NYC wishlist

Hi Beauts.

In 9 weeks time, I shall be strutting down fifth avenue, Starbucks in hand and hopefully enjoying the beautiful sunshine in New York City. I honestly can't believe how fast it's coming around, it only feelis like five minutes ago that we were booking up!

I have to admit, one thing I seriously can't wait for is hitting the drugstores and Sephora. No American holiday would be complete without some make up shopping right? 
I've complied a wishlist (which keeps growing by the day) and thought I'd share it with you all. Here we go, sit tight this could take a while :P 

* Wet and Wild palettes:
Comfort Zone
Cool as a cucumber
Walking on eggshells 
Petal pusher

* More Wet and Wild:
H20 proof eyeliner in Black
Bronzer in Goddess
Blush in Mellow Wine
Eyeshadows in Brulie and Kitten

* Covergirl:
Clump crusher mascara
3-in-1 Foundation
Flame out mascara
Lashblast mascara
Lipsticks - 
Just peachy
Doll house pink
Don't blink pink
Mauve outta here

* Maybelline: 
Baby lips 
Color whispers

* Milani color statement lipsticks in 
Fruit punch
Rose amour
Rose Hip
High Voltage
Best red

* EOS Lip balm (has to be done)
* Bath and body works hand sanitiser (again, has to be done)
* Tarte Amazonian clay blush in Exposed
* Make up Forever blush in Dark Raspberry

Yeahhhh so I guess I should get saving right?!! 

Have you tried any of the products I've listed, or do you have any recommendations?

  1. Hi honey! Think of me as your NYC shopping expert! The BEST place to buy Drugstore makeup is Duane Reade and look for stores with a Look Boutique in them as they stock more brands. The biggest one is just up from Macys on 30th Ave but my favourite was on the corner of 8th and 42nd ave-the bonus is its close to Sephora on 42nd! The best sephoras are 5th ave and times square although times square is always absolutely manic-the one on 42nd is quieter but the one in Times Square stocks literally everything! Check out the Josie Maran and Kat Von Dee eyeshadows, both are amazing and are in Sephora. The Buxom lip glaces are beautiful too. If you get down to Greenwich Bleeker St is a beauty addicts paradise and has all the little boutiques-Mac Pro, Aesop, Nars, it was just lovely walking along there (and the food/deli's are amazing down there). I wouldnt bother going to CO Bigelow, I was really excited about going but it was tiny, cramped, dated and old. Blommies beauty hall is lovely, Macys is a bit chaotic. Don't forget Mac is super cheap in the US as well. Let me know if you need anything, am following you on GFC and bloglovin but it's probably easiest to tweet me or email me. (expatmuaddict) I am SO jel, I want to go back. There are a few NYC haul posts on my blog as well. Oh and in Duane Reade check out Physicians formula, their eyeliner is amazing and their blushers are beautiful! Oh and Essie and Opi are super cheap out there too. I wish I had bought way more of the EOS lipbalms! I got mine from Duane Reade in Times Square. Have fun!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! xxxxx
