I am back from my trip to New York! As I mentioned before, I grew up in New York, so it’s always great to see my old friends. I’m still sorting through pictures, but here is a post on what I hauled!
I don’t normally post hauls, but I treated myself since I had just finished Project 20 Pan again. It’s one of my pleasures of going to the US!
Please let me know if there is anything you want to see a review on!
Revlon Colorstay Foundation for Oily/Combination Skin
This is available in Japan as well, but (1) it comes with a pump, (2) there is only one formula, (3) it costs $25.
L’Oreal Youth Code Dark Spot Correcting & Illuminating Serum Corrector
Is it really necessary to have the word “correcting” in the name twice? However, I have heard great things about this serum, and I’m testing it out now.
Milani Baked Blush in Luminoso
The color isn’t THIS vibrant… you can see that my background is very blue!
Rimmel Fix & Perfect Pro primer
Cover Girl Lash Perfection mascara
I’m surprised I like this mascara so much. It gives me volume without the huge brush of Lash Blast!
L’Oreal Infallible lipgloss
I’ve raved about these before! They obviously don’t last 8 hrs, but I really like the formula, and the wands are also interesting.
I limited myself at Bath and Body Works, surprisingly.
Bath and Body Works Aromatherapy Energy Orange Ginger travel sized shower gel and body lotion
The full sized bottles of these were in very heavy plastic. I would probably drop them in my shower!
Bath and Body Works Coconut Lime Breeze travel sized shower gel and body lotion
Not sure what I think of the scent yet, but I wanted to remind myself that summer (and summer vacation season) is just around the corner.
Bath and Body Works Aromatherapy Sleep Lavender Chamomile travel sized shower gel and body lotion
I enjoyed the scents in this line very much. A nice change since Bath and Body Works scents have become more generic in the past few years.
Bath and Body Works Aromatherapy Stress Relief Eucalyptus Spearmint body cream
The only full sized item I bought!
Bath and Body Works Malibu Heat body lotion
This was a $1 bottle that they were selling to get people to try the scent before it is officially released.
L’Occitane Hand Cream
$28 at Sephora in the US, $38 in Japan (mostly due to the exchange rate)
Maybelline Illegal Lengths Mascara
The ads say that this will add 4mm (which I highly doubt), but I always want to try a few new drugstore mascaras when I visit the US!
Sally Hansen Salon Effects Real Nail Polish Strips
I bought a bunch of these. They are perfect for girls like me who are crappy at painting their own nails! I tried one when I was in NY – and they definitely need a top coat!
L’Oreal Infallible eyeshadows in Iced Latte and Gold Imperial
With so much hype, I had to try this product out!
This became my go-to eyeshadow during my vacation. Easy and flattering.
You can see that on my skin, it ends up looking almost white.
This is a LE color for summer. It is very gorgeous! Very gold and much more glittery than the other ones.
This picture makes my skin look very yellow!
The much hyped Naked 2 pallete
I actually haven’t played around with this yet, but I’m looking forward to it!
Revlon Precision eyelash glue
I tried this after hearing that it’s just as good as the DUO lash adhesive. It’s better – cheaper and the brush applicator is so much easier to use!
Make Up For Ever Mat Velvet + Foundation
I’m looking forward to trying this in the summer!
Not as big of a haul as you’d expect, but I excluded some staple products that I buy each time I go to the US, like my Clarisonic brush heads. Please let me know if there are any products that you would like me to review!
