September (2014) Haul—Because It's My Birth Month!

Hi dears!

Because it is my birth month, I spoiled myself by shopping all day last Saturday at SM Mall of Asia. I was the makeup artist of two of my friends who attended a cosplay event at SMX. The MIBF was also happening on that week so I also visited the booths of different bookstores and publishers. But I didn't buy any books—there were too many people and I didn't see any interesting art books. 

And by the way, the stuff I bought at MOA were discounted because it was their 3-day sale last weekend. Some of the products were already at 10-20% off and you get an additional 10% off when you reach Php 1,500.00. My purchases were over that price requirement so every product here that was bought from the department store's beauty section are 10% off.

So anyway, I just wanna share with you the new stuff I got. Some of them will be reviewed on future posts. :)

72-Piece Prismacolor Colored Pencils — Php 3,000.00

I bought this last Thursday actually... This is my ultimate splurge/birthday gift to myself. I've always wanted one and I kept holding back because it is quite pricey. But I think now that I've been working my butt off at my job and at my classes at grad school, I think I deserve this. :P

And here are the stuff I bought from SM Department Store:

Heroine Make Mineral BB Loose Powder in #02 Natural—Php 695.00

I really liked the texture when I tried this out during the launch a few weeks ago. :)

PIXY  Silky Fit Lipstick in Puppy Love Satin and Pinkish Peach Satin—Php 245.00 each

Some of my blogger friends told me that the lippies from Pixy are really good so I was convinced to try it out. I even bought two!

Maybelline Color Show Nail Polish in Crazy Berry – Php 99.00

Sally Hansen Moisturizing Nail Polish Remover—Php 225.00
Sally Hansen Big Matte Top Coat—Php 395.00
And a free nail polish remover pump!

The S.A. was really nice. I was just looking at the Maybelline Color Show polishes when she approached me. I wanted to get a matte top coat but she offered that if I buy a nail polish remover, I get the pump for free. I was like, "What the heck, I'll get that too. It's my birthday anyway!" LOL

Clio Gelspresso Waterproof Pencil Gel Liner in No. 12—Php 475.00
I wanted to see if their gel pencil liner is as good as the pen eyeliner that I like so much!

Ogx (Organix) Moroccan Curling Perfection Defining Cream—Php 499.00
Ogx (Organix) Hydrating Macadamia Oil—Php 499.00

I've read really good reviews on the brand so I wanted to try it out myself. I picked variants that I think would suit my long, colored, permed hair.

Foot Treat Anti Bacterial Foot Spray in Magnolia—Php 115.00
DermAid Moisturizing Cracked Heel Cream—Php 79.00

Marionnaud Eyelash Curler Refill—Php 20+

Johnson's Baby Bath—forgot the price :P

Veet Wax Strips for Normal Skin—Php 257.50 

And I also got various freebies just because my purchases amounted to Php 1k+.
A shirt, a small bag, and a sample of Vidal Sassoon Shampoo and Conditioner

I stopped by Beauty Bar as well and bought this makeup remover:
Nature by Canus All Natural Moisturizing Facial Cleansing Milk and Make-Up Remover—Php 280.00
Original price was Php 950.00.

Awesome deal, don't you think so too?

Karma Soap and Porridge (Oatmeal) Soap from Lush

I forgot the price and I've already thrown out the receipt. :P I just love the smell of these soaps so I wanted to pamper myself this month with soaps that are quite expensive for my budget. LOL

And those are my new babies! Feel free to comment below the ones you're interested on reading a review about! :)



  1. Happy birthday Dawn! Enjoy your shopping loot :D

  2. PS Never tried Porridge, what do you think? Is it good?

    1. It's smells super yummy and it's more for exfoliation because it has these oatmeal flakes to make it a little rough. I really like it. :)

  3. Happy birthday Dawn! Love your haul post, looks like a really great birthday treat for you. The pencils look really awesome!

    1. Thanks, Pat! The pencils really are super awesome! I'm very happy with them. :D
