Among the things I had purchased, Gino McCray Eyeshadow in 03 Deep Sky Blue made the deepest impression on me. It is a teal that beats all other teals flat. It may look somewhat ordinary in the pan but once swiped, wow – it flashes a stunning green that almost looks foiled.
This intense teal with reflective emerald tones is certainly on par with MAC’s iconic Parrot eyeshadow!
When I saw the beautiful baked goodness of Laura Mercier Colour Shimmer Bloc in Orchid Mosaic, I was taken by its velvety texture and cool tones. The lighter shades are so pretty – they remind me of the different hues one sees in the gossamer strands of candy floss.
Although Red Earth is available in Singapore, Red Earth Illusion Lights Beauty Pro Eyeshadow in Green Paradise was on sale at Central Chidlom, the departmental store from which I’d bought it. On top of that, the usual 5% discount that is offered to tourists at most Bangkok departmental stores was applicable on the brand.
This eyeshadow in the ‘brilliant pearl’ formula isn’t an exceptional shadow, honestly. However, its muted spring green shade makes it an easy wear-and-go lid colour.
I also bought the Suqqu Eyelash Curler, which cups the lashes on my Asian eyes well, creating a lovely curl; as well as Suqqu Eye Lucent EX01, a pigment a friend describes as crushed rainbows (needless to say, I succumbed immediately).
These are simply morsels in the beauty buffet that Bangkok offers. For more information on beauty delectables available in the Thai capital, look out for my Makeup Shopping in Bangkok series! ;)
