[Beauty] U.S. Beauty Haul

US Beauty Haul

When I got back from my US trip the first thing my friends asked me was, “What makeup stuff were you able to buy?” The moment I heard it I find it so funny because my friends know me so well! 😛


Call me crazy or OC (obsessive-compulsive) but before I fly out I’ve been keeping a list of beauty and skincare products that I’ll check out the moment I landed SF. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to check them all because of schedule constraints. But thank God for CVS and Walgreens because I get to check out drugstore brands and hoard some beauty products! 😛😻

Aside from drugstores, I also had a chance to visit Sephora and Ulta. You may be shocked but I didn’t get to hoard any item from Sephora. 😱😳 My reason for that is TBH I’m usually a cheapskate whenever I’m on travel. When I see a makeup or skincare item that’s more that $20, I usually back off and think hundred times if I really want to purchase the item. LOL!


ANYWAY. I know you’re here to check out which items that I got from my trip. So, here goes! 💖


Most of the makeup items that I bought had awesome reviews on the internet. Among the items that I got the Tarte Shape Tape Concealer was the most expensive and I’m really excited to try it out. The Butter Bronzer from Physicians Formula had a lot raves from the internet so I’m excited to try it as well. Also, I’m super amazed that Wet n Wild beauty products are super cheap in the US! Their tube of lipstick costs around $1.99 (which costs around Php 200) compared to a price of Php 299 here in Manila. Super ah-mazing! 😎

Makeup Tools

I was able to buy EcoTools brush sets in Ulta and Marshalls. I was so delighted that the brush sets are far cheaper compared to when you buy one here in Manila. Also, the e.l.f. eyeshadow brushes costs less than $2. It was definitely a steal and I’m super excited to use them. 🤗


I didn’t splurge much on skincare because honestly I’m more into Asian beauty skincare products. 😛 However, I got curious when I saw this Vitamin C Anti-Aging Serum from SMACKbeauty. I realized my current stash of Vit C Serum is about to run out, so I decided to but this and hopefully this product will be good on my skin. *crosses fingers*

On the other hand, I’ve been hearing a lot of good stuff on CeraVe so I was able to grab a travel size moisturizing cream from Walgreens. I’ll definitely make a review on this once I’ve tried it. 🙂

Hair, Bath, and Perfume

Lastly, I hoarded a couple of Bath & Body Works because I love their scent, especially their shower gels. I was also curious to try out Batiste Dry Shampoo so I was able to buy one. I usually hoard on perfumes and shower gels so that I don’t need to buy every now and then. 😛


And that’s it on my beauty haul from the US! I would have bought more if I stayed longer and if I have LOTS of money! 😝 I’m really excited to try out all of these products. I’ve started using some of them and will definitely update this blog on the things I’ve tried out. Until then! xoxo 😘

    • Thank you! I’ve been looking for a perfect bronzer and lots of beauty gurus are raving on Physician’s Formula 😛 I haven’t used it yet but I swatched it and the texture is sooo buttery. I’m excited to try it out 😀
