Holidays and my Sephora Wishlist


As I mentioned yesterday, me and my friend Wahida are planning some trips to Europe over the summer holidays (big bonus to working in a school!) we are definitely going to go to Paris but we are also considering visiting the other capital cities for short breaks, namely Berlin, Madrid, Lisbon and Rome. Not sure we’re going to be able to afford all of the trips but after researching Portugal I think it sounds like a winner! Portugal holidays don’t have to be all about sun, sea and sand; there’s also the important matter of shopping.

When planning a holiday abroad the first thing that crosses my mind is the opportunity for shopping and in particular whether the country might have a Sephora (yep, call me silly but for beauty junkies Sephora is Mecca). I’m very pleased to announce that Portugal is the proud host to 22 Sephora stores with 10 being near to the capital of Lisbon. Lisbon is also home to some of the biggest shopping malls in Europe so if make-up isn’t your thing you’ll definitely find something to spend your pennies on!

I thought that I’d prepare for my holidays by compiling a little Sephora wishlist:

Sephora Mineral Powder Brush|Mini Benefit They’re Real Mascara|Sephora + Pantone Universe Blusher|Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh Rollerball|Sephora by OPI Nail Polish|Sephora Sculpting Disc|Mini Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray

Have you ever visited Portugal?

Do you prefer sightseeing or shopping when you’re on holiday?

  1. Love it- the make up setter and nail polish look fab xx

  2. I love Sephora, wish we had them here! They're especially great for the rollerball perfumes! My brother got me the they're real benefit mini when he was in the US a few weeks ago, I can't wait to try it out, $10 is much more affordable!
