Here is the last of my Spain hauls and the most special one! Its from Sephora! I wasn’t sure if it qualifies as a Sephora haul, becuase most of the purchase was from the Nars Counter. Nevertheless its from Sephora, the Mothership of all makeup and I am pretty excited to finally share it with you!
Sephora Formula X Nail Polish €12.5: These were very very expensive but the hype around them overpowered the cost. I picked up one shade from the aisle, Monumental and obviously it was a nude! I cannot have enough nude nail polishes in my stash and ridiculously find subtle differences in each shade to justify the purchase! 😛 I am glad I didnt pick up more because I bought a few shades from KIKO at much much less the cost and pretty good quality.
Makeup Forever Rouge Artist Natural Lipstick #15 €26 : This was an impulse and unnecessary purchase. I really like MUFE lipsticks but didn’t need another “my-lips-but-better” shade! This is pretty natural on me and the shade is similar to Nars Dolce Vita lipstick. I was actually looking for #9 but found this to be a little lighter and a bit more coral. It looks quite dark in the picture but is pretty sheer in application.
Nars Jungle Red Lipstick €26 : My heart bleeds when I pay nearly double the amount for things I have bought in the US! Nars and Bobbi Brown are so expensive in the EU, actually everything is! Anyways, sulking aside, I picked up quite a few things from Nars while some were repurchases, this lipstick was new! Its like a matte and more pigmented version of the Lipstick Queen Saint in Eden and I love it! Nars lipsticks are my absolute favorites and this matte is weightless and very comfortable on! Along with Nars Tzigane, I think I have my staple nude and red in order!
Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer €27 Ginger: This baby and I are finally united! This has been on my list of things to try for a long time now! Its flawless and hydrating and beautiful on the skin. I like it especially on the drier parts so I guess it’ll work really well in winters. More on this after I have used it more.
Nars Cordura Duo Eye Shadow €34 : This was the most expensive splurge but one I have been lusting after for a while! Its a beautiful combination of a shimmery-yet-buttery bronze and muted-glittery-black-brown. What a description! This is combination of colors that I see myself using a lot!
Nars Smudge-Proof Eye Shadow Base €25 : This was a repurchase. I am nearly at the end of my current tube and cannot imagine any eye makeup without this. I have oily lids that makeup eye shadows crease a lot and this is the best one out there! I have also tried the Tarte primer for eyes and that does not compare to this one!
With this we are officially on a spending ban for a while now! I have allowed myself to get only body moisturizers for now. we’ll see how that goes! 😉
Have you tried any of this before? Which do you like best? Let me know!
Thanks a lot for reading! 🙂
