So, I picked up a few new things =) Part 2.

Here are a few more things I got on my trip abroad =)

First and most amazingly it`s the Bourjois Magic Nail polish remover. This is an AMAZING product! I had heard so many wonderful things about this one, but I don`t think we have it in Norway. At least I haven`t seen it anywhere… So I had to pick up a couple when I found it in Palma. And I put it to the test with a red nail polish. I usually look like I have been eating strawberries after removing red polish, with pink fingertips. I had a lot of faith in this pink pot, but I was really surprised when my fingers came out looking perfect after just a couple of seconds in this thing! Wow! I soooo recommend this! It will save me…well…minutes and minutes! =)

Next up is my La Roche-Posay Toleriane Soothing protecting skincare. I got this to use it after long days in the sun. I have quite a few moisturizers, but none of them are just soothing. They all do something in the lines of resurfacing or treating blemishes. I`m super happy with this one, as it really just soothes and calms the skin. I think this is one I`ll always have in my skincare regime, as I feel it`s really good for my skin. I`m beginning to really love this brand! I continue to be pleasantly surprised by it =)

Then there`s the Korres Yoghurt moisturizing mask for normal to combination skin. I had actually only heard about this mask once, but when I saw it at the airport on my way home I thought I`d get it, as it wasn`t that expensive. (It`s only 16 ml/ 0,54 fl.oz though…) I tried it the same night, after a good and much needed scrub. It`s only supposed to be left on for 15 minutes, but I actually just kept it on. (After 15 minutes there wash`t really anything to rinse away anyway.) Maybe I put on too thin of a layer, I don`t know. My skin loved this mask! It felt so good, and very natural. A little goes a long way as well, and it`s quite liquidi, so I thin this little tube will last a while. I look forward to trying more of their products in the future!

The Biotherm lip balm is actually the one thing I didn`t like out of the things I bought. I tastes so bad! It kinda tastes like body lotion or something. I don`t care if it does great things, you just can`t make a lip balm taste bad. End of story. Blah.

The lipstick in the picture is Lancome Rouge in Love, shade 146B. It`s a bright coral, great for summer. This is actually my first high-end lipstick, and I`m really happy with it. I don`t have all that many lipsticks, and the ones I have are either really “wearable” pinks or bright reds. I really wanted something a bit different for summer, and one that didn`t have any glitters or shimmer at all. This one was perfect! (Although, it of course is not the most flattering of colors when it comes to your teeth. The do look a bit yellow…) Still, very happy with this one!

I always buy a new perfume when I travel, and this time it was the Jimmy Choo eau de toilette. I actually kind of regret not getting the eau de parfum, but oh well… I love it. It`s nice. (Said in a Borat manner.)

Yesterday I mentioned some shoes that I got. Here they are! I got them at Zara, and I love them! I haven`t worn them yet, that`s why I even let them up on my bathroom sink area. Aren`t they just glorious?! 

So, I think that`s kinda it for this time. Hope you liked looking at my new stuff =) I`d really like it if you left a comment, saying if you liked these two posts or not. Still kinda new to this blogging, and it takes me forever to write a post, so it would be nice to hear what you think =)

So, I picked up a few new things =) Part 1.

It`s been a while since my last post. Mainly because I had my “no buy month” of June, and then because I knew I was going to be buying some more stuff when I was traveling in my holiday. Sooo, I`m back, and I brought stuff back with me! I`m going to split this post into two parts, as I don`t want it to be too long.

I was in Palma, Mallorca in Spain, and the have Sephora there… Oh, Lord have mercy, I loved it! I have never been to a Sephora before, so you can believe I was excited! I didn`t actually have too much money to spend in there, as the trip itself was kind of expensive, but here are the things I did get.

I had really been looking forward to getting the Sephora Professional mineral powder brush, number 45. I had read some great things about it, so I bought two. (Remembering how I regretted only buying one of the Real techniques stippling brush when I was in London in May.) I bought it mainly to use with the Bare minerals original foundation. I used to use this foundation a while back, and liked it. I didn`t love it however. Then I read a blog post saying that it was a whole other product when used with this Sephora brush. And I must say, it really is! The brush that came with the Bare Minerals set I got way back, sucks! It`s so rough! I really recommend you try this combo, as it is truly great. Loving it! I definitely think the mineral foundation is doing great things for my skin. I have combination skin, prone to breakouts, and at the moment my skin is looking really good and healthy. I think a lot of that has to do with the Bare Minerals =)

At Sephora I also picked up three small Sephora Eau de toilettes; one with green tea, one with peony, and one with cotton flower. Love them all. I`m a bit scared to use them, tough, as I don`t know where I could get new ones when they`d run out. Oh, well. Not exactly a real problem tough, is it…? Hehe.

I also got the Too Faced Shadow Insurance. I have seen this in so many blogs and YouTube videos, I just had to get it. Plus, I only have a sample size of the Urban Decay Primer Potion, and that won`t last me very long, now will it..? So, I actually needed this one! Yay! I haven’t really tested it yet, but I`m sure it will be great. I`ll let you know if I don`t get on with it.

So, that`s the end of part one. This is all stuff I got from Sephora. In the next part are the things I got at the airport and a couple of other places. I`m actually going to show you some shoes as well, `cause they`re AWSOME! Hihi.
