- I’m a NC 25 (darker than Mona & Diana expected)
- The most common shade in Japan is NC25
- I was also told I’m the “normal Japanese shade” at the Dior/Lancome/RMK/Clinique counters
- The concealer that the MUA used on me was NC 20
- The 239 brush which I want is $42 in Japan (vs $25 in the US)
- The 190 brush that I also want is $59 in Japan (vs $32 in the US)
- Back 2 MAC in Japan : 10 containers, only exchangable for lipglasses
- But trust me, the service at the MAC counter was SUPERB even considering that it is Japan
- Shu Uemura #18 is more expensive in Japan… why? ($63 vs $39 in the US)
I am going to have to stop myself from hauling at MAC in Guam…
CALLING ALL BEAUTY BLOGGERS IN GUAM!!!!
I’m going to be in Guam from May 7-9. Who would be interested in a meetup????
Right now, we are talking about having dinner together on May 7. Let me know!!!!
I’m getting a lot of new traffic, thanks to Wuzzy and KT! Thanks so much!!! But I’m sure my new readers are thinking, “is this really a beauty blog? I only see stuff about food!!”
SOOOO today I’ll finally post another EOTD!!
I don’t usually wear bright e/s, but reading all these beauty blogs has stimulated me out of my rut!!
Wearing blue scared me! No one wears brights to the office!!
Ooooh blurry pic, sorry!!
What I used:
– cream eyeshadow as base (not pictured)
– B all over, blended out with C (but it doesn’t show up…)
– D on the outer corner
– A under browbone
– Kate gel eyeliner in BK-3
I have NEVER worn blue eyeshadow before! I am really unsure of how to use it!!
Is there a look you’ve never done, or a color you’ve never worn before?
Here is the OTHER package that I got in the mail the other day!!
I am so so so so SOOOOO sorry I wasn’t able to post this sooner… I feel terrible…
It’s a package from our favorite Hawaiian girl, Wuzzy!!!!
I saw something I wanted from her Aloha Swap
, and she asked me for some Japanese candies in return
! I am so nervous when someone asks me for Japanese sweets… what if they don’t like them?????
How cool is it that you can call your sale “the Aloha Sale”???If I do one, should it be called, “the Konnichiwa Sale”????? hahahaha
Anyway… I get off track too often!
Here’s the package!
Wuzzy put everything in this cute box! How thoughtful!!!
(and what bad photography!!! hahaha)
LOOK at everything she sent me! WOW!!!!
