It's been awhile since I've been to the mall. Personally, I'd prefer staying at home like the whole month so I could save myself from splurging but oh holiday comes and the sales are on! And when it comes to beauty products, Watsons is always my first stop. I love that they have everything from makeup to skincare. The holiday sales are starting so of course, I had to check them out. There are some new brands (or not really new but I've been hibernating in my cave so I'm not that updated *big grin*) and there are products that I've been eyeing because well, bloggers are raving about it. Yes I'm looking at you 'Maybelline Velvet MATTE Liquid Lipstick'!
So yeah I did a little shopping and here are the items that I got.
1. Wish Nail Color Collection - "Classic" - PhP99.00
We don't have 'Fall' in Philippines but I still love to celebrate this season and this nail polish set is perfect! Fall is all about the dark, reds, purples and a bit of nudes & creams to neutralize everything. So this color collection is on point! This is originally priced at PhP99 but I got it for a discounted price of PhP89.00. It's super cheap! I've tried other Wish nail polish and even though it's not as comparable to branded nail polish, the quality is still decent. Plus I only paint my nails like once a week so what's to complain?
2. Maybelline Velvet MATTE Liquid Lipstick in "MAT 6" - PhP299.00
Aaaand my love for 'fall' doesn't end there. Of course, I have to get me some purple'ish or something bolder red color for my lipstick. Since I've been checking out Maybelline Velvet MATTE (hey there gorgeous!) why not choose one from the collection right? Upon checking out and swatching on some testers, I fell inlove right there and then with "MAT 6". It's a gorgeous berry color and it's just the right feels for fall. I've been reading reviews about the whole Velvet MATTE collection and many bloggers are raving about it so I'm very excited to try it. I'll post my review soon! The saleslady said that this is originally priced at PhP349 but since they're having the holiday sales, it's now priced at PhP299.
3. Collagen by Watsons CC Cream (PhP249.50) and Facial Mask (PhP55.00)
I have not seen this brand before so it must be new. It's a brand/collection under Watsons with "Collagen" as the key ingredient but to be honest, they had me at gold packaging. haha!Sorry if I'm being biased guys. But really, because of the packaging, it looks so highend. They have few other items but I'm curious on CC cream since I've only tried Korean CC creams before so I got one and yes people, I had to get the facial mask! You know that I'm a sucka for masks! LOL. This CC Cream is originally priced at PhP499 but Watsons have a 50% discount on it so I only got it for PhP249.50. Gotta love Watsons!
4. Glam Works Skin Perfector BB Cream - PhP149.00
As if the CC cream was not enough, I had to get me some BB cream too! I've never seen this one before and it's so cheap so I wanna try it out. You know I love trying out affordable products (that's available locally) so you guys can also try it out in case the quality is A okay! Plus, it's pink and it's cute. 'Nuff said. Watch out for my review soon!
5. Chap Ice Revo Mini Lip Balm in Cherry - PhP69.00
Does this remind you of something? Something...something...ahh! Yes! That's right! EOS Lip balm. I only know one brand of lip balm that has this kind of packaging and that's EOS so when I saw this, I was really curious. I think this is also an international brand since I saw this in Amazon. Anyway, I got the mini version just to try it out if I like it. The regular size is as same size with EOS, I think it was 7g, this mini version is 4g. It also comes in Strawberry and Watermelon variant. Yum!
6. Purederm Vitalizing Green Tea Pack (PhP30.00) and BeautyFix Peel-Off Mask (PhP22.00)
7. Watsons Cream Hand Soap - PhP149.00
These two are last minute items. It's currently on a "Buy 1 Take 1" promo so I have to get it. These smells so yummy and you save so much. Gotta have these!
So there you go pretties. A mini haul for today. I'll be posting separate reviews for some of the products here. If you have questions, feel free to ask. Thank you! ^_^
