The Sephora Wish List

I will soon be flying to the Big Apple and I can't wait to visit Sephora...
It's exactly a month today until I fly to NYC (yay) and I'm currently busy planning my days in the Big Apple. There's so much that I want to see and do: see a Broadway show, eat a yummy gluten-free brunch, go to Grand Central station and pretend to be Serena van der Woodson... Oh and of course, I want to spend way too much money in Sephora...

I guarantee the first items that I put in my Sephora basket will be Nirvana by Elizabeth and James in Black and White. I have waited a very long time to get my hands on these two fragrances and I have to say I'm a little bit excited about the prospect of finally owning these beauties. Nirvana White is a floral scent of peony and musk and Nirvana Black is an intense blend of violet, sandalwood and vanilla. They do sound absolutely lush and you just know they're going to be amazing as Elizabeth and James is Mary-Kate and Ashley's (aka my ultimate style queens) brand and let's be honest, who doesn't want to smell like an Olsen twin?! 

After that, I think I will be literally running to find the absolutely gorgeous limited edition Becca x Jaclyn Hill Shimmering Skin Perfector in Champagne Pop. Champagne Pop (really cute name) is described as a soft white gold with peachy pink undertones. Wow. It even sounds beautiful. So, Twitter basically went into meltdown when the Naked Smoky palette was released in the USA and then sold out online within minutes. The palette still hasn't been released in the UK yet (sad times) but I do think it comes out very soon. Yet, I still think I'll buy it when I'm in New York to avoid the stress of trying to buy it online. Yes, yet another Naked palette that we all can't wait to own. Well, who can blame us? The Naked palettes are just that good.

Most of the items on this wish list are recommendations from my fave beauty bloggers. We are such enablers in the beauty blogging community, aren't we? After watching Fleur de Force's Sephora Haul video with Lily Pebbles, I just had to add the Kate Sommerville Nourish Moisturiser, Too Faced's Hangover Primer, a NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil (I think I want the shade Bolero, which is described as a pink cantaloupe), and the Bite Beauty Matte Crème Lip Crayon in Amaretto to my wish list. I have seen so many beauty bloggers rave about the Bobbi Brown Full Coverage Face Brush and also Sephora brushes are meant to be incredible, so I think I will have to treat myself to the Sephora Classic Mini Multitasker Brush. Mini brushes are not only really cute but they are also really good for travelling or for putting in your handbag. 

The final items on my wish list are items that I like to call: 'Julie-Ann is really late to the party on these ones but I still need them in my life'. These include the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer and the much-coveted Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette and the Ambient Lighting Blush in Dim Infusion. Oh, just look at that marbling effect... We've finally reached the last item, which is the Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment in Nude Tinted. The cult beauty product moisturises and nourishes lip while adding a hint of colour. It also has the added benefit of SPF 15 so it's perfect for summer. 

Do you have any Sephora recommendations?
