US Sephora haul

US Sephora make up haul

Today's post is a quick look at a US Sephora haul that arrived last week.  For Dubai peeps, US Sephora does not ship here, nor will it ship to a US Aramex Shop and Ship account as it detects that the address is a freight forwarding address-however, I have found a loophole.  I ship my order to my UK Shop and Ship address and it goes through fine.  However, as UK peeps may know, Sephora will not ship all brands to the UK-particularly those that can be bought in the UK.

Today's post is a 'show and tell', please leave me a comment and let me know what you would like to see swatched and reviewed first and I will get right on it.

Just looking at some of these things I am in love-I really hope when I use them I love them even more!

First out the box, I bought the Tarte Rainforest of the Sea concealer after seeing numerous raves about it.  I also blind bought the Sephora 10hr wear perfection foundation-I haven't read anything about this and I guessed my shade so fingers crossed!!

I bought four more of the Huda Beauty lip contour pencils-these are completely sold out in Dubai, but having tried Icon and liked it, when they went live on Sephora I grabbed four more. 

I bought two liquid lip products-the Tarteist Glossy Lip Paint in Goals, a peachy nude and the Kat Von D Transformer Liquid Lipstick.  This is an iridescent pink pearl that can be used alone or as a top coat to add extra dimension to your lipstick.

I was dying to try some of the newly launched Estee Edit products and chose three-the first of which is the Edgiest Kohl Shadowstick in Frost Bite-I am hoping this pulls more green than silver as greys on my eyes don't look good.

The Bronzer from the Estee Edit though is utterly beautiful and I can't wait to use it.  It's a huge slim disk and the packaging is just sublime.  I really hope it's amazing!!

Finally, from the Estee Edit range I picked up the Flash Photo Powder.  This is a pressed powder with a distinct blue tint and I have not seen anything like this before.  This powder claims to absorb oil and to brighten the skin-making you always camera ready.  Again the packaging is stunning.

I'm literally so excited about these two mini Viseart palettes-they both look stunning.  Minx is on the left and Cashmere is on the right and they just look so beautiful.  2016 is the year I have actually started liking matte eyeshadows and have really gotten into warmer toned eyeshadows so I have such high hopes for these-but they have a price tag that means they need to be pretty good.

I picked up the Sephora Pro Full Coverage Airbrush #53 because I saw it on Laura's blog and it looked like a very good idea! It's a short handled, fan shaped dense brush and I hope it offers the full coverage it promises.

I picked up some pigments from Ardency Inn because I remember Sarah telling me they were really good-left to right is Sunday, Vintage Gold (which sadly didn't survive the journey), Copper and Heaven.  This is a totally new brand to me but Sarah's recommendations are usually pretty good.  I also bought the Kat Von D Metal Crush eyeshadow in Synergy-although these are in Dubai, this shade isn't and it looks perfect!

Finally I picked up one of the new Amuse Bouche lipsticks from Bite.  I'm a huge fan of Bite and own a ton of their lipsticks but recently they launched a new range, discontinuing the majority of the formulas I own.  I wanted to try one so went for a bold red-Gazpacho.

So that's the whole haul-are any of these products on your wishlist?  What would you like to see reviewed first?
