America Haul.

(L-R Elf Shimmer Palette, Maybelline Color Whisper in Mad for Magenta',
Revlon Lip Butter in Juicy Papaya, Garnier Fructis Hydra recharge,
Bath&Body Works candles in Leaves and Frosted Cupcake, Hand Sanitizer in Japense
Cherry Blossom, Dove Body Wash, Victorias Secret Spray.)
Sooooo, my friend Trina (twitter stalk her here) is just back from New York after spending the whole Summer there. She's been gone since May. She's my shopping partner. It's been hard. However, I shopped vicariously through her. I sat through many skype sessions where she showed me all the freaking bargains she was getting over there. 50% off 'Revlon' foundations. Cheap as chips nail polishes. 75% off some brands. I did ask her to pick me up a few things, which my mum fabulously paid for. I was conscious of not getting things that were out here. I mean, what's the point of that? I did have 'Baby Lips' on there but then they suddenly decided to launch here so were no longer needed. I've been eyeing up the 'Color Whispers' by 'Maybelline' ever since they launched in the US. They reminded me of the 'Revlon' lip butters which I'm obsessed with so I needed one of those. I didn't really have a particular shade in mind so Trina picked me up the shade 'Mad for Magenta' which is this gorgeous purple/pink shade, can't wait to try it out.

The 'Elf Shimmer Palette', 'Revlon Lip Butter in Juicy Papaya', Victorias Secret Spray and 'Bath and Body Works Leaves candle' and hand sanitizer were early birthday presents from Trina. She's such a star. I was only tweeting about the lip butter the other week, but she's quite the stalker ;) I'm obsessed with the 'Leaves' candle. Elle Fowler raves about it every autumn and I didn't think it would be in store by the time she left New York but she found it and surprised me. I cheated with the 'Dove' body wash. I bought that in 'Boots' today for 1.49€. Trina made me buy it. She'd gotten it while she was in America for herself so it counts okay. I can't wait to get reviewing all of these for you guys. Can't use anything till I take pics though. Talk about your blogger problems. Also, if any of you are going to the 'OohLaLa' blog awards Tuesday, tweet me and let me know. I'm so excited. Can't believe I'm a finalist in the beauty category. Currently counting down the hours.

Oh wow, you're so lucky to have had a friend visit the states and get you everything we don't have yet, I'm quite jealous!
Would love to see a review on the 'Color Whispers'! xx

I have literally never tried one of those products...and I live here! Well I guess technically the lip butters, but not that shade. I can't wait for the review because I love drugstore products. They are so cheap!

I went a little mad in B&BW when I was in America. They have such a huge range it took me ages to decide what to buy. I wish I'd bought a few candles now as I always hear such amazing things about them

A little in love with the Bath & Body Works stuff! Lovely haul, it's so nice to be able to get things that you can't just walk into a shop here and buy x
