Sephora Haul

Sephora haul: Urban Decay Naked 3 palette; Tarte Amazonian clay 12-hour blushes "Tipsy" & "Exposed";
Formula X for Sephora "The System".

Recently a lovely friend of mine, Amy, went on a trip to New York and very kindly said she would pick up some things for me at Sephora. I could hardly contain my excitement and spent far too many hours devising my wish list and refining it. I changed my mind on what products I would most like to get so many times. Sephora makes choosing so difficult for someone so indecisive as myself. In then end I decided upon products which were hard to get a hold of in Australia and/or significantly cheaper at US recommended retail price. My final wish list was as follows:

Urban Decay Naked 3 palette; Tarte Amazonian clay 12-hour blushes in Tipsy and Exposed; Formula X for Sephora The System; and the Lorac Pro palette.

Unfortunately the Lorac Pro palette was nigh on impossible to find. Sephora and Ulta were sold out/no longer stocking it in stores and apparently now only available online. Sigh. But I cannot be disappointed because I was presented with a black and white Sephora bag and inside, oh boy, were my lusted treasures. 

Urban Decay Naked 3 palette - I've swatched it and used it once so far. I like it a lot and it's a unique addition to my collection. It complements my grey-blue eyes and light-medium skin tone nicely. 

Tarte Amazonian clay 12-hour blushes - I'm so pleased with the colours I chose. I've been looking for a colour like Tipsy for so long and I think would look great with a tan and fresh-faced summer makeup. Exposed is a neutral shade which will look good with a variety of makeup looks. 

Formula X for Sephora The System + Hyperactive effects top coat - this kit comes with a nail cleanser, base coat and top coat. You then get to choose any colour or topcoat to slot into the packaging. I used the system last night and whilst I can't yet comment on the longevity, my manicure is very shiny and I'm pleased with the initial result. The topcoat I chose gives an opalescent effect and is very pretty.

Thank you so much Amy for picking these items up for me! 

What products are on your wish list right now?

Talk soon x x

  4. I need to get Naked3! I can't spend $80+ on it from Beauty Bay though ... I'm so disappointed they greedily hiked up the price. Guess I'll have to wait until it comes back in stock from a UK retailer that ships for free internationally.

    1. I totally agree and I think they also increased the prices of Naked 1 and 2 which is a shame. Good luck with your quest! What retailer do you use? x x
