Japanese makeup swap

You may not know but I'm pretty obsessed with Japan.  My husband is learning Japanese, I love all things Kawaii, we love sushi and are desperate to fly out to see the sights :)  So when the opportunity came to do a Japanese makeup swap with the lovely Nicole fro A Beauty Maniac in Tokyo I jumped at the chance!

As you can probably imagine, with the Japanese infrastructure being super efficient it only took about 4 days for the parcel to arrive, amazing!  So, here's what she sent to me :)


My only request from Nicole was for the Canmake blusher in 01 (powder blush) which is in the picture: )  She also sent from Canmake a cream blusher, a lip gloss (looks super pretty on), a cream eye shadow.  She also included an eye shadow palette from Kate in my favourite colour, purple! And from Majollica Majorca there's a jewel liner (glittery) :)

**********


This is a Tenugui, you can use it for drying hands/dishes, as a face cloth or as a handkerchief or for wrapping things up, Nicole tells me it's a traditional type of Japanese cloth :)

**********


A couple of lovely face masks, can't wait to try the Strawberry one :D

**********


Some other treatments and shampoo :)

These super cute goodies! On the left is a masque for your lips! (in the picture on the back, it says you can put them on your nipples too, lol) :)  The middle doughnuts are face masks, they're in a gel liquid and you put one on each cheek, and then we have the Beauty Book - this opens up to be a super pretty pop-up book with a mirror, they're shine control sheets that smell of chocolate :)

**********


Here's the book open :)

Nicole also kindly included some Japanese sweets call Hi Chew, these were seriously yummy, between the hubby and I we demolished these!

Thank you so much to Nicole for sending these too me so quickly, I love them all and can't wait to try them all out :)

I am obsessed with Japanese things too, I follow a few Japanese blogs (even one that wasn't written in English but had great pictures) kawaii, sushi and anything Hello Kitty/Sanrio, I love it all. This make-up looks great, enjoy trying out your new things. I will check out Nicole's blog too.

  15. I LOVE Hi Chew! They sell them at Walmart near me, and I pick them up from time to time. The Japanese have the best eye products in my opinions. The best lash curlers and mascaras and eyeliners!
