A Shopaholic's Journey #6- Dublin Airport +Sephora

When I was in Dublin Airport heading for Barcelona I had a few things in mind that I wanted to get in Duty Free. I try to make a little list before my holidays as I find the prices are much better there. Dublin Airport have a system, Shop & Collect were you can pick up your purchases when you get pack from holidays. I used this service as with my carry on luggage I didn't have much space.

These are the Duty Free products I purchased....

MAC Studio Careblend/Pressed Powder in Medium
MAC Paint Pot in Rubenesque
MAC Paint Pot in Bare Study

Yves Saint Laurent Travel Selection 'All For Eyes'
Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils
Touche Eclat
Mini Eye Makeup Remover

 At the start of La Rambla in Barcelona I spotted a Sephora. I've never been to one and I have to admit I was blown away by all the makeup. I heard the stores in America are bigger and better so I'll have to visit one the next time I'm there.
Almost all the products I purchased are from Sephora's own brand and one is from Bourjois.

Bourjois Smile Enhancing Gloss in Rose Bright

Sephora Purse Spray in Pineapple Grenadine
Sephora Sun Disk Bronzing Powder in Light
Sephora Lip Atitude Lipstick in Rosy Mad (not pictured)

Sephora MoonshadowTrio in Sunbaked
Sephora 4 Shadows and Liner Palette in Almost Nude
Sephora Long Lasting Eyeshadow in Carine (Hollysayshey on YouTube recommended this eyeshadow to me and I love it.)

On the last day of our trip my boyfriend surprised me with these lovely gifts. I was surprised to see 'The Body Shop' was in Barcelona.

Yves Rocher Yellow Peach Eau De Toilette 
Yves Rocher Vanilla Nourishing Lip Balm
The Body Shop 100% Natural Lip Roll On in Orange

I've never heard of the brand Yves Rocher. I love these two products, the lipbalm is amazing and smells gorgeous.

I haven't used much of these products yet but I'll let you know my thoughts on them soon.

Is there any products you'd like to see a review on??
