haul: more Illamasqua blushes and swatches (Chased, Excite, Tremble, Create), Illamasqua Intense Lipgloss (Mistress, Petulant)

I've got some more Illamasqua blush swatches for you. The boxed items below are from a spree organized by Jo and Hyd (click here to request for sprees and join the mailing list). The rest were bought from Farah's blogsale a while back. <3

L-R clockwise: Matt Primer, blush in Chased, Excite, Create, Tremble

Chased - Bright Rose Pink

Excite - Vivid Apricot

Tremble - Soft Lilac Pink

Create - Warm Peach Honey

Swatches on my inner arm:

Matte Primer. Milky consistency, spreads easily, smells sweet. Kept the oilies at bay for a few hours before I had to blot.

My first intense lipglosses! Bright, bold and glossy! Comes in a squeezy plastic tube. I find it a bit hard to apply. What's the best way? Straight from the tube or with a brush or with my finger?

Haul: MUFE and Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation

About 2 weeks ago (19 Feb), a few of us onsugarettes met up for a very important mission: to raid the MUFE store at Tras Street. It was Sarah's (FacesBySarah) birthday and there was a special 30% off storewide sale going on for this occasion. Such good deals cannot be missed!

I came out of the store with the following:

  • All Mat Face Matifying Primer
  • Mat Velvet+ Matifying Foundation in #30
  • Super Matte Loose Powder in #20

And just last week, there was a 20% storewide sale at Metro and guess what? I went ahead and bought another foundation, like as if I needed one!. Oh well! I've been dying to try this one out too, and would have gotten it sooner or later anyway.

And because of that, ahem...

haul: Dior and Shiseido sales

There were two sales going on last week, Shiseido and Dior. Nope, I didn't make it to either cos I was stuck in the office, but I still landed myself some goodies via onsugarettes who are ever so helpful! I collected this loot from Kim (ladeekim) when I met up with her at the gym.

Dior palettes CP-ed by Fatin (SGD35 each). These were what were left on the second day of the sale, so I just grabbed both. Never really had a look at Dior before, but I couldn't pass up the chance of owning one at a much cheaper price.

Maquillage singles from Kim, MM palette from MissJo who had an extra (SGD8 each). I didn't really know the retail price of the MM palette until I dropped by Watsons one evening and saw it selling for SGD25+. LIKE SERIOUSLY?? And the Maquillage singles also retail at SGD20+ each from what Kim told me. So yeah, I guess I got a good deal.

And a backup tube of Boots No7 Mattifying make-up base from Kim from when she holidayed in Chiangmai in September!

Hurray for Onsugarettes! Special thanks to Fatin, Jo and Kim for all the trouble! <3
