Brand Obsession: Sephora

13 Mar

For anyone not familiar with Sephora: imagine a whole department store of cosmetics. It sells more brands than you even knew existed – from Benefit to Make Up Forever to Illamasqua to Bumble & Bumble to Shiseido – plus their own-brand.

As well as make-up and nail goodies you’ll find beauty accessories (from eyelash curlers to pumice stones to orange sticks), hair care and styling, body products and miracle products that get rid of your wobbly bits from brands such as Bliss. There is essentially nothing else you could possibly ever need.

Something about the bright, rainbow packaging is irresistible.  It’s kind of childish but chic at the same time; it looks like sweeties. It gives me that ‘I WANT IT ALL’ feeling.

These are some of my favourite Sephora purchases. I’ve been pleasantly surprised with the quality of the brushes, the  3-toned bronzer gives a lovely colour (and has an inexplicably lovely smell), and the ‘vinyl lip crayon’ I absolutely can’t get enough of, it’s a great product.
