A Cosmetic Haul: Anming & Tsubasa


If you guys had idea, I've always had a fascination with everything Japanese. May it be food, make up, culture, places, fashion, music and etc. I really dream 1 day I'd be able to live and work there, since that was always the plan I had for myself. Though you might think it was quite random I mentioned that, but it actually isn't because this haul I'm doing was 100% inspired by Japanese fashion and icons!

Anming / Tsubasa

 Anyways, this is my first time writing an entry like this since its gonna purely about cosmetics and who my current pegs/inspiration. Let's start with the pegs, I don't wanna dig into this too much since it isn't what this entry is really about. I've been going crazy over Tsubasa Masuwaka and Anming! If you guys have no idea who they are, try google-ing and get fascinated. Its totes obvi that Tsubasa is a gyaru and I guess Anming could be counted as the male counter part aka gyaruo. I've been researching immensely about their make up since I've always loved the whole Doll face look. I decided to browse a ton of pictures and make up tutorials, then BAM I got obsessed. 

Let the hauling begin...

From L to R: Loveme Falsies, Sliver Liner both from Suesh, Etude House Eyelash Curler, Dolly Wink Eyelash Case, Bambi Princess Mimi Contacts, Nichido Eyelash glue

Lets start off with this set Falsies I purchased from Suesh. Now I was contemplating whether I should actually purchase this since, I wanted to get myself some Dolly Wink bottom lashes. Though I told myself that this set of lashes would come out wayyy cheaper since it already had both upper and bottom lashes. Random fact, I only purchased it because of the bottom lashes. Since it gives that doll look just like Anming and Tsubasa!

This set contains 5 upper and 5 bottom lashes. Perfect for mixing and matching!

What I love about Suesh is how helpful one of the ladies were. I was telling her how I was dying to own a set of Dolly Wink lashes, and she told me that this set is a perfect dupe for it. Since it also uses 100% human hair. Super satisfied with this since it didn't cost an arm and foot for a set of lashes. Though I really am investing on stuff from Dolly Wink. 

Sliver Liner from Suesh! I needed the perfect liner for those beautiful Gyaru/Gyaruo eyes! PLUS I think its the perfect dupe to the CULT CLASSIC Dolly Wink Liquid Eyeliner. If you have not heard about that well, the liquid eyeliner from Dolly Wink is what Gyaru's usually use to give themselves those doll like eyes aka droopy eyes, wing tips etc. Now I wouldn't say the Sliver Liner is exactly the same, but its the perfect alternative since the lines you can make with these are quite precise! Plus for its price I did not think twice! How I wish Dolly Wink was more affordable. *sigh

Eyelash Curler from Etude House, no need for explaining on this! Though I do recommend this since its a total steal and classic from our favorite Etude House! PLUS IT'S IN PASTEL PINK! 

Dolly Wink Eyelash Case, now I felt really sad at first that I wasn't able to purchase anything from Tsubasa Masuwaka's cosmetic line Dolly Wink and Candy Doll. I just needed to get my hands in something from her line, so BAM I needed the perfect case for the set of falsies I bought! Isn't it CUTE?! Its very Tsubasa! Plus its perfect if you're on the go!

Bambi Princess Mimi Contacts, ok fine, I didn't really feel bad since I did get something from Tsubasa's line of designs! I FINALLY GOT MY HAND ON A PAIR OF BAMBI PRINCESS MIMI contacts in Chocolate Brown! Yes, these are designed by Tsubasa Masuwaka herself. Its under Geo if I'm not mistaken. Its the same one Tsubasa and Anming are wearing on the photo at the very of this entry. I can definitely tell you that this is the MAIN weapon in accomplishing the Gyaru/Gyaruo look. You want doll eyes? Then put these contacts on then POOF you've got doll eyes, darling! REVIEW ON THIS SOON.

Nichido Eyelash Adhesive, CAN SOMEONE PLEASE EXPLAIN WHY EYELASH FIX IS SO DAMN EXPENSIVE??? I swear I've been going through cosmetic stores non-stop to find cheap alternatives to eyelash glue and this was the only one that was in my budget. PLUS, what I hate about this little guy how small the bottle is for its price, but the saleslady said it's for 10 uses. We shall see then... Since I was not planning to spend 500php on glue. If you guys know any other eyelash glue/adhesive that doesn't cost like its a pair of denim shorts, please let me know down in the comments or tweet me!

Sorry for the mouthful, but definitely expect my hauls to always be like this since I really wanna explain what made me make the purchase especially when it comes to cosmetics! I hope this kinda helps you guys if you have any plans on pursuing the whole dolly, gyaru or gyaruo look! If you guys do, definitely show it to me! I'd be delighted to see it! Plus, if you guys purchase any of the items I purchased too, let me know how it works for you! Now I haven't tried anything from here except the contacts, hopefully I can let you guys know how it works out for me! Who knows, I might do an Anming Make Up Tutorial soon! ;)
