Loving it when luck steps in…

While I was browsing in Singapore a couple of weeks back in either Guardian or Watsons, I came across this ZA’s “Love in Bloom” promotional set, which consisted of two refills of ZA’s Two-Way Foundation, a limited edition compact (choice of two designs) and a pouch for SGD33.50. I was seriously tempted, but decided to ‘think about it’ since it was really the case that caught my eye, but not much else. I didn’t manage to go back to that shop again before I left, so couldn’t get it though…or so I thought.

Hehe…while I was looking through the latest promotional booklet from Watsons, guess what I spotted? And with a better promotion too – I could get that limited edition compact for just RM1 with any RM50 purchase (inclusive of a 2-Way Foundation refill). Plus, since the 2-Way Foundation refills had been discounted down to RM28.90, I only had to buy two to hit the mark! :D

So, two 2-Way Foundation refills plus the compact came up to RM58.80, compared to the RM82 I would have ended up spending had I bought it in Singapore…RM23.20 for that tiny silver pouch? Hardly…three cheers for divine intervention! :D

Hey bee, I swung by Watsons at the curve and they said they didn't have it in stock yet after saying they had NO CLUE what I wanted. Despite the fact the signs were up. -_- I really hate customer service (or lack of it) in this country.

Which Watsons did you manage to get these from? And what do you think of the compact?

iced nyior: the foundation is good if you're looking for something quick and effective. :D for me it works better than TBS..
