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!

New Cosmetics Kit

After I tried the sample kit from Everyday Minerals, I ordered the Personal Custom Kit, priced at USD 32, plus make-up removal sheets. And because I ordered around New Year, I got one hell of a special promotion [they keep changing that every month or so] with my 6 items: 3 brushes and 2 eye-shadows, all free, plus 10% off on my total order. The total, plus shipping, came to SGD 70 – the shipping alone was about 20 bucks. But it was completely worth it – in Singapore, for 70 bucks, you can get maybe 2 or 3 jars of anything. Mineral make-up is actually cheaper than normal make-up.

I love the complimentary Gingerbread Man and Tinsel Time eyeshadows – the Gingerbread goes very well with the finishing powder, Natural Reflection which can double as a blusher or a bronzer, creating a tan surfer girl effect. It was too dark, even for me, to use as a finishing powder. So I guess I don’t really need to restock on my sample jar of Deep Wine blusher, which I had been using so far to create that effect.

I had gotten the Long Handled Kabuki as a foundation/blusher brush as part of the kit, and it was super-soft. The only problem seemed to be that it had a problem letting go off the minerals once it picked them up. The previous brush I used didn’t have that problem – so it might be necessary to cleanse it with water or alchohol regularly, or else there will be a build-up of powder. I can’t figure out how to use the Premium Fan Brush yet, and the brow-brush is useless to me at the moment.
