Collective haul from March till now

Hi~

*please bear with me as this is a pretty long rambly post on quite a lot of things to touch on :P*

I've been to Hong Kong in end March, and this is my (very controlled) haul! I tried to get more stuff that were not available in SG and also shopped a bit at Changi Airport's duty free. 

Missing a few but not many items from the picture

So basically I got:

1. 3 Concept Eyes
Made me feel like I went to Korea instead! 3CE in HK can be found in most I.T. store and they recently opened a Stylenanda shop in Harbour City. The prices were very comparable to Korean prices (e.g. "paint lip gloss" was HKD119 ~USD15.40 while it is USD14.31 on the site) so it was definitely okay to buy it on your trip to Hong Kong. Always loved 3CE's colorful makeup so I went for those instead of face bases. I got: nail polishes, lip pigments and a blusher. Exactly, these are the names: 

Nail lacquer: NV01, BL04, GY08, MT01, PE02, OR01, RD02.
Lip pigments: Modern White, Issue, Electro Pink, Yellow.
Duo Color Face Blush: Retro Drive

I got all the colors of the lip pigments used in this demo video because Park Sora made it look so useful and versatile hahaha. I also wanna get more Duo Color Face Blush cos its very lasting on the face and the colors are sooooo pretty!


2. Jill Stuart
It should be available in Singapore but why is it not?? Okay anyways I got a few items that made me a member lol. 

Melty lipbalm #03 Orange Coral
Lip Blossom #09 Brilliant Lily
Jelly Eye Color N 19 Passion Fruit
Nail Lacquer R 103 Ripen Strawberry
and got a free mini Jelly Lip Gloss N in 07 Cherry Frame and Luminance Makeup Primer

3. Miscellaneous + drugstore stuff
SASA and Bonjour were aplenty there, and it was a tough time controlling myself there. Most of the items were available in Singapore so I thought I should not waste baggage space and buy it here instead. I only got some lipbalms (not pictured), a Fairy Drops mascara (which is awesome) and some Topshop polishes which weren't that much a diff in term of prices when compared to SG. 

4. Changi Duty-free
This was the bomb. Picked up some a Shu Uemura lightbulb foundation, some Shu Uemura lipsticks, Guerlain Travelling Meteorites and some skincare for the folks (not pictured). I love love love Changi Duty-free and its gotta be the most awesome place on Earth.

-----------------------------


That was for March, and when back in SG, I was still pretty much in the mood for some shopping so I gotten some stuff as below:

OPI Minis!!! Super cute!!! I bought the Sheer Tints, Brazil Copaca Babies and MLB sets because there were too many praises about them online. I like buying small nail polishes because it occured to me that I'll never ever finish them. My favourite set has gotta be the MLB one, with super my-type of colors like navy and reds.

Also I recently purchased a Chanel Les Beiges in their Summer limited color N1. I don't regret buying it (looks too pretty and smells awesome) but I don't know what to expect. Is it a glow? Is it some kinda highlight? Or does it set my makeup? Cos I don't see any effect actually :P It just feels good to use it. Ya know, psychological thing. I am trying my best to use it everyday as a highlight and tell myself, it does give a natural glow :( Also within the same day, I bought a sheer lipstick (Rouge d'Armani Sheers 304) from Giorgio Armani and I love love love it. Such soft color and sophisticated design. Was contemplating between a YSL Sheer candy, Dior Lipglow and this because I wanted a sheer lippy but the other two seemed to be pretty scented. The magnetic casing was a stunner too!

Okay and lastly, I bought some stuff impulsively. A Revlon color stay foundie, a KATE Powderless foundie, a Maybelline Nude lipstick (which I hate cos it isn't nude at all and smells like rubber) and a Canmake duo blusher. Lesson learnt: never buy cosmetic without swatching it first!! Because of the "nude" label, I thought it was gonna be a nude pink and who could tell that it was gonna smell like rubber? Eek >.< Also not pictured are some Revlon lipsticks in Honey Bare and Pink In The Afternoon. Chanced upon them while looking to pick up my old fave "Soft Nude" but it was not available (anymore?). These lippies are awesome stuff at an affordable price!

Okay so its the end of my long post (or rambling) on some stuff I bought recently. I should totally go on a makeup ban and I mean it even though I can never make it :P well, atleast I tried!

[SAMPLE REVIEW] Skinfood Salmon Eye Cream

Hi! I got this a sachet of Skinfood's Salmon Eye Cream with some Korean cosmetics, and only recently I felt like trying it :P

I know right! Salmon?! On your skin?! Well, that's Skinfood for you. Salmon is not as bad as.. CREAMY CHEESE MASK! Well, I like cheese in my food but not on my face. *squirms*




It does not smell one bit like salmon. Smells a lot like jasmine flowers, A LOT!!! An overly strong smell of jasmine, which is weird since salmon is used instead. *50 points deducted*


It's a white cream, which I feel is oily and fatty, and only a little is required. This sachet lasted me for 5 times, for both eyes! Not the best texture for an eye brightening cream. I believe this is gonna be bad for people with oily or problematic skin and may not be able to withstand the richness of this eye cream.

Stays really oily for at least 10 minutes, felt like the absorption was reeeaaalllyyy slow. Besides, I've used it for 5 times and there are no significant changes. No brighteni…

[HAUL] Holika Holika!

The first branch of Holika Holika opened its doors in Singapore @ Wisma Atria today! Supposedly at 12, but when I reached there, they were still drilling and hanging stuff, and said to be back in 30 mins.

A huge poster of its ambassador at the side of its shop, CN Blue!!!!!!! Mysterious Magic Cosmetics~ (and endorsed by guys and a cat.. Hmm mysterious enough)

Before it was open! Yet to pull down its blinds~ It's a shop tucked at the corner, beside an escalator. Near Cotton On!
Couldn't get a nice picture of its sign! But you can see a bit of its interior, which is a lavender colour and has nice shelves! It goes with a mystical or magical theme :)

My mini haul from the store! VERY DE EX PLS The highly raved about egg soap @ $20.00 for 2 eggs Make-up Starter primer @ $2.50 per piece Wonder Drawing Eyeliner Auto Stick @ $10.00 Enamel Magicara Long and Curling FREE hehehe

Its a small tube since its free! But its pretty good! There's fibre in it and the brush is kinda special…

Buy & Sell Hello Kitty plushies!!

Hahaha okay so I received over 10 emails on whether I have an extra Macdonald's Hello Kitty to let go or not. Fact is that I didn't buy any >.< So I decided to create a blog post where you Kitty collectors can interact and hopefully get a reply from a potential buyer/seller. Simply comment on this post! :)

Begin your comment with WTB (want to buy) or WTS (want to sell) for easier reference!
