It was my birthday on Wednesday and I'm now officially closer to 30 than I am 20....eek! No one usually buys me make up for my birthday because I have so much of it that they flat out refuse, so make up and beauty products are always a gift from me to me.
On my birthday I placed an order from beautybay.com and it lucky for me it arrived the very next day. Here is what I got...
In my recent make up wish list post, I mentioned that this ZOEVA brush set was top of my list. This set contains ten face and eye brushes and comes with a make up pouch. The brushes are gorgeous and so unbelievably soft! I am in love. The make up bag is also great quality which is unusual for this type of item. I am so impressed with ZOEVA; for such affordable brushes they are so well made.
Can we all just take a minute to admire the ombre perfection?! How pretty is this bronzer from Kevyn Aucoin?! I am a huge fan of his make up range so thought that this bronzer looked really nice. The ombre effect allows you to pick your shade or swirl together for a gorgeous golden glow. This has a finely milled shimmer to it so isn't great for contour but instead is spot on for adding that bronzed radiance to the skin. It has no orange tone it which is great and really gives the skin a glow. This on top of a natural golden tan....yesssssss!
My Charlotte Tilbury eyeliner pen has started to dry out slightly so I thought I would give ZOEVA's Cat Eye Pen a go. For just over £5 I didn't think I could go wrong. This is very black but slightly drier than I like, that being said, it does the job.
I have been searching everywhere for a good peachy coral lip liner. Lip liners are big news at the moment, with the Kylie Jenner colours being the most sought after. Peachy corals lipliners are actually hard to find, would you believe. Energised is such a beautiful colour, very pigmented yet not drying at all. This will go perfectly with my peachy coral lipsticks that I have been obsessed with lately. Also I love that it is a retractable pencil; woohoo no sharpening!
Along with my order I received a free sample of CLEAN's Warm Cotton fragrance which smells exactly like fresh laundry....so good! With other scents such as cool cotton, skin and rain, I'm intrigued to smell their other fragrances.
