Robinsons Expo Sale Haul

Tempted by news of Lunasol quads going for S$35, I ventured to the Robinsons sale at the Expo today with my boyfriend in tow. My buddy, Mag from had already helped me pick up the Sheer Contrast Eyes #3 Green Coral and Noble Shade Eyes #4 and #5 palettes yesterday. It was quite a pleasant shopping experience as there weren't any crowds around the makeup stalls, which meant the SAs were relaxed and I could browse at ease.

After picking up some more Lunasol quads and a Coffret D'Or Combient Rouge as a CP for a friend, I stopped by the Givenchy counter where most items were going for 50% off. I was suprised to find the Phenomen'eyes mascara on sale at only $30 as it was launched in Singapore just a few months ago. In the end, I ended up hauling it, plus a few other items.

Although I already have a truckload of face highlighter/shimmer powders, the delicate lace design on the cover of the Prisme Libre #71 Sparkling Dentelle ($38) proved irresistible.

I also got these Prisme Again! blushes in #2 Loving Pink, #4 Charming Violet and #6 Red Passion ($20 each). They were only available in refill form, which I did not mind as I can easily insert them into another empty compact.

Lunasol nail polishes #26 Shining Pink and #28 Splash Green. Another steal at only $10 each!

At a flea market in Playground @ Big Splash in East Coast Park, I also picked up these cute little Belle Maison handphone accessories for $9.90 each. The pink cardboard and white lace is the packaging, and not part of the accessory.

WOW awesome haul!!
I am so jealous! Why do all the Singaporeans get the cool expo sales? Why not in Japan too!?? T_T I think the Givenchy palette design is also really cute, nice choice :)

Local Isetan called me about Lunasol's warehouse sale but I didn't go. I wanted to but I was so tied up with my house project those few days that I just had to forced that out of my mind. I never really had luck at sales.

i love your haul, though I probably wouldn't go for that blush quad as I had one before and hated it. But then again, people told me its formula's changed.

Hi Iris!
Wow, what a great haul! x_x
I'm recently totally devoted to Lunasol makeup. Would you maybe take some pictures of your Lunasol palettes? I'd love to see them, hehe... ;)

Btw, AhCapp from poupeegirl mentioned your blog!

Hey JacQlin,

So sorry to hear that you missed this! The Givenchy counter was right next to the Kanebo (Coffret D'Or/Lunasol) counter, in the middle of the hall near the entrance. For me, it was a very worthwhile trip and same for my boyfriend who bought 10 books @ $7 each at the MPH sale at the Expo.

Hi Beauty Snap,
I think beauty sales are an extreme rarity in Japan but I think if given a choice, most people would choose makeup shopping in Japan over Singapore due to the sheer variety of brands in Japan! I know I definitely miss it a lot!

Hey Jess,
Sure, I'll take pics after my friend has passed them to me later today :-) AhCapp is the friend that I CP'd the Lunasol and Coffret D'Or stuff for! Small world, isn't it?

Hey Jojoba,
I can never resist sales, and I always end up hauling a truckload of stuff. Makeup is so much more fun than house renovation stuff ;-p

Hi amynaree,
I'm a big fan of Lunasol's palettes too, use them at least once a week!
