Hi my loves! I’m currently sitting here at my computer giddy with excitement to give you the news that we finally have Sephora online here in Australia!! We finally have access to so many amazing brands that were previously unattainable here in Australia. I was one of those people who would visit the Sephora US website & just wish that we had all these brands here, so when I heard the news I was literally jumping up and down with excitement haha.
So for those of you who used to shop at Luxola.com.au this website was recently acquired by Sephora & revamped as Sephora.com.au – which I think was a pretty cool thing to do, instead of creating a whole different website it’s pretty cool Sephora decided to just revamp a well known aussie site! When you jump on to the website a lot of you will notice that not all brands in the US Sephora are available just yet, but rest assured more brands will be added to the store in coming months. I know I’m most excited to get my hands on some products from Make Up For Ever, Sephora Collection, Anastasia Beverly Hills & Tarte (hopefully this brand will be added to the store soon!) I was lucky enough to be sent a few awesome products that I’ve never tried before (pictured) and also a couple I have already tried I’ll post reviews down below & let you know how the rest go!
Make Up For Ever Aqua Matic ‘M-11’ & ‘I-90’
These Cream Shadows have such an opaque pigment, the formula is probably the most waterproof I have ever used, it’s fantastic! I swatched these on the back of my hand & ran it under water & it was so incredibly hard to get these off, had to whip out my Coconut oil haha. I personally love using these shadows as bases to my eye looks, they stay put, do not smudge or crease & last a really long time. They don’t come off unless you want them to! – I use any type of oil, usually Coconut Oil to remove these effectively. Definitely a must try if you’re looking for something long wearing, smudge proof, crease proof or waterproof.
Sephora Scented Toffee Spray ‘Chocolate Praline’
This was such an interesting product to me. I love chocolate & I love perfume, so both of these mixed together would make heaven in a bottle, right? It sure is for the avid chocolate lover. It smells like a beautiful blend of milk chocolate & toffee I just want to pour if all over a nice bowl of vanilla ice-cream haha. It is quite a strong scent, which may not appeal to everyone. It’s perfect to lightly spray on your wrists for a sweet scent, but I wouldn’t go too crazy with it, as it is very strong. I love the convenience of the 10ml (0.33fl.oz), its the perfect size to just keep in your handbag, while you’re on the go.
Sephora Glossy Lip Pencil ’50 Glossy Pale Pink’
For my gals & guys that love a glossy lip, this ones for you! This shade is the perfect natural blush shade, suits pretty much everyone. A shade like this is a staple in everyones collection, not too pink or too nude, just perfect. The glossy finish of this lip pencil isn’t too over the top – it’s just the perfect amount of shine. Love being able to have glossy lips without the stickiness of a lipgloss – we all know how annoying it is to have our hair sticking to our lips, a major pet peeve & turn off when wearing lipgloss. It lasts a decent amour of time, a couple of hours, but leaves a really nice colour to your lips when the gloss does fade off. Your lips are also left feeling plump & moisturised, really loved this product.
When you get the opportunity definitely jump online & check out Sephora.com.au – let me know your thoughts! I cant wait to see what other brands get added in coming months!
Love & Light
