Hey guys! I've gotten some new makeup over the past month or so, both from Sephora and the drugstore. The drugstore makeup haul should be up here in a few days time, but today it's all about the new things from Sephora. Since I've had some of these products for a while already, I can give a little mini review of them.
My birthday was about a month ago and my friends gave me the Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit and the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector. I am really loving the contour kit- the powders are so light and non-cakey.
I don't do intense contouring, but rather, I use the browny colours like a bronzer to warm up my cheeks. I also use the lighter colours to set my makeup, and the yellow powder for under the eyes. The Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector is obviously so gorgeous, I may just buy the powder version when this tube is done!
Since it was my birthday, I also received a gift card to Sephora. With it, I bought the Clinique blush in Pansy Pop and a mini Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer in the shade Nude.
The packaging and the colour of the blush are gorgeous... it applies quite sheer but it's buildable. therefore, if you're scared of wearing bright purple blush, this is actually quite a wearable shade.
The Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer is an old favourite of mine... I must have repurchased this about 4 times. It's also got a buildable coverage, and it leaves your skin looking very natural and glowy.
Finally, this past weekend I bought these two items from Sephora. They remind me of peacock colours: Sephora waterproof eyeliner in "Surfer Babe" and the Nars single eyeshadow in "Strada".

I for some reason have never really explored Sephora's own makeup section... And After checking it out this past weekend I am super impressed! They have some really good stuff. This eyeliner is SO buttery and very long lasting.
And, finally, the eyeshadow I fell absolutely in love with, Nars' "Strada": an absolutely mesmerizing lavender with a light gold shimmer. Can we appreciate? Although this is a bright colour, I have no problem wearing this on an everyday basis. That's how much I love this. It is an "out there" colour but at the same time, something about it is very soft and pretty.
Coming up in a few days will be a Drugstore Makeup Haul so keep an eye out! Take care xx
