Holiday Haul - What I bought in the USA


As y'all know, I went away for the first time in a lot of years this month, and as a make-up obsessed twenty something, I acknowledged I would no doubt break the bank a little when I got to play in Sephora. I also visited a huge discount outlet mall in Florida, to pick up a new Kipling bag, an ended up in a large beauty discount shop. That was fun. Also all the Burt's Bees, cause I love their stuff and its so expensive in the UK.

So here's what I got.

Beauty Discount Shop
Urban Decay Electric Palette
Urban Decay Vice 4 Palette
Urban Decay 24/7 Velvet Eyeliner in Cult
Urban Decay All Nighter Eyeliner in Perversion

 Too Faced Passport to Bronze Travel Mini's
Caolion Blackhead 02 Sparkling Pore Soap (Travel Sized)
Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Mother
Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Project Chimps
Sephora Green Tea Face Mask
Urban Decay De-Slick Setting Spray (Travel Size)
Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray (Trave Size)
Tartist Lip Paint in Hangry
Tartist Lip Paint in TBT

Other Bits
Burt's Bee Body Wash in Grapefruit and Ginger
Alba Botanics Hawaiian Clear Spray Sunscreen x2
Burt's Bees Herbal Blemish Stick (the yellow tube without a box because I lost it)
Burt's Bees 4 Pack Lipbalm

I think the best part of the whole haul was realising that I hadn't been charged for Hangry. I wouldn't have even noticed if I hadn't dropped the Sephora bag and had some of the contents spill out. Because it was dark and I couldnt really see the ground under the table I just had to pick stuff up and check the receipt, and yeah, free lipstick. Woop woop.

Worst part. Accidentally spilling some of the All Nighter setting spray on the hotel room floor. Couldn't work out how to open it as it seemed too tight to just pull it off so I thought it was a screw cap. Its not and cause its so tight it took the spray top off with it. Oops.

Before I sign off I just want to say I do not normally spend this much money on myself and this size of haul is really rare. I was on holiday and had saved because I wanted to buy beauty products when I was out there. Alot of these products and brands are harder to get in UK (Tarte is pretty much impossible if you don't want charged Customs VAT as well) and they are all more expensive here. To put that into perspective, I got the Urban Decay Electric Palette for $23 (£17.60 GB). In the UK that palette retails for £35 ($45.60) so it was almost exactly half price.

  I also got a lot of travel sized products to try and see if I like them before purchasing a full sized one or because I know I like them but won't use a full sized one.
