San Francisco Shopping Haul

sfhaul4

My trip to San Francisco was amazing: what a lovely city with friendly and relaxed people, great food, and super sights. Besides the obvious attractions (Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, Fisherman’s Wharf etc), I also spend a day shopping. I just wanted to share my haul with you in brief: you can find the full names/colours of all products underneath the photos. Full reviews of all of these products will be published on the blog once I have had time to properly test the products.


Mijn vakantie in San Francisco was geweldig: een mooie stad met vriendelijke en ontspannen inwoners, geweldig voedsel, en leuke attracties. Behalve de bekende uitjes (Golden Gate brug, Alcatraz, Fisherman’s Wharf etc), ben ik ook een dagje wezen winkelen. Ik wilde jullie even mijn vondsten laten zien: je kunt de volledige namen en kleuren van de producten onder de foto’s vinden. Een volledige review van al deze producten zullen hier op het blog gepubliceerd worden zodra ik ze allemaal goed heb kunnen testen.

I really wanted to pick up the famous Sheer Glow foundation by Nars and had an excellent experience at the NARS counter being aided by a professional artist. I picked up the sheer glow in Light 4 Deauville, the Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer in Light 1 Finland, the Contour Blush in Olympia, the Radiant Creamy Concealer in Light 3 Honey, and the Brow Gel in Athens.


Ik was erg benieuwd naar de befaamde Sheer Glow foundation van Nars en werd geweldig geholpen bij de NARS afdeling door een professionele make-up artiest. Ik koos voor deΒ sheer glow in Light 4 Deauville, de Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer in Light 1 Finland, de Contour Blush in Olympia, de Radiant Creamy Concealer in Light 3 Honey, en de Brow Gel in Athens.

Two repurchases are the Sephora Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover and the MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Light Plus. The packaging of the latter has been updated, finally featuring a mirror so the compact is much more convenient in your handbag. I grabbed a jar of Clinique’s Take the day off cleasing balm after reading some rave reviews, which came with a luxury sample of their new Β Clinique Smart Custom-Repair serum. Another cult product is the Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion, really looking forward to trying it.


Twee her-aankopen zijn de Sephora Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover en de MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Light Plus. De verpakking van het laatste product is eindelijk aangepast met een spiegel, zodat het veel makkelijk mee te nemen is in je handtas. Na het lezen van een aantal super reviews heb ik ook een pot van Clinique’s Take the day off cleansing balm gekocht. Daarbij kreeg ik een luxe tester van de nieuwe Clinique Smart Custom-Repair serum. Een ander cult product is de Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion, ik kan niet wachten om deze te proberen.

Oh Essie…even cheaper in the States, making it even more difficult for me to get past their display. I picked up three nail care products and two pretty colours. The Apricot Cuticle Oil is new for me and I cannot wait to try it. The Grow Stronger base coat and Good to Go topcoat are tried and tested favourites. I also picked up cherry red Fishnet Stockings and mint green Fashion Playground.


Oh Essie… nog goedkoper in Amerika, waardoor het nog moeilijker word om langs de display te lopen. Ik kocht drie verzorgingsproducten en twee mooie kleurtjes. De Apricot Cuticle Oil heb ik nog nooit eerder geprobeerd: ik ben benieuwd. De Grow Stronger basecoat en de Good to Go topcoat zijn bekende favorieten. Ik koos ook voor de kersenrode Fishnet Stockings en de mintgroene Fashion Playground.

      Confession time: they are still in their packaging. I have this weird little beauty habit of leaving the luxury stuff in their packaging until it is ‘the right time to use them’. I just enjoy looking at the pretty boxes when I open my cupboard :S …

    I can’t believe you were in San Francisco. You were so close to me. I live in Seattle, Wa and my husband and I honeymooned in San Francisco. We wanted to be in a city that wasn’t to far from home. We’ve been back several times.

    This beauty haul is fun. I’m excited to hear your reviews.

      Oh, I have heard great stories about Seattle as well πŸ™‚ Must be a great place to live?!
      SF is just such a relaxed city, I can imagine you would visit often if you are that close πŸ˜€

        I love Seattle. It’s a lot of fun but has gotten over crowded.

        On the occasions when we have visited San Francisco, we found that a lot of people have lived in both cites. People tend to like both.

        The plane ride is under 2 hrs from Seattle. So it’s just a hop, skip, and a jump. πŸ˜€

          Well, if Seattle is anything like SF I am sure I would love it there. And so nice and close to lots of great cities πŸ˜€

          Yeah, it isn’t the cheapest. Which is why I am still in the “staring at the pretty packaging and saving it for a special occasion” mode. Will write a review as soon as I have started using it πŸ˜€
