sore subject with me! I had the opportunity to go to either the Kyoto or the Tokyo Hakuhodo stores but I did not manage to get to either of them. I will explain in more detail in my Yojiya post. At least I can order Hakuhodo brushes online… but still, not experiencing the Hakuhodo store in person makes me 😥
I’m planning on buying the Visee and Ettusais items online soon as a treat for myself for my birthday next month. 😉

Next week I’ll show pictures of the stores and makeup displays! And I’ll share some tips about shopping for Japanese makeup. 🙂 You’ll be seeing reviews and swatches of these products in the months to come. Have you tried any of the items I got?

  1. Woah 😍 Look at all your stash!
    There’s too many things here that I’d like to hear about here – The babyish face mask makes me laugh! I’m imagining baby skin/baby lips from maybelline rebranding using babies as the face – they’re missing a trick.
    Those Esprique shadows look real pretty.
    Keep wanting to order some japanese/chinese/korean products online so I’m keeping my eyes peeled for reviews to see if there’s anything I can get my hands on!

    1. The Japanese LOVE using baby images on their beauty products, it makes me laugh too! That’s why I had to get it lol.
      The pictures I have of the Esprique eye shadows don’t even do them justice because they’re inside the packaging but omg, like BUTTER. And so pigmented. I hope they wear well on the lids so I can buy MORE!
      I shall prioritize these to review… so backlogged! I need to take a week off just to take photos lol!

  2. Wait so this is how much you buy after you’ve been sightseeing all day and are exhausted? I mean not that we’d expect anything less than you but I’m kind of in awe. Lol

    I tried to keep track of all the things that I thought looked amazing so I could name them off but halfway through I just gave up! All of it looks amazing! Looking forward to your reviews!

    1. Hahaha, yes this is me shopping at half the capacity I normally operate at! 😛 There were soooo many other things I wish I had the time / energy to peruse but I was in such a rush or not in the best state. I would have done SO much more damage otherwise! 😆
      I haven’t worn ANY of the items yet. I need to take pictures of everything in their pristine form first! Ugh, the life of a blogger….

  4. Oh my god, so much makeup! haha. Everything looks amazing. Where to even begin?
    The first pic of your Canmake stash is so…PINK. I can’t believe how cute the packaging of the blushes are, though! I’d want one of every colour lined up to display! 😛
    You got your hands on the Majolica Majorca Lash King! How awesome. That one is definitely on my shopping list for the next time we visit Asia.
    I like the Esprique packaging! It looks like it’s kinda blingy, but not too kiddish? You chose some gorgeous shadow colours, too.
    Your Addiction purchases – LOVE! Such beautiful eye shadow shades, and love the taupe-y polish. The packaging looks so much like NARS, it’s crazy!
    I know how you feel about the Lunasol palette (the one you picked looks really nice). There is way too much to choose from, and you really need some time to mull over the choices! I was with my parents when we saw the Lunasol display in Hong Kong, so I had to pick something quickly instead of standing there for an hour deciding like I would have if I had been with my fiancé 😛
    Those Shiseido brushes are swoon-worthy! Were they expensive?
    Aww, too bad there were still a couple of items you didn’t end up getting your hands on, especially Hakuhodo! Good thing you can buy Visee and Ettusais online though (that Visee palette…love. Again.) Your birthday is the perfect excuse to treat yourself!

    Liked by 1 person

    1. Yes, Canmake is super PINK! It’s geared toward quite a young demographic I think… 😛 Just wait til you see the displays ha!
      The Majolica Majorca Lash King was a last minute pick up. I almost didn’t because the last time I tried Majolica Majorca mascara (the Lash Expander) it irritated my eyes. 😦
      At the Lunasol counter, I basically ran up to them and said, I’m in a rush, I want to buy an eye shadow palette, what’s your most popular one? And they showed me this other option which I found too glittery / sheer. So I asked them to show me other ones that’s popular and I settled on this. The SA’s were awesome though, rushed my item to the check-out and had me out the door in less than 5 minutes! 😆
      Just wait til you see the swatches of the Addiction eye shadow, OMG the pink / coral shade Shangri-la is so outside my comfort zone but it is drop dead gorgeous! 😮
      The Shiseido brushes weren’t bad at all! I believe the powder brush was $68 CAD, and the eye shadow was around $21 CAD. I was shocked they weren’t more expensive, to be honest.
      But the most drool-worthy brushes were the ones from Yojiya… you know the Surratt one we felt up at Sephora? It’s even MORE soft than that! And also, shockingly, it wasn’t that expensive! The blush brush was $65 CAD!

      Liked by 1 person

      1. Oh no! Fingers crossed the Lash King won’t be irritating to you!
        Lol, of COURSE you would rush to get makeup five minutes before boarding a plane! So great that they were able to help you in such a short amount of time, though!
        I can’t wait to see ALL swatches of these products! Swoooon.
        Wow, the Shiseido brushes are much cheaper than I thought they would be too! And is it even humanly possible for a brush to get any softer than the Surratt one? What is it made of, angel hair?? How come you didn’t end up buying any Yojiya brushes?
        Looking forward to the post about the makeup displays. And makeup shopping TIPS! That would be so helpful! I feel like it’s really overwhelming shopping for Asian makeup because of the huge selection, especially when you can’t read the packaging.

        1. I didn’t think it was humanly possible to make such soft silky brushes but somehow Yojiya managed to. They’re made of squirrel! Now I want to catch a squirrel to see if they’re that soft! 😛
          I didn’t end up buying Hakuhodo brushes… because I spent my time chasing the Yojiya ones in a tight time frame. And then I got lost, and then ran out of time. 😥 I will tell the tale when I review the Yojiya brushes! 😥
          I posted the makeup displays today! Enjoy! 😀

    1. Apparently you can use them 2 ways: 1) over serum 2) over a disposable paper sheet sheet mask
      The idea is that the sheet mask will help with absorption of the products, rather than the product evaporating. It has really good reviews online so I’m interested to see how I get on with it! For ¥100 (approx $0.95 USD) it was worth a try!

  5. Holy shit, haha. Quite the mother-load! I hope you have fun playing with all of your goodies, though I’m surprised you didn’t pick up more than 1 nail polish. Gotta love the marketing on the babyish sheet masks!!! I think it’s neat how many of the brands packaging reminds me of brands you’d find over here. The Lunasol palette for example reminded me of Charlotte Tilbury. And the MTC blush reminded me of Physicians Formula.

    1. Trust me, I wanted to haul more nail polishes but I was worried about breakage. Also, their nail polishes are EXPENSIVE. From the drugstore, they were around $10 an 8ml bottle. I figured their nail polishes can’t be THAT different than what we have…
      Oh I never thought about Lunasol as similar to Charlotte Tilbury! And you’re right, the MTC is similar to PF. I guess nothing is that original anymore huh!

    I was taking track of the brands that are familiar like Kate, InteGrate, Majolica, K-Palette, Heroine Make, Muji and I lost track.. I can’t believe I’ve known such. I also have the Palgantong but still haven’t used it.
    You’re really a good makeup shopping buddy. 👍

  11. Amazing Haul! I’m really interested in that Addiction Line. When my dad went, he bought different products. He picked up a lot of SK-II, BA Pola, SUQQU, Three, and AQMW and a few others. But the items were really costly. Like the BA Pola eye cream was over 300.00 US. I’d like to go again and do another haul with some less expensive lines but I was asking for the most pretisge lines they had over there for this particular run since it was my first time. Now, I’m afraid to open! LOL.

      It’s a trap… you’ll love it and now you’ll need to book a flight to buy everything, or else pay exorbitant prices from online stores! So amazing that our dad picked up all these items for you! Was he armed with a detailed shopping list?

      1. He had a shopping list YES. Plus, he had an escort for the area that he was in that took him to all the beauty stores. I forget the name of the zone but it was all cosmetic stores. So, he had a person for the afternoon that took him places and helped him also. I just cracked open all the SK-II stuff he brought which is different than what I see here. I need more though MORE MORE MORE! MORE MORE MORE! Better to be addicted to this than heroine! LOLLOL
