Major Haul: Tsumori Chisato for Shu Uemura love

 I'm seeing stars! A bag and a box of Tsumori Chisato awesomeness!
Oh yes, call me a Shu fanatic, i just can't stop staring at the Tsumori Chisato for Shu Uemura stuff! 
Warning: Picture heavy post. ;)

Vanity Planet pouch, Moon Peach lippie, Planet Cat palette, Planet Ribbon palette, Stardust Highlighter and Mirror
goodies in the pouch... kawaii!
SA Cindy gave me lots of samples plus a Shu fanatic card because of this haul.
My freebies include a Red Juvenus Deluxe Sample Skincare with black mesh kit
and 4 travel sized cleansing oils in a white Shu Uemura drawstring pouch
and of course the Tsumori Chisato for Shu Uemura Mirror with drawstring pouch
Now on to the product close ups!

Rouge Unlimited in Moon Peach, a soft pink suitable for everyday use. (this is made in Japan)

Planet Ribbon Palette (did you know that the palettes are made in Korea?)
Planet Cat Palette
Stardust Cat Highlighter (the highlighter is made in Italy)
I don't need another highlighter but the cute cat packaging lured me into buying this, I promise myself that I WILL use this! hahaha

Hands down, Shu Uemura has the cutest holiday collection this year, i just think it's a bit weird that the products come in from 4 different countries (Japan, Korea, Italy and China), and I can't help but wonder if there is a difference in product quality. But I'm not complaining, i think this collection is worth spending for if you love Shu Uemura just like me. ^_^

Gooddealer loot: Jill Stuart + RMK + Esprique Precious

I looove looove loove packages! (who doesn't?!) Stuff I ordered from gooddealer arrived last Monday (sorry delayed post ^_~) and i'm ecstatic about it. You ask why? Well, mainly because it contains my very first batch of pretty pretty Jill Stuart products! Gooddealer Kevin threw in lots of samples, and it came in the mail so that's a plus. Yay! :) 

I got a Jill Stuart loose powder in 01 Natural
I've tried this already and I'm loving it so far! Very fine powder in a beautiful container; it's not recommended for traveling though, as it is a little bulky. How cute is that super soft powder puff?! You'll really feel like a princess while putting powder on your face. Happiness! ^_^

Jill Stuart loose blush powder in 03 Crimson Flush
gorgeous and unique color! I'm very satisfied with the shade i chose because it compliments my skin tone well.
Jill Stuart Mix Blush Compact in 07 Lovely Tulip
I like that this mix blush compact is a bit shimmery as it adds glowiness to your cheeks.

RMK Translucent Cheeks & Eyes 02
I haven't tried this one yet, but I'll keep you posted. ;)

Esprique Precious Dress on Shiny Eyes C-1
I bought this E/S palette because of Fuz, this is one of her faves and now I know why! It's great! maybe even better than the consistency of Lunasol, the shadows are very easy to blend, and the liner is so soft it's almost idiot proof, I have to admit I still have to hone my eye lining skills, but the liner in this palette is so smooth, it was so easy to apply! I'm now lemming over the other shades. uh oh. (^_~)

Nail Envy: Katy Perry

Hi y'all! I caught a cold and i'm still recovering.. I just want to drop by my blog and let you all know i'm still alive and breathing beauty. ;) 

I was browsing through Katy Perry's twitpics when i saw a photo of her blinged out nails!

 I'm definitely doing that if i ever find nail rhinestones... or if i get lazy i'll just go the nail salon. hehehe. One commenter said Katy wears minxnails but i couldn't find a picture sample of her rhinestone encrusted nails. Popstars! I wish i was one. Talk about glam! :)

TGIF! Shu Uemura + Paul & Joe + YSL

Lurvey and I went out shopping @ Rustan's Makati yesterday and look what I got! 2 new lippies! I've been good today (hence, the mini-haul) because the BF was with me all throughout when i was shopping for new cosmetics. hehe. I only got the Shu Uemura Cleansing Oil which I need and the Paul & Joe Disney Ed. Blush in 02. Oh and the 2 new lippies I was talking about. Here they are...

I got the 150ml. Shu Uemura Skin Purifier Balancing Cleansing Oil Fresh (Php1,700), it suits combination to oily skin types, i was actually buying the brightening one which i ran out of but, i smelled this and it smells like cherry blossom so i got it instead. :) They say it helps to remove dead skin cells and tighten your pores too. :) I tried it last night and it works really well on me. Its a pleasure to massage on the face because it glides on the face smoothly because its oil and it smells nice. :) 

Here I am after cleansing. (please excuse my gazillion moles and blemishes, im working on banishing them - the blemishes i mean. hahaha) Makeup free! I feel refreshed! ^_^

Paul & Joe Disney Edition Face Color 02 (Php1,800) I could not resist any longer, i had to get it already! It gives out a nice rosy pink color. I can't wait to use it!

Paul & Joe Limited Edition Lipstick C in 063 - Reckless (Php1,450)
My very first RED lippie. Im happy that its very wearable, not loud at all! It fits my personality. Thank you SA Lailyn for helping me find the right red. :)

YSL Rouge Volupte 19 - Frivolous Pink (Php1,550)
A very Barbie-ish pink, gorgeous! The Rouge Volupte line is very creamy and soft, easy to wear. I find it a bit drying on my lips though, so i have to apply my Coffret D'or Lip Essence first, its a must! I got the last one, thanks SA Aaron! :)
Thats all folks! ;)

Cheap Thrills - Blotting Paper

Ok, you must be thinking this person has completely gone loca... a blog entry dedicated to blotting paper? C R A Z Y. hahaha! but my tiny Watson's haul made me happy, so i'm going to share it with you for blogging education purposes. lol.

I've run out of my trusty Clean & Clear Oil Control Film so i was on the hunt for something new, something Japanese made, because i like japanese quality on beauty products, they simply rule! I was thinking of asking a friend to buy me some Boscia Blotting Paper on Sephora but it would take too long to get to me because i live in the Philippines :( then I saw the Paul & Joe Blotting paper while browsing in, i researched and read that the P&J paper had powder, a big NO for me, i don't want to look like a geisha thank you very much. 

I'm also eyeing Kanebo blotting papers but i haven't had the chance to go to the store where they sell them and i don't want to use tissue to remove oil throughout the day anymore because it leaves tiny bits of paper which i hate because they're terrible to remove.

All that O.C. talk leads me to the Cheap Thrills i found at the local Watson's. I think they're all made in Japan and the packaging are very Manga-like i couldn't help myself, i bought them all! hahaha!

clockwise from left: Finess Shine-Free Pearlized Powder (it has fine specks of gold glitter on the paper which will transer to your face while you blot) , Finesse Green Tea Scent Oil Control Sheet (subtle green tea scent on green linen paper), Finess Lavender Scent Oil Control Sheet (subtle lavender scent on blue linen) and Glam Works Oil Control Film (a pink version of the clean & clear control films)

The Finess Blotting Papers retails for Php37 (Approx. USD.70) while the Glam Works Film retails for Php69 (Approx. USD1.50). Ya' see? I told you it was CHEAP. ^_^

TFS Nail Polish

It's always a love-hate relationship between me and the Face Shop Nail Polish, there are certain colors and consistency which i like very much and there are some which i just hate and they just sit at the back of my humble NP collection. This time i think i hit the LOVE button when i purchased these babies, The TFS Base Coat, Shimmering Top Coat (which is really nice when put on top of , Sheer Black polish with fine & chunky glitters and a pastel purple polish with fine & chunky glitters which is a current fave! :)

Everything is priced at Php185 (Approx. USD4), i also got a cute mini towel which can be used when cleaning my nails, nail stickers and a small NP pouch for free. Not bad eh? :)

Here is the pastel purple polish with fine & chunky glitters on my nails, so pretty. i love it! :)
I think I'm going to stock up on these because i like them very much,they are all of good quality and the price is very reasonable, i won't feel guilty if i feel like changing my nail polish every 5 days kekeke. :)
