Love, Bonito Luncheon 2011 at Shuffle Bar

Though I can't say I was proud (more of horrified at my own spending ability), I was nonetheless pleased to be invited to the Love, Bonito Appreciation Luncheon on 10 December 2011at Shuffle Bar, for being one of their top 50 spenders for 2011 ^^;

I realise that I really bought a lot from their blogshop at the beginning of this year, but since I have really stopped buying as much from them now, I decided that I should throughly enjoy the lunch, given that I would definitely not be invited again next year. LOL

I have posted about their clothing before here.

I invited my friend, Denise, to come to the event with me (I am on the right)

As the VIPs of the day, we got to buy the latest pieces from their Christmas collection before they were released on sale for their blogshop. Of course, now, 2 weeks later, all the pieces have been released for sale already!

I love the Cassidy Corset (right). I got it in cream when the piece was released on blogshop. It was $30. Very good price for a corset!

We got name tags (hohoho) placed on the table. And a special menu for the day

All 3 of them are so skinny! No wonder the sizes for their clothing are all so mini -_-

At the same time lunch was served, the highlight of the day, a mini catwalk show started! The models all walked so fast that I couldn't really get a clear photo of any of them.

This is model Zianna, who started modeling for Love Bonito not too long ago. She is very pretty and very slim! 

This is model Constance. I don't really see her modeling for the blogshop anymore recently. She is MAJOR SKINNY.  She looked like a UK4 with a 22" waistline ^^;

I got 2 dresses on that day. Both of them super gorgeous, the COVET J'ourdain Maxi and COVET Safforie Dress. The former is simply stunning, while the latter is very suitable for Christmas, as the dress is all shimmery. Both of them are sold out already, but Love, Bonito is taking backorders for the two dresses till Monday 26 December 2011!

COVET J'ordain Maxi, $48

COVET Safforie Dress, $42

Etude House Welcome to Wonder Lip Land Lip Palette

I seldom buy lip palettes, because I have always felt that it's kinda unhygienic… but the Etude House Welcome to Wonder Lip Land palette is too awesome to miss!!

It retails for only $39 in Singapore, and has 18 colors. Even if the price is more expensive in Singapore as compared to Korea, I find it a good price still!

Paper packaging is kind of nice

The great thing about this palette is that the color you see in the palette is more or less the color you get when applied to lips. The pigment is good and colors are vibrant. The 12 shades on the left side of palette (smaller rectangles) are lipstick texture, colors more intense, quite matte, and less moisturising. The rest of the 6 shades (right side of palette, squares) feel more like lipgloss, 2 of which are shimmer lipgloss and more to sheer.

This palette is already sold out in most outlets in Singapore. According to a friend who asked the SA in the shop, she said that this is not a limited edition in Korea, but they always bring in this product to Singapore during the Christmas season. The palette is very popular, for the obvious reason :) Good quality and rather reasonable price!

If you are lucky, you might still be able to find one in the stores :)

NARUKO Narcissus Defense BB Sunscreen SPF50

First of all, many apologies to those who have been waiting for updates…
I promised a makeup tutorial… but I simply have no time to do it! Coming January, I would be rather free. I hope I will have time to do it then… sigh…

Anyway, recently I started using NARUKO's Narcissus Defense BB Sunscreen. I first noticed this brand after watching 女人我最大,a Taiwanese beauty variety show. NARUKO believes in delivering quality products at affordable prices. That explains why their packaging is rather simple, because the quality of their products lie within the bottle, not pretty packaging! LOL

I got the BB Sunscreen from Watson's. I think I got it at $25.90, which I think is quite reasonable!

SPF50, 30ml

The texture of the sunscreen is very light, totally not oily like a lot of other sunscreens with SPF50. 
I can't really tell how effective it is in blocking UV rays, but it definitely does not break me out, or make my skin oily. Since it is SPF50, I feel safe going out even when there's lots of sunlight.

There aren't much difference to the appearance of my skin before and after application in the photos below, but in real life my skin does look a little fairer and smoother after application.


I really like this sunscreen, not because it works wonders for my skin. In fact, I don't think my skin has improved after using it for 3 weeks, but I do like its light texture and affordable price tag! I will repurchase :)
