A few years back I headed to New York and Los Angeles. America is one place I would highly recommend going to, especially if you’re a makeup lover!
New York is known as the city that never sleeps, which mind you I have never seen anything like it. It really lives up to its word. Have you ever been stuck behind someone in a shopping centre walking so slow and waiting for the right time to pass them? This is New York all day, everyday. By the end of the trip I guarantee you have nailed the skill of dodging anything in your way.
Times Square Sephora was my first stop, after a few hours and my week’s spending money – not even joking! I was one happy girl. This place is the definition of ‘makeup heaven’ and the Australian one doesn’t even compare. After many attempts during the week of trying to go into the MAC shop at Times Square, it wasn’t possible – I have never seen so many people in a MAC shop before! I swear they were all Australian… when a lipstick is cheap you get as many as you can.
Next stop Los Angeles, after being in New York for a week, LA feels so peaceful and a place where you can breath. No dodging required. I didn’t do much shopping in LA, but I did find a MAC store at The Grove. When I went to pay at the counter for all my products, the lady did say ‘you must be from Australia’. Who doesn’t buy bulk makeup when it’s that cheap?
Besides the shopping, America is an amazing place and an eye-opener. I would go back in a heartbeat!
