MAKE UP HAUL Part 2 (NYC, Rimmel and W7 Cosmetics)

Maybe I should do a Make up Monday series since all I do nowadays is buy and buy more make up.

Anyway, here is part 2 of my June make up haul. This one is from the UK/Sweden. I actually ordered all of these items from one site (they also have an ebay store) but I was informed that they have  a warehouse in Sweden too that’s why I received 2 parcels, one from the UK and the other from, of course, Sweden. (And since it was 2 parcels I needed to pay Php 200 to the post office in total! Huhu)

EDIT: I didn’t realize that I didn’t include the website so click that hyperlink above or click here. I highly recommend this site as I never had any problems with them so far.

Rimmel Provocalips “Little Minx”

RIMMEL PROVOCALIPS IN LITTLE MINX. This is surprisingly the best one for me. I have really dry lips and most of the time I have to reapply my lipstick since they end up flaking or crusting idk how to explain it. But this, I don’t have much problem with. It stays on your lips for hours and it still looks good. It’s transfer proof, kiss proof (idk about french kissing but I kissed my hands to test it out lol) and very long lasting. I’m planning to buy another shade (or 2 or 3 or i might just get them all) since this is really great for traveling.


NYC LIQUID LIP STAIN IN PERPETUALLY MAUVE. This one is nice too but I get a very interesting feeling on my lips while applying this. The feeling is not uncomfortable but it’s not pleasant too. Anyway, I realized I should have chosen another shade since this is one is really close to the provocalips one. Also, this would be a good product to use if you want to try the korean gradient lips or the just-sucked-on-a- lollipop lips.

W7 Eyeshadow palette “IN THE MOOD”. I’ve seen this brand in Amazon and I’ve noticed that some of their products closely resembles those of other more expensive or more popular products but selling for a much cheaper price of course. This one in particular is said to be a “dupe” for Urban Decay’s Naked Basics. They also have dupes for Naked 1, 2 and 3. I wanted to purchase those 3 bigger palettes but I wanted to try this one first to have a feel of their shadows. I can’t compare it to the Naked basics since I don’t have it but these shadows are good. I think they’re worth a try. And I love the packaging. It comes in a metal case and it’s compact which makes it travel friendly in my opinion.

And because this shopping experience from the website left me really happy, I ordered a few more cosmetics yesterday. This is addicting.

Oh and did I mention shipping was free?? Yes!!! Free shipping to the Philippines from the UK!

Til next time!
