While in France I always have to track down a Sephora (it's a necessity!), they are amazing, packed full of high quality brands of cosmetics and skin care and for fairly reasonable prices. Like I've said in previous posts I am like a child in a sweet shop when it comes to shopping for cosmetics! So this time I dragged my poor hubby round several, every time we visited somewhere I managed to find a Sephora!
So as you can see in the picture below I did come back with a few extra items of make up which I was very pleased with!
So what did I buy?
Nars Blush in Orgasm: Oh my god how I have not had this product in my life before?!! It is a gorgeous pink blush crammed full of shimmer particles that is simply gorgeous when worn. Love, love, love!
Givenchy Le Prisme Eye Quad: This is a super cute eyeshadow quad featuring four pretty shimmery shades. Nestled underneath the palette is a little draw that you pull out to reveal some teeny tiny little eyshadow brushes. As soon as I picked it up I couldn't put it down, it had to come home with me! Plus it was in the sale which was even better!
Next I chose a new Primer and with being a lip balm obsessive I had to buy one to test it out! I do seem to have quite a collection of primers now and I haven't quite decided which one I prefer, this one is lovely though and gives a fantastic base before applying foundation. The lip balm is really nice and moisturising so a nice addition to my little stash!
I naturally had to buy a nail polish while I was there and I picked up a fab Nails Inc Polish in St. James Park which was also in the sale, it practically jumped into my basket! It's a gorgeous colour, I've been wearing it loads already since I've been home.
I also picked up some Quick Dry Nail Oil as I've been wanting to dry it for ages, the reason I have two is I dropped the first one on the floor spilling about 1/4 of the bottle and I ended up loving it so much I thought I better stock in case my clumsiness strikes again. I also picked up a pot of Express Nail Polish Remover, I am big fan of these little pots that remove nail polish quickly, I also find that they leave my nails feel really moisturised too. I also grabbed a Nail Polish Corrector Pen, these are so handy to tidy up any little messes or mistakes once I've painted my nails, a must have!
Lastly I picked up a little bottle of Bumble and Bumble Hair Oil this is a great product and a little goes a long way, I can already see a difference in the dry areas of my hair and with continued use think it will be really beneficial to my hair. Lastly I also picked up a little Sephora Fragrance Spritzer and this was in the sale for about 3 Euros, it smells gorgeous and is perfect for popping in the pocket of my work uniform to give myself a quick spray to freshen up!
I am already having Sephora withdrawal symptoms!! Roll on my next visit to France so I can stock up again on some 'essentials'!
