Mini Makeup/Skincare Haul

I've been doing a fair bit of shopping lately... it's not as much as usual since it's mainly restocking of my HGs or Holy Grails.

I finally managed to get Make Up For Ever Super Matte Loose Powder in #12 Translucent Natural from the Make Up For Ever kiosk at Suria KLCC. The Make Up For Ever counter at 1 Utama is either always out of stock for the loose powder or for the colour, so since that day my sweetheart planned on bringing me to Suria KLCC I managed to book one the day before and pick it up :D I've been using #10 Translucent White all the while, but I prefer #12 Translucent Natural as it's tinted. A full review will come soon! And in the meantime, I'm trying to sell off my half-used #10 Translucent White here :P

Went to Parkson at 1 Utama today set on restocking my Origins A Perfect World For Eyes eye cream and getting the Make Up For Ever Lift Concealer after reading about it on My Makeup Reviews and researching on it on Makeup Alley.

The promoter at the Origins counter there was a very nice lady (I'm so sorry I didn't get her name though), and she introduced me to the the Origins Sensory Therapy Peace Of Mind On-The-Spot Relief. She just said that Origins also emphasises on relaxation and taught me how to administer the product on myself properly- that was all. She then went to write up the confirmation of my purchase for the my Origins A Perfect World For Eyes eye cream. There was no pressure to buy, no rude pushy further explanations, nothing at all. I was quite impressed. She didn't even ask if I wanted it until I asked her how much it was, and even when she replied she didn't do it in a "Buy it!" tone. Very professional in my opinion. It was when she confirmed my purchase for the Origins Sensory Therapy Peace Of Mind On-The-Spot Relief that I realised that it was part of the Breast Cancer Awareness Month promotion and gave me a pink ribbon and leaflet. So for the whole month of October Origins is doing a promotion for their Origins Sensory Therapy Peace Of Mind On-The-Spot Relief!

I didn't know it because the promoter didn't push it in my face obviously. And I liked it. I liked how, despite the promotion for such a cause, she didn't push for it directly, but with more subtlety and professionalism. If only more promoters can be like this! Most that I encounter are pretty pushy and scares me away x.X Even my sweetheart was impressed.

A close-up of what I've bought- Origins Sensory Therapy Peace Of Mind On-The-Spot Relief, Origins A Perfect World For Eyes and Make Up For Ever Lift Concealer. They will also of course be reviewed in due time... just be patient and bear with me T.T

I'm going to have a facial done tomorrow by my cousin- a beautician. I'm so excited XD It will be my first since I moved back here and goodness knows how much I need it D:

Great buy on the Origins On The Spot Relief. I absolutely love this one. It's great for headaches, better than minyak angin :p

I love origins SAs..they are always very nice and polite...and not pushy. Love the "aromatherapy" product...

@ Tine: Oh yes, it smells way better than minyak angin obviously! :P It kind of reminds me of Wrigley's chewing gum though!

@ Evon: Come to think of it, it is quite true! I went to Origins in Gardens MidValley once and they were nice enough to let me just browse through their stuff, unlike some SAs/promoters who will follow you like a hawk, recommending you this and that and expecting you to buy something...
