Sephora Haul – France 2016

Sorry I’ve been gone so long, I hadn’t quite anticipated how busy I was going to be. I literally only had a week free but I’ve had an amazing time despite the busyness!

For my holiday this year I went to France with my family and I was desperate to visit a Sephora this time as we don’t have it here in the UK, and  I went! It was so cool to go and see what they had and I picked up few bits which I’m going to show you in this post. Get excited for all the Sephora beautifulness *heart eye emojis*

Sephora Sunbleached Filter Eyeshadow Palette

This palette has the most gorgeous colours in it and the eyeshadows have such good pigmentation. There is the perfect mix of shimmers and mattes and I JUST LOVE THIS PALETTE. Not to mention the packaging if beaut too.

Sephora PRO Airbrush #55

I bought this on recommendation from HelloOctober (who if you don’t read or watch on YT, you should) and this is probably the softest brush I’ve ever felt and is perfect for blending in concealer and foundation but also applying bronzer, blush and highlight. A perfect all rounder.

Sephora Cream Lip Stain Watermelon Slice 09

First of all, I love this colour but I didn’t realise how bright it was and I’m not sure if I’m brave enough to wear it. The consistency is really nice and once it’s set it isn’t going anywhere but it is very bright!

Formula X Nail Color Ignite

This is a perfect nail colour for autumn. I love when you can start whipping out the reds and berry purples and this is the perfect berry/wine red. It applies really smoothly too and stays on for about 5 without a topcoat, even longer with one!

I hope you enjoyed reading this post and that it might havegiven you some things to add t your Sephora shopping list!

Thanks for reading!

My Go-To Nails – March 2016

The first nail polish is one from Barry M called Pit Stop. It’s from the Speedy Quick Dry range which definitely lives up to it’s name, they dry super fast which is a win for me because I’m so impatient!  I think the colour is really nice and I’m really into grey tones at the moment. This one is a slightly beigey-grey which is really nice if you want something pale and not too statement. Even without a topcoat this polish lasts for about 5 days without chipping which is really good consider some more expensive nail polishes can’t do that! The finish of this is also really smooth and glossy.

The next nail polish is by Ciate and is called Pillow Fight which I think is a great name! It’s a stormy grey colour with purple undertones and is a lot darker than Pit Stop. This also has a really long staying power and is pretty chip resistant. I’d say unlike Pit Stop that this is more of a statement colour and people always notice it on me (in a good way, I get a lot of compliments). This is more expensive than the Barry M one but is still under £10 so not bad. The finish of this is the same as the Barry M and it’s so glossy! Love it ❤
