Shiseido Sale Haul

At today's media and VIP preview of the Shiseido private sale, there were extensive offerings from NARS, Ettusais, Cle de Peau, Benefiance, The Skincare, Ibuki, White Lucent and Maquillage. NARS had a wide selection of eyeshadow duos, Multiples, lipglosses, blushes, the Guy Bourdin collection (Holiday 2013), a couple of 6-eyeshadow palettes and blush palettes. NARS' black rubber packaging eventually disintegrates into a sticky disaster in Singapore's humid climate so their makeup was an easy pass for me.

Pretty much the entire NARS skincare range was on offer as well.

Several of Ettusais' product releases from 2013 up to Spring 2014 (the cream blushes and lipglosses).

Lots of foundation choices from Maquillage and Shiseido. Cle de Peau had their cream foundation ($75), silky cream foundation ($65), a watery liquid foundation in a pump bottle ($65), a compact cream foundation and a powder foundation. Their discontinued eyeshadow quads were going at $35 each while the Holiday 2013 Wintry Flower kit was $100.

Since I'm literally drowning in makeup, I purchased mostly skincare to gift to my mother, mother-in-law and aunt. The little one was just waiting to pounce on all the boxes.

Benefiance 1-2-3 skincare kit at $35 (usual price $84)

Ibuki skincare kit $20 (U.P. $40)

Ettusais White Dual Mask $25 (U.P. $49) and Peeling Sheet $10 (U.P. $18). Also picked up the Ettusais Homme Medicated Acne Body Wash ($15) for a friend with bacne issues.

Maquillage Essence Glamorous Rouge Neo $20 (U.P. $43)

NARS Gentle Cream Cleanser $25, Multi-Action Hydrating Toner $25 and Double Refining Exfoliator $30. Expiry dates are May and Jun 2017.

White Lucent Brightening Balancing Softener Enriched $40 (U.P. 79, expiry date Jan 2019), Ibuki Softening Concentrate $25 (expiry date Feb 2019) and Cleansing Massage Brush $15 (U.P. $35)

The sale is open to the public on Thursday and Friday of this week. If you don't mind the crowds, it's definitely worth going in view of the extensive selection of products with long expiry dates. Happy shopping and see you later, alligator!

hi Jacqueline,
I've been to the sale on the public days and it's still worth going 'cos of the great bargains on offer. The little one can be quite a screechy terror sometimes!

Hi Haru,

May I know how do you use the ettusais peeling sheet? Thanks

Haru said...

According to the instructions, the peeling sheet should be used right after cleansing the face. Just wipe all over two to three times and then follow with your toner and moisturiser.
