New EDM Haul

I made a mass-order from EDM along with Zixian and Rachel, mainly because my foundation supplies were running dangerously low. We got the super personal custom kit (12 full-size items) for 50 USD, with an added free sample kit (6 mini items). Luckily, at the time we ordered, there was a promotion going on in honour of the Presidential Elections, and we got 15% off the entire order, a full-size blush and eyeshadow, and a lip frosting.

So, for 92 SGD in total including direct shipping, we got this.

Can you say bargain?

The haul is sorted into piles – from left to right, Rachel, Zixian and Me.

This is my part of the haul.

“Make it Count” was the complimentary blusher that we got, and it is actually kinda shimmery in real life (the flash washes it out). In the Garden is a GORGEOUS eyeshadow that I regret not getting earlier though I had been eyeing it for some time. No, you are not seeing double, I got two jars of foundation in fear of running out again, and a couple of sample foundations in different shades.

Swatches of my eyeshadows coming soon!

The Token Bimbo Post

I claim to be a fashionista on my “About”, but so far I have yet to prove my bimbo-ness. I am really not the thick-spectacled, braces-wearing nerd you would imagine me to be by reading this blog. [Seriously! I am not!]

The sample make-up kit I ordered from Everydayminerals.com arrived. Yes, that’s right, I am a great minerals make-up aficionado. Ever since I switched in August, I can’t stand the thought of normal make-up touching my skin. Even when I lost my foundation [there was still 90% left!], I decided not to get a normal foundation as replacement. But I didn’t want to go back and buy from SkinStory, where they sell Alima cosmetics [located in Central, chinatown], because the range they have there is extremely limited [especially for my skin tone], and it is marginally more expensive. I didn’t want to settle for a non-suitable tone again, so I decided to give Everyday Minerals a try.

Their sample kit, consisting of 5 items which you can choose yourself, is absolutely free, which means you only pay for the shipping. Which, in my case was about 7 SGD. Not only that, the “sample” kits are pretty generous – I could probably make one foundation jar last at least one month. And they come in these absolutely cute, gorgeous little jars that even my sister liked.
