Yes, I did it! I went to Sephora to Brno, Czech Republic. I live in Austria where we don’t have any Sephora store :( But in Brno there is one, and so I decided with my sister to go there for one day. This Sephora store is located in a shopping mall called Olympia Brno. It is a small store, but we still found enough make up we wanted to buy, especially from brands, which are not available in Austria.
I definitely wanted to buy the Make up Forever Primers, because I always use primers and I also heard a lot of good things about them. I took one full-size bottle of the hydrating primer and one smaller bottle of the smoothing one. I like both of them, they feel very comfortable on the skin and make my foundations look really good.
I also took a sample of the Benefit Porefessional with me. I haven’t tried it yet, but I am going to use it in my T-Zone.
Last but not least I also bought an eyeshadow primer from Too Faced, which is called Shadow Insurance. I really like this primer! You have to set it with some loose powder, but it makes my eyeshadow last all day and my eyelid doesn’t get greasy (only if I wear eyeshadow for very long time, but I do have really really greasy eyelids).
I wanted to try the NARS Sheer Glow Foundation, because I heard a ton of good things about it. I have it in the shade Deauville, which is more of my „all year around“-shade, because I am naturally more on the paler side. I have already tried this foundation and I am obsessed with it! It is expensive, but it is so worth it! It feels amazing on the skin and looks very natural – I really love it!
The second foundation I bought is the Make up Forever HD Foundation, which is also very popular. I have it in the shade 120/Y245, which is more of my „summer tan“ – shade (but with concealer and stuff it would also match in winter). I tried this foundation once, and my first impression is very good. I also like it, but I have to try it more often to really say something about it.
3. Blush and Bronzer
I also wanted to try something from the Sephora brand and chose a blush in the colour N02-So shy, which is a beautiful light pink. It has a good pigmentation. I also grabbed a sample of the Laguna bronzer from NARS. Its a nice bronzer for daytime!
My eyes make bling bling! I bought the Too Faced Better than sex mascara, which has a lovely packaging! I haven’t used it yet to be honest, but I think I am going to like it.
5. Face masks
These masks are from the Sephora brand. The first one is a cleansing pore strip for my nose and the second one is an avocado sleeping mask. I am looking forward to trying these!
After I bought all this goodies, I also got two samples from Sephora for free. One is a loose powder from Make up forever (I haven’t tried it yet) and the other one are four mini lip glosses. These lip glosses are very pigmented and they feel nice on the lips.
All in all it was a nice shopping trip. I also wanted to buy more things from Too Faced, but they didn’t sell many products of this brand, unfortunately.
Still, I hope that some day there will be a Sephora store in Austria, because this would be just amazing (only my bank account wouldn’t be so happy about it).
What would you recommend buying at Sephora?
