November 2013 Collective Haul

Once again, this is a really late update about the items that I got for myself the past month. Most of the items that you will see in this entry have already been used and I didn’t include all of them, actually because.. well, I don’t have the original packaging anymore. I was actually thinking of combining my November & December haul posts but that’s just too tedious.

Anyway, here are the items I got the past month, along with a few of my thoughts on some of them (they’re not in order by the way. I tried but they’re just not, lol):


ZA Perfect Solution Toner, Moisturizer & Collagen Cream
All from Sample Room

These are the products that I’ve been using lately and I’ve been loving it so much. I discussed it actually in my November Favorites and I included the facial cleanser (which I got from my November BDJ Box) and the moisturizer in that post.


MAKE UP: Ellana Minerals Let’s Make It Last Makeup Primer (PhP 450), Lip & Cheek Tint in ‘Amethyst’ (PhP 220), Loose Mineral Powder Foundation in ‘Almond Latte’ (PhP 460)
BRUSHES: Flat Angled Kabuki Brush (PhP 350), Dual-ended Slanted Liner/Eyeshadow Brush (PhP 350), Dual-ended Eyeshadow/Concealer (PhP 350)
OTHERS: Makeup Pouch, Ellana Minerals Cucumber Melon Brush Makeup Brush Cleaner(PhP 400)
All from Ellana Minerals

Okay, so I’m not so sure about the dual-ended brushes. I’m not sure of that’s their real name/label or whatever. I just labeled them according to how I would use them. Anyway, I got them from the Ellana Minerals Event and I’ve been loving all of them so far.


The Cream Factory Bath Cream in ‘Goats Milk & Acai Berry’ (Trio PhP 799) & Saforelle Gentle Cleansing Care (PhP 159.75 – Larger Bottle)

I’ve mentioned how I loved The Cream Factory Bath Cream in ‘Goats Milk & Honey’, I can’t remember how much I’ve raved about it. So when I got another bottle in a different scent, I got really excited, I didn’t wait to empty my Goats Milk & Honey, I just use both alternately. But now, seeing that I have three bottles in total, (one from my December Glamourbox) I now have no idea how I’m going to use all of them, lol. Oh and Saforelle! That intimate wash is a Godsend! Seriously! You can use it everyday, it’s so gentle you can even use it on other parts of your body. Also, it has burdock root so it can relieve itchiness. Just a random fact


Virginia Olsen Pure Organics Lip Cremes in ‘Crimson Geek’ and ‘Sweet Seduction’ (PhP 399/each)
All from Virginia Olsen

I have been loving these two babies so far. I’ll give you my thoughts about them REAL SOON! Stay tuned for a review!


Smashbox Masterclass Palette & Clinique Chubby Stick Intense in ‘Mightiest Maraschino’

I love these two products. The Smashbox Master Class palette is just amazing! It’s just like Lorac Pro minus the fall outs, so it’s like 2x better! I’ll do a review about this probably early next year. I just don’t know how since it contains a ton of eyeshadows and a lot of blushes and you know how I review palettes. I like to be detailed so I might divide it in to two parts. What do you think? The Clinique lippie, however, is just beautiful. It’s the perfect red lippie but it’s a lot easier to apply!


Majolica Majorca Brow & Lash Colorist, ZA Perfect Fit Concealer, Essence Get Big Lashes Mascara,
Kate Rimmel Lipstick in ‘#17’ & MAC Retro Matte Lipstick in ‘Flat Out Fabulous’

I’ve included most if not all of these in my November Faves, so if you want you can check that out to know more about my thoughts. (Click here to watch my November Faves!).


LOL Lipstick in ‘Pitch Black’, Six Pc. Eyeshadow in ’03 Splash That Cash’, Blush Duo in ’02 Chateau Rose’, Nail Polishes in ’13 Too Cute’, ’18 Coffee & Biscuit’ and ‘Blue Brigade’
(LOL Makeup Products usually do not exceed more than PhP 250-300)

Tried the palette and they’re nicely pigmented. The nail polishes are quite opaque and it has a decent staying power as well. The lipstick, well, let’s just say that when I put it on, I went completely nuts and drew lots of things on my face using my other palettes, lol. AAAND, the blush, well, I nicked it, but it’s nicely pigmented as well.


Beauty Buffet Masks (PhP 44 each) & Quick FX No-Shine Mattifier (PhP 89)

I haven’t tried these masks & the mattifier but I’ve been hearing a lot of great things about it ’em far.


BK Matte Nail Polish (PhP 80) and BK Glow In The Dark Nail Polish (PhP 50)
Eye Candy Online Shop

My niece gave this to me during the first week of November. Haven’t tried them yet, but I love BK nail polishes. They’re opaque and they offer a decent staying power.


Lashes & Lash Case from Saizen & Landmark


ZA Perfect Action Mascara, ZA Impactful Eyes in ‘PK201’, ZA Perfect Solution Toner, Moisturizer & Facial Cleanser

This is the loot bag that I got from their recent ZA giveaway. Unfortunately, I already own some of the items in this loot bag such as the skincare line. I was only after the mascara and the eyeshadow, lol.


I’ll be giving away, the toner, moisturizer and the facial cleanser. This giveaway will last for A WEEK.

    Sobrang generous mo talaga Ms. Yhette sa mga readers mo. And I’m proud na isa ako sa mga fan mo talaga. I love the make ups from this haul. More blessings to come and Advance Merry Christmas
    So my favorite post from you is the Thanksgiving: FOTD . Although wala tayong thanksgiving sa Ph, I used the look you’ve made in attending mass or whatsoever. Like na like ko yung look mo. especially yung combination ng eyes and lips, stunning. Natouch din ako sa mga pinagthank you’han mo. Kasi sobra kang mabait. That’s why your really blessed. And we will continue to support your blog as long na anjan ka, nandito kami.
    Request, hmm, I request na sana magkaron ka ng more post/review about make ups na ginagamit mo. kasi talagang sayo ako nakuha ng idea kung anong dapt bilhin o itry. Kumbaga eh, ikaw yung No.1 trusted consultant ko. ayun, sana magkaron ka pa ng madaming review and the masks na naandito, hope na may review din. Anyways, ENTER ME. Thank you and More powers.

    • Aww, thanks Marissa!

    i remember nung nagpost ka sa blog mo about ellana, and hindi ko pa kilala yung brand na un until hinanap ko sya sa the ramp trinoma. then yes, una kong binili yung ellana primer. sobrang maganda sya gamitin as base ng make up, mas smooth yung pagblend mo sa foundation/ bb creams/ concealer. it also makes your face smooth and matte. what i dont like about it is hindi sya nagsstay long. maybe the effectivity of it is only 3-4hrs, (i dont know but i have an oily skin soo idont know to others na merong other type ng skin). i love this product, its just the same as elf primer but a lot cheaper. and thanks ms. yette ksi ikaw nag-introduce neto skin d ko malalaman tong product na to kung hindi dahil sayo.
    i love the Virginia Olsen lip creme. i have the shade of “dark cherry” and the pigment is soo good. aside from it, it feels very light and moisturizing sya. Plus matagal sya matanggal, i think halos 3-5 hrs sya bago palitan (not so sure but its longlasting) just like other lipsticks. and affordable pa!
    and last, i love how quick fx no shine mattifier gives a matte effect on my skin na parang poreless yung skin mo. i’ve tried it and im loving it. and sobrang cheap pa! halos 90 pesos lang sya sa watsons pero mahirap sya hanapin ksi minsan out of stock sya.


    hmm, maybe your best post for this year for me would be, the flamingo fresh and thanksgiving FOTD. i hope may tutorial ka here sa blog mo like yung ginawa mo sa dati mong post na pictutorial or videoblog sa youtube. im looking forward to it miss yette. soooo yeah ‘ENTER ME!’

  • Jam Daquio

    Wow! That was a lot!!Ive used Ellana for a year now (concealer and loose powder). Cream Factory seems getting its popularity I noticed.

    • I got it all in the month of November and also some in the beginning of December (which was supposed to arrive during November)

  • The Red Notebook

    really great collection – lot to choose from

  • Love your haul sis! I’m really curious about that lol cosmetics. I can’t find them in malls near our place -____- anyway, Happy Holidays!!!

    • They’re eyeshadows are pigmented but they don’t have matte shades. -___-

  • Love them!!! Merry Christmas, Ms Yette!

    • Merry Christmas to you too!

  • Enter Me!

    Anyways, for your hauls, I like the Smashbox Master Class palette. hoping I can have that next year Its kinda a complete package. Also, I am so fortunate that I also get to try the cream factory… I so fell in love with this. It was fortunate that Martha gave me the Za cosmetic set..I also got to acquire the eyeshadows in browns and the mascara as well

    Going back to entering your flash giveaway, my favorite post of you is:

    How I Spot Clean My Brushes

    I did some back reviews since I started blogging in August. I wanted to know more about makeup, tools and techniques. Although I wasn’t active in commenting before (just a silent reader trying to digest everything). SO this is actually the first post that I came into about makeup brushes, and the rest research are history. I never took care of my brushes before, but eversince then, I made sure that my brushes are clean because it is still an important tool in makeup application and proper hygiene is still a concept when cleaning your brushes:D

    Actually, I am having difficulty using brushes being the ignoramus that I am. I just acquired a 22pc Snoe brush set. The problem is I don’t know how to used them..hahaha..Could you probably make a post on how to differentiate one from the other and where and how it is used? (or may be if you already did, I may have not yet run into that post yet)..


    • I’ll take a look at Snoe’s brush set and see if there are some things that I have here which are identical and prolly do a review about it.

    Any comments placed after December 30, 2013 are automatically not included in the giveaway. Thanks.

    • Marissa Colmenar Brioso

      Thanks Ms. Yhette! I didn’t expect this. Thank you very much!

      • aiko borja

        congrats your so lucky
