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 Β 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"

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 caseΒ 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!

    Hi sis is this direct shipping to philippines? How many days before you got your order???

  • Hi! Yup direct to the Philippines, i pick it up in the post office. usually about 2 weeks or so πŸ™‚

    • Jaja

      Sis do you think they will allow shipping obagi skin care treatment

      • I’m not so sure to be honest you can check with the seller I’m sure they have other alternative couriers if not πŸ™‚

        • Jaja

          Sis , when you choose direct ship to philippines do they tax you ba and do you have to pick up talaga doon sa post office? With make up items or any other items

          • No tax only storage fee-Php112. I always pick them up. I think I wrote about it before i’ll look it up

          • Oh no, I’m sorry, I haven’t. I forgot I was supposed to write about it lol

    Hi! What site did you buy these from? Thanks!

    • Hi! I forgot I didn’t insert a link in my post above. I purchased it at xtras.co.uk πŸ™‚

  • Crizelda Santiago

    Why do you have to pick it up in the post office? They can’t deliver door to door ba?

    • They used Royal mail which is a Postal shipping service, it will have to go through the post office…

      • Crizelda Santiago

        So how will you know if you have to pick it up in the Postal Service already? Plus do they indicate which postal service you will pick it up? And in your case is it near your place? I am planning to buy lots of W7 stuff from the site you mentioned, they are very cheap plus the free shipping in the Philippines is so enticing.

        • By postal service I meant services by the post office. Your local post office will give a notice. You son’t have to wait for it though. I just picked mine up from my local post office after asking them if I have a parcel. Though keep in mind that you will have to pay Php 112 per package.

  • Crizelda Santiago

    Is it still 112? Also the the Local post office would have to call me? Or paano ba? Sorry no idea on how to pick up parcels from post office, usually kasi door to door πŸ™‚

    • Yeah. 112, I just picked up something last week. As I mentioned, they’ll send a notice or you can go and check it yourself. Just take note of the tracking/reference number if available. I’m actually still writing a post about picking up stuff from the post office but I am sure there are some guides online, better check them out first or DM philpost on Twitter if you want to know more specific details…

    • To be clear, the notice they’ll give you is a piece of paper that basically tells you you have a package and some delivery info.

  • Crizelda Santiago

    I’ll wait for your post on that, but thank you for helping me out! πŸ™‚

    • No worries… update you after I’ve posted it.

  • Jfjsjs

    Hi sis have you tried rimmel powder, i find it greyish on my skin even if i have yellow undertone πŸ™

    • Oh, sorry. I haven’t tried any powder from Rimmel πŸ™‚
