i need some help...+ small haul


Yesterday, "Kuya" Air 21 arrived to deliver a package. It's what i bought from one of my favorite E-bay seller~duchessac. She sells cosmetics & dresses. Most are used but it's ok with me because i get to test imported products for a fraction of the price.

After all im frugal & will not willingly let go of my hard-earned money for something that i'm not sure will even work on pretty sure you will agree with me on that score,right?

I admit that i am always on the lookout for blogsales since i get to buy stuff cheaper & since we all are beauty bloggers we know how to take care of our cosmetics,right? plus the fact that there are also good brands out there that we don't to spend a lot of money on...although im guilty of splurging out too...(-__-") but not that much!

Anyways, i bought
  • MAC Quick Frost pigment
  • Benefit Dr. Feelgood
  • & she included a freebie! yay for that! a pair of hoop earrings
This is my first MAC pigment. I believe that when it comes to pigments there's not much difference at all from high-end brands to cheap ones. I have NYX Ultra Pearl Mania & they are pigmented too! I have tried Careline Loose Eyeshadow & i also love them!

Going back, it's a part of the LE Rushmetal Collection last July 2007


Anyhow, the container is huge! I know for a fact that i won't be able to finish this. This is how it looked like

See how full the container is?

Then this is a swatch of it
It's not exactly a white shimmer oppose to what you can see on the container, but it's a light cream that's very sheer & shimmery. It almost has no pigmentation at all! Too bad that you can't see the green shimmers which makes it so pretty!

It's a great highlighter & also as an all-over color. It will be great to use on your decolletage if you are going on a night out.

As for me, i think i'll be mostly mixing this on a primer to have a shimmery base. Since i have the 88 matte & satin, this would definitely put the much needed shimmer on my colors if i would choose to make a shimmery look!

As for the Benefit Dr Feelgood, i'll keep it first because i'll doing a review on it sometime. it will take weeks though.

I am still waiting for another package, i already bought one of the local Obagi that i heard so much about. I hope it will really help me in my acne. i actually can't wait to try it. Now, im deep cleaning my face so that when i use it it would sink right in my skin.

Now, i have a little question for you,ladies...
Some of you might have tried using a sealant already. What eyeliner/make-up sealant have you tried? I just bought Shelaq a couple of days ago & i actually don't know what to expect. Now don't go into the "Stupid girl! buying things you don't know about..." hehehe...I have an idea how it does work, but i think i just don't see beauty bloggers blogging about it that's why it got me so curious.

Another one...i'm planning to get a parfum for my bf this christmas. I just don't know what..I don't want to drag him in the mall just to go sniff at testers because if we do he would already have an idea what i would give which would just kill the surprise. Any suggestions for me,ladies?

Im thinking of either Paco Rabanne Pour Homme or Burberry... (-__-")

I know for a fact that he loves the one that i gave him before...the Andy Warhol, but i can't find it here in the Philippines...ekkk!
Help me!

Will update you on the local obagi after i have really tested it out.

Have a great day,hunnies!
Jaa ne~!

If you can't find the Andy Warhol perfume, then you have no choice but to look for it online. ;)

Have you tried asking recommendations from guy friends?

The MAC pigments freakin' huge. That'll surely last you a lifetime. ^_^

DinaXYYan said...

btw, i tag you :)

If he seriously adore that cologne than buy it online =] Wasn't there a site that has sales going on for perfume and guy's cologne? Strawberry something... lol.

I got my brother a Calvin Klein cologne and he use it on special occasions but use axe or something else as body spray for daily use.

Maybe you can go to the mall by yourself? Nothing wrong with going to the mall by yourself! Or have a girls day out but really, yalls are looking for Christmas presents at the same time. lol. I'm sure some blog friends are willing to meet up with you too =]

Cute new goods!

Hi there, great post and blog, I just stumbled upon you!

I suggest you get the bf Gucci by Gucci. Its as much a gift for you as it is for him. ;)

Fifi said...

Wow you got a MAC pigment! I love them! I got them on sample size jars and I don't even know how to use them up! lol

Hmm perfumes can be tricky sometimes. It really depends on one's preference. But I love BVLGARI BLV on my bf (the blue bottle). Good luck on your gift hunting! :)

Eve said...

OMG I loveeee burburry. It smells so nice. I also like le Male by Gautier.

I love your haul!

Blovet Beauty said...

i actually thought that was the vanilla pigment !! very pretty color~

Miss Shopcoholic said...

nice haul esp the MAC pigment, if ever i'll buy myself one I'd prefer neutral colors like that for an eyeshadow base or highlighter.. how much did you buy it on ebay?

Ghie said...

I hope you make a review local obagi co'z I am also tempted to buy.

Crystal Gale said...

great haul! Good luck on your new skin care, I hope it does help you with your acne ;)

About your question about sealeant, I have tried Aromaleigh eyeliner sealant and it makes my eyeshadows act as a liquid liner and help it stays put for more than 8hrs without smudging! Bare Escentuals has one too and it works great. I think better than Aromaleigh's :)

Good luck with your new skincare regime! I know what it's like to have acne, trust me. Something that's working well for me is aloe vera.
Nice haul, too, the pigment is pretty, but of course I agree that you don't necessarily have to buy MAC to get good quality =)

Lisa Kate said...

Very pretty choices! I agree that Mac pigs are a bit...chunky.

I'm a sealant junkie, for reals. I agree that Aromaleigh's is good, but it dries super fast. I really, really highly recommend Exposed Organics Nectar. I did a review on it somewhere lol. It's my ultimate favorite, and it gives you enough time to smudge and made of all natural things so it doesn't irritate my sensitive eyes. Plus, its super cheap too!

Pammy said...

Nice haul, dear. :) And I hope your new skin care stuff works for you. :)
