When 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.
