The Makeup I Got For My Birthday

As you may have seen from my post last week, I have just turned 22. For the first time, I feel old. For some reason 21 didn’t have any effect on me at all, but for some reason 22 just seems like a big number. I am no longer anywhere near my teenage years!

So, this post is all about the makeup that I got for my birthday. My friends and family really do know me so well because I was inundated with makeup and gift cards to makeup stores. I don’t want to make this post super long like I know I can do, so I will just jump into it.

1)          Urban Decay Naked Weightless Concealer

I have been wanting this concealer for the longest time because every blogger and their mother talks about it. I have to say that I can honestly see why. It is super creamy and so highly pigmented. I can see this lasting me absolutely ages. I have used it more or less every day since I bought it and I am hooked!

2)          Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation

This is another one of them products that I just wanted to try because everybody in the world owned it other than me, well it seemed like that. I was sceptical going to use this because of my oily skin type but I didn’t have any issues at all. I make sure that I use a mattifying primer around my nose where I can be particularly oily and that controls that area perfectly. Then for the rest of the face this just makes me look fresh, bright and awake!

3)          Bobbi Brown Foundation Stick

I love a foundation stick because they allow me to be lazy. I wanted this to contour with. I apply this in the deep shade chestnut to the hallows of my cheekbones, forehead, under the jawline and ever so slightly down my nose. Then I blend it out. I love this because it adds the colour and the contour to the face but the coverage isn’t over the top so it keeps the face look very natural and not cakey.

4)          Charlotte Tilbury Legendary Brows

Everybody who knows me knows that I am obsessed with my brows. I am a perfectionist when it comes to them so I always want to try new products that I can use to get them looking full and natural. So when I first saw this product I told everybody about it and luckily enough people listened to me and I got it for my birthday. This stuff adds fine particles to each eyebrow hair and makes them look fuller without adding a block colour to your brow like using a pomade. I cannot wait to use this more!

5)          Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer

I love this concealer so much. It is a cult product for a reason and as the name suggests it is radiant and creamy. I love to apply this under my eyes and then blend it out using my damp Beauty Blender. It just leaves a very natural but full coverage and perfected look. I would compare this to the Maybelline Fit Me concealer but with more coverage!

6)          Makeup Forever HD Foundation Stick

I really wanted a great foundation for when I am on the go and this is the perfect. I think like everybody else I have seen bloggers going on about this for such a long time. It is a beautiful product and blends away like a dream. Like everything else a full review is coming up, but just know that I really love this product!

7)          Tom Ford Lipstick in Indian Rose

I have wanted a Tom Ford lipstick for such a long time but I just couldn’t bring myself to spend £40 on a lipstick, I will repeat that again £40! But this is so stunning. I wanted a nice neutral lip colour and this on me is almost like your lips but better colour. I have been constantly wearing this and loving it, the colour is perfect and so is the formula. The only issue is now that I know I am going to want to buy more shades!

8)          Cover FX Custom Cover Drops

I am somewhat obsessed when it comes to foundation and I order vast majority of them online, which means that sometimes I can get the shade of them a tad wrong. I wanted these drops in a deeper shade not only to add coverage to my foundations but to correct the shade. When I pair this with my Koh Gen Do Aqua foundation it is the perfect combo!

I am going to leave it there for this post. I could carry on but this would end up been a really long post. These are just the products that I have really been loving this past week. I will do you another post in another few weeks with the rest of the beauty products that I got for my birthday!

9)          Charlotte Tilbury Lipstick in Super Cindy

You guys may know this about me by now, but I am completely in love with Cindy Crawford. She is just everything right with the world. I have literally been obsessed with her since I started buying Vogue when I was incredibly young in the nineties. So, when Charlotte Tilbury came out with a lipstick named after the love of my life I knew I had to get it. It is a little lighter in shade than that classic Cindy Crawford colour but I still love it!

Full reviews will be uploaded soon on my blog of everything that I have mentioned in this post. And in case you want to check any of the items mentioned out I will add links to where you can find them.
