NYC Haul !

THE Haul <3
Sorry for the short hiatus! I was in NYC for 10 days of just vacation and to visit some family ^_^ However, I couldn't resist myself from shopping... I also bought some clothing and bags, but for this post, I'm just gonna concentrate on these items. I had so much fun on my trip and it was probably one of the best times I've ever had in a long long time. I went shopping like everyday and it was just super fun exploring NYC: day and night. The best thing was probably the FOOD, mmm <3 I miss NY already! I think after this haul, I won't be needing anything for a while! Let's break this haul down!
Going to Mitsuwa, I picked up some Japanese magazines <3 I just love looking at the pictures and following the tutorials! Two of the magazines came with complementary bags: Betsey Johnson and a clear plastic pouch with cherry prints. -Sorry I can't post scans of the magazines because I don't have a scanner...-
Skincare Products
 MyBeautyDiary "Strawberry Yogurt Amino Acid Cleanser"
Organic Toner
DHC "Facial Scrub"
DHC "Mild Touch Cleansing Oil"
Too bad I didn't have any more room in my luggage, I would have bought so many more skincare items....But when I got home, I looked at my stash of back-ups and I was like 'uh-oh!' I am really really happy with these products because most of them are highly raved and they seem pretty amazing to me as well. 

 MyScheming "Herbal Anti-Acne Mask"
MyBeautyDiary "Earl Grey Tea & Macaron Sheet Mask"
I knew I said no more masks... but I just had to get these two! One I got for acne and the other was just too cute to turn down. I can't wait to try these out to see if they work! I am so mask crazy....  
 Kanebo Kracie "Oil Blotting Paper Hyaluronic Acid"
Koji Linqueen "1 Day Long Lasting Eyeliner"
Lioele "Blooming Gloss"
That's all I got make-up wise, surprisingly they didn't have a lot of make-up products! Most of the gift shops carried skincare items and just a little make-up products. However, I did see some DollyWink and other well-known Asian brands! Maybe if I like these items, I'll get some more things when I'm back in NYC ^_^
Wire head-band
Pink bow clip
Leopard print bow clip
Bow butterfly clip
Gold bow earrings with pink stones 
There were so many little Asian gift places packed with so many goodies! Everything was just so cute and I managed to control myself to these few things :) The first thing I thought about getting was one of those wire head bands because they are super cute and in right now. I also got two little bow clips and a small bow butterfly clip. The earrings I got in SoHo from a street vendor; she hand-makes everything and I just love these ^_^ (I also picked up a pair of champagne color crystal earring for my mom.)
Facial Scrub 
Mini Shower Basket
Black Fringe Holder
Bear Contact Lens Case
I have been lemming that silicon facial scrubber for ages! I've heard sooooo many good things about it and I finally found it at Mitsuwa and I grabbed two ^_^ I got a black fringe holder so I could wear it at the gym without notice, like the pink one... I also grabbed a lens case for my friend, N got her first pair of circle lens!
The sale ladies were very nice and gave me a whole pack of samples! I really can't wait to try them out ^_^

All of these products are still very new to me, so if you've used these items before, please let me know what you think about them! If you have any questions about these products, just comment below as well! I will try to get reviews up ASAP ^_^
