US Haul: Sephora, Kat Von D, ABH, Becca, Elf, LA Girl, Colourpop
So a few months back, my husband had gone to US for his work and obviously I had to order a few things 😀 This haul is long pending, I had to record the video and click pictures and hence the delay. I haven’t used any of this yet because I wanted to click pictures :/ Yes, I know I have too much self control!
Here’s what all I got from Sephora:
- Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Champange Pop (Becca x Jaclyn Hill collab)- $38
- Sephora Cream Lip Stain 13 Marvelous Mauve – $14
- Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick Rio – $20
- Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick Lolita – $20
- Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick Lolita II – $20
Now I wanted to get the Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kit which had 4 highlighters and it was $40. But Champagne Pop was on my wishlist since a long time and I love Jaclyn Hill! Considering the price of Champagne Pop and Glow Kit, Glow Kit was obviously a more economical option as you get 4 different highlighters and just one here. It was a tough choice but I went with Champagne Pop 😀 I will get the Glow Kit sometime later
Kat Von D Lolita and Lolita II are her best selling shades and I see why. Both are super flattering and would work on any skin tone, be it warm or cool. In terms of formula, Kat Von D Liquid Lipsticks are the most comfortable liquid lipsticks I have tried till now. They are not at all drying and super comfortable, though they don’t last as long as the drying ones.
Anastasia Liquid Lipsticks are very drying and accentuate the dryness and lines on the lips. But they are easily the most long lasting liquid lipsticks and also have some bright, fun shades. I got the shade Rio which is the brightest and most neon pink I own! I got it only for the shade! It’s such a fun, summer colour. I am totally into bold shades and liquid lipsticks right now
And lastly, I have heard so many good things about the Sephora Cream Lip Stains and again they are very comfortable and not drying. I love mauve shades and this one is a perfect, everyday wear shade. Also one of their best selling shade again.
I got the Fresh Skincare Set samples free at Sephora.
Then I ordered few things from Colourpop and Amazon.com.
Here’s what I got from Colourpop:
- Colourpop Ultra Satin in Toolips
- Colourpop Ultra Matte in Are & Be
- Colourpop Ultra Matte in Privacy Please
- Colourpop Ultra Matte in Trap
- Colourpop Ultra Matte in Chilly Chilli (discontinued)
- Colourpop Super Shock Shadow in Bae- $5
I got all liquid lipsticks mostly, I am obsessed with Colourpop Liquid Lipsticks as they are the most economical option and you get a ton of shade options. At $6, I highly recommend Colourpop Liquid Lipsticks! If you want something long lasting, then Colourpop Ultra Matte formula and if you want something comfortable, then Colourpop Ultra Satin formula. I go by shades mostly, coz both the formulas are ok with me. If I like the shade, I order it. And I have majority Colourpop Ultra Matte in my stash.
I placed one more order on Colourpop when one of my cousin was coming from US in December. You can order Colourpop directly from their site as they offer worldwide shipping but since Colourpop is pretty cheap, there will be customs duty levied on it. All liquid lipsticks in India, i.e. Colorbar, Chambor, etc are 900-1000, so they compare the prices and levy duty on it.
My 2nd Colourpop order:
- Colourpop Ultra Matte Zipper
- Colourpop Ultra Satin Frick N Frack
- Colourpop Ultra Matte Set in Blues Baby which has Smitten, Avenue, Notion, Play Date and Mink – $25
And finally I got a few things from Amazon:
- LA Girl Pro HD Concealers in Orange, Creamy Beige and Toast
- Elf Studio Baked Highlighter in Blush Gems- $7
- Duo Lash Adhesive Eyelash Glue – $5.38
- Maybelline Master Strobing Stick Illuminating Highlighter Light Iridescent- $7.99
I have been wanting to try the LA Girl Pro HD Concealers since a long time, though there is not much of a price difference in India, I just thought of ordering them too since they were definitely cheaper. They are $5-6 in US online and even less in some stores and here around Rs.550-600, so the difference is not huge. I got orange for color correcting dark circles, creamy beige as my concealer shade and Toast for contouring.
Elf Baked Highlighter in Blush Gems is an exact dupe of MAC Highlighter in Soft and Gentle. So obviously, I had to get it! Maybelline Highlighter stick is not yet launched in India and I wanted to try it, so I got that. Stick highlighters are cream based and very handy to carry around and travel with to.
Of course I read all reviews and ordered all items which are good and raved about. So if you want to buy anything from these, trust me it’s good and go ahead 🙂
What did you haul recently? Anything from this?
