July-August Picked Ups! (Essence, Bioderma, Forever 21, Jewellery, Daiso)


Here are the products that I have picked up in the month of July and August (so far :D). I may have gone a bit crazy...but it happens to everyone, right?

I'm going to start with Essence:

This is the Maximum Definition Volume Mascara in Black (8mL for  S$6.00). There is a wide range of mascaras on offer but this one drew me in because a) it's bright orange b) it has rubber bristles and c) because it has a flexible brush.

I've never had a mascara which was any of those things, so I decided to try it out. I got it in black because that was the only option.

Souffle Touch Blush in 030 Cold Wildberry (8mL for $6.10). This was the most nude shade out of the two that were in the display, I was surprised by the texture because the tester was all crusty and dried up. Also it has a really nice scent, fresh and minty but fruity. Yum! I'm excited to try this out.

Quattro Eyeshadow in 09 denim 4.0 (5g for S$6.50) This quad just stood out to me, especially the black. As soon as I saw it, I grabbed it.

 Single Eyeshadow in 30 happy hour - metallic effect (2.5g for S$3.50)

 Single Eyeshadow in 54 yes eye can! - shimmer effect (2.5g for S$3.50)

Single Eyeshadow in 60 kermit says hello - shimmer effect (2.5g for S$3.50)

Awwww kermit!

This two sized sharpener was only S$2.20!

Stay All Day Long Lasting Eyeshadow in 06 Rock Chic (5.5g for S$6.00). This is so pretty it's a bluey-black with blue and silver glitter.

This is actually a repurchase and I haven't even finished my other one! This is the lipstick in 53 All About Cupcake (4g for S$4.30) This was my first lipstick I ever brought from Essence, and I loved it so much I didn't want to ever be without it! It's perfect for everyday.

 Colour to go quick drying nail polish in (L-R): 48 MEET ME NOW!, 72 Time for Romance, 76 Hard to Resist and 96 Sparkling Water Lily)

Nail Colour 3 in 01 Midnight Date. (L-R): Midnight Date, City that never sleeps. (2x4mL for S$6.10)

Lip liner in 07 Cute Pink (1g for $2.20)

Long lasting Eye Pencil in (L-R): 02 Hot Chocolate, 12 I have a green, 14 Think Khaki, 16 Coolest Chic (0.28g for S$4.30)

I have heard great things about these so I'm excited to test them out.

If you spent more than S$10 on Essence you got this free gift, which consists of a Duo Eyeshadow in 13 Rocking Diva (3.5g) and a XXXL shine lip gloss in 12 Soulmate (5mL). You also got a little book with all the available colours in each product range.

I popped into Guardian (a pharmacy/drugstore in Singapore) because I saw in a magazine they were selling the famous Bioderma Sensibio H20 makeup remover. I picked up the 100mL for S$15.90

Review coming up!

I also picked up some jewellery:

The top three are earrings from a stall in Northpoint Mall @ S$5 each.
The front two are from Forever 21 @ S$5 each.

These polishes were from the S$2 shop, Daiso. These look amazing over black!

Also from Daiso is this silver glitter with holographic glitters in it. Good for layering.

I had been looking for a pastel yellow polish for a while, and my mum picked this up for me from 7-Eleven for S$2.90 for 15mL!

Lastly, I got these polishes from Watson's, and they are Disney themed, awesomeeee!

These were 12mL for S$2.90.

That is what I've picked up recently, swatches and reviews will be coming up after I've tried these products out.
