sephora shopping

Whilst I was in Paris a few weeks ago I couldn't resist a little trip to Sephora as I've been craving visiting the store for years and as we don't have any in England it was the perfect opportunity to do some make up shopping. Make Up For Ever was the main attraction for me as it's notoriously hard to get hold of in the UK, I was a little disappointed though at the lack of stock of MUFE in the store itself though most of their popular products were sold out however I did still manage to pick up two of their most raved about products, the HD foundation and powder. I've been using them both since my trip and can confirm that they both definitely deserve the praise that they receive among the beauty community. My other favourite item that I picked up was a blending brush which is absolutely amazing at buffing liquid foundation into the skin, better than any other brush that I've ever tried and most importantly doesn't shed hairs like Mac brushes. If you are near a Sephora at any point you simply have to pick up this brush, it's definitely a god send. I also picked up a few unique shades of nail polish, some Mac lashes and a facial brush to use with cream cleanser and exfoliator. Overall I'm really happy with everything that I picked up!

  3. I would love to go visit a sephora! i think i would spend ages in there just looking at products that aren't available in the UK. I did hear that UK are bringing back Sephora soon though which will be amazing :) Awwws you got the Sephora foundation brush, i do want to try that because i know it will buff in foundation really well. I wonder how this compares with the RT buffing brush? :) Thanks for sharing~xx
