My favorite discount drugstore chain in Japan is Matsumoto Kiyoshi. An interesting characteristic about the store chain is that items are priced differently depending on the location, so you have to do your research to know where to purchase what.
Anyway, I found myself at Matsu Kiyo in Umeda in Osaka, which my mom swears has the cheapest prices overall among Matsu Kiyo stores nationwide. I spent 45 minutes there last weekend finding birthday present items for my sister and examining items that I’ve never seen in any of their Tokyo locations.
Some of the more interesting ones: a glue-type thing that helps shape your eyes to create an ephicanthal fold (which makes you look “cuter”), lip cream made of uric acid (supposed to make your lips soft, but as PMK says, “Why not pee on your lips if that’s the case?”), a powder that helps you get rid of panty outlines on your skin (a must-have pre-sex item?), and a powder that makes your nipples pink (hence the title of this blog item).
Don’t worry M, I didn’t get you any of them… though I was tempted to get you the lip cream.
