USA Beauty Shopping

When I’m at home in my own city there is nothing I loathe more than spending a full day at the shops looking for beauty products. I LOVE shopping for beauty products but I find it most enjoyable when I’m in a foreign city. I adore shopping in the USA because of the huge selection available, the lower price points and the sales assistants who actually help you (yes, that’s rare in Australia).

I’ve just returned from a business trip in the USA and many of you have been nagging me to share my haul. I’m going to start with my beauty haul because it’s the largest (of course!).

The new line was launched just this month and while we did hear rumblings that the mega retailer would be looking to launch new nail offerings we still found this to be a well kept secret right up until it went on sale. The collection is massive, currently including over 200 items, and features everything from classic cremes to 3D appliqués.

The Collection

The collection is broken down into multiple sub-categories and each contain a variety of hues:  Continue Reading

someecards.com - They see us hauling .... They hatin'

Remember yesterday when I said I am overworked and my brain needs a rest? Well here is the evidence I needed because I just remembered I didn’t tell you about the fabulous new products I picked up at the Sydney International Spa & Beauty Expo in August. The good news is that all my purchases are now available for you to buy as well so I guess that worked out well.

Shall we see what I added to my collection? HINT: I really need to avoid nail polish stalls. Continue Reading
