aka THE Birthday Haul. This is my first time I'm having my birthday as a beauty blogger, and the fact that I was spending it in Singapore did not help in keeping my wallet safe from the damage. Hello Sephora! Sasa! Watson's! ION Orchard and Takashimaya!
random fact: I used to gift myself with gadgets, then purses and now cosmetics. eeeep! As lurvey would say, "I wonder what's next?" should I say DIAMONDS and see if he would faint? hahaha! :P
first up, skincare from FANCL! Lovely Stellar swore by FANCL products for keeping her skin clear and healthy during one of her HK trips. I was curious, so I had to get me some FANCL to try!
2 bottles of Tense Up EX Collagen drinks as GWP, FANCL rest eye gel, light lotion, milky lotion, washing powder and the foaming ball. I also got a free lifetime membership card for spending a certain amount. I think it was for purchases amounting to S$100 and up.
from Paul and Joe, Takashimaya: I bought ONE finishing powder but I got a lot of gifts with my purchase! Mabuhay to filipino SA's! They are very generous. :) I hope I don't get them in trouble. :D
2 mini's of their famous cleansing milk, finishing powder in 01 Dune from the Sahara collection, the most attractive foundation sample and the pretty zip pouch!
from Korres, Ion Orchard: (first row) I got 3 body wash tubes (two for lurvey, one for me), 1 lip butter, 1 Quince body butter and their bestseller Guava body butter.
The rest of the items in the pic are samples and GWP.
from Watson's, Wisma Atria: Skin79 BB Creams!
I'm currently loving the pink label bb cream I got from HK so I got another one as backup!
hair stuff: Liese (pronounced as lee-zay) aka Prettia bubble hair colors!
They were having a promotion so I got these for S$17.90 (approx. US$13) each plus I got S$5 vouchers to spend on my next visit.
Lucido-L design pot, Liese hair cocktail
OMG the Liese hair cocktail works wonders in keeping my hair more manageable! Full review coming soon.
from Sephora Ion Orchard: Urban Decay 24/7 glide-on liners Duo in Zero and Bourbon and Boscia blotting linens which are so expensive. I thought... I should have bought the Paul & Joe Alice in Wonderland set instead. :\ Buyer's remorse is stressful! haha.
from the OPI boutique, Shoppes at the Marina Bay Sands: 3 bottles of overpriced Nail Lacquers, my only consolation is that the shades I picked out are not available locally :'( to :)
look! OPI candies! they're gone now. :D
That's it for now, I hope I didn't disappoint! There are still some small loose items which I will post in separate entries. Although shopping time was limited, I still managed to get almost everything on my list. I wanted to try Cle De Peau concealers but did not have the time to try some. Even if most of the items are priced higher than say, Hong Kong, I enjoyed shopping in Singapore because the SA's/BC's were very friendly, sweet and generous with samples and GWP's. They were very eager to answer my questions and weren't pushy at all which is a BIG factor for me.
To end this post, I would like to thank all the wonderful bloggers who sent me birthday greetings and wishes, and say hello to all the new readers/followers of ♡ coffretgorge, I appreciate the time you take in visiting my site. I will do my best to keep you interested with cheerful posts and lots of aesthetically pleasing pics.
