NYC | SEPHORA HAUL


I hope you all enjoyed reading my MAC haul from New York, this one is going to be all about the goodies I picked up from Sephora whilst I was over there. I have to say when I first went in there I was like a kid in a candy shop, there was so much make up to look at and test out - I didn't know where to start! This post is a little more varied compared to my MAC one which was mostly lipsticks!

I had a few bits that I knew I definitely wanted to pick up from there and the others were mostly impulse buys!

Too Faced Chocolate Bar Eye Palette - If you read my NYC wish list post you'll know that this one was on there. When I got to Sephora I did contemplate whether or not to buy it as there was so many other eye shadow palettes to choose from! However, if I hadn't have bought I knew I would have regretted it! The selection of colours really is amazing and although you have mostly nudes and browns the purple shades thrown in make the palette pop! Also, the packaging will look so adorable on my dressing table!


Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara - This was a purchase that was kind of an impulse as I knew I wanted to buy a new mascara but wasn't really sure what one. I was looking at the Too Faced ones as i'd heard they were good but never tried them myself. I originally looked at the Better Than False Lashes Extreme Lash Extension set with the lash extensions fibres but I wasn't sure i'd use it enough. Now I'm so glad I bought this one instead, I have been using it for a few days now and it really is amazing! It leaves my lashes full and volumised with impressive length, I have been using it on its own, whereas previously I would use 2-3 different mascaras.


Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturiser Oil Free - This was another one that was on my wish list as I have used tinted moisturisers before but only cheaper ones from drug stores and was keen to try and a high end product. Ive heard a lot of good reviews about Laura Mercier before and knew this was the one I wanted to try out, I was originally going to get the normal one but opted for the oil free version as I prefer my face to look matte.


Bumble and Bumble Hairdressers Invisible Oil Primer 60ml - Being a blonde takes a lot of work and having my hair highlighted every couple of months does leave it looking a little dull and dry. Ive tried lots of different oils, masques and sprays to try and get my hair looking healthy, some I've found really worked and others pretty useless. When I was queuing to pay at Sephora they also have a selection of mini products to tease you into buying so I picked out this Bumble and Bumble Oil Primer. Ive used it a couple of times now and can definitely feel that my hair is a lot softer and shinier, once I've finished using the mini version i'll definitely be buying the larger one.


Tarte Play it Safe Essentials Set - This was another impulse purchase at the till, Ive not tried out the Tarte products before and was keen to see what this one was about as you get a selection of mini versions. The set provides you with everything you need to get that bronzed summer glow. In the set you receive the Tarteguard sunscreen lotion SPF30, Maracuja self tanner bronzing serum, Amazonian Clay Waterproof Bronzer is Park Ave Princess and Brazilliance skin rejuvenating maracuja self tanner and face towelette. Out of the set I've only used the face towelette but it definitely gave me a summer bronzed glow and didn't smell at all like fake tan, and I've used the Amazonian Clay bronzer which adds a lovely glow to your face.


Anastasia Beverly Hill Dipbrow Pomade in Blonde - Ive has this product before but made the mistake of purchasing the wrong colour. I originally had soft brown thinking it would be perfect for me as my eyebrows are a little darker  than my blonde hair, however it made them too dark and washed my face out. This time I decided to try out the blonde shade as I've used blonde eyebrow pencils before and they are the perfect colour.


Too Faced Melt Your Heart Out Set - This was another product that was on my NYC wish list, Ive read a lot of reviews that these are amazing. I was originally hoping to buy a coral shade, however, when I saw this set I couldn't resist as you get a normal version of the melted lipstick and a mini version of the melted metal - for just $4 more. In the set you get a full size melted lipstick in the shade Peony which can be described as a dusty rose, I would say that this is quite a nudey pink. The mini melted metal you get in the shade is Dream House, a metallic bright fuchsia. With the melted metals you get a hint of glitter compared to the matte of the normal melted lipstick.


Fresh Rose Face Mask - On my last trip into Sephora I found out that with my Beauty Insider card I had 100 points enough to claim a free product. I chose this Fresh Rose Face Mask as I'm always keen to to try out new skin care products, when I first opened it I was shocked to see that it was actually a brown gel colour as I just assumed it would be a cream. I haven't actually tried this out yet, but Ive read that this is a really love fresh product which cools your face down and leaves it really soft. Ive actually found the full size one online and at $62.00 for a 100ml version I'm quite glad that I chose this as my free sample.



I hope you all enjoyed reading my second NYC beauty haul this time from Sephora. 



Have any of you tried these products before?



Love,

  1. Great haul! I just got the Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade this week and I'm loving it so far, my eyebrows are due a threading though so hopefully they will look even better when they are tidied up a bit!
