NYC Beauty Haul

During my recent trip to New York City, I couldn't help but pick up a few beauty bits. American prices are much better than Canadian prices, so I had to take advantage of the great deals!

I had a few items on my shopping list, and one of them was an Inglot palette. I headed to the Inglot store in Times Square and started swatching! I decided on the quad, and the shades 12, 154, 40, and 48. I've been using this palette for the past couple of days, and I've absolutely been loving the shades that I picked out!

I also picked up a few hair care items, and focused on products that aren't available or hard to find in Canada. The girls over at Her Late Night Cravings have been raving about the new Suave line, so I had to try some of them out! I picked up Suave's Moroccan Infusion Styling Oil, Keratin Infusion Smooth & Shine Serum, and Keratin Infusion Dry Shampoo. I also picked up Aussie's 3 Minute Miracle, which I've been wanting to try for years! This isn't available in Canada, so I needed to pick it up while I could. While I was in one of the hundreds of Duane Reade's in the city, I stumbled across the Not Your Mother's line. I picked up two items for the brand, the Smooth Moves Frizz Control Hair Cream and Clean Freak Refreshing Dry Shampoo.

Now onto the beauty bits! I picked up a ton of lipsticks, they seemed to be my weakness on this trip! First, I picked up two YSL Rouge Volupte Shines from Macy's. I got the shades #6 Pink In Devotion and #19 Fuchsia In Rage. I also picked up Revlon's new Lash Potion mascara, as I've heard quite a few amazing reviews on this item. Next, I stopped by MAC, both the Times Square location, and the counter in Macy's. I  bought Pink Poodle Lipglass and Star Nova Lustreglass.

I also picked up four MAC lipsticks: High Strung, Lickable, Syrup, and Sunny Seoul. MAC prices are way better in the States, so once again I had to take advantage of the deals! These shades look beautiful, and I can't wait to try them out :)

I'm loving everything I bought in the Big Apple so far! Have you picked up any beauty items recently? I also picked up quite a few fashion pieces and accessories, so please let me know if you'd like to see those in a separate post!
