Make-up Forever HD Foundation - This foundation was on my 'need to buy list' I had been wanting to try it for ages as I have heard lots of good things. The HD stands for High Definition, it is basically a foundation that is meant to look undetectable even in HD images. I have seen a lot of Make-up artists use this foundation as well. I got mine in the shade 'N123', one of the good things about this product is the big shade range, so you wont have trouble finding a shade for you. I have tried this foundation a few times now and so far I am really liking it. The finish is very natural, it isn't matte but it isn's dewy either instead it sits somewhere in between which I would describe as a natural skin-like finish. One thing that I like about this foundation is that you can not see it on the skin! even when I have looking in a magnifying mirror I can not see foundation sitting on top of the skin which is great!

Anastasia Brow Duo Powder 'Medium Ash/Medium Brown' - Again this was on my list of products to buy along with the Brow Wiz pencil that I showed in my last post. I have the shade 'Medium Ash/Medium Brown' It comes in a cute little black and rose gold compact with a mirror. You get two shades, one lighter shade and one darker shade. I have been using this ever since I got it along with the Brow Wiz and it is amazing! It makes it so easy to get perfect brows... for all you brow lovers like myself, this product is a must try!

Buxom Full On Lip Polish 'Amber' - I love this lipgloss, it is one of those plumping lipglosses but the difference is I feel like this one actually works as apposed to others that I have tried. I am not a big fan of plumping glosses as I am do not like the feeling of them but this one doesn't bother me, it does tingle but just the right about, I actually like how it feels. I have the shade Amber which is a gorgeous peachy shade with gold shimmer.

Clinique Airbrush Concealer 'Neutral fair' - I have tried this concealer a few times now and I really like it for under my eyes and also to highlight the centre of my face as I got it a few shades lighter than my skin tone. It is a liquid creamy consistency that blends in easily and looks natural with light to medium coverage.

The last couple of bits were free samples. The Living Proof Primer - I actually got a sample of this with my first Sephora order and I also had a sample that I took to Florida with me. I used it all holiday and loved it. It is a primer for your hair which you apply on wet hair before styling or you can just leave it to air dry. It leaves my hair feeling really soft, more easy to manage, less frizz and it also helped to keep my style in for longer. My curls always fall out really quickly or when I straighten my hair it usually gets wavy throughout the day, but with this my curls lasted for much longer even in the humid, hot Florida weather. The second sample was the Becca Ever Matte Poreless Priming Perfecter - I haven't used this yet I tried a bit on my hand and it is very mattfying, I don't have oily skin so i felt like this would dry my skin out, if you do have very oily skin though i think this product is worth checking out as it is very mattyfying.

Let me know if you have tried any of these products, what do you think?

Sephora Haul: Part 1

Hey lovelies, it feels like forever since I last posted! I got back from Florida just over a week ago now, I went on holiday with my boyfriend and family and it was amazing! It was my second time over there and I loved it! We went to lots of parks, the Universal ones and Seaworld were some of my favourites! We ate lots of food! (oops) and did a fair bit of shopping! Of course I headed straight for Sephora, I actually went to Sephora on two different occasions so expect another Sephora haul soon! But for now I'll get straight onto the bits I picked up first...

Make-Up Forever HD Powder  - I picked this up by the cash registers, you know that bit that has all the mini sizes! This wasn't on my list of things to try but I saw it in a small size for $16 and I decided to give it a try. It is a very finely milled loose powder, I haven't got round to trying this yet but I'm hoping it will be good.

Beauty Blender - I already have a beauty blender and have already expressed my love for it! So if you want to know more read that review here. As I love it so much I decided to pick up a back up.

Hourglass Mineral Veil Primer - I got this in the smaller size as it is rather pricey so I thought I would see if I like it first. I have tried this once when I was on holiday and it is lovely, it made my skin feel quite matte but super soft! I don't have oily skin but I can still use this as I don't find it too mattyfying and it doesnt make my skin feel dry. It just makes a velvety soft base for make-up, I need to try it out a bit more before I can say if it makes make-up last longer... but so far so good.

Josie Maron Argan Oil - This is another repurchase for me, I picked up the small size when I went to New York last year and I love it! So I picked up the larger size this time. I use it mainly as a face oil and on my hair to hydrate. I usually apply to my face at night and it leaves my skin feeling so soft and hydrated!

Anastasia Clear Brow Gel - I haven't tried this yet but I needed a brow gel so I picked this one up, I'll let you know what I think when I've tried it out.

Wen Sweet Almond Mint Cleansing Conditioner - I am a fan of sulphate free shampoos as find they are much better for my hair, sulphates I find can be very drying. This is a sulphate free shampoo/conditioner, i had never tried anything like this before so i was interested to see what it was like. As it is a cleansing conditioner, you dont use a conditioner with it, you just use this one step. I have tried it twice now and so far i like it, it makes my hair soft but my hair has been more tangly lately and i'm not sure if it's down to this. 

Anastasia Brow Wiz Pencil 'Brunette' - I have been wanting to get my hands on this for a while now, I've heard great things about Anastasia brow products and this definelty lives up to the hype. I was using the Mac eyebrow pencil before but I much prefer the Anastasia one. I wont go to much into detail as I will be reviewing it on my blog soon but I love it! If don't live near a Sephora, you can purchase Anastasia Brow Wiz on

I also got a 'Birthday Gift' as I am a Sephora VIB member, which included mini sizes of Benefits They're Real Mascara which I have tried before, I like it but it isn't my favourite and lastly Benefits Watts up highlighter which is a nice creamy champagne highlight.

So thats everything I picked up on my trip to Sephora, I will be reviewing lots of these products individully so look out for that and also let me know if there are any particular products you would like to see a review on? I will be posting the second part of my Sephora haul next so keep a look out for that too!
