Huge NYC Sephora Haul! ♡

Hi everyone! I am finallyyyy back! ♡ The past two weeks have been absolutely crazy and I have been travelling non-stop from London to New York to Paris and had the most amazing time ever on my trips <3 I am back home in London now (not for long though) and decide I should do this post quickly before I fly off yet again to Berlin and Copenhagen early tomorrow morning! :) While in NYC (travel diary coming super soon I promise!), I did some major retail therapy and A LOTTT of damages was done in Sephora. Here are a few things that I picked up in Sephora, along with 2 drugstore mascaras I picked up at Walgreens, which I have been super excited about sharing with y'all :D


Anastasia Beverly Hills:
The Glow Kit in "That Glow" - I have heard too much about this ABH palette before to not give it a try when I was in NYC. I think "This Glow" would be perfect for those with light to medium skin tones while "Sun Dipped" is more for those with darker skin tones :) I am officially obsessed with Golden Bronze and Sunburst in this palette would recommend anyone to check this palette out ♡

Liquid Lipstick in "Kathryn" - I have used this lippie a couple times while I was in NYC after purchasing it and I absolutely LOVE this colour :) The colour actually comes off a bit darker and redder when I apply it on my lips and is perfect for night-time, although I have also worn it during the day and it's perfectly fine :D The longevity is okay - the colour does come off partially after I eat and the liquid lipstick also stains my lips in a blotchy/ scary way when it wears off. Nevertheless, I am still in love with the colour.

Brow Wiz in "medium brown" - This is a repurchase as I have finished my last one a while ago and have been waiting for this trip to repurchase this product :) It is the perfect brow pencil for me - super precise and easy to use and helps me get my brows done in literally 60 seconds in the morning ♡

Marc Jacobs:
Style Eye-Con No. 3 in "108 The Glam" - I have been wanting to get my hands on Marc Jacob eyeshadows for really long time and had every intention to get one of their "Eye-Con No. 7" palettes, but when I went to Sephora and looked at them, I found that there are too many shades in the No. 7 palettes that I won't use. I saw this No. 3 eyeshadow palette instead and swatched the colours and was especially blown away by golden shade in the palette. This is a much more travel-friendly palette than the No.7 ones as well and is perfect for everyday looks :)

Urban Decay
♡ Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer in "Light Warm" - I have again heard so much about this Urban Decay concealer and people comparing this with the Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer in the past and so decided to give this UD one a go this time. I have to say I still much prefer the Nars concealer over this but I do LOVE the colour/ shade range for this UD concealer :) I am able to find an exact colour match for my skin tone for this UD concealer while for Nars I constantly have to mix two shades together which can be annoying. I also love Sephora's return policy ♡ I picked up the wrong shade the first time around and was able to exchange it for another shade in store with no problems even though I have already opened and used the first concealer - an A+ for Sephora's customer service! ♡

Wander Beauty
On-The-Glow Blush and Illuminator in "Coral Rose/ Nude Glow" - I am a huge Lindsay Ellingson fan and have been dying to get my hands on this blush/ highlighting stick for the longest time but it is consistently sold out on Net-a-Porter which is the only place Wander Beauty is sold in the UK as far as I know. I love the cream consistency of the blush and the highlighter and it is also a super travel-friendly product :) The price tag is quite hefty for a stick product but it is really high quality and I do not regret the purchase ♡

Make Up For Ever
Ultra HD Invisible Cover Stick Foundation in Shade 117 - I have been eyeing this foundation stick for a while now because I want something easy to use and apply in the Summer and love that this foundation is really buildable and can look super natural if you want it to :)

Tweezerman tweezers - This is kind of an impulse buy to be honest because I lost my tweezers when I went to NYC and was looking for new ones and these happened to be the first pair of tweezers I saw in Sephora. Looking back, I would have been completely fine with a pair of $1 tweezers from Walgreens and did not need to spend $23 on Tweezerman tweezers. I am still really happy that I have these though because they do work extremely well and can pick up the tiniest hair ever :)

Beauty Blender - Super late to the Beauty Blender game but I picked this up for my new MUFE stick foundation :)

Elizabeth and James Nirvana Black and White Mini Perfume Duos - I picked this perfume duo up when I was in the line of doom and am actually so glad I did haha! I have been wanting to try the Elizabeth and James Nirvana perfumes ever since every YouTuber and their mothers started talking about them on YouTube a while back and they actually smell pretty darn amazing haha! <3 I am a huge fan of the White perfume since I love sweet scents and while the Black one is not my usual cup of tea I really love them paired together :) I am definitely going to pick up a big bottle of the Nirvana White perfume next time I am back in NYC :D

Drugstore Mascaras
Covergirl Lashblast Volume Waterproof - I saw this while browsing in Walgreens and thought that I would give it a go. I haven't tried it yet so I can't say much about it but I am really hoping that it lives up to its reputation :)

Maybelline Falsies Waterproof - And last but not least - I had to get a back-up of my holy grail mascara from Maybelline ♡ Plus it is way cheaper to buy it in the States compared to the UK :D

And that concludes my Sephora and drugstore mascara haul! The damage is done and guilt has been felt but I am so excited to play with all these new products :P ♡ Look out for my NYC travel diaries soon (they are coming shortly I promise!) and I cannot wait to share my Paris, Berlin and Copenhagen travel diaries with you as well after that <3 Meanwhile, I hope everyone is having a great week! ♡
