Mini Haul: Luxasia Warehouse Sale 2011
Met up with HS, Jemay and her friend to go to the Luxasia sales at Taiseng Street! Just wanna share what I got:
The packaging is gorgeous. The metallic compact comes with intricate filigree details etched on the compact cover and opens and closes easily with a sturdy magnetic clasp.
Comes with 1 corrector and 1 concealer in a set. According to Guerlain, the yellow one is meant for dark circles whereas the nude beige one is meant for blemishes on the skin. However I feel that the nude beige one might work better on my undereye circles than the yellow one.
Lastly, I picked up a Lancaster Eye Makeup Remover for $15:
This time round the sales were pretty comprehensive in terms of perfumes and cosmetics especially Stila and Guerlain. Stila had plenty of lip glosses, makeup brushes (around $12-$29), single eyeshadows/blush etc. Guerlain and IPSA had a lot to offer unlike RMK. Prices were quite reasonable with the exception of the Guerlain eyeshadow palettes. However, the crowd was crazy with a lot of pushing and tugging (not unusual) but we also had to endure the heat (no aircon in the warehouse) as well as the nasty attitudes of the Luxasia people. We were chastised for sitting in a group while sorting our stuff, then also sternly reminded that we were not allowed to test the products when all we did was to open them up to check. I understand where they were coming from, but seriously, no need for such hostility.
Nonetheless, I had a great time with the girlies though and I am extremely excited about my purchases. Cannot wait to start playing with them especially the shadows 😉
