In April 2013, Aqualabel had launched the new Anti-Aging Line in Singapore!
Late February, I attended Watsons Beauty Day Out with lots of other beauty bloggers. It was well, kinda like a mega bloggers gathering with balloons and foods & drinks~ Lolx~
Continued from my previous post Part 2 HERE..... I met up with my friend, Di (who happen to also visit Japan almost same timing as mine) target to visit Shibuya, Harajuku, Yoyogi and flea market.
[edited 12 Jul 2012: I had just added some more pictures and details of the stuffs I 'd bought! ^^v~]
First stop was Shibuya. Di quoted from her bro-in-law that if you didn't take a photo of the iconic spot of the place, means you never went there before. And so~~~ we MUST take this statue of Hachiko (忠犬ハチ公像) to prove that we were here! hahahx~
I've been dying wanting to post all my hauls up and always find no time! >,< There are still more to show, I'm gonna seperate them to few posts. ^^"

Shiseido AquaLabel White Protect Milk UV (SPF 30 PA++) $26.90 : Influenced by AutumnCandy *winks* ^▽~
Uriage Soothing Cleansing Water $34.90 : Apparently the sales lady talks good!! She compliments my skin type (combi is good cos we have less wrinkles) then she tells me to make it better by using her products. She knows her products really well.. *3 claps for her* Actually I want only cleansing water but I bought 2 more items... =\ over budget!
From this week onwards till September, certain Uriage products will go on Promotion. Do check them out now if you wish to stock up!
Uriage Hydracristal Masque Thermal $34.90 : I likey this Masque! On first use, I feel my skin so smooth, 1 min after washing it off! I actually got STUN when I unintentionally brush my hands over my face and found it SO SMOOTH, felt as if I powdered my face. Hahhax~
Uriage Hyseac Active Care with AHA (discount 20%) $31.92 : Said to use for my oil spots, white heads and T zone.. I only dare to use at night as it contains AHA...
Pure Beauty Pomegranate Antioxidant Starter Pack $4.95

Jurlique Balancing Day Care Cream $25 : I wanted to get the best seller Recovery Gel but its still expensive to me.. :( Notice that the cream is fully sealed, hence I'm not really worried of its lifespan.
Gatineau Anti-Aging Cream $10: For my mum =D
MAC Brush Cleanser $16.20 ($1.80 discount thanks to Na) : 赚到! 母哈哈哈!
EDM Itahake Kabuki Brush ~$14 : Ordered with Na. I tot of using this for calligraphy.... hmm..
Free gifts given to me during my purchase @ Luxasia Sales!
Some detailed pics of the products. Notice the red lines, they appeal to me. XD~
I got this free sample coupon of SKINC (Skin supplement Bar) product. So here's the product I got, a VERY Familiar serum to all...
Its Hyaluronic Acid!! ^____^ But its only 5ml.. Upon getting the serum, my face got examined by a 'scanner' where I can clearly see my skin layer on the monitor and I also got talked into buying their Facial Treatments.. I'm such a sucker for treatments. =_="
I had finished this little baby Serum and I find that its not bad~ However I couldn't review much because I rotated it with another serum and I only use it for the Day. All i can say is that it felt almost like Hada Labo where it will give a sticky feeling after its absorbed to your skin.
Inside the serum, the capsules (little blue round balls) are actually Active ingredients. The active ingredients are released into your skin once the capsules 'breaks open'. You can even combine different serums (up to 3 types) into a bottle, so it'll mean that 1 drop of serum gives you 3 types of treatments.
1 bottle of serum cost about $120++ (forgot exact price..)
I ended up buying 2 Oxy Miracle Infusion Treatments, 1 for $45 and 1 for $89. Why 2 diff price for same treatment?
Because I'm new customer so I got 1 at an even cheaper price. If you're interested, go down to any SKINC outlets and sign up for the treatment at $45! =)
I have a coupon from NDP which entitle me to buy Oxy Miravle Peel Treatment at $38! Woohoo!~
Short review of purenavi facial cleansing gel
Its clear, its watery gel, it foams up, it cleanses well, it makes the skin soft and smooth after washing off. Yap! Its about it.. ^_^
I like it for the fact that it is not the type of facial foam that makes my skin tight and dry after washing. The foam is not as much as aqualabel's, and yet its not really that mild too. So its my ideal face wash for now! ^.^ I'm glad I bought it!
And now for some FUN TEST! =D Picture says it all! I wonder if K-Palette Liquid Eyebrow will be as/more waterproof than excel.
FYI : Canmake's not waterproof.
Lastly, a very simple LOTD: Androgynous Look (Or not? o_O")
Pls excuse for my shiny forhead, tired face and already collapsed hairstyle as i wore this look from 12pm-12am..

Product names written and coloured in turquoise were given by its company to me for trial.
I was thinking of writing reviews of the most recent products that I've bought and tried, but I think writing a regimen better explains how the products work on me as I find that only when they are used together, it makes my skin better. It is not only about 1 product, it is the whole set of skincare products I use that can give me better skin.
Some people will go lazy, skipping toners, serums/essence, or eyecreams, thinking that moisturizers can do all the work, or cleansing/scrubbing is enough.
And I must admit that I am kind of lazy sometimes too but I can be very hardworking as well, going all the way to massaging almost everything onto my face. (sound kinda silly right? XD~)
I will speak of my 'most hardworking' way of skincare & makeup regimen... I don't want to speak of my lazy part otherwise, some people might just follow! Xp~
Before I start, I just had to say that this entry is not really about promoting or recommending Hada Labo products. Its just coincidence that when I bought my hada labo products for only 3 weeks, an invitation to a Focus Group by FR3B was sent to me. Hence, I started to perk up and do the 'most hardworking' skincare routine so that I could get the best results from the products I use, and be able to explain more of my thoughts about their products.
Enough of explaining, let's STARTO!
Morning Skincare to Base Makeup Routine
1. Aqualabel White Clear Foam: For every morning face wash. It has whitening effect after washing as it contains white clay powder (But I kind of feel like its not whitening, its more like making my face look paler). I like how clean it washes my natural sebum off from my face as I always wake up with quite an oily face. On the other side, it is rather drying too. I am currently thinking to use this only at night and replace it with a moisturising or gentle face wash for morning.
↙ (Taken from http://www.aqualabel.com.tw/products/b_index.htm)
2. Hada Labo Super Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Lotion: Drop a few drops on my palm, spread around both hands and then start pressing it against my face (including my eyes), following the method I've seen from the HK Hada Labo CF. I find that it is better absorbed when you press your palm on your face for longer timing, compare to quick patting. Most users tend to only pat it in quick motions as they're in a rush and want it to be quickly absorbed, hence experience a very sticky end result. I find the stickiness feel is not a problem or either that I might had gotten used to its stickiness ^_^"
↙ (Taken from http://www.hadalabo.com.sg/index_EN.htm)
3. Hada Labo Super Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Essence: 1 pea size of essence and using the same pressing method as mentioned above, on my eyes. As my eyes are very dry and currently more wrinkles are forming due to lack of sleep and over-using my eyes watching manga, monitors.. (=_="), hence I use the essence to moisturise my eyes first before I put my eye serum on. (If you wish to follow, please do it at your own risk! I am not responsible if you grow milia seeds around your eyes!)
Lancome Blanc Expert Anti-Dark Circles Eye Serum: 1 pea size of serum and spread around my under eyes and a little on my eyelids. I will massage my eyes in circular motions clock wise 10 times, anti-clockwise 10 times, then clockwise 10 times again. This helps my tired eyes to revive and kind of make the dark circles looks a little lighter. The serum contains mini mica so it also brighten up my under eyes. It is watery and smooth,easily spread around, so massaging it around the eyes is quite easy.
Decleor Relaxing Eye Cream: This eyecream is equivalent to the above 2 products, more like a 2 in 1 eyecream. It moisturises and it can reduce puffiness and dark circles. However I feel that using this eyecream alone is not as good as using the above 2. It moisturise but lesser, it reduces dark circles but not as visibly. Hence, I only use this eyecream when I am really in a rush. It is between lotion and cream type, easy to massage on eye for first few rounds, after that it becomes a little sticky, preventing me to glide around my skin, hence I can't finish up my usual 3 steps eye massage.

4. Neutrogena Hydro Boost Essence: Its watery with a smooth feel after skin absorbs. Moisturising level is not up to my expectation but still, I consider it as a hassle-free product! A pump-spread-pat and go kind of product. Good for people who don't want to spend too much time putting on skincare!
I still do some 'anti-gravity' massaging on my face with the essence but before I could finish my massaging, my face already absorb all the essence. 2 ~ 2½ pumps is just nice for my face and neck.
Aqualabel Enhancer MO: Few drops on a cotton pad and lightly pat it onto face & neck in upwards motion (excluding eyes). This enhancer contains collagen (I love collagen! =p~) so I feel its good to end with this enhancer since I had been doing all the 'blood circulation', 'anti-gravity' massages, so this is an additional plus point for my regimen! Very lightweight, watery, moisturising kind of lotion. (Heard that sensitive skin have no problem using this range)

5. SANA Pore Putty Makeup Base Clear: Right after my last step of skincare routine, my face usually still feels tiny bit sticky. And when I apply on the pore putty, I feel an instead smoothness on my face. It is not an oily-smooth, nor is it a powdery-smooth. It is just Smooth-smooth! ^.^"" It fills up my large pores on my cheeks and nose just like the picture shows... like cementing your face. hahhax...
L'egere -Korea- Water Drop Shiny Pearl BBCream: Original colour of the content was quite dark shade of brown, after using my middle and ring fingers to spread it out on my face, the colour turns to 1 shade lighter than my skintone. It also brightens up my dull skin and visibly conceals my dark circles! Although it concealed my flaws, but I still find my undereye looks greyish, hence I will do my eye concealing work on top of the BBCream.
The BB has sunblock with moisturising effect and most importantly its sweat proof! Although it doesn't state the SPF, but I feel that it does have some sunblock effect.
Hereby putting up a pic taken at a most recent event that I've ran, I was running around from early morning 6am till 12pm, outdoors (The weather was not very hot, but still I'm taking in free UV Rays like nobody business!). I had my usual morning skincare & base makeup routine on that day, when I finally could go to toilet to check out my face @ 11+am (I've already started to imagine half melted makeup and many caked laugh lines and getting prepared to stun myself in the mirror), all I was looking at was a perfect makeup-ed face with only some sweats around my forehead... PERFECT I say! I was so amazed and this prove that the BBCream is really sweat proof! It's moisturising factor I would give...70%, conceal factor 80%, anti-oxidant & fights dullness 85%, other factors... unsure.. hahax~
Picture is taken right after I went to the toilet. Top pic is taken outdoor and bottom is indoor. As can see, you'll find the outdoor pics looks natural, but there is some white cast on my face with a greyish tint in the indoor pics.

</span></span>6. *Extra Point* In the morning-afternoon @ my workplace, I will drink a cup of hot Green Tea (no milk, no sugar!). this helps to keep me awake plus my body will take in its anti-oxidants , preventing my face and skin from turning dull (as due to lack of sleep, over-work etc..)
I would say Green Tea is a better choice compare to coffee if you ask me how to keep yourself awake from your boring work. XD~ And before I take my sip of tea, I will first have a deep breath of Green Tea scent from my cup. =p~
Night Skincare Routine
A. Aqualabel Deep Clear Oil Cleansing: 3 full pumps on dry hands and spread all around face & neck, draw circular motions to remove traces of makeups. Afterwhich, take a little water, spread on palms and emulsify the oil cleanser on face. Continue circular motions on face, then wash off.
While my face and hands are still wet, I take 1 more pump and apply the emulsion onto face and this time I draw circles on eyes, nose, cheeks & jaw areas where I have most frequent clogged pores.
Aqualabel White Clear Foam: Strips off the remaining traces of makeup and the oil cleanser. Still, I feel the little dryness after using. =\
Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant: I should name this as my Power (Fav) Product! As quoted, its really super fine powder. I dripped a few drops of water mix with the powder on palm, then spread the paste onto whole face (include the part nearest to undereye, as I have clogged pores there too) & neck. Lightly rub it concentrating yet again the parts that usually clogs up the most, and also areas like behind sideburns (infront of ear), behind ear, back of neck (if you willing to use that much powder). Until all the micro-powder beads fully dissolves, then wash off with water. Immediately, my skin feels so smooth and looks brighter! To further prove that the product is good, I've tested it throughout for 3 consecutive days. Everyday I put on makeup to work, my face looks so much brighter and the dullness doesn't comes back only until when I about to reach home at late night. On the 4th and 5th day, I stopped using it, and I see my face looking dull and not as smooth like the first 3 days. My face immediately turn dark when I apply my makeup. This microfoliant is my life!

Decleor Relaxing Eye Cream
▶▷► ⁄∕ ( ) ↙ (refer above)
D. Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair: An anti-aging skincare which is to be used at night. I often alternate around this and Palmer's Fade Cream for night routines, or I will apply masks if I'm lazy.
Few drops of the serum and spread all over face (exclude eyes) and neck. Its gel-liquid type, absorbs real fast, even before I have time to spread it out. I will then cup my whole face with 2 hands for some time before I do my anti-gravity massage again.
After waking up, I feel my skin is hydrated, supple and feels 'repaired'. (Influenced by its name =p) I feel that its like an all-rounder, fights wrinkles, anti-oxidant, hydrates, repair damage skin...
PALMER’S Skin Success Ultra Fade Cream: This is a kind of skin bleaching product. I understand many of you might not be able to use this, but me having a very stubborn face or rather, thick skin face, I am blessed to be able to try any products and not have any reactions (so far so good *touches wood*)
This is by far the best skin whitener I've used and it works really very well on my scars, which often caused by over exerting pressure on my skin while I was picking my acne.. (itchy hands I know!) About 5-7 days, I can see immediate lightening effect on the scar that I applied on. Of course, the scar I said is a not a wound, so you can't apply on an open wound or acne that's not healed, you probably will get an infection if you put the cream on it!
And some claim that its very oily after using it, I find its still ok, as this is not the last step, I find moisturisers are usually the ones that makes the face oily. No massage is done when I use this cream.

E. Aqualabel Enhancer MO
Clinique Moisture Surge: A smooth gel like cream that protects my face from pollution, dirt and dehydration. After I applied a thin layer, I can feel like I'm wearing a shield, not afraid that my face will loose moisture. By massaging, the cream gets absorbed better into the skin. The next day I woke up although with a rather oily face, I still feel its hydrated, and when I wash off with water, my face feels supple and silky smooth.

Night Treatment Mask Routine
i. Clinique Moisture Surge: Apply thick layer of cream onto face and massage it to allow it better absorbed by the skin. After massaging, if needed I will apply another thin layer on top before I sleep. The last layer will become a shield that traps the first layer of essence into my skin, kind of like how an enhancer work...
Kitoko Katani Masks: Another of my Power Product!.. Just can't get enough of these masks.. ^.^~ Comes in different types like whitening, hydrating, radiance, etc... I most love the Red Wine Mask as its hydrating effect is good! 1 pack of mask has enough serum that I could even spread on to my arms, legs, foot, chest... ^_^"" If I don't do that, the mask will be dripping serum all over my body! I put all masks inside my fridge, so my face gets instant coolness when I put on my mask.
One way that it helps is minimising my large pores, hydrates my face, firming and also fights wrinkles. It feels sticky after mask being removed. I massage the remaining serum into skin and if needed, I will remove excess with pressing a tissue over my face or strip off some serum by wetting my palms and wipes them off my face.

Hada Labo Focus Group by FR3B
On 16 July, I went to Vivocity to attend Hada Labo Focus Group held by FR3B company. I met up with the 2 Joyces (Joyce Lim & Joyce Sept) hehex~ =p
Man! I was like so lost when I came out of the MRT.. =_= I'm a direction idiot... And worst still, its first time that Joyce Sept went to Vivo! Together, we are lost birds...
Anyhoo, Joyce Lim saved us from having searching the whole Vivo to find that White Dog Cafe, its just infront of Faceshop! Phew~
So, at the cafe I saw noppi (U're so much cuter than the ones in your pics! i think you can throw your camera away already =X) and hazelnutt. (happily waving to her at the other end of table~ ^.^y~)
I also met 2 other bloggers but I can't recall their names already (its been a week... my memory is super short, if you're here pls shoutout to me! ^_^)
During the session, we were asked alot of questions like, what are our usual skincare routine... what are our favourite products among all the products we use in our usual routine... explain why we chose those products as our favourite (I mentioned it too in my skincare regimen above)
After understanding how we feel about using their products, they went on to find out where we seen their commercial and ads.. what we remembered and felt towards watching their commercial and advertisements... what is their tagline... etc.. Its a memory testing game for me! (>,<")
All in all, this focus group is a very detailed discussion (more like an Q & A session). I was initially thinking that maybe there would be alot of discussions between bloggers so the PR staff will grab infos from our conversations. But later found out that its rather a one-way traffic. I was quite enthusiastic in replying their questions mainly because I always liked to give opinions and suggestions (too responsive eh? ^_^" kinda too influenced by my job.. hahax..)
But I'm always stucked in my half sentence as my English is no good OTL||||
After the session and grabbing few bites off from the finger-food plates (which happen to be my dinner!), we finally gotten some freebies from them. A box of Hada Labo Super Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Mask and a sample size of Sunplay Powdery White Sunblock Lotion (SPF 47 PA+++).
Yeah! Another Hada Labo product to try!~ Infact I had used the sunblock before many years back. I quite like the smooth & whitening effect it gave after applying, but I couldn't remember much about how good it is in terms of blocking off the UV rays, probably one day I shall try it again when I finish up my current sunscreens.
Thank you for reading this longlong post written in such a bad English.. ^_^" I only know how to use a few common words and I think I've used it too often. Please bare with me for my future posts, as you'll probably be seeing those words again & again & again & again~.... =p
Lastly, I just have to say that I've spent writing this entry for 12 hours! (break up to 2 days) Can you believe it!?! =_= Mainly in between I was chatting with friend, hugging my cat, dozing off and what not...
Till then! Cheers! (●♡●)
Product names written and coloured in turquoise were given by its company to me for trial.

Uniqlo Abstract Leggings $14.90: Japanese aren't that tall, that's why the leggings only reach about half of my calf only.. And it kinda look like PJs..

Bought from Allan (Kosmo) http://coslensescatalogue.blogspot.com
Geo Tri Series $15/pair: In Grey
Anime Lens $15/pair: in CP-A6

(Kanebo) KATE Eyebrow Colour $14.50: In lightest shade LB-2 (Later on shows comparison of KATE & Heavy Rotation Eyebrow Mascara)
(Kanebo)KATE Gel eye shadow $14.50: In GD-1
Both of them bought at ALT @ The Heeren (View MariAsh's blog about it!) ALT is BIGGGG!!! (I meant big place Lolx) I've also found one new Korea cosmetic counter brand in ALT yesterday which the BA claimed that their products all contains Botox! And they frequently change the cosmetics and the colours, almost every month! I am like kind of tempted to try it, but na & me think that it definitely gonna cost a bomb since it has Botox! OoO"
I kinda forgot what is the name of that brand now... (Should have asked for a brochure! Darn..)
Stars Makeup Heaven Eyeshadow Pans $5 each: Two to Tango & Flare to the Dramatic
Testing out the 'Oh!-Very-Bouncy!' (quoted by na) Eyegel, and some swatches...
Most bottom shows: Eyegel → Two to Tango overlaying Eyegel → Two to Tango → Flare to the Dramatic

Further on... Watson's Hauls:
Heal Pharm Charcoal Nose Pose Pack $1.95/box: It's Ariya's recommendation! (Na's sis)
(Shiseido) AquaLabel Moist Essence CL $29.90: Collagen for Cheeks! I recently find that my face's shape kinda changed (can't fight aging..sigh~), hence thinking to get some elasticity back to my loose skin!
Ora2 Stain Clear Tooth Paste $ 5.50
Ora2 Stain Clear Mouth Wash $6.95: I admit I hate using Mouth Wash! But I am so attracted by the silly but cute girls animation in the Ora2 commercial!
Royale Bouquet Hand Wash $9.95 for 2: I love the packaging! Indeed looking very 'royal' there! But the scent however kinda smells weird...
Kracie Epilat Mini Bleaching Cream for Body Hair $9.90: I had waited for AGES for Singapore to sell body hair Bleach agents!
Kracie Epilat Cite Line Depilatory (Hair Removing) Cream $18.90: For Skin Sofron Type (its written on it, I don't know what is sofron..◐_◐")
Kracie Epilat Mini Bleaching Cream for Body Hair:
2 packs of A+B. Is mentioned that 1 pack of A+B can use for the whole body.
As per what the Japan Epilat website states, it can only be used on arms and legs. (But I am currently thinking otherwise... heh heh heh ◐∇◐)
Instructions of the Removal Cream...
Difference usage instructions found on the back of the Removal Cream packaging and the paper which was found inside the packaging. (underlined in RED)
Final conclusion (as translated from the original Epilat's site):
- Can be used on Arms, Legs AND Underarms.
- But refrain from using on Facial Hair and (Head) Hair
Klorane Gentle Dry Shampoo (Spray type) $14.90: I had also been looking for Dry Shampoo for a long time, I totally don't remember that na had told me she is using one... hahhax~ Nevertheless, I'm happy to be able to get hold of a dry shampoo in Singapore! I totally had no idea what other brands have dry shampoos. I know there are many more brands that have and are selling alot cheaper than $14.90, but they are all only available in USA! =(((
Finally, comparisons (mini Review) with KATE & Heavy Rotation Eyebrow Mascaras:
As you can see that KATE's has golden mini glitters in it, while Heavy Rotation is a fully matt brown mascara.
I find that its easier to get HR's content onto the eyebrow than that of KATE's. Reason being HR has a bigger and wider brush, content is sticker, hence it can pick up alot and it grabs on to the eyebrow really well, plus its waterproof.
KATE's has small brush with a narrower brush end, is watery, picks up content little by little when you removed it from tube, however feels softer after it drys up on your eyebrow, plus it gives your eyebrow a glittery effect!
I personally like both for their own factors.
HR is matt and colour is on the blonde side, suitable when I bleach my hair to yellow.
KATE's gives my eyebrow a softer look and it looks more to GOLD than towards blonde, which I like too! ^_^ (Just because its GOOOOLLLDDD... XD)
Before I end this entry, I just want to say that YEAH! I AM NO LONGER YSL, KATE, SMH VIRGIN! YIPPEEEEEEE!!!!~~~
Till then! Cheers! (●♡●)
Yesterday, after class @ Bugis, I went to Tampines to catch the Watsons sales at Tampines Mall Atrium.
Actually I wanted to take some pics of the fair but my hp run out of battery. The fair is not big, it filled the atrium infront of Isetan but there are lots of room for walking still. I only saw a few brands displayed like Aqualabel, Majolica Majorca, ZEA, Bio-essence, Skin79, Avene and some others...
When I saw the fair, I immediately went up to Aqualabel counter without even pausing to look around first, as I've already got an idea what I wanted to buy (and psycho myself buy these and NOTHING MORE!)
And here's what I've gotten...
Whitening Cleansing Foam $16.90
Whitening Deep Clear Cleansing Oil $18.50
Moisturising Aqua Enhancer MO $24.90
According to the BA, the whitening range and Acne range are usually used by acne prone skin people. So I guess the blue range is fine for me. I was rather worried its either too dry or too oily.
I took the facial foam mainly because 1) I running out of one; 2) I saw the demo of the video in FB.
The oil cleanser was highly recommended by Na & a few other bloggers who had tried out during their facial, hence I have no doubt about it! ^.^
For the Enhancer MO, I chose the moisturising range as the BA says it has collagen (I ♡ the word Collagen!) Supposedly I should have read the specs of each and every product so I can just grab and go, but my brain is feeling lazy to memorise everything. =p
Cleansing Oil: As described by Na, its really watery! Doesn't leave my face dry or oily after washoff.
Cleansing Foam: Alot of foam yes! Includes some white clay granules, but feels rather dry & alitte tight after washoff.
Aqua Enhancer MO: Feels like toner but alittle thicker infact. Doesn't give greasy feel after patting the content to my face. Face don't look oily (like the times when I use my other moisturiser at the last step).
Total spent of $60.30, I gotten 2 free facial coupons. (1 free facial for $30 spent) And since I had 'Liked' the Aqualabel page in FB, I got additional 1 more!
The BA asked me to login to FB using their lappy and she searched to see if I had liked their page, so..... you girls better don't forget to 'LIKE' their page or try to blaf through the BAs! ^o^~
Side note: I so wanted to buy a sun pact too from Skin79, but na didn't want it anymore so I guess its also good too. So I can spend lesser! I was just very tempted by that pink diamond bluetooth earpiece and the free limited set of BB creams! *slaps own head* Don't think about it anymore!
Unless someone who won the earpiece, can give it to me? =p I prefer the earpiece over BB!
Another Watsons Haul: with 20% discounts
Manicare Cuticle Trimmer & Pusher 6.30 (Usual $7.90)
Manicare Corn Plane $10.50 (Usual:$13.15)
To be frank, I DO NOT know how to use these stuffs... After reading tutorials online, I found that I had totally bought the wrong stuffs! $$$ wasted...
Gaurdian Hauls: 2 for $3.80 offer!
Kotex Luxe Pads $1.95
pHcare Intimate Wash $1.95
Another one of my Happiest purchase ^▽^ coming up!! This Ms. Makeup eye blending brush was bought from a new store name SHINS @ Tampines Mall #02-16C.
I was attracted by their very bright and neat store, so I went in and asked the BA whether its a new store and if they have other outlets. She says SHINS is the first store to be opened in Singapore, they have many outlets in Malaysia and reading from their newsletter, SHINS is already 10 years old!
I was infact looking for Ecotools because I just bought 1 from Watsons not long ago and I love its texture, so smooth, so soft! SHINS also sell Ecotools but wasn't on sales or promotion, hence I looked for alternatives and I saw this! Ms. Makeup tools!
The packaging was pretty and unique. I asked BA if I can feel the brush and she let me. ^_^ When I swipe the brush on my back hand, immediately I felt OhHhhhh so soft, so thick! I use my fingers to touch and pinch it, and I was totally SOLD! XD~ The BA added on, (in mandarin) the brush is made by natural animal fur (what animal, i'm not sure?), the fur can capture shadows better and it can make your lids look matt because natural fur can absorb sebum from your lids, while synthetic ones can't .
The brush's packed densely, thick, and very soft. The handle has this rubber grip design that make it not easy to slip off your hands/fingers.
And guess what, the price is only $10! Comparing to the brushes that Sasa sells for a price range of $10~20, I definitely like Ms. Makeup better! (I hope its good too when I use it!)
I searched through the net and found this site: http://www.parispresents.com (Company which distributes ecotools & Ms. Makeup)
I probably think some of you might have seen Ms. Manicure & Ms. Pedicure before.. but its definitely my first time seeing Ms. Makeup! =D
SHINS has some other products like Kings & Queens, YoungBlood Mineral Makeup, Bloom, etc..
Take a look at their newsletter! (I only pictured 2 page out of their 4 pages..lazy.. =p)
Definitely hoping to get the Air stocking too! It looks like its good! OoO!
And another round of some cutesy stuffs from ARTBOX. Its been quite long since I go all lolita/cutie with fashion o_O".. But I've always liked Ribbons, cats & laces! They are all in 1 category and that's ♡ KAWAII ♡
I overspent again (suppose to be only 1 ribbon & 1 planner) is because of this cute little mei mei (young girl).. She's so cute, kept sharing with me all the cute designs of the planner and the ribbons... I just can't resist those stuffs that she recommended me. >∆< She kept going "CUTE Right?! CUTE Right???!" and then show me this ^____^ face... sigh~
Weekly Planner (Pink) $9.90
Weekly Planner (Navy) $15.90
Checker Ribbon Hairclip $5.90
Polka Hotpink Ribbon Hairclip $3.90
Dashed stitch Pink Ribbon Hairclip $3.90
When I decided NOT TO SPEND anymore, I walked out of ARTBOX and saw all shops closing, even the atrium too! Then I wondered... How many hours did I spent shopping in Tampines Mall alone? *leaf floats down from sky*.....
Till then! Cheers! (●♡●)
