During the past year, Sam has slowly been converting Ilaria into a cosmetics demon, one eye mask at a time… and while Ilaria never really needs that much extra convincing, Sam did drag Ilaria into at least five different Sephora stores during our trip to Paris and Madrid earlier this year. We might have also missed our walking tour of Madrid due to a Sephora stock-up (oops!) but once you have come across these stores you might understand why we are so enamored!

Sephora stocks the largest range of beauty products that you can possibly imagine: skincare, make-up, fragrances, haircare and everything in between – from high-end make-up like NARS through to their own affordable private label. Sephora’s consultants are always on hand (in that non-irritating kind-of-way) to help in selecting the perfect fragrance or shade and you can get your make-up touched up in store! And while the beauty ranges available at home continue to grow, there are some things the Europeans just do better and that is Sephora.


In other words – We absolutely bloody love this store and since we are both off on a European Summer holiday this month, we have decided to spoil one of our beloved readers with a giveaway from one of our favourite places 🙂

Each item in the prized package has been tested buy at least one of us, if not both, meaning you are really getting a hand-picked gift of love from the Spruce Girls! This is what is included:

1. The original Beauty Blender – this tiny little sponge has taken the make-up world by storm since its launch thanks to its ability to get into every surface of the face. This is the ultimate companion to any makeup drawer!

2. Sephora Collection Velvet eye-shadow – as featured in June Favourite Five; simply the best waterproof, smudge-proof eye-shadow we have yet to try and the perfect base for creating simple daytime looks through to smoky evening eyes.

3. Sephora Collection Eye Mask – a hot favourite here at Spruce HQ! These small under-eye patches are a miracle in treating the tired, sensitive skin under the eyes. Trust us – we schlepped more than a handful back for good reason!

4. Sephora Collection Colour Reveal Lip Balm – a unique lip balm which adjusts to one’s unique pH levels creating the perfect, pink shade for any skin tone!

All you need to do to enter this fab giveaway is: –

– subscribe to the blog (if you have not done so already)

– like us on Facebook

– share this giveaway on Facebook.

The winner will be picked at random and announced on the blog on Friday 28 August.

*please note while we endeavor to provide exactly what we have promised, variations may occur and we reserve the right to substitute any of the above.
