Here's the latest Shu Uemura e-newsletter featuring their new Depsea Hydrability range.
The Kiss website has been updated with the first part of its spring collection. It's a tiny one with just a strawberry chocolate-scented Lip Chocolat Treatment and a Pure Bloom Cheeks C blush. Both are limited edition and will be launched on 19 January in Japan. The second part of the collection will follow on 24 February with two new Eye Prism Gradation Palettes, Pure Bloom Cheeks #6 and three nail polishes.
The new Kiss spokesmodel is Liv, a Chinese-Italian model who has appeared in Sweet, Biteki and Voce magazines.
The Lunasol website has been updated with the new spring collection including the Nature Color Eyes palettes.
Here's the list of Majolica Majorca items excluded from the 20% discount at the Watsons store in Ion Orchard.
Sephora is having a post-Christmas sale at its two stores in Singapore!
There are a number of products from Too Faced (lipsticks, lipglosses, eyeshadows) and Pop Beauty (face primer, Bronze/Glow Belle, Eye Trios) that are buy-one-get-one-free. Bare Minerals has some items that are buy-2nd-at-50%-off while Fred Farrugia has buy-2-get-3rd-free. Sakura skincare products are all on buy-one-get-one-free. There is no sale on Benefit, Make Up For Ever, Smashbox, By Terry, Hourglass, Estee Lauder, Dior, MAC, Clarins, Biotherm.
The Pop Beauty Cabinet (in green) is S$65 originally and it's also buy-one-get-one-free.
Too Faced Eyeshadows and lipsticks.
I picked up Mario Badescu Seaweed Cleansing Soap (buy one get one free @ S$48), Bliss Lemon+Sage Shower Gel and Blood Orange + White Pepper Shower Gel (2 for S$30), Pop Bronze Belle and Glow Belle (buy one get one free @ S$45) and four Too Faced lipsticks in Cougar, Totally Nude, Living in Sin and Drop Dead Red (buy one get one free @ S$34).
From left to right: Totally Nude, Living in Sin, Cougar and Drop Dead Red. Living in Sin is a lovely glossy sheer lilac pink that s already out of stock at the Ion store but there are several left at the Ngee Ann City Store.
Don't forget to also sign up for the Sephora Rewards programme which gives you a S$40 voucher for every S$240 that you spend (the points can be accumulated over a few purchases but only until 31 March 2010). The voucher can only be used on a select number of brands but it's still better than nothing!
The Paul & Joe website has been updated with the Wild Flowers spring collection! Only the Collection Sparkles are available to view now.
I'm hoping that there will be some lovely GWP items like tote bags or makeup pouches with the prints from this collection, all of which are quite cute. If you like the purple and gold print from the holiday collection, there is a new GWP travel case with this print at the Bugis Junction BHG counter. You can also download the new wallpapers here!
Did my nails with Jill Stuart Nail Lacquer N #106 Romantic Macaron from the Christmas coffret. This is the first time that I've tried the Nail Lacquer N formula and I have to say that I'm impressed! These pics were taken after 1 week of wear and there was no chipping or fading. The pearlesent pale pink polish applies smoothly without streaking or clumping and two coats are enough to bring out the color beautifully.
The Anna Sui website has been updated with the Gimme Fever collection.
The new Lip Rouge V (for "vivid) includes a black lipstick (#60). Wonder if this is a true pigmented black or a sheer black like those by MAC?
Check out Biteki.com for pics of the Majolica Majorca & Maquillage spring collections. Majolica Majorca is introducing a new Lash Enamel Glamour Volume On mascara (1260yen) and Lash Bone Black Fibre In (mascara primer, 1260yen). The new Lash Enamel Glamour Volume On features the broadest mascara wand ever made by Shiseido and supposedly adds a lot of volume and length. The two new eyeshadow quads look too pale and boring though.
The Body Shop's post-Xmas sale is now on! Check out the full list of promotions taking place from now till 10 January here!
Sasa is currently having a 5% storewide discount until 3 January. There is also 10-20% discount on select brands, such as Clarins which is on 20% discount. If you are a UOB cardmember, you can also get a 3% rebate.
Since it is quite rare for Sasa to give storewide discounts, I took the opportunity to haul some theBalm items that I had been lemming ever since Sasa started stocking theBalm a few months ago. I got the BalmShelter tinted moisturiser in Light (S$39.90), Cabana Boy blush (S$30.90) and Shady Lady eyeshadow in Jealous Jordana (S$24.90).
Jealous Jordana is a gorgeous, incredibly pigmented shimmery dark emerald shade that is similar to MAC Humid. The product weight is 3.4g, which is twice that of MAC (1.5g).
Cabana Boy is a medium rosy pink blush with a lovely pearl sheen. Again, you get a very generous 8.5g/0.3oz of product, compared to 0.16oz for NARS blush and for 6g/0.21oz for MAC Powder Blush. The cardboard packaging and artwork reminds me a bit of Benefit but while the Cabana Boy does not come with its own brush, it does have a mirror under the lid.
Sasa also has a loyalty programme whereby if you accumulate 10 chops (each $60 purchase gets you one chop) within 6 months, you can become a VIP member and enjoy 5% discount.
Check out Biteki.com for pics of the Shiseido and Anna Sui spring collections!
