Huge American Beauty Haul 2013

I've just returned from Florida and you know that means one thing... Haul time! This year I actually think I was pretty well behaved, but I will let you make up your own minds. Lets start with the goodies I picked up from Sephora, the place that dreams come true, for us beauty addicts that is.

Sephora Haul

Sephora Haul
Stila In The Moment Eye Shadow Palette:
Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Serum:
Urban Decay De Slick Setting Spray:
Tarte Glamazon Lipstick in Fierce:
Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment:
Stila Convertible Colour in Gerbara & Petunia:
Ojon Rare Blend Oil Total Hair Therapy:

I could have easily bought more but whenever I step into a Sephora I get mesmerized and find it hard to focus haha. Let me know if there any products in particular you would like to see in more detail with swatches or a review when I've had chance to try everything out.

I of course picked up a few nail polishes, they are my number one love after all.
Huge Nail Polish Haul
 Essie Bouncer, It's Me:
Essie In My Cab-Ana:
OPI When Monkeys Fly:
OPI Lights Of Emerald City:
OPI Thanks A Windmillion:
OPI I Have A Herring Problem:
Butter London Fiver:
Wet & Wild Hollywood Walk Of Fame:
Milani Jem, Gold, Silver:
Sally Hanson Barracuda:
Sally Hanson Insta-dri Peachy Breeze & Blue Away.

 I think I'm definitely in a blue phase at the moment, I can't wait to do my nails, especially with the Butter London polish, I've been searching for it for months.

I made sure to pop into my favourite CCO to see what they had to offer and by gum did they come up trumps.

CCO Haul
Bumble & Bumble Seaweed Shampoo & Conditioner:
Estee Lauder Pure Colour Blush in Witty Peach:
Estee Lauder Pure Colour Bronze Sands Palette:
Clinique High Impact Mascara:

I actually did a little squeal when I saw the Estee Lauder palettes, my mum thought I had lost it, but they were such a bargain and I'd had my eye on them for ages. I know they don't look that interesting in their dark blue packaging but wait till you see them, aahhh.

The best of the rest:
Make Up Haul
Living Proof Full Set:
Real Techniques Limited Edition Duo Fiber Brush Set:
Maybelline Limited Edition Colour Tattoo in Cool Crush:
Covergirl Clump Crusher Mascara:
Maybelline Mega Plush Mascara:
Revlon Nearly Naked Foundation & Powder:
Covergirl Lipstick in Flame.

I had to pick up the Taylor Swift Covergirl lipstick, I do worship the lady herself after all.

Lastly I found am amazing bargain in TJMaxx, no idea why they changed the letter though?

Steve Madden Stud Tote Bag
Meet my new Steve Madden Studded Tote.

If you read my What's In My Bag Post you will know the bag I use the majority of the time is from Steve Madden and I absolutely love it. I've been looking for a new brown bag for quite a while and when I saw this I know it was for me and the best part, it was $49.99, hello bargain. I can't wait to start toting it around haha. I also picked up lots of dog toys for Daisy, which she loves.

There we have it, I can't wait to start using all my goodies. It's like a blogger rule that you're not allowed to use any of the products before you've photographed them, so I can finally take them all out of their packaging and start playing around.

As I mentioned in my last post I may have also picked up a few things from Space NK thanks to their recent goodie bag offer, so there may be another beauty haul in the next week, hope you don't mind. Though I can now safely say I will not be buying any other beauty products for the next few months, I think I'm set, don't you haha.

Let me know what you've picked up recently and if you've ever found some gems in either TK Maxx or a CCO.

XOXO Claire
