There were many boys and men waiting outside, thanks to the ‘no males allowed’ rule.
The crowd during Metro Ladies’ Night was testimony to the allure of the deals and steals offered on that day – 20% off storewide…and more. :D
Among the highlights of the evening were a Lancôme facial massage demonstration focusing on the Lancôme Rénergie Lift Volumetry range (gifts were given out to the crowd post-demo!), as well as a Tweezerman eyebrow shaping demonstration (Kas was the model) where the brow artist dispensed useful tips.

And here’s Sara, with Kas and me! Iris was also there but I didn’t get a photo with her on my cam. The store was packed and we had to brave the crowd to do our shopping. We eventually split up but sweet Sara was able to accompany me when I was shopping for new tops. :)
Of course, beauty was the main focus (the women at the event evidently thought so too – the beauty department was thronging with people!). In addition to a few pieces of apparel for my hubs and myself, I purchased:
- Chanel Glossimer in 132 Mirage
- Ettusais Bitaba Volume Mascara
- Kosé Esprique Precious Dress On Glossy Rouge in RD 482
- Shu Uemura Pressed Eye Shadow in ME 650 Metallic Denim Blue
- Tweezerman ProCurl Eyelash Curler
The crowd was still going strong near 11 pm, when the store was about to close. I paid for my purchases at the Men’s Wear department, which also had a queue, albeit a short one. Sara and I then went for a very late but much-welcomed dinner at the Mandarin Orchard Singapore, where we indulged in Chatterbox’s famous chicken rice (hers) and fried beef hor fun (mine). Pricey but worth every cent, considering the tastiness and generous portions, not to mention our aching bodies, post-shopping! It was great to be able to fling everything (and ourselves) on the comfy seats. :D
Metro will be having a one-day 20% storewide discount today too – a good time to grab beauty lemmings and do some early Christmas shopping! ;)
