I know many people have trouble when they choose products at drugstores in Japan.
A Japanese brand, “Heroine make” which is known as “kiss me” in China is getting more popular these days. Today, I’m going to introduce some of my favorite products from “kiss me”.
Affordable and easy to use Heroine cosmetics products that I recommend
My skin is slightly sensitive, so I have to take care about the products which I apply directly to my skin. Therefore I always buy cosmetics from the cosmetics counter that I trust in a department store.
But when it comes to mascara and eyeliner, I think the ingredients are almost the same as all other cosmetics and on top of that, it’s best to choose the one that is sweat and tear resistant.
One day, when I went shopping with my best friend, she recommended “kiss me” to me saying that it’s the best mascara that she has ever used. I was actually looking for another mascara at that time. I decided to buy “long and curl mascara” because it was not so expensive. It cost around 1000yen.
I was surprised when I applied it for the first time.
This mascara gave my lash length and curved my lashes beautifully.
In addition, it didn’t smudge the whole day.
I recommend that you use the eyelash curler from Shiseido tool, as you can get an even nicer curl.
Now I can’t live without it.
The mascara in the upper right picture, launched in 2014, is the one that you can simply remove with hot water. It is resistant to sweat and water like the previous products but it gives a lighter touch than the normal series. The price is 1200yen.
Which do you choose: length or volume?
I know some people have trouble when they choose which type of mascara to use.
Generally, the brushes of length mascara are shaped to fit snuggly over the lashes (see example in the lower left). On the other hand, the brushes and fibers used for volume mascara are thicker. (see example in the lower right). I recommend lengthening mascara if you want to emphasize each one of your lashes. For those who want to highlight the dramatic volume and thickness of your lashes and want to make your eyes look bigger, I recommend the volume mascara.
Heroine make for eyeliner!
The following is about eyeliners. For me, choosing a long lasting eyeliner is most important because I often put in eye drops.
If you don’t put eye drops in like me, I’m sure you will favor eyeliner that is resistant to sweat and water especially in summer. First of all, the eyeliners from “kiss me” are generally safe. They last beautifully all day and the brush is thin and easy to apply your eyeliner.
This year, a new cosmetics product was launched. This is a gel eyeliner, which lasts longer than other eyeliners. You can easily outline the corner of your eyes using gel eyeliner.
My next topic is removing mascara and eyeliner.
How do you remove those long lasting mascaras and eyeliners?
I usually use a mascara remover from “kiss me”, and then wash my face with normal makeup remover. The brush of this mascara remover from “kiss me” is thin, and easily removes mascara from your bottom lashes.
Affordable eyelash growth serum with “Heroine make”!
I also recommend the eyelash growth serum from “kiss me” to people who want to take care of their bottom eyelashes.
You can use it as an eyelash base or treatment for your eyelashes before you go to bed. To be honest, I can’t tell you what exactly has changed with my lashes because I don’t use it every day. However, when I applied it as eyelash base, I found it easy to remove. Continuous care of your eyelashes is the most important thing. I’ll let you know when I find any new information!
I hope you find my article informative and will help you to buy the best make-up products for you.
