My 1st Sephora Online Haul | GCash Amex Winners

OMG my Sephora orders arrived right in time for Christmas!! :) I got it in less than 10 days after it was delivered to our courrier’s US address. So quick! The box was huge and the shipping fee from the US to my doorstep was only P1,900+. My only compain though was that Sephora stuffed too much paper in it. I guess it’s to avoid damage and breakage during transit but the contents consited of 70% paper even though most of the cosmetics I ordered were small.

Here are the stuff I got for myself: Sephora Tanning mist & bronzer, Ciate Caviar Mini, Dior Mascara, Clinique Chubby sticks for my BFF, Sephora Primer (currently addicted to this!!), Sephora Violet lipstick and Benefit Stay Don’t Stray set. I’m really thankful for gcash-amex because I got all of these at marked down prices; around 30-50% cheaper than it’s selling price here in Manila. Some aren’t even available in the local market!


And now, for the moment you’ve all been waiting for… My GCASH-AMERICAN EXPRESS contest winners!!! :)

For 4th place, I chose this chic SEPHORA BLINGED PALETTE. It’s a small and very compact palette complete with eyeshadows, lip color and blush. The colors are really nice even if it’s a bit smaller than expected. (size: iPhone4)

Congratulations to Ruth Jimenez for winning this!!!! :)

For 3rd place, I got one of my makeup obsessions, EYEBROWS!! This Sephora Arch it brow kit is soooo cute!!  It’s my favorite item in this shipment. I’m so sad I didn’t order one for myself. :(

But I’m really happy for Czarina Bantay for winning this!!! :)

2nd place, I picked 2 items: This Ciate Caviar mini set & Smashbox try-it kit.

I love Smashbox but I was quite disappointed at how tiny the kit was. Almost all the contents are about as small/short as a standard lip balm. But I was really happy with the Ciate Caviar mini set. It was bigger than expected.

I hope you like collecting mini stuff, Chesca Mendoza. because these babies are yours!

And last, the 1st prize, the super crazy SEPHORA COLOR DAZE BLOCKBUSTER makeup set!! Again, it was a bit smaller than expected but it’s really cute and worth it especially if you’re the type who doesn’t like clutter because EVERYTHING you need is found in this box.

You are a very very lucky girl KHRIZEL ASIS!!! I hope this will insipire you to experiment on different makeup looks! :D
