What can you buy in Daiso? Well, basically anything from kitchenware to cosmetics, you name it. Some of their products are quite good and very useful too. We are going to provide you with the list of things you should buy in Daiso. Particularly, for the ladies.


MAKEUP/COSMETICS

The three colors of eyeshadow palette are great for everyday use if you want to put on a light make-up and to lift up your eyes. The palette comes with four shades in each box and an applicator. Although they’re not too pigmented, it’s still a good eyeshadow palette, especially for beginners. We suggest you use your own brush to apply the eyeshadow as the applicator is easy to break off.

2. False Eyelashes

The current makeup trend in Japan is the doll eyes look. To achieve this look, you need a contact lens and of course, false eyelashes. You have a lot of options to choose from dramatic to natural eyelashes. These eyelashes are great and can last up to 1-2 months with proper care. Show off your pretty lashes with these Daiso falsies.

3. Eyebrow Pencil

The eyebrow pencil is easy to use and it comes with a spoolie to brush up those hairs. You can get them in various shades from brown, black and light brown.

Brushes are the perfect addition to makeup. Daiso sells a variety of brushes such as powder brush, blush brush and eyeshadow brush. The bristles are surprisingly soft to apply on your face and can last for a long time too.

Other than the face, you will also need a hand cream to soften your skin. There are two kinds of hand cream such as collagen and hyaluronic acid. It will keep your skin smoother and younger. The cream has a floral smell and a bit thick once applied. The smell can last up to a couple of hours.

3. Pore Strips

Isn’t it annoying when you need to fit everything in one bag, especially your face products? One of the travel hacks you need to know is to fill your cream, moisturizer, and other liquid products in a mini container. Using this small case, you will have more space to put bigger things.

2. Storage bags/Vacuum seal bags

Storage bags and seal bags are your best friend. You can stash up to four clothes in one bag and it comes in different sizes. Besides that, you can put your shoes in the storage bag too if you don’t want to ruin your clothes. Other than that, buy travel pouch to store your passport and a laundry bag to put your dirty clothes in.

3. Socks and Leg Warmers

We often lose our socks when traveling and to avoid spending more money, buy plenty of Daiso socks. Not only they’re inexpensive, but they’re also super comfortable and cute too. Leg warmers are similar to socks except they don’t cover your feet. They can help you to prevent muscle cramps throughout the cold weather. Don’t forget to pick up these items when you’re in Daiso.

4. Gloves
