MAY 2013 – BIRTHDAY & COLLECTIVE HAUL

So… I have been watching tons of haul videos on Youtube lately and that made me want to do something similar. Hence, the birth of my first haul post! I don’t think I will ever do a haul video but we shall see. Anything can happen.

I had my birthday this month and was showered with gifts from my beloved friends.

IMG_0826From left to right: Loreal’s Miracle Hair Oil Treatment, Maybelline Pure Mineral BB Cream and Maybelline Bold Matte lipstick in Vivid Coral.

I really love Loreal’s Oil Treatment because it does not leave an oily residue on my hands after applying. It also makes my hair less frizzy after blow-drying.

Here’s how the Maybelline Bold Matte lipstick looks on me:
IMG_1009I not only love the shade but also how moisturising it is on my lips.

IMG_0828Turquoise bag and Revlon’s Just Bitten Kissable  Balm Stain in Rendezvous.

IMG_1193Paris Scrapbook, Capitaland vouchers, A Pug’s Guide to Etiquette by Gemma Correll, Pug keychain.

I loveee pugs and I can’t wait to get one in the future.

I went to Kiehl’s to restock on my Ultra Facial Cream but ended up buying so much more… Oh wells.

IMG_0770I have this Sally Hansen base coat which I have been using for YEARS. So I decided to get their top coat as well because I know it will last.

Fashion

IMG_1211I will wear this either with a tube or a bandeau but I don’t have either at the moment. Need to get!

IMG_1212Because it was so cheap, I had to get another.

IMG_1251My favourite buy of the month! It used to be $126.90 but reduced to $68.90 + an extra 20% off = $55.10. I also used my $50 capitaland voucher which meant that I only paid $5.10 for this dress!

IMG_1255Coach Classic Leather Stewardess Bag. The biggest buy of the month and also a birthday present to myself. I shipped it over from the USA because Coach Singapore do not carry Coach Classics. Boo.

Home

IMG_1233Marks & Spencer’s Coastal Scented Candle, $10 (on discount). I have no idea why I’m so into candles these days. I also kinda wished Bath & Body Works exists in my country so I can buy their awesome 3 wick candles.

IMG_0628I’m always a little hesitant to try and embrace new eyeliners because I’m a loyal K-Palette/Urban Decay fan (these 2 brands suit me best). But this one won me over! It’s super waterproof and the colour stays on for the whole day.

VANITYTROVE – OCTOBER ’12

This month’s Vanitytrove is all about being bold and standing out.

LIOELE PORE CLEAN & TIGHTENING PACK

Got this on Gmarket because it was on offer. I cannot seem to resist any beauty product that targets pores and sebum.

The mask is grey in colour and smells pretty funky.

After a few minutes after applying and as the mask starts to dry up, I can feel my skin tightening. Even after washing off the mask, the tightness was there for about 5 minutes. Not to mention that my face was baby smooth as well.

VANITYTROVE – AUGUST ’12

August’s trove is all about beauty and technology.

The trove was so packed, I couldn’t put back the items in the box proper after taking them out!

Brands Innershine Prune Essence and Brands Innershine Berry Essence with Grapeseed. The Prune Essence improves bowel movement as it is high in fiber thus promoting good intestinal health. Grape seed extract is rich in OPCs is essential in the synthesis and cross-linking of collagen fiber which helps to fortify collagen in the skin while slowing down the depletion process.

ACACI Special Oil-Zero Solution that kinda works like oil blotters. Just that you spray the solution to remove sebum on the face. I can’t wait to try this.

I’m not having my period at the moment so I can’t try this out. However, I’ve been hearing positive comments about this product. One of which is from razortv. I was so amazed and intrigued after watching the video. To sum it up for those who are lazy to watch the video, these oxypads are super absorbant and able to eliminate odour. In the video, they actually poured fish sauce on the pads and they didn’t smell one bit.

The pads also come with a warning core to see if your discharge is abnormal.

Au Lait Body Milk by Scottish Fine Soaps Company. I can’t resist a good body lotion that smells so lush.

Origins anti-aging lotion and serum.

Biore Aqua Jelly Makeup Remover and Neutrogena Deep Clean Mulberry Foaming Scrub from Watsons.

Morillins Facial Therapy Mask for mature skin. They have a huge range of masks that caters to other skin types.

Sampar Foam peel, poreless magic peel and glamour shot cream.

I have to say this month’s trove is filled with really interesting products and I can’t wait to try them. Sign up for it here for your monthly dose of surprise!
