When I got there, a couple of the items from the latest collection were already out of stock. Luckily, the items that I had in mind were still available.
It was the only eyeshadow palette that actually caught my eye. Also, the texture of the Jewel Crystal Eyes range felt more creamy & smooth than the others. Pigmentation for the gold & silver appeared pretty intense too.
I got one of their regular mix blush compact in #07 Lovely Tulip.
I kinda went a tad crazy over their Jelly Lip Glosses. They were too pretty and yummy to resist. :P
- 03 Dolly Kiss
- 05 Frosted Cherry
- 14 Vanilla Pink
- 18 Sweet Ribbon
- Night Jewel
Popped by Chanel in hopes of trying one of their foundations.
The SA recommended me the Lift Lumiere because she said it was more suitable for dehydrated skin like mine.
Got it in 05 Faience, Intensity 0.5.
I think it might be a bit too fair for me though.
- Lillyland Pearlmatte Eye Shadow (NT$1150)
- Cremeblend Blush in So Sweet, So Easy (NT$720)
- Eye Brow Pencil in Spiked (NT$550)
- Lipglass in Glamour For All (NT$600)
Initially, I intended on getting just 2 Lip Gelees. But after swatching all of them, I was in love with all 4. The Boyfriend then suggested that I get all 4. :P
- Shift To Pink
- Resort Life
- Lush & Bright
The gift with purchase was a miserable tube of moisturiser.
- Modern Love Palette
- Essential Eye Palette
I have always loved Nars eyeshadows but they cost a bomb here in Singapore and in Sydney too. I always find it pretty hard to purchase any of the single & duo shadows. So, when I saw that the Nars counter at SOGO still had these palettes, I immediately grabbed them. They are a more economical way of enjoying Nars eyeshadows. :P
Oh, & I got a Nars mirror as my gift with purchase.
I am quite a Lunasol eyeshadow addict, so I couldn't resist (I can't seem to resist a lot of things eh? LOL!) and got 3 of the palettes.
- 02 Nature Green
- 03 Nature Brown
- 05 Nature Colorful
It is also cheaper to purchase Lunasol items in Taiwan. In Singapore, Lunasol eyeshadow palettes retails for about S$77.
- F-3 Green
To be honest, I have never been a huge fan of Esprique Precious eyeshadow palettes. They just never really worked well on my eyes. However, curiosity got the better of me. Hope these work better than the others. :) I also got a foundation powder to try & it came with a free tube of Dramatical Stay Base EX.
Finally, my Paul & Joe haul!
I happened to pass by the P&J counter on my way out of SOGO. I did not intend on purchasing P&J items in Taiwan because it actually cost more than in Singapore. However, they were having a mini event for the Disney Alice in Wonderland Collection and I thought, what the heck. LOL!
