Yes, my sister-in-law has returned from the States! 

Firstly, one of the most awesome things I have ever come across that I got off Amazon:


Why is this so awesome? Firstly, it's no-knead bread. Secondly, you can make the master recipe and leave it in your fridge for a week which will allow you to bake off fresh bread as you move through the week. Do not argue with the brilliance of this! Further, the dough also makes pizza dough, etc. So it's very multi-purpose. Now I just need to get a pizza stone. I am going in search during the week. I'm pretty sure Cook! in Bangsar sells them. I'll try to refrain from getting the pizza spade though. That might be a bit much.

Now for the makeup! She put everything into her case and left it in my room. It is so deceptive.

Too much excitement in this one bag!


[L'Oreal Infallible Eyeshadows in Amber Rush & Bronzed Taupe]

Now for the stuff from the pharmacy/drugstore:

These were off Amazon as well and are meant to be amazing. Can't wait to try them on!


[Phillips' Milk of Magnesia]

Before anyone asks why I am ordering laxatives from the US and then putting it up here, let me clarify that this is for my face. This has been hailed as a miracle product for helping with oily skin both as a mask and as a primer. Unfortunately, I had no luck whatsoever finding it here, so this had to be done!


[Burt's Bees' Tinted Lip Balms in Blush Orchid, Pink Blossom & Hibiscus]


Look how huge the packaging is! It's crazy! But pretty nonetheless! 


[Physician's Formula's Organic Wear Jumbo Lash Mascara]

I've heard really fantastic things about this so it couldn't be avoided! 

And from MAC:


[MAC's Lipstick in Creme Cup and Lipglass in Nymphette]

MAC is undoubtedly much cheaper there so this was a must-do! 


[MAC's Creme Cup]


[MAC's Nymphette]


[Top: Creme Cup/Creme Cup + Nymphette; Bottom: Nymphette]

Love, love, love both of these! Even more so together!

You know there had to be some Sephora in here, don't you?


[Sephora!]


[Tarte's Amazonian Clay BB Cream ($32)]

Cannot wait to test this out! Review will be out during the week!


[Dior's Precision Eyeliner in Black ($34)]

When the makeup artist used this on me during the Dior makeover, I was quite impressed with it. As you can see, the point is quite thin which allows you to get an extremely precise line with it. I do prefer liquid liners over gel infinitely, and my Shiseido liner, while awesome as all hell, is becoming a little defective. I think the brush is clogged with eyeshadow or something. It will need to be washed (if possible) prior to the next refill. Anyway, it's been years since I've bought a liquid liner, so I think this purchase is very much justified. It's refillable too, which I love! And they put a stopper into it to prevent the ink from flowing until it is removed and you are going to use it. I love that concept! 

And of course, as with any Sephora order, there were samples and bonus gifts!


[Sephora Samples: Make Up For Ever's Smoky Extravagant Mascara, Omorovicza's Thermal Cleansing Balm, fresh's Rose Face Mask]

They also had a weekly special freebie available:


[Stila's Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Beso]

Absolutely gorgeous! 

Then, there was the 100 point bonus gift!


[Murad's Instant Radiance Eye Cream]

I'm definitely beyond happy with all my new toys! New reviews are upcoming for sure!

  1. Super, super haul! I'm so jealous and yes, that Milk of Magnesium I know all about. My mobile oil wells (AKA known as pores) and I have done the research. Would love to hear your experience of it - you know how much I trust you, sweetie!

    1. It's so sad that there's isn't a more efficient/common means of getting stuff over here! Completely unreasonable.
      I'll definitely be testing this out this week and I'll let you know how it goes. Would you like some? I'd be happy to send a refill bottle of the stuff over. I completely understand the suffering. On my next trip to Singapore, I'm going to take a look as to whether it is available there. *fingers crossed*

  2. Your generosity knows no bounds but I couldn't possibly milk YOU of your magensia! Don't worry, I have family coming in from Down Under soon and will milk them instead. That's what family is for, no? I think the M of M goes by the name of Mylanta in Oz.

    Curiously, this is what I read about Milk of Magnesia recently...

    1. Definitely noted on the Oz name. I'm down there next month. What else should I be picking up? Hehehe
      First human rights, now this?! This war against sulphates is affecting my life. I'm not really averse to a few carcinogens here and there. After all, people who smoke look for sulphate-free stuff too. It's all a lot of contradictions and witch hunts for regulators to pretend they're doing something and beauty companies to pretend that they have our best interests at heart!

    2. Well, you could go and test drive Miranda Kerr's Kora, grab some more ModelCo, Red Earth, stock up on Lush, swatch some Napoleon Perdis, consider some Ella Bache, try some Becca, look into Aesop, or pick up some pretty MOR. Don't forget to dig around those drugstores like Priceline a bit - I still think they are the best place for cheap-as-chips cult products in any country.

    3. Lush has been on my to-do list for a while. I'm glad they finally have one in Singapore, but I'd rather go to Australia than to Singapore! I didn't know Becca was from Australia, but this just added a whole host of new stuff to my list! And I had totally forgotten about Napoleon Perdis, so thank you!

      Wonderful list and drugstores are a must anywhere! I'm just waiting for the day when I get to raid Parisian drug stores!
