What I bought in America (make up & nail polishes)

As promised yesterday, today I’m going to show you what I purchased in America (make up and nail polishes only). Let’s move straight to the photos.

Quick thoughts on the things that I bought.

Blushes:
My favorite is probably the Bobbi Brown one, because it’s nicely pigmented, the color is adorable and it’s a very good cream blush. I also love the Illamasqua Ambition and Tarte Tipsy blushes. Both are very nice and highly pigmented blushes. The Revlon blush was a bit of disappointment, since it’s not very pigmented.
Liquid foundations:
I have to test them more to write my proper opinion on them, but I think that the Neutrogena foundation isn’t working with my normal to dry skin. This foundation seems to be to drying for me and it makes me look older. I like the Clinique one very much.
Revlon lip butters:
I like them very much and I would like to buy more colors in the future.
Smashbox make up palette:
I love every single powder eyeshadow in this palette. They are very pigmented. I love the selection of colors. The cream eyeshadows are also nice, but not spectacular. The brush is surprisingly good too.
Sephora jumbo liners:
I already had two of them and I loved them, that’s why I bought two more. I’m not sure yet, but I think they irritate my eyes a bit.

Quick thought on the nail polishes that I bought:

I do not recommend Spoiled polishes (even though they are cheap), because the brush is insanely bushy and big. I love the China Glaze Prismatic Chrome Glitters!!! I’m thrilled that I got the Orly – Royal Navy and the $OPI – 212-Sephora nail polishes. Revlon – Rain Forest is an incredible green polish, the shimmer/small glitter show up nicely on the nails.


I would also like to show you make up products I took with me. This time I really didn’t take a lot. Only the things I really love and are versatile.

Perfumes I took with me. A sweet(er) and heavy(er) scent and a lighter everyday scent.

Bvlgari - Mon Jasmin Noir, D&G - Light Blue, Marc Jacobs - Daisy Eau So Fresh (tester)

I didn’t take photos of other facial and body care products I took with me. For my face I mainly took Sophyto products with me and for the body some random shower gels in travel size and some travel sized body lotions.

I think that is it. I have to say that I’m very satisfied with almost all the products that I bought. I also bought shoes and clothes (mainly dresses). I have to tell you … Outlet villages are awesome. I wish we would have some in the vicinity. I don’t know … if you are interested, I can also take photos of other stuff that I bought. Please let me know in the comments.

I’m also interested what are you taking with you, when you go travelling or on a vacation?
