While in New York, I stopped by Sephora to pick up a few items; to be honest I didn’t really pick up much as a lot of their self-branded products didn’t really appeal to me, but a couple stood out which I will talk about a bit here.

Aren’t these blushes lovely? I’m not normally partial to a dusty pink but the blush on the left gives a gorgeous matte glow that is not too pigmented. In the photo above, I have swatched it a few times for it to show up. Lack of pigmentation is not a problem for me with this blush as you can build it up very easily .
The blush on the right is more of a nude-pink colour with tiny specks of gold which gives the colour a bit of a highlight. Both blushes are matte, but don’t fall on the side of being chalky which is awesomesauce.

These lipglosses came in at around $4 dollars each which isn’t that bad, considering the quality. Both glosses have a shimmer base and remind me of those £1 roll on lip glosses that we used to get from the corner shop when we were 13. Remember?! Sad times. O_o
Although it feels light on the lips, the staying power is pretty strong. I’m normally not a fan of loads of shimmer, but thankfully I can manage to pull this off. I had hoped that the purple gloss would have been more pigmented, but alas, I’ll take what I can get!

I love the red lip gloss – it reminds me of Dorothy’s ruby red slippers for some reason. I can see myself layering this on top of Ruby Woo. Pretty! The glosses come with a “8” shaped doe-foot applicator which makes the application easy and precise (for me anyway…I detest brush applicators!).

Have you guys tried anything from Sephora?

    From the Sephora brand I've tried several eyeshadows, concealer, lip gloss, and blush. I've found the quality to be either meh average or only a little better than drugstore. Since their prices are so close to some of the other brands they carry at Sephora, I now rather pay a bit more for Urban Decay, Kay Von D, Illamasqua, Too Faced, etc.
    Although their new reformulated single eyeshadows are pretty impressive! xx

    Oh forgot to say, their brush line is amazing though!
