November Madness (Haul)2:03:00 AM
I just got back from GM, spent the evening shopping, gossiping and *mostly* laughing like a maniac with #Undecided and another blogger fellow, Katherin :). I kinda feel like i'm rotating on beauty bloggers to go out with, after Oline last week and now Katherin hahahaha.. Who's up for next week? LOL. I feel like i need to introduce more and more beauty bloggers to #Undecided so eventually she'd feel like my spending is not that crazy (because there are worse ones out there muahahahahaha). How's my evil plan, you think that'll work?
In the meantime, please please please cover #Undecided's eyes because i'm about to reveal my November Madness...
|And that's not even all, there were a few little things that seems a bit out of the group so i decided to leave them out for future haul posts...|
I actually still have lots of previous months' hauls to cover, but i feel like i need to post this separately because... Well, first of all look at the amount of things i bought! And i bought it like, simultaneously! I was having another crazy phase *sigh, when do i never....* when i felt the urge to constantly buy cosmetics, i even *almost* stopped buying other things (or at least bought not too much :P) and almost solely dedicated November for my cosmetic madness. I don't know what's gotten into me *cries*, it's like i can't even control myself anymore #justifyingself #pretendtobeposessesed #anythingtoavoidbeingheldresponsible.
|First two : hauls from Beauty Bar 2010 and NYX Olshop|
|Stuffs from Beauty Bar came in a Etude House's bag because they are in the same town as mine and one of the owner sent them themselves to my office :) so no need to wrap!|
|Minnie in the Nails glitters|
|Minnie Touch Blusher|
|Look at the cover OMG*(%^#&*%&W@%$^ so CUTE!|
|I'm not really a Minnie Mouse fan but i cannot resist kawaii-ness in general so i obviously had to have this. I thought i would never have the heart to use this though *and disfigure the Minnie Mouse head*|
|Minnie Kissing Lips|
|Yea, cannot resist the lippie as well...|
|Haul from NYX Olshop, but they didn't arrive together, read on to know the story|
Now, NYX Olshop's a trusted seller and this is the first time i'm ordering from them. I think their sevice's okay, but i did encounter some error during my transaction with them. I am not out to say bad words about anyone, and i would definitely say i am quite satisfied with their services, still i feel like i have to be honest and warn you to check continuously when shopping from them.
First of all, i actually ordered a Rimmel's Kate Moss Glam Eyes Union Jack HD Eyeshadow in True Union Jack. This is how the eyeshadow i ordered looks like :
Then i also ordered e.l.f's Beach Beauty Day Palette (yes, still going strong with my palette madness *sigh*) but they were not ready yet, so i paid in full for the Union Jack (which was ready stock and on promotion IDR 68.000) to make sure they kept it for me while waiting for the e.l.f palette. When the palette was finally ready, i paid for the palette+shipping and they sent it my way. First problem :
|Let's ogle on the beauty of this palette first|
|All this for IDR 115.000 only. Die. I think i want everything that e.l.f can offer. Better still, if i can buy them when i'm holidaying in USA so i get to pay the real price hahahaha|
|Then not too long after, the second package arrived|
|I was pretty happy that i arrived swiftly, and they added a little sponge as bonus|
|But then i saw this. LOLOLOL. This is definitely not Union Jack! They sent me Heart Of Gold instead!|
Actually i only ordered Union Jack because they look the most like how real Union Jack is :p. I'm very partial to blue and grey eyeshadows so i have quite a lot of them and i don't really wear purplish hot pink all that much, so i was actually contemplating on getting Heart of Gold instead (because believe it or not, neutral colors like these were actually the ones that i am lacking of in my collection!) with all those beautiful shimmery neutral shades. But i was still shocked when they sent me the wrong color after not sending it at all! LOLOLOL (Btw, i have proofs if anyone thinks i'm making up stories. The PM from them all still stored in my inbox).
I don't know what'll happen if i protested, i guess they'd ask me to send the Heart of Gold back and send me Union Jack... I was just not willing to go through all the hassle, and i'd be pissed if i have to pay for shipping since it was not my mistake in the first place. And i can't imagine if they refuse to be held responsible and i might start a fight (LOL), i just couldn't be bothered. Especially because i ended up loving how Heart of Gold looks anyway. Still, that's pretty messed up :( and i encourage you to be very careful when ordering with them. I guess you can remind them over and over again about the stuffs you ordered and the shades you wanted? Thing is, they are not actually all that friendly via PM *LOL*. I kept on asking when the e.l.f palette's gonna be ready and i felt like i'm harassing them because they are so cryptic and stoic while answering. Lack of human touch, must i say? LOL. I admit i enjoy friendly sellers who makes me feel like i'm a very valued customer and all...
So, this is just a gentle reminder for NYX Olshop (i'm gonna tag them to this entry but i cannot make them read this, now can i? Haha) to be more careful with their customer's orders in the future. Oh, and being a little friendlier would be a nice touch :D! I wouldn't hesitate ordering more from them, they have nice selection of stuffs at a pretty low price.
|Next batch of stuffs. The Sogo shopping bag contained stuffs G helped me to order :P not really from Sogo at all!|
|Haul from my sis-in-law's OS : Maneki Neko|
|Liplicious Tasty Lip Color in Pommie Cider|
|Mentha Lip Tint in Copper Shimmer|
|Liplicious Summer Vanillas Berry Tasty Lip Color Gloss|
|Generous CL even added a tiny little manekineko phone charm as a bonus!|
|Stuffs G helped me buy...|
|This is from Kutekmurah.net, an OS that G frequented (i assure you she's nutter than me, she bought like... 20 BBW at a time, and continuously so!). They were having a huge sale, BBW stuffs for IDR 55.000 each (minimum purchase of 8 items), i was in Bali at the time and G kept on poisoning me with lists and pictures, and i cracked *___*|
|Rome Honeysuckle Amore|
|Aruba Coconut. Huhuhuhu i'm still mourning my Bali Mango :(... and no, i'm not willing to buy at a full price!!! (in case there's a seller reading this and contemplating offering me to buy from them hahahaha)|
|And then G showed me these cute long glosses zzzzz!!! DAMN YOU G!!!! Again, i am very very weak with cute packaging and names, so i decided i needed one Jelly Pops (chose the Blueberry one...) in my life!!!|
Before that, i had this crazy urges to buy cosmetics while my PO orders haven't arrived, and i suddenly missed Oriflame and their glossy catalogs. Since G has both Oriflame AND Sophie Martin "ladies" in her office (her colleague lah :p), she helped me borrowed the catalogs and of corz....
|Oriflame Haul. Actually what i really wanted to order was the crayon lippie ever since i saw a blogger posted about it in IBB, you know it's one of my obsessions right now... I feel like i need to have one from every brand *LOL*|
|Got this lippie just because i was intrigued by its size, it was a mini lipstick you see... And only around IDR 15.000 after discount...|
|Pure Color Lipstick in Black Cherry (yes, still obsessing over dark lippies...)|
|The roots of all problems *___*. I actually wanted this in another color (a dark one, teehee, you guessed it!) but it was OOS, i really wanted one so i freaked and ordered in any other color available -____-|
|Unfortunately (or fortunately, depends on which side you see it) the palette was no longer available (it was limited edition or something), but i ended up buying other stuffs. Like this lippie|
|Kluge Lipstick. I am familiar with this line, i have their powder and blush on (which surprisingly's pretty good and pigmented), and am curious enough to try the lippie (i saw it in Glory's blog as well, the packaging is... well, right up my alley)|
|Got it in Sister Pink. Didn't expect it to be frosty, but i found out you can tone down frostiness by adding gloss on top of them. Am not a fan of frost finish. It was so so cheap though (can't remember how much, IDR 20.000 something)|
|Koshize Nutrilips lipstick, i guess because it was on sale hahahaha|
|I think they do not have names for their shades *they should, every brands should*, it's KNL6|
|The reason why i hunted for Sophie Martin seller (in case you don't know, they sell their stuffs MLM style like Oriflame/Avon, so it's not readily available in stores of malls)|
|Keiko Eau de Parfume. I only realized latter that it was actually a collaboration with a local girlband (EEEEEEEEEEEEEEWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW), but i'm gonna overlook it. It's cute and it smells okay, plus it was only IDR 89.900|
|It looks a little cheaper than i hoped, you know the material and coloring? But it IS cheap, and it's still cute so i'm pretty happy with this|
|Next up : Elianto Haul. I already mentioned here that i bought some stuffs before, and here they are (i bought some more later on. Another facial masks set and shower gel sets. But then the BA kinda forgot to put in the bonus Christmas pouch and i protested in FB but they didn't respond. ZZZZ. A bit disappointed because i wanted to use the pouch to wrap gifts!)|
|Last items!!! From Papuros USA|
|e.l.f Baked Blush in Peachy Cheeky (IDR 40.000) coz i do not own any baked blush (or baked anything, for the matter) and want to try at least one :p|
|All of the colors looks pretty *i googled the swatches for hours* and at that price i think i will collect every color eventually, but this time i bought them in Tiki Torches|
|and Pink Umbrellas|
And we're finally done! PHEWWW!!!! There were just a few other things that i bought here and there throughout November (really only a few, i promise!!!) that i haven't cover here or in this entry-it'll show up sometime in the future in my weekly hauls *need to restart it again soon* ! Leaving you with a picture of me with #Undecided and Kat2 from earlier tonite :D. Only bought a New Look tee tonite (Kat2 and #Undecided got one each as well), i'm being good, am i not?
