Like I mentioned in my previous post I had a little accident haul the other day and ended up buying some beauty products on impulsed. I went out of the house the other day to take my mind off something.
Actually, my Mommy was in surgery that day. She slipped and broke her arm a week and a half ago. She was cleared by her primary Doctor to have her surgery done that day.
Her surgery was scheduled at 2pm and the whole morning while waiting for time I was very nervous, anxious and jittery. I decided to leave the house and did some errands so I won’t feel tortured, you know the anguish of waiting. I needed to get out of the house until she will be wheeled inside the operating room.
I normally don’t walk around malls. If ever I go I usually just pick up what I want then leave. But after picking up something in National Bookstore I decided to walk to Healthy Options the one inside Rustan’s Grocery to waste time. It was not really a long walk. I told the driver to park in Rustan’s after he dropped me off in National Bookstore.
Right before going inside Rustan’s I passed by that area where all the high end make up brands are lined up. I decided to go in each store and did some swatches and check what they had. As what I expected they were not up to date with their stocks. It’s so frustrating.
I spent like an hour and a half going in and out all the stores there until my sister texted me and sent me a picture of Mommy being wheeled to the operating room. My heart twitched and my knees melted. I’ve never seen my Mom like that. The last time she was hospitalized and had an operation was when she gave birth to our youngest thru C section. I am not use to seeing her like this.
I wrapped things up and hurriedly went home. The operation was suppose to be for 2 hours only but it took longer cause the doctors decided to put a plate on the part of her arm that broke. I was in constant touch with my sister and my brother while she was inside the operating room updating me. The only time I was able to relax was when she was brought to the recovery room. And I felt so much better.
My Mom is okay now. She’s no longer in pain and she’s checking out today already. I’ll be visiting her soon and Claudia wants to come with me. So, I should be visiting her during Claudia’s semestral break.
I was suppose to go home for her surgery but something came up last minute and I had to cancel my trip.
Thank you God for her successful operation.
Let’s get on with my “accidental” haul. Please bear in mind that I wasn’t exactly myself that day. I just picked up stuff without thinking.
Eye Shadow Palettes:
Caviar Stick Eye Colour And Brow Definer
I love the packaging of the new Caviar Stick Eye. It feels so luxurious.
Look at the colors! I’m so excited to use this. I have the older Caviar eye stick and I like the way that it glides when you apply it. That’s why I decided to pick up the new shades.
I am currently using the Nars gel liner and I like it. I’ll try this one from Laura Mercier. This shade is dark brown. I’ve always wanted to get a brown gel liner cause sometimes when I want light make up I use brown liner.
The sales assistant in Laura Mercier, Jules, gave me so many giveaways. Among all the stores that I went to Laura Mercier is the one that’s so generous with their giveaways. These are what they gave me:
Yay, I love this! The concealer came with a setting Powder. I can’t wait to try this.
MAC didn’t give me any giveaway and samples.
I love the Nars make up brushes. I have their Ita kabuki brush for contouring and I really like it. I use it a lot. And this Yachiyo Kabuki Brush is for highlights. I can’t wait to use this!
NARS also gave me some samples:
Yay! They gave me a sample of their waterproof eyeliner.
I decided to get the regular sizes of Big Easy and High Beam already. I used the sample sizes that I got from Sephora last summer and I really like it.
I heard good reviews of Gimme Brow. I hope it will really give me thicker brows. Or the illusion of thick brows.
The Hoola Bronzer is already a re-purchased. I bought my first Hoola Bronzer in Hongkong a few years ago. The time when Claudia & me went crazy in the Benefit counter in Ocean Terminal.
These are the giveaways Benefit gave me. A make up bag! Another make up bag. We can never have enough make up bags!
I love the Laura Mercier eye shadow palettes.
Especially the Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour.
And my MAC lip pencils.
And my Benefit Gimme Brow.
Actually, I love everything I got.
Have a fabulous week end everyone!
