Sadly, I did not purchase as many beauty items as I had hoped/expected but I'm sure you're still keen to see what handful of products did I manage to grab.
In terms of makeup, this is what I bought: Duo eyelash adhesive, Stila Convertible in Lilium, UD eyeshadow in Bordello, UD Eyeshadow Primer Potion, MAC eyeshadow palette that I built myself (Brown Down, Naked Lunch, Sable and Satin Taupe) and a MAC 219 brush (it's brown at the tip because I've already started using it). I am in love with my Stila Convertible. I will be doing a swatch and review soon so keep an eye out!
As for skincare, I only got myself one product: La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo. I can tell you now that this is the best acne treatment I have tried so far. Review to come! I was going to buy myself a La Mer Moisturising Cream while I was there. Then, my mum revealed that she has an unopened jar that I can have so I didn't.
As for nail polish, I had initially intended to buy quite a lot of OPI from the US. However, we never managed to find a store that stocked a big selection. I know Sephora has their own version/collection of OPI but I wanted the originals. No big loss because I already have 20 over nail polishes that I hardly use. So all I got were these two: Essie Good As Gold and Sally Hansen Crackle Overcoat in 09 Wave Break.
Lastly, I also picked up a copy of Allure Magazine. It was for only $4! I couldn't resist. Plus, Keira Knightley looks smoking hot in this issue.
Before I finish up this post, here are some of my favourite photos from the trip.
