Japan Haul

Hi everyone!

I arrived back home on Tuesday after a cancellation at the beginning of the trip and many delays in subsequent flights. Thank you, Jetstar, I won’t be taking you any time soon.

Anyway I thought I’d share the things I bought with you while I was in Tokyo, I didn’t buy much, just things I thought I might need such as mascara. Most of my money went towards food though, glorious food.

Enough blabbering, let’s see the goodies!




Suqqu Cheek Brush
Suuqu Brow Pen – 01 Moss Green


Chikuhodo RC-1
Chikuhodo G15

Swatches: Top – Suqqu Brow Pen in Moss Green and Maybelline Lip Polish in RS806
Bottom: Rimmel Nude in a Box Palette

I bought Suqqu and Chikuhodo at the Isetan Department Store in Shinjuku. Interestingly enough, I couldn’t find a permanent Chikuhodo counter, they were having a pop-up counter at Isetan until the 3rd of December which is why I managed to get my grubby hands on that glorious, ginormous brush.

The drugstore items were purchased at either Sun Drug, Matsumoto KiYoshi (my favourite drug store!) or Don Quijote, all in Shinjuku save for the Rimmel palette. I found that at the Sony Building Plaza store in near Ginza station which randomly had Bourjois at cheaper prices than here in Australia and American chocolate as well as French skincare brands like Avene and Bioderma.

So far I’m loving the brushes and the palette, I haven’t opened the mascaras yet because I’ve got a few open and it’d be wasteful not to finish those up. Regardless, I’m keen to use the Japanese mascaras!

Reviews are coming for other products, I’m trying to get back into the routine of things.

Have you used anything above? How do you find them?
