Hi everyone!! So last week was my birthday (June 30th), and I got some lovely gifts (and treated myself) and I wanted to share them with you! There are quite a bit of new beauty products out there, and I picked out a few that I have been dying to try!
Disclaimer: I am NOT trying to brag about what I got for my birthday, but simply want to show you some fun new products I picked out!
First off, my mom and dad got me this perfume…‘Beach’ by Bobbi Brown. It seriously smells just like the beach (go figure..). It has a sunscreen smell, but in a nicer way, if that makes any sense. Any time I have worn this, it takes me back to any beach vacation I have ever been on. This is definitely my new favorite summer scent!
My parents also got me a gift card to Sephora, and so did my best friend, so I had two to spend! This is what I got at Sephora:
Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in “Native” $22 – I really enjoy the
formula of these lipsticks, and I don’t have anything like color! Love!
NARS Multiple in “South Beach” $39 – I have been intrigued by these for so long, but the price tag has always kept me away. Also the fact that I have tried a lot of cream blushes and haven’t really been satisfied with any of them. But when I played with this in store, I knew I had to have it. I chose this color because it looks beautiful as a bronzer. It is so creamy and blends like a dream!
The last thing I got from Sephora was my free birthday gift! It contains two NARS lip pencils in “Cruella” (left) and “Rikugien” (right). These are so pigmented and creamy!
Next up, my husband got me a gift card to Ulta (along with a couple of non-beauty related items that I love as well!). Also at Ulta, I had a $10 off anything coupon for my birthday. Here is what I picked out:
First up is this new eyeshadow palette from Lorac called the “PRO Metal Palette” $28 – I love all of the shimmery shades and there are several colors that I don’t have anything like. These shadows are so creamy and pigmented!!
Nyx Lip Pencil in “Peek-a-boo natural” $3.49 (+40% off) – Just a perfect rosy-nude lip liner!
Urban Decay Afterglow Long Wear Blush in “Rapture” $26 – These are new and I have been wanting to try them so bad. I don’t really love the price tag, but I decided to splurge since I had the gift card and $10 off. These claim to last 8 hours, so I have high hopes. I got this color because I really don’t have one like it, and when I swatched this in the store, it was so buttery smooth, I caved right then!
L’oreal Magic Lumi Highlighter in “Light” $12.99 (+40% off) – I saw a youtuber use this under her eyes mixed with her concealer, and I love how it adds a brightening effect! Can’t wait to try this out!
The last thing I bought for myself was a gift set from The Body Shop. I have really been wanting to try the new scent “Fuji Green Tea” and when I saw this little gift set, I knew it was the perfect size to try it out before committing to the full size products. This set was $10 and contains a mini shower gel, mini body butter, and a loofa. So far, I am in love with this scent…it is so clean and fresh!
I had the most wonderful birthday and I am so thankful to have so many wonderful people in my life! And a big thank you to all of you for your amazing support on my blog!
