Budget Monday : Japanese Drugstore Makeup Haul

 

Hey everyone!

Few weeks back I decided to explore some Japanese drugstore beauty brands and here are a few things I picked up! The brands featured here include Kate (by Kanebo), Kanebo Media, Shiseido Aqualabel, Shiseido Integrate Gracy and Canmake. Shiseido and Kanebo are the big players in the Japanese market and have many sub-brands which are available in drugstores. While the core Shiseido Makeup brand (which is internationally available) is priced high-end like the other parts of the world, the many sub-brands like Aqualabel, Integrate etc. are more affordable.

The major part of my haul is from Kate which has an impressive makeup lineup (and the store was running a 35% discount!).Β Enjoy the pics!

[note color=”#FFE4C4″]What impresses me about Japanese drugstore makeup is the quality and variety of products they have – gel liners, felt tip liners, cream eye shadows, primers/makeup bases apart from the regular foundation, eye shadow, lipstick etc. Mascaras, liners and brow products are very popular here but since I have plenty of those, I didn’t pick any this time around. I am quite excited to try out the eye shadows and base products.

Which product would you pick from my haul? Share your comments below! [/note]

  1. Beautifully clicked…
    Im eyeing those eyeshadows from kate seem to be really btful
    Wish there was some shipment way to get these to india..
    And I wanted to ask u one more thing anjita.. does cherryculture.com ship to india..??

  2. OMG super awesome haul, absolutely loved it, wish we could get some Japanese products here too, I so want that BB cream πŸ™ and the lipsticks looks so classy πŸ˜€

  3. Wow, great haul! I have the same mint shade nail paint by Canmake. πŸ™‚ Can you please do a review on KATE Foundation? For long, I have been wanting to have this one but I am skeptical to buy…

  4. whoa! the products look really nice.. I’m particularly interested in the BB gel cream, even though there’s no way I’ll be able to get it right now..haha.. enjoy this new world of makeup! <3

  5. Wow, Ankita, dont u think the packaging is so different & attaractive. i bought Kanebo Face Primer & powder from Hongkong.. The primer is really good. I also bought lavshuca candy pop single eyeshadows which are extremely well pigmented. I love the eyeshadows.. they r so cute

  6. Hi, the bb cream and foundation with base is the best buy I thought.. In India u can't get such a combo..
    My hubby got me two 'mistine super eye liners in black' this time from Thailand.. In love with them.. No jhanjat nothing.. Just swipe n stunning eyes for all day.. Jet black.. I think u should try it if u get that brand out there

  7. As expected, the eye shadows are mostly shimmery and coz asians love shimmery eye shadows than the matte ones.. I particularly loved the lipsticks and their packaging is almost the same like colorbar ones.

    Looking forward to see more of the eye shadow swatches and the lipstick swatches..also the makeup base looks cool.. review plz πŸ™‚

  8. I so look forward to your reviewing these! There’s a dearth of FOTDs on medium skin using Japanese makeup online. We can use more!

  9. one lovely haul πŸ™‚
    I m loving the eyeshadow palette, n d bb gel looks interesting!!
    Cant wait for the swatches!! πŸ™‚

  10. Awesome haul. I wonder about this BB cream, it kind of looks appealing, also the Shiseido makeup base.. πŸ™‚

  11. I wish I could get my hands on some of the Japanese brands! They are so expensive in Korea! Last year we were planning to go to Busan and then visit Tokyo but it didn’t work out! Of course I am loving the Korean products but your posts make me want to grab a few Japanese products as well! The KATE products look so beautiful. The quintet KATE eyeshadows are the only ones available here I think. Will wait for your review and maybe buy it πŸ˜‰

  12. Oooh that’s one drool-worthy haul! Do let us know the Indian equivalents of these products if there are any πŸ™‚ (also.. LOVING the prices πŸ˜‰ )

  13. I have Kate BB cream but I haven’t used it for a while. I think these Japanese beauty products rock. I also envy their ad models who have really tiny tiny pores in the face.
