In October I went to Paris with my best friend who is a makeup artist. I took her advice on products as I went around Sephora with her on the Champ Elysees. I treated myself to several lovely items, some pencils, and a gorgeous makeup bag, as well as some makeup remover, all of which I am very happy with the quality of.
I sampled some great perfumes while I was at Sephora too. I placed the sticks into my bag, and it made all of my purchases smell gorgeous!
I was very lucky as well that when I mentioned I was a blogger while paying, I was also given some samples from Nuxe to test. Once thoroughly tested I will be doing a separate blog post on them.
The makeup bag/pouch was €12.95 and has a very attractive Paris skyline design. It’s a good size too, and I use it to store my eye makeup.
Here are the sample swatches of the pencils that I bought (top to bottom).
Sephora crayon contour eye pencil no26 ‘suede shoes’ (navy blue) 12 hour wear, waterproof at €7.95
Sephora crayon contour eye pencil no33 ‘love affair’ (purple/brown) 12 hour wear, waterproof at €7.95
Sephora crayon yeux mini eye pencil to go no8 (dark grey) at €4.95
The pencils are excellent quality and are easy to apply due to the crayon texture. I’m very pleased that I got them, and I used them for my Halloween makeup this year.
I thoroughly enjoyed my shopping experience and the products I bought from Sephora.
I hope you have enjoyed this beauty post, thank you reading today.
I would really recommend a walk into Sephora if you find yourself in Paris, it’s an incredible store filled with great products and incredible brands too.

I’m so incredibly lucky to have a friend of mine who is a makeup artist. She recently went to Paris, one of my favourite cities, sadly I couldn’t go with her this time, but lucky for me she brought me back some Sephora products to try out and review. When she got back from France she said to me, Sabrina, you have to try Sephora!
The two items I’m going to be talking about are the Sephora ‘Must-have makeup palette’ and the Sephora ‘Triple action gentle makeup remover gel‘.
This amazing little palette is handbag friendly, it contains both matte and shimmer shades and not only that but it even has a mirror. Compact and durable packaging make it ideal to carry around, the only thing it doesn’t have is an applicator. This is easily solved for me because of my mini brush set from Makeup Revolution that lives in my handbag.
The gentle makeup remover gel is excellent and does exactly as described. It’s both gentle on your skin and good at removing stubborn makeup. Because it’s a gel rather than a liquid I found that just a little on a cotton pad goes such a long way, handy with the small size as well, ideal for holidays I think.
If you’re headed abroad it’s always interesting to find some local and contrasting products to what might be available to you back home. I was very grateful to my friend for getting me these pieces to try!
Thank you very much for reading this review today, I have more makeup related posts coming in the Autumn.
