Estee Lauder, Anna Sui, Dior and Bourjois sightings

Estee Lauder is offering a very attractive GWP promotion from now until 23 January. With purchase of S$160, you get a cosmetic bag, a mini mascara and your choice of a serum, moisturiser, cheek and eye palette, lipstick and lipgloss. The cheek and eye palette contains 8 powder eyeshadows, one powder blush and a brush. You can get receive a matching tote if you spend S$200 and an additional lip palette with 7 shades if you spend S$250.

The GWP promotion is available at all Estee Lauder counters. The shades look universally flattering and easy to wear.

I was looking forward to checking out the Anna Sui spring makeup collection but it has not arrived yet. This is the current gift with purchase of S$180 at the Isetan Scotts counter.

As usual, Dior is the earliest to release its spring makeup collection, which is already on display at Takashimaya and Robinsons. Chanel is usually quite early too but its spring collection is not out yet. The Dior quint #034 Gris Gris is S$90 while the Cannage Palettes (with four powder eyeshadows) are S$94. The top row in the pic below is #034 Gris Gris while the bottom row is the grey-theme Cannage Palette (except for the shade that is second from the right in the bottom row). The eyeshadows in the Cannage Palette appear to have a more uniform and velvety texture than the quint.

At Robinsons in Centrepoint, the newly reformulated Bourjois Little Round Pot Eyeshadows are now available. These are retailing at S$19 each and you can get them at 20% discount now at Robinsons which is having a 20% discount on toiletries and healthcare products. The eyeshadows are supposed to have a silkier finish, contain up to 80% mineral pigments and are free of parabens and fragrance. There is a lovely blackened green shade in the collection (fifth from the left in the top row). These swatched much more smoothly over a primer whereas on bare skin, they came off a bit patchy. You can also view the shades on the Bourjois UK website.

The new Bio Detox foundation.

Time to start saving up? :-)

Estee Lauder's Advanced Night Repair is a good serum that gets many positive reviews. So does their Double Wear foundation. Personally, I haven't been using Estee Lauder except for their Blue Dahlia eyeshadow palette, which I like a lot. I think their lip products are also well worth checking out.

The piggy bank = cute!

I really like how the Bourjois looks over a primer. On its own - meh.
