USA Beauty Haul

 EOS Lipbalms in Strawberry Sorbet & Raspberry Pomegranite

I’ve wanted to try EOS Lipbalms for ages and I picked up the Vanilla Mint scented one back home at Urban Outfitters for £6.50, but at Target these were just $1.99 (£1.27)!

EOS Cherry Blossom Hand Cream

I couldn’t help pick this up as it was equally cheap and the scent sounded divine.

  Pixi Shea Butter Lip Balm in Honey Nectar 

I got the Ripe Raspberry one of these in my Birchbox last year and I absolutely loved it so when I saw the Pixi stand in Target, I had to grab one.

Pixi H2O Skintint 

I’ve quit foundation but I wanted something to use on a bad skin day. This lightweight gel is designed to even out skin tone without covering freckles or appearing like makeup.

 CoverGirl Full Lash Bloom Mascara 

My go-to Benefit mascara (They’re Real) has run dry and this stuff was 1/3 of the price. I got it in dark brown and I must say, it’s a great dupe for the benefit one. The brush is identical and the formula is only slightly thinner.

CoverGirl Clean Oil Control Powder

I figured since the weather here is so so hot (due for 36 degrees over the weekend) that having a powder to blot away excess shine would be a good idea. This powder is designed for sensitive, spot prone skin.

ELF Stipple Brush & Powder Brush

Having not brought my brush collection with me since I don’t really need them on holiday, I picked up the first for $3 and the second for $2!

 Victoria’s Secret Love Spell Body Spray

This fruity fragrance has a quality element to it but comes with just a $14 price tag. It’s one of those products I’ve read blog posts about and never bothered to pick up until now. This scent is one of the best sellers from their body spray range and has notes of jasmine, cherry blossom and peach. Yum.

Maybelline Camouflage Concealer

Reminds me very much of the MAC Pro-long wear concealer, gives perfect coverage without the cakey look. Pretty sure I won’t be able to repurchase this in the UK sadly.

Benefit Porefessional 

Benefit are so damn hit and miss for me but I love this. It really smoothed your skin out and works as a great alternative to wearing foundation. I’m glad I found a sample size bottle in Sephora for $10 instead of committing straight away though. I wish we had those in the UK!

 Essie Nailpolish in Ladylike

My better half is rather fond of the nude nail colours (the little fashionista) so when I saw this beautiful shade for 8 Canadian dollars I had to go for it.

Smashbox Matte Lipstick in Mauve

I was trying to find a nice dusty pink nude lipstick to match said Nailpolish and my friend January (who I’m staying with) found this lovely matte shade in the Smashbox stand at Sephora. We didn’t match the polish well but the lipstick is such a gorgeous colour!
