Last week, I went on a trip to Tokyo with my friend and had an amazing time. We visited a lot of different cultural sites as well as shopping districts and I ended up buying a few things. I picked up a lot of beauty goodies as well as random items that caught my eye. While I didn’t bring back any clothes, Tokyo is the place to go if you’re interested in purchasing unique styles of clothing. Next time I visit, I’ll definitely make sure to bring a bigger suitcase.
I’ve been wanting to try out Dolly Wink lashes for the longest time but they were just too expensive online. While they aren’t cheap in Japan either, they do cost a lot less than they do in other countries. From what I know, Dolly Wink lashes are designed by model Tsubasa Masuwaka and made by Koji, a Japanese cosmetics company.
There were a lot of different brands and types of lashes available in Japan but I decided to go for Dolly Wink as I have been eyeing them for a long time. I ended up purchasing lashes in the styles 1 Dolly Sweet, 9 Natural Dolly, 19 Sweet Lady, and 15 Pure Girl. Out of all the lashes, 1 Dolly Sweet is definitely the most glamorous and the rest are quite natural. I really love all the lashes I purchased and they’re super comfortable while still giving a sweet, fluttery look. I also really love that they have clear bands as it makes them look a lot more natural.
To go along with the lashes, I got clear lash glue as well as a cute case for my lashes. Of course, I also had to get their eyeliner that I had heard so much about. So far, I’ve been enjoying all the Dolly Wink products and I’ll definitely be writing up a post sometime soon that includes these products.
While shopping in Don Quijote, a discount chain store in Japan, I came across these bath salt-ish products. I can’t read Japanese so I didn’t exactly know what I was purchasing at the time, but after doing a bit of research online (google is seriously my best friend) I found out that these are bath salts in the Bihadu No Yu ‘Beautiful Skin’ selection from Kracie. This box has a selection of four different types of salts that each recreate a different Japanese onsen (hot spring). Japanese onsen are very popular and the minerals in the water are supposed to be beneficial for the skin, body, and mind. The four varieties in this box recreate the Ureshino Onsen (嬉野), Kitsuregawa Onsen (喜連川), Naruko Onsen (鳴子), and Ryujin Onsen (龍神). I found all this information from this great blog post <here>. If you’re interested in this product, be sure to check this post out! I’ll also be trying out all the packs and updating with a more informative post sometime soon.
Strolling through another beauty store, I saw a lot of nail art products. I wanted to bring back more polishes, but due to lack of space, I ended up choosing one light blue polish and white iridescent nail glitter. The nail polish swatch for this polish had a really interesting texture so I’m looking forward to trying it out. Not to mention, how can you resist the adorable Little Twin Stars packaging!?
Here, you can also see two adorable pairs of earrings that I picked up in Harajuku. The pineapple earrings actually ended up being clip-ons (which were extremely popular and all over Tokyo), but I’m planning to take them apart and put real earring backings on them.
