SEPHORA - END OF THE WEEK PICKS FEAT. SEPHORA'S NAIL LACQUER + 3D PRECISION SPONGE REVIEW!


HEY BEAUTIES! 

LET'S NOT FORGET IT'S VOGUE FASHION NIGHT TONIGHT IN THE SYDNEY CBD! 

What better excuse to showcase to you with my Sephora End of the Week picks featuring Sephora's Nail lacquer and their 3D Precision Sponge. HANDS UP...whenever you're shopping in Sephora, it's feels like heaven to you? I'd have to raise my hand for this case because my love for Sephora is never ending. The store is filled with many international brands and is packed with many testers where you can feel and try out the product for yourself before you purchase. The shop assistants are definitely super helpful and be sure to expect excellent customer service from Sephora because they're truly there to help you out and answer any questions you may have. 

The best thing for me is that my nearest Sephora is located in Pitt Street, Sydney CBD. It's convenient to check out especially during my lunch breaks. 

I am definitely excited to tell you all about my End of Week picks at Sephora and I hope you enjoy reading! x


FEAT. SEPHORA'S NAIL LACQUER IN 50 MYSTIC GOTHIC 

HOW TO GET THAT PERFECT MYSTIC PURPLE #NOTD!  ENCAPSULATE THAT MYSTICAL MOMENT WITH THIS BEAUTIFUL NAIL SHADE

We have here a nail lacquer with light-reflecting pigments that deliver intense, long-lasting colour. I found this shade to be really bright, beautiful, long-lasting and definitely stunning on my nails. The collection by Sephora has been formulated with a combination of resins and waxes that provides the fast drying quality and the long-lasting shine (i.e. Five days to be exact). You basically get a high coverage within one single stroke. It's definitely a beautiful shade to wear when you're feeling a tad mystical! 

You'll also be pleased to know that it has been formulated without any parabens and the packaging itself is super adorable. It's in an ergonomic style which means it's easier to grip the bottle with just using two fingers for an easier application. 

This nail lacquer comes in a 5ml bottle which is super convenient to have it handy in your travel bag, purse, office desk, wherever you fancy! Overall, the mystic gothic shade is a lovely dark purple which is fabulous to wear. It's also Made in France in case you were wondering.

PUTTING IT TO THE TEST

FEAT. SEPHORA'S 3D PRECISION SPONGE

PRESENTING TO YOU WITH SEPHORA'S 3D PRECISION SPONGE
GET A FLAWLESS PROFESSIONAL FINISH TO YOUR MAKE-UP

Firstly it's a 3-Dimensional sponge which actually gives you a professional finish to your foundation, concealer and overall look. It's most definitely useful for applying on concealers, liquid, compact foundations and cream blushes. The overall result? You get a really nice perfectly controlled finish to your overall make-up look. 

For the shape and texture of the sponge, I felt that it was quite dense and not bouncy at all. It has a tip on one end where this actually helps you to reach the tricky spots and angles. The sponge being reviewed is in the colour pink which is my favourite colour. There are other colours you can look to get so be sure to check out in-stores or online. 

When using the sponge, it's as simple as dampening the sponge. There's no need for instructions here because it's really basic to use - especially for newbies out there. The sponge does not expand but instead it stays the same size. It's a cute sized sponge where it's very easy to squeeze out any excess water out of it. When applying the sponge onto my face, it didn't have that bouncy feeling but this is fine because I liked how it held its shape after dampening it with water. 

Now for when it came to cleaning the sponge, hands down... it was the easiest process ever done for cleaning a sponge. I guess this is due to its texture and that it actually allows you to squeeze out all of the water from it effectively. I found there to be less residue on the sponge after cleaning which was a positive aspect to consider to the this 3D Precision sponge by Sephora. 

For the finish, the sponge really gave my overall make-up look a beautiful and flawless airbrushed look which I was definitely loving. The blending of the sponge was really quick and easy to do and I was really satisified with my overall experiences of using this 3D Precision sponge. It's also latex-free, antibacterial and also hypoallergenic. 

WHERE TO PURCHASE:
