Sephora Florida Haul 2016




Of course I spoilt myself on holiday, who wouldn’t when they step through the doors of a huge American cosmetic store well-known for the rich and famous to be seen in too!!b (Not that I seen any of them haha) ūüôĀ

First Stop….Tarte¬†Cosmetics section. ¬†I had seen so many YouTubers go on about this brand and noticed they had this new range called Rainforest of the Sea. ¬†A gorgeous looking lady who worked in store came over to offer a hand and match me up to the foundation which is what I wanted. ¬†She explained that is was water based with a buildable coverage and had an SPF15 – well as soon as she mentioned this she had me. ¬†We tried a couple of colours and I came away with the Light medium neutral. ¬†This was $39. It comes in a nice pump bottle with gold lid looks very nice ¬†on the dresser and sleek.


Next I had to have a look at the Kat¬†Von D range, I am actually obsessed with this lady as a tattooist and a business woman with a fabulous cosmetic range. ¬†I ended up purchasing the new Serpentina Eyeshadow Palette. ¬†The pigmentation of the colours are stunning and come in the following named colours…..

Bloodmilk, Medusa, Ankh, Queen, Hieroglyph,Nile, Scarab, Venom and Prophet.


The Palette came at a price of $45 and personally I think well worth it as for me it would last a lifetime! The palette also comes in gorgeous black box very sophisticated and has a long mirror inside.

After popping these items in the basket I decided it was time to browse over the hourglass range as to be honest I’ve never used the products and always wondered what they were like. ¬†I was drawn to the sleek gold packaging of the blushes as I could have done with more blushes and highlighters and wasn’t disappointed when I came across this –


This is the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in the colour Incandescent Electra. It is paraben free, talc free and fragrance free, nano particle free and actually gluten-free too! It gives a lovely multi tonal blush colour with like a shimmer of light into your skin and adds depth and dimension. This was priced at $38 and comes in 7 colours. At the moment as old used it a couple of times I love having it in my handbag to top up during the day as it seems to brighten up my face.  I suffer as you know with Rosacea and it seems to not affect my skin which is really good too.

Last but by no means least and another one of this ladies collaborations to add to my collection РThe Becca Cosmetics and Jaclyn Hill split pans. The one I purchased was the Prosecco pop and Pamplemousse Blusher.  Reason being that I chose this one was because I already had the Champagne pop which is one of the choices your able to buy in the split pans. This was priced at $38.


So that just about wraps it up, I know it was quite short and sweet (Just like me ūüėČ

But don’t worry a lot more coming and a lot more regular too.
