Disclaimer: Some of the Etude House Products have been sitting on my vanity since even before my last[most previous] collective haul. i was merely waiting to complete the tangerine collection or at least have the cream choux especially in #2 [the only one of the 4 that i would actually use] but to this day, it's out of stock at my favorite mega mall branch. AND THEREFORE, these weren't purchased in one day, i.e. last april 7 pa nagbukas ang F21 sa makati, some of these are free give aways, thanks to Etude and Charmaine of kkochipida
as some of you might have seen in my twitter/twitpic i went to the first weekend opening of the forever21 branch in sm makati:
here are the items i got:
to this day i'm over the moon with jeans that are less than PhP600, P545 to be exact and cotton tees for PhPP183 in a comfortable mall in a boutique with some sort of a name LOL, well sikat naman ang F21 sa youtube eh, so in fairness it has a name and the couple of Koreans that own F21 are already listed in Forbes, so ahem ;-)
i was also there the day the new etude house branch in mega B opened. i was just a tad too early but i got a few pix.
first few hours were for the media then by passed 12, they opened the doors for the general public. this branch is a great deal bigger than their previous shop in mega A. are you curious what shop will replace the space left behind by Etude house??? :P
if you use your citrus rcbc master card you get a further 5% reduction in price. it's pretty hard to beat, ahem tfs and skin food!
if you spend a certain amount at Etude House they had a special promo where you get to spin this wheel:
you want quality products for a less expensive amount? try Korean products, bwahahaha eh ako na defensive. phhhffft.
stuff came in from Charmaine. Lioele, Tony Moly, Baviphat at 50% off, and loads of freebies from her.
a couple of items from The Face Shop. the sticker set came from Thor of Space Encounters
a more recent purchase, the Big shampoo was a gift from the jowa, while the american cream is just ♥♥♥ for me, this is the conditioner whose scent lasts on my hair even after the next shampooing.
first time ever for me to buy a high end blush this blush just suits my complexion well and does not oxidize on me. comparative review on this and my theBalm hot mama coming up, hopefully this week ☺♥
Aha! Rohto clear! this one was a present from my sister in law, theBenj's younger sister who visited from the states. omg, this thing is painful! but woah effective! Tao's Makeup or iamgrape1119 on YT did say it was painful as hell the first few times but it really is much better than just your normal visine or eyemo. this is from riteaid. thanks Carol ☺♥
and my kpop stuff. and again, i didn't buy all this shizz in one sitting. I got them them from different Kpop stores namely Space Encounters and Fangirl Asia [through hero-Tania]. the lucky days cd was a gift from a friend of mine, Dek. defensive much again? let's take that one step further, i've got a stable job and no kids, makeup and kpop are my only vices, araseo?
that's all for now folks, can't wait to review these items!
