  1. Swap and Haul

    Oct 2, 2009

    I met up with an MUA member whom I have been frequently corresponding over the last month, just yak about makeup and skincare. Ning was telling me how expensive mascaras were to her, as a student, and their lifespan is so short as well. Which I totally agreed because mine dries up extremely fast too, regardless how expensive or cheap they are. Therefore, I never say pass to sample mascaras from Lancome or Estee Lauder or Clinique, or any counters. Since I am always thick face to ask for samples, I have a few Hynose and DiorShow mascara samples, and decided to ask her to 'adopt' them, together with my old issues of Australian Bazaar magazines. I have already told her not to return me anything, but she is such a sweet gal to make it a swap!

    So now I'm a proud owner of a new Coffret D'or lip gloss and a AHA BHA cleanser! It is so difficult to get these Asian brands in Australia (Ning is from Singapore).

    Since I'm already in the CBD, I went to meet up with a dear friend who just came back from Japan. She ain't into skincare or makeup, but she knows I am soo into it. Tobbie gave me a lil parcel with Juju Aquamoist Essense (HG!) and Kose Hyaluronic Acid 22 sheet masks, direct from Japan!

    I just don't have the heart to just take from friends, so I return my appreciation with a lunch and $30 (Yen1808) for her. It is truly a great bargain haul for me, considering that JUJU is selling $50 and Kose Masks is selling $35 here! Why everthing is overprice in Australia? Even our Ikea Sweedish meatballs cost much more, comparing to what cushycottage mentioned in her blog! I guess I'm just so far away from everywhere >.<
    With Love, Elle
