It's a gloomy day over here, as always. 🌧
Tried the new earl grey lavender latte they have at Starbucks but I think I'd be better off with my usual latte. Haha.
But hey, at least they didn't intentionally misspell my name. LOLOL. 🌚
Decisions, decisions. 💭
Extremely psyched about how our samples turned out. I would say that it's a considerable improvement when we get to approve 9 out of 10 samples, compared to the past when only half the samples made the cut. The efficiency in production is still not able to meet our expectations and I guess that's something we gotta work out with the factory this month.
Stuff we got from the Etude House here. 🙃🙃🙃 (Yes, WE. Not everything is my doing hahaha.)
We only actually bought three items out of this lot! The rest are free gifts. Lolol. Guess what we bought?
Yep. Another eyeshadow palette. 🌚
This is so handy for travels! And I love the shades. So warm and rosy. Two with sheen and two mattes!
This is palette #1 凋零蔷薇 lolol I've no idea what the English name is. The direct translation is 'wilting rose'. 🥀
Top left – 裸粉棕 (nude pink brown)
Top right – 焦糖褐 (caramel brown)
Bottom left – 肉桂粉 (cinnamon pink)
Bottom right – 绛红蔷薇 (dusty red rose..?)
Such a lovely mix of colours!
I did my best to translate the names of the shades. Haha. 😂
Didn't have time to swatch the colours but I tested them on @jongsy and they looked promising! 😍
I like that this didn't come with the useless little application thingy. I'd rather use my fingers.
What we actually walked into Etude House for.
Totally forgot to bring comb along and the tiny little comb provided by the hotel would def not work on my hair.
This comb cost $12 btw. But we had no choice cause we couldn't find any other shops selling combs. This one looked like it would do a really good job at detangling. And it did deliver! This worked even better than my Tangle Teezer. 👍🏻
There's a mirror at the back too, I like! Very handy dandy.
We didn't realise tho, that Etude House was giving away the same comb (but smaller) when your purchases hit a certain dollar amount. Which we did.
So we were kinda speechless when the sales assistant gave us another comb along with our purchases. She could have totally told us about the free comb right? Then we could have bought other stuff instead. FACE PALM MOMENT. 🤦🏼♀️🤦🏼♀️🤦🏼♀️
So we asked if we could swap this comb for another item, like maybe a lipstick or whatever. I didn't mind topping up.
But she said she couldn't do it for us cause the receipt was already issued.
She was pretty nice about it tho, and offered to give us some other free gifts instead of the same comb.
And so she swapped out the comb for these! 10 x hyaluronic acid sheet masks. Whee. I love anything hyaluronic acid!!
Have never tried Etude House masks before so we shall see.
She also threw in a free travel sized facial cleanser for us. I'm a sucker for travel sized items because I'm damn lazy to empty out my regular sized items into small bottles and containers. 😂 Good for stayovers and short trips!!
I'm not big on Etude House stuff but I gotta say that their packaging is really cute. Pastel and girly. 💕
We also got a mini face primer and concealer as free gifts. Damn generous I must say!
As for my DFS adventure yesterday… I got this!!
Wanted to get this on my kindle but I think it's too new and I couldn't locate it on the Amazon store yet. Saw it at Times and immediately grabbed it! Barely halfway through it so I shall not share my thoughts yet. Hoping to finish this by the time I touch down in SG on Sunday!
Obviously I couldn't miss out on the Cosmetics & Perfumes section… LOL. Despite the passport episode, I had ample time to mull over my purchases. 😂 See kids, this is why you should always leave for the airport early.
Got this set of 8 x travel sized #Origins masks for $76.30.
Was deciding between the full sized Origins mask in Rose Clay and Charcoal. Then I saw this! So happy that they have this set because I can try out 4 different types of masks and decide which one works best.
And then I was deciding if I should get this set or the Glam Glow which was $79. So many decisions to make. But it's 4 vs 1 and this is still cheaper so it won me over. Heh.
Kathleenlights made me buy this. 😂😂😂
Sho cute and mini. ☺️💕🙌🏻 Gonna use one of it tonight!! Which one should I use?
