Makeup Haul + New Bag!

I've been a bad, bad blogger, but oh well... readership is few so it doesn't really matter :P I've been primarily busy with assignments (It's almost the end of the semester) and with my personal life (Trying to get a part-time job, etc.), which explains the lack of updates. Anyway, these are the few things I've gotten since the last update, and are on my list of "to review" (And with a summary) :D

Majolica Majorca Pressed Fantasia 24H- Pressed powder, mainly to set foundation. Alright for traveling purposes but not good enough to topple my Make Up For Ever Super Matte Loose Powder as HG item.

Majolica Majorca Skin Lingerie- Makeup base/primer. I like, but I'm still on the lookout for a better one :x

Chanel Mat Lumiere Luminous Matte Powder Makeup SPF10- My first ever purchase from Chanel and my new HG foundation! Forgive the smudges >_>

I've been trying very hard to keep my expenditure under control, which explains the lack of new stuff I've been buying.

I also got a new handbag from Borsalino from House Of Leather as a gift :D Which is about time I got a new handbag, since my Guess Osaka Top-Zip handbag needs cleaning (I've sent it to the dry cleaners), being cloth and PVC and metal. Mum was also right in that once you get a nice, proper, branded bag, you'd tend to want more, but in my case it's justified by needing a spare handbag :P

It's almost the same size as my Guess Osaka Top-Zip handbag, but instead of black and white like the Guess Osaka Top-Zip handbag, this is white and gold. It was a surprise gift anyway, so I didn't have a choice :P It's a nice colour combination though, but of course being white it can and will get dirty. Thankfully it's leather (Wrinkly matte leather) so it's easier to clean!

A closeup of the tag. According to the tag it costed half the price of my Guess Osaka Top-Zip handbag, but it doesn't really matter since it's a very nice quality bag.

An attempt to take a shot of the interior. The zip is wider in comparison to my Guess Osaka Top-Zip handbag (But that also means that I can't leave it unzipped or the contents will be liable to fall out) and the interior is quote roomy. The inside is also just like the Guess Osaka Top-Zip handbag- a zipped compartment, a cell phone compartment (Which I use to keep my Coach Hamptons Signature Mini Skinny wallet) and pocket compartment.

Overall, I like it- it's leather, easy to clean and the same size and all as my beloved Guess Osaka Top-Zip handbag. The cons are just that it will get dirty easier and I can't leave it unzipped, and oh, I'm not too fond of such handles as they slip off easily and it annoys me. I won't be replacing my Guess Osaka Top-Zip hand though- I'd just be swapping around :P
