(1) Mia Maison Green Tea aromatherapy oil
I’ve been meaning to purchase something from Mia Maison for so long, but I hesitate every time since their stuff are so expensive. They were on sale yesterday, though, so I went ahead and chose a scent among their wide collection of aromatherapy oils.
The prices vary according to the scents. Green Tea is one of their bestsellers, and its regular price is P392.
I got this bottle for P350 because of the sale. It still burned a hole on my wallet, but I don’t regret ever buying it because now my room smells great (not that it didn’t prior to my little relaxation spree haha).
Mia Maison has branches in Trinoma, Greenbelt 5, Gateway, Alabang town center, Market! Market! and SM North Edsa Annex.
(2) Misa Nail Polish
Remember my post on Misa nail polish? Well, guess who wasn’t able to resist online shopping? ME!! *waves* I know I said I didn’t like buying stuff online, but I gave it a shot anyway since I really wanted to get my hands on a couple of Misa bottles and I didn’t know where else to get them. I received my order from Beauty Blends a few days after my order was finalized.
L-R: Femme Fatale (fiery red), Stiletto (maroon), Touch the Rainbow (silver matte), Our Song (baby pink), Passion 4 Fashion (dark brown) and Indian Tan (orange-tan)
These babies will soon grace my nails. Watch out, world!
Misa can be purchased from Beauty Blends.
(3) e.l.f. prodcuts
I’m due to change my make up tools and products, my face brush and blush, specifically. I was about to head to Beauty Bar (where I usually get my loot), when I chanced upon e.l.f. in First Aid, Greenbelt 3. e.l.f. stands for “eyes lips face”.
I never knew their products are priced so cheap! The face brush costs P129.75, and the blush (I got Tickled Pink) costs P249.75.
I was determined to find out why my new purchases are way cheaper than beauty products from Beauty Bar and Body Shop, for instance.
And I saw this on e.l.f. Philippines’ official website: “We at e.l.f. believe that innovative technology, quality ingredients and superb delivery systems should not be limited to prestige retailers. Every woman should have the opportunity to participate in innovation, without sacrificing her budget.”
Even the official US site shows that one can purchase beauty stuff for a dollar. Now that’s a good deal.
(4) Etude House Nail Polish
I instantly gravitated towards these cutesy nail colors upon entering Etude House. I learned about the brand through Polish Police.
I am still lusting over Etude House’s mattes, but the branch I visited didn’t carry them. I guess these creme pastels will have to do for now.
PK011 and OR205 are at P48 and P98, respectively.
Etude House is located at Market! Market! and at SM malls.
(5) Victoria’s Secret Beauty Rush Body Mist in Plumdrop
I bought this from a friend quite a while back, but I only started using it this week. Plumdrop is a nice, powdery scent. I am obsessed with it.
The bottle is a little too big to carry in my purse, so I indulge in about five sprays before leaving the house. Lasts a couple of hours. :)
