My first ever Sephora lipgloss

One of the only downsides to blogging and following loads of other blogs is that I constantly come across brands that I’d really like to try but can’t get my hands on here in Belfast. Well, unless I resort to the interwebs but of course that opens a whole other can of worms!

I’d give my right arm to be able to browse in a shop selling Hard Candy, NYX, Cover Girl, Wet n Wild and Sephora goodies :)

So you can imagine my excitement when I won Nats giveaway, which included Sephora lipglosses! As soon as the package arrived I ripped into it and applied the gloss pretty much straight away… and of course there was that tense delay where I waited with baited breath wondering if it would live up to my expectations. And it did. YAY!!
The little wand applicator is sooo odd, I’ve never come across one in this shape but it’s actually pretty good for application and the colour is fantabulous

Shade 16 - much more subtle than it looks in the tube!

I was almost hoping I’d hate this because it would put an end to my Sephora obsession but alas, it’s not to be ♥

That wand does look odd but I like sponge applicators better than brushes!

I almost got a Sephora lip gloss last time I was there, I know I should have gotten one!

It's so interesting how we all want what we can't have...dying to try some Sleek palettes & Liz Earle!

You and I are so alike! The things I want to try are all out of the US and I want to try them all out. :D You know if you would like to have a beauty swap I would love to. Just let me know if you do. You're such an awesome person I would love to. Just let me know if you are interested. :)

=D There's a Sephora in Singapore but that's like a thousand miles away from me (lol, apparently it's in a neighbouring country)
I agree with you about reading and discovering brands that we couldn't get where we're at (yes Wet n Wild, I'm talking to YOU!XD) and it's frustrating!
That looks nice and the applicator is really odd! XD I've never tried Sephora lip glosses..ever..haha..

Straight Up Glam said...

This looks like such a pretty gloss! There is a Sephora in my city, and I've actually never tried their brand of lipgloss. Hmm.. Now you make me want to give them a try! =)

I'm the same as you with regards to American branded makeup! I've been trawling through ebay and UK blog sales of any coveted brands I want to try.

Small comfort that we've Sleek and Barry M, eh? :D

I've only made my first US order on Nyx products from Cherry Culture recently - so hard to keep it small and not add everything I've ever heard about into the basket! You're welcome to check it out on my blog :D
