Vacation Beauty Haul

Revlon Lip Butters in Red Velvet and Strawberry Shortcake - CoverGirl LipPerfection Lipstick in 305 Hot Passion

The supermarkets at the Dominican Republic have a lot more makeup stands than most department stores here (CoverGirl? Milani? A whole stand of Revlon? Count me in!) Needless to say, I went a bit crazy and had to be restrained not to buy everything in sight. And I know I'm late to the lip butter bandwagon, but here they're ridiculously expensive and only four colours are available. 

 

 OPI Nail Polish in Do You Lilac It?

Rubinesque Paintpot - MAC 217 Blending Brush - Rebel Lipglass -MAC Cleanse Off Oil

And last but certainly not least, I did some damage at MAC. Now, this is more than I've ever spent in makeup, but I justified it because MAC is ridiculously expensive here and in the DR the prices were as near as the US ones that I could get. I actually wanted to get Rebel in lipstick form, but the lady at the counter said that they hadn't been stocking that for a long time.

Do you tend to spend more money on things for yourself when you're on holiday? (I know I do!)
