January | Japan Beauty Haul

Thursday, January 28, 2016

I've been mostly enjoying the winter weather (and winter food, hah), but of course I found time in my day to go and shop for a bit of beauty products.

I'm a very big fan of Canmake, actually, even if their quality is sometimes all over the place. Still, though, when it's good, it's really good. I decided to try their Perfect Multi Eyes in 01 because the swatches were lovely on my arm, though not incredibly pigmented, and I did like the nice choice of colours in something so compact.

I also went ahead and bought their new Lasting Multi Eye Base because it's been receiving some stellar reviews. It's a primer for your eyeshadow, eyeliner, and even eyebrows. I have tried it and it is something (more on that soon). The Powder Eyebrow was a little spur of the moment buy, but it was cheap and looked quite nice and natural when I tried it at the drugstore.

I'm sure there's no need for introduction to the Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler and the Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara (btw, where has this BEEN all my life????). The Maquillage Concealer Liquid in Light is perfect for brightening my undereye under my favourite concealer--it looks so much more natural and lifting. Oh, and it has SPF10!

The only brand here I took a chance on was Susie N.Y., which I've never heard of before, but I loved the packaging for their blushes and, happily, I absolutely love the finish of the Blush On.

So far, it's only been a few days in, so I haven't had all the time in the world to really spend on makeup. I've been reserving a bit of my budget for some nice watercolour paper, as well as more skincare. But all in all, it's been a pretty good haul!

  1. I really want to try that Maybelline mascara! I hope they launch it here soon!

    1. It's great! I really hope so too! It's a little expensive here so I'm hoping it'll be much more affordable if it reaches the Philippines!!
