From Japan Crate comes Kira Kira Crate, a box dedicated to Japanese beauty! Kira Kira means “to sparkle” and with this box full of makeup, skincare, and other tools from Japan, you will sparkle as well!

The booklet included with the box has a brief welcome letter, a list of the products included, and additional pages give English instructions for each product.
Shinsui Uruhada Skincare Lotion — Googling this literally got me no results except apparently it’s sold in Singapore. I’m a bit curious as to the real intent of this product — “lotion” indicates it’s a toner (Japanese beauty lines call hydrating toners “lotions”) but the booklet says it’s an all over body lotion. It has a yuzu citrus fragrance.
I also can’t help but notice how similar the logo is to the more popular, well-loved and famous Hada Labo skincare line… is it just me?
I’m not saying it’s an attempt to knock-off… but it does seem a bit uncanny.
Cat Bath/Shower Gel — A plastic cat shaped bottle of orange scented body wash.
Pure Smile Yokai Sheet Mask — Just in time for Halloween. It’s a yokai (demon) printed sheet mask.
Eyebrow Shaver with Mirror — When you’re too lazy to pluck or wax, shave your unruly brow edges into submission for a clean look.
I’m honestly curious to try this.
2-in-1 Sparkly Purple Mascara and Eyeliner — This is a purple glitter mascara and eyeliner wand in one.
Malibu Face Paint — A two toned face paint stick to help you paint your face for Halloween. I can’t ever see myself using it, not even as makeup which the booklet suggests.
The wand has a spoolie with a pointed eyeliner tip.
Last month’s Kira Kira Crate was strong, and this one just feels thrown together. The items feel cheap and inexpensive, and since we’ve seen that a whole bottle of toner can fit into the box it would be nice to see a higher quality item like the real Hada Labo or another solid choice.
