Holiday Haul - 1
I wanted to share some of the stuff I bought this week. I figured it would be easier for me to make a weekly haul post than to post it all when I get home. But I'll put up proper reviews and looks when I am back :)
Up first, some stuff I bought at Duty Free when we left Dubai:
Soleil Tan De Chanel Sheer Illuminating Fluid Sunkissed, MAC Blush PeachTwist, MAC Select Cover Up Concealer NC43, YSL Rouge Pur Shine #31 Tuxedo Pink
YSL Rouge Pur Shine Lipstick #31 Pink Tuxedo, Soleil Tan De Chanel Illuminating Fluid in Sunkissed, MAC Sheertone Blush in PeachTwist, MAC Select Cover Up Concealer NC 43
I just fell in LOVE with the Chanel illuminator. I tried it on my cheekbones and it looked gorgeous! Can't wait to use this at home. The lipstick was an impulse buy. It is such a pretty glossy pink and it seems to be little warmer than my Girl About Town. I thought PeachTwist was beautiful (I am going through a really big shimmer phase, again!) And I'm pretty much in love with anything that has Peach or Coral in the name! I needed some new concealer and have always loved the texture of Select Cover Up. I'm just not sure about how it will match up in the winter, but I can always buy another one :)
And here's some stuff that I bought in the city.
ELF Waterproof Eyeliner Pen Black, Revlon Just Bitten Lipstain Frenzy, Wet'n'Wild Natural Wear Lip Shimmer Spice, Wet'n'Wild Coloricon Palette Vanity
I was soo excited to find ELF and Wet'n'Wild!! I literally had to stop myself from running over there, like a kid! We don't get Just Bitten lip stains yet, either so I was excited to find them. I bought Frenzy, but I think it might be a little too red for me.
Organix Brazilian Keratin Therapy Shampoo, Organix Nourishing Coconut Milk Instant Repair Treatment.
I have been wanting to try these for a while, ever since reading reviews online. I actually went to like three different stores to find these! Haven't tried them yet, but hair-wash-day is tomorrow, so I will definitely let you guys know how it goes! :)
Celeteque Facial Wash, Dermaction Gentle Skin Cleanser, Neutrogena Ultra Sheer sun screen, Nivea Sun Collagen Protect sun screen.
I needed to get a cleanser because my waterless one isn't cutting it when it comes to Manila grime. Celeteque is for sensitive skin, but it dried mine out. Dermaction seems to be better, I think it might just be a generic version of Cetaphil. I haven't seen either of these sunscreens in Dubai yet, so I thought I'd try them out. So far, the Neutrogena one is OK, but it seems to leave my face feeling a tad greasy. I haven't tried the Nivea one yet, so fingers crossed! :)
Wet'n'Wild Shine Nail Color Blaze, Stila Wonderful in Waikiki palette, Wet'n'Wild Shine Nail Protector
Stila Wonderful in Waikiki Palette
Wonderful in Waikiki swatches
I bought the nail polish because I needed to redo my nails, but I ended up getting them done at the spa. I thought Blaze was a good color to buy because it would work through to Spring. How cute is this Stila palette? I wasn't even looking for it, so I was excited when I came across the whole collection! I chose this one because of that gorgeous blue! These colors really are perfectly beachy! Even the blush and bronzer make me think of an island :)
Well, that's this week's beauty and makeup haul! Oh, and I forgot, I have one more picture for you guys...
We no longer get Laura Mercier or Nars products in Dubai. I almost screamed when I saw this and immediately took a picture (like the loser tourist that I am! hahaha) Unfortunately, Laura Mercier didn't have the tinted moisturizer in my shade, and I'm waiting for them to call me. And NARS in Manila no longer carries cream blushes or shadows. So I'm going to have to go back when I have a think about what I want :)
Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend! :)
