New York Beauty Haul

Just got back from my trip to New York! This time around, I hauled mainly beauty stuff and just one pair of flats from Geox. I didn't buy any clothes at all as I was already splurging so much at Sephora and the drugstores. (Not all of the stuff is mine, the stuff on the right one-third of the pic are for friends.) I finally decided to take the plunge and invest in the Clarisonic Mia brush, as quite a number of bloggers say that it helps to prevent breakouts. Haven't had the time to try it out yet though.

Set of 5 Clinique mascara minis (US$25).

Tokidoki kabuki brush

Tarina Tarantino blushes in Filigree, Feather and Parasol. I don't like the crystal-studded pink packaging of the Tarantino line but these soft shimmery blushes were just too pretty to resist.

CoverFX Mineral Bronzing Powder in Golden Peach.

Sephora by OPI nailpolishes. Only the Teal We Meet Again on the extreme left is mine.

Physician's Formula Organic Wear 100% Natural Origin Loose Powder, Maybelline The Falsies Volum'express mascara and Cover Girl Lash Blast Fusion mascara.

Physician's Formula Shimmer Strips in Rosy Glow.

Armani Sheer Blush #10 from Bloomingdale's.

At JFK Airport Terminal 7, I was surprised to discover a NARS counter in the dutyfree. Not only were the prices a couple of dollars lower than Sephora, the store was also giving a 5% discount on purchase of US$150, 10% off US$200 and 15% off US$250. The blushes were US$23.50 (versus US$26 on Sephora) while the new Multiple Tints were US$34 (versus US$38 on Sephora). So I ended up getting the Multiple Tints in Turks & Caicos and Beverly Hills, Madly and Gilda Blushes, Parrot Cay Eyeliner (beautiful pale mint), Babe lipgloss and the Makeup Primer.

Collective haul from Narita Airport in Tokyo including the RMK Face Powder N P00 and Mix Colors for Eyes (Shiny) EX01 Gold.

Thanks for reading!

If you don't mind, please inform us when you try it someday (bcoz you bought lots mascaras so it has to queue...lol)
And you bought so many pretty Lunasol palettes...can't wait to see your EOTD with them :)
