November 2010 Collective Haul
The Face Shop Peeling Day Honey Black Sugar
My aunt went to The Face Shop in Koreatown (Manhattan) to buy some masks for her friend and used my points to purchase this for me. (She thought that my points would expire? I don’t really know how their system works since I go once in a blue moon :X)
Lancome Teinte Miracle in 2W and 7W
*Sigh* The troubles my face and neck shades bring me..I can’t get foundations matched correctly. The MUA there told me I was 2W (she matched it to my face) and I asked what it would be matched to my neck and she said 7W. She was really nice and filled up the whole sample container with product. Now I just need to try them out a couple of times first. I think 7W might fit me more because of my tanned neck area. Has anyone else tried the new Lancome foundation?
Everyone’s posts about this blush made me really tempted to buy this. It’s such a lovely color. Very different for me since I’ve been really into pink shades. When the MUA tried it on me, she applied it pretty heavily, and I had to go yum cha and eat dim sum with my mom and her friends afterwards (was very self-conscious that they’d notice I was wearing makeup). But nothing my fingers couldn’t fix lol When my mom’s friends saw me they even said my face was slimmer/narrower. I don’t know if it’s because of the way the blush was or because of shadows in the restaurant, but it made me nice ^__^
MAC Face & Body in C2
I was finally able to exchange for a darker shade (suggested by the MUA) the day I went to pick up My Highland Honey. I think it might be a smidgen too light, but if I am able to lose my neck’s tan I don’t think it’ll be a problem. I’ve been wearing it for a few days and I don’t think the difference is ghastly.
Ecotools Blush Brush
I’ve also wanted this for a while now. Lil Lady’s Life and many other bloggers said they recommended this blush brush and I can’t agree more ^__^
L to R: Beautymate Purifying and Hydrating Nano Mask & Shiseido gift from my aunt
My lovely aunt, who also started me on my whole skincare journey lol, bought the Shiseido Benefiance set from Macy’s and gave me the softener/toner to try. And since she’s soo nice, she also let me have the samples since I’ve wanting to try the White Lucent line but it is just too expensive. Not only that, shared a whole box of Beautymate masks with me. Ahh..I feel guilty!
St. Ives Oatmeal & Shea Butter Moisturizing Body Wash – travel size
The cold/windy weather that’s been in NYC has taken its toll on my skin..now it’s all dry, itchy, patchy, etc. Very disgusting looking! I didn’t want to commit to a full bottle because my family would nag me for wasting money if I didn’t use it. Hopefully this will work if not..lotion here I come!
I didn't get to go shopping on Black Friday, but that's alright. Can't wait to hear about everyone else's purchases lol.
