February-March 2015 Haul

Hey guys!

I'll be off to Jeju Island tomorrow so I won't be able to post as often as usual. I'm very excited though because I don't travel much, especially outside the country. I'll get to see a foreign place, experience a different culture, and shop! Haha! Anyway, will be sharing some of the items I shopped for the past couple of months!

Beauty Planet Brush Retractable Brushes

I was able to get these for around Php 150.00. They were on sale so I bought one for myself and the other two are for my officemates. The brushes are soft but I do experience a bit of shedding. Just a few strands so they're still good. They also look really cute!

More makeup brushes from Landmark

I can't remember the exact prices of these but I'm pretty sure that they are worth less than Php 200.00 each.

Some products that deal with my acne

I haven't opened the Zenutrients tea tree hydro gel yet. As for the Snoe one, I have reviewed it already. 

Some haircare products

Will make a review on the shampoo soon. The herbinol, I haven't tried yet.

More hygiene related products

Teas from Marks and Spencer

They were 30% off! Yay!

Art books about local artists

These were so affordable. One is only Php 100 and the other is Php 200.

The rest of the items were bought from Beauty Bar...

Got this one on sale. Original price was Php 295.00 and was able to get this less than Php 200.00

Bought this to take with me during my travel to Jeju.

And oh, I was able to grab these items while they were discounted. They were sold super cheap because they have this launch discount promo.

Mythos SPF25 Suncare Milk and Aloe Moisturizing and Cooling Gel plus a towel for Php 330.75. Original price is Php 945.00.

Mythos Deep Tan oil and After Sun Body Milk plus towel
Price is Php 295.75, original price was Php 845.00.

And those are my new items! Let me know if you find any of them interesting!

Clarins Gloss Prodige Intense Shine and Colour in 04 Candy

Hey dolls!

I'll be sharing yet another swatch post. This will just be short... I'm tired from the long week and I just want to go to bed but my mind wants me to post something since I already skipped a post yesterday. Har har.

Clarins Gloss Prodige in 04 Candy

Info from the website:

A new generation gloss combining incredible shine, intense colour and lasting hold. 
Its highly smoothing, gel-like texture which is non-sticky and shapes lips, coats them in a veil of softness and comfort. 
Choose from eight shades which boost overall facial radiance and enjoy their delicious flavour with notes of blackcurrant and liquorice.

How to Apply:
Using the foam tip, apply the fine, non-sticky gloss generously and precisely onto lips: the lips are coated in a veil of softness and comfort, with long-lasting shine and colour.

The Suprashine Colour complex: delivers intense, even glossy colour.
Maxi-Lip® peptide: stimulates production of collagen and hyaluronic acid for fuller-looking lips.
Radiance-boosting pearls: optimise the reflection of light on lips.
Raspberry seed oil: nourishes lips, leaving them soft and supple

This is also one of the preloved products my sister got me. I'm not sure if this came with a set or if it was free, but this is only a trial/travel-size tube.

The gloss is sort of pigmented with fine gold shimmers. Consistency is a little thick and creamy but it's not sticky. It has a fruity candy scent too.

I really like this gloss because of the wearable shade and the sweet scent. Not liking that the labels of the tube are easily scratched off, but the full-sized product's packaging is very beautiful.

Anyway, that's all for this post. Have you tried any gloss from Clarins yet? Which one?

Benefit Hoola Ultra Plush Lip Gloss

Hello dears!

My sister gave me this travel size Benefit lip gloss that would give you a fun and natural pout that's perfect for the incoming summer season!

Benefit Hoola Ultra Plush Lip Gloss

I really like the Hoola Blush/Bronzer from Benefit so I was happy to receive the lip gloss version of it.

Here's the product info from their website:

Why we love it!

Our new plush glosses glide on extra smooth and feel ahhh-mazingly silky and luxurious. The six irresistible shades, from sultry nudes to punchy pinks, come in soft-squeeze tubes with a custom tip designed for perfectly even application. Beauty bonus: They’re the perfect partners for our bestselling box o’ powders!
  • dandelion (soft pearly pink)
  • dallas (dusty rose)
  • sugarbomb (shimmering pinky nude)
  • CORALista (sheer coral)
  • bella bamba (sheer bright watermelon)
  • hoola (shimmering golden nude)


15.0 mL, 0.5 US fl. oz

Beauty tip

To create a beautifully pulled-together look in seconds, pair your favorite gloss with its complementing box o’ powder.
For the list of ingredients, please visit their website.

Like most of the travel size glosses I own, the packaging is a squeeze type tube. Not really a fan of that kind of dispensing though (I like those with applicators). But I like that the tube is transparent so you can easily see the beautiful shade of the product as well as the amount remaining.

The shade is very sheer nude equipped with bronze shimmers. It smells good but very mild. The consistency is just a little thick but not sticky nor greasy.

I find it too sheer for my liking... maybe I'm just used to applying pigmented lip products. This would be great on top of a warm, bold lipstick though. :) 

Anyway, if you like sheer glosses, then I think you will love to wear this, especially if you're planning to go to the beach and get a beautiful tan!

Laura Mercier Golden Honey Glow Illuminating Stick

Hello loves!

I'll be sharing more and more swatch posts from the products my sister sent me from Australia. Some of these are her preloved items which I happily accepted because, well, they're makeup! And most of them are things I can't afford for myself yet. Haha! And this product that I'll be sharing with you is one of them...

Laura Mercier Illuminating Stick

The shade is Golden Honey Glow.

My sister loves this brand. I do too if I only have the money to buy more from them. Haha! But I understand why she loves Laura Mercier so much. My favorite is the Secret Comouflage concealer and their tinted moisturizers.

I don't like cream products though so I am not overly excited with this product, but, summer is coming soon and the bronze look will surely be a hit again! Just look at the gorgeous color of this stick:

It does look like the color of honey with very fine shimmers. It's housed in this very classy, retractable tube. It really looks gorgeous, don't you think so?

Below is the swatch of the product:

It's creamy and it glided smoothly on my skin. It feels buttery smooth but still light to the touch! No greasy feeling at all! 

Here it is when blended. I love the bronzy glow and the shimmers as well. Blending the product was easy and you can use your fingers or a makeup brush. It really feels light on skin so you won't feel like you're wearing a cream product at all!

I do, however, have an NC30 skin and the product doesn't show much on my face. I don't apply too much though. I can't use it as a blush because I find it weird to have a too bronzed face right now (perhaps I can do that when summer is here). On the pic above, I applied mostly at the bottom of my cheekbones, where you usually put contours. I love the natural, dewy finish it gives. It looks so natural but I believe the color will pop-up more on lighter skin... or maybe I should just add more? But I don't really like adding so much cream products on my oily face. :P

So if you want a subtly, bronze glow, then you might want to check out this product. I think there are other shades available like the Golden Rose Glow which you can use as a blush. :D Anyway, that is all for tonight! :D
