January Haul

Yes, a haul post again. Doesn't seem very exciting. But my spending journal needs to be...updated. I will try my best to post up a review soon. I even wrote down my thoughts! Just have to find time to type it all out :] Enough with things that I keep saying I will do (:X). Here's what I hauled in January:

Kose Cosmeport Softymo Speedy Cleansing Oil
I was finishing up the Mandom Cleansing Express Sebum so I thought I'd try out different cleansing oils again.

Hurricane Nail Art Paint
Bought this at the beauty supply store in my neighborhood. I didn't have anything like this before and I wanted to try something new. Not sure how it compares to Art Deco, but this chipped within a day or two (I only used it as a French tip though.)

MAC Fix+
Usually, people get the Evian Water Facial Spray after they finish their Fix+, but I did it the other way around. I felt it was a bit on the expensive side, but there are better things added to it when compared to the Evian spray (which is apparently just mineral water?). And I don't use it as much so I think it'll last a long time :]

Maybelline Pure Concealer in Light
I went into the local pharmacy in search of the SkinMD Shielding Lotion but I couldn't find it on the shelves. Instead, I saw this. I'm having a bit of a concealing craze right now. And it says it has salicylic acid. I couldn't resist :X Will see how this goes. I know big chain drugstores don't sell these anymore but it's still on the Maybelline website (the last time I checked.)

SkinMD Natural Shielding Lotion
All those reviews on this sucked me in. I was going to wait and see if I would be lucky enough to win a giveaway. But...when I went to the pharmacy that the site said carried it and saw that it was nearly half the price I couldn't resist. I plan to use this after I finish my current moisturizer. I hope it works well for me.

I think I did pretty well at controlling my spendings. Compared to previous months. I don't think I'm going to be buying much unless I finish a product (skincare wise) or use up a noticeable amount (makeup wise). Need to help my parents save up money because they're going to start remodeling/rebuilding the new house in the spring and they'll need all the money they have. Can't spend money on things that'll make me happy because the house will make everyone happy. At least I hope so. Family relationships with relatives have gotten very bad within the last couple of months. But that's for another post if I feel angered enough that I need to rant.


  1. Wow, you did control it!
    I was expecting more, lol. xD

    Good luck with the family issues/new house!

  2. Thanks for visiting Mandy and What a nice haul you did :) I always wanted to try the Mac water, let us know how you feel about it :) does it have scent? also with the Maybelline Concealer, I got one too, it's soooo good I love that, it covers up my blemishes really well and also you know it's just as good as clinique's consealer but way more cheaper

  3. Thanks Maggie :]

    & Fix+ does have a scent. It's not like a strong scent IMO I find it calming? lol I don't know how to explain it.
