Birthday Haul


As of late, I’ve been trying my hardest not to spend so much on makeup. Trying to convince myself that less is more. Even though we all know that sometimes it, in fact, is not. My birthday was in February and there is no better excuse to splurge on something I’m trying not to splurge on than my birthday!


For a while, I’ve wanted to try ColourPop Cosmetics but I could never decide on a color. I went out on a limb and ordered Beeper and Platform from their Ulta Matte Lip line. And I’m obsessed!! I like to mix the two to get a perfect nude.


This sampler by Sephora is great. I’ve been obsessing over finding the right nude colors and this gives you five different products to try. Although they come in travel sizes, I think it’s amazing. It’s great to have smaller sizes for when you’re traveling. And I can never go through a regular size of lip product anyways. With this set, you get products from Tarte, Nudestix, Laura Mercier, Nars, and Marc Jacobs.


I swear by Kat Von D’s lip products. The formula is amazing. It’s something I could wear daily without it drying out my lips. I got the Everlasting Liquid Lipstick and the Studded Kiss Lipstick both in the color Lolita.


This Marc Jacobs set was a free birthday gift from Sephora. So far, I am loving the Highliner Gel Eye Crayon.


This Real Techniques Bold Metals brush is gorgeous! It adds to my love for gold! This is the 301 Flat Contour and it goes perfect with the Bahama Mama by the Balm.


I received this highlighter as a gift from Ron. Before this, I was using liquid highlighter but this may have just converted me over to powder. You could wear it alone for the perfect dewy skin or pair it with bronzer for a more defined and contoured look.

I’ve been having so much fun beating my face with these products. It’s been a while since I’ve splurged on makeup like this. But I think I got enough to hold me off for a while. Or maybe till the next occasion I use as an excuse to shop! Lol.
