Beauty Birthday Pressies!

I took my birthday list this year as an opportunity to get my hands on some beauty products that I can’t afford and have been drooling about for ages.  I also went shopping on my birthday day and so I picked up a few of these bits whilst browsing with my Mumma (the Sleek & Topshop bits)!

Urban Decay Naked Palette
Estee Lauder Double Wear Zero Smudge Mascara
Topshop Lip Liner in Fearless
Topshop Blusher in Head Over Heels
Topshop Eye Crayon in Equinox (I’m so scared of my current one running out so I asked for another).
Kajal Eyeliner
Sleek Pout Polish in Peach Perfection and Bare Minimum
Urban Decay Primer Potion (not pictured)
Kevin Murphy Born Again Shampoo & Masque (not pictured)
Braun Silk-epil 7 Epilator (pictured below)

I also got lots of sweeties and an epilator!  I have wanted an epilator for a long time now but they were always too expensive for my student budget.  I am so so so happy I now have one in my possession and I can’t wait to start seeing the effects (I have already used it twice and it is so damn painful I could scream, but I’ll save my whinging for a detailed review on it in a few weeks).

I also put the Kevin Murphy Born Again Shampoo and Masque on my birthday list – these two products have made my hair so soft and manageable just as my hair was beginning to break and look really dry.  I will write up a proper review of these miracle products soon also.

As well as these fab beauty gifts I also got a few tickets for gigs and plays in London; The Pierces play Shepards Bush, Iwan Rheon (Simon from the Misfits) playing his beautiful music next week and Robert Sheehan (Nathan from the Misfits) in the play ‘Playboys of the Western World’ at The Old Vic … (can you tell I’m obsessed with Misfits? ha!).

What are you putting on your birthday list this year?

  6. No way, so jealous that you have UD's Naked palette! I'm itching to get my hands on it but can't justify the price tag when I already have a million neutral eyeshadows already. I know I'm gonna crack soon and just buy it though - Pleeeeeeease review it sometime, I never tire of Naked reviews! (That sounds SO seedy!!)

    I never get any beauty-related presents, apparently I have too much stuff already (as if!). The Naked palette is great, btw, I bought one for myself. :)
