In England we don’t have Sephora (Booo) so any opportunity to get my hands on some Sephora goodies I jump at the chance. Milan has Sephora (excited squeal) and as soon as we got off the train there was a Sephora I instantly made a mental shopping list of things I wanted to get my hands on! And thennnn my mum was going to America so I sent her a cheeky little list of things to get too!!
Firstly in Milan I was able to get my hands on the Make up forever Ultra HD foundation. Now this foundation is something I have heard a lot about already and I am one of those girls that would rather spend a fortune on good foundation than anything else because personally, I feel that good skin makes the whole look. This foundation was pricey at 40 Euros so about 30 something pounds. Honestly, I don’t know how I feel about this foundation. People rave about this product a lot but I just don’t feel so keen. So this is a very light foundation it applies very lightly to the skin and then throughout the day it dries the skin out quite a lot. I feel like this foundation cannot be applied on top of itself as well so a top up throughout the day is not a good idea and where it dries out it kind of looks a bit flakey? Basically Im not sure whats going on, maybe I will like it more with time but right now I’m not a massive fan, although Im still going to be using it!
The next item from Milan was the Sephora Beauty Amplifier. This is a complete white shade. This item again is a bit strange I haven’t used one before but thought I would give it a go and I am really happy with this! I have been applying this gently under the eyes and in the centre of my forehead. I feel like this product really does brighten the areas I intend it to and it has such a brilliant finish!
Whilst my mum was in America she managed to get her hands on the new Marc Jacobs lipstick and a Marc Jacobs black liner. To start this liner is something else. It is honestly like black glue, except not sticky! If you use this I can promise you this is not going to budge. I applied this to my hand just to look at the texture of it and it WOULD NOT go! No matter how much I washed it off! The lipstick is a beautiful smooth texture and just as beautiful rose red shade. I have never had anything Marc Jacobs before but I cannot wait to get my hands on some other items from their make up range.
Then I got the Becca illuminator. Now I haven’t actually heard of the brand Becca before and I have never tried their items. I actually asked my mum to get me the Anastasia beverly hills illuminator but they didn’t have it and actually I’m so happy with this Becca product. The colour is amazing it literally leaves the skin looking bright and glowing and I am officially obsessed.
It is such a gorgeous silver shade and I cannot wait for the summer to get hotter as this will be perfect for the warmer months! I also love the compact mirror it comes with as this is so handy so have in my bag at all times!
Finally, a Glam Glow face mask! I wanted to go into more detail with this so keep your eyes peeled for a full review on this product in the future!
I hope you like the items I got in Sephoras across the world! Do you have any other items you would recommend that I could try and get my hands on when I go to Mexico in the next few weeks?
