Birthday Haul: The Beauty Edition

I know I said that I would post this a couple of weeks ago but life got in the way and I didn't have the internet so I'm so sorry :( However, I've finally gotten round to posting it so please excuse me for being so tardy!!

First of all, as everyone knows I have a penchant for nail polishes. So for my birthday I was luckily treated to five of them, with three of my most sought after shades included!! These included Barry M's Tangerine and Yellow, as well as Essie's Clambake, Oui Madame and Apertif. I had been after a tomato-ey red for a while so I was chuffed when I got Essie's Clambake.

Then I got a little goodie bag of The Body Shop beauties. This included a cherry lip and body butter, some body lotion and some shower gel. They all smell so good that I could eat them, especially the lip butter, I lick it straight off my lips as soon as I put it on!!

I was also spoilt with my first MAC eyeshadow, from their Heavenly Creatures collection, Aurora. It is a beautiful mix of pinks, browns and corals and it is stunning to swatch.

If anyone knows me, they will know I am forever wishing for Chanel. I own countless quilted bags and shoes, and just think their collections are always timeless. So I was overwhelmed when I received my first ever Chanel item in the form of the Rouge Coco Shine lipstick in Boy. What an absolutely perfect present for me! Even better was that when purchasing the lipstick, my boyfriend had asked the assistant that 'it is for boys isn't it?' and hadn't gotten the most amused reply.

Next was a big surprise, I had wanted the Naked or Naked 2 palette for so long, as I'm a lover of neutral and nudey colours, nothing to loud goes on my eyes!! However, after knowing the Undressed palette was a massive dupe for it, I told my boyfriend to just get me the MUA one as it was a whole lot cheaper. So I was more than excited when I opened it up to see that I had got it. But after all my presents were opened, there was one more left... My boyfriend had also gone out and got me the Naked 2 palette as well! Needless to say I was in tears as I couldn't believe it had spoilt me like this. (He's definitely a keeper).

Last but absolutely by no means least is one of the most thoughtful presents I have ever had the pleasure to receive. My boyfriend has always been more than supportive of my blogging and my love of makeup, so I was so surprised when I opened up one of my presents to find a Glee tin. Then inside, was home made lip balm that Anthony had made me. BEST BOYFRIEND EVER right?? I am so blessed to have such an amazing man and let me tell you, the lip balm tastes absolutely delicious (chocolate of course).
