Super excited, got home not long ago, and I am so glad to be able to finally settle in and do my leisurely stuff. Been on a mad rush in the last 48 hours, meeting deadlines, meetings, appointments, etc etc. But among the long list of stuff which I had to do, I am most excited about today afternoon's onsugar meet & greet session.
Firstly, I got myself LOST at the maze at the Raffles City basement. I somehow got the idea that Maddy, Joyce (forensia) & Amy (purplio) were already waiting at Guardian, but it didn't occur to me they are actually at the Citilink outlet. Silly of me. So I made my way in the sea of red t-shirts pple who were going to the NDP preview to look for them gosh.
The first 2 girls I spotted were Maddy and Joyce, because I already recognise them from their blogs. And it was also great to meet Amy in person, it was kind of cute how she was telling us her avatar is a capsule. The 3 of them look seriously fresh faced from home, cos I was just being totally unglam, sweating and just very 'rushed' and also a little nervous :) Then we were joined by Linn (spelling??) and then lastly Diana - the first thing I noticed is her pink/bronze eyeshadow, artfully blended! Heh.
So the first 'mission' we had to accomplish was to hit Stamford House to check out the Fre3b or something store, and also the MUFE store. The Fr3b store was crowded - there was a Q, and apparently you have to pay $28 to be a member before you are allowed into the store to browse and pick your samples. But why pay -- the name of the whole concept is fre3b? FREE?? Anyways... I wasn't very sure how the whole concept works... so I shall leave it to Diana, Joyce et al to explain further in their entries. But we all paid for our Watsons card..including myself.
* I didn't take much pictures of today's outing - was lugging my heavy bag all over and kind of too lazy to keep whipping out my camera -- but hands down to Diana who is really a pro at snapping covert paparazzi style pics. That was priceless. After a while I think I got a bit conscious and always look pose-ready, as Linn noticed while we were on the bus.
So...... anyway... since Fr3b was kind of a letdown, we went to MUFE. Bascially, we went around the store and swatched stuff, and talk about MU for about 20 min. The staff is prolly kind of pissed, cos we didn't look like we are going to buy anything and we were just in our own world chatting away. LOL.
Then.... we head to town, specifically ION.. and to be even more exact, Sephora. Haha.... there, we were joined by partialtopink (Grenda?) *** soooo sorrry if I got any of your names all wrong or mixed up. She turned up with this HUGE mac bag... and the second she said all the new collections were out at TANGS mac, we were like GO TO MAC -- OK, more like I went OK LET"S HEAD TO MAC NOW NOW... and suggested thta we JAYWALK across..haha... but no, we didnt, Linn, Diana and I walked so fast, by the time we were on the escalator, we realised that we lost the other half of the group. Within seconds we were swatching the new collections like mad. I quickly made up my mind about getting Style Snob & Fashion eyeshadows (starflash) and then after a little persuasion from the MUA, Russian Black liner. Thanks to my vouchers, I paid less than $20 for the stuff I got.
And anyway.... please, tell me your name, the gorgeous girl wearing the Club eyeshadow, for I really didn't catch your real name! It was kind of surreal meeting everyone in real life, I recall everyone by either their screen names, blog posts, comments etc etc but to match the faces, to the real names and all that, it is like getting to know a new class at the start of the year. :p So.... please tell me!!
** at this point, I am thinking in video terms I would be just yakking and you don't need to subject yourselves to actually reading this epic post***
Maybe I shall post a pic of the stuff I got today to break the chunk of text.
Yup.... so... after MAC, we went back to ION and continued our exploration. Then Linn had to leave, so we took a group picture. Again very amazed at how Diana is super quick and appointing a random guy to take our group picture. :)
Anyways...(I wonder if anyone is still reading) .. Joyce, Diana, Grinda(sp?) and I went to taka watsons, and we --- no, Diana FOUND!! the Revlon matte collection. We swatched the stuff, and Joyce got some eyeliners for her friend and herself. Then we all went to MOS burger to rest/drink/wait....we talked about YT gurus, hauling, etc etc...later on my sister came along, and shortly after we parted ways. It was just Joyce, my sis and myself, wandered to Tangs again, before we said our goodbyes.
All in all, like I mentioned, it was really surreal meeting everyone in real life -- all of you ladies are super sweet & gorgeous, and it is really nice (ok overused word I know) we are meeting up etc over our love for MU and getting to know about each other through Onsugar. And also how it felt like we have known each other for longer time, and how we can just rave about all the makeup stuff.. And also somewhat unnerving (in a good way) that everyone knew about each other's product rants and raves. Haha..I look forward to the next outing for sure! I have so much more to say... but I think the other ladies will also be 'reporting' about today from their point of view.
P/s I will be posting a updated entry on the MUFE foundation review/ramble, since I think some of you are wondering about it.:)
Pictures Time!! The only time I took out my cam.. so we were all busy snapping pictures on the bus, and for s.ome reason the bus decided to move whenever I want to take a picture and it turned out blurry
Linn & Diana
Joyce & Amy --- Maddy and I were sitting next to each other, and it was impossible to take a proper pic.
That's all, and if you are still reading, thumbs up to you for your amazing patience :)
