I don’t haul like mad. I only get what suits me or what I really need. Because, honestly, it’s hard to have other _expensive_ interests such as gaming and toys. Budget is a must for me! For all of us actually. 😛 But I admit I sometimes buy cosmetics on impulse. Lately I have been into buying lipsticks and blushes. The thought of summer made me want some corals although I keep getting drawn away by pretty pinks, reds, and plums that I find. ^^;
Below are what I’ve acquired so far since January this year.
Those in the upper left — Max Factor Ageless Elixir sample, M•A•C Sheen Supreme Lipstick in Can’t Resist, M•A•C Mineralized Blush in Love Thing, and CoverGirl Lip Perfection in Feline and Captivate — are online bargain finds while the Garnier Light and OilClear and Maybelline Baby Lips are from NetBooster Asia’s KUNG HEI PARTEY. The Laura Mercier lipstick in Roman Moon is an impulse buy. I really wanted to get Tangerine, but it didn’t look good on me. Instead of just leaving the store and being able to save moolah, I bought Roman Moon. It was suggested to me by the attendant when I found the color so pretty (even on me :D).
The following are what my parents brought home from their recent trip. The Estee Lauder and Lancome products are from my Aunt/Ninang. 🙂
Not in pictures are Maybelline Clear Smooth Blush in Fresh Apricot and, my latest purchase, a M•A•C Lustre lipstick in Syrup. I’m sure I took a picture with the Fresh Apricot blush. I must have deleted it while I sorted through numerous takes.
My hauls are unlike those who purchase that much in only a week or month. ^^; I don’t want to spend for cosmetics for now or any time soon, but there are some I’m eying at the moment. That includes a Chanel blush and some brushes. I already have been mentally calculating my budget and expenses. XD;
The Glam Love ladies had dinner a couple of weeks back as mentioned here. Let me share an Instax photo of us from that dinner:
