Back with Hauls! Warning: Picture Heavy

I'm back! And I am so excited to share my latest haul! I did splurge on this one. I was supposed to be on a no-buy mode but I couldn't keep myself from buying anything after depriving myself for almost 2 weeks. So I decided that a no-buy won't be best for me but rather a control over whatever I am going to spend on. I should start shopping wisely instead. So I promise this is the last of my impulsive shopping. :P

The Soap Factory Tomato and Halo Halo Fiesta Soaps
- Each soap costs 99

Chanel Blushes - Joues Contraste in Tea Rose and Irreelle Blush in In Love

Chanel Joues Contraste Tea Rose
- A pretty pale rose/pink shade with very subtle shimmer.
- Buildable
- May be a little too light when swatched but looks very pretty and natural when applied.
- Got this from my mom's makeup stash.
- SRP PHP2350

Chanel Irreelle Blush in In Love

- I am definitely In Love with this blush!
- I cannot really describe it but I think it is a coral-pink shade with subtle shimmer.
- A little more expensive than JC, I got it for PHP2500.

Swatches: In Love and Tea Rose

Kanebo Coffret D'or Foundation Refill
- Since Revue was phased out, I was told by the Kanebo SA that Coffret D'or replaced it so I thought I should give it a try as I really like Kanebo foundation. This is 100 bucks cheaper than Revue for PHP2000. Shade is BE-C, same as my Revue shade.

Stila Lip Glaze in Starfruit and Stila Lip Color in Pixie

MAC 188 Brush
- Got it for PHP2050 due to the price increase.
- bought it mainly for blushes.

Garnier Brightening Eye Roll-On

Alba Botanica Terratints in Bloom

Maybelline Volume Express Black Mascara

L'oreal Blush Delice Shimmer of Hope & Milani Glimmer Stripes in Bronze Glimmer

Dr. Bronner's Magic Soap
- I forgot the exact price but is costs in between PHP300-PHP400 at Healthy Options for a small bottle.
- It effectively cleaned my brushes. :P

Shawill Blush No. 3
- A cheap blush I got for PHP138 at Watson's.
- Quality is good for the price.
- Pigmented and pretty blush.

Missha Cleansing Oil + M Signature Foundationm (freebie)

Zen Zest Martini

4U2 Magic Blushes
- BOGO for PHP424

VOV Show Case Ball on Cheek
- Got this for PHP450 on eBay
- I read somewhere that this is the cheaper and Korean version of Guerlain Meterorites but I really can't tell since I do not have the latter and I do not intend to purchase it. :P

Random purchases:
- Garnier Light facial wash
- Cetaphil cleanser
- Pantene 3-Minute Miracle Treatment
- Off Insect Repellent Spray
- Vaseline lotion
- Caronia clear nail polish
- Colgate 360 toothbrush (pink)
- Kleenex Tissue pack
- Cleene cotton balls
- J&J Baby Milk Bath refill
- Charmee feminine wipes
- Time of the month necessities
- Schick razors

Saizen Goodies

- A must-buy from Saizen!
- Review to follow ;)

Charcoal Soap
- Review to follow ;)

The Face Shop Nail polish Remover (Bubblegum) and Pack Brush

Fanny Serrano Silky Coral Blush
- The blush is a pretty pink-peach on its own. But I hate how it tried to look like the Chanel Irreelle blush.

See what I mean?

Fanny Serrano Foundation in Mocha and True Light Liquid Lipstick in Light Berry

Foundation in Mocha
- I first used this when I was still in college, a freshman or a sophomore perhaps and I remember liking it.
- I like that it has a matte finish and matches my skin tone really well.
- I like that it provides heavy coverage.
- I find myself liking it again. :P

Now the lip color is weird because this is the first time I ever encountered a lip gloss that has a light on.

See what I mean?

I find this lip gloss a little runny and staying power isn't that great but this is perfect if you want nude lips with a hint of pink. :P

So there you have it. My recent haul. :)

I hope you like it! I'll be back for reviews. Ta!


  1. ganda ng channel blushes!!.same sila ng FS nga..awts..nice haul sis..revview naman sa vov balls and sa stripe blushes mwuah..glad your back

  2. wow!! welconme back sis,

  3. Shobe, sure! I'll review the balls kaso medyo di ko ma-take yung scent, I end up sneezing an sneezing. :P

    Cha, I am loving the Chanel blushes too. I keep staring at them. :) I already have Stila swatches, will post them soon. :)

  4. and you're definitely back!

    with a vengeance haha!

  5. Lel, tee-hee! :P told yah (on GT), it was like I just got out of prison and saw make up for the first time when I was at Rustan's. :P

  6. di ko kinaya ang chanel blushes. yun palan mga limang libo na! hahaha.

    i'd love to have that in love blush kasi prohibitive ang price. 2500php? parang sobra na ata. :p

    korek sis sol, back with a vengeance! :p

    and sis, ginaya din ng fanny serrano lipgloss na yan yung GOSH LIGHT LIPGLOSS. It was sold in beauty bar at around 700php+ way back in 2006. pinull out na ata.

    maganda ang FS products kaso walang originality. :/

  7. Martha, hehe. Hindi na ako magno-no buy. Napapahiya lang ako kasi palpak ako dun. :P

    Hindi na ako ulit bibili ng Chanel na blush or other products unless mapanaginipan ko. :P Iwas na din ako sa Rustan's sa Gateway kasi magkakalapit ang Chanel, Stila, and Shiseido. :P

    I actually asked yung SA na binilihan ko nung FS blush kung ginagaya ba ni Tita Fanny si Chanel. Nag-OO naman sya! Haha! :P

  8. Nehs, the result of no-buy for 2 weeks. Mas masama. Haha! :P

    Khymm, thanks. Natatakot ako sa price nilang lahat. :D

  9. wow grabee,, napagastos ka nanaman sis. :) pareview naman ng FS blushes. thanks. ;)

  10. Trizh, oo nga eh. Bad bad. :P

    Sure, will review it one of these days. :)

  11. nice haul,sis!
    the FS's packaging is somewhat the same with others,right?
    just like their eyeshadows..
    it's like the Lancome set..
    & also the blush

    i think ever bilena also has that light on gloss..
    i think its pretty a way

    how's your house,sis?
    have you restored your house na?

  12. Thiamere, I think it's aiming to look like Chanel? Based na rin on the answer that the FS gave me. :P

    EB naman is trying to look like MAC.

    I don't dig the lights though. :)

    Our house is okay naman na, been doing major clean up for the past couple of weeks now. Daming nasira na stuff na older than me pa. Even my dad's buddha broke in 2. I just made a joke out of it na nahati na sya in 2, nakangiti pa rin. :P Thank you, dear. Will ship your items next week na, finally!!!

  13. whoa!! blushes!!again.. wow!! pammy,., where is soap factory located??

  14. Wow! That really is a massive haul :) I guess I should check out Saizen too. I heard they have this really good charcoal pack.

    Love your blog btw :)

  15. Donna, there is one in Megamall Atrium and SM North or The Block? :P

    Of course, blushes again. :)

    Kaye, thank you. Go check out Saizen. You'll find a lot of cheap goodies that have good quality. ;)

  16. LOL sis! You made me laugh, hail to the blush queen! talagang MAC188 mainly for blush talaga ha? hahaha

  17. That was one heck of a haul! Interesting you say that the Saizen foundation is a must buy, can't wait for your review!

  18. Nikki, yeah. But I won't use it on uber pigmented blushes like NARS Taos and NARS Crazed and Kryolan too because it might get stained just like the 187. :P

    Nina, it is really a very nice foundation. The price is cheap yet the quality isn't cheap at all. ;)

  19. Wow, nice haul. btw, VOV showcase ball on cheek is so gorgeous. Cant wait for your review on this one :)

  20. Charry, thanks. Will review it this week for you and Shobe. :)

  21. WOW! Your haul is to die for! :) Have always wanted to try Chanel cosmetics because of Audrey Hepburn and you know, Coco Chanel herself. I'm inggit :) I think you deserve to treat yourself after all that's happened. Can't wait for the reviews :)

  22. Teeyah, Audrey Hepburn and Chanel? :P You're right. It's a treat indeed. :)
