My USA Diwali Haul :)


Post By Sahana, 

Hi gals! The last 3 months that I was in USA I drooled over the cosmetics only in Pharmacy stores (CVS) or other household items stores (Walmart, Winn Dixie etc) as I had no time to actually check out malls and had been preoccupied with settling in and knowing the places.

Today finally decided to check out one of the well known malls here and ended up in Oaks mall where I got a lot of goodies 🙂 I got them all as my hubby’s Diwali gift to me 🙂

Here are the pictures of my haul and I will start reviewing them soon!

US A haul

The eye brow kit is a amazingly pigmented one with 2 brushes (one for brushing the eyebrows into position and the other to effectively apply the colour ). I was confused between 2 kits as they had different colours and dear hubby said to buy them both. He he. The cost of each of them was $4.

The main reason for getting the brow kit was now I have started shaping my brow myself with a eyebrow shaper/trimmer which I got for $7 (saves me spending $12 everytime I need to get my threading done plus no need to wait for a parlour appointment, take time out to travel to the parlour etc).

  EYE BROW KIT   Next comes the Sephora lip gloss set which has 6 delicious shades! Each one more amazing than the other all for $5.   Sephora lip gloss     I also got 3 retractable eye liners (greyish black, jet black and brown) for a total of $10 as I can use them for my daily wear(most of my favourite eyeliners are blue, purple, green, teal, etc which I can’t wear to my work/study place ).   3 retractable eye liners     I got 15 hair accessories (crocodile clips) for $2 and Loreal color riche tinted lip balm for $5.67.   15 hair accessories (crocodile clips)     There were much more temptations but I went for the ones which I was sure would suit me. The SA told me “It is great to have someone so full of smiles in our store” and grabbed a fistful of sample products and put it into my products bag :)I saw later on that they were 2 packets of age defying serum, 2 packets of sunscreen, one foundation primer and one awesome rose perfume sample. I also got a free member ship card and 19 points on it for my purchase and I saw other women getting make up kits and stuff as gift for their minor points!! I am going to be a regular at this shop I guess. 😛   pink lip gloss   Do check out the haul and I will start with the reviews soon!   You might like reading these also:-

Luminous pink pepper with a deeply voluptuous bouquet of tuberose and a whisper of a creamy sandalwood. Radiant Glamour. Undeniably feminine.

  4. Hey that was a very useful article for me. Ever since I came to the US, I see cosmetics on sale or lesser prices but have always been unsure about them. will get soon. I’d love to see reviews of all them too.

    And you bet about the samples we get here. I recently got a small pouch full of samples from Target. 🙂

    • Thats super cool Jazz! Its safer to get the cheaper and on sale cosmetics from major and well known stores. That way there is no chance of getting stuck with inferior quality goods 🙂

      Ya the samples are simply superb na 🙂 This perfume is heavenly and lingers for hours (almost the whole day) with a half drop application 🙂
