Collective Haul #2

by - October 01, 2013

Hello everyone! I bought quite a number of things these past months so I thought I'd share it with you guys. Just a quick disclaimer, I bought everything using my own money and I don't have any intention to brag in any way. Enjoy this haul! :)

RM 11 for 5 pcs

The only thing that I bought from Sasa are these masks. Sasa was having '4+1 = RM 11' sale which was usually RM 10 for 4 masks so I grabbed some of my favourite mask from Sasa (Aqua Boost Moisturizing Mask) and some of the other kinds.
1. Nature Republic Snail Therapy Mask Sheet
RM 15.40 for 10 pcs

I picked up these masks because they're so cheap and I always wanted to try masks from Nature Republic. I haven't tried them yet, I know they sound a bit weird and slimy.... but I don't know, I'm a lil obsessed with moisturising masks. I just hope that they're good and doesn't smell like snails.

2. Skin79 Vip Gold BB Cream (15 g)
RM 25.70 (Including shipping)

I always wanted to try BB Creams from Skin79 because of all their raves. I decided to buy the one that is meant for dry skin since I have pretty dry skin. And it works really really well for my skin, very moisturising and has decent coverage. 

3. Lovely Me:Ex Makeup Base in 02 Violet
RM 14.90

I needed a makeup base since I don't have any, I bought this one because it's cheap, but sadly it doesn't really work for me.
This is my first time buying things from I was a bit worried at first because the website doesn't seem as reliable because the stuff that they sell are so cheap and they offer free shipping worldwide! But I took the risks and bought two things from them and fortunately, everything arrived safely at my home. The delivery took a bit long, about 3-4 weeks maybe, but I don't really mind though. 

1. Leather Cylindrical Brushes Holder
$ 8.33 or RM 27++

Isn't it cute?? :D Looks really similar to the Sigma one but a tad bit smaller and shorter. I thought it's gonna be bigger, because it looks big in the pictures online. It is suitable to keep brushes with short handles. I bought it mainly because I needed a bag/holder to keep my brushes while travelling, and this is so perfect for it. 

2. 4GB Magic Ring MP3 Player in Pink
$ 10.99 or RM 35++

I wanted an MP3 player as it is easier to listen to music on an MP3 player rather than on my phone. I wanted to buy an iPod Shuffle at first, but then I saw this MP3 online, it's only RM 35 and an iPod Shuffle would at least cost me RM 140++. This MP3 has pretty good quality though, for it's price. The battery doesn't last as long as the iPod Shuffle, but it's definitely worth the money. 

Watsons and Guardian
1. IN2IT Gel Liner Pen Waterproof
RM 19.88

This set comes with 2 gel liners in brown and shimmery nude. I've tried the brown one, it's pretty good, I must say. It's long-wearing and waterproof. 

2. Essence Lipstick in All About Cupcake
RM 9.90

My blogger friend Imah and my lovely reader Liyana Ismail recommended me this lipstick a while ago and I want to thank them because it is a really good lipstick! The colour is perfect for everyday wear and very creamy too. Thank you so much Imah and Liyana for recommending! This lipstick could be my new favourite. :D

3. Neutrogena Alcohol-Free Toner
RM 14.31

This is my first repurchase for a skin care product. I've never repurchased any skin care product before because I couldn't find one that suits my skin best. This toner is soooooo good for dry skin, my skin never felt dry or stretched or anything. So good and affordable too.

4. Hada Labo Super Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizing Face Wash
RM 26.01

I was looking for my favourite Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser but couldn't find it so I grabbed this one because it is meant for dry skin. I fell in love the first time I tried it, it's so moisturising and smells like milk or whipped cream, oh my goodness. It is a bit pricey to me but it is so worth it! If you have dry skin and have been struggling to find a good moisturising facial wash, I highly recommend this one! 

5. Olay Moisturising Cream
RM 19.90

This is another new favourite. I used to have dry patches on my cheeks and around my mouth and those are gone now, all thanks to this moisturiser!

6. Essence Fix & Matte Translucent Loose Powder
RM 18.90

I wanted to buy the ELF HD Powder and I found this one, it looks similar to the ELF one so I decided to buy it. 

7 & 8. Essence Lip Liner in 04 Honey Bun and 11 In The Nude
RM 4.50 each

These lip liners are so good! I really love the one in 'In The Nude', the perfect nude liner for me!

1. BH Cosmetics 12 Pcs Classic Brush Set
RM 30 

MySale had a BH Cosmetics sale last month and they had this brush set on sale for only RM 30! I did posted about this sale on my Facebook page. There's going to be another BH Cosmetics sale up on Mysale tomorrow so if you missed this one, you have another chance to buy them tomorrow. These brushes are so good in quality, the bristles are really soft and there was no shedding or bleeding during the first wash. I love every brush in this set! I'm so glad that I bought it during the sale. Oh and it comes with a case too! 

2. BH Cosmetics 10 Pcs Eco Brush Set
RM 40 

I also ended up buying this one because this set has a lot of raves on their website. The bristles are sooooo soft and they also doesn't shed or bleed during the first wash. I love the blending brush so much, makes blending eyeshadows easier than ever!

3. Covergirl Eye Enhancers 4-Kit Shadows in Urban Basics
RM 20

I randomly picked up this one for no reason. LOL. The colours are so pretty though.

4 & 5. Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation in 56 Light Brown and 51 Light Vanilla
RM 20

I loooooove this foundation! This foundation has been in my wishlist for the longest time but never had the chance to try it. I wanted the one in the shade 52 Vanilla but it was out of stock so I chose 51 Light Vanilla and 53 Light Beige but Mysale sent me the wrong shade which is 56 Light Brown. I emailed them asking if I could replace it with the right shade but they don't have it in their stock, so I decided to keep it. I still could make it work though. 

6 & 7. Covergirl Outlast Smoothwear Lip Liner in 130 Nude and Covergirl Lip Perfection Lip Liner in 210 Seduce
RM 10 each

These were random too. I love the Lip Perfection Lip Liner better, the Outlast Smoothwear is a bit too dark for a nude lip liner. I don't know what's wrong with me, I've been really into lip liners lately. 

Dior Rosy Glow Healthy Glow Awakening Blush in 001 Petal
RM 75

How stunning is this blush? This blush was in my The Impossible Wishlist #2, I explained why I wanted this blush in that post. It is so beautiful, even more beautiful in person. :') I've never found anything like it before, like seriously, it's so unique! I'd definitely do a more in depth review on this blush soon.
Black Bear Album by Andrew Belle
$ 17.97 or RM 61.58

If you have been following my blog, you'd know that I'm a big fan of Andrew Belle. He came out with a new album called Black Bear last month and I just had to get it. I was kind of disappointed at first because the songs in this album are completely different from his old songs. I personally prefer his old songs but this album is not as bad though. Sometimes it's good to listen to something new, right? My favourite songs from this album are Pieces, The Enemy and Want What It Wants.
Q and A a Day: 5-Year Journal by Potter Style
$ 17.67 or RM 57++

I saw a review of this journal on someone's blog last year and been wanting to get it since. I finally got it now. This is also my first purchase from Book Depository. The delivery took a bit longer than I expected but the book came in a good condition, so it's fine with me. This journal contains 365 questions that you have to answer everyday, for 5 years. And after 5 years, you can read back your answers and see how they change. It's a very interesting journal, can't wait to start it next year!

Phew, we're finally at the end of this haul. I hope you guys enjoyed this post, do let me know if you want a review of any products above, I'd happily do it for you guys. :) Thank you so much for reading my blog, stay tuned for a lot more posts!

P.S: My sister, Nadhirah Ismailjee took all these pictures above, thanks a bunch!

My favorites are The Enemy, Sister, Want what it wants, so sort of similar ;) Ive only got the album on my phone but I'm thinking I might just fork out for an actual album to play in the car haha. Lovely blog post! x
