If you follow me on Instagram you'll know that on my travels I stumbled across a Sephora. And I do mean stumbled, we were just ambling down a side street in Rhodes when I spotted it, and I let out a gasp that convinced my mum I'd seen a dead body or the Queen. One of the two.
And of course it would have been rude not to go in! I had a couple of bits on my wishlist, and they had a sale on (plus the exchange rate for the Euro is really good at the moment, it made everything around a third off!) so you know, damage happened!
The main thing on my wishlist was the Sephora Pro Flawless Airbrush #56 Brush. I asked my sister if she could pick it up for me in Singapore last month but she discovered that they don't stock it in Asian Sephoras (boo!) so I didn't think I'd be able to get a hold of this! This was the first thing I picked up and it was DEFINITELY worth the wait. I've been using this for Foundation and Concealer and it just gives the most flawless finish you could possibly imagine. If I could only have one brush I think this would be it, and that's a mighty bold claim.
The Sephora Collection Skincare line was all buy two get one free, so I decided to pick up a few bits that had caught my eye previously (as well as a few that hadn't). I'd been wanting to try out the Sephora Collection Triple Action Cleansing Water, after hearing only good things, so that went in the basket along with the Sephora Collection Triple Action Makeup Removing Gel. I picked both of these up in travel size just in case I didn't like them, so far I've only tried the cleansing water but I like it!
I picked up the Sephora Collection Moisturising Beautifying Water because it was on sale for only 5€ and it was so hot I wanted something to spritz on my skin as we walked around town! This has a gorgeous vanilla and cocoa scent, and is definitely moisturising, and so refreshing in 38degree heat!
I picked up a new Sephora Collection Travel Size Eau de Toilette, this time in the Monoi scent. I love having these to chuck in handbags and for travel, and this one is a beautiful, fresh floral scent with a hint of citrus!
At the checkout I spotted the Sephora Collection Green Tea Eye Mask and immediately grabbed one, since it's been on my to try list for the longest time. I'm saving it for a special occasion but I used the corresponding face mask last week and it was really good, so I have high hopes! The lovely lady at the checkout then pointed out I could get another skincare item for free so I ended up grabbing the Sephora Collection Double Duty Exfoliator and Mask because it sounded intriguing (and was only 6€) so we'll see how that goes!
I'll report back when I've given it all a thorough testing!
