December Haul 2013

5:59:00 PM

Aaahh, it's that time of the year again where I receive presents from friends and family. Just wanted to share with you my last purchases for the year 2013 and a few of the gifts that I received for the month of December.

 December Haul

This is the very first present that I received last December.  I suddenly received an email from the beautiful people of Bobbi Brown Philippines, telling me to pick up a gift at the Bobbi Brown counter. It was such a pleasant surprise. I received a Bobbi Brown Creamy Matte Lip Color in True Pink and a couple of Bobbi Brown Smokey Mascara Samples.

I then bought this popular DKNY Be Delicious perfume from my bestie Khymm of Miss Shopcoholic. She didn't like the scent anymore and there's still 90% left in the bottle, so I offered to buy it.

I recently went to our local MAC Counter here in Cebu located at Rustan's Ayala Center. I repurchased the Mac Brush Cleanser and the Mac Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation in NC35 which was hubby's Christmas present for me. I just hit pan on my Mac Studio Fix Powder in C40 and noticed that my skin color got lighter. So, I had to do a shade match again at the MAC counter and found out that C40 became too yellow and dark for me.

I also bought the Mac Lipstick in Flat Out Fabulous from the Retro Matte Collection. I just really fell in love with the shade and didn't have anything that's close to this color in my kit, so I bought it. By the way, Mac Lipstick in Flat Out Fabulous is now included in the permanent line. Yay!

I also did a last minute online shopping at and got Covergirl Lip Perfection Lipsticks in Enamor, Rush, and Fervor. I have always wanted to try the popular Covergirl Lashblast Mascara in Very Black, so I bought it when I saw it was available. I also bought the Wet n Wild Coloricon Eyeshadow Trio in Silent Treatment since I didn't have similar shades in my kit.

I went to the Face Shop to buy presents for my girl friends. I remembered reading really good reviews about the Face Shop Style My Eyebrow brow pencil, so I bought one for myself in the shade #03.

On Christmas morning, I received these presents from my Brothers! The ELF 32 Piece Cool Eyeshadow Palette was from my older brother while the Body Shop Strawberry Shower Gel was from my younger brother. I just find it amusing that my brothers gave me beauty related stuff. Yay!

Early December, I ordered the Sampleroom Goodie Bag for only Php 1,299 and was shipped out on Dec. 19. I got the huge package on Dec 27 and tadaah, I got a lot of products!

Lastly, these PlayStation 3 Accessories are the most expensive present I bought for myself this Christmas. I got the PS3 Move Motion Controller, PS3 Eye Camera and the PS3 Just Dance 3 game. I plan on buying PS3 Zumba next...hehe

How bout you ladies, I am excited to see what you got last Christmas!
I wish you all a happy and bountiful New Year 2014.

Until next time.
