Birthday Beauties!

Birthday Beauties!


It was my birthday on Saturday and I was spoilt by my family and friends. I got some gorgeous presents and some great new makeup items which I thought I would share with you. I have been coveting many of them for a while now. I am going to showcase swatches and more details in a future post, so this is just a little taster for now!


Although not strictly makeup related I had to put in a photo of my new fringed suede bag from my sister which I absolutely love (I have been hankering after a fringed bag for a while now!) I also got some new earrings and a book, which is going straight in my suitcase ready for my holidays…love a bit of chick lit!


This is a brief description of some of the makeup related presents I received from my wonderful friends and family and I will do some more detailed follow-up posts on the colours etc when I have had chance to try them all.

Models Own Colour Lipstix – This is a new one for me, having tried the polishes before but never the makeup and after trying today, I love the colour and texture.

Lancôme Rouge in Love Lipstick – Pink Bonbon – a bright matte pink (A great choice of colour,  I cannot wait to wear this one!)

Chanel Le Vernis Nail Colour – Tapage (605) – This gorgeous glossy red shade has been on my wishlist for months ( if you follow me on Pinterest – I think this has appeared in several of my wishlists!) Thanks Mum!!

Loreal Sublime Bronze Express Pro Self Tanning Dry Mist – Medium – This is great self tanner I have used previously which gives a very even colour.

YSL Le Teint Touche Éclat – BD50 Beige Dore – This is another product I have been lusting after for a while. YSL have some great makeup and I had a bit of a list which I gave to my husband in case he needed any ideas!

YSL Touche Éclat Radiant Touch – 3 Luminous Peach – the highlighter I always go back to and another one on my list ( see above!)

YSL Kiss & Blush Lips & Cheeks – 5 Rouge Effrontee – This is a vivid coral red colour, perfect for my holidays.

YSl Coutute Palette – No.3 – An amazing palette containing 5 really wearable shades ( I will swatch these in a future post)

Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet – This is a beautiful floral scent from Christian Dior in a pretty little bottle.

Topshop Velvet Finish Lipstick – Infrared – My great friend got me this. I had actually seen the shade in an issue of Marie Claire and had meant to get this but she beat me to it! It’s an intense matte orange shade and I will definitely get a lot of wear out of this shade.





  1. Twitter showed me your site, it was a good find! So many nice presents, very beautiful colors! You’ll love YSL Touche Eclat. It’s really the best foundation I have worn! Nice that you got it! Hope you have a nice week!

    • Thank you, yes I really like the foundation, gives great luminous coverage.
