Whenever I go to the US, I make it top of my priority list to visit Sephora and their multitude of drugstores at least once. There are so many products there that aren't available in the UK, so to miss out on picking up something you can't get over here is a no brainer.
This particular trip I didn't acutally end up buying up as much as I'd initially imagined. I made the rule to only get brands that I can't get over here (or can't get easily) so generally stuck to my favourite products as well as a few new bits smattered alongside.
From Sephora I picked up two perfume roller balls - Elizabeth and James Nirvana Black (which I've reviewed here) and a new addition to my collection, NEST - Indigo. Indigo is a gorgeous fresh and fruity scent with hints of wild fig and bergamot mixed with Moroccan tea and Kashmir wood making for a beautiful scent that transitions perfectly from day to evening.
I also picked up my ever faithful Make Up Forever HD Foundation (which I forgot to photograph) and a Tarte Amazonian Blush in Doll Face. Doll Face is a very easy-to-wear soft pink shade that I would imagine compliments most skin tones.
From the drug store I just picked up two products for myself - a Milani Rose Powder Blush in Tea Rose and my favourite lip product of all time - the Burt's Bees Tinted Lip Balm in Pink Blossom. This is a super soft, buttery lip balm in a gorgeous deep pink shade that isn't too dissimilar to my natural lip colour. I couldn't be without it!
On the whole I think I was pretty restrained, which may have been as I'll be near Sephora again in June. I just wish that Sephora would extend to the UK so some of my favourite make up products were more readily available!
