Birthday Beauty Haul - Lipsticks and Palettes

Wednesday, 4 May 2016

Some of you may have noticed that it was my birthday last Monday and I turned 22, I feel so old, haha! I received a mixture of money and presents from both my family and friends which I was extremely grateful for and did not expect. This is going to be quite a large haul so i've split it into two separate posts. I'll start off with lipsticks as I picked up quite a few from different brands.

The first lipstick I picked up was a Tom Ford lipstick in the shade 'Casablanca' now I know some of you may be thinking "are you nuts?' because these lipsticks are very pricey BUT this is a lipstick that I have wanted for a while so I thought 'why not?!'. This shade is so beautiful and has a mixture of both plum and pink tones running through it which makes it the perfect nude shade for me. Also, how luxurious is the packaging?! The next lipstick I received as a present from my boyfriend, this lipstick is the YSL Rouge Volupte Shine in the shade '44'. This lipstick was on my wishlist as I had heard Victoria from 'inthefrow' rave about it in one of her recent videos so obviously I knew I needed it as I really do trust her judgement as she always looks incredible. This is such a lovely everyday shade as it's a nude pink which really suits my skin tone as I am quite pale.

The next lipstick I picked up is from Mac and is in the shade 'Chili' this is another lipstick that has been on my wishlist for a while after hearing Vivianna from 'viviannadoesmakeup' talk about it. After seeing this colour on her I fell in love with it. I usually go for a pillar box red shade when choosing red lipsticks, however, this lipstick has a brown undertone to it which makes it different to any other lipstick that I own, it's such a unique colour. The next lipstick is by Urban Decay and is in the shade 'Tilt' this was a gift off my parents. I fell in love with this colour after seeing Perrie Edwards rock the shade in the music video 'Love Me Like You'. I am obsessed with her and her style, she honestly looks amazing in anything, including this lipstick which is definitely going to be my summer 'go to' lipstick. This shade is a coral red which will look amazing in the summer. Finally the last lipstick that I picked up is by Mac in the shade 'Brave' I have been wearing this religiously ever since I bought it, it's the perfect every day nude shade for me.

Moving swiftly on the next few products are beauty palettes which I don't actually own a lot of. I have lots of eyeshadow palettes but have never fancied beauty palettes until recently. The first palette I received as a gift off my sister as she was fed up of hearing me banging on about it. The palette is the 'Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit' I actually picked this up in Ulta when I visited Florida last year and I somehow managed to talk myself out of buying it which I regretted as soon I got home. This palette is honestly amazing and I can see why it is so hyped up. The palette has six shades which can be used as both sculpting and highlighting powders.

The next palette I received as a gift off my boyfriend and this is the 'Benefit Cheekathon Palette'. This is a palette that I had been eyeing up for a while as I had wanted to try a few different Benefit cheek products. This palette contains Hoola, Dallas, Dandelion, Rockateur and Coralista which I think is a great value for money. 

Finally the last palette that I picked up is the 'Chocolate Bar' palette by Too Faced. This smells incredible and contains a mixture of 16 matte and shimmer shades. I love the brand Too Faced and I can already tell that I am going to love this.

Have you picked up any amazing beauty products recently?
