There’s no better feeling than buying new cosmetics for yourself and using them for the first time! As I mentioned in my previous post, I recently went to Sephora in Strasbourg and purchased a couple of items that I am loving at the moment.
- Two gorgeous lipsticks from the Sephora Collection Rouge Matte.
- A 50ml bottle of Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse
- Sephora Express cleansing & Purifying facial wipes.
Sephora Rouge Matte Lipsticks
I became obsessed with the Sephora Matte lipsticks collection when I was visiting New York back in November of last year, so when I was in Strasbourg I had to buy more colours as they are REALLY good. This time I purchased the colours M04 F.A.B.U.L.O.U.S and the M11 Rebel Chic. Both colours are absolutely GORGEOUS and perfect for a night out!
What I really like about these lipsticks, besides their reasonable price of 10,95€, is that my lips don’t get dry and the colour last almost all day. These lipsticks are creamy and moist my lips, nothing compared to other matte lipsticks I’ve had in the past.
Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse
For a very long time I’ve been trying to buy this little bottle of pure goodness called NUXE. I’ve heard and read so many good things about it. So when I saw they had the 50 ml bottle in Sephora I simply HAD to get it. It has the perfect size to bring it with me when traveling.
I have added NUXE to my morning routine by applying a few drops on my fingertips, spreading it all over my face/neck and letting it absorb for 1 minute at least; then I apply my daily moisturiser and, let me tell you, the results are SO GOOD! My skin has recovered so much its glow and it doesn’t feel oily at all. Even if the weather is dreadful, my skin is not showing flaky signs like it used to. Thumbs up, definitely!
Sephora Express cleansing & Purifying facial wipes
Normally I’m not a big fan of facial cleansing wipes because I think they can hurt your skin when you rub on. However the reason why I purchased these wipes is because they are so handy to bring anywhere and easy to use when going to the gym after work.
Nevertheless, before purchasing products like this, please make sure you read and search the ingredients (I didn’t unfortunately) . This wipes contain Salicylic Acid which purifies and acts as an astringent for gentle exfoliation and is also good to treat acne or the occasional blemish. But if you don’t have any of these issues, do not get products containing this ingredient as it can have a burning effect on your skin and dry it. You are better off getting something milder such as Garnier Micellar Extra-Gentle Cleansing wipes. Trust me! 🙂
