Over the past few weeks, I have accumulated some new stuff so I decided to post a "collective haul" blog. Mind you, these items were not purchased all at once. ;)
A friend of mine sells cosmetics through her Facebook page called Beauty's Treasure. She had a sale a few weeks ago and I decided to buy some stuff from her. Among the items on sale were some NYX Cosmetics items. I bought my first ever NYX product from her months ago and since then, I have always loved NYX!
I was so happy that NYX Round Lipsticks were included in her sale for only Php 110! I have never tried NYX lippies before so I grabbed a few of these lippies. My first impression with these lipsticks is that they are so smooth! They smell good too! I want to collect NYX lipsticks from now on! Haha.
I also bought an eye shadow palette from the Caribbean Collection called "I Dream of Aruba". This palette cost me Php 235. For me, NYX eye shadows are great! They are highly pigmented, very blendable, and comes in a variety of wonderful colors. NYX Round Lipsticks normally retail for Php 160 - Php 180 while the eye shadow palette normally costs Php 450.

Chambord became my instant favorite, by the way!
To continue my enthusiasm for lipsticks, I also recently got 3 lipsticks from Nichido. These lipsticks are part of the Juicy Lips line and they only retail for Php 88!

My first impression with these lipsticks is that they are not as smooth as the NYX lipsticks. However, I still love the colors and I can use a lip balm first for smooth application.
The Landmark in Makati is having a Cosmetics Fair from October 1-31, 2011 and I got some goodies from this fair!!!! Cosmetics, nail polishes and other beauty items are all on sale! I couldn't resist 'coz some of the items were 20% off!
Of course I got some nail related items! I got some nail stickers for Php 29.75 each and this set of 6 colored nail files retail for only Php 19.75.
Caress Nail Polishes retail for Php 22.75 each
From left to right: Purple Frost, Real Tan, Sweet 16, Ophra and Cyclamen Pink
I also saw this cracked nail polish and I almost fainted! I have been looking for something like this for quite some time but the ones that are made by China Glaze and other imported brands are not readily available in the Philippines. So I was really happy when I saw this. They didn't have that much variety in terms of colors though. This retail for Php 34.75.

During the fair, I also got some cosmetic products...
I got a concealer from E.L.F in the shade Honey (Php 129.75). I also got the Aqua Gel Foundation from Maybelline which originally retails for Php 349 but I got it for Php 239! Such a great deal, right?! Finally, I also got some cosmetic wedges which I can use in applying my foundation (Php 59.75).
Whew! That collective haul was kinda massive! Haha.
I'm going to try the products in this haul right away and I might post a review of some of these products soon.
I'm really sorry about the quality of the photos. I was only using my camera phone. :(
Till my next blog post!
