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.

-M-

London haul part two.

So, the London haul continues. I don`t really have that much to show you guys, but here it is =)

Revlon Colorstay Foundation

I had heard so many great things about Revlon Colorstay Foundation on You Tube, so when I saw it in London I thought I`d give it a go. I don`t normally wear foundation these days, and most certainly not in the summer, but hey. I got mine in the shade 180 Sand Beige, and it`s the one for combination/ oily skin. The shade is a bit light for me at the moment, as the sun made a guest appearance last weekend, but I`ll save this foundation for darker times I guess… I`m super happy with the coverage, but that may just be me not being used to something that covers more than a BB cream and tinted moisturizers. But I do like it! I have only tried it on once, but I`m a fan. Sadly I don`t think we have Revlon in Norway, otherwise I would try to find it in a darker shade as well.

Next is the Neutrogena visibly clear 2 in 1 face wash and mask. I love this product, both as a wash and a mask. It has tiny tiny exfoliating beads in it, but not enough to call it a scrub if you get me. I haven`t seen this in Norway, but we have other Neutrogena products, so maybe I`ve just missed it. Will keep eyes open. (I did however buy two, so I guess I`m good for a while…)

I got two perfumes at Gatwick on my way home. One is the Stella McCartney Summer Rose, which we don`t have here as far as I know… (That seems to be the theme of this haul.) It`s lovely, fresh, floral and light, and I love it! It`s not a scent that lasts very long, but I can live with that. It`s yummy! The other perfume is my third bottle of the same one. Nina by Nina Ricci. This is also a floral, young perfume, but I find this lasts a bit longer, and is a bit stronger smelling. I think this will be one I`ll keep buying for many years. Loves it.

This is the Gosh long-lasting brow pen in the color Wheat. I saw this in Essiebutton`s browvideo on YouTube, and wanted to try it for myself. I think it`s great, and cool toned enough for me. I`ve never used anything like this for my brows, I´ve used brow pens and brown eyeshadows really… But now I`m converted. I think this is a great product, that is if you find the right shade. I know I´ve seen Gosh in Norway, so there`s actually a chance I`ll find this again when it runs out!

The last product in this haul, part two, is this serum from Soap and Glory. It`s the 6 in 1 superboost moisture lotion. It promises to give a dewy, smooth, amazing face. I used it morning and night when we were in London, and I really liked it! If it had SPF it would be perfect. It smells great, is light, moisturizing and simply very appealing to me. I have never really used a serum before, at least not one for daytime. I have a feeling it`s not the best serum for my skintype, but I still like it. (There`s something about the promise of a dewy face that makes me a tad wary.)

So, that`s it for now. I have bought a few more things since we got back, so there just might be another haul post coming up soon(ish). Hope you like it. I haven`t really included anything other than makeup and skincare, but maybe I`ll do that the next time.

So long =)
