Last month my Dad went to America for a road trip with a friend and asked me if there was anything I wanted him to pick up for me. It didnt take more than a heartbeat to send a Sephora wishlist his way.
Why don't we have Sephora in the UK? I know we can get stuff delivered here, but if we had stores here literally all of my wage would get lost in that place! Sort it out, Sephora!
The main thing I swoon over when I'm looking over the Sephora website are the Sephora Favourite bundles. Little mixed packs of joy, containing minis of luxury brands - all of which I've never tried and some of which aren't available in the UK. I asked my Dad to look out for those, and here's what he brought back!
Spoilt, I know! What you are looking at here is $100 worth of stuff. In pounds, it works out at around £62. There is no way on earth you'd be able to buy these products in the UK for anywhere near as much as that, so the Sephora savings are off the scale! I got 21 products which work out at about £2.95 each. WOW!
Here's a look at each set individually:
Sephora Favourites : Glitz & Glam $45
"This day to night makeup collection is packed with our most glamorous party essentials in a festive metallic clutch"
This has to be my favourite out of the bunch. Within an absolutely stunning makeup bag which no takes permanent residence in my handbag, there was packed a night out look to go. I got a Benefit Watts Up Mini which I already have and love - a great addition to the collection. A FULL SIZE Deborah Lippmann nail polish in the gorgeous shade Good Girl Gone Bad, a mini bottle of the Drybar Detox Dry Shampoo, a mini Lancome Artliner, a mini Laura Mercier Caviar Stick in the shade Rose Gold, a mini pot of the Make Up Forever HD Powder, a FULL SIZE Smashbox Cosmetics Be Legendary Lipstick in Infared Matte, a Stila Foil Finish Eyeshadow in Dusty Rose and a gorgeous pair of Sephora false lashes in Astonish.
WOW. I'll give you a minute to take a breath.
This kit is just amazing - you really could do a full look out of it. I'm completely in love with the dry shampoo and I'm considering purchasing the full size. The nail polish is on my nails and toes - its the perfect Christmas sparkly berry shade! I cant wait to try everything out and report back.
Sephora Favourites : Draw The Line $30
This kit is all about eyeliner and is a perfect edition to my makeup collection at this time of year. Party season is in full swing and this year I'll be styling the cat eye flick at every opportunity! In the kit, you get a mini Kat Von D Tattoo Liner, a mini Marc Jacobs Beauty Highliner, a Nars Cosmetics Long Wear Eyeliner, a Sephora Contour Eye Pencil, a Stila Cosmetics Stay all Day Liquid Eyeliner and a Full Size Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Double Ended Eye pencil,
I love the fact that there is a variety of liners in there - they aren't all black and they are a mixture of pencils and pens, and their applications are quite different too. I was really excited to see the Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in there as I have read some really good reviews. I have also worn the Stila eyeliner quite abit recently, as the brown shade makes it much more wearable for daytime looks.
Last, but by certainly no means least...
Sephora Favorites : Give me some Lip $25
When I saw this I got a little too excited. In terms of lips, I haven't tried a single one of these brands before now and I was super excited to give them a go! In the box, you get a mini Bite Beauty High Pigment Pencil in Meritage, a mini Buxom Full on Lip Creme in White Russian, a mini Marc Jacobs Lust For Lacquer in Kissability, a mini Nars Cosmetics Lip Gloss in Orgasm, a mini Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in Naked and a FULL SIZE Smashbox Cosmetics Lip Gloss in Pout. Another amazing box! I particularly like the Bite Beauty Pencil - really easy to apply and a great autumnal colour - perfect for my skintone!
I think I'll be hitting up the Sephora website pretty soon for some Christmas gifts for friends and family. Theses really are amazing value for money and a real treat for a beauty lover!
