Marbella Sephora Haul

Marbella Holiday Spain Palm Tree Sea View Beach

Marbella Spain La Canada Sephora Haul

While Rob and I were on holiday to Marbella, how could I not pop into the local Sephora and pick up a few beauty bits and pieces?!  I stuck mainly to Sephora own brand, because it's so much harder to get hold of in the UK, unless you don't mind a hefty shipping charge, but I got some make up that I haven't stopped using since!

Marbella Spain Sephora Haul Waterproof Contour Eye Pencil Brown Shimmer

I'd read some pretty impressive reviews of the Sephora Waterproof Contour Eye Pencils, so I grabbed the shade Cocoa.  It's a gorgeous chocolate brown with gold shimmer running through it. It applies smoothly and beautifully and if you work quickly it can be blended out to a smudgey smoke, however doesn't smudge too easily once it's applied and stays in place pretty well, especially when paired with a primer.  I adore this pencil, and wish I'd picked up a few more shades.

I already have a Sephora Cream Lip Stain in Red, and I was looking forward to grabbing a different shade.  I went for this natural pink with a hint of shimmer running through it.  It's the same gorgeous formula - matte, smudge-proof and long lasting.  Perfect for day-to-day wear.

Marbella Spain Sephora Haul Make Up Forever Mini Miniature High Definition HD Transluscent Powder

Marbella Spain Sephora Haul Make Up For Ever HD High Definition Loose Powder

Possibly my favourite of the bunch - this miniature Make Up Forever Loose HD Powder was right next to the till and I couldn't help picking it up.  I've wanted to try it for a while, and I'm loving it so far.  It's a bit messy, as expected from a loose powder, but once applied it's pretty much undetectable and even though it's powder, it leaves my skin still looking like skin.

I am loving these Sephora polishes lately - I have quite a few shades now, and they're brilliant! They brush is wide, they're opaque in one coat (although I apply two out of habit) and they're pretty long lasting.  They're reasonably priced and there's a huge range of shades to choose from.  I picked up these three in Marbella to add to my collection.

Lastly, I'd read about these Sephora Rouge Infusion lip oil/balm/stain hybrids online, but wasn't too sure whether they were worth a shot or not.  I found this mini tube by the till and I'm so glad I dropped it into my basket, it's a gorgeous neutral pink shade which is so comfortable to wear on the lips.  The formula is unlike anything else I've tried before - it feels like a mixture between a liquid lipstick, a lip oil and a balm.  It's comfortable on the lips, but you definitely know its there, although that doesn't bother me.  Its got a fruity scent but it fades pretty quickly, and there is a reasonable amount of pigmentation but it's not opaque.  I'm really enjoying reaching for this on a day-to-day basis.

I am loving the Sephora own-brand beauty lately, what is on your Sephora wishlist?
