Yesterday....(Haul & FOTD)

Here's my super duper fast girly look that I rushed. This is what I normally do when I'm in a rush and yes, I love to wear lashes instead of applying mascara and after putting on lashes 100x I'm fairly quick at it now.=D lol I didn't bother with eyeliner or any mascara for the bottom lash lines. I also struggled big time with my eyeliner since I couldn't find fluidline then and I had to use this dry loreal hip cream eyeliner...so gross! =(

Excuse my dry hair! =( I don't condition enough. I also took these pictures without flash.


What I Used:
FACE
St.Ives Collagen Elastin Facial Moisturizer
Monistat Chafing Gel (Face Primer)
MakeUp ForEver HD Foundation 153 (Loving this foundation although it's a tad too yellow but I can work with it!)
So I forgot the powder today!
Mac Select Coverup Concealer - NW 35 & MUFE #10 Full Cover Concealer
Mac Espresso Eyeshadow (Eyebrows)
EYES
Freshlook ColorBlend Contacts in Grey
LOreal Hip Cream Eyeliner - Black (Dries so quickly!)
Ardell Demi Wispies

CHEEK
Mac Refined Golden Bronzer (Contour)
Mac Optimistic Orange Cremeblend Blush (Love it!)
Mac Cheeky Bronze MSF (My favourite MSF now!)

LIPS
Mac Sublime Culture Lipliner
Mac Brave Lipstick (I've been using this quite alot!)

=============================
Let's begin with the haul....

Recently the BEBE Sports store was rebranded and now it's called PH8. I bought this bag a month ago and it was discounted by 40% and I got it around $60ish Cdn. I love big gym type bags since I can carry so many things in it. It's great for school. I can throw in my netbook and notes...etc.

It's a golden khaki shade and I love the silky shine of it.

I love the colour inside and it has many pockets too!

=============================

I purchased this mini gym duffel bag from Lululemon on final sale for $44.00 Cdn.

=============================
I got these pretty bangles and light beige hat from H&M.

$9.95 Cdn

$7.95 Cdn

=============================


These hair products were purchased from the salon at Eaton Centre called Nino D'Arena.

Bed Head Tigi Dumb Blonde Reconstructor : $22.85, 50% off = $11.42
Bed Head Dumb Blonde Shampoo : $16.95, 20% off = $13.56
=============================

I needed Mac Wipes badly since I was ALL OUT!
I also wanted to try out Mac's liquid liner.

=============================


I normally don't post clothing hauls but I think I'll start posting these from time to time.

I bought 3 things from Garage Clothing.

*Basic Super Skinny Jeans $29.90 Cdn (So Comfortable!)
*Black Tights $11.90 Cdn
*V Neck Sweater $9.00 Cdn

I also used my SPC discount card to get additional 10% off. =) YAY!
=============================

A friend of mines went to Vietnam and she got me a pack of Model 21 lashes. I actually like this brand since the lash band is soft and easy to apply. It's dirt cheap at Vietnam. =) You can buy the same ones from Ebay for cheap as well and most sellers include free shipping. The local asian stores sells these for more though...so I guess we're better off with Ebay shopping. =D


=============================

I got this in the mail today!
Mac's Spring Forecast Collection
(Mailers)

It's a massive new collection coming out this week. I've already seen the products on Temptalia and feel so-so towards it and not too crazy for it. I'm actually liking the peachy-coral nailpolish from this collection.

Also, a reminder to check out Sally Beauty Supply Store's February discounts. (CDN)
That's all for now. =)

Halifax said...

The blushes looked awesome on you.

I have the same lash set from that brand, good to know they are good :-) I checked Sally but didn't see any good deals. I was hoping for China Glaze sale or something lol

Nice shopping trip...

What are you talkin' about, girl??
Your hair is so pretty! I'm loving the waves.

Hahahah, your post makes me laugh...I have the same "DUMB BLONDE" shampoo. My bf always makes fun of it. But it works pretty decent. It just makes my hair too oily if I use it in the summer, but other than that it's sufficient. :)

Chibu74 - You definitely should!

Halifax - Thanks! I didn't see anything at Sallys either except I was at the store last week and went back to the clearance section they had some chinaglaze nailpolishes on sale so I bought 2. It was buy 1 get 1 free as long as its marked with a red tag. It was actually $2.00 total for 2.

Addicted2Fashn - Ok so my hair went through some trauma recently. I was trying to go more brown than more red and so I used this colour box which had the colour "light ash brown" and I used it on my roots and it really went quite dark and I didn't like it at all. So then I went back to the salon and asked for some blonde highlights again...it's a mix of medium-dark blonde and golden blonde and they applied it very thinly. So I guess if you go to the salon ask for... an ash brown base and thin blonde golden highlights. Btw in flash pictures...my hair still has the red base in it.

Dhalia - Thanks! I'll definitely check out the free give away.=)

glitteryeyesxx - Aww Thanks! ye...the dumb blonde is funny...I always think of myself as a dumb blonde stuck in a brown body! lol

Honey - Thanks hun! My favourite red is Ruby Woo Mac lipstick. I find it to be a bit bold and retro and I actually like it like that. You can also try out Diva Mac lipstick if you have a darker skintone like mines. It's more toned down but still bold. Alot of people like Russian Red too...so check that one out. Always swatch at the store and try the tester out and if you can...try it on your lips.=)

MEVISH - Thanks hun!! =D I wore the bangles last night. =D

Hi Xina!!

I just wanted to know if you have any products on your wish list from the spring color forecast by MAC so far, since you have about the same complexion as me. I just want lots of things but am undecided if the pink and purple blushes will look good in my skin tone.. I wish you a good day Jenny

Zerin said...

Jennylevi - I truly don't have a wishlist for that collection right now. It's going to come to the stores on Feb 11 or something....so I'll definitely check it out then. I'm kinda wanted the peachy coral nailpolish and that neutral beige one. I don't really know about the lipsticks. It sux that they didnt release any satin/matte colours in this collection. I think 1-2 lustres will be pretty like maybe the coral lipsticks. Electric Fuschia lipgloss seems pretty cool but I might have a similar shade...it definitely borders a dazzleglass...so look into that one. Pink or purple blushes should look fine on our kind of skintones. I'll let you know more when I get to see the actual collection itself.

Honey said...

thanx zerin.i will check em out :)

jennylevi said...

Thanks Xina!!!
