A few weeks ago I went on a city trip to the beautiful city Milan and of course I did a lot of shopping while I was there. There’s a really big Sephora store in Milan with all of the amazing brands that I unfortunately can not get in the Netherlands. I’m always super excited to go to the Sephora stores whenever I’m on holiday and I always leave the store with some products. I typically buy quite a few products because they are all things that I can not get my hands on so easily, and in this post I will share with you the four products I got when I was in Milan.

I mainly got makeup products from ‘Makeup Forever’ because I didn’t own any of their products before and really wanted to try them out. I purchased three products that will be perfect for creating a flawless base. First of all, I decided to get the Ultra HD foundation as I’ve heard so many great things about it and have seen a lot of people using and liking it. So far, I’ve been quite impressed by it! The color is really nice and suits my skin perfectly, it’s really easy to blend and stays on the whole day.

I also decided to get the HD loose powder to go along with the foundation to create that flawless base. This is a really good powder in my opinion – I have oily skin so I need a good powder – as it keeps my skin matte all day. I also love it because it’s translucent which makes it a lot easier to apply as it will look quite natural. The last thing I got from ‘Makeup Forever’ is the Mist & Fix spray. To be honest, I never used a makeup fixing spray before because I felt like it didn’t really do anything. However, I do really like this one. I feel like it makes my makeup look more natural and it also lasts a lot longer.

Last but not least I got this set of two little Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencils. The dark burgundy color is in the shade ‘cruella’ and the lighter one is called ‘dolce vita’. I’m absolutely in love with these lip pencils! The colors are so beautiful and the staying power is amazing. I was wearing the darker color almost every night in Milan when we would go out for dinner, and even after eating pizza and pasta it still looked absolutely fine.

A little tip for when going to the Sephora is to have a look at the section where they have all the mini’s. This is where I found most of the products I bought, except from the foundation. These mini’s are a lot cheaper and just a bit smaller which is no problem for me because I almost never completely use up makeup products. So this is a great way to get some makeup from high-end brands for a bit cheaper!
