Ebay Shopping No.2: Glitter and Shimmer Eyeshadows

12 Oct

Ebay Seller: edeal8

Date of Order and Payment: September 15

Date of Shipment: September 16

Date Received: October 11

I finally received this small ebay package yesterday. This was actually my first ebay purchase but it arrived really late. Well, I shouldn’t be complaining for I did not pay for shipping anyway. But I really panicked after the 2nd week of not receiving my order so I messaged the seller. She explained that packages from China really take long to arrive; she added that I have to inform them should I not receive it in 31-43 days! Whoa! That’s a looong time! I told the seller that I can wait. I really have no right to complain because it was shipped for free considering the price of the item. This is a pretty cheap purchase anyway 🙂

So what’s inside? Tadaaa!

It’s a dozen Lanmei glitter and shimmer eyeshadows I got here. Some sellers have a cheaper lot but they don’t ship to Thailand so I got these instead. I really have no expectations for this purchase because this is a first ebay purchase, so it’s more of a trial buy. I checked the reviews though and so far, these eyeshadows are fairly rated. The lot consisted of 6 glitter eyeshadows (or should I say, pure glitters) and 6 shimmer eyeshadows; both types are in powder form. The glitter ones are pure glitters and I will have no use for them, unless I go to costume parties, perform in a concert and the like, 😀

Here are the shimmer eyeshadows and their swatches (pls pardon the picture quality which do not give justice to the eyeshadows)…

I did not use an eye primer but I can tell, it’s really obvious too, that the shimmer eyeshadows are bright and pigmented. I haven’t tried them so I can’t say if they will last on my really oily face or not but I am satisfied with the shimmer eyeshadows. Oh, except for the white pot, it’s not a shimmer one, it just looks like flour haha 😛

Oh here’s a size comparizon of the Lanmei eyeshadow pot with my Lovely ME:EX and MAC eyeshadows.  Lanmei is the smallest of the three 🙂

small, smaller, smallest 🙂

I am satisfied with the quality of the eyeshadows even if I can only make use of the five out of the 12.  Maybe someday I can find a reason to use the glitter eye shadows, too.

By the way, the eyeshadows  colours are given out randomly, so you can’t tell what colour or what type you will get (one thing for sure is that you’ll get the glitter ones as they are labeled as such). This is a pretty inexpensive lot anyway, so it’s alright. The waiting time and opening-the-package-to-see-what-you-get is part of the surprise 🙂

Have you tried purchasing off ebay? What did you get?

Cheers!

Payday Shopping at CentralWorld

1 Oct

 

My blog is getting so much like a shopping blog :p I dunno why but my shopping sickness has kicked in and has been around for four months now. I promise this to be the last for the month though, as I am still waiting for my Gmarket and ebay purchases. I will be on shopping detox after this weekend. For real.

Anyway, I still decided to go out this afternoon because if I stayed home I will just be itching to buy something off Gmarket so I went to the mall so I can stretch my legs hehe. Actually, I was planning to go to Platinum Fashion Mall (This Bangkok mall is a treasure trove of goodies 🙂 It is a 5 or 6-storey shopping center where you can get clothes, shoes, bags, accessories, souvenirs, etc at wholesale prices. You have to allot at least half a day to scour every shop and find the best deals) instead of CentralWorld. Traffic was sooo bad that I had to get off the bus and took a cab to CentralWorld instead.

I checked out Aldo, next, Dorothy Perkins, Zara and UNIQLO. I just purchased three pairs of shoes in the past two months so no shoe purchase today. I found some nice dresses at Dorothy Perkins but I wanted to check out Forever 21 first. As I passed by B2S, a bookshop, I browsed the laptop bags quickly and found something that I like.

I got this green Case Logic bag not only because it was on sale but because I needed a bag for my portable DVD player. It will come in handy when I travel.

I went to Tony Moly afterwards. I found only the cheapest stuff because I have a lot of make up and my next Gmarket shopping will consist of Tony Moly products which are way cheaper than the prices here.

Tony Moly Mask Sheets & Nail Polishes

Tony Moly Mask Sheets & Nail Polishes

This is my first time to buy from Tony Moly Thailand. I only got 2 Green Tea Essential Mask Sheet Packs, Hyaluronic Acid Natural Pulp Essence Sheet Mask, Top Coat Nail Polish (TC01) and Glittery Yellow Nail Polish (PP02). I didn’t get any sample from this shop. I saw brochures (I think it was a Tony Moly product brochure) with Song Joong Ki on the cover which I wanted but it was not offered to me by the shop assistant so I didn’t ask for it anymore. I’ll just keep the plastic bag haha.

My next stop was The Face Shop. I really can’t resist coming in a Face Shop store; I think I buy from them 4 times a month. The products at The Face Shop may be a little pricey but they are well-adapted to my skin. I still have a lot of products so I just chose what I need for the moment. But, I really don’t need anything I think 😉

The Face Shop Emulsion, Masks & Blemish Patch

The Face Shop Emulsion, Masks & Blemish Patch

Oh! I’m having problems with my pimples on my chin and forehead now (boo!), so I chose products to address this need. I got a Quick & Clean Mild Emulsion, Kiwi Yoghurt Pack (Wash Off), and Clean Face White Intensive Blemish Clear Patch. Since I’m a Face Shop member and my purchase was quite a lot (I think) I wasn’t shy to ask for samples. I was given two mask sheets – Vita A Mask Sheet (Carrot and Avocado Extracts with skin firming) and Vita C Mask Sheet (Strawberry and Raspberry Extracts with skin tone brightening). I really don’t know why they don’t give away samples here.

I got a 20% discount with my mask and skincare purchase (I think they forgot to deduct a further 5% because I’m a member. I never check the receipt, that’s why). Oh, there was a table with products at 50% off. I didn’t find anything I like, though two of the nail polishes I bought yesterday were discounted that much at the CentralWorld branch. Tsk.

Despite not having eaten lunch and a-quite-sore feet, I still headed straight to Forever 21 to look for dresses that’s not too casual and not too serious which I can wear to work.

Forever 21 Dress, Pants & Make up Cleansing Tissues

I only got a purple dress, black pants and Purederm Make up Cleansing Tissues for my next clothes shopping will be at Gmarket ;). Forever 21 has still the promotion that THB1,600 purchase will enable you to get a free watch. I got a red one this time. I already had a purple watch from shopping there last September.

After a quick lunch at KFC, my last shopping stop was at Bershka. I found lovely and relatively inexpensive shoes (from THB1,800-2,900)  with chunky sky high heels and platforms. I really want them but I resisted the temptation. There’s always a next time 😉

I finished my shopping for the day with an anticipated Mass at Holy Redeemer Church.

Tomorrow’s schedule? I’m going to Browhaus at Siam Discovery. I have yet to check if I need to make an appointment or can just walk in.

How’s your weekend so far? Hope y’all have a good one! Cheers!

Holika Holika Haul

19 Sep
Holika Holika Products I am Using Now

These are the Holika Holika products I am using right now. I bought a lot of the products (with more products not included in the photo) because I want to become a member – all for the love of CN Blue. Anyway, a minimum purchase of THB2,500 entitles one of a membership. I don’t know what the perks are but I was given a Holika Holika umbrella, CN Blue plastic folder, make up kit, feather ballpen and a Bulgarian Rose travel set with my hefty purchase. The sales assistants didn’t want to give me a membership card, I had to ask them a number of times. I repeatedly told them that I live in Bangkok (perhaps, they don’t allow tourists a membership to the shop/brand?). Honestly, one of the sales assistants (I didn’t get her name) who works the till is not really friendly. She even scoffed at me at my substantial product haul which is really annoying. Hmph?! Sorry for the rant!

Anyway, Holika Holika products (the ones that I have and tried) are relatively harmless and do not have adverse effects on my skin. These products are also eye candy and packaged creatively, so if anything, the packaging is an attraction by itself. Oh, and also the price!
I will just introduce these products and give their prices; the reviews will follow soon 😉

Enamel Magic Liquid Eyeliner No. 01 Enamel Black (THB270)

Star Light Shimmering Pact (THB720)

Milky Veil Pore Cover BB (THB390)

Aqua Petit Jelly Blusher (THB390)

Aqua Muse Watery Lipstick OR205 (THB390)

HD Skinny Foundation (THB720)

Magic Pole Mascara 01 Power Volume (THB480)

Cheers!
P.S. Pardon my blurry pictures.

Blue Potato Chips

18 Sep

I got the Terra Blues Potato Chips from Tops Supermarket last week and have just gotten to open it this morning.

The thicker-than-your average chips, in terms of slices, are naturally flavoured so it tastes a little bit salty and bitter, bordering on bland; especially if you’re used to richly-flavoured chips.

The package says it doesn’t contain trans fat and that it has 40% less fat than your regular potato chips so munching on Terra Blues Potato Chips can be guilt-free 🙂

Cheers!
