Buying Japanese & Korean Cosmetics



The true definition of Kawaii: Japanese & Korean makeup!

I've recently discovered this whole new realm in the beauty world.
There is such a variety of colorful,decadent cosmetics treats in Asia.
The drugstore quality of these asian brands,is amazingly similar to our department store quality.
The best part? Its a whole lot cheaper.
It is definitely harder to obtain these items if you live in the U.S.,but there are ways to get your hands on these delightful products.
There are certain websites you can purchase from.
The only downside to online retailers is that the markup is very high,as well as shipping charges.
Its so cute..who can resist no matter the hefty price tag?!

Warning :This can be a new found addiction hazardous to your wallet!

...Lets get started on some brands/sub-brands...

Canmake
Kiss me
Kiss
Majolica Majorca
Kanebo
Bison/BabyPink
Sana
JuJu Cosmetics
Lavshuca
Sofina
Shiseido
Bihada
DHC
Koji/Spring heart
Tiffa
Cezanne/Sweets sweets

Korean:
Missha
Etude House

Here are some places you can buy some asian cosmetic brands:

adambeauty
webichi
Jpmon
makeupcelebrity
ohayousa
sasa
stuff-japan
bobodave

You may need to use a translation tool provided by firefox/google,and also XE money converter so you can get an idea of the price if the site isnt so US friendly.

You can also look around,on forums and such you may find someone willing to custom purchase for you.

The easiest option I suppose is Ebay,but expect to pay far more than retail.

There are so many more to be added to the list!

If you know of any others,please let me know!

Enjoy your hunt for the hottest products on the planet!

Stay tuned for more posts on my *new love*, Asian makeup!

I really like the nude color lipgloss and angled eyeliner in the picture. Would you be so kind as to tell me which brand makes it and what it's called/color? Thanks so much!
