2012 Year End Sales Haul

Okay, I know that one of my New Year Resolution for 2013 is to go on a spending ban on beauty products but I bought these items over the last 2 weeks of the month of December so were still good. ;p 
I picked a couple of items from ELF. I got this Duo Cream eyeshadow in Berry Mix to serve makeup base for those neutral smokey eye looks. I also picked up this Elf face powder in Soft Beige as blot powder because I tend to get oily throughout the day.
 I then went to Etude House to purchase this Skin Malgem Toner. I specifically went there for this toner because I read reviews that this helps in minimizing pores and lessening acne scars, so I'm really excited to try this out. I also picked up an Etude House angled blending brush becuase the brush set I had was a bit lacking on blending brush and this one was thick and soft, just perfect for blending in the crease. I got the moistful sheet mask as a gift from purchase because my total purchase was over P500.
 I had to repuchase my revlon colorstay liquid foundation becuase I ran out of it and so far this foundation has been my go to foundation for years now.
Also picked up this medicine dispenser for my daily meds and compact puff becuase my other one was a bit tattered and dirty.
 I was pleasantly surprised that the Watson's in Centrio Mall carry Shawill products and Shawill makes makeup brushes that are reasonably priced and of great quality. I picked-up a couple, an angled blush brush and foundation brush, its great becuase I can use them alternately with my other brushes and I don't have to worry about running out of clean brushes because I have back-ups. I also got an Elf powder or complection brush for applying my loose setting powder. 
I also got another bottle of Revlon Top Quik Dry Top Coat becuase I just recently ran out of it. This top coat is great, it makes my nail polish more vibrant and it protects the polish from chipping.

I was not able to resist picking up this Majolica Majorca Puff de Cheek "Cherry Maccaroon" blush. First of all, the packaging is absolutely adorable. Who could walk away from this product, I saw it there and I just had to have it.  The blush itself is beautiful, it's a corally pink with a hint of gold shimmer and it just gives you the most beautiful glow. I will however say that you need to use a light hand in applying because it can look a bit clown-like if its overdone.

Well, that's all for my haul and now I'm officially on my beauty spending ban. There may be some hauls here and there but most of it, if not all will be product repurchase.  


  1. I've never seen a medicine dispenser like that one, I really like it. The one I have is just an overly large pill box. Let me know if you like the Skin Malgem Toner, it sounds good. Also, I wanted to let you know that I nominated you for an award! If you'll head over to my blog, you can see it. :)

  2. Thanks for the nomination Ashley! I really love the toner, its so refreshing and I found that it does help reduce the pore size and my acne scars have lightened a bit. Give the toner a try. =)
