An ~American~ Haul


(The amount of hauls I've been pulling as of late is ridiculous. I feel like I'm just shoving my consumerism in your faces ;-;) (Also, excuse the lack of consistent posting, it's the final weeks of uni, which means PAPERS ASSIGNMENTS QUIZZES REPORTS IN YO FACE)

This past weekend, I took a trip to Michigan, and every time I go to the States for a shopping trip, I get so angry. 
"WHAT THE ACTUAL FUQ, AMERICA??!??!!?" I would scream in my head as I stroll down aisle after aisle in Walmart, with aisle after aisle presenting the most outrageous and ridiculous products. Instant kettle corn popcorn? You got it! Have you even seen how many brands and varieties of frozen pizza there are in Walmart??? INSANE. WHY DO YOU GUYS EVEN HAVE 'OREO PIE CRUSTS'???? EXCUSE ME???

Can someone mail me a green card pls?

Don't even get me started when I finally found the e.l.f and NYX section at Target. I was ready to break down and cry on the spot.

Yabber yabber yabber, yeah, I know you're just here for the haul.


If you're new to my blog, well, you should know I'm a blush fiend. 
I was trying hard not to sob after I found an extensive section of NYX at Target. CAN YOU BELIEVE THE BLUSHES ARE ONLY $5???? BLASPHEMY. AND THE ELF BLUSHES ARE ONLY $3!!!! WHAT THE WHAT??????

Anyways, I picked up:
  • NYX's 'Terra Cotta', 'Pinched' and 'Mocha' 
  • E.L.F's 'Tickled Pink' and 'Mellow Mauve'
  • Milani's 'Berry Amore'
  • Revlon Photoready Cream Blush in 'Pinched'


I didn't even realise I had picked so many Maybelline products...

I got:

  • Maybelline's 'Full N Soft' mascara (we don't have these in Canada!)
  • Maybelline's 'the Colossal' mascara
  • Maybelline's Dream Fresh BB (as backup)
  • Maybelline's BabyLips Dr. Rescue in 'Coral Crave' (haven't seen these in Canada yet)

I snuck into a Sephora, and felt like I had hit the jackpot when I found out the location sold Soap and Glory, so I got a mini body butter trio. I also got Urban Decay's 'Urban Essentials' set for 500 pts. 

(I mean, I kinda only got the trio for the SUGAR CRUSH. THAT STUFF SMELLS HELLA AMAZE)


I picked up Bumble and Bumble's 'Brilliantine' after seeing it on Daphne's blog (~dat lush hair~ yo), and her hair was so hairporn that I decided to pick this product up for myself. 

Also picked up Simple's 'Cleansing Facial Wipes' because I love this stuff. (Strange as it sounds, this wipe smells like mushrooms to me)


YOOOOOOOOOOO I stood in disbelief when I saw these. DID YOU KNOW THEY MADE SHOWER GELS? RIDICULOUS. I'll have to try and not confuse them with shampoo when I'm in the shower!


Non-beauty related, but I bought my first teapot! :3
(Also bought a decent amount of scarves and sweaters in the States, heh)

GRATUITOUS SHOTS

    1. Yeah, I think I'm going all British as of late, I even practised saying 'FANCY A CUPPA??' so I am an honorary Brit now :3
      IDK, DON'T THE BLUSHES HAVE A TINY STICKER ON THE BACK?? (I know mine do, but other than that, yeah its frustrating that they aren't labelled!)

      GOOD LUCK ON YOUR FINALS TOO, IQRA :3

    2. hahahaha OMG if you haven't finished editing your video yet PLEAAASE put 'fancy a cuppa??' in there:'D then indeed you would be the most honorary. legendary Canadian yet internally British Brit ever X)

  5. It certainly looks like you got some great new additions to your ever growing blush collection! And that teapot is so cute! I just bought a mug in that same color the other day. I'm happy to say I'm done with most of my Christmas shopping. I'm one of those who shops throughout the year cause I just can't deal with the holiday crowds. Oh yeah I just picked up some Embryolisse moisturizer - the cult classic that all French women supposedly swear by.

    1. It's an out-of-control blush collection at this point. I'm a blush monster and it's terrifying :(

      Ugh, I can't deal with holiday crowds either! (Don't like masses of people, hah) Smart move on your part though ;)
      AHHHH! JEALOUS. I want to try that moisturizer too! Haven't got around to purchasing it yet, but I will eventually!

    1. I haven't tried 'Terra Cotta' yet, because I can't stop using 'Mocha'!
      I know some WalMarts carry it, though not all Walmarts. And Real Canadian Superstore!
      I know how frustrating it can be to find Milani, haha :(

  14. All the Targets around me STILL DO NOT sell any NYX stuff *fit of rage* I also think you're turning me into a blush nut... js.
    Maybelline's Full 'n Soft is probably my favorite mascara that I've tried thus far. I always go back to it when I start disliking something that I recently picked up~

  19. That's sooo awesome! I love everything you hauled! I'm a huge fan of blushes, I love rose shades and I will buy rose shades from any brands! I have two milani blushes and I love them so much. I also envy your UD set! I wish they have products like that in sephora here! I asked for a soap & glory gift set for christmas from my boyfriend as I really want to sample all their skincare bits! I love your tea pot too, its adorable and I really want to get mugs now!
