Haul: February 2014

Posted on: February 26, 2014

Haven’t bought any new stuff for some time, until now. Here is a short list of things I got for the month of February.

1. Sampleroom Haul

As soon as H2O+ released their samples through Sampleroom, I grabbed the overnight moisturizer (140 points). Along with it I grabbed another one of the Sappe drinks (the glutathione one, 10 points) and surprisingly received two bottles! I also got a surprise sample vial of Celeteque Cleansing Oil which I use a lot, so I’m quite happy to get this. Now I have a travel bottle, woot! Thanks Sampleroom!

2. Landmark Travel Brush Set

Sometimes I am such in a hurry in the mornings that I just slap on my face base and just apply the rest of my makeup in the office. Unfortunately my brushes are too bulky to keep bringing, so I bought this travel brush set from Landmark (Php239.75). It consists of a mini-kabuki brush, a powder/blush brush, an eyeshadow/concealer brush, a blending brush, and an included cloth pouch. The bristles are soft and the handles are short but handy enough. Unfortunately it seems like the pouch is a tad small and can’t comfortably hold the brushes.

3. Empty makeup tubs

I bought myself more of these empty makeup tubs. The blue one (Php21.95) is meant to hold my antihistamine tabs. I was planning to depot some of my stuff, notably the Essence eyeshadow base, and put it into one of the purple ones (two for Php24.75, plus a spatula). I bought the gold-lidded one (Php19.95) just because it looks so pretty!

4. OMG Nail Polishes

What is a trip to Landmark without grabbing a few bottles of OMG? I of course couldn’t resist and got myself a couple – a green one, Gossip, and a taupe/brown one, Sunny Tan. Watch out for the swatches!

5. Calligraphy pens

I’ve also been on a hunt for not-so-expensive pens for my calligraphy practice. I’ve been sporadically uploading my cursive exercises on twitter, but I’ve only been using a regular gel pen. I wanted something more “legit”, and I finally managed to spot a couple at Power Books Greenbelt 3. One is an Artline Calligraphy Pen (width 2.0) for Php64.50 and works like a regular marker but with a flat tip instead of pointed. The other is a Sakura Pigma Brush Pen (!!!) for Php70.50. It has a brush tip, and works just like a paintbrush so it’s a little bit more tricky to use. I’m so addicted to these right now!

[…] One of the recent releases by Sampleroom is a line of skincare samples from H2O+, a brand that focuses on marine materials as main ingredients in their line. This particular product, the Night Oasis Oxygenating Rejuvenator, is a night cream-gel dedicated to recharge dull skin and smoothens the appearance of fine lines. I was already sold on the idea of an overnight repair cream, as I really enjoyed my experience with the Laneige Water Sleeping Pack. I was expecting this to be a similar product, so I immediately got myself this sample. I posted about this previously in a haul. […]
