Huge USA Makeup Haul

Sephora, Mac, Kylie, Anastasia and Drugstore

This post is waaaay over due but you know how it is, life gets in the way sometimes but I thought 'hey better late than never right'. So in November/December of last year my son and I went to Florida. Whilst there I splurged a little on the brands that aren't easily accessible in the UK and took full advantage of some of the Cyber Monday deals. Over the three weeks we were there I soon lost count of how many times I visited the Disney Springs Sephora and I think I went to every Walgreens in a 30 mile radius - So if you'd like to see what I got, please keep reading ...

Stuff I had delivered

Before I left, I emailed the hotel to see if I could have stuff delivered there and they said yes, so I took full advantage of having a US address for 3 weeks. I had stuff delivered from Kylie Cosmetics, Colourpop and Anastasia Beverly Hills.

Kylie Cosmetics - I'll admit I went a bit OTT with the Kylie but I really love the formula of these and these are so much more expensive to get at home. I got lipkits in the colours;
  • Pumpkin
  • Love Bite
  • Dolce K
  • Spice
  • Trick
  • Maliboo 
  • Vixen - from the Holiday Collection
I didn't get them all of CM but I did get three or four at 20% off *winning*

ColourpopI had planned to get a few Colourpop bits but didn't have anything in particular I really wanted to try. I know everyone raves about their $6 liquid lips but I have so many liquid lips I wanted to try something else. In the end I ended up getting a few eye shadows, Highlights and a blush. I've only actually used the blush so far and sadly I'm not a fan of the formula.

  • Prenup Blush
  • La La Eye Shadow
  • Sequin Eye Shadow
  • Cricket Eye Shadow
  • Coconut Eye Shadow
  • Monster Highlight
  • Over The Moon Highlight

Anastasia Beverly Hills - There were a couple of items I know that I wanted before I flew out and didn't want to risk them selling out on CM so I ordered them before hand* but everything else was on some sort of offer;
  • Moonchild Glowkit*
  • Sweets Glowkit*
  • Stick Foundation in Porcelain
  • Clear Brow Gel
  • Brow Powder in Soft Brown
  • Brow Wiz in Soft Brown
  • Eye Shadow in Prussian Blue - these went down to like $6 and literally every one but this was sold out.

I was actually a bit disappointed with the drugstore stuff this trip, how Youtubers find all this amazing stuff I don't know but I did manage to get a few things;
  • Rimmel lip liner in Cafe Au Lait - on the recommendation of Patrick Starrr (these were actually a lot more expensive than they are in the UK but this particular colour isn't avalible in the UK so I brought it anyway)
  • Coty Airspun powder - again thanks to Patrick
  • Elf Eyebrow Kit - this was a repurchase 
  • Wet N Wild glitters - because they were like 59cents
  • EOS lip balms
  • NYX black liquid liner
  • NYX lip art in a rose gold and gold
  • All the lashes - Wispies, Demi Wispies, Assorted Kiss lashes
  • Duo lash glue
With the crappy exchange rate at the moment, Mac wasn't actually any cheaper in the US so I didn't really get much;
  • Mac Pro full coverage foundation - Patrick again 
  • Lipstick in Lady Danger with the red lid because I really wanted one and I had all the other shades
  • Lipstick in Pick Me Pick Me

And now for what everybody has been waiting for, the Sephora haul!!! I actually hit Sephora VIB whilst out there - I'm not sure I should be proud or ashamed, I think I'm proud but it's such a bummer I cant really take advantage of that whilst I'm home. Anyway, here's what I got -

  • Cinema Secrets brush cleaner - on the recommendation of every YouTuber ever
  • Tartiest Pro Palette
  • Tarte Blush palette
  • Tartlette in full bloom
  • Urban Decay All Nighter Foundation
  • Peter Thomas Roth Facemask gift set
  • Cover Fx Custom Drops in Celestial 
  • Modern Renaissance palette
  • ABH X Mario Palette
  • ABH liquid lipsticks in Soft Lilac, Veronica, Dusty Rose, Ashton (Patrick again) and Alison
  • ABH brow brush 12
  • ABH shadows Orange Soda and Fawn
  • Estee Edit Pore Vanishing Stick
  • Laura Mercier Translucent Powder - Repurchase
  • Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder
  • YSL primer*
  • Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk* 
  • Vera Mona Shadow Switch for Sephora
  • Sephora Professional fan brush 
I actually returned the Luminous Silk and YSL primer as I realised that I overpaid on them so much. Surprising they are both cheaper to buy in the UK so I ordered them from Debenhams.

I think that this is everything I picked up on our trip. Writing it all down seems extra as AF but you better believe I'm going to do it all over again when we go back this October. What are your favourite US brands to shop?
