What to buy from Sephora when visiting the States

Whilst in the US on my travels I did the cliched blogger thaaang and went and did a Sephora haul - you just can't help it when you're there.....they're EVERYWHERE! Anyway, I did know what I was after before we even got on the plane so it didn't take very long to pick up my essential pieces.

All stores were sold out of the Anastasia Beverly Hills liquid lipstick in 'Crush' which I was a little disappointed about but other than that I think I picked up everything - my focus was obviously on items that were quite hard to get in the UK.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brow

This was an absolute must on my list and when you go in to Sephora it can be a bit difficult to make a choice as there are just so many shades and brow options! I went for 'Soft Brown' and have used every day - going from a Benefit and Makeup Revolution set of brows to this is game changing, this stuff glides on and lasts forever, I seriously can't imagine ever using another product!

Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick

This is a must for anyone popping over to the States to try and there certainly has been a lot of hype! I picked up Pure Hollywood as the shades I wanted were out of stock and Dolce looked a lot darker in real life! I actually have found it to be really drying - it's quite a marmite product in that respect and doesn't work for everyone. I'm going to experiment a bit with lip balms and liners underneath to see if it makes a difference - the colour actually dries a lot more nude than I was expecting so I want to find a way to make it a bit more pinky if I can.

Becca Highlighter

Of course I had to purchase the iconic Jacklyn Hill Champagne Pop highlighter from Becca and I am very figuratively blown away! It is an amazing highlighter and you only need to tiniest amount, I can totally understand the hype.

Now I believe that you can purchase this in the UK, however, I was umming and ahhing over the ABH glow kit and wanted to see it in person before making a decision. I quite soon decided that I really didn't need 4 highlighters so went for the Becca one in the end and am absolutely loving it! Definitely recommend picking this one up, I can't fault it!

Kat Von D Tattoo Liner

Another iconic item (I should probably put some sort of disclaimer of 'Youtube made me buy it'). I've only used this once so far so can't be totally explicit about how good it is but I must say it's really black....like seriously black. I put a tester on my hand in store and it was still there 2 days later after having two showers a day and spending time by the pool. Safe to say it definitely has staying power.

Tarte Amazonian Clay

This is the second shade of this one that I own after I was gifted 'Blushing Bride' for my wedding - it was then that I fell in love with these blushers. I actually chose this as my free gift at checkout which required no hesitation at all. This particular shade 'Risque' is a much more nudy pink and so is perfect for a bronzy make up look. They claim to last 12 hours and honestly I struggle to fault them - they last forever as well, I can't seem to ever hit pan!
