The Sephora Haul

The Sephora Haul by What Laura did Next
It's safe to say, I went to a fair few Sephora's.

Everytime I was near one I had to go in. 

I had time to plan my visit(s) to the mothership - a lot of research went into this before I'd even set foot on US soil (thanks to anyone who sent me recommendations). But, I did also try and go in with a bit of a clear head as well. 

One thing I will warn you about when shopping in Sephora – they have some amazing travel size products that they have displayed whilst you’re queuing to pay and, every time I caved and added one or two items to my basket – Sephora is very clever!

So here it is – my purchases – I'll be posting my haul form the gem-filled drugstores next week.

It may have been a little troublesome to close my suitcase on the way home…

Kat Von D Liquid Lipsticks (L-R: Lolita, Mother & Berlin)
These were top of my list, and although there seemed to be a Manhattan-wide shortage of shades, I managed to pick up these 3. I’ve got to say, I’ve been wearing them so much since I bought them and they totally live up to the hype…I may have even put in an order for a couple more shades with my friend who is off to the US very soon…whoops!

Too Faced Love Flush Blush (Love Hangover)
I mean….just look at it! I’m such a sucker for packaging, and I have to be honest – I pretty much got this because it reminds me of the Polly Pocket toys that used to be around. The shade is lovely though, and I will be testing it out soon.

Anastasia Beverley Hills Brow Wiz (Soft Brown)
Now, this was bought on a whim and I’ve heard good and bad things about it. I haven’t tried it out yet as I’m still in love with my Charlotte Tilbury brow pencil but, I’ll let you know my thoughts as soon as I do.

Marc Jacobs Under(cover) Perfecting Coconut Primer
I’ve been after a new primer for a while, and I wanted to try out something from March Jacobs beauty line so I bought this on a whim. It was the most expensive product I purchased from Sephora but, after reading a couple of reviews whilst in the store (yey to free wifi!) I decided to go for it. I’ve got to say it smells amazing! I’ll report back once I’ve tried it out properly.

The Estee Edit by Estee Lauder The Edgiest Kohl Shadowstick (Frostbite)
Currently exclusive to Sephora this line is fairly new, having only launched this year. I’d heard a couple of things about it before heading out to NYC, and was curious to see what it was like. I’ve got to say this shadowstick is such a lovely shade and it blends well. The only downside, it’s quite ‘sticky’ on the eyelids.

Sephora sleeping masks
I bought a few of these sleeping masks as they were pretty cheap. They’re really nice and haven’t upset my skin at all, so I recommend these if you’re heading over soon.

Prada candy & Daisy Eau so fresh eau de toilette rollerball 
Why oh why can you not get these in the UK?! Sephora literally has stands dedicated to these in their stores. I hate lugging my heavy perfume bottles around when I travel, so these are the handiest thing ever.

Sephora mini solid brusher cleaner
This was one of those items that went in to my basket as I was waiting to pay. I haven't used it yet, but I'm hoping it will come in handy when I'm on my travels.

Beauty Blender
One thing that you can't not buy when you visit Sephora, is one of these. Hands up, I've never actually used one but, I've been told these are a totally face changer so will be having a play with it very soon.

Bobbi Brown vitamin enriched face base
This was actually one of the products you could get with the points you make on your purchases. I'm actually fairly impressed with BB's skincare - their face masks are great, so I'm hoping this will live up to its expectations.

Living Proof Perfect hair Day 5-in-1 styling treatment
I saw two of my favourite beauty blogging babes, Anna and Lily mention this on their blogs/vlogs a while back, and as you can't get it easily in the UK, I thought I'd grab a bottle whilst in the US. I haven't used it yet - I'm so lazy when it comes to my hair but can't wait to try it out.

There you have it! My Sephora haul. I could've seriously bought back a lot more - thankfully they ship to the UK so I'll be grabbing some more Kat Von D liquid lipsticks very soon.
