It has been a long time since the last haul. Haul is never truly amazing, it is a natural soothing from the moment the item is within your radar to the moment you paid with your credit card and it is either shipping to you or in your hand. For me, I had not splash for a pretty long time as I am running low on cash, eagerly looking for the job as well as hitting the piggy bank to support this blog. If you hear my inner voice and opt to stand by my side, do find some time to share my blog, share my post and follow me!
I am not exactly sure what spiked my sudden need to retail therapy but I did make myself stop by Sogo - Sofina counter to get the Primavista Primer as well as Sofina Beaute Emulsion sunscreen. They are doing a 10%off on sunscreen purchase after purchasing the Primavista range. I had always been a follower in their sunscreen and realising my stock is running low so I have taken this excuse for the opportunity to stop by Sogo. I have heard of the primer is good to last for over10hours. Once tested on the primer, I will do a review here.
Last week was the 20% off Sephora VIB sale, followed by 10% off for Sephora Beauty Insider. Today is the last day so do check it out. It takes me a long time as it often cost a lot more if you need to get the product delievered to Hong Kong. I have tried finding deals from forum but this time I decided to try Shop and Box, you still need to pay a premium for service including DHL delivery. I was able to get my requested product within a week, full stop. The last time I was waiting over 2 months........so there is where the money goes.
Marc Jacobs Beauty is always something I see often on Instagrams but cannot get my hands on. It is only on sale via Sephora and there is no such option in Hong Kong. I do always like to get the eye shadow palette, Marc Jacobs Beauty Style Eye-Con - Lolita shade, but I do have way too much in my drawers plus the consideration on the weigh and price, I hold. I only choose to get this New Nude Sheer Lip Gel in Eat Cake and this strongly recommendedTwinkle Pop Eye Stick by boxer AnneM at Shop and Box. This two item should settle my urge to need Marc Jacobs product for now. I did used the Lip Gel and it is super good. The shade is more orange/plum, absolute good for summer, it is super nourishing to a point mild staying power.
The Stila Nouveau Natural Eye Shadow Palette is a sudden purchase. I always mixed it up with the Eyes are the Windows range for some reasons. By doing a little bit research I found the Nouveau one is limited edition at Sephora only......so thats why is on my list. It is now sold out and is available at Stila website or Mecca in Australia. Oh another reasons is also because it got the all time favourite, kitten shade, which I always wanna own!
Last is more a lifestyle product, this is Japanese, instant hair removal cream for sensitive skin. I wanted to try it for travel purpose, it is always a good idea to have something prepared for little incidents for the hand, arm, leg or underarm, right? It is a mild solution with lavender fragrance. I do like its design etc but it probably take a long waiting time for me in order for it to work before I go into the shower. It is now on sale at Sasa for HKD48
