What a new and innovative way of application.
I must try this out.
It is so difficult to select foundation from a drugstore.
Poor and yellow lighting, no sales person to relate to, I had a hard time finding the right shade.
I spent a good 20 mins swatching.
Ended up with N4 Beige.
The pan of foundation is just like any other ordinary cream foundation.
Instead of the usual flat sponge, this sponge comes in a roller.
I must say, the roller mechanism is pretty smooth.
And the sponge is ultra soft.
There are 11 colours to choose from.
The colours are awesome.
The 3 I picked up are Rhubarb, Watermelon and Champagne.
New Zealand is very popular for their natural, organic and mineral products.
The following products by Living Nature caught my attention.
Why not get a Balancing Day Lotion to go along as a complete set?
A Lipstick in Dusk would be nice.
And a Lip Pencil in Laughter to match.
From left to right I have V.I.P. 48660 (chunky glitter), Hype 48642 (neon creme) and Pink Lemonade 48667 (smooth glitter).
Yes, more LUSH from New Zealand.
I bought a few which I have not tried and not seen during my previous trips.
Only 6 items in total.
*Many places have discontinued this item but I managed to find it in New Zealand thus it is not stated on their website.
It’s time for Chanel.
I love the packaging and texture of Chanel’s Rouge Allure lipsticks.
My first was Passion 14, a bright red.
This time, I got Mythic 69 (L) and Instinctive 78 (R).
Love the pastel colour of their Le Vernis nail colour in Inattendu 503.
This is my second purchase of Chanel’s nail polish.
My first was either Lotus Rouge or Fantastic.
I can’t remember.
Got to try their new Rouge Coco.
Here, I have Cashmere 04.
When Rouge Allure Laque launched, I bought Santal 77 and Mandarin 79.
This time, it’s Coromandel 72.
Last from Chanel is Vitalumiere Eclat, a comfort radiance compact makeup with SPF 10.
I am a big fan of Chanel’s foundation.
So, I must try this.
It comes in a very sleek, velvet pouch like most powders do. It also comes with a brush for a lighter coverage.
A little of NARS.
Yes, this shade of blush is SHOCKING.
I know right?
When, how and where am I gonna use this?
It’s NARS Blush in Exhibit A, a bright red.
NARS love MECCA value set with a pouch and 3 amazing items.
A blush, lipgloss and a lipstick.
I finally have an ORGASM, after so long.
Can’t wait to use it.
Lipstick in Dolce Vita, dusty rose.
Lipgloss in Chihuahua, guava.
It comes in a set of 3 and this is available at most DFS outlets.
There are tiny and comes with a pop-up mirror.
The best thing is, I will most likely use these 3 beautiful shades.
The shades are (clockwise) Crystal Sun 308, Crystal Baby 301 and Crystal Pink 303.
This pretty much concludes my entire shopping spree during my trip to New Zealand.
A good mix of both old and new products to try.
