It’s finally time to show you the goodies I picked up in New York! I went to so many Sephoras, I just love the place – and the free Wifi keeps Jordan entertained for hours.
I didn’t have a list or anything, I was kind just going with it – if I saw something I fancied, I’d give it a whirl. And… well, quite a lot took my fancy!
Tatcha Luminous Dewy Skin Mist; I hadn’t heard of this brand before, but something drew me to the pretty packaging and I treated myself to the skin mist – although now I wish I’d bought more. So much more.
My skin was so parched from the cold weather, and so I went for this thinking it would make my skin a little more comfortable. It did that and so much, delivering an ultra-fine mist of dewy ingredients! I’ve never tried anything like this before, I was expecting a refreshing water that feels instantly relieving but kind of drying in the long run. Nope! This leaves my complexion looking glorious, and my skin felt comfortably hydrated at all times. Full review on its way.
Too Faced Hangover Face Primer; For some reason, Too Faced are a brand I never really buy when I’m in the UK – I’m pretty sure the only products I have from the brand are from the US! Anyway, I had to have this stuff – it just sounded amazing. It boosts hydration and radiance, delivering coconut water to the skin for a rush of energy that perks up the complexion.
It feels beautiful to apply and really works wonders in an instant.
Verb Dry Shampoo; I picked this up on a whim, as my hair needed a bit of volume and I hadn’t taken anything with me to help. It was probably the packaging that swayed me, but the product itself is pretty awesome. The pointed nozzle means it’s easy to get right down to the roots, and the powder doesn’t leave hair looking grey. Win!
Sephora Teint Infusion Ethereal Natural Finish Foundation; This was my first experience of a Sephora base, and all I can say is wow. This is the foundation of my dreams – it’s light, blends beautifully, conceals imperfections and leaves skin looking naturally radiant. It’s still early days for a foundation, but I know I’m on to a winner here!
NARS Sin Blush; my love for Nars makeup just won’t die down, and so I ended up with two new products in my possession this trip. The first, Sin blush – a dreamy blue-toned berry pink, with a hint of golden shimmer that perfects the cheeks and promises the most flattering of flushes. I’m hooked on this stuff!
NARS Silk Road Eyeshadow Duo; I’ve got quite the collection of NARS eyeshadows now, as I really do think they’re the best, but my stash was missing Silk Road! I’m not sure if this duo is only available in the US, because I’ve never been able to get it here, but it’s so pretty! A shimmery couple of colours that works with all skin tones.
Burberry Cashmere Concealer; Another favourite find of mine was this Burberry concealer, complete with super soft sponge application for maximum coverage, and oh so blendable finish. This is capable of concealing just about anything, and it looks so natural on the skin. I use it under and over foundation, and it always delivers!
Anastasia Brow Powder Duo; I added this to my basket on a whim, and I’m still on the fence about it. I wanted to try something new for my brows, but I don’t think a powder is really what I wanted. It’s a bit hard, making application slightly tricky, and it does take a bit of effort to make brows look natural. Nonetheless, I’m willing to persevere! Expect an update soon, brow lovers!
Sephora Cream Lip Stain in Blackberry Sorbet; What’s a trip to Sephora without picking up one of these lovelies? These are some of my favourite lip products, and I really wanted a deep berry shade for winter. I haven’t really been able to wear this yet, thanks to super dry lips, but I’m determined to crack it out soon. Just look at that colour!
Kat Von D Tattoo Liner; I was told this is the liner to buy, it’s cult status is what sold me on this! I just had to see what all the fuss what about. I quite like the nib, but it seems to dry to apply fluidly – I’m not sure if I got a dud, but it didn’t live up to the hype for me! I have gone back to my £1.99 Collection liner instead… eep! Did I get unlucky here?!
Sigh. Sephora I love you. What do you think of my buys?
