Hello beautiful people!
I just wanted to show you some fun makeup I received for my birthday! There were three items gifted to me from my boyfriend’s mom, and then some makeup brushes I bought myself as a gift (haha, that was my excuse for purchasing them anyway!).
My boyfriend’s mom gave me the Too Faced Sugar Pop palette, a Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in the shade “Opal”, and a Too Faced Melted Matte Liquid Lipstick in the shade “Cool Girl”.
I ordered these four ADORABLE brushes from Wet N Wild, which are vegan and cruelty-free! The bristles are a white to pink ombre color, but as you can see, I’ve been using these brushes a lot and their original coloring is hidden beneath eyeshadow pigments!
I won’t go into too much about the brushes, but I have to say for the price I paid, these brushes are durable, super cute, and help pick up eye shadow very easily. They are my go-to brushes to use with the eye-shadows I create/make, and I am happy I invested the money to order these from the Wet N Wild website.
As for my other birthday makeup gifts, let me start with the Too Faced palette! I am IN LOVE with this!! I didn’t expect to like the color scheme so much, however, since I’ve been playing with it for a week, the colors are SO VERSATILE. I really love the bigger pans (Rock Candy, Strawberry Ice, Peach Fuzz) as all-over lid colors, and Macaron has to be one of my favorite colors out of all 9 in the palette! Blackberry is also a great outer-v shade when it’s buffed out, as is Malted Milk Ball. These colors stay put all day, and are really creamy, pigmented, and easy to apply!
This Becca highlighter is literally to die for! My boyfriend’s mom has told me in the past it is her holy grail highlighter, and now I understand why! A little goes a long way with this highlight, and it really helps the face glow! ❤ I can’t get enough of it. I have been using it every day since she gave it to me, and I am so happy I have a new highlighter I know works for me and my skin tone.
I’ve heard so many great things about the Too Faced Melted lip products, and these liquid matte tubes were new-ish, so my boyfriend’s mom also decided to give me one to try. This is a really pretty matte neutral brown/nude. It has cool undertones, and it literally stays in place for HOURS. Literally hours. Liquid matte lipsticks really stick to the creases in my lips (I have chronically dry lips), so I have to exfoliate them and moisturize before applying this. However, it looks gorgeous on and I really like the consistency and texture.
My sister also gave me a $50 gift card to Ulta, and a few days ago I ordered a few things I’ve been meaning to pick up! I expect to receive that package tomorrow, and I am really excited to do an unboxing of all of these new fun products!
Do you have any of these makeup products? Have you tried any of them? Do you like the Wet N Wild brushes? Let me know!
Thanks for reading Leaps fans, and in near-future posts you will see a post about my Ulta order, a Vera Bradley order I made when they had their 4th of July sale, a post about new shadows I’ve been making (Leaps of Faith Vegan & Cruelty-Free Homemade Eyeshadow), my July Ipsy bag, and maybe even my Profusion Cosmetics ProBox that should be shipping to my house soon! ❤ There are so many fun things I want to show you all, so keep your eyes out!
Until next time beauties!
