What's in my Macy's Shopping Bag

Saturday, August 27, 2016

I have been sitting here on a Saturday, browsing online, and randomly adding things to my cart. "Black Friday Is Coming" and I am slowly making my wishlist.

I have never shopped from Macy's, but I have shopped from Sephora and Nordstrom (I even got my Nordstrom order shipped to India through ShipoutfromUSA). The main reasons, why I chose Macy's to build this wishlist are:

  • Sephora doesn't ship to forwarding addresses.
  • Macy's had a better offer on Clarisonic Mia 2.

Anastasia Liquid Lipstick in Kathryn l $20 (INR1400) l Link 


I wanted to try the Anastasia liquid lipstick formula for the longest time; the opportunity never came as I was not a big fan of liquid lipsticks in general. I have been having a U-turn with liquid lipsticks lately, primarily because they are long wearing, meaning I don't have to touch up. Since my new found love, I have tried KVD, Bonjour, Colourpop, HudaBeauty and I realised that I prefer more of a thick formula like Colourpop. I am super excited to try ABH liquid lipsticks!

Tarte Tartelette Tease Eyeshadow Palette l $21 (INR 1470) l Link 

I want to hold a giveaway for my readers in the future and what better way to treat my readers than picking up an international brand that is not available in India. I had picked out Stila "Lips are sealed" Liquid lipstick set (link) and as I was searching, I found the Tarte eyeshadow palette, it is a perfect size for travel, and consists of 6 everyday neutral shades that most people love.

Clarisonic Mia 2 Garden Party Skin Cleansing System l $99 (INR 7000) l Link 

The "thing" that started it all, I am pretty gung-ho about skincare lately, and I wanted the Clarisonic skin cleansing system to deep clean my face once in a week. I wanted Mia 2, as it supported two speeds (Universal speed for daily cleansing and Delicate speed for sensitive skin) unlike Mia 1 which supports only 1 speed. Now, this is where it get's interesting, Clarisonic Mia 2 is available on Nordstrom website (link) for $129  whereas on the Macy's  website I will get additional brush head and cleanser all for $99, which I think is a super awesome deal.

Urban Decay Lipsticks Hitchhike, Ravenswood and Afterdark l $17 (INR 1190) l Link 

Urban Decay recently came out with whopping 100 shades in different finishes, ranging from sheer to ultra-mattes. I own one shade from the Vice-line, Rapture, a cream finish lipstick that I love. I so want to try the comfort matte finish that everyone is raving about. 
Hitchhike looks like an everyday neutral shade (peachy-brown), Ravenswood (reddish-brown), and Afterdark is clearly a side effect of watching TotalMakeupJunkie101.

For swatches of all 100 lipsticks, visit Temptalia.

Note: The shade, Hitchhike is not available on Nordstrom website. 

The rest of the items in my shopping bag are samples.

Brands that are not available at Macy's
  • Hourglass Ambient Dim  Light Lighting Powder (travel size) l $22
  • Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder (travel size) l $25
  • Lorac Mega Pro 3

I might end up picking these three. So, do you have a wishlist?

I am eyeing on that MIA 2 too :P hey and I recently bought KVD Liquid Lipsticks and UD Hitchhike... I liked KVD over Colourpop as it has a thinner formula :P
