Haul: Back at HBC

Dropped by HBC yesterday just because I haven't dropped by there in a while. I picked up a few of their newest products. 


Items:
San San HD Foundation in Natural - 195 Php
San San HD Concealer in Natural - 105 Php
Blending sponge - 70 Php

I also restocked in nail files (my fave disposable nail files are HBC's), powder puffs and other tools. Oh, and I was supposed to buy backups of my fave San San eyeliner pen, but it's out of stock. Sad. The one I'm currently using is about to dry up. 

One of the reasons I dropped by was to buy their HD foundation, which I've heard a few raves about. I liked the previous San San foundations I've tried, and I have a feeling I'd like this one as well. 


And the packaging is way better than that of their other foundations, ha! (Look, it matches my nails. Haha.)

San San's HD line has three face products, if I'm not mistaken. A foundation, a concealer and a two-way cake, which all come in three shades (Olive, Beige and Natural). Aside from face products, there are also lipsticks, I think.

I remembered I had run out of liquid concealer a few months ago, so I picked up the HD concealer pen as well. 

I also saw their new blending sponges. Picked one up just because I have never tried using one before. 

Oh, and by the way, the San San Soleil summer collection is out again! I liked the matte foundation from the line, which I got 2-3 years ago when the Soleil collection first became available.


It's a really full-coverage BB-cream-ish foundation, but it's got high SPF, so it appears a little light on the skin, color-wise.

(Just ignore the shade names. Those box holders are from the HD lipsticks.)

Aside from the foundation, there are also  three shades of lipsticks from the Soleil collection. I have reviews of both foundation and lipstick (from waaay back); come check them out *here* and *here.*

That's it for my mini haul, guys! Typing this while I'm on my way to work. Hihi.
