HAHA! "For when I go travelling when I'm about 80". Love it. You did some crazy shopping girl! Jealous.
Old ladies need their travel-sized creams!
Must same am very jealous of your haul! I can't imagine what it'll be like when I make my first trip to Sephora - I'll probably max out my credit card and spend at least 2 grand!
It's hard to stop! I actually put a lot back I really still wanted too!
Your hair always looks so perfect!! I'm so jealous!! I like the look of the Benefit box, but wish it came in a lighter colour not just medium. I saw it instore and felt like I just wouldnt use much of it.I LOVE Ecotools brushes. They are fantastic!
Heh, no I just manage to wrangle my hair into an appropriate shape before hitting record :)
I hate when they think everyone is orange or brown with foundations. :P
Same! They would sell so many more of these, and I can't imagine it being a huge expense to produce in more shade seeing they already have the product.
Okay, as someone who is planning a New York trip/beauty stock up trip next year, I have to ask, did you make a 'wish list' of what you wanted to get before you left? Or was most of this a 'ooh, I'm getting that' purchase? Or a bit of both?Do you have any tips or suggestions for efficient/effective beauty buying overseas? Would love to know ;)
Lucky you! NY is next on my travel list!Okay, I had a battle plan when it came to checking out MAC, Sephora and even the drug stores (hello bargains!).I read tons of US blogs to get a vibe of what people like (Revlon Kissable Lip Stains, yes. Maybelline Bouncy Blushes, no.) and started a list as I went.Suss the Sephora website for products, and make sure to sign up for their VIP card to earn points to cash in for product when you leave.I also looked at the products I like here and noted the costs to compare in the US. MAC is really cheap, as well as brands like Revlon, Bourjois, Clinique, and swatched foundations etc here so I would know what suited me already (means less time trying in the US, more time shopping!).Always suss the discount stores like Ross, TJ MAXX, Nordstrom's Rack and similar - they often have really discounted bath and body products as well as perfume. I got a great Cynthia Rowley bag here too for so fricking cheap. Stock varies between each store, so always make time to duck in.Make use of vouchers in drugstores and any clubcard you can sign up to for free, as extra discounts are normally only applicable to members.I also got some great suggestions when I asked for them here http://www.latherrinserepeat.com.au/2012/07/usa-shopping-wish-list-what-should-i.htmlHope this helps! xM
