Alright, just because they are not available in Singapore does not mean I HAVE TO buy them.

But so many blogs I follow are people from the US and they go on and on about how good these ‘drugstore’ products are. I put drugstore between inverted commas because by the time they reach my hands, after the exchange rate set by the spree-er + shipping + delivery + handling fee, the prices are not very drugstore at all.

But I still buy them because most of the time, if we have it in Singapore, it’s much cheaper and there are more options available if I buy online. Like the Revlon Colorstay Foundation.

Real Techniques Stippling Brush. A line of makeup brushes Samantha Chapman (from Pixiwoo) designed.

This is my second tube of Monistat Chafing Relief Powder Gel. Read my review!

New York Color (NYC) Smooth Skin Bronzing Face Powder in Sunny. I’ve been wanting this for a long time but didn’t know where to get it. Tao uses this almost daily.

Tiffany from Will Work for Makeup was the one who got me interested in the Milani Baked Blush in Luminoso.

Actually some stores in Singapore carry Milani, like Robinsons or John Little, but they’re wayyyyyy overpriced.

Prestige Total Intensity EyeLiner, Long Lasting Intense Color in Deepest Black. Said to be a dupe for Urban Decay 24/7 pencil in Zero. We’ll see!

Essence of Beauty Crease Brush Duo. These disappeared from CVS.com for a while, for whatever reason. Then they came back and I quickly ordered! They have been given a packaging makeover.

It’s been raining a lot recently and the days are reduced to a gloomy state of grey skies laced with strips of raindrops. Not cheery at all. An occasional downpour is good – to cool the heat of sunny Singapore, but too much affects my mood! How’s the weather over at your side?

About Bun Bun

Hello! My name is Juli and Bun Bun is my alter-ego. I blog to share my love for makeup, how to apply it, and what works or what doesn’t work, all from an Asian perspective.

My first makeup product was a shimmery light blue lipstick which I proudly wore all over my eyelids and lips. It cost $2.50, felt like $250, and made me feel like a million bucks.
