Hello all and welcome to my very first blog post!
You guys may already know me from my YouTube channel but if not, you can check it out here :).
I figured I would just go ahead and dive straight in with a good old haul post for you all. As you may or may not know, myself and my other half recently took a short trip to Prague for his birthday. I did a little research before we headed off and found out they have several Sephora stores over there!
As we don’t have that here in Ireland, I was beyond excited to go and take a nose around. And you can see below, I managed to grab quite a lot of stuff and was happy as larry!
The first few things I grabbed were Sephora and own brand and quite small, but still worth a mention. I came away with four of their creamy body wash pod samples which smell DELICIOUS. At €1 a pop, they better smell damn good! I have yet to try these but have high hopes as I spent about half an hour in the store sniffing the damn things! The ones I settled on were, Coconut, Vanilla, Mango and Caramel. YUM!
Next, I picked up a tie dye nail polish top coat. I believe this was around €5. Now I have not yet mastered this, but the premise is that it will give your nails a nice ombre/tie dye effect if used correctly. More importantly, you can use this over any polish colour and don’t need to use Sephora polishes!
I then picked up a Benefit, They’re Real mascara. Finally! I know, I am so behind the times. But better late than never. This cost €26 so no real saving made.
Always one on the lookout for a bargain, the next 2 things I grabbed were of course reduced. The first of which is the YES To Carrots, Rich Moisture Day Cream. I picked this up at 70% off, for €5 instead of the usual €18 I believe! This has a lovely creamy texture and I was lucky enough to get my hands on the pump form as opposed to the jar. So much handier says I!
I also grabbed the very last Ciaté Velvet Manicure set in the store. I picked up the navy version and I have to say, I can hardly wait to try this out and make an awful mess :). This cost me something like €9 instead of €13 at 30% off.
Now… Brace yourselves lads. The reason I went looking for Sephora in the first place, was to hunt down some Nars bits and pieces. AND OH BOY. I would say I was successful :).
First off, I grabbed SEVEN Velvet Gloss Lip Pencils. I know, I know. Overkill, but they were just so gorgeous! Too lovely to leave behind. Ordinarily, all of these products are around €26 but I managed to get some of them for as little as €18. All in all, I was more than happy with my spoils!
The Velvet Gloss Lip Pencils I got were Cythére, Frivolous, Club Mix, New Lover, Buenos Aires, Hopi and More. I have swatched them all for you below!
Next, all almost last, (I promise!), I picked up 2 of the Velvet Matte Lip Pencils. Only 2! The lucky chosen ones were Sex Machine and Cruella.
Finally, I tackled the lip glosses. A collection is never complete without a touch of lip gloss! Again, I restrained myself in this section and only grabbed Chihuahua, Rose Gitane, Risky Business and Norma. I am sure you are proud of my show of self control!
And that my friends, concludes my first ever post on this blog. There is a YouTube video up on my channel to go along with this post and it even includes a few more bits and pieces if you can believe it!
I hope you enjoyed this post, but sure to tell me what you think and check out my about section above if you have not done so already! I am sure you will want to know more about this girl with an already clear make up OBSESSION.
