NYC Haul! | Victoria's Secret, Sephora, Bath & Body Works

Thursday, September 18, 2014

Nope, I didn't go to NYC (oh, how I wish!) but my mum travels a lot for work and she had to go over to North Carolina and New York for a week. Of course, it goes without saying that I jumped on the opportunity and sent her a list of items that don't retail here in Singapore! I only requested for makeup items but she came back with Victoria's Secret and Bath & Body Works goodies so I'd like to share them with you guys today! 

I'll start with the makeup first, because that's what I'm most excited about! I got a Kat Von D Lock-It Tattoo Concealer in the shade Medium 22. This is supposed to be a heavy-duty, hardcore, full-coverage concealer, fully capable of hiding even tattoos! I cannot wait to try this! 

I've been lusting after the Anastasia Brow Wiz pencil because of all the rave reviews and Youtubers calling it their holy grail. However, they were a tad bit expensive and I couldn't justify any reason for wanting it so I settled for the next best, the Dipbrow Pomade. It claims to be smudge-proof, water-proof, creamy and a must-have for oily skin and humid climates, so we'll have to wait and see if it does live up to its claims on my overly-oily face in Singapore's 30degree weather!

I've been trialing the Benefit Porefessional primer for quite some time now and wanted to try something new. The Tarte Clean Slate Poreless 12 Hr Primer sells for about $10 cheaper in the States so it went onto the list! It claims to help makeup stay in place for 12 hours and reduce lines and pores while plant extracts provide anti-aging and skin-restorative benefits. Sounds great, especially for city-dwellers! 

Aren't these knickers the cutest you've ever seen? I just love the colours and tribal lace band! These are from Victoria's Secret and come in two cuts, one a regular panty shape and the other a boy-cutting. They feel really soft and since fall is approaching, I think it'd be really cheeky to wear them under all the drab winter clothes. It's like a little perk-me-up that only you know about. ;D

Last but not least, Bath & Body Works! (This brand is waaaaay too overpriced in Singapore, about twice the amount it's sold for in the states) I picked two lotions and candles out of the whole lot my mum came back with. The two lotions are Harvest and Autumn. Harvest mainly has plum moscato and toasted almond notes (mmmm) and Autumn smells of pear and cashmere woods! 
The Apple Orchard candle smells just like crisp, ripe apples that aren't too sweet or sour and the Sweater Weather candle is an invigorating blend of eucalyptus, juniper berry and sage.
