Birthday Haul!

I mentioned in Friday's post that my husband and I celebrated my birthday shopping all over the place. We had a blast - I'm lucky to have a husband who enjoys shopping as much as I do. I found some goodies, and I allowed myself to splurge on myself as a birthday treat. I thought I'd share with you all what I picked up. The above shows some purchases I made, as well as some gifts!

  • Rimmel Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation - I've heard lots about this foundation, and as an avid lover of the Stay Matte Powder, I had to give this a go. I've tried it a couple times so far, and you'll hear more from me about this in a future post.
  • Dior Creme De Rose Smoothing Plumping Lip Balm - Ya'll know I was lusting after this in February, and my sweet husband gifted this to me for my birthday. It's everything I thought it would be and more! I'm in love.  
  • Mario Badescu Drying Lotion - I get the occasional zit, and I've heard this little bottle is all you need to zap any unfortunate spot. I haven't tried it yet, but I'm glad to have it in my army of acne-fighting products.
  • China Glaze: It's a Trap-Eze - It's not like me to grab a nail polish that isn't in the clearance aisle, but this one spoke to me! It has a milky base with multicolored glitter and it just looks awesome.
  • RoC Daily Resurfacing Disks - I don't know what possessed me to grab these off the shelf, but I did and I'm excited to use them.
  • Lush Prince shaving cream - I think this is actually geared toward men, but I wanted to try it out on my legs. It smells really earthy and nice.

I also got some lippies, too! My favorite!!! Lipsticks are listed left to right.

  • Revlon Jungle Peach lipstick - This is one of the limited edition Legacy lipsticks, and unfortunately it doesn't look very good on me. It looks much more orange when on my lips. :(
  • NYX Butter Gloss in Sugar Cookie - I am obsessed with these butter glosses. They're really hydrating and have great color pay off. Sugar Cookie is a really pretty hot pink shade, and I believe it's one of the new shades recently released.
  • Revlon Snow Peach lipstick - Another Legacy lipstick and I absolutely LOVE this color. It's going to be great for summer. Swatches to come!

Have you tried any of these products? Let me know!


  1. Wow what a fabulous selection, hope to see some review posts coming soon!

    1. Oh there will definitely be some! And you're so welcome - loving your blog! :)

  2. What a great haul! I've heard so many good things about Dior's Creme De Rose! Xx

  3. Happy Belated Birthday! I'm also a March birthday, mine was on the 13th. You picked out some fun stuff! The NYX butter glosses, do you find they have staying power? Or do you need to constantly reapply?

    1. Thanks, Katie! And happy belated birthday to you, too! I absolutely LOVE the NYX Butter Glosses, but they don't have staying power. They take some reapplying throughout the day. They're great for a quick pop of color that moisturises, too.

  4. i love the nyx matte lipsticks! i have whipped cavier and perfect red (which is seriously a perfect red). i'd like to try the butter glosses but i have so many of their regular lip glosses already.
    A Beautiful Zen

    1. I hadn't tried them until now, but I can see why you love them! The butter glosses are seriously so amazing - you need to try them! They're my fave.
