What I got for my Birthday!



So it was birthday last week. I got some exciting gifts so I thought I'd share them with you.

Sony A5000 Camera | £329

I didn't really get a lot of beauty bits because this was main present! I've wanted to upgrade my camera for ages so I thought this was the perfect time. I was torn between this and the Olympus Pen but I went for this because it has really good reviews and it was slightly cheaper. I don't know a lot about cameras and photography so I wanted something that was going to improve my photos but was easy to use. And this really is so easy! I'm still playing with the settings and trying to find the best way to use it but so far so good!

Anastasia Beverly Hills Subculture Palette | £41

I treated myself to this on my actual birthday. And I really don't think this deserves all the hate it's getting! Granted, the shadows are slightly harder to blend but they are so soft and pigmented. I have a full review of this here so check that out for more details.

Juvia's Palace The Saharan | £29

This brand recently launched on Beauty Bay and I've heard amazing things about the eyeshadows so I added it to my wishlist and I was super happy to see it! I've only used it once but so far I really like it! Most of the shades are warmed toned, really pigmented and easy to blend.

SmashBox Cassie Homes Highlighting Palette | £26

This was a gift from the lovely Dagmara, Siobhan and Dorota. They know me too well because I love highlighters! This palette contains 3 different toned highlighters. I can't wait to use it!

Charlotte Tilbury Light Wonder Foundation | £32

I've wanted this foundation for ages! It really does have a dewy finish and light-medium coverage. I'm still having a play with this so I will report but very soon.

Keep you eye's peeled for full reviews of these!

Until next time...
