Photos inside Japanese Cosmetic Stores 1

A series of photos I took all around Tokyo cosmetic stores, their cute ads and placards along with random and funny products. Extreme gender advertising and just what to expect to see when you’re in one.

    I will end up buying so many cosmetics when I’m in Japan, probably just because of the packaging too!!

    Ohhh so cool~~
    I have to check my local store too…

    For girls outside of Japan, liquid stuff is not allowed for air mails, and air plains too, you need to be clever ^^
    Use bubble wraps, put inside of your suitcase! it will be no problem.
    Once I sent a nail polish to my French friend, they found it out with X-lay and sent it back to me. only one nail polish! :sadcat:
    I had to remove and re-packed it…
    They are now really strict.
    Sometimes my Etsy customer wants to send me a nail polish, or nail glue, but I simply can’t :regret: sad…
