Payday Haul - Late September Edition + First Impressions

To my surprise (and probably yours too), it's that time for another payday haul this month! I've gotten quite a few products (as usual), one of which is skincare, another product is body care, and the rest are makeup which I've already fallen in love with the moment I received them. There will be some changes made to the blog, like the logo and the header which will be coming soon. 

Also, as I've tried these products for a day or two at the most already, I will also put in my first impressions and thoughts. 

Starting with the skin and body care, I got these products off BeautyMNL and I'm so glad I managed to get my hands on them because they were often getting sold out, particularly the skincare one. 

Cosrx Hyaluronic Acid Hydra Power Essence - This was always getting sold out at BeautyMNL that I can't remember how many times I had to go on the waitlist for it to go back on stock. I tried this one the other night, and it smells of those shredded coconuts that go o…

Glossier Perfecting Skin Tint + Stretch Concealer Thoughts

My close friends and those who have read this blog from day 1 know that I highly prefer wearing little to no foundation. Should I wear foundation, I want something that is:

a. Long-wearing
b. Lightweight

I don't really care for high coverage foundations or bb cushions or bb/cc creams. I also have reasons as to why I don't really prefer those things.

a. I sweat a lot on my face. Like a lot. Setting sprays ain't gonna cut it.
b. The weather here is humid to hot.
c. High-coverage base makeup tends to be thick and cakey and I have a heavy hand, so I'm definitely going to look caked up with those kinds of products.

Plus, I am more invested in my skincare so that I can go foundation-free. No offense to those who prefer something with coverage though. It's just not my cup of tea. I prefer one layer of foundation/bb/cc cream. I prefer going at it with my point makeup. Enter the two products that I have fallen in love with after just a few uses. The Glossier Perfecting Skin…

My Birthday Haul! + Presents

As I am turning the big 2-6 this year, I thought that I would treat myself to some makeup and skincare. The moment I received half my pay for the month from work, I knew I had to jump the gun and splurge on products that I've always wanted to get my hands on. This is more of a collective haul + some beauty presents that my cousin gave me. I will put links to the shops where I purchased most of my haul from as well as the present my cousin gave me. I couldn't find a link for the Neutrogena lip pencil though.

First up, my Glossier goodies, the Perfecting Skin Tint (Php 1500), and the Stretch Concealer (Php 1200). While I am more drawn to K-beauty brands, Glossier has caught my attention for some reason. Perhaps it's because of their whole approach to skincare and makeup. I got my hands on these two products, buying them off of on Instagram/ Etymology on Shopee since Glossier doesn't ship here. Hopefully, that changes soon.
