The Roundup: 2018 Q1 Beauty and Skincare Haul

The Roundup: 2018 Q1 Beauty and Skincare Haul

Inspired by this post from r/beautytalkph, I’m starting this new series where I’ll list all my beauty and skincare purchases. Items that were delivered during this period are also in this list.

I’m writing this with the intention of keeping myself in check. It’s a way for me to keep track of all my purchases. And hopefully, the next time I think of buying anything, I’ll look at this list and say, “Girl, you already have something like that. You don’t need to buy that”. I’m trying to go on a low-buy, but I just can’t help myself.

Makeup

First up on this list are my Colourpop haul, most of these I scored during their 40% off sale. I’m trying to up my eyeshadow game this year and got carried away by purchasing a lot of palettes. I have All I See is Magic, Double Entendre, You Had Me at Hello (my favorite!), Yes Please! and Golden State of Mind (which I got for free!). I’ve destashed the Yes Please palette because it’s way too warm for me. See other Colourpop palettes here.

Colourpop Haul

I also got the following some lip products: iluvsarahii BUNDLE, Bumble Pencil, and 951 Pencil. I wanted to try their eyebrow pencils and got Precision Brow Pencil in Black N’ Brown and Brow Boss Pencil in Dark Brown. I wish I had gotten their brow pomade as well. For face, I got the No Filter Concealer in Light 20 - renamed as Light 18 for highlighting, No Filter Concealer in Medium 30 - renamed as Medium 28 which I use for concealing and the Super Shock Highlighter in Lunch Money. The highlighter I’m thinking of destashing because I already have Churro and Flexitarian and these take forever to pan.

Focallure and Morphe 39A Palette

To add to my growing eyeshadow collection, I also ordered the Focallure 18 Colors Eyeshadow Palette in Bright Lux. I ordered this from missrose.ph in Shopee. This item shipped from China and took almost a month to get here. My biggest palette to date is the Morphe 39A Dare to Create Palette which I ordered from Cheeky Posh. I haven’t even touched this because I’m so scared to ruin it.

Physician’s Formula Murumuru Butter Bronzer in Bronzer and Maybelline products

I’ve also purchased my first bronzer: Physician’s Formula Murumuru Butter Bronzer in Bronzer. I am in love with bronzers now, and I’m trying not to hoard anymore. It is so buttery (duh!) and smells like a vacation. I got the Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Pressed Powder in 130 Buff Beige and Maybelline Fit Me Shine-Free Matte Foundation Stick in 120 Classic Ivory during the sale in Lazada. The powder is great for touch-ups, and I don’t like the stick foundation because it disappears and separates at the end of the day.

Skincare

The Ordinary

I ordered these The Ordinary items from The Makeup Atelier last December as well. I’ve already integrated both the Lactic Acid 5% + HA 2% and Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 in my skincare routine. I’ve yet to use the 100% Plant-Derived Squalane once I use up my Rose Hip Seed Oil.

Watsons and Human Heart Nature

From Watsons, I got some everyday skincare essentials: St. Ives Timeless Skin Collagen Elastin Facial Moisturizer and Biore Aqua Rich UV Watery Essence. From Human Heart Nature, I purchased and re-purchased the Nourishing Facial Wash. I alternate it with the Hydrating Creamy Wash. Also tried out the Hydrating Toner and the Hydrating Face Mist. I love hydrating products!

Tools

Organizers

Moving on to tools, I’ve invested in some organization items, all ordered last December again. I got a brush holder from lipstickaddictph (Shopee), a rotating organizer from marycarmelinefijo (Shopee) and a 2 layer acrylic holder from the SM Store.

Daiso

From Daiso, I made sure to restock (I mean, hoard) their Makeup Brush Cleaner and Puff Sponge Detergent. These are my HG tool cleansers. These cleaners are so hard to get a hold-off. I’ve been visiting Daiso weekly for three months before I got them. They’re never in stock at the same time, so I keep getting backups. Also lucked out on a Brush Cleaning Mat (no photo, but it looks like this) and a Brush Drying Stand during the aforementioned trips looking for the brush cleaners.

Brushes

And since I decided to do my makeup every day, I decided to get more brushes. I got all of these from the SM Store: Real Techniques Powder Brush, Real Techniques Blush Brush, EcoTools Eye Enhancing Duo Set, Marionnaud 13 Concealer Brush and a Marionnaud 21 Eyeshadow Brush. From an FB destash group, I got some brand new Real Techniques Setting Brush and Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge (not in photo).

Travel sknicare I did some traveling this quarter as well so I purchased a cosmetics pouch from Keep It Together (KIT). As well as some small bottles for my skincare from Muji, Beabi, and KIT. I’m thinking of doing a separate blog post about this.
