Summer Sunday #2 - More haulage from SportsGirl, ModelsPrefer, ZARA, TYPO

What up lovelies?

Hope you guys are having a wonderful weekend. Mine was easy and relaxing - apartment inspection, lunch with W, and more haul at Chatty, in my beloved DAISO and La Senza and Lovely Culture. Yeap, that was *quite a bit*. LOL. 

Anyways, I digress

So, this is the second post of my Summer Sunday series in which I talk about any summer related stuff - from haul to tips to must haves to favourites. Today's post is a continuation of the first Summer Sunday post and its one of the many hauls I have been doing lately. #BadAccountant 

TYPO - because I am a sucker for cute stationeries and pretty note pad
SPORTSGIRL - Always look through their sale section for some good buys and their new make up line is pretty impressive and affordable too :)
ZARA - Finally gotten something there after its opening a few months ago.
PRICELINE - I should be a VIP member by now, nuff said. :P

Clockwise from top left - TYPO, SPORTSGIRL PRICELINE, ZARA
TYPO - Raided their sale section (yes, I am a bargain hunter :D) for a "New York" note pad to jot down random thoughts which strike me when I am out and about; a food diary pad and a "Shit-To-Do" To-Do-List pad. 

SPORTSGIRL - A white envelope clutch, floral plimsole shoes, lippies and lipgloss. 

ZARA - Pink & orangey-peach cardis, which ironically have been put in full use the past couple of weeks considering we are in SUMMER now. =/

PRICELINE -  ModelsPRefer Inky Smokey Eyes Set, REVLON Vanila Soy Candles and SUKIN Aloe Vera Gel.

Since Through Beauty Eyes is predominantly a beauty blog, let's focus on the beauty products from this haul, shall we?

Products I bought in the name of "blog research". 

In accounting world, research and development are capitalised over a period of time and shouldn't be expensed. So, there you go, these products are more of an investment than retail therapy expense LOL. 

SportsGirl Pout About It Lipstick in Juicy Watermelon (Matte) ($9.99)

SportsGirl Pout About It in Fuchsia Splash (Matte) ($9.99)

Swatches L-R: Juicy Watermelon, Fuchsia Splash and Give Some Lip Liquid Lip Colour in Summer Holiday

ModelsPrefer Inky Smoky Eyes Set ($9.99)

I have tried ModelsPrefer Mineral Eyeshadow DUO and I really love them. ModelsPrefer has been making its name in Priceline the past year and they have really great products at a really affordable price. I will do a more detailed coverage soon on ModelsPrefer products. :)

L-R: Royal, Mystic, Vixen, Haze
As you can tell, the colours are pretty pigmented (with the darker colours more pigmented than the lighter colours) with just one swatch. 

With Flash - Royal, Mystic, Vixen, Haze
Without Flash - Royal, Mystic, Vixen, Haze
REVLON Vanilla Scented Soy Candle
RRP is $16.99 but I got it for $9.99 on special @ Priceline.
I have always wanted to try out candles but never really gotten the chance until I saw this on special at Priceline. 

I have been burning this for the past week and lets just say this isn't the best candle in the market. (Not that I have tried many to start with) In fact, I actually think that the vanilla scent is stronger after I put the fire off the candle.

Hope you guys enjoyed this Summer Sunday Haul #2. I am sure everyone loves a bargain yet awesome buy once in a while. :)

Have you been hauling much lately?
Share some of your bestbuys with me. :)
