Hello my lovelies,
So I recently went on a trip to Paris, it was truly magical and I fell completely in love with the Parisian culture. The architecture was just beautiful and I was truly taken aback. I did everything from trying snails to going to the top of the Eiffel Tower and I loved every moment. Obviously I soon realised when the trip was booked that I would be able to FINALLY visit a Sephora. I have wanted to visit Sephora for the longest time so I knew while I was in Paris I would obviously take a trip there, or two..
I was taken aback by the store, I mean I expected it to be full of goodies but my oh my it was heaven. I didn’t know where to look or what to get my hands on. The first Sephora store I went into I didn’t actually come out with an awful lot because I was just spoilt for choice and I got far too overwhelmed. When I left the store I had a long hard think about what I wanted to pick up so I went into a different store and picked up some serious goodies – I cannot wait to try them out!
Sephora – Grey Clay Mask see here
I couldn’t go to Sephora without trying their face masks! I have heard so many good things about them I just knew I needed to pick up a few. The first one I picked up was the Grey Clay Mask. Clay masks are by far my favourite masks to use. For my skin being oily I much prefer a mask that is going to suck some of the moisture out and clear out my pores. This says it has 4 uses in the packet so I’ll be sure to let you know what I think.
Sephora – Cream Lip Stains in 03 Strawberry Kissed and 13 Marvelous Mauve see here
Another product that I just knew I needed to pick up, I was spoilt for choice on the shades I didn’t realise how many they had! In the end I chose a beautiful red and a mauve shade which I am in love with. I am so excited to try this out especially being a massive liquid lipstick lover. Let’s hope they live up to their expectations!
Sephora – Supreme Cleansing Oil see here
I have never tried a cleansing oil before, I’m not really to sure why but I have never been drawn to any. I saw this in the skincare section and decided to try it out, what’s the harm right. I will admit as soon as I brought this I tried it out because I was so intrigued by it. On first impressions I blooming love it – why have I never tried one before!? I feel like this is going to last me ages because a little truly goes a long way! I will be doing a full review on this why I have tried it out a little more don’t you worry.
Benefit – GALifornia Blush see here
I have actually wanted this blush for the longest time and for whatever reason I have never picked it up here in the UK. When I was walking to the till, I saw the mini version and I just knew I needed to pick it up. There is something that really is so captivating for a product to be a mini. I have no idea why but I wanted to buy all the mini’s they are just so god damn cute!
Original Beauty Blender – see here
I needed a new one of these as my few I have are currently on their last legs and again I saw this at the till and picked it up. I just don’t think I have tried a different beauty blender that really does do the job as good as this one.
Sephora – Algae Face Mask see here
Another face mask, I know I just knew even before I went to Paris that I wanted to try out their face masks. Purifying and detoxifying – perfect! My skin has not been brilliant recently so I am hoping this will help to bring my skin back to normal. I always feel with travelling your skin feels worse anyway so I will be trying this pretty soon!
Sephora – Triple Action Gentle Make Up Remover Gel
For whatever reason I can’t find this on the Sephora website – sorry guys! Now I have tried micellar waters and cleansers but never a gel. When in Sephora I just thought what’s the harm in trying this little baby out. I will be sure to reviewing this as it isn’t something I have come across before, keep your eyes peeled!
BECCA – Glow on the Go Shimmering Skin Perfector, Opal see here
I knew I wanted to get the shimmering skin perfecter in Opal for the longest time as I absolutely adore my Champagne Pop shade. I nearly picked this up days before I went to Paris but thought, no I’ll get it while I am out there and I did! I love this little set as I also get to try out the liquid version – win win in my eyes!
Sephora – Green Tea Face Mask see here
My last face mask I promise! As I mentioned I have not had the best of time with my skin especially with blemishes so this one is right up my street – Mattifying & Anti Blemish. Let’s hope it sorts my skin out. Slightly annoyed that if it works I will have to wait a long period of time to get this again..
I also received a few testers which includes: Rexaline Derma – Comfort Cream, L’Envol de Cartier Eau De Toilette, Twilly d’Hermes Eau De Parfum and Chanel’s Coco Mademoiselle Eau De Parfum.
That’s all folks – I had the best experience and I am so excited to try all these products out! I will be writing a review on some of these products to let you know my thoughts, keep your eyes peeled!
