Collective Haul

Hey Ladies,

Today's post is gonna be a collective haul from Sasa, Canada and various places in NYC. Be forewarned, this post is very picture heavy! ^.~

Let me start off with a pic of how my nails look today:

All I used was clear nail polish and some very fine white iridescent glitter. Its just a simple semi-clean look.

Now on to the haul! Diana and I did some online shopping at Sasa and picked up a "few" items. hehe. 
I picked up some nail art glitter. Now I can go crazy with the bling!

Pink grapefruit scented oil blotting sheets!

Since there have been such good reviews about the Laneige Strawberry Yogurt Pack, I thought it is time for me to give it a try. When I opened it, it smelled EXACTLY like strawberry yogurt. Yum! I think it's gonna take a lot a will power to keep from licking it when I have it on my face lol.

This is supposed to be a very good spot whitening serum. And that fact that it's limited edition. . . just gotta give it a try!

decided to get a mask bowl set. it'll come in handy one day right? It comes with measuring spoons, the bowl, a brush and a spatula. The green color wouldn't have been my first choice but they didn't let you choose the color. :(

I totally forgot the purpose of this, but it's SO CUTE!!

I've heard a lot about Skin Food masks so I decided to pick one up. Smells soooo good!

When I went to Montreal I saw GOSH products at a pharmacy called PharmaPrix. I wanted to try at least one product from them since GOSH isn't sold in the US. I decided to pick up a lip gloss. 
There really isn't a color to it. It mostly goes on clear. Its not really sticky and its really smooth. 
I didn't really get much in Montreal. Was too busy sightseeing lol

Went to Walgreens a while ago and picked up the Mega Shine top coat and the new Sally Hansen Continuous Treatment for strength. 

I've been using it for about 3 weeks now and I really like the Mega Shine. It's supposed to make your nails look super shiny, make your manicure last for 10 days and it's also supposed to dry in 60 seconds. It does make my nails really shiny and it does dry in 60 seconds but if your nail polish underneath is not completely dry, and you accidentally brush your nails against something, it won't mess up your nails like usual, it will cause wrinkles in your nail polish though since the top coat as already completely dried. I haven't really been able to test out the claim about the manicure lasting for 10 days since I do my nails so often, I very rarely keep the same nail polish on for 10 days. As for the Continuous Treatment for strength, I really haven't noticed a difference in the strength of my nails. I guess I'll test it out for a while longer.

My MAC Technakohl eyeliner broke so I had to go get a new one :(

I also got the Konad system. It takes some practice but after I got used to it, I'm really liking it!

That's it for now. Let me know if you'd like any reviews of any of the aforementioned products!

Have a good weekend ladies!

Hi Winsley :) Great haul girl!
I was just checking out Diana's most recent post using her Konad plates. Did you buy the Konad system at the store or did you order it online? Your nails look so pretty with the glitter - and soon with gems and stuff ;) I'm really thinking about getting the Konad plates because there's so many pretty designs!
I know what you mean about the Mega Shine...I've been using it for a few years now and I really didn't notice much difference between that and the raved about Poshe top coat I'm using. Just here the Poshe one is more pricey...
Ooo and I didn't know there's grapefruit scented blotting sheets now!
