Stealing Beauty: Isetan Mirror at Lumine Shinjuku


I was hesitant to share this post with you (as this is my secret beauty cubbyhole), but what's the point in knowing something great, if you can't share it with the world (and by world, I mean anyone who reads this blog) :D


Launched in March 2012, Isetan mirror showcases a modest selection of luxury cosmetics brands. If my memory serves me correctly, brands such as Dior, Clarins, Lancome, Bobby Brown, Clinique, Estee Lauder, Guerlain, Nars, Helena Rubinstein, RMK, Shiseido, THREE, Anna Sui, Addiction, Shu Uemura, Kobako, as well as their own beauty line Isetan Mirror Beaute, are available at Isetan Mirror.


If one of the above mentioned brands product has sold out at one of the major department stores, 99.9% of the time I know I'll be able to find it here. Isetan Mirror offers a relaxed shopping environment, without the hassle of pushy of sales associates, and overcrowded sales floors. 

Isetan Mirror is located on the second floor of Lumine 2. 

Looking gorgeous one lipstick at a time.

    1. A beauty paradise hidden away from all the insanity of the major department stores.

    2. I have to ask now - do you know whether this (and other similar department stores... or wherever you find makeup) will be open over Dec 23-24, and Jan 1-3? I think those will be the few days I will be in Tokyo... terrible timing isn't it? I'm in Tokyo on the few days they're likely to be closed because of New Year and Emperor's Bday!

    3. All store will be open on the 23rd-24th. As for the 1st, stores may be open for half a day, I really can't remember, but remind me before you come in December and I'll get to you :)

    4. Thank you so much, you're wonderful :)

      I realise that since I'll be in Hong Kong up until the 21st, I'll just do all my non-Japanese makeup shopping there as it may be cheaper, and pick up all my Japanese makeup when I actually drop into Japan - so that's all the Addiction (those nail polishes that couldn't be shipped!), Suqqu, Laduree etc etc. Do let me know if you want me to pick up anything for you too - I'll probably ask you later just before I arrive :)

  2. Thanks for sharing; I had no idea! I will be making a visit; I like the dept. stores but they do get too busy for me.
