When you go will you bring back ....some makeup from America

We are having a little New York appreciation week here at Emeraldeyeliner.. and who doesn't love New York?
When Sile was recently getting ready to leave for New York she asked me did I want anything, having been the soldier who has taken lists off people and had a nervious break down outside J&R Electronics over said lists I was hesitant about asking her for anything.  So I said "no you look after yourself" as I slid a War and Peace ammount of print outs in her direction.  Being the doll that Sile is she arrived home with a ton of goodies for moi! Now before you say anything I was very careful to make sure these were all items that I could not get my hands on over here.
So here is the "Stuff wot Sile got me in New York"
I have heard great things about Wet & Wild eyeshadow palettes. They are supposed to be "super pigmented" and excellent quality
Milani is a brand that I wish we had in Ireland. I asked for two Baked Blushes; Rose D'oro which is supposed to be a dupe for MAC's Stereo Rose, and Luminoso.  I cant say if Rose D'oro is a Stereo Rose dupe but the blushes are beautiful, highly pigmented soft and smooth. I want more Milani in my life STAT. The magpies out there will also notice the Nail Polish in Jewel FX Gem.
Sure you can't go to America without getting some American drugs. I expect this to knock out migraines like a blow to the head with a hammer and while I am unconscious I can add my new Wet N Wild eyelash growth serum.
I love Tarte Cosmetics - they are one of the companies that are good to nature while making me glam. Sephora does great value sets and Sile picked me up this one which has:
Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Glisten (golden peachy pink with gold shimmer)
Provocateur Amazonian Clay Shimmering Powder in Champagne (golden champagne sheen)
Smooth Operator™ Amazonian Clay Illuminating Serum
LipSurgence™ Natural Lip Luster in Sweet (golden pink)
The Bright Side Double-Ended Eye Brightener (day - shimmering champagne/ night - shimmering pink)

I have been mad to try the Amazonian Blushes and the Lip Surgences, both of which I love.
Another brand that I cant get my sticky fingers on in Ireland is Lorac and Sile picked me up a set which contains:

Starry-Eyed Baked Eye Shadow Trio in LORAC star
Front Of The Line Pro in Black
Multiplex 3D Lashes Mascara in Black
Blush in Soul
Couture Shine Liquid Lipstick in Trend Setter
Tutorial Look Book
This set is amazing value and I am really impressed with it

Anybody that knows me know that I LOVE WATER, I always have a bottle around (my water bottle is responsible for my username Actionmags) and Sile picked me up this massive (in size and gorgeousness) bottle from Victoria Secret.

I think this proves that I am a greedy guts and that Sile is a brilliant friend.  I know its probably a case of the grass is always greener but I would love if these brands were easily available.  Have you tried any of these brands? What brands would you love to use but cant get your hands on?

  1. This post is so, so funny.

    That song is stuck in my noggin now too!

    I haven't tried any of 'em but could really get behind a plan of beauty treatments once I've knocked myself unconscious on jugs :)

  2. 4 of my lemmings are in this post...3 of them are Milanis... The other one is by Victoria Secret*sigh*
    I've tried some WnW palettes and they're amazing!
    I'd also love to try some Lush but nooo, they won't come here.
    Thanks for sharing!
