America Wish List!

Hi girls! So while I'm away in America, I am obviously going to do a bit of shopping! Yay! So I thought I would compile a list of the things I am hoping to pick up!

Now I cannot wait to get into Sephora! As obviously we don't have them here in the UK. Well I have recently spotted some Benefit Sephora exclusives and just cannot wait to get my hands one them! 

1. Benefit Bronze Of Champions Kit, $32 and contains Hoola bronzer and Hoola lip gloss, both of which I have wanted to try for ages! Also it contains Watts up, a highlighter which again I have been wanting to try! It also contains a couple of other things too and I think it is great for the price!

2. Benefit Worlds Most Famous Neutrals Kit in Most Glamourous Nudes Ever, $30, which contains four eye shadows and two cream eye shadows! I love Benefit eye shadows and I don't think they get enough credit here in the Blog world. I cannot wait to get my hands on this!!

3. I also want to pick up a Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush, which I have heard so much about! I have no idea what colour to pick up, but obviously I will know what colour to get when I swatch them! They are $26, but I have heard such amazing things about these that I am just despearte to try them!
This is the colour Charisma.

4. I would love to pick up a Korres Lip Butter, $12 and again I have heard loads about these!

5. I would love to pick up MAC's Mineralize Skin Finish in Soft and Gentle, $30 while away and I have found a MAC store right along the road from my hotel in San Diego which is awesome! So I should hopefully be nipping in there to pick it up! I also save over £2.00 than if I was to buy it in the UK! Hehe.

Now onto drugstore brands!

6. I have got to get my hands on at least one Maybelline Baby Lips! I have been wanting to try ones since I first heard about them well over 9 months ago! Not sure which flavour I will get, I will have to see when I get there!

7. I also am desperate to buy some Wet n Wild eye shadows, which are said to be of great quality and are really cheap!!

8. Lastly with the make up front, I would love to try NYX lip glosses, especially in Beige (thanks Miss Glamourazzi!) and also would love to try a blush from their range too, not sure of the colour again. I will need to find an Ulta store to get them though, I think there is one in Hollywood that I am going to try and find, so wish me luck!

Other than beauty products I have a few things I would love to buy and then some shops I would like a look in too! In San Francisco, I can't wait to go into the Levi's store and get a pair of jeans! Also I really want to have a look in Abercrombie & Fitch and then also Victoria's Secret too! I can't wait to get some things at Disneyland Resort! I will probably get a tshirt and some other memorabilia. Also I think we will be buying our nephew a few things here too!! I would absolutely love to buy a pair of sun glasses when in Duty free, I'm thinking maybe Ray Bans?!  All my other cheapy sunglasses are just such rubbish quality, so I would love a good pair which will last a few years! But we shall just have to wait and see!! I am just so excited to be there! I have to say though, that I am not just going to be shopping when I am there... obviously! I am going to be doing so much, that I am worried when I will be getting the time to shop!! Hehe!

If you think of any shops that I might like while I am over in California and Nevada, then please let me know! I would love some other ideas!!

Love, Jen x

  2. Hi Jen!
    I have used the Benefit Hoola bronzer, Watts up highlighter and They're real mascara and I can not speak more highly of them!!! I love the brinzer, in my opinion it is the perfect matte bronzer for me. I use the Watts up highlighter daily! I like to team it with benefit's georgia (which is discontinued but always check ebay!) or coralista. And the mascara, It really does wonders for my eyelashes and it is said to be like the number one best selling mascara in the UK.

    Hope you have fun in the States!!! I loved San Francisco when I went and I think there is a pier called pier 39 that I really enjoyed! And I am so jealous of you going to Disney!!
