American Makeup Haul

I have accumulated a fair amount of American brand makeup over the last six months or so for a number of reasons, such as family visiting from the states, the discovery of beauty joint.com etc, etc! I did a fair bit of research into the products I ordered, and a lot of the items are well known products in the beauty community. So I will say I’m very happy with the majority of these items!

Milani Bella Eyeshadows – Love these! They are incredibly pigmented and have an amazing range of shades. Most of the shades are shimmer finish, but they do have a few matte shades, which make great crease colours. I own 15 of these at the moment. After ordering a couple of shades a few months ago, I had to go back for more! My top recommendations would be Bella Copper, Bella Gold, Bella Khaki, Bella Mandarin and Bella Rose.
 
Wet n Wild Megalast Lipsticks – Super affordable, massive range of shades that provide great dupes for higher end lippies and last ages on the lips! My favourites of the moment are Sugar Plum Fairy, Bare It All, Pinkerbelle and Rose Bud.
 
LA Girl Glazed Lip Paints – These are compared to the Too faced Melted lipsticks, however I feel that while the packaging of these products are very similar the finish is totally different. Too faced Melted lipsticks dry to a matte finish, whereas the LA girl Glazed lip paints maintain more of a glossy finish. I find them more comparable to OCC lip tars, with their finish and highly pigmented gloss effect. Again, these are really affordable and have a unique range colours available. I love Whimsical, Tango and Tease.

Wet n Wild Comfort Zone palette and Walking on Eggshells palette – I really enjoy using these palettes. There has been a lot of hype over them, and for good reason it seems. I particularly loved the Walking on Eggshells palette. The shades look very neutral, but give such an amazing shimmery, fresh look to the eyes. This also contains some good dupes for Mac shadows.

(For UK readers, these products are available on beautyjoint.com)

Anastasia Maya Mia palette – The Anastasia palettes have been really popular in the YouTube community, so I wanted to test one out for myself. I really like the warm tones in this palette with a few pops of colour. This makes a good everyday palette or something for travelling with as you can achieve a number of looks with just this one palette.

Kat Von D Chrysalis palette – I picked up the Monarch palette on my last trip to the states and the pigmentation was so wow that I had to get the Chrysalis palette too. Beautiful and unique colours, and some of the best shadows I’ve ever used. Kat Von D rocks my world.

Lorac Pro 2 palette – Another product which has had an amazing amount of hype surrounding it. I don’t often opt for cool tone shadows, but these shades are lovely. Again this is a highly pigmented palette and I can see why everyone loves it!

And that’s it! I need to start building up my beauty wish list again for my next trip to the US, so if you have any recommendations or must-have products, then please let me know!
