Haul for the month of May: Online stores

Haul for the month of May: Online stores

I seldom buy online products if i can just find them in some malls or bazaars. Mainly because i hate waiting, and the shipping fee in some store is a bit expensive. Although its fine for me to wait for my product at the maximum of 1week. But other than that, I'll die waiting because of excitement to have the products already. :s
Most Products I buy online are cosmetics which is not available here in the Philippines or malls.

These were the products i bought for this month of May with their respective sellers:

 Beauty Cosmetic's 12 pc Synthetic Brush (will have a review on this soon)
 Top is the pink pouch

BB Cream is becoming popular now, mainly because of their benefits and promising results. BB creams can be a good alternative for liquid foundations and comes with benefits for the skin although the coverage may not be leveled as liquid foundation (light to medium coverage).
Ok so I'm in the quest of finding the right BB cream for my skin. I have read a lot of BB creams all over blogs and all of them has downside about BB cream. Some products works for them but some has not. The owner of the cheekyposh really helped me alot to find the right BB creams for me. She sells a lot of samples for girls who want to try the product first because a bottle of BB cream is a bit pricey and will just go waste if it doesn't really go well. Each sample can be used 3-6x applications
The product samples I bought:
Liole Beyond the Solution BB Cream
Skin 79 Super+ BB triple functions (pink)
Skin 79 Super+ BB triple functions (gold)
Missha Real Complete BB cream
Face it Powder perfection BB cream
Etude House Precious Mineral BB cream
Etude House Collagen Moistful BB Cream
Tony Moly Expert Tripple BB cream
Baviphat BB primer Fix

~a lot right? :D well, i haven't tried them all but here are some of my thoughts on the products (i'll update this if I already tried the other products.

Liole Beyond the Solution BB Cream - Great coverage, doesn't oxidize, doesn't break out on me, skin feels smooth, skin feels glowy, stayed for couple of hrs(3-4), but the color is too light for me
Skin 79 Super+ BB triple functions (pink) - the one i wanna have. Best for oily skin, great coverage, doesn't oxidize, medium coverage, stayed longer than liole, color fits me

Missha Real Complete BB cream - same as skin79 pink, but i love the coverage more.

Worth: 30-40php each sample

REVIEW: E.L.F. Zit Zapper & Concealer Collection

E.L.F. Zit Zapper & Concealer Collection

I breakout a lot especially a week before my period. So I'm looking for a product that willwork magically and eliminate my zits overnight or just help me lessen those big bumps on my face every month because I swear, I won't go out with a huge bumps on my face. >_<

So I was in SM Makati when I saw this product in the ELF stall. 

ThE Collection Content and their Description:
"Zap zits away with the unique blend of Salicylic Acid, Tea Tree Oil, Witch Hazel and Camphor. This special clear formula helps to fight and prevent acne, reduce redness and swelling, minimize pore size and clear skin."
Directions: Apply directly to blemishes daily or nightly prior to makeup application. Use as often as necessary

"Cover up those unwanted blemishes, circles, and spots! This creamy formla masks skin tone imperfections and redness, leaving skin with a healthy glow."
Directions: Apply directly to blemishes and blend in to cover.

"Achieve precise cover up with the on-the-spot corrective brush, specially designed to mask imperfections"

Price: 249.75 php

Then when i got home i immediately search for existing reviews, raves, or rants about this product. Surprisingly, i found alot of good reviews on youtube and some blogs and i was impressed by their raves that this product really works and etc etc.
Then the next day i woke up as early as possible and went to SM and buy this product because my zits are starting to appear. :(

The packaging:

 The Zit Zapper has a roller ball applicator, which is very easy to apply, other people's problem with this is they say that its very unhygienic. 

Thoughts on the product itself:

For the performance:
-For the Zit Zapper, well other people said that this works just overnight, well not for me :( This product doesn't worked for me at all ,even the pores, I've used this for a month but does nothing with the big bumps n my face. Although i noticed that small blemishes healed faster that normal.
-For the Concealer, i love the smell. HAHA :) hmm smells like sort of medicine but i love the smell. But the performance is not really that good. It covers some blemishes of course but doesn't last that long even if i put powder on top. hmm maybe it only last for 1-2hrs.  :(
-I like the brush but nothing special in it.

The products that work for me may not work for you, and vice versa. You might wanna try this maybe it would work amazing for you like the others.Doesn't work for me the good side is it doesn't harm my skin or even made my zits bigger. Much better to apply this on my little zits :)

How about yours? does this work for you? Let me know! :D
