Seeing as I forgot to post on Wednesday (I'm on vacay time *shrugs*), I thought I'd sneak in a lil special post today to make up for it!
Ever since I've arrived in Florida, which was only just under a week ago, I have visited Target twice. Twice. Let me repeat that for those who didn't hear. T W I C E. I'll also disclose that there is no Target under 30 mins away. So it's a trek. But it's worth it.
I love shopping in the U.S. as there are so many things here that we can't get in Canada (or things that are cheaper there than back home...) so it's like a totally different experience. I love poking around the beauty departments of different stores, checking out what sorts of things they've got in stock that we don't have back home or stuff that we just don't see a lot of. With that comes a lot of splurging, I'll be honest. So, from my over-excessive purchasing, I thought I'd do a bit of a haul post of the beauty and skincare items that I've picked up over the last few days!
The first few things I purchased came from, you guessed it, Target. My beloved.
E.l.f. Cosmetics Contour Brush [x] - Having a little look around the e.l.f. display at Target, I found that they have a lot more brushes available in store than we typically get at my small town drugstore back home. So, I treated myself to this snazzy contour brush which was only $6 usd. I love me a good, inexpensive e.l.f. brush and this was just the sort of thing I needed.
E.l.f. Cosmetics Eyelash Curler [x] - This eyelash curler was only $2 usd!!!! Can you believe that? I knew that I needed a new eyelash curler and was dreading buying one because I didn't want to spend the $10 on one (I know, I can be weirdly frugal sometimes). But at just $2, there was no buyer's remorse here!
E.l.f. Cosmetics Eyebrow Kit in Medium [x] - Of course, I had to repurchase this fab eyebrow kit. I've talked about this over, and over again. I'd started to run out of this just before I arrived in Florida, so I definitely had to go pick this up. The kit costs $3 usd.
E.l.f. Cosmetics Kabuki Face Brush [x] - I've always wanted a kabuki brush, but had never come across one I liked and couldn't be bothered to order one online from e.l.f., so seeing this at Target made my day! I love how multi-purposeful this brush is, and also how compact it is as well. This brush cost $5.49 usd.
NYX Matte Bronzer in Medium [x] - I was in the market for a new bronzer, one of a darker shade, now that I'll be getting a tan (hopefully soon). This one is just lovely. It's a matte bronzer, which is perfect as shimmer would not look great mixed with sweat which is pretty inevitable in Florida. This bronzer set me back $6.29 usd.
Maybelline Master Chrome Metallic Highlighter in Molten Gold [x] - I picked this highlighter up sort of on a whim, after briefly hearing someone rave about it on Twitter. I've already used it and I actually LOVE it!! It's so vibrant and gorgeous. I feel like a sun goddess whenever I wear it hahaha. This bad boy cost $7.49 usd.
The second, and last stop, I made for purchases was at Ulta Beauty, the American cosmetics shop.
Not Your Mother's She's A Tease Volumizing Hairspray [x] - I've already purchased this a few times before - as I'm sure you remember, I've raved about Not Your Mother's products time and time again. I was in desperate need of a hairspray after facing the horror of humidity once again, so I picked up this lovely hairspray which cost $7 usd.
Formula 10.0.6 Keep Your Cool Skin-Calming Gel Mask [x] - A few weeks ago, I saw a girl post her skincare routine on Twitter and she included a handful of Formula 10.0.6 products. Seeing how lovely her skin was, I definitely had to try this brand out! This was the first thing I picked up - a lovely coconut and cucumber gel mask. I looked at some of the peel-off masks, but frankly, they sort of scare me, lol. This mask cost $7 usd.
Formula 10.0.6 P.M. Perfector [x] - The other Formula 10.0.6 item I picked up was the P.M. Perfector. I really wanted to find a new nighttime face cream, so I thought I'd try this one. It's got blackcurrant and licorice in it (??) which is kind of odd but I'm hoping it's not too bizarre of a scent! This nighttime cream set me back $9 usd.
And that's all for now! I'm very excited to try out all these lovely bits of skincare and beauty products, and I'm hoping they live up to my expectations!
