September Cosmetic Haul

Yesterday I had lunch with my cousin Don Don in Wildflour, Salcedo Village branch. He’s getting married next month and we met up so he can hand deliver to me my invitation.12046759_959855700753242_8905319901769808235_nAfter lunch I passed by Healthy Options (inside Rustan’s grocery) to re purchased some products that I ran out of and I passed by also in the make up section in Rustan’s Dept. store to look for eyebrow kit (powder & pencil).

As always I went home with more than I should. Story of my life.

Healthy Options

  1. Saavy Pure & Mineral Body Scrub. I really don’t need body scrub now ’cause I am so happy with my coffee body scrub. It’s the best body scrub ever. But the sales assistant in Healthy Options was trying to sell me their new product. And I got sucked in. I picked up the body scrub and the body wash.IMG_6740Yuzu & Meyer Lemon Dead Sea Salt Scrub & Tahitian Vanilla & Kukui Sugar Scrub. Both smell so good. I have yet to try this.
  2. Saavy Pure & Mineral Body WashIMG_6742I picked the same scents as the body scrub. I tried this morning the Tahitian Vanilla & Kukui and I really love it. If you like vanilla scent you will like this.
  3. Derma e Anti wrinkle Vitamin A and Gylcolic Cleanser and TonerIMG_6743I re purchased these because of the glycolic acid in it. I alternate this with my other cleansers and toners.
  4. Andalou Naturals Kombucha Enzyme Exfoliating PeelIMG_6745I haven’t tried this product yet. I love exfoliating my skin so I picked this up.
  5. Andalou Naturals 1000 Roses Absolute SerumIMG_6747I have been looking for a good serum to alternate with my Chanel Sublimage Serum. This is Andalou Naturals new product and I want to try it.
  6. Andalou Naturals 1000 Roses Floral TonerIMG_6750This is already my second bottle. I re purchased this because I love this product. I use this as a spray mist. I spray it all over my face after I put on my make up. And this product is life changing. It makes my skin look dewy the whole day and keep my make up last longer.
  7. Andalou Naturals Pumpkin Honey Glycolic MaskIMG_6751This is already my third jar. I used this 3 times a week to exfoliate my skin. This is one of my  favorite Andalou Naturals product. I love all their products but this is one of my favorites.
  8. Andalou Naturals Argan + Mint Lip RemedyIMG_6754This is my second tube. This is the only lip balm that works for me. I have very dry lips and this is heaven sent. As a matter of fact I bought my friend Patrice a tube ’cause she’s also like me. She also has dry lips and this also worked for her.


  1. MAC Mineralize Skin Finish Natural in Give Me SunIMG_6761I can’t have enough bronzers! This doesn’t really look orange-y in person. The lights changed the color. This is one of MAC’s very popular bronzers. So I heard.
  2. MAC Lip Pencil in SpiceIMG_6763One Youtube Beauty guru that I follow loves this shade. I swatched it and I kinda like it.
  3. MAC Eye Shadow in Sketch VelvetIMG_6764One shade that I really like. I used it today and I love it!
  4. MAC Matte Lipstick in Please Me, Snob, HoneyLove, and BraveIMG_6766I got carried away.
  5. MAC Eyebrows in FlingIMG_6770I use ash shade/greyish in my eyebrows. Ash shade looks natural for my skin tone. I have been using Catrice eyebrow pencil for a long time already and I needed a new one. Catrice ran out of the shade I am using. I hope I will like this.
  6. MAC Brow Shader in Porcelaine/BrowningIMG_6771I use eyebrow powder on top of the pencil every time I’m doing my brows. I picked this up ’cause I’ve never tried using their eyebrow powder. It comes with an eyebrow wax so, I have high hopes for this.
  7. MAC 137 Make Up BrushIMG_6773This brush has been in my make up list for a long time. Finally I can scratch this out on my list.

Bobbi Brown

  1. Bobbi Brown Bronzing PowderIMG_6776Like I said I can’t have enough bronzers! Bronzers is my favorite make up of all time. This is also not the color in person. Somehow my lights changed the real color.
  2. Bobbi Brown Brow KitIMG_6779Like I said earlier I am looking for a good eyebrow kit. I also picked up Bobbi Brown’s eyebrow kit to try.
  3. Bobbi Brown Intensive Skin Serum Concealer in SandIMG_6780Janice, the girl in Bobbi Brown counter convinced me to get this. I am not in the market for a new concealer ’cause I just bought a concealer in Chanel last month. But she told me to get this because this is their new concealer and it has serum in it.
  4. Bobbi Brown Sheer Powder Make Up BrushIMG_6783I love Bobbi Browns make up brushes. I picked this up to alternate with my MAC 137 brush. I will use this when I set my under eye concealer.


  1. NARS Pro-PrimerIMG_6785I have been looking for NARS eye primer but it’s always out of stock. So, I decided to pick this up. This is also a primer but in a stick form. I used this today and I like it. It has a smooth powdery finish and it made my eye shadow easy to blend.
  2. NARS Matte Lip Pencil in Sex MachineIMG_6787I am not really a fan of lip pencils that is not roll up and needs a sharpener. But when I swatched this shade I fell in love with it. A very nice mauve -ish shade.
  3. NARS Pure Matte Lipstick in Bangkok and TonkinIMG_6790I have never tried NARS matte lipstick. So, I picked up these. Very nice nude shades.
  4. NARS #43 Wide Contour Eyeshadow brush & #42 Blending Eyeshadow BrushIMG_6791I need more blending brushes. I love make-up brushes!

So, there you are! My latest haul.

September 2015


  • You look so youthful in the pic, Ms T! Love it.

    I’ve run out of Laura Mercier eyeshadow primer myself. Earlier, I was in Greenbelt 5 and since I’m far from Rustan’s, I settled for Benefit’s “Stay, Don’t Stray” eyeshadow primer (and it doubles as an under-eye concealer). Sana it’s worth it. Will look for reviews. Just sharing 🙂

  • My daughter would have been very happy if you were her customer. She works for MAC cosmetics but in their Robinson’s Ermita Branch.

  • Not sure if it’s offered there, but here in North America, MAC has a “Back-to-MAC” program where if you use up your shadows, lipsticks/glosses, foundations, concealers, bronzers/blushes and pigments, you can get a free lipstick of your choice for every 6 empty containers you return. Just a nice freebie I thought I’d mention in case you don’t know and it’s offered there:)

  • Miss T! Please ell us if the the Bobbi Brown serum concealer is good. 🙂

    I love NARS velvet matte pencils even if I hate sharpening too. It has a great staying power. I used it when we went to Universal Studios Hollywood. Imagine it was a summer it’s so sunny. (Naiirita ako and my American Uncle was like. You’re from the Philippines, girl! And I was like.. why? Do you think I spend so much time in the sun in Manila?” hahaha)

    Okay back to the NARS Velvet matte lippy, I was wearing a red shade Cruella and it didn’t melt nor budge. 🙂 Though my favorite is Dolce Vita pencil 🙂

    • I have a lot of favorite bronzers! You need to experiment on what’s good for your skin tone. Hit and miss in the beginning but eventually you’ll find what’s best for you.
