So we had the party/ gathering which Diana organised - really admire her enthusiasm and energy. Thank you Diana!
And also big thanks to Sarah for giving all of us the makeup voucher, and organising the game segment. It was funny trying to count numbers and getting into groups. :p
There were so many of us, it was near impossible to get to talk to everybody. I wish I had been able to talk more to Roseanne, Jasmine, Maddy, Wirda...but some of us had to leave early, and there were so many conversations going on at the same time, we could barely finish one sentence before someone else asked another question, or start another topic.
I also met Chantana (everbluec) and Kas (cocomotion) for the first time today and it was like meeting old friends, even though Chantana was a little shy :) , and Kas was soooo funny with her stories, and she was asking us for opinions on the products, and we all went BUY BUY GET GET... soooo not helping her to stay focused... we raided the MAC counter, the Chanel counter, The Makeup Store... very busy swatching products and raving about colors etc.
The swap was definitely the highlight of the whole gathering. It turned out to be an amazing coincidence that both Chantana and I got each other's present. And she had already gotten me my own little present, and she won my giveaway, so we had 2 presents for each other!
This is the group picture we took outside Body Shop, and there were onlookers just gawking at us, cos there were perhaps 10+ cameras in the 'Q'!
This is a picture of Diana and I during the swap segment. She is sooo hilarious with her poses, and expressions as we each opened our present.
This is Wirda and I. I lurve her style, she totally rocks the tights and boots! And her cute bolt headband!
This is Amy and I, my fellow nail polish junkie!
This is Ediati and I, my game partner. We managed to get one answer correct, which was 'my family doesn't know I make YT videos and have a makeup blog' (answer is Maddy). And who could guess Sarah went to convent school for 10 years of her life?? :)
All in all, it was a great outing, and the time just flew by, before we knew it, it was time to split.... *more hugs and byes etc*
I went to the outing with a bag full of little pressies, but it is strange how I ended up with a fuller bag home.
Just to show what I picked up at the Body Shop sale, they had 1-for-1 on the cranberry scrub... so I got 2 ( = 4 tubes) of the cranberry scrub. This is the best time to stock up, and all my siblings lurve this scrub.
While we were invading the MAC counter, Joyce, Amy and myself wandered off, and I wanted to check out the Chanel loose powder ($72), but bought this nail polish instead. Have been looking for a color like this, but somehow I always ended up buying the too bright orange which I would only use on my toes. But this is a very coral color....can't wait to try it out.
And these are the pressies from Chantana. She got me the VOV (N5) blusher. Sara says this reminds her of NARS Exhibit A, and Maddy says this is the kind of red blusher (MAC's Frankly Scarlet) she is looking for. I did a quick swatch on the spot, and the color is pretty full on.
Then for the swap, she got the VOV eyeshadow - the packaging is exactly the same as the NYX palettes! The colors are all shimmery and vibrant... and in particular, the brown shade looks like MAC Tempting eyeshadow. There is also a Majolica Majorca automatic liner, the color is GD005, which is a gold liner. It stays put on my hand after I tried it... much like MAC's liquidblast liners. I like how you 'click' the pen and the product flows into the felt tip. Very very cool product, and something which I don't have in my collection.
And it was so sweet of Eka (Reyenal) to give each of us something. I got this nail polish! :) It was all wrapped up, and I thought it was a big candy or something.
Update: And I forgot to mention, I also got the $50 makeup voucher (not to buy makeup with. but Sarah would actually do your make up for an event at $50). Super generous of her, cos all of us got one voucher! Click here for her site.
Oh... I am sure the other bloggers will be raving abou today's outing too, and I can't wait to see your pictures and updates!
And if I got any of your names wrong, or anything, leave below in the comments. My apologies in advance.
Thanks for reading!
