June & July 2015 Haul

by - August 17, 2015

Sorry that it took me so long to upload this video.  I finished it last night but I had second thoughts about doing the voice over, so I had to re-export it.  I didn't like how it turned out and honestly, I'm still not confident enough to do that.  Well, hearing my own voice makes me cringe so it's a no-no for now.  HAHA!

But what do you think guys?  Should I give it a try?  :)

Anyway, last June, I only had 3 items from this bunch so I decided to combine it with July.  Actually, that happens all the time, I figured.  This month, I'm on a shopping ban so I'll resume this series in October for the September haul.

Product List

Oh, by the way, I haven't tried some of these yet, but for the others that I've been trying out so far, no disappointments.  Good.  Good.

Etude House Proof 10 Eye Primer (298 php)

It's not too expensive and it claims to extends the wear time of eye makeup so I got it.  I haven't used it consistently though because I don't put on too much eye shadow daily, so for now, I can't say yet if it's really effective.  However, I like the packaging.  It's easy to apply and blend as it's cream type.

Dove Nourishing Curls Whipped Cream Mousse (200++ php)

This was given to me by Kris.  He needed something to texturize his hair for styling but unfortunately, it didn't work for him.  So, instead of throwing it away, he let me try it out.

I use this whenever I want to do effortless curls.  I just apply it generously and twist my hair into buns.

The Saem Saemmul Real Tint in Pink (300++ php)

I bought this as a replacement to my gel-type lip tint - Etude House Dear Darling.  But apparently, it's watery-type.  No regrets though because I love the intense color!  Check out the swatch!  I also like the cute design of the tube.

And yes, The Saem is a Korean brand.

The Face Shop My Lips Eat Cherry Aqua Tint in Bloody Red (225 php)

Alright!  More lip tints for me!

The Face Shop had a buy one get one promo recently.  I only got these lip tints because I know they're pretty good.  I've tried it before except the shade I picked now is Bloody Red (when I visited the store, it's the only color available).

They're not too pigmented but for everyday use, they would still work.  I'm keeping the other one as a backup or maybe, I could give it away as a gift.

The Face Shop Real Nature Mask - Avocado (60++ php)

I also picked up a facial mask sheet.  If you can remember, I've tried 2 variants before - Rice and Blueberry.  

L'Oreal Revitalift Anti-Wrinkle + Firming Day Cream (800++ php)

I chose this as my day moisturizer because it contains retinol as the key ingredient.  I said that because now, I'm more into anti-aging, firming and brightening skincare products.  Not much on the pore-care, mattifying side anymore.  Well, maybe my toner is an exception to that.

Loving this so far because it's hydrating without any greasy feeling.


Snoe Hair Heroes Super Fresh Hair Texturizing Spray (299 php)

The time when I got a shorter hair, I looked for a product like this.  I really want to recreate that tousled, messy, just-got-out-of-bed kind of hairstyle and this one surprisingly works.  

Laneige Water Sleeping Mask (1400 php) and Lip Sleeping Mask

 Here's the freebie kit I got from Laneige's blogger event last month.  

I haven't used the water sleeping mask yet since I'm still finishing up my current night moisturizer.  The lip mask however, I'm using night and day.  I'm sooooo in love with it!!!

Caronia Green Tea Foot Spa Kit

Here's another gift I received last month.  Thank you, Caronia!

I'm most excited about the scrub because my feet really need serious pampering now.  

Dove Oxygen & Nourishment Shampoo (100++ php)

My current shampoo is this Dove's newest offering.  For sure, you've seen it on TV already.

I just wish that they made the scent more long lasting but overall, it's good.

Mario Badescu Glycolic Foaming Cleanser & Glycolic Acid Toner

Also last month, I tried shopping at Amazon just because I wanted to try Mario Badescu skincare.  I know they're available at Rustan's but buying it from US turned out to be cheaper.  

Obviously, I got a little cray cray about glycolic.  HAHA!  Both of them work as an exfoliator as well.

Ecotools Eye Enhancing Duo Set

Also, to qualify for the free shipping at Amazon, I added this set to my cart.  I needed extra few dollars.  *wink

Clearly, these are dual-ended brushes.  #valueformoney you say?

So, that's it!  I'll end this post by doing the Quickie Update!

Currently Loving: Mcdo's Chicken & Spag meal 

My LSS:  Bigbang's Let's No Fall in Love - This is genius.  I just wish they had given Daesung and Seungri more parts.

Recently Watched: I'm resuming my Running Man marathon.  I also finished watching LOTR and The Hobbit.  Oh, Legolas!  Why so beautiful and perfect?  :)

Craving For: A bowl of Bibimbap please?!

your sweetest drug,
