Mini Haul

Rarely get to go to Makati anymore so figured I'd drop by to see what they have in Landmark since I was in the area. Caby raves about it to me almost every week lol. Okay, pretty impressive. I usually go to Watsons. But darn it, they really dont have most of the things I need. Anyway, heres what I got


Please Click the images to view in full size :D


Happy Camper!

Splurge or Save? SAVE!!



This looks similar to the lashes I love but got from ebay. This one doesnt come with glue though. P49.75 (about a dollar)



Little Sifter Jar! With cute little puff ( I dont really like the puff though) But I like that jar. It looks sturdier than the last one I got. Though the cap can be kind of annoying to screw and unscrew. But at P49.75 (about a dollar) im not complaining lol



San San Eyeshadow Pencil (03). P46.75 (about a dollar). I was looking for an alternative to my UDPP for base. Sorry camera washes out almost everything



Swatch: Its actually a very light peachy color



And it broke while I was swatching. Guess have to be careful when I re-sharpen it.



Swatched: M.A.C. Limit and Chrome Yellow. It did sort of change the colors a bit. It is peach afterall. The orange turned almost brown orangey the yellow was okay though



Short handled Concealer Brush: P39.75 (too lazy to compute but less than a dollar lol) I actually asked to open everything to check before deciding on getting any of the brushes. Im a little picky with the brushes I get hehe. This one was dense and soft and cheap too! Used to long handled brushes though so we shall see. But overall, I like the quality :)



Fan Brush: P39.75. Okay this one I love. Its as dense as the fan brush I have and soft. It also comes in a sleeve and a brush sleeve



Eyeliner Brush: P99.95 (about $2). Also comes in a sleeve and a little tube like plastic to help protect the itsy bitsy brush. I wanted to get one for finer detailed lining and what not. Its okay. I find the plastic tube annoying though cause You obviously need to put it back if you want it to last longer. But I get scared removing it, I always think that im going to accidentally grab the bunch of brush hair when I pull haha



Tried using it haha. The straght line on the left I used my regular flat liner brush. I dont know though if my gel liner is starting to get dry but using this brush with the gel liner was not easy. I probably wouldnt use this as a regular brush for eyeliner cause it would take me longer.


I forgot to take a picture of the spatulas and the 2 jars I got that also came with a spatula. 2 spatulas go for P5.95 (please dont make me compute--its dirt cheap! lol) and the two jars that comes with a spatula is P27.95 (about a qaurter or so haha)

I am the most unorganized person haha my room is a big mess. But I wont ever dip my fingers or brushes into a pot of concealer, jar of moisturizer, or willingly share my lipstick. LOL
I try to keep my makeup sanitized so they will last longer and be uhm germ free hahaha. I was almost running out of mini spatulas. So Landmark is heaven sent. I plan to go back and stock up on little jars and spatulas. OC!! haha :)
