Sephora Favourites

International brand Sephora has a great take on the best beauty products on the market from skincare to make up.

Mr B knows he can be on a work trip anywhere in the world and all he has to do is find a  Sephora store for a winning gift

So good is this ubiquitous hub of beauty and so well trained are the staff that you could point a monkey into a Sephora store and they would leave with a monochrome bag of brilliant beauty finds, tailormade to suit you. No offence to monkeys or Mr B intended!

So what’s hot right now?…..Here’s my pic of current favourites……

Sephora Favourites

Skin Super Foods

Nine delicious super food treats for the skin.  I loved the the black charcoal, peel-off Luminizing Black Mask it removes blackheads, impurities, and excess oil, it leaves your skin bright and polished.

I also love the Tata Harper Regenerating Cleanser it feels like a thorough cleanse. It clarifies with fresh enzymes, clays, and essential oils leaving a smooth finish.

I’m also now addicted to the Luminous Dewy Skin Mist, it contains Okinawa red algae and hyaluronic acid for a boost of soothing hydration and a luminous complexion. All I know is this makes my skin glow and is going everywhere with me this summer.


Sephora Favourites

Give Me Some Nude Lip

Mr B bought something similar in the past, and as ever its a winning combo.  As a lover of a nude lip he cant go wrong with this set.  All the must-haves here to give you the perfect nude lip look, including one full size and five deluxe sizes of nude lip essentials. This multibranded set includes a liquid lipstick, gloss, lipstick, and a lip plumper to help you find your perfect nude hue—including a full-size Ciaté London Liquid Velvet Moisturising Matte Liquid Lipstick. Delicious!

Sephora Collection

Illuminate Palette

If you were a fan of last years highlighting beauty craze then you will love Illuminating powder. Highlight like a pro with this pastel palette that illuminates the face, shoulders, and décolleté. The silky formula, (yes it really is silky) blends seamlessly into the skin, delivering radiance where the light naturally hits. The stunning array of hues enhance every skin tone and can be mixed and matched for a customizable glow.

All in all I find it hard to fault Sephora for quality or choice, unfortunately we still don’t have a Sephora in the UK, perhaps its better that we don’t, it makes holidays and business trips all the more exciting.

You can order online from the US website, shipping is £6. Please note this is not a sponsored post, I just like the brand.

Love, DSB x

Sephora Haul

When Mr B announced he was going to New York with work for a week in January I felt a little green with envy.  Then I remembered one of the basic rules of marriage.  If the husband travels abroad with work thou shalt be rewarded upon his return with gifts.  I think the marriage certificate details this.

And then I remembered Sephora.  If you’re not au fait with Sephora then you soon will be. Sephora is the beauty megastore founded in France by Dominique Mandonnaud in 1970, with 3,200 stores in 33 countries.  Except the UK, that is until now.  Rumour has it that Sephora is coming to the UK, specifically our London Westfield stores.

Anyway back to my haul, Sephora is as ubiquitous on New York streets as Boots is in London. So I knew Mr B was likely to find one easily. I told him to look for Smashbox Primer and to buy Sephora Favourites, basically a beauty box full of current pics.

The black and white stripes of the Sephora packaging told me he had shopped well.  I’ve almost tried all of the individual products, too many to mention all so here’s my topbuys.

1/ Smashbox Iconic Photo Finish Foundation Primer. Amazing even better than you think!

2/ Sephora Favourites Give Me Some Nude Lip. You cant get enough of a good nude lip

3/  Sephora Favourites Beauty After Last Call The January pick me up package we all need.

You can buy online from the website however you need to spend a minimum of £75 and £6 postage, or you can wait patiently crossing all fingers and toes that a Sephora store will arrive in the UK soon….

Does a clap of excitment….Weeeeeee!

Love DSB x
