Let me tell you this was the most I have bought in a very long time and although it has been quite a while since I’ve posted a haul, there’s no reason for one person to buy THIS much! Except addiction! AND NO! I DON’T NEED HELP!!! *sniffs new mascara still in plastic package*

I am not ashamed... No, I am not, I'm not, I'm not, I'm not! I'M NOT!!!

The product I was most excited about!

The product I was most excited about! I have yet to slather all around my eyeballs but I CANNOT WAIT!!!

It is a Malaysian subscription bag so obviously Malaysian readers who want to get their hands on their next bag, go ‘like’ their Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/BagofLove/




Pulled this picture from my Instagram (follow me! DUH! @harivain). Got this from my glam squad member Lakshmi and Geetha! I did a collaboration post with them for Halloween, check it out, link here. I don’t know how much these cost because they were gifts and I’ve never purchased these before.

It is not a paid review. I was sent this in exchange for an honest review.

I couldn’t fit everything into one picture. So I broke it down to two; first up, stuff I won.


I won this, from Fiona! AGAIN!!! Hahaha! I think she has a soft spot for me! I won another prize from her a while ago (post here)! Look at all that stuff!!!!! Lip Hop is apparently a Korean brand.

Haul; Collective Haul (#8)

As much as I love buying makeup, I have come to realise, if I am not using something up, it seems like a complete waste of resources. And I am also looking into getting more high end makeup.

That doesn’t mean I am going to stop buying! Hahaha!!! 😛 😛 😛

I am just being a little more calculative when buying makeup nowadays.

Which is why this collective haul isn’t like I used to do it.

It is significantly smaller!

Haul; Thailand Trip Mini Haul (#7)

So, I went on a trip to Thailand representing the university, specifically my school (faculty) to Ubon Ratchathani University. I was among 4 others chosen (it was an all paid trip; SCORE!). We were to attend their annual Agriculture Fair and engage in information exchange, regarding both academia structure and cultural practices. We were even asked to prepare a brief cultural performance.

Just a little background information, Ubon Ratchathani is a northeastern province in Thailand. It is also the eastern most province of Thailand, bordering Laos and Cambodia.

We were taken sightseeing and also visited a shopping mall. I only bought three products in the course of the four days there so this is smaller than a mini haul. It is a teeny tiny haul.

One from Boots, one from Watsons, and one from the Don Muang Airport (domestic flight area not the duty free shopping area).

One from Boots, one from Watsons, and one from Don Muang Airport (domestic flight area not the duty free shopping area).



I haven't seen this cosmetic brand here and decided to grab this lip balm. The salesgirl (unlike condescending sales people here in Malaysia) was so nice to me. And because they spoke so little English, I had to try and try to ask them for a local makeup brand I can try out. They had none there. Only skincare (which was rather pricey).

I jumped for joy when I saw Boots at the shopping mall we went to. They had brands I have only ever heard of YouTubers and beauty gurus talk about, like No.7 and Seventeen. However, I wasn’t pressed to purchase anything. Price tags seemed to be quite heavy. So I bought this Boots brand lipbalm instead! Price; 64.50 baht, approximately MYR 7.50.


Airport shop.

Yeay, they had the entire range of the Megalast lipsticks!!!!!!!!! Price; 139 baht, approximately MYR 16.15. Here in Malaysia from Sasa it is MYR 22!!!!!!!!!

One of the places we visited. Wat Phra That Nong Bua; a Buddhist temple. It was so beautiful and amazing! The highlight of this place is Sri Maha Pho Chedi of gleaming gold and white chedi which loosely resembles the Mahabodhi stupa in Bodhgaya, India.

Haul; Collective Haul (#6)

Although collective, this wasn’t a big haul, even considering the fact that my last collective haul post was in October 2015! I might as well have participated in a low buy challenge huh?

Anyway, my picture settings have changed and I would like some feedback. I am loving it so far.


There are also products sent to me for reviewing purposes. So, as I usually do, here’s a breakdown.
Products sent for review


This is a range of products from the brand Paula’s Choice. Popular YouTubers like Tati and Wayne Goss have used and raved about it. I have already been using them and I love it so far (review coming up soon!). In the mean time, if you have heard good things about the brand and want to try it but don’t know where to purchase them here in Malaysia, you can order them from Facial Room Malaysia. Just visit their Facebook page and website for all the information.

Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/Facial-Room-Malaysia-544260578966164/

Website/blog: http://facialroommalaysia.blogspot.my/


I have previously mentioned Muffin Beauty; an online beauty review community in Malaysia. I am a member of their Beauty Club. They recently had a makeover and changed their name to BFF -Asia Beauty and Style (link here). To commemorate this upgrade they sent out a package to all their Beauty Club members with come skincare goodies. The one featured here is the Neesya Brightening Night Rejuvenator. There was also a face mask and some other samples.

AEON Big Haul


Both Essence products.

Make Me Brow; MYR 12.90.

Mydin Haul

Essence I ❤ Stage Eyeshadow Base; MYR 12.90 (MYR 15.80 at Watsons).



Indian shop Haul

I say Indian shop because I have forgotten exactly which shop I bought this from. However, if you are familiar with this brand, you would also know that these products are usually available in Indian shops (Cash N Carry). I bought it from Little India in Penang. Little India is commonly referred to certain places in Malaysia with a heavy concentration of Indian specialty shops.

Franch Moisturizing Cream (200 ml); MYR 9.90.



Also, I would like to share an amazing giveaway by a fellow blogger, Stashy. Stashy actually inspired me to do my 2015 Collective Product Empties post! Hi Stashy!!! Do head over and join her giveaway! Giveaway post link here. Was supposed to pingback this on my last post but I forgot *facepalm*.

Haul; Mini Haul (#5)

This is a teeny tiny haul because I wanted to share the things I bought with my Sephora gift vouchers I won from the giveaway by Sabrina (blog; SabbyPrue, link; here).

Teeny tiny haul, I know!!!

Teeny tiny haul, I know!!!

IMG_4282This is just the Tesco brand cotton facial wipes and I usually buy the value packs where it comes in two 100 pieces packs in one (1 100 piece pack = MYR 1.50; 1 value pack with two 100 pieces packs = MYR 2.55). It’s cheap and it works! I featured it in my first Product Empties post (link here). Price MYR 2.55 each (I bought two value packs).

IMG_4285I have always wanted to try the Sephora collection foundation because they do cost way much less than all other brands in the Sephora outlet (except NYX). I have had only positive experiences with all the other Sephora brand stuff I own and the range of shades in their foundation line is pretty impressive, to me, due to the simple fact that they carry very dark shades! I have heard only good things about this foundation in particular so I told myself, get it! Price MYR 69.

Aaaaannnd…… it comes with the one thing every makeup enthusiast loves in a foundation!

IMG_4298A PUMP!!!

IMG_4311The Better than Sex mascara!!! I bought the deluxe sample size which is a great way to try out a mascara. Price MYR 45.

Haul; Collective Haul (#4)

As I have said in my past haul posts, this is in no way to brag or show-off, however, since my blog tagline does read SharingisCaring, I’ll keep posting my hauls.  😀

This is a collective haul, so stuff I have bought since my last haul post. This time around a lot of the stuff in the haul were won from giveaways. Yes, plural. Hehehe.

The first I shall share is the prizes I received for a giveaway hosted by the gorgeous Sabrina N. Azmi whose blog is called SabbyPrue (link here).

She does this giveaway every year around her birthday so do follow her! Who knows you may just be her next winner and you can see she obviously does not hold back with the gifts!


I did my version of “The Power of Makeup” tag (link here); a tag popularised by NikkieTutorials. I’ll just attach the picture here.


The post was prompted by a competition hosted by The Body Shop Malaysia that I joined. I won the competition (along with two other winners) and these were the prizes that I got.

This was a giveaway by Chu Lip Malaysia and it was the easiest thing to enter and win! The giveaway is closed now but did share it on my Facebook page when it was announced.

IMG_4248I have already mentioned that I love this and have already reviewed it in the past! 😀


This one wasn’t technically a giveaway but it is courtesy of Muffin Beauty which is the largest beauty review community in Malaysia. Being part of Muffin Beauty would mean you post reviews on product you already have or one that you redeem from them. Redemption is available when you become a member of their Beauty Club. Steps to become a Beauty Club member and all the information is in the website and of course products you redeem is yours to keep!!! 😀

I have been hearing so much rave reviews about the Bioderma Cleansing Water and of course I redeemed it when I saw that a sample size bottle was being given out for redemption!

IMG_3823eIf you browse through my Instagram pictures you’ll see a comparison picture between this teeny tiny 20 ml sample and my full sized Biore Cleansing Water and see how adorable it is!!! I have used it and it is very similar to my Biore Cleansing Water but does feel softer on the skin and not as bitter as the Biore.

Oh, just FYI, not everything you redeem from Muffin Beauty is sample size. In fact, most are full sized products, the Bioderma is currently the only sample sized product being handed out for redemption.

Other Hauls

IMG_4196This is the L.A. Girl Matte Flat Finish Pigment Gloss (MYR 35) in Fleur (GLG833) which is not a gloss but in actuality a liquid lipstick that dries down completely matte. I bought it at a place called FS Boutique which is situated about a 10-15 minutes drive from where I live. It is a darker nude peachy colour.

No, no more additional stuff. Gave these stuff to mom because I don’t think I am going to be able to use them or I already have these products.

IMG_4144I purposely attached this picture because I wanted you to see how exquisite the Lancome perfume packaging is! I mean, how gorgeous is that bottle?!
