My US beauty haul

Happy Sunday!! Today I have my US beauty haul that I wanted to share with you. It has taken me a while to snap photos of the makeup I purchased in the US, I’m still suffering from post holiday blues. Prior to my trip, I didn’t buy any makeup for months and months because I knew I could get them heaps cheaper overseas. I purchased half of my makeup stash online when Sephora had their 20% off VIB sale and got them sent directly to my in laws place. Considering how cheap the makeup in the US are and another 20% off, I think I got a pretty good deal.

The first thing we did when we got off the plane was raid Target for a SIM card but it just so happened a bunch of EOS lip balms were waiting for me there so I snagged a few. I loved Target so much, we stopped by another 5-6 times, not just for beauty stuff but for Flaming Hot Cheetos and Gold-Fish biscuits.

A few items (Chanel & Dior) were purchased at duty-free at the airport. It was quite a good deal especially when their price is lower than stores outside and you don’t have to pay the 9% tax.

One thing I really wanted to buy but didn’t, was the Em Cosmetic Life Palette. I put in an order twice but both times got rejected so I gave up. I thought if they didn’t want to take my money, I’ll use it else where.

I hope you enjoyed the haul and let me know if there is a particular product you want me to review first otherwise I’ll randomly choose. Enjoy the rest of the weekend!!

Everything in this post was purchased by me.


EOS Holiday Collection Instagram Giveaway!

Hi Everyone!! I’m back home! For those who don’t know, I have been in the US and Canada for the last three weeks. We did so much shopping, it was unbelievable. We started off with 2 suitcases (semi empty) and came back with 4 super full suitcases.

I’ve been wanting to hold a small giveaway on instagram for a while now but couldn’t decide on what to giveaway. When I was in LA, I was walking around Target looking at makeup and happened to stumble across the EOS Holiday Collection.
