Off tomorrow! Haven't been for ages- any beauty stuff worth getting that you can't get over here? Exchange rate is rubbish so no advantage to buying most stuff available here. Thanks!

I am always wanting to know what's good as my husband works in the USA and I often give him shopping lists. Sephora do great sets of things which work out to be great value as they usually have full size things in too. The last one I got was 60 dollars and had full size nars orgasm blush urban decay shadow tarte lip balm an anastasia bh eyebrow pencil and loads of other bits.

I currently have my eye on this one

Sephora - Sephora own brand sheet masks, Tarte, Bite Beauty, Fresh, Boscia (they do the black peel off mask) and Mario Badescu for skincare.

Ulta sell Lorac - good eyeshadows.

CVS/Target etc - you can get most of the beauty brands over here, but some have different products so worth a browse. I like Milani (try their baked blusher), Wet and Wild for cheap dupes for MAC lipsticks. Covergirl also worth a look - same family as Max Factor but slightly different products iirc. Other boring bits - Crest White Strips are much stronger over there, and Listerine Pocket Packs are great.

Have fun OP!
