Sephora Own Brand Haul From Paris

Sephora Own Brand Haul From Paris

Last month I headed to Paris for four days and I didn’t actually realise until nearing going that there were Sephora’s there. I already had a list as long as my arm (and more) for when I head to the States, and due to the shitty Euro exchange rate I knew things would be a little pricey. I opted to stick to just the Sephora own brand products during this mini haul so that I can get everything else in the States where it’s going to much cheaper.

To begin with I wanted a bunch of face masks to try and I chose one face sheet mask, one eye mask, and two sleeping masks. I wanted a good mixture so I can try them out and make a decision on which ones are worth buying when I return. I liked the idea of the sleeping masks as you can apply a thin layer to your skin and let it sink in while you sleep. I have yet to try out these face masks so keep an eye open for what I think.

Next up I got two of the Sephora lip stains as I had heard so many great things about them and I was not disappointed. I chose 05 which is a nude shade with a slight shimmer, great for everyday wear, and 06 which is a pale- mid pink colour which is really striking and not too barbie looking. The lip stains glide onto my lips really easy, don’t stain if I make a mess (which does happen a lot) and only stays liquid for a few minutes before settling matte. Once it dries the lipstick has great staying power and easily lasts most of my working day including eating lunch, and they aren’t drying. A massive thumbs up from me and I’ll definitely be stocking up on a few more in New York.

Next up was some eye products including a thin-nibbed black liquid eyeliner pen cause ya know you can never have enough and some eye make-up remover. I wanted to buy a bigger version of this but alas I only had hand luggage so had to be careful but this is seriously good stuff. I used it in the store to remove the swatches on my hand and they all came off in one swipe, and when used on my heavily made up eyes it doesn’t take much to clean them up. I’m going to be getting the biggest bottle I possibly can when I head back to Sephora. I also opted for a small perfume as I have been meaning to get one for my bag for ages and this one smelt super fresh.

I then decided to grab one of their dry brush cleaners, now that works a bit like dry shampoo and when I realise I need to use a brush, but it’s dirty and I don’t have time to wash it, I can use some of the spray and rub it in like dry shampoo to use. Naturally it works much better on eyeshadow/ blusher brushes as opposed to heavy foundation brushes, and it isn’t a long-term solution but it works well.

The final items I snapped up were some nail varnishes. After eight years I have finally had my gel nails removed so I pretty much own no nail varnish so this needed to change. I bought three fairly neutral shades including a light coral, a grey and a nude and they’re all such nice colours that I can’t wait to properly try them out.

Is there anything which catches your eye from Sephora’s own brand?

    Did you go to that massive one down the champs? I was OVERWHELMED it was so good! There’s a few Sephoras in Paris. I got a massive haul when I went there last year too 🙂

      Yes this is the one I went to. It was massive but cause of the euro price pretty expensive 🙁 x

    Im not a makeup sort of person, only wear it on the odd night out and if im honest I don’t have a clue about the best types for myself or anything haha.
    The brush cleaners sound a great invention though.

    I didn’t even know there were sleeping masks available. As long as they don’t stain the sheets, I’d totally try them.

    I love sephora, good idea on only buying own brand products in Paris. I must get myself some of the lip stains!

  5. May 10, 2016 / 6:11 pm

    I have to admit I have heard so much abut Sephora but I have never really checked it out for myself. I probably should do! x

    I have not heard of this brand Sephora, it looks like they have a nice range of cosmetics.

  7. May 10, 2016 / 7:36 pm

    I shopped Sephora while I was in Paris last yr. I love that place x

    I’ve not heard of this brand before. I love the shades you got. Sound like a nice range of products

  10. May 10, 2016 / 9:21 pm

    I’ve never heard of this brand but the products look lovely.

    I love Sephora such a great place to get all cosmetics and fragrances . R

    Beautiful colour glosses! This sounds like a lovely brand (and I’m still so envious of your Paris trip!)

  13. May 11, 2016 / 7:19 am

    The nail polish looks lovely, I like the grey one the most. Do you know if they last long?

    I love the lip stains, I don’t think I’d be disappointed either. They are such pretty colours. A facemask while you sleep sounds great!! I’ve tried a couple of face masks recently, I’d love to try the sephora selection though! 🙂 xx

    The lip stains look gorgeous. I do love muted reds and browns, and these are lovely.

  16. May 11, 2016 / 1:07 pm

    They’re very vivid colours, looks like a great haul from Sephora! Never been there myself but I’ve heard they’re brill quality 🙂

  17. May 11, 2016 / 1:09 pm

    I’m loving the lip stains, also you can never have too many eyeliners.. I have so many although I’m pretty loyal to one! I’m hating how bad the exchange rate is on the euro, I fly to Spain at the end of the month and it’s depressing me how little I’m going to get for my pound! xx

    • May 11, 2016 / 1:49 pm

      I feel you, the exchange rate for most places isn’t great 🙁 x

  18. May 11, 2016 / 1:25 pm

    I love the look of Sephora, I’m always tempted to look online as I don’t think I’ll be going to the states soon. I didn’t know there was one in Paris!

    • May 11, 2016 / 1:49 pm

      There are actually quite a few in Paris because apparently France is where the brand started! x

    I’m SO jealous! I need to go to Sephora one day, I don’t yet why we don’t have one in the UK.

    I haven’t tried too many Sephora own brand products so to see your haul was great for me. I have tried their micellar water though and it is good xxx

    The Sephora lip stains are gorgeous especially the pink 06 stain, I really want to try a Sephora product.

    I am not too familiar with their products but from the photo really liking both the lip stains – both look really lovely.

  24. May 12, 2016 / 11:11 am

    I love Sephora and their products are always amazing. I do love that lipstain!

    Just bought the facial masks for gifts/souvenirs from paris. My friend said it’s a fantastic product.

    I fear for both of our bank accounts when we visit Sephora in NY! I need to replace my Kat Von D Tattoo Liner


  27. May 13, 2016 / 6:38 pm

    I am loving the lip stain as sounds like some of the lipsticks I own. I first bought anything from Sephora last year when I went to the states.

    I am loving the colour of those lip stains very feminine and pretty. The dry brush cleaner sounds like a great idea.
