Collective Haul



This post actually started as a mini haul, and I don't really know what happened along the way but after various days running around errands and shopping for a friend's birthday, I ended up with all of this:

 

|1| Essence Nail Polish in Let's Get Lost. As much as I tried to, the true color of this polish just won't photograph! In real life it's like an electric blue, and once it's on your nails it looks different depending of how much light there is and if it's artificial or not.
|2| MAC Studio Finish Concealer in NW20. This is the reason I even went shopping in the first place, and it was supposedly the only thing I was going to buy. I can't live without a thick concealer, and this has had great reviews, so I'm excited to try it!
|3| Essence Multi Action Waterproof  Mascara. I'm always on the hunt for a mascara that doesn't smudge (still no luck) and picked this on a whim.
|4| Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Eyeliner in Black. Along with my never-ending quest of mascara that doesn't smudge, I'm also always looking for black eyeliner that I can put on my waterline and won't make me look like a panda. Let's hope this one's a winner!Casa&Ideas Eyelash Curler and Sharpener. Casa&Ideas always has cute tools, and these are no exception! Plus, they were on sale :P
|5 & 6| Rimmel Apocalips in Big Bang and Nova. These just arrived from trusty old ASOS (I'm not sure, but I don't think I've ever seen a place where they sell Rimmel here in Chile), and I've heard such great reviews that I can't wait to wear them.
|7| Casa&Ideas Eyelash Curler and Sharpener. Casa&Ideas always has cute tools, and these are no exception! Plus, they were on sale :P


|8| Nivea Mattifying Toner. I ran out of most of my skincare stuff, so I had to go and buy most of it back. My old toner wasn't really working for me, so after glancing around the (almost nonexistent) variety of toners that my local supermarket had, I went for the only one that I hadn't tried!
|9| Neutrogena Oil Free Clear Wash Exfoliant. I had been eying this one for quite a while, but I wanted to finish up my Avon exfoliant first (empties post coming soon!). I have the cleanser version and I love it!
|10| Neutrogena Deep Clean Cleanser. I actually didn't need a cleanser, but when I saw this was a lotion I bought it anyway. I don't have hot water on my sink, so those cleansers that you need to wash off don't work for me when it's nighttime and I don't take a shower.

|11| Slippers. I found these in Lider (the Chilean equivalent of Walmart). They just looked so cute and cozy that I had to buy them! I didn't think they would be very warm, but I was pleasantly surprised by how well-heated they keep your feet.
|12| TodoModa Ring. I went in to find a present for a friend and ended up buying some stuff for me as well, oops! It was on sale as well.
|13| TodoModa Bracelet. I'm in love with studs at the moment! I had been looking for a bracelet like this and finally found it. And at a really cheap price too!
|14| Foster Leggings. I have another pair of these in a darker wash and I live in them. Paris (a department store here in Chile) had a 40% off coupon if you were fans of them on Facebook, so I went directly to pick up another pair of these.
|15| Paris Je t'aime Tote Bag. It was near the checkout at Paris (the store) and I couldn't resist!




|16| Papelería Pencil Case. It's got the map of Paris over it! I had to buy it even though it was a bit expensive, and justified it by saying that it was because "I deserved it".
|17| Essence Makeup Bag. It had the Eiffel Tower. Enough said.

And that's it! Now I'm off to rehearse my monologue for my test tomorrow. What have you bought recently?

*****

Belleza

|1| Esmalte Essence en Let's Get Lost. Por más que traté, el color verdadero de este esmalte no se fotografía. En la vida real es como un azul eléctrico, y una vez que está en tus uñas se ve de diferentes colores dependiendo de cuanta luz hay y de si es artificial o no.  
|2| MAC Studio Finish Concealer en NW20. Ésta fue la razón por la que fuí de compras para empezar, y supuestamente fue lo único que iba a comprar. No puedo vivir sin un buen corrector, y este tenía muy buenas recomendaciones, así que quiero probarlo!
|3| Essence Multi Action Waterproof  Mascara. Siempre ando buscando una mascara nueva que no se corra (todavía no encuentro una) y me compré esta para probar.
|4| Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Eyeliner en Black. Además de mi búsqueda sin frutos de una mascara que no se corra, también siempre ando buscando un delineador negro para usar en mi waterline que no he de ojos de panda. Espero que éste sea por fin lo que he estado buscando!
|5 & 6| Rimmel Apocalips in Big Bang and Nova. Éstos acaban de llegar por correo de ASOS (no estoy segura, pero creo que nunca he visto que vendan la marca Rimmel acá en Chile), y he escuchado tan buenas opiniones que no puedo esperar para usarlos.
|7| Rizador de Pestañas y Saca Puntas de Casa&Ideas. Casa&Ideas siempre tiene herramientas de belleza muy lindas, y estas no son excepción! Además estaban en oferta, jiji.

Cuidado de la Piel

|8| Tónico Matizante Nivea. Se me terminaron varias cosas, así que tuve que ir a comprar respuestos. El último tónico que estaba usando no estaba funcionando, asi que después de mirar dentro de la variedad no existente de tónicos en mi supermercado, decidí comprar el único que no había probado. 
|9| Exfoliante Facial Neutrogena. Hace tiempo que quería comprar este, pero quería terminar el exfoliante Avon que tenía.
|10| Loción Desmaquillante Limpieza Profunda de Neutrogena. En realidad no necesitaba un limpiador, pero ví que esta era una crema lo compré igual. No tengo agua caliente en mi lavamanos, así que esos limpiadores que se tienen que enjuagar no me sirven cuando solo me quiero lavar la cara sin tener que meterme a la ducha. 

Moda

|11| Pantuflas. Encontré estas en Lider (el equivalente chileno de Walmart). Se veían tan tiernas y calentitas que tuve que comprarlas! No pensaba que iban a ser muy calientes, pero me sorprendieron con lo bien que conservan el calor. 
|12| Anillo de TodoModa. Fuí a TodoModa a encontrarle un regalo a una amiga de cumpleaños y terminé comprándome yo un par de cosas también, oops! Y estaba en oferta.
|13| Pulsera de TodoModa. Amo las tachas! Hace tiempo que estaba buscando una pulsera así, y por fin la encontré. Y estaba súper barata también!
|14| Leggings Foster. Tengo otro par de éstos en un color más oscuros, y vivo en ellos. Paris (una tienda departamental acá en Chile) tenía un cupón de 40% de descuento si eras fan de ellos en Facebook, así que fuí directamente a buscar otro par de estos. 
|15| Bolso Paris Je t'aime. Estaba al lado de la caja en Paris (la tienda) y estaba tan barato que no me pude resistir!

Misc

|16| Estuche de Papelería. Tiene el mapa de Paris! Necesitaba un estuche nuevo, y aunque estaba un poco caro, lo justifiqué diciendo que "me lo merecía".
|17| Estuche para Maquillaje de Essence. Tiene la Torre Eiffel. No necesita explicación. 

Y eso sería todo! ¿Qué han comprado últimamente?
