New York Make Up Haul – Win Some Goodies and a Mophie!

So a trip to America is never complete without a run around every drug store and Sephora you can find to grab all the good stuff we don’t really get in the UK.

I didn’t go crazy this time – I had to be very restrained. But I did manage to pick up some cool bits from Sephora and Duane Reade (which is like the New York version of Walgreens)



First on my list were these eye and sleeping masks. Sephora markets the eye masks being infused with different active ingredients to help relax the delicate skin around the eyes and to ultimately achieve a revitalised look. They are made so they hug the coutours under the eye for maximum penetration!

The sleeping masks were something completely new to me,  they are in a pot as a sort of gel type cream, and you put them on your skin, sleep in them and then give your face a wash in the morning! I picked up 4 different ones with reviews to come soon!

Rose Mask:  This mask plumps your skin and adds radiance for hydrated, more luminous skin.

Honey Mask: This nourishes and relieves dry skin instantly for soft skin.

Pearl Mask: Evens and helps minimise skintone irregularities so it looks fresh and bright.

Lotus Mask: This locks in water and reduces signs of tiredness by making your skin look plumper.


Whilst in Sephora I also grabbed this Becca “ever-matte” primer which is meant to be good for oily skin, and the Clinique “just browsing” eyebrow mousse (I am trying to grow my eyebrows and need all the help I can get)




In Duane Reade I picked up 2 items from Elf. One being a daily brush cleaner that I can use to keep my brushes fresh between washes and the second being a matte lip crayon in the shade “rich red” – I must say I really like this and it isn’t drying at all! I think both of these items cost me about $7

Finally to end the post I thought it would be nice to give away some items from the Sephora mask range and a Yext branded Mophie Juice Pack Powerstation Mini for the next time you go on holiday and you need a useful bit of charge for using your gadgets on the go! You can enter below!
