A Slice of America

Hey guys,

Soooo I bought a few thangs from America!!! Well from Sephora to be precise!!! Can I get a whoop whoop! No? Alrighty then.

The main reason I decided to splurge on Sephora (when you factor in customs, it's a splurge!) was because I suddenly needed the highlight that Jaclyn Hill created with becca cosmetics.

champagne pop, jaclyn hill

I give you Champagne Pop and it's beautiful! A deep golden shade that at first, I thought I was too pale for but it blends beautifully!

I also picked up the becca shimmering skin perfector in opal. I got the travel size to try first. I have a matte foundation that's a little too matte for me. Hopefully this will soften the effect and give me that inner glow ;)

Next I got a tattoo liner by Kat Von D. I chose black as I use that more and I decided to buy the limited edition one.

Think it was $5 extra but I wasn't bothered as I think the design is awesome, as well as the cool box it came in. The limited edition was to celebrate 5 years of the tatto liner and KVD will donate a dollar to the California Wildlife Centre for every purchase :)

Then I clearly needed a lipstick! So I bought a KVD lipstick in Lullaby which is a beautiful purple/pink with glitter flecks! :D 

I was lucky enough to get a mini KVD lippie in Lovecraft, as I had some points from the beauty insider club and this was one of the products in my point range! Happy Dance! It's a lovely mauve type nude. Matte finish and the lasting power is impressive :)

Lastly I decided to try the Sephora bright set finishing powder which is basically a banana powder. It's a loose pigment so we shall see how that works for my pale face. Lol. 

Finally I grabbed some free samples which is always nice :)

Although my mum decided to commandeer these! Shocking behaviour! Haha.

Anyway that's my little spurge! The great thing about shopping with Sephora is they charge you the customs at checkout. No hidden costs or Royal Mail charges if you're UK based. I did buy some extra bits, as its only £6 shipping if you spend over £75 instead of nearly £20 if I'd just bought the highlight (I mean I practically saved money, right?) lol

Really fast dispatch and it arrived in under 2 weeks! So if you've been wanting to try American shopping, what you waiting for? Cue Gwen Stefani 'what you waiting, what you waiting, what you waiting for?! Haha Check out and have fun! :D

Much Love,

  1. The sephora is amazing in the US compared to england and so much cheaper too!

    1. I'd love it if Sephora came to the UK. When I placed my order a few things weren't allowed to be included :( x

  2. I'm so tempted to make an order! Especially as all the costs are included! Love the shade of the Lovecraft lipstick!

    1. If you feel indulgent then go for it! The added customs is a great thing, so much easier than messing around with royal mail charges. The KVD lippies are really nice to wear and Lovecraft is a beautiful day colour if you don't want to rock bright. lol x


Thank you so much for taking the time to read and comment. I really appreciate it :)
