Wow okay, it's been a long time since I posted anything on here. The last few weeks of college were full of assignments and studying and then exams came and went and my trip to New York was what was getting me through it all!
I went to New York for five days with my best friend Kayleigh and had the most amazing time! We got to see all the sites, see a baseball game and of course, did all the shopping!
Since I bought so much, I'll be breaking my haul into two parts, so this one will be all of the stuff I bought from Bath & Body Works, Ulta Beauty and Apple
Bath & Body Works
Black Cherry Merlot 3-Wick
Okay so I went to Bath & Body Works for the candles, I am obsessed. My mum brought me one home from the States almost two years ago and I wouldn't burn it completely until I had gotten some more!
I usually go for sickly sweet scents, I love them so much. That's why I was surprised that I loved this candle so much. It's not overly sweet (I think it's the Merlot?) and it's a candle you could put into your sitting room that everyone would love.
This candle even got my bag searched at JFK which I thought was gas, who knew candles were what smugglers were using!
Watermelon Lemonade 3-Wick
The second candle I got was Watermelon Lemonade and I love it! I love everything watermelon so I knew I was walking out of there with something watermelon scented.
This candle isn't too sweet or overpowering so I will definitely be using this when I'm studying!
Sparkling Limoncello Hand Lotion
I'm trying to use hand lotion more often and this one just smelt so nice I had to buy it! Lemon is such a fresh scent and I cannot wait to use it!
Watermelon Lemonade Foaming Soap
This soap smells just like the candle so of course, I had to buy it. I don't know when I'm going to use it though because I'm going away in a week and a half and I won't be packing soap with me!
Island Margarita Cleansing Soap
I love citrus-scented things so when I tried this soap, I just had to have it too! There's aloe and vitamin e in this soap which helps to keep hands soft.
Lemon Grapefruit Foaming Soap
This soap smells so nice as well! Lemon is definitely the most fragrant in the soap and I love it. The vitamins a. b and e aim to keep your hands smooth.
Formula 10.0.6 Be Berry Fresh Mud Mask
I saw the Formula 10.0.6 range in Ulta and I just had to try some of it out! This mask is aimed at detoxing pores and I love neroli (one of the main ingredients) so I'm looking forward to trying it out!
Formula 10.0.6 So Totally Clean Cleanser
So I don't have acne but I do like the effect salicylic acid has had on my skin in the past. It's aimed at clearing blackheads and whiteheads so I'm looking forward to incorporating it into my skincare routine.
Physicians Formula The Healthy Foundation
I honestly don't know why I bought this foundation because I have so many to get through but I can't buy it over here so I decided to try it out! The Healthy Foundation is a new foundation from the brand that has buildable medium to full coverage with a satin finish.
I went for LC1 because I'm pale and usually go for foundations with a cool undertone. The range has sixteen shades so if you can't find one that suits you, you can always mix!
Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer
I couldn't go to the stand and not pick up a Butter Bronzer! Every single American Youtuber or blogger I follow has raved about this bronzer so I'm glad I finally get to try it out for myself!
I picked it up in the shade Bronzer.
Tarte Shape Tape Concealer Fair Beige
So last summer my sister picked up this concealer in fair and while she did let me try it out, it was too pale for me! I swatched a load of the concealers when I was in the store and found fair beige was the best match for me.
This concealer is exclusive to Ulta Beauty and is amazing for covering up dark circles!
Tartelette Toasted Palette
Okay so I know I have an abundance of palettes but all of the Tartelette palettes were on sale and I couldn't resist! I am a warm tone and metallic queen so this palette was right up my alley.
This palette has seven mattes and five shimmer shades and the formula is just so creamy! I cannot wait to use this palette over the next few months (It's definitely coming to Portugal with me)!
L'Oréal Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation 101 Classic Ivory
I don't know if there's a difference between the infallible matte you can get here and the infallible pro-matte I got in New York but the shade range is so much better over there!
I got a very pale shade that I can't buy at home but is perfect for my skin tone and I can darken it if needed over the summer. I really do love the foundation, the coverage and finish is just fantastic.
Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip Fresh Cut
I love Colourpop and the fact that some stores stock it now is fantastic! I saw the little stand at a store in the city and I couldn't resist!
I love Colourpop's matte lipstick and Fresh Cut is described as a true blue pink. I wanted a pale pink to wear for the summer and I think this is so cute!
Colourpop Super Shock Highlighter Flexitarian
I love a good highlight and always dip into my sister's flexitarian so I decided it was time I bought my own! It's described as an intense white champagne with pearlized finish. I think it looks so nice with a barely there look or with fake tan.
Laura Geller Baked Gelato Swirl Illuminator Peach Glow
I clearly have a thing for glowy looks. I picked this up in Ulta Beauty because it was on sale and it was just so nice when I swatched it!
L'Oréal Makeup Bag
I spent so much in the store that I got this holographic makeup bag as well. It's quite big and I'll definitely be bringing it away with me to Portugal!
I also bought a new phone while I was in New York! My old phone didn't work properly and I'm so happy that I can finally make calls again!
