The Buy to End All Buys
Had to pop by the Benefit Friends and Family sale at Mariott today. Since I got the news from several sources, I thought it must be a sign that I should go! There was very little left for sale. I'm guessing it's because it's the 2nd day of the sale but I still manage to pick these up: Lust Duster in GoGo Girl and Snow Bunny (very shimmery! SG$25plus each), and Creaseless Cream Shadow/Liner in Stiletto (lovely deep plum at SG$18). I think they're quite cheap, normally selling at much more ... perhaps these are going to be discontinued ... Since I was in town, I stopped by Watson's Ngee Ann City to get more mascara and ended up receiving a makeup look from the SA with the BR788 palette. The eye makeup looked very dark and shimmery in person and I liked the colours but I wasn't comfortable with all the thick smudgy eyeliner on the top and bottom. I looked really stern! But I liked how my lashes curled up and the way she used a gold pencil to colour my inner eyes. So I purchased almost everything she used on my eyes: the BR788 palette (which I didn't get the other day), another of the limited christmas mascara that I love so much, the pencil and the Lash Bone mascara base. I didn't know about it, but there was a discount at Watsons for using my Amex card, and I received these freebies (and a pink umbrella too, that I didn't include in this photo) from the Watson's gifts with purchase (umbrella and cotton) and lucky draw promotion (1 draw for every SG$30 spent) that was going on this weekend. "Plush!", the pink box in the photo, is another collagen drink powder. I'm keen to try it! I'm so sold on the benefits of collagen drinks. Seems like it was one of the "better" lucky draw gifts, because the girl said, "WAH!" when my son helped me draw that one. Cool. There was a DJ at Watsons talking about the promotions and also about Majolica Majorca. He repeatedly said, "If you want to look like 15 to 30 years old, you should try Majolica Majorca!!" It made me feel rather silly for trying out MM stuff, like it's meant only for very young girls. And yet, is 30 really in the same category of young as 15?? It doesn't make sense, this age group he keeps mentioning. And he was so freaking loud! Is there no noise control in Singapore shopping centres?? Well, anyway, I'm thinking this ought to be my final purchases for now. I should start an austerity drive in December! And I want to leave my eyebrows to grow crazy, then go for an eyebrow shaping. © Copyright. All rights reserved.
