With the recent news of Sephora now shipping to UK which I talked about here I thought it was a better time than never to share with you all the things my lovely boyfriend picked up for me the past two times he went to the US. There will also be a drugstore one coming up as my Walgreens list got a little of out hand, they have it a whole lot better across the pond.
The Amazonian Clay 12-Hour blusher's have been on my list ever since they were released a couple of years ago - containing beneficial clay, having a twelve hour wear claim and being incredibly pigmented. First on my list was Tipsy, a mix of orange and pink that just screams summer, its stunning. The next two were spur of the moment but I'm glad I added them to my list - Blissful, which will be permanent in my Muji drawers come Spring is a beautiful warm pink and Exposed a neutral that works all year round. I'm always on the look out for the perfect under eye concealer and I couldn't say no to Tarte's Maracuja Creaseless Concealer claims, I've haven't give this one a try yet as I have way too many on the go but I shall keep you updated.
One that is different from any other blush I own is Josie Maran's Coconut Watercolor Cheek Gelée in Coral Oasis a spongy textured, tangerine coloured blush that leaves a stain to the cheeks. If I'd known I was allergic to coconut I wouldn't have gotten this but once summer arrives I'll still give it a good test. NARS can't be shipped over the to the UK but as they are already available over here it doesn't really matter. The reason for picking up NARS Laguna was that at the time Becca's Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed and Laura Mericer Oil Free Tinted Moisturiser were out of stock so I decided on getting this as it was something I wanted to try but never got around to picking it up.
I first fell in the love with Sephora's Jumbo Liner when I brought Copper in Barcelona a few years ago, I swatched it on the back of my hand and when I tried to get it off it wouldn't budge. Since then I've added Beige, Brown and Taupe to my collection - a peachy neutral, reddish brown and classic taupe. I'm really impressed with how well these have lasted which is more than I can say about the more expensive Urban Decay's 24/7 Glide On Shadow Pencils which have since dried up and gone to eyeshadow heaven.
