A Bugis Junction Haul

June 1, 2009
By

A short jaunt at Bugis Junction saw me poorer but happier.
I had some time to spare so I popped into the mall for a quick browse.

A stop at Sasa had me purchasing a Red Earth Summer Splash kit. Originally priced at S$38, this was on offer at S$15. Consisting of a mineral eyeshadow primer that reminds me of the brand’s Eye Wonder (also an eye primer), two cream eyeshadows and a pigment housed in a gold faux croc-skin case, this set is undoubtedly value-for-money.


I headed to BHG next and to my delight, saw that Kate Diamond Cut Eyes (S$27) had finally arrived in Singapore. I merrily swatched away and
finally decided on BR-1, BL-1 and GN-1. Smooth and pigmented, some of the shades blend well and pop unusually.

I also bought Select Eye Colors in Black Selection (S$29), a sturdy neutral/smokey eye palette and Gel Eye Shadow in GY-1 (S$14.50), a pewter shot through with multi-coloured shimmer that dries to a sparkly film.

All these Kate items came with a somewhat generous Kanebo gift-with-purchase comprising a pewter-coloured tote, a Blanchir skincare set and a hair band to hold up hair during face washes (I prefer my Dariya hair sheets though).

I then wandered over to the Pupa display and saw the Smoky Eyes Kits (S$29.90). Taken by their versatility and pigmentation, I snapped both up in a flash.

Last but not least, I grabbed a special palette from Fasio for a special someone.

A happy hefty haul, this bout of retail therapy thrilled me to bits! More details on some of these lovelies later. ;)

    Hey Jojoba,

    Get them! I know they’d look fantastic on your eyes. Do the words ‘limited edition’ not strike you with panic, even a little? LOL! ;)

    Kate is at BHG. I may go down & take a look. My office is also near to a SaSa store. Probably will check it out during lunch time. Thx for the updates.

    Woah! We have the new Diamond Cut Eyes? Its not overly marked-up though. I bought it about S$20 after conversion from HK.

    You make me regret not getting the GN-1! That was the first piece I grabbed but ended up putting it back and getting the other 2 you bought.

    Oh, the gel shadow is very reasonably priced too! I can see our Kate selection expanding! hehe

    Me likey the Pupa lah! Must go down one day and see see!

    Swatch and EOTD pleaseeeeeeeeeee!

    Kimmy! :)

    Yep, they're in and quite reasonably priced too, I thought. I contemplated having them CPed in Japan but I figured the good gwp evened things out…plus I HAD to have them then and there, hee! This compulsion is sad, I know. :P

    Get the GN-1 and the Pupa! We'll play together and create EOTDs! ;)
