US Trip (2014) Haul Part 1

Hey everyone!

My vacation in the US will be over soon and I'll be back in Manila on the 26th. I really had fun during the last few weeks and I'll make sure to enjoy the last couple of days here. I am considering blogging my 3 week vacation (it's gonna be a long post LOL) but I'll probably make it a few days or maybe a week later when I get back. :P

For now, I'll just share some of the beauty products I bought while staying over my friend's place in Los Angeles, the first stop of my trip. I stayed here for 7 days. Most of the beauty products bought were for daily use since I didn't bring much makeup with me (my luggage was almost full).

First off, drugstore makeup at Target. I didn't bring any concealer or loose powder with me...

Rimmel ScandalEyes Kohl Liner in 005 Nude
NYX Full Coverage Concealer in a Jar in Beige
Sonia Kashuk Undetectable Loose Powder
No7 Precision Lip Pencil in Nude
Maybelline Illegal Length Mascara
No7 Beautifully Matte Foundation in Deeply Beige

I bought a lot of nudes since it's the safest makeup I can use while on trip. I bought some No7's because one of my favorite makeup artists, Lisa Eldridge, used this brand on many of her makeup tutorials. I wanted to try this out myself and bought a couple since this brand is not in our country yet.

Next stop is at Sephora! Of course I had to stop by at one of their stores ASAP. :P

Too Faced Beauty Blogger Darlings Set
NARS Light Reflecting Loose Powder
Make Up For Ever Aqua Liner
Beauty Blender
Clinique Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector
I got some freebies too. Sachets from Murad and Dr. Dennis Gross.

I bought another Beauty Blender because I am not satisfied with the foundation brush I bought. LOL. The beauty blogger kit from Too Faced is such a great deal! It has everything I needed during the trip—a primer, an eyeshadow primer, and a bronzer! And all these have great reviews online so I can't wait to try them out!

Of course I had to buy some artsy stuff during my tours in museums like in The Getty and LACMA...

I thought that I came here to appreciate American Art but I am just too in-love with French Impressionism and Japanese art. :P

And since I am so inspired to draw after seeing so many beautiful artworks, I went to Micheal's and bought me some art materials so that I have something to do during my spare time in my trip.

I also bought some clothes (which are in the laundry while I am making this post), a 1 inch hair iron, and a DKNY Bag. I'll take pictures of these on my next haul post. :P

These aren't even half of the stuff I bought. I already told my mom that I'll give her most of my salary for the next coming months. I feel guilty for all the shopping I bought using my supplementary card. LOL (She's cool with it just so we're clear). Hope you stay tune for the next part!

I'll leave you with this fresh, pretty peonies from my best friend's room. 
Aren't they just lovely? :D



  1. My eyes are now fixated with that Too Faced Beauty Blogger Darlings Set!!!!

    1. It's so awesome! Haha! Yeah, I recommend you try it. :D

  2. Fave ko yung Sephora haul! Specifically, the Too Faced kit. Were you ever interested in the chocolate bar palette? Scented daw yun and I think it's awesome :P But these blogger faves are honest-to-goodness blogger faves. So many raves on that primer!

    1. Me too! When I saw the too faced kit, it didn't took me two seconds to get it. Haha! I've read so many raves about them that I just want one for myself. Haha! I also saw the chocolate bars but I controlled myself on getting it kasi I don't think I would use it much anyway.

  3. OMG so jealous of that mini kit and i'd love to have that scandal eyes eyeliner and the concealer to try! The flowers are lovely!

    1. Will post reviews about them sometime soon. :D :D :D

  4. waaa been dying to get that too faced beauty blogger darlings kit! I really should get that. LOL nice haul sis!
