What I Got For My Birthday | Makeup Edition

Hey beaut's!

On the 31st August it was my birthday, as much as I detest turning another year older I absolutely loved my birthday this year, I was woken up by my boyfriend in the morning who had made me pancakes with nutella and strawberries for breakfast and when I went down stairs he had decorated our house with balloons and banners whilst I was asleep bless him, it looked so good and I was actually tearing up. 
I got totally spoilt by my friends and family this year, I have enough flowers in my house to open my very own florist, a huge birthday cake that could feed the five thousand that my parents had made for me as well as lots or presents and money, so today I thought I would share with you all the makeup bits and pieces I got. I just want to add in no way am I bragging, I personally love reading these sort of posts so hopefully you will enjoy it too!

The first few makeup bits and pieces I got where from my boyfriend, he took me shopping in Norwich for the day and let me choose a few gifts and the first thing I had my heart set on was something from Charlotte Tilbury, I cant tell you how long I have lusted after a piece of makeup from Charlotte Tilbury but finally the Dolce Vita Palette is mine and I'm so in love with it. He also bought me the Urban Decay First Hit Travel Kit which I think is just amazing value, it was £15.00 and I love the fact you get four things to try. I had also been after the new Real Techniques sponges and Boots finally had them in so I got the miracle sculpting sponge and the 2 miracle mini eraser sponges, both of which are amazing by the way.
My Mum and Dad kindly got me the Too Faced Born This Way Foundation, Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer and the MAC lipstick in Twig, all of which I've wanted to try for ages and wow Twig is my new favourite lipstick, it's very similar to MAC's Brave but slightly darker, it will be perfect for Autumn and Winter.
Finally my gorgeous girlie's bought me more MAC treats, Kate from Kates Closet bought me the Soar Lip Liner I've been wanting for ages and a Barry M Molten Metal nail polish and my friend Amie got me another one of my beloved MAC Brave lipsticks as mine that I have currently is nearly all gone.

And there you have it beaut's, the makeup I got for my birthday! Do let me know if you have any of these makeup bit and what you think of them! I'd love to know!
