 Smashbox, Lorac, Real Techniques from Beauty.com/Drugstore.com
Hi guys! I hope you all had a safe weekend. The weather has not been great the past few days because of a major typhoon. In fact, classes and some offices has been cancelled here in Iloilo City last Friday. I did have a balanced weekend, going out for dinner and drinks (with lots of happy conversations) with friends Friday and Sunday nights. Saturday night was spent cooped up at home watching lots of TV series. Thankfully, the weather now is OK - a bit gloomy but the rain has stopped and the flood now gone.

I have for you today items I got from Beauty.com and Drugstore.com. You can order from both sites under one cart, with US shipping free for purchases $35 and above. These are products that I have been wanting to try for the longest time:

First Impressions: I got these beauties last week and have used them fairly but still not enough for a full review. Overall, I'm quite satisfied with everything I got. The brushes are what I expected them to be: soft and functional for everyday use. I used the Lorac palette for a night out and so far so good. The Smashbox Kit is my favorite out of the three in this beauty haul. The BB cream and powder perform exceptionally well in controlling my oiliness. Full reviews will be up in the coming week or so. Stay safe everyone.

*In case you are all wondering how I got these, I ordered them through a group buy. A bunch of us pitch in for an air cargo through LBC (this includes sales tax, international shipping fee, and local shipping from Manila to Iloilo City). I think this cheaper than buying from resellers here in the Philippines which pad their prices, sometimes twice the item's value.
