My aunt is visiting the kingdom of sushi later this month so I have been making a list, and checking it (more than) twice. Was also trying to attempt Blogmas, blogging every day this December until Christmas but it doesn't seem feasible with Baby showing unrest associated with teething (yes, as soon as 10 weeks! One of his lower front teeth is coming out as a white dot). At this very moment he is napping, mouth open, on my lap, while I'm typing half-handicappedly, on my iPad with the attached Logitech keyboard. Excuse any typo or funny formating, merci beaucoup.
I'll probably also do a part 2 with drugstore products, we'll see!
ADDICTION HOLIDAY ADDICTION TOKYO JAZZ (7200 YEN)
ADDICTION LIPSTICK PURE #SPYPINK #TOKYOMONAMOUR (2800 YEN)
ADDICTION CHEEK STICK #SUSPICIOUS #ROSEBAR #DAMASKROSE (2800 YEN)
I hope the holiday set isn't sold out when my aunt visits JP; the case looks like it can be reused and overall seems good value for money!
When I was in Tokyo last time, I bought an Addiction lipstick in #Baby which is in the S (Sheer) formula. I totally adore that, so I wanted more. Recently the brand has discontinued all C (Colour) lipsticks and released another separate type called Lipstick Pure. So far I have read/learnt minimal about this new formula but I've adventurous enough to give it a go.
Then finally, more Cheek Sticks because recently I've received my first one after girlfriend A came back from Japan - I got #Revenge - and I am addicted.

SUQQU BRIGHT UP LIPSTICK #03 BARAIRO (5400 YEN)
I've recently procured three Suqqu Creamy Glow from UK - that formula is divine but discontinued in JP, Selfridges UK ships internationally though - and I fell in love with it. Creamy Glow is ultra smooth, out of this word moisturising and high coverage in one swipe.
Suqqu JP now sells two formulae of lipsticks, Creamy Glow Moist (which is a balmy sheerer type) and Bright Up (more pigmented but still hydrating). I hope this will show up on my complexion/lip colour!
Some other brands my girl A has helped me gotten recently in Sep were Albion and Cle de Peau (both available in HK but cheaper in JP). Honor also thought about ordering Three and Laduree (neither brands' aesthetics hit me). If you've more department store brands or products suggestion, please comment below so I may incorporate that into my list!
