The 3 coins store has recently launched a petit price cosmetics range.
They include items like eyeshadow, mascara, nail polish etc
Each item is 315yen [Approx USD$5]
I know many of you like to see reviews of cheap makeup in Japan so i picked up the following two items to try!
The eyeshadow palette [003 palette]
The packaging is similar to many brands [MUJI comes to mind] and is sturdy. There is a mirror where the applicator is kept [nice touch]
Here is the mascara [comes in black or brown, i picked the brown one]
Typical mascara wand
Its extremely small so if you are looking for something to carry on the go, this isnt too bad.
Next to a MAC lipstick for size comparison
I really like the combination of colors of the eyeshadows and the packaging is really sleek.
The mirror is a really nice touch though the brush is rubbish.
However there is quite a bit of fallout so i recommend you use it with a primer. [like UDPP or TFSI etc]
I would buy again if there were other color combinations released that i like.
The mascara is ordinary and seems to have very little product in it. Definetely wont get that again XD
Here are pics of other items sold
More items sold
For those unfamiliar with the 3Coins store, it is a store where everything is 315yen [USD$5~]
In other news, i am back from my trip to Taipei! [not a long trip, just 5 days]
Sadly for me, i must have caught something on the flight back as i started to get a bad sore throat etc on the way home.
Hopefully it clears up asap!
Hope YOU are doing well!
