Hello everyone! I know it's been a while but my summer has been super busy. I did, however, find time to order some of my favourite products online through Sephora.com on the Canada site or buy them at their boutiques in Greece.
Sephora is one of my favourite stores/websites because of the variety of beauty brands available. Here is what I got this time.
I first tried out this brand last summer when I needed to buy a face powder. While walking around Sephora (In Carrefour Laval, Quebec) I saw a fabulous display of their products. It caught my eye and so I bought a face powder. I have been interested in this brand ever since.
Smooth Finish Foundation Powder 01
Using a face powder at the age of 40 is something to be careful with. If the product isn't efficient, you'll look a lot older. This product is worth every penny!!!! It is lightweight with a matte finish. It does cover up red spots and imperfections very well because of the yellow undertones giving you an even-tone complexion. It can be used wet or dry. I like using it with a brush for light coverage or over a foundation for the matte finish when I want more coverage. I love it because it reduces the appearance of lines and pores. I highly recommend it!! $56 CDN
Paint Wash Liquid Lip Colour (Orchid Pink)
I bought this lip gloss at a store in Greece while on vacation. The rich colour and fabulous applicator are what attracted me to it. I don't usually buy lip glosses because I rarely use them. They are usually too sticky.
This product has a fantastic vivid colour to stand out with a rich pigmentation. I love that about it. I recommend using it alone if you like a rich glossy look or mixing it for a more sheer transparent look. It goes on with a shine and dries to a velvet colour finish. It has a lovely stain and lasts for about 4 hours. $34 CDN
Radiant Creamy Concealer (vanilla)- NARS
This is the second time I bought this concealer. I had bought it for the first time last year at Sephora with the Laura Mercier powder. It was the first time I had ever tried anything from NARS and was really looking forward to it after hearing rave review online. I cannot stress enough how much I LOVE this concealer!
It is FABULOUS!!!
It has medium to full coverage on any blemish or redness. It does everything: contours, highlights and corrects. I use it all over my face to highlight, cover up any dark under eye circles and redness. I use just my LM face powder on top and I'm ready!
No wonder it has received awards and is loved by so many! $36 CDN
YVES SAINT LAURENT
Luxurious Mascara 4 purple
I love dark purple mascara! It's so hard to find so I decided to try the one by YSL a while back. This is the second time I buy it. The colour is dark enough to use alone or can provide a more dramatic look when applying more than one coat. It is quite popular and rightfully so. I recommend it because of the beautiful lashes it gives you, the rich colour and fabulous packaging! The only downside to it is that I have to finish it well under 6 months because it starts drying out afterwards. $37 CDN
Glossy Stain Lip Gloss 204 Onde Rose
I bought this at Sephora in Greece. I had seen this in every fashion magazine and beauty website getting rave reviews so I had to try it. I wanted a coral red lip gloss anyway and the packaging is divine. I have to say that this is the BEST lip gloss I have EVER bought. I highly recommend it because: it is NOT sticky at all, it is unscented and has a beautiful glossy natural look to it. It can be used alone for a sheer lip shine or over a lip pencil for a more formal look. I LOVE it! I highly recommend it. $40 CDN
