Birthday Haul

Birthday HaulBirthday HaulSo you guys know I love a good haul. Well I certainly went a little crazy for my birthday, I know but most of these were bargains – so that’s okay right? I think every girl likes to treat herself with their birthday money, so this is what I picked up in Newcastle and recent orders from Feel Unique and Superdrug.

For body, I absolutely LOVE the Body Shop‘s new virgin Mojito collection, and I can’t stop using their sorbet since I purchased it. I got £5 off with it being my birthday and I swear this is a little beauty! It even soothes after sun too as well as leaving your skin smelling delicious. I also had a gander in the Lush store and picked up the Godmother soap and another tub of the Rub Rub Rub scrub. I was after trying soap from lush, and the Godmother smells exactly like Snow Fairy so I cannot wait to try it!

After asking on the #bbloggers chat what sea spray to take on holiday, my fellow beauty bloggers recommended I get Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray! So I picked it up in my Feel Unique order, I haven’t used it yet, but from what I’ve heard it will give all the care and style I need whilst on holiday next month! I also bought my first ever Tangle Teezer brush. So glad I’ve finally got my hands on one, it’s taking a bit of getting used to but I think I will prefer it than an ordinary brush.

For face I picked up two BB creams for holiday, I know I couldn’t resist! The Urban Decay‘s Naked Skin Bronzing balm is a medium light coverage foundation with spf 20 that perfects your skin. L’Oreal Nude Maguique cream is very similar too in its qualities! This applies as a light cream but once blended it becomes a light/medium foundation – almost fitting your own skintone.

I went a little crazy on the blushers and bronzers! After finishing my first palette, I picked up another Urban Decay Naked Flushed in ‘Strip’. I absolutely love this little contour palette, the highlighter is amazing! Makeup Revolution blushes are incredible for the price. I picked up a mini one in ‘treat’ and their I Heart Makeup Blushing Hearts in ‘Peachy pink kisses’. This is a stunning light pink blush that personally I think I’ll use more like a highlighter! Their vivid baked blushes are also that perfect little blush to keep in your bag, I picked up ‘All I think about is you’ which is a dreamy baby pink! And finally for bronzer, I picked up Superdrug’s own brand Solait Maxi Bronzer. This has golden orange and dark beige tones to it; it’s quite dark so only a tiny little is needed for your face and body for that summer glow.

For eyes I finally picked up Benefit‘s new They’re Real Push Up Liner in ‘Beyond Brown’. It took my forever to decide on the colour but I went for brown as it flattered my eye colour. I really did have my eyes on the purple so I think I may have to get that next (If you pick one up now, you get a free mini They’re Real remover)! I couldn’t resist going to the MAC Cosmetics counter. Their Le Disko collection came out on my birthday so I picked up a stunning pink eyeshadow with blue sparkles – ‘Boom Boom Room’. I found two Barry M eyeshadow palettes in Tkmaxx so I had to get them. The Summer Love palette contains light sparkly shadows with a creamy highlighter. Starry Eyed palette contains darker shimmer shadows with a golden blush! You can never have enough brow kits can you? L’Oreal Brow Artist kit is so small and cute with tweezers, applicator and spooley brush as well as a gel and powder – this could be my new fave!

And finally, I’m actually shocked I only picked up one lip product, but the I Heart Makeup by Makeup Revolution Lip Lava in ‘Unleash’ is a stunning coral pink! This is my first lip lava and I can tell I’m going to love it already. It’s a lot less liquid-y than I thought it was going to be. It’s true it is a liquid lipstick than a lip gloss. Perfect.

What do you think of my birthday haul?
