Super Splurge: Birthday Bought

Basically, what I acquired that are not included in my Shameless Spoil posts - link.  A lot of these are procured in Sasa, because it is the drain I like to flush down my cash, sad.  A few of these were given to me by my family and friends, and some of these, I purchased doubles for a swap with my friend Sam in UK, as well as some back-ups for my make up kit.  Don't judge, I have no reason for buying so much, and I am determined to go on a no-buy starting November, until I finish several projects I have on hand.

I have in fact opened and started using quite a bit of these, and reviews, looks and swatches may follow.  Do drop me a comment or request if you're interested in particular products, or if you have colour combination or make up look ideas for me!  Would love to hear those!!!

  • Sasatinnie, Advance Moisture EX Aqua Booster 3-in-1 Scrub Mask - birthday gift for VIP.  Every year I get a little little treat from Sasa, but I pour down so much cash down their drain!?!? 
  • The Balm, Nude'tude Nude Eyeshadow Palette - finally on sale!  good news, I save quite a few bucks for the long wait.  bad news, The Balm is probably going to be discontinued in local Sasa stores.  Oops.
  • Elizabeth, Airtop 2 Way Eyelid/ Lash Glue
  • Koji, Eyelash Fix Strong Type - they emphasize it is 7ml on the packaging.  hmm...
  • Elisha Coy, Always Triple BB SPF 30 PA++ - for oily skin
  • Elisha Coy, Always Nuddy BB 24 - for dry skin
  • Sasatinnie, Dolly Perfect Shape Gel Eyeliner #01 Pearl Black
  • Elizabeth Arden, Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant - I have a pot of this, but as that is in a glass jar, it is not portable.  I want a tube of this in my handbag, hence I purchase a set of this with a travel size hand cream and face cream...
  • Elizabeth Arden, Eight Hour Cream Intensive Moisturizing Hand Treatment
  • Elizabeth Arden, Eight Hour Cream Intensive Daily Moisturizer for Face SPF 15 PA ++
  • Nuxe, Fondant Cleansing Gel Face and Eyes with Rose Petals

  • I am mad they don't have the concealer on display, as I wanted to give it a try again.  The previous one I got is too light.  But given that my problem with the concealer is it's too drying, perhaps I shouldn't even bother to think about re-trying?  Mind battle.

  • Maybelline, Baby Lips Color #Pink Lolita

  • Megaga Professional, 18 pieces brush set - just costs me USD $10.  about half of the brushes are decent, and the brush roll is good faux-leather that is easy to clean.  very very good buy!

Jusco Living Plaza/Daiso:
  • Ellefar, Silk Touch Foundation #20 Beige - I was wearing a light foundation that day, and forgot my contour powder.  So I went ahead and grabbed a few cheap ones from Daiso.  Turned out, pretty nice stuff!
  • Daiso, Mineral Foundation #Nudy, #Beige
  • Daiso, Mineral Foundation #Dark Natural *2 - originally planned to get Sam one of this, that's why I got two.  However, this 'dark natural' shade is only half a shade darker than my NC20 skin... 

  • L'Oreal, Lucent Magique Light-Infusing Foundation #N2 - as a L'Oreal VIP, I have 25% off the new Lucent Magique base make up line, so I went ahead and try this on my face and bought one.

Blog Sale:

From NYCmakeuplover1 - link to her blog.  This is my 2nd time participating at her blog sales.  I am pretty excited to finally getting my hands on an Ellis Faas product!  For your interest, I do disinfect all the used products after I receive them.  For powders, I spray them with alcohol and then wipe the top layers away with a tissue.  For lipsticks, I dip them in a cup of alcohol and then wipe down with a tissue.  Special items like the Ellis Faas, I dip the brush head into alcohol and then rub it, with gentle force, back and forth on a alcohol wipe - then put aside to air-dry.

  • Burberry Beauty, Sheer Foundation #02 Trench
  • ELF Studio, Blush #Pink Passion, #Mellow Mauve, #Peachy Keen, #Candid Coral - same order as the swatch above.
