Gransenbon in Singapore at last!

November 24, 2008
By

I went to Watsons at Ngee Ann City yesterday to take a look at – okay, who am I kidding? – TO BUY the much awaited Gransenbon blushes!

Tucked away in an unobtrusive area, the Gransenbon display stand was hard to find, to say the least. Although it is a few steps away from the Majolica Marjorca counter, the simple cardboard display stand faces the drugstore brands along the wall and not outwards, hence the difficulty in locating it. You could easily miss it.

However, look for the Canmake and MJ counters and you ought to find it more easily. Gransenbon shares a counter with and is adjacent to the K-Palette 1 Day Tattoo waterproof eyeliners (now available in a limited edition pink!).

No one was at the display at all (I attribute this to its not-immediately-obvious position). After a leisurely examination of the blushes, I picked the ones I wanted, including the last two Cherry Fromages. I am certain that Watsons will replenish the stand, so fret not. :)

Here are swatches of the blushes available at Watsons so far.

At S$29.90, they are almost the same price as in Japan, as a result of the rising Japanese Yen. Thanks to Iris’s heads up regarding Watsons’s latest promotion (a S$5 voucher given with every S$50 spent using NETS, valid for a year and can be combined in usage), I managed to offset the cost of these blush lovelies!

    Congratulations! You finally got Gansenbon…You are so lucky!

    I have to say that the blushes look delicious, especially 11 sugar marmelade and 12 peach rose.

    Hi Birkinbeauty!

    Thanks for coming by! :)

    I know – they are beautiful. I wish they’d brought in 10 though but this was LE from last year. It’s a beautiful cream shot through with pink shimmer; a lovely highlighter shade!

      Hi Sugarcrumb,

      Yes. You can find it at Watsons outlets across the island. :) They’re usually displayed with the Japanese beauty products.

    I can’t find it when I went to the Watsons @ Ngee Ann City the other day. Wondered if I missed out the area :(

      Hi Engz,

      Look for it in the Japanese makeup section. I think it’s near the MJ counter, unless they’ve changed the display.
