New York Shopping List Makeup

New York Shopping List Make Up

So there is not long left til New York. We are talking less than a month and the excitement is real people!
I have been before since my sisters used to live there but its 3 years from the last trip to my favorite city and I miss it dearly.

Dont you worry the above products is just a few from the long long list I have been putting together. And in true Virgo style I have separate list for skincare and for lipsticks. I will of course not get everything on all the lists but I like knowing what I'm looking for. These 6 products have been on my mind for a while.

1. NARS Sheer Glow Foundation (Link)- I have never had this and I have always wanted it. I have chosen countries to live in poorly cause they often dont stock NARS and I'm scared to order online as I dont know which shade will work best. NARS is coming to Dubai in October but there is no way I can wait that long.

2. Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz (Link)- It says you can define your ideal brow shape with Brow Wiz. I want to do that!

3. Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 Hours Blush in Natural Beauty (Link)- I love the formula of this blush I have it in a nude pink shade called Exposed. Its so long lasting and I keep reaching for it over my other blushes. This rosy red shade is missing from my blush collection.

4. Stila Magnificent Metals Foil Finish in Dusty Rose (Link)- ohh I dont know. Its a foil finish eyeshadow that had a rose gold finish. Does it need more explanations?

5. Kat Von D Tattoo Liner (Link)- I love eyeliner and I use it most days of the week. Even if I dont feel like using eyeshadow a little eyeliner will often be there. I also love the videos of Claire Marshall from Hey Claire and she has raved about this liner numerous times. This is one of the first things that will go into my basket at the holy day that will be forever refereed to as The Visit to NYC Sephora.

6. NARS Dual Intensity Eyeshadow in Dione (Link)- Yeah lets just say one of the NARS stores in NYC is gonna get hit bad. You can believe me this is not the end of my NARS wishlist. But its high on the top of it. Based on swatches these new eyeshadows that you can use dry or wet look pretty amazing. 

 Me and my sisters are discussing of doing a little spa day in Mario Badescu and I am still not decided if I should focus my shopping on a new pair of shoes or a new handbag?

Also makeup wise please do suggest amazing you-must-buy-this products I should be looking out for while in New York? And is there anything on my list you have tried and it didn't impress you? 

Recommendations are highly appreciated. 


  1. I LOVE this post! :) As you know, I'm getting equally excited about my trip to the states in October and the list is well on it's way to being extremely long! ha!

    I'm also so pleased to hear you're a Virgo...that must be why we are so similar!! I'm forever making lists and I too separate lists into sections. I have about 20 lists running on my iphone 'notes' at the moment! sad but true!

    The brow wiz is great, I'm going to do a review of it soon on my blog. I also love those Tarte blushes (wearing Tipsy today!)

    And those Nars eyeshadows....don't even get me started - I'm tied between getting Dione and Himalaya at the moment.

    Some other things you might want to check out (that feature on my list!) Milani baked blush in Luminoso, Boscia cleansing oil, the Tarte Mascara in the gold weird packaging, the Loraq pro palettes.

    Ooooh, I'm excited for you!

    Have a great week!

    1. Oh 20 lists on iphone notes is not sad. Its what awesome people do!!

      Thanks for the recommendations as well. Lorac is on the list as well.. in addition to eyeshadow palettes I have been looking at the Lorac Coral blush.!

      We have public holidays here so 2 days off. Best kind of week coming straight from vacation and getting to chill at home. Hope UK is sunny and you get to enjoy your beutiful new garden a lot :) x

  2. How exited!!! You're so lucky!
    So I have the Anastasia Brow Wiz and I love it, it's very precise, so it's very practical.
    The Tarte blush in Natural Beauty is really the perfect flush for a pale skin like us, and the pigmentation is really good.
    And if you want some recommendations, I agree with Elisabeth about the Lorac palettes, I love them, the colors are insane and the pigmentation is amazing, so it probably worth a visit to Ulta!;)
    And you have a lot of very good drugstores brands which are very cheap, and look very good: Milani, Physician Formula, even Maybelline or Revlon because some products are exclusive to the US market... So I'm sure you will find some treasures!
    Enjoy and don't forget to do a haul!;))

    1. Oh I am soo soo excited its crazy! Thanks a lot for the recommendations all will go on my list to check out once in New York. Im trying to limit the possibility of getting totally overwhelmed there so good to have some brands to look out for..haha..

      There will of course be a haul and vlog and millions of pictures. I will not be able to contain myself neither will I try :D x

  3. Lovely post, you've made me want everything on it!!

  4. I picked up the Kat Von D liner for my SIL when I was last in the States and she hasn't stopped raving about it since I'm gutted I didn't pick it up for myself. It's on my wishlist for my next trip in September.


    1. Oh now you make me want it even more! I think I can move it from my wishlist to the definitely-must-buy list :D Thanks! x

  5. I haven't tried any of this, but I think it's very clear that I need the Stila eyeshadow as soon as possible. Very jealous of your impending trip to New York! x

    1. I have never actually tried the Stila ones in real life but based on swatches there are some super special foil effect shades. Cant wait to play around with them at the counter already :) x
