i went to thailand (another haul)

I recently had the incredible experience of visiting Bangkok, a city that made all my consumerism dreams come true. I only had two full days to spend in Thailand and we stayed at Novotel Bangkok in Siam Square, just a brisk 10 minutes walk from Siam Paragon and other shopping centers. Needless to say.. I shopped… a lot. What blew me away was the abundance of skincare and cosmetics; if you’re a beauty lover like me, Bangkok has to be on your bucket list. I decided to pick up items that we only available in Asia and I had to practice a ton of self-restraint from not piling up my suitcase with beauty products.

Cathy Doll NUDE ME Liquid Lip Matte in ‘Naked Heart’ and Cute Press Goodbye Dry Lips in ‘Cinnamon’. I successfully managed to only picked up two lip products, the liquid lipstick has a great application that goes on evenly and the color truly mattes down and has incredible staying power. The lipstick is super hydrating and has great color payoff as well.

Colors are not the normal nude that I go for, these are deeper, warmer and more peachy. I do regret not picking up more color in my usual nudes and is currently thinking of placing an online order for the Cute Press lipsticks because they are so hydrating.

I’ve been a huge fan of Canmake for years now, I mean.. look at this packaging! This quad of eyeshadows is right up my alley, it’s called Perfect Brown Eyes Palette in No. 3.

The rest of my haul mainly consists of skincare, Bangkok is literally heaven on earth for a skincare junkie and I really had to show self-restraint. Senka Perfect Whip (tried + true favorite, so happy to have this back in my routine), Etude House Baking Powder Pore Cleansing Foam (another past favorite), Etude House Wonder Pore Essence and Biore AQUA Rich Watery Gel SPF 50.

These Sailormoon masks are truly the star of this haul. Each pack contains 5 sheet masks, this product contains no English information so sadly I have no idea what these are supposed to do, but they do feel quite hydrating and smells nice.

Petite Face Masks (2) Vita Brightening Shot and (1) Vita Firming Shot from Etude House; these are pretty cool because they contain an ampoule that you are supposed to activate by pouring into the sheet mask first. I also picked up two lip masks and two charcoal peel off masks.
