My first Tokyo Beauty Haul!

 

Hey everyone!

I’m very excited to show you my first Japanese beauty haul! I’ve been lemming for NARS since forever and it was on top of my list when I came to Japan. I picked 2 products from the brand – a blush and an eye shadow duo. From the more budget end of things – I picked a few products from Maybelline, L’Oreal (though they are much pricier here as compared to India), Rimmel, Majolica Majorca, Shiseido, Canmake and Kanebo. Enjoy the pics!

Rimmel London

 

Nude in the Box Eye shadow palette (1260 JPY, Rs 746)

 

Considering how pricey imported brands are here, I thought this 5 shadow palette is quite a steal at its price! I love the shade combination – 3 shimmery shades with 2 mattes. I can’t wait to try this one!

L’Oreal Paris

 

Lucent Magique Pure Light Primer (1680 JPY, Rs 995)

Shine Caresse Lip color – Bella (1575 JPY, Rs 932!! – Rs 499 in India)

 

I’ve heard good reviews of the Lucent Magique range in general and I liked the consistency of the primer. Hoping it turns out good! The Shine Caresse lip colors have just launched in India (at such an amazing price too!) and I couldn’t resist picking one after seeing so many great reviews!  Would have picked another shade had it not been so expensive here.

Japanese Brands

 

Playgirl False Lashes – Play Cute #2 (1050 JPY, Rs 621)

Dear Laura Pa speckled nail paint (399 JPY, Rs 236)

Shiseido Integrate Lash Primer (1050 JPY, Rs 621)

Kanebo Lipstick RS 03 (895 JPY, Rs 530)

Canmake Cream Cheek CL04 (600 JPY,  Rs 355)

 

Integrate is a Shiseido brand that is very commonly available here and is decently priced too. I’ve never tried a lash serum/primer, excited to see how this turns out! Kanebo and Canmake are both Japanese brands and the cream blush is one of the best selling Canmake products. The Kanebo lipstick feels quite luxurious in its sleek packaging and smooth texture – love it!

Eye makeup products like mascara, liner, brow products and false lashes are VERY popular in Japan. Most brands have cheaper eye shadows and mascaras than lipsticks. You can’t miss false lashes when you’re here and I picked up this set of 5 from a small store at the station. The range of false lashes here is amazing and you see women wearing them quite regularly here!

Puff de Cheek  -Raspberry Macaron (1360 JPY, Rs 805)

 

I picked this only because I found it incredibly cute! This brand has really pretty packaging – its part of the Shiseido empire.

Shiseido Aqualabel

 

Skin care kit (1070 JPY, Rs 633)

 

I was in need of a few skin products and I really liked this mini kit. The products will easily last me a month if not more. It consists of a Creamy oil (oil cleansers are very popular here), Milky mousse foam (face wash), Moisture Lotion (like toner) and Moisture Emulsion (moisturizer). These kind of Shiseido kits are easily available in convenience stores here.

NARS

 

Blush – Torrid (3000 JPY, Rs 1776)

Eye shadow duo – Surabaya (4000 JPY, Rs 2368)

 

NARS has such an amazing blush range, it was hard to narrow down my choices but I went with Torrid – a peachy coral with gold shimmer. I checked out the infamous Orgasm but it seemed very shimmery on my skin with more shimmer than color. I was confused between Surabaya and Cordura eye shadow duos – went with Surabaya in the end. I also wanted the Satin Lip pencil but the shade I wanted (Luxembourg) was sold out!

  1. Gorgeous haul! How cute IS that Puff de Cheek packaging? The puff makes me want to pet it! Please review Shiseido Aqualabel range! I’ve heard so much about it!

  2. It seems like you have looted the whole store!!!!! Wonderful! Poor Japanese they will be thinking how less the cosmetics and makeup prices are in India, just like the way we think about the US!!!

  3. I was looking at the primer from Maybelline too in Singapore. You still got it at a decent price. Out there it was coming to 1000 bucks almost. Saw so many nice things in these brands but didnt pick anything coz of the price 🙁 Love your haul! esp the Japanese stuff and that Rimmel kit looks sweet!

  4. Eeek I have the same Canmake blush!! I picked it up from Sasa in Singapore! I’m sure you won’t regret the purchases, they look swell =]]

  5. amazing haul….

    u live in the costliest city of the world now… :p naturally these are pricy… but the brighter side is u get shiseido at jaw-dropping prices! wohoo….. 😀

  6. That is one awesome Haul.. And how cute is that blush case. Looove it..
    The NARS products look so tempting… Can’t take my eyes off.
    do we get these Rimmel Eyeshadow palettes in India too. I’d love to check out.

  7. Everything else might be more expensive. But the Shiseido prices? Woah…. for a Shiseido-obsessed person like me… Japan would be on the cards just for a mega Shiseido haul 🙂

  8. Great haul! Looking forward to your reviews on the NARS one specially since these past few days I’ve been craving nars like anything. Those jap make up, the packaging is so kawaii!! 😀

  9. lovely haul Ankita…and nars blush price has increased here in united states its 29$ now! and that rimmel palette looks gorgeous definitely checking out if its available here!

  10. Surabaya is one of my favorite NARS shadows..well favorite shadows really…gorgeous warm browns! Can’t wait to see the makeup looks you try out with these … Haven’t tried Torrid but going by your photo, it does look like the perfect peach 🙂

  11. Beautiful stuff!!! So excited to read your reviews. But Nars is not a Japanese brand.. It's actually French (by Francois Nars who's a make up artist) and a blush here in US is priced at $29 a piece.

  12. drooling over the pics 🙂 & yeah you paid almost double for that L’Oreal lip stain (glad to be in India!) Review the MNY Baby skin soon. Some people claim it to be better than Benefit Porefessional. Hope they launch it soon in India 🙂 NARS blush looks wonderful 🙂

  13. Amazing haul n can’t wait for your reviews.. M loving the maybelline pore minimized but as usual availability is the issue.. N that rimmel palette stole my heart.. My nars picks wud have been orgasm definitely n albatross highlighter..
