Haul: Great Deals
Don't you just love great deals? That's also one of the reasons why I like going to beauty bazaars and expos. You can spot many great deals there. And who doesn't love discounts?!
Kleancolor nail polish in 134 Holo Pink - P80
Sassy 2-way nail art tool in black and white - P37 each
Bobbie nail polish in Touch of Beige - P35
Etude House Soft Touch Auto Lipliner in #5 - P98
Etude House Drawing Eye Brow in #2 - P128
Beauty Cosmetics goat hair blending brush - P90
Beauty Cosmetics synthetic blending brushes in purple and pink (travel size) - P50 each
Beauty Cosmetics goat hair crease/pencil brush (travel size) - P90
For example, about a month ago, I went to the 2013 Cosmetologie Fair and saw Kleancolor's promo. Nail polishes sold for only P80 per bottle! Regular price, I think, is P150. I went crazy over their holo shades, but unfortunately the shades I really wanted except for the pink one were out of stock that time. Took advantage, still, because the discount was almost 50%, and I didn't know where else Kleancolor was available locally. The pink shade's also really gorge!
And that's the only thing I got during Cosmetologie. LOL. Swatches here: http://www.codenameaya.com/2013/06/notd-pink-again.html
Here are some more nail products I got. Not from Cosmetologie and not discounted although still pretty affordable.
Then about a week after that, Celine and Eyah invited me to come with them to World Trade Center again for the Heat Wave Summer Bazaar. I actually had already decided not to come, but I'm so glad I still went! Why? Because Beauty Cosmetics had a booth there, and their brushes were on sale!
Synthetic blending brushes for only P50?! They're actually travel-sized brushes but I didn't mind. Perfect timing too, because I was looking for good but affordable blending brushes. I bought an extra but in a different color so I would have something to use as a 'cleaning substitute.' I also bought a larger, natural-haired blending brush as a cleaning substitute for the similar one I had here at home. Lastly, I got a small (also travel-sized) pencil/crease brush for my small lids because I didn't have one like it yet.
Talk about great deals, eh? These were the only things I got during the bazaar, but I'm really happy with them already ;] Thanks, Celline, for the free bazaar pass!
And lastly... some essentials from my recent trip to Etude House - lipliner for my mom and brow pencil for me (not discounted, but also affordable ;P).
I was supposed to repurchase the Easy Brow Pencil in #4 which I LOOOOVE, but I decided to try this retractable and angled one instead. Heard it's also good :)
I couldn't find an exact shade match, though. This shade #2 (gray-brown) was the closest match I could find to my Easy Brow Pencil shade which was #4 (light gray). As much as possible, I don't use brown brow pencils anymore because they look unnatural on me. Good thing this Drawing Eye Brow shade #2 is not too brown for my liking. I'll post a review of both brow pencils soon :)
