Birthday Beauty Buys


After receiving some money from members of my family for my 21st birthday a few weeks ago, it was inevitable that I was going to hit the shops as soon as possible! As well as buying quite a few items of clothing, which I am sure that I will haul soon, I wanted to pick up a few new beauty bits too. I didn't go out with the mindset of buying anything in particular, I simply wanted to browse and see what caught my eye. I ended up getting three new products; two new additions and one old favourite! So without any further ado, let's take a look at what I picked up.

One of the first shops that I went into was Lush. Even though I received quite a lot of their products for my birthday because my friends know that I am a Lush addict, it was all bath & shower related items. So, I wanted to treat myself to some skincare too. First of all, I choose to purchase an all time  favourite of mine - Ultrabland Cleanser (£7.25.) I absolutely love this cleanser as it is rich and oily enough to remove really heavy make-up but it is gentle too. I love the fact that all of Lush's skincare is made of natural ingredients that work wonders for your skin!

Whilst I was in Lush, I also wanted to try out a new product that I had heard lots of great things about, which was the Tea Tree Water Toner (£4.25.) A toner is something that I have been missing from my skincare routine and I thought that it would be interesting to see what a difference using one would make to the condition of my skin. Due to the fact that I have an oily skin type, the sales assistant recommended this toner water in particular - especially as I suffer from the occasional pesky spot breakout too. I am excited to see how this mist works out for me!

I also popped into Debenhams as they had 10% off of all beauty products, which is something that I could definitely not ignore. I went straight over to the Urban Decay counter and the 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil in Turn On (£13.50) instantly caught my eye. It is such a gorgeous dusky pink colour that really suits my complexion. From what I can tell just from swatching it on my hand, it is creamy and I can imagine that it will be very long-lasting too. As lip liner is something that I am really getting into lately, I'm tempted to go back and buy another shade too - I have my eye on either '69' or 'Anarchy.'

So, those are the couple of beauty bits that I have bought over the past week or so. What do you think of my purchases? Have you used any of these products before? Please let me know by leaving a little comment down below!
