Osaka Trip Photos Part 1

I was recently in Osaka for just a day and had some free time to check out the shops in Shinsaibashi.

My first stop was Daimaru which has a very large beauty department. Virtually all the counters had their holiday collections and coffrets on display.

I picked up the Addiction and Suqqu holiday palettes for Mag and myself.

See the cloth-covered pile at the Jill Stuart counter? Those were the Secret Tease makeup coffrets! Kose appears to have produced quite a substantial quantity this year as most counters still had stock well into the afternoon, unlike in previous years when they would sell out in a flash. This year, customers were even allowed to buy two sets each.

The Jill by Jill Stuart store in Daimaru.

Cecil McBee.

I didn't buy any clothes since all the shops were displaying winter wear.

Heard from a friend that Samantha Thavasa will be opening its inaugural store in Singapore in Ion Orchard soon.

The Hello Kitty x Liberty collaboration bags.

A jewellery shop, 4°C, which had a cute collection of snow white teddy bears.

I was briefly tempted but decided that it was just too expensive!

Part 2 coming right up!

Looking forward to your review on the Addiction & Suqqu stuff! :)

Can you do a comparison of addiction and nars? I so love addiction. More than jill stuart. Wish Kose Singapore can bring in Addiction. But i guess it's just not possible. We are always behind HK and Taiwan etc when it comes to introducing new brands in Singapore.

the bear is really cute!! How much is it retail for the small one?

Haru said...

I'm afraid I don't know the price for the smallest bear. The mid-sized one is 3150yen.

hi iris,
as i'm purchasing the suqqu holiday collection without the chance to swatch, could you pls let me know which item caught your eye? the pink-grey or blue-grey palette? how about the nuance face color? was it too shimmery? perhaps more glittery than guerlain? looking forward to your review cos i trust your taste alot! thanks so much

Ah... the bear is really cute. The winter wear looks so-so though, I think H&M and Zara has better collections!
