If you've been reading my blog for a while you'll know that I am a huge K-Beauty fan (I'm talking about Korean cosmetics - so nothing Kardashians themed). When I was in Japan I could hardly contain myself - all the drugstores there are packed with the cutest South Korean & Japanese makeup brands. It was definitely the walhalla of kawaii. And not only is the packaging cute, but the products are always innovative and super effective. While Estée Lauder is just now coming out with a sheet mask, drugstore brands from Japan and South Korea have been doing this since forever. K-Beauty is sadly very not easy to find where I live in Belgium or pretty much anywhere else in Europe or the USA. You'll have better luck in big cities (you'll find a section in Harrods & Selfridges when you're in London, for example) or Asian malls, but I usually just turn to eBay for my kawaii fix. With the right seller & knowledge about import taxes, you'll find the best prices and good service. I should warn you though: it might become a little addictive.
