Appeasing Your Hunger for Japanese Cosmetics Part 1: An Introduction

‘ello girlies (and guys)!

I had quite a few questions in regards to “OH MY GOD WHERE CAN I GET JAPANESE COSMETICS!!!!!!!?”

The Muse has some gorgeous friends in her life that do her shopping for her! Without these lovely people in her life she’d be quite remiss of Japanese goodies in her train case! My god the HORROR! *insert scared, terrified looking face here*

Sometimes busy schedules also means that they are unable to get me my little bits and ship them over 🙁 (I say “little bits” so it makes me appear less obsessed than I actually I am teehee!)

When these horrible things occur the Muse must search, search, search for alternative ways of locating her Japanese crack…errr…I mean Japanese cosmetics!

Our very own, gorgeous Fleck has some great hints, tips, and general tricks for obtaining what she wants! She’s passed some great ideas off to the Muse about where to locate good cosmetics to satisfy her lemmings! Do visit her reviews on MUA! They are my bible when purchasing!

The Muse also has her own toolbox of locating interesting little bits and pieces to appease the insatiable hunger for Japanese cosmetics!

Finding decently priced Japanese cosmetics is a difficult job my friends but with a little hard work you can find somewhat good priced deals here and there 😉

This will entry will be in several parts which will also include a video blog to go along with it! I hope it helps satisfy your lemmings for great cosmetics!


About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse. If you’re that person feel free to reach out and leave a comment or follow me on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Bloglovin‘.
