Inglot Makeup Haul + JLO collection

Untitled

Hello.. Hello.. I took a couple of weeks off just to relax and get settled with my new job. So far everything is going pretty well and also, hubby and I went down to New York City for a week to spend some time with the in-laws and spent our 10th year wedding anniversary as well. It was short but definitely fun and of course a memorable one.

Now, every time I’m in Manhattan I always visit the Inglot store at Times Square because they’re customer service is just nice and I just like it there. We don’t have any Inglot retailers here in Albany, NY and as much as possible, I like to see their products up-close rather than buying them online.

Ulta vs Sephora (Birthday gifts)

Untitled_Fotor

Before my birthday month ends, I had to redeem my free gifts from Ulta Beauty and Sephora. So today, I want to share with you what I got from both beauty stores.

I received an email reminder from Ulta to redeem my free gift. In order for you to redeem your gift, you have to provide the coupon that was emailed to you. I almost lost this email so I asked if I could present my Ulta membership card or any membership information but they won’t honor it because they need to scan the coupon that was provided. Luckily, I found the email that was sent to me. Continue reading “Ulta vs Sephora (Birthday gifts)”

I got tempted..(a Beauty Haul)

FotorCreated

I tried so hard to be on a “No Buy” mode for the past two months and I was really proud that I’m able to stop myself from purchasing any makeup related stuff.

I admit, there were moments that I was about to give up and just say “what the heck” but no, I kept my promise and I did it. I originally planned of just doing a “Low-Buy” but instead, I went on a “No Buy” for the month of January and February.

When March 1st came, I couldn’t help but check out the usual makeup section at Marshalls, Nordstrom Rack and more.. and there!!! I did some damage.

Now, let me show you what I’ve collected for the past week! Continue reading “I got tempted..(a Beauty Haul)”

Black Friday Haul

It’s catching up time again and let me show you what I got during the Black Friday madness! Just so you know, I didn’t really join the stampede on Black Friday as I was out and about on Thanksgiving night. I noticed that there were more great stuff the day/night before Black Friday than the actual Black Friday itself.

Also, I didn’t purchase a lot as I had my eyes on a few specific ones that I wanted to have. Most items I purchased are those that I know I will use a ton.

I will share my thoughts on some that I’ve used, while I will be introducing those that I haven’t put to the test. Continue reading “Black Friday Haul”

New York City “mini-haul”…

Mini-Haul_Fotor

Just a few of weeks ago, I went to visit New York City just for a day to spend some “Me time”. I was actually planning on heading to the Inglot store but it was a bit too far from where I was ,so I guess that’s going to be my next assignment. 🙂

Anyway, I couldn’t resist but to check out Duane Reade (the most recognized drugstore chain in metropolitan New York). Duane Reade became a part of Walgreens family and they carry a lot of great drugstore beauty products that Walgreens Pharmacy itself do not sell.

They have a beauty section (LOOK boutique) that sells a lot of amazing drugstore brands that we do not have here in Albany, NY. Few of the brands they carry are the ones that I’ve laid my hands to.
