I did some major beauty shopping on my recent trip to LA and I have already posted about my Sephora Hauls here and here. I also bought some things in the drugstores, Nordstrom, MAC and at the airport, so I thought I would do a post about those purchases. The drugstores that I visited were Walgreens and CVS.
I would really like my teeth to be whiter, so before going to my dentist for professional whitening I thought I would try out some toothpaste which I believe is stronger that the products you can buy in the UK. I bought Aquafresh Extreme Clean and Rembrandt Intense Stain for $8.99.
I visited Nordstrom at The Grove and I wish I had spent more time in there as they had some amazing gift sets. I bought the hard to get in the UK Lorac Pro Palette for $42. This is a great palette with a nice mixture of matte and shimmer shades. I will definitely get so much use out of this palette.
These are my drugstore purchases. I bought a EOS Visibly Soft Lip Balm Sphere in Coconut Milk, a Maybelline Baby Lips Moisturizing Lip Gloss $4.49 and Maybelline The Falsies Push Up Drama Mascara $8.99. I love the EOS balm, it really does keep my lips moisturised. The Maybelline lip gloss gives a sheer wash of colour and is not sticky at all. The mascara immediately made my eyelashes look longer with just one coat.
I was also tempted to add to my MAC lipstick collection, so I picked up the shade Twig which I think is a wear anywhere, anytime sort of shade. I love it.
Finally, I picked up a couple of Clinique products at LAX at duty free prices. I bought Clinique Moisture Surge Face Spray and Moisture Surge Overnight Masque.
Sorry I couldn't find my receipts for all the products so I've just listed the prices of the ones I have. I will post reviews of some of the products once I've tried them.
I bought these with my own money.
