Sephora Makeup Haul
I recently went to New York City for a girls holiday. This meant seeing sights, going out for food and of course shopping!
We were all very excited about Sephora as we don't have any stores currently in the UK.
I saved up my pennies knowing this would be the one shop I would go a tad crazy in! So i thought I would share with you all my haul:
The 'Tartlette in Bloom Palette' from Tarte Cosmetics.
This palette is so stunning! I avoided it to begin with as I own far too much eyeshadow, but it was calling to me and eventually I could not resist.
The shadows are mostly matte with a few shimmers, they are all so creamy, pigmented and easy to use.
My current favourites are:
Rebel (Matte) - A dusty rose shade
Leader (Matte) - A aubergine shade (great alternative crease colour.)
Firecracker (shimmer) - This is an coral/pink shimmer shade ever so pretty!
The 'Shade and Light Palette' from Kat Von D Beauty. I knew I wanted this before we had even arrived. Contouring is something I want to get into and this palette has had great reviews!
The top row are your highlighting shades and the bottom row consists of the sculpting shades.
I have really pale skin and these powders go really well with my skin tone! When can we have Kat Von D cosmetics in the UK!?
Also from Kat Von D beauty I got this mini ink liner trio it comes with three different colours:
- Trooper (Black)
- Baudelaire (a Navy Blue)
- Hemingway (Brown)
I swatched the black liner on my hand in store and it stayed on there for at least 3 days! I was a sucker for the navy blue shade so this mini kit was ideal!
The final purchase from Kat Von D beauty was the 'Everlasting Liquid Lipstick' in the shade 'Lolita II' this shade is such a pretty coral/nude and it really does last!
Next up from NARS was a blush in the shade 'orgasm' I've heard so much hype around this blush and that it suits almost everybody so into my basket it went.
All the products below were purchased on advice from the person that served me in Sephora. I was looking for a foundation with a fuller coverage that would be fine on my dry skin. From this conversation I ended up with two primers, a foundation and a powder.
The two primers I got were both from Smashbox one was the 'Primer Water' and the other the 'Primer Oil'. The oil I would use underneath the foundation as it would help with my dry skin and not cause breakouts and the primer water would be used as a setting spray of sorts.
Next the Foundation which I got from Make Up Forever HD. I have only tried this on in store so far, I can't bring myself to use it just yet as it's so new! I will give you all an update of whether it is worth a purchase.
Finally the only product I got from the Sephora range was this powder in clair/light which I am supposed to use on top of the foundation to complete the look.
So there you have my Sephora haul, as you can see I went a tad crazy but it was all so pretty!
Have you been to Sephora before? What were your favourite products?
