Massive 4u2 Haul!

i know, i went really crazy in the 4u2 stand at SM manila. but can you blame me? they are just soo pretty!

the haul as follows:
1. 4u2 I-pro Eye Makeup Modern Palette
2. 4u2 I-pro Eye Makeup Classic Palette
3. 4u2 I-pro Eye Makeup Impressionist Palette
4. 4u2 I-pro Eye Makeup Contemporary Palette
5. 4u2 DreamGirl Color EyeShadow in No. 03
6. 4u2 DreamGirl Color EyeShadow in No. 13
7. 4u2 DreamGirl Color EyeShadow in No. 09
8. 4u2 DreamGirl Color EyeShadow in No. 06
9. 4u2 Chic Couple 2-Color Silky Blush in No. 01
10. 4u2 Chic Couple 2-Color Silky Blush in No. 10
11. 4u2 Wave Three Color Blush On

i originally bought the neutrals palette, which they call the Modern palette, along with the single eyeshadows, and i was able to get the i-pro palette for free. when i went home, i cannot get over how pigmented and nice the shadows are that i just have to have the rest of the palette. when i went back, two days later, i was supposed to get the Contemporary and Impressionist palettes, but the SA showed me the Classic palette which is the matte palette and i just had to have the matte ones! so i bought the Classic and Impressionist palettes, along with 3 blushes. again i was able to take home 2 of the ipro freebie palettes. then finally, i went back to get the Contemporary Palette so i could have all 4 palettes.

the freebies

technically, they arent free cuz you have to pay 1 peso for each once you've reached a minimum single receipt purchase.

to get the i-pro palette (which looks like the Nars' Bridal Palette, but more on that on future posts) you have to get a minimum of 1,500PhP single receipt purchase. i was able to get 3. imma give away one or two, so stay tuned for the details! :D

also, for a minimum of 300 peso purchase each, i was able to get:
1. 2 pcs freebie foundation
2. Glitz Mirror

L-R no. 03, no. 13, no. 09, no. 06

no. 3 is a beautiful silver white, my favorite of the bunch, no. 13 is a deep copper brown, no. 09 is a pretty old rose color, which would be spectacular as a highlighter/blush as well, and no. 06 is a beautiful yellow-gold color.

i already posted swatches cuz i've no intention of posting separate reviews/swatches for each.

i love:
-highly pigmented
-lotsa colors available
- does not crease
- long lasting

i hate:
- cheap packaging
- breaks easily (as you can see, i just salvaged my no. 03 shadow)

L-R Chic blush in no. 10, Wave blush in no. 05 and chic blush in no. 01

i realized i don't have enough blushes, so i bought some fantastic yet affordable ones.

makeupjunkie said...

@bea - thanks, will be checking you out in a while. :P i love impressionist too! my roomie said it's soo me!

@shobe - can i call you shobe? my mandarin is a bit faulty, but if i remember correctly shobe is "little sister" feel free to correct me. ive no idea what i'm talking about. :P
i know, it's a lot!! yea, they do have matte shades na, but i don't think it's displayed in the counter. you have to ask for it pa.. each one costs 994 pesos, but i think it's worth it cuz the little palettes would set you back 400 pesos and the pans are really small. :P

Sush said...
