Shopping Haul 03 and Review on Drugstore Products

I love to shop online especially those brands that are not officially available here in Singapore or  those that are extremely expensive if I will buy it in malls like Havaianas. I don't know why Havaianas is expensive here in Singapore. A basic design cost approximately SGD49.00 (P1,715.00) in ION Orchard. They do have sales sometimes though, but I would rather save my time and energy buying it online. So here's what I've got from

Drugtore Products:I am curious about those drugstore brands that are popular over the internet because it's cheap yet good quality makeup products (need to figure out myself). I've been loving Revlon and Maybelline but  I am talking about NYX and e.l.f Cosmetics. These brands are not available in Malls here in Singapore (not that I know of). So, I searched over the internet and found one reliable online store. This is my third purchase from them. The first two purchases I bought all NYX Cosmetics. Here are my purchases:


1.NYX Lipgloss Red Rediscovered palette is pretty, very pigmented and moisturizing. What I love that it is not sticky unlike the usual lip glosses I used.It comes in 5 colors which is worth it. I recommend to use your finger to apply because I don't find the brush good. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

2.The e.l.f. eyebrow kit is quite good with a free brush for the price of SGD9.00 (P315.00). The color is very natural on the eyebrows but I still opt to buy the NYX Eyebrow Cake Powder  Kit at SGD7.50 (cheaper, P262.00) which includes a wax, a slanted brush and a round wand to shape, style and tame eyebrows. RECOMMENDED
3. I am quite disappointed with the corrective concealer. Even I pressed my finger so hard I can't get an amount of it so I still need to scratch it to get a certain amount for me to use. I dab a brown color over the pink one. It does not really conceal as what I wanted  but when I added the Revlon Photoready Concealer 003, it actually covers my dark spots and looks natural on my skin. NOT WORTH IT. 
4. Suprisingly  with the price of SGD30.00 (P1,050.00), the 24k 32-Piece Eyeshadow Palette is really pigmented. Beautiful on the eyes specially when you put an eye primer first. The only thing I don't like is the packaging. Looks really cheap compare to NYX palettes which the price range is almost the same. Other than that, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this palette.
