I took some time off from work and headed to Isetan Anniversary Sales on Friday morning. The first day usually is closed for Isetan members. I was told there’s a Paul & Joe and Anna Sui further markdown 2 weeks ago and I was really excited. I go in from Ground Floor and went straight up to 4th floor at “The Gallery” where the cosmetic and fragrance fair is held. Here’s my damage.
I didn’t know where Paul & Joe counter is at so I took my time to browse around for other stuff and then I saw them. My target is to get lipstick, eyeshadow, 2-way foundation but there’s no single lipstick or eyeshadow for sale. Everything is packed in a set and we can’t choose the lipstick or lip gloss colour that are in the set. I was delighted to see that Paul & Joe Protective Dual Powder Foundation UV Set selling at RM158 which comes with a free refill and lip gloss. Next I decided to grab Paul & Joe Face Color & Lip Gloss Coffret Set for RM109.
|Face Color C is actually powder balls just like Guerlain’s. I never have this before so I got it anyway eventhough RM109 to me is kinda expensive considering the items in the set is very little and I don’t like/wear lip gloss.|
|Drawstring satin pouch is made from thick satin material which doesn’t feel flimsy at all. It’s kinda cute too 🙂|
The most value for money and anticipated purchase for me is this Paul & Joe Protective Dual Powder Foundation UV Set which comes with a retail compact, refill pack and a Lip Gloss N. All that for RM158. The compact itself costs RM150. Basically I just add RM8 for the refill and lip gloss! LOL.

I moved over to Anna Sui for mascara but they only offer 30% off from retail price which is not really a lot saving if I were to compare with all the counter there. So I moved to Shiseido counter and managed to grabbed MAQuillAGE Full Vision Mascara #BK999 for RM40 and two Eye Color N which is eyeshadow base for RM17.50 each. When I checked the mascara the next morning, to my horror the mascara is all dried up. So I brought it along with me the next day (yes I went again with my colleague) and ask for an exchange. I was told straight to my face that they don’t allow exchange. I screamed a lil to her saying that I bought a mascara from them, it’s dried up and I can’t exchange? She said yes they don’t allow exchange. I repeated myself again this time with a hard tone and she said she’d ask from another colleague. I overheard her colleague saying to her that they must exchange for me and I was relieved. When the lady came back to me with an answer, she told me to choose another item. I was so annoyed. I insist that I want a mascara and she said it’s sold out. AIYO. SAY SO LA EARLIER. The lady didn’t even mentioned about sold out. She just blindly ask me to choose another item. So I chose a blusher for an exchange with the same price. Phew. Long story huh.

|This is the exact colour. Not as light as above picture. This applies to be more natural. Not too white or too pinky.|
I was happy to see Majolica Majorca there as well. I skipped their eyeshadow which is dirt cheap comparing with drugstore. I only grabbed two Lash Gorgeous Wing mascara for RM29.90 each.
Next. I walked down to Ground Floor to Clarins counter to get HydraQuench Starter Kit which is selling at RM78. This is very similar to Truly Matte Best Busy Set. Only missing a cleanser.
|HydraQuench Intensive Serum Bi-Phase 15ml, HydraQuench Cream-Gel 15ml,HydraQuench Cream-Mask 15ml & white cube pouch.|
|The cute square cube pouch included is cute. I like the leather-like material.|
On the second day, I constrain myself from spending but curious about Kate Nail Color Dry so I bought one to try. It’s to fasten the drying process of nail polish. It’s only RM12.
|* Picture appears blur due to the shrink wrap.|
What’s my damage? Total of RM569.80. Phew.
