If you're from Melbourne like I am, no doubt you've heard of the fabulous Daiso; a beautiful Japanese thrift store where everything (and I mean EVERYTHING) costs $2.80!
Luckily for me, my boyfriend's cousin lives directly across the road from Daiso! We visited him on the weekend, and so I was able to duck in and have a quick look around! I've heard that some of their makeup products are notoriously brilliant, so I couldn't go past such a bargain!
I was only in the store for a short time, but I managed to come out with six beautiful items! Let's go through what I picked up!
Daiso Brand Eyelashes
I was thrilled to discover that glue was included with this pair. (I didn't even think to check before I left the store!) I'm not really one for fake eyelashes, but if you can go past a whole wall of beautiful fake lashes without picking at least one pair you need, then you're crazy! I could have walked out with hundreds, but I settled on one beautiful pair that I'll save for a special occasion! At $2.80, I'm not complaining!
Daiso Brand Luxury Nail Jewelry 3D Pearl Hearts
How cute are these! White and pink pearl hearts with sealed backs, so they just stick on your nails (or anywhere else, I guess) automatically without glue! I had a hard time picking what nail art stickers I wanted, as there were so many gorgeous things to choose from. I thought I would go simple and so I picked this.
Daiso Brand Nail Jewelry Parts - Black
I picked up the first cute packet thinking I'd keep it simple. I saw these and I knew I couldn't stay simple! These have a few different types of cute thinga-ma-bobs, but the cutest are the black roses! They had a few different colours, but I figured I'd stick with black! Can't wait to try these out. Sadly you need glue, and I didn't think to pick up any before I left. No matter, I'll manage!
Daiso Brand Liquid Eyeliner in Black
I've heard so many good reviews for this, and I couldn't wait to try it! There were a few different types of eyeliners but I settled on this one. Not sure why, it just seemed to reach out to me!
I wasn't too sure about these, but I figured why not! For that price, it's amazing! I loved the colours, and there were a few others, but I thought I'll try it out first and then maybe go back and buy hundreds more!
Daiso Brand Cheek Blush in Pink
I thought this was really cute, and for such a small price, I couldn't go past it! I have blushes that cost over $10.00 that were absolute garbage, so if I can find a blush that costs me less than $3.00, I'll be happy!
So overall, I'm really happy with my Daiso haul! The nail art is just amazing and I know will be wonderful, and the makeup certainly looks promising, especially with all of the reviews I've read!
I can't wait to try all of these products, and I will certainly be reviewing a couple of these items, and I'm sure we'll be seeing a NOTD including some of those gorgeous nail art items!
So, what do you think of Daiso?
