Stalk my Holiday: Drugstore Haul

How good are Asian drug stores? You can randomly find Korean/Japanese makeup like Dolly Wink alongside European brands like Nuxe. Watson's and Guardian are everywhere in Singapore. Did I say everywhere? I always go in to have a quick browse. The aisles are always narrow in Singapore and the products always jump out and say BUY ME!!

I am including some items that I picked up for other people as they are so cute! And other items that I bought .. well just because it was so much cheaper in Singapore.

Oh Hurro Kitty!!
Who can walk past any drugstore in Asia and not buy anything branded Hello Kitty! Hurro!!!
This is the emergency medical kit for a friend. Includes Hurro Kitty bandaids (D calls them bandjades) and a Cold Pack. Zomg how cute!


Silky Girl who knew of this brand?
I thought I would pick up something cool, cheap and an "unknown" brand called Silky Girl for Vita. It was also reduced and on sale at 25% off. I picked up a lovely colour called Sugar Plum as she loves purple anything and can pull of lilac lipsticks! Turns out.. she already knows of this brand. DUH.... I was also asked to check out Silky Girl BB compact for her and to get a light yellow based beige. This is in Ivory which is the lightest shade. It says it's formulated for Asian skin though. LOL so I hope it works wonders for Vita!


Lip Butters Macaroon, Cherry Tart, Sweet Tart


I had 5 minutes before my massage appointment and what else do I browse but Watson's again. Wait wait... Buy 2 get 1 free? And Revlon Lip Butters were $15.90 each. So it's about $12 each which meant I paid $24 for these 3 lip butters. I have always wanted lip butters. I would browse on eBay and sort of never proceeded to purchase. So I grabbed these 3. I have a feeling that Macaroon is a mistake but I will live with it at $8. But is it me or does everyone love Sweet Tart?

Sunscreen a Must in Asia ok! Repeat after me
So guess who got sunburnt in Singapore at the Zoo.. yeap Mick did. He was the white caucasian tourist walking around sunburnt and all red for a week. LOL.... I should not laugh as it looked so painful. There is a massive waterplay area at the zoo. Think water slides, big fountains, small fountains spraying water, water guns and big structures that dumped down water at kids waiting below. The funny thing is, he had rubbed some sunscreen that was left on his hands after applying on the boys on his upper shoulder. There was a "M" mark left there. As we were also using the toddler sunscreen - yeah we are hopeless - I bought this cute little bottle of Nivea Toddler sunscreen. It was easy to apply and smelt great. I'm sticking to stealing the kid's small tube of sunscreen for awhile.

I hope to post some of the fashion buys soon! They may include the family purchases and not just mine. Bear with me!

  4. YES!! I love Watson/Guardian and CANNOT resist walking in to have a look (which usually sees me leaving with something I didn't need).

    I like Silky Girl but it's very much so an Asian product! I don't think I actually own anything from there beyond a tinted lip balm.

    Love your Revlon haul too, I think (but cannot recall presently) that Macaroon might be a limited edition only available in Asia. I have Sweet Tart too but it isn't very pigmented. :)

    1. Is it? I have no idea and seriously I am always the last on these on trend items. Who buys lip butters now? They all rush to get Just Bitten or the new matte ones.

  5. I've heard some good reviews of Silky Girl, I think I saw that BB compact on Larie's blog? (Eye Heart It, maybe?) I have so so many lip butters, I tend to go overboard when things like that come out I hate that about myself!

  7. Ahh! I love Watsons - I bought tons of Fuso Nail polish there last time. I'm looking forward to testing out the Silky Girl BB compact as I've read great reviews on it! Thank you for scouting it out, and the lippy too! xo
