USA Beauty Haul

As you know, I recently spent 4 weeks in America and whilst there, I obviously bought some makeup. I did try and pick items up that I couldn’t get in the UK or that are cheaper in America than the U.K. I only picked up a few things, simply because I’m not a millionaire and almost all of these things I had planned to purchase before I went.

 
Firstly, the biggest item that I purchased is the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance palette, which I got from Sephora for $45. I’ve had my eye on this palette for SO LONG. So yes, I’m aware that Im super delayed at getting this. Until a few months ago I hadn’t even thought about getting it since I thought i had a lot of the same shades in other palettes, however when I swatched it in store I couldn’t get over how soft and gentle the shades are and how the pigment blew me away. I haven’t ever tried anything from ABH before so I thought this would be a good time to trial and test the products. I’m over the moon with the palette and can’t wait to test it out to its full potential. 
I also got the Urban Decay De-Slick Oil Control setting spray. I loved the Urban Decay All Nighter setting spray so I jumped at the chance of trying out this one. I do get very oily throughout the day and I’m hoping that this changes the way my makeup looks and sits on my skin. I did purchase a travel size and this was around $13.

The hype of this product has been around for so long now and I just knew I had to get it. So when I saw it in Target I didn’t hesitate to purchase it. The Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer has been an absolute storm in beauty and everybody talks about how amazing it is, especially the scent. This was around $14 dollars and having only tried it twice, I can’t give a full review but I can say that the smell is gorgeous.  


Just like the bronzer, I just had to try one of the Wet N Wild blushes, I got a shade that is a coral tone as I find that it compliments my skin well, especially with a tan. I honestly don’t remember the price of this product but it was definitely lower than $5 and again, I’m yet to try this as I wasn’t wearing makeup during my time in America. 


I also come across Elf Brushes at $3/$4 a piece. I know these can be purchased in the U.K. but I couldn’t help but purchase some due to the pricing of these. I bought an angled foundation brush that I’ll use for highlighter and concealer. The other is a fluffy contour brush, but can also be used for other products. These brushes are super soft and apply makeup generously and comfortably. 

Finally, I was desperate to pick up something from Tarte and I especially wanted the Tarte Shape Tape. However, I went to so many Sephora’s and I still couldn’t find a store that sold it. Instead, I went ahead and purchase the Tarteist Pro Glow To Go palette. This is just a 3 pan contour and highlight palette. I do want the larger contour and highlight palette but I didn’t want to spend the money if I didn’t like it. I opted for the smaller palette that has 2 highlight shades and 1 contour/bronzer. The bronzer/contour is quite dark and I thought it would look like mud on my face but fortunately it doesn’t at all. It blends amazing and I can’t wait to use this repeatedly to give it a proper trial. I got this in the till section so I’m unsure about the pricr, approximately between $15 – $20. 

Let me know if you want reviews on any of these products!

Beauty Wish List

In one month I’ll be flying out to New York for the whole summer and whilst I’m there I will definitely want to buy a few new makeup bits. I’ve had my eye on a few things that I would like to purchase whilst in the States and I thought I would share with you guys what I’m thinking of purchasing when I’m out there. 

Colourpop have become a world known brand and it’s near impossible to get delivered to the UK since the international delivery is so expensive. I’m super interested in purchasing some of the Colourpop single eyeshadows and some of the Colourpop liquid lipsticks and ultra satin lipsticks, especially the shade ‘November’ which is in collaboration with Kathleen Lights. 

So many people have been raving about the Sonia Kashak Soft Focus Satin Matte Foundation and I can’t wait to pick it up and test it out for myself. I love a good Matte foundation and it’s apparently supposed to be really full coverage, so definitely looking forward to getting myself this foundation. 

Tarte has been killing it with their new releases, but mostly I am so excited to get myself the Tarte Shapetape Concealer since so many claims say how amazing it is. I would also really like to pick up one of the Tarte eyeshadow palettes as I’ve heard people say how pigmented and bendable they are. 

When I visited Spain last year with Matt I went into the Sephora but regretted never purchasing any of their brushes. I especially can’t wait to purchase some of the face brushes. I would also like to get some of the Sephora Collection face masks, especially the 

A few other items that I would like to purchase are: 

  • Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer 
  • Wet & Wild mascaras. 
  • Jordanna Lipsticks 

Perhaps I’ll even get the chance to pick up a few things that I’ve not heard of before. I’ll definitely be on the look out. Give me some recommendations in the comments on what you guys think I should definitely get.
