I had a bad day...
Just like what the title says..it's about the Customs Taxes...then my haul
1st part is the ranting part...
im sorry about this but i need to do this so to let my anger out..
As what i said yesterday, today i picked the packages waiting for me...I have 4 packages...& i was so excited!
That was up until the custom's officer 'milked' my wallet!
I know that every packages would be 'charged' Php 35 each (that is for the post office)...neither did i know that the customs tax is different from that...
For pinays who do online shopping...guess how much i paid for?
I paid a whooping Php 1,204 (more less $26)!!!!! its ridiculous!
What the f*ck?! I could buy myself a DUO lash glue with that!
I almost promised not to go online shopping anymore!
Im so pissed off that i can't even bear to speak for fear that i would make a fool of myself if im gonna shout in front of the man with all the people waiting to pick up their packages...
have to control my temper...
now im feeling more relaxed...
My total purchases (based on the declared amount on the packages) came to a total of $51...& i was charged Php 1,000+!!!
I know that if you exceed $50 you have to pay for a certain amount but i was not expecting something as big as that amount!
Since i don't have a choice...that even if i asked them over & over it would just result to me being angrier, i just paid & went out as fast as i can!
To think that i have to handle the shipping & handling
the paypal transaction (when changing currencies & the one that the seller charges me-though the latter is not that often)
the Post Office fee
it's a wonder why some people don't do international online shopping!
Again, for pinays who do online shopping, if i were you, try to limit your total purchases until $30/month...Wait until you got your packages before you go online shopping again..
im still fuming up until now so i'll try not to go into details & ill just go straight to my haul..
On to happy news..
These are my packages
Two from Makeup Mix Shop, another from theallnaturalface from Etsy & one from Miss Yaya. I'll provide swatches & reviews of it some other day.
Let's go first with my Makeup Mix Shop haul.... I ordered one when they had the memorial day sale...& one when they introduced the ELF line on their product list.
First off is the memorial day haul...
I ordered some pigments from Miss Toma because i know that her pigments are great. It's $0.50 each...So i got the Makeup Masala pigments plus the NYX pigments..also the Ecotools eyeshadow brushes & the NYX lip balm...
Next is the ELF haul
I ordered brushes, liquid liners & the studio blush powder...
Then the one that Miss Yaya sent me when i join the Doll Contest...
OMG! OMG! OMG!
i never expected that she would send me something too..
i feel so loved...
& now i have my very own Victoria's Secret Beauty Rush!
thank you so much miss yaya!
im so happy!
*tears in the eyes*
& last but not the least...
The Etsy haul...from theallnaturalface
After knowing the shop from Fifi's post, i clicked the link & let Paypal do the talking...& boy was i happy!
How can i not be? Look at the the samples that she sent me

So even if i had a bad start, in the end, my haul completed my day...
Im definitely still gonna go online shopping..but i've learned my lesson!
