First of all, I LOVE Sephora. Why o why we don't have them in the UK? They're packed full of amazing beauty brands - premium and high street, I was like as kid in a candy store. In New York it seems like they're on every corner.
|Sephora Times Square - thanks to the cop for blocking my shot!|
So many people said I had to check out Tarte blushers so that was the first thing I did. I really wasn't sure which colour to go for (should have done more research before I left) and they were hard to swatch for some reason but with a little help from the assistant I went with Blissful - described as a warm peach but I'd say it's more coral. Full reviews and pictures will of course follow.
I also picked up a Sephora blush Rose Sorbet 16, Cleansing Water and Sephora by OPI nail colour in Havana Dreams.
I went to MAC (of course) but it was hardly any cheaper than the UK so it seemed pointless stocking up. Instead I picked up a couple of things in duty free. Brow Duo in Brunette (£17 in UK Duty Free) and Highlighter in Light Boost ($23 in US Duty Free).
I popped in a few Drug stores to find some bargains and was thrilled to find Wet n Wild. My friend Yessie from Cinnamon and Zoey Kisses sent me some amazing WnW lipsticks and eye shadows in my US swap (haul coming soon I promise). This time I picked up a couple of nail polishes... less than $2 each, what a steal!
I also stocked up on Clinique DDML ($47.50 for two) and treat myself to Repairwear Laser Focus... cos after a week in the Caribbean I figured I'd need some repairing.
So there you have it, I promise reviews, pics and swatches coming soon.
