my first makeup swap + bb cream samples

I remember how i commented on Cris' post about how i would love to try the Victoria's Secret Very Sexy Mosaic highlighter. Little did i know that this lovely girl would actually let me get my first hand experience on mosaic highlighter.

& let me tell you...i love it!

This is what she sent me!

Everything looks so nice!
  • Victoria's secret mosaic highlighter
  • some product samples
  • Oriflame face cream
  • Avon shadesticks
  • an Eyeko 3in1 cream sample (finally!*excited*)
  • NYC Lip liner
  • Revlon lipstick in soft silver red
  • NYC lipstick in smooch
  • an eyeshadow palette
  • Mike & Ike lip balm
  • Kings & Queens Body Milk in Cinnamon Orange (the one in clinique lotion bottle)
  • Bourjois Chocolate Shower Gel (the one in the smaller clinique bottle)
I so love the scent of Bourjois Chocolate shower gel, it reminds me a lot of the candy Tootsie roll... It brought back memories of childhood! I haven't tried it yet..i will definitely!

I haven't tried Revlon lipstick yet because i remember when i was a kid i always play with my mom's lipstick & i always see i guess it just made me think of Revlon only for me...But with what she sent me, im pretty sure i'll be buying Revlon lippies now. I love it!

Thanks a lot,hun!
It took a month before i got it, but now that i have it, i just totally forgot all about the waiting time....

one package down...4 more to go...
waiting is so hard to do!

On to some of the BB Cream samples that i have.
The other day i bought some samples & it was delivered today via Air21...'kuya' (older brother) Air21 & I are already on good terms because he keeps on dropping by my place. I love receiving packages!

I have heard that Lioele is good at controlling oil...So just to see if it will work on me, i decided to buy some samples..& of course also a couple others...

So, here it is:
  • Lioele BB cream
  • Lioele fresh sun screen
  • Lioele Blooming shimmer pearl base
  • Lioele AC Control Lotion (does AC means ACne?!)
  • Lioele AC Control Toner
  • Skin 79 Diamond BB Cream
  • Skin Food Agave Cactus sun Bb Cream
  • Missha Perfect Cover bb cream in 21
  • Missha Perfect Cover bb cream in 23
The Lioele toner & lotion is so cute i don't even wanna use it. The bottles are so small...its so unforgiveably cute!

I ordered a couple more BB creams from BRTC...but i dunno when ill be able to get it..

This is all the result of my acne...i need to do something with it..until now i don't wear makeup as much as i can. I just hope that i'll be able to find a good BB Cream for me.

Well, that's it for now..

@ nikki
she's really great!
im glad that my first swap is with cris

i hope so too
i know that i need to do something about my acne now
i don't want it to get worse

@ verina
i just heard that lioele is good at oil control that's why i wanted to try it first before buying a full size

Sherry said...

wow. heard alot bout bb cream, how much it cost?

~tHiAmErE~ said...

@ shobe
na inlove nga ko e..hehe
ang cute kasi!
i hope i'll be able to find a good bb cream
same with you,girl!

~tHiAmErE~ said...

@ sherry
i think bb creams in full size would be a bit expensive, but many people said that it's really good for the skin.

im guessing it usually ranges from $30 to $60
that's why i wanted to try some samples first before buying full sizes

My-My said...

I've been really curious about make up swaps. I need to try it one day.

enjoy your goodies. especially those BB creams. ooOOoooh! those are nice!

rhaindropz said...

dear, i like the mosaic blush =) ♥♥♥

☆Anastacia☆ said...

Such a nice swap! The VS highlighter looks really nice!
Woooa! Where did you got Lioele stuffs? I can't find it here in Korea.
Hope the BB cream will works for ya, actually I love that too :)

Jbreezybaby said...

xoladiihoneyxo said...

wow, great swap and the Lioele packaging looks really pretty!!! haha. *AHEM!* You weren't suppose to be spending money for a while from last time we talked!!!! lol. tsk tsk tsk!!! What's up with all these hauls! Yet, they're nice hauls so I don't know what to say. hahahahaha! I hope the BB cream is good for you =] I heard it's great.. too bad it's not for me since it only comes in two shades and I'm really tan during the Spring/Summer time so........... hahaha. won't work for me!

~tHiAmErE~ said...

@ my -my
me too
it was just a 'coincidence' that i got into it & im glad that i did!
cris is just so nice
i love her!

me too!
its so pretty!

~tHiAmErE~ said...

@ anastacia
actually i just bought it from Ebay
i guess she is a korean too that's here in the philippines.
i hope it will work keeping my fingers crossed on these BB Creams

@ Jbreezybaby
BB Creams are supposed to 'heal' your skin & acts like a foundation...& with my current state, i need to do something with my acne.

im not sure where you can get it in US, but i know that there is a Missha store somewhere..
or you can check Missha's website (USA)

~tHiAmErE~ said...

my wallet is already cursing me because it is getting thinner...but then since its for my acne so i try to bend my rules..hehe


Tamara said...

*drools*... Now I know what will be next on my WL! ;)

Pammy said...

You got pretty items on the swap. TheVS product looks pretty. :)

~tHiAmErE~ said...

i hope you'll be able to get some for you too
& i will wait for your review

it is!
i like how pretty it looks when i mix all of the colors..such a pretty highlighter!

imlee said...

nice stuff you got!! lucky you =)

hoping your bb cream search will come to an have a looot of samples there

cheers! =)

~tHiAmErE~ said...

@imlee rather buy samples than buy full size immediately..
bb cream is not cheap so its better to try as many samples as i can so that my hunt for a good bb cream will be successful

Sherry said...

sis good act on buying samples first :) this way you will know if its suitable :)

*Nehs* said...

wow! very nce swap! bb cream madness!!! :D

~tHiAmErE~ said...

@ sherry
im not willing to spend hundred of bucks yet...
i would if i know that it is already my perfect shade

@ nehs
i need to do something to my!
& i think bb cream will help me at the same time i can go back to wearing makeup na din...

Cris said...

Yay for my swap finally reaching you ^_^!
The men's skincare samples are for your significant other ;) (I've always wanted to swap with somebody who has one so I could pass them on, lol). & I'm so glad you liked the Revlon :), I love the formula but that colour just didn't work on me - but I thought it would on you :D.
Thanks again for swapping with me ^_^!!!

~tHiAmErE~ said...

@ cris
