With the USD down and good rates on Adambeauty and Strawberrynet, I couldn't help but click on
This is the first time I've ordered from either and I had a good purchase experience. Shipping was moderately fast. I thought it could've been faster, considering HK is so near SG but I concede that they must be doing up orders. Surely there are many more people like me who order from them? :P Everything arrived well packed and in tip top condition.
Lovelies, of course!
Funnily enough, I ordered a lot of Shiseido. It was unintentional for the tools - I was innocently browsing Adambeauty when I saw the tweezers and the mini curler. I did a bit of research on a Japanese review site
and found somewhat good reviews, so I ordered them.
The green Integrate pencil was something that I'd wanted in the past but had forgotten about. When I read this blog
, I was sold. I think some of you would understand; just look at that beautiful shade and the waterproof quality!
The white T'estimo shadow is a backup. I don't normally buy backups of such shades but I use this all the time! This e/s is sheer without being useless and blends out colour beautifully, imparting pretty glimmer. Considering that T'estimo has been discontinued and the fact that Adambeauty has it for a great price, I couldn't resist.
The Stila was a freebie from Strawberrynet...on top of the 5% off on 3 items (or more) and a great price on the Shiseido Hydro Powder shadows. These go for S$39 (appalling!) at the counters but I only paid slightly under $30 for each one in this online order! Factor in the lipliner and it's a more amazing deal!
I LOVE the shades, texture and colour payoff of these cream shadows, not to mention their waterproof quality. I'm really chuffed that I now own them and I cannot wait to use them!
Together with the green one that a good friend gave me from her beauty ed friend (*waves*), I now own four very pretty colours:
