2011 Birthday Haul

Hellow everyone! Have you joined my giveaway yet? If not, click *HERE!*

Anyway, these are the stuff I bought on my birthday. I didn't go crazy shopping for makeup. But for nail polish, I guess I did a bit :/


Not a major haul but I'm quite happy with it because I found the items that I've been looking for for quite sometime now.


From TFS, I bought these.

L-R: GR501, Top coat
TFS Nail Top Coat - P 95.00
TFS Nail Color in GR501 - P 95.00

Then I saw this stall at SM North Annex and realized that it's Elianto. I was soooo happy to see it because I heard that Elianto's closing down their shops here in the Philippines so their products are now on sale. I used to go to their SM Fairview Dep't Store and Landmark Department Store counters but they all disappeared. I then thought there were no more Elianto stores here. Turned out there's still this one.

@SM North Annex, UGF, near Wendy's and Peri Peri
I bought these nail polishes - all on sale and on a buy-1-take-1 promo.

L-R: Novy, Yellow, Thistle, Olive
Elianto Nail Color in Novy (28) - P 60.00
Elianto Nail Color in Yellow (23) - P 60.00
Elianto Nail Color in Thistle (35) - P 0.00
Elianto Nail Color in Olive (31) - P 0.00

I also stopped by Landmark Dep't Store and found the always-out-of-stock ELF blending brush. I was like, "AT LAST!" :]


ELF Blending Eye Brush - P 129.75

Blooper of the day: When I was about to pay, I handed the cashier my SM Advantage card.
Cashier: Wala po kaming ganito.
Me: Ay? Talaga? Bakit? (Then it hit me. Wala pala ako sa SM) 
O_O_O

I also picked up some other items while I was there. Got my first pair of falsies. Just wanna try and practice putting false lashes on. :)


Enhance False Eyelashes in No. 39 - P 49.95
Nichido Tru Lashes Eyelash Adhesive - P 60.00

Aaaaand that's pretty much it! I have a lot of nail colors to swatch for you - these and the others from my previous haul post.

Hope you had a nice weekend! I spent mine taking a mock chem board exam (Saturday and Sunday, 7 am to 5 pm). FUN! (sarcasm)

Swatches *here.*
