Becoming Sleek

My First Haul Post

Posted on: January 23, 2013

My first haul post! I am so excited! I was finally able to get my shopping done this week, and I got the following:

Three San San nail polishes from HBC, Php37 each. Shades: Amethyst, Arctic Green, and Lavender Blush. I needed a purple polish to go with my cocktail dress that I wore to a wedding. I bought two shades of purple just to be safe. I’ll be putting up the swatches soon.


Lemony Flutter Cuticle Cream from Lush, Php450; Lander Nail Polish Remover from Landmark, Php129.75; Nivea Baby Smoothy Cream from Landmark, Php164.75. As I have developed a rather serious hobby in nail painting, I decided I should be willing to invest in products that will help protect my nails. I’ve seen a lot of recommendations from other lacqueristas for Lemony Flutter, and I’m glad to have found some tubs in the Trinoma branch of Lush. I am also about to run out of my Caronia nail polish remover, so I grabbed this bottle of of Lander. I’ve also gotten raves about the Smoothy Cream, used as a moisturizer. I can’t wait to try this out.


Elf Brightening Eyeshadows, Php129.75; Fanny Serrano Dark Brown Eyebrow Pencil, Php65; Artist Studio Concealer Brush, Php49.75; all from Landmark Trinoma. I wanted more neutral eyeshadow colors to play with, so I grabbed this neutral palette from the Elf counter. I also broke my Nichido eye pencil, so I decided to try out a new brand. Lastly, I’m trying to complete a set of makeup brushes, and I decided to get a concealer brush for now.


White plastic trays from Landmark Trinoma, 3 for Php49.75. I needed something to organize the small mess that is my makeup collection. These trays are cheap enough, and small enough to fit my dresser/shelf.


I can’t wait to try them all out! Hopefully I can get things properly documented so you can see some of these reviewed here.

[…] I have finally completed the swatches for these San San Nail Polishes that I acquired a few weeks ago. […]

How did the Lander Nail Polish Remover work out for you? I just bought one yesterday and it’s a total dump. It took 5 cotton pads soaked with this stuff to remove the lacquer on my left index finger. Not to mention, it turned my right thumb and index finger blue! I got mine from PCX and it’s my first time to try it out so I’m not sure if I just got a bum stock or this thing’s really terrible.

Hi Jessica! The Lander Polish Remover did not work at all for me as well! I think it’s really a bad product, and it turned me off on other Lander products as well.

Thanks for your reply, Pat!

I was trying to look for other reviews on this product and your entry is the only one I found that talked about it.

Such a waste of a hundred + bucks!

Although their Cuticle Remover is not at all that bad, the rest of their items are really crappy, especially the lotions!

Thanks again and more power to your blog!

I’m planning a review across several nail polish remover brands soon, so watch out for it. 🙂

Thanks for visiting, Jessica!
