Sunday Haul (September 4, 2011): Cosmetics, Skin/Nail/Hair Care


Time for another Sunday Haul!

As I mentioned in my previous posts, SM City Manila had a 3-Day Sale (Sept. 2-4) I unfortunately reached the 3rd day! I did not plan on buying anything at all (well, except for makeup remover) since I am saving up. All my walking around made me lose my will power, and all the marketing strategies that you could think of conquered.

What better way to share what I bought than through an entry and a video!

1. Fanny Serrano 2-Way Cake in Rajah PHP 399.00—I actually bought this on the 31st of August, so it doesn’t really count as part of this Sunday Haul. But for the sake of mentioning, I could’ve bought it at 10% cheaper if I purchased it last Sunday! Rajah is the perfect shade for contouring. Fellow gurus have raved about it, and I decided to give it a try! It’s a new shade, and one of the darkest, too. I suggest you try it out, because there are only a few matte contouring powders out there.DSC06060DSC060662. Bench Fix Professional Agent Bond Styling Gum PHP 95.00—I have already reviewed this product in this post just because it WORKS AMAZINGLY WELL. I am very happy I tried this out! Hairsprays move over, waxes have taken over. I was pretty enthusiastic as I wrote the review on this baby, so better yet read the post for me, baby!

Nails Cuticle Remover and Nail Polish Remover PHP 18.00 for both—nothing special, but Nails is the brand I’ve been using since forever for my nails and toes.DSC062824. Etude House Eye and Lip Makeup Remover PHP 198.00—After using the Mascara Remover from the same brand, I decided to switch back again, just because I want to. Nothing really wrong with the Mascara Remover! DSC062835. Ever Bilena Brown EyePencil PHP 80.00—the perfect shade for my brows! I used it today for school and the color was just amazing. I used it together with the darker shade of brown for the outer corners.DSC062866. Fanny Serrano Long Wear Gel Eyeliner PHP 225.00—I got this baby for 10% less! Would you believe it?! They’re finally back on stock! I was going to buy another jar of the Maybelline Lasting Drama Gel Liner which costs PHP 449.00! But when I saw this baby, I just had to buy it. 225.00 is freaking affordable for such a huge container of gel liner! I already have the review on this product in my mind! Good stuff.DSC06292DSC062957. L’Oreal Paris Base Magique Transforming Smoothing Primer PHP 945.00 (but I got it for PHP 803.00 because of the sale)—just like the styling gum, I also have reviewed this product already. I was 10x more enthusiastic when I wrote that post. So read it for me, doll! All I can say it, THIS IS THE BEST PURCHASE I HAVE EVER MADE!

Goody Hand Mirror PHP 309.75 (but I got it for PHP 245.00 because of the sale)—I know it’s a huge mirror. But this is the way I roll! This is my 6th Goody hand mirror. All the other 5 has gone to mirror heaven.DSC06318

  1. nice haul :) i would prefer caronia nail polish remover because it smells better than any nail polish remover :) the normal nail polish remover smells like BLAH :P

  2. Hi Jenny! Hahah I might have to agree with you. But I want to stick to the normal acetone :D Gets the polish off faster!

  3. May refill ba yung FS?

  4. Hi Anonymous. I haven't seen refills of FS powders around.

  5. Hi say! Do you think the Fanny Serrano two way cake works well on oily/combination skin? Does it work well as a bronzer too? I tried the Fanny Serrano Gel liner before and it really dried out quickly on me :( I had high hopes for it :( Im glad it works well for you :)

  6. Hi Espresso doll! Yes it would work well on oily/combo skin type. :) I use Rajah to contour! It works great :D Oh really? I don't have that problem pa right now. Maybe you should store it in a cool place! :D

  7. umm where can i buy fanny serano make ups here in manila?? ty
