Words filled in~
Girlfriend A visited Japan with a long purchase order from moi. Here's what she bought & brought back for me.
Mentholatum Lip Fondue #Marmalade Orange 4.2 g
There are three colourless types in HK market, but I wanted to try a coloured one. It is a very sticky thick jelly mask feeling lip product. Great in improving lip condition and looks high-shine glossy too, but everything will adhere to it - beware hair~
Integrate Gracy Lipstick #31桜色 900円 4 g
Integrate Gracy Lipstick #RS337 900円 4 g
Integrate Gracy Lipstick #RS322 900円 4 g
Integrate Gracy Powder Foundation White Pact N 1400円 11 g
Integrate Gracy is one of Shiseido's drugstore lines, and is probably my favourite. Majolica Majorca (present in HK) and Integrate (not in HK, yes in TW) just don't cut it for me. Some arrogantly say this is the drugstore Cle de Peau, which I'm afraid I cannot agree, but Integrate Gracy is still very good value for the price you pay.

obviously in reality they aren't so blue/cool. I just refuse to retake or edit the photo properly...
Addiction Cheek Stick #05 Revenge 2800 円 3.8 g
Addiction Perfect Concealer Compact Palette 4500 円 5 g
Addiction Blush #Autumn Afternoon 2800円 3.9 g
Addiction is now my top pick out of the numerous Japanese brands we cannot get in Hong Kong. Suqqu is good too, but they can sometimes be a little grown-up/boring. Chicca & Elegance I have yet to try but I have a feeling they are still a little on the conservative side. Addiction's aesthetic really hits me and I'm converted. First time trying their Cheek Stick and I'm now a fan - it is pigmented, smooth and blendable, works on both lips and cheeks. The Concealer Palette has a large pan of my skin tone, a smaller pan of light and another small pan of dark which is super convenient. It has been living in my to-go make up bag since the pictures above are taken, and I am confident it won't be coming out any time soon. #AutumnAfternoon is my third Addiction Blush (the other two being #GoodGirl and #Romantic) and it is a beautiful clean muted orange. Autumn is my season (reason I ordered this shade blindly) and it positively impressed me.
Albion Moisture Chiffon #030 + Case (4000円 + 1000円) 10 g
Albion recently landed in Hong Kong, but they price is marked up significantly on our shore. After Honor (she wears #010) and I went to our counter to get colour-matched, we asked for this from Japan. Bargain-hunters?
Clé de Peau Beauté Luminizing Face Enhancer #14 レオスールデクラ 8000円 10 g
Clé de Peau Beauté Holder (for Extra Rich Lipstick) ホルダー（ルージュアレーブル）2000円
Clé de Peau Beauté Case with Brush (for Cheek Duo) ケースⅡ（ブラシ付）3000円
Clé de Peau Beauté Powder Foundation Sponge 500円
Clé de Peau Beauté Brightening Powder Foundation Sponge 500円
Purely because CPB is cheaper over in JP.
Finally splurged on one of these stunning highlighters!
