Birthday Beauty Haul!

4 years ago

Hey everyone! It`s been a while since I`ve been on LUUUX, and I miss making posts. May is such a busy month for me, with AP exams and concerts and projects... and also my 17th birthday! So here`s my beauty-related birthday haul. :)

I got:
-Daisy by Marc Jacobs gift set (includes 1.7 fl oz eau de toilette spray, 2.5 fl oz body lotion, and 2.5 fl oz shower gel)
-MAC Studio Sculpt foundation in NC30
-MAC Studio Sculpt concealer in NC20

I got a bag of Sephora samples from my friend as well, as a sort of extra gift. The samples are:
-Clarisonic Skin Care Nourishing Care cleanser (1 fl oz)
-Clarisonic Skin Care Refreshing Gel cleanser (1 fl oz)
-Clarisonic Skin Care Gentle Hydro cleanser (1 fl oz)
-L`Occitane gloss lissant smoothing gloss (0.27 fl oz)
-LUSH Sultana of Soap
-Cartier Baiser Vole perfume
-Clean Cotton T-Shirt perfume
-Tarte smooth operator Amazonian clay eye base
-Marc Jacobs Daisy perfume
-StriVectin-SD Intensive Concentrate for Existing Stretch Marks
-Amazing Cosmetics Amazing concealer
-Boscia Peppermint blotting papers

And now, I`m going to ramble about some of these things. If anyone would like me to review anything listed here, please tell me!

I`m really glad with what I got. I`m a sucker for nice perfumes and cute perfume bottles and Daisy fits the bill perfectly. I also love that the gift set included the shower gel and lotion, which is great for layering since Daisy is only an eau de toilette.

I`ve never gotten a higher-end foundation, and decided to give it a try for several reasons. I wanted a better quality foundation, and I also found a hard time finding a truly correct shade. So I ended up going to a MAC counter and getting shade matched for Studio Sculpt foundation. I had been reading reviews on it and it has what I`m looking for (natural finish, medium-full coverage, long-lasting, etc.). I actually used it today, but it didn`t last as long as I wanted it to. A lot of the foundation on my cheek area (where I need the most coverage) had worn off. However, keep in mind I didn`t use a face primer, and my loose powder isn`t the best quality. I`ll probably end up doing a review for you guys soon once I`ve used it enough.

I used the Boscia blotting papers today, and it was good. It got the job done and smelled nice. :)

I`m really excited to try some of the samples, including the Sultana of Soap, Tarte smooth operator, and Amazing Cosmetics amazing concealer. So glad my friend gave me these samples! I`d actually smelled Daisy for the first time from the sample, and it convinced me to get the full-size. I`d actually been interested in it since seeing the adorable packaging, but never got to smell it until then.

That`s my haul! Thank you for reading! :)
