A Sephora Beauty Haul

Sephora Haul highlighter natural eyes

So this post has been a bit of a long time coming.  I meant to show you all the exciting things I bought from Sephora as soon as I got back from holiday, but it turns out taking the photos took a bit longer than I would have liked and I didn’t quite expect that getting over my jet lag would so long.

Anyway, a visit to Sephora has been on my wish list for yonks and I so wish they would have this store in the UK.  Whilst I did buy many things, I tried to stick to items that I really wanted and I knew I would get use out of rather than just buy things for the sake of it – I can be sensible you know!  I haven’t had a chance to test these out fully yet (mostly because I wanted to take my photos whilst everything still looked pristine), but in any case they will be creeping up in future posts so do keep an eye out.

I’ll start with the Too Faced Natural Eyes Palette which is something I have had on my wish list for ages.  I love the look of this palette and the colours look so wearable that I can’t wait to start using this.

After hearing so many rave reviews about the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfecter I knew I wasn’t going to let this one go. I went for the shade Opal which is a lovely golden champagne as I felt it suited my skin tone the best.

I know I didn’t really need another mascara, but with Tarte being quite hard to get hold of in the UK I felt like I had to get something from this brand.  I therefore settled for the Lights, Camera Flashes Statement Mascara and their Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Blush in Exposed, which is nude blusher that verges on a dusky pink colour.

Of course no Sephora haul would be complete without the Anastasia Brow Wiz which I picked up in the colour dark brown and after hearing great things about the Living Proof Perfect Hair Day 5 in 1 Styling Treatment, I quickly put this in my basket too.

The Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer had been on my radar and since Sephora stock this in a travel friendly size, I thought this would be a great way of testing it out.  So far I am loving it and can see myself buying the full size when this one finishes.

The Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment is something that has always intrigued me.  I’m not really a tinted lip balm kinda gal but you have to try something different from time to time and when I tried out the shade Coral in the store, I was pleasantly surprised at how pigmented it actually is.

I also made a beehive for Olivia Palermo’s nail polish range with Ciate London, with the two shades that I was drawn to being Hutch which is lovely cherry red and Napa Valley, a wearable ox blood shade.  The Marc Jacobs Enamoured Hi-Shine Nail Polish in Funny Girl on the other hand is a perfect nude and great for a no fuss look.

Lastly I was lucky to snap up a birthday gift too and to my delight I got the Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Cruella which I have always been meaning to buy – how lucky is that!

So, have you used any of these items before and what’s on your Sephora wish list? x

    The best thing about Sephora VIB sales are the hauls everyone starts to post about right after. I too did a Sephora haul, but never shared it because time’s gotten away from me and now I have opinions about a lot of the products I tried. Giveaways coming soon too! You have lot of great picks & it can’t go wrong with a Becca highlighter! xx, adaatude.com

  • Amazing haul! I really want to get one of the Tarte blushes too. The Fresh Sugar Lip Treatments are great, I got myself one while I was in the US :)x

    • Thanks. I love the packaging of these nail polishes, I didn’t want to take them out of the box! xx

  • I am extremely envious of your Sephora haul, I am loving all ! I wish we had one in London ! I only go to Sephora when I visit my family in France! This shop is great !

    • I know I wish there was one in London too. This was my first ever visit to Sephora and i loved it – as you would expect! xx

      • You know what when I first moved to London (about 17 years ago) I think Sephora was there but not anymore …maybe they’ll come back. Finger cross. x

        • You are right it was in london but literally ages ago (i am showing my age here!) At that time I wasn’t really into makeup like I am now though!

  • I am eyeing on Becca Perfecter, its perfect for festive season!

    I love the look of that Too Faced palette, I’ve put the matte version on my Christmas list along with the Chocolate Bar palette! I’m really eager to try a Becca highlight too, Opal and Champagne Pop are high up the wish list. x

    • This is my first Too Faced palette and so far I am really impressed. The highlighter by Becca divine x

  • Danielle Beautyblog

    I have the Too Faced palette and love it! I’ve always wanted to try one of the Tarte blushers too, they are meant to be so pigmented!

    Danielle’s Beauty Blog

    • I know I’ve wanted both of these for ages and this Tarte blusher is a great option for when you have a bold lip going on x

  • Great haul! Those nail polishes look beautiful! Dying to hear more about the Living Proof product! xx

    Beautylymin

    • These nail polishes were my star buy and I’ve worn all of them now – they are such beautiful colours and the packaging is just fab. I’ll feed back on the Living Proof Product soon but so far I would say that it does what it says and my hair is more manageable. x

  • Such a lovely haul! Wouldn’t it be amazing if Sephora did ever come to the UK? I went to the states recently and managed to pick up a Becca Shimmering Perfector too. I went for Champagne Pop but it was a toss up between that and Opal. They’re both so gorgeous!

    • Ii was actually Champagne pop that I wanted but when I swatched Opal I preferred it more. It would be fantastic if Sephora came to the UK, but perhaps not s good for my bank balance!!

  • So many gorgeous products! Becca Opal and Too Faced palette are gorgeous! I’m very tempted to get the travel size of the Hourglass primer as everyone seems to love it! x

    • Getting the travel sized version is a good way of testing out something you are not sure about luckily for me I really like this and it definitely keeps the makeup on x

  • I have been dreaming about the Too Faced Natural Eyes Palette since the day it came out! The shades are so gorgeous! Great choices 😉 xx

    • Oh they really are aren’t they? I can’t wait to start testing all of these out x

    We don’t have a great Sephora in Aus so there are so many products we can’t get that are on my Sephora wish list. That’s why whenever I travel I usually spend a crazy amount of money there buying everything I’ve been wanting for such a long time. I know some things you can buy online but I think it’s always more fun to swatch things in person.

    • Completely agree with you, it’s much better to too see it in store because there were some items I really wanted but when I went in the store to swatch them I couldn’t see what all of the fuss was about! x
