This post is well overdue, but I just thought I’d share what I picked up in Paris earlier this month. I had a lot of Euros left over from previous trips so I was able to treat myself a bit, which was nice after living the student life all these months.
Bioderma – After seeing this mentioned in just about every beauty video, blog post & instagram photo, I decided to join the craze. I have quite sensitive skin in general, my eyes particularly so, and with all the liquid eyeliner I wear, this is perfect for me. In all honestly it’s probably not that different from any other sensitive eye makeup remover I’ve used, however I do like the fact that it is fragrance free & comes in such a big bottle. I think I paid around €11 for this 500ml bottle in a pharmacy just off Champs-Élysées.
Auchan facial toner – Auchan is a huge French supermarket we always visit when we go to France. It’s pretty similar to Tesco & Sainsbury’s except they really do sell just about everything. I was running low on toner and when I saw they sell it in such a big quantity I couldn’t resist, especially as it only cost about
€1,99! I’ve yet to try it so it will be interesting to see how it works.
Sephora Professionnel angled liner brush #15 – One of the places I was reeally excited to visit was Sephora haha! I always visit them whenever I’m abroad+see one, it’s a store I really wish we had in England. I’d never actually bought anything from there until now, so I was quite literally beside myself. I mentioned in my Christmas wishlist I was on the hunt for an angled brush, and I’m so happy I finally got one! I’ve only used it to apply gel liner so far, but I plan to use it to create a smudged smokey eye look.
Sephora Professionnel angled blush brush #40 – another brush I’d been dying to get my hands on. I’ve been using it to apply bronzer & create those defined cheekbones that are otherwise non-existent!
On another note I apologise about how awful I’ve been with blogging recently, but hopefully I can rectify that over the next few days. I hope you enjoyed reading about my Parisian purchases!
