I’ve been holding back for the past couple of months when it comes to shopping for makeup simply because this blog has been able to provide me more than enough makeup already. However, after stepping inside SM Aura’s beauty section for the first time, I realized one thing – the actual shopping for makeup amounts to more than half the fun of owning them. I won’t elaborate on this for I know you already get the jist, right? *wink!
Anyway, let me show you the things I got yesterday. Yup, you read it right. I bought ALL these yesterday
at SM Aura.. and now my poor wallet is mourning for the unexpected splurge. LOL! I have to apologize for the photos though. I was so excited to take pictures so I used my phone camera.
Za 12-in-1 BB Cream UV White (Buy 1 Take 1, Php 425) | Za Perfect Fit Two-Way Foundation 2) Refill + Limited Edition Naho Ogawa Foundation Case (Php 790) | Za Perfect Fit Concealer in 02 (Php 299.75)
I saw this on Za Cosmetics’ Instagram account. Well, according to their post, the 12-in-1 BB Cream should be 50% but instead it was on Buy 1 Take 1 promo. Price-wise, it’s the same but I don’t think I’ll be needing two tubes just to test out the product. I didn’t really plan on buying a new concealer too but when I saw the coverage of the Perfect Fit Concealer, I just had to get it. I can never have enough concealers anyway – I just hope it won’t sit on lines. 🙂
I recently hit pan on my favorite GNY Mineral Dual Foundation (Read review HERE)
and while waiting for it to go on sale, I decided to try out something new. Just my luck, Za Perfect Fit Two-Way Foundation was on sale too! When you buy 2 refills, you get a free limited edition Naho Ogawa case. I’ve always wanted to try this ever since I heard the brand is back. The timing couldn’t be more perfect. 🙂
Florimar Eyeliner Pen (Php 249) | Essence I <3 Stage Eyeshadow Base (Php 189) | Collection Cosmetics Blush in 02 Bashful (Php 199) | Maybelline Baby Skin Pore Eraser (Php 299)
Now these are some of the products I felt I really need since I’ve been replenishing some of the products in my everyday kikay kit. I used up most of my basic products when we were filming our project and I don’t want to use my high-end products for everyday use. Anyway, let’s see how these affordable finds would hold up during the day. 🙂
Majolica Majorca Colorist in BR555 (Php 595) | IN2IT Eyebrow Colour (Php 299.75)
I finally caved and bought this talked-about brow colorist from Majolica Majorca! Another thing to cross off my 2013 Wishlist
. 🙂 I originally planned on getting the “Wow Brow” set with the lighter shade but the sales lady didn’t seem to know anything about the it.. I had to buy the colorist separately. Plus, I recently had my hair done which makes this reddish brown shade a better match. And oh, this IN2IT brow set has been a staple in my makeup kit. I already used up the 2 lightest shades and it’s about time to buy a back up.
Bifesta Sebum Cleansing Lotion (Php 419) | Tony Moly Lemon Seed Massage Cream (Php 198) | Spa Essentials Massage Oil (Php 149)
I’m almost done with my first Bifesta Moist Cleansing Lotion and I was torn about getting another one or trying Bioderma makeup remover for a change. There isn’t much difference in the price but I still opted to get Bifesta because, honestly, it is the best makeup remover I’ve tried so far. I promise I’ll write a decent review on it soon.
The Tony Moly Massage Cream was supposedly for le BF. He thought it a facial wash because it smelled a lot like his favorite facial wash, Etude Hose Baking Soda. It turns out to be some sort of makeup remover. Thank honey! 🙂 Ooohh, my shoulders have been killing me the past few days hopefully this massage oil could relieve the the ache. I’m totally loving he smell, by the way.
Meow! by Katy Perry (Php 2,100)
If you follow me on Instagram, you probably know that I was invited to the launching of Katy Perry’s third fragrance, Killer Queen, yesterday. It was said that, compared to her previous scents, Killer Queen is tad stronger and bolder – well, it really is. However, they only have limited stocks of Killer Queen. In that case, they gave us this Meow! as a take-home gift instead. I’ll get my hands on the Killer Queen once their stocks arrive. wink!
TDK In-Ear Headphones (Php 999) from Astroplus.. just a little something something for le BF. As you all know, I’m not very techie but he really loves the ceramic pieces and how the bass sounds on these. Anything to keep him quite while I blog. Just kidding!:)
That’s about it for my haul from yesterday. What do you think? Is it too much?
I’ll be posting a different September-October collective haul this coming week too.
Happy Sunday everyone. God Bless! <3
