Huge Collective Makeup Haul

I would have to admit, I'm so bad at hoarding stuff! I love makeup so much that most of the time, I can't help it and I'd find myself shopping for more and more. I love trying out new products and buying new things.  
I'm sort of an impulse buyer. I say "Sort of" because I'd still make it a point that I read and watch reviews of the things I'm gonna buy. I read and watch lots of reviews so if the products are raved about and I get the chance to get them, I will. Haha! Although most of the time, I just try to find more things that I think would be useful for my kit since I do freelance hair and makeup service. I would just always tell myself that I'm surely going to use them. Hehe!
And another thing... I'm not so sure if it's just me but I really want new products to be in their tip-top shape for photo ops. I'm always imagining my newly bought makeups being photographed for my blog. Haha! So what happens is that if I forget to take a picture of the product, I almost completely forget about it. They just all get stuck in my drawers unopened, some even kept inside their plastic pouches from how it was exactly purchased. Untouched. Bad me.. >.<

Now let's go and get started in this huge haul...

Even though most of these items are untouched for at least a while, some are actually backups for my favorite things.
Read more to see which ones are repurchased products... ;)


L'oreal Base Magique transforming smoothing Primer - PhP 945.00
from SM Calamba
L'oreal True Match liquid foundation in N7 Nude Beige - PhP 945.00 Bought from Landmark during a sale for only PhP 796.00!!! =)

The Base Magique primer, I've used for quite sometime already. It feels real smooth on the skin when applied, not sure about it getting the foundation to last longer.
The foundation is also lovely except that it is actually dark on my skin. I think I got lighter now. ;) Love mixing this with my Encara BB Cream.
 Aziza Powder Foundation in Jasmin Tea (Light) and Aziza Oil-Free Liquid Foundation in Warm Beige, Classic Beige and Buff Beige. Everything for PhP 66.00 each from Japan Home Store.

Top Right - Silk - Bought from Natasha direct Selling during sale for only PhP 364.00 plus member's discount. ;)

Bottom Left-Right - Rajah and Chino - Bought from SM Calamba.
I'm loving the new packaging. The SA said that not all branches have been distributed with the new refillable packaging yet. 

Sooo LOVE these powders! They're awesomely affordable and gives great coverage. I've hit pan on the ones the first three shades I've tried (Silk, Chino and Rajah).

Fashion 21 Aqualicious Moisture-Rich Lipstick in Little Mermaid - PhP 155.00 (This one's a repurchase! Super lovely shade, very pigment and smooth on the lips.)

I'm so happy to have finally shared these to all of you. I've been keeping lots of them untouched in my drawers because I feel the need to keep them unopened until I've blogged about them. Haha! So now, I'm so excited to use them already. Haha! 
You might also notice, I'm such a fan of things on sale. Who doesn't want to save a few pesos, right? Malls often go on sale (market introductory/clearance sale/promo sale/) so I think that's always a smart move to purchase things especially when you are actually buying them. Timing is of the essence. Besides, I'm still trying to build my kit and I want to have diverse makeup options, so saving the few pesos would be very important. ;)

Do you love things on sale too? Do you also sometimes purchase things and totally forget about them? haha!

Hope you all enjoyed this post. Check back for more hauls to come and reviews of the products I've included.


  1. Oh my goodness! you have so many stuff! :) I would really like to try the aziza stuff since its a little cheap but good according to my friend :)

    1. Thanks Alice! =) Hehe! You should. It's pretty cheap for only PhP 66.00 each. I've seen some online stores actually selling them for PhP 150. hehe!

    2. Hi, I like your blog a lot. Just wanna ask if it's okay kung I'll buy the avon luxury lip liner in baby pink..

  2. i love your haul!!! i would like to try a lot of stuff but then i just happened to shop a while ago.
    i didn't know they had make up products in japan home center.. are those liquid foundation good? :)

    1. Dana Kimberly - thank you dear! =) I was actually surprised to find makeups there, though I've purchased quite a few products like amazing false lashes and makeup sponges. I only saw them placed along the cashier area. Hehe! The liquid foundation is actually pigmented but a little too dry for my liking. I think it's a good product to try out. :)

  3. I love your haul but I dont like sansan palette in Number two it crease immediately kasi wet yung eyeshadow.

    1. Thank you! =) I've actually not tried it yet except for when I swatched it before the purchase. The pigmentation was amazing so I bought it immediately. Hehe! This would probably work with an eyeshadow primer. Thanks for the heads up, dear! =)

  4. Rajah! Ang tagal ko ng naghahanap dito. Wala lagi. :(

    1. Awww.. naku sis! Lagi nga rin talaga out of stock dito samin. Sa SM Calamba ko pa yan nakita. Kaya kahit hindi discounted nung araw na yun, binili ko na agad. Hehe!

  5. Sis, do you have a review on the Aziza Oil-Free Liquid Foundation? I have the Warm Beige and Classic Beige, I got them from my MIL's friend, from the US. =)
