Now, for any beauty blogger, it goes without saying: A holiday=a holiday HAUL. And sadly, I couldn't even wait to get onto French territory before I whipped out my credit card...the haul began at THE AIRPORT at 8am (I'm ashamed). So enough of my rambling, here is what I purchased:
Bioderma goodies: Of course I had to do the obligatory pharmacy trip to stock up on Bioderma. It actually took me a little while to find a good deal on the Crealine H2O which I eventually managed to pick up in a double pack for an impressive 18.50 (euros). Considering I had bought a single bottle in the UK for a whopping £25, this was a major triumph, and if I'd have had more suitcase space I would have gone for more. I did also pick up the Sebium H2O and the Sebium Al Correcteur in a duo pack. So far I have really enjoyed the Sebium H2O, which is good for oily, spot-prone skin. I use it after my cleanser and feel it really unclogs my skin well. As for the 2-in-1 tint corrector product, I'm just not sure. I just don't GET IT. It has a colour corrector green balmy thing which you pat onto blemishes and then a tinted moisturiser BB cream-esque product which you rub all over your face. I think it's just a little dark for my skin, and I just don't really understand the green thing, but it was worth a try.
Eyelure 'Sarah' lashes: Pretty self explanatory...lashes...impulse airport buy...you get the general idea.
Maybelline Colour Sensation Lipstick in Shocking Coral: Another day, another lipstick. And another airport purchase; it is just such a super pretty bold pinky coral colour and is really moisturising on the lips. It also smells like marshmallows (strangely enjoyable).
Clarins Lip Perfector in 04 Petal Shimmer: This one is a brand new shade not out in the UK until next month. So of course I had to grab one whilst I was in Sephora (AND, it was the last one...SCORE). I read about these on Vivianna does makeup but never picked up any of the original shades. They have such a lovely texture (completely non-sticky and moisturising) and the colour is a super cute sheer baby pink.
Barry M Gelly Nail polish in Lychee: This is the one shade I was dying to try after reading about it pretty much everywhere, so when I was at Boots at the airport and realised the 3 for 2 deal was still on, this was pretty much a guaranteed buy. The colour is a perfect nude, and the formula is long lasting and hi-shine.
Urban Decay All nighter setting spray: I moaned about the price of this setting spray when I reviewed The Avene spray , but I guess I caved when I saw it again in Sephora. And I'm SO glad I did. This stuff keeps your makeup in place for hours (the lady on the stand told me 16 hours which is perhaps a little ambitious but still!) and it is a great alternative to Mac's fix plus.
Bumble and Bumble Mini Goodies: I picked up the de-frizz which is a serum formula, and the thickening hairspray. I am yet to use these bits but will report back. I bought them both in the mini versions as BB can be pretty pricey and I wanted to test them out before I got the real deal!
