I like to spend my evenings unwinding by browsing on Instagram or watching YouTube videos on the latest makeup trends and products. As I said on my Facebook page earlier, it aches my heart watching YouTubers rave on about products I cannot purchase locally 💔 but I am lucky in a sense that my baby sis Laura lives right next to Sephora in Spain, so if I see a product I need or want, Laura goes on the hunt 😂
I really wanted Kat Von D’s shade and light contour palette and eyeshadow palette, I also saw a Youtuber use a Kiko lip liner in 504 (Laura also lives very close to Kiko) so I WhatsApped her earlier this week and asked her if she could take a look for me when she had the chance.
Last year I did an interview for a local paper about a makeup challenge I was doing on my makeup page while raising money for a cancer research charity, during the interview I spoke about Laura and how if I couldn’t find a lipstick shade or a product I just had to have, poor Laura would go on a mission to find it for me and I was asked “so your poor sister is your makeup mule?” I laughed and replied “yes basically” since then my unfortunate little sister has been nicknamed ‘my makeup mule’ 😅
So I woke up this morning pretty late (I like to have a lie in on a Saturday 😜) and I had text messages from Laura asking me to get in touch with her, so I rang, we had our little chat and catch up on life, then she went on the search for the goodies. She told me when she went into Sephora the sales assistant politely asked her in Spanish “what is she looking for now?” When Laura told me this, I laughed so hard. Laura showed the sales assistant the pictures I had sent her and the sales assistant showed her the products and held them up so that Laura could take pictures to send onto me.
I told Laura which one to get and with that off she went to the till to make the purchase. I just wanna say respect and thanks to that lovely sales assistant ✌
Once Laura was done in Sephora off she went on her merry way to Kiko to pick up the lip liner I wanted. Once she was finished her shopping spree she came home and took some pictures to show me

When sharing the pictures she captioned them “the makeup mule strikes again” 😂
I am very blessed and grateful to have an amazing family. They support, love and encourage me on everything I do. I am very close to my siblings, they’re my best friends and how many sisters out there would spend their Saturday afternoon searching and hunting down makeup products?? Laura is home in June so I will wait until then to get the purchases she made today, I’d rather wait than them arriving by mail broken. In the meantime I am sure I will have her out looking for other products so when she comes home I will have a big Sephora and Kiko makeup haul. We joked on the phone saying I won’t even hug her like I usually do when she comes home, instead I will be like…. “welcome back, now where is my makeup?” 😂
Big shout out and love to my makeup mule Laura. Love you Xxx
Peace and love.. K 💛 Xx
