HAUL: THE ONE WHERE I WAS A GOOD GIRL!


Aug28

Hello!

I scrambled to the LUXASIA SALE with actually 1 intent - to find the SERGE LUTENS fragrance I've been lemming for a loooooong time - NUIT DE CELLOPHANE.  Unfortunately, I got horribly lost along the way and could not find the LUXASIA Building - I kept going around in circles around Airport Rd, Paya Lebar Rd, Tai Seng Rd, Tai Seng Drive but just could not find Tai Seng Street. And in all that frenzy, I called Kimberly (Rainnydays) and practically whined about not being able to find the building! Tsk tsk tsk ... And when I found it eventually, I did the fastest parallel park in my life! Haha! By which time, I had half melted in the sun ... boo!

 

Anyways, I got there about 1 and A LOT of stuff was gone.  I had the cheek to ask the SA which were the SERGE LUTEN fragrances had been on sale and thankfully, she said NUIT DE CELLOPHANE had not been on sale (I hope not! Cos I will be sooo disappointed! :P)  So I looked around and found a couple of things I liked - 3 of which I've been tempted to buy many times but never made the plunge. 

 

So since I didn't randomly grab stuff just because they were on sale, I was technically a good girl.  An even "gooder" girl would have not gone for the sale and just stayed at home ... I'm content with being just good for now. :P

 


 


PENHALIGON's EDP in ELLENISIA - a gardenia, jasmine scent.  My type! I called Escentials at Tangs today to check - the 50ml fragrance I purchased at SGD$49 at the sale, usually retails at SGD$212! SCORE!!! I've always been wanting to try something from Penhaligon's, Annick Goutal, Creed (there's a lovely white flower fragrance!) and Serge Lutens but the high high price tag always makes me go, "Kas, another day lah".

 


GUERLAIN KISS KISS Lipstick in FLUSHY BEIGE.  The camera picked up the pink tones mostly but its actually a nudey, rosey-coral shade with a lot of gold glimmer.  Look at the case! Its soooo pretty! And at SGD$10 with an expiry that's a whole year more to go, Woooohoooo! SCORE #2!!!

 

 


STILA SMUDGE POT in COBALT CLUTCH.  This retailed at SGD$48 in the store - I know cos I have the one in LITTLE BLACK DRESS (black base with purple shimmer) *heart pain now*.  This was the electric blue used in the promo shots for one of Stila's recent collections (something Kitten ... there was a Black Cat Smudge Pot that never hit our stores - I remember Temptalia raving about it!).  Anyways, I was tempted to buy this in store at the point I picked up LITTLE BLACK DRESS but that's like SGD$96 for eyeliner! Happy to have snagged this at SGD$14 instead!

 

 


STILA LIP GLAZE in SUGAR LIPS.  Ok, this was a little of an impulse buy.  I saw the pink, I saw the shimmer, and I was like, "OK!".  I blame the heat.  But its very pretty and I don't really regret cos I do like Stila Lipglazes and it was SGD$12 :P

 

******************************************************************************

 

So seeing my small haul, you will admit I was a good girl, yes?  Did you go for the sale? What did you pick up (i.e. were you good too?!)

Oh! the guerlain is a GREAT buy! sigh, you were shopping so much faster than me, maybe that why you get to grab the stuff at the popular tables first....I got a stila gift set that comes with a quad, pomegranate cheek/lip stain, mascara, convertible colour (orchid) and mini all over shimmer for $20!!

My friend helped me to get Cobalt Clutch too, plus a ton of RMK stuff ;p and she said that she saw you coming out of the lift as she was about to go in. That was the same day that my hubby saw you in NUS!

I am a huge fan of Serge Lutens, L'Artisan, Annick Goutal, TDC, Diptyque,Penhaligons etc. Last sale, I hauled more than $3000 worth of perfume(the retail could worth be lots more). This year, I decided the only way to abstain is not go(tho it is near where I work, my HQ is just a few doors away). I also hear from the regulars whom I meet every sale that this yr aint as exciting. Well in fact last year SL had a huge increase in price already so boohoo!!! Love that Cobalt Clutch you got!!!

Great buys you have, mostly under $20 and the perfume is a steal at such a huge discount!

I agree with @redberried. The perfume is such a major steal! I love jasmine scents too. The Guerlain KissKiss lippie looks very pretty and for only $10! Awesome awesome haulage!

All: Apologies for not being able to reply earlier (to those who had queries on the stuff there) - was totally unable to respond given that I was rushing off

Vani: I only saw YSL lipliners though - all the same shade

Ming: LOL! Yah, I swear, usually I have to go in, reverse, come out, adjust ,,, adjust and adjust cos car backside will always be sticking out of the lot :P see what MU can do? It made my parallel parking better!

Joey: Ahem .. are you SURE you are the gooder girl? I've been reading some stuff about Lancome, Guerlain that somebody hauled .. and hauled a LOT of :P hee heee

Amy: Joey bluff you ... think you are the gooder one only. LOL!

Vion: Nooo .. I was there on the first day too! maybe OOS?

beadsandends: Really, but my haul is so tiny! Perhaps I came, saw, took and went on :P

Michelle: I behaved well, ONLY because I have other things up my sleeves lo :P

Iris: Sigh ... let's not go to the sad part of the story shall we?

Charlene: why never say hi? ANyways, I looked a mess in all that heat and the 5000 giant blower fans rumpling my hair left, right and centre

Farrah and Chocfull: I wil admit I DO like to go for such sales - the thrill of not knowing what's gonna be there? But I'm more sensible now - I REFRAIN frm (1) buying a whole bunch of stuff just because its on a huge discount and (2) don't buy stuff randomly, saying I'll give them as gifts later - if i buy gifts, I make sure I pick up specific gifts for specific pple

Christie and Claire: Yes! I was stunned at the Penhaligon's fragrance - in fact the Bluebell one was only $10 but the SA informed me the price discrepancy was because Bluebell was older stock. And the Kiss Kiss lippy is really pretty - I used it yesterday and like how it looks! It feels v v light and has a v distinct scent (but I can't put a finger on it tho)

I always pick up SL, AG, L'Artisan from Luxasia sale, everytime I go. I am huge on perfume. But if they don't work, off they go(resale v good on ebay). Bad that I know most of the scents & what works so I will stockpile. I am rotating 19 scents now.

Chocfull: 19! Woooohoo! I usually have about 5-6 on rotation cos I often wear scents according to mood.
