Shibuya Adventure Pt. 2

I LOVE has EVERYTHING (except a M.A.C Pro Store, which actually isn't too far away, in Omotesando). I took my unstylish-ass to Zara, which is much like Forever 21, but not as cute. I hadn't bought new jeans in a year and a half, and I ALWAYS wear the same three you can imagine what those three look like...shapeless, thinned out, and generally UGH. I really don't like going to clothing stores, especially in Japan. Maybe 'cause they're always super-crowded and the people who work there are either rude or vapid. I went Tuesday morning, so no one was there yet, which meant I could try on a bunch of stuff. Here's what I walked out with:

New jeans...I love the medium wash, and whisker details.

Striped might not be able to see, but the eyelets going down the middle are cute :)

Striped yellow tee

I also went to the Lush store near the station. I was going to check out their shampoos and conditioners, but I bought a face moisturizer instead. This one is called 'Imperialis'. It's made for combination's the description from their website:

"Imperialis is great for combination skin because it's made with lavender infusion to balance the skin's sebum production. Meaning what exactly? Well, lavender encourages dry skin to produce more natural oils and discourages oily skin from overdoing it. With orange flower water to tone and St John's wort to soothe irritation, Imperialis' collection of butters and natural oils make it not too heavy and not too light, bordering on perfection."

If this stuff works for me, I will definitely buy more products!!! I was eyeing their Eau Roma Water, a rosewater toner, but I had already spent enough money. Maybe on my next adventure.

I also got a M.A.C. Paint Pot in 'Cash Flow' and a NYX lipliner in 'Mauve'. I like how Cash Flow is a subdued, darker gold, not at all yellow-ish. I'm definitely pairing it with my Milani wet/dry shadows ;)

Ohhhh heeeelllppp meeeeee, I need to stop spending!

Muse: I was enchanted by your video on all the Lush skincare products you I had to buy myself at least one, LOL. Does Eau de Roma work for you?

Yummy411: The Japanese names of the products are actually a little different than the western ones...I guess they change them a little to make it easier for Japanese people to pronounce and remember! You should try their skincare stuff, I love that everything is really natural!
