Paris Makeup Haul - Sephora and Mac

Yes I was excited about seeing the Eiffel Tower, and yes I was excited for croissants and cheese, but nothing gives you that flutter in your stomach like going outside of the UK and seeing a Sephora! (unless of course you're not from the UK, in which case chances are you live not far from a Sephora.. and in which case I am extremely envious!).

 It's quite funny because my boyfriend knows I get excited when I see a Sephora whilst on holiday, yet every time I try to play it cool and act like I don't care to go in. 'We can just go later if you like, babe?' I will say. In my head I'm like oh dear God I hope they have a Tarte counter haha. To which he responds, 'Come on, we're going in.' He knows how this unspoken game goes. So seeing as I've gabbed on about Sephora, this is where I will start with the haul. Once I have tried all of these products, I will review my favourites in more detail. Here goes..

So the first thing I picked up (actually Connor spotted this) is this clear travel case/ make up storage box. I love it! Sorry if it is hard to see on this picture but the case opens up in the middle and has two pull out storage trays which can open up to display everything to you when you're doing your make up. I was actually pleasantly surprised at just how much I can store in this, and I think I'll be using it more than just when travelling. I think this was around 25 Euros.

Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing gel
Too Faced - Better Than Sex Mascara
Beauty Blender
Smash Box oil free primer
Sephora liner sharpener
Elizabeth Arden 8 hour cream
Sephora Berry lipbalm
Repetto Eau Florale (free sample) 

I'm so excited to try all of these products, especially the creams because they are smaller sizes of the ones we get here in the UK so I can decide whether to repurchase instead of buying the full bottle here first. The only thing I can moan about is that the Champs-Elysee's store didn't have a Tarte or Anastasia Beverley Hills counter. I think I did quite well though?!

Now in all honesty, I never get quite as excited about Mac when I'm away, purely because we have them here in the UK. However, in the Mac counters closest to me (the Trafford Centre or Liverpool) they don't seem to do travel sizes. So you can imagine my excitement when I walk into Mac, having just spent 100 Euros in Sephora, to see a Pick n Mix travel size stand with everything being 7 Euros. I didn't want to go too mental, but I'll show you the bits I picked up..

Pigments in Kitschmas and BlueBrown
Blending Sponge (the shape got me more excited than a sponge should)
Studio Moisture Cream

So this was everything, I hope you liked this post just a quick show and tell. If you'd like to know more about my trip to Paris this week let me know in the comments and I'll write a post on it.

Thanks for reading x
