I didn't get an insane amount of cosmetics this round but I did promise myself to go back and get more. AAHAHAHAHA! With or without you JH!
Based on Pepper's review on the foundation, I had to get them too and I must admit, I was pleasantly surprised. It had good texture and coverage. I got it in 02 Take 1. 01 Take 1 was pinkier and this was more yellowish. I know for a fact that yellow based foundations fit me better than pink base.
I was initially worried about the coverage as the MUA mentioned that the coverage was a little sheer. Uh...okay. It's actually medium to build able. When applied, it's a little shimmery but after blending. Everything looks great and I love it!
Besides that I got an eye primer for Pinky Doodle Doo, a moisture lipstick for my mom that she likes and asked me to buy more of. Aye Aye Ma'am! Then the nail polish remover that I have yet to use and one nail polish in Delicate. It's a pale pink/peach slight shimmery colour. Definitely something I see myself using often.
However, there is no swatch of the nail colour for a good reason. After applying 3 coats of it, I realize it couldn't cover my fingernail's discolouration. I don't blame the nail colour but my nails were so yellow that lighter colours can no longer cover them. This is shocking. I've decided to not paint my nail for as long as I can to give them time to grow out. *sigh*
Too many years of abuse. My nails has not be NOT coloured for the past few years. Imagine that.
My only complains was that the lighting in the shop was horrendous. Everything was under soft yellow light. Don't get me wrong but under soft yellow lights, everything looks good. Your skin looks good, your foundation fits you, your eyeshadow soft and even etc etc. Under normal lights, you look like you fell into someone's birthday cake. Enough said.
I ended up swatching everything and placing my hand under the shelves white lighting to get an accurate colour which got tiring after a while. The white light was places behind the shelves where there is a small gap between the top and bottom shelves.
Edited 07/04: The MUA are unfriendly until you buy something. Seriously. Until you put something in your basket, will they give you a smile. Worst they hardly speak English.
In the end, I thank you Pepper for letting us know about the sale. :D
Mom's bday is coming soon and since JH's little brother was coming back from the UK for Spring break, I decided to get the Longchamp Le pliage bag for mom. It's much cheaper there. I can't afford to get it here in Malaysia or from Singapore where it's suppose to be even cheaper than Malaysia.
After thinking long and hard, I decide to eat grass and get one for myself too. I'm keeping the Le Pliage M in Navy for myself. Heeee~ I know this bag is definitely not for everyone but somehow I ended falling for it. Weird. So I got two bags from UK for the price of ONE in Malaysia.
Oh, I finally found you, you damned elusive, YOU!
I spotted the pan from far but as I went near, the sales person's boyfriend picked it up, insulted the pan, 'What is this for? Eggs? What good is this, how useless. .. bla bla'. I was too embarrassed to go pick it up so I pretended to browse around. Before I could reach it, another customer picked it up, insulted it, put it down and by then, I grabbed the pan, walked to cashier, paid and walked straight out. GAH!
Pancakes, you idiots! Pancakes! Imagine cute little Hello Kitty pancakes! Cooking eggs on it will barely bring out Hello Kitty's face but with pancakes you can see it's Hello Kitty! Morons.
Ah well, one man's junk is another man's treasure. :P
