USA Wish List

Hello Beauties, so as you may or may not know I am going away on holidays on Friday. I am off to Orlando for a week with my lovely family and gorgeous boyfriend. 
The trip was part of my 21st birthday present from my incredible overly generous parents (Shout out to Brian and Vonnie, love you guys). I have honestly been looking forward to this trip for I don't know how long, it's been ages since I have been away on holidays and even longer since I have been in the USA and what is most exciting about this trip is its my first Holiday with my gorgeous boyfriend Cían which is a major bonus.
As a beauty blogger a trip to the USA really means one thing and one thing only.....SHOPPING. Not only Seophora but Drugstore makeup shopping. I have been composing a wish list since I found out we were going and honestly it is now the length of my arm (or longer).
I wanted to do a USA wishlist post but if I added absolutely everything on my list we would honestly be here for years so I have just added a few of the main items from a few different brands, both high end and drugstore.
Obviously I will do a haul post when I am back but for now this will have to do.

Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 Hour foundation

I hate to admit it but I haven't ever tried anything from Tarte (beauty blogger sin I know). I have heard so many wonderful things about this foundation and its full coverage my absolute favourite and need it in my life.

Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Blush

I am so OCD about products and my collection that I know I can't just have one product from a brand and I have heard so many beauty bloggers rave about this blush that I know I need to try it, plus the colours look incredible (o my WOW).

Bath and Body Works Hand Sanatizer

There's not really much I can say about this, you can't go to the states without picking up some bath and body works hand sanatizer.

EOS Lipbalm

I absolutely love these little beauties but just can't justify buying them in TopShop over here they are just far to expensive so obviously when I am in the states I am going to seriously stock up, I'm thinking one in every flavour.

NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk

Again this is another product that is all over the blogosphere, I have tried a white eye pencil before and loved it so can't wait to try this one and see how I get on with it.  

NYX Butter Glosses

Really need I say more? Everyone and their mum has been talking about these little beauties so I know I need to try them, not like I need anymore lip products but these seem to be a must have.

Bobbi Brown BBU Palette

Recently in college we had the lovely Amy Conway from Bobbi Brown come in and do a demo for us, she showed us the BBU palette and as soon as I saw it I knew I needed it, it's the most perfect product to add to my professional makeup kit. Unfortunately at £185 it is WELL out of my price range but I'm hooping it will be a little bit cheaper in the USA, fingers crossed.

MAC Face and Body

I always use this foundation in my makeup kit, I love how it looks on other people, hate how it looks on me but for other people it always seems to look perfect and obviously MAC is so much cheaper in the USA so I can't leave without picking up a few bottles.

MAC Strobe Cream

Again this is a must have product for any makeup artist kit, I absolutely love it.

Nike AirMax 1/ Roshe Runs

I  have wanted a pair of Nike trainers for the longest time but with them being so expensive in the UK I just can't afford them, I am a student after all, with them being so much cheaper in the USA I hope to pick up a couple of nice pairs, plus they would be absolutely perfect for walking round the theme parks.

Illamasqua Hydra Veil

Again this is a product that is absolutely raved about in the blogging world and I really want to try it out. I may need to pick up a hydra veil for my professional kit and a matte veil for myself.

Illamasqua Skin Base

I really want the skin base in the white colour so I can mix it with other foundations to make it match my skin because as we all know I am milk bottle pale and most brands foundations are FAR too dark for me. 

Guerlain Meteorites Pearls

This was definitely a very late addition to my list but after talking to some lovely bloggers last night I knew it had to be added, it looks absolutely stunning and supposedly smells gorgeous too.

After doing this post it has made me even more excited. I CANT WAIT.

If there's any products I have left out that you think I should try please leave them in the comments bellow.
