3 Japanese items that I use and like:


I love the lash base because it makes my flat asian lashes actually hold curl, and it increases length and volume quite a lot by itself.


I use this eyeliner a lot because it's so easy to use. Just twist-click and ready to go xD

And I'm seriously thinking about getting some Koji eye talk to increase the size of my double eyelid!

here are 3 items that i am currently using:

+ rohto lycee eye drops for contacts - by far the best eye drops i've ever used. i especially love the scent!

3 Japanese items that I mostly use :


this powder is unclog pores, the shades suit my skin and have cute packaging.


I like this purple eyeshadow, it makes my eyes look gorgeous without being like have been punch

jeanchristie said...

Thanks for the giveaway!

I've only tried one Japanese product before which is not listed in Japan Beauty's site (SK II Miracle Water).

Here's my two cents on it:
I find that its really good for the overall maintenance of my skin. Refines the pores and gives my skin a healthy glow.

I'd love to try the following though :)

1. Anna Sui's luxury face powder (

2. Dr. Ci: Labo BB Perfect Cream Shiny (

Unknown said...

oo. loving the japanese products :)
haven't tried any yet.




I wonder why the last eyeliner is so expensive.
they sound great to me!

Sweetsnow said...

I'm currently using this and I love how it extends my lashes without weighing my lashes. The price is also relatively cheap.

I stopped taking this as it's rather costly. The instant bottled drinks are more effective, as you can see the glow on your face quite quickly. However, although this powder mix do not show much effect instantaneously, my general skin condition did improve slightly and remained that way.

I LOVE this! Not only did I get fairer, overall complexion and skin condition improved significantly! But once again, it's too costly to consume this longterm.

Anh Chocola said...

I would love to use:

Dolly Wink lashes

Body Pearl Powder

Anna Sui Eye Color Accent

I fell in love with the Dolly Wink lashes when I was in Japan, but somehow missed out on buying them and I'm regretting it to the deepest. As for the body pearl powder - I'm an addict to shimmery skin and I love puffs like these. And the Eye Color Accent is just a simply must-have!

Sarahj said...

3 Japanese products I love and am using are:

1)Kose Esprique Precious Liquid Eyecolor in GD002
really nice and pretty shimmery liquid gold eye color, and stays all day

2)Fiberwig Mascara
Never ever smudges! And makes lashes long

3 products I use:
1. cheap but cute. Mine has a nude color and a champagne color both make greta highlighting colors.

Kathi and Japan Beauty, thanks for the giveaway!

Buttons and Lace said...

I've never ordered from this site, but I think that I might just try out:
Really like its proposed benefits- especial the oil control.
I really like the sound of both this product and the underarm brightener that you can also purchase. As bad as it sounds, I do have habitually bad underarms, so something thats going to help make them pretty would be great!
This one I could buy any number of places, but if I were to buy the other two, I would definitely buy this one. Lots of people say that this one is a darker color, which is nice for my tan skin! I love that its supposed to be oil control too. I have to admit though, the thing I like most is that so many beauty blogs say they like it (even if its too dark for their fair skin).

I'd probably order some other things too, but these three for sure.

love love this bb cream, it is light so it is not cakey,feels comfortable on my face even under the sun. instead of tinted moisturizers i wear this.

love this mask, doesnt irritate my face and is refreshing.after i use this my face is soft in the morning

yiling said...

items i have tried:
just got these and absolutely love it! made my skin hydrated and supple.

i switched to water based m/u remover after my beautician told me i shouldn't use cleansing oil as it clogs my pores. And this is my fav! Gone through about 3 bottles.

I use this as heat protector before i curl my hair. It smells sooo nice! Something like berry candy hehe

Unknown said...

3 Japanese items that i am currently using:

Anonymous said...

3 items from the site that I'm using and find effective:

1. Cuore K-Palette Real Lasting Eyeliner 24h WP

***I use this when I want really thin lines, or days when I don't want heavy makeup. I have been using this one for a couple years now, and it lasts so long that I haven't needed to buy a new one yet.

2. Sana Covercom Stick

***I bought this from your blogsale and I love it, so I hope to win this one, cause I'll definitely repurchase. It has a matte finish, which is great for my oily skin. And the yellow undertone is perfect; not too yellow.

3. AHA Esthetic Soap

***I had my brother from in the US send me this :> since I ran out. I like this one because it's comparable to my dermatologist prescribed glycolic acid cleanser. This alpha hydroxy acid is strong enough for my acne-prone skin, and smells like apples!

Mandy said...

I haven't tried too many Japanese products, but I would like to try out

elleimay said...

thanks for the giveway :)

Here are products I'm loving :




Japanese cosmetics are far more efficient than some european brands...

hanidee said...

I haven't tried that many Japanese products, but these are ones I like.

Cure Natural Aqua Gel

Lavshuca Light Mix Eyes

Majolica Majorca lash Expander Frame Plus

I like how the Cure exfoliates without irritating my skin. I love how I can achieve a nice smoky look with the Light Mix Eyes without trying and the MM Lash Expander is my all time HG mascara. Holds a curl, lengthens my lashes and adds a bit of fullness without clumping. (:

Linda Nguyen said...

I never try any Japanese products, and I would love to try these 3 products out:

These are some that I wanna try
As my eyes tend to get dry,need this or the rohto eye moisturizer

From reading your blog,Iunderstood that japan lipstick tend to be on the sheerer side and neutral color w/c is what I like.

Wanna try to see if it's effective

Goodluck to us

Lynn Ho said...

Thanks for the giveaway! Love your blog as usual! :)

3 Japanese products which I have tried:-

1. KISS ME Heroine Make Long & Curl Mascara
One of my hot favorites. I never a fan of using curler on lashes and yet, this mascara makes look as if they were curled. Not only that, it does really help to lengthen them too! Now I can longer lashes with minimum effort.

2. MANDOM Cleansing Express Makeup Cleansing Lotion Sebum Refresh
My favorite makeup remover even till now. Very convenient to use for lazy days. Just use cotton pad to wipe off and the best thing, it does not strip off the moisture on your left! Your face will still remain soft, smooth & moisturized.

3. Kanebo Lunasol Water Cream Foundation 30g
One of the 1st cream foundation that I have bought. Although cream sounded very heavy, but yet this foundation is quite light-weighted and very hydrating on the skin. And of cause, not very rich moisturize that it will leave you oily-headed.

Thanks for your giveaway!

kathyeffingjacobs said...

Oooh, I *just* dyed my hair with Beautylabo (inspired by your posts, actually), but they don't have the color I used, and it also wasn't a bubble dye. I would love to try Beautylabo Whip Hair Color in Maple Chocolate, though.

I only recently started trying Japanese cosmetics (and love what I've got), so there's nothing on Japan Beauty that I'm using now. However, Majolica Jewelling Eyes is also on my wishlist - all the shades, actually, but PK785 is my favorite.

And I really want to try a Lavshuca lippie - I think Dramatical Memory Rouge is the one I'm going to start with, probably in PK-3.

Pinkiland said...

In Spain we do not have these products, so I choose which I like to try some day!

HISAMITSU Hello Kitty Eyedrops ->

Chocoable EpiPack for face ->

Pore clear make-up base ->

Kai said...

I have used the IMJU Fiberwig Mascara before:

It's definitely one of my fave mascara, and it REALLY lengthens and volumizes. Except it uncurls, so then i'd have to curl my lashes again. Not a "natural" looking mascara at all, but rather it gives a doll like or falsies like effect. Great for a night out!

I also would like to try Kanebo Lunasol Modeling Water fdnt:
since i'm really curious how different Japanese liquid fdnt might be, and if they do suit asian skin better.

and the Kiss Me Heroine Make Long & Curl mascara:
because I keep hearing raves about this and how it makes lashes really long and curled. want badly!

Lora said...

1. Kanebo KATE Quick Eyeliner


I love this eyeliner! It glides on and applies really well. When it dries, it doesn't crack either which is great! It has a very sharp tip so it's great for getting into the areas between your lashes.

2. Majolica Majorca Lash Enamel Glamour Volume On


This is my absolute favorite mascara! It holds a curl like no other. My lashes were still looking fabulous even after I accidentally fell into the river a few times while river rafting!

3. TSUYAGLA PERFECT TP-3000 Cordless hair iron


I haven't tried this product but I would super love to try it!!!
