So when my sister told me she was heading to New York I literally couldn’t contain the excitement thinking of Sephora.I had wanted to purchase some things myself online with Sephora but with delivery etc it can be expensive.
So I had already been saving for a Sephora online shop but when she said she was going I started adding to the list.I hadn’t topped up my own personal makeup kit in a long while and needed some new bits so this was the perfect opertunity.
So off she went for 5 days. It was the longest 5 days of my life. If your a makeup addict you’ll understand.
So let’s get stuck in to what I got. I will put up the $ & € price.
I had researched all the products I wanted in depth, and from what I had heard and read online Kat Von D is a must brand.
A 6 piece palette, 3 shades to highlight & 3 shades to contour. You can also use the powders to set foundations concealers etc. This was the most expensive thing I purchased but well worth it.
When it comes to liquid liners, I’m so fussy and want something that will stay put all day and this does exactly that. I picked it up in Trooper it’s a completely black shade.
Studded Kiss Lipstick – Cathedral
When it comes to lipsticks I am a sucker for packaging. The studded kiss range immediately caught my eye for the amazing packaging. Having said that the reviews of the lipstick where also amazing.
I picked up the shade Cathedral, it’s a matte , browny , rose shade and I have nothing like it in my collection. The colours online where like no other range iv seen before.
I am always on the look out for matte liquid lipsticks, that don’t leave your lips feeling dry and caked. I picked up the shade Lolita in the Everlasting Liquid Lispsticks, and raging I didn’t pick up more as they are amazing.
When it comes to choosing foundation when you can’t be present it’s a thoughie.I was a bit sceptical with this one as to weather to purchase it or not but I went which a tan shade. As it was a full coverage foundation I figured I’d only ever where it on a night out or weekends. So I went with the shade medium 52. Which was the perfect shade to match with the Cocoa Brown 1hr Tan.
I have honestly never used a foundation with such full coverage before its amazing.
Tartelette Amazonian Clay Matte eyeshadow palette. An all matte 12
Piece palette. This palette was one of my favourite purchases, the pigments are unreal and the quality is outstanding.
I also researched all the tarte products before purchasing and the 12 hour blushes where a popular choice. I decided to go for the shade Fearless. It’s a Coral shade with a hint of pink to it.
This is the longest wearing blush I have honestly ever purchased.
Clean Slate 360 Creasless 12hr Eye Primer.
This is a waterproof eye shadows primer that locks the eye shadows in place literally.
It also prevents fallout from any eyeshadow which is the best part about this primer.
This product has been flooded all over the Internet. With You tubers such as Shaaanxo using it and loving it. So I decided it was a must to purchase.
This products allows you to transform your foundation to a more fuller coverage. It can be mixed with moisturiser, oils, cc creams , primers, foundations.
One drop for sheer coverage
Two drops for medium coverage
Three drops for full coverage
4 drops for complete coverage.
I picked up the shade N20 with is for fair to light skin.
I know you can purchase these here in Ireland but for weeks I had tried and they where always sold out. So I decided to add them to my list.
I had heard so many people rave about these and I had read some great reviews so I picked up two darker shades for nights out.
I have to say I absolutely love these and they are the perfect night out foundation. I would have an oily t-zone and thought they wouldn’t suit me. But hands down they lasted for 8 hours with no top up at all.
You could also use these to cream contour.
I couldn’t not pick up any of Sephora’s own brand makeup and decided to go for blushes.
They where cheap and had also got great reviews so I picked up two and they honestly surprised me.
Great pigmentation and longevity. I wish I had picked up more of their own brand products.
As you all know, I am an absolute sucker for packaging and when I seen the packaging for the Too Faced Blushes I caved. As if I needed anymore blushers.
But look how cute this little compact blush is. I was also intrigued by the 16hour statement.
I haven’t worn it for 16 hours yet but so far 10 /11 hours and it’s still perfect.
I picked up the shade ” How Deep is Your Love” . It’s a Watermelon / Pink shade and beautiful on.
All of the elf products below where gifts,
so prices I’m not sure, but they are a very well known, cheap , amazing brand.
It’s my first time trying elf, but beforehand I had heard some amazing things about the range.
The range can’t be bought in Sephora, but it will be advertised for sale all around New York in smaller shops.
