Last Hurrah for July 2012 -- Contact Lens HAUL 7-31-12

Hello,

so I offered to get my Tante Raquel to get her 3 pairs of contacts in exchange for beauty products from Japan ;D

So it took me almost 2 hours to find the colors she wanted and I got her colors blue, hazel brown and gray.

I got 2 colors (Hazel and Blue) from Expressions color somewhere in Festival Mall @PHP350/pair good for 3 months:



Here's a picture of the gray ones I bought from EO:







I also got a pair of those gray ones for myself as well as these in -0.50: (I tried them on and they're gorgeous!) Plus, they were all on SALE @ Executive Optical !!! Too bad it was the last day today. I spent PHP420/pair which is good for 6 months.


Will probably make looks with these 2 new colors.
I only buy green or gray contacts because these suit my dark brown eye color - all other contacts I've tried ended up looking fake. So well, enjoy!

Till next time.
Tschüssi! xx

I WANT: electronic facial brush

Hi there,

there are so many things I want to own, have, use, abuse, etc.

I still want this... in the exact same color... ( clairsonic mia in turquoise ) (PHP~6000 not available in the Philippines --- sadly)

I am also contemplating on getting this if I cannot have the above facial brush...  (PHP2500 - online)
( SIGMA BEAUTY Cleansing and Polishing Tool Facial Cleansing and Body Exfoliation )

I am currently using manual facial brushes from Marionnaud (PHP99) and The Body Shop (PHP150).

I have these manual facial brushes because they are very affordable compared to the ones I wanna have. So which one is better?

My sister has one facial massager from Neutrogena but she uses for something else (don't ask!)
I was also looking to find one of those but I was never in luck. I also do not know the price. Anyone?

Till next time.

Contemplating on my next beauty HAUL // BLOG-posts

Hi,

so there are so many good items that I would wanna have but I already have spent PHP1500 on a pair of animal print peep toe wedge sandals from Payless :) for next payday.


Well, I also want to get a beauty blender...


In Suesh ATC they are selling the one on the very right @PHP550 per piece. Kim just bought one today and we can't wait to test it out before I actually purchase my own one.
They have them in different colors from pink, purple, blue, baby blue and super bright neon-ish orange... Let's see if the effects are better and how long this product actually lasts. If someone sends me one to review, why not? Just let me know ;)

What I already purchased?
Well, I had a mini-haul @ Lush ATC (Body Conditioner and Lip tint where I spent over PHP1500) and bought my 100ml Body & Face Therapy Morroco Argan Oil :) at Rustan's ATC. (PHP1450)

I am still testing these products to find out if they're good buys or not.
So far the beauty conditioner from Lush can be used every other day my skin feels soft and moisturized and super good smelling after. The Lip tint is also a winner. :)
The oil smells so good I wanna rub it on my whole body but then I would be wasting so much of this rare beauty oil. I have heard so many raves about it and I will definitely repurchase them when they are used up.

So what I noticed about the body spritz from Lush, they last super long... I had tested a sporty scent on my hand and the longer it stayed on my skin, the better it smelled even after washing a cup of coffee that I used that day with dish washing liquid where the smell was still there... WOW! I may buy it if I have enough.

What else.... I am so far content with the stuff I have now... I may be looking to re-purchase the concealer pencil from THE BODY SHOP in 04 which will cost me PHP750... let's see when I finished up all the concealers I have now... I still have the Revlon Colorstay Concealer in Medium (PHP~800) and the Etude House Suprise Essence Concealer in #02 (PHP~400) as well as the under eye concealers that can be used all over the face from Garnier BB Eye Roll On (PHP~300) and the Maybelline New York under eye concealer in light. I also still have the concealer palette from Suesh that I just used a couple of times (PHP~1000). It cakes a bit so you have to put less product if you wanna avoid it.

Shu Uemura: If I finished the sample mini bottle that I received from the event and it worked really well on my skin, then maybe? Is it really worth spending PHP6200 for a 450ml bottle that would last you a year? I still have a few makeup removers that I would wanna use up. For instance, THE BODY SHOP Camomile Gentle Eye Makeup Remover (PHP600+ for 250ml) --- I only have the 60ml which I received for free from my previous PHP5000++ THE BODY SHOP haul. I also use FM makeup remover (PHP475 for 200ml) and my Bifesta Anti Aging Makeup remover / skin toner (PHP377).

Time will tell. Let me know if you want any detailed reviews on these. I am also thinking of doing reviews on comparing the stuff I have for example eyeliners, foundations, etc.

Just comment and I will see what I can do. ;)

Till next time.

What my fave iPhone app does

It's called morebeaute2 when you search for it on the apple store. :-)

It's a photo enhancing app that makes skin brighter and flawless. I just love it!!!

See below before and after photos. I use these for my "steal my look" pictures when I think I have too much blemishes and I want them evened out...

See the difference? I'm not wearing any makeup here :-)

Enjoy!
