As you all know, I was in Singapore recently visiting relatives and friends over Chinese New Year and while I was there I decided to go on a massive beauty haul! Most of my items are from Watsons, a couple were from Sephora and the Innisfree shop in town. I kind of went nuts in Watsons (local drugstore) and had to pick and choose the items I really wanted cos I was afraid I’d exceed the baggage limit when I flew back.
And here they are, the beauty products that made it back with me to Perth!
Because I have quite a few items and I didn’t want this post to go on forever, I have split this into two posts. I also didn’t have close up photos for every item but there will be reviews on most of the items in due time so I will leave the close up photos till then :D
#1 CLIO Salon De Cara Roll Brush Cara – This series of mascara by CLIO is inspired by hair tools that style your hair and claims to be able to curl your lashes in the same way. There are 3 types of mascara in this Salon De Cara range: Hair Roll Cara, Roll Brush Cara and Finger Cara. I chose the Roll Brush Cara because I wanted volume and curl with my lashes.
#2 Sephora Collection Daily Brush Cleaner – I actually came across this while queuing up for the cashier and since I was looking for a brush cleaner I thought I’d give this a try. Gotta love the way Sephora lines up little products along the waiting line to further entice me to part with my money! ><
#3 My Beauty Diary Black Pearl Mask 10pc Set and Arbutin Whitening Mask 10pc Set – I first came across the Black Pearl Mask from Raine’s review of them and had in mind to order them online to try. Just as I was making my way to pay for my basket of items in Watsons, I saw a shelf of My Beauty Diary masks on a promotion – 2 boxes for S$25! Each box retails at S$16.90 so I didn’t waste any time grabbing two boxes for myself. I felt very pleased after that haha.
#4 Maybelline Eye Studio Fashion Eyebrow 24H Coloring Mascara in Dark Brown – I was looking for the Maybelline Brow Drama Eyebrow Mascara initially but couldn’t find it anywhere in Singapore and saw this everywhere instead, so I thought this must be the version marketed in Singapore. Everything about it seems to be similar to the Maybelline Brow Drama, it also has a sculpting ball brush for shaping my brows. I’ve got black hair so I got this in Dark Brown with hopes of achieving a natural look with my eyebrows. I will definitely give this a try soon and put up a review of it.
#5 Innisfree Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask – This is another highly raved item by Korean beauty fanatics and is said to contain 6020mg of Jeju Volcanic scoria and scoria capsules that gives a powerful pore cleansing and sebum control effect. Innisfree claims that it exfoliates dead skin cells and tightens pores, ensuring a clean, supple and healthy-looking skin. I’m looking forward to trying this too and see if it really does work.
#6 Sanrio characters Hand Sanitizers – Sorry guys, this is the most boring item in the basket. I just bought them because they were tiny and easy to carry around, plus they look so cute! Got them for only S$2.90 :D
#7 Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette – I’m sure this item needs no introduction, every one of you would have heard of this palette and some of you might even own one already! I know I’m late to the party but I was researching and comparing the other palettes I don’t already own and finally decided to go with the Naked Basics because the colours show up better on my Asian skin. I’m so excited to use this for an everyday office look and hopefully put up an MOTD with this palette!
Alright that’s 7 of 14 items for now, I will show you guys the other 7 items later on this week :)
