Hi guys!

Collecting and trying new cosmetics are so addicting..

The rule of thumb is the more you pay, better results you get from beauty products. The opposite is sometimes true, especially for Japanese drugstore cosmetics.

Today I will tell you best Japanese drugstore cosmetics that you should try while you are in Japan!

Kate is Japanese cosmetics brand that has many great selling items.

We love its simplicity of the packaging 🙂 Here are two items from Kate that I want you guys to try.

This eyebrow powder has probably been the biggest hit of all Kate items.

Pretty much every Japanese cosme-lover owns or has tried one of this product.

It consists of three different brown shades, which makes easy brow drawing. The lightest shade could be used as subtle contouring as well.

Also has a little mirror to touch up your makeup and a brush inside. Nothing excessive but so thoughtful and well-designed.

I am so in love with this product. This mascara base contains tons of white fibers which add lenghes to your eyelashes, and will keep your curls throughout the day.

I always have two or three of these in stock at home, my makeup is not complete without it.

 

2. Majolica Majorca

Aren’t they adorable? Majolica Majorca is known for its cute packaging. Here is my favorite item from Majolica Majorca.

 

Shadow Customize

This is meant to be like a collection piece and each color is only 5 dollars (500 yen)! Great for someone who wants to try a new color but not sure how it works out on you.

3. CANMAKE

I probably got my first makeup item from CANMAKE. It’s so cheap yet sure does its job!

All of their items are cute and relatively small, convenient to carry in your makeup pochet.

Marshmallow finish powder

Of all their best selling items, this is super well-known. This powder softens and brightens your skin tone, erasing your pores. I definitely recommend it!

Lasting Multi Eye Base

This guy is the best bang for the buck. It’s only 500 yen and prevents your eye shadow from getting messed up in a crease, and enhances the color of your eye shadow!

I have tried so many eyeshadow base to find the best one, but never thought CANMAKE would have it for this price point 🙂

 

Hope it helps!
