Weekend Haul: Etude House again + Ever Bilena Matte Lipstick

I decided to start blogging exactly a week after my last post because when i checked how many posts i have just made for the first quarter of this year it made me realize how lazy i have been blogging. I'm sorry if i'm not able to update my blog regularly as i plan to.

I just have a lot on my plate lately. I think i really should buy a netbook if only to help me blog more often. Though i still prefer to use desktops when doing heavy computer work but netbooks would be a lot more convenient,ne? Well, i'll just have to wait & see...

I went to Sm manila last weekend because i just need to buy a gift for Walter because we are about to celebrate our 8th anniversary this March 23. Neither did i know that they are having their 3 day sale. I didn't know if i felt relief or annoyance because knowing that it's a sale period so the temptation to buy things is very overwhelming. I decided that i will not be buying any "unnecessary things" for the time being.

I gave myself a maximum of 30 minutes only inside the mall because if i not i might add more things on my shoping cart than i what i had intended to buy. Luckily, i was able to stick to my 30 minute limit but i wasn't really successful. hehe....

But hey! 30 minutes is really a record-breaking time limit for me inside the mall because we, ladies, could spend the whole day browsing the mall,ne? This time no nail polishes..hehe!

Anyway, i only visited Etude House because just to buy an eyebrow pencil. I remember seeing the brow pencil & it looks kinda nice. So i went there with just the intention of buying the pencil... but when i saw the Miss Tangerine collection i got curious. I'm not a fan of orange/tangerine color but it just looks cute. I was thinking of not buying anything from the collection but when i saw the lipbalm, i decided to buy it.

The SA said that it's a color changing lip tint. I haven't tried any color-changing lip tint yet & there's always a first time! Then i asked if they have any water-proof eyeliner pencil & he recommended the Proof 10 auto pencil. I like the Proof 10 primer so maybe the proof 10 liner would also be good. Then i asked if they do have the cleansing oil, they said they only have the one from the ----- line.

I asked what was the Baking Powder mineral water is for. He said that it's just for cleansing.. At first i thought of not buying it since i still have the Cleansing Water but he said that he even uses it & he love it! With that strong recommendation then who am i to ignore?! Anyway, i have tried the Baking Powder facial wash & it smells nice so i added it on my basket...& of course, the brow pencil..hehe

They are so nice to give me a free Moistfull mask with my purchase.

I was about to go out of the mall when i passed by Ever Bilena when i saw that they still have the Matte lipstick so i bought 2 matte lipstick from EB. I have to say that the red lipstick is to die for! I love red lippies so i'm glad that they still have the Love That Red shade!

30 minutes...that's all it took me to go shopping last Saturday but i already felt tired. I guess i'm really getting old already.. hahaha!

I already have a lot of product reviews that are left on my drafts to be finished. I'll get to them one by one, hunnies. Next in line is my new MLBB lipstick!

Hope you all had a good start for your week,sweeties!
