For years now I have been glued to various YouTuber’s such as Kathleenlights, Nikkie Tutorials and Chloe Morello. These US and Australian beauties have been using ColourPop for a while now and my obsession for the brand grew along with their collection. The products were never available for international shipping and it always broke my heart. I adored watching these ladies rave about the products and I was ECSTATIC when they finally started shipping internationally. I quickly ordered an insane amount of makeup and I can honestly say I was never more excited. I had a firm idea of what I wanted and I added some new additions to my basket (I’m sorry I just can’t say cart).
At the start of February, I blogged about my first ever shopping trip to Sephora. I shared their nude eyeshadow palette that I bought, and today I’m going to finish off my spree with the rest of my purchases.
It’s safe to say that I’ve become infatuated with the brand and in particular their eyeshadows. I love how great the pigmentation is in each shade. They’re rich, warm and worth every penny.
I’m sure you’ve all noticed that I’m a huge fan of natural coloured shadows, so I thought that I would continue my trend and purchase these two breathtaking colours.
My first choice was this natural shimmer called ‘Romantic Comedy’. It’s more of a warmer shade. I wouldn’t use this kind of colour as an overall base type, but, I would use it on my lid to give my look a little glow.
Next, I treated myself to this fabulous glitter shadow called ‘Girl Talk’. Both shadows are long lasting and this second colour is perfect for adding a little sparkle to my make up look. It is a little darker than ‘Romantic Comedy’ but it really pops when it’s applied to the lid. Again, the pigmentation is unbelievable, especially with the glitter running throughout it.
When I’m doing my make up, I will always use a highlighter on my eyes, nose and cheek bones. It emphasises my features and helps to make my skin glow. I prefer a pink/golden tone when using this kind of product. I opted for Sephora’s own brand and added their highlighting compact powder in ‘Rose Pink’ to my shopping spree.
I love the delicate snowflake style imprints on the powder. It makes it even more appealing and I just had to have it. ♥
Finally, my last buy! After sorting out my eyes and cheek bones, I moved onto their lip section. A long lasting, high gloss colour is very important to me when shopping for lip glosses/lipsticks. Again, I went for a natural coloured lipstick pencil shade called ‘Gorgeous Peach’. It gives off a high gloss shine and moisturises my lips all at the same time. Perfection! 🙂
So, that was pretty much my Sephora shopping spree. It’s pretty safe to say that I shopped until I dropped for my first ever experience there.
