Well guys. Since I am in Japan I have to admit that I truly miss my dear Sephora. I have never been the type of person to spend a crazy amount of money on make up. I much prefer investing in good quality clothes, or one good bronzer, than having a tone of them that I never reach out for (ok, lipsticks do not count here!). But I have to admit that after three months of privation, I feel the need to get something Sephora. A lipstick, a concealer ... something. I now totally understand the frustration of UK beauty gurus.  Here in Japan it is much harder to shop for high end products. You have to go to all of those fancy counters, and to be honest I hate shopping at make up counters. I like bigger shops, where I can search for my own products without being attacked by a for sure lovely, but a bit oppressive sale person. Yes I am the kind of girl who will definetly run away if you try to help me if I don't ask you to do so. Anyway, just because I can't help myself, here are five products I would love to add to my makeup collection right now. And don't forget to comment with the product you're dying to try right now!

1. Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer - Just because the whole world is raving about it and that I almost got it before leaving for Japan but finally went for the NARS Audacious lipstick in Anita (don't regret at all though, it is for sure one of my favourite lipstick ever!). It has became an obsession of mine especially since it is apparently everything I have ever looked for in a concealer. Easy to blend and amazing coverage. What else ?

2. NARS Audacious lipstick in Fanny or Julie - Actually the shade Julie isn't available on the french Sephora website, which means I should try to visit one of the NARS counter in Tokyo to find the shade. Cheer me up guys and maybe I will finally get something from a counter (it is all about fighting your fears right?). I would also love to get the shade Fanny which seems to be a perfect berry color.

3. Clinic Color Pop lipstick in Nude Pop, Melon Pop and Plum Pop - The first thing that attracted me to those lipsticks is the packaging that I think is absolutely adorable. Since I saw them all over Instagram I have secretely dream to own the whole collection, but if I had to pick a few shades I would go for those three.

4. The Too Faced Neutral Matte palette - I am OBSESSED with matte eye shadows recently. Which is kinda strange since I have always been a big fan of shimery looks. Yes you're talking to the girl who hit pan twice on Smog and Half Baked in her Urban Decay Naked palette (and yes, I purchased it twice). Anyway, this palette looks amazing and I would love to create deep and dark smockey with those nice brown shades.

5. SmashBox Photo Finish Primer - Just because my best friend says it is an amazing primer I would love to try it now, especially since I am completely out of the one I was using and that I can't find anything I like in the japanese drugstores.


  1. I love these products! Currently obsessed with the Smashbox primer. so expensive, but so worth it!
