A lot of Catching Up!

I've got so much blog reading to do! But the good thing is I can at least have fun reading blogs than twiddling my thumbs at school hehe.
I didn't buy THAT much from Hong Kong. It probably looks like a lot just because I got everything at once =p So many FOTDs to do. A lot of the things I got were because of other bloggers tempting me (Fuz, Yumeko, Lotus Palace, Cuttibebe just to name a few =p) I'm so deprived of all these Japanese goodies that I had to stock up, I needed something to cure my bordeom in Korea.

Paul & Joe galore...I spent approx. $475CAD on it haha...and nope I don't feel any sort of regret or cringing when I think about the price, it was well worth it. Just when I thought I was done my P&J haul, I ended up going back on the last day to snag the makeup mist and the cream shadow after seeing Fuz's recent posts.

The non LE lippy is color #13. It's a nice peachy beige tone. The lipglosses are #4 and #3. I kinda regret getting #3 because I didn't realize it it looked so coppery, it might end up going into my lesser used makeup pile.

Mini Majolica Majorca haul that includes the new mascara and lipgloss.

Maquillage stuff which I'm sure almost everyone has their hands on already =p

Misc. things. The pink curler has a piece of sheet metal inside, so when you heat it up you can just leave it on your head while you do other things, so much more convenient than holding an iron. Underneath the curler is a clip and stand for falsies. I had such a hard time trying to put them on so hopefully this neat lil invention will help.
The pink thing on the bottom is a bangs styler. It's a metal clip which you can use to make that perfect little curl for your bangs or make the perfect side sweep. I haven't been able to use it properly yet cuz my bangs haven't grown out yet. Next to that is a rubber face scrubber, nothing special.
Incase you're wondering, the blush is from Muji...I luuurve that store.

Coffret D'or blush in OR24, it's a peachy pink blush. I also got their pressed powder and I'm liking it a lot. So much better than the current one I'm using (Etude House Baby Skin Veiling Pact), it doesn't cake, blends smoothly and doesn't leave a white cast on my face if I apply too much.

Believe it or not, I still have a few things coming from HK. When I got to the airport on Saturday, the lady told us that Tim and I were only allowed 20kg per person, which is one luggage! We had no idea of course because the Korean travel agency didn't make it clear to us. We each had 2 piece of luggage that went well over the limit. So at the airport, we had to break open the luggages and sort out what we needed right away. The rest was some misc stuff, a shit load of food and clothes. Tim's papa will be mailing us the 2 luggages soon so I'll show you what else I got when it arrives XD

Also..I dunno how it happened, but in one night, I got 19 mosquito bites on my legs!!! @__@ Wearing jeans with itchy bites is a big no no..

paperdollrevenge said...

I love your haul!! It's so dreamy...let me know how the P&J foundation works out for you! It looks like it's just calling me to buy it, hehe.

I am a late night kinda gal. That means I'm still awake while you gals in Asia wake up to start your day, hehe. =P

Jamilla Camel said...

I am fainting with desire over your haul! You certainly can go head-to-head with Fuz in the shopping department ;-)

Looking forward to you wearing your purchases!

queenyee said...

Bunnie said...

Oooh, look at your hauls! I'm so jealous of the P&J! I have 4 things from P&J, moisturizing foundation primer #2, protective dual powder foundation, and the whitening emulsion. Actually, I'm waiting on 3 of those 4 to arrive LOL. I actually don't have any Maquillage stuff..=/ I've been lemming the C D'or mousse shadows! Love cream shadows. I'm glad you're back, can't wait for your reviews and FOTDs. :D XOXO

fuzkittie said...

Yayyy!!!! Haha, hey, why is my name first on the list of bad influences?!!! xP

So many great things you got!! You have great taste woman! Hahaha. What is that clear P&J liquid in glass bottle?

I wanna know how you like the Skin Lingerie!! I'm interested in base makeup, haha. So excited for you and your new makeup collection, haha! :D

19 mosquito bites?! O lord...

Cathy said...

So much stuff!! hehe

I got those strawberry sponge stuff too, but I still haven't been able to figure out how to make them stay! I don't really like how my hair comes out super curly =( And the fringe curler thing, I was thinking of getting it, but I don't know if I should... hmmm...

smilecusiluvu said...

NICE HAUL!!!! I have the shu's mist and I LOVE it haha I;'m sure u'll enjoy everything =)

Eva T. said...

The metal fringe curler looks promising! I wonder if you can heat it up while it is in mid-clip.

angie519 said...

Eeek damn mosquito bites! I got one on my thigh .. o.O

You got some great stuff!!! Is that RMK?! Oooh you got the Sofina serum and shu! Yay! I'm planning a big P&J purchase! I might add a lippie or gloss!

How do you like the Moisture lotion? I want that to use in the summer time instead of the essential moisturizing cream.

I'm glad you got the package!! Well you were wearing a blue nail polish in a photo so I assumed you were open to brighter and darker colors =P

Hahha I have about $30+ in student loans haha >.< so I know how you feel!

Don't get me back! This was me getting you back silly! =P

CuttiBeBe said...

AAAHHHHH OMG!! look at you!!! super haul!!! you got bit by the P&J bug! hahaha...

i hope you like everything you received... i still haven't received your package yet. i'm so anxious! can't wait! it sucks they opened up the package though.. hope nothing's damanged..

damn 19 mosquito bites? what kind of blood type r u? they must love you out there! lol... put ointments on it! don't scratch it, ok?

oh babe, i know how it feels to hate your job, cuz guess what? i hate mine too someitmes.. haha.. but think of it as an experience. you learn how to deal with people, how to deal with kids, it's all valuable lessons.. enjoy it to the best u can ok?

MiuMiu said...

Thanks for the comment Blair,
I do like pink indeed! It's probably my fav shade for lipglosses and e/s haha
it'll probably take me a while to get to the reviews, i usually use my things on the weekends. during the week i stick to plain old tinted sunscreen and powder.

MiuMiu said...

Hey Eva T!
I'm having trouble with the clip right now..mainly because my bangs aren't really long enough to do anything. you can definitely heat it up while it's clipped..but you have to hold it out a bit instead of leaving it hanging, otherwise after heating..there's gonna be this weird dent/curl on your hair..hahaha i dunno how else to explain it =p

MiuMiu said...

Hi Smilecusiluvu,
Thanks for dropping by!
I'm loving the Shu mist too! I hope I don't run out, cuz Korea doesn't sell Shu XD

MiuMiu said...

Hi Cathy,
I can't figure out how to make them stay too! even twisting it around and such, it'll find it's way to slip off my hair! argh! good thing i only got 1 pack =p

Cathy said...

Yes!! It keeps slipping off mine too. *grrrr* I bought 2 packs... Dahhh... When I watched the demo on Nu Ren Wor Zui Da, they made it seem so easy! *sigh*

M said...

WOMAN! i'm drooling over here looking at all the amazing items you picked up. this is hauling at legendary status! can't wait to see what else is coming from hK!

Ladyfei♡ said...
