Stock up on your Epically Epic Lip Tints, Shimmers, Balms and Solid Lotions!

Allison of Epically Epic is having her 2nd baby soon, which means she will be closing her shop for a period of time to take care of the lil’ one! A 10% discount code “BABYBROTHER” is available while stocks last!

I’ve raved about her lip tints plenty before, so refer to the tags to access those old posts.

Her lovely handmade products are available at:

A colleague of mine had a lip reaction to a certain pricey label’s lip product from a certain store. I gave her a couple of the Epically Epic Lip Tints and no problem with those! Recommended for sensitive lips that tend to react to chemicals, but do read through the ingredients to double check in case you’re allergic to something.

Promo Code for pharmazon.gr (10 euros off!) – Korres, Apivita, Avene and other European skincare labels.

For Korres, Avene and Apivita skincare buyers, I’ve received and used this code on www.pharmazon.gr (a Greek website) that I’ve purchased a couple of times from in the past.

(KORRES sales on pharmazon.gr) 10 € discount coupon EZCEX9 on orders over 55 €. Just enter it at checkout. Valid until 26/01/2014.

This site has reasonable prices for international buyers and the shipping prices are still ok for lighter items. It’s 15 euros for up to 1 kg and 27 euros between 1 – 2kgs. The code helps to offset the shipping for me :)

Check out the bundled gift sets for sunblock that come either with an after-sun cream or another tube/bottom of sunblock. Pretty good value for money.

Still Bedazzled by Bezels

Moving from dangle bezel earrings, I’ve started using them in stud form as well, for an elegant, no-frills look. Here’re a few new ones which I’ll be putting upon Ebay shortly, all set in 925 Sterling Silver. They are around 10mm – slightly over 12mm large, depending on the stone and setting used.

I’ve also gotten hold of some frosted Czech Glass in funky shades, which give a more modern take.

This is a sampling of the earrings, with more on my Ebay listings at http://www.ebay.com.sg/sch/sui_gemeris/m.html?item=251381206373&ssPageName=STRK%3AMESELX%3AIT&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2562

Readers of my blog get 10% off by quoting “lipglossfriend” after bidding. For Singapore buyers, I only accept local bank transfers.

I can ship overseas and can accept Paypal, please contact me on Ebay for a quote or leave a comment with your email address on my blog. Overseas registered airmail shipping start at US$4.50 for the 1st item, with US$0.50 only for every additional.

I do have sterling silver bezel settings suitable for pendants (with or without chain) and bracelets. In the near future, I hope to offer bangles too.

Sparkling New Pursuits…

Hi All,

Sorry, but I haven’t felt like blogging about skincare, perfume and makeup for the longest time. Not that I’m neglecting any of them, but I feel that there’s only so much I can discuss on them, before it all gets repetitive.

I’ve also been feeling very, very restless. Other than going away for short breaks (usually scuba diving), I’ve also taken up jewellery making. Or maybe it’s just the magpie in me coming to the fore :) I must admit, I enjoy making them more. A lot. Such that my collection at home is getting quite out of hand. It destresses me and takes my mind off work, to focus on something wholly different. As such, I’ll be putting them on sale as I really enjoy the thinking, selecting and making process.

I’m focusing on natural semiprecious gemstones in sterling silver setting, to provide for quality, yet affordable jewellery that will last. Not shiny plated bits that flake off or discolour soon enough. The supplies do add up to quite a pretty bit of moolah, so I’ll be limiting them to earrings and necklaces first. Oh yes, and pretty silver-plated bobby pins with gemstones. These are the only exception. In time to come and when sales pick up (fingers crossed!) I hope to provide yellow gold and rose gold filled metals as well, in addition to even pricier semiprecious stones. We’ll see about that.

Once I get in some new supplies, enough to set up an online shop (probably on Etsy and Ebay), I’ll update this blog again. Just in time to catch the Xmas season, I hope!

In the meantime, here’s a sampler :)
