Narita Airport finds

So I'm back in Singapore now. I was happily surprised to discover that RMK and Lunasol have opened counters in Terminal 1 South Wing of Narita Airport this morning. As Lunasol was giving away a compact mirror with any purchase of an eyeshadow palette, I finally picked up the Geminate Eyes #4 Sapphire and #5 Ruby for myself :-) There's no better excuse than a GWP plus tax free, right? The Lunasol prices were basically the retail price excluding the usual 5% sales tax but RMK was quite substantially discounted by about 25%. For example, their W Lip & Gloss which retails for 3990yen at the city counters was selling for only 3000yen. There was also a travel exclusive #1 Lip Palette with 10 shades that was 4000yen. They carried almost the full range but did not have the Jelly Eyes. Lunasol also had a trio of nail polishes for the price of two (3000yen) and a travel exclusive lip palette. The lovely SA also gave me a HF White Aroma Basic Charm set that included a Brightener (20ml), Emulsion (20ml) and Conditioner (30ml).

Singapore Airlines flies from T1 South Wing so do take the opportunity to check these out if you're there! The RMK and Lunasol counters are at the cosmetics store on the left hand side after the Customs counter. Shu Uemura also has 2 counters in the South Wing with the products discounted fairly substantially like RMK, more than the 5% sales tax. Maquillage is also available in the duty-free but only without the 5% sales tax. Other brands available are MAC, Bobbi Brown, SKII, Anna Sui, Chanel plus the usual EL, Clinique, Lancome. Anna Sui and Chanel already had the fall collections out. MAC had the Paint Pots, 3D glosses and Flashtronic.

Hey, I am glad to hear you arrives safely in Singapore!
Narita airport is really cool! I remember buying a lot of stuff in that cute little Hello Kitty store they have there (but I have really no idea which terminal we were).. also saw Shiseido Selfit there in a small duty free shop along with MM =D

Aww South Terminal sounds like it has a lot better goods than North Terminal (which I went through when I left Japan). No Shu, Lunasol or RMK there. Glad you got to have one last happy romp before leaving the country :)
