So...I dropped by JL today cos some of you evil girls got me lemming after the LA Girl matte nail polish (read the make-up blogette's entry and adorebeauty's entry). I grabbed 9 of the 16 (?) shades available. I believe I'm missing raspberry, rose, turquoise, red, black, white and indigo.
Here are the colours I got (L-R):
Alpine Green, Plum, Sky Blue, Baby Pink, Blue Twilight, Lilac, Orange, Coral and Pink.
Initially, I wanted to buy all the shades (yes they're on sale now at JL. U.P SGD 9, now it's at 15% off + extra 20% off for members). The sales lady was very helpful though in helping me decide which colours to get. She was fun to talk to, telling me how OPI is so overpriced and all that, and that LA Girl's quality is as good and caters for young people like me who are in their early 20s and like bright colours (I had to snigger there cos well I'm no longer in my twenties). Haha! And because I was buying so many, she slipped in a lip balm as free gift, as well as 6 samples of day moisturiser and night cream from this brand called babaria that she also represents. This might seem weird, but the day moisturiser contains SNAIL EXTRACT!!! There's even the illustration of a snail on the pack.. you know those slimy things that you see crawling outside after it has rained. Lol. Intriguing no doubt. And it costs like SGD99 per tub. Looks exactly like this:
Anyway, I'm digressing from my JL haul today. Other items you see in the pic are LA Girl marine base coat (prevents nails from staining) and 2 Bourjois contour clubbing waterproof pencils in Blue Remix and Bleu Neon. Swatches here with and without flash respectively.
Blue Remix looks almost green in the first pic (with flash) and looks much blue-er in the second (without flash). These two are joining the other two clubbing waterproof pencils that I already own, which are in Golden Grey Session (like a golden pale green with grey undertones?) and Green insomniak (a really gorgeous green shade). And yes, they are pretty much waterproof. They don't budge once set and they're really really smooooooth on application. Loves! Was also tempted to get a purple one..ah well, next time maybe.
And yesterday, these 2 mini OPIs (Little Red Wagon and Don't Toy With Me) came in the mail. I had gotten them over the weekend from someone selling them away. These are 3.75 ml only compared to the 15ml full-size bottles. They're cute, I'm just wondering how many applications these can last.
Next entries will probably of my Benefit hauls. I received one this week and I've got one more coming up! Yes!
