The Most Popular Beauty Products In Japan + HUGE Giveaway!

I'm super excited about this month's big giveaway!  I had planned to do this giveaway during the month of September but there was an issue with one of my packages going missing -- even though the "delivery confirmation" stated that it had been delivered.  I'm guessing someone stole the package off my doorstep?  But the sponsor, Artie Style, generously resent the items.  Thank you so much!!!  

I really had to rack my brain to think of something that would top a Hello Kitty giveaway!  I'm sure every one's heard of Pop Sister magazine, which is one of the most popular fashion and beauty magazines in Japan with an emphasis on "gyaru style".  For their September issue they had a wonderful list of the best/most popular/most repurchased beauty items amongst Japanese girls.

So for this giveaway, I chose an item from each category and put together a "Big Best of Japan" beauty giveaway!  I tried to pick the first ranked item from each category but in some cases I felt the second or third places were more coveted items so I went with those.  The only categories I didn't include were the electric skincare device due to size/weight issues and the foundation because it's impossible to purchase a foundation that is a universal shade.

Due to the difficulty of obtaining many of these products, I enlisted the help of two generous sponsors -- Artie Style, and Shoppingholics.

Artie Style is a U.S. based online cosmetics store that offers tons of popular Japanese skin care products and make-up.  They even have an awesome candy selection -- and the customer service is absolutely fantastic!  Artie Style offers a $2.99 flat rate shipping or free shipping on orders over $50 within the US.  You can check out my previous review and giveaway sponsored by Artie here.

Shoppingholics is an adorable circle lens store based in Malaysia.  Not only do they offer one of the best selections of circle lenses, they also carry the most popular Asian cosmetics brands.  And did I mention they provide the cutest packaging ever!  You can check out my previous lens review, the cute packaging, and more store info here.

So here are Pop Sister's top ranked beauty products in Japan.  You can click on the links for more info about each item or to find where they are available for purchase.  And below each category I've included which prize I've chosen!
