Saturday Steals

I’ll update on any promotions I am privy to on Saturday mornings which gives you a nice headstart to the weekend (and so there’s something to read hehe…). Here are a couple of promotions in this inaugural Saturday Bargains and Steals segment. I’ll keep this running as long as I can but I have a short attention span so some Saturdays might get missed out. 😛

H20+ Giftset RM50 only!


H20+ has a great offer – 50% off this exclusive gift set if you click and print out the voucher above and fill up your name and IC number behind it. Valid until 1 March 2009 or while stocks last, in store terms and conditions apply and only applicable at H20+ free standing stores (no department stores) Look for H20+ stores in Sunway Pyramid, 1 Utama and Pavilion Kuala Lumpur. This makes it just RM50 a set – definitely a steal!!

Lancome new Oscillation Mascara – prelaunch sale

More than half a year after I first wrote about Lancome’s new Oscillation mascara (the vibrating one) Malaysia is getting it, but only in April 2009. If you can’t wait you can be one of the lucky 400 persons to purchase this at the pre launch sales only at KLCC Isetan.

Call KLCC Isetan counter at 03-2382 0281 and make your booking now. The Oscillation mascara retails at RM120 and will go on sale from 4-10 February 2009 exclusively for those who pre-book only.

I recently tested this one – you can’t really see the oscillation but you can feel the buzz. Plus can you say visibly thick and long lashes? Yes, it works – to a degree.

Paperdoll boutique promotion

The Paperdoll boutique promotion continues. Get 10% discount off all clothings (excluding accessories) in store until 31 January 2009 and check out the Paperdoll-My Women Stuff promotion too.

So, go forth and grab some savings and steals this weekend!

Stay beautiful,

Paris B


No no, don’t go dying just yet! At least see the compact first! 😀

Lady Dior compact Spring 2009

When I first got wind of the Lady Dior compact from Christian Dior cosmetics for Spring 2009, I was immediately smitten. (I can’t remember whose blog I saw it on – it might be A touch of blusher). But hello? I love bags and I love makeup so of course makeup in a “bag” called my name! In fact, it called it repeatedly 😛 I don’t have a Lady Dior bag yet, but this might change my mind.

From all the online reviews of the Lady Dior compact, no one ever mentioned its size. All along, I thought it was about the size of a lipgloss palette i.e. tiny. In fact, its big! Here’s a picture showing its rough dimensions.

Lady Dior compact

I’m not kidding when I say big right? Its about 9cm x 7cm which is a little larger than what I was expecting.

The Lady Dior compact is a lip/cheek compact in the shape of the classic Lady Dior quilted bag. It comes with a soft quilted exterior over a sturdy heavy metal frame, a strap and clasp so you can hang it on your handbag or use it as a keychain (if you like), right down to the 4 letter charms that spell D-i-o-r. In other words, its a perfect replica charm of the Lady Dior bag. So, I can’t afford the Lady Dior bag right now, but goshdarnit! I’ll have the Lady Dior compact! hehe…

I came across the upcoming Kanebo Coffret D’or Spring 2009 collection yesterday and my eyes lit up immediately. It was a collection I had been keeping an eye out for because the Shine Accent eyeshadow palettes looked so pretty online.

Just look at them. Don’t they look lovely and shimmery and pastel – just how Spring colours usually are?

Coffret D'or Spring 2009

Unfortunately, I was quite bummed after I’d played around with them for a while. The texture of the eyeshadows are lovely – typical Coffret D’or – smooth, shimmery and silky. In fact, I might venture to say that they are even silkier than the 3D Lighting Eyes palette that I like. More pictures below.

Courtesy of Julea of Asiatic Beauty, I received a bar of Pegaga body bar soap.

Pegaga bar soap

Pegaga (also known as Pennywort leaves, gotu kola, centella asiatica) is a herb popular in Malaysia for its medicinal properties and has a reputation for boosting mental activity and for helping a variety of systemic illnesses, such as high blood pressure, rheumatism, fever, and nervous disorders (Read more here and here) The Pegaga bar soap contains extract of pegaga leaves and is supposed to clean and condition, gently exfoliating without damaging the skin.

The Asiatic Beauty Pegaga bar soap is a largish translucent glycerin soap bar made with pegaga extract. What makes this soap bar a little special and out of the ordinary is the inclusion of ground apricot kernals into the soap. This transforms the soap bar from a mere cleaning agent to a scrubbing and cleaning agent. Quite clever!
