USA Haul

Firstly I'd like to thank my good friend Daska who has kindly brought me everything I wished for from her trip to the USA. My shopping list wasn't too long and I'm very happy that she agreed to do a little shopping for me :) 

The first stop was Victoria's Secret. I fell in love with their Secret Garden collection and already tried many products from this line. This time I went for Lost in Fantasy (Passionfruit, Brazilian Orchid and Musk) and Luscious Kisses (Valencia Orange, Coconut and Tonka Bean) sets. Each set contains a shower gel, a body lotion and a body mist. I love both these sets, but I must admit that I prefer Luscious Kisses, because it's more sweet :) My favorite set I've tried so far is Love Spell, which was the first ever I bought from VS :) I also got some nice underwear but didn't take a photo of it ;)
VS doesn't have stores in the UK (shame!) however they have some little cosmetics selection in duty free shops at Gatwick and Stansted airports.  

Next stop was Sephora and their MAKE UP FOR EVER counter. I wanted to try their HD line for a long time so I got a foundation and a cream blush.

After looking at many swatches on other blogs I went for a foundation in shade no. 118 - Flesh
(for light skin with beige undertones). I'm NC25 in Mac and Sand in Estee Lauder Double Wear (in winter).

MUFE HD Foundation no. 118 
MUFE HD Foundation 118 half blended 
MUFE HD Foundation 118 blended
 HD Microfinish Blush in shade 6 - Quickie (salmon pink):

MUFE HD Blush no. 6 - you only need a tiny amount as it's very pigmented
MUFE HD Blush no. 6 half blended 

MUFE HD Blush no. 6 blended

And the last stop was GAP. I totally love their So Pink eau de toilette, which you can't buy in the UK :( It's a very simple, light and fresh fragrance which reminds me a summer I spent in the USA back in 2003 :) 



  1. make up for ever stuff look amazing!:)

  2. tak teraz zase zavidim ja tebe;), v poslednej dobe ma HD make up dost zaujal aky mas nan nazor?

  3. @Passing fancy - the blush is good but I don't think the foundation is the right for me... x

    @evie - tak sme si 1:1 :) myslela som ze MUFE HD bude super, teda vlastne aj je, ale asi tak prve dve hodiny ako si ho nanesiem... ja mam strasne mastnu plet, takze potom sa uz lesknem :( ale flawless effect spravi pekny :)

  4. I love these Victoria's Secret shower gels! They smell just yummy... can't get enough!
