This was the big shopping for me. I have been to Sephora in Prague and Rome but I don't think I've ever been to one in the USA before, as during my last trip I didn't have much time in NYC and there isn't one in Downtown Washington.
I spent hours looking at the website before we went, examining all the brands not available here in Europe, checking prices, making lists. So here is what I bought... (reviews to follow separately)
|Becca Ultimate Coverage Complexion Creme in Shell and Cashmere|
|Cover FX Cream Concealer in N X Light and N Light|
|MD Solar Sciences Mineral Creme SPF 50 and Clinique City Block SPF 25|
|Korres Lip Butter in Guava and Murad Acne Spot Fast Fix|
|Tarte EmphasEYEs Liner, EmphasEYEs Inner Rim Brightener and Pure Maracuja Oil|
|Sephora Collection Eyeshadow in Secret Boudoir, Sephora Pencil Sharpener and Bobbi Brown Gel Liner in Black Ink|
I didn't buy that much in MAC, just the basic things that I use loads of and are much cheaper in the USA!
|Opulash in Bad Bad Black, Prep and Prime Finishing Powder and Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Painterly|
I also bought some underwear and clothes in Target, and some underwear and tights in Macys.
But the big purchase for me was a brand new suitcase. I needed a new one as my old one was used as a toilet by the cats and the wheels broke! I will be doing more travelling for work when I start my new job, so a new hardshell suitcase was pretty much a must have. Thankfully I found a very reasonably priced Samsonite in the sale in a bag store in a mall in Arlington.
