I can never go to France and not pop into Sephora while I'm there. I didn't go too mad. I had to pick up another Aqua Brow, as it's my go to brow product. I'd heard great things about Sephora's Cream Lip Stains, and as I'm a sucker for anything sparkly I picked up a glittery pink eyeshadow, and another MUFE Lab Shine lip gloss. I also popped into Yves Rocher for their Coconut eau de toilette .
I don't have an awful lot to say about the eyeshadow! It's a proper girly pink, and it's soft, pigmented, and blendable. The tester in store seemed to have more glitter than this one though. I'm hoping it's more glittery further down.
This picture shows off the sparkle in the eyeshadow and lip gloss!
I chose Lab Shine gloss in Shimmering Beige and I'm in need of good nude lip products. It's a pinked beige with golden shimmer. It goes on fairly sheer, and I'm sure it'll look great with a smokey eye. Lab Shine glosses smell really sweet, which I quite like. They're tasteless, which means I don't have the desire to lick it all off as soon as I put it on! They're non-sticky too.
After reading a few reviews I went in knowing that I wanted to get one of Sephora's Cream Lip Stains, and after much deliberation and swatching, I chose Strawberry Kissed. The name is spot on as it's a bright pinked-red, just like fresh strawberries. It goes on opaque in one swipe and dries down to a matte finish quickly. Once it dries it feels like you're not wearing anything at all on your lips. Staying power is amazing. Once dry is totally transfer proof. No leaving marks on glasses! It holds up through a meal well, providing it's not oily food (oil removes pretty much all makeup). I'm so impressed with the formula that I wish I could get my hands on more colours right now! I've been on the hunt for years for a good transfer proof red lipstick for my kit for brides, and this is perfect. I seriously recommend trying these out for yourself!
