Happy Monday Everyone..

I thought I would do a beauty haul of some of my favourite products throughout February that I have bought and also products that I got given from my amazing friends for my birthday! I spent Saturday night celebrating turning 19 and was absolutely spoilt from my friends and family so I thought I would share some of the beauty products I got given with you. Click on the names of these products to shop them!

How gorgeous is Dior packaging? 

The wrapping and the containers of the products make it such a lovely gift to give or receive- It's such a special treat that I probably wouldn't of treated myself to! So I'm excited! Inside, there is the Dior Lip Maximiser - Collagen Active Lip-Gloss..I've had my eye on this product for so long now and was so happy when I got it! I've tried it a couple times now and I love it, It doesn't have that thick sticky texture like other lip plumper's and doesn't have that horrible sting, it has a little tingle but nothing that bothers me! It really does make my lips feel bigger but it also makes them so soft and even tastes like vanilla, my fave! It's perfect because it isn't very coloured so you can wear it beneath any colour of lipstick or gloss and still have your lips plumped up!

I haven't used this highlighter yet as i'm trying to keep it good for's far to pretty to use! I love everything about it even though I haven't used it. The packaging it came in is so chic and it even came with its own little kabuki brush which is so! How amazing is the pattern on this? I love the 'nude'..I think it also comes in different colours for other skin tones, but the nude is perfect for mine! 

Spring starts tomorrow and the perfect Mac blush has came my way just in time! "Springsheen" is the perfect colour for spring, it's a lovely pinky/coral shade with a little bit of shimmer through it, I love it! I have been lusting over "Global Glow" from Mac for so long now, but I just never really treat myself to make-up that often. I'm so glad it's finally mine, it's highlight heaven!

Everyone needs this product it's so golden and will be perfect for that bronzed glow in summer!


Tom Ford lipsticks are such a luxurious product to have, every girl has to have at least a few high end lipsticks! The packaging is the perfect accessory for your night-time clutch bag and the colour of this lipstick is amazing..I love peachy/nudes especially for Spring approaching and "Bare Peach" is the perfect in-between, It's very smooth to apply but also luminous which I love for Summer.. I don't think I could bare matte lipstick in a hot climate so I'll definitely be keeping this product good for my Summer adventures! 


I've heard so much about the St Tropez dry oil and was so excited to try! I done a quick application of this on my legs on Saturday and it literally dried in 2 minutes..this is perfect for me because I hate the sticky feeling of fake tan, especially whilst trying to sleep. So i'm so excited that I now have this product, it will definitely be my new go-to..It even has a bronze shimmer in it for that instant glow. My skin is going to be glowing with all these new bronzers and highlighters..Woo! 

I have used Decleor products before and they are honestly the most amazing skin products. They make your face feel so smooth and they smell amazing!! I have been using this cleansing oil for the past few days and my skin feels so soft. I love it! 


Throughout January/February I have been loving matte liquid lipsticks! Both NYX and the Kylie Lip Kit have been raved about everywhere and i'm 100% also on that bandwagon! I love the Kylie Lip Kit, I have the colour "Candy K" and it looks more brown on me than pink but I still really like it. The lip liner is probably my favourite bit about the lip kit, it goes on so smooth! The only thing that annoys me about the actual liquid lipstick is that it goes really dry quite quick and sometimes starts to flake off..which is never good, but it still love the look of it on! 

NYX matte lip creams have the same look as the Kylie Lip Kit with that matte finish but they don't actually feel dry on my lips at all, they actually feel very smooth with a buttery/balmy finish, I can wear these all day. From left to right the colours are "San Paulo", "Cairo" and "Milan". Cairo is a bit light for my lips so I mix it with Milan and it turns out a perfect light pink which is my favourite lip combo right now.
