Weekend Bits

As you probably already know. there were lots of sales going on all over the metro this past weekend. I didn't feel up to the challenge of enduring the traffic jams AND THEN elbowing my way through the feeding frenzy at the major commercial areas, so I chose to take the road less travelled.

I managed to pick up a few stuff nonetheless:

From Watson's

1. Marrionnaud Eyebrow brush and spoolie- Still on the eyebrow thing and getting sick of the dinky eyebrow brushes that usually come with eyebrow powders.

2. Watson's Brand Cotton Pads- if you're a big cotton pad user, I recommend getting this. It's PHP 46 for a pack of 150 pads + 60 pads free. When I checked, you only get about 100 pads from the leading brands for that price.

3. Cyleina Kojic Soap- I'd heard that Cyleina soaps were already available in Watson's but this was my first time to see them. Prolly cuz they're always OOS.

4. Nivea Sparkling White Night Cream- I have a friend who swears by this night cream. She has the nicest skin of anyone I know so I thought I'd give this a try.

5. Pond's White Beauty Nature Naturals Facial Wash- Never had much luck with the brand in the past, but it's just a sachet. How much can it hurt to try, right?

6. Purederm Foot Mask- Repurchased this many times already.
7. Electric toothbrush heads

From HBC

1. Body Recipe Calamansi Roll-On Deo
- heard good things about this and it's always OOS so I  wanted to try it for myself.

2. San-San Blush in 03- a yummy bright pink shade.

3. Hortaleza Professional Keratin Hot Oil Treatment- another repurchase

4. 2-Way Cake Refill in 02- Already hit pan on my current 2-Way Cake foundie. Will test this soon.

And from the department store.

Ever Bilena Mousse Blush in Scarlet- Heads Up! The entire EB mousse line is on sale at PHP 99/each item. I'm crazy about their mousse blushes. This is my fourth one already. It's just too bad that their foundies are all too ligh for me. Included a swatch in case anyone's interested.

Cherry Nail Polish- it's a beautiful burgundy color. I got this for a number of reasons: I liked its long brush handle and it's dirt cheap (PHP 15+) but mostly I got it for entertainment purposes.

Check out the color name. LOLWHUT. (I'm so immature)

I also found this:

e.l.f. Studio Eyebrow Kit
- A personal triumph! Been looking for this for a really long time, but they always seemed to be OOS. I'm very happy with this but check back for the details.

Have a good week, luvs!


  1. Nice haul. I have yet to try that foot scrub, too lazy to open mine. :P

    I love that Marionnaud brush.

  2. Nice finds! I think the cotton pad is a good deal. I'll look for that when I drop by Watson's. LOL @ the name of that nail polish. I think I've heard of that before. But it's super cheap nga for the price of P15.

  3. Hi Catmare. I'm just not sure if it's the regular price or on sale. I'm not picky and I go through cotton pads like nobody's business. I might get a backup soon.

  4. Hi Pammy! I'm like that too.

    I'm amazed at the quality of Marionnaud brushes for their price.

  5. Great finds! I\m into elf also with dr blush on and bronzer:)

  6. I like your haul! And Pussy Red? What the? Hahahaha! :P

  7. Thank you! Which shade do you like? I'll check it out, too!

  8. Hi Lisa! How was your trip?

    Haha. I can't even imagine what it's supposed to mean.

  9. i also have the elf eyebrow kit and i do like it. :D great haul dear!

  10. Nice haul! I have Cherry polishes too. So cheap, no? :) And I also just got a San San blush. I think mine's in shade 2 (or 3, not sure).Not very pigmented but I looooove the glow it gives my cheeks :D

    Following you now :)

  11. watson's baby! i seldom find bloggers who really do haul a with substance... you're one of them, you always have interesting finds love!

  12. hi Jackie, thanks for the info, I should definitely try the Ever Bilena Mouse as per your recommendation! - Mar

  13. Hi Marianne. No problem. Let me know what you think. Thanks for stopping by.

  14. watson's ftw! LOL wow, thanks a lot. i guess that's what being on a tight budget does to a girl. haha.

  15. Hi Aya! I was surprised when I saw it. I thought PHP 20-30 for a nail polish was cheap enough.

    I was kinda disappointed with the san-san blush when I swatched it, but I realized it's good for someone like me who's still getting the hang of powder blushes. i tend to overdo iit. =)

    yay! thanks a lot for following back. I love your blog!

  16. Hi Sugar! Yay! Glad you approve. =))

  17. I used to have that elf studio eyebrow kit, but didn't work for me so I gave it..hehe

  18. aww.. I'm sad to hear that. I'm still getting the hang of using it, too.
