Paris Haul

In my previous post I showed you what makeup I took with me when I went to Paris, now is time to show you what I bought. Let´s just say mama went a little nuts and clearly was feeling spendy! My poor wallet is still crying from the money that is no longer there!!

First I went to Sephora and did some damage, I bought the Estée Lauder Perfectionist Foundation, I have been wanting this for awhile but couldn't find my shade, I haven´t used it enough to have much of an opinion, but when it comes to foundation i don´t think Estée Lauder foundations are for me, simply because I have such a hard time finding a shade that suits me they all look very orangey or pink for my liking, oh the struggle! I also bought the Smashbox Camera Ready CC Cream which I have yet to use. I also bough the Smashbox Photo Finish Primer, that I have been enjoying using.
I bought the Chanel Vitalumière Aqua in the Airport, I have heard so many good things about it that I finally caved in and bought it and I have to say I love it! I didn´t think I would because is quite light but I do, it covers pretty much everything I need, I hardly need concealer.
Back to what I bought at Sephora, I had to pick up more of the By Terry Ombre Black Star, this time in the shades Misty Rock and Beyond Gold, Yas it´s love! They are amazing!!! Love Love these!
My little drugstore purchase was the Maybelline Color Drama Intense Velvet Lip Pencil in 210 Keep it Classy.
Next I went to Printemps and I went a little wild! First I went to Nars and finally bought 2 lip products that have been sold out everywhere, I couldn't find anywhere or online, so I was so excited when they had it there. The lipsticks in question are the Nars Audacious lipstick in Anna and the Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Damned.
And now for the grand finale I went to the Tom Ford counter! I have been wanting Tom Ford Makeup for so long and now finally took the plunge. I had one lipstick when Tom Ford Beauty first launched with the white packaging. I bought 3 Lipsticks in Pink Dusk, Indian Rose and Violet Fatale and 3 Eyeshadow Quads, Cocoa Mirage, Golden Mink and Cognac Sable. I love them! I have been having so much fun playing around with them!

So here it my Paris Haul.

The Paris Makeup Bag

Recently I went to Paris, so I thought that I would break down what I took with me.
I tried not to get carried away and just bring the bare minimal. I did just that except I brought quite a few lip options!
For my base I brought the Bourjois 123 CC Cream, I love the coverage it gives, it´s one my favourite foundations ever! For concealer I went with my Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer, currently obsessed with this to cover my under eyes circles, sexy I know!
For blush I actually took 2, the Benefit Dallas, a current favourite, I´m so obsessed with this blush that I have to force myself to use something else! I also took the Nars blush in Gina ( not in the photo) , a  favourite of mine, but most of the time I used Benefit Dallas. For bronzer I took Nars Laguna, one of my Holy Grails, I love it so much!
For my eyeshadow I took my beloved Mac Soba, I can´t go anywhere without this! My favourite eyeshadow of all time! I actually have 2, one in my Mac palette and another in the pan , that´s how much I love it! I also brought the Dior palette in 796 Cuir Cannage, a beautiful neutral palette. For mascara I obviously took another holy grail of mine the Max Factor False Lash Effect Mascara.
Finally for lips here´s where I went a bit mental, I brought Mac Patisserie ( holy grail), Maybelline Color Elixir in 725 Caramel Infused, Nars Audacious Lipstick in Anita, Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Doce Vita , Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in 92 Èmotion.

I also did quite a bit of shopping, haul coming soon....
