It’s time to show you what beauty bits I picked up in NYC. I have had to split this into a couple of different posts because I brought so much, oops. I’m starting with the biggest haul: Sephora. I visited a lot of different stores because I just love the place, I fell in love with New York not only for its amazing buildings and incredible site seeing destinations, but for the amount of Sephoras that city has.
I did have quite an extensive list for this trip and stuck to it pretty well.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kit in That Glow: I have seen these highlighters have become quite a hit on Instagram and they look absolutely stunning. I know that we can get these in the UK now but it worked out cheaper in states. I wanted the kit in Gleam but they had sold out everywhere (believe me I visited all the locations that stock ABH, even Macy’s).
Kat Von D Shade and Light Palette: I already have one of these but have hit pan pretty badly on three of my fave shades, I just had to stock up whilst I was there. I use this palette every single day and absolutely love it.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette: Another ABH purchase, this launched on the Wednesday when I was there and I obviously just had to have one. Have you seen how gorgeous it is?
Becca X Jaclyn Hill Champagne Collection Palette: This also launched on the Thursday in all Sephora stores (I picked a good week to be in the states) this palette is beautiful and it has full size products inside so it’s a really good value for money. Can’t wait to play with it.
Glam Glow GravityMud Face Mask: I love Glam Glow products, their hydrating mask saved my skin on the flight to and from NYC. I was itching to try their gravity mud mask which is lifting and firming and helps reduce the size of pores. I have tried this since being back home and I can say that I am hooked, can’t wait to use it again.
Elizabeth and James Rollerball fragrance in White: I have fallen head over heals for Elizabeth and James products recently. I have one of their bags and I used it every day whilst I was in NYC, it’s gorgeous. Their beauty products haven’t disappointed me, I wish I’d picked up the full size white fragrance, but the rollerball will have to do. I also picked up their dry shampoo in the White scent because I needed one whilst I was away and it lured me in at the till point.
Makeup Forever HD Stick foundation: After trying to get this at IMATS a couple of weeks ago and having a drama with that I decided to just pick one up in Sephora. I love this. It does tend to make me look a little shiny but the finish and coverage is beautiful.
Marc Jacobs Undercover Perfecting Coconut Primer: I tried a bit of this on the back of my hand and it was so hydrating and smoothing that I spent the next week searching around different sephoras in order to get one. So good.
Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer: I already own this concealer but the little miniature also lured me in at the till point. However I picked up the wrong shade, this is my tanned shade so great for summer but wish I’d picked up my actual shade to throw in my bag.
Tatcha Luminous Dewy Skin Mist: The most coveted item on my list. I needed to get my hands on a bottle of this dewy goodness. I wish I’d brought more to stock up on because this stuff is incredible.
Becca X Jaclyn Hill Champagne Pop Liquid: I got this the same day as the palette, this stuff is perfect for the summer. I’ve used this a couple of times on clients at work and they have all fallen in love with it, its just gorgeous.
Anastasia Beverly Hills #23 Brush: I brought this to go with the glow kit to use for highlighter, but now I wished I’d brought more for my makeup kit as this brush would be ideal for contour as well as highlight.
Fresh Sugar Lip Polish: After wearing liquid lipsticks none stop recently my lips have been looking really dry and flaky, Ive heard nothing but good things about Fresh so I picked up their lip scrub.
Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask: The best lip mask i’ve ever tried. This combined with Fresh lip scrub makes my lips look healthy and moisturised.
Too Faced Melted Matte Liquid Lipstick: I brought the shades Child Star, a pinky nude and Queen B, a soft mauve nude. Expect to see a review soon because I have so many new liquid lipsticks to share with you.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick: I brought 4 shades from Sephora. Milkshake, a pale pink nude, Naked, peachy nude, Stripped, a neutral beige nude and Crush, a soft pink nude.
I brought a lot but I have been saving for this trip for such a long time. I can’t wait to start creating some looks with all of this and reporting back to you if I like it.
