It's NOT a haul! *AHEM*

I've probably said this many times already that I'm 'on a no-buy'. But every single time the results proved the aforementioned phrase was a epic fail. LOL To give you some insight into my uncurable obsession and hobby, here's what I did today: sorting out a CP (custom purchase) with the wonderful Justine today (thanks to Sheila for introducing us to each other!). I was struggling to get some NARS blushes but then I abandoned the idea.

In case you didn't know, I offer CP for Kanebo Lunasol Christmas Coffret ^_^ along with other brands like Canmake, Shu Uemura, Shiseido Maquillage, Sofina, RMK, Majolica Majorca, Jill Stuart, Paul & Joe, well pretty much every brand that has stores in Hong Kong.

What you see in the picture below is not my haul, they're items given to me by my friend who worked in a beauty magazine.
On the left is Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate (launched a month ago I guess?), it's a beauty serum, so far I've only tried a few times intermittently, will do a full review on it later. Then is the Burberry eyeshadow in Pale Rose (review here), MAC Tartan Tale Follow Your Fantasy eyeshadow (review here), FANCL Liquid Foundation, MAC Antique Green pigment, MAC Venomous Villains eyeshadow single in Vile Violet. And Bliss roller-ball EDT on top of the picture. There's also a lip liner from MAC unpictured here.

The EDT from Bliss: looks so sleek and the scent makes me think of the ocean, which resembles the bluish color of the tube too.

My right eye is feeling a bit weird for few days, think I might be having an eye infection @_@ meaning I have to stop using mascaras for a few days even though it's in my plan to use it up.

On an unrelated note, here's some dessert porn...haha!
Do you have a sweet tooth?

  4. So nice of your friend! And lucky to have a friend who can share so many great things with you :P Can't wait to hear about them when you review it (if you can) ^__^

    I got my highland honey today! It looks so nice! The MUA applied a bit much on me but after I kept blending it out with my fingers it ended up looking pretty natural, not as scary as I thought it be just from the pan xD I think after this I'm going to have to start not buying MU for a while :X

  12. hi hun,, thank you so much for droppin by at my page.. im gonna reactivate my account.. in new name (EYAKEL formerly Rhania Escueta)and have to double check its private settings.. that girl works as an entertainer before (in a club, singer --whatsoever), maybe thats why she talks that way.. i just felt humiliated at the same time degraded.. maybe she's right, i may not be as pretty as her.. nor sexy/hot as her but i knew where i stand in my guy's life..

    hugs back..

  13. wow the octagon cake looks divine :DD

    yea the beautymaker concealer's coverage isn't that great, but my dark circles aren't too bad. So I'm not too concerned about making it look flawless.
    I've also got their aqua trans loose powder and oil control gel but I haven't used the gel yet. I'll do a review on the powder later.
    I was hoping to get my hands on their make up items but I don't see it in a lot of places. =/

  22. MACAROONS!!!!! Om nom nom nom... It's 3am and you just made my stomach growl hahaha

    Oooh eye infection? =[ Hope it heals soon!! And in the meantime you can use falsies xD

    Ahh what I mean was the texture is different from when you just got it.. it's more sticky/thick etc..

    I checked urban dictionary, and goopy means a description of something that is gooey and drippy.

  25. Lovely gifts that you got from your friend! I have and use Kiehl's Midnight Recovery and I must say that I like it. At first I wasn't sure because it felt oily going on but after using it for a week, it didn't feel oily anymore. It sinks into the skin really nicely too. I use it every night after a serum. I'm looking forward to your review on it.

  26. I definitely have a sweet tooth...tee hee *^_^* Those look so yummy! Your post title is so cute. So sweet of your friend to give you all that!

  27. Ahh..right! I guess I'll make the difficult decision when time comes :P
    I probably won't get MU or skincare for the holidays because not many people know of my (slight) obsession xD

    ReplyDelete
  28. Jennifer, yes Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate is a serum but out of habit I like to use my regular serum, so I usually just apply it before I apply the Midnight Recovery. I also was told that I don't need to use a moisturizer afterwards but I usually use VitaCreme. Of course it's just because I have old skin and not young like yours.
