Barcelona Haul: Part 1 | Ft. Tom Ford, YSL, Bobbi Brown & More

Hello My Lovelies,

Hope you are all doing well! I am still buzzing from my week away to Barcelona. We had such an amazing time away and i cannot wait to fill you in on all the antics! I did a similar post to this last year so thought i would carry on the tradition and show you all what i picked up on my travels this past week. Like the title says above...this is going to be 'Part 1' of the haul and will cover all of the beauty goodies i picked up. If you follow me on Instagram then you would have seen a sneak peek of a few other goodies which will be gracing my blog within the next week or so...which i am overly super duper excited about haha. I also have another exciting post which will be going live on the 1st July which i am also super excited about to finally share with you keep an eye out for that! 

So whilst away in Barcelona i picked up a few beauty goodies at Heathrow Terminal 5 Duty Free, Sephora, throughout the Barcelona City and then Barcelona Duty Free...a nice little combination there haha. 

Tom Ford | Lip Colour Shine in #1 Chastity

This is the first edition to my Tom Ford Collection...and what a surprise it is a pink lipstick ;) I have been seeing alot of Tom Ford beauty gurus grace the bbloggersphere and Instagram and i have been so tempted ti dive in myself and pick up a few gems. Walking through Heathrow Terminal 5 i instantly caught a glimpse of the Tom Ford counter and i literally squealed. I have already set my heart of a few goodies which i hope to pick up on my travels to Los Angeles in September and after trying this lipstick i seriously cannot wait. The formulation is very much similar to a Chanel Rouge Coco Shine where as they are more sheer and glossy in comparison to an opaque lipstick. It was seriously love at first sight and after swatching it i knew i had to make it mine haha. 

YSL | Rouge Volupte #8 Fetish Pink

I think it's becoming a habit of mine to purchase YSL lipsticks at the Duty Free in Barcelona. I just think YSL as a brand are wonderful and who can resist their eye-catching luxurious packaging...i am a right sucker for pretty packaging. Yet again i picked up another beautiful Pink Lipstick to add to my ever growing collection. When i first saw 'Fetish Pink' it instantly reminded me of a true Barbie Lipstick shade! I cannot wait to use it throughout the summer as it is such a pretty and fun shade.

Too Faced | Sweethearts Perfect Flush Blush

I picked up this little beauty in the Barcelona Sephora and I am seriously loving it. It smells and looks good enough to eat and looks stunning on the cheekbones. It had three shades of beautiful blush merged together in a pretty heart shaped container which almost reminds me of 'Charbonnel Pink Marc de Champagne Truffles' also extremely delicious! First impressions it reminds me of Benefit Sugarbomb box blush so i am super excited to compare the two. 

Bobbi Brown | Travel Exclusive | Wilde Rose Shimmer Brick

I am already a fan of the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Bricks and one i use regularly is in the shade 'nude' and is one of my go to highlighters on a daily basis. I found this little beauty in the airplane duty free magazine...i was instantly drawn to the unique black and gold packaging and the fact it was a travel exclusive. I cannot wait to experiment with this beautiful palette. 

Bioderma | Sensibio H20

Ever since i reviewed my sample of the Bioderma Sensinio H20 (Here) i have been dying to get myself a full sized bottle. We found this 500ml bottle in a local pharmacy in the Barcelona city at such a reasonable price i couldn't walk away. I also love the fact that it comes with an in-built pump system so i can use it just as i want without wasting any solution when pouring onto cotton pads. I havent opened it yet as i want to use a few other things up first, however, i think it might be a re-fillable bottle, so fingers crossed i may be able to fill it up again in the future, if i cannot bare to part with it haha. The handy pump will make makeup removing time so much easier! After doing a little research on this particular bottle i discovered that it is actually 'Limited Edition' and is not being released in the UK till the 28th thank you Barcelona for that. 

Vera Wang | Princess

I think this is a perfume that is know to everyone and i seriously cannot believe it was not part of my collection sooner. I will admit, i got this little beauty because it was on a fabulous offer at the Barcelona Duty Free...after browsing through the perfume section i noticed that perfume has gotten extremely expensive?! Mum actually spotted this out for me and she knew that i had been eyeing it up for a while now so...thanks mummy :D

So that is Part 1 of my Barcelona Haul showing you all the beauty goodies i picked up. I would love to know yours thoughts, if you have tried anything or if you have any recommendations for me!
