Last Cebu Haul and New Hair for 2012

Before I proceed to the products, I’d like to rave about my hair. LOL!

Since I am taking a major leap this 2012, I decided I might as well go all the way and take a huge risk by being very adventurous with my hair. I’ve tried doing tons of things to it and it finally gave up on me around four to five year ago. It was literally a mop on top of my head, plus it was dyed terracotta, ’nuff said.

I spent these past 4 years taking care of my hair, even when I decided to curl it. Now is the time to finally make a change and Ombre is the way to go! My inspiration — ? Lauren Conrad, that biatch looks great with any hair color, hate her (sarcasm)

I was told I could achieve the almost platinum blonde status after two to three bleaching sessions. I doubt my hair could survive that. It had to go through this long process because I have dark hair and it takes a lot of product to get the right color. Bleaching would make it easier 🙂

Here’s a messy, unedited photo of my hair color.


We can now move on to the jist of this post and that’s the product list and their swatches! I am fairly satisfied with them, even if I haven’t sufficiently harassed them yet. Here are the prices of each product:

  • James Cooper Cream foundation – Php 550.00
  • LA Girls lipstick – Php 254.00
  • San San Soleil lipstick – Php 100.00 – Php 110.00
  • San San Age defying blush – Php 100.00 – Php 110.00
  • 4U2 Reflections eye shadow Quatro – Php 194.00
  • Ever Bilena lighting lip gloss – Php 225.00
  • Ever Bilena mousse eye shadow – Php 150.00
  • L’abelle nail polish – Php 22.00 – Php 27.00
In case you’re wondering, yes, I did forget to show the San San Soleil lipsticks in the video. I just realized it while I was typing this post. I got Nude Caribbean and Peach Ibiza. I haven’t tried them though, but I’ve always wanted to, so, I purchased them during the Holiday sale.
Here are the swatches of the products so you can decide if you like them or not.


James Cooper Cream Foundation in CF-02




LA Girls lipstick in Sinful





San San Age Defying Blush in no. 01 & 03



4U2 Reflections Eye shadow Quatro

L’abelle nail polish in Oh my Gold, Golden Copper, Black Pearl, 14k Gold




I don’t have pictures of my San San Soleil lipsticks and I can’t photograph them anymore because they are deep in the crevices of my humongous luggage. I hope you don’t mind, but I did get Peach Ibiza and Nude Caribbean. I wanted to get Pink Tropics, but they were out of stock and I didn’t have time to get it when they restocked.


I hope this was helpful and I hope that you will continue to support my blog and my channel despite this drastic change. You inspire me to continue making videos and blogging, so thank you!


See you in my next post and may you have a great 2012 kick-off!

    i’m seriously sad that you are you are going. I’ve always loved your reviews on local products, especially San San products. Because of you, I had more frequent visits to HBC last year. In fact, most of the gifts that I gave away last Christmas were HBC products. 🙂 

    In many ways, you inspired me to be creative too. I know you will still make videos and stuff but it’s just different when you’re using local products.

    But I’ll still continue to watch your videos and support you. 🙂
