When I went to Paris the one thing I was most excited about was going to Sephora, I have seen loads of beauty bloggers raving about the store and I was so jealous that there isn’t one close to me. Theres only a few stores, the main one being in America and a couple in France. At first I just thought it was an American thing but when my sister and I we’re looking through our Paris book for places to visit we stumbled across Sephora and I think I may have screamed with excitement, with only a 15 minute-ish walk away from our hotel I was even more excited to go there nearly everyday.
Before jetting off to France I signed up to be a ‘beauty insider’ meaning I would get emails through about new and exciting products and trends that Sephora offer. I got an email about a week before I went to France and it was about this new exciting makeup academy palette and it looked amazing, I read the email over and over just to make sure you could buy it in store (because I thought it was an online exclusive deal). Whilst browsing through the store my sister saw the palette sitting there in all it’s glory and she said I should get it, and that is exactly what I did.
The palette was €40 and you get 130 colours, 72 waterproof eyeshadow shades (some matte, shiny and glittery), 18 gel/creme eyeliners, 7 different blusher shades (creme and powder), 3 concealers, 1 eye primer and lip primer and 28 lip shades (creme, gloss and matte).
I am so excited to experiment with all of these different shades and this will allow me to explore a lot more looks. Next year for my photography course I am going to be doing all of my models makeup and photographing them for my project, so this palette is going to be perfect for that.
I can’t comment on the quality and pigmentation just yet as I haven’t used anything from it. But as soon as I start to experiment and have a play with all the pretty colours I will be able to tell you if it’s what I expected and if it’s worth €40. -Keep an eye out for that.
I brought a few more bits from Sephora but I am going to add them to my ‘Paris Haul’ post very soon.
