Mango Haul.

A few pieces I picked up at Mango

I noticed that I am drawn more to Mango now than Zara, which used to be my favorite shop. And you probably noticed how much I love shorts, denim in particular. 

where do you normally shop?

new babies from Urban Decay.

UD palettes are my favorite. They're pigmented, great value for money and the packaging are just cute! Having said that, I was surprised to find out that haven't posted about my latest addition which I got in UK.

Got these babies at Debenhams.
UD Book of Shadows Vol 4, Primer Potions

How cool is this palette? It contains 16 eyeshadows, one Liquid Liner, Primer Potion and Mascara. The palette also contains a mini speaker and a card containing codes that can be scanned to watch vid tutorials using the palette. This is my 1st Book of Shadows from UD.

I know that there are several primers out there, but these ones from UD are my favorite. I have a few mini primers that came with the palettes I bought, but being a hoarder I bought all 4 (Original, Sin, Greed & Eden)... because it's the new packaging :)

I also bought the 15 year Anniverssary Eyeshadow Collection, but I haven't taken photos yet, that will be in a separate post.

Is it just me or are you a sucker for cute packaging? Do you always get UD palettes specially the limited edition ones?

(not so) Recent cosmetic haul.

A long forgotten haul. These babies were bought from Singapore Changi airport, but on different occassions. 

The Bobbi Brown goodies were bought when I was departing from SG to London. And the MAC ones from SG to Manila.

BB cream in Light, Corrector Light Bisque
MAC 210 brush, Sumptuous Olive e/s, #7 Lash
I would love to buy more, but after my Uk trip, I think I have far too much and no longer need any.

Do you like shopping at the airport/s?


Empties: October 2011

Hello! :) 

Thought I'd post on my progress on emptying products I bought in the past. 

Left to Right:

Selsun Blue- as mentioned in the past, I used to have a problem with shampoos as I have really sensitive scalp which always resulted in me having dandruff until I found Selsun Blue. I only use it thrice a week and used different shampoos the rest of the week. No more dandruff for me. Repurchase? Definitely!

NeutrogenaEye Makeup Remover- my favorite eye makeup remover. Reviewed here. Repurchase? Yes.

Nivea Goodbye Cellulite- this was my sister's, she doesnt use it so instead of throwing it away, I used it. I dont have noticeable cellulites to begin with so I didnt see any visible results. Repurchase? No. 

Kerastase Bain-Oleo Relax Shampoo- Its a good smelling product, but I didnt see any noticeable results. This also cost a fortune here in the Philippines. Repurchase? No. Replaced it with Pure Beauty Shampoo. 

Korres Laurel & Echinea Anti Dandruff Shampoo- This was bought many months ago because of the battle I had with dandruff. This doesnt help at all. I dont like the smell either. Repurchase? No.

Dry Idea Deodorant- i love the powder fresh scent. Repurchase? Maybe. Replaced it with Nivea Invisible for B&W Roll on.

Pure Beauty Treatment Hair Mask- I use this as my daily hair conditioner. It makes my hair smooth and soft. And I so love the scent. Repurchase? Definitely!

The products emptied are mainly haircare. I am very eager to finish up some makeup products. I must say that I'm doing well when it comes to emptying bathroom/haircare products.

How well are you doing with P10P or emptying products?

Vacation's over.

Windsor Castle
Buckingham Palace
Leeds Castle
Universal Studios, Singapore
I'm back in Manila now, after my 2months vacay. After UK, I flew back to Singapore with my Aunt, sister and cousin to meet my hubby and spend a week with my brother . It was a very tiring week for all of us. It was all about my little cousin. But it was great bonding with family!

The whole UK experience was something both my sister and I enjoyed greatly. The castles, parks, and shopping was incredible.

But this coming December, I will be flying back to UK to spend 3weeks with my Aunt's family and my brother, unfortunately, hubby can't come because of his work. 

more posts to come..

Monthly Favorites: October

I'm a few days late on my monthly favorites. There aren't many products I'm using right now because of the breakout I experienced many weeks ago.

A few products that made it to my monthly faves.

Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation (53 Beige Clair)- I love the light coverage of this foundation and the glowing complexion it gives. The fruity smell is amazing!

Vichy Normaderm (03)- I use this to cover the dark pimple marks. This is a bit dark on my skin, but this was the only shade sold at Guardian in Singapore. The retractable pen makes it easier to apply directly on the problem area.

Carmex Moisture Plus- love the scent, coverage and the minty taste.

Carmex Misturising Lipbalm- I apply this after brushing my teeth. Leaves my lips moiturised and prepped for lipstick application.

MAC Carbon Eyeshadow- I use this not as an eyeshadow but as a liner. The past few weeks, I was not keen on wearing any makeup because of the annoying breakout I had, but this product gives life to my eyes :)

Collection 2000 Cream Puff (Fairy Cake 3)- The velvety soft matt finish is love. But I always exfoliate my lips first otherwise it will accentuate dry lips. It also smells amazing!

Bourjois Bronzing Powder- I liked this not only because of the cute packaging, the color payoff & smell is great.

This month's favorites are composed of drugstore finds and mostly are great smelling products.

more lipbalms.

I can't get enough of them -- lipbalms!

Love the packaging, texture and the SPF!

the one from MAC isn't a lipbalm :) it's a brow pencil.

and lastly...a free mascara from Bobbi Brown. Loves it!

What's your favorite lipbalm?

a quick trip to Boots.

A really quick trip to Boots didn't do much damage to my wallet. I got a few things I think I needed, mostly for my lips.

I'm a big fan of Carmex, so when they released the Moisture Plus lipbalms, I was so eager to try but always unlucky to find it in Boots until the other day. I can't decide which shade to get, so I just decided to get all three. I've only tried the peach one, the texture was divine!

Anatomicals -- is a brand I haven't tried yet. Since the price tag is cheaper, thought i should try it as well. The packaging is catchy for me.

Other few bits for the hair like the Tangle Teezer and clips/bands from Scunci & Boots.

Queen of the desert

I'm not, Priscilla is. 

It was a fun day yesterday at London cos we watched Priscilla, Queen of the desert, a westend/broadway show at Palace Theatre.

The characters were all great specially the guy who portrayed Felicia Jollygoodfellow. The show was hilarious, the casts all sang very well. It was such a great show! If you haven't watched it yet, I strongly recommend that you do.

We ended the day with a great dinner at Benares, an Indian Resto, also in London. The food was lovely, and the service was amazing.

If you are living or visiting the UK, i recommend that you visit Benares and watch Priscilla, you will surely enjoy it.

I had a great time!


And we're haulin.
