You know me... I love nail polishes. I have 6 matte polishes in my collection and all of them are from Etude House. Don't get me wrong... I like the effect that matte polishes give, but sometimes they're just a pain to apply. I find that with some of my EH matte polishes, it's difficult to get a smooth coat of polish. Since they dry quickly, they often leave my nails with a streaky finish. I think a matte top coat is a more practical buy since you can use it on top of any nail polish. And this works well, too! Will definitely post some comparison pictures for you soon :)
We also stopped by Beauty and Minerals' booth. Their mineral eyeshadows were on sale for for P100 each! It was really hard to pick a shade. Gellie and I were swatching here and there, choosing between all sorts of pinks and beiges.
But I'm happy with this shade. It's something I'd wear often :)
We also stopped by the Digital Traincase booth which was just right beside the Beauty and Minerals booth. They were actually two of the busiest booths at the expo. I got my first ever NYX product! I've been looking for a good brown/nude-ish lipstick so I went right ahead and swatched a lot of browns. I picked the shade Butter because I liked how it looked when swatched on my hand. The shade looks slightly different on my lips, though. It's not the best shade for me. (Yeah, I don't test lipsticks on my lips first before buying.) :P
Then I got another lipstick but this time, from Wet N Wild. All their products were on a 20%-off sale. I bought a sort of my-lips-but-better lipstick shade. It was originally P119 but because of the discount, I got it for only P96! I know I say in my lipstick reviews that I'm not a huge fan of frosted lippies but this one is not so frosty.
I stopped by the Caronia booth too, of course. How could I not? Hahaha I act as if I don't have enough Caronia stuff already! Since I'm on a nude nail polish shade phase too, I grabbed Touch of Beige. I remember a reader telling me that it's her perfect nude polish. Since I'm almost out of my The Face Shop base coat (which is awesome, by the way) and I always keep on forgetting to repurchase one, I bought Caronia's base coat, too. As filler. You know those products that you use when you run out of what you're currently using and you don't have time/money to repurchase? Haha, yeah, that.
Ooooh, and I got a free poster with my purchase :)
Then we also got free samples of Anew products from Avon. The SA there told us that we can start using anti-aging products at the age of 25 and suggested that we give the samples to our moms instead. And that's what I did. Oooh, but I did keep samples of their hair treatment! ;]
