As you’re reading this, I am away travelling along the west coast with Trek America and no doubt having the time of my life. Unlike previous trips to the states (New York & Las Vegas) where I have gone prepared to shop, New York particularly. I haven’t gone on Trek America to shop, I have gone for the experience of travelling and seeing the parts of the west coast I would be unlikely to see if I wasn’t on a tour. That being said, this won’t stop me running at force towards a Sephora, Ulta or Target when I see them so with that in mind, I have created an American beauty wishlist.
- Kat Von D liquid lipsticks
- Sigma makeup brushes
- Lorac Pro Palette
- Too Faced Love Flush Long Lasting 16-hour Blush
- Tarte Light of the Party Collector’s Makeup Case
- Origins Bestsellers Set
Since Bourjois released their Rouge Edition Velvet lipsticks (review here), I have been on a quest to find other liquid lipsticks that can match the staying power and I have heard these lipsticks by Kat Von D, might just be that. With my wedding happening next April, I do not want the hassle of a traditional lipstick -constantly touching up or not able to properly kiss my husband in fear of leaving marks all over his face and mine (lol!).
For the last couple of months I have had to apply my foundation with my fingers, which isn’t always a bad thing, but I really am missing the niceness of being able to blend with a face brush. Basically my Real Techniques buffing brush gradually malted its way to a sorry retirement and my expert face brush, despite cleaning will just not return to its original form. Rather than replace them, I have actually seen this as an opportunity to try a new brand and I have been keen to try Sigma brushes for a while.
Do I really need to explain my desire to get my hands on the Lorac Pro palette? Think not.
I have two products from Too Faced so far (the pink leopard blushing bronzer & foundation powder) and I want more. Both of my existing products have probably come with me on my trip as although I don’t want to be without makeup, I certainly don’t need anything heavy as it’ll still be hot and for the most part I am travelling between city locations and won’t really need anything. I love this Love Flush Long Lasting Blush as collectively with the packaging, it looks beautiful.
When I asked on Twitter last week any suggestions for beauty products to try and seek out, I was advised to take a look at the value sets available in Sephora, which I did. I love the look of this collector’s set from Tarte -again another brand I have been eager to try for a long time, and the set from Origins which above anything else, looks to be fantastic value. I will definitely try to seek more of these sets out if I get the opportunity!
There will no doubt be an American Haul post coming on here soon so stay tuned and see what -if anything- I manage to bring back!
