The American Hit List

USA Shopping Wishlist

Being the good blogger that I am, as soon as I booked a trip across the pond I began reading up about all the goodies easily available. Obviously the purpose of my trip isn’t purely for shopping, but seeing as I happen to be there, I might as well make the most of it! 

I’ve watched so many haul videos I’ve lost count and made a list of all the places I’m desperate to have a nosey round. Of course Sephora is right at the top of it, and I’m looking forward to treating my nails to a Formula X polish. Or four. I’m also going to try and pick up the Cover FX Custom Cover Drops, which I’ve been dying to try and work out much cheaper over in the US. I’ve heard so many things about American Sephora shops, but their travel sizes are right up there and I’m hoping to pick up some rollerball perfumes, perfect for leaving in your bag. 

The shopping doesn’t end with Sephora though. I plan to hit up Target for Sonia Kashuk and Milani, Bath & Body Works for PocketBac and just have a general mooch around CVS!

I’ll be perfectly honest and admit the majority of my wishlist is beauty related, but if I get chance, I’m hoping to nip into a Kate Spade and have a look at their wallets. With exchange rates being in our favour, they are cheaper over their and seeing as I’ve never had a “nice” purse, it would be a great opportunity to invest!

While I know the main brands I want to have a look at, I’m still pretty new when it comes to overseas shopping. And this is where you come in. I would absolutely love to hear about any of your recommendations. Be it brands, products or shades, I’d love to know what you think I should check out.

I am so excited for this trip and can’t wait to share it with you!


  • Ohhhhhh okay 😀 I travel to the states a couple of times a year. EOS lip balms are SO CHEAP. They're around $2/3 whereas here they're a ridiculous £6. Kat Von D eyeliner is my holy grail. In fact her entire range is amazing. The Lorac Pro palette is also super amazing if you can grab one from Ulta. If you like Bath and Bodyworks sign up to their e-mail and they'll tell you when they have flash sales or special offers ^_^ I highly recommend their candles, just be careful coning home with them you can't leave them in your carry on at security you have to take them out. Their Pocket Bak hand sanitisers are so sweet and smell so yummy. Victorias secret! Their beauty stuff is surprisingly good and it's a lot cheaper! Walmart carry elf, so does a lot of Targets. You can finally see their stuff up close! It's so cheap. Alta own brand nail polish is REALLY good- I'm wearing a shade of theirs right now. it's super chip resistant and long lasting. Hahaha sorry for going on and on, I love it when i get to go shopping over there 😀 xx

  • Milani has some amazing lipsticks, definitely check those out! I hope you have fun over in my neck of the woods 🙂

  • Don't forget to check out Ulta! Its a heaven for beauty bloggers <3
