Hi guys! Our family just got back from a 9-day trip to Japan/Korea and I figured it would be fun to showcase some of the things I bought while I was there. We didn’t really have that much time to go shopping since we were on a ship most of the time (Princess Cruises FTW!), but we still managed to hit up a few stores during our stay there (mostly during our first two days since we didn’t board the ship until the 2nd day).
First, here are some of the snacks that I had left after our trip:
Ezra and I had a lot of fun raiding Japanese convenience stores and 100-yen shops for various sweets. Japanese candy is the best! I bought most of my pasalubong from there as well. Unfortunately, this is all I had left by the end of our trip because Ezra and I ate most of them (and gave some away). I wish I took a picture of the strawberry mochi waffle that Ezra and I loved, but you’ll probably see us eating it in a vlog when I get around to editing it – maybe next year? Eek! (Edit : I posted the vlog at the end of THIS BLOG ENTRY.)
I also bought some green tea powder – at least that’s what I think these are since I can’t read Japanese. I’m pretty sure the one on the right is instant green milk tea, and the one on the left says “Macha Cappuccino”, but I’m not really sure about the one in the middle.
I wasn’t planning on buying beauty products during this trip, but Ezra and I found ourselves inside a HUGE beauty store in Harajuku and I just couldn’t help myself.
Despite only having about $10 with me that day (since I really wasn’t planning on spending a lot), I ended up with these three items from Canmake (I had to borrow money from Ezra to pay for them). I picked up a powder foundation, a lipstick and a highlighting powder. I haven’t tried any of them yet but I hope they’re good. I’ve heard a lot of good things about Canmake.
These were a little cheaper since I got them from Daiso. I bought a blush and highlight duo, an eyebrow pencil, some face blotting paper and a makeup brush cleaner. I’ve tried the blush and highlight duo and it’s alright. It’s not that pigmented, but what do you expect for 100 yen. (I actually like the subtle glow and color it gives – I don’t normally wear blush but I wanted to give it a try.)
I also bought two packs of makeup remover wipes from Daiso. Initially I only bought the one at the top, because I ran out of cotton balls which I use to remove my makeup at night, and I didn’t pack my cleansing cream, so I used these instead. They suck at removing waterproof eyeliner and mascara, but they’re alright for taking off your foundation.
