Birthday Beauty Treats!

Birthday Beauty Treats!

I am really late writing this post as my birthday was in July and I have kept meaning to do a short post on some of the gorgeous goodies I received for my birthday. I have finally got round to putting something together!

I received an array of beauty treats including the amazing firming cream from Nuxe which I did ask for! The Nuxe Fondant Firming cream is pure indulgence and it smells as good as it sounds. It is a really rich formulation which sinks in easily and helps to firm and tighten the skin. I have been using regularly since July (it’s nearly finished) and I have definitely seen an improvement in the appearance of the skin on my stomach area. I would definitely use again.

I got a lovely eye compact ‘Brown Eyed Girl’ from one of my friends from the Tropic range, which is becoming a firm favourite now. The palette contains four really wearable shades and the formulation is great, they are really pigmented and long lasting.

I received some lovely lipcolours too, varying in shades which is great as I love to experiment with different looks. Estee Lauder Pure Colour Envy Shine, this is a great formulation, glossy and long lasting. The Topshop lipstick shade ‘Saint’ is a really creamy light nude and I haven’t worn a light shade like this for ages but it works really well with the eye palette above and is great to wear when playing up the eye area. The lip crayon from Seventeen is a zingy orange shade and is another really glossy formulation. I love lip crayons as they make applying lipstick so easy and get rid of the need for a lip brush.

My friends and family know me too well and know how much I love a nail polish. Again, I got a real mixture of colours and formulations from Barry M, Seventeen and Bourjois and I love them all.
