Saizen Store + MAC tag

Hello dear readers! I'd like to write something about the Saizen Store located in Robinson's Galleria. I've seen some posts about it in Nikkiz' and Donnarence's blogs, so when my sister asked me to come with her to Saizen, I just had to say yes!

Here it is from the outside:

Just so you know, everything inside the store is P85 (around $1.60). There's a lot of stuff to look at. Not everything inside is value-for-money, though. There are some that you're better off buying somewhere else. But there's a lot of nifty finds in the beauty part...

Here's a picture. There are a lot of good nail stuff there that's interesting and they also have a nice selection for falsies. I haven't bought anything yet, but I will in the future!

Anyway, moving on, I got MAC tagged by Pammy and Martha. I have to admit I'm not as into MAC as most makeup junkies are (since I'm a MMU addict at heart), but I'm always happy to oblige!

Here it is...

How long have you been using Mac?
Maybe more than a year.

What was your first Mac product?
MAC Blot Pressed Powder

What's your all time favourite Mac product?
MAC beauty powders

What's your least favourite Mac product?
Their lipglasses. (ditto!) It's nice but for it's price, I'll just find something that isn't sticky.

Do you own a Pro Card?
Nope, coz we don't have a Pro store here.

Your Mac foundation shade:
I haven't found my exact shade yes. I'm definitely lighter than NC30 so I'm around NC20-25. Yes, I don't use MAC foundations since I only use MMU foundations.

What's your favourite Mac-



creme royal


fluidline in dipdown

187 (it's most people favorite, i think)

Nail Lacquer:

Pro Product:
I've never tried any pro products! wahhh!

Oooh, I guess Saizen is something like Daiso?

That is one long tag!!! lol

Steph said...

ooooh! ive only been to saizen once! and it took me about 2 hours to rummage the entire store. and i wouldn't have left the store if it weren't for my parents calling me. haha. i hope they had more selection of falsies. but anyways, i was able to buy those sparkly stick-ons which i used during my finals haha

oh its funny coz the saizen is beside the daiso. so now, people tend to go to saizen instead because its bigger and more attractive. lol

ning * star said...

oh, i think it is something like Daiso... haha :)
blair and i have same thought!

-Yu- said...

looks like heaven! ha ha, i wish we had a store like that in canada.

Crystal Gale said...

hi sis! does saizen have foods too? I love Japanese snacks haha :)

Pop Champagne said...

wow looks like a store I'd go and spend forever in lol! And I feel the same way about lipglass too, though they do make your lips all nice and shiny! :)

~tHiAmErE~ said...

i have not seen that one yet..
well..its been sometime since i went to rob gale..
but i will definitely go there sometime

Crystal said...

blair, yes it's something like daiso. haha yep the tag is long but i didn't answer everything.

steph, even if there aren't much choices for the falsies, there are still some good ones there. regarding daiso, i know right? more people are going to saizen now.

ning*star, yep! in fact, they're almost right beside each other.

Crystal said...

yu, the daiso in other countries have much more stuff than we do :(

gale, i don't think it has food items there. i'm not entirely sure though.

Crystal said...

pop champagne, i know right? i'd rather spend my money on lip gloss that isn't sticky.

thiamere, yeah i don't think they have any other branches yet. i think they'll expand though.
