What Happens When Your Brother Is Let Loose In Sephora

My brother Niall, was inter railing around Europe for two weeks, when he arrived in Prague he spotted a Sephora. You can probably guess how excited I was when I got a text wondering if I wanted anything! I was put on the spot with no research done so I sent him a long list of my makeup wish list and told him to pick up a few bits from the list. Himself and his friend did a very good job considering that they know absolutely nothing about makeup!

Sephora Collection Colour Lip Last
The first thing on my list was a Sephora matte lip cream, the one that all the bloggers rave about. He arrived home with a matte lipstick in a peachy rose colour. Obviously this isn't the same thing but I absolutely love it. It smells amazing and its a natural buildable colour. The number on the end is 4332D, from the swatches online Im guessing that its called 'Natural Pink' but Im not 100% certain. 

Sephora Collection Colourful Waterproof Eyeliner - Brown
If you are a brown mascara wearer you will understand how hard it is to find a brown liquid liner. The  next thing on my list was just that, because it is so hard to find here. I am so excited to experiment with this and start wearing winged eyeliner.  

Bare Minerals Original Foundation - Fairly Light n10
The next thing on my list was a translucent powder. Niall came home with a powder foundation. I have never tried a powder foundation and the colour is a prefect match so I am very excited to try this out and see how it compares to my liquid foundations.

Sephora Collection Nano Eyeliner - Glitter Brown 
The last thing that my brother got for me was a dark bronze eyeliner. I really wanted to try a bronze eyeshadow cream stick. Although this isn't an eyeshadow it is a gorgeous colour and is something different to the everyday brown liner that I usually wear. I have used this and it is wonderfully creamy and pigmented, it adds a tiny bit of shimmer to the lash line. 

As you can tell my brother did a great job and I am very thankful for my new makeup to play and experiment with!

Did you notice anything different about the pictures? I finally got a dslr camera, I got the Nikon D3200 camera! You can look forward to great quality pictures from now on instead of using my iPhone I'll be using my new camera. 

I hope you enjoyed this post,
