The New York City Shopping List


I'm sure by now that if you're a regular reader of my blog that you are sick of hearing about my trip to  New York. For that, I'm sorry. I'm just so, ridiculously, over excited. I've been planning every little detail for about six months now, even down to my shopping list which I want to share with you this week.

Kat Von D - Studded Lipsticks

My boyfriend's sister picked me up the Tattoo Liner from the Kat Von D range when she was in the states last February and I fell in love (honestly my favourite liquid liner ever, I talked about it here). Kat Von D also do a beautiful range of berry lip shades in Sephora which I'm just dying to try. From the website, I like the look of BAUHAU5, Cathedral and Prayer.

Becca - Shimmering Skin Perfector

As far as I'm aware, Becca isn't a brand that is easy to get hold of in the UK but I've heard so many amazing things about the highlighters that this is a must buy. I have my eye on either Opal or Champagne Pop but I won't be surprised if I come away with a different shade because all of the swatches I've studied are all so beautiful!

Anastasia - Dip Brow Pomade

Over the past 18 months, I've really fallen in love with enhancing my natural brow and I've wanted to try the Anastasia products for so, so long. They are available online in the UK but I've never had much luck purchasing products for my eyebrows online, I just never get the colour as nice as when I purchase in store. I'm pretty sure that I'll pick up the Brow Wiz and #12 Brow Brush too, going crazy for them brows!

Eyeshadow Palettes

I've left this one fairly open, I will come home with a palette but which one remains a mystery. I'd really like to grab the NARSissist palette or the Lorac Pro palette, but they're both so elusive and difficult to get hold of so I don't hold out much hope for those. I'd be tempted to pick up Isolde Duo by NARS too, or maybe the Sonia Kashuk Neutral Shimmer palette. I've also had my eye on the Bobbi Brown Nude on Nude Palette. AHH, there's just too many to choose from.

Sephora - Pro Stippling Brush

Probably my favourite bit about perusing the Sephora website at the moment is drooling over their makeup brushes. They have such a good reputation and I love the idea of them having a longer handle, I prefer that when painting a picture so can imagine it would be a great asset for a make-up brush too.

That's it for now, my actual shopping list is much longer but the rest is for another time. If you have any recommendations of what I should pick up whilst I'm out there, please let me know. Or if you have any idea's about places to eat or things to see, then I'm all open for suggestions.

Love always,
Melissa
