Haul: Mostly Nail Polish

Hey y'all! Another haul post here. I seriously need some discipline. I can't help but pick up stuff EVERY TIME I pass by the SM Department Store beauty section. O_O

Anyway, here are the stuff that I got recently. (Thanks to my dad for *ehem* paying for these. I love you dearly ^^,)


Items:
Fashion 21 Eyeliner in White - P 85.00
Fashion 21 Blending Brush - P 85.00
Wish Nail Colors Glitter Polishes - P 69.00
Caronia Nail Polish in Sun Kissed, First Crush, Sweet Surprise, On-the-Go
ELF Natural Radiance Blusher in Bronzed - P 129.75

More pics after the jump :)

Blending brush, white eyeliner, bronzer
The blending brush... it looked nice and decent so I decided to give it a try since I was also looking for a good blending brush. (The ELF one is always out-of-stock :/) So far I am loving it! I also saw it in Ann's (of The Beauty-Addict) haul post *here.* Ann later posted a review on it (see post *here*) and said that her brush shed after washing. I haven't washed mine yet. I hope it won't shed much (crossing fingers). 

And here are the nail polishes I got. 

L-R: First Crush, Sweet Surprise, Sun Kissed, On-the-Go
Caronia Sweet Bliss Summer Collection. After reading about and seeing swatches of this collection, I thought I just HAD to get every single color. I already have the other shade (Baby Pink) so all in all, I now have 5 out of the 6 colors from this collection. I couldn't find the other shade (Summer Fling) at that time so I just got these four. I have yet to swatch these. Will update you once my collection is complete :)


Wish Nail Colors Glitter Polishes. These glitter polishes came in a set. It's my first time to see this brand of nail polish and since I was looking for some glitter ones, I decided to try it out. I was really excited to use these, especially the red and green ones because of the star thingies! So I tried to swatch, swatch, swatch. I am honestly a bit disappointed with the glitter pay-off. I like the gold one the most because it gives the most glittery effect. The others are just... blah. The red and green ones... I don't know how to pick up those stars using the brush. And without the stars, the effect is really boring since the glitter pay-off is not very good. It's ok, I guess, but not very good. I have to apply coat after coat to get a nice glittery effect. My Caronia nail polish in Sunset has definitely more glitter pay-off than these polishes. But I think I'll try their other non-glitter polishes sometime. Have you tried this brand before? What do you think? Should I purchase their other polishes? :/

  18. hi..gusto-gusto ko yung mga post mo about nail polish..ask ko lng sana kung sa beauty sections ba ng mga malls eh meron kang makikita na pang nail art..kasi yung brush ng ibang nail polish maxado malaki ang hirap mag design eh..

    ReplyDelete
  19. Thank you Chie! Glad you like them. RE: your question, you can either purchase separate brushes (those made specifically for nail art purposes) or you can check out L.A. Colors Art Deco polishes. They have thin brushes, good for nail art. Also, check out Nikki's post here: http://www.askmewhats.com/2011/04/eureka-moment-nail-art-polish-and.html

    If you still can't find these in SM malls, you can order them online na lang. Hope that helps :)
