Japan Makeup Products

post #1 of 30
Thread Starter 
Hi there, I was wondering if any of you heard of any japan makeup/skin care products that are good? They're really quite fantastic in the make up area -- and I've got magazines of them teaching one how to Wear fake eyelashes - step by step. It's amazing.

Okay, call me wide eyed surprise -- but yea, I never knew that foundation had to be put in such a way that the fairer shade (highlighter) should be placed at your T-zone and your cheekbones to make your face shaper. Anddd, there's such stuff about contouring. Cool.

So i was just wondering if any of you know of any great japan make up brans? or products? I'm currently using Ethusia's Liquid eyeliner. It's perfect because it's shaped like a pen!

There are many good makeup brands. It depends on how much would you willing to spend though. If you willing to spend more money for makeup you can try the deptstore brand one, such as:

Shu uemura
Shiseido: inouiid,Cledepau, Shiseido S.co, etc
Kose: Cosmedecorte, BEAUTÉ de KOSÉ, etc
Kanebo: Lunasol, Twany, Impress, etc
RMK
Suqqu
Albion
Ayura
Awake
Elegance
IPSA
Sofina:Est, Alblanc etc
And moree (I can't possibly mention them all lol)

As for non deptstore to drugstore brand (widely available):

Shiseido maquillage, Majolica Majorca, Intergrate, etc
Kanebo Testimo, Lavshuca, Revue, Kate, etc
Kose: Luminous, Fasio, Esprique, Vise etc
Ettusais
Sofina: Aube, Raycious, Very very, Fune Fit, etc
Misselegance
Orbis
SKII
And many more

I've tried some of the brands and me like/love them ALL.

I see your location is in Singapore, you can get Japanese magazines in Singapore, right? I've learned sooo many things from all Japanese beauty magazines from skincare to makeup. Their magazines are full with brilliant tutorials, tips and recommendations.

Shiseido, Kose, Sofina, for the brands i know of and want to buy. i don't read japanese, so i don't really read any japanese magazine, except from time to time the gothic bibles.

Re: Japan Makeup Products

I love Shiseido. Great stuff!

Re: Japan Makeup Products

Have to share: I've recently bought two Majolica Majorca and a Lavshuca e/s on www.adambeauty.com They're VERY pigmented and cheap, excellent price/quality balance. Can't wait to buy other MM products.

Re: Japan Makeup Products

Shiseido is a Japanese brand but it isn't really a Japanese brand if the product is made in another country besides Japan. here in the US, all of their skincare line except White Lucent is made in the US.

their White Lucent does wonders for my skin so I might stick to that skincare line.

Yeah, most of Shiseido International lines are made in USA regarding Western/Asian skin type and stuff. But, even though some of the International product are made in US but it still Japanese brand (NOT original Japanese product) though only it made in other country.

I use their loose powder and concealor. Totally amazing!
Cle de Peau is owned by Shiseido. They have pretty good products but they're pricey.

Re: Japan Makeup Products

SUQQU have the best eyelash curlers around. They are WAY better then Shu Uemura, as they actually curl the lash from the root. Suqqu have just launched in the UK, in Selfridges and the curlers are only £12....they are more expensive in Japan.
SUQQU brushes are also absolutely unbelievable...unfortunately they are madly expensive (The blusher brush is £160...$320!!! ). They are however the best (canadian blue squirrel hair, which I hear is 'humanely' obtained....you have to see these to believe the quality.
RMK has a great colour palette....I LOVE their jelly face masks too.
Also, the BEST eyeliner pen I have ever used is by a company called KATE. Its an ultra fine wet pen...and I bring back dozens for friends who beg me for one when I go to Japan....and for approx £5 ($10)....it's a mega bargain.

Re: Japan Makeup Products

1. RMK's loose powder is really good
2. Shu Uemura: I love their eyeshadow and lashes
3. Kanebo Testimo's colors are really nice too
There are also really good Japanese cosmetics you can find at Watson's that are not as expensive and belong to the big brands such as Kanebo, Kose, Shisedo but go under the names like Kate and Majolica Majorca.
Have fun!

Re: Japan Makeup Products

I love Suqqu. Their e/s are the BEST!
Shu's brushes feel like heaven one my face.
And for skincare, I'm mad about Kanebo now.

Re: Japan Makeup Products

I just saw this thread and totally love Japanese products.

My favorites are:

1. CLE DE PEAU BEAUTE concealer, satine cream foundation, cream to powder foundation, eyeshadow quads, blush/highlighter duo, lipstick and loose powder. Probably the MOST EXPENSIVE MAKEUP line in the market. Ridiculously very expensive but if one is serious with makeup, this is a good investment since the products would last you a long time, over 4 months of daily use, based on my personal experience.

2. SHU UEMURA - for eyeshadows, Precise volume mascara (waterproof), lipstick, eyeliner and the BEST MAKEUP BRUSHES. Makeup price is quite similar as the other high-end makeup products but not as expensive as Cle de Peau. But their makeup brushes are the best, especially those kolinsky, kolinsky/sable eyeshadow brushes! Wow!

3. AWAKE by Kose - I am a big fan of their foundation especially their Hydro Manage foundation (used to be their HydroTouch line). I used to be a big fan of Awake but had to abandon it when I discovered Cle de Peau.

4. KANEBO - I tried Kanebo products but didn't work for me.

Re: Japan Makeup Products

I haven't used any Japanese skin care but I do enjoy the makeup. My favourite Japanese brands are Shu Uemura and Kate by Kanebo.

Re: Japan Makeup Products
