New York City haul // beauty

Hey guys, so if you follow my Instagram then you will know that I recently visited the big apple (aka New York City)! It was an absolutely amazing experience and I will be doing some posts soon sharing with you what I did whilst I was there. 

So first of all, I had to go to bath and body works!! They had a 3 for $10 deal on the mini body sprays, so I obviously had to dive straight in!! I bought them in the scents 'lush pink', 'Japanese cherry blossom', and 'warm vanilla sugar'. 

Also from bath and body works, the pocketbac hand gels were 5 for $5, so I obviously bought 5. I bought them in the scents 'cupcake sweetie', 'carribean sweetie', 'vanilla berry sorbet' and 'watermelon lemonade'. 

Next I went to a drugstore, and picked up an EOS in the flavour 'summer sorbet'.  This was around $4.99 which I believe is quite good as they are around £6 in selfridges. 

Also from the drugstore I picked up the 'real techniques core collection kit'. This was around $19, so I saved around £10 as these are £21.99 in england! 

Finally, I had to go into a mac. There were macs everywhere so this was great! I'd never bought anything from Mac before, so I thought I would try a few products whilst being in America, as I could save a bit of money buying it out there.

First of all I picked up the 'Mac Pro long wear foundation'. This was around $32 I think, so I saved about £4. When I was in this shop buying this, I wasn't sure which colour would suit my skin the best, so I asked one of the ladies working there, and she chose a colour and put it on my skin to see if it would suit it. 

Next also from Mac, I picked up the 'eye brows' product. I think that's what it's called?! Whilst buying this I also asked one of the ladies which colour would suit me, and she chose lingering, and it is a great match for my eye brows. I've been using this every day since I bought it! I think it was around $16 so I saved about £3. 

Finally from Mac, I picked up two lipsticks. The first one in the shade 'brave'. I think this is one if the more popular Mac lipsticks, and I can certainly see why. It's a beautiful dark brownish nude shade. This  is a satin lipstick, so it is quite dry. These were $16 each, so I made a huge saving here as they're £15.50 in England. 

The next Mac lipstick I picked up was 'ramblin rose'. I don't think this is a very popular Mac lipstick, well I've never heard many people mention it. But after my research I realised this was a beautiful colour that I had to pick up. It's a lovely rose gold shimmer colour, and it is a frost lipstick. It doesn't last very long on the lips though which is a downside, but it's a beautiful colour. 

I hope you enjoyed this post! I will be doing another haul soon on some other random & fashion bits I picked up in America.
