Paris Dreaming

3 weeks today I’m heading to Paris for a Christmas get away with my sister, and no trip to Paris is complete without a trip to Sephora and of course City Pharma. I have naturally made myself a list of essential items I plan to pick up whilst I’m there.
Straight at the top of my list is the famous Bioderma, I have gone through 3 500ml bottles of this stuff since my last visit to the city and I am excited to stock up (literally fill my case) with my beloved cleansing water.
La Roche Posay is a brand that I haven’t explored yet but I am excited to pick up a few cult favourites to add into my skincare routine; Effaclar Duo in particular.
Now my Sephora list is ever growing, but I have narrowed it down to the necessary products. I have picked up a few Sephora own-branded products in the past and have been seriously impressed with the results; I have heard a lot of good things about their cream lip stains which I’m sure ill be picking up a few (every shade).
MarcJacob’s Lolita eyeshadow palette has been on my wish list since it first came out and I still haven’t managed to get my paws on one. This will defiantly be going into my basket straight away.
Lastly I am going to pick up a few perfume rollerballs because sadly in the UK we don’t tend to get many rollerball perfumes but I think that they are a genius idea, so handy to just throw into your handbag. Some perfumes I want to try out are Elizabeth and James Nirvana black and white, and Stella McCartney, Stella.
I’m almost certain that I will come back with more than I can carry on the Eurostar without my bags breaking, if there’s anything else that I defiantly need to pick up whilst I’m there feel free to let me know in the comments below, on my twitter or on my facebook page.
Thanks for reading.
