Sephora Haul

DSCN8034When someone hands you the opportunity to buy things at a discount, it’s only polite to accept the invitation, right? Especially when it involves beauty heaven Sephora which offered a 25 percent discount. Was there a minute of doubt? Needless to answer that … It concerns Sephora France which is far from comparable to the almighty one in the States but still a beauty shop gem nonetheless. I perused their web shop profoundly and ended up stocking up on things I needed and things that were wishlisted for a long time. Without further ado, here are the things I indulged myself with …

Chanel Le Blanc ⎜A primer that has everyone’s heart skip a beat. One that tricks people’s minds into thinking that you’ve been blessed with perfect skin. It minimises pores, blurs imperfections and illuminates your base. It ensures moisturised skin – thanks to high levels of hyaluronic acid – which is high priority during the colder months. Flawless base, be mine! 

Chanel Le Volume ⎜Hands down my favourite mascara of all the ones I’ve tried so far. It does wonders in terms of lengthening, curling and volumising. You need to learn to appreciate the one and only that is able to manage stubborn, short and straight lashes. Le Volume, I’m sticking with you!

NARS And God Created The Woman Palette ⎜God may have created the woman, but Nars clearly created this palette for me. Nars sure knows how to charm because it got me head over heels. I’m the queen of postponing a purchase and once again I managed to wait to the point that everything was sold out in a blink of an eye. And when something’s out of reach, madness starts to take over. Man, it got me frustrated. Luckily this palette was such a success that it has been re-released. This can only be fate right? So I ditched the doubting and went straight over to paying, that’s what I call determination. 

Marc Jacobs O!Mega Bronze ⎜Finding a bronzer shade that actually fits my skin tone is more the exception than the rule. Either being too reddish, orange, muddy, sheer or shimmery, there’s always something to complain about. I have been on the hunt for a new bronzer for a long while but that mission has been quite a failure. Until I came across this bronzer – love at first swatch. A true matte bronzer with the perfect shade. Marc Jacobs is undoubtedly scoring points at the moment.

Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk ⎜You know my adoration for foundation, and this one in particular. I got really anxious at the thought of running low on this precious bottle so I quickly ordered a back-up. In the mean time I have figured out that your so-called empty bottle of Luminous Silk still contains a lot more that you’d imagine. Screw off the pump and start pouring that liquid gold onto the back of your hand. You’ll be surprised how much is left inside. For those who are not familiar with Luminous Silk: It blurs imperfections as Instagram filters would. To know more about it, read my review here. I could not imagine myself without one of these at home.

      Thanks Kate! Chanel primer is great, however, it may have caused a break-out … Not sure yet! X

  • Alice Yeh (叶翠云)

    Give me some money and I’ll spend it well – pinky promise! Don’t forget to screw of the pump, it will be such a waste. Oh great, if you have other mascara recommendations, I’m always in to try a new one! ;)

      My favourite mascaras are definately waterproof ones! They’re the only ones that hold a curl – Maybelline the falsies and Max Factor 2000 calories are really good. xx

      • Alice Yeh (叶翠云)

        I swear by waterproof mascaras because – like you said – they are the only ones that hold a curl. However, this Chanel mascara performs wonderfully without being waterproof – yes it holds a curl! Definitely one to try when you are in dire need of a splurge, lol! X

  • Alexandra – Glam O’Clock

    This is such a lovely haul! This NARS palette and this bronzer OMG! Want! Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk is on my wishlist and I think it won’t be long to join my stash! I really want it to glow at all these Christmas/NYE parties! Le Blanc de Chanel has never really interested me (yes, I said it) until I read your post. Now I want it badly.

      Thanks Alexandra! I was most excited about getting that Nars Palette and the bronzer – and oh my, they were well worth the wait! Luminous Silk is totally worth the pennies and that Chanel primer rocks as well. I basically love everything I got, yay! X

    What a great haul Alice! I’m very curious about that amazing NARS palette and the bronzer..

    • Alice Yeh (叶翠云)

      Thanks Katia! Will do reviews soon! ;) X

  • Mandy Webb

    I love your photography so much, lovely! Amazing haul, of course. I had my eye on the NARS palette for ages but made myself forget about it. Now though… my hands might get itchy again ;)

    • Alice Yeh (叶翠云)

      Thanks Mandy! Means a lot too me because I’m never satisfied with my photos. Too perfectionist – a real burden, lol. My hands were itchy from the beginning. Such a beautiful neutral palette, and one can never have enough neutrals, right? ;) X

  • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

    I didn’t know Sephora in France had a VIB sale, too! Good to know for next year :p

    • Alice Yeh (叶翠云)

      It wasn’t called VIB but it must be something similar! Will keep you updated! ;)
