The ZA Stardust Wonderland Limited Edition Christmas Collection comes in 8 sets.
You can choose the pink casing (Pink-In-Flight) or silver casing (Silver Mist).

Set A/B: Pink or Silver Case with 2 Skin Beauty 2-way foundation refills + Satin Wristlet

Each set retails for SGD$33.50 at Watsons.

I saw it at Watsons Christmas Cardmember Sale and I just walked past it without giving an extra look. I heard it was actually selling for $20+ after discount.-stabs self- I'm quite impressed by what's included in the sets after looking it up.

All in all, I still find it a good deal compared to previous ZA limited edition sets. At least there's many alternative besides taking the wristlet (the usual freebie). :)

Do check it out if you're a ZA user. And if you aren't, it's a good time to test out their foundation and skincare products. :)

New Hauls: L'Oreal Christmas Sale

I went for the L'Oreal Christmas Beauty Sale at Singapore Expo and bought stuff. Wasn't as excited about it as compared to the past. But past experiences have certainly helped because now I work my way through the tables and boxes of items super fast. :D

Bought the 

Maybelline Eye Studio Wet Eye Shadow Quads - Pink Persuasion

Maybelline Eye Studio Diamond Glow Eyeshadow Quad (also known as Maybelline Eye Studio™ Color Plush™ Silk Eyeshadow in other countries ) in 03 Gray Pink, 04 Ocean Blue, 07 Mocha Brown. (2 for $15)
Maybelline Eyestudio Quad in MX-1 New York Nights.
Maybelline EyeStudio Gel Liners in Purple (Limited Edition) (1 for $10)
Maybelline Volume Express Hypercurl Mascara in Very Black (1 for $10)

L'Oreal True Match Concealer - Light/Medium Neutral

L'Oreal True Match Super Blendable Concealer in W 4-5 (light/medium)
L'Oreal True Match Touche Magique in N3-4-5 Natural Beige
L'oreal Blush Delice in Fresh Papaya (all 3 for $20)

L'Oreal Derma Genesis Pore Minimising Smoother (1 for $10)

The gift with purchase was L'Oreal Paris Re-Nutrition Nourishing Shampoo with Royal Jelly.

I tried out some of the stuff and like most of it. The only disappointment was probably the Diamond Glow eyeshadow quads which I had high hopes for due to the raves for it in Youtube and MakeupAlley. It was just sparkles and little pigmentation when I tested it. I was expecting a little more pigmented. The darkest shade was really nice though. I'll probably try it out again with another eyeshadow primer to see how it goes.

The surprise was actually the L'Oreal True Match Touche Magique Concealer which helped to cover most of my dark circles. I own a Touche Magique Concealer and recall it only comes in 2 shades, a light and a darker shade. I was quite surprised to see it being sold at the sale and that it had a shade labelled on it. Unfortunately there was only one shade but I grabbed it anyway. Quite impressed by how it brightens the undereye area. The coverage is also better than the older Touche Magique I have. It's a little lighter than what I prefer to use but still usable. I might actually pop by the drugstore to see what other shades they are offering. I really hope they are still selling it.
