Avoidable Acquisitions | Sasa, Daiso & Muji



Avoidable, perhaps, but therapeutic also, perhaps.



Sasa
  • Naris Up Wrinkle Plus Alpha Super Lip Repair $39 / 10 g
  • Isehan For My Dear Mommy Lip Cream $38 / 3.5 g
  • Isehan For My Dear Mommy Lip Cream #Strawberry $38 / 3.5 g
  • Kiss Me Moist Lip Hyaluronic Acid Collagen $26 / 4.5 g
  • Kiss Me Moist Lip BB Hyaluroinc Acid Collagen $26 / 4.5 g
  • ParaDo Sakura Veil Lip N $29
I'm still on the lip balm craze, that's why.  From the above, the Naris Up in a pot is surprisingly hard in the pot, but soft on the lips - I'm liking it.  Kiss Me is enabled by DAF Katebut the version she featured is not found in Sasa, so I opted for the two I saw, both tinted.  The pink one leaves my lips very healthily and attractively rosy, and the texture is a slightly hard, wax-like balm stick.  I haven't tried the Mommy ones, or the Kiss Me nude colour one.  ParaDo is a back-up purchase, as I am very much enjoying the one I previously bought.



  • Omi Mentrum Shea Lipstick #Rose $35 / 4.7 g
  • Kiss Me Medicated Lip Cream $26 / 2.5 g
  • Sinful Colors #321 Forget Now $19.9 / 15 ml
  • Sinful Colors #978 Amethyst $19.9 / 15 ml
  • Sinful Colors #376 Glass Pink $19.9 / 15 ml
  • Visee Lip & Cheek Cream #PK4 $85 / 5.5 g
The Omi lip balm has another Sakura scent, but it didn't appeal to me.  Read about the Kiss Me Medicated on a Taiwan blog and being very positively impressed by the Moist Lip above, I decided to get this as well, although per gram it is nearly double the price!

Forget Now - Amethyst - Glass Pink
The formula of Forget Now and Glass Pink reminds me of Cinderella, while Amethyst reminds me of Be Happy.  I'll report back if they stun me, in the good way or the opposite.


Out of the 6 new Lip & Cheek Creams, only 4 are sold in Hong Kong - although they display all 6 testers...  I am not an everyday-wearer of cream blush, but I am very into lip products at the moment.  To play safe, I purchased the colour I feel most wearable and flattering on me, i.e. the rosier, warmer PK4 pink.  After playing with it for a few days, now I can say I really enjoy it both on my cheeks (dot on with finger, blend with palm) and lips (pat over lip balm).  I am ready to go out and get the remaining 3 shades!

Sasa
  • Visee Creamy Lipstick #PK802 $125 / 4 g
  • Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick #510 Berry Rich (Crème) $59 / 4.2 g
  • Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick #825 Lovers Coral (Shine) $59 / 3.7 g
  • Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick #016 Paradise Pink (Matte) $59 / 4.2 g
  • Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick #028 Cherry Blossom (Pearl) $59 / 4.2 g
I am not going to defend myself.  I purchased all these just because I'm having a serious lip problem. :S  Perhaps, buying more lip colour will remind me to apply lip treatment more often, or even subconsciously, miraculously improve my chapped lips situation?

Sasa
  • Hello Kitty Nail Polish #Outa Town $48 / 10 ml
  • Cyber Colors Eco Nail Color #40 Chocolate $48 / 10 ml
  • Cyber Colors Eco Nail Color #39 Deep Red $48 / 10 ml
  • Cyber Colors Eco Nail Color #36 Lavender $48 / 10 ml (review)
  • Sinful Colors Nail Colour #1106 Cinderella $19.9 / 15 ml (review)
  • Sinful Colors Nail Colour #982 Be Happy $19.9 / 15 ml (review)
I finally paid for a bottle of the Hello Kitty because I enjoyed the formula of the previous on I got from Glamabox - painted and shown here.  Cyber Colors was a blind test, as they're on a $99 for 3 bottles offer.  Turned out, these are the ones I enjoy the most, currently.  The colours and formulae are very impressive; considering the price also, they're a steal!

Sinful Colors is not new to me, and these two shades shouted to me while I was browsing so I picked them up.  I prefer the colour of Cinderella, but it is quite sheer and hard to dry; Be Happy is a more 'common' colour but the formula is better.

Daiso (Aeon) and Muji
  • Daiso Mini Tweezer with Pouch $12
  • Daiso Scissors & Mascara Comb $12
  • Muji Lip Essence $70 / 10.5 g
  • Daiso Brown Mix False Lashes #2 Natural Style $12
  • Daiso Brown Mix False Lashes #3 Romantic Style $12
  • Daiso Brown Mix False Lashes #4 Dolly Style $12
  • Daiso Brown Mix False Lashes #5 Lovely Dolly Style $12
Frankly, there's no justification for the above.  I have recently kind-of reorganised my tools and found no decent scissors for trimming false lashes - not that I wear that often.  So when I pass by an Aeon, I picked up a bunch of stuff from Daiso.  The Muji lip essence came back with me when I used my gift coupons (from my wedding 10 months ago!) on some storage stuff.
