Going to Tokyo this summer! Makeup/general suggestions please!

I am making a short trip to Tokyo this summer. While a lot of it will be sight seeing, I most definitely will curve out time for shopping. So I just want to hear everyone's suggestions on things worth picking up!

 

I am am not looking for foundations, concealors or powder (unless it's absolutely amazing, contemplating on Cle de peau concealor which is cheaper there). No eyeshadows either, maybe a few mascaras, liquid eyeliners, lip products and as many blushes/cheek products as I see fit :smileywink:

and most certainly brushes. (I want to get some hakuhodo or chikuhodo, but any other suggestions are totally welcome) I would prefer something that's more accessible.

 

I recall reading about some products that aren't sold outside of Japan (makeup), and I remember making a note to myself that I should get them when I go but I can't seem to remember. Anyone?

 

So far (just so we don't duplicate) I have my eyes on
-Kate mascara base
-Kate cream blush (that comes in a jar)
-Jill Stuart blush (just because it's so pretty) 

-Majorica majorca mascar

 

Lastly any tips on good stores, getting around, places to see? Any suggestions are highly appreciated! 

 

Last lastly, any other non-makeup related must buys? 

 

Thanks tons!

I would get the Guerlain blanc de perles just because they are so hard to find reliably here in the US. Also their rouge automatic lippies that they made just for the asian markets. They are all so pretty!

As far as Guerlain blanc de perles go, I just saw this on sephora china. I thought of getting a pressed version of the meteorites (let's face it, I am not getting the voyage version any time soon) and I have always been intrigued by the white balls. Anyone possibly tried this? Know anything about it?

Anessa Sunscreen from Shiseido - Not oily, very light thin consistency so it's easy to apply. Also has a high sunscreen factor (SPF 50). This is my HG for sunscreens. I use the gold one but there are other types as well. I've heard amazing things about all of them.

shiseido



Kiss Me Mascara & Eyeliner - I have their mascara & eye makeup remover. Doesn't smudge. Heard great things about their eyeliner as well.

Can't really think of anything more right now.... Check out the Cosme awards for skincare/makeup. You really can't go wrong with Japanese brands. Lots of great packaging as well.

Royce food product is AWESOME!

choco chips, nutty bar, green tea chocolate!!!

Greentea kitkat, and the famous white chocolate biscuit!upload_5327509736737077649.jpg

and this is good for sore throat~ kinda medicine-ish product, its convenient and works well when you just have the symtoms.upload_8489670904590319725.jpg

 

Buy them at the airport duty free~ a lot cheaper especially they just raise the sales tax.

If you like pretty blush you CANT miss Laduree! but it could be a little pricy, not the blush itself, but the pretty container.upload_3977059445032982539.pngupload_6088783998775786184.png

 

Ettusais lip balm is quite nice~

 

And you can try your luck at the Daiso (100yen shop)

they do have reli good stuff~

Not makeup-related, but I recommend the Tokyo Banana treats - they come in original and chocolate flavor. I got  them as souvenirs for family and friends and everyone loved them!tokyo-banana-unwrapped.jpgbananas2.jpg
