Birthday Makeup Haul: Lancome, MAC, NYX, elf, Too Faced


July must be the month of mad spending!

After my birthday haul of close to S$200 at Watsons to make use of the birthday bonus points, and order of Sugarpill cosmetics, OCC lip tars, MAC sample pigments from ACW, and order of Lancome Artliner, Lancome Blanc Miracle, and Bobbi Brown Long-wear Gel Liner in Black Ink from a friend, I still went ahead to buy more makeup.

Level-headedness doesn’t go well with me during my birthday month, I guess.

So here are my loot:

Lancome Oscillation Mascara

MAC Eye Khol in Fascinating

NYX Ultra Pearl Mania in Rust Pearl

NYX Ultra Pearl Mania in Turqoise Pearl

MAC Eyeshadow Stars ‘n’ Rockets

MAC Eyeshadow Post Haste

MAC Eyeshadow Cool Heat

elf Dual Pencil Sharpener

Too Faced Papa Don’t Peach

Gawd, I really need to do a lot of catching with my blogging! I’m buying way much faster than I’m reviewing products!

About Bun Bun

Hello! My name is Juli and Bun Bun is my alter-ego. I blog to share my love for makeup, how to apply it, and what works or what doesn’t work, all from an Asian perspective.

My first makeup product was a shimmery light blue lipstick which I proudly wore all over my eyelids and lips. It cost $2.50, felt like $250, and made me feel like a million bucks.

Throughout this blog you will see Bun Bun in different poses.

Instead of using numbers (3/5, 4/5) or alphabets (B+, A+) to rate products, I put Bun Bun in different positions and expressions to represent the rating given to the product after a review.

In Bun-O-Meter, the first on the list would mean a 5/5 rating and the last one a 1/5 rating.

You can always refer to the sidebar any time you don’t understand what Bun Bun’s pose means.

I hope you enjoy reading my makeup and beauty posts as much as I did writing them.

Talk to you soon! =)

    Wow! I did my big make up haul in June and early july! Yet to post my theBalm haul on my blog! I went nuts when I finally got my hands on them when there was a 20% off at SaSa..but now there’s even more discount!

    Belated happy bday! I hope you have fun with your make up!

    Haven’t tried any of what you’ve got there! But I will need to get my hands onto a Lancome Precious cells virtuous mascara…that one has my favorite brush of all time on a mascara!

    • Bun Bun

      Oooh! I haven’t tried the Lancome Precious cells virtuous mascara one before. What do you like about it? I look for volumizing mascara because my eyelashes aren’t very thick, although rather long. And thanks for the birthday wish! I did have a wonderful birthday month! =D

      • Sharlynn

        I’ve tried the non-previous cells version but it’s the brush, curved, thin bristles that are firm enough to add lots of length volume but it separates so beautifully!! Lancome mascaras have a lovely formula, not too wet or dry and very buildable so yes to volume if you want!

        • Bun Bun

          Oh yes, I’ve tried the Lancome Oscillation and I’m in LOVE! The formula is really nice!!! I’m gonna do a review! =DDD
