Haul: Watsons

Posted on: March 5, 2013

I’ve been itching to go shopping and finally I was able to find the time to do so. I ended up with this gigantic haul from Watsons near my office. Warning: Long Haul Post ahead.

Let’s start with this pair of Watsons Round Puffs, each a set of 100 cotton rounds. I got them both for Php89 (it was on a Buy 1 Take 1 sale). I will always need cotton rounds for my daily skincare, so I thought this was a fair buy.

Next is Nouveau Classic Collection of 6 claw clips. I want to wear my hair down (instead of up in a ponytail as per usual) and clips are the best way to keep it tidy. This cost me Php 84.75.

Speaking of hair, I’m on a mission to redeem my lifeless hair. I’ve already started by using the Pantene Miracle Water from my Dec-Jan BDJ Box and the Snoe Oil for All from my Feb Glamourbox. I decided to go for this Hair Treats Hair Spa in Argan Oil. The instructions are basically to massage onto scalp after shampooing and leave on for about 15 minutes with a shower cap, then rinse off. I’m hoping to do this once a week. This 250-g tub cost me Php72.75.

Next is Myra VitaGlow Tinted Facial Moisturizer with SPF15 in Ivory. In the mornings I have usually been using my Celeteque Hydration Moisturizer plus either my Etude House Precious Mineral BB Cream SPF30 or my Maybelline Shine Free Face Powder SPF18. Lately though I’m getting very pressed for time and I want a faster routine for those types of mornings. A tinted moisturizer would serve as moisturizer, sunblock, and face base at the same time and would save me loads of time. It comes sealed for your protection, and this 35-ml tube cost Php135.

Since I couldn’t test it out in the store and there was only one available shade there (ivory), I decided to immediately break it out and swatch it.

It may look a little too light for me, but blending it further makes it look more natural and closer to my skin tone.

I also went ahead and bought two products from Ever Bilena: an eye pencil and a lipstick. This Evera Eye Pencil with Aloe Vera and Vitamin E is a very short brown pencil and cost only Php35.

The lipstick I bought is Ever Bilena Matte Lipstick in Pink Flame, which cost Php155 (the most expensive item in this haul). It’s an MLBB shade that was the only one that struck my fancy among all the available shades, including those of other lipstick types.

I went ahead and swatched both the eyeliner and the lipstick. The lipstick is a nice safe pink and the eyeliner is a dark brown, which is exactly what I was hoping for.

Finally, what is a haul without nail products? I found that Color Trends has new shades (yay!) and I chose this yellow one called Sherbet Mango Yellow. It’s of course the usual price of Php19.75. Next is Bobbie Cocktail Hour Gradation Nail Polish in Pink Cadillac, for Php80. Lastly, a bottle of Chic Nail Color in Love Orchid, a dainty frosted pink, for Php29.25.

The gradation nail polish is so interesting! I haven’t done gradation on my nails yet, and I can’t wait to find the time to try this out. I couldn’t resist opening it, to show you how sparkly this set is. Check out the glitters on that third bottle.

There you have it! All these items cost me just a little over Php700. Have you tried any of these? Let me know!

Great drugstore haul! I agree, can’t have enough cotton rounds. Saizen also has a good deal P88 for 180 cotton rounds.

Hi Eula! Ooh, I haven’t seen the cotton rounds in Saizen yet, I must go check it out the next time I’m there. Saizen’s a great treasure trove!

Hello! I just discovered your blog and have been reading your posts. I envy your nail polish savvy! I could feel your excitement everytime you write a post about nail varnishes. =) My nail routine is pretty basic which simply means that I just trim and file them once a week. Very boring.

By the way, I hope we could follow each other (as well as on Bloglovin). It would be great to share thoughts and ideas. My blog is: lavita-est-bella.blogspot.com

Thank you! I am still learning and I do hope to become better at it! I’ll follow you at Bloglovin. 🙂
