On Coastal Scents, a new scent, soaps, a godchild and energy-saving bulbs

Customs Officer: What’s in the package?
Me: Uhh.. make-up.
Customs Officer: Why, no make-up in Dubai?
Me: (atribida ka, inggit ka lang!) *smiles*


So… my Coastal Scents shipment finally arrived! πŸ™‚Β  I picked ’em up at Karama Post Office last weekend..

Lookie at the ginormous box, containing 5 palettes, 4 lip glosses and 4 brushes

coastal 01

coastal 02

Show and tell!!

CS has a new range of lipglosses called Smacks. I think there are like 21 of them total, but i got only 4, which are the ones that, according to a Youtube guru I subscribe to, are comparable to MAC dazzleglass.

coastal 04

They came in this bag, along with the two brushes i ordered:

coastal 08

coastal 09

Lanvin Eclat d’Arpege: smells like.. well.. violet!


I also picked up a coupla stuff from LUSH, after getting inspired when i stumbled upon their website the other day. Literally, i got a couple – meaning TWO – things at the store because, well, its hella expensive!

coastal 10

first, i got a soap called Sultana of Soap.

coastal 11

It’s white, creamy and soft with chunks of raisins and nuts of all sorts. I used it this morning and i think i felt, for the first time in my life, how celebrities must feel taking a bath. not because the soap is really good (but it is good), but because of the knowledge that you’re scrubing away the day’s grit with a AED 30 a bar soap.

coastal 12

Later on towards the end of the day, i smelt the soap on my skin while trying to reach my right elbow with my right hand (what?? I was dared!). pretty darn good, i must say. at that price it better be.

coastal 13

Honey I Washed the Kids: the other soap that I have yet to try.

coastal 14

It smells really, really good, and check out that beeswax atop the thing. hmm.. looks promising.

will tell you kids about it on my next blog.
