Assalamualaikum pretty ladies!
I went and had a holiday trip to KK a few weeks back, on the first day of Raya if I want to be more precise, we went there for 9 days just to get away from the Raya Aidilfitri celebration. I know it's weird but it is kinda refreshing tho not celebrating Raya and just have a relaxing shopping holiday. At first, the plan was to go to KL and Singapore, but due to some complications, we went to KK instead.
I spent a lot on shopping for makeups and apparels, I'm not posting my haul on the apparels I bought cuz let's face it, I'm too lazy to post about fashion, lol! So anyways, I went to Sephora, Bath & Body Works and Daiso for this haul.
Don't get me started on Daiso, I am pretty much in love with Daiso ever since I step foot into it, I bought a lot of stuffs there and am only posting the beauty-related stuff that I bought, I went there almost everyday of my trip!
Daiso Focus Gel Eyeliner in Lame Black- I think this is the only makeup item I bought for this haul, I'm still doing trials on this product so keep a lookout on the review.
Daiso Cleansing Water - I haven't try out that much micellar water yet, due to the lack of resources, why Brunei, why. However, I'm just going to give this a mini review since I know I won't be able to round up an in-depth review of some of the products that I hauled. So, I think you can pass cleansing water, you won't be missing out on anything, it's not that impressive, it does remove 70% of your makeup but it doesn't effectively remove waterproof mascaras. Also, I expect cleansing water to have no alcohol ingredient whatsoever, but this does and somehow it broke me out, ggrr. So now am using this to remove all my hand swatches and makeup residues from my hands whenever I apply makeup.
Daiso Detergent for Puff and Sponge - Nisa introduced me to this detergent and I'm glad that I bought this and I'm disappointed in myself of not buying a few more of this, cuz this is such an awesome brush and sponge cleaner, I usually clean my brushes with shampoos but I always never seem to be able to remove the brown stains by foundations from the brush and when I used this, AWESOME! I'd definitely will ask my friend to buy this for me!
Daiso Hand Cream in Rose - I love rose scents and I forgot to bring my hand cream along, so this somehow is a nice and cheap thing to try, I think it's more moisturizing than my GVC hand cream! Also, it smells AWESOME!
Daiso Fragrance Body Mist with Hyaluronic Acid in Peach - This is a repurchase for me, I really love this scent for a little pick-me-up, I didn't just repurchase 1 bottle, I went ahead and bought 4 bottles, that's how much in love I am with this body mist!
Daiso Silicone Pot Mat - Nisa, again, recommended me to buy this piece of silicone mat found in the kitchen section of Daiso. I loved it, it really helps to clean the brush along with the detergent, it's a perfect combination!
I was a bit overwhelmed by the Bath & Body Works store, I really didn't know what to choose and what to buy, so I decided that I'll just go on ahead and try out their anti-bacterial hand gels in Fresh Lavender, Paris Amour and Lush Bamboo Waterfall, they smell amazing from the testers that they have, I haven't opened them up because I'm trying to finish up my current hand gel from Simphor Pharma Skincare, which is a local skincare brand, if that's appropriate because so far I only see them selling the hand gels, but hopefully they'll branch out to other skincare items, I am all about supporting local brands.
I went to Sephora as well, my god, if only I don't have a time limit to shopping, I'd definitely indulge myself to a little one-on-one with every brand booth they have. LOL. But anyways, I came with a wishlist. I bought some stuffs on my wishlist and some are just on impulse.
Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Foundation Gel in Dark Beige - I bought this at a Watson, I think, in Suria shopping complex, I really love this! So lightweight, review coming up soon.
Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay in Place Makeup Foundation in 2W2 Rattan - This is my first Estee Lauder product, it's not the most expensive makeup I've ever bought, its basically RM153 or BND55 (currency rate I used is RM2.75) I'm still on the fence whether I really like this foundation or is it just a so-so but however review will come up soon.
Sephora Teint Infusion Foundation in 25 Beige - Bought another foundation to review, I have the other foundation, the Brightening and Hydrating teint, I wasn't disappointed with it so I decided to just go on ahead with the purchase.
Tarte How Sweet It is Deluxe Lip and Cheek Set - I am in love with Tarte as a brand, although I don't have a lot of products from them but I really do adore their packaging, I still however find their items to be a little expensive, I love their blushes but I just can't get myself around to buy with a BND40-something a pop, so I decided to buy the sample set, only because I really want a Tarte blush. Review will come soon!
Stila Smudge Pot in Black - This is an impulse purchase as I really didn't imagine myself buying this, but I was desperate to find a nice and exceptional gel eyeliners, hence the impulse purchase, I did however compare this with one of the MUFE gel eyeliners and decided that Stila's smudge pot is more pigmented than MUFE's
NYX Tinted Brow Mascara in Espresso - I am always on a lookout for brow products and I think brow mascaras are easier to use for barely there makeups or on days which you don't want to wear makeup that much but still want to make an effort. I do wanna try lighter colors of this in hopes that it'll be able lighten my brows a little and fill them up with lighter brow products.
Soap and Glory Flake Away Body Scrub - Everybody always raves about Soap and Glory, I wasn't really interested in this brand but Nisa and Angela actually mentioned about how they really like this product, I saw this near the cashier, a nice deluxe sample and I was like, it won't hurt to try a sample size but usually I liked to purchase a big tub because I run out of body scrubs so easily, but review will come soon InshaAllah.
So that's it for my haul, which product do you want me to review first? :)
