Phil-Cosmetics Expo Haul

This is my separate post for my haul during the 4th Phil-Cosmetics Expo. I have an allotted budget for this expo because I want to practice myself to spend not more than what I have allotted. I did not bring any extra money so that I won't be tempted to buy more. That is also the reason why I was very thorough with checking which item I should be buying. I do not want to make any mistakes. If I had to go back to a booth and back to the previous again to compare prices (even if they are in both ends of the area) I will and I really did.

Let's start of with my Ever Bilena / Careline haul. As I have said from my previous post, they had 50% discount off on all their products so here's the stuffs I bought:

Careline Face Powder - P50

Ever Bilena  Color Pencil - P44 each

Ever Bilena Pro Lips with Shimmer - P63 each

Ever Bilena Matte Lipstick - P73

Ever Bilena Cheek Blush - P75

Digital Traincase, one of the trusted online shops of the bloggers, was also there and as I already have access to US branded makeups like NYX and EOS, I did not buy much from them. What I did buy are the nail polishes because my US Beauty and Fashion Blogger friend, Fashiometics, cannot ship nail polishes because they're flammable. So here are the nail polishes I bought:

NYX Nail Polish - P150 each (Promo: Buy 2 get 1)

For Kairyu Nails, I'm so glad that I got to talk with the talented owner, Kate Vergara, and she was able to teach me a few tips in doing nail art. Hope to see her again soon. Here are the stuffs I bought from her nail store:

2-Way Nail Art - P100

Nail Decal - P50

Thin brush - P100

Swatching Nails - P50

I passed by a booth selling Bobbi / Chic Nail Care stuffs and they also have this very inexpensive lip scrub which is made from natural ingredients. So, I bought it:

Go Natural Lip Sugar Scrub - P42

I also got a free Facial Pass from the Mary Kay Cosmetics Booth. Their beauty consultants are so nice and friendly. They won't force you in buying anything; unlike the booth beside them. (Ehem):

Here are the samples I got from the Cosmetics Expo:

I also bought some stuffs from Penshoppe for a Get Up access and a 2 stamps for the Fan Conference Card. I bought dad a shirt and I bought these two foot wears:

Penshoppe Flipflops - P279

Penshoppe Sandals - P499

I had a great time at the Phil-Cosmetics Expo. I was superbly overwhelmed with the stuffs I saw there. I hope to see more shops next year and do share at the comments section below if we bought some similar stuffs from the expo.

Till next post! ;)


  1. Nakuha din ako ng free stuff na mga soap. I wanna try sana kaso baka diko mahiyang.

  2. wow 50% off for eb items.. great buys sis

  3. I didn't enjoy the expo maybe because I expected too much. But I agree with you on the Mary Kay people!:) they're so friendly and charming! Their smiles are contagious.:) I love them! I love your post.:)

  4. It's quite annoying that you always say "stuffS". The plural form of stuff is also stuff FYI.

  5. Thanks for sharing Gellie~ The people at Lory's are nice as well. They are going to deliver my tubs here at home they ran out at the booth that's why. I hope to see u soon!

  6. I wonder which company is beside Mary Kay's. :D

  7. @Sweethestia - Imma go try 'em and tell you if ok sa akin. Pero I don't think I'm buying those kind of soap eh :P

    @Belle - I was super shocked sa 50% off! :D

    @Sam - True, parang kahit hindi ko kailangan I wanna buy na rin talaga kasi they really entertain everyone :)

    @Anonymous - Thanks for that; people make mistakes sa grammar esp ako when I get too excited with my posts so instead of adding up na it's annoying, you could have just corrected me in a nice way or if hindi, don't be ANONYMOUS :) If you'll see my other posts, madami ding typo na recently ko lang nakikita. Anyway, thanks for that Anonymous. If you're annoyed, feel free to click the X button there. ^^ Thanks! :)

    @Genn- Lory's loyalist ka talaga! See you soon! :D

    @Pammy - Company's initials are VJ ;)

  8. Super! Plus they're too generous to give free GCs kahit d ka bumili.:) Nakakagulat how happy and bubbly they were.:)) it's my first time to be in an expo kasi. Gunshow lang pinupuntahan ko because of our company pero walang ganun ka-bubbly! LOL I love Mary Kay na tuloy!:)) BTW, I kniw the booth beside Mary Kay. Super kulit!:) they'll block you kung saan ka pupunta! HAHAHA tapos while stopping you nageexplain sila, nakasimangot naman.
