[TRAVEL] A WEEK IN TOKYO : DAY 1 - SHIBUYA & SHINJUKU 東京旅行:渋谷&新宿

a week in Tokyo travel experience
Hello ladies ! I almost forgot to post about this special travel experience . Why I call it special? So , maybe some of you already know, I have visited Japan back in 2015 with the help of tour company,and last year i came back to this amazing land of rising sun country BY MYSELF (with my sisters too) what I actually mean is, without joining tour and travel companion. We buy the ticket, book the hotel, plan the schedule and all by the help of internet and tips from some relatives.

Actually I can't believe that i can make it, I always wanted to explore the country especially Tokyo alone, as it on my 2016 wish list too and Thank God we made it happen last summer!
fly to tokyo
So the Tokyo bound start from May 26th till June 2nd.We arrived at Haneda from a long haul flight at 9 pm , and with the help of a friend, we made it to our hotel that located in Aomono Yokocho (the hotel has a room with 3 beds which is perfect for us). After checked in and unpacked  we call it a day because it is not possible stroll at  midnight.Jumping on the second day, where we wander around  Shibuya then  Shinjuku..
JR SHIBUYA STATION HACHIKO EXIT
Always take  JR Hachiko exit, the only familiar exit that takes to Shibuya crossing and more

Then.. for lunch , I hate a set of lunch ; Oyakodon and miso soup for only around 600 yen plus free refill ocha drink.Forgot the restaurant name tho ,but it's underground beside Superwan Petshop.

Continuing to Shinjuku area, We who already loaded with bunch of shopping bags felt tired already but yet we still continue so that our days wont be a waste lol. Took the Lumine 2 Exit and head to the street,

shinjuku shopping experience

going to shinjuku tokyo japan
It was my first time explore Shinjuku area,and unlike Shibuya, the area is must larger where each shop is located kind of far to one and another, you might got a bit confused like me and in the end just taking a casual stroll there , follow where the crowd heading.My tips is, always bring a MAP especially certain map area (Shinjuku Map), or at least download one before you know what certain shop you want to pay a visit in Shinjuku.In the end of the day, I just end my night at H&M 😂 

If you curious which area i would prefer, Still ,it's Shibuya for me to shopping and Shinjuku for eating and killing times.I will talk more about part 2 on the upcoming post, so Stay tune!

JANUARY 2017 BEAUTY FAVORITES

january beauty make up favorites 2017
Hi ladies, how's your January ? This year gotta be a busy year for me as there are so much thing that I want to achieve and improve such as learning to be more wise in time management. Concerning on this matter, I hope that I still can be active in this blog, by writing a monthly favorites ,at least. Well, without further do, here's my January 2017, beauty favorites along with some mini review, Enjoy !
shiseido integrate mineral powder foundation compact review
💙 Shiseido Integrate Mineral Powder Foundation , shade 00 💙
The best compact foundation I've ever tried so far, no breakout and whatsover .Only light tap onto skin, it can cover blemishes and dark circle evenly in medium coverage.The only thing that you should notice is , don't use too much primer // BB cream before, it can cause little bit cakey especially on nose area.Other than that, it's a good pick especially for quick touch up
bourjois happy nude year review
💙 Bourjois Rouge Editon Velvet Matte - 09 Happy Nude Year 💙
get this : Sociolla 
The color is so pretty , a mix of coral and pink, like it just adds saturation of my bare lip color, i can wear it daily without looking too much.Wear it after lip balm otherwise it might be drying your lips after some time.I plan to buy another color and more of Bourjois Velvet Matte and maybe it's Honey Mood.The bottle looks  exquisite too, unlike the ordinary lip cream / liquid lipstick, don't you agree?
kose visee color polish lipstick japan review
💙 Kose Visee Color Polish Lipstick in OR 221 💙
A real semi - matte pigmented color, when applied the color just turn out out exactly like in the stick, It also doesn't leave my lips dry even without lip balm. 
dhc single color eyeshadow purple japan
💙 DHC Single Color Eyeshadow A05 Lilac Purple 💙
It's kinda hard to find lilac color eye shadow that fit my preference, Luckily I found this tiny size of DHC single color eye shadow . For such only around 600 yen, it's a value for money. It's compact , travel friendly with secured, kawaii packaging. Usually Japanese eyeshadow is very shimmery while this one is quite moderate. It's a pick for you who want to buy pastel colored eyeshadow in single piece.
the faceshop color my brow mascara review
💙 The FaceShop Lovely Me Ex Color My Eye Brow - 02 Light Brown 💙 
It's a decent product for anyone who are new with browcara, easy to use and it lighten my natural black eyebrow, the color consistency is pretty even. It's is also very easy to get in almost all The Faceshop counter.
silkygirl brow pencil review
💙 Silky Girl Natural Brow Pencil - 02 Dark Brown 💙
Bought it at local drugstore while it was on sale like 50% off, cheap becomes super cheap! I like how the pencil smoothly glides on my skin and not waxy ,leaving a nice brown color with a little hint of red. I usually pair it with The Faceshop Color My Eye Brow to suit with my recent hair color

K - PALETTE トップ LUCKY BAG
 Made in Japan 
 Website : K - Palette
✿ Price :  ¥ 1800
 ---Where to Buy---
 
In Store : Don Quijote
 Consist of :
1 day magic 3D Palette
1 day tattoo real lasting eyeliner
1 day Tattoo Real Lasting Mascara + Easy Cleansing Oil Set
k palette 1 day magic 3d palette
✿ K - Palette 1 Day Magic 3D Palette
k
Packed in simple ,mirrored compact design.It comes with 2 shades of blushes ; peach and pink, a highlighter and a shading powder for contour. Plus, a dual mini brushes.
k
The brush how yet eventually, it's a little too small to apply the shading powder.Yet, the size is perfect to apply both blushes and highlighter. For pigmentation, it's quite shimmery and powdery so that you need to apply more layers or primer before to capture the actual color.
k
✿ K - Palette 1 Day Tattoo 24H Real Lasting Eyeliner
k palette 24 h real lasting eyeliner
A waterproof based pen eyeliner, it claims to be last up to 24 hrs and in my case for daily usage, it works! To be able fully remove it need double cleanse.
k  I almost think about repurchase this eyeliner since it works pretty okay for me day yet weeks after, the applicator bristles is frayed.I have no idea how to repair since I'm afraid it will be contaminated. Any idea how to fix 😐 ?
k
✿ K - Palette 1 Day 24H Super Black Real Lasting Mascara
✿ K - Palette Easy Cleansing Oil
k
A film type mascara that is resistant to any water ,sebum and also sweat
k
In a glance it bit look alike with Heroine Make Super WP, except it's has a straight wand
k
The mascara works like what it claimed, lengthen my lashes, hold the curl and easy to removes.The only thing that bother me is it has a strong chemical scent.The Easy Cleansing oil works just fine.It gently removes the mascara easily and doesn't sting on my eyes.With such small size, I bet it will be run out already in less than 10 times usage.

Conclusion: For such price, this fukubukuro is total money saving.With just less than 2000 yen, I can treat myself with 4 different make - over items.The only downside is, I don't think I can find this bag elsewhere at certain times except Don Quijote , so it's kinda hard for you to buy via online.Maybe next year, K-Pallete will release another fukubukuro bag and let's see what they'll be offerring :)

See you on 2017 , Happy New Year 💫

[REVIEW] KANEBO LUNASOL INTELLECTUAL LIQUID EYELINER

kanebo lunasol intellectual liquid eyeliner review
I've always want to own a good Japanese high end cosmetic brand especially from Kanebo.This year when I went to Tokyo, I finally managed to treat myself with a Lunasol Intellectual Liquid Eyeliner series.The reason why I choose pen type liner rather than the other type of eyeliner is pure because of efficiency factor .
review lunasol intellectual liquid eyeliner 01 black
 KANEBO LUNASOL INTELLECTUAL LIQUID EYELINER
インテレクチュアルリクイドアイライナー
no 01 Brownish Black
 made in Japan
Price :  ¥ 3000 
( holder only ¥ 1800 )
( cartridge only ¥ 1200 )
Website : Lunasol Jp
Where to buy :
 Kanebo Official Store
Little did I know,this eyeliner comes with two items that you can buy separately ; holder and cartridge ,a set to make it works.This 'refill' concept is somewhat new to me and I found it's just a smart way of improving selling points and also fresh idea for us as user.

Kanebo Intellectual Liquid Eyeliner works merely like a pen. All you need to do is put the cartridge in, and slowly push the bottom tip .The brush that is originally white will turn to black, that's when you know it's ready to use.

When applied, I love how the brush that is really pointy yet can smoothly glides on my eye crease, it makes delicate fine line too.The color is not as brown as expected, just a fine black with matte result.It's definitely easy to use but to make the color really pop out, you need to cover about 3 or more layers.That's the fun, you can adjust your own preferred pigmentation. About staying power, it can stay for half day without touch up On top of that, it is also easy to removes with warm water or remover in one swipe.
For me, I personally will repurchase just because I love the elegant and sleek design. And when it run out already, i just need to buy the cartridge refill, simply cheaper and thrifty for long time use. Overall, for such high end brand this product quality is worth the price. If you are into natural looking make up ,you may give it a try. Just remember to buy via real store instead of online. Some shops might sell it too high or even doubled rather than the actual price in Japanese yen.

RATE  4 / 5
