Paris New In 1

I purposely didn’t take my makeup/beauty bag along on my last trip to Paris, as I wanted to try and discover some new brands and products. I knew Sephora was on the horizon, and it’d been long since I got the chance to peruse it’s wonderful shelves! I also thought to myself “hmm..what ever I buy can remain in my travel/gym beauty bag” ..that way I don’t have to keep reaching for the stuff I’ve already laid out at home to use while getting ready. Smart huh? It now just means that my travel/gym beauty bag has more Chanel than my actually makeup collection at home! Haha! But I’m not complaining.

(Mind you there are a few products you may have already seen me use in the past, just couldn’t help getting them as they are so good!)

So without further ado, here are the bits I picked up…

    Such lovely purchases! I love the two chanel quads, the colors are so pretty! I’ve heard quite well about Sephora’s brushes – I have yet to try them tho’. (Which is silly since we have a Sephora where I live.. I’ll put it on the to-do! 😀 ) Also the Estee Lauder advanced night repair is one of my favorite skincare products! x

    I’m a fan of By Terry Velvet Rouge and Estee Lauder Day Wear cream. They are so good and worth the money!

    Wow what an amazing haul! I’m going to Paris in June and I’ll definitely be taking a note from your book and leaving my make-up bag at home. Those Chanel compacts are absolutely delightful.

    The Chanel eyeshadow quads are amazing! I almost got one for myself, but then I remembered I barely ever wear eyeshadow anyway so I changed my mind. But the colors are really absolutely beautiful 🙂

    I love the Sephora brush kit and that gorgeous mascara. So so pretty to look at; I’d probably be scared to use them
    And the Chanel is just a given. Forever in love with the coco.

    I currently use a cleansing balm from lush so I would love to hear what you think of the Clinque one. Also can’t wait to hear about the MUFEand Sephora brand products.

    Wonderful purchases! I love the Chanel Quatro eyeshadows, I actually own #204 and I love it! I’m definitely interested in the Estee Lauder products you picked up. Any thoughts about doing a review or updates on it? I’m looking for new luxury skincare products.

    Hey Shirley,

    Really pretty things you’ve got there.

    I think there’s an error in the deodorant name though.

    Love and Light, a huge fan!

    Been wanting to try Black up and use more Clinique products in my regimen. My mom swears by the brand.
