October Beauty Purchases
Happy Friday! I thought I would share all my beauty purchases I made in October. I went a little heavy on the beauty items last month and have so many new things. I haven’t had a beauty splurge in a while so last month I decided I needed a few new things. I actually made a beauty shopping wish list a few months ago now and listed things that I had my eye on. Well I decided I did need a few things off of it so here we are. If you missed that post you can read it here to see more of the items on the list that I didn’t pick up yet. With those items in mind I bought a few and others that weren’t on my list. So here is all the beauty items I bought in a little haul!
Miniso Brush Set w/ Cosmetic Bag // 399php
I’ve been needing some new makeup brushes so I went all out in October. The first one I picked up was this three piece set. It has a large powder brush, a buffing brush and a setting brush. I think this is such a good set and I don’t own brushes like this. I think you can tell they are trying to be dupes for the Real Technique ones. They were such a bargain and I wanted to try it out and test them to see which is better. It comes with it’s own case too so it will be great for traveling.
Miniso Eyeshadow Brush // 99php
Next one is two eyeshadow brushes. I am in need of a lot more eyeshadow brushes so I picked up this set and at 99php that is pretty cheap. They look similar again and have the same color scheme as the RT ones. I might have to do a comparison.
Real Techniques Setting Brush // 599php
Now a few days after buying the Miniso ones I went to a mall that stocked Real techniques brushes. it is actually my first time trying them out. I have the sponge and use it but never tried the brushes. They are easier to get a hold of now and I am happy to try them. I heard good things about the setting brush so I can’t wait to apply things with this brush and see how I like it.
Real Techniques Expert Face Brush // 650php
Another RT brush and this is a face brush which is another favorite and it even says so. I don’t usually blend in my foundation with a brush anymore but I think I’m going to try it with this. I have watched makeup tutorial after tutorial and see this brush being used to blend in liquid foundation and it looks so flawless when they are done so I hope it can do that for me as well. Now I am so excited to do my makeup and try out all my new makeup brushes as well as displaying them on my vanity.
BYS Peach Palette // 1,199php
I’m kind of cheating with this one as this was a purchase in September and not October but it was sitting in the pile so I included it. I saw it was in stock at the counter finally in my local mall so I couldn’t skip the chance and picked it up. The colors are stunning and I don’t own anything like this. I love the peach tones and wanted to try it after seeing so many pretty makeup looks with peachy hues. I recently shared a review about it so you can check it out if you want to see my thoughts here.
NYX Micro Brow Pencil in Brunette // 699php
As I said about my beauty buys shopping list I bought a few things from it because I was intrigued by them. The first I bought from that wish list was from NYX. I was intrigued by this brow pencil and heard great reviews. I love trying new brow products. I’m so exctied to try it and see what it does and if I can get those pretty brows I have been seeing. There was so many amazing stuff at the NYX counter and I want to go back with a long list of more stuff to get.
Maybelline Hypersharp Liquid Liner // 499php
This is another repurchase. I have been loving this eyeliner and I have been creating perfect cat eyes and lines with this as well so when mine was drying out I knew I wanted to buy another. It was on sale too!
Maybelline Gel Pencil Eyeliner // 199php
Since I had a liquid liner one I got a pencil for days when I don’t want to be fussed with lining my eyes and getting both the cat eyes to match. Nothing wrong with having a spare eyeliner pencil especially since I used it for Halloween and used it on my cousin to draw whiskers and a nose as she was a cat.
Maybelline Age Rewind Dark Circle Eraser Concealer // 399php
Next product from my beauty buy shopping list was this concealer. It finally launched here and I finally get to try it. I heard so many amazing things about this and it does wonders so I needed to try it out myself. I went to the Maybelline counter to pick one up. There is only 3 shades available here in light, medium and honey. I usually always go for honey if it has an option as it is the closet to my skin tone but if not I go with medium so I was at a cross road when I had those two options. The saleslady there pointed me to get the shade honey as it will match my skin tone better. If not then I can just go back for medium as well. I’ll let you know how I get on with it once I try it.
Deng Deng False Nail Packs // 32php each
There is this bookstore in the town of my parent’s and I always go there. I buy my blog photography props, stationery and there are so many other things in there. For a local store it is one of my favorites. I use to buy them in Rite Aid when I was back in the US. They’re helpful when I am in between manicures and don’t have time to get them done. I used to love applying these and they bring back my pre-teen years. I needed them for an event and my nail lady was out of town so I went searching for them again. I went to so many beauty stores inside malls in the city to find some and no luck. I find them in a local bookstore instead. I got these two pairs and I’m yet to try them. I used one set for a Halloween costume as they looked so cute and match so well with it. I’m looking forward to bringing back memories when I apply these again.
Tangle Teezer Dupe // 69php
So in that same store I found this tangle teezer dupe and it was so cheap. I thought I would try out the style. There were so many colors and sizes but I went with the classic one just because it looked cute.
Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara // 399php
This is now my third tube of this and I think you can see how much I love it. I haven’t bought this many tubes of one mascara and this is the first. It was on sale at the time too so a big bonus as I saved 150php off the original price which is always a good thing to save money when needed. It dries out fast and it is a good thing to change mascaras quite often so I needed to pick up a new one so I just repurchased it again.
Happy Skin Pretty Clean Instant Makeup Eraser // 499php
Again, I kind of cheated with this one and it isn’t from this month but from last but I need to add it in just because and to show you. I was given a press release for this collection but I wasn’t given this product and after reading the PR packet and being curious I picked it up. I needed it too as am always making mistakes and this is the perfect product for me. Also how cute is the packaging. I can’t wait to try it and see if it does what it claims. If it does I need to buy one for every makeup bag.
Essence I Heart Stage Eyeshadow Base // 249php
Another product in my beauty buy wish list is this eyeshadow base. I don’t own one and I heard good things so into my basket it went. I’m so excited to try this and since I have many eyeshadow palettes I want to play with and Halloween looks coming up this will be a handy base to start trying it out. There’s many other interesting products at the Essence counter and I have to go and see what else they have if I end up liking it.

Those are my recent beauty purchases. I still have a few things on my wish list to get. I still need to pick up a few things from my shopping wish list I did last month. I want another foundation and a setting powder to set my makeup as I am needing a new one. If you want to see me buying this stuff and a mini haul than I show it in Vlogtober which I uploaded up on my channel and the last one just went up. A lot of this is in the vlogs and I talk more about it if you want to check them out. Also maybe I was thinking of doing a fashion version too so I might do that next month if I have a lot of clothes purchases which for me I probably will. Let me know that or do another beauty version when I buy stuff. I missed doing hauls and would like to start doing them again or showing you a few of my purchases once in a while. That’s what I bought beauty wise in October!
