Skincare and Makeup Products Haul: Avene, Nars, Ofra, Colourpop, Embryolisse, Nuxe, Bioderma

My sister just got me some skin care products (got me means bought for me = not free haha) from... PARIS! I got really excited when she said that after her business trip in U.K., she and mom will be travelling to Paris and Italy (to visit my cousins as well). I got excited not because of the Eiffel tower (though yes partly, okay yes it's one of the reasons), but because of the skin care products!

We all know that Paris is a haven when it comes to skin care products. I also remember that my derma mostly suggests/recommends skin care brands made in Paris. This is because they make products with subtle/non-irritant ingredients which are great for those who have a sensitive skin like mine.

First, let me show you the skin care products I requested my sister to buy in Paris

L-R: Embryolisse, Avene, Bioderma, Nuxe
These are available if not, in every Pharmacy in the city! Could you believe that?? You can get it at a much lower price and even cheaper in lots. While here in Manila, they sell it like a luxurious product (crazy isn't it?).

Next are the liquid lipsticks. Liquid lipsticks are a hit last year so I tried and bought the most raved brand which is LASplash. The staying power, I can say is really great. However, I didn't like the paint-like smell of it and the very drying formula on my lips.

So I wanted to try the brands Ofra and Colourpop which beauty gurus have also raved upon. Good thing my colleague was in the US so I was able to order the favorites -- Ofra Pasadena and Laguna beach and a Colourpop Tulle which was given to me by my boss. All I have yet to try.

I also bought the new Anastasia Beverly Hills brow definer in Chocolate.

And last but not the least, I bought Nars' audacious lipsticks and radiant creamy concealers here in Manila.

I will try these little babies and post my reviews soon! :)

Please let me know your thoughts in the comment box below if you have already tried any of these!

Much love,
