Barcelona Haul | Sephora

I'm not the kind of person who spends most of their holiday shopping, but I spent a few days in Barcelona and ended up grabbing a few treats. Here's my mini haul. 

I started off in Sephora. We don't have one in the UK, so obviously I had to check it out. The Sephora in Barcelona is not as amazing as the ones in the US.
Unfortunately they don't have brands like Tarte, Bite Beauty, Josie Maran and Anastasia Beverlly Hills, which are ones I would really like to try. But I was still excited to go there and get my hands on a couple of items from Sephora's own brand. I picked up the Sephora Pro Airbrush #55 and the Sephora Cream Lip Stain, in the colour 05 Infinite Rose. Both have been so raved about by YouTubers, I felt like I had to give them a try. The brush #55 is excellent for buffing liquid foundation. I'm really enjoying it so far. The lip stain is quite unique as well. The shade I bought (#05) is a bit shimmery but dries matte and is quite long lasting. I will probably do a separate review on these soon.

I also bought Make Up Forever Aqua Cream in #13, Warm Beige. I love cream eyeshadows and I didn't own anything like this shade. It's a lovely champagne colour. A bit similar to Mac Bare Study but more on the golden side, which I personally prefer. It's gorgeous! Here in the UK we can only get MUFE online so I thought it was a great opportunity to finally try something from the brand.

I then popped quickly into H&M and got this beautiful Maxi Dress (€59.99). It's got a massive split on one leg and a chain collar which I thought added a more elegant look to the outfit. I also bought a little Purse/Clutch (€6.99) to carry mine and my husband's passports, our boarding passes and other documents. Unfortunately I couldn't find either one of those on the H&M UK website. 

Lastly I got a new Roxy Bikini (£35). My current bikini is not looking so good anymore. I saw Quiksilver had a 50% off sale on and I thought 'why not'? Summer is over in the UK but I might be going on another holiday soon, so it will get a lot of use then. :-)
