Makeup Up Haul: Dior Lash Serum, Lioele Eyebrow, EcoTools Brush, Kate Eyebrow, The Body Shop Eye Makeup Remover, Makeup Geek Eyeshadows


I’ve been hauling a lot recently. Been very much in the mood for it!

My good ol’ Shiseido Nourishing Mascara Base is finally seeing its end. A devoted hard worker you have been, my dearest, now it is time for you to retire. Let’s see if the Diorshow Maximizer Lash Plumping Serum is really worth all the rave.

Price of Diorshow Maximizer Lash Plumping Serum in Singapore: EXORBITANT. Lol.

Yup, this is another Lioele Auto Eyebrow Pencil. Teehee. I wanted to buy it in Shade 1, but the silly store assistant wrongly gave me Shade 2. Traveling back to the store was too much trouble and time, so I decided to keep it. Shade 2 is really a little dark for me. This new one is Shade 1 (happened to be in the area some time very much later). Review on Lioele Auto Eyebrow Pencils coming soon!

Price of Lioele Auto Eyebrow Pencil in Singapore: SGD12.90 (I think)

My current one is shedding its bristles like mad even though it is still very soft.

Price of EcoTools Blush Brush in Singapore: SGD15.90

Kate Eyebrow Color – Because I wanted to try coloring my eyebrows. I’m very interested to try this out!

Price of Kate Eyebrow Color in Singapore: SGD14.50

I had The Body Shop Camomile Eye Makeup Remover previous generation for YEARS! I use this whenever I need to remove a small smudge of mascara, eyeliner drawn too long or thick, you know, correct small mistakes. For hardcore removal of eye makeup, I still rely on the Biore Eye & Lip Makeup Remover. Don’t think I will ever stop using that.

Price of The Body Shop Camomile Eye Makeup Remover in Singapore: Two 60ml travel-sized bottles for SGD9.90

I mentioned using sponge applicators, in the previous post, to apply the L’Oreal Infallible Eyeshadows (Goldmine review, Emerald Lame review).

Price of this sponge applicator pen in Singapore: SGD3.00. You can usually get a pack of 10 applicators for about SGD2.00, but I paid more for this one primarily for its stackable sections. I like a long handle.

I also ordered……………… Makeup Geek Eyeshadows!!! Wheeeee……!!! Over a few days around Valentine’s Day, MUG gave 20% off all store purchases and since they ship internationally, which is AWESOME, I grabbed the chance to GRAB some eyeshadows and brushes!

Savings of USD12.00! 😀

Marlena is such an inspiration, isn’t she? She started off filming her own makeup tutorials, then collaborated with more people to produce themed projects, had models coming on her tutorials, created a thriving community, talked about her weight losing journey and finally surgery (Not sure if it’s tummy tuck or liposuction), sold products off her site, and then now produces her own Makeup Geek makeup line. They are in the process of churning out a full makeup line – eyeshadows, blushes, lipsticks, lip glosses, etc. What a woman! *thumbs up*

I’ll definitely do reviews on the MUG Eyeshadows when they arrive! In the meantime, check them out at the Makeup Geek site.

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.

Throughout this blog you will see Bun Bun in different poses.

Instead of using numbers (3/5, 4/5) or alphabets (B+, A+) to rate products, I put Bun Bun in different positions and expressions to represent the rating given to the product after a review.

In Bun-O-Meter, the first on the list would mean a 5/5 rating and the last one a 1/5 rating.

You can always refer to the sidebar any time you don’t understand what Bun Bun’s pose means.

I hope you enjoy reading my makeup and beauty posts as much as I did writing them.

Talk to you soon! =)

    • Bun Bun

      They are! Kinda fun too. Haha. I can’t wait for the MUG eyeshadows to arrive. I’ll definitely write a review on them!

  • Sharlynn

    That blush brush from eco tools is really great! I’ve however found a line of brushes that look exactly the same and are of equal or even better quality than the ecotool brushes at Sasa called “Cala tools”. I want to try that dior product so badly! Was so close to getting a mini sized a while ago but didn’t :(

    That make up remover doesn’t work so well for me, I find it stings when it gets in my eye…! Sensitive me…

    OMG, damn…MUG eyeshadows!!! Can’t wait until you get them!! The swatches are amazing, I hope they amaze you! :))

    I have been hauling bits here and there but must, must stopping and save money! :))

    I’ve used the ECO tools brushes since about 2006 (maybe 2007) and I still have those brushes. They last forever and are a great quality and value. If you can find ones that are in a set, even better bang for you buck :)

    • Bun Bun

      Yeah I got the set first but felt that the only star was the blush brush, which I repurchased. :) It doesn’t last very long though, unlike MAC brushes. One year on and it’s shedding like mad! The bristles had also lost their softness. I got a second one becoz I really liked its softness when it’s new.
