Mail Arrived: Tao's Blog Sale #4 and Nails Inc.

This arrived around early January, but I didn't have time to picture, edit and upload hence here it is.  Just a brief go through of the products.  Request below if you want more details! ;)

Basically, I participated in Tao's last big blog sale when she cleared out her stash a bit.  Picked up some really good stuff, most which I cannot obtain locally.  I will go through those things first, and then explain why there are 2 exact sets of Nails Inc at the end of this post.

  • Clinique Superbalm Moisturizing Gloss, #03 Mango
  • Rimmel Lasing Finish 25hour Foundation, #102 Warm Ivory
  • Prestige My Blackest Lashes
  • Prestige My Biggest Lashes
  • Prestige My Longest Lashes
  • Laura Mercier Face Tint, Apricot
  • Prestige Total Intensity Eyeliner, #Daring Green, #Bold Brown, #Deepest Black

  • MAC Pigment, Copper Sparkle
  • MAC Pigment, Pinked Mauve
  • MAC Pigment, Softwash Grey
  • Nars Single Eyeshadow, #Mekong
  • Rimmel Lash Accelerator Mascara
Basically all of the above are self-explanatory, I am a loser (sucker) for brown eyeshadow, colourful pigments, mascara and eyeliners.  I managed to miss out the picture of the Rimmel Lash Accelerator Mascara, but here is a pic of its ingredients list:

  • Kiehl's Amino Acid Conditioner (samples*2)
  • Prestige Soft Blend Khol Eyeliner, #Shiraz
  • Girlactik Beauty Star Blush, #Naples
  • Benefit Face Color, #love n mirage
As always, Tao was very generous and throw in a bunch of surprises to let me play with.  The Kiehl's conditioner are really good - go read my review here.  The Benefit blush sadly broke in the package but I saved most of it - now resting in a clear case as shown in the pic.  

nails inc Sweet Feet Collection:
  • Blandford Street Nail Polish Colour 10ml: tomato red nail polish
  • Lancaster Gate Nail Polish Colour 10ml: iridescent neon pink
  • Duke of York Place Nail Polish Colour 10ml: two tone indigo metallic shimmer
  • Mexican Lime Heel Balm 75ml: an intensive treatment to moisturise and soften crackle, dry heels. Enriched with Mexican lime and cucumber extract to help soothe and refresh feet.
  • Eaton Dry Skin Exfoliator 75ml: use this luxurious exfoliator to soften and condition rough, dry tootsies. Contains sugar crystals to smooth away dry skin. 
  • Toe separators (sorry I forgot to pictured those damaged separators) 
Now a brief explanation on the Nails Inc story.  Basically, I ordered 1 set of this Nails Inc set together with my last order - read it here.  But the pink scrub ("Eaton Dry Skin Exfoliator": mixture of oil and sugar) leaked.  All of the oil came out and ruined the box and everything else inside.  I contacted the customer service and they kindly offer a replacement; only did I find out the pink scrub leaked again.  So I give up email-ing the retail company, because it is definitely Nails Inc's design issue that makes the oil leak from its container.  :S  I guess not every (online) purchase totally satisfies us women, right?

Cheers :D


  1. It's okay. I'm a sucker for brown shadow too. I like earthy colors. These are great products. Glad you liked Rimmel.

    1. Thanks for the 'comforting' (I guess) about buying too many brown eyeshadows - I have realised golds and browns work really nice on me (also pinks and purples)... Not so much grey and blacks... Still, I get too many :S Yes - I'm glad I get myself some Rimmel - they make really good affordable 'drugstore' makeup!

  2. Fab haul! Such a shame about the Nails Inc leaking though :-( x
