For beauty lovers Sephora is a little bit like a one stop shop for many a beauty product. Especially if like me you live in the UK and don’t often get the chance to go to their actual stores! I mean why aren’t they open here in the UK? Please Sephora! Take my money, I beg of you! For me Sephora is like a beauty addicts heaven! I’m not even exaggerating, I am obsessed with the brands they carry, not to mention their own range. I can’t get enough. Can you imagine if they were open over here in the UK, I’d be forever poor for giving them all of my money! I decided it was high time I paid them a visit and had a little online splurge!! I love a haul post, particularly a beauty one, even more so a Sephora beauty one! In my add to cart frenzy, here are some of the goodies I snagged!
Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette
I mean talk about a palette of dreams! Seriously, what more would you want in a palette other than self refilling pans every time you hit the bottom! Its a truly beautiful palette, so well put together right down to its packaging. Anastasia and Norvina certainly pulled it out of the bag with this one! I cannot wait to see what else they have in store for us!
Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick
Pure Hollywood, described as a pale mauve nude is one of my favourite shades in the range, it suits my skintone beautifully if I do say so myself, grabbed myself a duplicate to keep me going.
Veronica, described as a taupe mauve is a gorgeous cool tone colour, I love it on it’s so pretty!
I love the ABH liquid lips, they are so long wearing you rarely have to re-apply. They have a gorgeous shade selection. I will definitely continue to grow my current collection.
Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick – Bow N Arrow
One of the more well known shades from the KVD line and its easy to see why, it is a beautiful fawn nude that would suit most skin tones. I’ve been meaning to get my hands on this for some time and finally I have. Mission complete, but now I want to get more. Fortunately her range can be sourced from UK retailers. Yaaaasss! Totally digressing but I really must get the white concealer too! Hi under eye highlight! I see you.
IT Cosmetics Your Skin But better CC Cream SPF50
I wanted this for a long while but I struggled to find a way which didn’t cost the Earth to get this over to the UK. Finally it is now available on Sephora! Yay!! I’ve not tried this yet but I can’t wait to use it, I love that it is has such a high SPF included, the perfect summer natural foundation.
IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores
This powder does exactly as it says on the tin, it magically makes your pores looks totally none existent when you sweep it over your skin. Its a fine powder that blends into the skin so effortlessly!
Clinique Cheek Pop Nude Pop
Correct me if I’m wrong but to my knowledge this particular shade isn’t available here in the UK, or at least I’d been unable to find it. I love a nice nude, natural coloured blush and I already have a couple of other shades from the Cheek Pop collection, as soon as I saw there was a Nude Pop, it was a swift click on the add to cart button. I love it even more now that its here.
Both nudes, obviously because what other shade would I wear. I think I need to branch out and wear more shades! Child Star is the lighter nude of the two, Cool Girl is a slightly deeper nude. I’m quite fair-skinned so they show a little darker than a nude against my skintone. They feel so comfortable on and as most liquid lips they boast a long wear time, plus the packaging is kinda fun too.
Tarte Tartiest Lip Paint Namaste
This is a beautiful nude shade. Infact most of the lip colours on this haul are, but hey, I’m a nude kinda gal, what can I say. This is a nice creamy formula which I don’t find drying at all. It lasts all day with little need to re-apply. I only wish I ordered more shades. Next time.
Sephora Lipstick No.10 Miss You
One of my most used daily lipsticks is from the Sephora line and I love it, its a rich creamy formula which moisturises my lips all day. I picked up a different shade within the nude family in keeping with the colour theme of this haul.
Sephora Lipgloss 04 Perfect Nude
What is a nice nude lipstick without a nice gloss to go with? I picked up a true nude gloss to pair perfectly with all of my nudes. God know I have plenty!
Sephora Eye Kohl 07 Infinite Beige
I like the principle behind a while eye kohl on the waterline to brighten, but on me I feel like I look a bit odd, I thought a nude kohl would be the happy medium I was looking for and as it turns out I was right. The product is of a nice creamy texture so it applies to the eye easily and I find it to be long-lasting and it really brightens and opens my eye up by taking this simple step. I hedged my bets on this by ordering a couple, fortunately I was right to do so as I really like how looks.
I’d been eyeing this up for a little while and this brand is only available via Sephora and their own site which both ship from America so as I was shopping with Sephora it made perfect sense to snag this exfoliator. Its made up with rice enzyme and it is gentle to the skin, it doesn’t contain any harsh particles which can be highly abrasive to our skin. I love how clean and fresh my skin looks and feels after using this. I definitely plan to repurchased, it also makes me want to try other products from their range.
Sunday Riley Tidal Brightening Enzyme Water Cream
Tidal promises to deliver an intense water drench with two forms of hyaluronic acid and tamarind extract so your skin looks youthfully hydrated and plumped. Papaya enzymes smooth and exfoliate while alpha-arbutin isibly brightens the appearance of hyperpigmentation and dark spots. Tidal increases hydration by up to 68 percent in as little as 15 minutes for up to 24 hours of continuous moisture. This description combined with reading glowing reviews and already having a love for brand solidified my resolve to get my hands on this. I’m yet to try it but I fully expect to love it as much as the other Sunday Riley products I use.
Tarte Frixxion Stick
I first noticed this when Tarte promoted it a lot when it first launched and I was intrigued. I like the idea of it, basically its a solid stick that you twist up and then you swipe it on the main parts of your face, dampen your hands and massage in to exfoliate. Its nice and easy to carry away on a trip being a solid product. I like it once its on, I find it harsh when I initially swipe it on my skin, I could be too heavy handed which might be the problem.
