New York Shopping List Ideas Request!


So a few days ago I booked a flight to go visit a friend who is working in New York for a bit, and I leave on Saturday.  I'll be staying in near Times Square and needless to say I am BEYOND excited as it will be my first time visiting! Squeeee!!!

Rather than rock up and go on a crazy beauty shopping spree buying loads of random stuff I probably won't use, I thought it would be a good idea to put a little list together, so I've been trawling through Sephora's  website and watching lots of American YouTubers!  I love Ulta, but there doesn't look to be a store within a decent distance, so that's a little disappointing.  I'm hoping to make a pilgrimage to Woodbury Common, a massive discount outlet place, a bit like Bicester Village, but so much better.  I'm on the lookout for some Ugg boots and possibly a swanky handbag, but I am a little scared of panic buying so my friend will have to hold me back!

So here's my list so far.  I definitely won't be picking up everything on the list, and I probably wouldn't find all of it anyway, but I'd really appreciate if you guys have any more suggestions for me.  I'm really looking out for products you can't get in the UK, or which are massively cheaper in the US.


 Benefit-The Pretty Committee set, They're Real, Cha Cha Tint & Hervana
Too Faced In Your Dream Make Up Collection 
Real Techniques stippling brush 
Mario Badescu Drying Lotion
MUFE HD foundation
Dior Amber/Rose Diamond
Chanel Blush de Horizon
NARS - Danmari Palette (probably sold out!), Deep Throat blush, Angelika/Laguna Duo
Sephora face brush (I love these $5 little things and my current one needs replacing until I get a Clarisonic)
Clinique All About Eyes eyecream
Aquolina Pink Sugar perfume
Abercrombie - No8 perfume
Some Victoria's Secret bits

Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush: pink frosting, rose petal, fresh pink
Maybelline Eye Studio Master Drama Eyeliner
Maybelline Eye Studio Colour Tattoo 24Hr
Wet N Wild color icon eyeshadow palettes
Maybelline Lash Stiletto
Revlon Colourburst Lip Butters 
Monistat anti chafing gel (don't laugh! I've heard it works well as a primer for oily skin!)
Beauty Blender
Crest Whitestrips
Tangle Teezer
Milani Liquif'eye 
Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque 

There's also a few MAC bits I want to pick up, but I am working out whether it's cheaper to pick them up in duty free at T5 or get them Stateside.

Bloomingdales better get ready! Please let me have your suggestions below! Or is there anything my list which you wouldn't recommend? Thankyouplease! x

  1. So jealous! But if you're going to USA I would rather buy things you can't really get over here. I'd probably still visit MAC though.. ;)
    I don't know about you, but I really want to try Tarte clay amazonian blushes! Covergirl mascara I've heard good things about, and I've tried the WnW eyeshadows and they're really pigmented! Also, a colleague of mine sprayed one of the Victoria Secrets body sprays not long ago, and I'm still craving a bottle of my own! They have loads of nice fragranced stuff, so get some of those aswell!
    I feel like I'm living my make up wish list through you haha
    Have fun! I look forward to seeing your haul :) x

    1. Hi Natalie, thanks so much for all the info, will deffo try out the Tarte blushes now! I'm a huge VS fan so that's always a must do! I will make sure to do a little haul on anything I manage to score! x

  2. There is an Ulta located in Queens New York. I was recently opened. Hope you have a safe journey and you enjoy your stay in New York!!

    1. Ahh, thanks JoJo, I'm going to do my best to get to it! x

  3. I would also get Amazonian Clay Blushes. I already own two and the third is on it's way! They have a great staying power! :)

  4. Ooohhh! Grab me a face brush from Sephora please! The one I have has long bristles and I prefer the Sephora one. x

    1. I second the recommendation of the Wet N Wild eyeshadows. The Sephora Double Ended Every Day Eye Shader/Smudger brush is also lovely and functional. You should also check out the Inglot store in Times Square, it's awesome. Benefit Hoola is an amazing matte bronzer. The Sephora Mineral Foundation brush is also lovely. Have a great trip!

  6. It has nothing to do with beauty and you may already have one, but you should get a I <3 NEW YORK t shirt, i love mine and its great for laying around in or for bed x
    Hope you have a fantastic time, safe travels x

  7. I'm so excited for the Revlon lip butters to launch in the next few weeks, hope they don't sell out straight away!
    I personally don't think you need to get the beautyblender, the price is ridiculous. The Cosmopolitan one is only £5 and I've seen lots of reviews that say it is better.

  8. My tip would be is go in to lots of different Sephoras as they all stock different bits :) x

  9. I enjoyed it, thanks for posting it, I hope this post of yours will be more appreciated by it really excellent. I do not feel sorry for taking the time to read this post, it is really nice and useful to me, thanks for posting it.
