I wrote in my 2018 goal post that I wanted to return to my fashion/beauty roots… but I had no idea it would come so quickly. Last week, I completed an article for Live Japan reviewing Daiso’s 100 yen cosmetics and skincare. Later that day, my LB Cosmetics eyeliner arrived. Then two days later, I got another shipment of sponsored makeup Now comes another beauty related post (I know, I know – where’s the Japan stuff and baby spam?)
This post is written in exchange for a free full-sized sample of Brown Black Power of Eyeliner Liquid from Japanese brand LB Cosmetics.
It’s (already? only?) February and I’m ticking off items on my 2018 goal list. I mentioned that I wanted to return to my fashion roots, and here I am with a post about buying makeup in Japan. Excuse me as I unleash my inner Kanye West and proceed to tell you l that that I know all about Japanese makeup since I was a gyaru after all.
It’s a long running gag in the expat community that Japanese will be quick to tell you that Japan is a country of four seasons. But I’ve yet to run into a Japanese person who can tell me why this country is so darn humid in the summer — and dry as a bone in the winter.
A semi-follow up to my Japanese food label guide on Best Living Japan, this article is about helping pregnant women and nursing moms stay hydrated while addressing common issues like weight gain, nausea, constipation, and other concerns.
