Sephora New York Haul


Every time I visit Sephora, I always find myself looking for new products. I planned to pick up the new Elizabeth and James perfumes while visiting New York, the I saw the Elizabeth and James Amethyst was in the Sephora Favourites perfume sampler and seemed a good deal. I do like buying the large size perfume bottle, however it's the medium size bottle you get when you exchange your certificate but I saw it as a chance to get mini's.   

Products : 

Sephora Favourites Perfume Sampler
Sephora Favourites Give Me Some Nude Lip
Milk Makeup Highlighter Kit 
Bite Lip Set 
Sephora Travel Bag
Clinique High Impact Lash Elevating Mascara Mini
Tarts Drink Of H20 Mini
Elizabeth and James French Grey 
Elizabeth and James Amethyst

Sephora Paris Haul


Ever since I heard Sephora is in Paris, I've always wanted to see how different the Sephora France is to the American Sephora. I found a cheap flight to Paris, so I took advantage of it and headed to Paris for the day. 

Sephora was the first shop I stopped at in Paris, so I was excited to see how different it was to visiting the American stores. Staff were coming up to me speaking French. I said sorry I don't speak French and carried on looking around the store. There was the usual Sephora branded makeup and skincare, some brands the same as in America and French brands. I was in a rush and limited to liquids I could take on the plane back home, so I ended up grabbing the Sephora favourites - Girly look selection, a couple of the Sephora lip stories lipsticks and a Too Faced palette. I headed to the till and the woman started speaking French. I knew I was going to have a problem, as I wanted to get one of the Sephora France loyalty cards to show I've been to a Sephora France. I spotted a photo of the Sephora loyalty card on the checkout desk, so I pointed and she spoke in French. I said English ? I read on the Sephora website, different countries have a different loyalty card because different currencies and exchange rates and anyone can have the ad even if you don't live in the country. I then showed her my Sephora beauty insider card I got from Sephora in America. The woman just kept replying "French no no". I have no idea if she was saying she only speaks French or she was telling me you have to live in France for the card. I gave up realising with the language barrier, I was getting no where.

Products I bought :

Sephora Favourites Girly Look Collection
Too Faced Chocolate Chip Eyeshadow Palette 
Becca Glow On The Go Highlighter Set 
Sephora Lip Stories Lipsticks: City Beat and Golden Gate

I did however notice when I got home, the Sephora Favorutes Girly looks set was reduced from €29.90 down to €17.90 and it's went through full price on the receipt. I checked the Sephora France website and it's showing at €17.90 online aswell. I looked on twitter and Sephora seem to direct everyone who bought from Sephora France to the French website, however it's all in French. I filled out the contact form nearly a month ago and no reply.
