Barcelona Sephora Haul: Makeup Forever & Urban Decay

Hello My Lovelies,

I have literally had such a busy day today, I got up at 6.00am and have only just stopped to take a breath, sit down and do some blogging. Another Haul type post for you all, i've been doing quite a lot of these lately, to gradually show you all the lovely bits i picked up on my travels recently, you know the dealio :D

So, last year i discovered that there was a Sephora in Barcelona, and for the past two years i always make sure that we go and have a browse around because we unfortunately don't have a Sephora here in the UK (which i think is absolutely ridiculous, and i think we should start a petition of some kind haha ;) two items was re-purchases from last year and the others we more impulse purchase which i am extremely pleased about :D

So as you can see i purchased the very famous 'Naked 2 Palette' by Urban Decay, i have yet to actually use it but i absoltely adore the first palette so i'm sure i'll love this one just as much. I might do a comparison post for you all but their are tones over the internet, however, i might give it a whirl :D. I also purchased 2 'Makeup Forever' Face & Body Liquid Makeup, 'Makeup Forever' HD Primer & a 'Makeup Forever' Lipstick. 

This 'Makeup Forever' Liquid Makeup was a re-purchase from last year, it is the most amazing foundation you will ever come across, thats why i stocked up and purchased 2 more bottles :P It can be applied lightly but it also has build-able coverage. If i use it for daily purposes i usually only need the one pump as less is more, it looks very natural as you can still see your skin through. Last year when the 'Makeup Forever' assistant was giving me a makeover in store, she said she loved this foundation on me because my tan still showed through and you could also see my freckles from the sun haha, however, if i'm going out i usually apply two layers for a more flawless finish which will last all night. I am shade #34.

This was the primer the sales assistant used on my last year also, she matched it up for my skin. It is a white/blue shade which helps eliminate redness on my particular skin tone. Yet again i usually use this for more if i'm going out or have a long day a head of me or if i'm having a bad skin day, simply apply a 1/4 pump of this to your finger tips and dab where needed and use remainder to blend and your sorted :) A little of this goes a long way, so i only purchased the 1 bottle. I still have just over half of my other one left, when i run out it'll give me the excuse to jet off back to Spain :L

This lipstick was more of an impulse buy like i stated above, it's not a shade i previously had in my collection, however, the assistant helping us this year had it on and it looked stunning on. It does look rather shocking in the tube, however, on it is more of a natural/coral shade which is stunning with a tan.  I can't wait to actually use it properly. Their were two versions of this lipstick, i chose the more creamy and moisturising version as i love creamy lipsticks. My favorites from MAC are their Cremesheen lipsticks :D  

Hope you enjoyed this little post! Comment below if you agree we need a Sephora in the UK :) please do not hesitate to contact me or comment below if you have any questions or requests :)
