A New York Sephora and Walgreens Haul


It's been a solid 2 months since I came back from The States. You get back from a holiday and quickly settle back into old routines as though you had never been away. I came back to university and got distracted, only to realise now during my exams I never posted a good old beauty haul.

Now there had been quite a list of things I wanted to purchase whilst in America and I knew the drugstores and Sephora would be my first port of call. After a few days of sightseeing and an evening in the big apple free, we decided some shopping was in order.


In Sephora I knew I had to head straight for the Anastasia Beverley Hills counter. Although many online stores in the UK do now stock the brand, it is still much cheaper in the US and I also had chance to see the shades in person. 
After hearing a lot about the Dipbrow Pomade I picked up the shade Chocolate which matches me exactly. I love the texture of this product and after using a powder for so long it's definitely different. Another thing from the brand I wanted was the Contour Kit in Light/Medium. This constantly sells out online and I picked it up for $40 as opposed to £40!
Other great finds include the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette which was also a bargain, a Beauty Blender and sat just next to the tills as though to entice me, a double ended mini BITE Beauty lipstick. These are so creamy and pigmented.


After leaving Sephora happy with my new buys, I headed to Walgreens picking up two Wet n Wild lipsticks for a combined price of $3 (around £1.90). These are so great for the money and I definitely wish I had picked up a couple more. I also bought an Essie nail polish in There's No Place Like Chrome, a colour I had never seen in the UK and the Milani Baked Blush in Luminoso which is not pictured.

Lastly I headed to MAC to see if I could pick up Velvet Teddy lipstick which is never in stock on the MAC website or at my local counter. To my surprise they had lots of them and after realising how much cheaper everything was compared to home I picked up a 15 pan palette and two shades to accompany it - All That Glitters and Amber Lights.

That just about rounds of all of my beauty buys from NYC. I'm still upset I couldn't get my hands on the Lorac Pro Palette whilst I was there, but there is always a next time. I'm sure I'll be back soon!
