USA haul #2 – I’m back! ;)

I can’t believe it’s been more than a month since I’ve last posted, how time flies! Meanwhile I got my wish come true, I went to USA for almost two weeks on a business trip and luckily we’ve had some spare time to go around sightseeing and shopping =)) I’ve got a smart phone now so I finally created an Instagram account (username ColorfulHarmony) but I haven’t actually tried taking a picture yet… :blush:

Anyway, I was amazed to see Sephora in NYC, they did my make up and I bought two quite expensive products because I liked them on me a lot, a Stila primer and a Make Up For Ever liquid foundation. Then I hit every drug store I had time to go to and boy did I have stuff to see and to buy!! =)))))) My friends of course teased me but I don’t care ;)) Here is a picture heavy post of my second USA haul! ;)

Here are some Elf, Wet’n’Wild and Hard Candy stuff:

I forgot to include my new Covergirl mascara, I took this photo before I opened it:

Some more Elf =) I bought the first Chap Stick (Cherry) on a gas station and I loved it immediately so I bought some more at the mall… I loved the Q-tips packaging so that had to be mine as well =P

Here are the Sephora goods and some other make up… btw, everything is cheaper there, the Revlon lip butter cost me 6,5$ which is what, 5€? Here in Slovenia it’s around 10€…

Aaaaand here are the polishes =)) The first ones I bought in Forever 21 store =)))

OPI polishes cost 8,5$ which is somewhere 6,5€, here they cost 13€ per bottle!!! I finally indulged in Liquid sand OPI without feeling guilty… ^ ^ Nicole by OPI was cheaper, 6,5$.

Pure Ice beauties and Mattése Elite polishes:

I tried it on my nail wheel but it actually doesn’t impress as much when it’s applied, it’s matte duller (not that neon) green with glitter (maybe you have to use up one color at a time?), the smell is nice at first but then it’s like smelling a perfume gone bad, it has an additional “gonebad” smell… I don’t know, I’ll have to try it for real I guess, the bottle looks amazing though =)

I bought some of the products in pairs for an eventual giveaway and I might give away some of my stuff as well, in the end I see that it all might be a little bit too much for me… =P First I have to learn how to do it with the Rafflecopter and that, I’m not there yet… ;)

All in all I loved the experience of USA, loved the sightseeing and shopping, but it’s true it’s always nice to come back home – I do hope to go back one day soon though… ;)

Hope you liked this post, be sure to see some of this stuff in my upcoming manicures! =)

  2. Tole pa je haul! Komaj čakam swatche in podobno, boš pol leta rabila da vse preizkusiš :D Tele Revlonovi twin laki so v živo še lepši kot na slikah, samo dvomim da jih bomo pri nas dobili :/ Tale Claire's bo pa, če ne drugega, lepo na polici izgledal, ful je zanimiv :D

    1. Ja, sej to, zato pa si mislim, da je mogoče res malo preveč... =P Ne razumem, zakaj ne moremo dobivat istih stvari od istih firm, ki prodajajo tudi pri nas. Loreal al pa Maybelline stojalo sta bla popolnoma drugačna, kot pri nas. Sej že v Nemčiji je čist drugo =/

  3. Waw, zelo lepe stvari si kupila! To mora biti krasen občutek, ko dejansko v živo vidiš stvari, ki jih pri nas enostavno ni. Jaz bi verjetno imela težave s tem, kaj izbrati (ker bi hotela kar vse). Hehe

  4. O bog, moja usta so do poda ... Same dobrote, se kar ne morem nagledati fotk. Amerika je res raj za ljubitelje kozmetike. Ne vem, zakaj morajo biti laki pri nas toliko dražji kot tam. Ah, Revlonovi dvojčki, prav rada bi kakega imela, na fotkah izgledata oba prekrasno. A si že kaj preizkusila (čeprav verjamem, da si)? :D

    1. V bistvu so moji nohti precej bogi zdaj, nisem jih mela časa prav negovat =/ Preden sem šla, sem si jih čisto skrajšala, ker so mi začeli pokat in se plastit =( V Sephori sem si jih nalakirala z bleščičastim Butter London lakom in imela potem to 12 dni na rokah. Za kupit mi je bil predrag (15$), sem pa našla exact dupe od Sally Hansen za 2,5$ (na eni gornjih slik je prvi v prvi vrsti). Ko sem se vrnila, sem najprej sprobala Forever 21 drugega v prvi vrsti, čudovit duochrome (teal, ki se blešči rozasto). Moram si malo ojačat nohte spet, potem bom pa še kaj poslikala in objavila =) Hvala za komentar! =)
