Shopee ‘til you drop
Adapted from source: @fonearena
Some call 11/11 Singles’ Day because of the forever alone “1”s lined up in a row – you know, like the sad story of parallel lines who will never meet. Yet another occasion for your singledom to be rubbed in your face.
But hey, if your wishes for that elusive bae at 11:11pm each night have yet to come true, don’t despair. Surround yourself with what makes you happy this 11/11 – and by that we mean cheap shopping, of course.
Here’s the inside scoop on Shopee’s 11/11 hourly lobangs that you’ll want to skip out on a blind date to camp at your computer for.
1. SK-II Facial Treatment Essence 75ml, $19.90 (U.P. $69)
If there’s such a thing as youth in a bottle, this is it. Lauded as one of the best anti-aging skincare brands in Asia, SK-II is endorsed by celebs like Tang Wei and our very own Rebecca Lim. Lightweight and non-greasy, their Facial Treatment Essence is one of their bestsellers. Sadly, not all of us can afford this skin elixir…’til now, that is. CHIONG TIME!
Time to chiong: 12pm
2. Razer Deathadder Gaming Mouse, $59.90 (U.P. $109)
A high-performing mouse to a gamer is like a good set of makeup brushes to a makeup addict – a must-have, basically. Pwn all your mates at Dota with Razer’s Deathadder Gaming Mouse. Tip-top optical sensors will have your character moving with snake-like stealth – like an adder, geddit? – and the ergonomic curve will help alleviate carpal tunnel even after long hours of battle.
Time to chiong: 2pm
3. Too Faced Melted Lipstick, $9.90 (U.P. $33)
“But I already have so many lipsticks!”, pish posh. One can never have too much makeup and you know it, especially not at such dirt-cheap prices. The longwearing liquid Melted Lipstick from Too Faced doesn’t lie – rocking a 10/10 colour payoff, what you see on the tube is exactly what you’ll get on your lips. Go on and coat your smoochers in their crazy range of shades, from nudes to pretty pastels and dark goth hues.
Time to chiong: 3pm
4. Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream 100ml, $29.90 (U.P. $76)
You no longer have an excuse for constantly reeking of stale pizza now that you can own a large 100ml bottle of one of Marc Jacobs’ signature scents for less than 30 bucks. Daisy Dream will have you in a soft cloud of floral fragrance wherever you go, and can double up as a decorative item for your desk too.
Time to chiong: 11am
5. Redmi Note 4, $139 (U.P. $288)
If you don’t fancy the iPhone 7 and would rather camp for 8, have the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 as a stand-in instead. Don’t look down on this China-born brand – its phones are hella sleek and the Redmi Note 4, in particular, has a 13-megapixel primary camera rivalling Samsung Galaxy 7’s 12-megapixel one.
Yes, selfie queens, there’s beauty mode included – who needs Mei Tu Xiu Xiu? In fact, this phone might just grow on you and make itself your mate for life…’til the next Redmi comes out, at least.
Time to chiong: 11am
