So you may or may not know, but I turned 33 not too long ago! I got some excellent presents from my husband (first birthday since the wedding, still odd saying husband!). I also had some vouchers to spend, so I’ve been accumulating these lovely goodies for a few weeks, time to share!
First up the presents from Simon. He gave me a 1.8kg jar of Jelly Belly beans, I am a bit of a jelly bean fan, they’re my favourites so this makes me happy! He also gave me some Harry Potter goodness, a Gryffindor Team Quidditch tee, the Hogwarts Library set and a “This way to the Ministry of Magic” sticker for our toilet cistern. Love the tee, can’t wait to read my books and I’m off to stick the sticker on after I’ve written this post! The final gift from my OH is a Suction Cup for our go pro and some extra wee bits to hold the go pro and a new go pro case, this is also exciting! You’ll understand if you ever watch our vlog channel, we’ve had sound issues with the go pro recordings. The new case should fix that!
I treated myself to some face charts, which I cannot wait to play with! I can finally test out more looks without applying anything to my face, therefore I don’t have to remove the makeup and dry my skin out! Winner! I bought these from ProChart, I went with the ProPack which included an eye chart, A4 face chart and an A3 face chart! It’s like colouring in for makeup fans!
Now for the beauty products!!! I had some Debenhams and John Lewis vouchers that were in dire need to spending. So when Debenhams had their discount on during National Lipstick day, I made use of it! From Urban Decay I bought two Revolution lipsticks*, my first lipsticks from this line. I went with Manic as a more wearable colour and F-Bomb as a fabulous vibrant red. I’ve swatched all the lipsticks in the video, you can check it out below. I also bought a bareMinerals Marvelous Moxie* lipstick in a fabulous peach coral shade Light It Up. The final lipstick I bought from Debenhams was a mac cremesheen* lipstick in Hot Gossip. I got some freebies with my parcels, from Lancome I got a Soothing Anti-Stress Moisturising Cream sample, an Eye Contour Gel Cream sample and a mini Hypnose Mascara Volume sample. I also got a john varvatos Artisan Black hair and body wash – which is for men I think (it’s not in the picture).
I ordered two replacement tubs of the Waxperts pads from Mise Beauty website (my first time ordering from them & I only included one tub in the photo), I got two samples with my order, which was a lovely surprise! I got the Ginvera Green Tea Nude Cover BB Cream and a Ginvera Green Tea Exfoliating Marvel Gel. I bought a Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge* my previous sponge has died. Another free gift with purchase is the Dr Ceuticals Beach Perfect Body Firmer, I got this when I bought some drawers from Very*. You might have seen the drawers in my recent bedroom post .
Finally from John Lewis I bought the Dior DiorSkin Nude foundation* in 010 Ivory, I love this foundation, I’ve talked about it in a review here. So pleased to finally own it! Another Dior product is the Dior Addict Limited Edition Lipstick* in 571 Windrose, it’s a lovely sheer pinky coral shade. From Benefit I got the Gimme Brow* brow-volumising fiber gel in light/medium.
I am expecting a few other things from John Lewis they’re just taking a while to get here. So expect another haul soon! I had to do this so I could finally play with all of these lovely goodies!!
Thanks for reading!
