What I Got For My Birthday - Beauty Edition 2017

It was my birthday on Tuesday and I was lucky enough to receive some fab beauty gifts. My wishlist wasn't too long this year because I'm at the stage where I am really happy with my collection and actually want to use the products that I have rather than constantly adding to it. I haven't had a chance to use everything yet but I will share my thoughts on everything in future posts, for now I just wanted to show you my beauty gifts!

I have a few makeup bits and most of them are new releases. The first is Kevyn Aucoin The Etherealist Super Natural Concealer, which I have already used and I love it as it contains hyaluronic acid, making it perfect for my under eye area due to how hydrating it is. It's highly pigmented but doesn't feel heavy on the skin and doesn't crease and the brightening pearls make it perfect for the under eye area but means it wouldn't be suitable for blemishes.

I don't own any lip toppers so I was delighted to receive BECCA Liquid Crystal Glow Gloss in the shade Champagne Dream x Bellini, which is a golden-peachy shade. I've only worn it once so far and I really love it - it makes my lips look plump and is non-sticky - so far, so good!

I have a mini bottle of Cover Fx Custom Enhancer Drops in Moonlight, which I'm obsessed with and knew I wanted a full size so I put it on my wishlist. I actually received Sunlight but it looks very similar so I am excited to use these drops!

I'm a huge fan of Anastasia Beverly Hills eye shadows (brand focus post here) so when I heard that she was releasing a new palette, I put it straight on my wish list. Some of the shades in Subculture are definitely not what I would ordinarily go for and I know that there has been some controversy about the quality of this palette so I will share my thoughts on it with you soon.

Nicole from The Glam Surge recommended Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask recently and it sounded amazing so it went straight on my wish list. I have used it twice so far and can definitely agree with Nicole - this leaves my lips feeling baby soft the morning after using it! I love it!

Another recommendation from one of my blogger friends is Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask, which Nida from Caked To The Nines recommended. I have't used this yet but will definitely report back on it when I've given it a good trial.

Have you used any of these products? What do you like to do on your birthday?
