Hey 🙂 how’re you all?
I know it’s a bit late to post the august haul but better late than never 😛
As I told you all in the previous post, I’m in Chicago and have shopped a bit ever since I came here. Okay, not a bit, but quite a lot 😛 I came here on 14th august, and this is all of what I bought in august as before 14th, I was too busy in packing and all to shop!
So, this is the first thing I bought –
Soap and Glory A great kisser lip balm in Juicy Peach. I bought it at London Heathrow duty free. My sister bought a lip gloss from the brand Seventeen. Heathrow duty free is amazing!!! I bought this lip balm for approx. 4 euro. I love it, it smells of fresh peaches 😛
Next on the second day in Chicago, after I had registered at my university, I went to Ulta and hauled sooo much 😛
My first thought was to buy a Real Techniques brush. I’d been hearing so much about them and I finally laid my hands on them. I bought only one as powder is what I use the most and I didn’t want to just buy all of the brushes at once 😛 so I just bought the TR powder brush for $9.25.
Then I bought the Maybelline dream bouncy blush in Candy Coral for $5.6. I’d been lusting after these cute little blushes since so long. And I was so angry when I found out that just when I left India, Maybelline launched these in India as well!!! 🙁
Next the Maybelline polka dots nail paints. These were on offer for buy 1 get 50% off on second. So I bought two of these together. Even the other shades were lovely. I bought pretty in polka and clearly spotted for $2.99 each after the discount.
Maybelline baby lips, another thing I badly wanted to try. I got the neon ones that have been newly launched. Mine is in shade electric shock, got it for $2.8.
Organix argan oil of morocco penetrating oil. This is the travel size that retails for $2.78 . This is something I just purchased randomly. I’m in love with this!!! I have never used a hair serum before and I use this one after washing on damp hair and it retains moisture in the hair very well. I really enjoy using this.
Nivea lip butter in Caramel for $2.78 . It smells so heavenly!!!!!! Aahhh I love it!!! 🙂
Maybelline color whisper in Coral Ambition for $5.25 . I love the texture of these but I’m not too fond of this particular shade. Might get another shade later.
L’Oreal gel liners in Blackest Black and Navy for $7.49 each. I was thinking of buying this black one in India as I’ve heard its great on the waterline but I didn’t and I’m glad I bought it here as its costs less. These two are amazingly buttery and smooth. Love them!
Then the Benefit stuff – both are travel sized and great if you want to try before buying the whole thing. Benefit erase paste and Benefit They’re real mascara for $10 each.
Next I went to the Victoria’s Secret store, oh my it was awesome 😀 I couldn’t decide what to buy so just bought this lip balm, Glossy lip butter in shade for $7.50 I think, don’t remember exactly.
Then, all these other things are from Target and Walmart –
Elf cream liners in Coffee and Midnight for $3 each. They’re nice 🙂
Maybelline makeup remover for $4.96 . I love the packaging!!!
Maybelline great lash mascara for $4-5. By the way, this has been launched in 4 limited edition shades – royal blue, teal, purple and pink I think. They look so amazing. And all are so affordable. I really wanted to buy the blue one but didn’t as I don’t think I’ll be able to wear it anywhere 🙁 I haven’t got any mascara with me from India so now I have the benefit one and this one! 🙂
Hard Candy fox in a box blush. Very cute blush in a box 😛 retails for $6 .
Revlon lip butter in tooti frooti for $6.48 . I wanted this shade since forever but it was a good decision to buy from here as its cheaper here.
Sinful colors nail paint for $1.99 I guess.
Bodycology body mist in for $3.97 . it smells so good!!!!
Vaseline cocoa lip balm for $4. :O so expensive but I had to have it 😛 it smells heavenly. And Vaseline body oil gel for $9 I think. They should really sell both these things in India. They’ll be best sellers 😛
Then I got this pretty watch from Forever 21 for around $20. The Forever 21 stores here are really amazing. One of the cheapest clothes and most trendy. I got a top and a skirt from there too.
Then these 3 things from my new favourite store that is Charlotte Russe 😛 its such an amazing store, similar to Forever 21 but better. The jewelry was so awesome 🙁 but I couldn’t buy anything, my sister did though, she bought the prettiest bracelet in the world !! She bought this one here. I bought this iphone cover from there- its so pretty J got it for around $8 I think and these 2 nail paints, one is for $0.99 and other for $3.50.
So ya that’s it, and by the way, before you all start saying this is so much stuff, I’ll tell you, I’ve got hardly anything with e from india! I left almost everything at home! I got no nail paints, no mascaras, no eyelash curler, only 3 brushes, a few pencil liners, all my gel liners, i.e.5 couldn’t leave them 😛 and a few lip glosses n only 1 lipstick that’s my MAC one.
So, anything you’d like me to review first? Do share your comments 🙂
