One of my goals this year is to minimize my shopping and be wiser with how I spend my money – and that means limiting my beauty purchases. I have not been shopping as much, but I am very blessed in that I have very supportive friends, and I get to work with some really amazing brands.
These past couple of weeks have been crazy hectic with me being sick, house training our new puppy and work stuff, so I haven’t been able to share the new bits and bobs that have come in so I thought I’d share everything that I received and bought recently on a blog post instead of on my social media (IG Stories). It’s @ninasinganon on Instagram, btw *shameless plug* LOL!
Snoe Beauty Goodies
I have been seeing Snoe Beauty for a while now and I have always enjoyed looking through their products, but sadly never had the chance to try any of them. The packaging is quite unique and they have products that cannot often be found in other brands, so when I was invited to their Primaries Festival, I did not hesitate! It was a super fun event with lots of creative, beautiful people! We were given a bag of goodies to try and I cannot wait to start using these. I am especially excited for the Stink Positive Shower Spray because having a new puppy means lots of vaccines, which in turn means more days of foregoing baths for little Zoe so I need something to freshen me up after carrying/cuddling her. Also interested to see how well the POtion No. 2 will work for bathroom emergencies. 😉

Althea Korea Haul
I love shopping on Althea. I’ve always had a good experience with Althea for the past 4 years and I have discovered so many new Korean brands because of them! I recently ran out of my face wash, and I also needed a new eyebrow product since I lightened my hair. As I was looking through the website, I also remembered I wanted to get another one of the Big Meringue Puffs, as well as a new primer since I was all out of the one that I was using (The Ordinary High-Adherence Silicone Primer). I ended up buying 3 more things on top of that hahaha! You know how it is, go in for one thing, walk away with a lot. #BeautyAddictProblems
- Nature Republic Aloe Vera Soothing & Moisture Aloe Vera Foam Cleanser
- Missha Wish Stone Tint Velvet in Pure Pink Coral
- The Saem Cover Perfection Pot Concealer in 02 Rich Beige
- Rire Luxe Slim Eyebrow Pencil in No.2 Deep Brown
- Macqueen New York Waterproof Pencil Gel Liner in 02 Expresso Latte

I was contacted by the Hayejin Cosmetics local PR and they asked if I was interested in trying their Toner and some of their face masks. I am always down for trying new products so of course I said yes. I have been trying to take better care of my skin and part of that is doing a masking session at least once a week so I am looking forward to using these masks! I also just re-added Toners to my skincare routine – I used to just do Cleanse and Moisturize since most toners I’ve used in the past were too harsh on my skin but this one seems to be gentle but effective! I will report back on this soon.

Jouer Best of Metallics Lip Cream Collection
One of my best friends gave me this Jouer Lip Cream Collection just because haha! No special occasion or anything, she just thought I’d get more use out of this than her LOL! Told you, my friends are awesome! The shades that caught my fancy were Snapdragon and Clove. I don’t own a lot of metallic lipsticks and these are a welcome addition to my kit. Fun fact: I used to wear a pretty purple metallic lip cream in high school so this takes me back to those days. Oh fun times LOL!
- Long-Wear Lip Crème in Bronze Rose: metallic cool deep rose
- Long-Wear Lip Crème in Citronade Rose: metallic ballet pink
- Long-Wear Lip Crème in Clove: metallic warm deep burgundy brown
- Long-Wear Lip Crème in Papaye: metallic warm peach
- Long-Wear Lip Crème in Praline: metallic cool bronzed pink
- Long-Wear Lip Crème in Snapdragon: metallic cool frosty plum

Department Store Haul
I took my contour powder with me on a trip recently and it broke, so I needed to get a new one. Good thing it isn’t expensive so I can easily get a replacement! The Shawill Perfect Powder in shade #3 has been my go-to contour product for years since I first discovered it what – 3 or 4 years ago? The price has gone up since then but it’s still affordable at Php168.00. I also needed a new peach corrector and saw the Careline Peach Stick so I thought I’d pick it up and try it as well. Hopefully it works because if not, it’d be a waste of Php199.00! Lastly, I bought a pack of make up wipes from Miniso (Php119.00). To be honest, I got this for the packaging because I want to put a pack of wet wipes in the car and I think the container will work perfectly. It is refillable, so I plan to take out the Miniso wipes and replace it with a pack of regular wet wipes.
- Shawill Perfect Powder – Shade #3
- Careline Peach Stick
- Miniso Make Up Wipes
I am obviously very excited to try all of these and experiment. My passion for make up has been reignited and I find myself wanting to play with beauty stuff more!
