My London Cosmetic Haul

Before venturing to the United Kingdom, I fantasized about what cosmetic brands I wanted to buy.  Besides learning about a country or culture through its food & drink, I learn via its cosmetics.  The obvious choices were brands that were not readily available in the U.S.  I had narrowed the list down to Sleek, Gosh, Me Me Me, and Barry M.

It was off to London’s shopping district!  First stop, Boots =)  I ended up buying a cute owl necklace and hair scrunchy; surprising not one makeup item.  A few Boots associates were kind enough to point me to the right direction.  It was really SuperDrug that I wanted.  The next morning I happily trotted into Holborn’s SuperDrug and shopped to my heart’s content.  This was what I bought…

Beginner’s Choice: NYX Cosmetics

If you are just starting out in makeup, I highly recommend NYX palettes and products for their awesome color pay-off and prices which won’t hurt your wallet.  My favorite palettes are The Makeup Artist Box S106, The Bronze Goddess, and Winter in Moscow (great for smokey eye looks).  Please check out NYX’s website for more great products.  I’m also loving their blushes; which have more than lived up to their YT high praises.  ♥ NYX!
