I love reading empties blog posts: I really like seeing what products people manage to finish and whether they can’t live without them or if they never want to see it ever again.

So the title says ‘monthly empties’ but I have an enormous bag in my bedroom FULL of empties so it’s been going on for longer than a month. But nevermind. Let’s go!

It’s finally here! All of the goodies I got in Japan. I’ve had to break it down into three posts, as you can see I got quite a lot of stuff! This first post will cover all the make up as that makes up the bulk of the haul. There are a lot of photos so are you sitting comfortably? Do you have a drink to hand, some biscuits perhaps? Then let us begin!

Japanese Beauty Haul Make Up

I have followed the work of Nagi at DISCO nails for a few years and have always been in awe. She creates tiny works of art that are so detailed and perfect that I just stare at them in amazement.

I never ever thought I’d be lucky enough to get my nails done by her, firstly because she’s based in Japan and secondly because I assumed she’d be booked up for months in advance! At the beginning of February I achieved a dream and went to Japan for 2 weeks and while I was there I took a chance and got in touch with DISCO nails to see if they had an opening for a manicure. And lucky for me, she did – cue lots of screaming and clapping!

Let’s get right to it, here are the beautiful nails I had done:

The Japan Beauty and Skincare Haul

The Japan Beauty and Skincare Haul

My long-suffering fiancé went to Japan recently and obviously I could not pass up the chance to give him a huge list of things I wanted him to get me! He did an amazing job and got most of the things on the list (and some extras). I’m going to be doing reviews of the individual items once I’ve had chance to try them all out but here is a list of everything he got.

  1. Dolly Wink liquid eyeliner
  2. K-Palette eyebrow pen (I actually asked for eyeliner but I am SO PLEASED he got this wrong as I am IN LOVE with this eyebrow pen!)
  3. Fiberwig LX mascara by DJV Beautenizer
  4. Visee lash upswing long mascara
  5. Heroine Make mascara long & curl
  6. Shiseido Perfect Whip Foam Cleanser
  7. Shiseido Anessa Perfect UV spf50
  8. DHC cleansing oil
  9. Hada Labo Goku-jyun Light Lotion
  10. Kanebo kracie moisturising extra rich face mask
  11. Dariya Black soy milk face mask
  12. Mandom beauty barrier repair hyaluronic acid face mask
  13. Kose cosmeport clear turn white Q10 face mask box
  14. Kanebo kracie lotion face mask box
  15. Kose cosmeport clear turn hyaluronic essence face mask box
  16. Hello Kitty socks (yes)
  17. Harry Potter wand chopsticks (YES)
  18. KitKat green tea flavour (OH MY GOD)

He did so well! Especially considering I gave him a list and he speaks no Japanese! I am desperate to go to Japan and have a feeling I would go even more crazy on beauty items. (EDIT: I went to Japan in Feb 2015 and you can see my hauls here Part 1 and here Part 2)

Everything I’ve tried so far has been wonderful. I’m a bit scared to use some of it because I don’t want it to run out! (please tell me I’m not the only one who does this?)

Do you have any recommendations? I want to have a list prepared for my Japan trip!
