US Haul.. Kind of.


I feel like calling this a 'US Haul' is cheating in a way because I haven't actually been to the US since last year. Instead, the boy went to Target for me with a list of things I gave him and then mailed them over to me.

A couple of these things are actually gifts for people (which is why there are so many lip balms). I actually asked him to pick up another Dream Bouncy Blush for me too but when I received it, it had been opened so I don't think I'm going to use it and for that reason, didn't include it in the picture. We can't get the twisty stick version of the cherry Carmex in the UK, so I asked him to get some of those for me and he told me that these only cost $1, that's around 62p! 

EOS lip balms in sweet mint and lemon drop
CoverGirl lash blast volume mascara
Maybelline dream bouncy blush in coffee cake
Carmex cherry lip balm
Maybelline Baby lips in cherry me, quenched and pink punch
Sonia Kashuk hidden agenda concealer palette 
EOS Alice in Wonderland trio

What would be the first products you would grab from America?

    I have never been to the US but I think I'd be all over Bath and Body Works shower gels! xx

    1. I SO wish we had Bath and Body Works here. It's a little overwhelming in there because there's just so much choice but it's amazing!

    1. I would be the same in BBW now. I have a Cherry blossom scented body spray which I love and trying to use sparingly so it doesn't run out too quick. I only have one use pretty much left of the body lotion too!

    1. I asked him to look in Target for me and he said they didn't have them but then I think he realised how badly I wanted it and called them to asked if they had any out the back and they did! I think they only had one too, so they put it to one side for him to go pick up :)

  5. I went to america about six months before I got into beauty blogging and was completely gutted later on that there were so many things I could have picked up. On my US wishlist is Physicians Formula Happy Booster, loads of Sephora products and definitely the famous EOS lip balms :) Great haul x

    1. Oh boy, I would be exactly the same. I kind of am about OPI/Essie polishes because at the time I thought $8.50 was a lot for nail polish but when I realise how much cheaper it makes them compared to what they're sold for here, I should have picked more up!

  6. If I went to America I would buy an EOS lipbalm and some Nyx products.

    Have a beautiful night

    1. I originally wanted to try them because I had heard so much about them and thought they were different looking.. Then when I used them I really liked them. They do a strawberry one which is really nice and I love the mint one too.

    1. Two of the EOS and the Carmex aren't for me. When he got the stuff for me I was like 'Wow, this is pretty much all lip balm' haha

  9. great haul :)
    I'm from Canada, so if I were to go to the States, I would just take advantage of their much lower beauty prices!

    1. Yeah, I know what you mean! Like, we can get the EOS balms here (online) but they end up being a lot more expensive.

    1. I haven't tried the passion fruit, tangerine or honeysuckle/honey dew ones. I don't like melon flavoured things so I'm not worried about that one. I really like them too but they're a bit annoying to store/carry around with you because they're so bulky!

  17. I'm going to america next year and honestly dont know of anything to get there yet I always here beauty blogger say how amazing things are - will have to look out for some of the above

    1. I find when I'm there I feel like I don't really see anything but I think maybe I just get a bit overwhelmed because I'm always hearing people talk about products and think how I want to try them. I'm sure you will find lots of things you want though once you get there! I found the nail polishes over there to be really good value, I wish I took more advantage of that!

    1. I'm surprised that they're still not being sold here, I had a feeling they might be but there's no sign of them.. I've been using the one in 'quenched' and don't like the scent of it too much but I like the cherry one :)

  26. The best place to learn mandarin Chinese is in China. However, we understand that it isn't always possible to move here to study Chinese language. The next best thing is to study with our experienced teachers in a virtual classroom. Online students enjoy the same excellent way of mandarin Chinese online lessons and custom designed courseware that we provide for our face to face clients.
