My boyfriend and I decided to book tickets for a holiday – very last minute, but also very overdue! I will be going at the end of this week and will be visiting Paris for a week and Barcelona for a week and a half – I have been to Paris a few times, but never feel like I’ve had enough time to explore. Barcelona is a city I have never been to, but heard such great things about, so very excited to explore it (and overload on tapas!) Obviously with holiday planning comes many shopping lists and wishlists – I have already Google-mapped every Sephora store in both cities, although I have vowed I won’t spend all my money on cosmetics (like I usually do). Below are a few items that I plan on picking up. Please let me know if you have any must-see places in either of these cities!
From top left: 1) Becca Champagne Pop highlighter – this is the famous highlighter by Jaclyn Hill (beauty YouTuber – see her channel here). This is said to be the so finely milled and super ‘highlightery’! 2) Nars Sheer Glow Foundation – I’ve heard way too many good things about this for way too long now. I definitely have to own it. 3) Sephora Lip Stains – also heard these are full of pigment and that the range has the most beautiful red. Definitely picking one up. 4) Estée Lauder Restless lipstick by Kendall Jenner (buy it online here) – apparently this is the perfect cool toned red with a teensy touch of coral. 5) Urban Decay Naked Concealer – apparently this gives NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer a run for its money. Plus its cheaper. Sold! 5) Living Proof 5-in-1 Styling Treatment – Anna from Vivianna Does Make Up spoke about this and I’ve also heard plenty of others raving about it. 6) Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Gel – Oh, but I love a good tinted moisturiser and when it has the word ‘rescue’ and ‘gel’ in it then it’s already mine. 7) Lorac Unzipped Palette – as a very non-eyeshadowey person, this palette looks like a good option for me, lots of mattes and neutrals.
