Of course I did haul in Bali, just a modest one...
A floral tube dress...
Nike socks and sports bra, apparently, Nike products are cheaper in Indonesia than in Malaysia.
Beautiful beaded bracelets from Bali...
I was out of supply for eye cream, I considered purchasing Clinique's All About Eyes Rich and came upon this promotion. A free 10 packs of Moisture Surge Eye Mask with purchase of a 7ml All About Eyes Rich. Can't help giving it a try :P
I also claimed this sample of Clinique's foundation for a try...
The BA was kind enough to let me try their SPF 50 Sun Block too...
My MAC hauls! My current powder foundation was also hitting pan, so I opt to go for MAC's Mineralize Skinfinish Natural.
The lipglass here, Young Thing from Makeup Art Cosmetic's Collection was bought on impulse, but I really love it! It is like the lipglass form of MAC's Creme D' Nude lipstick *hearts*
MAC's 217 Blending brush is a must have! My first MAC full size brush apart from my MAC's SE brushes.
Black Russian pearlglide liner from MAC's Love That Look Collection.
Also purchased My Beauty Diary Mask to try on. One of the products highly raved by bloggers.
That's about it, hopefully I'll manage to do reviews on the products I have here :D
